First-year Bradford football coach Troy Bowe knew where his team stood.

The first half of Friday’s Southeast Conference game between Indian Trail and Racine Case at Jaskwhich Stadium could adequately be called rag-tag, hodge-podge, unsightly football.

The games don’t count for another week, but Kenosha County high school football teams will further their preparation for the season by participating in scrimmages today.
Backyard barbecues, lazy days in the pool and summer driving trips show no signs of abating soon, but today serves a reminder that we’re creeping toward fall again.

The Indian Trail Hawks did everything they could to keep unbeaten Racine Horlick from running over them. They partially succeeded.
