Peshtigo Stays Undefeated/Gruszynski Leads Rangers Past Titans

Issue Date: September 27, 2018

Nielson/VanVooren Lead Bulldogs Past Blue Devils

The Oconto Blue Devils were no match for the Peshtigo Bulldogs on Friday.

The Bulldogs proved they were the stronger, faster and more physical team from the outset in a 38-19 win.

On the first drive of the game, Peshtigo ran the ball every play, with Nick Nielson capping the drive off with a five-yard touchdown run. More valuable than the six points was what the running game did to open up the pass.

"When they put nine in the box to stop the run, I don't want to say stealing, but if you get the right play called and they execute it, it looks pretty," Bulldogs coach Jeff Bayerl said.

With 3:41 left in the quarter, Nielson hit Mitchell VanVooren for a 34-yard touchdown pass to extend the lead to 13-0.

With less than a minute, Oconto did get seven back on a Bennett Frazer touchdown run to make it 13-7. Then, it was a couple more heavy doses of the Nielson to VanVooren combination.

Half a minute into the second quarter, VanVooren got open again for a 45-yard touchdown. With 5:48 left in the half, he caught a pass and took it 85-yards to the house. All four of his catches on the day went for touchdowns of 30 yards or more, as he grabbed another 40-yarder in the third. He finished with 203 yards on four catches.

Oconto just didn't have the personnel to line up against the 6-foot-5 receiver, who also happens to be a state qualifier in multiple track events.

"We were going to try to stick somebody in his face and hold him up on the line a little bit and slow him up. Again, the problem is we don't have many people that can keep up speed-wise to him," Oconto coach Brian Sohrweide said, "We were just hoping that we'd be in the right place in the right time and knock a pass down or something, but like I said, you can watch on film but you can't tell exactly how fast they are, and then you get on them and it's like "woah, he's a lot faster than we thought.' He's a heck of a talent."

Nielson, who finished 8-11 passing for 281 yards and four passing touchdowns and ran for two more on 20 carries for 108 yards, also deserves some of the praise.

"He's a heck of a runner and then he's got a cannon for an arm and he's got a beautiful touch on that ball," Sohrweide said. "He was laying them in there. What are you going to do?"

Nielson also intercepted a pass with 2:18 to go in the third quarter. Travis Plym had an interception as well.

In the Blue Devils' second half, Luke Krueger returned a fumble three yards for a touchdown in the third and Zach Sherman scored a rushing touchdown but Oconto never threatened to beat the Bulldogs, falling by a 19-point margin.

Oconto came into the game at 1-4, with a young, undersized team. They fought hard, but just didn't have the physical tools to get the job done Friday.

"We left a lot of points out there today. We stalled some drives, whether that's execution or just their kids playing really well," Bayerl said. "I thought their kids played hard. I really did. They've got some weapons."

Frazer finished with 12 rushes for 68 yards and a score. Sherman carried four times for 43 yards and a touchdown.

The Bulldogs are now 6-0 heading into a road matchup with Southern Door at 7 p.m. Friday, but nobody tell Bayerl, who sticks by the mantra that what the team did last week doesn't matter.

"We've still got a lot of things to clean up, but it's nice to be 1-0," Bayerl said Friday night. "We're 0-0 on Monday."



Gruszynski Leads Rangers Past Titans in MONLPC-8 Conference Matchup

The Lena/STAA Titans had a disappointing end to their homecoming week when the Wausaukee Rangers came to town and dominated on the field from start to finish resulting in a final score of 46-12 The Titans had no answers for the Ranger's offense that saw quarterback Tyler Gruszynski throw for four touchdown passes and run for one more score before being knocked out of the game with an ankle injury in the third quarter.

"We knew this would be a tough matchup for us coming in," said Wausaukee coach Grant Russ. "It's always tough to play in someone else's homecoming game. We knew they were going to be fired up and they had an extra week to prepare for us, and they fought hard for 4 quarters. It was a good win for us though, we played well on defense and broke some big plays on offense, and we had great effort from all of our guys."

Wausaukee was led by Gruszynski who completed eight of 11 pass attempts for 301 yards and four TD's, and added 52 yards rushing in 12 attempts. Brandon Shigouri caught three passes for 170 yards and two touchdowns. Christian Shigouri added four catches for 91 receiving yards. Kyle Struve was the leading rusher for the Rangers with 68 yards on 11 attempts.

Lena/STAA wasn't able to put points on the board until late in the third quarter when Colby Borchert took a Logan Shallow pass to the house on the opening play of the drive.

"I thought we did a good job of stopping their running game," said Lena/STAA coach Dale Lange. "We were able to move the ball a little on offense, but we had some trouble cashing in on some opportunities. We also made a few costly mistakes and gave up some big plays through the air, but we did a lot of things well and I saw a lot of positive things to build from."

The Titans were led by Shallow who completed two of eight pass attempts for 70 yards and a touchdown and added 65 yard on the ground in 12 rushes for a TD. Borchert caught one of those passes for 61 yards and a touchdown.

Suring Unable to Quell Wolverine Assault

The Suring Eagles hosted the Crivitz Wolverines Friday night and were completely surprised by the quickness at which the Wolverines turned a tied game into a run away. With the score tied 7-7 early in the second quarter the Wolverines went off like a box of fireworks, scoring 28 over the second quarter and 22 over the third before ending the game ahead 57-14.

Though it was the Wolverines night, it didn't start that way, as Suring quickly found their way to a first quarter score to snag a little early game momentum. Josh Reed took the honors of the night's first teedee, striking from nine yards back off the rush. Logan Stuart's kick was good giving the Eagles their early 7-0 lead.

  But nearly as soon as the second quarter began the Wolverines found themselves tied with the home field Eagles, hitting on a one yard run from Jaden Bemis. Ryley Bemis lined up for the point after and kicked a beautiful goal, straight through the uprights for the 7-0 lead.

A short while later the Wolverines struck again, this time scoring off a seven yard pass from Werner to Eli Lawrence. Chandler Kaldenberg added another teedee literally moments later, reeling in a interception which he carried 31 yards to the end zone.

Werner helped propel his Wolverines to a nice lead before the half with a 20 yard pass to Dawson Andrist for the 28-7 intermission lead.

The third quarter was more of the same as Crivitz's Werner broke loose on a 73 yard rush which found its way into the end zone. The next points were obtained by the defense of the Wolverines who pushed the Eagles back into their own end zone for a safety, it happened when the snap went out the back of the end zone.

Ezekiel Lawrence broke loose on a 12 yard rush for six points while returning to the end zone a short while later this time from 36 yards out.

Before the end of regulation the Eagles were able to post Reed eight yard rushing score.

Passing on the night Werner was awarded 106 yards for his efforts in a six of nine showing.

On the ground Werner piled up 90 yards while Suring's Logan Stuart got 100.

Cougars Run All Over Wolves, Win 35-12

When you've got three running backs who can break out for triple-digit games on any given night, passing the ball isn't quite as important.

That was the case for the Coleman Cougars on Friday, as they used a big ground game to defeat the Algoma Wolves 35-12.

The Cougars ran for 357 yards as a team and didn't complete any of four passing attempts in the game.

Mason Risner scored the team's first three touchdowns, as he scored from 18, 13 and 31 in the first half to carve out a 21-0 lead for the Cougars. Algoma got six back on a touchdown pass before halftime, but Coleman wouldn't let them back in the game.

Jacob Zeitler ran in a one-yard touchdown in the third and Tyler Blanchard made it 35-6 on a 17-yard touchdown run.

Algoma scored six more but it was too little, too late.

Risner rushed 14 times for 149 yards and three scores, Blanchard had 14 rushes for 104 and Zeitler carried 15 times for 104 yards.

Defensively, Zeitler had a sack, three solo tackles and seven assisted tackles. John Bieber had 10 assisted tackles and two solo.

Cougars quarterback Caden Bintz went 0-4 passing with an interception, but he also intercepted a pass on the defensive side of the ball and scored a two-point conversion.

Coleman held Algoma to 80 yards passing and 72 yards rushing.

The Cougars advanced to 4-2 ahead of a matchup with 6-0 Packerland foe Kewaunee at 7 p.m. Friday. Algoma dropped to 1-5.
