A sprint to the endzone in the final minutes brings Muskego to near even against Lake Geneva, but fall short going for two.
The Muskego Warriors kept the Lake Geneva Badgers close all game long, but fell in the in Level 1 playoffs 28-27. A 75-yard punt return by David Kucharski with 1:13 left in the game drew the Warriors within 1, but a 2-point conversion failed bringing the season to an end. The Warriors' Adam Regini struck first in the 1st quarter on a 30-yard pass play, but the Badgers would answer within 25 seconds with a score of their own.

While most high school football teams learned their playoff fates Friday, Muskego's exciting Friday night win brings them closer, but still fighting for a postseason berth
With just one week remaining in the regular season, almost every high school football team in the Milwaukee Patch area knows its postseason fate. Almost every team. Muskego is among a handful of teams whose destiny rests in their contest this coming Friday. They join Racine Horlick, Greendale, Martin Luther and Brookfield Academy, all of which can lock up playoff berths with victories Friday, but losses would either eliminate them from contention or significantly hurt their chances. A win for Muskego against Waukesha South would clinch a playoff berth in their first season in the Classic 8 conference. In the third edition of Patch’s Postseason Possibilities, we take another look at each high school team in the Milwaukee Patch area and …

Trailing nearly all of the game, Muskego comes from behind against Kettle Moraine to win on homecoming night, and keep playoff hopes alive.
Despite being on the short end of the scoring for much of the night, the Muskego Warriors weren't about to give up a homecoming game to the Kettle Moraine Lasers. A 42-yard TD run by Kettle Moraine about 2 1/2 minutes into the first quarter put the Lasers ahead 7-0 and Muskego responded but missed the extra point to trail by one. Another 32-yard run (extra point missed) and field goal on ensuing possessions by Kettle Moraine would pad their lead to 16-6 by halftime. However, it would be Muskego's turn at the scoreboard in the second half, and two goal-line pushes into the endzone would give the Warriors their first lead of the night of 22-16 with only 18 seconds left in the game. Muskego's 295 yards of offense were typically taken up in…

While Muskego isn't assured a post season berth, two wins are all that stand between them and a first-time playoff appearance in the Classic 8.
Hey, Warrior fans, want to know if Muskego will be playing in this year’s WIAA postseason? Want to know what they need to get in? Well, welcome to the second edition of Patch’s Postseason Possibilities, where we take a look at each high school team in the Milwaukee Patch area and breakdown its playoff chances. Records and scenarios are updated as of 11 a.m. Oct. 1. Look for an update to include this weekend’s game by noon Oct. 8. (To get in, a team needs four or more league wins.) In for sure Waukesha West (3-3, 3-2): Even after losing to Catholic Memorial, 17-0, Friday, we won’t move the Wolverines out of this category, only because they finish against winless Waukesha North on Oct. 12.

Strong stats on the ground translate into commanding win for the Muskego Warriors over Waukesha North
With 21 first downs and 441 rushing yards recorded in their game Friday night against the Waukesha North Stars, the Muskego Warriors put up some of their best numbers of the year. The effort translated into a commanding 44-21 victory, and another step closer to a playoff appearance in the Classic 8 conference. Conversely, the North Stars continued to struggle, with 227 total yards of offense in the game, and a late game safety that would add to Muskego's already firm lead. The Warriors need to win their next two games to secure a berth in post season play, and looked like they would take no game for granted. Quarterback Tyler Roy would not provide an airshow, with only 18 yards passing on the night, but he would rack up 253 yards rushing, …

Special teams troubles contribute to a Memorial win over Muskego
The rains from earlier in the day and a damp evening perhaps contributed to problems Friday night as a close struggle between the Muskego Warriors and Catholic Memorial Crusaders ended up in a 35-18 CMH win. The contest had been fairly tight in the first half, but a muffed kickoff return that slipped through the Warrior's hands was recovered by CMH, resulting in a touchdown in the third quarter. In addition, an extra point field goal and two attempts by the Warriors for two-point conversions after touchdowns failed. CMH's defense also shut the Warriors down in the second half, and the 18-13 lead Muskego had then would not prove to be enough. Tyler Thomka was the Warriors scoring leader with two touchdowns, and quarterback David Roy made a …
