Big Foot 35, St. Francis 0

The Big Foot Chiefs set up a rematch with conference rival Evansville following their 35-0 victory over St. Francis in the first-round WIAA Division 4 football playoffs Tuesday night.

Big Foot racked up 304 rushing yards on 35 carries to St. Francis' 87 yards on 24 attempts.

T.J. Schaid scored on runs of 68 and 47 yards.

With the win, Big Foot gets a rematch with Evansville, who they defeated 21-15 to capture the Rock Valley title. The Chiefs (10-0) will host Evansville (8-2) on Saturday.

Lake Geneva Badger 40, Fort Atkinson 14

Badger High School (7-3) poured it on against visiting Fort Atkinson, producing 452 yards of total offense in their 40-14 win in their WIAA Division 2 playoff opener.

Jared Stan rushed for 197 yards for the Badgers, scoring on runs of 72 and 66 yards, and Brad Schank ran for 98 yards and two scores. Stan also threw a 39-yard touchdown pass to Braden Tice.

Badger travels to Waunakee Saturday for a second round game.

Elkhorn 6, DeForest 14

Elkhorn fell behind DeForest 14-3 halftime, but even a late rally wasn't enough as the Elks fell 14-6 victory in their WIAA Division 2 playoff opener.

Clinging to its 14-6 lead late in the fourth quarter, DeForest didn't have an answer for an Elks drive that started at their 5 and continued to the Norskies' 30 with just more than a minute to play.

But a crucial Elkhorn mistake changed the Norskies' fortunes.

Mike Johnson's interception at the 17 with 54 seconds left abruptly ended the Elks' comeback quest.
