Special Teams Key in Spencer/Columbus Win over Shiocton

Spencer (OnFocus) – The Spencer/Columbus Rockets concluded the regular season with a hard-fought 17-6 win over Shiocton.

As time ran out to end the first half, Bennington connected on a 41 yard field goal.

Bennington led all rushers with 117 yards on 21 carries, and added two receptions for 17 yards.
