Milton High’s football team had extra reason to celebrate Friday.

The Red Hawks not only were recognizing a Homecoming game during the WIAA’s alternate fall season, but they scored a pair of first-half touchdowns and made them hold up in a 14-7 victory over visiting rival Stoughton.

“I’ll tell you what, the defense played outstanding,” Milton second-year head coach Rodney Wedig said. “Offensively, we’re still figuring things out. When you rotate guys in like that and you get everybody reps in practice … I feel like I’m not doing as good of a job getting them as fine tuned as I need to be.”

Milton junior safety Jack Campion intercepted two passes and tipped a third that was also intercepted by fellow junior defensive back Gannon Kligora. The first of Campion’s picks he returned 86 yards for a touchdown to give the Red Hawks their 14-0 lead midway through the second quarter.

Kyle Dehnert scored Milton’s first touchdown a couple of minutes into the game after Luke Hessenauer blocked a punt.

The 14 first-half points proved to be enough given Milton’s stout defense.
