Oredockers Win 2nd in a Row; Defeat Hayward, 28-12
The Ashland Oredockers jumped to a 28-0 halftime lead, and then held on for a 28-12 victory over the Hayward Hurricanes on October 1st at Rod Lundberg Field in Hayward. 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.

Oredockers Get 1st Win; Beat Merrill 41-6
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. On the second play from scrimmage, Parker Goodreau broke free for a 66-yard run to the Merrill 5-yard line. Goodreau then scored the game's first touchdown on 3rd-and-goal from the one with 5:50 left. Cody Lustig added the extra point kick to make it 7-0. 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. After the kickoff, a Blue Jay's pass was intercepted by Kruzan and returned to the Merrill 7. Goodreau scored his second touchdown from there with just 8.8 seconds left in the half, and the Oredockers led, 21-0, at halftime.

Oredockers Drop To 0-2 With 38-12 Loss To Hurley
Max Blamey rushed for 131 yards on 23 carries and scored 3 touchdowns to lead the Hurley North Stars to a 38-12 win over the Ashland Oredockers on August 27th at Weikal Field. Hurley's wishbone offense piled up 388 yards rushing, and 6 players rushed for at least 42 yards, averaging 7.1 yards per rushing attempt. In addition to Blamey's 131 yards, Tad Wyka had 56 yards, Carter Hall had 50, Ty Gilbertson rushed for 47, Tony Cummings 45, and Derek Ransanici had 42.

Blamey scored the first two North Star touchdowns on runs of 4 and 1 yard. After the Oredockers' Parker Goodreau put Ashland on the board with a 48 yard TD run to make the score 16-6 midway through the second quarter, Ransanici scored from a yard out with just over a minute to go in the half. Hurley added their third two-point conversion to make the score 24-6 at halftime.

Oredockers Drop Opener to Tigers
The Northwestern Tigers rolled up 330 yards in the first half - 169 rushing and 161 passing - to defeat the Ashland Oredockers, 42-7, in the season-opener on Friday, August 20th, at Oredocker Stadium's Weikal Field. Northwestern finished the game with 457 total yards. The Tigers took the opening kickoff and marched 62 yards in 11 plays before being stopped on downs at the Ashland 18 yard line. But a short Oredocker punt after a three-and-out gave the Tigers a first down at the Ashland 34 and it took Northwestern just 4 plays to get into the end zone when Greg Ohman scored from 15 yards out. Dawson Kriske kicked the first of his 6 extra point to give the Tigers a 7-0 lead with 3:49 left in the first quarter. Northwestern scored 3 touchdowns in the 2nd quarter to take a 28-0 halftime lead. Ohman scored his 2nd touchdown on an 11-yard run with 11:11 left in the half, culminating 5-play, 40-yard drive. After the Oredockers' 3rd three-and-out of the game, the Tigers took over at their own 31 yard line. After an incomplete pass, quarterback Luke Sedin connected with Tanner Kaufman on a 50-yard pass play to the Ashland 19. Austin Schlies then ran it in from there with 8:36 on the clock to make it 21-0. On their next series, the Tigers took over on their own 26 and took just 4 plays to score, with the touchdown coming on an 11-yard pass from Sedin to Kaufman with 2:31 left in the half.

Ashland-Northwestern Rivalry Resumes
For 41 consecutive seasons, the Ashland Oredockers and the Northwestern Tigers opened the football season with a non-conference game. It was one of the longest-running season-opening rivalries in the State of Wisconsin. But that ended after the 2018 opener.
