BREAKING: Badger, Big Foot roll on in style

by Mike Ramczyk

September 29, 2011

It's getting ugly, really ugly.

Opponents are still searching for answers to the offensive firepower of the Badger and Big Foot football teams. And games are getting out of hand early and often.

Badger and Big Foot are steamrolling opponents at will, and Friday night's homecoming games were no exception.

Both squads enjoyed large halftime leads en route to two easy conference victories.

Badger smacked rival Elkhorn upside the helmet, reeling off 28 first-half points on its way to a 41-14 victory.

With the win, the Badgers are now 6-1 overall and 5-0 in the Southern Lakes Conference.

Chris Walker gained 120 yards on six carries with three touchdowns, highlighted by a late 52-yarder which finally put the Elks away.

Eddy Ruzga added 81 yards and two touchdowns.

As part of homecoming festivities, a fireworks display bursted in the sky after the win, a fitting end to an explosive offensive night.

Badger now travels to Union Grove (1-6) before returning home Oct. 14 against Waterford (6-1).

It was a night for the history books Friday in Walworth.

Senior running back Kenny Walker scored three touchdowns for 18 total points, and the Chiefs cruised in Rock Valley South action.

Walker needed two points to surpass brother Michael for the school record for points scored in the regular season. Michael set his mark in the 2009 Division 4 state title season.

Kenny scored on runs of 51 and 35 and caught a 32-yard pass for another touchdown. Big Foot racked up 35 first-quarter points and took a 55-7 lead into the half.

Big Foot is now 7-0 on the season and showing its title form from two years ago.

Kenny finished with six carries for 183 yards, and junior Mason Dixon added nine carries for 137 yards and two touchdowns.

Quarterback Jake Wedig also put together a nice game, completing seven of nine passes for 112 yards and two scores, including a six-yarder to brother Gus.

The Chiefs face a tough test next Friday at Rock Valley North foe East Troy (6-1, 4-1). The game could be its toughest test until late in the postseason.
