WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Caleb Schroer is the state’s top scorer and he added to his points total.

The Wisconsin Rapids senior scored a hat trick — that included a short-handed goal — and was credited with an assist to lead the Raiders to a 6-3 nonconference win over Monona Grove Satuday at the South Wood County Recreation Center.

Schroer now has 48 points this season (23 goals, 25 assists) as Rapids, ranked fourth in the current poll, handed Monona Grove it’s second loss of the season.

Rapids also trailed for the first time this season, but not for long.

After the Silver Eagles’ Travis Johnston scored at 4 minutes, 15 seconds of the first period, Schroer scored two straight goals to end the period and give Rapids the lead for remainder of the game.

“We came out playing strong, but fell behind early and did a good job getting a couple goals back and finishing off a quality opponent,” Rapids coach Pat McDonald said. “Caleb’s goal with 11 seconds left in the first period was big.”

Two other Rapids players got in on the goal-scoring, Matt Edwards and Luke Gause.
