Brookfield Central couldn't have drawn a nicer script for the final game of the football season.
Many people figured the Lancers chances of winning the title were slim and none when they dominated Marquette, but made five turnovers and lost, 10-6, a few weeks back. That left The Hilltoppers and West Allis Hale on top of the pack.
But the Huskies beat Marquette the next week, leaving Hale as the only unbeaten team in conference play, meaning if the Lancers beat Hale in Wednesday's season finale at Hale they would earn a share of the GMC crown.
Well, Sussex Hamilton, fighting for a playoff berth, became the perfect trap game for the Huskies, who beat Marquette and were looking forward to facing the Lancers in the finale. Hamilton coach John Damato had his Chargers ready to play and they knocked off Hale last Friday and now we have a three-way time for first with one game left.
While all eyes will be at the Central-Hale game in West Allis on Wednesday, Marquette has to look out for the same situation that got the Huskies last week. You see, the Hilltoppers, who are in the playoffs, have to play a Menomonee Falls team (3-3) which needs to win or see its season come to end.
It's a wonderful drama and I can't wait to see how it plays out.
On the other side of Brookfield and West Allis, you will find another big game. Brookfield East (0-6) and West Allis Central (0-6) meet at East and each will be seeking their first GMC win of the year. The loser finishes last.
You can bet the hitting at this game will be just as hard as the Central-Hale game.
A congrats goes out to Hannah Trasser and Katie Peterson of Brookfield Central and Natalie Dillon of Brookfield East. They finished 1-2-3 in the GMC Cross Country Championships last Saturday. The Lady Lancers finished first and the Lady Spartans finished third.
