Tremper blocks Bradford

In its storied history, the Tremper football program has won three WIAA state titles.

While Thursday’s game didn’t rival that of a championship at Camp Randall Stadium, the result seemed almost as satisfying to the celebrating players and coaches.

Trojans stand between Red Devils and playoffs

No, the high school football playoffs have not started a week early.

It will only seem that way when Bradford and Tremper close out the regular season with their 54th meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday at Jaskwhich Stadium.

Trojans surge past Panthers

After suffering four consecutive hard-fought losses, one could forgive Tremper’s football team if it gave up on the 2014 season.

Turnovers, mental mistakes and just plain bad luck have plagued the Trojans recently. And those troubles continued in the first half Friday when a pair of turnovers deep in Racine Park’s territory resulted in a 0-0 halftime tie with the visiting Panthers at Ameche Field.

Prior to Friday’s Southeast Conference game with visiting Franklin, Tremper had given several of the league’s powers all they could handle before falling a few points short.

That all changed against the Sabers at Ameche Field as the Trojans played giveaway and suffered their most convincing loss of the season 28-0.

Trojans regroup in second half, but fall short at Oak Creek

OAK CREEK — One excellent half couldn’t make up for a dismal one for the Tremper football team Friday night.

After managing just two first downs and 41 net yards in the first half, the Trojans came to life on both sides of the ball in the second half. But a late fumble ruined Tremper’s chances at an upset as it lost 26-21 at Oak Creek in a Southeast Conference game.

Tremper toppled in triple overtime

Tremper suffered its second consecutive heartbreaking loss on Friday night when visiting Racine Horlick pulled out a 33-27 triple overtime victory at Ameche Field.

After dropping its first game of the season last week against Southeast Conference leader Indian Trail by four points, the Trojans (3-2 overall, 1-2 in the SEC) were stunned when the Rebels’ Jason Bogan returned an interception 73 yards for the game-winning score in the third overtime period.

Tremper, Indian Trail in SEC showdown

KENOSHA — I goofed.

In reporting the Indian Trail football team’s big victory over Oak Creek, I got the final score wrong in Saturday’s paper.

In order for Tremper’s football team to continue to have success this season, the Trojans want to get the ball in the hands of their playmakers.

A new wrinkle in Tremper’s offense on Saturday in its Southeast Conference opener against visiting Racine Case did just that, as the Trojans improved to 3-0 with an impressive 31-7 victory over the Eagles.

MMQB Alumni Snapshot: Toneo Gulley

Tremper graduate Toneo Gulley logged his first two collegiate carries for Navy in a 34-17 loss to fifth-ranked Ohio State on Saturday before a crowd of 57,579 at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.

With Navy trailing 20-14, Gulley, a sophomore slotback, picked up 10 yards on his first attempt to give his team a first down at the Ohio State 15-yard line. Navy capped he drive with a field goal on the third play of the fourth quarter to make it a three-point game.

Tremper finishes off victory over Antioch

ANTIOCH, Ill. — When Tremper returned on Saturday night to finish a non-conference game at Antioch, Ill., that had been postponed Friday night because of lightning, the Trojans found the atmosphere quite different.

Gone was the big crowd, along with some of the intensity when the game resumed with less than six minutes remaining in the third quarter and Tremper trailing 12-7.

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.

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

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