Bulldogs "Pass" Cougars For Highway B Rivalry Win

Issue Date: September 13, 2017

The Peshtigo Football team's senior class had never beaten their rivals from down County Highway B, the Coleman Cougars, but that all changed with Friday's 34-6 romp in Coleman.

After last week's 14-12 win over Sturgeon Bay, Bulldogs Head Coach Eric Seyler talked about being more efficient in the passing game. They accomplished just that in Friday's matchup, starting in the first quarter.

The first score of the game came via a 37-yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Riley Reif to junior wide receiver Mitchell VanVooren.

The pair doubled down later in the first quarter, connecting on a 69-yard catch and run, giving the Bulldogs a 14-0 lead at half.

"Looking at the film, we were hoping we'd be able to take advantage of them in the passing game," Seyler said, adding that the coaches tried to exploit VanVooren as a matchup with the Coleman defenders.

"His size definitely helped this week too," Seyler added about the 6'4" junior. "That definitely helped when you've got a 6'4" guy going up against 5'8" and 5'9" kids. He was able to go up and get the ball."

VanVooren finished with three catches for 159 yards and the two scores. sophomore Nick Nielson also hauled in five passes for 79 yards.

In the second quarter, it was the Bulldog defense that put some points on the board courtesy of sophomore running back/defensive back Jerod Jandt.

Jandt has been the Bulldogs' leading rusher in every game this season, but perhaps his biggest play of the season came Friday when he scooped up a fumble from Cougars junior Jake Baldwin and returned it 93 yards to the house to extend the Bulldogs lead to 21.

Seyler was happy with his team's defensive performance, though Coleman did get 234 yards rushing, including 107 from junior running back Blake Forner, 54 from junior RB Jacob Zeitler and 44 from Baldwin. The Cougars' junior quarterback, Bryce Karban, only completed 1 of 9 passes for 31 yards.

"We knew that they were probably going to be able to move the ball a little bit," Seyler said. "There were a couple plays where we had some missed tackles but nothing that's cause for alarm."

Coleman would get six back before the end of the half, but a two-point conversion left the Cougars with a 21-6 hole to dig themselves out of, which proved too much.

Jandt added an 8-yard rushing touchdown in the third and Reif tossed a third touchdown pass, this time to junior Max Rauch from 16 yards out, giving the Bulldogs a 34-6 victory on the road against their biggest rival.

Jandt finished with 19 rushes for 64 yards and a score, while the Bulldogs' biggest threat was in the passing game. Reif completed 11 of 14 passes for 264 yards and three touchdowns.

Despite the game being Reif's best statistically in his time as Peshtigo's starting signal-caller, Seyler wouldn't commit to saying the game was Reif's far-and-away best game yet.

"He didn't have some of the stats in some of the other games, passing-wise, but I look at last week and the week before against Sturgeon Bay, he played a heck of a game for us," the fourth-year head coach said. "It's definitely his best stat-wise" but he's done the job we've been asking him to do before this game. We knew it was just going to be a matter of time before we had one of these big games."

Reif is one of nine members of the Bulldogs' senior class, and Seyler has described him as a leader on the team.

Seyler added that getting the win over Coleman was important for the upperclassmen on the team.

"I'm happy to get this win for our seniors," he said.

Marines Shipwrecked by Mustangs

It's not too often one can see a snowball in September, but Friday night when Marinette hosted Little Chute, the Marines' mistakes quickly snowballed.  It took just three plays for the Mustangs to turn a 0-0 game into a 21-0 lead.  From there, Little Chute marched their way to a 35-6 victory.

Little Chute looked to be putting together an opening series drive that would end with a touchdown.  The 11-play, 72-yard drive was quickly halted as Marinette's defense forced a turnover on downs.  Each team then punted once, giving Marinette the ball again.  This is when Little Chute turned the game around in the blink of an eye.  A Marine passed tipped off the receiver's fingertips, into the hands of Mustang Noah Mueller who took it 43 yards on a pick-six.  The extra point gave them a 7-0 lead.  On the ensuing kickoff, the Mustangs elected for a pooch kick, and it paid off.  The ball went right through the hands of the Marinette returner, and Little Chute recovered.  Just four plays later, Charlie Hietpas scored on an 8-yard TD, extending the lead to 14-0.

Marinette turned the ball over on downs on their next drive and on the first play for Little Chute, Connor Mara tossed a 54-yard TD to Jacob Lillge.  Little Chute took their 21-0 lead into the halftime break.

Just two plays into the second half, Little Chute's Bryan Schumacher intercepted a Marinette pass and took it 32 yards for their second pick-six of the game.  On their next offensive possession, the Mustangs scored once more as Mara and Lillge hooked up for a 23-yard touchdown.  This pushed the lead to 35-0.

The Marines avoided a shutout as Matt Eldredge punched in a one-yard TD with just over three and a half minutes left.  Little Chute went on to win 35-6.

Menominee Falls to Fond Du Lac at Home

For the Menominee Maroons football team, a loss at home happens just once in a blue moon. Friday night, that blue moon made an appearance as the Maroons played host to the state-ranked Fond Du Lac Cardinals. Fondy held a narrow 28-20 lead heading into halftime, before shutting the Maroons out in the second half, for a 49-20 victory.

Fondy's fuel came in the form of quarterback Jack Cole, who had himself a game to remember. The Cardinals scored first as Cole found Parker Vaness for a 4-yard touchdown pass and a 7-0 lead. Menominee quickly responded on the following drive. Ethan Mileski darted through the defense for a 47-yard touchdown run, knotting the game at 7-7.

Cole kept the Cardinals rolling. On their next drive, he found Peyton Nutt for a 77-yard bomb touchdown, regaining the lead, 14-7. In typical Menominee Maroon fashion, they were not about to go down without a fight. Menominee chunked their way down the field and Mileski found Jason Janquardt for a 13-yard score to cap off a 10-play drive.

The lead was taken for good by Fondy when Cole dropped back to pass, couldn't find an open receiver, and scrambled into the end zone for an 8-yard TD. A few drives later, cornerback Carson Raddatz intercepted a Mileski pass and took it the distance for a pick-six. This pushed the lead to 28-20.

Menominee trimmed the lead just before halftime. Jacob Rivard punched in a 1-yard touchdown with just under 10 seconds remaining in the half, bringing the score at the break to 28-20.

In the second half, Fond Du Lac seemed to play lights out. With just over a minute remaining in the third quarter, Cole connected with running back Eben Sauer on a 74-yard wheel route that extended the lead to 35-20.

Cole scored two more touchdowns in the fourth quarter, with the second coming from 14 yards out with just 3:22 remaining. This pushed the score to its eventual final, 49-20.

"I felt really good about the first half. I thought we came back after being down 28-14, going down and scored before the half. I thought that was really gritty of us." Menominee coach Joe Noha added, "In the second half, we just couldn't get a stop. They're pretty good, there was just too much there for us to contain for 48 minutes."

Ethan Mileski led the Maroons with 92 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries, Jacob Rivard added 13 yards on 10 carries. Mileski also connected on 10 of 13 passes for 83 yards, a touchdown and an interception.

"We look forward to this opportunity, we don't shy away from any team or game. That's a good team. Our kids, I'm really proud of them, we played really hard and gritty. We never made any excuses and we didn't give up," said Coach Noha of taking on a high quality Fond Du Lac team.

Wausaukee Survives NEW Lutheran by Two

The Wausaukee Rangers had to battle hard to come away with a 22-20 win over visiting Green Bay NEW Lutheran Friday night on their home field.

Wausaukee was first on the board thanks to a Matthew Delfosse 44 yard run but NEW Lutheran answered minutes later when Luke Bukowski hit an open Chip Kindt for a 50 yard passing score. Both teams failed on their two point conversion attempts giving the game a first quarter readout of 6-6.

That knotted up tie would continue into the intermission as the Blazers took an early second quarter lead off a Bukowski 33 yard passing teed to Kindt which was followed by a successful two point conversion, before Wausaukee fired in another score off a 52 yard pass from Delfosse to Hayden Renikow. The Rangers got their two point conversion as well as the team entered the intermission tied 14-14.

It looked as if the Blazers might have had it locked up as the fourth quarter progressed. The Blazers took the lead with five minutes left off a Bennett Reisler five yard goal line breaker but Wausukee was ready to show that they have a pretty good five minute drill as Delfosse broke loose on a 33 yard score. Wausaukee was successful on their two point conversion to give themselves a two point lead with less than a minute and a half to play. After stopping the Blazers the Rangers were victorious 22-20.

For the Rangers Delfosse was three of 11 for 62 yards and one teedee through the air while the Blazers' Bukowski was four of 17 for 118 yards and two teedees.

On the ground Wausaukee's Delfosse also led the way, getting 186 yards and two touchdowns off 28 carries. Bukowski led his teams ground attack with 115 yards on 25 carries.



Titans No Match for Vikings

The Lena/St. Thomas Aquinas Academy Titans traveled up the peninsula Friday to take on the Gibraltar Vikings. Lena/STAA had all they could handle as Gibraltar raced out to a 34-0 lead at halftime.  The Vikings cruised to a 52-22 victory in the second half.

Gibraltar put up three scores in the opening quarter to secure a commanding lead. Two of the three touchdowns came from running back Andras Szakala, one from five yards out and another from 31 yards. In the second quarter, touchdowns from Trevor Reinhardt and Alex Laughlin extended the Viking lead to 34-0.

Lena/STAA got on the board in the second half when Trenton Telford broke free for a 52-yard run to the end zone. At the end of the third, Gibraltar led 46-6. The Titans scored two more times in the fourth quarter as Zack Cops scored on a 7-yard TD. Tyler Stuart added a successful two-point conversion. Stuart then scored his own touchdown from 6 yards out and on the two-point conversion found Jack Farley. 

Trenton Telford led the Titans with 54 rushing yards and a touchdown on just three carries. Tyler Stuart added 43 yards and a TD on 17 rushing attempts. Christian Hornick caught six passes for 83 yards while Jack Farley hauled in four for 89 yards.

Suring Takes Down Florence

In their first matchup as conference opponents, the Suring Eagles traveled to Florence Friday night to take on the Bobcats in a MONLPC-Small matchup. After the first half of play, the teams had battled to a stalemate at 0-0.  Suring found wiggle room after halftime with a score in each of the third and fourth quarters, for a 16-0 win.

The 0-0 deadlock was erased when Suring's Cody Smith ran in a touchdown from 4 yards out.  Josh Reed's two-point conversion gave the Eagles an 8-0 advantage.  It wasn't until the fourth quarter when Suring found paydirt again.  This time it was Reed, hammering his way to a 3-yard TD.  Tyler McDougal found the goal line for the extra two points, extending the lead to the eventual final of 16-0.

Logan Stuart led Suring with 105 yards on 29 carries, while Smith carried it 18 times for 60 yards and a touchdown. 

           

Crivitz Wins Battle of Wolverines

Crivitz took to the road Friday night as they traveled to White Lake/Elcho in a MONLPC matchup between two Wolverine squads. From the first whistle to the final one, Crivitz imposed their will on the home team and took an easy victory, 45-16.

A huge first quarter was turned in by Crivitz as they piled up four touchdowns. Jake Voss started the end-zone party as he took the handoff and raced 16 yards for a touchdown. Voss added a two-point conversion run that put the lead at 8-0. On White Lake/Elcho's first play, Jaden Werner stepped in front of a pass for an interception and took it all the way back for a pick-six. Riley Bemis's extra point quickly gave Crivitz a 15-0 advantage.

White Lake/Elcho was forced to punt on their next possession, handing the ball back to a red-hot Crivitz offense. It took just two plays before Voss broke free for another touchdown, this one from 13 yards out. The lead hastily swelled to 22-0. Crivitz wasn't finished as their next drive last 14 plays and went for 75 yards. Michael Retza capped the drive off by blasting in a 1-yard TD, putting the score at the end of the first quarter to 28-0.

Anthoine Harris got White Lake/Elcho on the board in the second quarter with a 31-yard touchdown run. After a successful two-point conversion, White Lake/Elcho trimmed the lead to 28-8. Crivitz answered back two drives later as once again Voss found running room and ran for a 30-yard TD. The extra point put the score at 35-8; Crivitz led by the same margin at halftime.

Out of the halftime break, Crivitz didn't miss a beat. After forcing White Lake/Elcho into a turnover on downs, Crivitz drove 64 yards in 8 plays. This time, it was the aerial attack that shined for Crivitz as Travis Kudick found Retza for a 37-yard touchdown pass. Voss ran in the two-point conversion that pushed the lead to 42-8.

White Lake/Elcho got on the board once more in the fourth, but it was all Crivitz as they went on to win 45-16. Kudick finished 8 of 12 for 126 yards and a touchdown. Voss paced Crivitz's ground game with 131 yards on 15 carries, good for three TDs. Retza hauled in three catches for 61 yards and a touchdown.
