Coleman Heads Into M-O Opener On Winning Note

Karban, Seewald Combine For 4 TD 's In 30-7 Rout

The one-two punch of Dexter Karban and Trevor Seewald combined for 4 touchdowns and 195 yards rushing to lead Coleman past Manawa 30-7. The victory gives the Cougars plenty of momentum heading into M-O Conference action as they open at home with a crossover game against run-oriented Crandon of the Northern Lakes Conference Friday.

Predicted to be one of the top teams in the Northern Lakes circuit, Crandon has already knocked off Wausaukee and Suring in non-league outings.

Crandon is another big-talented team.  I am going to wager, like our other two opponents, we will see 9-10 defenders in the box.  We will again work on our pass game to see if we can loosen them up, but until that happens we need to be satisfied with 3-4 yards a play.   The goal will be to keep the ball away from them as they have talent on every area on offense.  Return two starters that all-conference. Crandon is an experienced team that is extremely well-coached.  We will once again have our hands full, Bronson added. For us to have success we need to eliminate our negative plays on offense, win the turnover battle, and control the clock with a patient running game.

Elsewhere on opening night in the M-O, pre-season favorite Peshtigo visits Gillett while Suring takes on Lena-STAA in Marinette. One M-O outing will be played Saturday as Wausaukee heads to Crivitz for a 1pm kickoff as part of the school’s centennial celebration.

Looking ahead to their M-O opener against rival Wausaukee Saturday, Crivitz coach Jeff Ott said this will be a big game with the 100th anniversary celebration and could mark the last time we play each other as Wausaukee is talking about switching to 8-man football.

From the Wausaukee sideline, head coach Jared Deschane commented... we’ll have to bring our ‘A’ game and not make mistakes just to stay close. Our defense is going to have to pay well and try to bottle up Fischer.

Running Game Gets

Untracked As Coleman Rolls Past Manawa 30-7

With Dexter Karban and Trevor Seewald having their way up and down the field, the Cougars got back on track Friday night with a 30-7 win over visiting Manawa. Coming off a 45-30 opening loss to Northern Elite, coach Bronson’s gridiron gang shored up some things offensively and relied on the ground game.

Coleman saw Karban finish with 114 yards in 12 carries, including scoring runs of 11 and 66 yards while Seewald added 7 rushes for 81 yards and two touchdowns. Seewald broke free on a 41 yard first quarter scoring jaunt then hauled in a 15 yard pass from Blake Margis for the final touchdown.

Friday 's game was good for us. We had to overcome adversity again and played a team that was physically much bigger than us. As a staff, we were hoping that the message of being physical was received after the first game, the team was markedly improved in that area, coach Bronson said. Do we have some things to work one, definitely, but we improved in every area from week one.  Improvements still need to be made on areas like pad-level and getting to drops---but positive steps were made.

While the offense put 30 points on the board, the defense gave up 173 total yards and only allowed a first quarter touchdown.

The lone Manawa score came at the 9:52 mark and capped a 3 play 65 yard drive. Facing a third and 9 from its own 34, Manawa ran the option as Adam Langman raced 66 yards to paydirt. Garret Griffin booted the extra point for a quick 7-0 lead.

After going three and out on their first drive, the Cougars took the upper hand for good at the 5:30 mark of period one when Seewald raced 41 yards to the end zone. The scoring run came just after the Coleman defense held Manawa on fourth down at its own 41. Sophomore quarterback Margis then flipped a conversion pass to CJ Pillath for an 8-7 edge.

Following an exchange of punts, Coleman’s Austin Malecki pounced on a loose ball at the Manawa 44 setting up teedee number two. This scoring march required 5 plays as Seewald peeled off 17 yards to the 33, Marc Lansin 13 to the 20 before Karban rambled the final 16 yards to the end zone (1:44). Marc Lansin tacked on the conversion run for a 16-7 lead.

With the defense stiffening and forcing a quick punt, the Cougars took over at their own 35 with 0:31 remaining in the half. Plenty of time for more points. Lansin went nowhere on first down while a halfback option pass by Seewald fell incomplete. That brought up third down and only 19 seconds showing on the clock. With the Manawa defense thinking a trick play or outside run, the Cougars went with a fullback trap and watched Karban scoot untouched to the end zone...66 yards away. Margis hit Seewald on the conversion toss for a comfortable 24-7 edge and plenty of momentum heading into halftime.

Coleman kept Manawa off the scoreboard for the entire second half by recovering a trio of fumbles.

The final score for the Cougars came on a 15 yard pass from Margis to Seewald in the corner of the end zone to wrap up the 30-7 win.

Fischer Runs Wild As Crivitz Cruises 42-0

Senior halfback Ben Fischer carried the ball only 7 times, but made them count with 4 touchdowns and 206 yards rushing as Crivitz clobbered host White Lake-Elcho Thursday night 42-0. The game was halted in the fourth quarter because of lightening and enabled Crivitz to even off its record at 1-1.

The Wolverines and Fischer did most of their damage in the first half, racing to a comfortable 35-0 lead. Fischer hit paydirt on runs of 55 and 52 yards in the first quarter, 10 yards in period two before capping his big night with a 62 yard scoring in the third frame.

Ben ran well when he got the ball. White Lake-Elcho has a new coach and their offensive and defensive lines struggle, said Crivitz coach Jeff Ott. Sam Banaszak did a nice job blocking for Ben and rushed for 36 yards on 6 carries to go along with a couple of sacks on defense. Our sophomore backup tailback Nick Chapman added 7 rushes for 50 yards while junior quarterback Colton Lange, who had 3 interceptions last week, did a nice job throwing the ball.

Leading 15-0 after a pair of Fischer scampers, Crivitz saw Banaszak blast in from 2 yards out with Micah Sessler hauling in the conversion pass. Chapman added an 8 yard run and Fischer capped the first half explosion with a 10 yard gallop.

The lone score in period three came compliments of Fischer, who broke loose on a 62 yard run.

Weather Forces Rangers Into 8-8 Grid Deadlock

Mother Nature was the winner of this non-conference clash, postponing the game at halftime with the score tied at 8-all.

We got to the game and saw the storm was coming. Talked about maybe postponing and coming back Monday, but decided to play. Cut the quarters to 10 minutes and had an abbreviated warm up, Ranger coach Jared Deschane said. We played better then last week, but still are a young team that makes youthful mistakes which costs us momentum.

Reaching paydirt on their second possession, Wausaukee jumped out to an 8-0 lead when Beau DeLaet busted free on a 52 yard scoring scamper. The versatile DeLaet then hit Aaron Schlies on the conversion toss.

The Rangers defense protected that lead until the second quarter when Laona-Wabeno recovered a fumble and put together a 26 play/86 yard scoring drive. Wausaukee thought they came up with a stop when Schlies blocked a punt, but the Rebels recovered at the their own 47. Another punt resulted in a fumble and recovery at the Ranger 21. Seven plays later Ryan Brauer blasted in from 3 yards out and Austin Andrews tacked on the conversion run.

It was still lightening to start the second half and we waited about 45 minutes. With no end in sight, we decided to call the game. It goes down as a tie, Deschane added.

DeLaet carried the ball 4 times for 60 yards and Russell Smith 3-19.

Brauer was the top runner for Laona-Wabeno with 12 rushes for 41 yards while Andrews added 8-23.

Gillett Falls To Tigerton-Marion

Despite falling behind 14-0 in the first quarter, the Gillett Tigers regrouped and took a 22-20 edge in period three before suffering a 43-29 non-conference loss to host Tigerton-Marion Thursday. Gillett managed 272 total yards and 16 first downs, including 112 rushing on 28 carries.

We dug a hole early by getting down 14-0 in the first quarter.  I was proud of the way we battled back the entire night, first tying it in the first quarter and then taking a brief lead in the 3rd quarter after a Monte Noffke 3 yard teedee run.  Once again though we couldn 't hold the lead and they would reclaim it and go up 28-22.  We were able to close the score in the 4th quarter, only to give up a late score, coach Rick Kamps said.

After falling behind 14-0, the Tigers saw Roberts snag a pair of first quarter scoring passes from Alex Zeitler from 56 and 7 yards at the 3:44 and 2:02 marks respectively. Noffke shook free on a 3 yard scoring run in the third frame (6:30) then added the two point conversion to put his mates up 22-20.

With time winding down in the game, Roberts brought his mates with 36-29 in the fourth quarter on an electrifying 75 yard punt return (2:11).

Dylan Roberts led the way for us tonight, catching 5 balls for 122 yards and 2 teedees along with returning a punt for a 75 yard. Alex Zeitler shined going 13-19 for 160 yards and 2 scores plus rushing for another 23 yards and Monte Noffke continued to run hard, netting 70 tough yards on 21 carries with one touchdown, Kamps said.

Now 1-1 on the season, Gillett will entertain Peshtigo in the M-O Conference opener at 7pm Friday night.

Next week we face a very talented and tough Peshtigo squad who is extremely well coached.  Our goal will be to compete from the beginning to the end of the game, Kamps concluded.

Titans Trounced By Zephyrs 60-14

Going up against a formidable opponent for the second straight week, the Lena-STAA Titans came out on the short end of a 60-14 non-conference road loss to Menasha St. Mary. The Titans trailed 32-0 in the second quarter before getting on the scoreboard then added a score in the final 77 seconds.

Kiefer Powers tallied both touchdowns for the Titans on a 6 yard run in the second quarter (6:37) and a 11 yard scamper in the fourth period (1:17).

We made a lot of rookie mistakes in the first quarter that buried us. We did have two nice drives which we hope to build upon. It proves to our players that if we do what we are suppose to then we can move the ball. Defensively we showed some good stops and we were just out sized in the secondary, Titan co-head coach Dale Lange said.

The Zephyrs tallied four scores on 16 plays in the opening quarter and never looked back. Luke Young got the scoring started hauling in a 61 yard strike from Jordan Schmidt just 16 seconds into the game, Sam Dionne blasted in from 2 yards out (9:18), Schmidt scored from 5 yards (6:16) and Conner VanZeeland on a 5 yard run (4:37).

The lead grew to 32-0 when Dionne rambled 5 yards to paydirt in period two (11:55) before the Titans finally cracked the goose-egg on their side of the scoreboard. The Lena-STAA scoring drive covered 81 yards in 9 plays, highlighted by a couple of key passes from Blaik Fischer. The first connection covered 11 yards to the 36 while pass number two clicked for 43 yards to the Menasha 16. Two Fischer runs of 3 and 7 yards moved the ball to the 6 where Powers strolled in for the score. Fischer added the conversion run for a 32-8 deficit.

Menasha upped the lead to 39-8 by halftime when Kyle Kroll picked off a Powers pass and scooted 12 yards to the end zone.

In the third quarter, Menasha saw Dionne score on a 5 yard run and VanZeeland from 6 yards out for a 51-8 edge.

The Zephyr defense tackled Fischer in the end for a safety and a 53-8 score while Austin Weich returned the ensuing free kick 60 yards for a touchdown.

With the mercy clock ticking away, the Titans closed out the game with a 9 play, 62 yard scoring drive. Fischer tore off runs of 14 and 29 yards to put the Titans at the Menasha 27 before Powers got the call for the final 3 rushes, including an 11 yard scoring run (1:17).

Suring Clobbered By Crandon 36-8

Falling behind 30-0 at halftime the Suring Eagles never recovered in suffering a 36-8 loss to Crandon Friday night. The talented Cardinals saw the one-two punch of Morgan Krueger (14 carries) and Trevor Tupper (9 attempts) rush for 101 yards each in cruising to the lopsided win.

Tupper hit paydirt on runs of 10, 13 and 32 yards in the first half. Kory Kincaid added a 16 yard scoring gallop in the first quarter and Chase Tupper busted loose on a 14 yard jaunt in the fourth period.

The lone Suring score came in the fourth quarter as Creo VanBellinger bolted 50 yards to paydirt then added the conversion run.

Kincaid completed 4 of 9 passes for 52 yards in the lopsided win.
