Stratford placed seven players on the first team and three more on the second team of the 2017 All-Marawood Conference Football Team, which was voted on by the seven conference coaches.

The Tigers, who finished 9-3 overall and 5-1 and in second place in the Marawood, reached Level 3 of the WIAA Division 5 playoffs before being eliminated by Amherst.

Auburndale, which finished 5-4 overall and 3-3 in the Marawood, had one first-team and five second-team picks. The Apaches won a Division 6 playoff game before losing to Marathon in Level 2.

Senior offensive lineman Aiden Hoffman and senior punter Conner Multerer were unanimous first-team choices for Stratford.

Hoffman led the way for the Tigers’ offense that relied heavily on the running game. Junior Kade Ehrike was also a first team pick after rushing for a 1,062 yards and 21 touchdowns, and adding a team-high 18 pass receptions for 218 yards and four more scores.

Junior Dylan Schoenherr was also a first-team selection on the offensive line for Stratford, as well as earning second-team honors as a defensive end.

“I can’t say enough positive things about Aiden Hoffman,” Stratford coach Jason Tubbs said. “He makes every block for us in our offense. He has great technique and will be missed next year. Dylan Schoenherr was also another solid lineman for us earning first team on the o-line, and Kade Ehrike has great power and burst at running back.”

Defensively, the Tigers also had three first-team selections, as well as Multerer (36.8 yard average) at punter. All four are seniors.

Jordan Becker was Stratford’s top tackler at outside linebacker with 80, including six for loss and three forced fumbles. Lineman Luke Barten had 61 tackles and three forced fumbles, including one returned for a touchdown, and defensive back Dilan Dehlinger had two interceptions for the Tigers.

“Luke Barten is a high-motor player and was double teamed a lot,” Tubb said. “Dilan Dehlinger has great cover skills and is a sure tackler, and Jordan Becker was consistently our best linebacker.

Auburndale’s first-team selection was senior wide receiver Cale Jacoby, who had a team-high 25 receptions for 373 yards and five touchdowns. Jacoby was also a second-team pick at defensive end, tallying four sacks and seven tackles for loss, including a safety.

“Cale is our best receiving weapon, but his stats didn’t entirely reflect the level of his impact,” Auburndale coach Jay Anderson said. “He was always given a lot of attention form the defenses. He is a solid blocker and gives great effort daily.”

In addition to Schoenherr, sophomore defensive lineman Ben Barten and junior defensive back Okley Wrensch were second-team selections for Stratford.

Senior offensive lineman Samuel Hasenohrl, senior defensive end Colten Yeske, senior linebacker Ryan Isaacson, junior running back and Trayton Weister, and sophomore defensive back Cooper Weinufter join Jacoby as second-team picks for Auburndale.

Weister racked up 119.8 yards per game, including kick and punt returns, Isaacson had 42 tackles, including eight for loss, and Weinfurter tallied five interceptions for the Apaches.

“Samuel played a high level this season, despite it being his first year playing the center position,” Anderson said. “Ryan made the move from defensive end to linebacker this season and really took to the change. He was also our starting quarterback and is an outstanding student with 4.0 GPA, was our team captain, and is a leader by example.”

Jerry Sinz of conference champion Edger was named Coach of the Year, while Marathon players eaned the two top individual awards. Quarterback/defensive back Donavon Free was named Back of the Year, and tight end/defensive end Nathan Stoffel was picked as Lineman of the Year.

CRANDON – The Auburndale football team won a playoff game for the first time since 2014 with a resounding 35-7 win over Crandon on Friday night in a WIAA Division 6 Level 1 game at Crandon High School.

The Apaches (6-4) move into Level 2 where they will face a familiar foe, Marathon (7-3), on Oct. 27 at Marathon High School. Marathon defeated Auburndale 35-13 in Marawood Conference action Sept. 22.

Auburndale senior quarterback Ryan Isaacson threw for 162 yards and four touchdowns, including two to Colton Yeske.

Auburndale trailed 7-6 after one quarter, but from there the Apaches dominated as their defense didn’t allow another score. Crandon was held to 141 yards, all rushing, as it missed on all six pass attempts and Auburndale corralled two interceptions.

Cale Jacoby (4 yards), Cam Ertl (24), and Yeske (26 and 16) caught the TD strikes from Isaacson, who completed 13 of 19 throws.

Trayton Weister added 109 yards rushing and Isaiah Hasenohrl had Auburndale’s final touchdown on a 2-yard run late in the fourth quarter.

“It was an exciting win for us as a football program,” Auburndale coach Jay Anderson said. “The kids worked very hard and then showed the determination needed to get a playoff win on the road. Now we have the opportunity to compete and try to extend the season.”

AUBURNDALE – The Auburndale football team scored six unanswered touchdowns to blow open a game that was tight after one quarter and blew out Whitehall 56-6 in a nonconference game Friday night at Auburndale High School.

AUBURNDALE – The game couldn’t have started any better for the Stratford football team in its game Friday night against Auburndale.

Stratford needed just five offensive plays to score a touchdown, and the Tigers forced a fumble on Auburndale’s first play and scored four plays later to build a quick two-touchdown lead that set the tone in a 40-7 victory at Auburndale High School.

With the victory Stratford ensures itself of a WIAA playoff berth for the 26th-straight season. The Tigers also stay in contention for a second-straight Marawood Conference title, improving to 6-1 overall and 4-0 in conference play. Auburndale drops to 3-4 and 2-3 in the Marawood.

“I give our guys credit, they did a good job,” Stratford coach Jason Tubbs said. “Our offensive line kept their feet moving and opened some holes for Kade (Ehrike) and our other running backs to do their jobs.”

Quarterback Mark Handrick had a 27-yard touchdown run on the Tigers’ fifth play to get the scoring started.

Stratford forced a fumble that was recovered by Connor Multerer on Auburndale’s first play of the game, and four plays later Kade Ehrike ran in from the 4 to give the Tigers a quick 14-0 lead. Ehrike finished with 192 yards on 19 carries.

Auburndale was never able to recover, earning just four first downs and only 14 yards rushing on 20 carries against a stout Stratford defense that was in the Apaches’ offensive backfield for much of the game.

“We got behind the eight-ball right off the bat, and against a good team,” Auburndale coach Jay Anderson said. “I really think our guys wanted to come out and compete, and sometimes that really takes the wind out of your sails. They are a tough team to defend.”

Auburndale’s defense held on Stratford’s next three possessions before the Tigers finished the first half with a pair of scores.

A 29-yard run by Jordan Becker set up a 3-yard touchdown run from A.J. Schoenfuss to give Stratford a 20-0 lead with 4:11 to go in the first half.

A 53-yard kickoff return by Trayton Weister put Auburndale in scoring position, but the Apaches were stopped at the 9 after three consecutive incomplete passes.

Ehrike raced 70 yards on Stratford’s first play of the next possession and scored his second TD from the 6 with 28 seconds to go before halftime. A two-point pass from Handrick to Becker made it 28-0 at intermission.

“He has a burst that I haven’t seen in a running back in quite a while,” Tubbs said of Ehrike. “He reminds me a lot of Matt Olson and Chris Olson back in the day. He’s fun to watch, he’s a great athlete, and a three-sport athlete that you don’t see a lot of anymore, and good at all three. I’m really happy he’s on our side.”

Becker and Schoenfuss added rushing touchdowns in the second half, and Auburndale scored its only touchdown on a 65-yard pass from Ryan Issacson to Cale Jacoby with 8:14 remaining in the game.

The Apaches remain in playoff contention. If they win at winless Chequamegon next Friday, Auburndale would finish 3-3 in the Marawood, making them playoff eligible. Teams that finish .500 in its conference are not guaranteed a spot in the postseason, but it is rare that they are kept out.

Anderson said he wants his team to stay focused on the task at hand and not overlook the 0-7 Screaming Eagles.

“We focused on coming into the season was being able to compete and get these guys in the mindset to be focused on team unity, staying together, the enthusiasm and competition, and we really have,” Anderson said. “As far as our execution, we still have a ways to go.

“I had to remind our guys that we can’t take anyone for granted. Our wins haven’t been easy. There isn’t anyone out there that we can take for granted, or should. We can’t lose sight of the fact that we have a 2½ hour trip ahead of us and we need to improve.”

Stratford heads into its final two games at home next Friday against Marathon and Oct. 13 at Edgar with the conference championship in its sight.

TOMAHAWK – The Auburndale football team earned a big road win in Marawood Conference play on Friday night, edging Tomahawk 20-13 at Tomahawk High School.

Quarterback Ryan Isaacson scored on a 3-yard touchdown run with just 9 seconds remaining to lift the Apaches to the victory in a back-and-forth game.

The win improves Auburndale’s record to 3-2 overall and 2-1 in the Marawood Conference. The Apaches will need to win just one of their final four games break even in the conference and likely earn a second-straight WIAA playoff berth.

Tomahawk is now 1-4 overall and 0-3 in the Marawood.

Auburndale pulled out the win with a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns.

Jacob Peplinski scored on a 14-yard run in the first quarter to put Auburndale ahead and the Apaches led 7-0 at halftime.

Tomahawk tied the game with a third-quarter touchdown pass before Auburndale pulled back in front on a 3-yard touchdown run by Ryan Isaacson in the opening minute of the fourth quarter.

After Tomahawk tied the game again with a TD pass with just 2:31 to go, the Apaches drove down the field, and Isaacson ran in from the 3 with just 9 seconds remaining to lift Auburndale to the victory.
