It's Friday!


Badger football at La Vernia at 7:30pm                We hope!

Weather permitting, the Badgers will have a dry and as-scheduled start in La Vernia tonight as they face the powerful Bears.

Both teams are capable of high scoring aerial offense but the Bears show the edge as they are so far undefeated (3-0) and the Badgers are one down at 2-1. The Bears have dominated all their opponents to date but the Badgers, wincing from last week’s loss, want back in the winning column.

We hope you make it to the game, but if you can’t, tune in to 1450AM for the Darrell Brooks/Kenny Murray game broadcast. It’s also on the internet at or at
