Edgar dominates to end
Eau Claire Regis put together a 12-play drive to start Thursday afternoon’s WIAA Division 6 state championship football game at Camp Randall Stadium, but failed on a fourth-and-1. Three plays later, Edgar was in the end zone.
Quarterback Justin Sinz threw for three touchdowns, and Edgar went on to a convincing 46-7 victory over Regis for its first state title since 2001.
The Wildcats (14-0) outscored opponents 651-20 on the season, including 212-14 in five playoff games.
The Edgar offense was tremendously efficient Thursday, rolling up more than 40 points for the 12th time this season despite having the ball for only 10:35.
Seniors Anthony Parker and Brian Fellers each ran for more than 100 yards to carry Fond du Lac Springs to a 42-7 victory over Arcadia in the WIAA Division 5 state final.
Parker finished with 116 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries, while Fellers added 107 yards and a score on 18 attempts for the Ledgers (14-0).
Senior quarterback Brian Fliess ran for three touchdowns as Burlington Catholic Central repeated as WIAA Division 7 state champion by beating Chippewa Falls McDonell, 27-15.
The Hilltoppers (13-1), whose only loss was 7-0 to Wilmot in their season opener, became the first team to win more than one Division 7 title since the division was added in 2002.
Central dominated statistically, outgaining the Macks 320-133 and holding the ball for 33:21 of the 48-minute game. Junior Luke Ryba accounted for more than half of the yards for McDonell (10-4) with a 68-yard touchdown run with 1:46 to play and the outcome all but decided.
