Prep football: Waupun wins 1st game dramatically behind Harmsen's huge night

By

Waupun 27, New Holstein: The Warriors got their first win of the season in dramatic fashion, stopping a Huskies’ 2-point conversion after they scored with 30 seconds left.

Adrian Harmsen had a monster night for Waupun, amassing 343 yards of total offense and all four Warriors’ scores. He ran 26 times for 175 yards and caught five passes for 168 yards. He had TD runs of 73 and 24 yards, and scoring receptions of 80 and 15, with the latter putting Waupun up 27-20 with just under five minutes to play.

“Just a tremendous effort all around,” Waupun coach Nate Brieske said. “It was the best we’ve played at the point of contact all season. I’m proud of the kids. They’ve worked hard all year and deserved this win.”
