Cavaliers Thankful to Enter Win Column

Issue Date: November 22, 2017

Cavaliers Claim First Victory; Defeat Patriots

Friday evening the St. Thomas Aquinas Academy Cavaliers played host to the Patriots of Goodman-Pembine in a non-conference contest.  A slow start for the Cavs was quickly erased, as they held a 24-16 advantage at halftime.  The Patriots tried to come back, but STAA held on for a 41-34 win. The victory marked their first since December of 2014, when they took down Oneida Nation.

Goodman-Pembine opened the game with a 4-0 run, but in stepped junior Alexa Pristelski for the Cavs. Pristelski went on her own 7-0 run, including connecting on a three-pointer. Millie Benson added a long jumper and the Cavs went ahead 9-4. Katelyn Morrison kept the Patriots close with two consecutive baskets, but Halle Beranek banked home a mid-range jumper and Pristelski made good of a steal with a layup. Pristelski then connected on a three-pointer and the Patriots threw the ball out of bounds on the in-bound. Wasting no time, the Cavs threw the ball to the hot-hand, Pristelski, in the corner and she hit her second triple in a matter of 10 seconds for a 19-10 Cav lead. Heather Geib and Morrison each scored two points to bring the Patriots back to within 22-16, but Beranek sank a short jumper in the lane as the halftime buzzer sounded, giving the Cavs a 24-16 halftime lead.

Out of the break, it was more of the same for both teams as Pristelski and Benson led the way, while Morrison tried to keep the Patriots in the contest. STAA gathered three offensive rebounds on their opening possession, before Benson connected on a mid-range shot to go up 26-16.  Pristelski added a layup and another three, while Beranek and Livia Benson each connected on a basket for a 35-23 advantage. Morrison then went on a run of her own to single-handedly bring the Patriots within striking distance. She hit back-to-back shots before Pristelski cashed in on a three-pointer. Not done there, Morrison then hit a free throw, a layup and a long jumper, trimming the STAA lead to 38-32 with just over three minutes to play. A Patriot basket from Madison McLain shrunk the lead to 39-34, but that was as close as they would get. Beranek connected on a mid-range dagger, and STAA went on to win 41-34.

"The team played well, we're getting better every day. It was very nice to see, we've worked hard in the past couple of weeks and it was nice to come out here and get a victory. These girls have been working all summer, all year last year and I'm just really happy for those guys," said STAA coach David Corry.

Pristelski scored a game-high 20 points for the Cavaliers, Beranek added 11 and Millie Benson pitched in with eight. For the Patriots, Morrison finished with 15 points and Rachel Braaten added 10.

"We didn't score for the first four or five minutes in the first half and all of a sudden Alexa [Pristelski] took off and had several baskets. That got us started and then Millie [Benson] took over a bit and we had some key shots from Halle [Beranek] and Livia [Benson]. Livia was a beast underneath, I'm not sure how many rebounds she had but it had to be north of 15, it was a very impressive performance," coach Corry said of his team.



Bulldogs Belt First Packerland Win Over Blue Devils

This is the first season that the Peshtigo Bulldogs are a part of the Packerland Conference, after a long tenure in the M&O Conference.  Thursday night, they had their first chance to take on a Packerland opponent, as they traveled to Oconto to battle the Blue Devils. Both teams got off to slow starts offensively, fighting to a 15-15 deadlock at halftime.  Peshtigo found their stride in the second half, winning 49-32 to start 2-0 on the young season.

Oconto's Sydney Koch started the night's scoring with a triple, while Peshtigo's Hannah Swanson answered back with a three of her own.  The teams battled back and forth with neither team holding more than a 3-point lead in the first half. A basket from Emma Frederickson gave the Bulldogs a 6-5 lead and another long jumper from Swanson extended the lead to 8-5.  Four straight made free throws took the lead back for Oconto but Swanson dialed up another three. Oconto's Mara Allen knotted the game at 11-11 with a layup, but Madi Martin answered back with a layup of her own.  Allen added another basket down-low and Ellen Sohrweide gave Oconto a 15-13 lead.  With 9.8 seconds left before halftime, Martin earned a trip to the foul line and made both free throws, tying the game at 15-15, the score at the halftime break.

Peshtigo fixed several parts of their game at halftime, and it was all the difference they needed.  "I said there was five things at halftime we needed to change, and we changed all five of them.  We just got such great shots in the second half and had the right people shooting them. I thought we played great defense in the second half as well," said Bulldog coach Bruce Parkovich.

After the teams exchanged two points each, the Bulldogs found their offensive stride and never looked back.  A short jumper by Frederickson started a 14-0 run that changed the game.  An old fashioned three-point play by Frederickson, a layup by Shae Tonn and a long jumper from Swanson highlighted the run as Peshtigo went ahead 31-17.  Mercifully for Oconto, Koch drilled a three-pointer to end the run, but the damage was already done.  Back-to-back three pointers from Tonn, along with a layup each from Martin and Tonn extended the lead to 19-points.  Peshtigo went on to cruise to a 49-34 victory.

Swanson's big first half, coupled with Tonn's large second, helped the two to leading the Bulldogs' scoring with 12 points apiece. Martin was close behind with 10 points and Frederickson added nine.  Oconto's Koch and Allen each paced their team with 10 points. 

In their first contest, the 6'1" Allen had a big game, forcing the Bulldog defense to focus on the tall post player. "She had 20 points and 20 rebounds against Coleman, she's a handful.  Emma [Frederickson] did a great job on her, and she had some help, so it was just a great team effort in the second half.  Emma really had a good game," said Coach Parkovich.



Rangers Potent Offense Stings Hornets in Win

The Wausaukee Rangers traveled to Elcho Thursday to take on the Hornets in a non-conference season opener.  Wausaukee opened a 34-21 halftime lead, before filling the basket for 49 second-half points, and claiming an 80-44 victory.

Madelyn Schlies paced the Ranger offense with 22 points, Natalie Schoeder added 10, Stephanie Murray finished with eight and Maddison Renikow chipped in with seven.  Elcho's Jessica Slowik finished with a game-high 25 points while Katelyn Slowik ended with eight.



Crivitz Doubles Up Florence in Opener

Thursday evening the Crivitz Wolverines tipped off their 2017-18 campaign as they traveled to take on the Florence Bobcats in a non-conference matchup.  Behind the scoring of Sianna Guns and Chloe Gruszynski, the Wolverines cruised to a 61-30 victory.

Guns finished the contest with 18 points to lead all scorers, while Gruszynski added 13, and Emalee Johnsen finished with nine points for Crivitz.  Florence was led by Savannah Vassar with eight points and 10 rebounds, three teammates each finished with four.



Stingy Defense, Strong Second Half Leads Marinette Over GB East

The Marinette Marines took the court for the first time in the 2017-18 season Friday night, as they traveled to Green Bay East to battle the Red Devils.  Although the offense started slow for the Marines, their defense was in full force all game.  Marinette held a narrow 21-12 halftime lead, before dominating the second half to win 52-27.

Katelyn Kitzinger led all scorers, leading the Marines with 19 points, nine steals and three boards, Abby Wingender finished with 11 points and five rebounds while Maddie Schultz added six points, 10 boards and three steals.  GB East was led by Tyah Hohn with 10 points.



Badgers Take Down Patriots

The Goodman-Pembine Patriots played host to the Niagara Badgers Monday night. In a defensive battle, Niagara held a close edge at halftime, 15-9. The Badgers found their stride in the second half scoring 32 points, on their way to a 47-24 victory.

Niagara's Maddie West led the team with 14 points, Cassie Gill pitched in with 11 points, Jessica Oratch added eight and Ki'Eircidy Hannah chipped in six. Katelyn Morrison led the way for the Patriots with 10 points.



Tigers Clobber Indians at Home

Monday evening the Gillett Tigers played host to the Weyauwega-Fremont Indians in a non-conference matchup. Gillett made it look easy, holding the Indians to just 7 first-half points to hold a 34-7 halftime lead. From there, the Tigers cruised past Weyauwega-Fremont 66-18.

Kaitlyn Schaal paced the balanced Tiger attack with 12 points, Taylor Yonker and Kalea Britton each added 10, Karissa Schaal finished with nine and Aubrey DeBausch and Camryn Long each had eight. Taylor Folk led the Indians with 12 points and Rylee Bartel pitched in with four.
