There’s a lot going on at HH Derleth Field tonight as Beaver Dam hosts Janesville Parker for Homecoming in a game you can watch on DailyDodge TV. It’s also Senior Night, and Parent’s Night and a win by the Golden Beavers would clinch a spot in the WIAA playoffs with a winning record in the Badger Large.

In last week’s 38-27 win over Janesville Parker, sophomore Gabe Klatt ran for a school record 398 yards and another school record six touchdowns. Klatt is currently fourth overall all in total rushing yards in Wisconsin with 1430 yards.
Janesville Parker (Overall: 2-5, Badger Large 1-4) picked up their first Badger Large victory last week with a 46-28 win over Watertown. Preston Nelson tossed five touchdown passes in the victory as the Vikings rolled up over 400 yards of total offense. The Vikings only other win of the season came back on August 27th 28-7 over Beloit in non-conference action.
