Blugolds looking to end the season on a high note

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Eau Claire (WQOW) — After two big wins over UW-Platteville and Oshkosh in the span of three weeks, UW-Eau Claire football has put themselves in a position to finish the season at .500.

But the task is far from easy, as the Blugolds welcome in 6-3 UW-La Crosse Saturday at Carson Park for the regular season finale. The last time these two met their, UWEC held on for a 20-14 win in 2016. For the senior class, a win over the second-place Eagles would give them a satisfying ending, compared to where they started as freshman 0-10. They could also leave the program trending in the right direction, and give the team momentum heading into the off-season.

“It would be the perfect culmination, you know the perfect way to end,” says senior quarterback Scott Procter. “A lot of these senior last game and it would put a nice cap on this season, that I think we’ve had a lot of improvement.”

Finishing with five wins in 2018, would surpass the senior class’s total by two from the last three seasons.

“A great stepping stone for next year to give guys great confidence to go out on a win like that, and just keep building up into the off-season,” senior defensive back Drew Hurley says. “Guys realizing what needs to be done to have a season like that, but also not be satisfied with it at 5-5. We can continue to build this thing up.”

The game can be seen on WQOW Saturday afternoon. Pre-game coverage starts at 2 P.M., with the kick-off scheduled for 2:30 P.M.
