MADISON, Wis. (WBAY) - The Wrightstown Tigers came up short in their football team’s first trip to state since 2011, falling to Aquinas 32-13 as the Blugolds complete a 3-peat.

Wrightstown started well, recovering a fumble on the very first play of the game. Aiden Humphries recovered the ball, and then scored the first touchdown moments later to make it 7-0.

QB Trevor Vande Hey they scored to make it 13-0 Wrightstown in the first quarter.

But Wrightstown could not keep that magic going, as Aquinas found its footing and rattled off 32 points en route to the WIAA Division 5 State Championship.

“The wheels fell off,” said coach Steve Klister.. “Aquinas is a very good team. We knew it was going to be a battle in the trenches, that we’d have a hard time moving the ball.”

“I don’t really know,” Trevor Vande Hey said. “We just kind of lost our momentum that we needed. It just didn’t go our way after that.”

“It hurts right now but I’m awfully proud of them, it was a great season,” Klister said.
