Janesville Craig junior running back Marshaun Harriel turns upfield after making a short reception during a prep football game at Waunakee on Friday. Waunakee won 47-7.

Waunakee made quick work of Janesville Craig in Week 3 of the alternate fall football season.

The host Warriors jumped out to a 47-0 halftime lead and coasted to a 47-7 win. The second half was played with a running clock due to Waunakee’s 35-point lead.

Waunakee (3-0) got three first-half touchdown passes from quarterback Quentin Keene and two TD runs each from Caden Nelson and Michael Gnorski. The Warriors finished with 447 yards of offense, including 237 passing.

Craig avoided the shutout with Tyler Steuck’s 22-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.

“I loved our effort tonight,” Craig coach Adam Bunderson said. “Our kids played hard the entire game and displayed much better poise tonight.

“The telling moment was getting off the bus tonight, and the kids were disappointed that we don’t have a game next week.”

Craig (0-3) was scheduled to play Fort Atkinson next Friday, but the game was canceled by Fort Atkinson due to COVID concerns.
