The UW-Parkside women’s soccer team (13-0-2, 11-0-2), ranked sixth in the country, won 3-0 over Indianapolis at Wood Road Field on Friday night for their sixth-straight win.

The UW-Parkside Wayne E. Dannehl National Cross Country Course will host two of the runs.
BURLINGTON — One punch to the gut from Burlington wasn’t enough apparently.
Two weeks after suffering a quadruple-overtime defeat to the Demons, the Wilmot football team lost out on a chance at redemption when Adam Pacey missed a 37-yard field goal on the final play of the game in a 21-20 heartbreaker in the first round of the WIAA Division-2 playoffs on Friday night at Don Dalton Stadium.
FRANKLIN — It could’ve turned out differently, but this is what happens when you don’t finish.
The underdog Bradford football team put up a gutsy effort in a WIAA Division-1 first-round playoff game at Franklin on Friday night, outgaining the Sabers 331-280 and pushing eight of its nine drives into enemy territory.
KENOSHA — While it wasn’t exactly “three yards and a cloud of dust” for Indian Trail on Friday in its first-round WIAA playoff game against visiting Lake Geneva Badger, the Hawks’ usual big-play offense tried something a little different.
Indian Trail effectively used “small-ball” to pull out a 41-26 victory over the Badgers at Jaskwhich Stadium to advance to next week’s second round of the Division-1 playoffs.
KENOSHA — The Carthage football team will host one of the stingiest teams in the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin when it entertains Augustana 1 p.m. Saturday at Art Keller Field.
