These two teams are so evenly matched despite their different styles, playoff game could again easily come down to the final possession, before or after regulation.
Let’s look back: Less than two weeks ago, a sensational high school football game between Greendale and Wauwatosa West ended in dramatic fashion. It was Oct. 5 in Greendale. As the game progressed, the Tosa West Trojans controlled the tempo. Penalties and turnovers slowed Greendale. In the fourth quarter, Greendale came alive. They staged two impressive scoring drives. With under a minute on the clock they pushed the game into overtime with the score knotted 30-30. Tosa West scored on their first OT possession, and then picked off a pass to end Greendale’s threat, winning 37-30. If you missed it, or if you wanted to see a rematch – it’s on! Wauwatosa West, seeded fourth, and Greendale, seeded fifth, will play in the WIAA state playoffs …

Gov. Scott Walker has on his desk new legislation that would require young athletes suspected of having a head injury to be removed from the activity until he or she can be evaluated by a health care provider.
Randee Drew saw stars as he dropped to one knee. Moments before, the 190-pound Northern Illinois cornerback attempted to tackle a 270-pound Wisconsin Badgers tight end in a game at Camp Randall Stadium during the 2002 season. "I whacked him with everything I had," said Drew, a member of the Nicolet High School Athletic Hall of Fame. "I was kind of woozy for about two plays," he added during a recent interview. "I said, 'Please Lord, don't throw the ball over here,' because I wasn't all there." Given the hard-hitting nature of football, there is not much that can be done to prevent concussions, according to Drew. However, Drew said that once an athlete is dazed by a big hit, trainers, coaches and parents need to proper care is given to …

The Trojans end the season with a 13-12 record, after losing to the Whitefish Bay Blue Dukes 54-37 Thursday night.
Wauwatosa West's hopes of advancing in the WIAA sectionals were dashed Thursday night by a talented Whitefish Bay team. The Blue Dukes came out strong right out of the gate with a score of 20-6 after the first quarter. The scoring was a little more balanced through the remaining three quarters, leaving the Blue Dukes with a 54-37 win to advance to the sectional finals round of sectionals Saturday. Tosa West's leading scorers were Latasha Harmon, with 11 points, Jessica Pike with eight points and Ashley Lindstrom with seven points. Now, the Dukes tip off against New Berlin Eisenhower at 1 p.m. Saturday afternoon at Waukesha South. The winner of that game goes to the Division 2 state tournament.

West has a new coach and East prepares to move forward without one of its top returning stars.
High school boys basketball teams can begin practice today, and East and West both have some unsettled business heading into the season. The Trojans have a new coach in Chad Stelse following the controversial dismissal of Mike Landisch, who then succumbed to cancer this fall. West advanced to the sectional semifinal last year, losing to eventual state champion Whitefish Bay. The Trojans finished 15-11 but lost a chunk of the team to graduation. West opens its season Nov. 25 against Racine Park in the Fort Healthcare Shootout in Fort Atkinson. East was 15-8 a year ago, including 11-3 in the Greater Metro Conference, just a game behind league champion Marquette. While the Red Raiders have a healthy collection of seniors, it appears Darrell …

Tosa East takes on Germantown in Friday's semifinal at 5 p.m. Marquette or Catholic Memorial await.
After 29 seasons and nearly 800 victories, Wauwatosa East boys volleyball coach John Simon takes most things in stride. But getting to the WIAA state tournament is always a treat. This year’s trip — which begins Friday with a 5 p.m. quarterfinal against Germantown at Wisconsin Lutheran College — is no different. This is the sixth consecutive trip for the Red Raiders, who won it all in 2006. “This team is as good as any other team that’s made it,” said Simon. “Possibly better because we return so many players.” East’s overall record is 27-10, and the Red Raiders beat Broookfield East and then Shorewood in the sectional to get to state. Max Kilpin, a 6-foot-6 senior, is a first-team all-state middle hitter who will be a high jumper in …

The Red Raiders hoist the WIAA Sectional Championship trophy, ending the Greyhounds' season Thursday night.
With a trip to the WIAA boys volleyball state tournament on the line, the Wauwatosa Red Raiders met the Shorewood Greyhounds Thursday night in sectional finals at Brookfield East High School. The scrappy Greyhounds would go up early, but battling back was Tosa East taking a close first game after being down 25-24 late. Shorewood would take a second game 25-19 to tie it at a game apiece. Tosa East would respond by taking a third game 25-16, but it all came down to a fourth game, which see-sawed. Down by several points late, the Greyhounds battled back to tie it at 25 but couldn’t pull out the upset. The Red Raiders would secure the trip to the state tournament and WIAA Sectional Championship trophy with a 30-28 win in game four. Your final …

One long touchdown run provides the only points for the Trojans.
Over the course of a football season every team is going to have one or two of those “tough” games. These are not necessarily games where they get blown out, but rather games where they just had a rough go of it. Wauwatosa West had one of those games Friday. The Trojans dropped their home opener tonight to the Cudahy Packers 23-7. The loss puts the Trojans record at 1-2 and 0-1 in the Woodland Conference. The Trojans just struggled overall, with blown assignments defensively and a lack of offensive rhythym. Wauwatosa West coach Matt Good was not pleased with his team's overall performance and said it's time to go back to square one. “Go back to the drawing board, get back to work on Monday, watch film, and try to correct our mistakes” said…
