Northwestern football coach Jovin Kroll spoke earlier this week about how the Tigers had to « cross the hump », and it was very clear what he was talking about.
Kroll was talking about hitting a saint. Croix Central, a program that obstructed Northwestern in the Wisconsin High School football qualifier from 2016 to 2018, with the Panthers advancing to the state championship match in each of those years.
It was the Tigers’ turn this year as big-back Brennen Werner sprinted 20 times the 122 yards and two drops in Northwestern lead to a tough 14-0 defensive victory over St.. . Croix Central at the opening match of the Wisconsin Playoffs Division 3 Division 1 Friday Night in Hudson, Wisconsin.
Kroll said, « The men gathered everything tonight and played with a fire they did not light this year. ». “That win really meant something to everyone on this show. Our seniors have worked for four years until they can finally get through this program – a lot of them were wandering with tears in their eyes, and they were so happy..
Northwestern (6-1) had a 245-79 yard advantage over the Panthers (6-2) as Tanner Kaufman and Nick McKellah led the way with eight tackles each. Werner added seven tackles and Colin Trout’s intercept.
The third seeded Tigers will close the season in No. 1 Ellsworth (7-0) at 7 pm. . M. Thursday, November. 19, with the game the day before to accommodate deer hunting. Ellsworth took the lead with a 44-0 win over Somerset.
Kroll said that in the year of COVID-19, with the craziest form of matches we’ve ever seen, with the four-team capsules used instead of the real playoff category, nothing is quite the same.. However, this win definitely made a lot of sense as winning brings a certain statewide respect.
“For all the things that haven’t happened in 2020, they’ll have this milestone to look at with pride,” said Kroll.. « And let’s face it, for future seasons with the computer rankings taking into account the results of the previous post-season, we needed that win. ».
