Day 2 WIAA State Football Recap

The 2012 WIAA State Football Championships wrapped up at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison.  Following are the recaps from the three state championship games.

Division 1

Senior quarterback Brady Kelliher threw three touchdown passes to lead top-ranked Hartland Arrowhead to a 35-14 win over Sun Prairie in the Division 1 State Title game.

It’s the first state football title since 2007 for the Warhawks, who ran the table this season at 13-0. 

Arrowhead built a 35-0 lead at halftime, thanks to the arm of QB Brady Kelliher.  Kelliher completed 15 of his 22 pass attempts for 222 yards, just 2-yards shy of the Division 1 championship mark.

Sr. Dom Todarello finished with 143 rushing and receiving yards to help Arrowhead win its fifth state championship.

Division 2

Mequon Homestead blanked three-time defending champion Waunakee
14-0 to win the WIAA Division 2 state title game. 

Homestead shut down a Waunakee offense that had been averaging 40.3 points a game during the season.

Waunakee (12-1) was looking to set a new WIAA record with its 49th straight victory but fell just short.  They were shutout for the first time since November of 2005.

Division 3

Senior tailback Matt Hubley rushed for 199 yards and two touchdowns as Catholic Memorial rolled to a 42-7 win over the Waupaca Comets to capture the WIAA Division 3 Championship game at Camp Randall Stadium.

Hubley, who is verbally committed to play college football for the Badgers, averaged 10.5 yards per carry.  One of his two touchdown runs came from 70-yards.

Senior quarterback Pat White added 179 yards passing and three touchdowns, giving the Crusaders their first WIAA title.

Waupaca fell to 2-3 in state championship games after being held to just 7-points, which was a season low.
