Web extra: Melvin Gordon’s day in pictures

12

Bradford graduate Melvin Gordon had a career day for the San Diego Chargers in their 43-35 win at Tennessee on Sunday.

The second-year running back out of Wisconsin ran for a career-best 196 yards and scored a touchdown and caught four passes for 65 yards as he continued to establish himself as one of the most dangerous players in the NFL.

The Associated Press captured a lot of Gordon’s big day in pictures.


Local SEC teams in good position

Franklin is the only Southeast Conference team remaining in the WIAA Division-1 football playoffs.

But when the 2016 All-SEC team was announced on Monday, Bradford, Indian Trail and Tremper scored some lofty honors right on par with the conference-champion Sabers.

Kenosha all over All-SEC picks

When the 2016 All-Southeast Conference football team was announced on Monday, Kenosha County was well-represented.

Bradford received 16 total first-team, second-team and honorable mention selections — just one behind SEC champion Franklin’s 17 for second-most in the conference — Indian Trail totaled 11 and Tremper racked up nine.

Go, go Gordon

SAN DIEGO — Even if the San Diego Chargers continue to struggle for an identity, Melvin Gordon isn’t.

For the second day in a row, coach Mike McCoy referred to the second-year running back as a “bell cow.”

Bradford puts up a fight, but falls to Oak Creek

OAK CREEK — The Bradford football team has had to fight its way out of the corner so many times this year, there was no reason to think the Red Devils would go quietly trailing 14-0 at halftime with their backup quarterback in a road playoff game on Friday night.

And they sure didn’t. They just came up short.

Defensive stop keyed Devils

1

In a game that featured 94 points and 967 yards of total offense, it’s easy to ignore that an old-fashioned defensive stand was a key moment in Bradford’s 60-34 Southeast Conference win over Tremper at Mary D. Bradford Stadium on Friday night.

But it’s definitely worth noting.

MMQB: Lancers not worrying

St. Joseph’s chance to win its first conference championship since 2005, when it was a member of the now-defunct Lakeshore Conference, is all but over following the Lancers’ 24-13 loss to Racine St. Catherine’s on Friday night at Ameche Field on Friday night.

While St. Catherine’s (6-2, 5-1 MCC) clinched at least a share of the Metro Classic Conference title with the win, St. Joseph (5-3 overall) dropped into a three-way tie for second in the eight-team league at 4-2 with Greendale Martin Luther (6-2 overall) and Racine Lutheran (5-3 overall).

In 2007, 2009 and 2010, the Bradford and Tremper football teams met in the postseason for the only times in the rivalry’s history, with the Red Devils emerging as the victors each time.

Technically, Friday night isn’t a fourth playoff game in the series. But it may as well be.
