151 Trophy

Chilton trailed only briefly at 7-6, otherwise it was all Tigers and Cayden Popp as they returned to action on the gridiron Friday night with an impressive 44-21 Eastern Wisconsin Conference football win at Valders on a wet, windy and chilly evening. With the win goes the Battle of Hwy. 151 trophy.

Popp ran for two touchdowns and caught two others for scores as the game went on a running clock for just a bit in the third quarter before the Vikings cut into their deficit.

“This is a fun game,” says Chilton coach Mike Arendt, who once served as an assistant in the Valders program.

“Our offense was great. We put 44 points on the board and had a couple other scores called back. Defensively, we have a few things to tidy up.”

Chilton moves to 2-1, just a game behind conference leading Brillion who trounced formerly unbeaten Kohler/Sheboygan Lutheran/Sheboygan Christian, 52-22, Friday night.

Chilton was scheduled to play Brillion last Friday, but the COVID situation caused postponement.

“We hope to somehow make that up,” adds Arendt whose team will finally play a home game next Friday against Kiel.
