Blugolds put first gridiron win behind them as they look to get victory number two

Sep. 4—While they are obviously pleased with their Week One home college gridiron victory, the UWEC players and coaches are putting that game in the rearview mirror.

Although the exciting last-minute kick by Dan Zeuli sealed the victory for the Blugolds in their season opener against Concordia-Moorhead, 31-28, at the Carson Park Football Stadium Saturday, there's admittedly much more work to be done to make this 2023 campaign a winning one.
