Truckers drop to 0-4

By Erik Buchinger

The Clintonville football team was defeated by Wrightstown 34-0 at home on Friday, Sept. 8.

Clintonville dropped to 0-4 this season and trailed on the first play from scrimmage as Wrightstown’s Ben Jaeger carried the ball 65 yards for a touchdown.

Truckers head coach Tom Burkhalter said he was impressed with the way his team played in the second quarter.

“I thought our second quarter was one of our best quarters of the season,” Burkhalter said. “The other three – not so much.”

Sean Finger completed 8 of 20 passes for 73 yards with one interception, and Bailey Tate had 14 carries for 21 yards for the Truckers.

“We’ve got to figure out our run blocking,” Burkhalter said. “It’s been our Achilles heel ever since that first game when we moved the ball pretty darn well. We thought that was going to be one of our strong suits this year. Clearly we’ve got to work on that.”

Dylan Arnold led the Truckers in receiving with two catches for 30 yards.

Burkhalater said several players impressed him on the defensive side of the ball.

“Isak Jaensch played one heck of a football game,” Burkhalter said. “He was all over the field. Hunter Lohrengel was all over the field, and Riley [Jaensch] had a couple stops at safety as well. Adrian Forsberg – the sophomore is really playing well as an undersized defensive tackle.”

The Truckers’ next game will be played at Little Chute on Friday, Sept. 14 at 7 p.m.

“We put our hard hats on and get back to work next week,” Burkhalter said. “We’ll figure it out.”
