Police cited a Sussex Hamilton student for disorderly conduct after running on the field and planting a Hamilton flag at midfield before the football game between the Indians and the Chargers.
UPDATE: Menomonee Falls Police Capt. Mark Waters said Tuesday that the 17-year-old Sussex fan who stormed the field was cited with disorderly conduct. The teen received a $429 citation for his pre-game prank. According to police, the teen said he "got caught up in the school rivalry" and he acted alone, and the idea was his. Whether you call it the “Highway 74 Rivalry," “The Seven-Mile Showdown," or the “Border Battle”, it is clear that Menomonee Falls and Sussex Hamilton high schools are entrenched rivals. And as in any rivalry, there are plenty of pranks and trash talking between the participants. But school officials and police believe one student took things too far Friday evening. Just seconds after the National Anthem at Menomonee …

Menomonee Falls and Sussex Hamilton met in the annual gridiron border battle under the lights of Schumann Stadium Friday. The Indians dished the Chargers their first loss of the season.
The New York Mets and the New York Yankees had the “Subway Series”. The Brewers and the Cubs have the “I-94 Rivalry." The Menomonee Falls Indians and the Sussex Hamilton Chargers have the “Highway 74” rivalry. And the 2012 installment of the border battle did not disappoint. The Indians brought the fourth-ranked Chargers' undefeated season to an end under the lights at Schumann Stadium Friday. The Indians (3-2, 3-1 Greater Metro) put an end to the Chargers' (4-1, 3-1 Greater Metro) perfect season with a dose of hard-hitting defense, and tough running. From the start, it was clear the energy and significance of the match up wasn't lost on the boys in burgundy and grey. Beyond the three turnovers, the Chargers will likely leave Schumann …

Gov. Scott Walker has on his desk new legislation that would require young athletes suspected of having a head injury to be removed from the activity until he or she can be evaluated by a health care provider.
Randee Drew saw stars as he dropped to one knee. Moments before, the 190-pound Northern Illinois cornerback attempted to tackle a 270-pound Wisconsin Badgers tight end in a game at Camp Randall Stadium during the 2002 season. "I whacked him with everything I had," said Drew, a member of the Nicolet High School Athletic Hall of Fame. "I was kind of woozy for about two plays," he added during a recent interview. "I said, 'Please Lord, don't throw the ball over here,' because I wasn't all there." Given the hard-hitting nature of football, there is not much that can be done to prevent concussions, according to Drew. However, Drew said that once an athlete is dazed by a big hit, trainers, coaches and parents need to proper care is given to …
