M&O Softball

The rivalry of county B played out on Thursday night as the Peshtigo Bulldogs traveled to Coleman to take on the Cougars.  Both teams battled for six innings until the Bulldogs exploded for 11 seventh inning runs to seal the victory 13-1. 

Defense and pitching was the name of the game for the first four innings.  Finally, in the fifth, Peshtigo put the game's first run up on the board.  Megan Behnke began the inning with a base hit.  Jenna Thill's sacrifice moved Behnke to second base and leadoff hitter Shae Tonn's single gave the Bulldogs the 1-0 lead.

Coleman wasted no time in answering the run as the plated their first run in the bottom half of the fifth. Annabelle Kotecki reached via an error to start the inning.  Ashlee Mayer followed up with a single to right center field and Lauren Osterberg drew a walk to load the bases.  After a strikeout, Kyla Manning hit into a putout but it was enough to score Kotecki and tie the game at 1-1. 

Peshtigo regained the lead in the top of the sixth.  Emma Frederickson led off with a single and Madi Martin's sac bunt moved her to second.  Ashley Dudka reached on an error which was enough to score Frederickson and put the Bulldogs back ahead, 2-1.

After a scoreless bottom of the sixth, the Bulldog bats were back at it and this time they meant it.  Peshtigo put up 11 runs on ten hits and a walk to seal the victory, 13-1.  Shae Tonn earned the victory in the circle for Peshtigo with a complete game, allowing one run on just three hits and a walk while fanning seven batters.  Annabelle Kotecki suffered the loss for Coleman with seven innings pitched, 13 runs given up on 16 hits, and struck out seven.

Peshtigo's Abbie Lindbom and Lexy DeBriyn each recorded three hits in the contest with Lindbom also adding two RBI.  Coleman was led by Ashlee Mayer who was 3-for-3 in the game.



Cavaliers Crush

Hornets

Lena/STAA played host to Elcho Friday night in a non-conference softball matchup.  The Cavaliers' were on the offensive attack as they put up four runs in each of the first and second innings, followed by six more runs in the third inning, en route to a 15-1 victory in five innings.

Ally Demmith led the way for the Cavs with a 4-for-4 day including a triple.  Lillian Sellen was also perfect at the plate, posting a 3-for-3 evening.  For Elcho, Hope Wheeler, Katelyn Slowik, Makayla Siebers and Brenna DeNamur were each 1-for-2.

Marley Carviou earned the win for the Cavs pitching all five innings, giving up just one run on five hits and seven strikeouts.  Elcho's DeNamur took the loss in the circle.



Crivitz Falls In

Five To Wausaukee


The Wausaukee Rangers invaded the home field of the Crivitz Wolverines Friday evening, coming away with a heavy hitting 10-0 win.

The Rangers took the initiative early with Maddison Renikow leading off with a single. She was followed by Sammy Gruszynski who reached off an error and Torri Jewett who was hit by a pitch. All three scored to give the Rangers an early 3-0 lead.

During the second inning the Wausaukee bats only heated up more. Kaila Backhaus slammed a double to lead off followed by Sirina Tyler on a single. Renikow hit another single along with Jewett who hit a single. Again every Ranger that hit scored to give the Rangers a 6-0 lead.

The Wolverine hitter struggled to get past the accurate pitching of Lexi Zak who began to pile up a few "K's".

Gruszynski added another run during the fourth while Renikow and Backhaus gave the Rangers all they need during the fifth to end the game early.

Zak was the night's winning pitcher with seven strikeouts in 20 at bats. She allowed three hits and no runs.

Sara Bublitz was took the loss giving up 10 hits, 10 runs (three earned) and two walks. She struck out two.

At the plate Renikow led the way with a three of four showing. She had three runs and an RBI. Jewett was two of three with two runs and two RBIs while Zak posted a two of three plate appearance with one RBI.

Talor Long led the Wolverines going two for two at the plate.



Three Innings Was

All Crivitz Needed


The Crivitz Wolverines shellacked Menominee Indian Saturday afternoon 19-2 in three innings.

After suffering a crushing defeat at the hands of Wausaukee the Wolverine girls must have found new energy because they were nearly unstoppable at the plate.

Laken Ducaine led off the first for the Crivitz girls with a single followed by Emily Bublitz who walked. Talor Long reached on a single. Jaz Zack clubbed an RBI followed by Sarah Bublitz on a two RBI single for the 4-0 lead.

The second saw a slew of Wolverine runs cross the plate. After Sienna Guns, Ducaine and Saige Nelson all reached base Emily Bublitz smashed a 3 RBI double to further the Wolverine lead to 7-0 lead. Bublitz crossed next thanks to a Long RBI single while Sarah Bublitz brought home Long and Zack off a two RBI double. The runs connoted to pile up in the inning that seemed to never end. By the time Menominee Indian was able to get out of the inning the Wolverines had piled up 19 runs.

Menominee Indian put in two runs of their own in the seance as A. Pecore and M. Hernandes crossed the plate for two.

At the plate Sarah Bublitz was three of four with two runs and four RBIs. Kieran Gribben was two of three with two runs and three RBIs. Zack was two of four with three runs and three RBIs while Emily Bublitz registered one hit in one at bat with two runs and three RBIs.



Coleman Defeats

Stephenson in

Double Header Action


The Coleman Cougars played host to the Stephenson Eagles Saturday afternoon for a double header that saw the home field Cougars post two wins. The first was a crushing 24-1 victory, while the second went Coleman's way 8-2.

In game one the Cougars wasted no time in establishing diamond dominance.

Kyla Manning opened things up by reaching base. She latered scored for the 1-0 lead.

Kotecki kept the Stephenson hitters at bay, helping to propel the Cougars through two, 1-2-3 innings.

During the third the Cougars added on three more scores. One from Manning, another from Caitlin Huberty and another from Mariana Meissner for a 4-0 lead.

Seven more scores were added by the Cougars over the fourth.

The Eagles posted one run over the fifth and another in the seventh.

Game two was more evenly matched game. Kailey Klimek opened the games scoring after reaching due to being hit by a pitch. She later scored for the 1-0 lead. Manning, Klimek and Annabelle Kotecki all posted runs over the third for a 4-0 lead.

Coleman's Klimek added another run in the fifth while batting in another in the sixth.That final inning saw Kotecki cross the plate along with Manning and Huberty.

Maroons Slam

Door on Rangers


Tuesday evening, the Menominee Maroons played host to the Wausaukee Rangers in a non-conference softball showdown. Wausaukee started the game out well by grabbing a 5-1 lead, but the Maroons charged back and a grand slam in the bottom of the fifth secured the Menominee win, 9-7.

Wausaukee's Carley Smith blasted a solo home run in the top of the fourth inning to extend the Rangers' lead to 5-1. A four-run lead by a tenured team over a brand-new program would have been thought to be enough. Not so, as Menominee quickly erased that lead, and in a big way. A three-run fourth inning, highlighted by a two-run double from Bri Burnette, cut the lead to just 5-4.

The Rangers added to their lead in the fifth with two runs. Alexis Ranallo recorded a single and later in the inning scored on a wild pitch. Wausaukee's Smith had an RBI single in the inning to put the lead at 7-4.

It was the bottom of the fifth that the Maroons did their damage in a big way. Izzy Berger drew a bases loaded walk to bring in the first run before Burnette drilled a grand slam to complete the five-run inning and give Menominee their first lead of the game, 9-7.

Menominee's Jen Woods shut down the Rangers' offense in the sixth and seventh to secure the complete game win. Woods gave up seven runs (five earned) on eight hits, one walk and six "K's" in the win. Wausaukee's Lexi Zak suffered the loss; in six innings of work, she allowed nine runs (six earned) on seven hits, six walks and six strikeouts.

Bri Burnette led the Maroons' offense with a 2-for-3 day including a double and a grand slam leading to six RBI. Morgan Roman also recorded two hits for the Maroons on a 2-for-4 day. Carley Smith paced the Rangers with a homer and a 2-for-3 day, while Torri Jewett was 2-for-4.



Ten-Run Third Lifts

Hornets Over Tigers


A non-conference matchup took place as the Gillett/Suring Hornets hosted the Tigerton Tigers Tuesday night. After the Tigers tied the game at 4-4 in the top of the third inning, the Hornets answered back with ten runs in the third to break the game open. Gillett/Suring scored one run in the fifth to implement the run rule, 16-6 in five innings.

Willow Pecha earned the mound win for Gillett/Suring, in two innings of work giving up just two runs (one earned) on three hits, three walks and three strikeouts. The offense was led by Willow Pecha with a 4-for-4 day including two RBI and two runs scored. Taylor Yonker, Faith Sorlie and Sarah Nauke each recorded three hits in the 19-hit barrage by the Hornets.



Big Hits Propel

Cougars to Win


The Coleman Cougar girls can hit. There no doubt about that after their 11-3 win over the STAA/Lena Cavaliers Monday night.

There were two legitimate home runs, One from Mariana Meissner, an in the parker, and one from Annabelle Kotecki which sailed over the right field fence, and one that should have been. After the ump declared that Kyla Manning had not touched home plate she was awarded triple for her hit over the center field fence.

"We have been really work hard on our hitting," said Head Coach Jean LaVash. "Now it's just a matter of building confidence in the kids swings. If we can nail that down I think we will do some great things. We also need to improve just a bit more with our base running"

Meissner also tagged on a triple along with two RBIs to cap off a fantastic day at the plate.

Kotecki took the pitching win for the Cougars, striking out eight while allowing three hits, three runs (1 earned) and one walk.

"This is just such a great group of kids," said LaVash. "They enjoy the game so much and it's so fun to be around them."



Gillett/Suring Secures

Win in Battle of the Bees


The Gillett/Suring Hornets came away with a four run win over the visiting Elcho/White Lake Hornets 13-9.

G/S took the early lead, scoring two runs in the bottom of the second. They were answered by four E/WL runs in the top of the third.

G/S made it a tie game during the fourth and kept the lead over the fifth 9-7.

Four runs by G/S in the sixth would be enough to survive E/WL two run seventh.

G/S's Sydney Young came away with a pitching win. She allowed 10 hits, nine runs (six earned)and three walks while striking out six.

At the plate Taylor Yonker was three of four with three runs five RBIs. Greta Sleeter went three for three with one run and five RBIs. Willow Pecha was one of five with three RBIs.



Badgers Win Battle

with Hornets


In a matchup of two M&O teams, the Niagara Badgers hosted the Gillett/Suring Hornets Thursday evening.  Thanks to two runs in the second and three in the third inning, the Badgers went on to win the contest 5-1.

Superb pitching from Jayden Payette and solid defense by the Badgers held the Hornets to just one run.  Payette scattered seven hits, four walks, and five strikeouts across seven innings pitched to allow just one run.  Sarah Nawn led the Badgers offense with a 2-for-3 day including an RBI.

Syndey Young was saddled with the loss for the Hornets with six innings of work, giving up five runs (only one earned), on five hits and two walks while piling up ten strikeouts. Faith Sorlie went 2-for-4 on the day to lead the offense.
