Football: Offense, defense both deliver as 42-13 win over Brown Deer moves Whitnall within one win of playoff berth

Oct. 16, 2008

The points were nice, every last one of them, in Whitnall’s 42-13 Woodland Conference victory at Brown Deer on Oct. 10 that moved the Falcons (4-2 in the Woodland, 4-3 overall) within a victory of qualifying for the WIAA playoffs.

What Whitnall coach Rob Leboeuf liked most was the way his team played defensively.

“Our defense, we’re getting better every single week,” Leboeuf said about the unit that held Brown Deer to a season-low point total.

Leboeuf praised the efforts of five seniors: linemen Cameron Clark, Dan Mayer, Greg Szymanski and linebackers Nick Dellis and Matt Schenke. But the defense as a whole made the game quite difficult for Brown Deer quarterback Max Grafwallner.

“They did a heck of a job,” Leboeuf said. “We got some pressure on the quarterback.” Three of those bad throws were intercepted by Brock McGinn, Szymanski and Schenke. Grafwallner was 13-for-35 for 111 yards.

Whitnall also got a big play out of its special teams, as Dellis blocked a punt and returned it 20 yards for a touchdown.

Bennett Kaye completed 11 of 23 passes for 153 yards. He threw touchdown passes of 13 and 60 yards to Nick Kollauf. Nick Vlahos ran for 162 yards on 20 carries and scored on runs 36 and 7 yards. Sean Graham carried 13 times for 102 yards and scored on a 36-yard run.

The Falcons gained 445 yards.

The Falcons will play St. Thomas More at St. Francis at 1 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 18, and close out the regular season by playing hosts to Greendale at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 22.
