M&O BOYS BASKETBALL - Bulldogs Collar Wildcats for First Place in M&O

Just three days after taking on a tough Suring team on the road, the Bulldogs were faced with another challenge, this time in the confines of their gym.  The Lena Wildcats brought their 8-1 record into Peshtigo, to take on the 8-1 Bulldogs, as both teams were tied at the top of the M&O.  Only one team could come away with the crucial victory as the conference season is winding down.

As Newton said in his third law, "For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction."  The same was true for most of the first half.  Peshtigo's Joey Bradley and Matt Larsen each connected on layups, only to see Lena's Riley Marquardt score a layup of his own and Hunter Borchert sink two free throws.  Marquardt then connected on back-to-back layups for a Wildcat 12-10 lead, but Bulldogs Larsen and Max Neumann hit baskets to grab the lead back, 14-12.

Peshtigo gained some ground and opened their biggest lead of the half after Cole Tackmier drilled a triple, and Bradley and Ryley Demmith each scored on layups for a 21-16 advantage.  Lena responded with a 6-1 run knotting the game again at 22-22.  The Bulldogs made good of the final minutes of the half as Bradley broke the tie with a layup before adding to the lead with another layup.  Trent Carriveau joined the scoring column with a three-pointer and Cameron Noffke sank a layup with 6.1 seconds on the clock.  Peshtigo grabbed a 33-28 lead heading into halftime.

When asked about the physical first half, Peshtigo Head Coach Nate Motkowski said, "I thought the first half was a grinder.  We were going back-and-forth, exchanging punches, we went into halftime and said we didn't play our best half, had some of our starters on the bench, but we were up by five.  I told them to relax and imagine what we can do in the second half."

In that second half, the Bulldogs showed why they're so difficult to beat at home.  The up-tempo defense led to transition baskets as Demmith scored two buckets and Bradley added another for a hasty 6-0 run. 

"We told them the first three minutes of that second half were going to make the difference.  We wanted a lot of energy, a lot of attitude, and we came out in those first three minutes and that's where we won the game," said Coach Motkowski of their fast start to the second half.

Dalton Anderson gave the Wildcats a much needed three-pointer to end the run, but Bradley answered right back with a triple.  It was then Connor Heise's turn to show off his range as he connected from behind the arc, cutting the lead to 42-34.

Peshtigo, like a heavyweight boxer, just kept delivering punishing body shots.  Demmith got inside for a layup and later connected on one of two free throws.  Lena answered with four straight points, but Peshtigo came back with a 7-0 run of their own.  Heise sank two free throws to end the scoreless drought for Lena, but Larsen drilled a triple and Nathan Goneau added a layup, pushing the lead to 57-40.  After three points from the charity stripe via Borchert and Heise, Neumann slashed through the lane, drew contact, and completed the and-one with a free throw.

The Bulldog defense held the Wildcats without a field goal for over seven minutes in the second half, all while piling on 16 points.  Lena did what they could to make a comeback, cutting the score to 66-53 on a Heise layup at the 2:06 mark, but free throw shooting in the final two minutes iced the game for the Bulldogs.  Peshtigo won by the final score of 72-53.

"I'm really proud of our guys.  They had a tough loss in Suring and they could have got rattled, they could have got down on themselves, but we had two really good practices and I thought they turned around and really delivered tonight.  So, I'm really happy and I'm really proud of our guys," Coach Motkowski said of the big win.

Connor Heise led the Wildcats with a game-high 25 points, Hunter Borchert added 11, Dalton Anderson pitched in with seven and Riley Marquardt finished with six.

A balanced Bulldog offense was paced by Ryley Demmith and Joey Bradley each with 15 point, Matt Larsen finished with 13, Max Neumann had 10, and Cole Tackmier added eight.

Motkowski talked about the Bulldogs' scoring attack, "Very balanced. We don't have any selfish players on this team, they're all looking to make the easiest and best play.  I think, even if you do stop a guy or two, we've got some other guys that are going to step up and these guys just play really well as a team."



Cougars Cage Tigers

The Coleman Cougars took to the road Friday night as they took on the Tigers in Gillett.  After battling to a close halftime score of 21-19, the Cougars ramped up their efforts in the second half, cruising to a 64-33 victory.

Cole Woulf paced Coleman with 21 points, Austin Tachick added 15, Peyton Nelson and Cody Van Hoff each pitched in with eight and Aaron Fraiser finished with six.

Gillett's Logan Krause led the Tigers with 13 points, Grant Sexton chipped in with six, and Cole Long and Jesse Schaefer each had four.



Patriots Sneak Past Cougars in OT

Monday evening the Goodman-Pembine Patriots played host to the Coleman Cougars in a non-conference matchup.  The 36 minutes of regulation was not enough as the teams battled to a tie, sending the game into overtime.  In OT, the Patriots hung on to a 45-43 victory thanks to a layup from Evan Metras on a nice assist from Noah Suther with nine seconds left.

Hagan Braaten led the way for Goodman-Pembine with 17 points and Noah Suther added eight.  For the Cougars, it was Cole Woulf that took home top scoring honors with 20 points, Austin Tachick pitched in 10 and Peyton Nelson added five.

"I was so pleased to see us start fast and build a nice lead but then we weren't patient and Coleman did a great job of coming back and we had a two-point lead at the half. Coleman came out better than we did and built a five-point lead early before we settled down and got back into it. Both teams stepped up the defense and it was a one procession game the rest of the way. This was such a defensive battle and that made every procession critical because there just weren't going to be a lot of opportunities on offense. This was a huge win for our program at just the right time," said Patriots Head Coach John Swick of the win.



Suring Slams White Lake

The Suring Eagles took a resounding 61-21 win over the visiting White Lake Lakers Monday night.

It was all Suring all night as three Eagles hit double digits. Ryan Mahoney led the charge with 12 points while Caleb Lally chipped in 11. Chris Geniesse got 10 for his Eagles.

White lake was led by C. Schewe who scored 15 of White Lakes 21.



Suring Survives Contest With Niagara

The tough and upset minded Suring Eagles had their hands full Friday night when they took the long trip north to Niagara. After two halves of all the Eagles were victorious 51-44.

Suring held the edge going into the half 31-25 and continued to hang onto the lead over the second half where they outscored the Badgers 20-19.

Chris Geniesse led the Eagles with 18 points while Ryan Mahoney added 17 to the tally. John Christensen chipped in 11.

"We played extremely hard all game," said Niagara head Coach Jim Hoogland. "Suring is a good defensive team but we had too many unforced mistakes. We turned the ball over 16 times in the first half while under their press."

Niagara was led by Ethan Blagec who took top scoring honors with 21 points. Jacob Bousley got 8.



Crivitz Stays Strong With Win over Oneida

The Crivitz Wolverines bagged a 50-36 win over the visiting Oneida Nation Thunderhawks Friday eveing.

After one half of play it was any ones ball game as the Wolverines held a slight edge 23-22. But that all changed over the second half thanks in part to the efforts of travis Giese who put up 12 second half points.

Giese ended the evening as the games leading scorer with 20 points while teammate Jakob Voss added on 10. Charles Johnsen got nine.

Crimsen Powless found his way to 12 points to lead the Thunderhawks.



Peshtigo Takes Big Win Over Crivitz

The season is far from over but it certainly is looking good for the Peshtigo Bulldogs who soundly defeated the Crivitz Wolverines Monday night in Peshtigo 58-46.

Though the differential increased as the game progressed it really was anyones game throughout the first half.

"We wore them down tonight," said Peshtigo Head Coach Nate Motkowski. "We have a pretty deep bench which helped to tire them out. We had some of our young guys step up and play some good minutes tonight."

Crivitz started the evenings action with a Kershaw Stumbris two point bucket. Matt Larsen helped to get the Bulldogs going with a well timed pass to Ryley Demmith who struck for the 2-2 score.

Crivitz grabbed the lead from the Bulldogs and held it for a few minutes before the Bulldogs returned to the lead thanks to a Max Neumann to Justin Thill score for the 9-8 lead.

On the Wolverines following possession Larsen blasted a score attempt out of a Wolverine shooters hands before Thill scooped up the loose ball, taking it to the hoop for the score as well as a drawn foul. After the successful Thill free throw the Bulldogs led 11-8.

Wolverines Shane Bauer helped to keep it close as he hit on a three point bucket for the 12-11 deficit.

Demmith got an opportunity to let a long ball fly and didn't waste the chance, bringing the Bulldogs to a 15-12 lead after the behind the arc shot.

At the end of the first the Bulldogs led 21-17.

Over the early goings of the second the Wolverines started to see their chances at retaking the lead begin to evaporate behind a strong Bulldog scoring push much of the push had to do with strict defesmne and some great rebounding.

"We knew they had a few taller guys that board well so we focused first on boxing them out and making sure that all out guys were involved in rebounding."

The push was led off by Demmith on a hard lane drive. He was followed by Bradley on two consecutive scores and Larsen on a three point bucket. Bradley chipped in one more score before the Wolverines Jayden Werner ended the streak to make it 36-25.

"We struggled shooting the ball tonight,' said Baumann. "The problem was rebounding and defense. We could get more buckets if we didn't give them so many chances. We only took about five shots outside the lane during the second half. We still scored 46 which against this defense wasn't the worst.

Crivitz's Travis Giese drew a foul on his way to the hoop and successfully made it a three point play to bring the score to 40-27.

Later in the half, Wolverine Jakob Voss found his way to a couple inside jumpers to help bring the Wolverines to a 52-39 deficit.

Giese put up the final points of the game on two trips to the free throw line. he made both of his first visit shots and one of his two second visit attempts to give the game its final score of 58-46.

Bradley took top scoring honors for the Bulldogs with 17 points while Demmith and Thill both got 11.

Giese led the Wolverines with 15 points. Voss chipped in 12 while Bauer ended the night with 12.

"We have gotten better over the past week. We had four games in seven days," said Motkowkski. "If that doesn't get you ready for playoffs I don't know what will."



Lena Wins Late Over STAA

Looking to keep pace in the M&O, the Lena Wildcats traveled to St. Thomas Aquinas Academy Monday night to take on the Cavaliers. STAA held the lead the majority of the game, including a 48-44 advantage with five minutes left. Lena snagged the lead with just under four minutes left. As the lead was exchanged, the Wildcats went on to score eight straight points, coming away with a win, 59-51.

Connor Heise led the Wildcats with 22 points, Dalton Anderson added 18, Hunter Borchert pitched in 10, and Jacob Staidl finished with three.

Jack Farley paced STAA with 17 points, Tyler Stuart added 15, Christian Hornick had nine, and Jordan Bourdelais and Joseph Faucett each finished with five.



Cavaliers Win Dual with Rangers

The Cavaliers of St. Thomas Aquinas Academy took the trip up to Wausaukee Friday night to battle the Rangers. The backcourt combination of Jack Farley and Tyler Stuart were nearly unstoppable as they scored a combined 52 points, in a 77-44 victory for STAA.

Stuart finished with 27 and Farley with 25, Eric Powers added 10 points and Christian Hornick pitched in with seven.

Wausaukee was paced by Matthew Delfosse with 20 points, Christian Shigouri had 13, Cody Renikow chipped in with eight and Brandon Shigouri finished with three.
