It’s been a long time since Green Bay West won a varsity football game. The streak of 45 consecutive losses finally came to an end last night as the Wildcats pulled out a thrilling 30-29 win over long-time rival Green Bay East. It was the 109th meeting between the two teams.
The two teams traded the lead several times. West led 22-21 entering the fourth quarter, but East running back Noah Delzer’s 7-yard TD run put East back in front 29-22. It was the third TD for Delzer.
East was driving for another score but coughed up the football with West recovering.
Facing a 3rd and 19 at the East 24, Wildcats quarterback Brett Dejardin found Logan Cropsey wide open in the end zone for a touchdown. The Wildcats converted the 2-point conversion to go up 30-29. West held on from there for a win.
Despite the loss, the Red Devils still lead the all-time series 57-49-3.
