Every game is a test.
Some tests, of course, greater than others. Some look like cake walks, others look like … well, the opposite of a cake walk. What is a cake walk?
The opposite comes at 7 p.m. today when Viterbo hosts Ashford, which has won five of six and is 13-5 on the season.
Saturday, against the crosstown rival, the V-Hawks may have underestimated UW-La Crosse.

A couple blowouts went down last night … but not because of Oktoberfest.
Below are the high school football statistical leaders through Week 5 in Wisconsin and Week 4 in Minnesota.
Leading the way in rushing are a pair backs on 9-man football teams in Caleb Happel of Spring Grove and Niko Anderson from Lanesboro with around 700 yards and double-digit touchdowns.
The top 11-man rusher is Wabasha-Kellogg's Austin Baab, who is averaging 9 yards per carry.
Five points, 3 minutes, 67 yards, 3,000 fans and the 88th meeting for one ark - no problem.
Call them the odd couple: a 5-foot-10, 155-pound quarterback named Mitchell Schreiner and his 230-pound running back, Calvin Wright.
The two led Logan High School’s football team to a ridiculous fourth-quarter, winning drive – capped off by a Wright 11-yard touchdown with 37 seconds remaining - to take the Ark of Victory in the intra-city rivalry over Central, 30-20.
