Routs Rule On M-O Gridirons

Routs and plenty of offense dominated the M-O football fields this past weekend as Peshtigo, Wausaukee, Crivitz and Suring cruised to lopsided wins.

In an early season showdown, the Peshtigo Bulldogs handed Coleman its first conference loss in 3 years with a 42-6 bashing. This game belonged to Peshtigo from start to finish and puts them in the driver’s seat for league honors

The Wausaukee Rangers (1-2, 1-1) notched their initial victory of the season taming the Gillett Tigers 50-20.

This high scoring affair saw coach Jared Deschane’s troops race to a 43 point lead after three frames before Gillett scored twice in the final 12 minutes. Senior back Cole Lewandowski enjoyed a huge game with 3 touchdowns while quarterback Beau DeLaet threw for a pair of scores to Ryan Nystrom.

With junior halfback Ben Fischer finding all kinds of running room, the Crivitz Wolverines evened their M-O mark at 1-1 with a 40-0 whitewash of Lena-STAA. All Fischer did was rush for 268 yards and 4 touchdowns.

The final rout saw Suring remain tied for the top spot after whipping White Lake-Elcho 50-6 in a crossover game with the Northern Lakes Conference. The Eagles soared to a 41-0 edge at intermission and never looked back.

League action on Friday, September 14 finds Peshtigo heading to Crivitz, Suring traveling to Oconto County rival Gillett, Wausaukee at Coleman and Lena-STAA taking the hike to Wild Rose.

Lena-STAA was originally scheduled to play Three Lakes in a crossover game, but with a declining enrollment, the Bluejays decided to play 8-man football instead. Thus Lena-STAA will be credited with a forfeit win in the conference standings and instead will travel to Wild Rose for a non-conference outing.

Big Plays Key 50-20

Wausaukee Victory


Exploding for a season high 7 touchdowns, the Rangers notched their first win of the season with a 50-20 beating of visiting Gillett.

Wausaukee owned a commanding 28-7 halftime spread before tacking on a trio of third quarter scores to put the game away.

Cole Lewandowski keyed the offensive onslaught with a trio of touchdowns and 125 yards rushing while quarterback Beau DeLaet fired scoring passes of 12 and 50 yards to tight end Ryan Nystrom.

Wausaukee also received scoring help from the defense as Mike Wojnicki rambled 75 yards with an interception and Lewandowski returned the second half kickoff 76 yards for points.

Gillett tried using ball control to open the game and marched 48 yards in 13 plays before disaster set in. The disaster came in the form of Wojnicki, who stepped in front of a Bubolz pass and raced 75 yards to paydirt. DeLaet added the conversion run for an early 8-0 edge.

The Rangers would make their way to the end zone two more times before the opening quarter ended. Lewandowski broke free on a 34 yard scoring scamper after a Gillett fumble.

Later in the period, Wausaukee drove 52 yards in 4 plays for a 20-0 spread. Lewandowski busted loose for 22 yards, DeLaet for 14 while Nystrom hauled in a pass for 33 yards to the 1. Following a holding penalty back to the 12, DeLaet and Nystrom hooked up for the score.

Gillett moved to the Ranger 13 to open the second quarter, but were denied points as a fourth down Evan Bubolz to Matt Peterson pass fell incomplete.

Starting deep in their own territory didn’t bother the Rangers. Instead Wausaukee drove the length of the field in 6 plays.

Most of the yardage come via the pass as DeLaet flipped a 12 yarder to Nystrom and 19 to Lewandowski moving the ball to midfield. From there the ball went back to Nystrom, who gathered in a 50 yard scoring toss. DeLaet’s conversion run upped the lead to 28-zip.

With time running out in the half, Gillett finally answered with a 6 play, 72 yard march. Monte Noffke had a hand in two big plays.....a 34 yard completion to the Wausaukee 16 followed by a 13 yard scoring catch. Daniel Torres booted the extra point for a 28-7 halftime score.

Receiving the ball to open up the second half, Lewandowski and company needed just seconds to reach the end zone. The senior speedster fielded the ball on his own 24 and weaved through the Tiger coverage team for the score. DeLaet hit Aaron Schlies for the conversion pass and a 36-7 cushion.

Forcing a punt on Gillett’s next possession, the Rangers marched 73 yards in 8 plays, highlighted by a 43 yard Lewandowski run to the Gillett 20 and a 22 yard pass to Nystrom. Lewandowski capped the drive with a 2 yard run.

An interception and return of 19 yards by Nystrom set up Wausaukee’s final scoring drive of the game. Starting at the Gillett 40, the Rangers ran off 6 plays before scoring. Lewandowski raced through a huge opening for 23 yards while Schlies grabbed a 13 yard pass to the 6. Two plays later DeLaet found the comforts of the end zone and hit Justin Bachmann for the conversion for a 50-7 edge to end period three.

With the game already decided, Gillett drove 63 and 38 yards in the fourth quarter for a pair of Monte Noffke scores on scampers of 10 and 8 yards.

Fischer Runs Wild As

Wolverines Roll 40-0


With his leg cramps healed, Crivitz halfback Ben Fischer was off and running in a 40-0 rout of Lena-STAA Friday. The junior workhorse battered the Titan defense for 268 yards on 19 carries and 4 touchdowns. Fischer reached the end zone on scampers of 9, 35, 31 and 44 yards.

The big performance from Fischer enabled the Wolverines to pile up 480 yards of offense, including 401 rushing on 46 carries.

Jed Nelson added 77 yards on 9 carries, Jake Sawinski 4-29 and Nick Chapman 7-27. Quarterback AJ Garcia connected on 3 of 9 throws for 79 yards and a touchdown.

Held to 131 total yards, the Titans saw Dom Ramirez pick up 80 yards on 23 runs, Blaik Fisher 2-19 and Kiefer Powers 11-18.

We got inside the red zone several times, but came up short or somehow managed to shoot ourselves in the foot. Dominic hurt his shoulder and that took away our passing threat, so we became one dimensional, Titan co-head coach Dale Lange said. Crivitz is a good team...have been waiting to get to this season over the last couple of years. They have had these guys playing together for a couple of years and it shows.

After forcing an opening series punt, the Wolverines marched 80 yards in 8 plays. Fischer gained 33 and 14 yards then watched Garcia hurl a 36 yard strike to Parker DeLosSantos for a first down at the Titan 9. Fischer took it from there and scored at the 7:49 mark.

A fumble recovery by Dominic Basso enabled the Wolverines to take over on their own 46. Points would come 7 plays later. Garcia flipped a 19 yard pass to DeLosSantos to the Titan 34 while a couple of Fischer runs resulted in a first down at the 24. On the next play, Garcia went back to the air and hooked up with Cody Wolf for the touchdown (2:54). Fischer tacked on the conversion run for a 14-0 spread.

With the defense forcing a three and out, Crivitz took advantage of a 13 yard punt to start at the Titan 48. Three plays was all this drive would need....Fischer gained 13 yards on first down, Sam Banaszak none on second before the ball went back to Fischer for a 35 yard run (10:27).

With the Crivitz defense holding on downs, DeLosSanto returned a punt 13 yards to the Titan 47. The Wolverines were about to score again.

The four play drive featured runs of 4 and one yard by Fischer and an incomplete pass.

Guess what happened on the fourth play? A touchdown of course as Fischer bolted 31 yards to the end zone. Basso booted the extra point for a 27-0 spread (6:53).

The Titan defense turned back a Crivitz scoring drive in period three when Joe Jagiello picked off a Garcia pass in the end zone. Three plays lost a yard for the Titans before another punt was required.

Starting at their own 48, Crivitz would quickly up the lead to 34-0 when Fischer scooted 44 yards to the end zone and Basso’s boot split the uprights (9:00).

The final Crivitz score came in the fourth quarter and was set up by a fumble recovery by Micah Sessler deep in Titan territory. Nick Chapman capped the scoring honors with a 5 yard run at the 1:26 mark.

High Flying Eagles

Soar To 50-6 Win


Racing to a 41-0 halftime lead, the high flying Eagles had no trouble notching their third straight win with a 50-6 rout of White Lake-Elcho in a crossover game Friday.

Dillon Kempen scored 3 touchdowns and rushed for 170 yards on 12 carries while quarterback Jay Tienor tossed for two scores during a 93 yard performance.

Making their way into the end zone three times in the first quarter, the Eagles owned a 20-0 edge. Luke Runge snared a 10 yard pass from Tienor for a 7-0 lead then watched Tienor dart into the end zone from 30 yards out. The final teedee of the frame came on a 35 yard pass from Tienor to Kempen.

Kempen continued his end zone landings with scoring runs of 14 and 32 yards in period two and Blake Strehlow blasted in from a yard out for a 41-0 halftime cushion.

The Eagles used a safety along with a 32 yard jaunt by Dan Sweda to stretch the upper hand to 50-zip heading into the final 12 minutes.

The lone score for White Lake-Elcho came on a fourth quarter 14 yard pass from Jaeger Adams to Kris Gallagher.
