CHIPPEWA FALLS — There’s no weapon better to keep in the back pocket than footspeed. And Chi-Hi’s Ella Behling has plenty of it in her arsenal. The Cardinals sophomore hasn’t been afraid to pull the trigger when the time comes, leading to some fast times and big wins early on this fall. Behling, an 800 runner at heart who qualified for the event at state in her freshman year last June, used her mid-distance wheels to pull away at the finish line of the Hudson

HUDSON — With its back to the ropes, a young Menomonie team turned to two of its elder statesmen to get the job done when it mattered most. On fourth-and-goal with the game on the line against Hudson, Menomonie senior quarterback Jake Ebert fired a pass to fellow senior Sam Zbornik from the eight-yard line. The 6-foot-5 receiver leaped, and managed to snag the ball despite being snared in the arms of two Raider defenders to secure the game-winning touchdown with 2:48 left in the game.

COLFAX — For the past two years, defense wasn’t exactly a strength for the Colfax football team. The scoreboard often backed that up. The Vikings totaled just two wins over the last two seasons, and surrendered 30 or more points in 15 games during that span — the first two seasons under the guidance of coach Matt DeMoe. Year three? The numbers are better — significantly. The Vikings are 3-1 this fall, surpassing their number of wins from the last two seasons by
Believe it or not the score was 67-65. That’s 132 points. In one game on one day, although it seemed like it lasted a week. Eighteen touchdowns in three hours. Or six per hour.

Probably not, but right up in there. In comparison, it outdoes Chippewa Falls’ 44-41 win and
