Union Grove’s offensive machine was hitting on all cylinders Friday night as it kept the scoreboard operators busy with a 47-14 win over Salem Westosha Central for a Wisconsin high school football victory on September 3.
“Westosha’s team has improved, with the departures and some players not coming out I wasn’t sure what to expect,” Union Grove head coach Craig McClelland said. “They are very disciplined and tough, but I thought we did a good job of making some adjustments and stayed true to our game plan.”
The Broncos drew first blood by forging a 13-7 margin over the Falcons after the first quarter.
The Broncos’ power showed as they carried a 27-7 lead into the fourth quarter.
Nate Williams led the Union Grove passing attack going 5-for-5 for 125 yards with one touchdown pass, while also having 118 yards rushing on seven carries and two more touchdowns on the ground. Cody Cotton also gave the Broncos 221 yards rushing on 25 carries with two touchdowns of his own.
“Cody does a great job and earns some very tough yards. Along with starting at CB and in the return game Cody rarely comes off the field,” McClelland said of Cotton. “After we got up a couple scores, we were able to limit his touches in the second half. Nathan did a great job of picking up the carries in the second half.”
Brock Koeppel led the Westosha Central passing attack going 11-for-26 for 138 yards and also had 67 yards on the ground. Jakob Simmons led the Falcons’ rushing attack with 130 yards and two touchdowns, while Zach Kazumura led the team in receiving with five catches for 62 yards.
Union Grove improves to 3-0 on the season, and will take on Waterford at home this week.
“Waterford is always a challenge. They are very well coached and play very consistent tough football,” McClelland said of the Waterford game. “We must play a full game and cannot afford any let ups or mental mistakes. We are hoping for a great week of practice.”
