It was all Nekoosa in the second half, with Blaze Thurber claiming a goal on his own, before assisting Bret McKeel on a third point.
“Nekoosa controlled possession, had more shots, and outplayed their opponents,” Nekoosa Coach Chris Goodwin said. “Despite the stats, the game wasn’t won with skill, it was effort. The Papermakers wanted it more, and that is why Mauston went home losing to Nekoosa 3-1.”
