Kimberly (14-0) erupted for 21 points in the third quarter and 34 unanswered points in the second half to cruise to a record-setting 51-10 victory over Oshkosh North (13-1) in the Division 2 championship final. The 51 points are the most scored in a Division 2 State final.

The Spartans scored first with a 6-yard run by quarterback Nate Neveau to cap an eight-play, 80-yard drive. However, the lead was brief as the Papermakers scored on the ensuing drive on a one-yard run by quarterback Scott Schreiber. Schreiber connected with Weston Guilfoyle on a 33-yard touchdown pass to give Kimberly a 14-7 lead at 4:25 before intermission. Oshkosh North’s Turner Geisthardt added a 29-yard field goal as time expired in the first half to narrow the Papermakers’ lead to 17-13.

The third quarter was all Kimberly. Schreiber sprinted 42 yards down the left sideline and willed himself into the end zone after initial contact at the 7-yardline. Blair Mulholland upped the Papermakers’ lead to 28-10 on a one-yard plunge at the 4:56 mark of the quarter, and Schreiber ran the ball in from 11 yards out to make the spread 35-10 at the end of the period.

Schreiber tied a Division 1 record by rushing for his fourth rushing touchdown on a 24-yard scamper with 9:21 remaining in the game. The Papermakers added a safety on Oshkosh North’s next possession when Connor McCormick tackled Neveau in the end zone to make the score 44-10. The final score of the game came on a 13-yard burst by J.P. Peerenboom .

Schreiber completed 9-of-12 passes for 154 yards and a touchdown and rushed for 100 yards to pace the Papermakers’ offense, and Mitchel Fisher led the defense with 11 tackles, a forced fumble and two passes broken up. The Spartans’ attack was led by Neveau with 192 passing yards and 55 yards rushing.

Kimberly won its third State championship and its first since the second of back-to-back titles in 2007-08. Oshkosh North finishes runner-up in its second State final appearance.
