Stoughton won their second-ever playoff game on their home field, taking down Sauk Prairie 26-13 in Level 1 of the Division 3 WIAA State Football Tournament at Collins Field on Friday night.
Adam Hobson threw for three touchdowns and Stoughton's defense dominated to help the Vikings pick up the school's second-ever playoff victory.
Sauk Prairie got on the board first, but Stoughton reeled off 26 unanswered points, including a 49-yard passing touchdown near the end of the third quarter, to put the game out of reach.
It was Sauk Prairie's first playoff game in 12 years. The Eagles finished the 2019 season at 6-4, a solid turnaround under first-year head coach Clay Iverson. Stoughton improved to 8-2 and will face fellow Badger South member Monroe at Collins Field in Level 2.
The game against the Cheesemakers will be the third playoff game ever hosted by Stoughton in football. The Vikings have won their other two home playoff games in school history, including a win over rival Oregon in 2017.
