Trailways football: Oakfield, Markesan fall


Michael Liebelt ran an interception back for 25 yards and an Oakfield touchdown in the third quarter, but that’s all the points the Oaks managed against Hustisford on Friday in a 25-6 Falcons’ win.

“We just physically got beat,” said Oakfield coach Tim Sievert. “They were big up front and they moved us around. Offensively, we just couldn’t get it going. We had a couple nice drives that ended in mistakes that cost us.”

Oakfield rushed for 119 yards. Hustisford rushed for 229, and passed for just over 100.

“Defensively, we played pretty solid compared to the last couple of weeks,” Sievert said. “We had guys flying around making plays all night long. We didn’t give up big plays like we had the first couple of weeks.”

Taylor Schaefer rushed 21 times for 79 yards for the Oaks, and Oakfield quarterback Patrick Schwoerer threw for 119 yards, but was intercepted three times.

Deerfield 42, Markesan 7

Deerfield played a near flawless game in winning at Markesan.

The Demons ran for 184 yards and threw for 166 and led 35-7 at halftime.

Kyle Jahnke ran for a 74-yard touchdown early in the third quarter, but the Hornets (1-2, 0-2) were stymied for most of the game.

“They’re just fundamentally solid at every position,” Markesan coach Kevin Wopat said. “They’ve got senior leaders and they were physical across the board.

“I thought our effort level was good, but I think we got beat by a better team,” he added.
