This afternoon the Kewaunee Storm will take the long trip to play Winnebago Lutheran Academy in Winnebago. The Storm enters in as a two seed and the Vikings are a six seed. The six seeded Vikings will host the game because of their first round upset from Northern Elite. Kewaunee comes in to today after a 35-0 win over Brillion.
Last week, the Storm played well on all sides of the ball with a balanced offense and holding Brillion to under 100 yards of total offense. Austin Kassner had 125 yards rushing and Caleb Johnson managed the game well in the route.
A big tough opponent is what stands in the Storms way of advancing to the level 3 round of the Division 5 playoffs. Winnebago Lutheran Academy is a run option team that has a running back who ran for well over 1,000 yards and double digit touchdowns. The Storm has a tough defense of battle against the potent rushing attack of the Vikings.
Today’s game starts with the Salmon’s Meats pregame show starting at 12:30 and kick off at 1. Join Nate Alberts and Paul Schmitt for the call. Winner advances to play Cedar Grove Belgium next weekend.
