Tigers Ambush Cavies for Win

The Gillett Tigers, after a knotted up first half came out of the locker room ready to win, as they defeated the visiting St. Thomas Aquinas Cavaliers 54-49.

The two aforementioned Tigers didn't let up over the second half as Krause added on 11 points and Frank another seven along with Cole Lang who picked up any slack over the second with eight points.

The Suring Eagles had their hands full against the home court Coleman Cougars

Monday evening, going the distance in overtime for the 44-41 win.

Coleman started strong in this contest as the guys in green found themselves ahead 24-18 over the first half. This was due to a balanced scoring attack that saw eight Cougars get into the mix.

Suring's Mitchell Stegeman carried the load of the scoring over the first half drilling a three to bring his opening frame toast to eight points.

That strong start by the Cougars faltered over the second half as the scoring began to slow down. Suring on the other hand began to pick up the pace as Ryan Mahoney fired in eight points along with Stegeman who drilled two more three pointers.

With the score knotted at 38-38 the teams entered overtime and it was the Eagles who proved to be the better team as Mahoney found his way to four points along with Cody Smith who added on two for that six point winning total. Coleman only managed to get three over the closing frame which were obtained off a Cole Woulf three point bucket.

Crivitz Obliterates Lena in Conference Clash

Last year the Crivitz versus Lena matchups were some of the biggest games of the year, this season"not so much. This was extremely apparent last Friday when Lena took the trip south to Crivitz for a rout the likes of which will not son be forgotten as the Wolverines took the resounding win 87-18.

The one sided contest was one sided from the get go. Crivitz quickly found themselves way ahead 47-8 after one half of play.

Charlie Johnsen was the game's top scorer with 19 points and was followed by Shane Bauer with 16. Travis Gives chipped in 15 to the effort.

Lena's top scorers were Colby Borchert and Sam Gard with four points each.



Phelps Runs Down Goodman-Pembine

The Goodman-Pembine boys were outmatched Friday evening by the Phelps Green Knights 76-43.

"From the opening tip we just had to work a lot harder for our points than Phelps," said Patriot Head Coach John Swick. "We never settled in and ran our offense and instead settled for low percentage shots. Turnovers were again a big factor and limited our possessions which makes it impossible to mount any kind of comeback. The boys really fought hard and some of our subs really gave us some quality minutes. Kaden Betka came in and did a great job on defense in the second half. "

Leading scorers for the Patriots were  Wyatt Marcy with 12 points and Evan Metras with 11 points. Hagan Braaten and Caleb Nelson each added 6 points apiece.



Eagles Drop Badgers Hard

The Suring Eagles showed just how sharp their talent can be last Friday when they cruised north to Niagara to defeat the badgers 63-30.

The double up surprise from the Eagles came off an unbelievable first half from Badger Ryan Mahoney. Mahoney found openings wherever he went and it showed as he left the court in the first half with 24 points. 15 points of which came from behind the arc. But Mahoney wasn't the only Eagle to find his wings over the first half. Caleb Lally added on 10 while Reece Garrigan chipped in eight.

Mahoney needed the evening as the game's top scorer with a whopping 32 points. He made seven three pointers along the way. Lally ended the game with 12 points while Garrigan finished with 10 points.

Niagara was led by Alex Hagerty who managed to fight out 12 points. Austin Hagerty followed with six points.



Coleman Posts Solid Win Over Wausaukee

The Coleman Cougar boys basketball squad looks to be finding a bit of a rhythm early in this season as they took down the home court Wausaukee Rangers 67-50 Friday night.

Coleman kept the Rangers at bay for the entire game as they held the lead exiting both frames. The first frame saw them ahead in the scoring 28-24 while the second saw the Cougars picked up the pace for a 39-26 second half differential.

Though many of Wausaukee's shooters had trouble finding success that didn't apply to Hayden Renikow and Matthew Delfosse who both had relatively successful evenings. Renikow plugged out 15 points while Delfosse led the way for the Rangers and topped all scorers with 17 points.

Coleman's Peyton Nelson led the way with 15 points while Cole Woulf chipped in 14. Cayden Bintz had 12 on the night.



Laona-Wabeno Beats Goodman-Pembine

The Goodman-Pembine Patriots had some troubles with the Loana-Wabeno Rebels Thursday night as the Rebels came away from Goodman with the 76-28 victory.

"A slow start with being a little impatient and turnovers got us behind early to start the game and then cold shooting never allowed us to get back into it," said Patriot Head Coach John Swick. "Playing Laona at their place is never an easy task and they seem to have restocked with a large junior class after graduating out a lot of talent from the past three years. I was very pleased to see our attitude in the locker room after the game was very business like. Everybody is ready to get back to work against a tough Phelps team tomorrow."

Leading scorers were Hagan Braaten with 12 points and Wyatt Marcy with 8 points.





Menominee Suffers Crushing Defeat

The Menominee Maroons started the season with a flop Monday evening, falling to the Antigo Red Robins 91-24.
