Beaver Dam at Watertown football game moved from Friday to Saturday

The Beaver Dam high school football team will have to wait an extra 24 hours to take the field this week, a delay due to referee availability. 

Off to a 2-1 start and looking to make it 3-1 and 2-0 in Badger Large Conference play, the Golden Beavers were scheduled to play on the road at Watertown on Friday night but instead will head down Highway 26 to take on the Goslings at 7 p.m. Saturday night. 

A variety of factors have led to there being a shortage of officials, not just in football but other sports as well, and there weren't officials available to referee on Friday night, according to Beaver Dam High School Athletic Director Melissa Gehring. 

So the old Little Ten Conference rivals who are once again in the same league — the Badger Large for football and the Badger East for other sports — will tee it up a day later than originally scheduled. 

Watertown and Beaver Dam both moved to the Badger Conference following the the 2016-17 school year, although the Goslings landed in the then-Badger South and the Golden Beavers in the Badger North. 

Now, they're back in the same division and will square off as league rivals on the gridiron for the first time since 2016, a game won by Watertown, 42-21 at Beaver Dam.

Watertown is coming off a 34-28 loss to Janesville Craig in both teams' Badger Large opener and is 1-2 overall on the fall, while Beaver Dam is coming off a 14-6 win over Milton in the two squads' league debut and is 2-1 on the year, having also won big a week earlier, 35-8 over Sauk Prairie.
