Muskego used 42 straight points in the first half to help push themselves to a 56-7 victory of Waukesha North on Friday night.
“Our kids have been on a good run since our Oconomowoc game as we have had weekly improvement on defense, offense and special teams,” Muskego head coach Ken Krause said. “It sort of continued into that game.”
Running back Carson Hollman and quarterback Dylan Krause both had rushing touchdowns midway through the first quarter to help give Muskego an early 14-0 lead. On the ensuing possession, Sal Zizzo made an impact on defense as he took a 27-yard fumble return for a touchdown before Krause connected with Hunter Logan on a 25-yard touchdown pass to complete the first quarter scoring.
In the second quarter, Muskego added touchdown runs from Krause and Sam Steuber to push the lead to 42-0 with 4:36 to go in the half. With 1:44 to go in the second quarter, quarterback Jonah Friede connected with Spencer Roberstson on a 14-yard touchdown pass for Waukesha North’s lone score of the game.
In the second half, Muskego got a 13-yard touchdown run from Aiden Krause and a four yard touchdown run from Beau Martins to complete the scoring.
Aiden Krause led the way offensively for Muskego with 81 yards on three carries, while Hollman and Steuber both ran for 71 yards. Austin Elger led the Muskego defense with eight tackles, while Adam Balcerak had seven in the game.
Waukesha North quarterback Jonah Friede threw for 93 yards and one touchdown in the loss. Muskego only allowed Waukesha North to run for six yards on the ground in the game.
“Our entire defensive line are new starters and they just make weekly improvement,” Krause said. “I think it really showed in that game.”
Muskego improves to 8-1 on the season and will take on Oconomowoc at home in level one playoff action.
“We’re just really proud we made it, and we are excited that we have a home game,” Krause said of the playoffs. “We feel like we have the best atmosphere in the state on a Friday night, and we are looking forward to playing in front of our home crowd.”
