Richfield’s Emmit Hafen accounted for four of Richfield’s six TDs on the night, three through the air and another on the ground.

Neither team scored in the fourth quarter.
Winter’s 40 yarder at the 7:15 mark of the first quarter was set up by a pass and catch for 52 yards from Kyson Stilson to Jaxton Madsen that got Emery inside the Wildcat 15-yard line.
