Area Girls Lace Cleats Up For Another Season

Crivitz Holds off

Stephenson In Rainy

Day Softball

The Crivitz Wolverine girls aren't afraid of a little rain, nor are they afraid of the Stephenson Eagles, who they battled for a win last Monday 9-6.

Stephenson jumped to an early first inning lead thanks to a treat RBI single. Hanna Christensen of Crivitz made sure that the damage was minimal, as she struck out three to end the inning.

During the bottom half of the inning the Crivitz girls seized the lead. Laken Ducaine led off with a base due to being hit by a pitch. Taylor Blake walked and scored later off a wild pitch. Christensen reached off a single and CeCe Johnsen slammed a double. Talor Long clobbered an RBI double while Hailey Andrist crushed an RBI single. By the end of the inning the Wolverines were ahead 4-1.

Christensen made quick work of the top of the second with two strikeouts.

Long scored Johnsen during the second inning, then crossed the plate herself for the 6-1 lead.

After another quick top of the inning the Wolverine bats continued to ring as Ducaine posted a single. Blake reached on a walk while Long bagged her third RBI of the day for the 8-1 lead.

Stephenson's Truitt found her way to the plate during the fourth while teammate Thoune added another during the fifth for a 8-3 deficit.

Crivitz's Blake posted the final run of the night to raise the Wolverines to a 9-3 verdict.

Christensen took the win for the Wolverines with 15 strikeouts on the day, allowed three hits and three runs while walking one.

The Eagles' Truitt was saddled with the loss, striking out two while allowing 12 hits and nine runs along with four walks.

At the plate Long was three of four with one run and three RBIs. Johnsen was three of four with one run while Andrist recored two hits in her four at bats with an RBI to boot.

Truitt ended the evening two of three at the plate with one run



Bears Bully Wolverines in

Early Season Match Up

Taking to the field for the first time this season the Crivitz Wolverines were brought down by the visiting Bonduel Bears 10-1 Friday evening.

The Wolverines were unable to hold the Bears off as the Bonduel girls bagged two runs in the first, three in the second, two in the third and another two during the top of the fourth for a 9-0 lead.

The lone Crivitz run came during the bottom of the inning. Talor Long clobbered a triple before crossing the plate.

One more Bear run in the seventh gave the game its final readout of 10-1.

Coleman Takes Narrow

Victory Over Wausaukee

The Coleman Cougars traveled to Wausaukee Tuesday night for their first conference match up of the season. After seven innings the Cougars left with a 1-0 conference record, thanks to a 2-0 verdict.

Coleman's pitching was spot on as Annabelle Kotecki piled up 10 strikeouts over the course of the game.

Coleman's first run of the evening came when Kyla Manning crossed the plate in the third inning. The second run of the night was rung in by Caitlin Klimek who was brought to the plate by Kotecki who hit a fly ball to center field for the RBI.

Kotecki took the mound win allowing only three hits in 25 at bats. She struck out 10.

Lexi Zak was saddled with the loss. She allowed three hits, two runs (one earned) while striking out three.



Huge Seventh Inning

Propels Cavs To Win

The St. Thomas Aquinas /Lena Cavaliers kept their heads in the game Tuesday night and were rewarded with a late game lead which they held on to for the 8-4 win.

"Thats the first time we have beaten Crivitz in many years," said STAA/Lena Head Coach Cindy Powers. "To start the conference schedule like that is great. I told the girls that every game this year is going to be a dogfight. I think this may be one of the most competitive years in this conference. Anyone can beat anyone on any day."

During the top of the first inning Marley Carivou reached base on a single, stole second and scored along with Millie Benson to give the Cavs an early 2-0 lead.

The Wolverines quickly answered with two first inning runs of their own. The first from Laken Ducaine who walked to get on base and another by Hanna Christensen.

Crivitz improved that lead in the second thanks to a run from Kieren Gribben.

Carviou tied things up during the fifth thanks to an error.

The final two inning were all Cavs as the girls in green and gold started swinging for the fences. Ally Demmith got things rolling with a single and was followed by Jayzman Thomas who walked. Both scored to give the Cavs a 5-3 lead.

The final inning saw the STAA girls punch the ticket on three more scores with a run being rung in by Carviou, Millie Benson and Demmitth.

"I told the girls don't you quit," said Powers. "We have to play seven innings. They really came through in the end of this one. They started to pick up the pitch in a clutch moment. We all have fun here. We smile a lot because we all get along, If you can't have fun, why even play? This is a great group of girls."

Carviou came away with nine strikeouts in the mound win. She allowed five hits and four runs while walking six.

Christensen was slapped with the loss allowing eight runs (five earned) on four hits while walking six. She struck out nine on the night.

Demmith posted a two of three showing at the plate while crossing the plate twice and crushing two RBIs.

Talor Long slugged her way to three RBIs on the night in her two for three plate showing.

"We had too many unforced errors," said Crivitz Head Coach Arlin Grandaw. "We gave them extra out in the innings and you just can't do that. We are a bit young here so its really just about learning. We haven't had much time outside yet so we are learning on the fly. We just have to get better defensively. Our bats will get there and we do have some excellent hitters here. We just need to improve a bit."



Bulldogs Baffle

Badgers in Opener

The Peshtigo Bulldogs began this season as they left off last season, with a conference win. Playing host to the Niagara Badgers Tuesday evening, the Bulldogs did their damage in the second and third innings, en route to a 10-0 victory.

Peshtigo's Lexy DeBriyan started off the bottom of the second inning with a base hit that got the Bulldog offense clicking. Emma Frederickson and Madi Martin followed with walks to load the bases. A fielder's choice off the bat of Megan Behnke brought DeBriyan home, Jenna Thill's walk plated Frederickson and an error allowed Shae Tonn to reach base and score two more for a four-run second inning.

The third inning proved to be even better for the Bulldogs. Peshtigo scored six runs on one hit, one walk, and three hit-by-pitches. The six runs put the score at 10-0 in favor of Peshtigo, eventually going on to be the final.

Shae Tonn earned the win for Peshtigo with five innings pitched, allowing just two hits and three walks while striking out nine batters. For the Badgers, Jayden Payette allowed 10 runs, five of which were earned, on 10 hits, six walks and two strikeouts.

Lexy DeBriyan and Megan Behnke each recorded two hits for Peshtigo and Madi Martin added another. Niagaras' Taylor Tushoski earned both hits for the Badgers on a 2-for-2 day.



Cougars

Demolish Patriots

Friday night the Coleman Cougars played host to the Goodman-Pembine Patriots for an exhibition game.  Coleman welcomed their guests with two ten-plus run innings on their way to a statement win, 34-2.

The Cougars put up 18 first-inning runs and followed up with 11 more runs in the fourth inning.  With everything working for them, Coleman posted 30 hits in the contest while not committing an error defensively.

Miranda Rost, Adelyn Salewski and Caitlyn Huberty all recorded five hits in the contest for the Cougars.  Rost also pitched four innings in the contest.



Cougars, Panthers

Split Double Header

On a beautiful day Saturday afternoon, the Coleman Cougars took advantage of the sunshine by welcoming the Oconto Falls Panthers to town for a double header.  Game number one seemed to be decided mostly by one inning, a six-run fifth inning by the Panthers to open a 12-4 lead.  Oconto Falls added an insurance run in the sixth, and went on to win game one 13-4.  In game two, the Cougars scored at least two in every-other inning, on their way to eight runs, helping them to an 8-6 victory.

Annabelle Kotecki took the game one loss for the Cougars pitching a complete game, allowing 17 hits, 13 runs, six earned, five walks and five strikeouts.  Josie Tolzman earned the victory for Oconto Falls with four innings pitched, giving up three earned runs, four total runs, on nine hits, three walks and three strikeouts. 

For Coleman, Kotecki and Kyla Manning each hit triples in the contest, while Beth Gannigan laced a double.  Tolzman also hit a triple for the Panthers and Sadie Pankratz earned a double in the game.

In game two, Kailey Klimek earned the win for Coleman with four innings pitched, giving up five runs, just one earned, on seven hits, three walks and a "K". 

Leading hitters for Coleman include Mariana Meissner and Kyla Manning each with a double, and Manning included three RBIs in the game.  Oconto Falls' Katelyn Aibrecht and Pankratz each recorded doubles of their own in the game.



NEC Softball



Marinette Earns Big

Early Win Over Oconto

Saturday afternoon two of the area's best softball teams went head to head as the Oconto Blue Devils traveled to Marinette to take on the Marines.  Big plays at crucial moments helped the Marines edge the Blue Devils, 3-2.  The victory is one that Marinette coach Corry Lambie knows is a big win under his squad's belt, "This was a nice win for us against a high-quality program.  For both teams to compete at that level this early in the season was fun to watch.  This was a very well-played game from which both teams can build some confidence as we move forward."

Oconto wasted little time in scoring the contest's first run.  Leadoff hitter Jasey Jicha doubled to start the game and Ellen Schrweide's sacrifice bunt moved her to third.  After the out was recorded at first, a throwing error to third base allowed Jicha to touch home plate and give the Blue Devils the 1-0 lead.

It didn't take long for Marinette to knot the score at 1-1 as Hannah Bearson led off the bottom of the first inning with a base hit.  After stealing second base, Bearson found her way home thanks to a throwing error to third base. 

In the bottom of the third, the Marines took the lead as Jordan Miller walked, and Chloe Lambie and McKenzie Bebo laced back-to-back singles to score Miller and take a 2-1 lead.

The Blue Devils looked to tie the game in the top of the fourth.  Becky Berth singled, advanced to second on a wild pitch and made her way to third base on a sacrifice by Emma Hipke.  With one out, Oconto attempted a suicide squeeze with Hannah Wusterbarth laying down what looking to be a well-placed bunt.  However, speedy Marinette pitcher Chloe Lambie darted off the mound, made a sweeping tag on Berth before she made it to home plate for the out.  Marinette maintained their 2-1 lead.

Oconto was able to score in the top of the fifth inning and tie the game at 2-2.  Amanda Schultz walked, stole second, and scored off Jicha's triple.  The tie didn't last long as in the next half inning, Lambie helped her own cause with a one-out single.  After swiping second base, Bebo delivered the go-ahead, and eventually game-winning, run in Lambie, and Marinette went up 3-2.

Lambie retired nine of the final ten batters she faced to secure the Marinette win, 3-2. The junior pitched a complete game giving up just four hits, two runs, one of which was earned, while collecting seven strikeouts.

Oconto's Becky Berth took the hard-fought loss with seven innings pitched, seven hits, three runs, two earned, and six strikeouts.

The dynamic junior duo of Lambie and Bebo went two of three each from the plate for Marinette, including two RBIs for Bebo.  Oconto's Jasey Jicha went two of three with a double, a triple, and an RBI.
