The Lourdes Academy Knights have been selected as the Week 8 Air National Guard Team of the Week following a statewide vote on WSN. The team got a big win over Johnson Creek to pull into a three-way tie for first place in the Trailways-South. The Knights were chosen from a strong group of nominees in Week 8. A total of 4,591 votes were cast, as Lourdes' 2,107 votes edged Mineral Point's 1,905 votes.
Lourdes forced its way into a three-way tie for the lead in the Trailways-Small with one game to play, beating previously undefeated Johnson Creek 42-41 in a thriller Thursday night. It was a back-and-forth game throughout, as the teams traded scores the whole way. The Knights had 177 yards rushing and five touchdowns on the ground, though no single player eclipsed 90 yards in a balanced attack. Quarterback Joshua Bauer threw for 219 yards and a touchdown.
Remember folks, the only way your favorite team can be named Air National Guard Team of the Week is to vote and share the word. Look for the Week 8 nominees to be posted Monday afternoon.
