Dukes Eclipse The Suns, 34-6

Dukes vs West Bend East

The Whitefish Bay Blue Dukes jumped out to a 34-0 lead at the half against West Bend East and never looked back, winning 34-6 in the season opener.

The Blue Dukes defense was relentless all night, dominating the line of scrimmage and flying to the ball. The Suns only gained 179 yards , throwing 3 interceptions and coughing the ball up twice in the process

Senior Running Back Grover Bortolotti kicked off the fun by taking a 58-yard screen from QB Jack Stecker to the house. On the first play of the second quarter, Junior Running Back Nigel Cheeks rushed one in from 36-yards, the first of his four scores. Cheeks caught a 26-yard pass from Stecker to make it 18-0, and followed that up by taking a kickoff for a touchdown after the Blue Dukes D forced a safety.

He wasn’t done quite yet.

Just before the end of the first half, Cheeks took another carry 14-yards to the endzone to make it 34-0 at the half. He finished with 239 All-Purpose yards to go along with his 4 scores. Stecker finished 2/3 with 85 yards and two touchdowns.

Byron Burrows, Jack Nau, and Morgan Brower all had interceptions for the vaunted Blue Dukes Defense.
