Coleman/Peshtigo/Lena-STAA Cap Regular Season With Wins

Issue Date: November 11, 2020

Coleman Finishes Season With Huge Win Over Tomahawk

The Coleman Cougars were unstoppable in every sense of the word last Friday night when they took down the Tomahawk Hatchets by way of a 67-0 shutout.

Unfortunately for the Cougars due to Covid-19 and a number of players lost the Coleman Cougars are forfeiting their first round playoff match schduled for Friday.

But with the team still together the Cougars went wild on the field Friday night and wasted no time in posting some early game points.

Tyler Blanchard was the first to strike for the Coleman boys, slipping into the end zone off a two yard rush. Noah Nosgovitz followed with a successful two point conversion run.

Cayden Bintz tacked on the games next score, doing so a six yard QB keeper. Owen Kinzinger got the two points after.

Before the end of the first quarter Will Bieber punched his ticket on a 34 yard pass reception from Bintz, pushing the Cougars to the 22-0 first quarter lead.

Kinzinger continued the onslaught into the second quarter with a four yard scoring rush which was followed a short while later by Bieber on a 14 yard teedee rush.

Cole Klimek had one of the more spectacular plays of the night as he wrangled in a very short wobbling punt which he sprinted to the end zone for the 23 yard score. Bintz followed the return with a successful extra point kick.

Bieber tacked on the Cougars final score of the first half, sprinting in from 29 yards back for the 50-0 first half lead.

Nosgovitz scored a one yard TD run in the third while Braxton Darga posted some defensive points by scoring a safety.

Dylan VanErmen capped the Coleman scoring with a 10 yard run.

On the night Coleman amassed 392 yards while holding the Hatchets to just 30 yards.

Peter Kuchta led the Cougars on the ground with 95 yards on five carries while Bintz passed his way to 69 yards on a two for two showing.

"Its an empty feeling not being able to end the season on the field, but just goes with the year we are in. Safety of the players and parents needs to come first," said Bronson.

Big First Half Leads Bulldogs To Win Over Mishicot

The Peshtigo Bulldogs are on the board.

After some tough weeks where they lost steam in the second half and suffered a couple of big losses, Peshtigo used a big first half to propel the team to a 31-16 victory.

Darius Sechen scored on two first-quarter touchdown runs, one for 15 yards and another for 50 yards, and Will Boettcher fired an 11-yard touchdown pass to Preston Rehwinkel to give his team the lead 19-0 going into the halftime break.

Sechen had 81 yards on eight carries going into halftime and Boettcher had tallied 57 yards on nine carries. On the other side of the ball, Peshtigo didn't allow a completed pass in the first half and Boettcher intercepted a pass to help the cause.

That Boettcher-to-Rehwinkel offensive combination worked again in the third quarter, as the Bulldogs made it 25-0 in the third with a 64-yard touchdown pass from Boettcher to Rehwinkel.

Mishicot would put up some resistance in the second half, with a rushing touchdown to cut the lead to 17, but Peshtigo all but put it away on an 8-yard run from Boettcher in the fourth quarter, which made it 31-8. Mishicot would add a late touchdown to make it 31-16.

Peshtigo coach Jeff Bayerl said his team "ran out of gas" in the fourth quarter again Friday with eight kids playing both sides of the ball, but it won't matter. They're in the actual win column. They've won a couple of games by forfeit, but it doesn't compare to going out on the field and winning a game.

"Finally. This one felt good. This one felt really, really good," Bayerl said. "We still battled the whole way and it's a great feeling to finally get a real win."

Maroons Fall to Kings in Playoff Opener

The Calumet Copper Kings reigned over the Menominee Maroons in the teams' Friday night showdown 29-14. Calumet pulled away in the second half after a stagnant first half.

The teams went into the halftime break tied at 7-7. Menominee struck first with 6:14 to go in the half on a rushing touchdown by Aiden Bellisle, but the Copper Kings scored three minutes later. Early in Menominee's next drive, Calumet pulled off an interception but couldn't convert it to points and the teams were all square at the halfway point.

To start the second half, Calumet tried a bit of trickery with an early onside kick, but it went out of bounds and Menominee took over. It wouldn't last, however, as Menominee fumbled later in the drive to give Calumet the ball. With 6:45 to go in the third, the Copper Kings made it 15-7 with a score and two-point conversion.

Four and a half minutes later, Calumet scored on a long quarterback run to go ahead 22-7.

That was a problem for the Maroons all night, with the option giving them fits. The Copper Kings would dive the fullback to the center and run with the quarterback or run a toss play and the Maroons had a hard time keeping the edge and controlling the long runs, Menominee coach Jamie Schomer said.

In the fourth, Menominee couldn't get anything going early enough to mount a real comeback, and the game would end 29-14. Bellisle scored a on a 35 yard touchdown reception with four minutes to go for Menominee.

He ran 12 times for 30 yards and a touchdown and caught three passes for 71 yards, while Joseph Romero-Haire was 4-for-10 passing for 115 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

Overall, it wasn't the offensive output Menominee wanted, which was amplified by the fact the Maroons were missing a number of players due to COVID-19 protocols.

"Give them credit. It was hard to get a rhythm going and a weakness which you want to attack, so give them credit," Schomer said. "They played us very well defensively."

Big Play Titans Too Much for Tigers

The Lena/STAA football team managed just 14 points last week against Suring, but they made up for it with a 57-point outburst against Gillett on Friday, getting a 57-14 win.

By the end of the first quarter, Lena/STAA was gone in a flash, taking a 28-0 lead and never looking back. By halftime, it was 50-6, with Lena/STAA running just seven offensive plays in the first half, with a couple of return touchdowns from Lucas Hofer the standout big plays.

Hofer was certainly the player you wanted to watch in the second quarter, as he scored on a 17-yard run, a 46-yard punt return and a 75-yard kickoff return after Brandon DeBauch's rushing touchdown got Gillett on the board with 18 seconds to go in the half.

He finished with six rushing attempts for 40 yards, but those six rushes were tied for the most on the team, as Lena/STAA didn't have much of the ball offensively, scoring quickly when they did.

Logan Shallow caught a 14-yard pass from Sam Marquardt and ran in from 56 yards out in the first four minutes of the game to give the team an early lead. Marquardt then scored on a 22"yard run seven minutes in and threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Mason Simonson shortly before the end of the first quarter.

Shallow and Marquardt's touchdown runs of 56 and 22 yards, respectively, were their only rushes of the day, but they made them count. To top off his efficient day at the office, both of Marquardt's passes in the game also went for touchdowns.

Lena/STAA called off the dogs in the second half, scoring just a third-quarter touchdown on a five-yard run from Miles Maloney.

Andy Lemens scored on a 72-yard run for Gillett with two minutes to go in the game to make it 57-14.
