Red Devils rally, but fall to Brookfield Central


KENOSHA — Understandably salty after suffering its second defeat in as many weeks against a quality opponent, the Bradford football team should be able to take solace in one thing: The film from Friday night’s 35-28 loss to Brookfield Central will show plenty of positives.

Case’s big plays sink Bradford

RACINE — Watching the Bradford football team Friday was like watching a man repeatedly attempt to construct a house of cards during a toddler’s birthday party.

No matter how much diligence, hard work and patience the Red Devils employed on offense to score their points, Racine Case instantly tornadoed Bradford’s efforts to the ground time after time in dealing the Red Devils a painful 40-35 loss in a Southeast Conference game at Hammes Field.
