Maroons Lose to Undefeated Irish 28-7

Issue Date: September 23, 2021

The Menominee Maroons were defeated 28-7 by Freedom on Friday.

The teams entered the second quarter scoreless, but Freedom, ranked ninth in the AP poll for medium-sized teams, took the lead in the second quarter when Nathan Senso hit Jack Vosters for a 40-yard touchdown.

In the third quarter, Clint Kriewaldt found a seam and burst 65 yards for a touchdown, stretching the lead to 14-0.

Menominee tied the game up with 7:20 left in the third quarter off a Landan Bardowski touchdown run from two yards out, but the fourth quarter belonged to the Irish.

Kriewaldt scored on a 24-yard run and Senso tossed his second touchdown, this time to Nolan Snyder, to stretch the lead to 28-7.

Senso was 8-for-13 for 120 yards and two touchdowns. Kriewaldt ran 18 times for 152 yards.

"I was very pleased with our boys' effort" Our scheme was very good. Zero-zero for a long time, 7-0, then we came back and we're within a play or two of tying the game there late in the third. We just couldn't turn the corner," Menominee coach Joe Noha said. "But I'm very proud of the guys, the effort was great and at the end there, we just ran out of gas, and Freedom's a good team, so they wore us down a bit at the end and got a couple late touchdowns."

Noha was happy with his team's effort and his assistant coaches' work to get the team ready to go.

"One of our Maroon standards is effort and attitude. If your effort's good and your attitude's good, not only will you do good on the football field, you'll be good in the classroom, you'll be good in the workplace, in school," Noha said. "All that matters to us, and I'm really proud of the guys tonight because hopefully we can get back to full healthiness here. But everybody has the same stuff: COVID, injuries, whatnot, and I just thought our kids fought through it and our coaching staff should be applauded too for just getting the kids ready and fighting on the sidelines."



Blue Devils Fall

to Storm 21-7


Kewaunee defeated Oconto by a 21-7 score on Friday.

Oconto couldn't get anything going through the air, as passers Kyle Bowman and Alex Fuller were a combined 2-for-6 for 19 yards and three interceptions. On the ground, Oconto ran 34 times for just 132 yards. Bowman led the team with 20 carries for 60 yards. Riley Anderson took nine carries for 35 yards and Houston Rude ran four times for 32 yards.

Defensively, Phillip McKeefry and Anderson each intercepted passes for the Blue Devils. Anderson led the team with 10 tackles. Rude had eight tackles.

Oconto (2-3) faces Mishicot at home on Friday.



Cougars Cruise

to Shutout Win

Over Hatchets


The Tomahawk Hatchets couldn't find any room to operate through the air or on the ground against a smothering Coleman defense on Friday.

Coleman started off its 32-0 win with a defensive touchdown, with Owen Kinziger intercepting a pass and returning it to the house in the first quarter. It was the first of three Coleman interceptions on the night.

Will Bieber scored on a 53-yard run in the second quarter, Owen Kinziger scored on a two-yard touchdown in the third and Peter Kuchta finished off the scoring with a 19-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.

Coleman completed all its two-point conversions and did its work on the defensive end.

Tomahawk's 21 runs went for just 18 yards on the night, and though Hatchets quarterback TJ Jablonski was 19-for-33 passing for 174 yards, Nosgovitz, Trent Mongin and Kinziger each intercepted passes and Coleman also recovered a fumble.

Offensively, Coleman had 386 yards, with 363 of them on the ground. Bieber ran 14 times for 120 yards, Kinziger took 14 carries for 112 yards and Mongin ran 13 times for 80 yards.

"They played hard and have some good athletes," Coleman coach Jeff Bronson said of the Hatchets.



Offense Leads Eagles

Past White Lake/Elcho

The Suring Eagles football team defeated White Lake/Elcho 40-20 on Friday.

Suring is now 2-2, and takes on Wausaukee at home next week.

No stats were available at press time.



Wolverine Quick

Start Leads to Big

Win Over Predators


The Crivitz Wolverines scored touchdowns on five of their first six possessions to coast to a 35-8 win over Northern Elite on Friday.

The Wolverines started with a bang when Tegan Werner received Sam Niven's game-opening kickoff and returned it for an 85-yard touchdown.

Sean Christensen scored on a 23-yard run later in the first, Werner carried for a 41-yard score in the second and Christensen caught a 14-yard touchdown pass from Cashton Mertens to take a 28-0 lead into the halftime break.

Mertens ran in from three yards in the third quarter for a 35-0 lead, and though Crivitz would be unsuccessful on its final two drives of the game, the Wolverines' work was done.

"We went up there, we executed, we played well," Crivitz coach Matt Bernier said. "We did what we had to do to get the win, and everybody played well. We had some guys step up."

Northern Elite got on the board courtesy of a Landon Kalkofen touchdown run in the fourth. Kalkofen was the main star of the Northern Elite offensive attack, running 18 times for 114 yards. Bryce Beauchamp ran eight times for 59 yards as well.

In total, Northern Elite had 257 offensive yards, with most of the team's success on the ground. Northern Elite passers were 3-for-10 for 37 yards.

The Wolverine offensive attack was well spread out, with no player posting more than 64 yards rushing and no player carrying more than 12 times in the game.

Werner ran five times for 64 yards and a touchdown, Christensen ran three times for 48 yards and one score, Mertens ran three times for a touchdown and 19 yards and Karson Bins led the team in carries with 12 for 50 yards. TJ Mueller took six tries for 34 yards as well.

"We wanted to get everyone a chance to run the ball and get some solid plays in," Bernier said.



Marines Can't Recover

From Slow Start,

Fall to Vikings 26-8


The Marinette Marines dropped a 26-8 game to Denmark on Friday.

Denmark led 7-0 after one quarter on a 16-yard run by Elijah Shefchik. The Vikings added two more short touchdowns before half and built the lead up to 26-0 with a 25-yard run from Rheis Johnson in the third.

Marinette got on the board courtesy of Darik McMahon's two-yard run in the fourth quarter.

For Marinette, Brett Whiting ran 11 times for 23 yards. Adam Lemery took 18 carries for 99 yards and McMahon ran 10 times for 31 yards.

Lemery was 4-for-7 passing for 32 yards and two interceptions.

In total, Marinette ran the ball 41 times for 157 yards and a fumble.

Marinette is on the road Friday against Luxemburg-Casco, the Marines' second state-ranked team in three weeks. The Marines lost 35-8 to Freedom last week.



Titans Are Too

Much For Tigers

in Lopsided Win


The Lena/St. Thomas Aquinas Titans are 4-0 on the year after completing a 69-8 rout of the Gillett Tigers on Friday.

Lena/STAA didn't take too long to get started. About four minutes in, Sam Marquardt started the fireworks with a 57-yard run, followed up with a successful two-point conversion.

A minute and 15 seconds later, the ball was back in Titan's hands and back in the end zone, this time courtesy of Lane Whiting, who scored a 45-yard touchdown to take a 15-0 lead.

By the end of the first quarter, Logan Shallow and Josh Kristof scored on runs of 36 and 27 yards, respectively, to widen the lead to 29-0.

Gillett got its first points of the game with 5:50 to go in the second quarter when a fourth-down Titan snap went out the back of the end zone for a safety.

The Lena/STAA special teams unit got back on the right foot a minute and a half later when Marquardt returned a Tigers punt 76 yards for a touchdown.

Just before the half, Marquardt fired a 31-yard touchdown pass to Shallow, his only pass of the game, and he wasn't done on the special teams front either.

He took the opening kickoff of the second half back for a 71-yard touchdown to stretch the lead to 48-2.

Kristof scored his second touchdown of the game with 7:24 in the third, intercepting a Jesse DeBauch pass and returning it 40 yards for a touchdown.

Tyler Shallow scored the final two touchdowns of the game for the Titans, scoring from 33 and 40 yards out in the fourth quarter.

Shallow ran the ball just five times, but scored two touchdowns with 88 yards rushing.

Five different Titans scored touchdowns on an extremely efficient offensive night. In total, Lena/STAA ran just 23 offensive plays, averaging 14.8 yards per play and a touchdown less than every seven plays.

Logan Shallow had 58 rushing yards and 31 receiving yards, scoring a touchdown each way. Kristof ran twice for 34 yards and a score to go with his interception return touchdown and Marquardt had four total touchdowns: one passing, one rushing, one by punt return and one by kick return.

Gillett scored a fourth-quarter touchdown when DeBauch found Ben Matczak and Matczak found the end zone.

DeBauch was 11-for-25 for 133 yards and a touchdown. He had two passes intercepted, with Kristof and Logan Graef intercepting passes.

Gillett wasn't able to find any success running the ball, as 33 Tiger runs went for just 45 yards. DeBauch's seven carries for 25 yards was the best amongst Tiger runners.

Lena/STAA (4-0) travels to Sturgeon Bay to square off with Sevastopol this week. Sevastopol (1-3) lost to Wausaukee, Suring and Florence to start the season before picking up its first win of the season in a 32-8 defeat of Oneida Nation/NEW Lutheran last week.

Gillett (0-4) hosts Gibraltar (1-3) on Friday. Both teams will be looking to break losing streaks, as Gibraltar has lost three in a row after a season-opening win over White Lake/Elcho.



Panthers Ground

Eagles in 38-6 Win


The Oconto Falls Panthers put on a dominant display of football against Menominee Indian on Friday night, winning 36-8.

The Panthers opened the scoring with an 80-yard touchdown from Dylan Thomson in the first quarter. Thomson scored again to make it 14-0 in the second, then Carter Hill found Isaac Raddatz for a 40-yard touchdown to make it 20-0 before halftime.

In the third quarter, Thomson scored his third touchdown of the game, a five-yard rushing score, in the third quarter, stretching the lead to 28-0.

Thomson had the standout stat line of the game, with his 13 rushes going for 209 yards and three touchdowns. He averaged 16.1 yards per attempt.

The Panthers' final points of the game came in the fourth when Hill tossed his second touchdown of the game, a six-yard pass to Raddatz, his second of the game as well.

Menominee Indian got on the board by game's end when Devin Beaulieu-Morgan tossed a 52-yard pass to Bryce Dixon for six. Beaulieu-Morgan finished the game with 271 yards on a 19-for-26 statline.

In total, Menominee Indian passers were 20-for-27 for 309 yards, and the team had 424 total yards of offense, but could only muster eight points against a Panther defense that forced four fumbles and recorded five sacks.

For the Panther defense, Braden Vandermoss, Weston Borkovec, Mitchell Kallies and Alex Haines forced fumbles. Haines had two sacks, while Kallies and Thomson each had one. Jeremy Caldwell and Kody Vorpahl had half a sack apiece

Offensively, Hill was 4-for-5 for 82 yards and two touchdowns to add to Thomson and the Panthers' rushing attack.

Oconto Falls (5-0) hosts a fellow undefeated team, the Coleman Cougars, on Friday.



Big First Half Carries

Laona/Wabeno

Past Wausaukee


A huge first half by quarterback Connor Taylor and Laona/Wabeno put away Wausaukee early in a 48-14 win Friday night.

Laona/Wabeno took a 40-6 lead into the half behind four passing touchdowns from Taylor's arm.

Taylor had two passing touchdowns in the first quarter to Frank Shepard and Adam Seeber, with two more in the second quarter of 32 and 48 yards to Seeber and Carter Janesch, respectively.

Seeber also returned a punt 69 yards for a touchdown in the second.

Wausaukee's lone touchdown in the first half was a Kamden Stumbris 13-yard pass to Connor Schroeder, but Laona/Wabeno dashed any comeback hopes early in the second half, as Carter Janesch returned the opening kick 72 yards for a touchdown to make it 48-6.

Stumbris found Layne Rowley for a 79-yard score for a fourth-quarter consolation score to make the score 48-14.

Stumbris finished 7-for-12 for 102 yards and two touchdowns, also rushing 12 times for 73 yards. Rowley had two catches for 79 yards and a touchdown.

In total, Wausaukee had 223 yards to L/W's 314, but couldn't match the big-play capability of Taylor and the Rebel special teams unit.

Taylor was 6-for-11 for 131 yards and four touchdowns. He also ran seven times for 98 yards.

Seeber caught three passes for 54 yards and two touchdowns, while Janesch and Shepard each had touchdown catches as well.

Wausaukee heads on the road to face Suring this week.
