Tigers stampede Oostburg, stay perfect

OOSTBURG – The Howards Grove Tigers dominated on offense and defense as they buried Oostburg, 55-14, in Big East Conference football action here Friday night.

The Tigers raised their BEC record to 3-0 (3-0 overall) and shared first place with Cedar Grove-Belgium. HG outscored Oostburg 27-0 in the third quarter to build a 48- 14 lead.

Oostburg dropped to 0-3 in the league (0-3 overall).

Tiger senior running back Jack Peterson continued to run roughshod over opposing defenses this season – racking up a career-best 202 yards on Friday. Peterson, the beneficiary of strong blocking up front this year, has already rushed for 465 yards.

Peterson ran for four touchdowns against Oostburg, highlighted by 50- and 55- yard scoring scampers.

Senior quarterback Isaac Dirker had three TD passes and a 43-yard TD run for the Tigers.

HG’s defense held the Flying Dutchmen to minus-11 yards on the ground.

“Our offense scored over 50 points for the second week in a row. That is a tribute to how hard our boys are practicing.

The coaching staff has them well-prepared and they jump at the chance to get better each practice,” said Tiger head coach David Schmid.

The Tigers blasted St. Mary Catholic (Neenah), 58- 8, in their previous game.

“The defense continues to be really stingy. We had a tough test with [Tadeo] Maier [running back] from Oostburg but we were able to hold him to 43 yards rushing [on 21 carries],” said Schmid.
