Say this for Messwood’s first-round football playoff matchup — it’ll be easy on the gas tank.
Messwood routed Living Word Lutheran 56-14 in its final game of the regular season, according to WisSports.net. Its only loss was a 43-40 defeat to unbeaten Lake Country Lutheran. Messwood’s lower seed was likely due to playing in the Midwest Classic Conference, populated with very small private schools.
The Blue Dukes were co-champions of the North Shore Conference, with only a one-point defeat against Germantown scarring their resume. They allowed only 36 points in eight games, according to WisSports.net, and scored at least 40 points four times.
The winner of the Messwood/Whitefish Bay game takes on the winner of South Milwaukee and Brookfield Central.
