We have made it to the WIAA State Football Championships. 14 teams remain and will play for seven state titles. Games begin Thursday and will conclude Friday evening. All games will be played at Camp Randall Stadium. Here is a look at all the games.
Thursday WIAA State Football Championships
10 AM- Division 7: Regis (13-0) vs. Shiocton (11-2)
1 PM- Division 6: Stratford (10-2) vs. Mondovi (12-1)
4 PM- Division 5: Aquinas (12-1) vs. Mayville (13-0)
7 PM- Division 4: Catholic Memorial (13-0) vs. Columbus (13-0)
I am intrigued to watch the division 4 and 5 games. Catholic Memorial is going for three WIAA State Football Championships in a row in division 4. However, Two Rivers gave the Crusaders all they could handle last week in a 20-14 win. I always thought Columbus was the second-best team behind Catholic Memorial. Subsequently, Columbus has a legit shot to dethrone the Crusaders.
Division 5 is a rematch of last year’s title game. Aquinas won that match-up 28-26 so Mayville will be looking for revenge. These have been two of the best teams in division 5 consistently all season.
Friday WIAA State Football Championships
10 AM- Division 3: Monroe (13-0) vs. West Salem (12-1)
1 PM- Division 2: Kettle Moraine (10-3) vs. West De Pere (12-1)
4 PM- Division 1: Kimberly (12-1) vs. Mukwonago (12-1)
Kimberly has certainly had in my opinion the most impressive ride to the WIAA State Football Championships. They drew a three-seed despite losing only one game. They beat Fond du Lac, who gave the Papermakers their only loss, Neenah and Waunakee on the road, and top-ranked Bay Port on a neutral field last week 42-21.
Kettle Moraine and West De Pere should be a fun game as well. Kettle Moraine usually plays in a division 1 conference so they are built to last late in the playoffs. West De Pere also plays in one of the best conferences in the state in the FRCC.
