After beating Brookfield East on Friday, the Whitefish Bay football team will play Watertown or Waunakee next weekend with a trip to the state championship game on the line.
For much of Friday night, it looked like the Brookfield East football team's season, the best the school has ever seen, would continue. It looked like the Spartans were on their way to the WIAA Division 2 semifinals, toting a perfect 11-0 record with them And it looked like the East was going to do what no other team has done this season and contain Whitefish Bay running back Rashadeem Gray. But in a blink, that all changed. After being completely bottled up in the first half of a Level 3 WIAA Division 2 football playoff game, Gray broke out in the second half and carried the Blue Dukes to a shocking come-from-behind 24-14 victory. Whitefish Bay (10-1) will play the winner of Saturday’s Waunakee-Watertown game next weekend in a state …

The Spartans finish the regular season 8-0 and head into the playoffs with their first Greater Metro Conference title in 28 years.
The Brookfield East football team finished with a perfect season, winning the Greater Metro Conference title outright in its first crown in 28 years. The Spartans knocked off Sussex Hamilton 14-13 in OT, in a battle that was scoreless at half and tied 7-7 at the end of regulation. The final play was a defensive one, with East stopping the Chargers at the one-yard line. They blocked a two-point conversion that would have flipped the outcome and had the Spartans and Chargers sharing the conference title.

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.
