(WAOW) - Three more area football teams took to the field Saturday with a trip to Camp Randall Stadium and the state championship on the line.

In division one, Stevens Point faced Marquette trying to reach the state championship for the first time since 1977.

The Panthers' defense had one of its best performances of the season, turning two turnovers into 14 points and holding Marquette to 53 yards of total offense en route to a 21-3 win.

Tanner Kolbeck ran for two scores and Bobby Gregorich punched in the third score for SPASH. The Panthers will face Waukesha West Friday at 4 p.m.

In division seven, Gilman faced its toughest test of the season, taking on a 12-0 Randolph squad that had given up just 13 points in the regular season.

The Pirates and Rockets battled back and forth early, but Gilman punched in a couple of late scores to advance to the state title for the first time since 2006.

Marshfield faced Cedarburg in division two and got into an early hole, but came out with back-to-back scores in the third quarter to tie it at 14.

But the Bulldogs turned it on late in the fourth quarter and scored three straight times to pull away for a 35-21 win.
