WHITE LAKE – The second-ranked Cardinals were without all-state quarterback Ben Bates who was sidelined with an injury.

No problem. Dylan Ackermann was more than ready to fill Bates’ cleats with a helping hand from a smothering defense.

All Ackermann did was complete 12 of 14 passes for 201 yards and four touchdowns as New Catholic romped to another easy victory to improve to 4-0 on the season.

Joe Stephan grabbed five receptions for 71 yards and a pair of scores, while Charlie McCarty caught four passes for 56 yards and a TD.

Thomas Bates paced the Cardinals’ ground attack with 151 yards on just 12 carries with a touchdown.

Newman Catholic outgained White Lake/Elcho 441 yards to minus-67.

The Cardinals will host Saint Mary Catholic in a 7 p.m. kickoff Friday at Stiehm Stadium.
