BY foxsports • November 21, 2014

MADISON, Wis. -- Three-hundred and eighty. That's how many more rushing yards Somerset had than Little Chute in the WIAA Division 4 state championship game.

The Spartans gained 379 yards on the ground and held the Mustangs to minus-1 yard rushing, using a pair of third-quarter touchdowns to beat Little Chute 28-16 on Thursday at Camp Randall Stadium.

A three-headed rushing attack of seniors -- Maxwell Praschak, Reed Baillargeon and Mitchell Foster -- simply could not be stopped. Somerset led 14-10 at the half and exerted its will in the third quarter.
