Whitefish Bay was a no-fly zone Friday night with Hartford in town. Defensive mastermind Coach Aaron Schoen and his tenacious Blue Dukes Defense delivered a goose egg to the Orioles, holding them to 170 yards of total offense en route to a 7-0 victory.

The Dukes controlled the ball for nearly 33 minutes on offense and grinded out 221 yards rushing on 54 carries. Senior Grover Bortolotti had another monster week, carrying the rock 28 times for 170 yards and a touchdown. Signal caller Jack Stecker led the offense to three Fourth Down conversions while also completing 4 of 7 passes for 35 yards.

The story of the night, however, was the Dukes D. Hartford was only able to complete 12 passes on 28 attempts for 144 yards and rush for 28 yards on 12 carries. Bortolotti added another interception to his season total and teamed up with Linebacker Nick Jordnt for a goal line stand that secured the W for the Dukes. With 2:37 left in the game and the Orioles on the Dukes 3-yard line, Bortolotti and Jordnt combined to force a fumble that was recovered by Outside Linebacker Heath Oberg.

With the victory, the Blue Dukes move to 3-0 on the season.
