threw touchdown passes of 5 yards to Mark Dilling and 68 yards to Bryan Luteyn
as Fondy built a 35-0 lead at the break.  Quinn Woelfel and Joe Kuber
added scoring runs of 5 and 4 yards respectively in the 4th quarter to finish off the Fondy
scoring. Nejedlo finished with 172 yards passing and 44 yards rushing. 
Woelfel had 83 yards on the ground and Brian Luteyn ended up catching 5 passes
for 115 yards and a TD.  With the win,Fond du Lac ends their regular season
at 8-1 overall and 6-1 in Valley Football Association South Division
