Marines Outlast Bulldogs in Overtime Thriller

The Marinette Marines and the Peshtigo Bulldogs faced off Monday night for a thriller of a game that saw the Marines victorious after overtime 85-82.

Loud only begins to describe the decibel level in Marinette's Evermore gym. The players put on a a show and the fans definitely let them know.

"The atmosphere here was great," said Marinette Head Coach Nick Semenas. "It's what high school basketball is all about.  We had a number of guys step up and play very key roles in winning. I have a ton of respect for Coach Motkowski and the program they have over at Peshtigo.  Year in and year out, they have a great athletes who play very well together, go 100% all the time, and that's why they win 20 games a year."

Both team's sharpshooters had their sights fixed and ready over the first half as threes were rained in by Peshtigo's Joey Bradley, Matt Larsen, Justin Thill and Cole Tackmier. Marinette's side saw Matt Wagner, Jordan Wendt and Jake Poetzl fire off seven long rangers of their own, with Poetzl bagging four to build a 46-44 lead at the half.

"Our offense is designed to take what the defense gives us," said Semenas. "If that is inside shots, we'll take inside shots, if it's outside shots, we'll take outside shots. One advantage for us is we have a greater amount of kids who can shoot from the outside than any other year before this since I've been here."

Poetzl went to work early in the second half, sinking two straight three pointers in a row helping to take the lead for Marinette 13-5.

"Jake is a great player who is constantly working on his game year round," said Semenas.  "He's constantly in the gym or in the weight room putting in work.  There are not many kids I've ever seen put in the amount of time developing their game that he has." 

But a feisty Bulldog crew responded with a handful of threes from Bradley and Larsen who both sunk three a piece.

"Going into this season I see our team being more of a threat from deep than the last couple of years.  We are a team that looks to score inside first, but we are also comfortable shooting smart shots from the outside," said Peshtigo Head Coach Nate Motkowski. "Last night we found ourselves shooting more 3's because we were able to penetrate the lane and kick the ball out to our shooters."

The lead was never far from either teams grasp over the second half. Thanks to a couple free throws by Max Neumann late in the second the Bulldogs seized the lead 68-63.

With less than a minute left on the game clock Peshtigo went up 77-75 thanks to a Bradley free throw. Poetzl sent the game into overtime off a bucket with seconds remaining.

"We have a very confident team with a pretty good mix of older guys who give their heart every possession," said Semenas. "We have a very confident sophomore group who are never afraid to make big plays offensively."

Matt Larsen's fourth three pointer of the night helped to push the Bulldog's total to 80 during overtime with the Marines trailing by one.

Marinette's Jordan Wendt retook the lead for Marinette who held on for the 85-82 win.

Poetzl led all scorers with 29 points. His total was achieved by way of five three point buckets, six two pointers and two free throws. Wagner bagged an additional 25 points off three long range jumpers and five two point buckets. He also successfully made six of his eight free throws. Wendt chipped in 15 by way of one three, four two point buckets and a perfect four of four showing at the free throw line.

Peshtigo's Bradley gave the Bulldog's 22 points off a triple helping of three pointers, two in close jumpers and 10 of his 12 free throws. Larsen was second on the Peshtigo top scorer list with 15 points. He also enjoyed considerable success behind the arc, sinking four jumpers along with one two point bucket and a free throw. Justin Thill had 12 along with Cole Tackmier who chipped in 12. Nine of Tackmier's points were rung in from behind the arc.

"We definitely learned some things about our team last night," said Motkowski. "There is always room for improvement. I know this group of guys will put in the time and effort to make another late season run.  We just need to get a little healthier and get more focused on the big picture."



Lena Takes Down

Stockbridge


Monday evening the Wildcats welcomed Stockbridge to Lena as the two took part in a non-conference basketball battle.  After doubling up Stockbridge in the first half, 28-14, Lena held on by the same margin to take the victory, 62-48.

Dylan Marquardt led the way for Lena with 17 points including four three-pointers, three coming in the first half.  Hunter Borchert pitched in with 13 points, eight of which were in the first half, while Connor Heise added 12. Jacob Staidl also recorded double digits with 10 points for the Wildcats.

Stockbridge was led by Jake Thurbor with 17 points and Chris Langteau with 11. Noah Hermann also added nine points to the team's total.



Crivitz/Oconto battle it

Out in Season Opener


No one likes to start a season in the loss column but that was the outcome for the hosting Crivitz Wolverines last Saturday when they took on the Oconto Blue Devils, falling after a close battle 68-66.

Oconto outpaced the Wolverines by four points over the first half thanks to some stellar play by Conner Ebben and Carson Moe who combined for 20 first half points.

Crivitz's Kershaw Stumbris kept the Wolverines in it, sinking three first half behind the arc jumpers while Travis Giese took control of the close stuff with 10 points.

The second half was marked by multiple trips to the free throw line by both teams as Crivitz made 15 of their 21 attempts while the Blue Devils sunk 14 of their 25. Oconto's Moe spent the most time at the line making 12 of his 14.

Moe lead all scorers on the night with 20 points while teammate Woller pitched in 18 and Ebben another 16.

Jakob Voss and Stumbris were the Wolverine leaders with 18 points apiece. Giese bagged 16 points.



Suring Survives

Bonduel


The Suring Eagles got off to a winning note last Monday when they took down the Bonduel Bears 47-45.

John Christensen led the Eagles during the first half with nine points, five of which came off shots from the charity line. Teammate Ryan Mahoney, who led the Suring scorers with 16 total points found his way to three long range jumpers, two of which were bagged during the second half.

Bonduel's Bryce Weier led the Bears with 16 points. He drilled his way to 15 points off three point shots.



Cavaliers Take Win

Shorthanded


The Saint Thomas Aquinas Cavaliers were able to post a win over visiting Stockbridge 52-51, despite having only four players on the court.

With only six men on the roster the Cavaliers found themselves down a few players after an injury sidelined Jack Farley and too many fouls sent Christian Hornick to the bench during the second half.

Farley's contributions included 15 first half points that helped to keep the game knotted up 26-26 at the half.

With time expiring and a small lead in the hands of the Cavaliers, Stockbridge began to wear down the short handed crew, eventually overtaking them 51-49 with seconds remaining in the game.

But Tyler Stuart never gave up and found a three point bucket to bring the Cavalier back to the lead 52-51.

Farley was the night's top scorer with 20 points. Stuart posted 11 points while Hornick pitched in 10.



Panthers Pounce

On Cougars


After scoring the games first point on free throw the Cougars were quell a hard hitting Oconto Falls scoring push that put the Panthers up by 15 pouts. The Panthers would even eventually take the win 56-40.

At the half O. Falls led 34-12. Even though Coleman did return fire un the second half, outscoring the Panthers 28-20, it would not be enough to make up for the early game rout.

Mason Sefcik led all scorers for the Panther with 17 points, 15 of which came from behind the arc. Aaron Kuth posted 13 while Joe Schoen bagged an additional 12.

Coleman was led by Austin Marquardt with 15 points. He sunk four threes on his way to the team leading total. Cole Woulf recorded 11 points.



Badgers Use Double

Overtime to Beat Bobcats


Tuesday night, the Niagara Badgers were battle tested against the non-conference foe Florence Bobcats. Florence was able to secure a 41-32 lead at halftime before Niagara fought their way back in the second half to a 69-69 tie at the end of regulation.

"We did not play great defense in the first half. We clawed and fought our way back in the second half. We should have won the game in regulation but Florence was able to hit two big three's coming down the stretch," Niagara Coach Jim Hoogland said.

Both teams scored six points in the first overtime which forced a second overtime with the score knotted at 75-75. From there, the Badgers were able to outlast the Bobcats, winning the matchup 80-78.

"Ethan [Blagec] hit a three with five seconds left in the first overtime to send us to the second overtime. I am so proud of my boys. Casey [Antonissen] came off the bench for a great game," said Hoogland.

Ethan Blagec led the way for Niagara with 22 points, Jacob Bousley added 19 points and Alex Hagerty and Casey Antonissen each pitched in with 11.

Florence's N. Krueger paced the Bobcats 25 points and W. McLain had 20 points.
