Thursday night was a great night for area home teams on the high school gridiron. Green Bay East, West De Pere, and Ashwaubenon all tallied lopsided victories in their first contests of the 2013 campaign.
Green Bay East stopped Green Bay West just short of the end zone early in the fourth quarter, preserving a 20-0 shutout of their cross-town rival in the 108th meeting all-time, one of our nation’s longest standing head-to-head competitions.
West De Pere jumped all over visiting Antigo 14-0 after one, 40-0 at the half, both their offense and defense equally impressive in a 47-0 blanking.
Green Bay Preble got on the board first, but Ashwaubenon answered with 40 unanswered en route to an impressive christening of their new turf, 40-7…which brings us to the WIXX Preps Pick of the week:
Equally as impressive as the team's collective performance on the field was the field itself - Goelz Field, Ashwaubenon, WI. This week’s WIXX Preps Pick is an actual pic, snapped by our own Mark Daniels. Check out this eye candy:
