Milwaukee Lutheran vs Wisconsin Lutheran

On 4th down and short, Daniels takes the pitch and lowers the boom on the Vikings defender, but it's enough to stop them on downs and the Vikings take over. The ensuing drive leads to Jaqueze Lockette finishing things off with an 8 yard score and a 7-0 Wisco lead. The next time they get the ball, Lockette takes the ball and ends up just short of a score. No problem as he gets the ball again and punches it in for a 14-0 lead. Wisconsin Lutheran takes this one, 34 to 20.

Early on we see the tricks by the Trojans, Dominique Dixon and Ginuwine Scott with the reverse on the punt return and Scott takes it the distance. But hold everything, a penalty brings it back. That's great news for the Rockets as they force the fumble and recover it deep in Tech's territory. That leads to a Juan Razo's 37 yard field goal as they trim the lead to 8-3. In the 2nd quarter, it's Robert Jordan cashing in with a short touchdown and South leads 9-8 after missing the 2 point conversion. Bradley Tech goes on to the 44 to 23 win.
