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!
