Catholic Memorial shuts down Pewaukee

Matt Hubley has had a busy week. Next week will be busy, too.

The Catholic Memorial two-way standout, who committed to play defense for the University of Wisconsin on Tuesday, helped his Crusaders shut down undefeated Pewaukee on Friday, and he also scored a pair of second-half touchdowns as CMH advanced in the WIAA Division 3 football playoffs, 21-0.

"It was hectic, but it was fun," Hubley said. "I enjoyed every minute of it, but I wanted to concentrate on this game. My focus is our opponent each week ... We played great today up front."

The Pirates, which came in with a 9-0 record, simply never got anything going, never moving within the CMH 35-yard line. Pewaukee's defense also kept the Crusaders from mounting long drives, but the Crusaders struck on big plays, including Hubley's runs of 30 and 27 yards in the fourth quarter for scores.

"The offensive line was giving me a great push, and we were able to bounce it to the outside, and it was wide open," Hubley said.

CMH only led by a 6-0 score at halftime, procured when Andre Bodden caught a pass from Pat White, broke three tackles and burst his way for a 55-yard score early in the second quarter. The Pirates blocked the extra point.

"We knew it was going to be a grind," Bodden said. "We came into this expecting a close game and the defense had to step up. We knew there wasn't going to be a lot of scoring."

The Pirates had fewer than 120 yards of total offense in the game.

"At halftime we were a little star-struck, not because of anything they were doing, but this is the biggest, most physical team we played all year and they certainly broguht it," said first-year Pewaukee coach Justin Friske. "Our guys were on our heels a little bit. They beat us up front pretty well and they have some excellent football players and an excellent coaching staff. ... We have a very good football team, I just think tonight we got beaten by a better one."

The teams have become familiar with each other. Last year, the Pirates topped Catholic Memorial in a Level 1 playoff game, 42-32, and two years ago the Crusaders won a tense 14-13 Level 1 battle en route to the state championship game. All three contests took place at Pewaukee.

"We're probably going to end up playing them in the future, too," Hubley said. "I would definitely consider it a rivalry now."

Catholic Memorial next faces top-seeded Wisconsin Lutheran in Level 3.
