Green Bay East (0-2) at Shawano (1-1) – Live on WTCH AM 960 & 96.1 FM
The Shawano Hawks are hoping to keep momentum after pulling out a come-from-behind win on the road in Waupaca last week. Shawano christened the brand new Comet Stadium in dramatic fashion, thanks to the stellar performance behind quaterback Jarrett Laatsch. He completed 6-0f-11 passes for 87 yards, but his damage was done with his legs, rushing the ball 29 times for 140 yards and five touchdowns. Laatsch’s performance has him tied with West De Pere’s Josh Blount for the Bay lead in rushing touchdowns with five.

Waupaca (0-2) at New London (1-1) – Live on Frog Country 92.3 FM
New London hung tough in the first half, but ultimately fell to West De Pere 42-14 last Friday. Jack Noffke completed 11-of-18 for 97 yards and a rushing touchdown, but the Bulldogs couldn’t get the ground game working, totaling just 23 yards. Their defense also allowed 394 yards to the Phantoms, the Bay’s best rushing attack. New London looks for their first conference win of the season against Waupaca, a team they took to overtime last year, falling on the road. It’s a game that New London though they could have had last year, and is also one they want to win to show they’ve taken that next step as a team.
Waupaca dropped a heart-breaker to Shawano at home in the first game of their brand new stadium. Leading 21-7 at halftime, Shawano rallied for 28 second half points to take the lead, and a comeback effort to tie the game came up short when Waupaca missed the potentially tying extra point. First-year quarterback Brenden Canterbury turned in a solid performance last week, throwing for two touchdowns and 220 yards. He also led the rushing attack with 96 yards and a score.
The history between both teams dates back to 1945, which New London leads 11-10 all-time, despite Waupaca leading the playoff series 2-1.
