Algoma football spoils Sturgeon Bay homecoming

The Algoma High School football team entered Friday night playing their best football of the season, shutting out their last two opponents. Algoma did not get the goose egg against Sturgeon Bay but they coasted to a 52-10 win. Sturgeon Bay did all its scoring in the fourth quarter including a safety of backup Wolves quarterback Kaden Vardon. The Clippers touchdown was a 7-yard pass from Anthony Jennerjohn to receiver Drew Price. Price worked out of the left slot, crossing the middle of the field towards the right hash while catching the ball in stride.

Algoma has several big-play threats but Friday it was Carter Zimmerman who stole the show. #10 had five touchdown runs in the first half including scampers of 45, 35, and 20 yards. Sturgeon Bay's defense had Algoma in third-and-long situations early on but couldn't get off the field. Then things snowballed. Algoma went up 52-0 on the first play of the second half before putting things in cruise control.

Sturgeon Bay football hosts Algoma for homecoming

Sturgeon Bay football looks for a homecoming victory with the Door County Medical Center pregame at 6:30 and the kickoff at 7 PM Friday on 103.3 The Clipper. Sturgeon Bay enters the game 0-3 but they haved faced stiff competition in their abbreviated 2019 schedule. The Clippers have already matched up against Oakfield and Wisconsin Heights who are ranked in the Top 10 in the state for 8-player football. 

Algoma is 4-1 so far in 2019 and has given up no points in the past two games. Sturgeon Bay put up 38 in a losing effort last week. The Clippers will need to find ways to score in a similar fashion Friday night to get a win.


Carter leads Sturgeon Bay golf

It was a Bay Conference matchup and West De Pere had the lowest score among the teams with four golfers shooting 401. Sturgeon Bay shot a 452.


Sturgeon Bay will be back on the course on Monday at Northbrook Country Club.

Clipper soccer shut outs Spartans 8-0

Sturgeon Bay boys soccer at Cedarburg Quad

Clippers soccer traveled down I-43 to Cedarburg for a four-team showcase this weekend.

Sturgeon Bay plays again Monday afternoon at Algoma.

Wisconsin Heights wears out Sturgeon Bay

Wisconsin Heights' offense was the real deal. They attacked through the air with precision passing from sideline to sideline. Quarterback Ozur Kepler hit on big passes to receivers Ace Ayers and Jack Fields with the Vanguards scoring on their first six possessions. Sturgeon Bay found its footing though and began to claw back. Anthony Jennerjohn found Jack Schmelzer for two scores in the first half. Then a pivotal sequence began. Jack Schmelzer was dragged down at the 10 yard line after a big pass play. Sturgeon Bay ended up turning the ball over on downs but managed a safety on defense. Following the kick from Wisconsin Heights, Drew Price got loose on a pass down the seam from the left slot and was tripped up by the ankles from behind. A touchdown saving tackle. An interception by Jennerjohn ended that drive. Even with a 65 yard Schmelzer reception on the first play of the third quarter Sturgeon Bay couldn't shrink the deficit below 12 points. 


Severe dehydration and cramping held several starters out and Kepler and Company went back to work. The Vanguards scored at will against freshman and sophomore backups to make the final score 74-38. Sturgeon Bay has Homecoming next week against Algoma.

Sturgeon Bay volleyball dominates Peshtigo

Sturgeon Bay allowed Peshtigo 20 points in only one of its three sets Thursday in its sweep victory in Packerland Conference action.


It was even more lopsided in the first two sets which saw the Clippers win by scores of 25-11, 25-14. The Bulldogs made it closer in the third set, but the Clippers ultimately prevailed 25-20. Scoring was spread out across the roster as Carley Wodack, Hailey DeGrave, and Kasia Klotz each had at least seven kills in the match.

Sturgeon Bay tripped up by Chequamegon

The Clippers football squad fell Friday evening in Park Falls to Chequamegon High School 38-8. Although the final score looks lopsided, the game was far more competitive than Sturgeon Bay’s contest with Oakfield a week ago. The Clippers had just one penalty for the game, a holding call late in the fourth quarter. Last week they suffered multiple delay of game infractions, false starts, and personal fouls.


On a wet, sloppy field with rain coming down ball security remained an issue. Sturgeon Bay had a handful of bad and mishandled snaps. Quarterback Anthony Jennerjohn was intercepted three times by the Screaming Eagles’ Joseph Newbury. The turnovers proved too much for Sturgeon Bay who kept it close for much of the first half. The game was scoreless after one quarter and 16-0 at halftime. Chequamegon quarterback Michael Kirch joined Andrew Wells and Jacob Mertig to pace the Screaming Eagles rushing attack. Kirch kept his own number on an option running right to give Chequamegon its second score with under one minute to go in the first half.


Sturgeon Bay was able to move the football but was held off the board in the game’s first 24 minutes. Their best scoring opportunity of the first half came on a drive that began at their own 17. It ended abruptly after a Jennerjohn fumble on a designed run inside the opponent’s 30-yard line. A long pass play to receiver Drew Price set up the Clippers score in the fourth quarter. Price caught a crossing route and stayed on his feet down the left sideline to the Chequamegon 5 yard line. Sturgeon Bay plays in one week against Wisconsin Heights.

Sturgeon Bay football makes trek northwest on 103.3 The Clipper

The Clippers scored an extra game earlier this month to play at Chequamegon, an independent conference opponent located in between two sections of its namesake forest.

Kick-off is scheduled for 5 p.m. Grant Dossetto will have the action from Park Falls beginning at 4:30 p.m. for the pregame show followed by kick-off at 5 p.m. on 103.3 The Clipper.

Sturgeon Bay falls in eight-man football debut

It was not the start to the eight-man era that Head Coach Jim Adams and his team hoped for when Sturgeon Bay traveled to Oakfield Friday night. The Oaks scored in almost every way possible; through the air, on the ground, returning a kickoff, a fumble recovery, and an interception return. This allowed Oakfield to put points on the board in bunches. The final was 77-24. Sturgeon Bay struggled on offense until Storm Adams was replaced at quarterback by Anthony Jennerjohn. Ball security tightened up and Jennerjohn hit Jack Schmelzer for two scores. The first in the second quarter on a post pattern for 46 yards. The second was a crossing route towards the right sideline from 28 yards out in the fourth quarter. The last score of the game was a 29-yard interception return by Curtis Barganz. Barganz stepped in front of a screen pass in the left flat. Sturgeon Bay was able to convert for two after all three touchdowns.

Clippers begin eight-man era Friday Night on 103.3

For the first time ever, Sturgeon Bay will participate in eight-man varsity football.

The last-minute scramble to try to put together a new slate of games for 2019 netted three opponents. The first of those matchups sees Sturgeon Bay traveling to Oakfield to try and carve up the Oaks Friday night. Oakfield is 1-1 on the year. They were knocked around by Newman Catholic 53-21 in Week One before rebounding for a 25-24 victory against Belmont.
