Area Girls Basketball

Battle of Unbeatens Set For Thursday

Bulldogs Outlast Badgers

in Two OT Thriller


An ordinary Tuesday night of basketball turned out to be a showdown as the Peshtigo Bulldogs hosted the Niagara Badgers.  After battling to a 43-43 tie at the end of regulation, it would take not one, but two overtimes to decide the winner.  With a conference win streak of 42 games, the Bulldogs found themselves in a fight to extend the streak. 

A Claire Neumann layup seemed to jump start the Peshtigo offense as Emma Frederickson followed up with two short jumpers and a free throw to give them an 11-6 lead.  Ki' Eircidy Hannah responded with a layup for the Badgers but Jenna Thill's three-pointer extended the Bulldog lead.  Niagara scored 10 of the next 12 points in the game to take an 18-16 lead.  Two late layups by Neumann recaptured the lead into halftime for Peshtigo, 20-18.

When asked about facing a press and a zone defense, Peshtigo Coach Pete Villas said, "I think they were trying to see if we could handle the pressure and try to slow us down.  We couldn't get to the basket much with the height they had inside and we had a lot of shots blocked.  They were forcing us to shoot outside and we struggled to hit shots.  We've been shooting the ball well lately until tonight.  I stressed to the girls that we needed to be more active on the offensive end."

Jasmine Racine sank two free throws and a layup and Madeline West added a layup as Niagara grabbed the lead out of halftime.  Hannah Swanson kept the Bulldogs alive by scoring 11 of Peshtigo's next 15 points, with her final basket of the run tying the game at 35-35.  With just under two minutes to play, it was the clutch play of Sarah Nawn that kept the Badgers in the game.  Nawn sank a triple to give Niagara a 38-36 lead.  Neumann answered with a jumper to tie the game again, but two Nawn free throws took the lead right back.  Shae Tonn sank a three with 1:08 on the clock for Peshtigo to gain the 41-40 advantage.  West answered with a basket for the Badgers, but Frederickson came right back with a layup with 25.2 seconds on the clock.  With the game at 43-42, Nawn went to the free throw line with 9.1 on the clock and sank the first free throw to tie the game at 43-43.  With no time on the clock, the Badgers were able to draw a foul and earn two free throw attempts, but missed both as the game went to overtime.

In overtime, Nawn struck again from behind the arc to tie the game at 46-46.  Neumann's layup with 36.1 on the clock gave Peshtigo a two-point lead, 48-46.  Again, taking advantage of their double bonus situation, Cassandra Gill earned two shots at the free throw line for Niagara and sank both to tie the game with 20 seconds.  The game was sent to double overtime.

Layups from Ashley Dudka and Lexy Debriyan gave Peshtigo a 52-48 lead, but, who else, Nawn drained a three-pointer to bring the game back within one.  Debriyan again connected on a layup before West connected on two free throws for Niagara.  Another Debriyan layup with a minute left on the clock increased the lead back to three again for Peshtigo.  Racine connected on one of two free throws making it a two-point game, but ice in the veins of Peshtigo's Tonn allowed her to sink both of her free throw attempts.  Peshtigo hung on to win in exhilarating fashion, 58-54.

"We struggled shooting and were well below our season average from the free throw line.  Madi [Martin] fouled out late in the second half and Emma [Frederickson] fouled out early in the first overtime.  Playing that long without two of our starters was tough, but our bench stepped up and made plays when we had to," said Coach Villas about the quality play off the bench.

Claire Neumann led the Peshtigo squad with 15 points, Hannah Swanson added 12, Emma Frederickson scored 11, and Shae Tonn pitched in with seven.

For Niagara, Sarah Nawn piled in a game-high 20 points including five threes.  Madeline West chipped in with 11 points and Jasmine Racine scored 10.

"We've been tested for three straight games now and it's starting to really bring the team together and helping them believe in each other.  Winning these tough games is starting to build our confidence.  I like the way we are staying focused.  We have some work to do and will learn and get better from this," said Coach Villas about his team's ability to find a way to win.

Crivitz Pulls Away

With Strong Second Half


The Crivitz Wolverine girls basketball team had their hands full containing the visiting Coleman Cougars over the first half of Tuesday night's conference showdown with the score 27-25 at the half.

The second half was a complete different story as the girls in blue and gold kicked it into gear to people themselves to a 62-37 verdict.

"Our team is blessed with a little speed and agility," said Crivitz Head Coach Brett Meyers. "I believe all of us are like that. This Coleman team played tough, they always have great athletes."

Kailey Klimek got the ball rolling with an early lay up along with Marianna Meissner who tagged on Coleman's second score for the 4-0 lead.

Crivitz's Talor Long returned fire with a put back but Coleman answered with two consecutive Ashlee Mayer scores.

Sianna Guns helped to close the gap with a three point play.

After four more Mayer points the Cougars had taken their largest lead of the night 14-5.

"Expected that we would have our hands full," said Meyers. "We switched a few things up in the second half and they had problems adjusting, which is pretty much the story of the game."

The lead quickly began to evaporate thanks to a couple quick screws from the Wolverines' Emalee Johnson who drilled a three to open her night's scoring followed by a two point play comments later.

CeCe Johnsen tied the game at 19-19 with less than four minutes left in the half.

After a three by Coleman's Clara Yoap, Emalee Johnsen hit on a two point jumper to finish the half 27-25 in favor of the Cougars.

The second half wasn't even close as the Wolverines outscored their opponent 35-12 to take the win.

Chloe Gruszynski got the second half started for the Wolverines, drawing a foul on her way to the hoop and making both subsequent shots.

With 15 minutes left in the game Mayer scored off a put back and was almost immediately answered on the Crivitz possession by a Taylor Bemis three point bucket for the 34-31 Wolverine lead.

After reaching 33 points the Coleman offensive attack stalled out while Crivitz's shooters started to heat up. Bemis connected on a long two pointer for the 39-33 lead and Johnsen scored on a put back to further the lead.

Gruszynski found her way in-between a Coleman pass which she picked off and took to the house for a 49-35 lead.

"These girls really have put their time in to develop their skills," said Meyers. " They have been in the gym constantly working and it shows. They are finally starting to really figure things and its nice to seem them rewarded."

Gruszynski lead all scorers Tuesday night with 17 points while teammate Bemis got 16. Emalee Johnsen added 13 to the total.

"Our defense struggled over the second half," said Coleman Head Coach Sammy Schaal. "And it seemed like we just couldn't make a shot, we just couldn't figure out a way to fight through it. These Crivitz girls are young and quick will definitely be trouble in the future."

Mayer lead the Cougars with 16 points while Meissner chipped in 10.

Lena Secures

Win Over STAA


The Lena Wildcat girls basketball team took a 42-20 win over the visiting Saint Thomas Aquinas Academy Cavaliers.

At the half the Cavaliers were still in it 17-12 but that quickly changed over the second half as the Wildcats blasted the Cavaliers 25-8.

Lena was led by Kaylee Huberty with 12 points and Ally Demmith with seven.

STAA's Michelle Kallestad topped her team's charts with nine points while Millie Benson got eight.

Marinette Falls

to Denmark


The Marinette Marines were unable to overcome the challenge of the Denmark Vikings last Tuesday evening falling, to the home team 58-40.

Top scoring honors were shared by Marinette's Brooke Peterson and Denmark's Ashley Leiterman as each posted 12 points.

Peterson was followed by McKenzie Bebo with 11 points and Meghan Suhs with 6.

Wausaukee Stays

Unbeaten Against Gillett


The Rangers of Wausaukee took to the road Tuesday night to take on the Gillett Tigers in an M&O battle. Wausaukee grabbed a 26-18 lead at the break before Gillett fought back in the second half, but fell, 52-46. The win for the Rangers sets up a battle of unbeatens Thursday night between Peshtigo and Wausaukee.

Madelyn Schlies of the Rangers scored 10 points to lead the team, Kaelyn Schlies and Maddison Renikow each scored eight, and Courtney Messar contributed seven.

For the Tigers, Victoria Loberger scored a game-high 13 points, Willow Pecha added 11, and Taylor Yonker put up nine points.

Maroons Roll to

Win Over Jets


Menominee's defense clamped down on North Central Tuesday night in the final three quarters of play allowing single digits in each quarter. The Maroons took advantage and outscored the Jets in all four quarters, on their way to a 60-28 victory.

Morgan Roman led the way for Menominee with 16 points while Paige Reiswitz and Emma Hofer each contributed 13 points. Jaida Lesperance pitched in with 12 points. North Central's Taylor Poupore paced the Jets attack with 15 points.

Eagles Double Up

on Thunderhawks


The Suring Eagles traveled to Oneida to take on the Thunderhawks in a matchup of two M&O squads. After leading at halftime 29-18, the Eagles clamped down on defense allowing just seven second half points, on their way to a 53-25 victory.

Suring's Katie Stegeman led all scorers with 12 points and Courtney Heimerl was close behind with 11 points. Wylee VanBellinger scored 10 and Greta Sleeter rounded out the even scoring attack with nine. Oneida Nation was led by Jashon Killspotted with seven points.

STAA Falls

to Phelps


In a matchup of non-conference foes, the St. Thomas Aquinas Academy Cavaliers played host to the Phelps Knights Friday afternoon. The teams battled to a 26-19 halftime score in favor of Phelps, before the Knights piled up 32 second-half points on their way to a 58-32 victory.

Gabrielle Beranek knotched nine points and Millie Benson scored seven points in the first half for STAA as they were down just seven at halftime, 26-19. In the second half, the stellar defensive play of Phelps' Amanda Grunick and Marti Rudawski helped the Knights to easy looks on the offensive end. Rudawski scored 15 of Phelps' 32 second-half points as the Knights took the win.

Grunick led the way for the Knights with 21 points, Rudawski added 15 and Ashley Buckmaster pitched in with 14 points.

The Cavaliers were led by Gabrielle Beranek with 16 points. Millie Benson added seven points and Michelle Kallestad chipped in with six points.
