Final Great Northern Conference Statistics
Although the Ashland Oredockers finished in the bottom half of the conference standings, several Oredockers were among the statistical leaders in the Great Northern Conference in 2021.

Two of Ashland's losses were forfeits to Antigo and conference-champion Mosinee due to COVID-19 protocols.

Neither team scored in the first quarter, but the Oredockers stopped the Robins on a 4th-down-and-1 at their own 39. A 15-yard run by Lustig and runs of 4 and 15 by Parker Goodreau gave Ashland a first down at the 5. On the first play of the second period, on 3rd and goal, quarterback Kade Jolma rolled to his left to avoid a sack and threw a 3-yard pass through a tight window to Marques Kruzan in the end zone.

Kruzan caught the pass in stride at midfield and took it the distance for an 85-yard touchdown. This time, Lustigís extra point was wide and Ashland led, 13-0 with 9:05 left. The Oredockers then recovered a Red Robinsí fumbled in Antigo territory and drove to the 9. Jolma scrambled in for the touchdown from there with 5:39 left and the Oredockers led 19-0 at the half.

Ethan Peterson returned the opening kickoff to the Ashland 42. The Oredockers marched 58 yards in 9 plays, with the touchdown coming on a 2-yard-run by Parker Goodreau with 7:12 to go in the quarter. Cody Lustig, as he would after all 4 touchdowns, added the extra point to make it 7-0. Hayward then drove to midfield, and an Oredocker penalty gave the Hurricanes a first down at the Ashland 35. But a sack on 3rd down pushed the Hurricanes back to the 44 and Joey Gouge's punt was downed at the Ashland one-yard line. After picking up 3 yards on first down, Goodreau broke free on the left side and outraced the Hayward defenders for a 96 yard touchdown run to make it 14-0 with 2:03 left in the quarter.

Playing for the first time in 3 weeks, the Ashland Oredockers exploded for 4 touchdowns in a 12-minute period from the middle of the 2nd quarter to the middle of the 3rd to defeat the Merrill Blue Jays at Oredocker Stadium, 41-6. Ashland had had games against Antigo and Mosinee cancelled due to COVID-19 protocols. After a scoreless first quarter, the Oredockers took possession at their own 26 with 8:01 left in the half.

Following the kickoff, Merrill picked up one first down before facing a 4th-and-8 at midfield. A pass completion came up two yards short of the first down and the Oredockers took over at their 44. The Oredockers had a first down at the Merrill 42, but a holding penalty put them back on the 50. On 3rd-down-and-18, quarterback Kade Jolma hit Marcus Kruzan in stride for a touchdown strike with 29.8 seconds left in the half. Lustig's kick made it 14-0. But the Oredockers weren't through yet.
