M&O Girls Basketball

Freezing Temps Fail to Cool Peshtigo Streak

Lena Battles Back

Against Coleman


The Coleman Cougars looked to avenge an early season loss to the Wildcats as they played host to Lena Friday night.  In a game largely decided by defense, Coleman held the lead for nearly the entire game until the final three and a half minutes.  Clutch free throw shooting down the stretch gave the Wildcats a 32-25 victory.

"We're looking to create turnovers and push the ball but try to stay fresh and deeper than the other team as we have twelve returning lettermen," Lena Coach Tim Goldschmidt said of their fast pace tempo.

Mariana Meissner open the game with two free throws that gave the Cougars an early 2-0 lead.  Ally Demmith responded with a basket down low to knot the score at 2-2.  Ashlee Mayer took the advantage back for Coleman with a mid-range jumper and Meissner added another charity stripe point.  After Mayer connected at the free throw line, Meissner scored a layup that opened an 8-3 lead.  Lena responded with a layup from Brooke Peterson, a free throw from Brianna Sylvester and a rebound-put back from Demmith to tie the game.  Meissner secured a rebound, put the ball up and scored all while being fouled, she made the free throw to complete the three-point play.   Then, Meissner connected on a mid-range jumper as the Cougars went up 13-8.  Several free throws for the Wildcats made the score 14-10 before Demmith scored on a layup with 17 seconds left in the half.  Coleman clung onto a 14-12 lead at halftime.

"We came in with a game plan, knowing both of them girls (Meissner and Mayer) are exceptional athletes. Plus, all year we've been slow starters, we just have to learn to play a full thirty-six minute game rather than eighteen," said Coach Goldschmidt of their first half.

Meissner again started the half out hot as she drilled a long jumper before Mayer added another basket and Coleman opened up an 18-12 lead.  Two consecutive hoops from Demmith brought Lena right back.  Meckenna Portier hit a free throw for Lena to bring it back to a one-point game, 18-17.  Meissner dialed in her jump shot as she connected on another mid-ranger before Kyla Manning turned her steal into a layup, giving Coleman the 22-17 advantage.  From there, it was seemingly all Lena.  The Wildcats clutch free throw shooting and solid defense helped them to a 15-3 run to end the game, on their way to a 32-25 victory.  Demmith and Alayna Peterson scored 14 of the 15 final points for Lena.

"Demmith is our scorer and kind of our go-to player. [Alayna] Peterson, who shoots the lights out in practice all the time, but she's only a sophomore, she's young and we ask a lot of her.  She's our ball handler and we've instilled it in her that the way she can shoot she has to shoot," said Coach Goldschmidt after Demmith and Peterson combined for 25 of 32 points.

Demmith led the Wildcats in scoring with 16 and Alayna Peterson scored nine.  Meissner finished with 16 to pace the Cougar attack as Mayer pitched in with five.

Bulldogs Conquer

Cavaliers at Dog Pound


Friday evening the St. Thomas Aquinas Academy Cavaliers traveled to take on the M&O leading Peshtigo Bulldogs.  A balanced scoring attack helped the Bulldogs jump out to a 26-12 lead at half, before coming away with a commanding victory 45-19.

Shae Tonn and Claire Neumann shared top scoring honors for the Bulldogs with 10 points each, Megan Behnke finished the game with seven, and Jenna Thill and Hannah Swanson each pitched in with four.

Gabby Beranek paced the Cavaliers with eight points, Michelle Kallestad scored six, Halle Beranek added three and Millie Benson finished with two.

Lady Badgers

Blast Bobcats


The Florence Bobcats had some troubles stopping the quick Badgers from Niagara who bagged a 48-20 win over the visiting Bobcats.

After the first half Niagara had amassed 20 points to lead the Bobcats who had secured only 13.

The Badgers were led by Ki Eircidy Hannah with 15 points and Sarah Awn with 12.

The Bobcats were led by Jenna Springer with five points.

Wolverines

Repel Rebels


The Crivitz Wolverine girls had no issues securing a 43-26 win over the visiting Laona-Wabeno Rebels.

The Wolverines scored 27 points over the first half. That's one more point than the Rebels were able to manage over the course of the game. The Rebels were only able to muster up 14 points during the opening minutes.

Chloe Gruszynski led the way with 14 points for the Wolverines while teammates Emalee Johnsen and Sianna Guns added 10 points each.



Wolverines Dig Up

Win Over Badgers


The Niagara Lady Badgers played host to the Crivitz Wolverines Friday night, falling to the invading Wolverine forces 60-49.

It truly was a tale of two halves in Niagara as the Badgers built a 35-25 point lead. But the Wolverines were ready to return fire, ousting the Badgers over the second half 35-14, closing the 10 point gap and building one of their own for the win.

Taylor Bemis led all scorers during the game with 22 points. Bemis's stellar day was keyed by five behind the arc buckets. Teammates Chloe Grusynski and Talor Long both added 11 points.

Niagara was led by Sarah Nawn with 16 points and Jasmine Racine with 15.



Wausaukee Keeps Hopes

Alive With Close Win

Over Oneida Nation


The Wausaukee Ranger girls basketball team had to fend off a feisty Oneida Nation crew last friday to secure a close 47-42 verdict.

The first half was a bit of a back and forth battle but the Rangers entered the half with the edge 20-16.

After a couple quick scores and an Alexis Ranallo lay up the Rangers held a 7-0 early lead.

Oneida's Jashon Killspotted got the Oneida girls on the board with a lay up. She took a trip to the line after being followed n a three point shot, making one of her three free throws for a 7-3 deficit.

After two Maddison Renikow free throw points the Rangers held a 15-6 lead. At that point the Thunderhawks began to return fire. A few minutes later they saw themselves behind 19-14 thanks to a Laiya Lee put back.

Yelih Rodriguez made it 19-16 with another quick score.

Madelyn Schlies closed the half's scoring with a free throw.

The second half saw an even battle in the scoring column as Wausaukee's Courtney Messar plugged out eight second half points to help keep her girls ahead of the Thunderhawk surge.

Rodriguez added eight more to the Thunderhawks total in the second.

Oneida's Rodriguez took top scoring honors with 17 points while teammate Tierra Barber added 9.

Wausaukee was led by Renikow with 13 points. Messar and Kaelyn Schlies both chipped in nine each.

Lady Maroons Winning

Streak Snapped

Menominee has been one of the hottest teams in the area as they rode a six-game win streak into Escanaba Monday night in a battle of two GNC teams.  The Eskymos jumped out to a 32-23 lead at halftime before coasting to a 61-41 win, ending the Maroons' win streak.

Avrie Stewart led the Maroons with 13 points, Emma Hofer added eight points, Morgan Roman finished with six and Arikah Bellisle pitched in with five.

For the Eskymos, Maddy Willis scored a game-high 16 points, Lexi Chaillier scored 13, and Jen Brandt finished with a monster game of 12 points, 22 rebounds, and three blocks.
