Bulldogs Hold Off Bears; Coleman Tops Crivitz

Issue Date: August 29, 2018

Bulldogs Hold on to

Beat Bears 28-26


After falling behind 14-0 in the first quarter against Bonduel, the Peshtigo Bulldogs overcame some adversity to top the Bears 28-26.

Riddik Bohm had two touchdown runs for Bonduel to give them the early lead, but Jerod Jandt led the Bulldogs back.

He ran in touchdowns from six and two to give the team a 15-14 lead, running in one two-point conversion himself.

Jandt finished with 120 yards passing on 7-for-11, with 159 yards rushing on 31 tries.

He then threw a five-yard touchdown to Mitchell VanVooren to extend the lead to eight. That wouldn't be it for adversity, however.

Early in the third, the Bulldogs went on a 95-yard drive, but couldn't punch the ball in for six.

"I think if we could have finished that drive with a touchdown, I think we put them away early," Bulldogs coach Jeff Bayerl said. "I think they would have folded, because we were dominating them on the line of scrimmage. We were moving. The offensive line really came off the ball and they did their jobs."

Isaac Banker scored a touchdown for the Bears to cut the lead to two and Bohm found daylight for a 35-yard Bears touchdown to give the team a 26-22 lead.

The first time Peshtigo needed a comeback, Jandt was the man for the job, but after he went down with an injury, it was time for the next man to step up.

Nick Nielson got the call. He rushed 22 times for 87 yards with Jandt out, including a two-yard touchdown run, where he stepped up in the pocket and wheeled around for the score to give the Bulldogs a 28-26 lead late in the game.

"Nick stepped in and did what Nick does," Bayerl said. "He came in and did his thing. He basically made a play to win the game for us."

Bonduel drove down the field for a game-winning field goal try, but the Bears kicker pushed it wide right from the left hashmark.

"[That] is a tough angle for a right-footed kicker and he just pushed it wide right," Bayerl said. "The kid had plenty of leg, but sometimes you just get lucky."

Both teams had exactly 380 yards in what was a very evenly-matched game.

"That was kind of even as it gets," Bayerl said. "It was just a good football game between two good football teams."

The Peshtigo defense may have allowed 328 yards on the ground, but they at least held Bonduel's passing game at bay. The week before, Bonduel threw for 359 yards against Coleman, but it tallied only 52 yards passing, with Parker Bohm completing just five of 18 tosses with an interception.

"We went into the game hoping to limit their passing game. We bent but we didn't really break," Bayerl said. "We had a couple nice turnovers at opportune times."

Offensively, for the Bulldogs, Nielson may have to take on some more of the responsibility, but things should stay mostly the same.

As Bayerl tells people, "We are what we are, we do what we do, and we have what we have. If we all do our jobs, we're going to be just fine."

Peshtigo (2-0) welcomes Sturgeon Bay to town next weekend. The Clippers are 0-2 with two 40-plus point losses so far.



Coleman's Ground

Game Too Much

for Crivitz


Coming off a season-opening loss, the Coleman Cougars were looking to right the ship against old M&O foe Crivitz. They did just that, winning 48-19 on the road.

The Wolverines topped Coleman 42-14 last season, but Friday's game was the polar opposite, as Coleman dominated the second half.

"It was definitely revenge," Cougars running back Jacob Zeitler said. "They came in last year and kicked our butts, to be honest, but then we gave it back to them."

It wasn't a four-quarter onslaught, however. The Cougars led just 14-13 at halftime.

A 68-yard touchdown run from Wolverines quarterback Jaden Werner made things 8-7 in the first half, with Blake Forner scoring the Cougars' second touchdown in the game to get them to 14 before the break.

Tony Jopek cut the tally to 14-13 before the halftime whistle. For the Wolverines, there were quite a few positives in the first half.

"I was proud in the first half," coach Matt Nernier said. "We kept it close and there were definitely some glimpses of what our offense can do when we open up and run things correctly and read things right. I was happy with that part."

Zeitler really got going in the second half, as he scored on a nine-yard touchdown to extend the lead.

Following a fumble on the ensuing kickoff, Coleman's Cayden Bintz added a 23 yard scoring run just a minute later to make it 28 for the Cougars.

Zeitler rushed 17 times for 209 carries and two touchdowns in the game. He gave the credit to his offensive line.

"Phenomenal," he said, describing the Coleman line play. "Best ever."

The Cougars finished with 494 yards as a team. The team's running game exploded in the second half, perhaps because of what was said at halftime.

"In the first half, we thought our backs and our tight end could give us a little more at the point of attack, so we challenged them at halftime to be more aggressive and be a bigger part of the run game as blockers and they took it to heart," Cougars coach Jeff Bronson said. "You could see it in their effort in the blocking and it kind of carried over to everyone else. Even when they made cuts, they were a little sharper or more decisive and they were a little more mentally ready to go."

Coleman (1-1) takes on Northern Elite next weekend, while Crivitz meets Three Lakes/Phelps.

For Crivitz they'll turn their attention to the M&O Conference and getting to playoff eligibility.

"Our goal is now to make the playoffs," Bernier said. "Opening up conference next week, we've got to get better every day and take one win in conference at a time until we can get ourselves eligible for the playoffs and see where we are in the conference race."



Suring Falls One

Score Short of

Three Lakes


The Suring Eagles were handed a tight 40-34 loss Friday night in Suring as the visiting Three Lakes team employed a strong rushing attack on their way to the win.

Three Lakes took the initiative during the first half, entering the intermission ahead 14-0.

That lead was surmounted by the Eagles with a huge fourth quarter that saw the Eagles score 34 points. Good enough to send the game into overtime which was taken by Three Lakes

Three Lakes' Corwin Schroeder racked up 223 rushing yards on 32 carries with three touchdowns.

Suring states were not available.



Northern Elite Suffer

Early Season Loss


Northland Pines took a 48-20 win over the Northern Elite Predators.

Northland Pines raced to an early lead which Northern Elite just couldn't find a way back from, 32 points was the first quarter tally and Northern Elite was sent reeling.

Pines added eight more during the second half for a 40-0 intermission lead.

The Predators came back a little over the third quarter with a 20 point push but it was all they could muster as a 0-0 fourth quarter spelled defeat for the Predators.

Passing was a part of this game as only one was attempted all game by either team.

Rushing on the other hand was were it was at. Ryan Peterson rushed for 150 Northland yards while Landen Kaldor led the Predators with 53 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries.



Sevastopol Slaps

Wausaukee with

Debilitating Loss


The Wausaukee Rangers could not stem the tide of Pioneers that battled their way across mid field to new lands last Friday as the invading Sevastopol forces obliterated the Ranger resistance 36-0.

The Pioneers got a nice push early on as their Spencer Evanston broke lose on a 46 yard run and score.

During the second quarter that lead was fortified with a four yard Nathan Stenzel running touchdown and another teedee by Stenzel, this time through the air to Max Kohn, from eight yards out.

A 54 yard passing score and as 45 yard toss to Logan Bayer resulted in two more Pioneer scores leaving Wausaukee looking at a very lopsided scoreboard as the time ran down.

Through the air Wausaukee's Hayden Renikow posted 40 yards on a four of 13 perfromance while Sevastopol's Stenzel amassed 175 yards on aerial, bombardments with three teedees to boot. He completed the day nine of 11.

The Ranger rushing attack was led by Kyle Struve who got 30 yards on 15 attempts. The Pioneers' Stenzel led the way with 71 yards off 14 carries.



Gillett Goes Long

on Menominee Indian


The Gillett Tigers certainly had all the equipment needed to build a massive tally Friday night as they defeated the Menominee Indian football team 70-12.

Gillett ripped the game wide open over the first quarter and never looked back, in fact they never slowed down either.

Starting the score in the first inning, Gillett employed a balanced attack, hit both the ground and the air for significant gain.

The first score was prodouced off a run by Anthony Carroll who found a way through he defense for a 61 yard teedee jaunt.

The next score was through the air as Brock Herzog connected with Bo Kreuger for the 35 yard score.

Herzog hit again soon after with a completed pass to Sam Lemens from 24 yards out.

The final score of the opening frame came off the legs of Krueger who carried for 38 yards before breaking the goal line.

Krueger tagged on another touchdown over the second, this time breaking into the end zone from 73 yards back. The longest score from the line of scrimmage all evening.

Menominee Indian got on the board late in the second with a 14 yard passing touchdown to Adrian Waupoose.

A 55 yard scamper and score by Krueger eneded the half's scoring with Gillett way ahead 48-6.

Kruger was just warming up though as he added two more touchdowns to his tally over the third. The first a 67 yarder while the second hit the end zone after a 10 yard sprint.

Before the evening was over Krueger tacked on a final 30 yard runner for the 70 point tally.

Herzog amassed 59 yards through the airfare there Tigers on a two of two performance with two touchdowns while Menominee Indians Pasen Waupooose got 14 yards on six of his 14 passes for one touchdown.

On the ground the Tiger's Krueger piled up an overwhelming 301 yards on a mere 12 carries, thats 25.1 yards a carry. Her also scored seven teedees. For the Eagles Pasen Waupoose got 70 yards on 20 carries.



Bobcats Take Down

Titans with

Great Defense


The Florence Bobcats came to Lena and took care of business on Friday, Aug. 24, defeating the Lena/St. Thomas Aquinas Academy Titans by a score of 44-0.

With 9:31 left in the first, the Bobcats cracked things open, as Toby Wheeler fired a 39-yard score to Gary Liebergen.

Just 10 seconds later, after a fumble on the kick return, the Bobcats got a three-yard run by Joseph Walstrom.

Later in the first, Eric DeCremer scored from six yards out to make the lead 20-0 with 3:25 left in the quarter.

In the second, Wheeler scored and DeCremer scored the two-point conversion with 9:53 to go in the half, making it 28-0 at the break.

With 5:06 in the third, Walstrom scored again and Wheeler capped things off with a 11-yard run. Wheeler had eight runs for 92 yards and went 2-for-3 passing the ball. Walstrom ran 15 times for 115 yards, as the Bobcats finished with 294 rushing yards to Lena/STAA's 22.

Trenton Telford led the Titans with 11 rushes for 27 yards. The team had 35 yards on 33 offensive plays, while the Bobcats had 370 on 43 plays.

"Florence has a small-in-numbers team, but a very sound team," Titans coach Dale Lange said. "We came out flat and just couldn't get things on track. I hope it is a good learning experience for our younger players."

Lena/STAA (1-1) faces Gillett next week.

"It is a short week for us and we need to get back to basics and be ready for a very good opponent in Gillett," Lange said.



Oconto Comes Up Short

Against Rosholt


The Oconto Blue Devils fell to Rosholt on Friday by the score of 35-12.

After both teams were held scoreless in the first quarter, Rosholt opened things up with two touchdown runs in the second quarter, one from four yards out by quarterback Matt LeVene and one from Connor Jacoby.

Oconto scored first in the third quarter to bring things back to 14-6, as quarterback Zach Sherman fired a seven-yard touchdown pass to Devin Reinhardt.

Rosholt would score twice in the quarter, however. Jacoby ran in from four yards out and Roncalli ran back a fumble for a 15-yard touchdown.

Zach Sherman scored a touchdown on a three-yard run in the fourth, but LeVene threw an 80-yard touchdown to seal the game 35-12.

Sherman ended the day 6-for-15 passing for 37 yards, a touchdown, and an interception. Eddie Russell ran nine times for 50 yards, Sherman ran 14 times for 47 yards and a touchdown and Bennett Frazer ran four times for 27 yards.

Reinhardt had two grabs for 25 yards and a touchdown.

The Blue Devils had three fumbles and an interception.
