Gridders’ Win Streak Now 16

Win Battle Of Unbeatens

It was a classic matchup between two unbeaten and long-time rival football teams that were ranked number one and two in the state, and the end result did not disappoint a packed house at Hugh Schilling Field on Friday night.

Number-one ranked Britton-Hecla dominated the first half, grabbing a 22-3 lead at intermission, but the Braves could never deliver a knockout punch. Clark-Willow Lake battled back to trail 28-27 but ran out of time when an onside kick attempt failed with 1:33 to play.

“We played a great football game,” said B-H coach Pat Renner, whose club now has won 16 straight games over the past two years. “I couldn’t ask for any more effort out of any of them.”

Britton-Hecla, now 5-0, will take on Florence-Henry (1-4) in Henry at 7 p.m. Friday.
