PLATTEVILLE — Prairie du Chien’s Traeton Saint rushed for 168 yards and four first half touchdowns as the visiting Blackhawks dominated to host Hillmen to spoil Senior Night, 42–7.

The Blackhawks (8–1, 6–1 SWC) forced a Platteville punt three plays into the game. Saint took a handoff and raced 77 yards through the heart of the Hillmen defense on Prairie’s first offensive play for a 6–0 lead less than two minutes into the game.

Platteville (6–3, 5–2, third in SWC) gained just two yards on a John Goomey run and two incompletions on its next drive and was again forced to punt. The Blackhawks took over near midfield and gained 33 yards on a Dylan Coleman to Ben Riter pass. Two plays later Saint scored from 10 yards out and the extra point made it 13–0.
