Oct. 9—WATERTOWN — Watertown Luther Prep kept its hopes for an automatic WIAA football playoff berth alive—and took away any chance for Walworth Big Foot to earn an automatic berth—with a 27-14 victory in Capitol Conference play Friday night.

Isaac Schumann ran for third-quarter touchdowns of 1 and 19 yards to put away the victory for Luther Prep (5-3 overall, 3-3 Capitol).

Big Foot (3-6, 2-4) scored on a 34-yard pass in the first quarter, and added a 1-yard touchdown run in the fourth.

Big Foot will play host to Beloit Turner in the regular-season finale on Friday, needing a victory and some luck to earn a playoff berth with what would be a 3-4 conference record. Only teams with .500 or better conference records are awarded automatic playoff berths.
