Arrowhead plays Muskego in Final Matchup

Arrowhead plays Muskego in Final Matchup

The high school football season has been statistically perfect for Arrowhead High School, coming into their last regular season game 8-0.

The Warhawks final regular season matchup is on Friday, October 16th. This away game is against the Muskego Warriors, who are 9-2.

Unlike Arrowhead, Muskego has played more games this season, but has more losses–including a conference loss to Waukesha West, 28-21.

Last week, on Friday, October 9th, temperatures dipped down to 48 °F. That Friday, Arrowhead also played a game against Waukesha South and won 46-7. This earned them their eighth consecutive win of the season.

As for the rest of the games during the 2015 season, Arrowhead won 28-14 against Homestead, 35-27 against Hudson, 56-0 against Waukesha North, 35-7 against Waukesha West, 24-13 against Mukwonago, 23-0 against Catholic Memorial, and 34-14 against Kettle Moraine.

This Friday, temperatures will be around 49 °F, and may dip down as low as 30 °F during the game.

Like any football game, fans will always be there. In this Classic 8 conference game, Ben Bredeson, a senior and a 2015 All-American inductee, thinks fans may have an impact on the outcome of the game.

“There is going to be a lot of people there. We just need to keep our head right and play our game,” Bredeson says. “If we do that, we should win.”

Because the game will be a big rivalry matchup, smack talk is predicted from the players. Weston Meister, a senior has some smack talk of his own.

“I’d say we just need to out tough them because they think they are tougher than us,” Weston said. “Just got to play our game and be disciplined and we should be good.”

Tyler Jones, another senior on the team, also had something to say about Muskego.

“They hang their hats on being really aggressive and tough. We really need to go out  and out tough them, show them that we are the better team,” Jones said.

If Arrowhead were to win this game, they will have gone completely undefeated in the regular season and will have a terrific seed in the playoffs.

Once in the playoffs, the Warhawks will have the opportunity to play four playoff match-ups to get to the WIAA Division 1 High School Football Championship.

This would be the fourth consecutive year the Arrowhead Warhawks would appear at Camp Randall Stadium and the 13th time in Arrowhead’s history.

If Arrowhead achieves this, they will play in the state championships at 4:05 pm on November 20th at the historic Camp Randall Stadium in Madison, Wisconsin.
