We’re already through level one of the WIAA playoffs. The games only get harder and the players only get better. We saw some really good games last week as well. Can we expect the same this week? Here are five games to watch for in the level two playoffs.
Division 1- Kimberly at Neenah
This should be a great battle Friday night. Kimberly defeated Neenah at Kimberly 31-10 on October 7. Two of the best running backs in the state are a part of this game as well. Blake Barry of Kimberly and Jace Jenkins of Neenah. The Rockets will be looking for the home revenge. The winner of this game most likely will travel to Waunakee next week.
Kimberly defeated Fond Du Lac 42-14 last week while Neenah beat Brookfield East 40-14.
Division 2- DeForest at Sun Prairie East
DeForest is the defending division 3 state champions while Sun Prairie East (as Sun Prairie last season) was the runner up in division 1. Both teams know what it takes to get the state championship. Whoever wins this contest will be a tough out the rest of the way.
DeForest defeated Sun Prairie West 53-6 in level one. Sun Prairie East beat Oregon 46-6.
Division 3- Pewaukee at Monroe
I mentioned last week that Pewaukee should not be slept on and would be a tough out. Monroe has been one of the top teams in division 3 all season. I think this has the chance to be the best game in the state Friday night.
The Pirates beat Plymouth last week 37-0 while Monroe defeated Portage 49-20.
Division 4- Two Rivers at Kewauskum
Two Rivers has blown out opponents all season. Until their week nine match-up against Chilton (a win in triple overtime), none of their games have been close. However, the WIAA didn’t seem to be impressed with their scheduled and gave them a three seed. Kewauskum awaits the Raiders what should be the best team Two Rivers has faced to this point.
The Purple Raiders beat Kettle Moraine Lutheran 48-14 last week. Kewauskum beat KLC in level one 31-6. I would not be surprised if a lot of points was scored in this game.
Division 7- Reedsville at Shiocton
I could see this game being a defensive battle. Shiocton has been impressive in a tough CWC conference that includes Amherst and Stratford. Normally in division 6, the Chiefs drop to division 7 and is one of the best teams in this division. Reedsville is the defending division 7 state champs and can win in multiple different ways.
Reedsville beat a good Catholic Central team 28-14 in level one while the Chiefs beat Lourdes Academy 42-0.
