With Foley backed up on his own goal line at the Pioneer 1 yard line, he had a 50-yard punt that sent the returner sprinting backwards to field the kick and ended up with a return for a loss of 1 yard.

For his performance Foley was named the WIAC Special Teams Athlete of the Week.

He had 30 rushing attempts for 141 yards rushing, five catches for 25 yards, two kickoff returns for 63 yards with a long return of 38 yards. Babich brought the spark the Pioneers were looking for as he became the leader on the field for the offense and special teams. With the Pioneers down, Bo put the offense on his back and capped off a 64-yard drive with his first career rushing touchdown to bring the score to 17-14.
