Chargers start strong, top Crandon 30-20

Wittenberg-Birnamwood brought energy to Friday night’s home game against Crandon and walked away with a 30-20 victory.

The Chargers’ offense started the game strong, getting into the red zone within the first two minutes of the first quarter. Quarterback Trevor Groshek flicked the ball to running back Gavin Scheurer, who found the end zone for a Chargers touchdown on the opening drive.

Their defense matched the intensity, stopping the Cardinals from gaining significant yardage and forcing a third-and-out.

Running back Dylan Sprague took the ball into the end zone in the next two consecutive series, first finding a hole and running 48 yards for a touchdown, followed by a 9-yard carry after a successful fourth-and-7 run by Groshek.

“I was just happy to help the team out,” Sprague said. “It’s great to have personal success, but overall it’s about helping the team out.”

Take away the turnovers, and the Menominee Indian football team could have stayed with Gillett.

Gillett scored 18 points off three fumbles and an interception in the first half, then kept its offensive momentum in the second half en route to a 49-8 victory Friday.

“We were just not on tonight, it wasn’t like last week,” Menominee Indian coach Chris Clache said. “We came out a little flat. We had some decent plays, but for the most part it was just turnover after turnover, and just so many penalties, too. I didn’t necessarily agree with all the calls, but we definitely had a lot more penalties than we should have.”

Menominee Indian (0-2), which lost a tight 26-22 game to Lena/St. Thomas Aquinas in Week 1, dug itself an early hole against Gillett (1-1). The Tigers outgained Menominee Indian 335 yards to 109.

“It just snowballed a little bit, one thing after another,” Clache said. “It just kind of built up and you saw what happens.”

This year’s Cornys go to …

With only two weeks remaining this season, I felt it appropriate to roll out this year’s edition of the Corny awards.

Much like the Oscars, Tonys, or Grammys; the Cornys are awarded to some of the outstanding performers and performances at the historic half-mile. The Cornys’ namesake, Warren “Corny” Schmidt, was involved heavily with the race program at the Shawano Speedway.

Corny has been a driver, crewmember, car builder, flagman and race director. Now north of 80 years old, Corny is still active in the sport of racing with the Caroline Valley Ice Racing club in addition to attending many Saturday night events at Shawano.

Without further ado, this year’s Cornys:

Shawano loses 3-0 under Clintonville pressure

The Shawano boys soccer team gave up three goals in a shutout loss at Clintonville on Thursday.

Clintonville didn’t score its first goal until the 30th minute, when midfielder Matthew Morse sent the ball through goalkeeper Will Bergner’s arms, but the Truckers controlled the ball from the start.

The Hawks (0-1-1) struggled to maintain possession, which allowed Clintonville to keep the momentum throughout the game.

Hawks head coach Bob Croschere emphasized his team needs to work on offense.

“Everything is a learning experience at this point,” he said. “We learned tonight that we need to work on offensive possession.”

With five of its 11 starters out due to injury, Shawano’s focus will be on giving the younger guys experience.

“We have a young team. Hopefully once we get a couple of the other players back things will turn around a little more, but it’s a good learning experience for these guys,” Croschere said.

Wittenberg-Birnamwood’s senior class set the momentum for the first game of the season in the Chargers’ 24-8 nonconference victory over Northland Pines at home Friday.

Quarterback Trevor Groshek, tight end Cory Fraaza and running back Dylan Sprague — all seniors — led the Witt-Birn offense, which compiled 224 yards.

Groshek completed five of his eight passes for 58 yards and two TDs. Fraaza was the top receiver in the game with four receptions for 37 yards and two TDs. Sprague averaged 5.8 yards per carry, rushing for 52 yards on nine carries.

“A lot of our guys are seniors on the team, and I think that kind of kicked in, so we’re all a little more motivated,” Sprague said. “I think just the ‘one last ride’ mentality is a huge focus for us.”

The Chargers’ defense, meanwhile, kept the Eagles from entering the red zone for all but the one play late in the fourth quarter and allowed them to cross midfield only once in the first half.
