2013 WIAA playoffs: Dominic Cizauskas, Jaden Gault, others advance

The state semifinals are now set for this Friday as Wisconsin verbals continue to fight for a spot in Camp Randall Stadium.

Last week, five of the six Wisconsin verbal commits who helped lead their teams into the WIAA state playoffs remained in contention to reach Camp Randall Stadium later this month. Now, only four remain, as Marquette University's (Milwaukee) Conor Sheehy and the Hilltoppers were eliminated.

WIAA Division 1

Dominic Cizauskas, Mukwonago (Mukwonago)

A huge game indeed for Cizauskas, who scored three touchdowns on the ground in four rushing attempts, going for 87 yards. Per a Mukwonago student, he also forced a fumble on defense that led to another score as well:

No. 5 Mukwonago plays No. 1 Franklin at Kettle Moraine High School Friday night.

George Panos and Billy Hirschfeld, Arrowhead (Hartland)

No. 1 seed Arrowhead defeated No. 2 seed Germantown Friday night, 36-3, in the Group B bracket. Panos and Hirschfeld continue to light Arrowhead's path to Camp Randall, as they held Germantown to only 277 total offensive yards in the blowout. Next up for the much-heralded high school is No 1 seed Hudson (Group A) in Stevens Point Friday evening for a chance to play against either Mukwonago or Franklin at Camp Randall next week.

Conor Sheehy, Marquette University (Milwaukee)

It was the end of the road for the No. 2 seed Hilltoppers, as they fell to the top-ranked Sabers of Franklin, 41-13, last Friday night in the Group D bracket. Marquette actually led 13-7 late in the second quarter, but Franklin scored 34 unanswered points to advance to the state semifinals. Sheehy and company end their season with a 9-3 record.

WIAA Division 3

Jaden Gault, Monona Grove (Monona)

The ESPN150 athlete and his Silver Eagles came back to defeat defending Division 3 champion Waukesha Catholic Memorial, 20-17.

The Silver Eagles move on to play La Crosse Logan Friday night with a chance to go to Camp Randall in the state finals.
