Union Grove High School’s football team put the damper on Lake Geneva Badger’s title hopes Friday night.


The host Broncos broke away from a 14-14 halftime tie for a 35-14 victory over Badger that handed the Southern Lakes championship to Waterford.


Waterford went to 6-0 in the conference with a 47-12 win over Elkhorn, while the Badgers fell to 4-2, spoiling their chance to catch the Wolverines in a sending-ending showdown at Lake Geneva next week.


Badger held a 14-0 first-quarter lead, but it was all Union Grove the rest of the way as the Broncos (4-2) moved into a second-place tie.


Dan Vyvan gained 171 on 29 carries and scored touchdowns on runs of 11 and 48 yards to spark Union Grove.


Badger got out of the gate with touchdown runs of 53 and 60 yards from John Leibforth and Kyle Poplar respectively.
