The Coleman Cougars were able to blow away the Southern Door Eagles Friday night when they handed the home field Eagles a 44-0 loss.
"We needed to tackle their half back," said Coleman Coach Jeff Bronson. "That was our goal this game. We got pressure tonight but tackled extremely well tonight. We hit low tonight. We played great against their run."
The loss was marked with some early moves by the Coleman Boys who found a way to get on the board in the first quarter. Cayden Bintz was first to Strike Friday night getting into the end zone on a six yard jaunt. Blanchard followed with a two point conversion.

"We talked this week about how to finish games the right way," said Bronson. "We talked about how to eliminate some of the penalties we had been getting, dropped snaps and bad turnover. The effort this week was great. We have eight starters back this year . These leaders took the tough start to heart."
Peshtigo Clips Crandon in Overtime 8-0
Friday wasn't the highest-scoring game coach Jeff Bayerl's Peshtigo Bulldogs will have, but they'll take it.
Peshtigo defeated Crandon 8-0 on the road Friday, though it took until overtime for either team to make its mark offensively.
Jerod Jandt ran 18 times for 92 yards to lead the Bulldogs, with Will Boettcher's 42 yards on 16 tries as well.
It was those two that did the scoring when the Bulldogs finally did break through. Jandt ran in from 15 yards and Boettcher scored on the two-point conversion to make it 8-0 on the first drive to take the lead.
Jandt was playing injured in overtime, running back and forth on the sideline most of the second half as he tried to gear up to get back into the game. When the time came, he headed out on the field to help the team win, Bayerl said.
Then it was up to the defense.
Bayerl's defense forced a loss of yardage on the first play of the O.T. drive and Crandon "got behind the chains. On fourth down, a quarterback hit forced an errant throw.
"Our defense played fantastic," Bayerl said. He added that his team only missed two or three tackles in the game to allow most of Crandon's yardage, but once Crandon got into scoring position, the Bulldogs slammed the door.
Offensively, Bayerl said weather was a factor, as were holding calls and other small mistakes that built up against his Bulldogs.
"We gutted it out when we had to at the end," Bayerl said. "I told them, "when it was on the line and you really needed to do it, you did it. You just needed to bring that intensity the whole game.'"
Peshtigo is now 2-2, while Crandon is 0-4.
Peshtigo will travel to Menominee on Thursday night to take on the Maroons. Both teams run the single wing offense which limits the element of surprise. "They know who we are and we know who they are," said Bayerl.
Bayerl has a lot of respect for Menominee, the place where he got his coaching start. "They are the cream of the crop in the area but our kids are going to come to play."
