Top 5 plays of the week


Starting at number five, Athens has rolled out to a 5-0 start this season and sits atop the conference standings. It doesn't hurt when Shane Coker is making catches like this. Coker with the concentration to haul it in after it pops off his hand. Athens rolls to a 62-0 win over Thorp.

Number four, Nekoosa's Codey Ysquierdo is listed at 5-9, 155 pounds, but he hits like a full grown man! Ysquierdo lays out the defender on his way to the endzone. Nekoosa beats Westfield 44-28.

We head to the soccer field for number three. And this isn't something you see very often. DC Everest goalie Nate Kitchell makes the save, sees his man streaking downfield and fires away. John Rohr gets behind the defense and he fires it home to give the goalie, Kitchell, his first career assist. That sealed a 2-0 Everest win that gave Wausau East its first conference loss.

We head back to the gridiron and one of the best rivalries in the state for number two. The Edgar defense was dominant against Stratford, but the Tigers capitalized on their opportunities. Trailing 8-0, Stratford blocks the field goal, Nolan Bargender picks it up and returns it 77 yards for the touchdown. The Tigers would tie the game at eight.

But, we stay with this game for our number one play of the week. First, Kaleb Wolf hits the field goal in overtime to give Edgar a three point lead and the Wildcats defense would seal it after that.

Stratford goes for the win in overtime, but Dalton Schroeder picks it off in the endzone to seal an 11-8 Edgar win.
