The D.C. Everest Evergreens have been selected as the Level 1 WSN Team of the Week following a statewide vote on WSN. The team went on the road to pull off a playoff upset over Appleton East in a shootout. The Evergreens were chosen from a strong group of nominees in Level 1. A total of 7,197 votes were cast, as Everest's 2,976 votes edged Coleman's 2,166 votes.
D.C. Everest managed to sneak into the playoffs with a 4-4 conference record, and the Evergreens raced out to a 27-0 lead on third-seeded Appleton East to open the postseason. Up 41-13 at halftime, Everest would have to hold on by the seat of its pants, as East scored four, second-half touchdowns, but it wasn't enough, as D.C. Everest held on for a 47-41 victory. Delton Zuleger rushed for 171 yards and three touchdowns, while Orion Boe would add three touchdowns as well for the victorious Evergreens, who take on Appleton North in Level 2.
Remember folks, the only way your favorite team can be named WSN Team of the Week is to vote and share the word. Look for the Level 2 nominees to be posted Monday afternoon.
