ASHLAND - Before lifting weights or running sprints, the Ashland Oredockers pick up their helmet stickers, rewards for meeting goals in the team's previous game.

This year, Ashland has been getting more helmet stickers and accomplishing more goals than anyone outside the locker room expected.

"I thought it was something we could do because we put a lot of work in in the offseason," said senior right tackle Hunter Powless.

The Oredockers are 3-0 in conference play after defeating the Merrill Bluejays last weekend, which puts them on the brink of their first playoff berth in nearly a decade.

GREEN BAY (AP) - Aaron Rodgers threw three touchdown passes in the second half after returning from a knee injury, and the Green Bay Packers overcame a 20-point deficit for a thrilling 24-23 win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday night.

Rodgers, who was carted off in the first half, connected with receiver Randall Cobb for a catch-and-run through the secondary for a 75-yard touchdown and the go-ahead score with 2:13 left in the game.

Nick Perry sacked the Bears' Mitchell Trubisky on fourth-and-10 with 58 seconds to complete the comeback.

A Chicago defense featuring newly acquired star linebacker Khalil Mack dominated until the third quarter. Mack had a 27-yard interception return for a touchdown against backup quarterback DeShone Kizer in the second quarter.

A gimpy Rodgers returned in the second half and finally figured out the Bears. He also found Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison for touchdown passes.

The warmer and rainy weather has really affected the turn out each week.

Gulke hopes interest will grow before winter hits.
