Peshtigo Win Streak Continues/Crivitz Tops MONLPC-Small

Issue Date: September 20, 2018

Peshtigo Pulls Away From Crandon 39-6

On the road against Crandon on Friday, the Peshtigo Bulldogs did what they needed to do.

The Bulldogs left Crandon with a comfortable 39-6 win, though the numbers won't blow anybody away.

They scored in the first quarter on a 40-yard touchdown pass from Nick Nielson to Mitchell VanVooren. Nielson ran one in from 27 out in the second quarter to make it 15-0.

Before halftime, Travis Plym undercut an out route, intercepting the pass and taking it 42 yards for a Bulldogs touchdown, giving them a 23-0 lead.

"He just cut under the receiver and took it to the house," Bulldogs coach Jeff Bayerl said.

Nielson threw an 11-yard pass to Alex Dolata for the score in the third to make it 30-0 and Aidan Bohaczek, who normally does his scoring through the kicking game, ran one in from 14.

Crandon got six back on a touchdown pass late in the third and Bohaczek rounded out the scoring with a field goal in the fourth.

Peshtigo had 335 offensive yards to Crandon's 146. The Bulldogs converted six of seven third downs, while Crandon was also effective at five-for-nine.

The Bulldogs didn't win by 50 or post gaudy numbers, but Bayerl was happy with what they did.

"Everybody is expecting them to blow them out. You don't need to," he said. "You go out there, do your job, win and come home. Everybody stayed healthy so that's a good thing."

Nielson went 8-10 passing for 121 yards and two touchdowns. He threw one pick. He led the Bulldogs on the ground with 13 carries for 106 yards. He recovered a fumble on defense as well, as did Reese DeMarce and Zach Lemahieu.

Offensively, the Bulldogs have become more versatile with Nielson at the helm, Bayerl said.

"Other defensive coordinators, we must be giving them fits," he said.

Peshtigo welcomes the 1-4 Oconto Blue Devils to Bulldog Stadium on Friday. Bayerl won't read into that record, however.

"They've got Bennett Frazer and their quarterback is good," Bayerl said. "They're well balanced, they play hard-nosed defense and if we're not ready, we're going to get a loss. We just have to do our jobs."



Marines Can't Slow Down Spartans, Fall in NEC Battle 49-20

Marinette had a hard time containing the Luxemburg-Casco Spartans offense in a 49-20 loss on Friday.

The Spartans got rushing touchdowns in each of the first two quarters to take a 14-0 lead. In the second quarter, Lance Tebon got his second of three touchdowns on the day. He would rush for 73 yards on seven tries.

Marinette got eight points back on a passing touchdown from Matt Wagner to Jake Poetzl for a 30-yard score. Sam Drees added the two-point conversion.

Lux-Casco got a big play to take seven right back, however, as Garrit Aissen fired a 37-yard pass to Noah Lindsley for a touchdown.

Colton Worachek opened the second half with a four-yard touchdown run to make it 35-8. Wagner threw a 62-yard touchdown to Joe Bezio and ran in a two-yarder himself, but the Marines allowed Aissen to throw another 32-yard touchdown pass in the quarter.

The Spartans got a 21-yard touchdown run from Tebon in the fourth as well. The Spartans had a total of 482 yards of offense on the night.

"We're banged up, but we're not going to use that as an excuse. Stuff happens. You've got to have guys that step up and fill their shoes," Marinette coach Andy Walters said. "I think there were times when kids did do that. There were times when kids did play well, we just gave up too many plays and had a tough time getting anything going on the ground and that made it rough for us."

Wagner finished 5-12 passing for 186 yards, throwing two touchdowns and two interceptions. He ran six times for 13 yards. Drees was the Marines' leading rusher with 34 yards on 15 carries.

Drees also had a 77-yard catch in the game. The Marines had a couple of big plays in the game.

"Explosive plays, but not enough sustained drives," Walters said. "We obviously had a tough time stopping them tonight and it would have been best for us to keep their offense off the field with sustained drives."

Marinette (2-3) heads to Clintonville for a 7 p.m. game on Friday.

"We've got to find guys that can make plays, period," Walters said. "We do have some guys that are banged up that weren't out there, but guys got an opportunity, and when they get an opportunity they've got to make plays. It's as simple as that. We're going to do what we can at practice to get better."



Predators Ground the Eagles 34-0

The Suring Eagles had no answers when they faced off against the Northern Elite Predators in a MONLPC- Small Division conference matchup. The Predator defense seemed to make plays all night long, recording their second straight shutout of the season and scoring 2 touchdowns of their own.

"I'm really happy with the way our defense played," said Predator Coach Ben Laarman. "Suring has some weapons in their backfield and we did a good job of containing them."

The Predators first put points on the board when Brett Dumke intercepted a Josh Reed pass and returned it for a touchdown. Late in the third quarter, the Predators scored their second defensive touchdown, when the Eagles fumbled inside the Predator 10-yard line and the ball was scooped up by Dumke and returned 90 yards for a touchdown. The Predators offense was also able to put together a few scoring drives behind the running efforts of QB Dumke (16 carries, 111 yards, 2 TDs) and Landon Kaldor (17 carries, 144 yards, 1 TD).

"Offensively I thought we were a little sluggish, we didn't break off big plays like we are accustomed to. Credit to Suring though, they had a good game plan against our offense and they kept battling late in the game even though they had some bad breaks go against them."

When asked about his team's performance, Suring Coach Mitch Taylor had good things to say, "Defensively we tackled a lot better, and I felt like we held them in check at times, but we gave up some big plays in crucial moments of the game. We are a young team still learning to work together, and I feel like we are getting better, but they're a tough team to go against."

Wolverines Blank Rebels

The Crivitz Wolverines took down the hosting Laona/Wabemno Rebels Friday night and did it in a big way as they shutout the Rebels 35-0.

Starting the evenings scoring was Jaden Werner who dropped back during the first quarter to complete a pass to Eli Lawrence who carried the reception 25 yards to the end zone.

The biggest quarter of the game was the second. The Wolverines found a way to produce three touchdowns before the intermission. The first was a Werner to Chandler Kaldenberg pass that went 33 yards to pay dirt while the second score of the quarter came from Tony Jopek who carried a pitch 64 yards for the score.

Before the end of the first half the Wolverines managed to plug out one more score, this one from Dawson Angriest who caught a Werner pass for the 28 yard catch and score.

Before the game was all wrapped up the Wolverines registered one final touchdown, this one in the final frame as Andrist received yet another Werner pass for the 16 yard teedee.

Werner had an amazing night through the air for the Wolverines as he amassed 129 yards and four teedees on seven of his 12 passes. The Rebels' Jake Christianson got 32 yards on six of his 13 passes.

Rushing was led by the Wolverines' Werner as well, who sprinted for 73 yards on the evening. Laona/Wabeno's Christianson got 32 yards on six carries.



Gillett Gets Shutdown by Gibraltar

The Gillett Tigers were unable to quell the advance of the Gibraltar Vikings who took the win by way of an 80-30 readout.

It was quick and often when it came to Vikings scoring, The first quarter saw a couple quick hits right out of the gates. After three touchdowns the Vikings led 18-0.

It was then that Gillett showed a bit of a spark as Bo Krueger broke into the end zone from three yards back. At the end of the first frame the Vikings were well ahead of the Tigers 24-8.

Gibraltar continued the onslaught during the second quarter scoring another teedee before Gillett's Anthony Anderson scored on a 62 yard pass from Kreuger.

A short while later Gillett returned a kickoff the bring the games tally to 38-24. But from that point on the Tigers lost their momentum and saw the Vikings increased the lead. Anderson scored one last Gillett teedee during the fourth with a 11 yard scamper.

Gillett's Krueger got 62 arial yards while also leading in the ground game with 52 yards.



Wausaukee Goes Wild On Menominee Indian

The Wausaukee Ranger 8-man football team had a great night last Friday when they took down the visiting Menominee Indian Eagles 50-0.

The shutout win was put on end by Brandon Shigouri who caught a 63 yard pass from Tyler Gruszynski for the night's opening score.

With two minutes left in the first quarter Gruszynski broke loose on a QB keeper which he scored on from three yards back.

Shigouri got his second teedee of the night during the second frame when he reeled in the 11 yard pass from Gruszynski. The two repeated the success a short while later with another passing score, this time from 19 yards out.

After the intermission the Rangers wasted no time in plugged out another teedee, this time getting in off a 42 yard Gruszynski scamper. Kyle Struve followed up near the end of the third quarter with a four yard rushing touchdown.

Corey Boesen capped off the evenings scoring with a 17 yard scoring run.

Through the air Gruszynski amassed 140 yards on six of his ten passes with three teedess to his name.

Shigouri led the ground game with 140 yards on six carries.



Blue Devils are Swept Away by the Storm

The Oconto Blue Devils were no match for the high-scoring Kewaunee Storm on Friday, falling 45-0.

Kewaunee took a 38-0 lead into the halftime break behind three touchdown passes from quarterback Ryan Carmichael.

Owen Kudick got Kewaunee's first score in the first quarter, running in a 22-yard touchdown. He then caught a 78-yard touchdown pass from Carmichael.

In the second quarter, Travis Reinke made it 21-0 with a touchdown run. Carmichael fired a 25-yard touchdown to Alex Hewett. Doubling as the team's kicker, Hewett hit a 28-yarder to expand the lead to 31.

Carmichael, who finished 9-17 passing for 212 yards, threw a nine-yard touchdown to McCoy Walechka before the half ended.

The Storm didn't keep up its torrid scoring pace in the second half, with only a one-yard touchdown run from Jack Severin in the third quarter.

Kewaunee posted 477 total yards on 47 plays. Kudick had 139 yards rushing on 10 attempts.

The Blue Devils had some success on the ground, though it wasn't reflected on the scoreboard. Bennett Frazer ran seven times for 93 yards and Troy Wenzel had 78 yards on eight tries.

Carson Moe threw 15 times, completing four for 49 yards.

Oconto (1-4) faces its second undefeated team in a row next week when it travels to Peshtigo for a 7 p.m. game.



Cougar Ground Game Proves to be Too Much for Clippers

The Coleman Cougars put the hurt on the Sturgeon Bay Clippers Friday, winning 52-6.

Coleman scored 22 points in the first quarter. Tyler Blanchard caught a 15-yard touchdown from Cayden Bintz, who needed to throw only six times. He completed two for 56 yards. A Blake Forner run made it 8-0.

Coleman running back Jacob Zeitler scored his first touchdown of the day from 11 yards out to make it 14-0 with a two-point conversion. Later in the quarter, he scored from 33 yards out. A failed two-pointer made it 22-0 heading into the second quarter.

Menominee Drops Non-Conference Contest with Medford

The Menominee Maroons are still searching for that elusive first win after a 26-7 loss to the Medford Raiders on Friday.

The Maroons have struggled to get the ball in the end zone this season, having been shut out in two straight games going into Friday.

The Maroons turned the ball over four times in the first half alone, allowing Medford to take a lead. They turned it over five times in the contest.

Jobe Miller gave the Raiders a lead on a touchdown pass to Cody Church in the second quarter. Ean Wilson scored a one-yard touchdown to make it 12-0 in favor of the Raiders before the break.

Menominee came out of halftime with some fire, making it 12-7 after a Brendon Harris touchdown run. The run ensured that Menominee wouldn't be shut out for the third time in four games, but it wasn't enough to keep the Maroons in the game.

Medford scored on a touchdown run to make it 18-7. A touchdown pass from Miller and two-point conversion made it 26-7, where the game would finish.
