MEDFORD – The Mosinee football team clinched at least a share of the Great Northern Conference championship, its first since 2012, with a 41-14 rout of Medford on Friday night at Medford Area Senior High.
Trevor Garski threw for 329 yards and six touchdowns for the Indians, who are 8-1 overall and 6-0 in the Great Northern Conference.
Garski had touchdown passes of 44 and 1 yards to Keagan Jirschele in the first quarter before Medford’s Aiden Gardner had a 1-yard touchdown run and a two-point conversion to close Mosinee’s lead to 14-8.
But it wasn’t close for long as Garski threw three touchdown passes in the second quarter, two to Davin Stoffel and another to Barnes Bunkelman, to push the Indians’ lead to 35-8 at halftime.
Garski added an 11-yard touchdown pass to Grod in the fourth quarter for Mosinee’s final score.
Jirschele finished with 11 catches for 118 yards and Stoffel had five catches for 89 yards for Mosinee.
Mosinee will look to finish off an undefeated Great Northern Conference season next Friday, Oct. 15, at home against Antigo. The game will be live at zaleskisports.com.
