Kewaunee knocks off Appleton Xavier

To call it a blustery evening would be an understatement. Near gale force winds made it a challenging environment for a Level 3 WIAA playoff game, but Kewaunee and Appleton Xavier came to play.

The teams kept things close in the first half, but Kewaunee took control in the second half to win 25-14.

It was pretty much the Connor O'Brien and Craig Christman show most of the game – both very talented runners.

Here are a few of my favorites from last night...
