Lena was able to build a significant lead exiting the first half ahead 31-21. The lead was made possible thanks to a triple helping of threes from Hunter Borchert and another two long rangers from Dalton Anderson.

Wausaukee was led by Rollo with 14 points and Cody Renikow with 12. Matthew Delfosse posted 11.

STAA Stifles Gillett With Big First Half

Early and often, the St. Thomas Aquinas Academy Cavaliers looked very comfortable in the confines of their own gym against the Gillett Tigers Thursday night.  After quickly jumping out to a 47-18 halftime lead, STAA cruised to an 80-50 win over Gillett.

With everything working in their favor early, the Cavaliers built up a hefty lead.  Three-pointers, fast break points, inside baskets, and stingy defense helped STAA build up a 28-4 lead before the 10-minute mark of the first half. 

"The last four games we have really played well.  Today, in the first half, I thought we played well.  We moved the ball well, we took the open shot and hit a bunch of shots.  I told them the first half of the first half we really need to come out and play hard," said STAA Coach Ric Powers of his team's intensity to start the game.

Gillett's Jesse Schaefer drilled two free throws that helped build a bit of moment for the Tigers.  Christian Hornick answered back with a layup, but the Tigers responded with two more free throws and a three-pointer from Grant Sexton.  STAA's Tyler Stuart connected on a triple and Jack Farley drew contact inside, and sank both free throw attempts.  Farley added two more free throws before another Stuart three pushed the lead to 40-13 with 4:25 on the clock.

Logan Krause drilled a long-range three-pointer for the Tigers, but the Cavaliers responded with a 7-2 run to end the half.  Eric Powers sank three shots from the charity stripe, Joe Faucett scored on a layup, and two Jordan Bourdelais free throws at the end of the half pushed the lead to 47-18.

It was a different story in the second half as the teams went nearly basket-for-basket throughout the final 18 minutes of play.  The most points scored in a row by one team was five, each team did so once.  A big help for the Cavaliers was their ability to shoot free throws as they went 8 of 10 in the second half and 19 of 25 in the game.  STAA took the contest by a final of 80-50.

"We played very intense defensively, especially to start the game.  Offensive end, move the ball and share the ball.  Those are the things we wanted to focus on and we did them," Coach Powers said of his squad.

Tyler Stuart led all scorers with 20 points for the Cavs, Jack Farley added 18, Eric Powers pitched in 16 and Jordan Bourdelais finished with 14. 

Gillett's Ben Frank led the team with 13 points, Grant Sexton followed closely with 12, Logan Krause added 11, and Cole Long finished with eight.

"This is big, I don't care who you play.  I'm hoping that this now builds for us.  Just winning these games, if you lose these games you go into the tournament with a bad vibe, now we're going into the tourney feeling good," said Coach Powers.

Eagles Fly High Over Cougars

In each team's final regular season contest, the Suring Eagles played host to the Coleman Cougars Thursday night.  Suring built up a 26-14 lead at halftime, before coasting to a 47-34 victory in front of their home crowd.

Ryan Mahoney led all scorers with 15 points for the Eagles, John Christensen added 11, Will Vollmar pitched in with eight and Chris Geniesse and Mitch Stegeman each finished with five.

For the Cougars, Cole Woulf led the way with 11 points, Austin Marquardt added nine, and Miles Kremsriter chipped in six.



WIAA Playoffs



Lena Shellacks Sevastopol in Regional Opener


The Lena Wildcats made a home court statement Tuesday night when they handled the Sevastopol Pioneers 85-61.

That score was narrowed a bit over the second half thanks to some excellent behind the arc shooting by the Pioneers but at one point in the first half the Pioneers found themselves behind 27-6.

"We definitely wanted to put this one away early," said Lena Head Coach Jeff Heimke. "When you play teams that have had long season your always better off with an early lead. If you leave them hang around all game it can sometimes turn into a game long fight. We definitely talked about coming out fast."

That huge lead was built on good shooting from the arc and vicious lanes drives by the Wildcats.

Connor Heise posted the first points of the game from the free throw line. he was followed by Dalton Anderson on a three pointer.

Next it was Heise again, then Borchert for the 9-0 lead with 16 minutes left in the first.

Sevastopol's Brent Haberli got the Pioneers on the board with a three point bucket before Borchert, Heise and Marquardt all recoded two points each for the 15-3 lead.

"We went to a 2-3 zone the second half," said Heimke. "They definetly have some young kids that can shoot. They will be a tough team once they start to develop a bit more."

Over the next few minutes the Wildcats went wild, propelling themsleves to that aforementioned 27-6 lead.

Later in the half Colby Borchert struck from behind the arc to give Lena a 38-11.

Just before the end of the half Sevastopol found two three point bucket, one off the hands of Robby Pollman the second off the hands of Haberli.

At the end of half the Wildcats had little to worry about as they totted a 42-24 lead.

Borchert opened the second half with a three point jumper and was followed by Heise who earned a trip to the free throw line. Heise made both shots to give Lena the 47-24 lead.

Later in the half the Wildcats showed the Pioneers, who had been draining three point buckets at will, that they too have the ability to make shots from downtown. Heise put one in for the 68-40 lead and moments later Anderson plugged out another for the 71-46 lead.

Jacob Staidl threw his name onto the list of players with three point buckets, bringing his teams total to 76.

Lena's final score came off the hands of Zach Pynaker who drilled a free throw shot for the 85 point tally.

Heise led all scorers with 25 points. He was perfect at the free throw line, going 10 for 10. Borchert added 19 points while Anderson tacked on 15.

Pollman led the Pioneers with 20 points while teammate Johnny Jorns posted 12. Eddie Garcia got nine on the night.

"We most likely will be facing N.E.W Lutheran," said Heimke. "If we do, it will be the fifth straight time we have met them in the tournament, so I don't think I will need to encourage our kids too much to get up for that one, they know just how big of a game it is. Hopefully we can get a big crowd that's ready to be loud on Friday."

Suring Slams Gillett

The Suring Eagles posted a first round WIAA boys basketball tournament win Tuesday night, taking down the Gillett Tigers 71-44.

The Eagles were led by the efforts of John Christensen and Ryan Mahoney who shared top scoring honors at 17 points each. Chris Geniesse followed up wth 12 points.

Gillett was led by Bo Krueger and Cole Long who both posted 11.

Niagara Negates Elcho

WIAA's opening round of the Division 5 playoffs featured the Badgers of Niagara playing host to the Elcho Hornets. Niagara jumped out to a 30-12 halftime lead, before cruising to win the matchup, 56-30. The Badgers outrebounded the Hornets 42 to 15 in the matchup.

"We played the best half of basketball, in the first half, that we played all year. We were patient on offense and played great half-court defense. They like to drive but we really helped well on defense. We just dominated on the backboards," said Niagara Coach James Hoogland.

Niagara's Ethan Blagec scored a game-high 20 points, Kalvin Jeffords pitched in with nine, and Austin Hagerty added seven. Elcho was led by Mac Morrison with 11 points, Jacob Parise added nine, and Hunter Novak finished with five.

Blazers Blast Patriots Out of Playoffs

The Goodman-Pembine Patriots were faced with the tough task of traveling to Green Bay to take on NEW Lutheran Tuesday night. NEW jumped out to a 43-14 lead at halftime before coasting to a final score of 89-48.

"This was a very close game through the midway point of the first half before our offense went cold and we didn't protect the ball." Patriots Coach John Swick added, "Down 43-14 at the half was just too big of a deficit to overcome. NEW Lutheran did a great job controlling the boards and those second chance opportunities was the difference. I hope our younger guys will look at this game and accept the challenge of putting in the offseason work to get to where we need to be to compete in the post season. I'm proud of my guys for fighting to the end and never giving up tonight and throughout the season."

Patriot Drew Morrison led the team with 12 points while Noah Suther and Hagan Braaten each chipped in with eight points.

Cavaliers Cascade Bobcats

In the opening round of the WIAA Division 5 playoffs, the St. Thomas Aquinas Academy Cavaliers traveled to Florence to take on the Bobcats. Taking a two-point lead into halftime, 28-26, the STAA boys found themselves down two near the end of regulation. Jack Farley connected on a layup to tie the game at 63-63, sending the game to overtime. There, STAA outscored Florence 15-11 and won the matchup, 78-74.

"We went into OT and played great during the extra period, getting the lead early and hitting some free throws to win in the end." STAA Coach Ric Powers added, "Jack Farley hit a layup at the end of regulation to send it into OT and Eric Powers hit two free throws with three seconds left in OT to seal the win. Great team win."

Eric Powers led the Cavs with 22 points, Jack Farley added 20, Christian Hornick pitched in with 17 and Tyler Stuart finished with 13 points.

Florence's Glenn Berry led all scorers with 24 points, Nathan Krueger added 18 points and 11 rebounds, and Nick Dishaw finished with 11 points.

Patriots Pound Eagles

Thursday evening the Goodman-Pembine Patriots hosted the Stephenson Eagles in a non-conference matchup to end their regular season.  The Patriots piled on 50 first-half points to grab a 50-19 lead at halftime.  Stephenson outscored Goodman-Pembine in the second half, but the lead was too much as th

e Patriots took the win 74-51.

"We were able to dictate the tempo in the first half and hit our shots in transition early. I was very impressed with how we handled ourselves against a very physical team. We came out a little slow in the second half and didn't handle Stephenson's pressure very well. After some empty trips on offense we finally settled in and controlled the ball better and did enough to secure the win," said Patriots Coach John Swick.

Noah Suther and Hagan Braaten each led the Patriots with 22 points apiece, Wyatt Marcy finished with 13 points and Drew Morrison added 9. points.
