For much of Friday night’s WIAA Division 2 football playoff game, Brookfield East was not in top form, while Greendale was playing well.
As a result, the game turned out to be a tight, exciting affair – but in the end, the Spartans made just a few more big plays than the Panthers and walked away with a 28-21 triumph at Stephen J. Gavinski Field in Greendale.
East improved to 10-0 and notched its first-ever second-round playoff victory. The Spartans will meet either Whitefish Bay or Brookfield Central next weekend in a third-round contest.
Greendale, meanwhile, finished an up-and-down season at 6-4.
“It was a great effort,” East head coach Tom Swittel said, “but we just didn’t play well. We were just out of sync on offense and defense. A lot of credit has to go to Greendale for that. They (the Panthers) played extremely well tonight, maybe as well as they could play, I don’t know.» Read Full Article
The Kenosha Bradford Red Devils looked a lot more like the 2011 edition of themselves than the team that faced Oak Creek just over a month ago.
A thrilling 58-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Nate Wilson to wideout Danny Lira with seven seconds left lifted visiting fourth-seeded Bradford to a stunning 21-14 upset over the top-seeded Knights in Friday night’s Level 2 matchup in the WIAA Division 1 playoffs.
On Sept. 21, Oak Creek thumped Bradford, 42-10. It was clear from the pregame
introductions, however, that Bradford wasn’t about to back down from a dogfight.
“Five weeks ago they handled us on both sides of the ball,” Bradford head coach Jim Camerota said. “They did whatever they wanted to do to us. We had 140 total yards in that game, so this is a tremendous turnaround for our kids.”
After a shouting match in warm-ups that was separated by officials and coaches, a back- and-forth battle ensued, ending with Wilson’s dramatic touchdown toss.» Read Full Article

Wisconsin's Medical Examining Board on Monday launched an investigation of a Greendale physician who was apparently never disciplined since admitting to molesting two Boy Scouts in 1987.
The case of Thomas Kowalski, 75, was revealed in secret Boy Scouts of America records that became public last week as part of litigation against the organization in California, and was reported locally Friday.
The records show that Kowalski was prohibited from further work among Scouts but was not prosecuted criminally after the victims' parents were told he would be reported to the medical board and was getting therapy.
The board indicated Friday that it had no record of any complaint against Kowalski, who was first licensed in 1964.
But the current chairman of the Medical Examining Board, Sheldon Wasserman of Milwaukee, said he wants more answers and ordered the investigation Monday.» Read Full Article
