Hudson-Appleton North football playoff to be played in Chippewa Falls

The Raider football team’s WIAA Level 3 playoff game against Appleton North will be played this Saturday, Nov. 9, at 1 p.m. in Chippewa Falls.

The Raiders advanced to Level 3 with a 38-22 victory over Green Bay Preble last Saturday in Stevens Point while Appleton North moved on with a 34-14 win over Bay Port.
