Titans and Eagles Win Big; Face Off Friday

Issue Date: October 28, 2020

Surings Suffocating Defense Stops Gillett, Leads to 40-6 Victory

The Suring Eagles scored touchdowns on five consecutive first-half drives against the Gillett Tigers on Friday and didn't allow a first down until the final drive of the game. When you do that, you won't lose too many games. Suring wasn't an exception, getting a 40-6 win.

After an initial 12-play drive that ended in a turnover on downs, Gillett scored on its next five drives. Even that first drive pretty much ended in points, as Gillett's first play of the ensuing drive resulted in a safety.

"After that safety, it seemed like everything seemed to click after that," Suring coach Mitch Taylor said.

Suring scored on the next five drives, with no drive taking more than five plays or 45 yards. Taylor said the team controlled the line of scrimmage and spread the ball around, with three different players scoring: Taron Haak scored three touchdowns on 11 carries for 57 yards, Keegan Rattin scored on a 45-yard run and finished with three carries for 63 yards and Gavin Fredenburgh caught a 41-yard touchdown pass from Jeremy Hensel, who went 2-for-3 passing on the day.

On the defensive side of the ball, Suring was suffocating. Gillett had the ball 10 times in the game. The final drive resulted in a 72-yard touchdown drive. The first nine resulted in a combined six yards.

Taylor credited that to his team's tackling.

"Just being in (eight-man) only a couple of years, we know that you really have to be sound tackling or big plays happen quickly, so that's one thing we've been trying to focus on is good tackling and being sound defensively," he said.

For Gillett, the Tigers got a score on the last play of the game, with Devin Waranka throwing for a 58-yard touchdown to Brandon DeBauch.

For the Tigers, that touchdown was hopefully a sign of things to come. With a lot of younger players, Gillett coach Nick Losselyong said the team is looking forward, teaching the players to do their individual jobs each play.

That involves a lot of time watching film, getting into the weight room and each of the players really learning their positions.

"It's that process," Losselyong said. "It's getting kids ready to go and figuring out how to do that: keeping their heads high, trying to get their spirits up and getting younger kids in so they get that playing time so they get used to being on the field and building this program into something good."



Lena/STAA Starts Fast, Cruises To Win Over Wausaukee

Lena/St. Thomas Aquinas Academy dominated Wausaukee Friday night, getting a 46-8 win.

With 3:27 to go in the first quarter, Logan Shallow scored on a one-yard touchdown run to give Lena/STAA a lead. It was the start of a great night for Shallow, who scored four touchdowns on just eight carries.

He scored again early in the second on a 50-yard run. Sam Marquardt threw a 54-yard pass to Ethan Russell for a touchdown and Shallow scored again from five yards out before the half to give his team a 28-0 lead.

Four minutes after the third quarter opened, Shallow broke away for another 39-yard score, his fourth of the night. Lane Whiting scored a five-yarder three minutes later and Sam Marquardt wrapped things up with a 39-yard touchdown with seven to play.

With 45 seconds to play in the game, Wausaukee scored when Prestin Brunette found the end zone from six yards out.

Shallow finished with 158 yards and four touchdowns on eight carries. Russell and Marquardt each ran 12 times for 85 yards apiece.

Wausaukee coach Grant Russ said his team didn't match Lena/STAA's physicality on the night and his team didn't play as well as they could've, but he gave his opponents the bulk of the credit.

They came in, they played well," he said. "They definitely got better since we played them week one, so they deserve an awful lot of credit too for what happened here tonight."

You can give Lena/STAA's coaches some credit for their gameplan, which clearly worked to perfection.

"Wausaukee's a good team, we just had some really good executed plays," Lena/STAA coach Dale Lange said. "Now we have to keep this going because we have another tough opponent next week against Suring. We've got to keep this whole attitude and keep things going as they are."

Suring beat Gillett 40-6 on Friday.



Crivitz Gets Win Over Tomahawk

The Crivitz Wolverines got the win in a shootout with the Tomahawk hatchets last Friday night 56-25.

The Wolverines got the scoring going early in the first quarter when Tegan Werner broke into the end zone from one yard back on a rushing play.

The next score wasn't rung in till the second quarter when Werner again took the hand off, this time form 14 yards back to bring the Wolverines to a 14-0 lead.

Tomahawk returned fire in the second quarter with a Kade Wenninger 13 yard rushing score.

After the intermission the game really opened up for the Wolverines who began scoring at will.

Eian Baumann got things going in the second half with a 37 yard QB keeper that ended in pay dirt which was followed by Baumann in the next drive, who threw a pass to Sean Christiansen for the 37 yard teedee.

Early in the fourth quarter Werner took another handoff, carrying this one five yards to the end zone.

Tomahawk scored again in the fourth off a Wenninger one yard rush which was followed by the Wolverines on a 70 yard Tegan Werener rushing core.

Baumann carried one more big run into the end zone, causing loose on a 37 yard scamper. Tomahawk needed the nights scoring on a 40 yard Wenniger recuperation that went 40 yards to the score.

Through the air Baumann led the Wolverines with 27 yards and one TD on two of his three passes. On the ground the Wolverines were also led by Baumann who amassed 184 yards and two TDs on 23 carries. Werner posted 148 yards and five TDs on eight carries.



Big Play Wrightstown Too Much for Marinette

The Marinette Marines had the ball for more than twice as many plays as their opponents from Wrightstown on Friday, but big chunk plays all but put the game out of reach for Marinette, as the Marines fell 42-6.

Wrightstown ran just 27 plays to Marinette's 61, but Wrightstown averaged almost 14 yards per play, including four touchdowns of 49 yards or more.

Logan Koel scored on a 49-yard run in the first quarter to give his team a 7-0 lead and after a three-yard run from a teammate, he did it again on a 69-yard score to make it 21-13 before halftime. In the third quarter, Wrightstown added two more 50-yard touchdown runs and a six-yard score to make it 42-0 going into the fourth.

Adam Lemery got Marinette on the board to avoid the shutout with a five-yard scamper. He led Marinette with 73 yards on 19 carries. Jameion Cross ran 22 times for 73 yards and Brett Whiting had seven carries for 68 yards. He also caught a pass for 36 yards.



Bulldogs Stall After Quick Start in Brillion, Fall 35-8

Things started promisingly for Peshtigo against Brillion on Friday night, but as it's gone for the Bulldogs all season, they just ran out of gas.

Peshtigo started the game with a 16-play, eight minute drive that ended in a five-yard touchdown pass from Will Boettcher to Preston Rehwinkel.

Brillion fumbled on its next possession but Peshtigo couldn't capitalize, falling behind the chains after two penalties. In the second quarter, Brillion scored twice on runs of six and 90 yards to take a 14-8 lead into half.

In the second half, it was all Brillion, with the game ending in a 35-8 loss for the Bulldogs.

"We just ran out of gas and that's the story of our season," Peshtigo coach Jeff Bayerl said. "We play well in spurts and then sometimes the kids have to take a play off and at this level, you can't do that. It is what it is. We are what we are."

With limited turnout for this year's team, Peshtigo has eight players playing both offense and defense and four of them are first-time varsity football players.

On defense, Peshtigo has some problems tackling that are amplified by the fact that their two best linebackers are lining up at safety and cornerback to better fit the needs of the team, Bayerl said.

Boettcher led the team with 77 yards on 22 carries, though the first-quarter touchdown pass was his only completion of the game, as he finished the game 1-for-7 passing. Darius Sechen ran 21 times for 54 yards.

The Bulldogs were gashed on defense by Sam Galoff, who ran 18 times for 212 yards and three scores to lead Brillion.
