Wilmot football coach Keiya Square probably couldn’t have envisioned a better weekend for his team’s Week 9 road trip to Delavan.
MOUNT PLEASANT — After time ran out on a game it desperately wanted to win, members of the Racine Case football team didn’t seem overly upset.
After losing at Waterford in Week 4, the Wilmot football team knew it just had to put its head down and keep winning games if it wanted a chance to catch the Wolverines for a share of the Southern Lakes Conference title.
For the first eight weeks of the season, the Bradford football team relied on its defense to keep it in games.
Junior quarterback Ryan McGonegle had a huge game for the Trojans, finishing 23-of-48 for 298 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions, but the Rebels emerged with a 41-32 victory in a high-scoring Southeast Conference game at Horlick Field.
RACINE — A talented St. Joseph football team that opened this season with four straight victories arrived at Horlick Field on Thursday night dealing with this reality:
To see if its season will continue, the St. Joseph football team will now play the waiting game.
Christian Life (2-6) at De Soto (6-2)
Shoreland Lutheran (2-6, 1-5 Metro Classic) at Whitefish Bay Dominican (2-6, 1-5 Metro Classic)
Central (2-6, 2-4 SLC) at Union Grove (3-5, 2-4 SLC)
Wilmot (7-1, 5-1 SLC) at Delavan-Darien (2-6, 1-5 SLC)
Indian Trail (6-2, 5-1 SEC) at Racine Case (4-4, 3-3 SEC)
Tremper (2-6, 1-5 SEC) at Racine Horlick (2-6, 1-5 SEC)
Racine Park (3-5, 2-4 SEC) at Bradford (2-6, 2-4 SEC)
The St. Joseph football team missed the playoffs last year after a string of three consecutive postseason berths.
There was nothing pretty about Bradford’s 6-0 overtime win over Tremper in a Southeast Conference game Friday night at Ameche Field that must’ve had those in attendance wondering if either offense was ever going to put points on the board.
Wilmot senior Zack Watson is known to opponents as a dangerous runner from the quarterback position, but that’s not to say he can’t pass the ball a little bit as well.
Oak Creek senior kicker Dragan Kesich, a 6-foot-4, 250-pound NCAA Division I prospect, has such a powerful left leg that sometimes it seems as if he’s capable of simultaneously putting the ball and all the opponent’s special teams players through the uprights from anywhere on the field.
For two quarters Friday night, the Wilmot and Central football teams slugged it out at Frank Bucci Field.
For 24 minutes of football, the Metro Classic Conference leading rusher looked like a mere mortal.
You could say that the 59th meeting between the Bradford and Tremper football teams was memorable.
WILMOT — The host Wilmot football team broke open a close game after halftime with 20 unanswered points to pull away for a 41-14 Southern Lakes Conference victory over county rival Central on Friday night at Frank Bucci Field.
St. John's NW Military (4-3) at Christian Life (2-5)
St. Thomas More (0-7, 0-5 Metro Classic) at Shoreland Lutheran (1-6, 0-5 Metro Classic)
Burlington Catholic Central (4-3, 3-2 Metro Classic) at St. Joseph (5-2, 3-2 Metro Classic)
Central (2-5, 2-3 SLC) at Wilmot (6-1, 4-1 SLC)
Oak Creek (5-2, 4-1 SEC) at Indian Trail (5-2, 4-1 SEC)
Bradford (1-6, 1-4 SEC) at Tremper (2-5, 1-4 SEC)
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Aaron Rodgers looked quite comfortable at the home of the Dallas Cowboys — again.
By all measures, Friday night’s Southern Lakes Conference game between Wilmot and Burlington at Burlington’s Don Dalton Stadium was a classic.
