This could be a great one.

Menasha was counted out back in 2014 but squeezed by Homestead in L4 and then throttled Waukesha West in the title game.

Getting a similar vibe from this team. Meanwhile DeForest is senior-dominated and came through the rugged Badger and a tough region.

DeForest 19, Menasha 16.

It'll come down if Deforest can slow down the Menasha QB. If not, Menasha has a chance. If they can, it'll be a Deforest win. Menasha has some good size on the OL, athletic QB, and a decent RB. 

Menomonie was an overrated team, bigly, this year and they didn't face any powerhouse teams in the playoff until last night. Joe LaBuda showed his aging ability to coach last when he got severely outcoached. They had no clue how to defend the Menasha QB and the reason Menomonie lost the momentum in the game was due to LaBuda's terrible playcalling after they got up by 21 points. 

BTW...Marshfield has a beautiful stadium. The WIAA should give some serious thought about hosting more playoff games there and the 8 Man title game yearly.

For the uninformed,  DeForest defeated then D-2 #1-ranked Waunakee, 35-13, in the final game of the regular season.  Meanwhile, Menasha defeated then D-3 #1-ranked West DePere, 24-14, in a Level 3, quarter-final playoff game.

I think DeForest is the superior team from a talent perspective, but Menasha has beaten two really talented teams the last few weeks including last week's thriller. I'm still taking DeForest, but this will be a game down to the wire.

DeForest 21 - Menasha 17

5:34 left, 1st quarter

Ominous start for DeForest's heralded D as the Blue Jays march 67 yards in 12 plays for the score.

Halftime

Besides the opening drive, both teams have been finding the sledding tough.

DeForest: 115

DeForest drives down the field to start the second half but Trey Schroeder is stopped short on 4th down and Menasha takes over at their own 17 with 7:05 left in the quarter.

The teams trade fumbles at the edge of the DeFo red zone.

Big missed opportunity for the Norskies there.

Another fumble lost by DeForest. But they'll get one more shot from their 37 with 1:15 left.

DeForest scores on a 14-yard pass to Gabe Finley. Then goes for two and converts on the jump pass!

Menasha takes a sack, completes a short pass and then despite getting the snap off before the clock expired, Cole Popp gives up on the play and just flippantly tosses the ball in the direction of a receiver and it gets picked. That was bizarre.
