SPENCER - The Spencer/Columbus Catholic football team punched its ticket to the WIAA playoffs by downing Central Wisconsin Conference Large Division foe Shiocton 17-6 on Friday night at Ted Fritsch Field.


The Rockets (6-4, 4-3 CWC Large) ran out to a 17-0 halftime lead and never looked back.


The one constant in the Rockets’ early scoring barrage was Brock Bennington.


S/C ran off a 10-play drive to open the game but handed it over to the Chiefs on downs. Three plays later, Bennington stepped in front of a pass in the left flat, picked it off and ran 35 yards for the first score at the 4:38 mark of the first quarter.
