BOYCEVILLE — The Boyceville football team eclipsed 300 yards on the ground in a 21-18 Dunn-St. Croix Conference win over Glenwood City on Friday.
“I am proud of the way our guys fought the whole game. Glenwood came out and hit us in the mouth the whole game,” Boyceville coach Michael Roemhild said.
Boyceville (2-1, 1-0) led the entire game as Brendan Sempf carried the ball for an eight-yard score with 4:13 left in the game to extend the lead to 21-12.
Sempf had 209 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries to lead the Boyceville offense. Logan Knudtson added 115 yards and a score on six attempts as the Bulldogs rushed for 339 yards in the victory.
“I thought Brendan Sempf and Logan Knudtson probably had their best games of their careers running the ball,” Roemhild said.
“I thought at times our offensive line really held their own and opened up some good holes for our backs to run through. We still aren’t clicking the way that I would like, but that will come with time.”
Connor Sempf completed 4-of-8 passes for 48 yards passing.
Boyceville continues conference play with a trip to Elk Mound on Friday.
“We are 2-1 overall and have reached a lot of goals that haven’t been reached in Boyceville for a while,” Roemhild said. “We got our first win in over a year, we got our first conference win in over a year, and we got our first home win in over a year. But we can’t be satisfied with that. More than that we can’t be satisfied with our execution during those wins.”
