In the first quarter, Larson broke off a 74-yard rushing touchdown to put Baraboo up 7-0. Larson scored another huge run in the second quarter from 70 yards to increase Baraboo’s lead to 14-0.

Monona Grove chipped away at that lead when senior quarterback Casey Marron threw a 40-yard touchdown pass to senior wide receiver Ty Hoier. Junior kicker Cuinn Larsh added the extra point.

The Silver Eagles tied the game with a minute left in the quarter after senior running back Fabian Jackson punched it in from three yards out and Larsh added the extra point.

Baraboo continued the momentum in the second half with back-to-back scores. Larson scored on a 53-yard rush and, after the ensuing kickoff, Marron was picked off and had the interception returned to the endzone.
