How the Wisconsin Dells football team turned a corner to punish teams defensively this season | Soccer


Eleven players have 30 or more tackles this season for the Chiefs, punctuated by senior defensive back Will Michalsky with 90 to complete with eight TFLs, four sacks, two interceptions and five assists defended. Juniors Hunter Isaacson (81 tackles, 10 TFL, 3 sacks) and Patrick Metz (78, 5 TFL, 2 sacks) and senior Matt Getgen (76, 11 TFL 3 sacks, 2 fumbles) also total over 75 tackles each.

“We are dominant when we evolve together and play together,” said junior Dylan Warren. “Everyone supports each other and it really helps to be dominant in defense. “

This was especially seen against the Green Devils. With Wisconsin Dells holding a 21-12 lead late in the fourth quarter, Warren, who has a record 14 tackles for loss, caused a bad pass deep into the Chiefs’ territory. Getgen settled under the poorly pitched ball and traveled 18 yards without touching for the interception return touchdown that sealed the game.

“Yeah, he (Warren) did that, forced the quarterback to pitch it to another guy,” Stroede added. “Matt (Getgen) gets the credit, but we all do it for each other. It always counts as a win, that’s what matters.
