Rockets Season Ends With Loss To Waterford

For the second straight season, the South Milwaukee football team’s season ended with a postseason loss to Waterford.

The sixth-seeded Wolverines, down 14-0 at halftime, dominated the second half en route to a 21-14 victory over the third-seeded Rockets in the first round of the WIAA playoffs Friday night at Spaltholz Field. Here is a game summary.

While the end was disappointing, the Rockets had another strong season. South Milwaukee began the season 8-0 and took home its third straight Woodland Conference East title. The team scored some big wins — including a homecoming shutout of Cudahy and a Woodland crossover win at Pewaukee — and some terrific individual seasons, with quarterback Justin Oliden, running back Ian Pribyl and receiver Mitchell Dess putting up big numbers.

I already can’t wait for 2015!

Here is Racine Journal Times coverage of the game. TMJ4 also had a few highlights.
