Boone Mathison busted an 80-yard run for a touchdown, but that was one of the few highlights in Tomah’s 48-6 loss to D.C. Everest in a high school football contest played at Schofield Friday.
It was Tomah’s fifth straight loss after a 2-0 start.
The contest didn’t start well for the Timberwolves. On the first play from scrimmage, Reece Ostrowski intercepted a Tomah pass and returned it 24 yards for a touchdown.
The Evergreens scored another touchdown before Mathison’s touchdown cut the gap to 14-6. Ostrowski returned another interception for a touchdown late in the second quarter as D.C. Everest took a 27-6 halftime lead.
A bright spot for the Timberwolves was the return of wide receiver/defensive back Kade Gnewikow from the injured list. He caught three passes for 54 yards.
Defensively, Tomah was led by Dawson Cruz with an interception and Jairon Pierce with a quarterback sack.
Tomah returns home Friday, Oct. 11 for its homecoming contest against winless West Salem. Kickoff is 7 p.m. at E.J. McKean Field.
