Arrowhead High School
Verona Area High School
In the first round of the playoffs Verona squared off with Arrowhead high school. After a couple Verona mistakes Arrowhead jumped out to a 14 point lead. Just before the first quarter expired Jack Scott tipped a ball to himself for an interception and returned it inside the 10-yard line.
The second quarter belonged to the Wildcat quarterbacks. Max Fink and Aaron Young sandwiched an Arrowhead field goal with 4-yard touchdown passes to Hunter Bourne to go into half down 14-17.
The second half was a defensive battle with the only points coming in the third quarter from a 40 yard fumble return by Jared Grassman to take the lead 21-17. Verona held for the fourth and will play Lake Geneva Badger next Friday at 7:00 in Lake Geneva.
