Peshtigo and Suring Remain in Contention for M&O Title

Heise Joins Borchert As Lena's 2nd 1000 Point Scorer This Season

The Crivitz Wolverines trailed to Lena Friday night for an M&O conference showdown that saw the Wolverines victorious 71-63.

Though the Wildcats were unable to come away with the win they did however have a small victory in that Connor Heise hit his 1,000th career point.

Heise joins teammate Hunter Borchert who also hit 1,000 this season, accomplishments are not in short supply in Lena. Heise became the 9th boys basketball player in Lena history to surpass the milestone, doing so in his 53rd varisty game played.

"Its great for Connor to get this honor," said Lena Head Coach Jeff Heimke. "These two guys have put in so much work and I'm happy for them, hopefully they can help us get a few more wins down the stretch."

Talk about a barn burner, this one wasn't over till the very end. With lead changes happening every few moments the max capacity crowd was sent to an uproar more than once in this one.

The game started with a couple lead changes and after a Christian Portier free throw the Wildcats took the lead 18-17.

Kershaw Stumbris answered for the Wolverines on a layup and Hunter Borchert took the lead back off a three point bucket to give Lena the 21-19 lead.

Stumbris knotted things up again, sinking two free throws which was followed by Heise on a layup for his 997th point of his career. Moments later Heise let loose a shot from near the top of the arc giving Lena the 26-25 lead as well as achieving his 1,000th career point milestone.

"This is a huge accomplishment," said Heise. "Spent a lot of time in the gym. I've got to thank my family and friends for all their support, I couldn't have done it without them. We have a fantastic senior group here from the bottom to the top. Not only do we have two 1,000 point scorers but a guy who broke a three point record. We should have won this game but at the end of the day we are just a group of friends that love to compete. I couldn't feel better about getting this accomplishment with them."

After a thunderous response from the audience the team resumed play and thanks to a Travis Giese put back the Wolverines took the lead one again 27-26.

Dalton Anderson brought Lena to a 32-29 lead in the closing minute of the half.

Shane Bauer ensured that the Wildcats didn't get to bring any moment into the locker room as he closed out the half's scoring with a three point jumper from the corner for the 32-32 readout.

Borchert struck early in the second for a 36-32 lead and Giese answered with a outback to keep the Wolverines two points out.

Heise made a quick steal and score to raise the Wildcat tally to 38-34 with 15 minutes left to play.

From that point on the Wolverines found their stride and began to exert control over the Wildcats.

"When they went to the zone I had Kershaw in the middle," said Crivitz Head Coach Jeff Baumann. "He has always been our middle guy, but he was a little tentative tonight, so then we moved him outside. Charlie really stepped up at the high post spot too."

Jaden Werner got the rally rolling with a steal and score while Jakob Voss tied things up ay 40-40 on an in close jumper.

Charlie Johnsen pulled down a rebound which he returned to the hoop for a 44-40 lead and Voss cut his way inside moments later to further the lead forcing Lena to their first timeout of the half.

Stumbris turned it into a ten point game with a behind the arc bucket.

"We had about a four minute stretch in the second half that just killed us," said Jeff Heimke. "We missed easy shots inside and started firing off some bad shots after that. We need to be smarter."

Desperately needing a spark the Wildcats cycled in some fresh shoes as Jacob Anderley took the court. Anderley proved to be the spark they were looking for as he struck on a jumper and then two consecutive layups to bring Lena to a 52-46 deficit.

"He can defiantly shot the ball, he gave us a little burst and kept us in it," said Heimke.

Giese went on a run of his own next, striking first on a put back, then two free throws followed by another put back to give Crivitz the 58-46 lead.

"Travis is tough," said Baumann. " He has improved dramatically this year. Part of the reason he scores so well is that he has such an unorthodox style. It really makes him tough to defend."

During the closing minutes Borchert posted a two point play to close the gap to 66-58.

Anderson struck on a three pointer with 53 seconds remaining to give Lena a 67-63 deficit but the Wolverines responded finding strong with a couple Voss free throws as well as a couple Stumbris free throws to bring the game to its final verdict 71-63.

Heise was the evenings top performer with 22 points. He sank seven of his 11 free throws and drove home one three pointer and six doubles. Borchert and Anderson both posted 15 points.

Crivitz was led by Giese with 21 points and

Stumbris with 16. Voss finished the night with 14 while Bauer posted 12.



Mahoney is Money in Eagles Win Over Cavs

Welcoming the St. Thomas Aquinas Academy Cavaliers to town, the Suring Eagles looked comfortable on their home floor.  Although STAA brought the pressure early, Suring's Ryan Mahoney made sure the Eagles would not be stopped. 

Cavalier Jordan Bourdelais got STAA on the board first with a basket down-low.  Mahoney answered back with a long jumper to tie the score, before breaking away for a layup and giving Suring the lead.  STAA's Jack Farley began his big night with a three to take the lead right back, 5-4, with 13:49 on the clock.  In a game of "anything you can do"", Mahoney answered with back-to-back triples, grabbing a 10-5 advantage.  Farley came back down the court with a three of his own.   Suring's John Christensen interrupted Mahoney and Farley with a basket through contact.  Mahoney connected on his third three of the night on the very next Suring possession, to go up 15-8.  Eric Powers joined in on the action with a steal and layup for STAA, but the Eagles answered with a 5-0 run.  Mahoney cashed in on a layup as he scored 15 of Suring's first 17 points.  Christensen made two free throws and Will Vollmar added another to push the lead to 20-10 with 8:07 remaining in the half. Powers ended the run with a layup, but Mahoney came back firing yet another three-pointer and Chris Geniesse added a layup.  STAA fought back when Christian Hornick scored on two baskets inside and Farley added another for a quick 6-0 run, cutting the lead to 25-18.  Vollmar ended the run as he scored back-to-back layups, Geniesse added another and Mahoney sank his fifth triple of the half.  Suring took a 38-23 lead at halftime.

The second half started just how everyone expected, Mahoney fired in a triple before scoring on a layup. Farley responded with a three of his own before teammate Tyler Stuart poured in a triple.  The Cavs cut the lead down to 47-33 before a 10-0 Eagle run, including threes from Mahoney and Mitch Stegeman, opened a 57-33 lead.  Suring coasted in final 9:42 of the game scoring just five points the rest of the way.  Meanwhile, STAA went on a 19-5 run, but came up short by a score of 62-52.

Mahoney finished with 31 in the contest, including 21 in the first half, that featured seven three pointers. 

"It was an on day for sure, but it was definitely my teammates play too.  With the way they drove, made the defense collapse, they kicked it out to me and it's just an easy shot then.  Almost all of the credit has to go to them because without them I wouldn't have had those opportunities," Mahoney said of his big performance.

Christensen followed up with 12 points, Geniesse added six and Vollmar ended the night with five.

"Ryan [Mahoney] was in a zone tonight.  It was good that the kids recognized that and got him the ball.  It was fun to watch him play tonight.  The plan was to get the ball to our bigs but I guess Ryan kind of changed that tonight," Suring Coach Jim Keeffe said of Mahoney.

STAA was led by Farley with 19 points, Stuart pitched in with 14, Powers added 10 and Hornick finished with five.

When asked about the overall importance of this win, Coach Keeffe said, "All of the games are important. We do have our eye on the top of the M&O, we want to keep pace, and we're going to need some help, but we have to take them one at a time.  I told them pregame that we can't have any bumps or asterisks, we have to come out every night and play." Keeffe added, "I think it was important too that we haven't been on track since probably the Peshtigo game, so it was good to see our kids play a complete game.  I think we have been playing well defensively but we haven't shot well or ran the break well, but tonight we did those well."



Peshtigo Rolls Past Oneida

Although the Oneida Nation Thunderhawks were in the confines of their own gym, the Peshtigo Bulldogs made the gym feel like home Friday night.  A hounding Bulldog defense held the Thunderhawks to just 15 first-half points to open a 38-15 lead at the break.  In the second half, Peshtigo didn't let up, crushing Oneida 69-28.  The Bulldogs shot 42% from the field and doubled-up the Thunderhawks on the glass, 38-19.

Peshtigo's Ryley Demmith paced the attack with 17 points, Joey Bradley followed up with 10 points, Max Neumann finished with eight, and Matt Larsen totaled seven.

Oneida was led by Ryan King with seven points, Seth Charles and Richard Summers each scored six, and Crimson Powless ended the night with five.



Wausaukee Takes Close Battle With Coleman

It was a barn burner on the court of the Coleman Cougars Friday as the Wausaukee Rangers came to town for an M&O boys conference match up that saw the Rangers victorious 49-42.

After one half was posted in the books Coleman held the edge 21-19, but that two point lead would not stand as the Rangers kicked it into gear during the second half.

It was Wausaukee's Cody Renikow who did a majority of the work for the Rangers, helping to overcome the Cougars in the second while securing top scoring honors with 28 points.

He was followed by Matthew Delfosse with seven while Christian Shigouri and Tony Rollo each tallied five.

Coleman was led by Cole Woulf with 18 points and Matt Kostreva with seven. Austin Marquardt posted six.

In overtime, the Thunderhawks' defense was too much for the Wildcats, holding Lena to just five points, and going on to win 72-66.

Lena's Connor Heise led all scorers with 30 points, Hunter Borchert added 17, and Dalton Anderson and Jacob Staidl each scored five.

For Oneida, Elijah Metoxen paced the attack with 19 points, Crimson Powless followed with 18, Seth Charles pitched in with 11, and Jonathan Massey added eight.
