Injury Ridden Bulldogs Pull Out Win Over Wolves

Coleman Blasts Oconto

The Coleman Cougar football team was too much for the visiting Blue Devils of accent to handle as the home field Cougars ran wild for a 50-14 win.

Starting the scoring for the Cougars was Tyler Blanchard who worked his way into the end zone on a five yard rush. Mason Risner followed up a short while later with a 12 yard rush for another teedee.

Blanchard got the first score of the second quarter, posting two points off a safety tackle. A short while later he visited his the end zone again this time off a two yard run.

Oconto's Bennett Fraser scored late in the second off a 55 yard catch from Zach Sherman.

At the half the Cougars held a nice edge 20-8.

Blanchard continued to have a fantastic night on the ground, scoring early in the alft off a three yard rush.

Brock Martinson scored next for the Cougar defense, rearing a fumble 67 yards for the score.

Risner scored off a 29 yard run while Jacob Zeitler tagged on Coleman's final score in the fourth quarter off a 66 yard rush.

Oconto's Sherman tacked on a 17 yard touchdown pass before time expired.

On the ground for the Cougars Zeitler posted 192 yards on 17 carries while Blanchard got 110 yards on 17 carries. Eisner also made triple digits with 133 yards on 13 carries. Accent finished the night with minus 15 yards of rushing.

Carson Moe got 173 passing yards in a eight of 18 performance for the Blue Devils.



Crivitz Wins Over Northland Pines in Nail Biter

The Crivitz Wolverines had a tough contest on their hands last Friday on the field of hosting Northland Pines as the two teams battled for a 14-7 finish with the Wolverines on top.

The Wolverines struck first, scoring quickly on a Jaden Werner to Eli Lawrence pass which went 22 yards to pay dirt.

Northland Pines responded a short while later with a Tyler Hunt 29 yard rushing score which quoted things up at 7-7 going into the intermission.

But a Third quarter score and a fourth quarter defensive stand would prove to be enough for the Wolverines to continue their winning ways.

That third quarter score was tallied by Wolverine Ezekiel Lawrence who broke the goal line on a one yard blast.

Through the air Werner was three of 12 for 38 yards and a touchdown while northland Pines was held to just two passing yards.

On the ground Wolverine Ezekiel Lawrence posted 48 yards on seven carries while Tony Jopek got 34 yards on six carries. Northland's Hunt led the way on the ground with 45 yards on 12 carries.



Bulldogs Out Fight Wolves

Some different players stepped up in big ways to help the Peshtigo Bulldogs beat the Algoma Wolves on Friday.

With the team's top offensive player, Jerod Jandt, already out due to injury and Nick Nielson picking up an injury last week in a loss to Southern Door, it took some different names making plays to get a 23-6 win.

After a scoreless first quarter, things got going less than a minute into the second quarter. With Mitchell VanVooren triple-teamed, Max Rauch ran a good route, catching a pass from Travis Plym and taking it 66 yards to the one-yard line.

"On the pass, [Rauch] made a really good sight adjustment. They had three guys going where Mitchell was. He saw the safety turn up, Travis read it and just made a great throw," Peshtigo coach Jeff Bayerl said. "Max so wanted to score but they caught him at the one."

Will Boettcher punched in the touchdown from the one.

"Will just punched it in and I think that jump-started us a bit," Bayerl said.

Algoma scored its only points of the game with 28 seconds left in the half on a four-yard run from Zach Dellis, but the extra point was missed, giving Peshtigo a 7-6 lead at the half.

Over nine minutes into a scoreless third, Rauch caught his second pass of the game, this time scoring from 12 yards away on a Plym throw.

In the fourth, Joe Sodini made a tackle in the end zone for a safety, extending the Bulldog lead to two scores at 16-6.

"We all thought as a coaching staff Joe Sodini and Max Rauch played their best defensive games of the year. They stepped up and did the job," Bayerl said. "This was our best defensive game of the year by far. They were big, they were physical and they ran the ball well. We bent a little bit but we didn't break."

Aidan Bohaczek scored on a four-yard run in the fourth to put the game away.

"I think everybody did a great job. They all stepped up. Going into the game I told the guys, "it's going to be a war of attrition,'" Bayerl said. "'They're big, they're physical, but they have nine or ten guys going both ways, so we're going to wear them down and win in the fourth quarter.' It went just about the way I thought it was going to go."

Boettcher led the team with 20 runs for 67 yards and a score. He threw three times, completing one and throwing one interception. Plym was 3-for-5 passing for 91 yards, a touchdown and a pick.

The Bulldogs had 234 yards of offense to Algoma's 197.

Next week brings a tough test for the Bulldogs with a share of the Packerland Conference on the line. They head to Kewaunee to face the Storm, a team that is 7-0 on the season.

With a win, the Bulldogs (7-1) will get a share of the title, but they can't win it outright, as Kewaunee has yet to lose in conference play and the Bulldogs lost to Southern Door, which can also claim a share of the title with a win over Coleman.

"In my opinion, the pressure is squarely on [Kewaunee]," Bayerl said. "We're going to come in, we're going to be loose, we're going to have some fun, play as hard as we can and let "er go, see what happens."



Gibralter defeats Wausaukee

The Gibraltar Vikings were too much for the Wausaukee Rangers as they built a big 44-28 win.

Gibraltar started with 21 yard touchdown pass to Trevor Reinhardt and followed it with another passing score to Reinhardt from 60 yards out for an ealry two score lead.

Wausaukee got into the mix during the second quarter, scoring off a Quentin Unferth 20 yard run. The Vikings' Reinhardt scored again during the second quarter While Wausaukee responded before the half with a Joey Rozivka 13 yard passing score.

During the fourth quarter Wausaukee did all it could to fight back as Tyler Gruszynski scored off a 39 yard run and Brandon Shigouri off a 30 yard rush, but fell short.

Passing saw Shigouri toss it 50 yards while on the ground Gruszynski got 138 on 24 carries.



Lena/STAA Defeats Oneida Nation

The Lena/STAA Titans took a nice 44-7 win over the visit Oneida Nation Thunderhawks Friday night.

Logan Shallow got the Titans on the board early with a 28 yard rushing score. Simon Gard scored next off a 13 yard pass from Colby Borchert and wrapped up the half with another pass from Borchert this time from 40 yards out.

Trenton Telford scored first in the second half off a 40 yard scamper while Ralph Comins registered the last score of the night off a 20 yard rush,

Gard passed for 125 yards in a five of twelve effort while Telford rushed for 90 yards on eight carries.



Marinette Gets Shutout

Marinette's offense struggled against Freedom on Friday as the Marines fell 28-0.

The teams were scoreless at the first break, with the Marinette defense holding steady. Freedom got on the board first, with quarterback Reeve Lambrecht rushing in from seven yards for the score to make it 7-0.

The game went to halftime at that margin. In the third, Lambrecht fired a 38-yard touchdown to Conor Dickrell. In the fourth, Lambrecht ran in a 32-yard touchdown and threw a 24-yard score to Jon Verhasselt.

Despite the 28 points, the Marinette defense was solid, with Lambrecht only going 12-for-31 passing for 194 yards and two touchdowns.

As a team, Freedom ran 25 times for 78 yards for a 3.1-yard average.

Joe Bezio led Marinette with nine rushes for 43 yards. Matt Wagner went 9-for-21 passing for 70 yards and two interceptions. Trey Bretl had three catches for 34 yards.



Menominee

Menominee looked like it was going to finish its trip downstate with a bang, but Okemos stormed back to ruin it on Friday.

The Maroons traveled over 400 miles to face the Lansing-area Chieftains, leading early by as much as 16. Okemos stormed back to send Menominee back on the long bus ride.

Okemos ran for 357 yards on its way to defeat Menominee 44-26.

Brendon Harris led Menominee on the ground, rushing for 49 yards and a score. He threw 12 times, completing eight for 139 yards and one touchdown. Keegan Monroe caught seven of those eight passes for 129 yards and one touchdown.
