The Menominee Maroons flexed their muscles Thursday, putting the area on notice with a 61-6 win over the Peshtigo Bulldogs on the road.

Brock Barrette scored from 20 yards out, Keagan Monroe completed a 45-yard pass to Drew Dubey for a score and he ran in from seven yards out with 2:18 to go in the quarter. Just six seconds later, Peshtigo was tackled in the end zone for a Menominee safety.
When the Maroons got the ball back, they made quick work, scoring on a 43-yard run from Monroe about two minutes later.
"Our kids were really ready. The whole tri-city thing with Marinette, Menominee, Peshtigo, they take a lot of pride in that trying to be the most successful team here I guess," Menominee coach Joe Noha said. "We were blocking, we owned the line of scrimmage again like we did last week and then our backs are pretty talented. We've got three or four guys that can really run the ball and we showed that tonight."
By halftime, the score was 47-6, with Menominee wracking up over 400 yards by the time the teams headed to the locker room.
Monroe threw touchdown passes of 35 and 65 yards to Dante Sartorelli in the second quarter. He would finish with 143 yards passing and three touchdowns on just five attempts, along with 164 yards rushing on 10 tries with a pair of touchdowns.
"He's been a great senior for us this year, working hard. He really knows the game and it's been nice having his senior leadership and his skill level this year," Noha said.
Barrette scored from 16 yards out just before the half ended to get the Maroons to 47 points. He would finish with 133 yards on 11 carries with two scores.
The Maroons called off the dogs, so to speak, in the second half, though their defense remained stout and didn't allow any points. Joe Romero-Haire ran in from 11 yards out and Jon Boucher scored on a 41-yard run to add to the lead and finish things off.
Peshtigo was led by Jerod Jandt, who went 2-for-4 passing for 37 yards and a touchdown. He was limited on the ground, however, with the Maroons holding him to an uncharacteristic 32 yards rushing on 14 tries. Darius Sechen ran 15 times for 70 yards.
Ultimately, this game will hopefully serve as a learning experience for the young Bulldogs.
"They're a good football team, a very good football team," Peshtigo coach Jeff Bayerl said. "I told the kids at halftime, "I brought you here because this is where I want our football team to go. This is exactly why I took us here.' I want them to see this."
