A pattern developed in the opening half of the West Allis Hale-West Allis Central football rivalry contest - the Bulldogs kept making mistakes, and the Huskies kept taking advantage of them. In that half, Central had a blocked punt that led to a touchdown, an interception returned by Hale's Tyler Millikin for a touchdown, another blocked punt for a touchdown and a fumble that led to a touchdown. That series of miscues helped give the Huskies a 29-0 advantage early in the second quarter, and they coasted from there to a 36-6 victory before a large and enthusiastic crowd.
