Wisconsin Lutheran 28
CMH 10


This was an incredible game. CMH came out and was pretty much moving the ball at will up and down the field in the first half. Wisco's offense came out in the 2nd half though, made some adjustments, and allowed the running backs to start pulling off 4-6 yards at a time. During the entire second half, I'd wager to say that CMH only had possession for all of 5 minutes.

It was a heck of a game and my hat goes off to CMH. They are an excellent team.

I feel bad for Hartford...everytime they get to Level 3, they end up having to play someone like Arrowhead or Homestead. That'd be awesome if they could pull it off.

You're looking at it wrong. Arrowhead or Homestead had to play Hartford; just a matter of perspective and attitude. I've never felt sorry for anyone's draw. You give it your best shot and when when the dust settles you either move on or go home. At the end of the season, only 7 teams are going home with a win anyway.

This is true also. To be the best you have to beat the best. Still, it'd be nice to catch a break every now and then. []

True, but I wouldn't mind taking a shot at a top ranked team early on. Imagine if Oshkosh West had hung on and upset Arrowhead today and then Hartford beat West and went on to win the title. By not playing the consenus #1 ranked team in the state, people would always question whether they could have defeated Arrowhead. Now we get to find out. You also have to factor in injuries. The farther you go, the more nicked up you can get. Play'em when your the healthiest and level 3 gives you a full week to heal/prepare.

Not overally familier with Hartford's style. I see the stats and roster online and they don't blow one away, so what makes them so dominating in the Little ten?
I've seen them play in the past and they are always pretty good but no individual stats this season impress me. The backs are smaller and both have around 600 which is good but not
great. The leading recievers are only around 25 catches as well. I'm not down on them just asking the question thats all. I'm sure the defense is strong with the big linebacker but are there any other playmakers or do they just all play well in the scheme. Do they play a power set on offense?
South ran well on AHS with their 2 backs but they were big. The Hartford line will be bigger than the D line of AHS unless they change things up. I am assumming they are physical but not overally huge. The size of AHS offensive line may wear down Hartford if their d-line is small. However, they have in the past struggled with smaller lines like West who are fast. AHS blew away KM and West this year but scores mean little at this stage. I was at the AHS-OW game last weekend and have seen AHS play several games this season. The defense does give up yards but a team has to punch it in because the AHS offense is tough to stop for an entire game. AHS shoots themselves in the feet a lot with fumbles and penalties but to this point have overcome them.
Last question. I see the youth teams in Hartford always seem to struggle to put out good teams but it seems the varsity team is always good. Anyone have any inclination why that is?
Just curious.

Their stats might be a little skewed because they started the year trying to run the spread for the first time ever. I heard that after the loss to Wisco, they switched back to their normal power style of football for the most part.

That is true
Hartford did switch back after the loss to Wisco


do they run any spread or is it completely back to the past with all power running and a few passes mixed in??
