Redbirds finally topple Hillmen
Placeholder Image
PLATTEVILLE - Darlington junior quarterback Jared Meister passed for two touchdowns to lead the Redbirds to a season-opening 37-21 win over Platteville on Friday night. It marks the first time Darlington has beaten Platteville in a season opener since 2010 when University of Wisconsin wide receiver Alex Erickson starred at quarterback for the Redbirds. The past two seasons, the Redbirds have lost the season opener to the Hillmen and then won 12 straight games to advance to the WIAA Division 6 state championship game at Camp Randall Stadium.
