Suring Clips Coleman, Now 5-0

Combining a stingy defense with a big play offense, the unbeaten Suring Eagles continue to share the M-O Conference football lead with Peshtigo.

Suring moved to 5-0 overall and 4-0 in league play following a 20-6 beating of visiting Coleman Friday night. The victory not only keeps Suring in first place, but qualifies them for post-season play.

The Eagles used the big play ability of Jay Tienor and Dillon Kempen to break the game open with a pair of second half scores against the two-time defending champions. Tienor accounted for 153 total yards and had a hand in two scores while Kempen rushed for 113 yards and a touchdown.

Elsewhere in the M-O loop, the Lena-STAA Titans blanked Gillett 13-0 for their first win “on the field”. Earlier this season, the Titans were awarded a forfeit victory over Three Lakes in a crossover clash.

The final game on tap saw Crivitz fall to visiting Crandon 28-22 in overtime as the Wolverines playoff hopes took a hit.

M-O outings on Friday, September 28 find Northern Elite visiting Peshtigo, Suring takes the hike to Wausaukee, Crivitz heads to Gillett and Lena-STAA travels to Coleman.

Suring Stays Unbeaten,

Powers Past Coleman


With their defense keeping Coleman in check, Suring stayed perfect on the season with a 20-6 conference win Friday night. The Eagles limited Coleman to 148 total yards and just one score to earn the victory.

The usually explosive Coleman offense never got untracked and spun its wheels to average just 3.5 yards per play.

“Very similar feeling at the end of this game as the Peshtigo game. We couldn’t get anything on the ground and our lack of speed hurt us,” Coleman coach Jeff Bronson said.

The best Coleman could offer was the running of Dexter Karban for 98 yards over 19 carries. Marc Lansin was second with 6 rushes for 21 yards, Trevor Seewald 7-18 and Mason Mergener 4-11.

“We had opportunities in the game, but whether turnovers, penalties or blocking errors prevented us from getting any momentum. Defensively we had people in the correct place, we just could not finish. Suring made plays when they had opportunities and we didn’t,” Bronson added. “We made too many errors to defeat a determined and experienced team from Suring.”

Seewald returned the opening kickoff 33 yards to the 46, setting up Coleman’s first possession. A pair of 8 yard runs by Karban and Marc Lansin put the ball at the Suring 30 before a holding penalty pushed the Cougars back to the 35. On the next play Seewald lost control of the ball with Suring recovering at its own 47.

The Eagles didn’t waste much time as six plays produced points. After gaining 4 yards on three downs, Suring pulled off a fake punt with Tienor racing to the 24. Two plays later Tienor hooked up with Cody Christensen from 20 yards out for the score (6:07). Blake Strehlow booted the extra point for a 7-0 lead.

That’s how the half ended as Coleman punted 3 times, saw Seewald get picked off by Dan Sweda before taking a knee with time running out.

Suring on the other hand moved the ball but couldn’t put points on the board. The Eagles wasted a golden scoring opportunity when Strehlow returned a punt to the Coleman 27. Suring moved to the six yard line only to see Kempen get stopped short of a first down with 7:24 left in the half.

With time ticking under 2 1/2 minutes, the Eagles saw Tienor flip a 37 yard pass to Kempen to the Coleman 19 before getting turned away. A holding penalty followed by a couple of incomplete passes ruined any hopes of scoring.

Following a halftime chat with Bronson, the Cougars closed the deficit to 7-6 when Karban scooted in from 7 yards out. The conversion attempt failed.

Suring answered before the quarter expired as the quick stepping Tienor raced through the Coleman defense for a 46 yard scoring jaunt. Strehlow’s kick upped the lead to 14-6.

Suring added a big insurance touchdown in the fourth quarter when Kempen found a gap and rambled 31 yards to the end zone.

The Cougars will try to get back on track with a Friday night home contest against the Lena-STAA Titans. “Lena-STAA has the characteristics that we struggle with...size and speed. We need a good week of practice and continue to need to work on basics. We have to be ready for another team determined to take some frustration out on us. A big key for us is to enure we block #77 (Sam Beschta) on every play,” Bronson remarked.

Ramirez Shines As

Titan Edge Gillett

For 13-0 Victory


After three scoreless quarters, the Titans used a pair of touchdowns by senior running back Dom Ramirez to turn back visiting Gillett 13-0 Friday night in a homecoming contest at Lena. Ramirez hit paydirt on runs of 1 and 28 yards while finishing the game with 58 yards rushing on 24 carries.

“We knew it was going to be a close game and the team that could get some breaks had the advantage. Both of the teams had several players injured or out for medical reasons. I was glad that we never gave up and had some of our freshmen and sophomores step up,” Titan co-head coach Dale Lange said.

In the first quarter, Lena-STAA threatened twice but came up empty. The Titans put together a 9 play drive to reach the Gillett 8. Troubles set in as Ramirez was dropped for losses of 12 and 5 yards on third and fourth down by Kyle Kershek and Clint Long to thwart the march.

After holding Gillett on downs, the Titans saw Kiefer Powers block a fourth down punt with Garrett Nikolai recovering at the 18 with 1:43 left in the frame. Again the Titans couldn’t punch the ball into the end zone as a pair of holding penalties along with Ramirez getting stopped on fourth down at the 7 ruined the march.

Lena-STAA finally snapped the scoreless contest with 4:31 left thanks to a 44 yard punt return by Ramirez to the Gillett 1.

Ramirez blasted over on the next play for the teedee, but was denied the end zone on the conversion run.

Protecting that slim lead, the Titans added an insurance score with 1:25 left. A fourth down sack by Blaik Fisher dropped quarterback Evan Bubolz for an 8 yard loss, giving Lena-STAA the ball at the Gillett 35.

Four plays later Ramirez broke free on a 28 yard scoring jaunt to secure the victory. Fisher tacked on the conversion kick for that 13-0 final score.

“We blocked a punt and had a couple of interceptions, but couldn’t punch it in when we needed to. Finally late in the fourth quarter, we returned a punt and later caught the Gillett defense off-guard and punched it in,” Lange added.

Both teams struggled offensively as the Titans totaled 180 yards and Gillett 129.

Lena-STAA did most of its damage on the ground with 152 yards rushing on 39 carries, sparked by Ramirez with 58 rushing. Ramirez wasn’t as effective through the air hitting 3 of 10 throws for 28 passing.

Gillett could only muster up 33 yards over 29 rushes as Matt Peterson gained 31 yards on 20 carries. Quarterback Evan Bubolz connected on 6 of 18 passes for 63 yards and an interception.

Wolverines Fall

To Crandon In

Overtime 28-22


In a crossover clash featuring two of the top running backs in the area, Ben Fischer of Crivitz and Crandon’s Hayden Krueger, the Wolverines came up short in overtime 28-22.

Fischer got the call 23 times for 141 yards and two scores, all in the first half, while Krueger added 307 yards in 43 rushes and three touchdowns.

“This was a tough loss for us and Fischer was out again the entire second half with leg cramps. The only game he played in both halfs was against Lena-STAA. This is frustrating because we are a good team with him, but struggle without him,” Crivitz coach Jeff Ott. “It seems that every year we play the top team in the Northern Lakes Conference for a crossover game, and this year that happens to be Crandon.”

Needless to say, both teams relied on the ground game for success. Crivitz tallied 263 total yards over 60 plays with 170 coming via the run. Quarterback AJ Garcia connected on 6 of 19 throws for 93 yards and one touchdown.

The Krueger-led Crandon offense chalked up 319 of its 346 yards rushing. The tireless Krueger ran the ball 43 times and scored on runs of 2 and one yard during regulation while adding a yard blast in the overtime.

“Crandon is a good team and Krueger a tough runner for only being 155 pounds...quick and can shift on the go. They controlled the ball with Krueger as we ran only 3 plays the entire third quarter. We still had our chances, but couldn’t score late,” Ott said.

The Wolverines spent most of first half with the lead. Fischer put his mates up 7-0 with a one yard scamper at the 5:22 mark to cap a 13 play 58 yard drive. Fischer carried 12 times for 39 yards while Garcia hooked up with Treven Gezella on a 19 yard toss. Joe Rodriguez booted the extra point for a 7-0 edge.

Crandon stormed back with a 6 play 60 yard scoring march. Krueger dented the Crivitz defense 4 times for 56 yards, including a 21 yard jaunt to the two yard line. Murray scored on the next play while the conversion attempt failed with 2:39 remaining in period one.

The Wolverines needed just one play to regain the upper hand at the 11:19 mark of period two as Fischer broke free on a 59 yard scoring scamper. Rodriguez split the uprights for a 14-6 Crivitz edge.

Krueger got Crandon even at 14-14 in the third frame with yard run and the conversion (6:56).

Leaders of the Northern Lakes Conference, the Cardinals took the lead for the first time just :08 into period four when Murray scooted in from 3 yards out. Krueger muscled his way into the end zone on the conversion attempt as Crandon owned a 22-14 edge.

Down but certainly not out, Crivitz answered when Garcia and Parker DeLosSantos teamed up on a 12 yard scoring pass with 6:50 remaining in regulation. Looking to knot the score up, Garcia flipped a conversion pass to Gezella for a 22-all deadlock.

Heading into overtime, both teams got the ball but only Crandon scored. Crivitz won the toss, but decided to go on defense to open the extra session.

Getting the ball, the Cardinals used a facemask penalty and an offside along with a steady diet of Krueger to punch the ball into the end zone from 25 yards out. Krueger got the ball on all 4 plays...picking runs of 7, minus 2, 9 and one for the teedee. Crandon fumbled the snap leaving the door open for Crivitz.

Needing to score, Crivitz went backwards. Nick Chapman lost 2 yards while Garcia saw a trio of passes fall incomplete.

“Our offensive line did not play very well and with Fischer out, Crandon stacked the box. We lost two yards on first down in overtime then our next three plays were passes...two of them almost ended up as touchdowns,” Ott added.

Sitting at 2-3 overall and 1-3 in the M-O Conference, Crivitz needs to win its final three games to qualify for the playoffs.

“Our backs are to the wall and we have to win out to make the playoffs. We have Gillett this week followed by Coleman and Wausaukee,” Ott concluded.
