Green Bay in search of their first win versus Wisconsin Rapids
Ashwaubenon, WI – The Green Bay Booyah head to historic Witter Field in Wisconsin Rapids today as they try to snap a two-game losing skid.
So far, this year, the Rafters are the top dog inside of the Wisconsin-Illinois pod.

For Green Bay, they are tied with Rockford for second place in the East, three games back of Fond du Lac for first.
