Bonduel defense grounds Chargers

Bonduel forced five turnovers and converted them all into points to beat Wittenberg-Birnamwood 62-14 in Central Wisconsin Conference-Large action Friday.

The Bears’ defense recorded two fumble recoveries and three interceptions, two of which they returned for touchdowns.

Jacob Banker intercepted a Trevor Groshek pass on fourth-and-6 and returned it 84 yards to close the first half. Isaac Banker added a 34-yard pick-6 to open the second half.

“Our goal is always to get better, and I think a difference maker in tonight’s game is how hard we prepared this week,” Bonduel head coach James Estrich said. “Defensively, they were aggressive tonight. They did a nice job executing and blocking on those interceptions so we could gain some yards.”

Isaac Garside scored three Bonduel touchdowns in the first half, including one set up by a Witt-Birn fumble.

Shawano and Bonduel both advanced to WIAA sectionals Wednesday with fourth-place finishes in their respective divisions.

Shawano secured the final qualifying spot at the Division 1 regional at Brown County Golf Course in Oneida. Bonduel advanced through the Division 2 regional at Mid Vallee Golf Club in De Pere.

This is the first time Shawano has qualified for sectionals during head coach Dean Kugler’s five years with the team.

“This is a huge step for us,” Kugler said. “Normally we can’t keep up with the top teams, so for us to be able to play alongside them and qualify for the next round is a big accomplishment.”

The Hawks, who were just shy of sectionals last year with a fifth-place finish, shot a 405, finishing behind Notre Dame (385), Bay Port (386) and Pulaski (388).

Shawano was led by all-conference first team seniors Brianna Zook (91) and Brinley Kowalkowski (98) on the par-73 course.

NFL’s oldest rivalry revisited as Packers host Bears

After all of the sideline demonstrating, the ticket-holder remonstrating and the executive agitating during the pre-game lead-ups, there was actually professional football being played this week.

If it’s hard to remember when the game had ever been so politicized, it’s because no such time has existed. The national anthem has taken on a polarizing life of its own, with players uniting to protest the quality of life here, and some fans protesting the protest by renouncing the NFL altogether.

It’s made you pine for the days when anthem controversies involved a simple, unintentional slaughtering of the tune – like the one by the reigning Francis Scott Off-Key of our era, Carl Lewis (whose version, if you’ve never heard it, is sadistic comedy gold).

As it is, there are public figures up to and including the Oval Office weighing in with incendiary remarks, ensuring that the nation’s division continues unabated.

Shawano continues to reign at home after sweeping Bonduel during Monday’s “Win the Battle” pink match.

The Hawks edged Bonduel 25-16, 25-17 and 25-18 after a slow start.

The Bears tallied a quick five points to open the first set and forced Shawano head coach Breanna Young to call a timeout.

“This is our house,” Young told her girls. “We need to change our mental game and play the game we know how to play.”

Bonduel errors gave the Hawks a chance to gain the momentum. After a Tori DePerry attack tied the score 14-14, Shawano took the lead for the first time and kept it through the rest of the set.

The Hawks (20-6, 2-1 Bay Conference) held a four-point lead in Set 2 before Bonduel rallied with a Grace Petcka tip, two kills and a Hawks service error to even the score 12-12. Shawano responded and Averi Vomastic ended the game with a kill.
