Tigers dominate to earn first victory

HOWARDS GROVE – The Howards Grove Tigers put together a complete game as they notched their first football win of the season with a 28-0 rout over visiting Reedsville on a rainy, chilly Friday night.

The nonconference victory upped the Tigers’ record to 1-3 heading into Central Lakeshore Conference Friday night against Sheboygan Lutheran/Kohler/ Sheboygan Christian at Kohler. Reedsville dropped to 2-2.

HGHS rushed for a season-high 251 yards, led by senior running back Alex Strege who had 87 on only 13 carries. The Tigers didn’t attempt a pass.

The Tiger defense was outstanding – holding the Panthers to only 65 yards in total offense and recovering two fumbles which led to touchdowns.

“The Tigers finally put all of the pieces of the puzzle together, led by a tremendous performance on both the offensive and defensive lines,” said Tiger head coach David Schmid.

“On a wet day we played well on special teams too. It was a great tuneup as we head into conference play.

“We have had spirited practices and it paid off. We need to continue progressing each week and competing in everything we do,” said Schmid.

Junior running back Brad Olson had scoring runs of 7 and 18 yards which gave the Tigers a 14-0 halftime lead. The first TD was set up by senior linebacker Luke Stanczyk’s fumble recovery.

Senior running backs Quentin Zettler and Alex Strege had TD runs of 5 and 41 yards, respectively, in the second half to break the game open at 28-0. Senior defensive lineman Drew Akright recovered a fumble which led to Strege’s score.
