Monday Morning Quarterback


Among his many famous quotes, legendary Green Bay Packers coach Vince Lombardi once said, “You can’t always be first, but you have to believe that you should have been — that you were never beaten — that time just ran out on you.”

Wilmot coach Erick Kaiser sounded a bit like Lombardi after his team’s 28-21 loss to Watertown in the first round of the WIAA Division-2 playoffs Friday night.

Big nights for two Lancers in playoff victory


It was hard to tell which senior was more excited after St. Joseph’s game: Jerry Madden or Freddy Steinmetz.

They each helped the Lancers defeat Random Lake, 28-14, Friday night in the first-round of the WIAA Division-5 football playoffs.

Badgers stifle Hawkeyes


IOWA CITY, Iowa — Don’t count Wisconsin out of the Big Ten West race just yet.

Corey Clement ran for 134 yards and a touchdown and the 10th-ranked Badgers used a stout defense to beat Iowa, 17-9, on Saturday, snapping a two-game skid.

Illinois Wesleyan rallies past Carthage

It came down to one last play for Carthage. Only that wasn’t the only chance the football team had Saturday at Art Keller Field.

Although the Red Men threw an incomplete pass from the Illinois Wesleyan 13-yard line as time expired, there were plenty of other reasons they suffered a 19-14 loss to the Titans.

Horlick overwhelms Indian Trail

RACINE — When the Indian Trail football team played Racine Horlick two weeks ago, it saw plenty of Rebels star running back Joe Garcia.

But on Friday night, Garcia was back for an encore — and his second act was just as good as his first.

St. Joseph advances in football playoffs


RANDOM LAKE — The St. Joseph football team never wavered.

Time and time again, the fifth-seeded Lancers overcame mistakes or capitalized on those made by fourth-seeded Random Lake en route to a 28-14 victory Friday in the first round of the WIAA Division-5 playoffs. The last time St. Joseph reached the second round was 2012.

Watertown topples Wilmot


WILMOT — Another year, another early playoff exit for the Wilmot football team.

Watertown junior quarterback Dylan Fagerland showed why he is one of the state’s most prolific passers as he shredded the Panthers’ defense in the first half. Second-seeded Wilmot outscored the seventh-seeded Goslings 14-0 in the second half, but that wasn’t enough to prevent a 28-21 Watertown victory Friday night in a WIAA Division-2 first-round playoff game at Frank Bucci Field.

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.

Badgers try to keep division hopes alive at Iowa


IOWA CITY, Iowa — In just three weeks, Wisconsin might go from being the toast of the Big Ten West to, well, toast in the Big Ten West.

The 10th-ranked Badgers (4-2, 1-2 Big Ten) earned the nation’s respect after close losses to Michigan and Ohio State, dropping just two spots in this week’s poll. And yet a loss on Saturday at unranked Iowa (5-2, 3-1) would put the Badgers three back of the Hawkeyes in the win column with just five games left.

Red Men are doing well, looking to do even better


Here’s how well the Carthage football team is playing:

The Red Men are 5-1 for the first time since 2006 and their 3-1 record in the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin is their best start since 2004.

Wilmot looking to change its playoff luck


The WIAA Division-2 playoffs have not been kind to the Wilmot football team over the last decade-plus.

Since 2002, the Panthers are 2-10 in 10 playoff appearances, with first-round victories in 2011 and last year (39-6 over Greendale) their only successes.

No. 2 Ohio St. claws past No. 8 Wisconsin in OT


MADISON — J.T. Barrett escaped Wisconsin’s pressure and shook off a mistake.

Ohio State’s do-it-all quarterback proved his mettle after halftime in the toughest of road environments, accounting for three touchdowns and setting a school record in the process.

Carthage 5-1 after defeating Elmhurst


Falling behind by 14 points early was only a minor hurdle for the Carthage football team on Saturday afternoon.

The Red Men overcame a 14-0 first-quarter deficit en route to a 37-28 College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin victory at Elmhurst, Carthage’s third consecutive win overall.

Red Devils in the playoffs



MOUNT PLEASANT — The Bradford football team is playoff bound.

Tremper falls to SEC champ Franklin

Southeast Conference champion Franklin raced to a 35-0 halftime lead in cruising to a 41-10 victory over Tremper at Ameche Field on Friday night.

The Trojans (2-7, 2-5) got a 33-yard field goal from Jackson Jones in the third quarter and a 44-yard TD pass from Tommy Matoska to Riley Keckeisen in the fourth quarter for their scoring.

Oak Creek nips Indian Trail

Oak Creek went for two points and the win and converted with 42 seconds left Friday night to nip host Indian Trail, 29-28, in a Southeast Conference football game.

The Hawks (5-4, 4-3) entered the fourth quarter leading 28-14, but Oak Creek (6-3, 4-3) scored with 11:10 left and then got the winner to become playoff eligible.
