Bulldogs Fall to Gibraltar; Wolverines Cage Tigers To Hold Lead

Issue Date: December 27, 2017

Peshtigo Falls to

Hot Shooting Gibraltar


The Peshtigo Bulldog girls were defeated by Gibraltar on Thursday, Dec. 21, as the visiting Vikings were boosted by junior Payton Pluff and her 22 points.

The game ended 59-51 after the Bulldogs entered halftime down 30-19, a deficit too great to overcome, despite a 32-point second half.

The Bulldogs were down as much as 16 at one point, but they cut the lead to six on back-to-back buckets from senior Shae Tonn with 2:32 left in the ball game, but Pluff extended the lead back to eight with 1:32 left on a mid-range jumper.

Peshtigo Coach Bruce thought his team would have had a shot if they would have gotten hot a little bit earlier in the game.

"We just couldn't get on a roll at all," Parkovich said. "I just thought if we could cut it under 10 a little sooner in the second half we could have made a run."

After Pluff's jumper and no bucket at the other end, it was up to the Bulldogs to begin fouling Gibraltar, but the Vikings were more than solid from the charity stripe, making all 10 of their free throws in the second half and shooting 20-24 overall. Parkovich was impressed with the Vikings' prowess at the line.

"That's pretty dang good free throw shooting," Parkovich said. "It seemed like they made those key free throws."

Another area of weakness in the game for Peshtigo was situational rebounding, especially with senior forward Emma Fredrickson fouling out.

"We were handicapped a little bit because Emma fouled out, so we didn't have a lot of size," Parkovich said. "There were two or three crucial times where they would miss a shot but we didn't get the rebound."

Hannah Swanson was the Bulldogs' leading scorer with 15 points, including 10 in the second half. Normally a reliable shooter from downtown, Swanson didn't make any shots from deep, which Parkovich attributed to the senior's lack of rest throughout the game.

"Hannah's normally a very good shooter but her shot was short a lot because she was tired. She had to play a lot of the game," Parkovich said.

Senior Madi Martin had 13 and Tonn got 11, while Parkovich also got some impact play from his bench, with Gabby Perry scoring five points and Sidney Gullicksen getting three on and and-one layup in the second half.

"Sidney got a nice drive, they fouled her and she made a free throw," Parkovich said. "It's nice to see. Sometimes when you're coming off the bench it's tough, but they contributed that way and they worked hard when they were in there."

Peshtigo's next game is against a tough opponent in Little Chute, but Parkovich thinks the Bulldogs will come prepared.

"We've just got to learn from it. We've got some tired girls right now but they'll come back to practice and work hard," he said.



Oneida

Defeats Coleman


The Oneida Nation Thunderhawks took a 57-51 win over the Coleman Cougars Thursday night.

Oneida's Yelih Rodriguez got 14 points while M'Kenzy Ackley posted 11. Sadie Schuman led the way with 17.

Cameron Come was the games top scorer with 22 points. Michaela Zeitler tacked on 12 while Kailey Klimek got six.



Suring Slips

By Gresham


The Suring Eagles took home a 40-31 Thursday night win over the visiting Gresham Tigers.

Suring's Kylee Stelzer was the evenings top scorer with 12 points and was followed by teammate Paige Krueger with 11.

Gresham was led by Makayla Belong with 10 points and MecKenzie Roe with five.



Crivitz Comes Out

on Top Over Gillett


The Crivitz Wolverines Took down the home court Gillett Tigers Friday night for a nice 61-59 holiday gift.

The Wolverines fought hard over the first for a 33-27 differential entering the locker room. Lexi Oyer had a superlative first half. She has been constantly improving her long ranger shot this season and this game marked a new first half high for the Wolverines as she fired in four behind the arc shots.

Chloe Gruszynski also piled on the points over the opening frame, putting in five of her eight free throws and a three pointer to boot.

Gillett's leading scorer Aubrey DeBauch kept the points coming over both halves to top the Tigers with 15 points. Kaitlyn Schaal and Karissa School both posted 12.

Oyer took top scoring honors for the Wolverines with 18 points off four three pointers, two of her three free throws and two in close buckets. Gruszynski posted 17 while Morgan VanLanen got seven.



Niagara

Stuns STAA


The Niagara Lady Badgers came away with a 46-36 win over the St. Thomas Aquinas Cavaliers Friday night in Niagara.

18 was kind of an important number in this match up. STAA scored 18 in both first and second halves while the Badgers finished the night with an 18 point second half. The difference came in the first half where The Badgers came away with a 28-18 lead going into the locker room.

STAA's Alexa Pristelski was a fireball on the court. She burned the Badgers for 22 points, enough for the game's top scoring honors. She sunk five three point buckets while hitting in close for three more buckets while going one for two at the free throw line. Halle Beranek posted seven while Millie Benson got three.

The Badgers were led by Jessica Oratch with 10 points, Jasmine Racine with nine and Maddie West with eight.



Wausaukee Survives

Battle With Lena


The Wausaukee Rangers took the show on their home court last Thursday evening when they defeated the visiting Lena Wildcats 40-36.

It was close from the start as Wausaukee held the narrow edge going into the intermission 23-21. But a 27-15 second half would prove to be enough to put the Rangers far enough head to take the win.

Maddy Herald was the games top scorer, giving lena 12 points. Katie Kramer posted seven while Alayna Peterson scored six.

Maddie Schlies led the way for the Rangers with 11 while Katelyn Schlies tallied eight. Natalie Schroeder got seven.



Marines Rally, Run

Away From Maroons


The Menominee Maroons girls basketball team was defeated by the Marinette Marines Friday, Dec. 22 after being outscored 13-5 in the fourth quarter.

Menominee jumped out to a 19-11 lead in the first quarter and held steady to take an eight-point lead into the half. Marinette was stout defensively in the third quarter, but it wasn't enough to close the gap, as Menominee ran away with it and finished the game 54-39.

Menominee's leading scorer was Emma Anderson, who finished with 19, while teammate Erin Barrette dumped in 15 more. Kendell Klatt had eight, Sarah Barrette had five and Arikah Bellisle had four. Brianne Burnett and Makenzie Wellner had two and one points, respectively.

Abby Wingender had 15 to lead the Marines. Katelyn Kitzinger and Mckenzie Bebo each scored eight and Madeline Schultz had six. Hannah Doubek scored three and Madylinn Sims got a bucket.
