Mother Nature Slows M&O Play; Peshtigo/Wausaukee Hold Lead

Wolverines Bring the Pressure on Wildcats



With only a handful of seniors on both squads collectively, Crivitz and Lena took part in a contest that featured plenty for the future Tuesday evening.  The Wolverines displayed a full court press that gave the Wildcats a bit of a fit.  Crivitz's physical nature and pressure defense helped them to a 57-35 win over Lena.

"When you see people flying at you all the time it can wear you down.  We can be pretty explosive at times," Crivitz Head Coach Brett Meyers said of his squad.

Explosive they were, a 7-0 run helped the Wolverines build up an early lead.  Talor Long connected on a layup, Taylor Bemis dialed up a three, and Sianna Guns added a layup making the lead 11-3. Lena responded with a 7-2 scoring run of their own.  Brianna Sylvester scored on a fast break and Ally Demmith began her big night with a short jumper.  Demmith then made the score 13-10 with her layup. 

This game of streaks was largely impacted by one big Crivitz scoring run.  With 9:50 on the clock in the first half, the Wolverines went on a 14-0 run over the next four and a half minutes of game time.  In that stretch, it was the long-range shooting of Bemis on display.  Bemis sank a triple before drilling two more shots from just inside the arc for her own 7-0 run.  After the drought, Lena found themselves in a 27-10 hole.  By halftime, Crivitz led 30-14.

"There was glimpses of it last year.  Now, after putting in countless hours this summer, it's paying off. I feel good for her and for all of them.  They're having fun and enjoying this game now," said Coach Meyers of Bemis.

Chloe Gruszynski began the second half with a strong rebound and put back before sinking a three pointer, adding to the lead, 35-14.  Demmith responded with two baskets of her own and Kaylee Huberty added a bucket to bring the score back to 35-20.  Again, Crivitz then went on a big run that seemed to ice the game.  Starting at the 13:38 mark, the Wolverines went on an 18-4 run that lasted nearly six minutes, pushing the lead to 53-24.  On the final basket of the run, Aliya Leslie was the beneficiary of a crafty touch-pass by Gruszynski. 

Lena would score 12 of the last 16 points in the game, but it was not quite enough as Crivitz took the victory 57-35.  Gruszynski led the way for the Wolverines with 17 points, Bemis added 14 and Long pitched in with seven.  For Lena, it was Demmith with 18 points and Sylvester with five.

"It's coming. We're building. They're playing hard, spent some time in the summer, and are now reaping the benefits of putting in the work," Coach Meyers said.



Crivitz (57) " Leslie 3, Johnsen 2, Bemis 14, Guns 6, Kosmecki 4, Johnsen 2, Gruszynski 17, Long 7; FTs 5-15

Badgers Baffle Tigers



After battling to a two-point showdown at halftime, 22-20, the Niagara Badgers held on to the lead and won 59-48 over the Gillett Tigers Tuesday.  Niagara's Sarah Nawn led all scorers with 26 including shooting 10 of 16 from the free throw line and draining the only two triples the Badgers scored on the night.

Jasmine Racine pitched in with 14 points for the Badgers, Maddie West added nine, and Alex Gill chipped in with five.

Taylor Yonker paced the Tigers with 18 points, Erin Balthazor added 11 points, Faith Sorlie scored nine and Kaitlyn Schaal had six.

Rangers Wrangle

Bobcats

In a matchup of the M&O's Wausaukee Rangers and the Northern Lakes' Florence Bobcats, the home squad was no match for the visiting Rangers.  Wausaukee climbed to a 27-14 lead at halftime before cruising to a 63-34 victory Tuesday evening. 

The Rangers were powered by Alexis Ranallo with 13 points, Kaelyn Schlies scored 10, Courtney Messar added eight, and Bella Manske chipped in with seven.

Florence's Shayla Mclain led the team with 10 and Jenna Springer pitched in eight.



Wausaukee (63) " Backhaus 6, M. Schlies 4, Messar 8, Smith 1, K. Schlies 10, Manske 7, Alexis Ranallo 13, Renikow 2, Distad 2, Zlomaniec 6, Schroeder 4; FTs 11-20

Meissner Shines in

Cougars Win Over

Eagles



The Coleman Cougars took the trip to the U.P. to take on the Stephenson Eagles Tuesday evening.  With much help from senior guard Marianna Meissner, Coleman took down Stephenson 58-46. 

Meissner piled up 28 points in the contest to lead all scorers.  Ashlee Mayer's key second half contribution helped her to 18 points, 16 came in the second half. 

Karlee Kuntze paced the Eagle offense with 16 points, including nine in the first half, and Cross added 11.



Coleman (58) " Nowak 2, Mayer 18, Fraser 1, Dufek 2, Yoap 2, Klimek 2, Meissner 28, Crandall 2, Marquardt 1; FT: 8-14
