Sep. 25—LAKE GENEVA — Kegan Huber and Cole Berghorn teamed up to run the Lake Geneva Badger football team to a WIAA state playoff berth Friday night.

Huber rushed for 90 yards, and his touchdown throw was his only pass completion in two attempts. The Badgers racked up 420 yards rushing overall.

Berghorn broke loose for touchdown runs of 20 and 55 yards in the first half and closed Badger's scoring with a 2-yard run late in the third quarter.

The Demons (2-4, 2-2) got on the scoreboard when Drew Weis broke a 41-yard touchdown run with 4 minutes, 9 seconds remaining.
