M&O Now a Two-Horse Race

Bulldogs Perform

Aerial Assault on Eagles

Peshtigo created some separation between the top of the conference and everyone else Friday night.  With a win from Coleman over Wausaukee, the unbeaten Bulldogs had to beat the 3-1 Eagles to remain tied for first with Coleman.

A healthy dose of Justin Thill, Dalton Keller and Jerod Jandt will have the Eagles feeling blue all week.  Peshtigo recorded the only score of the first quarter when Thill connected with Keller on a 7-yard pitch-and-catch.  The extra point gave the Bulldogs a 7-0 lead.

In the second quarter, Thill scampered for a 9-yard touchdown that extended the lead to 13-0.  Keller and Thill hooked up again in the second quarter, this time from 9-yards out, pushing the Peshtigo lead to 19-0.

Suring answered with the final score of the half as Brett Belongia punched in a 3-yard touchdown run.  John Christensen connected with Mitchell Stegeman for the two-point conversion that trimmed the lead to 19-8 at halftime.

In the third quarter, the Bulldogs came out with a vengeance.  Peshtigo scored 26 unanswered points to break the game wide open.  Jandt did the early damage scoring two times, once from 9 yards out and the other from 15 yards out.  Then, it was the Thill to Keller show performing acts three and four.  Thill launched a 54-yard bomb to Keller that found pay dirt.  The two connected on an 18-yard score later in the quarter for their fourth TD of the game.  At the end of the third quarter, Peshtigo opened up a 45-8 lead.

Austin Liske put the exclamation point on the game for the Bulldogs in the fourth quarter by punching in a one-yard run that finished the scoring on the evening.  Peshtigo won 51-8. 

Thill complete 12 of 22 passes for 158 and 4 TD's, all of which were to Keller.  Keller hauled in five catches for 93 yards.  Jandt led the rushing attack with 262 yards on 31 carries and two scores for Peshtigo.

Christensen finished 3 of 9 for 16 yards and two interceptions for the Eagles.  Christensen also paced the rushing attack with 17 yards on five carries.  Cody Smith's two catches for 15 yards were tops for the Suring receivers.



Cougars Run

Wild on Rangers

The Coleman Cougars, who are in contention for the M&O penthouse, faced off with the cellar dwelling Wausaukee Rangers last Friday in Wausaukee, quickly blasting their way to three first quarter scores to propel them to the 54-6 victory.

Wausaukee did throw one good drive into the mix, scoring their only touchdown during the third quarter when Matthew Delfosse hit Dustin Westpahl for the 10 yard touchdown reception.

With a score like this, it shouldn't be surprising that the stat sheets were as lopsided as a 15 year old football. The Cougars eclipsed 300 yards on the day, obtaining 289 on the ground along with 19 through the air. The Rangers, only 55 through the ground game and 38 through the air.

Jacob Zeitler led the Coleman ground and pound game with 107 yards on six carries while Mason Risner chipped in 57 on four.

Bryce Karban was two for two through the air with 19 yards and a teedee.

The Ranger's Delfosse completed 8 of his 13 passes for 56 yards and one teedee while Kyle Struve led the ground attack with 30 yards on 11 carries.

The Rangers started their day off with a three and out, which was followed by the Cougars with a four play scoring drive that was keyed by 10 yard gainers by Austin Tachick, Zeitler and Jake Baldwin. Gunnar Patz hauled in the 10 yard touchdown pass to give the Cougars the early lead. Zeitler punched in the two point conversion run making it 8-0.

After a second three and out, the Cougars were again quick to score as Zeitler carried the ball to the 15 yard line off a 14 yard run. He capped the drive off two plays later on a four yard line buster which was followed by a pass to Zeitler from Karban for the two point conversion.

Again the Rangers were forced to a three and out. At this point the Cougars really started picking up speed, employing a two play drive for their third teedee of the night. On the first play of the drive, Zeitler busted off a 35 yard rush bringing his Cougars to the one yard line. Finishing what he started, Zeitler broke into the end zone for the 22 point lead. Tachick posted two points off the conversion making it 24-0.

On the Rangers next drive, the guys in Red and White finally managed to get a first down thanks to a Delfosse to Jack Lacount 11 yard pass reception. After the first down, the Wausaukee offense stalled out failing to convert on the fourth and two attempt.

Taking over on the Rangers' 46 yard line, the Cougars again found some big gains as Zeilter started things off with an 11 yard run. He was followed by Karban on a 13 yard gainer and Tachick on a 28 yard rush that brought the Cougars to the two yard line. Zeitler finished off the drive with the short teedee. Karban added the two point off the ground to give Coleman a huge second quarter lead, 32-0.

The Cougars forced the Rangers to a turnover on downs on the next possession, and scored two plays later thanks to two Zeitler rushes. The first a 24 yard gainer and the second a 14 yard goalie crosser.

The Rangers were able to generate a turnover on the next Coleman possession as Karban fumbled the ball at the Coleman 26 yard line. With a short field to overcome, the Rangers ensured they would not be shutout as Kyle Struve kept the drive alive on a 10 yard rush which was followed four plays later by a Delfosse to Dustin Westpahl 10 yard touchdown reception.

Coleman added two more teedees before the game ended. One in the third off a 30 yard Risner run and the final of the night off a Billy Ganter four yard end zone visit to bring the Cougars to the 54-6 final.
