Coleman Goes 2-0; Remaining Area Team Struggle

Issue Date: October 7, 2020

Cougars Cruise to Win Over Mishicot 30-6

As the saying goes, the best thing about being 1-0 is the opportunity to go 2-0, and that's exactly what the Coleman Cougars did Friday against Mishicot.

The Cougars beat Oconto Falls in week one with a commanding defensive performance and good rushing performance. True to their identity, they picked up right where they left off against Mishicot.

The Cougars allowed just 34 rushing yards and 160 total yards. Offensively, they passed just once in the game, a three-yard completion for a touchdown from Cayden Bintz to Joe Olsen. The rest of their 285 yards came on the ground.

Coleman took a 14-0 lead before the end of the first quarter, though it was cut to 14-6 before half. Mishicot just couldn't get the offensive wheels turning, however, with Coleman getting a touchdown in each of the quarters of the second half to make the final score 30-6.

For Coleman, Owen Kinziger ran 20 times for 139 yards and Tyler Blanchard ran nine times for 80 years.

Kinziger ran for two touchdowns and Cayden Bintz scored one on the ground in addition to his passing touchdown. Coleman completed three two-point conversions in the game.

Will Bieber and Tieg Sadowski intercepted passes for Coleman.

Tomahawk Takes Down Northern Elite

The Tomahawk Hatchets took a solid win over the Northern Elite Predators Saturday afternoon in Niagara 25-8.

Northern Elite struggled to get their offense gears turning all game long with their only score of the night coming early in the first quarter.

"It just feels like there's nothing you can do about it when stuff lke that happens," said Northern Elite Head coach Ben Laarman. "Its life, there are just days when you aren't going to catch a break. It's how you respond to these challenges. Do you let your setback affect you or do you not let it stop your enthusiam and passion. Losses like this will test you."

In fact Northern Elite was the first on the scoreboard and looked like they might take control of the game early. That early score came when Logan Weber passed tho Aiden Colenso for a huge 64 yard teedee along with a two point conversion run by Landon Kalfoken to make it an 8-0 game.

Tomahawk quickly re-sponded with a 17 yard passing TD from Bode Imm to Mason Evans. The point after attempt failed giving the Predators an 8-6 lead.

The Hatchets continued to make their climb to the top in the second quarter with a big 40 yard rush from Logan Bishop which brought the score to the Hatchets side 12-8.

Tomahawk scored once more in each of the remaining two quarters. During the third a pass from Imm to Jake Kaminsky went 24 yards to the end zone while a fourth quarter jaunt by Bishop was carried one yard to break the goal line for Tomahawk who held the 25-8 lead.

"We did keep battling," said Laarman. "These are growing stituations that the boys will learn from. That's the one good thing that I hope comes from this loss. We put togther what we could and battled as hard as we could."

Through the air Tomahawk was led by Imm who passed 125 yards and two TDs on a nine of 18 showing.

On the ground the Hatchets were led by Bishop with 107 yards one nine carries.

Northern Elite saw Weber pass for 64 yards and one TD on one of his two passes while Kalfoken posted 72 yards on 17 carries.

Lena/STAA Take Loss to Sevastopol

The Lena/STAA Titan football team took a loss to the Sevastopol Pioneers last Friday night in area 8-man football action, 40-20.

The big loss saw the Titan's stage a small comeback late in the game, posting 14 unanswered points in the fourth quarter.

The Pioneers went to work on the Titan's early, pushing in 26 points over the first quarter while holding the Titans to six points.

For the Pioneer's Spencer Evenson got things rolling with a seven yard run to set the tone for the 6-0 lead.

Lena/STAA looked as if they were going to go blow for blow with the Pioneers as Sam Marquardt responded with an 18 yard TD run to make it 6-6. But that was all there was in the way of Titan scoring till the fourth quarter.

With six minutes left in the first quarter Cole Dvorak reeled in the 33 yard pass from Jack DeYoung, carrying it to the end zone for a 12-6 lead.

Evenson returned to the end zone in the first frame on an enormous field crossing run which went 94 yards to the 19-6 lead.

Before the Titans could escape the first quarter the Pioneers posted one more score, this one on a pass from DeYoung to Dvorak that went 56 yards to the end zone.

Sevastopol kept the scores coming over the second quarter getting in on an interception touchdown by Frankie Ash that was carried five yards and a pass from DeYoung to Dvorak that went 21 yards to the end zone. After the first half onslaught the Titans were pretty much done for, trailing 40-6.

The Titans did however see a spark in the fourth quarter as the Pioneers started swapping out their starting lineup. Sam Marquardt posted a two yard teedee run while returning a short while later on a 14 yard run to give the Titans a 40-20 final verdict.

"Sevastopol is a very sound team with a lot of talent," said Lena/STAA co-head coach Dale Lange. "We made a couple of mistakes early in the game. They scored, we Scored and them they scored again we drove down but turned the ball over. It looked like it was going to be a shoot out. But we had some miscues and they took advantage of them. One time we stopped them on our 4 and our first play was an interception that they took in for a TD."

Though they trailed by a considerable magi the Titans were able to post some decent number offensively as they ended the night with 318 yards to the Pioneers 458.

Through the air the Pioneers were led by DeYoung who passed for 191 and three TDs on a seven of 13 showing. On the ground Sevastopol's Evensong amassed 206 yards and two TDs on 14 carries.

Lena/STAA saw Marquardt pass for 158 yards on 11 of his 30 passes while also rushing for a team leading 144 yards and three teedees on 24 carries.

North Central Routs Wausaukee

The North Central Football team had absolutely no problems flattening the Wausaukee Rangers on their way to a blow out win 54-6.

The onslaught never stopped for the Rangers who saw their only score ring in during the final seconds of the first half.

North Central wanted no time in putting this game on ice scoring four times in the first quarter. The Rangers could do nothing to stop them from scoring at will. Ian Gorzinski scored the games first TD off a four yard run. Two minutes later Luke Gorzinski scored off a 28 yard rush and returned again when he scored off a 50 yard rush a few minutes later.

North Central's Alex Naser posted the first quarters last score off a 10 yard jaunt across the goal line for the 28-0 lead.

Things just kept getting worse for the Rangers who couldn't stop two more score from being tallied before the half. Luke Gorzinski scored off an 18 yard rush and gain off a 40 yard pass to Carter Eichmeier for the 42-6 lead.

Before Wausaukee could run to the locker room to regroup they found a way to post a score, getting in off a three yard Corey Boesen run.

North Central got two more score before the game was over, one from Gavin Casperson off a five yard rush and another in the fourth quarter off a Wyatt Raab 36 yard sprint.

The score showed a one sided game and the stats bore it out as well as the Rangers only traveled 64 yards over the course of the competition. North central went 434 yards.

Luke Gorzinski passed for 171 yards and one TD off a 10 of 13 performance while Wausaukee's Kamden Stumbris went four yards off one of his two passes.

On the ground Wausaukee's Boesen went 45 yards on 15 carries. Luke Gorzinski got 101 rushing yards and three TDs off six carries.

Peshtigo Falls to Southern Door in Home Opener

Friday's outcome against Southern Door was not what the Peshtigo Bulldogs would have been hoping for to start their 2020 season.

Peshtigo fell 66-12 in its season opener, with Peshtigo's number of suited players narrowly exceeding its points scored.

The Bulldogs suited up 15 players for the game, with 21 total players listed on the roster.

By the end of the first half, the score was 41-0. By the time Peshtigo got on the board, it was 54-0 Southern Door.

"They're the class of our conference. They were young last year. They're loaded," Peshtigo coach Jeff Bayerl said of Southern Door. As for his team, "it is what it is. For whatever reason, only 21 kids came out. We play the hand we're dealt. Our kids had effort all night and you can't fault effort. They did the best they could."

With 10:33 to go in the game, the Bulldogs scored, with Will Boettcher scoring from nine yards out. With 8:40 to go, Peshtigo scored again when Jon Schaut ran in a fumble for a touchdown.

Southern Door would score twice more, but the score was immaterial for Peshtigo.

"We didn't even care about the score," Bayerl said. "At least our kids put out maximum effort and that's all we can ask for. We're young and we'll improve."

The Bulldogs finished with 159 yards of offense, with 120 coming on the ground. Southern Door tallied 432 yards of offense, including 361 running the ball.

"We've got some minor things we can be happy about, but there's a lot of mistakes we've got to clean up, so we'll watch the film and we'll fix them. That's what we do," Bayerl said.

Marine Miscues factor in Loss to Little Chute

There were flashes of the Marines' future in the team's 41-20 loss to Little Chute on Friday, but the Marines couldn't get out of their own way, with two turnovers and a kickoff return touchdown haunting them from the very start.

The game started with a bang, as Nolan Lamers took the opening kickoff 82 yards to the house for the Mustangs. With four minutes left in the first quarter, Little Chute scored again to make it 13-0.

Marinette hung around, with Adam Lemery rushing in from two yards before the end of the first to make it 13-7. After a touchdown pass from Little Chute in the second quarter, Marinette got a special teams touchdown of its own just before the stroke of halftime.

With 14 seconds left in the half, Lemery blocked a punt and returned it 56 yards for a score to cut the lead to seven after a missed extra point.

After the game, Marinette coach Nate Anderson emphasized closing out ball games. Marinette wasn't able to do that Friday, with Little Chute scoring twice in the third to take a 34-13 lead into the fourth.

Brett Whiting caught a 40-yard touchdown pass from Lemery to cut the lead to 14 in the fourth, but it wasn't enough to challenge Little Chute, as the game finished 41-20.

"It just comes down to we have to play better in the second half," Anderson said. "We're trying to change a losing culture here,and the kids have to learn how to finish games, how to play at a high, competitive level every single play. When we play at a high level, we can play with anyone, but we're not consistent enough. We've got some young guys out there. I believe in every one of these guys, they're wanting to get better every day, it's a great group, but we just have to play more consistent at a high level."

Marinette struggled to set up the passing game, with Lemery throwing eight times, completing two for 66 yards, one touchdown and one interception. He ran 20 times for 90 yards as well.

In the end, Marinette just wasn't fast enough to keep up with the Mustangs, with their athleticism showing in the second half on the defensive side of the ball.

"We're outmatched athletically, so that's why we run the system that we do," Anderson said. "We've got to pound it to set up play action. That's what our passing game is. We've got to execute."

They're not there yet, but Anderson is confident his team will get to where they want to be.

"You've got to learn how to finish, you've got to learn how to be a winner and we're figuring it out," he said. "We're going to get there. We'll get there. It might take five years, it might take two years, it might be next week. We're taking steps."
