Peshtigo Takes Two Game Lead; Crivitz Moves Into Second Place Tie

Crivitz Knocks

Off Wausaukee


Coming into Thursday nights match up with Crivitz the Wausaukee Rangers were sitting in second place in the M&O rankings, after two halves The Crivitz Wolverines had successfully defeated the Rangers 53-43.

The victory helped the Wolverines enter a tie for second with the Rangers with both two games back from league leading Peshtigo.

"Wausaukee versus Crivitz, its always a war," said Messar. "Our defense has been our forte all year and tonight I say a let down. I'm kind of in awe right not. You gotta give Crivitz credit they exploited mistakes and made adjustments after half time."

Starting off the game for the Rangers was Kaelyn Schlies who slipped through the lane for the games first layup. Schlies added another point shortly after off a free throw and repeated the line perfromance moments later.

She was not done yet though, hitting on another two pointer before being answered by Crivitz's Sianna Guns to make it a 2-8 game in favor of the Rangers.

"She is a very gifted kid," said Messar. "She doesn't like to lose."

Guns helped to narrow the lead with a three point play.

At about the mid-way point of the first half the Wolverines' Taylor Bemis sunk a behind the arc bucket to bring the Wolverine deficit to 12-8.

Maddison Renikow made the first there pointer for the angers to make it 18-11.

Lexi Oyer punched the ticket on the first half with a three point bucket to make it 26-18 login into the intermission.

"Tonight was about rythem," said Crivitz head coach Brett Meyers. "Our girls tend to play tentatively and its been hard for them to break that habit. But when they start to move and the other team makes a few mistakes they find their rythem."

After a few seconds had ticked off during the second half Oyer hit on her second long range jumper of the night to further narrow the lead 26-21.

Oyer's third triple came moments later, bringing the Wolverines to a 26-26 tie.

Wausaukee returned to the lead thanks to a Madelyn Schlies layup and three pointer which set the score at 33-30.

A Guns three point jumper gave the Wolverines the lead once again at 36-33.

From that point on the Wolverines took control of the game and built a lead that they would not relinquish for the rest of regulation.

"We tend to get into lulls where we watch the game instead of playing it," said Messar. "I think this might be a result of the youth of this team. We have some growing pains but we have to figure these out."

Chloe Gruszynski scored the final two points of the contest on two separate visits to the free throw line to give the game its final score 53-43.

The loss bumps the Rangers down to a tie for second place with the Wolverines. both teams will be looking for Peshtigo to slip going further into the second round of games.

"We have to stay positive," said Messar. "Life and basketball are both about ups and downs and right we are down. But its time to re-focus and get back on track. We are going to look for help along the way. We will take control of what we can."

Kaelyn Schlies was the evenings top scorer with 16 points. Teammates Madelyn Schlies and Bella Manske both added on eight points.

The Crivitz girls were led by Gruszynski with 15 points and Lexi Oyer with 11. Taylor Bemis added 10 points while Guns finished the night with seven.

"I'm really excited for the kids," said Meyers. "This is a cross town game that is always important and the girls worked hard for this. We didn't have a great showing in the first match but definitely recovered for this one."



Hot Start Leads

Peshtigo Over Lena


As the undefeated Peshtigo Bulldogs hold a two-game lead in conference, they understand every night they will get their opponent's best shot.  Monday night, that opportunity was given to the Lena Wildcats.  The Bulldogs started the game with energy on their way to a 29-4 lead, which helped them to a 69-51 victory at the end of the game.

Quick hands from Bulldog defenders made things difficult for the Wildcats right away.  The key beneficiary of the stout defense was Peshtigo's Claire Neumann who scored nine of the first 11 Bulldog points as they opened a hasty 11-0 lead.  Kendra Slempkes ended the Bulldog run with a layup, but Neumann answered right back with a basket of her own.  Megan Behnke joined in with a layup for the Bulldogs to push the lead to 15-2.  Meckenna Portier's long jumper gave Lena their second hoop of the game, but Peshtigo responded in a big way.  A 14-0 run, thanks in part to two Jenna Thill three-pointers, over the next five minutes of game time opened a 29-4 lead for the Bulldogs. 

"In the second half of the season, we decided to try to be a little more up-tempo. We came out and pressed right away, got some easy buckets, got things rolling, and that carried over to both ends of the floor.  I thought, the first half tonight was the best half of basketball we've played all year," said Peshtigo Coach Pete Villas.

Lena was able to cut the lead before halftime.  A layup and a triple from Brianna Sylvester trimmed the lead to 29-11.  Kaylee Huberty connected on a short jumper and Slempkes added a layup before halftime, as Lena cut the lead to 36-18 at the break.

In the second half, the teams exchanged baskets for nearly the entire 18 minutes of play. Neumann hit a short jumper before Lena's Sylvester drained a three and Portier connected with a mid-range jump shot.  The Wildcats mounted a bit of a comeback when Sylvester found her way to two layups, Madysen Herald drilled a three and Sylvester added a triple of her own.  This cut the lead to 51-40, but it was as close as Lena would get it.

Hannah Swanson drained a triple before fighting for a rebound and a put back.  Neumann added another short jumper and Peshtigo's 7-0 run pushed the lead back to 58-40.  Back-to-back Shae Tonn layups gave the Bulldogs their biggest lead of the second half at 20 points with 3:20 left to play.  Peshtigo held on for a 69-51 victory.

When asked of his players stepping up, Coach Villas couldn't say enough, "Shae does an excellent job handling the ball. She can score when she has to, but she sees the floor so well.  It was nice that when she realized we needed to get it going, she was the one to step up.  Every game, we seem to have someone new that sees that and steps it up.  Hopefully that makes it difficult for teams to defend us and tonight we had four girls in double-digits. Overall, I was really happy with our energy tonight."

Neumann paced Peshtigo with 16 points, Tonn added 12, Thill scored 11, and Swanson finished with 10.  For Lena, Sylvester piled on a game-high 21 points, Huberty pitched in with six, and Slempkes, Herald, and Kaitlyn Hodkiewicz each added five.

"We didn't press and I thought we didn't have the same energy as we did in the first half, but we were able to keep that lead.  We stayed even with them, I wish we would have been better defensively, but they started hitting some shots.  The big thing is that we got out of here with a win, our streak is still going, we're 11-0 in conference and we're reaching the goals we want to reach," Coach Villas said.
