Shane Schwaller carried 27 times for 127 yards and scored four touchdowns to help lead Little Chute to a 35-8 triumph over Bloomer in a WIAA Division 4, Level 2 playoff game Saturday afternoon.

The Mustangs dominated from the start as they outgained the Blackhawks 357-222.

Little Chute quarterback Sam Merryfield completed 12-of-17 passes for 149 yards and a touchdown as he connected with Scott Hietpas on a 19-yard scoring strike to give the Mustangs a 7-0 advantage with 2:09 left in the first quarter.

Schwaller added touchdown runs of 20 and 5 yards to make it 21-0 at the half. He added a 2-yard TD run midway through the third period before finishing off the Mustangs’ scoring with a 5-yard run to start the fourth.

Bloomer scored its only points with 5:54 remaining in the game on a 38-yard touchdown run by Andrew Zillmer and a conversion pass to Jacob Kostner.

Little Chute moves on to Level 3 for just the third time and first since 2012. The Mustangs will face Spencer/Columbus Catholic either Friday or Saturday in Little Chute.
