“Was Cadott better than us? Absolutely. We showed some real promise though,” Boyceville coach Michael Roemhild said.

Quarterback Connor Sempf was 3-for-17 for 62 yards connecting with Brendan Sempf for 31 yards and Jacob Granley for 25.

“Josiah Berg played amazing at linebacker and wing,” Roemhild said. “Mason Bowell as a freshmen played great at defensive end. Jacob Granley really started to get the hang of linebacker and enjoyed it. Brendan Hazelton played his best game of the year at defensive end.”

Roemhild said the game will be the beginning of a turnaround for the program as the Bulldogs head into the offseason with with motivation. An “uncalled hit” in the third quarter left Preston Coombs injured. Following conference realignment by the WIAA Cadott will join the Dunn-St. Croix beginning next year.

“The way things went in Cadott lit a fire under everyone,” Roemhild said.
