In a tight game between rivals, Ozaukee High School’s football team held the upper hand into the third quarter but Random Lake came back at home to pull out a 21-18 victory last Friday.

After falling behind, 6-0, in the first quarter, the Warriors went on an 18-0 run. Jack Genzmer had a 50-yard touchdown run and quarterback Ty Szczerbinski hit Brent Hoffmann with a 23-yard touchdown pass.

Up, 12-6, at halftime, the Warriors scored first in the third quarter on a 15-yard run by Hoffmann.

But the 18-6 lead wouldn’t hold.

The Rams scored one touchdown in the third quarter and another in the fourth, ending the game on a 15-0 run to win.

Genzmer and Hoffmann provided a near 50-50 run balance. Genzmer had 162 yards and a score on 28 carries, and Hoffmann had 152 yards and a score on 28 attempts.

Hoffmann had two catches for 35 yards and a touchdown, and Genzmer caught two balls for 23 yards.

Szczerbinski went 4-for-12 passing for 58 yards with a touchdown and one interception.

For the Rams, quarterback Case Noll ran 20 times for 89 yards and two scores, including the deciding 17-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.
