Sophomore quarterback Camron Mendoza’s four TD passes in the game tied the program’s single game record, matching Carter Riesen (2019), Matt McDonald (2 times in 1984).  His 281 yards passing was 2nd most in school history behind Carter Riesen’s 2019 game against Baraboo in 2019.

Beaver Dam’s 517 yards of total offense was 5th all-time in school history.
