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.

St. Joseph put two touchdowns on the scoreboard late in the opening half and never was threatened from there in a 27-6 victory to improve to 4-2 overall and 3-1 in conference play.

Prep football: Burlington Catholic Central (1-4, 1-2 MCC) vs. St. Joseph (3-2, 2-1 MCC)

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Tremper High School (Ameche Field), 8560 26th Ave.

Draper steps in for victorious Lancers


When Wyatt Draper stepped onto Ameche Field on Friday night for pregame warmups, the St. Joseph junior running back had no idea he was about to become the focal point of the Lancers’ no-huddle offense.

That’s because the county’s leading rusher — senior Jerry Madden — had to be helped off the field on the game’s opening kickoff against visiting Racine Lutheran with a hip injury.

Monday Morning Quarterback: Experience pays off


There were plenty of accolades to go around after Wilmot’s 64-7 thumping of visiting Cudahy on Friday.

Lancers pull away


Looking at the final score of Saturday night’s season-opener for St. Joseph, the casual prep football fans might think the Lancers were dominant in every phase of the game against visiting St. Francis.

However, St. Joseph’s 48-14 non-conference victory over the Mariners at Indian Trail’s Jaskwhich Stadium was not perfect.
