By Paul Lecker
SPENCER – The Spencer/Columbus Catholic football team took another big step toward a WIAA postseason berth with a 60-14 pounding of Cadott in a Cloverbelt Conference matchup Friday night at Spencer High School.
Mitch Susa rushed for 181 yards and four first-half touchdowns to lead the Rockets in the rout.
Spencer/Columbus is now 4-1 overall and in the Cloverbelt Conference, and needs to win just one of its final three conference games to qualify for the WIAA playoffs. Cadott is now 1-4 overall and in the conference.
Tyler Voda added 112 yards on the ground for Spencer/Columbus, which had 467 yards rushing and only threw the ball twice the entire game as it was gaining 12.6 yards per rush attempt.
Freshman Hunter Luepke had 80 yards on just four carries, including a 59-yard touchdown run late, and Noah Zastrow returned an interception for a touchdown for the second straight week. Austin Post also returned an interception for a score for the Rockets.
Spencer/Columbus will play Eau Claire Regis (4-1, 3-1 Cloverbelt) on Saturday, Sept. 27, at Beell Stadium in Marshfield at 1 p.m. for Columbus Catholic High School’s homecoming game.
