Peshtigo & Crivitz Notch Conference Wins

Balanced Bulldogs

Conquer Cavaliers


With a total of 13 players on the Peshtigo roster, it's easy to see where the word mismatch might come in handy as they traveled to St. Thomas Aquinas Academy Monday evening.  The Cavaliers have a total of 28 students enrolled in their high school, making them the smallest school in Wisconsin that will be a part of the WIAA playoffs in March.  Six of those 28 students are on the Cavalier's basketball roster.

After Peshtigo's Matt Larsen opened with the game's first basket, Cavaliers Jack Farley and Christian Hornick gave STAA the early 4-2 lead.  The Bulldogs then went on a 9-0 scoring run that featured three break away layups from Ryley Demmith and another from Joey Bradley.  A Farley three-pointer brought the lead back down to 11-7 at the 12-minute mark. 

"Our defense was our best offense tonight. We tried a couple different looks and tried to have our big guys on top and make some plays," said Peshtigo Coach Nate Motkowski.

Tyler Stuart drained a jumper from the corner to bring the Cavaliers within five points, but it was Nathan Goneau's basket that seemed to spark the Bulldogs.  The lengthy Peshtigo defense held the STAA to just four baskets in the final nine minutes of the first half.  Strong play on the defensive end led to transition points for Peshtigo as they seemed to get red-hot from the field.  Bradley was the key beneficiary of the stellar defense as he recorded 12 first-half points, all of which came from layups.  Larsen, Justin Thill, and Cole Tackmier each connected on three-pointers and Trent Carriveau nailed a long-range jumper as the halftime buzzer sounded, helping Peshtigo to a 53-22 lead at the break.

Farley piled in 11 straight points for the Cavaliers spanning from the end of the first half to the beginning of the second half.  His efforts weren't enough, however, as the Bulldogs kept their momentum coming out of halftime.  Larsen drilled a short jumper and a hook shot to ignite Peshtigo once again.  Bradley and Max Neumann then connected on back-to-back layups which opened a 61-22 lead for the Bulldogs. 

"Backing off on offense is one thing but we still wanted to go hard on defense the whole game," said Motkowski of their relentless defense.

Hornick scored a transition layup and Stuart sank a three as the Cavaliers exchanged baskets with the Bulldogs, but Peshtigo had already amassed an insurmountable lead.  Peshtigo went on to take the victory 82-39.

Motkowski touched on the Bulldogs' ability to control the rebounding battle, "It's something we talked about after the Marinette game, we want to be a little more physical.  No matter who you're playing you still have to turn around, find a body, box out, and get a rebound."

Bradley paced Peshtigo with 16 points, Tackmier added 11, all in the first half, and Demmith and Larsen each pitched in with 10.  Out of the 13 Bulldogs on the roster, 12 found their way into the score sheets.

Farley led the way for the Cavaliers with 18 points while Stuart chipped in with 11 and Eric Powers and Jordan Bourdelais each had four.

Blue Devils Shoot

Down Cougars

The Oconto Blue Devils quickly broke the game open Thursday night against the host Coleman Cougars, building on a 40-26 halftime lead to win big 74-33.

Oconto's Carson Moe led all scorers with 17 points off four in close jumpers, two triples and three free throws. Connor Ebben bagged 13 for the Blue Devils while Zach Sherman and Jake Krueger both pitched in 11 points each.

Coleman was led by Austin Marquardt with 11 points followed by Austin Tachick with 11. Cole Woulf had seven on the night.



Laona/Wabeno Grounds

Suring in Close Duel


After holding a slight 32-31 edge at the intermission the host Suring Eagles fell to second half Rebel surge that propelled the invading forces to a 59-55 win.

Over the first half the Rebels Michael Gelpin found his rhythm, sinking four triples.

Suring's John Christensen kept the Eagles in it with eight second half points and went on to lead the Suring scorers with 14 points on the night. Chris Geniesse and Ryan Mahoney both bagged 10 points for the Eagles.

With only two misses at the line the Rebel's Cooper Chrisman was able to take top scoring honors with 21 points. He made 16 of his 18 free throws while hitting on one triple and one deuce.

He was followed by Gelpin with 19 points and Kyle Harris with 15 points.



Algoma Buries Crivitz

Under 24 Points


The Algoma Wolves more than doubled the Wolverines total over the first half of play Thursday night, sprinting to a 33-15 lead over the first half.

The home court Wolverines had their hands full trying to stop a quick hitting Wolves offense that was lead in the first half by Aidan Wallace with 11 points. Matt Washlers and Mark Grouogel both took a few long shots getting two treys a piece to start the game.

Jakob Voss and Kershaw Stumbris led the Wolverines with 11 points each while Dawson Andrist chipped in five points.

Wallace took top scoring honors for Algoma with 19 points. Grouogel bagged 15 while Casey Stangel got nine on the night.



Marinette Fights For

Win Over Little Chute


The Marinette Marines played it close to the chest in their Saturday showdown against the host Little Chute Mustangs, coming home with the 64-61 win.

After falling behind to the Marines over the first half, mainly due to Matt Wagner's three point bucket rally which put the Marines up 16-2, the Mustangs returned fire, ending the half one point behind the Marines 29-28.

The battle continued into the second half where the Mustangs met the Marines on all fronts which caused six lead changes .

Jordan Wendt brought the game to its final tie of the night with a couple free throws before Jake Poetzl helped to put the Marines further ahead with a layup off a steal, for the 54-51.

But a Noah Mueller three point bucket brought the Mustangs within two 60-58.

Poetzl scored Marinette's final points off a couple free throws and the defense held to give Marinette the win.

Marinette's Wagner took top scoring honors for the Marines with 23 points while Poetzl bagged 16.

The Mustangs were led by Mueller with 16 points.



Goodman/Pembine

Falls to Rebels


On Tuesday the Patriots fell to the Laona/Wabeno Rebels by way of an 86-27 differential. Suther led the charge for the Patriots with 12 points and four rebounds while Braaten posted 11 points.

"Wabeno came out fast and then dictated the tempo of the game with their defense," said Goodman/Pembine Head Coach John Swick. "We just never were able to get going and finished with only three players scoring for us all night. We have to break down this film to learn from our mistakes and just get back to work tomorrow with another big game at Phelps on Friday.



Lena Slams

Coleman


The Lena Wildcats behind a 28 point performance by Connor Heise powered past the Coleman Cougars Monday night 79-55.

Heise's exploits began in the first half where he quickly worked his way to 13 points, hitting on two triples and three in close buckets.

Coleman's Cole Woulf and Matt Kostreva did all they could to keep their Cougars in the mix as both hit for 11 first half points.

The Wildcats outscored the Cougars 48-30 in the second half, thanks to another 15 Heise points. Heise ended the night with four three pointers.

Hunter Borchert also put on a show for the Wildcat fans as he found his way to 19 points off three triples, three doubles and four of his six free throws. Dalton Anderson chipped in 13 points to the effort.

Coleman's Woulf led the guys in green with 17 points while Kostreva followed with 11 points. Austin Marquardt rounded off the top Coleman scorers with nine points.



Crivitz Holds

Down Badgers


The Crivitz Wolverines held on to the lead from the early goings of Tuesday night battle with the visiting Niagara Badgers and never relinquished it, going on to win 59-48.

Though Niagara was quicker under the lard than the Wolverines in the first half, they were unable to capitalize on scoring opportunities leaving the Wolverines with a bit of cushion going into the intermission 34-19.

Jakob Voss took the initiative for the Wolverines over the first half, hitting for 12 points. Travis Giese stepped up for the Wolverines with 10 first half points.

Niagara's Jacob Bousley opened the Badger scoring with a free throw but didn't find his rythmn until the second where he kicked it into gear for 15 points.

With the Wolverines up 8-2 Niagara's Ethan Blagec struck from behind the line to make it 8-5.

Giese brought the Wolverines to a 20-11 lead after a rebound and score and Blagec answered a short while later with a another three ball to make if 20-16.

Voss finished the half's scoring with a quick layup to raise the Wolverine total to 34.

Austin Hagerty chipped in 10 points second half points.

Wolverine Kershaw Stumbris found his rhythm in the second half as well, going wild for the Wolverines with 11 points.

Bousley led all scorers with 19 points followed by teammate Hagerty with 10 points.

Giese was top man for the Wolverines with 16 point shwile Voss registered 15 on the night. Stumbris finished with 11 points.



Badgers Break Away

from Patriots


M&O and Northern Lakes Conference opponents matched up Friday night as the Niagara Badgers took on the Goodman-Pembine Patriots.  Niagara made key shots down the stretch to extend the lead and eventually take the victory, 58-44.

"I am really proud of how these guys battled to the end. We were down 4 with just over two minutes to go and to their credit, Niagara hit their shots and free throws down the stretch.  I think we stuck to our game plan pretty well and just missed too many open shots. We played a quality opponent very close for our first game out of the box and that is something we can build on," Patriots Coach John Swick said.

Noah Suther led Goodman-Pembine with 17 points, followed by Hagan Braaten with 12 and Evan Metras nine.
