Titans Defeat Wolves to Grab MONLPC East Lead

Issue Date: October 6, 2021

Lena/St. Thomas Aquinas was challenged by a tough Algoma team in the first 12 minutes of last week's matchup, but in the end, the Titans proved to be too much for the Wolves to handle.

Lena/STAA scored first on a nine-yard run from Sam Marquardt two and a half minutes into the game, but Algoma scored on a Carter Zimmerman dash four minutes later. After a failed two-point conversion, the Titans still led 8-6.

Marquardt scored again on an 11-yard run with two to play in the first, but two minutes later, Zimmerman scored his second touchdown and threw a pass to Grant Vandervest for the extra points, tying the game at 14.

That would be the last of Algoma's scoring momentum, as Lena/STAA scored two more times before the halftime break and one more early in the third to take a 36-14 win, with one 12-yard touchdown from Josh Kristoff and a pair of touchdown runs from Lane Whiting.

Whiting finished with 11 runs for 81 yards and two touchdowns, Marquardt scored twice on 20 attempts for 95 yards and Logan Shallow took 17 carries for 105 yards.

Titans co-head coach Dale Lange said the Titans have a good group of backs. Marquardt is elusive from the quarterback position, while Whiting and Shallow are strong power backs. Lena/STAA also has a very good offensive line, he said.

"We've had a really good group of guys. They get on there, they stay on their blocks, they run their blocks, they go down and they find another block," Lange said. "They find work and they keep pounding on guys. You see guys five, ten yards down the field knocking people around and that's the key part on offense."

Zimmerman, who has run rampant on a number of teams from around the area this season, was held to 23 carries for 91 yards and an 8-for-15 passing line for 81 yards and no touchdowns. "We talked all week we had to stop No. 10, that Zimmermann. He is one tremendous athlete, and we knew if we let him beat us with his running, we were in deep, deep trouble. We were trying to force him to pass the ball. I thought we could cover that a little bit better, but he's a good athlete and we were lucky to get away with a win here," Titans co-head coach Ed Huberty said. "He's good either way, and you can see when you give him time, he hits his receivers, but we didn't give up anything deep, and that's what we were talking about all week: give up everything in front, nothing over the top."

Zimmerman also threw an interception, a pass picked off by Ethan Braley.

Lena/STAA improves to 6-0 on the season and faces Gibraltar this Friday.

"I take my hat off to our guys. We've got a good club. The best thing about this team is they play as a team - there's no "me, me, me, I've got to get this.' They play together as a team and that's how you're going to win ball games," Lange said. "That's the greatest thing about these guys. They're great young guys. It's fantastic."



Cougars Stop

Wolverines to

Hold Northwoods

Conference Lead


The Coleman Cougars won another game in dominant fashion on Friday, and in the process showed that they can sling the ball around a little.

It's no secret that Coleman is a running team. The Cougars routinely run for hundreds of yards and divide carries between four or five runners.

On Friday, the Cougars were still able to run for 262 yards on 44 attempts, a respectable 5.91 yards per carry, but not what they're accustomed to.

So they turned to the pass. In the first quarter, Noah Nosgovitz broke a 0-0 deadlock with a 10-yard touchdown pass to Peter Kuchta.

He threw another seven-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter to Tieg Sadowski.

Will Bieber scored a rushing touchdown to stretch the Coleman lead. He made it 28-0 before the half when he took a pitch from Nosgovitz and launched a 71-yard touchdown pass to Sadowski.

It was Bieber's only pass. Nosgovitz threw six times, completing five for 92 yards and two touchdowns.

"I think we showed a few people that we could throw the ball if we had to, because they did a nice job of slowing us down at first, so we had to take advantage of our guys making plays through the air," Coleman coach Jeff Bronson said.

Kuchta scored a pair of third-quarter touchdowns, one on a seven-yard rushing touchdown and the other on a 56-yard fumble return.

It was Kuchta's first game back from injury. He ended up running five times for 35 yards and a touchdown in addition to his receiving and defensive touchdowns.

"Coming off the injury, having him back, it's another explosive athlete. He's sudden. He made a play defensively and got the return for us. Once he gets himself in a little bit better shape, you're going to see more of that, because the kid has special potential defensively," Bronson said. "He has the hunger to be good. He's a kid that wants to play college football and he's taking it seriously, so I think he took it personal that they got outside once or twice. He was going to make sure it wasn't going to continue to happen."

Owen Kinziger led Coleman in rushing yards with 11 carries for 127 yards. Bieber ran seven times for 42 yards and a touchdown and Max Seefeldt had a fourth-quarter touchdown run to go with three carries for 24 yards.

Sadowski had three catches for 107 yards and two touchdowns. Joseph Olson caught a pass for 35 yards.

The Wolverines' lone points came on an 84-yard touchdown pass from Tegan Werner to Sean Christensen in the second half. It was Werner's only completion of the game. He threw an interception on his only other pass.

On the ground, Crivitz ran 36 times for 137 yards. Dillan Gehm led the way with 14 carries for 76 yards.

"It's never easy [against Crivitz]," Bronson said. "That's a good team and they're coming off some COVID issues. You could tell they aren't quite back to what they probably were beforehand, so you can see when they got tired down and we made some moves after that happened."

Crivitz (4-3) hosts Menominee Indian at home on Friday night. Coleman (7-0) heads to Crandon (5-3) for a 7 p.m. kickoff.

Crandon is on a three-game win streak, with wins over Mishicot, Northern Elite and Menominee Indian.



Bellisle Six Touchdown

Effort Leads Maroons

Past Eskymos


The Menominee Maroons got back to their winning ways with a 46-20 victory over Escanaba on Friday behind six total touchdowns from Aidan Bellisle.

Bellisle opened the scoring with a 62-yard touchdown run on the first drive of the game, and after a Eskymos touchdown, he threw an 80-yard touchdown pass to Brody Waara. By the end of the first quarter, he had tossed another touchdown pass, this time to Erik Brown, and Menominee led 20-7.

Bellisle and Trevor Theurkauf had touchdown runs in the second quarter. Bellisle had another touchdown pass to Waara in the fourth and a short touchdown run to put his final stamp on the Menominee win.

Menominee (4-2) faces Marquette (5-1) on the road at 7 p.m. Friday.



Hatchets Offense

Proves to Be too

Much for Predators


Northern Elite couldn't contain the Tomahawk offense in the first half of a 65-21 defeat on Friday.

The Hatchets scored 26 points in each of the first two quarters to take a 52-7 lead into the halftime break. TJ Jablonski scored four of his five rushing touchdowns in the first half and threw for a touchdown as well.

He would finish 6-for-7 passing for 114 yards, a touchdown and an interception, running 10 times for 105 yards and five touchdowns.

Northern Elite cut the lead to 52-21 after 14 unanswered points in the third quarter, but Tomahawk scored 13 more in the fourth to put the game to bed.



Tigers Get Off to

Good Start But Can't

Hold Off Pioneers


The Gillett Tigers remain without a win in 2021 following a 54-14 loss to Sevastopol on Friday, though it looked for the first 12 minutes like they were headed for the win column.

Gillett took a 14-0 lead after the first quarter, with two touchdown passes from Jesse DeBauch, one to Noah Anker and the other to Ben Matczek.

Sevastopol scored 34 points in the second quarter and another 20 in the third quarter to dash any Tiger hopes of securing a win.

DeBauch finished 8-for-16 passing for 143 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.

Matczek caught four passes for 110 yards and a touchdown, while Anker had three grabs for 33 yards and a score.

DeBauch ran six times for 45 yards to lead all Gillett runners. Anker ran six times for 10 yards and Colton Sturm took six totes for 24 yards, also catching one short pass.

Sevastopol was led by three touchdown passes and two touchdown runs from Jack de Young.

Gillett's next shot at a win comes Friday night when the Tigers host Oneida Nation/NEW Lutheran, another team that's struggled in 2021, at 7 p.m.

Both teams are 0-6 on the year, with Oneida/NEW having scored just 26 points this season. Oneida lost 32-8 to Sevastopol three weeks ago.



Marines Battle Tigers

But Fall Short 27-19


The Marinette Marines came within one score of their first win of the season on Friday, but fell 27-19 to Wrightstown.

Marinette took a first-quarter lead on a three-yard touchdown by Adam Lemery, but Wrightstown tied the game and took the lead before half with a 23-yard passing touchdown from Eli Nelson to Jacob Van Zeeland and a 55-yard passing touchdown from Nelson to Logan Peters.

Marinette cut the lead to one score in the third with a punch in touchdown by Lemery, but Wrightstown again made it a two-possession game when Isaiah Pennenberg scored from a yard out.

In the fourth, Van Zeeland scored a five-yard touchdown to stretch the lead to 27-13.

Lemery scored a one-yard touchdown in the fourth to cut the Wrightstown advantage to eight at 27-19, but that's where the game would end.

Lemery finished with 37 carries for 143 yards and three touchdowns. He was 1-for-4 passing for five yards and an interception.

Darik McMahon ran 13 times for 53 yards. Brett Whiting ran four times for 19 yards. He recovered a fumble on the defensive side of the ball as well.

Marinette (0-7) takes on Little Chute in its final home game at 7 p.m. Friday. The Mustangs are 2-4, having lost three straight games to Luxemberg-Casco, Wrightstown and Fox Valley Lutheran.



Bobcats Ground Eagles

32-16 in MONLPC

West Play


Florence got back to winning ways with a 32-16 victory over Suring on Friday.

The hosting Bobcats broke a two-game losing streak and ended the Eagles' two-game win streak in the process.

Suring led 8-0 at the end of the first quarter, with an 11-yard touchdown run by Taron Haak making the difference. The second quarter was all Bobcats, however, with two touchdown passes by Wiliam Kelley giving Florence a 16-8 lead at the half.

Florence had a good second half, leading to a 32-8 advantage before a late running score by Suring's Gavin Fredenburgh cut the final score two two touchdowns.

Fredenburgh ran eight times for 57 yards and a touchdown. Haak led the Eagles with 15 carries for 136 yards and a touchdown.

Suring didn't have much going in terms of passing, with Suring passers combining to go 2-for-8 for 31 yards and two interceptions.

On the other hand, Florence was as good as it gets with the ball in the air.

Kelley finished 8-for-11 for 185 yards and two touchdowns. Evan Johnson caught four passes for 141 yards and a touchdown and Logan Schuls caught four passes for 44 yards and a score.

On defense, Johnson and Kelley each intercepted passes as well. Isaiah Fennessy led Florence with 13 tackles (seven solo).

Florence (3-3) faces Wausaukee on the road on Friday at 7 p.m. Suring (3-3) hosts Three Lakes at 1 p.m. Saturday.



Rangers Drop

Shootout To White

Lake/Elcho 50-34


Five total touchdowns from Kamden Stumbris was not enough to push Wausaukee past White Lake/Elcho on Saturday.

White Lake/Elcho took the lead after 10 minutes when Chase Novak tossed a 54-yard touchdown to Seth Schuett.

In the second, Wausaukee took a brief lead with three Stumbris touchdowns, but Novak had a rushing touchdown and two passing touchdowns, including a three-yard run with 25 seconds left in the half and a pass with just three seconds left, a 50-yarder to Keegan Klinger, which gave White Lake/Elcho a 28-20 lead going into the break.

In the third, Klingler scored on a 44-yard rush and Novak threw a 19-yard passing touchdown to stretch the lead, but Stumbris tossed a 65-yard score to Prestin Brunette to get his team back within two scores going into the fourth.

Novak ran in from 18 yards to take a 50-26 lead.

Stumbris had one more touchdown pass in the fourth to bring his total to five touchdowns.

He ended with 249 yards passing and three touchdowns, with 10 completions on 23 throws.

He ran 12 times for 85 yards and two touchdowns as well.

Brunette ran seven times for 45 yards. He caught two passes for 68 yards and a touchdown as well.

Layne Rowley ran four times for 99 yards and a touchdown and Ethan Phillips had one catch, a 27-yard touchdown reception in the fourth.

For White Lake/Elcho, Novak was 10-for-20 passing for 242 yards and four touchdowns.

Klingler caught seven passes for 171 yards and three touchdowns. He ran 18 times for 120 yards and a touchdown. Novak ran 15 times for 79 yards.

Wausaukee has lost three straight. The Rangers take on Florence this Friday.
