Hartford Football Looking To Bounce Back

The Hartford Union High School football team has moved on from their disappointing season opener. Their first game of the season ended with a loss to Waukesha West, 42-14. 

"I think it was a bit of a wake up call," said Orioles' Head Coach John Redders. "Waukesha West had a good game plan, and we had some turnovers that hurt us throughout the game."

A number of positive highlights stood out for Hartford in the loss, including senior linebacker Austin Minor's 12 tackles. Senior running back Cason Boudwine had 12 carries for 69 yards rushing and one touchdown.  

Moving on to their nonconference matchup on Friday, August 25 on the road against Germantown. Both teams are looking for their first win of the season.

"Germantown always has talent, it's a solid program and those kids are well coached, stated Redders. "We had a good week of practice, there was great energy around here. We'll be tested Friday night, and I like the way our kids have responded this week after a disappointing loss last week."

Homestead defeated the Warhawks, 34-14 in their first game of the season. Germantown's talented sophomore quarterback Vinny Inga finished the night with 124 yards rushing, and one touchdown along with 153 yards passing, while completing 10 of 19 and one touchdown. 

Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. for the Orioles and Warhawks high school football game!
