BLUGOLDS FINISH LAST HOME GAME ON A WINNING NOTE AND ON A WINNING DAY

Saturday, November 7 - we couldn't have asked for a nicer day to be at a Blugold football game. So Kim and I met Wil and Judy Denson in the parking lot of Carson Park at 11 AM, flashed our season ticket passes to the attendants, and headed for the concession stand to pick up our brats on the way to our seats on the 50 yard line that Wil had so politely been saving for us since 10:30 in the morning. We were lucky enough to sit in front of Jan Satorelli whose son was playing his final home game as a Senior. Jan made the day that much more special as she has a great sense of humor.
Back in the day, UWEC was pretty proud of its Drama Department as well as its Music Department. These days it is the UWEC Marching Band that is the pride of the university. I would venture to say that they are every bit as good as the University of Wisconsin, Madison, marching band. They put on one hell of a half time show and served as the biggest and best cheering section in the entire stadium.
The Blugolds were up against the University of Wisconsin, LaCrosse, and all through the first half it didn't look good for the Blugolds as the Eagles jumped out to a 10 point lead.

By second half, with the help of Kyle Paulson's pinpoint passing and adroit running behind the blocking of running back Satorelli, and with more than one desperation trick play, the Blugolds finally pulled out a victory of 27-17.

It was a great finish to an enjoyable season of college football!
