Chilton fumbled the opening kickoff, but that’s all that went wrong as the Tigers steamrolled Manitowoc Roncalli, 45-8, in Eastern Wisconsin Conference football action Friday night at a wet Morrissey Field in Chilton.

The Jets had the ball at Chilton’s 28, but went nowhere punting the ball to the Tigers. Chilton then went on 14-play, 93-yard drive capped off by a Jackson Ludwig two-yard dive. The two-point conversion made it 8-0 and CHS was well on its way.

After recovering a Roncalli fumble, Tiger quarterback Alex Breckheimer went right to the air finding Zach Halbach for a 25-yard scoring strike.

Breckheimer was in the spotlight again picking off a Roncalli pass and returning it for a 30-yard touchdown and a 24-0 lead, still in the first quarter.

Jared Gehl scored on a second quarter 18-yard romp and a 48-yard Breckheimer to Gehl scoring reception made it 38-0 at halftime.

Tiger head coach Mike Arendt and line coach Denny Galipo credited a revamped offensive line that included Lukas Geiser, Ryan Lisowe, Logan See, Grant Mueller and Jordan Lemke for protecting Breckheimer and creating the holes for the rushing touchdowns.

Hunter Rolbiecki added a second half touchdown as the Tigers and improved to 2-2 in the EWC. They need to win two of their last three games to reach the playoffs.
