Johnson Interception Sparks Storm

Kewaunee used a number of big plays to beat Cedar Grove-Belgium 47-12 in a WIAA Division 5 playoff game in Cedar Grove on Friday Night.  Caleb Johnson had another outstanding game as he threw a pair of touchdown passes (46 yards to Jesse Kleiman and 19 yards to Peter Metzler), added an 8 yard td run and had three interceptions, returning two for touchdowns.  Kewaunee was holding a 7-6 lead midway through the second quarter when Johnson intercepted a pass and raced 99 yards for a 14-6 lead.  Kewaunee would add a touchdown with less than a minute to play in the half for a 21-6 lead and Johnson’s second INT for TD on the second play of the second half had the Storm well on their way to victory.  Dylan Saxby and Austin Richard added rushing touchdowns for Kewaunee (11-1).  Greg Wenzel rushed for 2 td’s for the Rockets (10-2).  The Storm will play either Lancaster or Racine Saint Catherine’s next weekend.  The Flying Arrows and Angels play at 4:00 today in Lancaster.
