Tough Opening Week For Area Gridiron Squads

Issue Date: August 30, 2019

Peshtigo Falls to Two

Rivers in Season Opener

The Peshtigo Bulldogs didn't start their first 30 minutes of football off on the right foot against Two Rivers on Friday, and it cost them.

Two Rivers took a 7-0 lead in the first quarter and blew things open quickly in the second, scoring on a 12-yard touchdown run by Jayden Kiphart, his second of the game. Later in the quarter, he threw a touchdown pass, his first of three in the game.

The Two Rivers quarterback would finish with a gaudy stat line of 399 passing yards, three touchdowns and 50 rushing yards on six attempts, two of which went for scores.

Part of the problem was a lack of pass rush from Peshtigo.

"It looked like seven on seven out there. The quarterback was standing back there with all day to throw, so we wanted to get some pressure on him," Peshtigo coach Jeff Bayerl said. That led to the Bulldogs moving do-it-all star Jerod Jandt to outside linebacker to get some pressure. It forced a fumble that got Peshtigo some points, but the Bulldogs were too far off to make a comeback.

Jandt scored a touchdown from a yard out to make it 21-6 and threw for a touchdown in the third to make it 28-12, just a two score game, but another Two Rivers touchdown in the quarter pretty much put things away.

Two more Jandt touchdowns, one by reception from Will Boettcher and one on the ground, allowed Peshtigo a respectable 26 points, but the Bulldogs had too many defensive troubles to get a win.

Bayerl said there's still work to be done on the playbook, while some injuries have left the Bulldogs, who had just 26 players to start the season, even thinner.

"Next week we're going to have to plug in a lot of stuff. It's going to be another bailing wire and duct tape to try and figure out what we're going to do," Bayerl said.

Luckily, he still has Jandt at his disposal. That's enough to give any team a chance.

Jandt ran 36 times for 176 yards, completed 4 of 12 passes for 50 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions and caught a touchdown pass.

Will Boettcher also put up some numbers, throwing a touchdown and running 15 times for 71 yards.

Peshtigo faces off with Bonduel at home on Friday.



Young Marines Battle

Mustangs Come

Up Short 23-6

Marinette's 23-6 season-opening loss to Little Chute on Friday doesn't come without positives.

Little Chute took a 9-0 lead in the first quarter off a short passing touchdown and a 30-yard field goal, a lead that would hold through halftime.

With 5:49 to go in the third quarter, Marinette's offense showed some life with a fourth-down touchdown pass from Adam Lemery to Dylan Poquette, a pass that brought Marinette within three points, 9-6.

Little Chute would score two fourth-quarter touchdowns on short fields in the final six and a half minutes to make the score look worse than it truly was, 23-6. In reality, it was a game Marinette was in the whole way.

"I told the kids I couldn't be more proud of them," Marinette coach Nate Anderson said. "Going into the first game, they competed. They're one of the best teams in the conference, if not the state. That's where we want to be in three or four years. To have a chance the whole game, going toe-to-toe with them with such a young team, I couldn't be more proud of them, and we're going to get better every week."

Marinette had just 14 fewer yards than Little Chute, with Joe Bezio running 14 times for 96 yards and Lemery throwing 10 times, completing five for 52 yards, a score and a fourth-quarter interception that helped turn the tides toward the Mustangs.

The Marinette offense has several sophomores on the line that could use some more experience, but Anderson believes that will come, along with the rest of the offense.

The standout for Marinette was really the defense, however. Little Chute didn't get much going on the ground and 19 Kade Van Asten passes went for just 82 yards.

"Our defense is senior-led. That's what we do. We want to be the best on defense to give us a chance," Anderson said. "Our offense will come. We're young, we'll get better, but hat goes off to our defense, and they're only going to get better, I know they are, because they're seniors. There's a lot of seniors on that defense, and they're going to give everything they've got every single week."

Crivitz Takes Hard

Loss in Opener

The Crivitz Wolverines were handed a hard season opening loss to a very tough and defensive minded Chilton Tigers team Friday night in Crivitz. After four quarters the Chargers were the victors 29-6.

The Tigers were quick to get their offense on the move. In fact maybe a little too quick as the Wolverines Eian Baumann pulled in the interception on the first play of the game.

Unfortunately for the Wolverines the Tigers had a very stout defense which seemed to give no ground up all game long.

Chilton scored their first of many teedees in the first frame with a goalie breaking two yard run by Kaiden Mikalowsky for the early 6-0 lead.

Before the first could expire the Tigers got into the end zone gain, this time off a 25 yard pass completion from Tyler Meyer to Ryan Broeckel.

Crivitz showed a spark of life with a goal line stand that ended in a Wolverine fumble recovery but the Tigers were ready to make the stop and continued the offensive onslaught.

The first teedee of the second frame was registered by Chiltons's Marcus Suttner who crossed in from one yard back.

Chilton nearly scored off a punt return but a flag for holding sent the score back. A Chilton field goal set the first half score at 22-0.

Chilton plugged out one more teedee in the third quarter, getting in off a 45 yard pass completion from Meyer to Cayden Popp.

Crivitz stopped the shutout from occurring late in the fourth quarter when Jaden Werner hit an open Dawson Angriest in the end zone from 17 yards out for the six point score.

Chilton's Meyer was 11 of 16 through he air with two tedious and 171 yards. Meyer also led the rushing game with 44 yards.

Crivitz's Werner was 10 of 20 with 118 yards and one touchdown at quarterback.

Coleman Falls to

Bonduel in Low Score

Endurance Match

The Coleman Cougars were in a fight for the match thats for sure. Last Friday night they traveled to Bonduel to take on the Bears who they saw take the lead, and hold it all game long. Bonduel came away with the win 13-8.

Bonduel was first on the board, doing so later in the second quarter on a Sokalski 10 yards run.Along with the extra point kick the Bears enjoyed a one score lead 7-0.

The Bears scored again in the fourth quarter on a one yard run while the Cougars scored their only score of the game in the fourth quarter off a Tyler Blanchard 18 yard reception. Blanchard also score the two point conversion giving Coleman their final score of 8.

Blanchard led the rushing game for Coleman with a 61 yard effort off 11 carries.

Bonduel's Majewski wrangled up 98 yards on six carries.

Cayden Blintz threw for 64 yards while The bears' Letter passed for 66 yards.

Laona Wabeno Starts

Season With Win

Over Wausaukee

The 8-Man football season has begun and two of our area teams already had a conference showdown and it was the Laona/Wabeno Rebels who came away with the win over the hosting Wausaukee Rangers 30-18.

Laona/Wabeno struck first with a Connor Taylor 58 yard run giving the Rebels a 6-0 lead which was improved with a successful two point conversion for the 8-0 lead.

Wausaukee responded with two minutes left in the first quarter by getting into the end zone on a Hayden Renikow nine yard run.

Laona/Wabeno scored agin in the second off a Ethan Westimayer three yard run while Wausaukee jumped back into the mix in second frame with a 12 yard rushing score from Renikow. Wausaukee was able to hold the lead over the second frame into the intermission with a Renikow 41 yard pass to Brandon Shigouri. Wausaukee was in the lead 18-16.

But a cold spell for the Ranger offense and a solid march by the Tiger saw the Rebel boys hold on for the win.

With two minutes left in the third quarter Ethan Westimayer got into the end zone on a 31 yard run while the fourth quarter saw Braden Brauer get into the enzone off an eight yard run.

Renikow ended the night with 229 passing yard on a 18 of 28 showing. He scored one TD. Shigouri caught 10 passes for 157 yards and a teepee while Brenden Versaskas caught eight for 72 yards.

Laona/Wabeno's Westimayer rushed for 151 yards on 18 carries with two tedious while Renikow gave the Rangers 97 yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries.



Gillett Shellacks

Lena/STAA in 8-man

Football Action

The 8-man football season is quickly getting underway and last Friday the Lena/STAA Titans were handed a hefty loss from the home field Gillett Tigers who blasted the Titans 32-0.

Gillett started their shutout performance with an Anthony Carroll three yard run in the first quarter.

During the second frame Wyatt Herzog reeled in a 44 yard pass from Derek Block, carrying it to the end zone for the 14-0 lead.

Before the half could wrap up the Tigers increased the buffer with an Anthony Lemens 35 yerd interception return. Giving the Tigers a 20-0 lead going into the half.

The third went scoreless before Carroll found an opening in the fourth quarter. He squeezed into the enzone on a four yard scamper while Lemens wrapped up the evenings scoring with a eight yard teedee run.

Logan Shallow led the Titans run game with 28 yards off eight carries while Gillett's Carroll wrapped up the night with 72 yards off 15 carries.

Gillett's Derek Block passed for 79 yards in a six of 11 showing while Shallow passed for 15 yards in a two of 10 showing.

Oconto Takes

Loss to Rosholt
