Bulldogs Get On Winning Track With Victory Over Northern Elite

Issue Date: September 12, 2019

Bulldogs Pull Away From Predators Late for First Win

The Peshtigo Bulldogs are in the win column.

Peshtigo defeated Northern Elite on Friday, though it wasn't easy by any stretch, with the Bulldogs needing a pair of second-half scores to pull away from the Goodman/Pembine/Niagara co-op to 180 yards in a 24-6 win.

Peshtigo struck first, scoring on its first drive courtesy of a Jerod Jandt rushing touchdown from a yard out, with the senior running in for the two-point conversion as well.

That score came with 6:18 to go in the first quarter. Neither team would score in the second quarter, much to the disappointment of the Peshtigo coaching staff.

"The line quit moving their feet, we quit pushing. We thought it was over and that team plays hard," Bulldogs head coach Jeff Bayerl said. "We told them that this team is going to play hard until they run out of gas and when we made them start chasing us, they just ran out of gas, and that was kind of the plan."

It was Northern Elite that scored next, with Elliot Peterson running in from 15 yards early in the third quarter. The two-point conversion failed to keep Peshtigo ahead 8-6 and the Bulldogs counter-punched on the next drive, with Will Boettcher the scorer on a five-yard run. The conversion, a pass from Jandt to Preston Rehwinkel, made it 16-6 in favor of the Bulldogs. Jandt sealed it with a 25-yard running touchdown and another two-point pass to Rehwinkel to seal the 24-6 win.

Late in the game, Northern Elite had trouble running with Peshtigo, with Jandt finding space on the edge and the Bulldogs showing off their speed.

"They just kind of took over physically, I think," Northern Elite coach Ben Laarman said. "They wore us down with their physicality. It's frustrating."

Those two conversions were the only thing resembling a passing game for either side Friday, with Jandt and Peterson combining to go 0-for-9 passing with one interception (Mitchell Peters off Peterson) on the night.

Jandt would run 21 times for 138 yards and two touchdowns, with Boettcher adding 14 tries for 92 yards and a score.

Andrew Niven ran the ball 19 times for 134 yards to lead Northern Elite.

"He's our most explosive player, so it was good to get him loose on some runs," Laarman said. Unfortunately, the team couldn't string drives together to put up more points, namely stalling out twice in the red zone.

"It's a bit frustrating we can't break the really big ones. We talked about that before the game. It's tough in high school football to have those long drives without shooting yourself in the foot and we shot ourselves in the foot too often."

Peshtigo faces Crandon on the road Friday. Crandon is coming off a 12-0 loss to Oconto. Northern Elite is off Friday due to Sturgeon Bay's dropping to 8-man football for the season, giving Northern Elite and the rest of the teams on the Clippers' schedule forfeit wins.
