Bay Conference titles for the West DePere Phantoms. Congratulations!
As it has done so many times this season, West De Pere delivered a performance fit for a king Friday.
The unbeaten Phantoms turned Hortonville‘s homecoming game into their crowning achievement. They dominated all three phases — offense, defense and special teams — and put the exclamation point on an unprecedented fifth straight Bay Conference title with a 48-8 victory at Akin Field.
“It’s an indescribable feeling,” West De Pere senior Randy Hill said. “They’re a competitive team, but we practiced hard all week and we earned it.”
Hill was on the receiving end of two clutch touchdown passes from junior Jay Tollefson and also kicked two field goals as the Phantoms (8-0 overall, 7-0 Bay) built a 27-0 halftime lead.
West De Pere’s suffocating defense intercepted three passes, including two by senior linebacker Zak Rottier, and shut out the Polar Bears until the final seconds of the game when both teams had emptied their benches.
A prime example of what it takes to consistently win championships. Considering that West DePere has basically throttled all of its opponents this year, is it safe to assume they are playing with a chip on the shoulder after falling short in last year’s D-3 championship game? For those keeping track the Phantoms have outscored their opponents 373 – 26.
