Tremper Football

Antioch zooms past Tremper

In the first two quarters of Friday’s non-conference game with visiting Antioch (Ill.), Tremper had everything going its way.

That all changed at halftime.

Whatever Antioch coach Brian Glashagel told his players at the break, he might want to write down for future reference. The Sequoits erased a 13-7 deficit with 38 unanswered points to start the second half on their way to a 52-20 victory over the Trojans.

Mistake-prone Tremper absorbs a thumping from Badger

LAKE GENEVA — Badger High’s football team showed plenty of promise in its season-opener on Friday against visiting Tremper.

The Trojans are equally optimistic for the 2015 campaign, but improvements were shown to be needed after the Badgers handed them a convincing 30-7 defeat.

KENOSHA — What’s the difference between sharing a conference title and finishing in a three-way tie for fourth place?

For the 2014 Tremper football team, it was “probably three or four plays,” according to 19th-year coach Frank Matrise Jr., who was banished from the sideline for the final six games after undergoing back surgery.

Matrise back in the saddle


For about the last half-hour of the season’s first official day of practice on Tuesday evening, Tremper head football coach Frank Matrise Jr. was delegating.

The unmistakable cadence of assistant football coaches — vociferous scolding, immediately followed by encouraging words of reinforcement — filled Ameche Field as the Trojans ran their drills, while Matrise quietly walked from station to station observing.

Turnovers doom Minnesota


ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — After a New Year’s Day bowl game drought of more than 50 years, Minnesota coach Jerry Kill was concerned about his team being nervous in its Citrus Bowl matchup with 16th-ranked Missouri.

The Golden Gophers weren’t tight at all, but after a 33-17 loss Thursday that featured several unforced errors, it’s clear there’s still progress to be made to become the program they want to be.

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.

Turnovers wound Tremper


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.
