"That really was the game right there for us," Taylor said, crediting Stuart for the decision to go for it.. "When I go out there and say "let's punt it' and I've got Logan going "I'll get it,' I'm like, "I trust you,' and that's the thing. He's earned it. He's sacrificed four years and he's been playing at a high level for four years. I kind of figured it might go just because of his determination, they brought everyone up and he bulled his way through. He did that last week too."
Early in the second half, he punched in from a couple yards out to bring the score to 18-0.
He would finish with 20 rushing attempts for 158 yards and three touchdowns. Suring quarterback Jayden Genniesse attempted just eight passes in the game, completing four for 46 yards. Coach Taylor thought senior leadership made a difference in the game. "They stepped up when they needed."

Simon Gard scored for Lena/STAA on a six-yard run as time expired in the fourth quarter to keep the game from a shutout and give the team its first points of the new campaign.
"We played a lot better this week than we did last week. Things improved a lot," Lange said. "There's still a lot of stuff because of this offense that needs to be clicking and jiving. We've got stuff to clean up but its all correctable."
Lambrecht rushed 11 times for 52 yards. Suring is now 2-0. Lena/STAA is 0-2.

"They come off the bus, they're ready to hit. They live in the weight room, we don't," Peshtigo coach Jeff Bayerl said. "It's a myriad of everything at once and we got punched in the mouth right away. They won the line of scrimmage, we got pushed around tonight."
By halftime, the game was 46-0, with two interception returns for touchdowns and two touchdown runs in the second quarter. It was done and dusted at that point, with Bonduel pulling back and scoring just once in the second half.
Bayerl stressed that the team needs to fix some gaps, but conference play is still in sight and the team's goal has always been to make the playoffs, something that he believes is an attainable goal. "We are at full strength next week, we're going to move", said Bayerl. "We have to win two more conference games to make the playoffs, that's always been the goal."
After a somewhat disappointing 13-6 win over Coleman last week, Bonduel is feeling good.
"Our kids, they've got a tough mindset. They play hard, they practice hard and they play for each other, which is really nice," Bonduel coach James Westrich said. "They're all celebrating for each other, they're all blocking for each other. That's why they're getting touchdowns, because they're happy their guy got it, so they're getting downfield and making a block and stuff like that, so I really like the team attitude."
They sure got down the field and made their blocks Friday, as the team put up 318 yards on the ground and 80 through the air.
