Team is slated to play Milwaukee Riverside in a first round match Friday at Pulaski Stadium.
Messmer/Shorewood quarterback Taylor Dennis said he was in class when he heard the news his team was playoff-bound. "My face just lit up, I was so excited," he said.

Playoffs start Friday and although Martens didn’t say when the pairings needed to be released, the WIAA issued playoff brackets shortly after. Shorewood will take on second-seeded Milwaukee Riverside in the first round of the playoffs Friday night at 7 at Pulaski Stadium. “It’s for the kids and our guys worked really hard,” Messmer/Shorewood football Coach Drake …

Spartans play tough football on both sides to remain undefeated.
In it's simplest form, football is an easy game to understand. Two 11-man teams line up and hit each other. Whichever team pushes to other one backward has the advantage. On Friday night, Brookfield East was able to push Wauwatosa East backward, and that's why they won Brookfield East played a solid, physical football game and came out on top against Wauwatosa East, 29-0. With the win, their record now stands at 5-0, while Wauwatosa East falls to 1-4. For the Red Raiders, Friday's game was just another tough loss in what is turning into a difficult season and their offense continued to struggle. Wauwatosa East receivers also had several key drops. This could be attributed to the temperature but head coach Jake Wolter says there's another …

Turnovers the difference in Lancers big win.
What defensive battle? Brookfield Central broke their long-standing history of having a grind-it-out type game with Sussex-Hamilton by knocking off the Chargers, 56-38, in a barnburner of a game that saw huge offensive numbers and lasted over three hours. “We knew that’s a great Sussex-Hamilton football team, they’re well coached and every time you play them you’ve got to be ready, but I didn’t expect that high of scoring,” Brookfield Central head coach Jamie Meulemans said. “They play great defense year in and year out and we pride ourselves in that too, but our kids are really starting to click offensively. “It’s been outstanding to see the kids pick up (the offense). It’s like preseason in the NFL. You start to see teams come together; …

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 …

Spartans crush Grafton, 55-0, in solid overall performance
The mission of the first game of the season for a strong team always involves two points: First, win and win big. Second, play solid football on both sides. It was mission accomplished Friday night for Brookfield East. Junior running back Zach Schober led the way with 51 yards rushing and two touchdown runs as East defeated Grafton 55-0 in a solid all-around team effort. It was indeed 60 solid minutes of football for the Spartans. They kept penalties to a minimum, tackled well, ran the ball well, and the passing game was near perfect. The only real mistakes the Spartans made all night were mental errors, such as a lineman forgetting to take the field on a point-after attempt in the fourth quarter. Coach Tom Swittel was pleased with his …
