STEVENS POINT — A strong defensive effort and a long touchdown run by Brant Bohman lifted the Marshfield football team to its second-straight win, a 17-14 decision over Stevens Point on Friday at Goerke Field.
Marshfield held Stevens Point scoreless through three quarters, and Bohman’s 56-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter gave the Tigers enough breathing room to hold off the Panthers.
Marshfield is now 3-2 overall and 2-2 in the Valley Football Association West Division. Stevens Point drops to 1-4 and 0-4 in conference play.
Ryan Krueger had a 1-yard touchdown run to give the Tigers a 7-0 lead at halftime.
Mason Coffren kicked a 38-yard field goal in the third quarter, and after a Stevens Point touchdown, Bohman ripped off his long TD run to put Marshfield up 17-7.
Bohman had 65 yards rushing, Krueger added 46 yards on the ground, and Isaiah Baierl rushed for 44 yards as the Tigers controlled the clock through their running game.
