Wedig, in his first year as Milton’s head coach, led the Red Hawks to a 28-21 victory in a double overtime thriller against Stoughton on Sept. 27. With the win, Milton starts the season 6-0 for the first time since 2005 and takes control of the Badger-South Conference. The Red Hawks look to remain perfect on the season as they face another tough test, hosting the conference’s leader in rushing yards, Monroe High School, on Oct. 4.
Wedig knew playing against Stoughton would be challenging, and early in the game the Vikings were giving the Red Hawks all they could handle.
“They had us on our heels almost the whole game,” Wedig said. “Our defense had some great red zone stops to keep us in the game. Offensively we had to change some things at halftime because they were really taking it to us. We had a great stop on the three-yard line after the half, and then went on a sixteen-play, 97-yard drive that got us back into the game. Then our defense was able to force a turnover and we scored late in the fourth quarter, and then were able to survive during overtime.”
