HSFB: Middleton's late-season run sets up huge game vs. Memorial

Since losing to Madison Memorial 28-11 in Week 4, the Middleton Cardinals have reeled off six straight victories, setting up one of the most interesting rematches in the state on Friday night in Level 2 of the playoffs.

Middleton coach Jason Pertzborn sees great improvement on his roster, and embraces the physical, hard-nosed mentality of both the offense and defense, spearheaded by big, physical lineman and punctuated by one of the state's top running backs, first-team All-Big 8 honoree Kallion Buckner.

In the first meeting, turnovers doomed Middleton late in a 28-11 loss to Memorial, a game that was 14-11 late. Coach Pertzborn believes turnovers will tell the story of Friday night's match-up.
