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.

Franklin is 8-1 after running the table in the SEC heading into the playoffs. Tremper will play Waukesha West at 7 p.m. Thursday at Ameche Field in the extra game the WIAA allows for non-playoff teams.

Defensive stop keyed Devils


In a game that featured 94 points and 967 yards of total offense, it’s easy to ignore that an old-fashioned defensive stand was a key moment in Bradford’s 60-34 Southeast Conference win over Tremper at Mary D. Bradford Stadium on Friday night.

But it’s definitely worth noting.

MMQB: Lancers not worrying


St. Joseph’s chance to win its first conference championship since 2005, when it was a member of the now-defunct Lakeshore Conference, is all but over following the Lancers’ 24-13 loss to Racine St. Catherine’s on Friday night at Ameche Field on Friday night.

While St. Catherine’s (6-2, 5-1 MCC) clinched at least a share of the Metro Classic Conference title with the win, St. Joseph (5-3 overall) dropped into a three-way tie for second in the eight-team league at 4-2 with Greendale Martin Luther (6-2 overall) and Racine Lutheran (5-3 overall).

Bradford, Tremper in crucial game


In 2007, 2009 and 2010, the Bradford and Tremper football teams met in the postseason for the only times in the rivalry’s history, with the Red Devils emerging as the victors each time.

Technically, Friday night isn’t a fourth playoff game in the series. But it may as well be.

Leading Off: An early prep football playoff primer


If you haven’t gotten out to see a county high school football game yet, there are plenty of playoff and conference title implications with two regular-season weeks remaining.

Tremper can’t punch in game-winner

With two of his top offensive weapons no longer an option, Tremper football coach Jared McGranahan was forced to improvise from within the playbook.

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.”
