ALPENA — Alpena’s JV Football squad earned a huge home victory over the Traverse City West Titans by a score of 40-20 last Thursday.

The Wildcats lit up the cool and rainy evening with sparkling efforts on both sides of the ball and special teams. Linebacker Joe Sheridan led the charge with a first-quarter punt block that was returned to the one-yard line by Brady Carlson. Quarterback Jonathon Rensberry found the endzone on the next play, and a two-point conversion put Alpena up 8-0.

On the ensuing kickoff, Conner Sauve forced a Titan fumble that was covered up by Kaleb Donajkowski to put the Wildcats back on offense. Donajkowski found paydirt moments later on a 35-yard run.

Continuing to stifle the Titan offense, Alpena went on to score two more times in the first half. Rensberry added his second rushing touchdown of the night on a nine-yard keep and passed for one more on a 20-yard connection with fullback Hunter Cohoon. An interception from Easton Srebnik and a first-half ending sack from Rensberry highlighted the strong defensive push for the ‘Cats, resulting in a 28-0 lead at the half.

In the second half, a solid offensive line propelled the JV crew to two more long touchdown strikes on the ground. Elyjah Chism evaded defenders for a 70-yard score and Donajkowski capped off the offensive effort with a 78-yard touchdown run.

Donajkowski totaled 204 rushing yards and Chism contributed 111 more.

On the defensive side of the ball, Donajkowski forced a fumble and tied linebacker Ty Dever for the team lead in tackles with 8.5 apiece. Chism and Rensberry each added a fumble recovery of their own.
