Coming off of a win against Waukesha West, 27-24, the Warhawks look to add to the win column. 


Coach Matt Harris, who has coached the football team since 2020, said, “We are bigger, stronger, and faster than Waukesha North, but they do some things well that we have to concentrate on and stay disciplined.” 


The last two seasons the Warhawks have faced the Northstars, they have won by huge point differentials like last season’s 49-13 and the 2021 season’s 64-6 final. 


Multiple Arrowhead football players said the team has been struggling with gaining momentum in games and keeping the drive alive against tough defenses. 


Senior WR Matthew Ortin says, “Some points of emphasis [have] been to see the full potential from our offense and put together a complete four quarters.”


Senior LB Brady Carpenter said that they “need to stop playing down to [other] teams levels.” 


According to Wisconsin Sports Network, Waukesha North’s quarterback A.J Curtis passed for about 241.8 yards per game last year. As for this year, the QB has increased his passing yards per game to an average of 310.0 yards. 


Carpenter says, “As a team we have improved on communication and speed knowing that Waukesha North passes a lot.” 


As for the game Harris says, “We look to have a complete game this week offense, defense, and special teams.
