Amherst secured the lead in the Central Wisconsin Conference-Large with a 47-20 road win over Bonduel on Friday.

The Bears’ defense couldn’t contain Amherst quarterback Marcus Glodowski, who ran for five touchdowns and 203 yards for the two-time defending state champions.

“Marcus (Glodowski) was special tonight,” Amherst head coach Mark Lusic said. “He bailed us out when we needed it. He was crucial in rushing and getting those touchdowns.”

Bonduel (4-1, 2-1 CWC) dominated defensively in the first half, forcing three turnovers — one of which led to an Elijah Mastey touchdown run.

Amherst’s offense was able to make up for the mistakes.

Amherst (4-1, 3-0 CWC) ran for 221 yards; Bonduel had 151. The Falcons also topped the Bears in passing yards, 195-165.

Seymour rallied from a halftime deficit to defeat Shawano 27-9 in Bay Conference play Friday at Shawano.

Shawano scored all of its points in the first quarter and led 9-0 at halftime.

“We played a really good first half and then Seymour stepped up and gained momentum,” Shawano head coach Alan Tomow said. “Seymour made some adjustments after half and we just weren’t able to stop them.”

The Hawks (2-4, 2-4 Bay) rushed for 160 yards in the first half but only 45 in the second.

Shawano quarterback Jarrett Laatsch rushed for 113 yards on 19 carries and was 3 of 6 passing for 19 yards.

“It seemed like we were playing a step slower and let our guard down,” Tomow said. “We made some mistakes to give them the lead and then didn’t bounce back.”

Tomow said the mistakes included being outplayed by the offensive line of Seymour (3-2, 3-1 Bay).

New London topped Shawano 6-1 in a Bay Conference match Thursday in Shawano.

“They’re always tough,” Shawano coach Matt Zoll said. “They’ve got a a good program and we have a fairly inexperienced team, so despite the loss I’m proud of how hard our girls have worked this year to be able to come out and win some games on them.”

The No. 1 doubles pair, Sydney Steinbach and Lydia Williams, clinched the Hawks’ sole win, 6-3, 6-2.

“That’s the best we’ve ever played together,” Williams said. “We tried for every point there. We were ready to take them on again.”

Williams said a tough win over New London, 6-4, 6-4, earlier this season motivated the Shawano duo to be more competitive Thursday.

The seniors both played singles last year. They thought making the switch to doubles would improve their game. The move has paid off with seven victories in 10 matches.

CWC showdown: Bonduel hosts Amherst

Undefeated Bonduel faces two-time defending WIAA Division 5 state champion Amherst at home Friday.

Bonduel (4-0) and Amherst (3-1) are tied atop the Central Wisconsin Conference-Large at 2-0.

Amherst, which has not lost a CWC football game since 2013, is seeking its fourth consecutive conference title. The Falcons ranked fifth in the latest Associated Press state football poll in the medium schools division.

“We know they’re the team to beat,” Bonduel head coach James Westrich said. “They’ve dominated this conference, so we’re going to have to go in playing hard.”

The last time these two teams saw each other was Sept. 16, 2016, at Amherst. The Falcons won, 42-22.

“We’re excited about how much we’ve improved as a team, and we’re just keeping our focus each week on getting better as a unit,” Westrich said. “We expect this to be a good, tough football game.”

SCHS grad receives national volleyball award

Miranda Washinawatok, a graduate of Shawano Community High School, was last week’s American Collegiate Athletic Association Women’s Volleyball Player of the Week.

Washinawatok is a freshman outside hitter for the University of Maine-Presque Isle.

“I told my teammates right away that it wouldn’t have been possible without them,” Washinawatok said. “It takes six players to either win or lose a game, so it all came with the help of them and to past coaches and people I’ve been able to work with in volleyball, because I’m only as good as my coaches.”

Washinawatok received the award after averaging three kills per game and hitting .236 to help the Owls to a 3-1 start to its season. Washinawatok led the team in kills in two of the four matches, contributing to the team’s three sweeps.

Washinawatok played varsity all four years at SCHS.
