Monona Grove still standing in WIAA Football playoffs

The Monona Grove Silver Eagles football team keeps surprising the WIAA Tournament bracket.

MG is a #5 seed, but has advanced to a Level 4 Division Two game Friday night against Homestead at Oconomowoc.

The Silver Eagles have defeated the number one, three and four seeds in their bracket on the way to the state semifinals.

“We all talk about it a lot actually as a team like that’s one of our main drives is that we’re thought of as lower,” said MG Senior Casey McCoskey.

“We’re the underdogs and we kinda like that because we’re playing from behind and we just have to come and show people that a 5 seed doesn’t define us.”

The Silver Eagles won the WIAA State championship in 2013 and hope to add another gold trophy this season.
