Each week during this year’s high school football season, I’m giving out a weekly POO Award to the
POO stands for Piling On Offensively (Or if you prefer, Pouring it On Offensively).
Luck 73, Birchwood 22
Edgar 71, Chequamegon 7
Edgar usually ends up on my list once a season. It led 59-0 at halftime of their blowout.
Ashwaubenon 64, Green Bay West 0
The halftime score: 57-0.
Walworth Big Foot 61, Clinton 12
Last week Big Foot scored 57. They outdid themselves this week.
UPDATE: The POO Award is posted each week on Saturday morning. However, some high school games are played on Saturday afternoon. After Saturday's action, I am adding another POO recipient:
University School 70,
Leading 54-0 in the second half,
Extremely reliable sources tell me that when the score became 47-0 in the 2nd quarter, the commissioner of athletics for MPS instructed the official timer to implement the running clock, even though WIAA rules order a running clock not be used until the second half.
Assistant coaches for
Edgar 63, Phillips 0
Elkhart Lake 67, Stockbridge 0
"We try not to run up the score on teams, but sometimes it just happens on accident," Bakari Triggs of Riverside told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
These accidents seem to happen a lot with
Edgar 64, Tomahawk 0
Cedar Grove-Belgium 63, Maranatha Baptist 0
Coleman 68, Laona/Wabeno 0
Whitefish Bay 58, Milwaukee Bradley Tech 24
Leading 51-24 with only a few minutes left in the game and possession of the ball, Bay hurriedly broke the huddle and quickly ran play after play. With 1:16 remaining, Bay got a first down inside the Tech 10-yard line, a perfect chance to take a knee a few times and run out the clock. That classy move, however, was not in the Bay playbook, and with :39 they ran it in for their final score making the final 58-24.
