SCHOFIELD – The Wisconsin Rapids football team wrapped up a postseason berth with a 37-26 win over D.C. Everest on Friday night at Stiehm Stadium.

Leo Brostowitz ran 26 times for 225 yards and two touchdowns, including an 80-yard scamper in the second quarter for the Raiders, who improve to 3-3 overall and 3-1 in the Valley Football Association. With a forfeit win added to its ledger against Wausau East, Wisconsin Rapids are guaranteed a winning record in the conference and assured of a WIAA playoff bid.

Brostowitz had a 9-yard touchdown, and quarterback Caden Sengbusch ran in from the 1 and connected with Austin Junemann for a 36-yard touchdown to give the Raiders a 20-7 lead after the first quarter.

Brostowitz had the long run in the second quarter to offset two D.C. Everest field goals and the Raiders led 27-13 at halftime.

Sengbusch added a 35-yard touchdown run in the third quarter and Adam Kaup kicked a 31-yard field goal in the fourth to provide the final margin for Wisconsin Rapids.

Brennan Huber had a fumble recovery and an interception for the Raiders’ defense.
