Close game at the half turns into a route as Bay wins 28-3 and gets ready to take on Brookfield East in third round of the playoffs.
What started out as a tight 4-point lead at halftime soon led to a Whitefish Bay offensive onslaught that ended in a 28-3 victory over Brookfield Central in the second round of the WIAA Divsion 2 football playoffs. Scoring was slow in the first half of the Saturday afternoon game, with a field goal by Brookfield Central on their first possession and a 19-yard touchdown run by Whitefish Bay's Rashadeem Gray in the second quarter. Then in the third quarter, momentum really swung in the Blue Dukes' favor, when Whitefish Bay quarterback Grant Menard connected with backup receiver Ian Buchanan for a 40-yard pass on third and 8 that brought them within 10 yards of the goal line. Jeremiah Holt ran the ball in on the following play. "That was a …

The Indians will host Brookfield Central tonight at Schumann Stadium. With a win, and a little help from their rivals, the team could earn a share of the conference title.
The Indians did what they had to do Friday to earn a slice of the Greater Metro Conference title, but it wasn't meant to be. The Indians blanked the Brookfield Central Lancers 14-0 to finish the year 6-1 in conference play and 7-1 overall. The Indians needed some help from an unlikely ally in the Sussex Hamilton Chargers in order to grab a share of the title. However, Brookfield East pulled out a win against Sussex 14-13 in overtime and remained undefeated to capture sole possesion of the Greater Metro crown. Had the Chargers won, it would have forced a three-way tie for first place. Regardless, Falls sent the fans home happy on Homecoming night. Falls running back Cole Hernikl scored the first points of the game on a 7-yard rush. The …

Ten turnovers doom Lancers in 30-20 loss to Racine Park.
Racine Park head football coach Dennis Thompson’s philosophy is pretty simple: work hard and you’ll be rewarded. One game into the season and that mantra is already coming through. The Panthers, who finished 4-5 overall last year, picked up a big non-conference win Friday night by knocking off Brookfield Central, 30-20. “Kicking off the season, this was a great win for us,” Thompson said. “(Brookfield Central) is a good program and I told the guys, ‘This is not going to be an easy game. They come to play football here at BC.' ’’ “The kids have to dig down deep in the offseason. We preach it and preach it. Some of them buy into it, some of them don’t," he said. "Everyone wants to play, but not everyone buys into it. “The seniors really …
