Watertown and Slinger also lose Friday night to end their seasons
While OHS and Wisconsin Lutheran advanced Friday night in the WIAA playoffs, two other Wisconsin Little Ten teams did not. Watertown was hammered by Lake Geneva Badger, 35-9, and Slinger lost to Cedarburg, 8-0.
Wisco, the defending D3 state champion, but only a No. 7 seed, defeated No. 2 seed, New Berlin Eisenhower, 18-7.
The Badger win was not a surprise, however. Badger earned a No. 2 seed, while Watertown was a No.7.
Badger completely dominated the game, amassing 346 rushing yards on a stunning 62 carries. The Badger defense also dominated, limiting Watertown to 28 yards on the ground and 171 passing. It also kept the Goslings off the scoreboard completely in the second and third quarters while allowing only a field goal in the first quarter.
Slinger, a second-place team in the WLT, lost to Cedarburg, the third-place team in the North Shore conference. Slinger was a No. 3 seed while Cedarburg is a No. 6. One of Slinger’s wins this year was against Whitefish Bay, the North Shore champ. Its only other lost was to OHS, 28-14, on Oct. 2.
Friday night, in the rain, the Owls produced nothing offensively. It had only 61 yards of total offense with all those yards coming on the ground. It was 0 for 6 in the air. Cedarburg, as the score indicates, wasn’t that impressive either on offense. It finished with under 200 yards total offense.
