Gibraltar tips Laona-Wabeno on 105.1 The Viking

A slugfest turned into a track meet in the second half as Gibraltar beat Laona-Wabeno in MONLPC eight-man football action Saturday afternoon 28-24.

 

The first half started 6-0 in favor of Laona-Wabeno thanks to the Rebels' Connor Taylor punching in a touchdown from inside the five-yard line. The Vikings' Luke Steebs found Alex Laughlin for a 36-yard score to narrow the score to 8-6 at the break. Laughlin broke through to tie the game with a short touchdown, only to have Clayton Jansesch quickly answer back with a touchdown run of his own. Both teams started to play long ball after that, starting with Laughlin finding Marcus Reinhardt for a 43 yard score after receiving the pitch from Steebs. The Rebels quickly answered with their own 80-yard touchdown pass to Michael Stamper to make it 24-20. Laughlin would find himself a part of another scoring drive, this time on the receiving end of a 67-yard passing play from Steebs. 

 

It was a game of defensive stands for the Vikings, which forced four fumbles on the day while recovering two and made a key play at the end to give the Rebels their first loss of the season.

 

The Vikings are back in action next Saturday afternoon in Green Bay as they take on NEW Lutheran/Oneida Nation. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. and will air on 105.1 The Viking.

Gibraltar hosts matinee against Laona-Wabeno on 105.1 The Viking

It is another week and another different starting time for the Gibraltar Vikings as they host the Laona-Wabeno Rebels on 105.1 The Viking.  Both teams are coming off big week three wins before Saturday’s matinee. The Vikings were able to contain Suring’s Logan Stuart and hit big plays of their own in its 43-24 victory of the Eagles.  The Rebels won in a 48-0 shutout of Lena/St. Thomas Aquinas. In four weeks the Vikings have split their home and road schedule so far on three different days of the week. Gibraltar head coach Mike Peck says they adjusted their schedule accordingly to game plan for what expects to be a tough test for his young team.

Tim Kowols and Jay Kita will have the call Saturday afternoon on 105.1 The Viking beginning at 12:30 p.m. with the pregame show followed by kickoff at 1 p.m.

Gibraltar's Laughlin just wants to win

Put him just about anywhere on the field and Gibraltar’s Alex Laughlin can find success. Laughlin has played major roles in the Vikings’ two wins this season, including last week against Suring when he caught eight passes for 173 yards and two touchdowns while throwing for another score. On defense, he led the team in tackles with 12.5 including three behind the line of scrimmage. Laughlin said in last week’s postgame show that he does not care where he is put and how he is used.

Laughlin is currently second in receiving yards in the conference and tenth in tackles. Gibraltar returns to action this Saturday afternoon against Laona-Wabeno.

 

 




Gibraltar volleyball has no problem with Stockbridge

Stockbridge was no match for Gibraltar's volleyball team on Tuesday. The Vikings picked up a home victory winning all three sets 25-18, 25-11, 25-10. Agne Zukauskaite led Gibraltar with 10 kills and four aces while Abbi Sitte was all over the court adding 20 assists, six kills and five aces.

 

Gibraltar will be back on the court on Thursday when they head to Oconto for a 7 PM start.

Trick play spurs Gibraltar to victory on 105.1 The Viking

Giving up a late first-half touchdown to the host Suring Eagles gave the motivation the Gibraltar Vikings needed to take control of the game in a 43-24 victory Friday night on 105.1 The Viking.

 

The two teams traded scores for much of the first half thanks to Luke Steebs finding Alex Laughlin for a pair of second-quarter touchdowns from 10 and 43 yards out. After the Eagles surprised the Vikings with a 39-yard touchdown pass with just over a minute remaining, the Vikings had a trick up their sleeve ending with Laughlin finding Steebs in the endzone on double-reverse passing play. It was all Gibraltar in the second half, outscoring Suring 21-8 thanks to Brandon Stillman, Steebs, and Sam Lindenberg scoring on rushing touchdowns.

 

Gibraltar will play two consecutive Saturday matinees beginning this upcoming week against Laona-Wabeno in Fish Creek. You'll be able to catch that game on 105.1 The Viking beginning at 12:30 p.m. with the pre-game show followed by kickoff at 1 p.m.

Gibraltar volleyball drops nailbiter to Peshtigo

The Gibraltar Vikings could not put the Peshtigo Bulldogs down in the match's final two games, losing in the end 3-2.

 

After dropping the first set, 15-25, the Vikings came back to win the next two 25-21, 25-17. After falling just short in set four 25-22, the Vikings lost 15-6 in the match's final frame.

 

The Vikings still had impressive performances on the evening led by Agne Zukauskaite with her 16 kills and 17 digs. Abbi Sitte and Sophia Alexander combined for another 14 kills in the loss.

Gibraltar takes aim at Suring on 105.1 The Viking

The Gibraltar Vikings football team hope to make it two in a row on the young season when they travel to take on the Suring Eagles on 105.1 The Viking Friday night.

 

The Vikings' offense got back on track last Thursday during its 52-26 win over Gillett. The output has placed Luke Steebs as the conference's leader in passing yards and two of his favorite targets, Alex Laughlin and Brandon Stillman, in the top three for receiving. The defense will have its work cut out for them with Suring's Logan Staurt rushing the ball at a clip of over 250 yards per game. Like many teams recently making the switch to eight-man, Gibraltar head coach Mike Peck says it has to figure out to counteract Suring using 11-man concepts in its line play.

 

 

Tim Kowols will have the call of Friday's game between Gibraltar and Suring on 105.1 The Viking beginning at 6:30 p.m. with the pregame show followed by kickoff at 7:00.

Gibraltar doubles up Gillett on 105.1 The Viking

The Gibraltar Vikings ran away from the Gillett Tigers in the second half to secure a 52-26 win in their home opener.

 

It was a seesaw battle in the first half with both teams struggling to put the other away on defense. Luke Steebs had his hand in three first-half touchdowns, including two long passes to Alex Laughlin of 63 and 57 yards.

 

It was all Gibraltar in the second half as they scored four unanswered touchdowns. Steebs threw for another two touchdowns and used his feet for a third before being lifted for sophomore Sam Lindenburg. He took advantage of his opportunity and found Brandon Stillman for Gibraltar's final touchdown of the evening. Gillett's Derek Block capped off the evening with his second touchdown of the game, a 13-yard pass to Wyatt Herzog. 

 

The Vikings look to make it two in a row when they travel to Suring. You'll be able to listen to that game on air and online at 105.1 The Viking.

Gibraltar cross country hopes to pack big punch with small team

Despite only having about 10 runners out for the boys and girls teams combined this fall, Gibraltar cross country head coach Joy M. Bastian hopes they will still find some success this season.

 

Four boys and six girls will toe the line for Gibraltar when it hosts the Chief Kahquados Invitational Thursday afternoon. Bastian says despite the small team, the kids have been a joy to work within the season's infancy. Five of the six girls on the team are new to the sport while a leadership role usually reserved for upperclassmen is being seized by the team's sophomores, according to Bastian.

 

Featuring four races, the Chief Kahquados Invitational begins at 2 p.m. as the 5K course loops around Gibraltar's football and baseball fields as well as some time inside Peninsula State Park.

Gibraltar looks for bounce back on 105.1 The Viking

The Gibraltar Vikings football team needed short memories to prepare for their Thursday night match-up against Gillett.

 

Not only did the Vikings have one less day to prepare for their matchup against the Tigers, but are coming off of a 54-6 loss to Florence last Friday night. Ahead of them is a balanced rushing attack of Gillett's Bo Krueger, Derek Block, Andy Lemens, and Anthony Carroll. The four combined to gain 218 yards on the ground in the Tigers' 32-0 win over Lena. During pre-game interviews, Gibraltar head coach Mike Peck echoed sentiments he made after last week's game about getting into a better position.

 

 

Peck says Alex Laughlin and Dominic Krauel are expected to play Thursday night after sustaining injuries early in the Florence game. Tim Kowols and Jay Kita will have the call on 105.1 The Viking beginning at 6:30 p.m. with the pregame show and kick-off at 7 p.m.

Gibraltar and Sevastopol will each play a day earlier this week when the Vikings hosts Gillett Thursday night on 105.1 The Viking and Sevastopol plays at home against Algoma on 104.1 WRLU. Coming off of a 54-6 loss last Friday night, Gibraltar head coach Mike Peck told DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com it has to move forward after a disappointing game on a short week.

 

 

The 11-man teams kept their spots under the Friday night lights with Kewaunee traveling to Manawa, Luxemburg-Casco battling Fox Valley Lutheran on the road on 96.7 WBDK, and Southern Door making the long drive west to face Wausau East on 102.1 WRKU.

Vikings can't catch Bobcats on 105.1 The Viking

The Florence Bobcats scored in all three phases of the game to open a gap the Gibraltar Vikings could not close in a 54-6 loss heard on 105.1 The Viking Friday night.

 

Kaden Schuls scored less than 15 seconds into the game on a kickoff return for a touchdown and was quickly followed up by a touchdown run by William Liebergen. On the next drive, a screen pass from quarterback Luke Steebs went awry and ended up in the arms of Toby Wheeler who took it in for the touchdown. Steebs came back strong on the very next drive, scoring on a  six yard scamper to make it 22-6.  Wheeler would be a part of three more touchdown drives to lead the Bobcats to a 46-6 advantage at the break. With the running clock on, a 90 yard run by Schuls was the only points scored in the second half.

 

The Vikings will have a quick turnaround when the host Gillett at home on Thursday for a 7 p.m. kickoff. Tim Kowols and Jay Kita will have the call on 105.1 The Viking.

Gibraltar heads back to Florence on 105.1 The Viking

The Gibraltar Vikings football team hopes they are able to duplicate the success their basketball team had in Florence earlier this year when they play the Bobcats this evening on 105.1 The Viking. It was February when Gibraltar kicked off their two-day road trip on their way to a sectional berth with a 70-41 win over Florence. The leading scorer in that game, Luke Steebs, will take over for the former MONLPC offensive player of the year Trevor Reinhardt at quarterback for the season opener. New Gibraltar head coach Mike Peck says Steebs has committed himself to being great this season.

Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m. with Tim Kowols and Dylon Klubertanz on the call beginning at 6:30 p.m. with the pre-game show. You will be able to find more about this game, including reaction after the game at DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com and its Facebook page.

Former Gibraltar quarterback Trevor Reinhardt had an impressive end to his high school football career in the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association All-Star Game Saturday in Oshkosh.
