Oconomowoc used two late scores to snap Muskego’s 41 game win streak in a 21-14 home victory on Friday.
“We took advantage of what we perceived were our strengths against a phenomenal team,” Oconomowoc head coach Sal Logue said. “The kids just executed and played their hearts out.”
Raccoons quarterback Jack Hellman got the scoring started in the first quarter with an one yard touchdown run to grab a 7-0 lead. Muskego responded in the second quarter with a 43-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Dylan Krause to Hunter Logan to tie the game at the half.
Early in the fourth quarter, Raccoons running back Brandon Wraalstad gave Oconomowoc the 14-7 lead with a two yard touchdown run before Krause connected on a 56-yard touchdown pass with Logan 25 seconds later to tie the game.
With just under a minute to go, Hellman started Oconomowoc’s last offensive drive with a 15-yard run to start the drive. With 41 seconds left in the game, Hellman hit Carter on a 70-yard touchdown pass to give the Raccoons the dramatic win.
Hellman led the Oconomowoc passing attack going 19-for-28 for 193 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He also led the Raccoons’ rushing attack with 127 yards with one touchdown run on 22 carries.
“Jack was the best player on the field as he made so many plays throughout the game to keep drives alive and that meant keeping them (Muskego) off the field,” Logue said. “Our whole goal was to get it to the fourth quarter and try to put pressure on them.”
Tower led Oconomowoc receivers with 93 yards on four receptions and one touchdown, while Connor Doyle led the team in receptions with eight.
Krause led the Muskego passing attack going 11-for-20 for 213 yards and two touchdowns, while Sam Steuber ran for 61 yards on 12 carries. Logan led all Muskego receivers with five receptions for 130 yards and two touchdowns.
Oconomowoc goes to 3-2 on the season, while Muskego falls to 4-1. Muskego takes on state power Arrowhead at home, while Oconomowoc takes on Waukesha South on the road next week.
