The Three Lakes-Phelps football team moved to 3-0 on the season this past Saturday, bending but not breaking as they shut out Menomonie Indian-Green Bay N.E.W. Lutheran 50-0 on the road Saturday afternoon.

Offensively, the Bluejays were as balanced as they’ve been in awhile, rushing for 185 total yards while passing for 167.

Ashton Maney once again had a banner game offensively, rushing for 139 yards on 16 carries (8.7 yards per carry) to go with four scores.

Quarterback L.J. Terlizzi threw the ball extremely well, completing 6-of-10 through the air for 142 yards and one touchdown. That scoring strike came on a connection with Brandon Baumann, who with three catches led the way for the Bluejays with 60 yards and  a score.

Maney added two catches with 46 yards while Josh Cogar added a catch for 36 yards, and McCain Graff also had a catch for 25 yards.

Graff was active on the defensive side of the ball also, totaling 12 tackles on the day to lead the way for the Bluejays. Following him was Terlizzi with 11, Maney with eight, Baumann with six and Doug Koshuta and Darren Wittchow with five each.

Opposing quarterback Reid Nelson was 11-of-18 on the day for 144 yards and a pick which fell into the hands of Three?Lakes’ Maney.

Defensively the Bluejays turned the Oneida Nation co-op into a one-dimensional team, allowing just 37 yards on the ground off 23 carries (1.6 yards per carry average).

With a 3-0 nonleague record to start the year, Three Lakes-Phelps will come into Friday’s game at home against Florence with some momentum as the game will be the first conference matchup of the season for both teams.

Florence (2-1, 0-0) comes in after winning their first game of the season over Algoma 14-6. They fell on the road to Lena-St. Thomas Aquinas 27-8 before winning last Friday 46-6 at home over Sevastopol.

Game time at the Three Lakes stadium for this Friday’s game is set for 7 p.m.
