SCHOFIELD – D.C. Everest took advantage of four Marshfield turnovers and scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to pull out a 17-7 win over the Tigers in a Valley Football Association matchup Friday night at Stiehm Stadium.
Marshfield took a 7-3 lead on a 19-yard touchdown pass from Trevor Foemmel to Carson Kvernen with 1:50 to go before halftime, but couldn’t muster anything positive in the second half and the Evergreens eventually found a way to pull off the win.
Marshfield dodged one bullet in the third quarter after a touchdown was called back on a holding penalty and D.C. Everest eventually missed a field goal, but couldn’t stop the Evergreens in the fourth quarter.
Preston Miller hauled in a 32-yard touchdown pass from Jack Bobinski to give D.C. Everest a 10-7 lead with 6:42 remaining.
Following an interception, Simon Witt ran in from the 6 with 1:36 to go for the Evergreens’ final score.
