WAUSAU– Looking for their first win of the season, Wausau West hosted Appleton East on Friday evening at Thom Field, and while the Warriors found themselves within a touchdown at 24-17 with 1:30 remaining in the game, East held on and escaped with the win.
The Warriors enjoyed a 7-0 lead to start the game, and took a 14-10 advantage into halftime.
East took its first lead of the game in the third quarter on a touchdown, then added another touchdown with four minutes to go in the fourth quarter. The score stood at 24-10 at that juncture.
West put together a drive that resulted in a field goal to pull within seven points at 24-17, and that’s how the game ended.
West falls to 0-3 on the season and will travel to Oshkosh West next week.
