Cougars Off And Running

Issue Date: August 27, 2014

Coleman Blanks Northern Elite; Bulldogs Come Up Empty Against Kewaunee

Cougars Take Care Of

Northern Elite


The Northern Elite Predators had exactly one solid scoring opportunity in last Friday night’s season opener in Coleman.

In the middle of a productive drive thanks to a nice kickoff return in the third quarter but behind on the scoreboard, the Predators found themselves in the red zone and knocking on the door looking for their first points of the season.

Cougars’ head coach Jeff Bronson could be heard from the sideline calmly encouraging his troops.

This is what we’ve worked on all summer. How are you going to respond?

The Cougars answered Bronson’s question moments later when Austin Tachick came up with an interception on Predators’ quarterback Hunter Kaldor at the front of the end zone to put an end the threat and Coleman rolled to a 24-0 shutout win.

As a staff, we have talked about handling adversity since our mini-camp, said Bronson. In the past, we have had a negative play impact the next few series of play. We decided to make it a point of emphasis to be able to put a negative play behind us and focus on the next play. Northern Elite had a good return to set themselves up with great field position and the team fought through it and made a play when it counted.

Coming out of the halftime break up only 6-0, the Cougars got right to work in the third. On the third play of his team’s opening drive, Coleman’s Marc Lansin broke loose for a 36-yard run into the end zone to put the Cougars up 14-0 following a successful two-point conversion. Lansin was particularly devastating in the rushing attack last Friday night as he tore up the Northern Elite defense for

122 yards on 13 carries and two touchdowns with some very hard running.

Lansin wasn’t the only Cougar piling up yardage in the ground game. Brandon Pagel ran the ball eight times for 76 yards; Kevin Lansin added 54 yards on 10 carries while quarterback Blake Margis picked up 71 yards on 13 rushes, including the team’s first score of the game, a 22-yard dash across the goal line in the second frame.

Margis went two-for-five in the passing game with 33 yards gained and one interception against him. C.J. Pillath grabbed a pass for 23 yards while Gunner Patz’s reception went for 10.

Coleman racked up 424 yards when all was said and done while holding the Predators, who were paced by 85 yards on the ground from Kaldor, to only 75 yards of net offense. Coleman also controlled the pace of the game as it ran 59 plays to just 25 for the Northern Elite team.

I thought both teams left points off the board--especially on the first drives, commented Bronson. Northern Elite is a good team as they can attack you either on the inside with that big offensive line or the outside with the speed that they have. It took us a while to adjust and they did a nice job mixing their play calls.

The Cougars will be on the road this week for a Thursday night game in Manawa and the team has identified some things form the season opener that it will be working on correcting for week two.

Offensively, we need to sustain blocks longer to get our backs to be able to square their shoulders.  We were a little high out of our stance and that is something that will continue to be worked on. Other areas we need to focus on will be ball protection.  We can 't put the ball on the ground as much as we did and expect continued success. With that said, I was pleased with the number of drives that we had double digit plays and how we controlled the clock--we just need to start ensuring we finish drives with points.



Bulldogs Can’t Solve

Kewaunee


Time and again over the course of last Friday night’s season opener in Peshtigo, the Bulldogs allowed themselves to make simple mistakes. And by the end of the night, all of the minor lapses and breakdowns on the field of play resulted in a 52-0 defeat at the hands of the visiting Kewaunee Storm.

We had a lot of missed blocks, a lot of dropped balls, said first-year head coach Eric Seyler. With a little more work and a little more experience, we make more of those plays and it’s a totally different ball game. We missed out on some scoring opportunities in the first two quarters, plays that would have made the game a lot more competitive.

Peshtigo held the Storm to just six points on one rushing touchdown in the first quarter and looked competitive early. But Kewaunee blew the game wide open in the second frame with a 27-point output, including a 77-yard passing play from Logan Brusky to Peter Metzler, part of the Storm’s 205-yard passing effort on the day.

The Bulldogs also had some decent gains through the air as quarterback Jake Jagielski finished 9-for-19 with 96 yards and Justin Thill completed all three of his passes for 25 yards. Matt Miller hauled in two catches for 46 yards while Jake Romanesko also caught two passes for 35 yards. Kyle Gokey turned in 31 yards on six carries to lead the ground attack.

It was kind of a baptism by fire on Friday night, Seyler said. We’re running a new offense with a lot of new players. But even at the end of that game, they were still communicating with each other and getting after it. We need to clean up some of our mistakes and make some progress on some technique things but it’s all stuff we’re improving on. It’s not a lack of hustle that’s holding us back at this point.



Rangers Run All Over

Cardinals


Wausaukee’s Russell Smith racked up 125 yards on the ground in the Ranger’s season opener in Crandon, his bruising 19 carries opening things up nicely for quarterback Aaron Schlies and the rest of the offense as Wausaukee earned the 36-20 victory.

The offensive line is gelling very well which helps in creating some nice running lanes, said Rangers’ head coach Jared Deschane. I am really proud with how they work together and coach (Grant) Russ and coach (Dave) Lindbeck do an excellent job getting them ready to go.

The line did its job and Wausaukee did a number on the Cardinals as they put up 299 yards of total offense, 261 of which came via the ground game. Schiles, working under center for the recently-injured Eric Arndt, took off with the ball 12 times and picked up 102 yards. He scored four touchdowns on the day, a one-yard TD early in the opening quarter followed by another in the first frame from 28 yards out. Schlies also had scoring runs of three and 12 yards in the third quarter and also threw for one in the second quarter, a 17-yard hookup with Quentin Ranallo.

Defensively we played very well and the guys did a great job getting bodies to the football, said Deschane. They created three turnovers which helped overcome the two turnovers that we had offensively.



Crivitz Falls To Bonduel

In Opener


The Wolverines drew a tough opponent for their first game of the season in the Bonduel Bears and the result was a 41-13 defeat for the team from the M-O as the Bears got 166 yards on 14 rushing attempts from Hunter Vanderlinden.

They have an outstanding running back and we had a hard time corralling him, said Crivitz head coach Jeff Ott. Offensively, we run an I-offense and everybody knows we’re going to give it to the tailback most of the time. Bonduel’s linebackers are also very athletic and they got to us.

The Wolverines had a tough time getting their running game going and finished the game with just 98 yards on 38 total attempts on the ground. Josh Spink got the ball 10 times and finished with 30 yards while Nicholas Chapman had 21 yards on 13 carries.

Crivitz signal caller Colton Lange scrambled for 28 yards on seven tries with a trip across the goal line and had some nice plays through the air as he finished with a total of 108 yards on an 11-for-15 effort with a touchdown and an interception.

Lange’s aerial scoring play came late in the third period when he connected with Kershaw Stumbris for a seven-yard touchdown.

Micah Sessler hauled in six of Lange’s passes for 88 yards.

I thought Colton was on the money most of the game, commented Ott. He got out of the pocket a few too many times, he scrambled four or five times where he probably could have hung in there and made a nice pass. But it was the first game of the year and he won’t make those mistakes next time.



Tigers Shred Mustangs

It just wasn’t even close.


The Gillett Tigers opened up the new season with a 63-0 shellacking of Elcho/White Lake on the road last Friday as Monte Noffke piled on 179 yards on the ground to make up a good chunk of his team’s 426 total yards.

Thought it was a nice win for our kids.  We were able to come out early and establish the line of scrimmage, said Tigers head coach Rick Kamps. I thought our line played well and executed their assignments. Monte Noffke picked up where he left off last year and ran the ball very well tonight. 

Very well, indeed. By the time Noffke had uncorked his longest run of the night, a 75-yard haul in the third quarter to put the Tigers up 42-0, things were looking ugly enough for the Wolverines. But Noffke did it again later in the third with a 42-yard run for a touchdown. The Tigers added another one in the fourth as the passing game got involved in the scoring with quarterback Alex Zeitler connecting with Evan Bubolz from 13 yards out.

Nofke finished the game with five touchdowns while teammate Brett Milhans added 94 yards on four carries and one touchdown. Gillett’s Akeem Bates rushed the ball three times for 36 yards and two of his team’s nine touchdowns.

Defensively, I thought Kody Pawlak and Brett Milhans played extremely well from their inside LB position, Kamps concluded. We Had several nice surprises from first year starters on the defensive side of the ball.



Titans Defeated By Abundant Life

The Lena/STAA Titans endured a trek to Madison and an hour’s worth of delays to the start of Saturday’s game due to lightning in order to begin their new season of eight-man football against Abundant Life Christian. In the end, the score was as gloomy as the weather with the Titans falling in a 34-6 decision.

The Titans did have a few offensive highlights in the game, however. Nash Haney rushed for 87 yards on 18 carries while teammate Levi Carlson picked up 48 yards on four carries as the team racked up 116 yards on the ground.

We played well at the start of the game and we were still doing pretty good at halftime with the score at 14-6, said Titans co-head coach Dale Lange. We moved the ball well early and we found some of our younger guys like Keegan Imig and Austin Lange stepping up. We’re going to need to make some adjustments but I thought they played well.
