The unbeaten Phantoms made two big plays into the teeth of heavy winds early in the game and went on to blow away Little Chute 40-6 in a WIAA Division 3 first-round matchup Tuesday.
“Against the wind, I didn’t think I could do it,” West De Pere’s Jay Tollefson said.
The junior quarterback managed to cut through the southerly gusts of nearly 40 mph with a short pass over the middle to tight end Joe Hebert, who started the scoring with a 59-yard touchdown.
“It wasn’t a great pass. I’m not going to lie,” Tollefson said. “It was a wobbler, but it got it done, and he ran it in for a touchdown.” (Source: Green Bay Press Gazette)
Up next for the unbeaten Phantoms a trip to Bay Conference rival Seymour to take on the Thunder.
