WEMO Season Wraps Up, Week 7

Week seven wrapped up the WEMO football standings as a clear delineation appeared atop the conference.  The Prepcasts-KCMW game of the week featured two teams seeking their first victory of the season as the Archie Whirlwinds traveled to battle the Appleton City Bulldogs for the Dogs Homecoming.  Both teams have been riddled with injuries throughout the season and as districts loom, were looking for an opportunity to “right the ship”.
The game began with fireworks for the first four minutes as the Bulldogs took the opening kickoff 85 yards for the score.  With Archie reeling, Appleton City recovered a muffed kick, drove in for their second score, and then cashed a quick interception into another short field and TD drive to lead 23-0 four minutes into the contest.  The teams would battle back and forth for field position for the duration of the first half until AC punched in one more score before the half pushing the margin to 29-0.
Archie would drive the field to score opening the third frame only to watch Appleton retake a four TD edge by scoring late in the third quarter.  Two additional scores from the Whirlwinds would cut the final margin down, but the Bulldogs get their first win of the season beating Archie 35-18.  In other conference action, Midway pitched their 4th shutout of the year besting Rich Hill 54-0 to win the WEMO conference and remain undefeated.  A loss to Hamilton likely will push Midway into the top 3 rankings moving into week 8.
Osceola took complete control over Adrian in the battle of the Indians after leading by two scores at the half, before running away with a 63-18 victory solidifying their spot in the second position in the WEMO.  Drexel played the only non-conference match of the week taking on class 2 Sherwood on the road and stealing away with a hard fought 12-6 win.
