By Ryan BokasThere were a lot of thingsto be excited about if you were a Petoskey Northmanfootball fan on Friday. They came in as league champsand hadn’t lost an in-confer-ence game since October of 2010 and were also bolstering an undefeated 2-0 record.Coming to town was theCadillac Vikings who werealso 2-0 and finished in themiddle of the pack in the Big North conference last year.The night would end in dis-appointment though as the Vikings dominated from thestart to finish and walkedaway with a convincing 44-14 win.There were two constantsthroughout the entire game,the rain, and Vikings juniorQB Jalen Brooks. The everpresent rain never let up andcame down in sheets theentire night forcing bothteams into a more run domi-nant offense, this seemed to work perfect for Cadillac asthey accumulated 346 yardson the ground to Petoskey’s89. The first quarter wasplayed tight as both teamstried to find a plan that would work best in the wetconditions. The scoring start-ed when Cadillac kicker Nick Paquet boomed a 43 yardfield goal in the inclement weather to put the Vikings up3-0. About 3 and a half min-utes later Brooks crossed thegoal line to go up 10-0.Northmen QB Quinn Ameelresponded by throwing abomb to Pat Antonides whoshowed superior handspulling in the pass and scam-pering for the 58 yard touch-down sending the homecrowd into an uproar. When the 2nd quarterstarted 10-7 the home crowd was backing their team in fullforce but this seemed to only motivate the opposing quar-terback. The Viking’s talentedQB Jalen Brooks started put-ting on a show, first scoring from 15 yards out, then againfrom 7, 35 seconds after thathe scored again from 11 yards out. With the score 30-7 Petoskey struck anotherhuge play as Ameel hit up with Tony DeAgostino for a64-yard strike with 31 sec-onds left in the half. Thesmall glimmer of hope forPetoskey was put out forgood less then 15 secondslater when Brooks busted outa 51-yard touchdown for his5th of the half. The rain con-tinued in the 2nd half andJalen Brooks picked up right where he left off as he was theonly person in the stadium tofind any daylight, scoring onthe opening offensive play for the Vikings from 48-yardsout. This was the last of thescoring for either team as therest of the game was playedbetween the trenches withneither team wanting tothrow the ball. Brooks carried28 times for 292 yards and asix touchdowns, one shy of the school mark set in theearly 1950s by Bert Zagers, who went on to play atMichigan State and in theNational Football League with the WashingtonRedskins.Some bright spots for theNorthmen came in strong performances by running back Nick Strobel who hadthe tough job of trying torush against the Vikings stel-lar defensive line led by twingiants of Jack Ford and Riley Norman who are both over 6and a half feet tall and tip thescales at a modest 270.Norman has turned downseveral football scholarshipoffers and will attendMichigan State next year on atrack and field scholarship.Ford, who is listed at 6-6 and270, will play football next year at Eastern Michigan. Onthe defensive side linebackerConnor Reed showed hisleadership by never giving upon any play and coming up with a lot of big tackles.The Northmen travel toTraverse City Central for aleague game on Friday, Sept.14.

By Mike DunnCHARLEVOIX – GiveCharlevoix credit for aninspired effort. Give Grayling credit for coming back in adrenching downpour to pre-vail in the Lake MichiganConference opener.Grayling’s 27-13 triumphpushes its record to 3-0 over-all and 1-0 in the league withthe HUGE showdown athome coming this Friday against perennial rivalTraverse City St. Francis.Even though this isn’t aleague game anymore, it’s agame rife with playoff pointopportunities for bothschools. The Gladiators arecoming off a narrow 12-7 vic-tory over Elk Rapids.Grayling will be seeking itsfirst win ever against theGladiators. The Vikings havecome VERY close the pasttwo years, however.Before Grayling couldthink about St. Francis, the Vikings had to take care of the business at hand andbeat fired-up Charlevoix in weather better suited to water polo. On a night whenthe hard rain put a damperon the Vikings’ high-poweredair assault, it was strong-striding senior Ty Jensenturning on the jets and blast-ing his way to 125 yards rush-ing on the slippery turf andscoring three times. Theother Grayling TD came on a7-7-yard scoot around endfrom silky-smooth sopho-more Scout Tobin. A Grayling victory withouta single touchdown passhappens about as often as Viking defensive coordinatorKevin O’Connell dyes his hairgreen (which is VERY rare).But the resilient Vikingsmade the offensive adjust-ments that were necessary and left town with the “W”safely tucked away.“This was a big test for us,”said Grayling head coach TimSanchez. “We knew Charlevoix would match up well against our offense, andthe elements really affectedus more than I would haveliked. However, CoachO’Connell dialed up anothergreat defensive game plan,and after those early big plays, our defense was ableto shut them down for therest of the game.”O’Connell’s Carnivoresplayed voraciously ondefense after allowing a few big plays early and the young offensive line of the Vikings,featuring two sophomorestarters, showed up big on anight when a successfulground game was para-mount.Sanchez was pleased withhow the offense respondedto the elements and to thechallenges presented by theRayders.“Coach Tunney’s O-Linetoughened up and we wereable to pound the ball withour running backs,” Sanchezsaid. “The fact that we wereable to win this game by basi-cally using a completely dif-ferent offensive game plansays a lot about our players’toughness and will to win.”The Jolting Green Giants of coach Tunney, including “Concrete” Charlie Brown,Nick Smock, Lucas Walesky and sophomore tacklesEmmett Helsel and Tyler Wyman, among others,paved the way for Jensen,Tobin and junior KevinHarris to take handoffs fromQB Jake Swander and launchlike torpedoes through thelake-like conditions to gainpositive yards.Jensen generated 125 yardsin 23 carries to go with histhree touchdowns. Harrishammered out 45 yards in 11tries and Tobin torpedoed to22 yards in seven carries witha TD to his credit.The slinging Swander hadto holster his gun for most of the night. When Swander didgo to the air, he hit nearly 50percent of his attempts, which was pretty good giventhe rain. He connected ninetimes for 120 yards, with jun-ior Tyler McClanahan taking in four for 61 yards, Tobintaking in two for 17 yards andreliable senior ScottParkinson pulling down twofor nine yards. Jensen hadone grab out of the backfieldfor 33 yards.On the defensive side,middle linebacker “Wild” Wes Dean, who is having a whale of a season so far, did-n’t allow the wet to keep himfrom putting the Whack on adozen enemy ball carriers.Fellow linebacker Nick Swiercz, who is also a high-impact player for O’Connell,made six tackles and recov-ered two fumbles. The fierceSwiercz makes a habit of put-ting himself at the right placeat the right time.

Ironmen remain unbeaten with hard-hitting shutoutof Ski Valley South rival J-L in downpour
By Mike DunnMANCELONA – The heav-ens rained down a heaping amount of wet on the mushy Mancelona turf Friday. At thesame time, the “Iron Curtain”defense of the Ironmenreined in the vauntedJohannesburg-Lewiston wing-T rushing attack andkept the high-poweredCardinals off the scoreboard.Mancelona’s 22-0 triumphpushed its record to 3-0 over-all and 1-0 in the Ski Valley South while the Cardinals of coach John Bush slipped to1-2 overall and 0-1 in theleague.This was a typically hard-fought gridiron battlebetween two physical, blue-collar foes who are accus-tomed to facing each other with high stakes riding on theoutcome. For Mancelona, the win meant extending theleague winning streak to 17games and the regular-sea-son winning streak to 20games dating back to the sea-son-opening 12-6 loss tonon-league foe Elk Rapids in2010.For J-L, it meant a loss tothe grinding Ironmen for theseventh straight time. (Thelast time J-L beat Mancelona was a 32-0 shutout in 2005and that marked a streak of 10 straight wins for theCardinals over the Ironmen.)Mancelona head coachDan “Boo” Derrer was natu-rally pleased with the victory over the always-toughCardinals and he was espe-cially happy with the effort of his defense.“We played really welldefensively,” Derrer said. “It wasn’t just one or two playersstanding out; it was the whole defense. The kids readtheir keys and did their job. We told them they had to bedisciplined and not worry about making plays all overthe field. They did that and we were able to keep containthem pretty much.”It was the Dark Diesel, sen-ior linebacker Dalton Sulz,making the big hits in themuck along with fellow inside linebacker LukeSmigielski. The duo led the way once again with fivetackles apiece on a night when the Ironmen fromevery position were making plays all over the field.Defensive end Brandon Scottbarreled in to make five stops while fellow defensive endKevin Schepperley and sen-ior twin brother KyleSchepperley at safety eachmade 4.5 tackles.The Ironmen also forcedone turnover, a first-quarterfumble pounced on by senior Wyatt Derrer. That timely takeaway led to the firsttouchdown of the game early in the second quarter whenthe determined Derrerdashed in from 2 yards away. Wyatt also wiggled and whammed his way into theend zone for the two-pointconversion to put his teamon top 8-0 with 11:02 leftuntil halftime. At the 4:50 mark of thesame quarter Wyatt talliedagain, this time on a weaving 24-yard run, to make it 14-0.Speedy senior halfback Trevor Ackler acceleratedinto the end zone for twopoints to increase the lead to16-0 and that’s the way itstood at the half.Neither team could getmuch offense going in thethird quarter and throughmost of the fourth as the rainprevented either team fromthrowing the ball much andboth defenses did a solid jobkeeping the other frommounting sustained driveson the ground. The hostIronmen finally closed outthe scoring with 1:14 remain-ing when Ackler found theend zone from 4 yards,motoring behind the plowing blocks of center Tristen Fleetand guard Garrett Derrer.“This was a lot like the Elk Rapids game (a 20-14 victory in the season opener),”Derrer said. “We didn’t makea lot of big plays so we had to just grind it out. Joburg wasready for us and played ustough. It was a very physicalgame.”Derrer commended theefforts of Fleet at center andSulz and Garrett Derrer atguards and also noted thefierce blocking of Smigielskiat tight end. Wyatt wound up with 136 yards on 27 carries in therain. Ackler accumulated 51 yards in 17 tries and juniorfullback Logan Borst bustedto 50 yards in 13 attempts.Savvy senior QB KyleSchepperley couldn’t gener-ate much through the airbecause of the soggy condi-tions but did carry the ballfive times for 46 yards.The Cardinals had difficul-ty getting any kind of offenseuntracked on the slippery turf, generating less than 100 yards for the game. Seniorfullback Mitch “Howitzer”Hardy hurled himself for- ward time after time but met with continual oppositionfrom the swarming Ironmen.Hardy finished with a team-high 50 yards in 11 carriesand Dillon Kibby dashed andbashed to 34 yards in 10 tries.Senior QB Alex Payne con-nected for two short passes worth 6 yards.Drake Skowronski was inthe thick of the action defen-sively for the Cardinals,recording a whopping 17tackles on the night. LoganMiller made 15 tackles whileKibby and Payne each accu-mulated 13 stops and noseguard Wyatt Pelton produced10 takedowns.Mancelona takes itsunbeaten record to CentralLake this Friday for anotherSki Valley South clash andJohannesburg is on the roadagainst winless Forest Area ina league showdown.Central Lake (1-2, 1-0) iscoming off a 34-22 decision win over visiting Gaylord St.Mary.“They’ve only won onegame but they’ve playedpretty tough and they’re 1-0in the league after being St.Mary,” Derrer said. “They have some big kids up front.Their backs have pretty goodspeed and they run hard.”Central Lake employs the wing-T scheme on offense.“We have to continue toplay disciplined on defense,”Derrer said. “We’ve told thekids that defense wins cham-pionships. We’ve played real-ly well in all three games sofar. We haven’t given up over200 yards to anyone yet.”Derrer wants to seeMancelona cut down onpenalties when the Ironmenhave the ball.“We have to limit thepenalties and stop shooting ourselves in the foot,” hesaid. “This is a rivalry gameand a league game. The M-88Trophy is on the line and wedon’t want to give it up.”J-L, which went 8-1 last year in the regular season, will look to rebound fromconsecutive losses to InlandLakes and Mancelona with a win this Friday at Forest Area.The Warriors (0-3, 0-1) arecoming off a lopsided defeatat the hands of Onaway.
‘Iron Curtain’ defense is difference!

By Ryan BokasIt felt like a college footballgame instead of a high schoolgame on Saturday afternoon when the Gaylord Blue Devilstook the field against theTraverse City West footballteam. The game, played atThirlby Field, where all 3 TCschool play their footballgames has a real college sta-dium feel along with the 1:00o’clock starting time madefor a unique high schoolfootball experience.For the third game in a row the Blue Devils came out hotscoring on big plays early butthe excitement couldn’t besustained as the homeTraverse City team won big by a score of 48-14.TC got things started early driving the ball down theartificial turf in less then 3minutes scoring on a 3-yardpass play from QB Donny Cizek to Griffin Forrester. Onthe Blue Devils first series theelectrifying Trae Hill brokefree for a 33-yard score to tiethe game.That’s when TC West’s QB went on a terror. Before the3rd quarter was over he would throw for 3 touch-downs and run for anotherbumping the score to 34-7 atthe end of the first.Gaylord coach Doug Berkshire made some adjust-ments and the rest of thegame was played much morecompetitively. The defenseled by senior middle line-backer Trent Hunt was ableto penetrate the opposing offensive line frustrating the West QB making him muchless effective.Gaylord’s offense decidedto try the air attack with sen-ior QB Tyler Frisch throwing the ball much more fre-quently to sophomore Collin Watters and the sure handedMichael Skerratt. Both hadstand out plays, but couldn’tsustain long scoring drives.Gaylord’s break out playerof the game was senior full-back Robb Hansen. With theTC West defense focusing oncatching the 2 speedy backs,Trae Hill and Cotton Neff,coach Berkshire decided togo with more power running handing the ball to the beefy 230 lb. Hansen for multiplebig gains. By the end of thegame he had racked up 12carries for 89 yards averaging over 7 yards a carry.Gaylord’s only other scorecame in the 4th when TraeHill scored again from 9 yards out. The Blue Devilsare in action again Friday  when the travel to Cadillac totake on the undefeated Vikings and their dynamicQB Jalen Brooks who has sofar had his way with oppos-ing defenses.

By Mike DunnPELLSTON – It wasn’t easy or pretty, but the PellstonHornets of first-year coachBen Schley pushed theirrecord to 3-0 with a tense 7-6victory over visiting RogersCity. The Hornet victory in adrenching downpour alsogave them a 1-0 mark in theSki Valley North while theHurons, who gave a gritty effort in defeat, slipped to 0-3and 0-1.Pellston’s lone TD in the2012 home opener came inthe first quarter on a 3-yardtoss from senior QB Austin Wright to angular receiverDale Stark after Wright fakedinto the line and the long-armed Stark – the Hornets’answer to the Lions’Megatron – hauled in themissile. Stark then added what proved to be the crucialpoint-after kick in spite of therain and slick conditions.Rogers City responded with its TD on a long pass totrim the Hornet lead to 7-6.The visiting Hurons opted togo for two points in the rainbut Pellston stuffed it. That would end the scoring on anight when both teams bat-tled the wet turf.The predatory Pellstondefense forced five turnoversin the contest, including interceptions from “Nitro”Nick Nathan and “Kave Man”Kurtis Spencer and fumblerecoveries from opportunis-tic Chase Woods, JaredReiman and Travis Matthews.Pellston moved the balleffectively at times with itstight-T attack, though theHornets were not able to visitthe end zone again. One big key to the victory, though, was a time-munching, yard-chewing seven-minute drivein the fourth quarter thatkept the Huron offense onthe sidelines.Time after time, Wrighthanded the ball to Nathanand fellow halfbacks JakeFriedenstab and Chase Woods and fullback JustinPrice and they poweredbehind the blocking of B.K.Boomer Baylon Kerr, Alex Readmond, Mark Staley, Mr.Matthews and company tokeep the chains moving.Nathan navigated his way through the muck and mire,motoring and maneuvering to a game-high 75 yards of real estate. Price was right,too, with his bull-like block-ing and plow-ahead running,stomping to 69 yards.Friedenstab and Woods eachadded 21 yards.Linebacker Justin Woolever was a wild man inthe rain, flying to the footballand making a team-highnine stops. Matthews andSpencer each had seven take-downs and Price ploweddown five ball carriers.Pellston has not had a win-ning record since 1995. Thatis also the last year theHornets started a season 3-0.Schley’s troops will try tomake it 4-0 this coming Friday when Rudyard comescalling for another Ski Valley North clash. The Bulldogscome in with a winlessrecord.
Hornets prevail in downpour!
Pellston holds on to edge Rogers City, push record to 3-0 overall and 1-0 in Ski Valley North

GRAYLING -- TheDepartment of NaturalResources will host openhouses on Tuesday, Oct. 9, in Atlanta and Thursday, Oct.11, in Grayling to provideinformation and receivepublic comment on pro-posed forest managementtreatments for 2014 in the Atlanta management unit, which includes Alpena,Cheboygan, Montmorency and Presque Isle counties;and the Grayling manage-ment unit, which includes Alcona, Crawford, Iosco andOscoda counties. The openhouses are set for the follow-ing times and locations:Oct. 9, 2 to 6 p.m. at AtlantaField Office, 13501 M-33, Atlanta (will cover proposedforest treatments in Alpena,Cheboygan, Montmorency and Presque Isle counties)Oct. 11, 1 to 6 p.m. atGrayling Field Office, 1955Hartwick Pines Road,Grayling (will cover proposedforest treatments in Crawfordand Oscoda counties)Each year, DNR personnelevaluate one-tenth of thestate forest. The inventory provides key decision-mak-ing information for forestersand wildlife, fisheries andother resource managers.The age, health, quality andquantity of trees and othervegetation are assessed toenable DNR staff to makeinformed decisions. Timbermanagement, wildlife andfisheries habitat, minerals,archaeological sites, recre-ational use, wildfire potentialand social concerns are justsome of the topics taken intoconsideration during thisreview.Because the forest is inven-toried approximately two years in advance, a year of entry is assigned to indicate when treatments will be pre-pared. Information currently under review has a 2014 yearof entry. This means thattreatment activities on landsbeing reviewed this year willactually begin in 2014.Proposed treatments, which may include timberharvesting, replanting andother management activities,are designed to ensure thesustainability of all forestresources.Bill O’Neill, chief of theDNR’s Forest ResourcesDivision, said these openhouses are a good way forinterested residents, neigh-bors and stakeholders tolearn – well in advance –about the DNR’s proposedtreatment plans and to shareinput toward final decisionson those treatments.“When it comes to thehealth and sustainability of our state forests, we’re alwaysthinking several yearsahead,” said O’Neill, whoalso serves as state forester.“We like to do the open hous-es around the state becausethe public gets an opportuni-ty to talk with foresters andbiologists about issues thatmatter most to them. It turnsout to be a valuable exchangeof information and ideas.”To more easily and effi-ciently oversee the forestresources, the DNR divideseach management unit intosmaller units or "compart-ments." This year, the com-partments under review arein Grant Township(Cheboygan County);Bearinger, Ocqueoc,Bismark, Allis and Krakow townships (Presque IsleCounty); Montmorency, Vienna, Briley, Hillman and Albert townships(Montmorency County); Wellington, Long Rapids, Wilson and Ossineke town-ships (Alpena County);Frederic, Grayling, BeaverCreek, South Branch, Lovellsand Maple Forest townships(Crawford County); andGreenwood and Elmer town-ships (Oscoda County).Maps, information andother proposed treatments will be available at the openhouses. The information canalso be found at www.michi-gan.gov/forestplan under theForests, Land & Water sec-tion. Compartment review packets for the 2014 year of entry can be found by click-ing the “Atlanta” or“Grayling” buttons on theshown map. Records of deci-sions, recorded timber har-vests and other treatmentsfor past years are available onthese pages.On Tuesday, Oct. 23, and Wednesday, Nov. 7, the DNR will complete its formal com-partment reviews to decideon final treatment plans forthese areas.
