A confusing finish for Bradford, Indian Trail


From the opening ceremonies to the final play, Thursday’s inaugural game at Mary D. Bradford Stadium was packed with nonstop action.

It was interrupted, however, by a lot of confusion during a critical sequence on Bradford’s last-gasp drive, which ended in a missed field goal as Indian Trail held on for a 41-38 victory.

Carthage rallies to beat Augustana


With the offense sputtering and time running out, the Carthage football team gave backup Kyle Friberg his first chance as quarterback.

Badgers leave Spartans smartin’


EAST LANSING, Mich. — By the time Alex Hornibrook’s first start was over, there wasn’t much question about whether he could handle one of the toughest road tests in the Big Ten.

Hornibrook threw for 195 yards and a touchdown, and 11th-ranked Wisconsin turned its early-season showdown with No. 8 Michigan State into a rout, beating the Spartans 30-6 on Saturday.

Badgers, Spartans in early Big Ten showdown


EAST LANSING, Mich. — The Michigan State-Wisconsin rivalry was just getting good when the matchup disappeared from the Big Ten schedule for a bit.

In 2011, the Spartans beat the Badgers on a Hail Mary, but Wisconsin won a thrilling rematch in the Big Ten championship game. Michigan State beat the Badgers in overtime in 2012, but the teams haven’t faced each other since.

Oak Creek puts a thumping on Tremper

OAK CREEK — Complete and utter domination.

That’s the only way to sum up Oak Creek’s 58-0 victory over Tremper in a Southeast Conference football game Friday night.

An agonizing first loss for Wilmot


LAKE GENEVA — There’s only one way to describe Wilmot’s 27-21 double-overtime loss at Lake Geneva Badger on Friday night.

“Heartbreaking,” Panthers quarterback A.J. Frisby said. “There’s no other word to describe it besides heartbreaking.”

Pacers turn it around in second half to beat Racine Lutheran

RACINE — If there was a perfect time for Shoreland Lutheran to make a defensive statement for the 2016 season, it was in the second half of Friday’s Metro Classic Conference clash against Racine Lutheran at Horlick Field.

The Pacers trailed 21-14 at halftime, and had little luck up to that point keeping the high-powered Crusaders 21-14 out of the end zone.

Defense leads Lancers past BCC

It took almost the entire first half Friday night for the St. Joseph offense to find an opening in its Metro Classic Conference contest against Burlington Catholic Central at Ameche Field.

That slow start didn’t seem to matter much because the Lancers’ defense was downright suffocating.

Prep roundup: Waterford overwhelms Central in football

Central was limited to 64 rushing yards and six first downs in falling to visiting Waterford 35-6 in a Southern Lakes Conference football game on Friday night.

The Wolverines scored the game’s first 35 points in moving to 3-1 in the SLC and 5-1 overall.

Carthage football hosts Augustana

The plan was pretty simple for the Carthage football team following a five-point loss to seventh-ranked Wheaton last Saturday.

“We’ve got to respond to a loss to a good football team and come back to play another good football team, and find a way to win the game,” Red Men coach Mike Yeager said.

Former Indian Trail football player Manny Jones catching on at UW-Whitewater


UW-Whitewater football player Manny Jones was told if he worked hard in the offseason, his playing time would increase. But the amount the 5-foot-10 sophomore wideout from Indian Trail has received so far has exceeded even his expectations.

“You have to pinch yourself when you go out there, but it’s settling in now,” he said. “I’m starting to learn my role and I’m just going from there.”

Bradford’s big bash


Not since Bradford defeated Tremper 28-14 in a WIAA Division-1 quarterfinal in 2010 has there been this much anticipation for an intra-city high school football matchup.

No, Thursday night’s 7 p.m. Southeast Conference game between Bradford and Indian Trail doesn’t carry the cachet of a trip to the state semifinals.

Mel, Trae rewind


Former Bradford teammates Melvin Gordon and Trae Waynes were flashpoints in their NFL games on Sunday.

Gordon recorded his first career 100-yard game and scored in the San Diego Chargers’ win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
