Top-seeded Lake Country Lutheran rolls past New Holstein 44-0

Mason Buteyn (28) heads around the end on one of his runs Friday night.

Top-seeded Lake Country Lutheran had too much speed and strength for the New Holstein High School football team Friday night (Oct. 22), running away with a 44-0 victory in a WIAA playoff opener.

The host team from Hartland scored on its first four offensive possessions and tossed in a 71-yard interception return for a touchdown early in the second quarter. The Lightning led 24-0 after one quarter and took a 38-0 lead into halftime.

New Holstein got a first down on the game’s first possession, but Lake Country Lutheran’s dominance soon became evident.

Offensively, the only thing which worked all night for the Huskies was the running of Mason Buteyn who had 67 yards on seven carries. The rest of the Husky rushing attack combined to carry the ball 19 times for negative 10 yards.

New Holstein finished the season with a 4-6 overall record.
