Wilmot beats Burlington to lock up playoff spot

After two crushing losses to Burlington last season, the Wilmot football team delivered some payback to the Demons on Friday night.

The Panthers clinched a spot in the WIAA Division-2 playoffs for the sixth consecutive season with a 34-27 Southern Lakes Conference victory at Burlington.

Wilmot dominant in shutout of Lake Geneva Badger


WILMOT — A week ago, Wilmot football coach Erick Kaiser said his team was “lucky” and “didn’t deserve to win” when it committed 18 penalties for 145 yards and had three red-zone turnovers in its Southern Lakes Conference victory at then-unbeaten Union Grove.

On Friday night, there was no doubt that Kaiser’s Panthers deserved to walk off Frank Bucci Field with their heads held high after their dominating 14-0 SLC triumph over Lake Geneva Badger.

Wilmot regroups and clubs Elks


WILMOT — Following an excruciating overtime loss at Waterford last week, Wilmot football coach Erick Kaiser bluntly implored his staff — himself, especially — to get more out of its players.

After a shaky start on Friday night, the Panthers gave their coaches just about all they could ask for.

Waterford slips past Wilmot


WATERFORD — At some point in the last few years, the Wilmot football program must have done something to anger the overtime gods.

Unable to hold a 10-point lead in the final nine minutes of regulation, the Panthers dropped their Southern Lakes Conference opener to preseason favorite Waterford in overtime, 24-17, on Friday night.

Wilmot leaves little doubt

Thanks to sophomore quarterback A.J. Frisby, it didn’t take the Wilmot football team long to take control of its game on Friday night.

With Frisby having a hand in five of the team’s six touchdowns, the Panthers grabbed a 35-point lead at halftime en route to a 41-13 non-conference triumph at Cudahy to improve to 2-0.

Wilmot grad Nelson ready for chance with Warhawks


It seems like a lifetime ago that Chris Nelson was flinging the football all over the place at Wilmot.

From there, he traveled to Northern Michigan on a scholarship — but that lasted just one year before he decided to get closer to home.

Monday Morning Quarterback: Wilmot football team makes a statement


The Wilmot football team’s 21-16 victory over Bradford at Frank Bucci Field on Friday may have sent a few reverberations through the southern portion of the Wisconsin football community.

A smaller school from a smaller division beating a large school with large athletes can certainly be seen as an upset.

Wilmot knocks off Bradford


WILMOT — Soaked in sweat and still exhausted with his pads mostly removed, Wilmot senior lineman Wyatt Heckel wore a huge grin as the Bradford football players — many obviously larger than Heckel — walked behind him to the locker room.

On this Friday night, at least, Heckel and his undersized teammates would not be denied.

Wilmot aims to improve passing game


When the Wilmot football team had the ball last season, a trip to the restroom or a quick journey for a popcorn might have caused you to miss almost a whole quarter by the time you returned to your seat.

The Panthers’ heavily run-oriented, ball-control offense moved the chains and produced long, time-consuming drives, a big reason they went 5-2 in the Southern Lakes Conference (6-4 overall), won a share of the SLC title for the third time in four years and qualified for the WIAA Division-2 playoffs for the fifth straight season.

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.

PADDOCK LAKE — Either in the visiting locker room or somewhere on the bus between Paddock Lake and Wilmot, a huge cheer erupted from the Wilmot football team.

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.”
