ONALASKA, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Both Onalaska and Logan fell victim last week to high-powered offensive attacks. It would be the defenses looking for redemption and coming up empty.
Logan already jumped out to a 15-8 lead in the second quarter, but Onalaska brought it back within a point when Clint Rihn took a bubble screen in from 23 yards out. The Hilltoppers' extra point try would be blocked, so they would still trail 15-14.
Onalaska then picked up a quick turnover and capitalized to take the lead. Cody Turriff threw to Dalton Treanor for a 24 yard touchdown. A two-point conversion made it a 22-15 Onalaska lead.
That would not be the last of the scoring before the half, however. Logan's David Hellerud scored not once, but twice. The second touchdown came at the end of a 66 yard scamper. Hellerud ran for 177 yards and three touchdowns on the night. Logan took a 27-22 lead into the half.
They added to the advantage in the third. Jonah Waite found Tanner Formanek for a quick strike, extending the lead to 34-22 over the 'Toppers.
It looked all but over for Onalaska until the fourth quarter. Turriff connected with Treanor again, this time for 27 yards and six points, making it only a four-point deficit. The Hilltoppers defense stopped Logan on an ensuing drive, and Onalaska took over with time winding down.
With only a minute to play, Turriff hit a wide-open Luke Tepp in the endzone for a five yard touchdown to put the Hilltoppers up for good. Turriff was 18-26 passing with 291 yards and 5 touchdowns on the night.
Onalaska came away with a 37-34 win, improving to 2-1 in MVC play. Logan's loss put them at an 0-2 disadvantage in the conference.
