Prairie Farm clinched its second straight Lakeland 8-Man Football Conference title Saturday with a 52-0 homecoming shutout of Bruce.
The Panthers improved to 6-0 in the eight-team, eight-man conference and will receive a forfeit win over Winter in their final scheduled conference game Friday.
Prairie Farm has picked up a game for Friday, playing an exhibition at Cadott in what will be an 11-player format.
The Panthers then will defend their unofficial eight-man football state championship in the state eight-man jamboree Saturday, Nov. 2 at Schofield. The No. 1-seeded "North" team Prairie Farm will face the No. 1 seed from the south, either Green Bay NEW Lutheran or Gilbraltar, said Panthers' co-head coach Steve Schaaf.
Prairie Farm won the state title game between No. 1 seeds a year ago, 70-14 over Abundant Life Christian Academy of Madison. The Panthers are 16-0 since the Lakeland 8-Man Conference began last year.
Prairie Farm scored four times on plays of 35 yards or longer in Saturday's rout of Bruce. Senior Nathan Moen got the offense rolling with a 60-yard touchdown run midway through the first quarter and added a 53-yard TD pass reception from senior quarterback Josh Siebert early in the second period.
Also in the first half, Siebert scored on a 23-yard run, senior Austin Christopherson on a 9-yard run and senior Denver Moen on a 40-yard pass from Siebert.
Siebert added a pair of TD runs of 23 and 14 yards in the third quarter to complete the scoring.
Two-point conversions were scored by Christopherson twice, Siebert, senior tight end Tom Sand and senior running back McKale Slagel.
Prairie Farm outgained the Red Raiders 330-142 yards.
After Bruce moved the ball on its first drive, the Panthers clamped down for the rest of the first half. Linemen Anthony Wilcox, a senior, and Elijah Whitman, a sophomore, blew up a halfback option pass by rushing Carter Chafer, and a couple of plays later Denver Moen intercepted a Dallas Zelek pass.
A Bruce reverse by Jared Weisser was stopped by Nathan Moen and Wilcox, followed by a sack of Zelek by Wilcox and junior Adam Mayer.
Bruce slips to 4-2 in the conference, setting up its Lakeland finale for third place with Siren, also 4-2, on Friday at Bruce.
Luck is in second place at 5-1 but lost earlier this month to Prairie Farm, 62-22.
The top four teams in the Lakeland 8-Man will face the top four teams from southern Wisconsin in the state jamboree on Nov. 2.
