Coleman Clips Crivitz 36-14 In Finale; Wausaukee Wins Big

Karban Shines As Cougars Earn Runner-Up SpotWith senior running back Dexter Karban busting through for 173 yards rushing and two touchdowns, the Coleman Cougars claimed the runner-up spot in the final M-O Conference standings with a 36-14 win over Crivitz. Karban found the comforts of the end zone on scampers of 66 and 31 yards as the Cougars ground attack battered the Wolverine defense for 322 of their 365 total yards.

Elsewhere in M-O play, Peshtigo notched the league title with a 21-0 win over Suring, Wausaukee whipped Lena-STAA 46-16 and Gillett topped Laona-Wabeno 37-18 in a crossover clash.

The loss for Lena-STAA marked the final conference game for the Titans as they will play 8-man football next season.

Coleman Claims Second

Place With 36-14 Victory


The Coleman Cougars closed out the regular season on a very strong note Friday at home as they absorbed every punch a tough Crivitz gang could throw at them, wrapping up second place in the M-O with a convincing 36-14 win over the Wolverines.

Overall, I was pleased with the team 's effort and play.  Defensively, we kept Fischer from having an explosive play for a touchdown.  We knew going into the game he was going to get yards and have some longer runs--but we kept him from having the momentum changing play.  Offensively, we need to take care of the ball better, but it was nice to see the team not only respond to Crivitz 's scoring drives, but to have time consuming drives.  I thought all of our backs ran hard and helped with the team 's success.  Dexter had the two long TD runs, but his runs that got first downs were more important in the end, Coleman coach Jeff Bronson said.

The Cougars got on the scoreboard first thanks to a methodical drive down the field, highlighted by runs from Trevor Seewald, who would eventually punch it in from eight yards away to lead his team to an 8-0 advantage. Blake Margis fired a pass to Branden Pagel for the two-point conversion.

The Cougars pressed their advantage with their next possession, one that featured power running from the likes of Seewald and Marc Lansin. Once inside the red zone, Margis was able to hook up with Austin Malecki on a nice 20 yard scoring pass that gave Coleman a 16-0 advantage with plenty of time to play in the second frame.

This was right about the time Crivitz 's offense decided to come to life as quarterback Colton Lange led his team into the end zone on its next possession with a 67 yard pass to Micah Sessler. The scoring toss and a two-point conversion run by Ben Fischer cut the deficit to 16-8.

The Cougars weren 't about to let Crivitz think it could get back into this one though. On their very next possession, Coleman lit the scoreboard again when Dexter Karban busted loose for a 66-yard run that ended up in the end zone. Seewald added the conversion run for a 24-8 halftime spread.

Crivitz closed within 24-14 in the third quarter on a 7 yard gallop by Fischer before Coleman iced the win with a pair of fourth period touchdowns.

Blake Margis scored from a yard out while Karban sealed the win with a 31 yard teedee scamper.

The game was closer than the score indicates. The two stops inside the red-zone really were the difference. If the team doesn 't make 3-5 plays on those two possessions, the game is different, Bronson added.

Coleman got 173 yards on the ground from Karban over 21 carries while Seewald rushed 13 times for 88 yards.

The Cougar defense did a masterful job of slowing down the always-dangerous rushing effort of Crivitz 's Ben Fischer, who ran the ball 19 times for 106 yards on the evening for one touchdown.

When watching the film, 5-10 plays really were the difference.  A block held longer or a pass that had a little more air under it could have easily changed the outcome.  For the rematch, we again know that we have our hands full.  Crivitz is physical upfront and have a playmaker in Sessler in the back half.  Offensively, Crivitz is more than Fischer, though you have to start your defensive plan on slowing him down as best as possible.  But the FB, TE, and WR can all hurt you and we will have to do a much better job keeping the QB in the pocket than the last game.  With the way they try to rip the ball out on defense, our backs are going to have to ensure that the ball is secured, Bronson concluded.

Rangers Roll Past

Lena-STAA 46-16


The Wausaukee Rangers closed out the 2013 football season on a winning note with a 46-16 whipping of visiting Lena-STAA. Coach Jared Deschane’s troops built up a comfortable 40-zip halftime lead and never looked back.

Sparking the Rangers to the lopsided win was senior quarterback Beau DeLaet, who had a hand in 4 touchdowns and totaled 174 yards of offense. DeLaet burned the Titans defense with a 13 yard toss to Aaron Schlies then landed in the end zone following runs of 37, 3 and 17 yards. DeLaet gained 144 yards on the ground in just 9 carries for a plush 16 yard average.

Fullback Russell Smith added plenty of help with 16 rushes for 135 yards and scoring jaunts of 3 and 4 yards while Schlies hauled in 2 passes for 22 yards and a touchdown.

While Wausaukee had its way up and down the field, Lena-STAA netted 266 yards and turned the ball over 3 times. Quarterbacks Kiefer Powers (1-5) and Blaik Fisher (1-4) combined for 78 yards passing. On the ground Powers picked up 97 yards rushing on 11 carries, Fisher 20-49 and Matt Marquardt 4-38.

Wausaukee lit up the scoreboard six times in the opening 24 minutes. After forcing the Titans to punt following a 7 play drive to midfield, Wausaukee took over at its own 35. Six plays later the Rangers were on the board as DeLaet and Schlies hooked up from 13 yards out (6:14). Smith tore off 35 yards on three runs while DeLaet added a 9 yard scamper and Schlies 8 yards.

Coming up with another defensive stand on the Titans second drive, Wausaukee moved 75 yards on two runs by DeLaet. First down saw DeLaet race through the Titan defense for 48 yards to the 27. A pair of penalties backed the Rangers up to the 37 but DeLaet bailed his mates out with a scoring run on the next play (3:03).

Lena-STAA gave the Rangers a gift score on the next series for a 20-0 lead. Starting at the 33, the Titans ended up back at their own 3 as a result of a bad snap over Fisher’s head on the punt .

From the 3 Wausaukee gave the ball to DeLaet who scooted into the end zone at the 1:21 mark.

Wausaukee duplicated its scoring output in period two with 20 more points. Two of the teedees were set up by turnovers in a span of 59 seconds.

A fumble recovery by Austin Dunlap gave the Rangers a first down at the Titan 32. Smith tallied runs of 15 and 25 before powering in from 3 yards out with 8:40 remaining in the half.

An interception and return of 16 yards by Smith enabled the Rangers to pry open a 34-0 lead. Setting up shop at the Titan 4, Smith did the scoring honors on first down with 7:41 left in the half. For the second time in the game, DeLaet hooked up with Landen Wallace on the conversion pass.

With the Titan offense continuing to stall, Wausaukee took over at its own 29. Seven plays later, the Rangers were back in the end zone as DeLaet found an opening and raced 17 yards for the score (1:04). Smith had a trio of runs totaling 23 yards, DeLaet carried twice for 30 yards and then hit Schlies on a 9 yard completion to the 49.

Wausaukee continued its scoring exploits into the third frame as Brennen Gabriel returned the kickoff 83 yards just 13 seconds into the quarter for a 46-0 spread.

With the mercy clock ticking away, the Titans tallied a pair of fourth quarter touchdowns. Powers capped an 8 play 74 yard drive, that was kept alive by a Fisher fumble recovery following a punt. Getting a new set of downs at their own 40, the Titans headed goalward as Marquardt peeled off 12 yards to the Ranger 48 before Powers scored the teedee. Fisher and Bernie Beyer teamed up on the conversion toss for a 46-8 deficit with 6:29 left in period four.

Getting the ball back after taking over on downs, the Titans marched 57 yards in 6 plays. Powers gained 8 yards on first down and Fisher 21 to the 28 on second. Continuing to mix things up, Marquardt ripped off a 23 yard scamper to the 5 before scoring from 4 yards out. Powers tacked on the conversion run for that 46-16 final score.

Gillett Closes Out Season

With 37-18 Crossover Win

The Gillett Tigers played some smart, hard-nosed football Friday night and closed out their regular season strong with a 37-18 win over Laona-Wabeno.

The Rebels, clearly paying attention to scouting reports, decided to throw triple-team attention at receiver Dylan Roberts, who, along with help from quarterback Alex Zeitler, has been shredding defenses all season long. This defensive attention being paid to the aerial attack led to the Tigers getting a career night from Monte Noffke, who decimated the Laona-Wabeno defense for 193 yards on 19 carries and 4 touchdowns. Noffke scored on runs of 6 and 4 yards in period two while adding scoring scampers of 65 and 12 yards in the fourth quarter.

Zeitler and Roberts did, of course, manage to hook up for one score, a one-yard completion for six points in the third quarter.

Gillett trailed 6-0 in the first quarter when Rebel back Ryan Brauer blasted in from 9 yards out (6:37). The Tigers and Noffke would answer with touchdown runs of 6 yards at the 8:04 mark of period two and 4 yards with 1:07 left.

In the third quarter, Gillett upped the lead to 23-6 on a pass from Zeitler to Roberts while Noffke busted loose on a 65 yard run for a 30-6 lead in the fourth frame (8:22).

Laona-Wabeno wasn’t done as John Houts snagged a 22 yard pass from Craig Mentz and Brauer returned an interception 99 yards for a 30-18 deficit with 5:22 remaining.

With the lead trimmed, Gillett sealed the win when Noffke scored from 12 yards out with 1:01 left.

Defensively for the Tigers, newcomer Leeland Kahler forced all three Rebel turnovers on the night, recovering a pair of fumbles and intercepting a pass in the end zone to thwart a Rebel drive late in the first half.

"(Noffke) continues to get better each week and I am really looking forward to what he will bring to the table next season," said Gillett head coach Rick Kamps. "With the wet field conditions, it wasn 't the best for throwing, but Alex Zeitler continued to impress those in attendance as he used pin-point accuracy in the second quarter to find Noffke deep on a couple of occasions. Alex continues to get better each week and the sky is the limit with what he will bring to the table next season."
