GREEN BAY – Two Eastern Wisconsin Conference prep rivals are set to square off for the third time in 2016 in the QB Challenge at halftime of Sunday’s Packers-Seahawks game.
Two Rivers defeated Kiel in the regular season back in September, 35-14, and won the rematch in the state playoffs as well, 24-21, before eventually falling one game short of a trip to Madison for the finals.
Both schools are located south of Green Bay along Lake Michigan, within an hour of Lambeau Field.
For Sunday’s Challenge, Two Rivers will bring QB Dawson Kiphart along with receivers Tyler VanEss and Alec Dewane. Kiphart threw for more than 2,300 yards and 25 TDs this past season. Dewane was his leading receiver yardage-wise (661) while ranking second on the team in receptions (45) and TDs (six). VanEss added seven catches for 112 yards and a score.
Kiel will bring QB Max Feldmann along with receivers Dayne Friday and Austin Goehring. Feldman passed for more than 1,800 yards and 14 TDs, with Friday his leading receiver, posting 55 catches for 836 yards and eight scores. Goehring was right behind with 37 catches for 606 yards and six TDs.
