HILBERT - The Hilbert football team had a lead in Saturday afternoon's WIAA Division 7 Level 2 playoff game against Black Hawk/Warren.

But after 8:44 of having a 3-0 lead, the Wolves watched the Warriors score 20 unanswered points, get a 20-3 win, and advance to play Reedsville, at Reedsville, next weekend.

That game is currently shown as scheduled for 7 p.m. Friday, November 5, but this week's game was moved to Saturday at Black Hawk's request.

The best thing about football games in late October is the absence of mosquitoes and jellowjacket bees at football fields.
