Small School game
Little Chute receiver Parker Gloudemans caught two first-quarter touchdown passes in propelling the North to a 28-24 victory over the South in the Small School (Divisions 4-7) game before 2,500 spectators Saturday afternoon.
The South rallied from a 28-6 halftime deficit, scoring three fourth-quarter touchdowns.
“It was a good game,” said Cambridge receiver J.T. Parish, a UW-Whitewater recruit who caught four passes, including one for 37 yards. “We started slowly in the first half, but we picked it up and made it a game.”
Parish started the South’s rally, recovering a fumble at the North 34-yard line after a 46-yard punt by River Valley’s Cole Eastlick.
On the next play, Lake Mills quarterback Collin Moen tossed a 34-yard touchdown pass to Ozaukee receiver Michael Richter, cutting the deficit to 28-12.
“I thought it was really incredible,” Moen, a UW-La Crosse recruit, said about the experience. “I think the most fun I had was during the whole week before the game, getting to know guys who you were rivals with in high school. Then you come to camp and you spend the week getting to know them. The friendships and bonds we developed were great.”
Parish agreed, saying: “The week was a blast. It was one of the best weeks of my life — playing with all these guys. It was a whole new level from high school.”
Mineral Point quarterback Scott Pittz scored on a 1-yard run with 3:16 remaining as the South closed within 28-18.
Lodi’s Zach Steuck had a sack and teammate Skyler Kurt, two of the four Blue Devils in the game, had two tackles for loss for the South.
The teams combined to complete 46 of 76 passes for 554 yards and six touchdowns in the game, which lasted nearly 3 hours.
