The opening week of high school football featured several great matchups throughout central Wisconsin.

Defending division one runner-up Wisconsin Rapids entered Friday with five straight wins over Wausau East, but the Lumberjacks returned several key pieces from last year's playoff team.

Wausau East took a 6-0 lead into the break and came out firing in the third quarter. After a pair of big passes from Cole Nelson, the Lumberjacks punched in a touchdown to make it 12-0.

A Lumberjacks' interception return for a touchdown all but sealed the win as Wausau East beat the Raiders for the first time since 2007.

In Marathon, the Raiders and Pittsville were in a defensive battle all night. Marathon scored a touchdown in the second quarter, which proved to be enough as the Raiders won 7-0.

In other area matchups, Marshfield beat DC Everest 34-30, while Edgar, Stratford, Greenwood and Amherst all cruised to wins in their respective season openers.
