While Friday night’s showdown between Bonduel and Peshtigo was labeled as a week two matchup, the clash felt more like a playoff game.

In the end, it was the visiting Bulldogs that claimed a 28-26 victory as a last second Bonduel field goal fell short.

Bonduel received the opening kickoff and marched right down the field to grab an early lead. Riddik Bohm and Isaac Boldt shared carries to lead the rushing game while quarterback Parker Bohm connected with wide receiver Isaac Garside on a pair of passes.

After the Bears converted two third downs, Riddik Bohm capped the drive with a touchdown run.

Bonduel’s defense carried the early momentum onto the field, and on the Bulldogs’ first play from scrimmage, forced and recovered a fumble to get the ball right back.

Riddik Bohm busted through the line and sprinted 18 yards to give the Bears their second touchdown in under 30 seconds.

Krueger powers Gillett over Menominee Indian

Stopping Gillett junior running back Bo Krueger is no easy feat for opposing defenses. Menominee Indian learned that lesson Thursday night.

Krueger recorded over 300 total yards and scored eight touchdowns to lift Gillett to a 70-12 win over Menominee Indian.

Gillett received the opening kickoff, and in just over a minute, scored its first touchdown. Anthony Carroll broke free for a 61-yard rushing score.

Menominee Indian’s first possession did not go as well, as the team fumbled on the first play of the game before a penalty left the Eagles with a third-and-long. After an incomplete pass, Menominee Indian punted the ball back to Gillett.

After stuffing Krueger on the first play of the drive, the Tigers called a passing play and quarterback Brock Herzog found Krueger open in the flat. Krueger turned upfield and rumbled 35 yards to the end zone.

Area teams ready to hit gridiron again


Leader photo by Morgan Rode Shawano players gather around coach Alan Tomow during the team’s week one loss to West De Pere.

The first week of the high school football season is now behind us.

Bonduel and Wittenberg-Birnamwood each claimed week one wins on the road while Shawano, Clintonville, Marion/Tigerton and Menominee Indian fell short.

Regardless of their week one outcomes, each team is eager to get back on the field.

Bonduel is coming off a 27-12 win over Coleman, which has the team’s confidence level riding high.

“Going into the game, we weren’t exactly sure what we were made of. We lost a lot of key guys from last year, and there were a lot of shoes to fill, especially on the line,” said Riddik Bohm, who rushed for 110 yards and two touchdowns. “We gave up a touchdown early, but we battled back and didn’t look back after that. Getting a big win week one with an unproven team has really lifted everyone’s confidence in one another.”

Explosive Packers avert serious injuries

In comedy, there is always a grain of truth, and sometimes the one-liners are so precise they become catchphrases.

During their preseason Week 2 game against Pittsburgh, a sideline reporter asked Green Bay Packers tackle David Bakhtiari how good this year’s offense can be.

“Very good,” he began, and then looked up at the scoreboard … “should’ve taken the Over.”

There won’t be a 51-34 win for the Packers every week, which would make betting the Over-Under line that Bakhtiari referenced a simple task, but there is reason to believe once again they will go as far as their offense takes them, and that the offense at full strength can outscore anyone.

Not to slight the defense, which produced two touchdowns on interception returns, including one on the first play from scrimmage. Ultimately, it was an exhibition game. The jury is still out on the pass rush.

Big plays help West De Pere pull away from Shawano


Leader photo by Morgan Rode Shawano’s Brayden Dickelman stiff arms a West De Pere defender during Friday’s game in De Pere.

The Shawano Community High School football team knew the challenge that awaited in its week one road matchup against West De Pere.

A year ago, the same two teams met in Shawano to open the season, with the Phantoms claiming a 42-0 win over the Hawks.

Almost a year to the date, the teams faced off again, but this time at West De Pere High School. Despite having different teams, the result was the exact same, as West De Pere claimed a 42-0 Bay Conference win over Shawano on Friday to open the regular season.

Shawano had the ball first in the contest, and was moving the ball well before the drive stalled near midfield.

“We came out a lot faster and more aggressive than in previous years against West De Pere,” Brayden Dickelman said.
