M&O Football

Coleman Wins Battle of Unbeatens

Suring Starts with a

Flash, Coleman

Ends with a Bang


Before the opening kick off at Coleman's Jim Douglas Field Friday night, three teams remained undefeated in M&O play, Suring, Coleman and Peshtigo. After four quarters of football, only two remain. They being the Coleman Cougars and Peshtigo Bulldogs. The Suring Eagles, dropped by the Cougars in a 48-6 rout.

"It was a much better effort tonight, we played with a sense of urgency that we didn't have last week," said Coleman Head Coach Jeff Bronson. "There was passion out there tonight . Our O-line played better and Zeitler really gave us that push we needed, but it was a nice group effort, that's what our offense is supposed to look like."

The score and stat sheets show an absolute rout with the Cougars holding the extreme edge in total yardage 411 to 53 yards. Both teams ran 48 plays. Of Suring's 53 yards, 43 were gained through the air.

The turnover battle was a draw as the Cougars lost three fumbles and the Eagles three interceptions, one of which was pulled down by one of the big boys upfront, Donovan Salewski.

After the opening kick off, the Cougars only needed four plays to get on the board as speedster Jake Baldwin broke loose on a 47 yard rush. Zeitler capped the drive off with the two point conversion rush.

On the following kickoff, the Eagles Cody Smith found daylight going all the way down to the two yard line before being run down by Josh Pillath.

"We competed for the most part," said Suring Head Coach Mitch Taylor. "But up front they beat us to the punch, they were really quick tonight. The Cougars always bring it al the time and to overcome that we need to be methodical all the time."

Cody Smith finished the job on the next play to bring the Eagles to an 8-6 deficit.

At this point the game looked like it may just turn into a shootout, but as time progressed it became evident that only one side had ammo.

Jordan Blanchard got things moving on the next Coleman drive, starting things off with a 35 yard rush while Austin Tachick finished the drive four plays later on an 11 yard teedee scamper. After a failed two point conversion, the Cougars were ahead 14-6. Suring's next drive ended early when Pillath stepped in on a John Christensen pass, pulling in the interception which he carried to the Suring 14 yard line.

On the very next play the Cougars punched it in thanks to Tachick who split a seam up the middle, diving for the score. Blanchard hauled in the Bryce Karban pass for the two point conversion and the 22-6 lead.

Suring's next possession was ended in three and the Cougars next drive stalled on their own 32 yard line.

After the Coleman punt, Suring took control on their own 36 yard line. On second down with seven yards to go for the first, Suring's Christensen looked to pass. But before the screen pass could reach the open receiver, Coleman's Donovan Salewski closed the door, pulling down the Cougars second interception of the night, which he carried about eight yards before being dragged down by multiple Eagle offensive linemen.

"Donovan has always read the inside screen well, ever since he was a freshman," said Bronson. "It's nice to see him rewarded, he has a great year so far and has done a lot of leadership things on and off the field."

But a short field wouldn't be enough for the Cougars on this drive, as Karban's pass fell short to intended receiver Gunnar Patz for a turnover on downs.

After a three and out by the Eagles, the Cougars made up for the fourth down miss cue by plugging out a a five play three first down drive that was capped by Blanchard on a ten yard end zone jaunt.

On the ensuing Eagles drive, the guys from Suring were facing a second and 10 on their own 46 yard line when Gunnar Patz exploded into the back field for a 10 yard sack loss. Unable to recover from the long field, the Eagles were forced to punt two plays later.

"Gunnar is one of our seniors that really took the lack off passion from last week's game to heart, and looked to make a positive change," said Bronson.

After a short punt, the Cougars took only two plays to increase the lead. On the second play of the drive, Zeitler took the hand off and made one cut before he was off to the races for the 20 yard teedee. The score brought the Cougars to a 34-6 score which held till halftime.

After Suring received the second half kick, it looked as if they might have found a crease in the Cougar defensive. But that crease soon disappeared as Tachick pulled in a Christensen pass which he brought to the Coleman 44 yard line.

"We had our chances, dropped passes, interceptions and miscues really cost. Against a team like Coleman you can't make many mistakes if any," said Taylor.

The ensuing Coleman drive was cut short when a fumble was recovered by an Eagle on the 18 yard line.

Suring finally got the wheels turning on the next drive, moving the ball 30 of their total yards before getting stuffed near the 50 yard by Patz on another hard hitting sack. Patz's contact with Christensen during the sac caused him to loose his helmet.

After receiving the Suring punt, the Cougars coughed the ball up on the first play of their drive, giving the ball back to the Eagles on the Suring 44 yard line.

The fumble failed to give the Eagles the momentum needed, as the Cougar defensive unit forced the turnover on downs.

With nine minutes left in the fourth quarter the Cougars tacked on another score, this time thanks to a Baldwin 33 yard counter trap run, which saw Baldwin go untouched to the score and the 40-6 lead.

"Baldwin is quick," said Bronson. "That's the nice thing about the inside trap. We had them worrying about the outside-outside, and the beauty of the Wing-T is you take what ever they give you and they opened the inside up for us, its the best we blocked inside trap all year."

Baldwin nearly replicated the run on the following Coleman drive, crossing in on the same play from 31 yards out to bring the game to its final score 48-6.



Bulldogs Take the

Wolverines to the Pound


In a battle of beaten versus unbeaten, the Crivitz Wolverines traveled to Peshtigo to take on the Bulldogs Friday night. Peshtigo's defense has been a mainstay all season and was no slouch against Crivitz. Every Wolverine possession ended in a punt, whereas the Bulldogs crossed the goal line seven times, including their first three drives.

Peshtigo's Justin Thill continued his hot streak by connecting with Dalton Keller for a 25-yard catch-and-run to the end zone. Aiden Bohaczek's extra point was good and the Bulldogs went up 7-0. After a Crivitz punt, Peshtigo put together a five-play, 44-yard touchdown drive capped off by Jerod Jandt's 1-yard teedee run. Bohaczek made the score 14-0.

Before the first quarter was finished, the Bulldogs scored their third touchdown of the game. The speedster Jandt ran the ball 36 yards to the end zone, Bohaczek stayed perfect, increasing the lead to 21-0.

In the second quarter, Dakota Heckel joined in on the fun for Peshtigo as he scampered 28 yards for the score. The extra point pushed the score to 28-0.

Peshtigo's quarterback depth was showcased just before half-time as Riley Reif passed to Jeremy VanVooren for a 37-yard pitch-and-catch that ended in six points. The Bulldogs took a 35-0 lead into the intermission after another Bohaczek extra point.

Coming out of the break, on Peshtigo's first possession, Max Neumann hauled in a Thill pass that went 27 yards for the score giving the Bulldogs a 42-0 lead.

On their next possession, another new member of the Bulldog brigade rumbled into the end zone as Alex Harper took the handoff and capped off a 10-play drive with a 3-yard touchdown. Peshtigo led 49-0 at the end of the third.

The only score of the fourth quarter came when Bohaczek finished an 11-play drive with a successful 36-yard field goal that pushed the lead to 52-0. The Bulldogs would win the game by the same score advancing to 4-0 in the M&O.

Justin Thill finished the game with 143 yard, two touchdowns and an interception on 11 of 19 passing. Dalton Keller was the beneficiary of Thill's throws as he hauled in five catches for 65 yards and a touchdown. Jerod Jandt paced the ground attack for the Bulldogs with 158 yards and two scores.

Crivitz totaled just 27 yards of offense, all of them coming through the air as Travis Kudick finished 3 of 5 for 27 yards.



Wausaukee gets Back

on Track with

Win Over Gillett


The Wausaukee Rangers and the Gillett Tigers faced off for a Friday night football showdown in Wausaukee, with the Rangers coming out on top 30-7.

It was a night of opposite strategies when it came to moving the ball. The Rangers stuck to their ground and pound, as Matthew Delfosse blasted his way to 147 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries, along with Tony Rollo who bruised his way to 108 yards and two scores on 14 carries.

The Tigers turned to their airmail weapons as quarterback Grant Sexton completed 15 of his 33 attempts for 150 yards and one teedee.

After a scoreless first quarter, the Rangers opened the second with a seven yard end zone burst by Delfosse, which was followed up with a two point conversion pass from Delfosse to Dustin Westphal.
