Wilmot falls to Burlington on missed field goal on final play

BURLINGTON — One punch to the gut from Burlington wasn’t enough apparently.

Two weeks after suffering a quadruple-overtime defeat to the Demons, the Wilmot football team lost out on a chance at redemption when Adam Pacey missed a 37-yard field goal on the final play of the game in a 21-20 heartbreaker in the first round of the WIAA Division-2 playoffs on Friday night at Don Dalton Stadium.

“We have faith in our special teams and I still have faith in them,” Wilmot coach Erick Kaiser said. “I wouldn’t change a thing about that ending as far as calling it and having trust in kicking the field goal. I’m not too mad about any execution or calls or anything like that. It’s a tough one.”

Wilmot defense something to shout about


Shortly after the Wilmot football team’s starting defensive unit was introduced last week in Lake Geneva, a voice in the Badger press box announced to anyone within earshot: “They only have two starters over 200 pounds on that defense!”

After a few moments, the same voice added, “But, I’m sure they are quick and fast like previous Wilmot teams.”

Wilmot hands Elkhorn its first defeat

ELKHORN — Already without three starting linemen and two of its top ball carriers, the Wilmot football team’s fortunes took a turn for the worse when two-way lineman Collin Robinson gingerly walked off the field with an ankle injury on Friday night.

With their sideline resembling a MASH unit and their depth chart put to the ultimate test, the patchwork Panthers were still able to knock off previously unbeaten Elkhorn, 21-7, in a Southern Lakes Conference matchup.

Wilmot wows with win over Waterford

WILMOT — With all of its intricacies, football is an easy sport to overanalyze. If you try to watch too much, you’ll risk seeing little.

That’s why the Wilmot football team’s dominating 18-0 shutout of powerful Waterford in a key Southern Lakes Conference game at Frank Bucci Field Friday was beautiful in its simplicity.
