Eagles tame Bulldogs in 21-19 win on WRKU



 

By Nate Alberts



The Southern Door Eagles stopped the Peshtigo Bulldogs on a 2-point conversion with 29 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter to hold onto a 21-19 victory Friday night on 102.1 WRKU.


The scoring got underway when Derik LeCaptain ran in from 1-yard out on the Eagles second possession of the game making the score 6-0 after a blocked extra point. That would be the only score in the quarter.


To start the second, the Bulldogs took their only lead of the game on a 3-yard run by Nick Nielson making the score 7-6.


Southern Door quickly responded with another score of their own when Kyle Daoust threw a shovel pass to Sam Gerend on fourth-and-goal from the two-yard line to make the score 12-6. That would be followed by LeCaptain converting the 2-point conversion.


That would be the score at the half, 14-7.


Southern Door would put a drive together to start the second half, but an interception in the end zone stalled the drive. That would be the only drive that would come close to scoring as no points were scored in the quarter and the Eagles were winning 14-7.


In the final quarter, the Bulldogs made it 14-13 on a Jared Jandt 1-yard run and failed on a 2-point conversion when quarterback Riley Reif was stuffed short of the end zone on a naked bootleg.


Southern Door would extend their lead to eight on the next series when Daoust ran in from 1-yard out. The touchdown was set-up by a Adam Gutschow 25-yard run to the 15-yard line and an 8-yard run by Nick Baudhuin to make it first and goal.


Peshtigo would have the ball last and score with:29 seconds remaining on Jandt's second rushing touchdown of the game. The Bulldogs would go for two, but a high snap recovered by the Eagles ended the potential tying play.


After recovering a successful onside kick, Daoust took one final knee in victory formation to end the game.


Daoust finished with two total touchdowns and one interception. LeCaptain finished with his 12th rushing touchdown and a 2-pt conversion while Gerend recorded his seventh receiving touchdown.


The Eagles return home next Friday to take on their rival Sturgeon Bay for Homecoming.

Sturgeon Bay won a hard fought game against Algoma 2-0 Thursday. Eli Dietzel and CJ Fairchild scored the lone goals of the game. Clippers Coach Todd Maas said, "Our boys faced Algoma tonight at their place on their new home field. It's a major step up from the old field. Algoma played a tough match. Always making sure they had guys behind the ball. We struggled to find quality on the final shot, they put a lot of guys in the box, which made it difficult. We had plenty of opportunities to get numbers on the board, but their GK had a great game!!! Not sure how many big time saves he had, but it was enough. Our guys still need to play cleaner. We gave the ball away to easy and too many times to be considered a quality performance from us. We as a coaching staff expect these guys to play up to their potential at all times, and tonight was not one of those times. I hope they relax and have a good time with the homecoming football game and come out hungry for our game on Saturday vs. Fox Valley Lutheran. It's time to kick it into gear and finish our regular seasons games firing on all cylinders. Come out and join us at 11:00 AM for JV and 1:00 PM for Varsity.

Packers And Bears TONIGHT AT Lambeau Field



 

By Green Bay Packers




The Green Bay Packers will host the Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field tonight in the 195th match up of the NFL's oldest rivalry. The series is tied at (94-94-6), which includes two playoff games (1-1). The Packers are hosting the Chicago Bears on a Thursday night for the third consecutive season.

 

The Packers have won seven of the last nine meetings against the Bears at Lambeau Field, including a 26-10 victory last season in Week 7. Green Bay has outscored Chicago, 240-120, in the last nine games, scoring 20-plus points in seven of those contests.

 

Tonight's game will come nearly 60 years after Lambeau Field (originally called Green Bay City Stadium) hosted its first regular season game, a match up between the Packers and Bears on Sept. 29, 1957.

 

Under Head Coach Mike McCarthy, the Packers are 16-7 against the Bears during the regular and postseason, including wins in 12 of the last 14 games. In all but one of the 16 wins under McCarthy, Green Bay has scored at least 20 points. In the first 15 seasons of the NFC North (2002-16), the Packers (nine) and Bears (three) accounted for 12 division titles.

 

The Packers have won their first two home games for the fifth consecutive season. u Including the postseason, Green Bay has won six consecutive games at Lambeau Field. Green Bay has won at least two of its first three games for the third consecutive season and for the eighth time in the last 11 seasons. The Packers have won eight of their last nine regular-season games.

 

Clay Matthews (74.0) is a sack away from passing Kabeer GbajaBiamila (74.5, 2000-08) for the most in franchise history (since 1982).

 

With Aaron Rodgers as the starting quarterback, Green Bay is (15-4) during the regular and postseason against the Bears, with one loss coming in 2013 after Rodgers left the game with an injury after the first series.

 

In the 19 games against Chicago, Rodgers has an overall passer rating of 103.2 and has posted a 100-plus passer rating in four of the last six match ups, including a rating of 102.2 in the first meeting last season.

 

Of the players that have attempted 175 or more passes against the Bears during the regular and postseason, Rodgers' 103.2 passer rating is No. 1 in league history. Since 2008, Rodgers has four games with a passer rating of 140-plus against the Bears, ranking No. 1 among NFL quarterbacks. No other NFL quarterback has more than one against Chicago over that time span.

Packerland Conference Soccer Monday


By Nick Freimuth




Tonight Gibraltar/Sevastopol beat Algoma 3-2 at Gibraltar High School.  Scoring for Gibraltar/Sevastopol were Ben Fitzgerald, Jose Tlatempa and Evan Lardinois. Will Albertson had an assist.  These two teams are extremely well matched.  Algoma won the first match of the season by one goal and now the "Vikineers" won the second match again by one goal.

 

Sturgeon Bay powered past Kewaunee last night 7-2. Coach Todd Maas said, "I know I sound like a broken record here again. But the quality of our game is spot on at times and then the next moment it's like we are still in our first couple days of training camp. Our first half we score relatively early and then in the next few minutes give up a crazy sloppy ball off a corner. Things like that just can't happen in order for us have success down the stretch. Our half time score was 5-1."

 

Jaden Stevenson had another hat trick scoring three goals for the Clippers plus an assist. Ben DeNamur had two goals. Owen Stevenson and Eli Deitzel both had a goal as well. Gunnar Tebon and Dylan Burk each added an an assist in the win. The Clippers had 22 shots while the Storm were held to six.

 

Coach Maas added, "We did do some very nice things. In fact one of our new up and comers Ben DeNamur scored two of his first career goals in a matter of 15-20 minutes. It was awesome to see his hard work paying off. But that quality isn't always there. Their potential is so high, and that's what aggravates me to see them sloppy. Our second half was a bit better. We didn't score as much but the quality of play and passing was coming together. Back to practice we go for the next couple days then down to Algoma on Thursday and Homecoming game on Saturday vs FVL."

The Milwaukee Brewers got a much needed 4-3 win over the Chicago Cubs Saturday.  After losing three straight heart-breaking games in a row, the Brewers got a two-run walk-off home run from Travis Shaw in the bottom of the tenth inning to capture the victory.  Milwaukee trailed 2-1 in the ninth inning against Cub's closer Wade Davis when Orlando Arcia hit a solo home run to send the game into extra innings.  Davis had not blown a save in 38 straight appearances dating back to September 2, 2016.  The Cubs reclaimed the lead in the top of the tenth on a John Jay RBI single, only to see Shaw hit his 31st home run of the season to give the Brewers the come-from-behind win.  The Brewers (82-73) remain 4 1/2 games behind the Cubs in the NL Central.

Gibraltar dealt third loss in 63-20 blowout against Newman Catholic


By Baxter Colburn




The Gibraltar Vikings (3-3) fell 63-20 at home against the Wausau Newman Catholic Fighting Cardinals (6-0) Saturday afternoon. Jumping out to a 42-0 lead, the Cardinals stole the show right from the opening drive of the game.

Gibraltar's defense could not keep up with the elusive running attack of Casey Kaliface who ran for over 100 yards and three touchdowns.  Another week of poor tackling and the inability to slow down opposing rushers ultimately buried the Vikings hopes of an upset.

Quarterback Trevor Reinhardt threw just one touchdown on the afternoon thanks to Alex Laughlin's ability to haul in a pass in tight quarters. Daniel Hallet rushed for a touchdown, his first of the year, and Adam Reinhardt caught one touchdown pass to extend his season total to seven.

Gibraltar plays Bowler/Gresham next Friday night at 7:00 pm for their 2017 Homecoming game. Hear that game live on 105.1 MORE FM and on the DoorCountyDailyNews.com Facebook page.

 

Kewaunee County schools suffering low Fall sports numbers


By Baxter Colburn




Kewaunee County high school athletic programs are challenged by a tough opponent but this one can't be found on a field or court. Participation in all fall sports is down according to reports from Kewaunee County high school athletic directors. Algoma and Luxemburg-Casco face issues with possible shorter seasons or even cancellations for certain JV teams. Varsity cross-country at Algoma cannot field the needed six runners per meet, due to low numbers. Athletic Director of Algoma David Robertson says the dropping numbers are not good for athletic program success.

 



 

Consistent fall sports for Kewaunee County schools to cancel or have low numbers are soccer, cross country and for Algoma, football. Luxemburg-Casco Athletic Director Jenny Bandow says the Spartans fall participation does well with major sports but struggles for consistent players in boys soccer. Bandow also highlights that not just Kewaunee County is struggling.

 



 

Robertson and Bandow each agree that even with smaller numbers the kids participating in Fall Sports bring a high level of passion and skill to their respective schools. Fall sports seasons in Kewaunee County run till mid-October.

Brewers drop second straight to Cubs


By Baxter Colburn




For the second straight night, the Milwaukee Brewers dropped a close one in 10 innings against the Chicago Cubs. Tied 4-4 going into the 10th inning, Chicago benefitted from poor pitch placement from closer Corey Knebel who walked three batters and gave up a single. His third walk proved to be most costly, as he gave a free pass to Kris Bryant from third base to home plate. The Brewers offense sputtered and ultimately fell short, resulting in a 5-4 loss at Miller Park.

Milwaukee's highlight of the night came on back-to-back home runs for the Crew thanks to Stephan Vogt and Brett Phillips in the second inning.

Game three of the series talks place today at 12:05 pm and is available for viewing on your local FOX station.

Spartans Comeback To Upset Freedom 22-19 on WBDK


By Paul Schmitt




The Luxemburg-Casco Spartans came back from a 19-0 halftime deficit to defeat the Freedom Irish in stunning fashion 22-19 Friday night in a North Eastern Conference football thriller.  The Spartans got three touchdown runs by Nathan Coisman in the second half and a stellar defensive effort that turned back the Irish in the final minutes to preserve the victory.

 

Freedom scored on two touchdown passes in the first half by Mattew Verhasselt and shocked the Spartans with a 77 yard reverse by Caden Hofacker with only :23 left in the second quarter to take a commanding 19-0 lead at halftime.

 

The Spartan defense contained the potent Irish offense in the second half and Coisman scored on runs of 2, 5, and finally 3 yards to give the Spartans the lead for good with 10:10 left in the 4th quarter.

 

Freedom (3-2, 4-2 overall) had one last opportunity late in the fourth quarter, but failed to convert a fourth and four at the Spartan 18 yard line.  The Spartan offense then run out the remaining 4:10 on  the clock to complete the incredible comeback.  Quarterback Garrett Aissen converted  a key third down and ten with a 17 yard scramble to seal the victory.

 

Luxemburg-Casco (4-1, 4-2 overall), who still controls their destiny in defending their conference title, will now host Clintonville in the Spartan's homecoming game next Friday night.  The game will be broadcast on 96.7FM WBDK and streamed on DoorCountyDailyNews.com starting at 6:30 p.m. with the pregame and kick-off set for 7 p.m.

Menominee outruns Southern Door 62-26 on 102.1 WRKU


By Tim Kowols




Through the air and on the ground, the Southern Door Eagles couldn't keep pace as they fell to the visiting Menominee Maroons 62-26 in a game heard on 102.1 WRKU.

 

Quarterback Ethan Mileski was responsible for six Maroons touchdowns, including four through the air. Eagles running back Derik LeCaptain helped even the game early in the first quarter on a 48 yard touchdown, but would leave the game early with a lower leg injury. Dealing with his own leg injury, Kyle Daoust threw three touchdown passes to Sam Gerend, who led the Eagles receiving corps with a double digit catch evening. The Maroons capped off their evening with a pair of William Burnett runs.

 

The Eagles return to action next week as they travel to Peshtigo in a conference match-up. You will be able to catch that game on 102.1 WRKU.

High School Volleyball Thursday Night Results


By Nick Freimuth




It was a battle of the L-C's Thursday when Luxemburg-Casco beat Little Chute three games to one in high school volleyball. The Spartans only lost the second of four games (25-23, 22-25, 25-17, 25-11). Megan Cannon did a phenomenal job as the court general dishing out 47 assists, adding 11 digs and five aces. Alexis Dorner tallied 17 kills and six aces. Cassie Schiltz added 14 kills, 10 digs and two aces. Molly Wotruba was the leader in the back row with 35 digs and two aces.

 

Spartans Coach Jeff Frey said, "To have the #2 team in the state and the defending conference champion come into our gym and have our girls play the way we did was awesome.  We have been talking a lot about three things; focus, consistency and confidence and I thought we did all three of those things very well tonight.  To top it all off, it was Pink Out night and our parents and the entire community as well as Little Chute really came together to make it a special night."

 

 

Sturgeon Bay played Peshtigo and lost in five 25-19; 11-25; 25-20; 20-25; 15-6. Hailey DeGrave had 19 attack kills, two aces, and two solo block kills. Morgan Nelson had 23 set assists. Coach Stacey Judas said, "We came out strong in the first set. By the second set, Peshtigo came alive and caught us off guard. We turned it around to play toe-to-toe in the third. Our passing was inconsistent and took us out of our element in the last two sets. Overall, we're playing well and I'm looking forward to our upcoming matches going into Homecoming week."

Clippers And Kewaunee Football To Tangle Tonight On 104.1 FM


By Nick Freimuth




It is a must win game for both teams if they want to secure a spot in the playoffs. Kewaunee is (1-2) in conference with winnable games left against Coleman and Peshtigo.

By Tim Kowols




The Southern Door Eagles will welcome Michigan's Menominee Maroons in a non-conference matchup tonight.

Bengals And Packers Always Play Close Games



 

By Green Bay Packers




When the Green Bay Packers and Cincinnati Bengals get together at 3:25 Pm Sunday at Lambeau Field the outcome will likely be decided within the last few minutes. Six of the last seven contests between Green Bay and Cincinnati have been settled by seven points or less, including each of the last four.

 

While the Packers are (4-3) as the home team against Cincinnati, they are (4-1) in Green Bay. The Bengals play in Green Bay for just the sixth time and the first time since 2009, when they won, 31-24.

 

The Packers are looking to snap a three-game losing streak against Cincinnati and record their first victory over the Bengals since 1998. Green Bay and Cincinnati will meet for the sixth time in the month of September, including the fourth time in the last five times they have faced each other.

Sevastopol Volleyball Wins Exciting Match Against Sturgeon Bay


By Nick Freimuth




It took five games to decide the Sevastopol vs. Sturgeon Bay Packerland Conference volleyball game Tuesday night.

Facing defeat, Sevastopol responded in an exceptional way. They won three straight games to win a come-from-behind match against their rivals.  The Pioneers won 25-11, 25-23, and 15-7. Aly Differt tallied eight kills with 14 assists. Mya Ploor had seven kills, 15 assists and four ace serves. Brooke Hurth notched 17 digs and Steph Bemmann had four blocks in the win.

High School Soccer Tuesday Night Recap


By Nick Freimuth




The Gibraltar/Sevastopol soccer team played a hard fought game against Roncalli ending in a 4-4 tie. The "Vikineers" came back from a two-goal deficient in the last 10 minutes to tie up the match.  Scoring for Gibraltar/Sevastopol were Eddie Garcia (2), Hayden Hoffman, and Kiegan Sargent.  Ben Fitzgerald had two assists for the team.  Sevastopol/Gibraltar Coach Steve Weitman said, "I believe no one was sitting in their seats for the last 10 minutes of the game as both teams played an aggressive evenly matched game with everything being left on the field at the close."

 

 

Luxembrug-Casco impressed against Waupaca Tuesday in a North Eastern Conference game. Carter Sewell started off the scoring early at the four-minute mark en route to a 7-2 victory. Adam Arendt accomplished the rare hat trick scoring three goals for the Spartans. Griffin Geib  and Andrew Iverson also scored goals for L-C in the win. Denny Christoff had an incredible four assists to lead the Spartans to victory. Garrett Zuleger made 13 saves in goal for the Spartans.

Algoma Volleyball Wins Close Match With Sevastopol


By Nick Freimuth




The Algoma Wolves won a seesaw affair against Sevastopol last night in Packerland Conference volleyball. After dropping the first game 25-21, the Wolves rebounded with a 25-16 win of their own in game two. The Pioneers won game three 25-11 meaning all Sevastopol had to do was win one of the remaining two games.

 

Algoma played their best volleyball of the night in game four winning 25-13. Then in game five it was more back and forth but the Wolves held off Sevastopol for a 15-12 win in the game and a (3-2) match score.

 

The Pioneers were led by Aly Differt who tallied 12 kills and 12 assists, Mya Ploor with 13 kills and 12 digs and Brooke Hurth who logged 20 digs and three ace serves.

Brewers Keep Pace In NL Central 


By Brett Kinnard




The Milwaukee Brewers shutout the Pittsburgh Pirates 1-0 during the game on Tuesday. Chase Anderson started on the bump for the Brewers and went six innings strong while striking out eight on the day. Corey Knebel came in to close the door on the Pirates with his 37th save of the year.

The lone run support on the day came from Domingo Santana. He hit a solo shot in the fourth inning to give Chase Anderson a little breathing room. They never looked back as they held on for the win. Milwaukee now sit three and a half games back in the division and one games back in the wildcard.

The Brewers will now take on Pittsburgh Wednesday to go for the series sweep. First pitch being throw out at 6:05. The lead for the Cubs in the NL Central is still 3.5 games but Milwaukee is now within one game of the Rockies for the second wild card position.

Packers Prepping For Bengals


By Nick Freimuth




The Packers are coming off a tough loss to the Falcons but are not in as bad of shape as the Bengals. Cincinnati is (0-2) and has not scored a touchdown yet this season. After being shutout in week one by the Ravens, they did score nine points against Houston last week.

 

It appears to be a nice rebound game for Green Bay as they look to win their first two home games for the fifth consecutive season and for the seventh time in the last eight seasons. The Packers have played well at Lambeau Field as they have notched five consecutive wins at home.

 

It is the fifth time in six years that Green Bay is starting the season (1-1). They have won seven of their last eight regular season games and hope to get back to their winning ways at 3:25 Pm Sunday.

Signed Cleats Given Away At Red Zone Last Night


By Nick Freimuth




Green Bay Packers rookie defensive lineman Montravius Adams made his first appearance as co-host of the Jim Olson Motors Red Zone Monday. The former Auburn standout did something unique on his first show. At the end of the broadcast he challenged the WRLU Team of the Week, the Southern Door 4th and 5th grade football team, to a push up contest.  Two winners were named and each of the young Eagles received a signed cleat.  Not just any cleat either. It was the pair of cleats that Adams wore when he ran the fastest 40 time for a nose tackle at the 2017 NFL Combine.

 

Packers rookie Chris Odom was Adams special guest last night and also got in on the push up contest. The show was filled with laughs, handshakes and lots of fan interaction. Every Monday night two Green bay Packers players make their way to Sturgeon Bay's Jim Olson Ford dealership. Next week Brett Hundley and Geronimo Allison will be our special guests.

Sturgeon Bay Soccer Falls 2-1 To Notre Dame


By Nick Freimuth




Likely the biggest home game of the year for Sturgeon Bay Soccer lived up to the hype Monday night. The Clippers lost to Notre Dame 2-1 in a very well played game by both sides. Coach Todd Maas filed the following report:

 

 

Notre Dame gained momentum early and really put the pressure on after they scored off a corner kick that was headed into the net. After that it took us a little bit to ride the emotional wave and get back into the game. Consistency is our biggest nemesis right now. We will have a wonderful sequence of passes that lead us all around the field and get us an opportunity to score in the end. The very next possession we turn the ball back over on the first or second pass. I know we have a very young crew right now, but these guys know better.

 

 

When we do things correctly we do very well. So the potential is there, which is good things to see. Games like this are great for these guys to learn from. I absolutely hate losing right with the rest of our coaching staff and team. But if we don't learn from our mistakes, it makes it even worse. I have confidence in this crew that we can do great things. It's going to take hard work in practice and execution during the games, but I know we can get there.

 

 

Notre Dame scored on another shot from outside the 18 that was redirected off one of our own guys. Nothing really our keeper can do about that. We just need to better to get in front of all shots taken. We did get numerous opportunities to put a few goals in, just couldn't capitalize. Finally with less than five minutes to play we score off a restart that finds Eli with a touch pass to Jaden Stevenson who puts it away to get back to a one goal game. The next few minutes were crazy fast paced. We actually had a couple more looks just could put the final piece together.

 

 

It was a well fought game. Notre Dame was well organized and stuck to their game plan. Hats off to Coach Rickerts and his crew, they played a good match. We have a very busy week with another conference game coming on Thursday at home. Then we play in a weekend quad against much larger schools. This is where we grow as a team and have each other's backs to get better results. I want to thank everyone for coming out to support these guys. They work hard and it's greatly appreciated. – Coach Todd Maas

Brewers Start Off New Series With Win


By Brett Kinnard




The Milwaukee Brewers shutout the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-0 on Monday. Brent Suter started on the bump for Milwaukee and pitched five innings of shutout baseball while striking out four. Corey Knebel came in to shut the door on Pittsburgh and earn his 36th save of the season.

Ryan Braun kicked off the scoring in the top of the fourth with a solo shot to give Milwaukee the lead for the first time in the game. Neil Walker and Travis Shaw each added RBI singles later in the game to seal the deal. The Brewers now sit three and a half games back in the division and two games back in the wildcard.

Milwaukee will now take on Pittsburgh in game two on Tuesday. First pitch being thrown out at 6:05. 'The Crew' is now just two games back of the Rockies for the final wild card spot and 3.5 games back of the Cubs in the NL Central.

Ron Wolf Way Dedicated Today In Ashwaubenon


By Green Bay Packers




The Green Bay Packers and the Village of Ashwaubenon on Tuesday at 1:30 p.m. will officially dedicate a new roadway in Ashwaubenon as "Ron Wolf Way" in honor of the former Packers general manager. The public is invited.

 

The proposal was formally approved at the Aug. 22 Village Board meeting, and street signs will be installed tomorrow, with a dedication that will be attended by Wolf, Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy and Village of Ashwaubenon President Mary Kardoskee.

 

The new roadway is between Brookwood Drive and Blue Ridge Drive, a section of the street that was relocated in order to provide better access and traffic movements around the newly developed Titletown.

 

Wolf, a Pro Football and Green Bay Packers Hall of Famer, was the executive vice president and general manager for the Green Bay Packers from 1991-2001. Under Wolf, from 1992-2000, the Packers compiled the second-best regular-season record in the NFL (92-52, .639) while recording seven consecutive winning seasons (1992-98) and six straight playoff appearances (1993-98). While Wolf made many moves to shape the Packers into a consistent winner, he made three key transactions early in his time in Green Bay: hiring Mike Holmgren as head coach, trading for quarterback Brett Favre and signing Hall of Fame defensive end Reggie White. Those key pieces helped the Packers win three consecutive NFC Central Division Championships (1995-97), back-to-back NFC titles (1996-97) and a Super Bowl.

Brewers Win Weekend Series 


By Brett Kinnard




The Milwaukee Brewers beat the Miami Marlins 10-3 on Sunday afternoon. Brandon Woodruff started on the bump for Milwaukee and went seven innings strong only surrendering three earned runs to the Marlins. The bullpen came in relief and held them scoreless.

Most of the scoring started in the fourth for the Brewers. Started off by a Manny Piña RBI single, Milwaukee would go on to score seven more runs that inning to put them up 8-0. They never looked back as they held on to this one 10-3. The Brewers now sit two and a half games back in the wild card and  four games back in the division.

The Brewers will now travel to Pittsburgh to begin a three game series with the Pirates.

Packers Injuries Pile Up In Loss To Falcons


By Nick Freimuth




The Green Bay Packers seem to have this same problem every year. INJURIES! Soft tissue injuries are again the issue for the Green Bay Packers. Both starting tackles and the top back up did not suit up Sunday night. Then Mike Daniels, Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Davon House all left with injuries. Quad and hamstring issues were popping up on both side of the football and certainly played a role in the 34-23 loss to the Falcons.

 

Trailing 24-7 at halftime the Packers were blown out of last night's contest. Aaron Rodgers was routinely taking big hits and having to release the ball much quicker than normal. The lack of experience on the O-line certainly hindered Green Bay's ability to look down field. Instead it was the night of the check down for Rodgers. He finished 22/50 passing for 343 yards, two touchdowns, an interception and a costly fumble to open the second half. The Packers quarterback did become the fastest player in the history of the NFL to throw 300 touchdowns. He did it in just 144 games, 13 games faster than both Dan Marino and Peyton Manning.

 

The ground game was again inefficient. Ty Montgomery carried the ball 10 times for just 35 yards. He did however snare six catches for 75 yards and finished with two total touchdowns. Davante Adams was the top target of the night with eight receptions for 99 yards and one touchdown. Randall Cobb added six catches for 60 yards before leaving with an injury.

 

Green Bay fell to (1-1) on the season and will next host the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday at 3:25 PM.

Brewers fall four games back amidst Marlins' visit


By Cynthia Germain




The pitching staff of the Milwaukee Brewers lost their momentum from the previous night's game early in Saturday's game against the Miami Marlins, leading to a 7-4 loss.  Zach Davies had a long first inning allowing four runs and then two more in the fourth inning.  The Brewers' bullpen struggled to offer relief, having used eight pitchers on Friday.

 

In the sixth, the Brewers showed some new energy, with Braun and Travis Shaw leading off the inning with back-to-back homers to cut the Marlins' lead to 6-3.  It was  Shaw's second hit at Miller Park since August 16th, and the seventh time the team has hit back-to-back homers this season.

 

The Marlins scored once more in the seventh, and the Brew Crew looked to rally at the top of the ninth, ultimately scoring only one more run.  The Brewers tops off the three-game series with Marlins today at 1:10 p.m. at Miller Park, hosting the Maimi team in the wake of Hurricane Irma.  The Milwaukee team then travels to Pittsburgh for a three-game series against the Pirates and ending the week in Chicago, facing the Division-leading Chicago Cubs.

Algoma High School considering move to 8-man football


By Baxter Colburn




Algoma High School is considering a move to 8-man football after numbers for players continue to drop. The low numbers for kids going out for football the past two seasons point a direct path towards converting to the small-sided game, says High School Athletic Director David Robertson. Robertson outlines how to possible move would affect the program and school moving forward.

 



Area schools like Gibraltar and Sevastopol hold successful 8-man programs and Robertson knows that a move down to 8-man would dramatically change the perspective of how people view football and understands the concerns fans and players would have with the switch.

 



Robertson goes on to state that if Algoma does make the switch in two years, he fully supports the move and believes it would be the best for player safety and program stability.  

Milwaukee piles runs on late against Miami


By Baxter Colburn




The Milwaukee Brewers (78-69) connected on 12 hits Friday night, leading the way for a 10-2 route against the Miami Marlins (68-79) at Miller Park. Milwaukee is technically the away team in the series as the two-game showdown moved to Wisconsin due to Hurricane Irma impacts on South Florida.

Four different Brewers homered, including a Neil Walker grand slam in the eighth inning. Josh Hughes (4-3) snagged the win while pitching 1.0 innings and fanning one batter.

Milwaukee sits three games behind the Chicago Cubs for the top spot in the NL Central and two and a half game back of the Colorado Rockies for the final NL Wild Card position. The Brewers hit the diamond again today at 6:10 pm.

Eagles Use Big Second Quarter In Route Of Wolves


By Nate Alberts



Southern Door took a 35-0 lead into halftime and never looked back beating the Algoma Wolves 49-0 Friday night.


Adam Gutschow got the Eagles scoring started with a 1-yard run at the 5:37 mark in the first quarter following a defensive turnover. That would be the only score in the quarter.


The second quarter was the best second quarter the Eagles played all year. The defense forced four turnovers including a 42-yard strip fumble touchdown by defensive lineman Jason Columb. On the offensive side Kyle Daoust threw a 19-yd touchdown to Andrew Montana and running back Derik LeCaptain had two rushing touchdowns with a long of 27-yards. At the half Southern Door lead 35-0.


In the third quarter, with a running clock, Southern Door marched down the field on their opening possession and scored on Daoust's second passing touchdown this time to Sam Gerend from 10-yards out. That would be the only score in the third and the Eagles lead 42-0.


In the final quarter Adam Gutschow, on the punt team, recovered a punt in the end zone after a ball deflected off a Wolves player for the games final score.


On the night the Eagles defense recorded 6 turnovers and have caused 14 in three games.


Next week the Eagles will host Menominee Michigan in a non-conference matchup at Southern Door.

Spartans hang on for 13-6 victory over Marinette on WBDK


By Paul Schmitt




A packed crowd at the Luxemburg-Casco Sports Complex Friday night saw the Spartans defeat the Marinette Marines 13-6 in a defensive struggle on Senior Night.  L-C struck early on a 78 yard touchdown pass and run from quarterback Garritt Aissen to Austin Tlachac in the first quarter.  The Spartans extended the lead to 13-0 on the first play of the second quarter on a 3 yard run by Nathan Coisman.

Packers Running Out Of Options At Tackle


By Nick Freimuth




The Packers already have some major issues with offensive line depth and we are only in week two of the regular season. Bryan Bulaga did not play in week one and may not play again in Atlanta. Kyle Murphy did do an adequate job stepping up in his absence.

 

This week Green Bay may need to get creative at left tackle. The word in the locker room is that David Bakhtiari will not play Sunday now with a hamstring injury. Backup tackle Jason Spriggs is also likely out Sunday with a hamstring issue. There is not another player listed on the depth chart at tackle so they may have to move Lucas Patrick or Justin McCray from guard to tackle for a week.

 

Here is a look at each injury report released by Green Bay and Atlanta following practice yesterday:

 

Montravius Adams, DT - Foot - Limited Participation
David Bakhtiari, T - Hamstring - Limited Participation
Ahmad Brooks, LB - Concussion - Did Not Participate
Bryan Bulaga, T - Ankle / Illness - Did Not Participate
Jason Spriggs, T - Hamstring - Did Not Participate
ATLANTA FALCONS

Brian Hill, RB - Ankle - Limited Participation
Kemal Ishmael, S - Hamstring - Limited Participation
Alex Mack, C - Back - Limited Participation
Austin Pasztor, T - Chest - Full Participation
Duke Riley, LB - Knee - Limited Participation
Eric Saubert, TE - Hamstring - Limited Participation

Packers Prepping For Falcons


By Nick Freimuth




The Green Bay Packers will be the first team to contend with the noise at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta for the grand opening of the new stadium Sunday. A 7:30 PM kickoff between a pair of undefeated teams in the NFC will garner lots of national attention.


It is the second straight year that Green Bay plays at a new stadium in Week 2. Last season the Packers traveled to Minnesota to help open U.S. Bank Stadium in a great game against the Vikings.

 

It is the third consecutive time Green Bay has faced the team it played in the NFC Championship the next regular season (Chicago and Seattle). It is the fourth time Green Bay has played at the Falcons in back-to-back regular seasons (1982-83, 1991-92, 2010-11). The Packers have won three of the last four regular-season meetings against Atlanta but lost to them in the post season last January.

Packers Defense Key In Win Over Seahawks


By Nick Freimuth




The Green Bay Packers are (1-0) today and that really is all that matters. They trailed 3-0 at half time and held on for a 17-9 victory at Lambeau Field Sunday. Mike Daniels was the player of the game with seven tackles including a sack and a half, a forced fumble and two and a half tackles for loss. The defense held Eddie Lacy to five carries for three rushing yards.

 

It was not a banner day for Aaron Rodgers though either. The leader of the Pack threw an interception returned for a touchdown early. The score was wiped off the board due to a penalty but the interception stood. Rodgers finished 28/42 passing for 286 yards, one touchdown and a passer rating of 86.5.

 

Randall Cobb hauled in nine receptions for 85 yards. Jordy Nelson snared seven catches for 79 yards including one touchdown.

Jordy Nelson Becomes Fourth Ever Packer To Eclipse 500 Receptions


By Nick Freimuth




Jordy Nelson is undeniably Aaron Rodgers top target and has been for six of his ten years in Green Bay. Since 2008 when Jordy Nelson entered the league he has had his ups and downs. Including a season ending ACL tear in the pre-season of 2015 and a NFL Comeback Player of the Year Award in 2016.

 

Sunday at Lambeau Field #87 became only the fourth player in Green Bay Packers history to register 500 career receptions. He joined James Lofton (503), Sterling Sharpe (595) and Donald Driver (743) as the only players to ever eclipse 500. It took Sharpe just seven seasons to compile 595 receptions. Driver played 14 years in the green and gold landing at number one on the list. Lofton snared 530 receptions in nine seasons.

 

The Manhattan, Kansas product ranks fifth in receiving yards, third in touchdown receptions (63) and third in 100-yard receiving games (25). Nelson has a chance to land atop just about every Packers regular season receiving record by the end of his career. Nelson was quoted this pre-season stating he believes he has four years left to make his mark in the NFL.

 

The post-season is when Jordy Nelson seems to be at his very best. He is the all-time leader in playoff receptions in the history of the Green Bay Packers with 54. Nelson also joined Greg Jennings in 2010 by hauling in 21 catches in a single post season; also tops in team history.

 

His impact on the field has been incredible, however it is his mild mannered, humble and kind demeanor that has etched himself as a fan favorite forever in Titletown. He has also endeared himself to the fans by hosting the annual Jordy Nelson Charity Softball Game at Fox Cities Stadium the last three years.

 

A great player and great man wears number 87 for the Green Bay Packers. Jordy Nelson has time to quite possibly become the best wide receiver in the history of the Green Bay Packers if his production continues at his current pace for the next four-plus seasons.

Brew Crew Moving Up in Division


By Cynthia Germain




The Milwaukee Brewers put the smack down on the Chicago Cubs last night, 15-2, in the second game of a three game series.  Chase Anderson showed strong through the first five innings with only one walk and a single after 67 pitches. The pitching staff continued to shut out the Cubs into the eighth inning until Kyle Schwarber homered with one out.  Brewers leadoff man Perez had a very good day, going 2-for-4 with the sac fly, a two-run homer in the fifth and a two-run single in the sixth.  The Cubs were only able to squeeze out one more score in the bottom of the ninth.

Just three games out from taking the division, the Brew Crew is looking to sweep the Cubs today at 1:20 p.m. at Wrigley Field.

Sturgeon Bay ties Prairie 0-0


By Coach Todd Maas




A great game to be a part of. Intensity, physical, fast paced, and great energy. This was fun soccer!!! Most of our guys on this squad have never been apart of a game of this magnitude, it feels like playoff time. Two teams with great respect for each other that play hard, physical but still clean soccer. They took it to us the first portions of the game, until our guys settled in a bit. We had to figure out in a quick hurry how to match Prairie's speed of the game and physical play. For some of our guys it was baptism by fire. I really like the way responded. The second half we played with much more confidence and composure moving the ball well. Each team had a couple great opportunities to score, just couldn't find it. We had put one in later in the second half, but it was a crazy offside situation, that the ref got completely right, that probably will never happen again for these guys. But that's soccer..... we had other chances that we should have capitalized on. Prairie had a few chances as well, Trent and our D came up big on a few, with another getting smoked off the right side pipe from about 25-30 yards out. That ball was drilled!!!! We lucked out there. I'm extremely proud of these guy for battling and playing the way we did. Some of our guys grew up a ton in the matter of 90 minutes. Now they know that this should be the norm, that is how we need to play all the time. No time to sit back though we play Janesville Craig who smashed Hale last night 9-0. We will have our hands full again.

In the second, Southern Door tied the game at the 9:57 mark on LeCaptain's lone rushing touchdown of the game.



Following an interception from the Eagles defense, Southern Door made it 14-7 on a 27-yard pass and catch from Kyle Daoust to LeCaptain on a 4th and 15.

With 39 seconds left Kewaunee had the ball and found the endzone on a Bultman to Michael Halada jump ball at the goalline to make the score 28-27 Southern Door. The Storm went for two but after the ball from Bultman got tipped it was intercepted for LeCaptain's second interception on the night.



Southern Door was able to get the onside kick and take two knees to run out the clock.



LeCaptain finished with 127 yards receiving on four catches. Daoust finished 12-of-19 for 192 yards and two scores. Sam Gerend and Andrew Montana also recorded interceptions. Kyle Malcore recovered a second quarter fumble. On the night, Southern Door forced five turnovers.

Sturgeon Bay Football Falls Despite Fine Effort


By Nick Freimuth




What a week for father and son. Coast guard hero Marc Moore coordinated the rescue of 5,900 Hurricane Harvey victims in Houston, Texas earlier in the week. Son Anthony Moore tallied a total of 317 yards rushing and receiving for the Clippers Football Team Friday night. The Moore's have plenty to celebrate after the impact each had on their teams.

 

Sturgeon Bay fell to Norway, Michigan 30-23 after playing their finest game of the season on 104.1 FM WRLU. A nearly three-hour commute to the U.P. did not slow Moore and his teammates. Ethan Knipfer finished 14/22 for 195 yards, two touchdowns and did a great job creating for the Clippers. Jarred Van Bramer was the leading receiver with six receptions for 52 yards and two touchdowns.

High School Soccer Thursday Night Results


By Nick Freimuth




It was the "Stevenson Show" Thursday as the Sturgeon Bay Clippers beat N.E.W. Lutheran 6-0 in varsity soccer. Coach Todd Maas was not satisfied with his teams effort Thursday however, "We got the result we were looking for, but the quality wasn't always there. We left way to many great opportunities to but the ball in the back of the net on the pitch. We would have some really good passing and movement, build up was great, but the final piece we had a lack of concentration and execution. Our back third played well, still had a few miscues that we need to clean up. A couple we should have paid for. I thought their goal keeper played a great game, saving numerous shots. A few of them where well hit balls that he had great saves on."

 

Jaden Stevenson scored two goals. Owen Stevenson, Carson Dvorak, DJ Riechel and Eli Dietzel all scored a goal apiece.

 

Maas added, "We will be up against the #1 ranked team in the state at this moment in D4, Prairie School, tonight at 7:00pm. And tomorrow at noon, we play Jainsville Craig a Division 1 school in the Milwaukee area. This will be a great test for our guys to see where we stand."

 

 

Gibraltar/Sevastopol co-op soccer lost a heartbreaking game last night to Kewaunee by a score of 4-3.  The lead went back and forth several times with both teams playing a very physical game.  Scoring for Gibraltar were Jose Tlatempa, Evan Lardinois, and Kiegen Sargent.  On September 14th Gibraltar/Sevastopol will host Sturgeon Bay at home.

 

Luxemburg-Casco lost to Marinette 3-1 in a Northeast Conference game. Adam Arendt scored the lone Spartan goal. Spartans goalie Cade Peppin made eight saves in the loss.

Don't put that kayak away yet!


By Bill Schultz




It's Labor Day Weekend, the unofficial end of summer.  But, fall in Door County can be the best time of the year for kayaking and kayak fishing!

 

When you take all the beauty of the bluffs and beaches, and add the fall colors, it just doesn't get any better than that.  And, over the next couple of months as the water begins to cool, those big smallmouth bass and other species will start their feeding binge to get ready for winter.  So, from late September through mid-November fishing will improve and you could have a shot at catching, photographing and releasing a real trophy.

 

During summer, many of those big smallies have gone deeper, but, once the water begins to cool, they will start roaming and coming into shallower water making fishing for them from a kayak easier.  I'll be on the water several times this fall using two presentations I've talked about before.  One is the Ned Rig with the Z-Man Finesse TRD and TRD TubeZ soft plastic lures.  The other is swimming a Kalin's Lunker Grub on a jig.  Both should provide lots of action this fall.

 

I kayak fish from Jackson Kayaks and use Bending Branches and Aqua-Bound paddles.  If you've been thinking about upgrading your fishing or recreational kayak and paddle, this is a great time to check out one of our local outfitters.  They will be having great sales on un-sold inventory and demo boats and paddles.

 

On a cautionary note, as the water cools, please be aware of weather conditions.  Always wear your PFD, take your phone in a waterproof bag and let someone know where you are fishing or paddling.

 

So, don't put that kayak away yet!  As always, if you have any questions please email me at kayakfishingwisconsin@gmail.com.

Brewers fall 3-2 against Washington


By Cynthia Germain




After successfully overcoming the Washington Nationals in the first two game of the series, the Milwaukee Brewers dropped game three by a score of 3-2. Brewers left-hander Josh Hader posted a great showing on Friday did not translate into Saturday's game with Michael A. Taylor smashing Hader's first pitch for a tying solo homer. Trea Turner hit a go-ahead double later in the eighth to lift the Nationals to a 3-2 win.

 

The loss dropped the Brewers a season-worst 4 1/2 games behind the surging Cubs in the National League Central, and further shifted the focus to the chase for the NL's second Wild Card. The Brewers remained 1 1/2 games behind the Rockies in that race after Colorado lost to Arizona.

 

The Brew Crew get a final whack at the Nationals on Sunday at 1:10 p.m. at Miller Park.

Milwaukee blanks Washington 1-0 at Miller Park


By Baxter Colburn




The Milwaukee Brewers kept their playoff hopes alive with a 1-0 victory of the Washington Nationals at Miller Park Friday night. A game that saw 10 Brewers go down swinging thanks to hot pitching from Nationals Tanner Roark. A solo home run in the 1st inning by Neil Walker was all the Crew needed to claim their 71st win of the season. Ryan Bruan exited the game in the first inning after arguing with the home plate umpire to make for one memorable leadoff inning.

Milwaukee trails the Chicago Cubs by 3.5 games but only trails the Colorado Rockies by 1.5 games after their loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks yesterday.

The Brewers take on the Nationals in game three from Miller Park tonight at 7:10.

Oconto tied the game in the third quarter on Parker James second of three touchdown runs. That would be the score after three, 21-21.

Sturgeon Bay & L-C Soccer Win Big Thursday


By Nick Freimuth




Sturgeon Bay Soccer is off to an incredible start to the season. Last night, the Clippers opened up conference play with a  5-0 shutout of Algoma. Wolves Coach Brian Dawson was pleased with his teams efforts in the loss.

 

"I really like where we are as a team. This score doesn't reflect where we are as a group. We have a swagger about us this year. We don't get to high or to low. We feel we should've lost 3-0. With us leaving a couple goals on the field. The way we showed up against Sturgeon Bay was very encouraging for us moving forward. In nine years we've never shown up that confident. We are going to be fine this season."

 
Luxemburg-Casco earned their first win of the season 3-1 over Freedom Thursday. Carter Sewell scored two goals in the win. The Spartans saw Andrew Iverson score one goal and assist on another. The lone Irish goal was scored by Brandon Joly  assisted by Hunter Dorn. Cade Peppin had nine saves in goal to earn the win.



On Thursday night Gibraltar/Sevastopol varsity soccer team came from behind to tie Peshtigo 3-3.  Scoring for Gibraltar/Sevastopol were Ben Fitzgerald, Evan Lardinois, and Jose Tlatempa.  "However, what impressed me most," Head Coach Steven Ybarra said, "was how we came back from a 0-2 deficient at half to tie the game. I want to especially recognize Will Albertson, who stepped into the unfamiliar goal keeper position. I would also like to acknowledge our defensive back line including Cole Dvorak, Nick Stoekel, Jack Weitman, and Brady Ash.  While it was only a tie, it felt like a much needed win for our young team."
