Trandahl broke free from 68-yards out on the first play of the Tigers’ second possession of the game and scored on a 7-yard keeper out of the Wildcat formation early in the second quarter to give New Richmond a 14-7 lead.

Trandahl’s third touchdown came on a 64-yard run with just over three minutes remaining in the first half to put New Richmond up 21-14, before Kennan Stowers blocked a Spartan punt and Drew Effertz scooped it up and returned it seven yards for a score to give the Tigers a 28-14 lead at the break.

Superior pulled to within seven on its first possession of the second half but Trandahl scored his fourth touchdown of the game on a 35-yard run to make it a 35-21 game after three. Stowers then scored on a 15-yard sweep with 8:25 remaining to widen the gap to 42-21.

Superior got a 62-yard touchdown pass on first down on its ensuing possession and drove to the Tiger 18 yard line with 1:38 remaining but Zane Habisch picked off a pass in the end zone to seal the win.
