Game of the week: Homestead wins 27-10 over Hartford
A slog in Mequon. Homestead and Hartford, a scoreless game through a wet first half. But the Highlanders kicked it into high gear in the second half. Bradley Woldt shows off the acrobatics and then scampers 41 yards to put the first points on the board for the Highlanders. And who says you can't take to the air on a misty night. Matthew Hartlieb hauls it in. That's a 49-yard score and Homestead builds a comfortable lead. Woldt would score one more time, this time from 44 yards out. It's a 27-10 win, as Homestead goes to seven and one on the season.
"The offensive coordinator made some adjustments in the locker room and sparked a fire underneath us. We really turned around the game. The defense played unbelievably and that's what we need, for the defense to play the way they do. And the offense to start a little faster," said Bradley Woldt, who scored two touchdowns tonight.
"Hartford is an awfully good team. The intensity today was playoff intensity. We knew they were a quality team, extremely well coached, and our kids rose to the occasion. A lot of the credit goes to the coaches for the adjustments our coaches made at halftime, they did a great job. Kids came out fired up and I was very proud of them," said Dave Keel, Homestead Head Coach.
Homestead will be rooting for Hartford next week. Hartford plays conference leader Whitefish Bay and with a Hartford upset, Homestead could grab a share of the conference title.
