Wisconsin Heights' offense was the real deal. They attacked through the air with precision passing from sideline to sideline. Quarterback Ozur Kepler hit on big passes to receivers Ace Ayers and Jack Fields with the Vanguards scoring on their first six possessions. Sturgeon Bay found its footing though and began to claw back. Anthony Jennerjohn found Jack Schmelzer for two scores in the first half. Then a pivotal sequence began. Jack Schmelzer was dragged down at the 10 yard line after a big pass play. Sturgeon Bay ended up turning the ball over on downs but managed a safety on defense. Following the kick from Wisconsin Heights, Drew Price got loose on a pass down the seam from the left slot and was tripped up by the ankles from behind. A touchdown saving tackle. An interception by Jennerjohn ended that drive. Even with a 65 yard Schmelzer reception on the first play of the third quarter Sturgeon Bay couldn't shrink the deficit below 12 points.
Severe dehydration and cramping held several starters out and Kepler and Company went back to work. The Vanguards scored at will against freshman and sophomore backups to make the final score 74-38. Sturgeon Bay has Homecoming next week against Algoma.
