It didn’t come easily for the newly crowned conference champs, though.
Horlick junior quarterback Rickey Neal Jr. gashed the Oak Creek run defense early and often for 115 yards on 16 carries in the first half.
Horlick took a major blow when Neal suffered an injury before the first half concluded.
“When we lost Neal, we lost a little bit of momentum and we just couldn’t look after it in the second half,” Horlick coach Brian Fletcher said. “(Oak Creek) got a big time play right before halftime and we couldn’t rebound from it.”
Vang took advantage again when he caught and ran in a blocked punt caused by senior Alex Hahn for 12 yards at 8:14 left in the game.
