Rematches brewing as playoffs take shape

--Badger, Big Foot and Elkhorn begin post-season Tuesday

Lakeshore co-champion Lake Geneva Badger secured a conference co-championship in the last game of the regular season with a 14-7 overtime victory over Racine St. Catherine's.

The Badgers, (6-3), open the 2007 WIAA Football Playoffs with a rematch with Fort Atkinson (6-3) Tuesday night, Oct. 23, 2007. Badger was a 42-21 victim of the Blackhawks in a nonconference game three weeks ago.

The Rock Valley Conference may be in for a replay of Thursday's title game, which unbeaten Walworth Big Foot won, 21-15, over five-time defending champion Evansville.

If both win their Division 4 playoff openers Tuesday, they'll meet again Saturday.

Big Foot (9-0), a No. 1 seed, begins the postseason at home Tuesday against St. Francis (5-4). Evansville, a No. 4 seed, hosts Belleville/Albany (4-5).

Southern Lakes co-champions Milton (7-2) and Elkhorn (8-1) are jammed into a power-packed bracket in Division 2. The third-seeded Elks host Badger North runner-up DeForest (8-1), which has lost only to Waunakee, 24-21, while the second-seeded Red Hawks open against Classic Eight runner-up Kettle Moraine (7-2). The winners play each other.

In the upper half of that bracket, top-seeded Waunakee (9-0) hosts Monona Grove (4-5), while Fort Atkinson (6-3) hits the road to face

I checked around, but no radio broadcast that I could find.

Game time is 4 p.m.
