C.J. Zimmerman led Fort (1-5, 0-4) with 164 yards rushing on 23 carries, while Frankiewicz completed 10 of 14 passes for 118 yards.


It was Fort Atkinson’s second straight overtime loss and knocked the Blackhawks out of WIAA playoff contention for the first in eight years under coach Steve Mahoney.
