Trojans rout Montello/Princeton/Green Lake, win third straight
PRINCETON — Junior running back Nate Oestreich rushed 28 times for 211 yards and three touchdowns and senior running back Peter Mountin added 12 carries for 126 yards and a score as Dodgeland’s football team defeated Montello/Princeton/Green Lake 38-19 in a Large Trailways game on Friday.
Dodgeland (5-3, 3-2) ran for 371 yards on the ground and built up a 31-7 lead after three quarters to become playoff eligible for the fourth consecutive season.
“We ran the ball really well,” Dodgeland football coach Doug Miller said. “Mountin and Oestreich had (almost 350 yards combined).”
Senior running back Dakota Grueneber had the team’s other rushing touchdown. Junior quarterback Tye Bader completed 4-of-7 passes for 83 yards. Grueneberg had one catch for 36 yards. Junior Seth Christopherson had two catches for 31 yards. Senior receiver Zach Yuenger had one catch for 16 yards.
“Bader threw the ball pretty well,” Miller said. “He kept things moving. It was a good game. Our offensive line performed well.”
Montello/Princeton/Green Lake (1-6, 0-4) rushed 39 times for 225 yards as a team, led by Drew Torres rushing five times for 90 yards and a touchdown.
“They played pretty well, really,” Miller said. “They were very willing hitters. Their kids aren’t afraid to run into you. Our style is, we’re going to give you some targets, because we’re coming right at you. There were some mixing-it-uppers. It was a fun one to watch if you were up in the stands.
“For us, it was just a nice game. We only had the ball three times in the first half, and scored all three times. Then we scored the first two, three times we had it in the second half. Then we had to punt and the JVs took over.”
Dodgeland, winners of three straight by double digits, hosts Horicon/Hustisford in the regular season finale for each of these Large Trailways rivals on Friday.
