Football has had a 3 and 1 record for the 2022 season. Their only loss came from Onalaska in a tight 14-13 game. 

After playing Arcadia on September 9, West Salem beat Arcadia 35-0. At halftime, there was a 30 minute delay due to lightning and then another one for more lightning. 

According to coach Jehn, during the pause in play, the Arcadia coaches came over to the Panther bench and said that they had too many of their players hurt. Jehn said “Arcadia wanted to end the game at halftime.” 

“The WIAA rules are that if at halftime someone wants to end the game they can come to an agreement and end the game,” says coach Jehn

West Salem coaches fought against only having 2 points and Arcadia eventually agreed to the score of 35-0. 

The next Panther football game will be on September 16th, at 7 p.m. home against Altoona. The theme will be Adam Sandler, so make sure you wear your baggy pants and oversized shirts.
