Crivitz Remains Tied For Lead

Takes Care Of Titans 42-12 For 3-0 League Mark; DeLaet

Sparks 36-28 Ranger Victory


Unleashing their best passing output of the season, the Crivitz Wolverines (4-1, 3-0) remain tied for the top spot in the M-O Conference following a lopsided 42-12 home win over the Lena-STAA Titans Friday. The Wolverines amassed 386 yards of offense, 254 on the ground to go along with 132 passing and three touchdowns thrown by quarterback Colton Lang.

The Wolverines share first place in the 7-team league with Peshtigo, a 28-0 winner over previously unbeaten Coleman. The conference lead and for all practical purposes, the championship, will be on the line Friday night as Crivitz heads to Peshtigo in a key M-O showdown.

Elsewhere in conference play, Wausaukee rode the talents of Beau DeLaet to a high scoring 36-28 road win over Gillett while Suring fell to Florence 15-12 in a crossover contest.

M-O games heading into the midway point of the season on Friday, September 27 find Lena-STAA traveling to Elcho to play White Lake-Elcho in an early kickoff at 4pm while games starting at 7pm have Gillett at rival Suring and Coleman takes the hike to Wausaukee.

Lang, Fischer Shine

As Crivitz Races To

42-12 Win Over Titans


Lena/STAA might have thought it had caught a glimpse of some sort of light at the end of the proverbial tunnel late in the second quarter in Crivitz Friday, down 30-0, when Blaik Fischer capped off a beautiful Cavalier drive with a six-yard scoring run.

The Wolverines apparently took exception with the Lena/STAA offensive outburst.

With just 1:12 showing on the first half clock, Crivitz went to work and ended up hitting pay dirt in the form of a surgical strike from quarterback Colton Lang to Micah Sessler that went for 40 yards, making it 36-0 at the half (failed kick) and effectively dashed the hopes of a Cavalier comeback.

The bomb for six points late in the second period was one of three touchdown passes thrown by Lang in the game. He hit Jake Sawinski from 12 yards out for a teedee earlier in the second quarter in addition to running one in from four yards out in the game's opening quarter. Lang finished with an impressive six completions on 10 attempts for 132 yards and zero interceptions.

Lena/STAA's Kiefer Powers had a nice night throwing the ball also, going five for nine with 108 yards, including a 59-yard pass play that went for a touchdown to Roy O'Harrow in the fourth quarter.

But the Crivitz ground game was once again unstoppable. The Wolverines picked up 254 yards rushing as Ben Fischer led the way with 146 yards on 12 carries. Fischer got the evening's scoring started with a five-yard carry across the goal line to cap a nice opening drive by the Wolverines and then scored again in the third from 13 yards out to wrap up the Crivitz scoring with the readout at 42-6. Sam Banaszak added 33 yards on five carries.

“We played a better game this week but we have to be able to punch it in when we get inside the 20 yard line. We were at the 6 and 12 yard lines and came up with zip. Defensively we forced turnovers, now we have got to get a full game,” Titan co-head coach Dale Lange said.

DeLaet Leads Rangers

To 36-28 Win Over Gillett


Thanks to a huge game from senior quarterback Beau DeLaet, the Wausaukee Rangers knocked off host Gillett Friday night 36-28. DeLaet burned the Tigers with his arm and legs and pretty much did everything but sell popcorn at the game.

The talented DeLaet accounted for 341 yards in total offense and had a hand in 4 touchdowns. He completed 12 of 14 passes for 132 yards and 3 scores, rushed 17 times for 203 yards and a touchdown while catching one pass for 6 yards.

DeLaet didn’t do it by himself. Junior end Aaron Schlies was on the receiving end of 9 passes for 83 yards and those 3 teedees, Eric Arndt added 3 receptions for 41 yards along with 4 rushes for 26 yards while fullback Russell Smith chipped in with 9 carries for 9 yards.

While the Rangers were sparked by the play of DeLaet, Monte Noffke shouldered the offensive load for Gillett. Noffke carried the ball 24 times for 131 yards and a touchdown and hauled in 3 passes for 36 yards. Matt Peterson was the number two runner for Gillett with 9 rushes for 69 yards while quarterback Alex Zeitler carried 10 times for 32 yards. Zeitler hit on 6 of 13 throws for 117 yards.

“Wausaukee did a good job of making plays when they had to. They were able to bust two big runs during the game from DeLaet, who may be the best athlete in the league.  I was proud of our kids and the resiliency they showed battling back from a 14 - 0 deficit in the first half to tie it with 11 seconds remaining.  Then we were able to battle back again in the 4th quarter.  Leeland Kahler stepped up nicely and made a key catch on our last drive for a 39 yard gain,” Gillett coach Rick Kamps said.

Wausaukee took a 6-0 lead at the 7:59 mark of period one when Schlies snagged a 1 yard scoring toss from DeLaet .

The lead grew to 14-zip with 10:08 remaining in the half as Eric Arndt busted loose on a 7 yard scoring scamper and Schlies caught the conversion pass from DeLaet.

Down but certainly not out, Gillett stormed back. Coach Kamps saw his troops score twice in the final 4:30 to get even at 14-all. Zeitler accounted for both touchdowns, the first coming on a yard run (4:30) and the second from 9 yards out with 0:11 remaining in the half. Daniel Torres booted the extra points following both scores.

With their lead vanished, the Rangers responded with a pair of third quarter teedee passes from DeLaet to Schlies to go up for good. The first toss was from 15 yards out at the 8:14 mark while touchdown number two came from 10 yards (4:54). DeLaet tacked on the conversion run after the second score for a 28-14 edge.

Gillett made things interesting in the final 12 minutes with a pair of teedees. Peterson scooted in from 2 yards out at the 6:38 mark and Torres split the uprights for a 28-21 deficit.

Wausaukee had an answer two minutes later as DeLaet raced 53 yards to the end zone and Arndt added the conversion run for a seemingly comfortable 36-21 cushion (3:53).

But Gillett wouldn’t go away quietly and closed within 36-28 when Noffke scored from 8 yards out with only 0:34 left.

“I thought Monte Noffke ran the ball extremely well as he busted a couple of long runs and hung on to the ball tonight.  He is extremely talented and runs hard.  Zeitler once again played well as the young sophomore signal caller put up another 100 yard performance, his fifth in as many games and it was great to see us rush for over 200 yards with Noffke leading the way with 124,” Kamps concluded. “Next week we travel to Suring to face our arch rival the Eagles who will present a tough matchup for us.  We will have to do everything we can to contain the Kempen kid.”

Suring Tipped

By Florence

In a evenly played crossover clash Friday, the Suring Eagles came up on the short end of a 15-12 loss to host Florence. The Eagles had their scoring opportunities, but couldn’t convert when the game was on the line.

Florence took a 7-0 lead in the opening quarter as Josh Seibold scored from 11 yards out and Drew Seibold added the PAT. Suring closed within 7-6 on a 12 yard scamper by Creo VanBellinger, but the conversion run was stopped short of the end zone.

The Eagles took their only lead of the game in the second quarter at 12-7 as Tyler Fisher hauled in a 25 yard scoring toss from John Christensen. Again the conversion attempt was stopped short.

Suring protected the lead until the fourth quarter when Florence scored the eventual game winner as quarterback Fred Noeske hooked up with Lukas Garceau on a 6 yard toss. That same aerial combination clicked on the conversion play for the 15-12 final score.

Suring saw a potential game winning drive get snuffed out when Drew Seibold picked off a pass with 0:24 remaining.

Noeske threw for 55 yards and added 44 yards rushing while Josh Seibold rambled for 77 yards and Drew Seibold 45.

The victory was the first of the season for Florence (1-3, 1-2), which will head to Crandon Friday night in a Northern Lakes Conference clash.
