MOUNT PLEASANT — First-year Tremper football coach Jared McGranahan was blunt, calling his team’s performance in the first quarter of Friday night’s game against Racine Park “terrible.”
The Trojans’ offense committed eight first-quarter penalties, including one that wiped out a touchdown. Tremper also fumbled once but kept it, and quarterback Alec Becker threw an interception deep in Panthers territory.
There were plenty of accolades to go around after Wilmot’s 64-7 thumping of visiting Cudahy on Friday.
Included in the praise was the work of the Panthers’ talented underclassmen who have helped their team post a 2-0 record in a pair of non-conference contests heading into Friday’s Southern Lakes Conference opener with defending co-champion Waterford.
Tremper has changed the date and venue of its varsity football opener to Thursday, Aug. 18 at Jaskwhich Stadium, the school announced Monday.
Tremper was originally scheduled to open Aug. 19 against non-conference Lake Geneva Badger at renovated Ameche Field but the facility won’t be ready by then, according to Tremper athletic director John Matera.
