“It has been a long time since I have been in an intense, exciting game like tonight,” Boyceville coach Michael Roemhild said. “Tonight brought me back to the time when we were successful in football. Tonight, though stressful, was the reason I began coaching again. Tonight this young team grew. Tonight they hurdled obstacles thrown at them and would not accept defeat.
“To be able to travel seven miles down the road, against an old rivalry, and leave with a W is the very reason I am proud of this Boyceville Bulldog football team.”
