The Eau Claire North Huskies have been selected as the Week 4 WSN Football Team of the Week following a statewide vote on WSN. The team ended what had been the state's longest active conference losing streak in a big way, shutting out Superior. The Huskies were chosen from a strong group of nominees in Week 4. A total of 9,108 votes were cast, as Eau Claire North's 4,042 votes edged Crandon's 3,624 votes.
Eau Claire North ended a 46-game conference losing streak that had dated to September of 2014, downing Superior 21-0 on Friday night at Carson Park. Senior Jack Kein had a nice day, completing five-of-eight passes for 40 passes and leading the team with 172 yards rushing and a touchdown on 20 carries. The Huskies' defense allowed 206 yards of offense but kept Superior out of the end zone.
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 Week 5 nominees to be posted Monday afternoon.
