Cougars Win; Season Ends for Titans/Maroons

Issue Date: November 4, 2021

Area Football

Coleman Pounds Pacelli

with High Powered

Running Game


Coming into Friday's playoff matchup between Coleman and Pacelli, many would have expected an offensive shootout after seeing the success Pacelli had all season on that side of the ball.

Pacelli had scored over 47 points per game coming into the contest on the shoulders of Brycen Cashin, who finished the season fourth in the state with 2,055 rushing yards and second in the state with 36 rushing touchdowns.

Cashin would not have the same level of success he's used to against Coleman, however, as the Cougars raced to a 56-18 win.

Cashin ran 20 times for 99 yards but didn't score a touchdown. Pacelli had just 169 yards of total offense in the game.

On the other hand, the Cougars stormed through the Cardinals' defense to the tune of 634 yards and over 11.5 yards per play.

Owen Kinziger ran 19 times for 204 yards and two touchdowns. Noah Nosgovitz ran five times for 36 yards and two touchdowns, also completing three of his four passes for 22 yards, including a 14-yard touchdown strike to Trent Mongin in the first quarter.

Peter Kuchta took seven carries for 137 yards and a 59-yard touchdown and Will Bieber carried seven times for 89 yards. Braxton Darga also ran for a fourth-quarter touchdown.

Kinziger was the leader with his season high in rushing yards, but it was truly a balanced effort for the Coleman offense once again.

"He's so shifty. It's weird where this is his third straight year with over 1,000 yards and he's still kind of under-appreciated yet. We definitely [appreciate him]," Coleman coach Jeff Bronson said. "He's the catalyst to what we do, and you look at the other halfbacks, they feed off of him just by the blocking we had tonight. Trent Mongin had a terrific game blocking. Peter Kuchta and Will had the long runs but they also blocked really well. They compliment each other so well as a group."

Coleman's defense also deserves a lot of the credit. Pacelli scored three touchdowns, but one was on a 70-yard kickoff return and another was set up by an 80-yard kickoff return to the Coleman five yard line.

"Our defense played very well. That is a very well-coached team. They are scary with how fast and athletic they are, and to have a running back like Cashin, to slow him down like we did speaks wonders for our defense," Bronson said. "Defensively, we had guys in the right spots and we talked the last two weeks about "it doesn't have to be pretty, just get the back on the ground.' Our tackling again, for two weeks in a row, I thought was really good, because we've faced two really good backs in back-to-back weeks."

Bronson knows the Cougars will have to play on an elite level again next week and clean up things on the special teams front, especially with a matchup against No. 1 Hurley looming.

The two-seeded Cougars head to Hurley for a 7 p.m. matchup on Friday. Hurley is undefeated and coming off a 22-16 win over No. 4 Edgar.

The Cougars will also face another good running back in Max Blamey, who has 1,333 rushing yards and 25 touchdowns this season.



Laona/Wabeno

Eliminates Lena/STAA

in 8-Man Quarter Final


For the first time this year, the Lena/St. Thomas Aquinas Academy Titans were shut down offensively in a 24-10 loss to Laona/Wabeno in the quarterfinals of the WIAA eight-man playoffs.

The top-seeded Titans averaged over 46 points per game going into last week's quarterfinal. In the first quarter of last week's game, it looked like they were going to keep it up.

The Titans' Sam Marquardt scored on a one-yard run with 5:52 to go in the first quarter, capping off a 10-play drive to take an 8-0 lead.

Five minutes later, the Rebels tied it at eight on a Braden Brauer touchdown run.

Neither team scored in the second quarter. Six minutes into the third, Laona/Wabeno took a 16-8 lead on a Connor Taylor four-yard run.

The Titans were far from out of the game. The Lena/STAA defense forced a safety four minutes later and cut the lead to 16-10, but couldn't get any offensive drive going to tie the game or take the lead.

With 2:39 remaining in the fourth, an 11-yard touchdown run from Connor Taylor put the game away for Laona/Wabeno, 24-10.

The Titans finished the game with 245 total yards and 10 first downs to the Rebels' 14 first downs and 271 yards.

Despite being relatively close in offensive numbers, the Rebels intercepted four passes and Lena/STAA passers were 0-for-7 in the game. Three of the interceptions were by Adam Seeber and one was by Bauer.

Lena/STAA also struggled at the offensive goalline.

"We got inside the five three times, just didn't cash it in. They out-muscled us when it came to the guts right there at the end, the last six inches or whatever, then we got untypical penalties," Titans coach Dale Lange said. "We've been penalty-free pretty much most of the year, but I'm not taking anything away from those guys or making excuses. They are a very good team."

Taylor ran 15 times for 51 yards and two touchdowns. Brauer took his 20 carries for 75 yards and one score. Taylor was 13-for-23 passing for 140 yards.

Sam Marquardt intercepted one pass for Lena/STAA. He also ran 23 times for 99 yards and one touchdown. Logan Shallow took 17 rushing attempts for 129 yards.

The relatively young Titans lose just four seniors, but they're impactful players, with Shallow, Lane Whiting, Blake DeDamos and Mason Simonson all moving on.

"We've always had good kids. Even in the lean years, the kids have been really good. It's tough. There's four, and hopefully the juniors now step up like these seniors did," Lange said. "It's tough to lose the last game, but we lost to a very good team, and we were in the final eight in the state and undefeated in the regular season. Here it came down, and it wasn't meant to be tonight. A different day, next year, we want to go to at least the next level."

No. 2 Laona/Wabeno goes on to face No. 1 Luck in Medford on Friday at 7 p.m. Luck is coming off a 48-20 win over No. 2 Shell Lake.

The winner advances to the state championship to face the winner of No. 1 Gilman and No. 1 Newman Catholic.



Maroons Season

Ends With Playoff

Loss to Copper Kings


Menominee's season came to a close with a 35-20 loss to Calumet in the first round of the playoffs.

Dryden Nelson led the way for Calumet, taking his 26 carries for over 10 yards per carry, tallying 266 yards and three touchdowns. He also returned a fumble 41 yards for a touchdown.

Menominee's Aidan Bellisle ran 21 times for 78 yards and a touchdown and Kaeden Calcari ran 15 times for 69 yards and one score.

Bellisle also finished 7-for-9 for 95 yards and one touchdown passing. Brody Waara caught five passes for 57 yards and Bellisle caught four passes for 49 yards.
