After a spectacular regular season that put them atop their conference, followed by two huge playoff wins at home, the Grantsburg Pirates football squad finally ended their 2022 campaign last Friday in Level 3 of the WIAA Division 6 playoffs, where they fell to Stratford by a final score of 27-7.

The contest was quite close until the waning moments of the first half, when Stratford exploded for three scores in just a few minutes, including off the interception of a Pirate pass for paydirt.
