An agonizing first loss for Wilmot


LAKE GENEVA — There’s only one way to describe Wilmot’s 27-21 double-overtime loss at Lake Geneva Badger on Friday night.

“Heartbreaking,” Panthers quarterback A.J. Frisby said. “There’s no other word to describe it besides heartbreaking.”

Actually, there is: “Insane,” the Badgers’ John Bowen said.

Wilmot remains unbeaten


WILMOT — With 1 minute, 58 seconds left in a Southern Lakes Conference game at Frank Bucci Field on Friday night, the Wilmot football team led Union Grove by five points and faced a third-and-6 exactly at midfield.

Respect lacking


At 4-0 overall and tied atop the Southern Lakes Conference with Lake Geneva Badger and Delavan-Darien at 2-0, you’d think the Wilmot football team would’ve gotten some love in the state polls this week.

You’d be wrong.

Wilmot 4-0 after rolling over Elkhorn

ELKHORN — Of course there was concern of a letdown. Just not much of one.

One week after beating five-time defending Southern Lakes Conference champion Waterford by three points, the Wilmot football team defeated host Elkhorn, 30-6, on Friday.

Wilmot beats Waterford on late kick


WILMOT — When strong-legged kicker Jeff Shoopman transferred from Christian Life to Wilmot because his family moved prior to last season, the Panthers gained a rare weapon.

Unfortunately, it was shelved last year because Shoopman had to sit our per WIAA transfer rules.

Wilmot opens SLC action against Waterford


Since Waterford joined the realigned Southern Lakes Conference in 2008, one thing is clear:

When you play the Wolverines, even if it’s just the first conference game of the season, SLC title implications are almost certainly at stake.

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.

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.

Wilmot pulverizes Cudahy


WILMOT — When Cudahy’s do-everyone senior Rusty Murphy rumbled into Wilmot’s end zone after blocking a Panthers punt with less than three minutes left in the first quarter, the visiting Packers had tied Friday’s non-conference game at 7-7.

A hard-hitting, back-and-forth battle between two opponents who posted impressive wins in their season openers seemed to be in order after Murphy’s impressive play.

MMQB: A good run for Wilmot


The Wilmot football team got its running game on track in the second half, and that helped the Panthers rally for a 21-14 victory over Bradford in the teams’ season opener Friday night at Jaskwhich Stadium.

Brent runs Wilmot by Devils


The Wilmot football team’s streak of success in season openers continued Friday night at Jaskwhich Stadium, while the opposite trend continued for Bradford.
