After a back-and-forth first quarter, the GFW Thunderbird football team had no problem dispatching New Richland-Hartland-Ellendale-Geneva 58-19. The T-Birds would get on the scoreboard first when Garret Schmidt bolted for a 57-yard touchdown run. Dominic Rose would connect with Rex Monson for the two-point conversion and the T-Birds led 8-0.
