Tremper opens by crushing Milwaukee Bradley Tech

KENOSHA — The Tremper football team was missing three key players on Friday night.

For one game, at least, it mattered little.

Nikolai heads talented, veteran Tremper squad


When Tremper football coach Frank Matrise Jr. talks about senior defensive back Hunter Nikolai, a former Trojans’ standout defensive back comes to mind.

That player, 2009 Tremper graduate Kyle Sebetic, is currently in training camp with the New York Giants trying to make an NFL roster. So comparing Nikolai to Sebetic isn’t light praise.

Bradford runs down Tremper


Try telling the Bradford offensive linemen that Thursday night’s season finale was a meaningless game.

Featuring center Chris Benn, tackles Matt Hernandez and Logan Schmaling, guards Steve Melotik and Seth Tinker and tight end Chase Petersen in a starring role, the Red Devils manhandled Tremper, 41-24, in a Southeast Conference game at Ameche Field.

Tremper, Bradford in Thursday showdown


KENOSHA — Thump-thump. Thump-thump. Thump-thump.

Apparently, the Tremper football team has a postseason heartbeat after all.

Tremper gets back on track

An early deficit didn’t bother the Tremper football team on Friday night

Franklin flattens Tremper

Franklin raced to a 41-point lead at halftime in downing Tremper 55-7 in a Southeast Conference football game Friday night in Franklin.

The Sabers (6-1, 5-0 SEC) scored with 7 minutes and 18 seconds left in the first quarter and never looked back.

Oak Creek overpowers Tremper


KENOSHA — The Tremper football team scored on two trick plays, completed a long pass on a bizarre deflection and scored on a fourth-and-goal play in which quarterback Willie Buege did his best Johnny Manziel impression, eluding defenders in the backfield and throwing back across his body to an open receiver.

Yet all that razzle-dazzle wasn’t enough to overcome what was brutally obvious Friday at Ameche Field: The Trojans couldn’t come close to physically matching Oak Creek, rendering all those nifty plays null and void in the Knights’ 38-20 Southeast Conference victory.

Mistakes doom Tremper in loss to Horlick

RACINE — Already struggling to move the ball, the last thing that the Tremper football team needed was to compound its troubles with pre-snap mistakes.

The Trojans committed eight penalties in the second half — seven during a 10-minute stretch — in a 19-0 Southeast Conference loss to previously winless Racine Horlick on Friday night at Horlick Field.

KENOSHA — For much of Friday night at Ameche Field, the Indian Trail football team was its own worst enemy.

Big game for Tremper, Indian Trail


Fellow Kenosha News sports writer Mike Larsen has tried to convince me on a weekly basis that I should be on Twitter.

He has made it his mission to tell me that I don’t know what I’m missing.

Wesley plays big as Tremper blanks Case

RACINE — Prior to Friday night’s Southeast Conference football game against Racine Case, the Tremper offense was introduced to the crowd.

Donovan Wesley was not one of the 11 players called out by the public address announcer.

Determined Trojans grind out victory over Antioch

KENOSHA — If you want to categorize a Week 2 non-conference contest as a “tune-up game,” don’t expect Eugene Shulski to agree.

After the Tremper football team had emerged victorious in a back-and forth affair over Antioch (Ill.), 29-26, Friday at Ameche Field, the Trojans’ junior running back displayed the exhausted signs of playing football in the late-August heat but the massive grin of a postseason victor in the chill of November.

Tremper routs Bradley Tech in opener


KENOSHA — Tremper football coach Frank Matrise wants this season’s team to be improved defensively from last year’s 3-6 non-playoff campaign.

Tremper took a step in that direction on Friday night with a 48-0 shutout of visiting Milwaukee Bradley Tech in its season opener.
