MENASHA, Wis. (NBC 26) — The high school football spring season started with a bang Thursday night.

Notre Dame stormed back from a 10-0 deficit in the fourth quarter to come back and beat Menasha 13-10 in the first game of an unprecedented "alternate spring" season for schools that did not play football last fall due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Will Zellner scored two fourth quarter touchdowns, including the game-winner with less than two minutes left, to propel the Tritons to the win.

The game was scoreless at halftime but both teams shook off some early rust to provide a fantastic finish.

Several other northeast Wisconsin teams will hit the field tomorrow night for their first games of the season.
