Defense, offense and special teams all had standout performances as the Chargers moved into the second round against Verona.
The beauty of Hamilton’s 44-9 win over Middleton on Friday in a WIAA Division 1 Level 1 football playoff game was in its completeness. On offense, Drew Patterson rushed for three second-half scores and more than 200 yards. The defense intercepted four passes. And Kenny Lo was perfect on three first-half field goal attempts. Third-seeded Hamilton (7-2) advanced to face second-seeded Verona (8-1), which defeated Oconomowoc 23-13 on Friday. It took very little time for the host Chargers to assert superiority over Middleton (5-4). Jake Knueppel snagged an interception on the third play of the game at his own 43. “That was the most important piece of the game, getting the turnovers,” said Hamilton coach John Damato. “When you’re in a big game …

The Menomonee Falls Indians are moving on, but not they way you would expect. The varsity soccer team defeated Milwaukee Riverside High School in the first round of the WIAA playoffs Tuesday. The Indians will renew a cross-town rivalry against tenth-seeded Sussex Hamilton High School at 7 p.m. Thursday at Menomonee Falls High School.

The Hamilton Chargers sealed their playoff fate two weeks ago, but here is a rundown of other area teams and what they need to do to get into the WIAA playoffs.

After dominating Germantown in the first round of WIAA football playoffs, the Hamilton Chargers are scheduled to face off against Manitowoc Lincoln on Friday.
