Bulldogs Hold Off Clippers for First Win

The Peshtigo Bulldogs have entered the win column following a 14-12 victory over the Sturgeon Bay Clippers on Friday, Sept. 1.

The Bulldogs were the first and last to score in the first quarter as a reverse by sophomore Nick Nielson set sophomore Jerod Jandt up for a 16-yard score on the ground.

Jandt would finish the game with 23 carries for 99 yards and a touchdown, while putting the ball on the ground for a fumble once.

In the second quarter, the Clippers got on the board via a 29-yard field goal by senior Brady Wodack, but the Bulldogs would strike back before the end of the half as senior quarterback Riley Rief took the ball to the house for a 52-yard touchdown run.

Rief ran 11 times for 62 yards, while completing 2 of 8 passes for 51 yards. Bulldogs Head Coach Eric Seyler said some of the issues in the passing game were with giving Reif time to get rid of the ball, however.

"The biggest thing this past week is we don't have much time to throw the ball so it's kind of hard," Seyler said. "Those are things we're working on and always trying to improve on."

The Clippers got themselves within a score in the third quarter with a 10-yard pass from senior quarterback Ethan Knipfer to senior wide receiver Jared Van Bramer, leaving the score at 14-10.

Knipfer completed 14 of 18 passes, but only for 94 yards, as the Bulldogs did a good job of closing down on receivers and not allowing any big plays.

"We did a good job rallying. The last two games before, we were giving up a lot of short passes that turned into long gains so we worked on making sure we were rallying to the ball," Seyler said. "We did a good job not allowing them to take the deep ball" There wasn't much deep so they had to take the underneath stuff."

The Bulldogs' defense held tough in the fourth, with the only scoring coming via an intentional safety the Bulldogs took with less than 30 seconds left in the game.

The Bulldogs travel to Coleman next week to square off with the Cougars, familiar foes, who are coming off a 12-8 win over Northland Pines. Although the Cougars (1-2) are having a down year, Seyler still expects a tough matchup.

"It's going to be a traditional Peshtigo-Coleman matchup," Seyler said. "There's going to be hard hits, there's going to be a lot of small plays that could determine the outcome of the game.

"We're going to fight it out in a phonebooth and the last team standing when the clock goes off will kind of be the winner. That's just the way it is. That's the way it's been since I came here. All the games against Coleman have been close," Seyler said.

Coleman Chops Down Northland Pines

The Coleman Cougars traveled to Northland Pines Friday night to take on the Northland Pines Eagles, cutting them down by way of a 12-8 verdict.

Coleman was first on the board but it took a quarter to do so as Jacob Zeitler finished off a drive with a six yard teedee run.

Blake Forner also got a chance to register some points in the fourth quarter where he plugged out a five yard run for six additional points. Both Coleman touchdowns were followed by unsuccessful two point conversions giving the Cougars a 12 point readout.

Northland Pines posted a teedee in the fourth as well as Tucker Wittkopf broke loose a 44 yard reception while Gunnar Schifmann posted the 2 point conversion.

Forner led the ground attack with 107 yards on 16 carries while Bryce Karban passed for 38 yards on four completions.

Cardinals Dive Bomb Eagles

The Crandon Cardinals showed no mercy to the Suring Eagles Friday night as they blasted the guys from Suring 65-14.

Crandon quickly jumped ahead as Justin McIntosh posted the games first teedee on a 14 yard run. Riley Wagner pushed in the 2 point conversion. McIntosh recorded a short while later with a 15 yard teedee run.

The second quarter turned into a slobber knocker as the Cardinals found their way to 35 more points.

Suring got their first touchdown of the night in the second. Josh Reed found Mitchell Stegeman open on a 78 yard catch and run for the score. Tyler McDougal pulled in the two point conversion pass to give the game a 51-8 score.

Suring got one more touchdown before the end of regulation as Jayden Geniesse completed a pass to Dequez Sepulveda for the 63 yard touchdown.

Logan Stuart led the ground attack for Suring with 30 yards on nine carries while Crandon's McIntosh piled up 67 yards on 10 attempts for three teedees.

Through the air Reed gave his Eagles 110 yards and one touchdown on five completions. Geniesse completed four of his five passes for 107 yards and one teedee. As a whole the Suring's QB's amassed four interceptions.

Wolverines Bury Bluejays

The Crivitz Wolverines had no issues dealing with the Three Lakes Bluejays Thursday night as they cruised their way to a 50-6 win.

For the Wolverines almost every drive produced points. Out of nine offensive drives of the game seven needed in touchdowns.

During the first quarter Crivitz's Travis Kudick found an open Charlie Johnsen for the 15 yard teedee. Kudick then carried in the two point conversion for the early 8-0 lead.

Next to score was Jakob Voss, who did so on a 40 yard run that ended in pay dirt.

The second quarter saw Voss make another visit to the end zone, scoring his second touchdown from one yard out. Voss finished the first half with a third touchdown, capping off a drive with a three yard goal line breaker.

The third quarter saw Voss continue to find success in the redzone as he plowed his way into the end zone from two yards out.

Crivitz started switching in some of their bench over the third as Hunter Witmus, in for Kudick, dropping back, completing a 25 yard passing touchdown to Tyler Shubert.

Three Lakes got on the board late in the third with a Brad Sowinski six yard rushing score, before Crivitz capped off the night with a Ezekiel Lawrence 53 yard run for the final score of the game.

Kudick ended the night five of ten for 75 yards and one teed. Voss cruised his way to 167 yards on 14 carries while Dawson Andrist reeled in two passes for 35 yards.

Northern Elite Tops Florence

The Northern Elite Predators took down the Florence Bobcats 54-21 Thursday night in Niagara.

The game started with a battle as both teams exited the first frame with 14 points each.

From the second quarter on the Predators began building a head of steam as they plugged out 20 second quarter points. Another 13 in the third and seven in the fourth gave the Predators more than needed to put this one away.

Alex Hagerty posted the first touchdown from two yards out followed by Landon Kaldor on a 20 yard teed run.

The second quarter scoring was started with a Dumke to Kaldor 60 yards passing touchdown and was followed by a returned fumble for a touchdown by Alex Hagerty.

Dumke pitched into the defensive effort in the second with a 60 yard pick-six.

Kaldor cruised into the end zone from forty yards out in the third, along with Dumke who capped off a drive with a three yard burst into the endzone.

The final fourth quarter score was registered by Kaldor on a 30 yard rush.

Kaldor finished the night with 60 passing yards off one attempt.

Brent Dumke piled up 146 yards and two touchdowns on the ground off 15 carries while Kaldor amassed 122 yards and three teed off 10 carries.

Kaldor led the receiving corps with 60 yards and one touchdown.

Wausaukee Breaks into Eight Man With Strong Showing

The Wausaukee Rangers are showing they have the skills to pay the bills in their new eight man football conference as they out did the Oneida Nation Thunderhawks 44-28.

Matthew Delfosse got things rolling for the Rangers in the second as he snuck into the end zone from one yard out. He increased the lead a short while later, completing a pass to Tyler Gruszynski from 15 yards out. The pair found each other again before the end of the half, this time on a 12 yard catch and run.

Quentin Unferth added an early third quarter teed on an explosive 63 yard sprint to the end zone followed by Delfosse on a 18 yard keeper that found pay dirt.

Taking the helm in the next score was Hayden Renikow who found an open Delfosse for an eight yard teedee.

Wausaukee ended the night with 392 total yards to Oneida's 305. Of those yards 260 were gained on the ground for the Rangers.

Through the air Delfosse was five of 11 for 116 yards and two teedees. On the ground Delfosse amassed 110 yards on 21 carries for three touchdowns while Unferth chipped in 109 yards on seven carries for one teedee.

Titans Can't Cage Tigers

The Gillett Tigers invaded Lena as they took on the Lena/St. Thomas Aquinas Academy Titans in an MONLPC 8-man matchup. Scoring twice in each of the first three quarters, Gillett went on to win 38-6, behind 221 rushing yards.

Bo Krueger opened the scoring for Gillett with a 20-yard run that displayed his balance. After absorbing a hit in the backfield, Kruegerput a hand on the turf, regained his balance and sprinted to the end zone for a TD.

Lena/STAA attempted to answer back, but a fumble quickly ended the drive. On the very next play, Brock Herzog found Adam Anderson on a deep post for a 53-yard touchdown and a 12-0 lead at the end of the first quarter.

In the second quarter, Krueger pounded in a pair of touchdowns. First, Krueger punched in a three-yard touchdown. Seven minutes of game-time later, Krueger extended the Gillett lead to 24-0 with a two-yard TD run. The Tigers took that 24-0 lead into the halftime break.

Coming out of halftime, Gillett drove the ball down the field. Once again, Krueger made the Titan defense pay. This time, he took the handoff from the 13-yardline and was nearly stopped at about the eight, however with his power running and help from the offensive line, slowly Krueger inched his way into the end zone. Gillett took a 32-0 lead after Herzog's two-point run.

Later in the third, Anderson was the beneficiary once more of a Herzog pass that found pay dirt for a 31-yard pitch and catch, extending the lead to 38-0.

Lena/STAA got on the board early in the fourth quarter as Zack Cops ran in a three-yard TD with 11:12 on the clock. This was all the Titans could muster as Gillett took the win 38-6.

Krueger paced the Tigers' run game with 99 yards on 14 carries, leading to four TDs. Herzog completed 3 of 6 passes for 93 yards and two touchdowns. Anderson made good of his opportunities, hauling in just two catches, that went for 84 yards and two TDs.

Simon Gard completed 5 of 18 passes for the Titans for 95 yards and an interception. Cops ran the ball 7 times for 76 yards while Jack Farley grabbed two passes for 49 yards.

"We played a very tough and good Gillett team, they were bigger than us. We had several good plays and started to move the ball but shot ourselves in the foot with, turn overs, miss handled ball exchanges and penalties." Titan coach Dale Lange added, "We need to get this cleaned up for next week's game at Gibraltar. We are fairly young and inexperienced in several positions, so it is a learning curve."
