After beating Whitnall, Cudahy and St. Francis – three teams with a combined 1-8 conference record – the Hawks play host to undefeated South Milwaukee (5-0, 3-0) in a battle between the division’s only teams without a league loss.
Game time is 7 p.m.
The Rockets are led by the two-headed attack of running back Ian Pribyl and quarterback Justin Oliden. Pribyl has a team-high 630 rushing yards and eight touchdowns, while Oliden has passed for 582 yards and three TDs.
Across town, the Whitnall Falcons (1-4, 1-2) hope to rebound from a tough loss to the Rockets a week ago when they take on another top foe, the Brown Deer Falcons, on homecoming night.
Brown Deer is 4-1 overall, its only loss coming to South Milwaukee two weeks ago.
Running back Zach Baun is already closing in on a 1,000-yard season. Through five weeks, he’s averaging 190 yards per game and has 950 with 15 touchdowns on the season.
Kickoff is 7 p.m.
