The Badger Challenge pits teams from the Badger North and South, based on the standings at the halfway point of league play.
The first-place game between Oregon and Beaver Dam is scheduled for 7:20 p.m. Saturday at Beaver Dam.
Monona Grove, tied for eighth in Division 2 in the AP poll, and Oregon played at 7:15 p.m. Tuesday at Oregon in a rescheduled game, postponed from Friday following last week’s snow and freezing rain storm.
