KAUKAUNA — The Kaukauna Ghosts open the 2022 WIAA playoffs on the road Friday, traveling to Milwaukee Rufus King for a Level 1 WIAA playoff game.

Kaukauna, the 6-seed in its Division 2 bracket, finished the season 4-3 in the Fox Valley Association, and 5-4 overall.

Milwaukee King, a 3-seed, finished 6-1 in the Milwaukee City-Richardson conference, and 7-2 overall.

The game kicks off at 6 p.m. at South Stadium in Milwaukee, 928 W. Becher Ave. (Out of town fans have confused this with South Milwaukee High School or South Division High School in the past. So please make sure to use the address.)

Tickets for the game may ONLY be purchased on the Hometown Fan App. Or, you can use this link https://mps.hometownticketing.com/embed/all There will be no cash sales at the gate.

The host school says they will have a large security presence and families should feel safe parking and walking to the stadium. The neighborhood around the stadium is safe.

For your families traveling, there are a ton of good restaurants just east of the freeway (Third Ward/Fifth Ward/Bay View Neighborhoods).

Plus a lot of good food trucks and little family restaurants around the stadium as well. For the adventurous, check out Koz’s Mini Bowl before the game.


Paid Partnership

The game will not be live streamed.
