Madison Edgewood High School’s football team wasted no time setting up its date with Walworth Big Foot in the WIAA Division 3 playoffs.

Seith White fired a 74-yard touchdown pass to Jack Zwettler a mere 36 seconds into the game Friday night, and the Crusaders went on to a 24-0 victory over Lodi in a first-round game on the Breitenbach Stadium artificial turf at Middleton.

That set up Edgewood (8-2), the Badger South runner-up, for a Level 2 game against Rock Valley South champion Big Foot (10-0) next Friday or Saturday at Walworth.

Chris Wells scored on an 80-yard run, and Ben Young had a 1-yard run for Edgewood’s other touchdowns. Jake Dragoo, one of the area’s best place-kickers, had a 40-yard field.

Wells finished with 12 carries for 156 yards to lead Edgewood’s 214-yard ground game.
