M&O Girls Basketball - Peshtigo Maintains Lead Going Into Final Stretch

Raiders Slowly Pull Away From Bulldogs

Riding a 14-game winning streak, the Peshtigo Bulldogs welcomed a talented Kiel Raiders team to town Saturday afternoon.  A quick-paced, physical first half led to a 24-19 halftime score in favor of the Raiders.  In the second half, Peshtigo battled, but came up short, falling 50-38 to Kiel.

It seemed as though every time the Bulldogs tightened the score, the Raiders were poised for an answer.  A free throw from Shae Tonn and a layup from Emma Frederickson gave Peshtigo an early 5-4 lead.  Kiel's Savana Walsdorf responded right back with a layup of her own.  It was then Madi Martin's turn to regain the lead for the Bulldogs on a basket down low, 7-6.  Josie Binversie's triple from the wing gave the Raiders a 9-7 lead with 13:46 on the clock in the first half, and they never gave it up after that.  Martin's long jumper cut the lead to 12-11, but Kiel responded with a 5-0 run to extend the lead to 17-11.  Peshtigo trimmed the lead again thanks to a free throw from Frederickson and another Martin mid-range shot, but it was Walsdorf connecting on a three for Kiel.  Martin split from the charity stripe before Claire Neumann slashed inside for a layup, slimming the lead to 22-19.  Two Walsdorf free throws just before the half gave Kiel the advantage at the break, 24-19.

"This is by far the most pressure we have seen out of a press.  Other teams have pressed us and backed off, Kiel did that from start to finish.  We haven't been a team that has played a whole lot of up-tempo anyway, and I think it knocked us off rhythm a little bit early on," Peshtigo Head Coach Pete Villas said of Kiel's pressure defense. 

Tonn scored on a quick layup out of halftime, but two quick Kiel baskets gave them their biggest lead thus far at 28-21.  Peshtigo didn't panic, Martin sank a jumper, Frederickson followed suit with a jumper of her own, and Tonn added another layup for a 6-0 Bulldog run.  With the score at 28-27, the teams exchanged free throws before Frederickson cut down the lane for a layup, making the score 31-30 in favor of Kiel with 11:29 left.  The Raiders pushed the lead back to 34-30 on a free throw from Lilly Schmitz and a layup by Binsversie.  From there, the Raiders outscored the Bulldogs 16-8 in the final nine minutes of the game, thanks, in large part to free throws, to win the contest 50-38. 

"We had opportunities to get over that hump, but just couldn't do it. They would pull away and we would fight back, but at the very end we had to foul and they shot free throws very well down the stretch which made the difference." Coach Villas added, "I'm very happy with our turnover numbers overall, but it seemed like the turnovers were big turnovers and against a team like this we have to take advantage of our opportunities."

Peshtigo juniors Emma Frederickson and Madi Martin carried the Bulldogs, scoring 28 of 38 points.  Frederickson finished with 15 and Martin ended the day with 13.  Shae Tonn added five points and Claire Neumann pitched in three.

"Emma had her best game as a varsity player. She scored 15 points, rebounded well, attacked the basket, hit outside shots.  Her and Madi in this last three or four game stretch have really gotten into a groove and have been playing consistent," Coach Villas said.

Kiel's Savana Walsdorf led the Raiders with 12 points while 6'3" center Sierra Schobert finished with 11 points and 12 rebounds.

"We held our composure, fought until the bitter end, and if we can finish out the season playing like this, good things will happen.  This game was extremely important, especially late in the season.  I'm extremely happy with where this team is at right now.  These girls work hard day-in and day-out and their never-quit attitude has shown through all of these games," said Coach Villas of his players.



Eagles Soar Over Cavaliers

A balanced scoring attack from the Suring Eagles made things difficult all night for the visiting St. Thomas Aquinas Academy Cavaliers, Friday night.  Eight of the nine players that entered the game for Suring scored as they took home a 54-21 victory over STAA.

Bella Manske gave the Coleman girls some troubles over the first half as she scored on multiple put back to help propel her tram to a 29-19 lead at the half.

Mariana Meissner and Kaliey Klimek did all they could to keep the Cougars rolling as the two combined for ten first half points.

Wausaukee's Alexis Ranallo hit on eight second half points, helping to ensure a comeback was well out of reach.

Ranallo finished the night as the games leading scorer with 12 points while Madelyn Schlies and Manske both chipped in 10 to the total.



Wolverines Bury Lena Under 18 Point Lead

Crivitz held the edge login into the intermission 33-26 thanks to some fantastic play by Chloe Gruszynski who ended the evening with 23 points to lead all scorers.
