The William Horlick High School Rebels football team is headed to the WIAA play-offs after a final regular season win over Park last week.
And while Coach Brian Fletcher is looking forward to the team’s playoff experience, he hopes his Rebels pull together and play a cleaner game Friday against Kenosha Indian Trail at Indian Trail, a story in The Journal Times reads.
“The biggest thing tonight is that I wasn’t really happy with the way we played at all in the first half,” Fletcher told the newspaper. “We must get better if we’re going to be successful in the playoffs.”
Horlick finished with a 5-4 record for the season, 5-2 for the conference. If they win, the Rebels will have home field advantage in the second round when they face the winner of the Janesville Parker-Muskego game.
School spirit is strong this week at Horlick; special play-off t-shirts go on sale Wednesday for $15 each.
The game starts at 7 p.m. at Indian Trail, 6800 60th Street, in Kenosha. The state championship game is set for 4 p.m. Nov. 20 at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison.
