Marines Hold on for Tight Win in Peshtigo

Issue Date: November 29, 2017

Tipping off the 2017-18 season, the Marinette Marines traveled to Peshtigo to battle the Bulldogs in a non-conference matchup. Last season, the squads fought to a 3-point victory by the Marines, and this season's contest would not disappoint either. Marinette held a 5-point advantage in the first half before Peshtigo cut the halftime lead to 25-23. The Marines then held a 7 to 9-point lead throughout much of the second half, but the Bulldogs made it close at the end.

Peshtigo broke a 2-2 tie with a 6-0 run as Cameron Noffke connected on two free throws and a long jumper and Mitchell VanVooren added a layup. Marinette answered back with a 9-0 to regain the lead. Tyler Fayta put in a rebound and layup, Matt Wagner hit home a three, Jordan Wendt added a rebound and put-back and two free throws from Jeremy Wendt added to the Marinette lead.

The Marines extended their lead to six points as Jake Poetzl absorbed contact and made the layup, drawing an and-1. After the free throw was made, the lead was 20-14. Marinette maintained the lead to 23-18, before Peshtigo narrowed the gap. VanVooren pulled down a rebound and cashed in underneath, but Poetzl answered with two free throws. With just over 10 seconds remaining in the half, Peshtigo's Trent Carriveau connected on their only three-pointer of the half, cutting the score to 25-23, Marinette, at halftime.

"If we make our free throws and we make a couple of those bunnies that we almost always make, we walk away with a "W' today. But, that's the way it goes sometimes and we'll just use that as a learning lesson and grow from it," said Peshtigo Coach Nate Motkowski of the halftime deficit.

Coming out of the halftime break, Wagner ignited his Marines with a three. Noffke answered with two baskets of his own for the Bulldogs, but two free throws from Poetzl and a rebound put-back by Wagner gave them a 34-27 lead. Marinette hung onto the 7-point lead throughout much of the half, extending it to 9 points from time to time. Peshtigo, however, would not go away. With under seven minutes to play, Peshtigo went on a 10-1 run, knotting the game at 52-52 with 3:15 remaining. A layup and a triple from Carriveau cut the lead to just two and Max Neumann's rebound put-back tied the game up. Wagner answered the run, regaining the lead for Marinette, with a short jumper. Peshtigo had a chance to tie it again with two shots at the line but came up empty. Senior forward Walker Stroming put in a layup for the Marines, extending the lead to 56-52.

"The layup that [Walker] Stroming made, I hate to say it, but we didn't want it. We wanted to hold onto that ball and go to the line with one of our shooters. But, it ended up working out for us," said Marinette coach Nick Semenas laughingly.

Noffke cut the lead in half with a layup, with just over a minute to play. The experience of the Marines shined through as they connected on 5 of 6 free throws to end the game, four of which were from Wagner. A VanVooren triple at the end made the game interesting, bringing it to a 59-57 Marinette lead, but Wagner put the game away with two more free throws. Marinette took the opener 61-57.

"We have all the confidence in the world that any one of our guys can step in there and knock down their free throws. Actually, yesterday we worked on these exact situations for most of practice," said coach Semenas.

Wagner led the Marines with 15 points, Poetzl and Jordan Wendt each added 11, while Jeremy Wendt finished with 8 points and 8 rebounds. VanVooren was the high-point man for Peshtigo with 15 to go along with 9 rebounds, Carriveau added 13 points and Noffke finished with 12. The free throw battled went in Marinette's favor as they finished 19 of 27, while Peshtigo finished just 5 of 13.

"We just talked about it as coaches, we learned a lot tonight. We learned a lot about our guys, we learned a lot about ourselves." Coach Motkowski added of his team, "The biggest thing I was proud of was that our guys never turned away, they never hung their heads. They battled the entire game, they showed a ton of heart and more importantly they showed a ton of class."
