M&O Football

Battle of Unbeatens to Decide M&O Title

Special Homecoming

Win for Peshtigo


On a Friday night featuring two M&O teams for Peshtigo's homecoming, one would expect to see plenty of blue and plenty of the visitor's Wausaukee red.  However, it was a different color that took over Bulldog stadium: orange.  Orange represents Leukemia in the cancer awareness ribbons.  One of Peshtigo's own, eighth grader Meghan Harper, was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia.  Plenty of people at the game Friday night, including fans, players and even coaches, wore the color to support Harper and her battle with Leukemia.

As if the Bulldogs, one of the M&O's two unbeaten teams, needed more fuel, they seemed to rally behind the community's support for Harper on their way to a 69-6 win.  Peshtigo scored seven touchdowns in the first half.  Out of those seven, six different people found the end zone. 

Max Neumann hauled in an 18-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Justin Thill to begin the scoring for Peshtigo.  With an 8-0 lead, the Bulldogs' second score of the evening came via a 10-yard touchdown run from Jerod Jandt, making it 14-0.  Thill tossed it to Nick Nielson on a 35-yard pitch-and-catch that made the score 20-0 at the end of the first quarter.

In the second, it was more of the same for the boys in blue.  Neumann and Thill connected for their second touchdown of the night, this one from 24 yards that pushed the lead to 27-0.  Mitchell VanVooren got the Bulldog defense on the board with a 45-yard interception return for a touchdown.  Big brother Jeremy VanVooren would not be outdone as he reeled in a 12-yard touchdown pass from Thill as the lead was extended to 42-0.  Alex Harper's 15-yard punt block and return for a TD made the score 49-0.  Before the half was over, the Peshtigo defense forced a safety making the halftime score 51-0 in favor of the Bulldogs.

Peshtigo tacked on three touchdowns in the second half.  Riley Reif recorded the only score of the third quarter by punching in a one-yard teedee run.  In the fourth quarter, Nick Parrett scored on two runs, one from 33 yards out and the other from 40 yards. 

Wausaukee's lone score came from Kyle Struve as he ran in a TD from 13 yards out in the fourth quarter. 

Justin Thill finished the game 6 of 9 for 118 yards and 4 touchdown passes, while running back Jerod Jandt ran 13 times for 147 yards and a score.  Max Neumann paced the Bulldog wide-outs with three catches for 64 yards and found the end zone twice.

Matthew Delfosse led the way for the Ranger offense with 51 yards on 17 attempts.  Struve added 37 yards and a TD on 16 attempts.

The Peshtigo Bulldogs not only took home a victory on the football field, but more importantly a victory in their hearts with immense community of support for a very brave Meghan Harper.

Coleman Blasts Gillet

in 60-13 Rout


The Coleman Cougars continued their conference win streak last Friday night by defeating the visiting Gilett Tigers, 60-13.

Coleman was dominating in all aspects of the game, pounding out 362 yards on 44 plays. Like many other games this season, a majority of those yards were obtained on the ground where the Cougars piled up 351 yards. 11 yards were added throughout he air.

The Tigers were able to get some offensive gain on the tough Cougars, going 90 yards in the rush game while passing for 46 yards.

Josh Pillath got the ball rolling, or should we say bouncing as he broke into the backfield on a Gillett punt. He blocked the kick and quickly scooped it up for the first teedee of the game. Austin Tachick scored next, busting loose a short while later on a 31 yard score. He then tacked on the two point conversion to give Coleman the 14-0 lead.

Before the first quarter could end Jacob Zeitler furthered the lead with an 8 yard end zone buster.

Tachick continued a great day on the gridiron, scoring first in the second quarter off an 11 yard pass reception from Bryce Karban. Karban scored next on a three yard keeper score followed by Zietler on a 6 yard rushing score. Tachick was able to get in the end zone on both the previous scores' two point conversions.

Donovan Salewski who was also able to pull in a first quarter fumble recovery, posted two defensive points by tackling a Tiger in the Gillett end zone.

Before he was ready to call it a night, Tachick was able to break loose on one more huge run, crossing the goal line on a 43 yard rush along with a two point conversion score.

Gillett's Bo Krueger returned a kickoff in the third quarter, going 65 yards for the first Tiger teedee of the day.

Coleman's Ty Hoffman scored in the fourth off a 65 yard rush which was followed by a Trevor Rinser two point conversion.

Nick Hartwig of the Tigers gave his guys one final score in the fourth on a 30 yard rushing score.

Crivitz Survives

Visting Suring


The Crivitz Wolverines played host to the Suring Eagles last Friday, surfing a second half Eagles comeback to take the win 17-12. With the loss, Suring must defeat Gillett in order to make it to the post season.

The Wolverines were able to post 116 rushing yards on the day while passing for an additional 31 yards for a goal of 147. Slightly better than Suring, who totaled 135 yards with 72 yards coming off the ground game and another 63 from the air.

The Wolverines started the days scoring when Levi Maye-Thomas capped off an excellent drive with a five yard rushing score. Trey Pederson added the extra point kick, giving the Wolverines a 7-0 lead.

Pederson surely did not disappoint the Wolverines fans in attendence, sinking a second quarter field goal from 27 yards back for the 10-0 lead.

After the intermission, Suring quickly responded as John Christensen dropped back on a pass. The Eagles' Mitchell Stegeman ran a streak route down the Suring side line as Christensen let loose a bomb of a pass. Stegeman went up right at the goal line pulling down the pass over a Wolverine defender for the teedee. The two point conversion attempt was unsuccessful, putting Suring behind 10-6.

During the fourth quarter, the Wolverines Seth Kwiatkowski broke into the end zone from two yards out to help clinch the Wolverine win.

But before the game could wrap up, the Eagles Vollmar delivered a comeback dagger by retuning a kickoff 83 yards for the score.

Crivitz ended up hanging onto the the five point lead to take the win.

For the Eagles, Christensen passed for 63 yards on a 5 of 18 performance with one teedee. He also rushed for a team leading 88 yards on 15 carries.

Travis Kudick passed for 17 Wolverine yards on three of his four passes while Kwiatkowski obtained 893 yards on 23 carries.

-Great 8 Football-

Titans Brings the

Thunder on Oneida


In a matchup of two Great 8 North teams Friday night, the Lena/STAA Titans traveled to take on the Oneida Nation Thunderhawks.  The Titans scored early and often on their way to a 60-6 victory. 

It took just 15 seconds for Jake Staidl to find the end zone for Lena/STAA as his 75-yard opening kickoff return put the Titans ahead 8-0.  Later in the first quarter, Hunter Borchert found Tyler Stuart for a 54-yard touchdown pass that extended the lead to 16-0.  On the ensuing kickoff, Oneida's Crimson Powless took the kick 74 yards the other way for a touchdown.  That would be the Thunderhawks' only TD of the night.  At the end of the first it was 16-6, Titans.

Lena/STAA opened the scoring gates in the second quarter.  Austin Lange found daylight and raced 41 yards for the touchdown run, extending the lead to 24-6.  Borchert again found Stuart, this time for 39 yards, adding to the lead, 32-6.  Next, it was Jack Farley's turn as Borchert threw a 27-yard strike to Farley for the TD.   Later, Borchert took matters into his own hands, punching in a one-yard touchdown run.  The score at halftime was 45-6 in favor of the Titans.

Dakota Blasing was the only person to score in the second half, and he found pay dirt twice.  In the third quarter, he ran in the TD from 10 yards out.  Then in the fourth, his 33-yard run would finish the scoring on the night.

Blasing led the way in rushing for the Titans with 65 yards on 5 carries for two touchdowns.  Borchert added 59 yards on the ground on 14 carries while also passing for 190 yards on 5 completions in 7 attempts.  Stuart was the beneficiary of Borchert's accurate passing as his two catches for 93 yards and two scores led Lena/STAA.

Northern Elite Pounds

White Lake Elcho


The Niagara/Goodman/Pembine Northern Elite Predators were able to dominate all facets of the game Friday night as they slammed the visiting White Lake Elcho Wolverines 56-8.

On the day the Predators were able to amass a whopping 460 yards to White Lake/Elcho's 74. Of those yards 123 were gained through the air while the other 337 were pounded out on the ground.

To start the scoring Alex Dumke broke loose for the 29 yard teedee. Landon Kaldor continued the early scoring run, getting in on a 40 yard dash. Before the quarter could expire, Dumke crossed the goal line again this time from 59 yards out.

During the second quarter the Predators went completely berserk. First it was Alex Hagerty who had his number called, getting in on a 60 yard run. Next it was Alex Dumke to Hunter Lenczuk on a 55 yard passing teedee. Then Dumke again, this time form 68 yards.

The defense got its turn to chip into the points total next, pulling down a White Lake ball carrier in the end zone for a safety.

Landen Kaldor scored next, breaking the goal line from 19 yards out before Dumke finished the half with a 18 yard scoring rush to bring the Predators to a 56-0 halftime lead.

On the day, Dumke amassed 123 yards and two teedees on a three of four performance. Dumke also rushed for 169 yards and three touchdowns on nine carries. Hagerty got 65 yards on two carries with a teedee while Kaldor posted 59 yards and two teedee on two carries.
