Tough Opening Round For Area Teams; Coleman is Sole Survivor

Issue Date: October 25, 2018

Coleman Runs Past Crivitz; Zeitler Scores six T.D.'s

Coleman defeated Crivitz in the first round of the WIAA playoffs 46-20 on Friday behind a big second quarter and a massive game from running back Jacob Zeitler.

After a Zeitler three-yard run to take the 6-0 lead for Coleman, Crivitz looked poised not just to hang around in the game, but also make a run for the win.

Dawson Andrist made a break for an 80-yard kickoff return to give Crivitz the lead just 15 seconds later with a made extra point. As time ran out on the first quarter, Ezekial Lawrence scored on a 24-yard run to give the Wolverines a 14-6 lead.

Zeitler scored two touchdown runs to give Coleman an 18-14 lead after two more failed two-point conversions. Cayden Bintz had a 29-yard touchdown pass to Mason Risner with under five minutes to go in the half, but Coleman again failed the two-pointer and led 24-14.

Coleman coach Jeff Bronson said the big adjustment for the Cougars was just to do their jobs better.

"If you look at the first quarter, we dominated everything but the score, because we gave up the kick return right off the bat that gave them momentum," Bronson said. "I think they ran five plays and had 14 points."

Zeitler had a big second half. He scored on a 34-yard touchdown run to extend the lead to 30-14, but it was still a two-score game.

Jaden Werner tossed a pass to Tony Jopek with five minutes to go in the third, with Jopek taking it 78 yards to the house. The kick failed and Crivitz trailed 30-20.

Zeitler put the game away in the fourth with two touchdown runs from 13 and 27 yards out. He finished with 24 carries for 197 yards and six touchdowns.

"He's the one that has experience because with most of our juniors, we didn't make the playoffs last year," Bronson said. "He's a good kid to lean on. He's got the big shoulders."

Zeitler said that while the team's first half wasn't as good as it could be, but he was happy to have won his final home game in Cougar green.

"The first half was not the greatest, to be honest, but the second half everybody stepped up and really brought it to them," Zeitler said. "It really means a lot that we won our final home game."

Bintz was 5-for-6 passing for 118 yards for Coleman. Werner finished 4-for-10 with 141 yards for the Wolverines. Payton Nelson caught three passes and intercepted one on defense. Jopek's 86 yards on two catches led the Wolverines.

"Hats off to them. They played well," Crivitz coach Matt Bernier said of the Cougars. "I'm always proud of my guys. It's a little bittersweet sending our seniors off like this. I think we could have played a little bit harder. Turnovers definitely came into play in this game."

Coleman, which missed the playoffs last season, faces Iola-Scandinavia on Friday. I-S is the top seed in the bracket, having beaten Three Lakes Phelps 54-14 Friday.

"It's nice keeping the tradition going. Last year, we didn't make it, but it's just great to see us back in the playoffs," Zeitler said, referencing his mindset to play keep playing hard for his senior year. "Just have to leave it all on the field."



Eagles end Bulldogs Season in Opening Round Playoff Game

Peshtigo led Southern Door 7-6 in the first quarter of Friday's playoff game, but Derik LeCaptain and Kyle Daoust took over in all phases of the game to send the Eagles onto the next round, 55-15.

Southern Door struck first on a touchdown pass from Kyle Daoust to Nick Baudhuin but the Eagles missed the kick. Travis Plym then got an eight-yard rushing touchdown and Aidan Bohaczek hit the kick to push the Bulldogs ahead.

Daoust got a six-yard rushing touchdown to restore the lead before the end of the first. In the second, LeCaptain took over.

He took in a five-yard run to move the lead to 21-7, then adding a 61-yarder for a score later in the quarter. The future Division I linebacker then intercepted a pass and took it 33 yards for the score. Another interception return for a touchdown by Max Pierre all but sealed the win by halftime.

LeCaptain caught a five-yard pass from Daoust in the third and a 59-yard pass for a touchdown in the fourth. Plym had another touchdown run, but the Eagles came away with the 55-15 win.

LeCaptain took 14 carries for 189 yards and two touchdowns, catching three passes for 77 yards and two touchdowns as well. Daoust was 8-for-11 passing for 139 yards and three touchdowns, rushing five times for 37 yards and a score.

"All of the sudden, next thing I knew it was 21-7 and I'm thinking, "how'd that happen?' We weren't able to get that big horse on the ground," Bayerl said. "We struggled and they made plays."

For Peshtigo, Plym ran 14 times for 28 yards and two touchdowns. He was 5-for-9 passing for 71 yards. Peshtigo's passers threw three interceptions as a team.

Will Boettcher led the Bulldogs with 10 carries for 68 yards.

Bayerl said the Bulldogs went into the game after one of its best weeks of practice of the season.

"We were focused, we were ready, and I honestly thought we were going to win the game. I really did," Bayerl said. "We went over there with a great game plan, but it's like Mike Tyson says, everybody has a plan until they get punched in the face. I thought the kids with the adversity we faced this year and the people we lost, all the battling we did, I just thought our kids were outstanding. The resiliency they showed and always coming back when we needed them to but Friday night it just didn't happen. They were just on a mission they were just better than we were. Once the wheels come off, they come off and there's not a lot you can do to get it back."

The loss brings Plym and 12 other Bulldogs' careers to a close, including wide receivers Max Rauch (4 rec., 39 yards) and Mitchell VanVooren (1 rec., 32 yards).

"The senior group, their leadership was second to none," Bayerl said. "We had five captains this year. We tried that experiment and realized we made some really good choices with our captains. I think their leadership was just fantastic."

The Bulldogs finished the season 7-3 in Bayerl's first full year in charge. The next step for Bayerl and the Bulldogs is to get ready for next season and look to get some more players to come out and play.

"I thought it was a good season," Bayerl said. "When you're building a program, to finish 7-3, you hope the younger kids that didn't play football or the ones that did play football in the lower levels see the success we had."



Reedsville Too Much for Suring in Round 1 Game

Suring's season came to a close against Reedsville in the first round of the playoffs on Friday with a 60-6 loss.

Reedsville posted two touchdowns in the first quarter, both by Brandon Stelzer, who had four in the game.

His third score came in the second on a 17-yard gain. An interception return for a touchdown made it 25-0 and after two more touchdown runs, Reedsville took a 40-0 lead into the halftime break.

Brennen Dvorachek took two runs of 56 and six yards for touchdowns in the third to extend the lead. In the fourth, Suring got on the board.

Stuart tossed a 45-yard touchdown to Mitch Stegeman. Reedsville scored one more touchdown to finish things off 60-6.

Stegeman had two catches for 66 yards in the game.

Reedsville got 276 rushing yards on 20 carries from four different ball-carriers. Stelzer led with 16 carries for 183 yards and four touchdowns.

Suring finished the regular season 3-6.



Menominee Downs Marquette In Season Finale

Menominee finished off the 2018 football season with a win on Friday.

Menominee has had something of a down season by its usually high standards, going 2-7 overall, but the Maroons took care of business Friday in a 32-14 victory over Marquette.

Brendon Harris carried eight times for Menominee, going for 143 yards and two touchdowns. Keagan Monroe ran three times for 41 yards and William Burnett ran 13 times for 39 yards and three scores.

The loss was Marquette's first loss in Great Northern Conference play (4-5 overall).
