No slip-ups for Bonduel in homecoming win

A slippery field didn’t hinder Bonduel as the Bears outplayed Pacelli 46-7 in a Central Wisconsin Conference-Large homecoming matchup on Friday.

The Bears’ 393-83 advantage in rushing yards exemplified Bonduel’s domination. Bonduel also held the Cardinals to just 91 passing yards.

“The excitement was huge tonight,” Bonduel senior Jordan Boldt said, “and we really just tried to push past the rain and not let it affect us. It was definitely a challenge, but it just made our team focus more.”

Bonduel (7-1, 5-1 CWC) opened the game with a touchdown drive capped by Elijah Mastey’s 2-yard run. The Cardinals tied the game in the first quarter on Alexander Schmitz’s 4-yard TD run, set up by an interception by Daniel Mitch.

“We started off a little shaky on defense and offense with the interception,” Bonduel head coach James Westrich said. “As the game went on we settled in a little more and got better defensively. I’m happy with how they progressed.”

Long weekend helps ailing Packers


Photo by Jim Leuenberger Green Bay Packers running back Ty Montgomery suffered broken ribs early in the Sept. 28 game against the Chicago Bears. Montgomery has practiced this week with extra padding around his ribs.

After an injury-ridden first quarter of the season, the Green Bay Packers could have some key players back Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.

The Packers had a long weekend to recover after the Sept. 28 win over the Chicago Bears. The much-needed rest allowed several players, including starting tackles David
Bakhtiari (hamstring) and Bryan Bulaga (ankle), to get back on the practice field this week.

“I think it was a pretty big help,” Bulaga said. “Ankle’s feeling better. … Still got some issues I’m working through, but overall, it’s doing all right.”

It also gave Ty Montgomery, who suffered broken ribs against Chicago, and Davante Adams, who was concussed, more time to heal. There’s a possibility both will suit up on Sunday.

“Davante is progressing very well,” head coach Mike McCarthy said earlier this week. “He’s moving along and we’ll do more at practice this week. So that’s a positive sign based on his work.”

Eagles defeat error-ridden Marion


Leader Photo by Jacy Zollar The Menominee Indian High School volleyball team celebrates a long rally during its home win over Marion on Thursday.

Leader Photo by Jacy Zollar Menominee Indian High School senior Sequoia Salgado hit six consecutive service aces in Set 1 to lead the Eagles to a home win over Marion on Thursday.

Six consecutive service aces by Sequoia Salgado energized Menominee Indian in its sweep of Marion in a nonconference match Thursday in Keshena.

Eagles’ errors helped Marion build a 10-5 lead to start Set 1, but Salgado’s string of service aces put the Eagles ahead by one.

“That’s the first time I’ve had a string of aces like that so it felt really great,” the senior said, “but the best part was seeing our girls get the momentum after that. That energy was exciting.”

“We definitely felt the flow of the game change after those serves,” Menominee Indian head coach Jackson Miller said. “They needed that little burst of energy to get them going, get them in the game.”

Veteran John Teller’s lifelong passion for golf became his “saving grace” after returning from the military.

After honing his game over the past several years, he’ll compete against 79 other veterans from around the country from Oct. 8-11 at the Veteran Golfers Association National Championship in Mississippi.

Teller was one of 20 golfers in the central region to advance to the tournament after qualifying at the regional championship in Michigan in August. He is of six Wisconsin golfers in the tournament.

“I’m very honored and proud to not only represent my community, family and branch of service in the military, but also the nation and patriots throughout time that have provided us the freedom to be able to enjoy things like this in our country,” Teller said.

Packers renew deep-rooted rivalry with sputtering Cowboys

Peripheral drama usually isn’t necessary to produce fireworks when the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys get together.

The matter of who’s standing, sitting, singing, kneeling or burning a jersey takes a back seat to a rivalry fully steeped in big-game history.

Before the 1967 “Ice Bowl” – which many consider the most famous football game ever played – there was the late-game interception in the end zone that stopped the Cowboys and pushed the Packers into the first-ever Super Bowl.

Dallas fans still rue the no-catch call in the 2014 playoffs that negated a Dez Bryant reception at the Packer 1-yard line, killing a drive and ultimately enabling a 26-21 win for the Pack.

And, don’t get them started on last year’s playoff thriller.

Tigerton Elementary School kids had the chance to practice like the Green Bay Packers during a Youth Football Outreach Camp on Tuesday.

The Packers hosted the camp as part of the NFL Play 60 program to tackle childhood obesity by getting kids active for one hour each day.

“The running is my favorite part,” fifth-grader Joey Zimdars said, “and diving for the ball like a professional player.”

“You look around and you see all the kids are smiling and having fun,” Packers youth football coordinator Ryan Fencl said. “Whether they go home and are watching TV or playing on their phones or other technology in this day and age, this gives them a way to make sure they’re getting some activity in their day.”

The event was held at Tigerton High School and included about 90 first- through fifth graders. The kids were able to run through football drills including kicking, throwing, leaping for a catch, diving for a touchdown and a relay race.
