Coleman & Menominee Get Shutout Wins

Issue Date: October 21, 2020

Cougars Cruise to Conference Win Over Blue Devils

The Coleman Cougars did what they do on Friday, running the ball with ease and playing stifling defense, leading them to a 40-0 win.

At the end of the first quarter, things were all knotted up, but Coleman started to get things going early in the second, with two reverse plays going for big yardage and Tyler Blanchard punching in from three yards out to take the lead, 6-0.

With 6:45 left in the first, a touchdown pass to Tieg Sadowski made it 14-0 after a two-point conversion. By halftime, the score was 22-0 after an interception and a short run by Blanchard.

The Cougars did little to help Oconto back into the game in the second half, scoring three more touchdowns and forcing two turnovers to run away with the game.

Owen Kinziger finished with 76 yards to lead Coleman and Blanchard had 68 yards on the ground. Blanchard scored twice and Kinziger scored twice. Peter Kuchta also scored on a 40-yard run.

Coleman coach Jeff Bronson said he "couldn't complement our halfbacks enough" for their blocking performance on the day to spring the team's running backs free for big runs.

Sadowski caught all four of quarterback Cayden Bintz's completed passes for 76 yards.

Again, however, it was the Coleman defense that stood out, with two interceptions, one by Bintz and the second by Trent Mongin, and two fumbles recovered.

"Our defense played well out there. Our defensive backs were right where they needed to be and did a nice job taking away some of the routes they wanted, which led to interceptions and our front four played pretty well tonight," Bronson said, adding that the Cougars have covered the pass better at the start of the season than in seasons past. Oconto was held to 113 total yards. The Blue Devils gained 72 yards on the ground and 41 through the air. Caleb Moe went 5 for 12 passing. Luke Krueger caught one ball for 14 yards and Alex Fuller hauled in one pass for 12 yards to lead Oconto.

Menominee Cruises to Shutout Victory Over Gladstone

When your defense performs like Menominee's did Friday, you won't lose many games.

The Maroons defeated Gladstone by a 41-0 scoreline, as Gladstone couldn't get anything going offensively, putting up 229 yards rushing with an 0-for-9 stat line for its passers on the night.

Menominee took the lead on its first drive of the game, going 65 yards, capped off with a seven-yard touchdown run by Aidan Bellisle.

The score remained at 7-0 until Jonathon Spegel took the handoff and went 26 yards for the score to cap off another 63-yard drive. By halftime, things got out of control for Gladstone, falling down 28-0 after a touchdown run by Bellisle from two yards out and a 37-yard touchdown pass from Joseph Romero-Haire to Brady Schultz.

Romero-Haire threw a touchdown pass to Bellisle with 11 seconds remaining in the first half to put the Maroons up 34-0. Romero-Haire capped off the Menominee scoring with a two-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter.

Menominee coach Jamie Schomer said he thought it would be a battle with Gladstone after watching film, but his team was "ready to play" after conversations about the importance of the game, the playoffs and picking team captains for the season.

Bellisle finished with 24 carries for 121 yards and two scores.

"Aidan is a very gifted athlete. We try to get him the ball and we try to spread it around as much as possible," Schomer said, adding that his team found the "weak spots" in the Gladstone defense with strong runs from Bellisle and a couple good long balls from Romero-Haire.

Romero-Haire ran eight times for 28 yards and Spegel had six carries for 48.

Romero-Haire was 3-of-7 passing for 99 yards and two touchdowns.

Of course, the defense deserves some credit as well for pitching a shutout on the night.

"It's nice to see a shutout," Schomer said. "We made a wall up front. That was kind of our goal, we knew they were going to come right at us."

Lena/STAA Posts Win Over Gillett

The Lena/St. Thomas Aquinas Titans posted a resounding 50-0 win over the Gillett Tigers Thursday in Gillett.

The win saw the Titans dominate from start to finish with a wave of points crashing in over the first half.

The first quarter saw the Titans get 20 points while the second quarter brought another 22 points.

Starting the scoring for there Titans was Sam Marquardt who returned a 75 yard kickoff for the 6-0 lead.

Next was Ethan Russell who posted a 16 yard rushing TD a short while later. Marquardt tallied up two points on the defensive side with a safety which was followed by Jake Belongia with a 20 yard pass reception from Marquardt that ended in paydirt.

Starting the second quarter with a 20 point lead the Titans continued to increase their lead. Logan Shallow busted into the end zone on a two yard rush while Lane Whiting got into the end zone a short while later off a 32 yard pass from Shallow.

Before the end of the half Shallow scored one more time, getting in off a 46 yard punt return.

After the half the Titans scored one more teedee in the third quarter, this one a Shallow 30 yard rush.

"We came out with good intensity right from the start of the game," Lena/STAA co-head coach Dale Lange. "We took the opening kickoff all the way and they our Defense showed up, stopping Gillett several times. We will need to come with the same intensity and energy next week against Wausaukee who defeated us the first week. To make a game we will have to clean up the penalties and mistakes."

On the ground for the Titans Shallow produced 66 yards and two TDs on eight carries while Russell posted 23 yards and on TD on five carries. Though the air the Titans' Shallow completed one of his one passes for 32 yards and one TD while Marquardt got 20 yards off his one pass for a TD as well.

Gillett posted negative yards on the ground game while Andy Lemens got 13 yards off one pass.

Wolverines Get Handed Loss by Falcons

The Crivitz Wolverines took on the Abbotsford Falcons last Friday and were given a 36-13 loss.

The loss saw Abbotsford get an early lead in the first quarter as Mason Wellman carried the ball on a three yard scoring rush.

The Falcons scored again off a Preston Bunkleman one yard rush to give themselves the 12-0 lead before scoring again off a Mason Carpenter 58 yards rush.

Before the end of the first half the Wolverines got on the scoreboard thanks to a 65 yard pass from Eian Baumann to Tegan Werner.

Crivitz was able to return fire with another score, this one a seven yard Werner rush before the Falcons stepped up the tempo for two more scores.

After the Wolverine score the Falcons' Carpenter returned a kickoff. The fourth quarter saw the Falcons score the last point of the night getting in off a Carpenter two yard rush.

Carpenter led the Falcon ground attack with 73 yards and two TDs off eight carries while Cade Faber passed for 34 yards off his one pass attempt.

For the Wolverines Baumann rushed for 51 yards off 14 carries while passing for 80 yards and one TD off one of his three passes.

Marines Move the Ball on Offense But Fall to Hawks 48-27

The Marinette Marines dropped to 0-4 after a 48-27 loss to Shawano on Friday.

The Marines put up yards, but the points just didn't come as easily as they did for Shawano, who put up big plays and big numbers on the scoreboard.

Marinette took a 7-0 lead on a 28-yard run from Brett Whiting, but Shawano didn't mess around in the rest of the first half. Elliot Lowney returned the ensuing kickoff for an 86-yard touchdown, then he threw a 66-yard touchdown pass to Gage Timm later in the quarter. Kadin Ihrcke made it 19-7 by the end of the first.

In the second half, Whiting clawed Marinette six points closer with a 22-yard touchdown run, but again Shawano matched it and then some, with Ihrcke running one in again and Lowney tossing a 32-yard touchdown pass to Timm.

Shawano would make it 40-13 in the third. Whiting added a 66-yard touchdown run later in the quarter and Adam Lemery ran one in from two yards out in the fourth, but the writing was on the wall. The game ended 48-27.

Whiting's three touchdowns came on just six carries. Lemery ran 21 times for 117 yards. He threw 11 times, completing four with one interception.

Marinette had 303 yards in the game to Shawano's 395.

Bulldogs Fall to Bears 45-20

The Peshtigo Bulldogs fell to Bonduel 45-20 Friday, but that score won't matter much to the Peshtigo coaching staff.

With as young a team as the Bulldogs have had in recent memory and even lower numbers than usual due to COVID-19, Peshtigo saw signs of life Friday after a huge loss to Southern Door in week one.

Peshtigo fell behind early, with the opening kickoff going 80 yards for a score. A touchdown run made it 12-0, but Peshtigo stayed in it with a 25-yard touchdown pass from Will Boettcher to Preston Rehwinkel. The two-point conversion on a Boettcher run made it 12-8.

Peshtigo got the ball back with a chance to take the lead and had things trending into the Bonduel half, but a 72-yard interception return for a touchdown turned the tide right around. A Bonduel 37 yard touchdown pass made the score 26-14 shortly after.

The Bulldogs got their second touchdown of the game on an eight-yard run from Darius Sechen to go into half with some momentum, but Bonduel scored the next four touchdowns to seal the deal.

On the last play of the game Sechen broke loose for an 84-yard touchdown run to end things at a 45-20 score.

Last week, "things happened really fast" for the Bulldogs in what was the first game for many of the team's players, coach Jeff Bayerl said. With two more weeks of practice to reflect on the team's loss to Southern Door, things got better Friday.

"That's all we can do is improve and that's all I can ask for with this young group," Bayerl said. "We're going to take our lumps this year, but somewhere down the line, it's going to help us."

The team's youth showed in situations such as the kickoff return touchdown and some struggles on the defensive side, such as tackling. Bayerl said six players on the defensive side of the ball are experiencing varsity football for the first time.

The Bulldogs will be hoping that they can get more reps under their belt, but when their next game will be is uncertain.

As of Friday, when Peshtigo's next game will be was uncertain. Kewaunee, the team's scheduled opponent, had not yet begun practice, casting doubt over whether that game will happen. If it does happen, it won't be on Friday, but it could happen at some point next week, depending on the actions of Kewaunee's school board, Bayerl said Friday. Hopefully the Bulldogs will get someone on the schedule.

"We've just got to play football."
