Cambria-Friesland’s Gabe Bubolz ran for 206 yards in the Hilltoppers’ 38-14 victory over Oakfield on Friday in Oakfield.

He had touchdowns of 6, 5 and 2 yards.
“He’s a big, physical kid,” said Oakfield coach Tim Sievert. “He reads his blocks well … He’s a load. And we learned he’s a lot faster than what it looked like on film.”
Oakfield had a solid rushing perfomance of its own from Taylor Schaefer, who ran 17 times for 139 yards and both Oaks’ touchdowns. He ran in from 5 yards out for the game’s first score, then dashed 44 yards late in the third period.
“We got good production in the running game; our offensive line did a nice job to start,” Sievert said. “We eliminated a lot of the mental mistakes that happened last week. We’re building on it and getting ready come around corner.”
Matt Zuelke made three catches for 45 yards for the Oaks.

Montello tri-op 37, Markesan 8

Noah Polcyn completed six passes to Austin Baker — five of them were for touchdowns in the Phoenix’s Trailways Large win at Markesan.

“I would just say they wanted it a little bit more than we did,” Markesan coach Kevin Wopat said. “Any time Baker had the chance to make a play he made it.”

Kyle Jahnke ran for 60 yards on 16 attempts for the Hornets (1-1, 0-1) and he scored his team’s lone touchdown on a 6-yard score late in the second quarter.

Markesan hosts Deerfield next Friday.
