Area Teams See Full Slate of Non-Conference Action

Issue Date: January 3, 2018

Crivitz Comes Out On Top Against Bonduel

Facing a tough and experienced crew of Bonduel Bears, Crivitz Coach Jeff Baumann had his hands full outmatching the tough visiting crew. After two halves the Wolverines were victorious thanks to a 77-70 differential.

"We came out shooting the ball very well for once," said Crivitz Head Coach Jeff Baumann. "Its nice to come out and have your first three possessions turn into three point plays. We worked hard on our transition game tonight and moved the ball up the court very well. They had a lot of difficulty slowing us down tonight."

He wasn't kidding about Bonduel being unable to slow them down, just take a look at the score sheets, all five Crivitz starters made it to double digits with Travis Giese and Jakob Voss leading the way with 16 points each. The high scoring duo also combined for 20 first half points, nearly half the first half readout.

If it were not for the efforts of Bonduels keen shooter Parker Bohm, things might have gotten out of hand for the Bears. Bohm fired in six first half points before going on fire in the second for 17 points.

"He shot the ball well," said Baumann. Aloty of his shots were right over the top of a lot of our boys."

Also doing his part was Shane Bauer who piled up 15 points for his Wolverines along with Jaden Werner who found his way into the lane for 13 points.

"Jayden Werner has really been playing some excellent basketball this year," said Baumann. This is the first time all year that our first five guys played well as they did as a group."

Crivitz held the edge at halftime 39-36 and continued to hold that edge over the second. Baumann took time to talk about his halftime speech. "It was the mellowest halftime speech I think Ive ever given. I just told them I thought they did a great job over the first half and I thought we did a great job getting into defenses. I did say that our fundamentals weren't spectacular. Bad footwork and too much fouling."

Bohm was the evenings top performer with 23 points while teammate Dalton Cairns got 15 along with Cole Letter who also posted 15.

Joining the Crivitz guys on that double digit list was Charlie Johnsen who piled in 12 points.



Green Knights poke Holes in Cavaliers

The St.Thomas Aquinas Cavaliers hand their hands full Saturday evening when they took on the Phelps Green Knights whop bagged the win 72-50.

Of the the Cavalier starters three amassed double digit points. Tyler Stuart topped all scorers with 23 points. Jack Farley followed him up with 12 while Alex Powers tagged on 10.

Phelps also had a good scoring push from multiple players. Nolan Rosner led the way with 16 while Andrew Gill chipped in 13. Charles Gutierrez added on 11 points.



Coleman Slams Reedsville

Reedsville traveled to Coleman Friday night and discovered they were no match for the high powered Coleman scoring attack, which led the Cougars to a 74-66 win.

Out of the gates Coleman quickly built a lead as they entered the half ahead 32-20. But most of the action occurred in the second half where the two teams battled it out for a 42-46 differential with Reedsville holding the edge. But that excellent start proved to be the difference as the Cougars went on to claim the win.

Leading the Cougars was Austin Marquardt who gave his team 24 points. Cayden Bintz followed up with 22 points while Cole Woulf chipped in 12 to the effort.

Dawson Farmer led all scorers with 25 points for Reedsville. Teammate Braden Dvorachek got 14 while Brevin Werndland chipped in 11.



Niagara Annihilates Tigerton

The Niagara Badger boys had no troubles taking down the visiting Tigertons guys as they blasted their way to a 73-54 victory.

The first half saw Alex Hagerty fire in plenty of points. He added up 15 first half points.

Tigerton kept pace with 28 first half points but were comeplty overhemplmed in the second by a 41-26 scoring differnetial.

Niagara was led by Alex Hagerty with 26 points and Austin Hagerty with 25 points.

"The game was very close until we went to some full court man pressure," said Niagara Head coach Jim Hoogland. "That sped up the game and our guys atheltic ability really shone through. Tigerton wanted to play at a much slower pace and we decided we wouldn't let that happen."

Tigerton was led by B. Michaellis with 26 points and C. Horns with 12.

Lena Falls in Holiday Tourney

The Lena Wildcats held their annual Holiday tournament and were met with some tough competition as they fell to Stockbridge Oshkosh Valley Christian and Sevastopol.

During day one of the tournament Lena took on Sevastopol who they fell to behind a massive 91-50 differential.

Much of the reason why Lena fell so hard was two of Sevastopol scorers who were near unstoppable. Robby Pollman of the Pioneers piled up 28 points while teammate Nelson Demmin added on 25 points.

Lena Struggled to get the wheels turning at ethe speed they required but still Chantz Rowell find some schuss as he finished the game with 24 points. He was followed by Levi Potter with 11 and Colby Borchert with nine.

Against Stockebridge the Wildcats were unable to hold off a 76 point attack that led the Stockbridge boys to the 76-49 victory.

Stockbridge took the initiative with 42 points over the first half while Lena struggled to keep pace with 31 points.

Stockbridge's Chris Langtean put up 18 points for the games top scoring spot. He was followed by teammate Gage Giombetti with 14 and Noah Hermann with 11.

Lena's Colby Borchert led the way for the Wildcats with 17 points. Levi Potter and Chantz Rowell both chipped in 8 points apiece.



Farley Leads STAA Past Goodman-Pembine

St. Thomas Aquinas Academy edged Goodman-Pembine 77-69 at home on Tuesday behind 37 points from Jack Farley.

Farley made all 11 of his free throws and hit two threes en route to his game-high output, while Tyler Stuart added 18 and Christian Hornick had 16.

Hagan Braaten led Goodman-Pembine with 23 points, while Wyatt Marcy and Evan Metras each added double-figure outputs with 19 and 10 respectively.

Goodman-Pembine had an early lead, but STAA took a 38-36 advantage to the break before capitalizing on some mistakes and building a lead.

Goodman-Pembine Coach John Swick said the team was done in by turnovers.

"Our 19 turnovers kept us from building a lead in the first half and got us in a deep hole early in the second half," Swick said.

Despite the loss, it wasn't all bad news with the team's output down the stretch. "I was proud of the way the guys fought back and closed to within three late in the game," Swick said. "We missed some shots late and didn't play very good help-side defense down the stretch and that cost us in the end."



Bulldogs Build Early Lead Coast Home Against Maroons

The Peshtigo boys fended off a tough Menominee defense which gave them a lot of different looks in order to get the 64-32 win Tuesday night.

The Maroons used primarily a zone defense throughout the game, but switched things up in the second half.

"When they stuck to their zone like they kind of figured they would, we focused on trying to get the ball inside a lot more, so we focused on getting it into the paint and moving it around," Peshtigo Coach Nate Motkowski said. "Hats off to Menominee. In the second half they were trying different things, giving us different looks. They caught us a couple times but I thought our guys did a really nice job of noticing it, responding to it and making the right decisions."

The Bulldogs shot 50 percent from the field, with Mitchell VanVooren leading the way, as the forward shot 8-16 for 16 points. Senior Max Neumann got an efficient 10 as well, shooting 3-4 overall and 2-3 from downtown.

Menominee struggled to get efficient points, shooting 18 fewer times than the Bulldogs, going 12-37 for a 32 percent rate.

"As a team before the game we talked a little bit more about being in the right position, communicating more on defense and our guys responded well," Motkowski said.

Tyler Kuester was Menominee's leading scorer, with 13 points on 5-9 shooting, while also making 3-5 from beyond the arc. Aaron Drifka was the only other Maroon to shoot over 50 percent, making 2-3 for five points.

10 Bulldogs scored in the contest, and Motkowski said the team is growing every game.

"I think with each game they get a little bit more experience and they're starting to buy into what we want them to do more of, moving the ball offensively and getting the right look instead of the quickest look or the quickest shot," he said.

Trent Carriveau got nine points for Peshtigo, Darren Dionne had six and Cameron Noffke had five.

Keagan Monroe was Menominee's second-leading scorer with six points. Kyle Anderson had five on 1-7 shooting.

Peshtigo won the JV game 63-30.



Bulldogs Down Wolverines In Sun Drop Shootout

At the Kress Center Friday, Dec. 29, Peshtigo defeated Crivitz 54-43 behind 15 points and 11 rebounds from Max Neumann and 12 points from Mitchell VanVooren.

They both shot 5-8 from the field, with VanVooren making 2-4 from three and Neumann going 5-6 at the free throw line.

"We played hard all game," said Crivitz Head Coach Jeff Baumann." Unfoutnrlay for us Max Neumann hit some important shots at the end for them that kind of sealed the deal. Two nice spin moves in the lane. But it was back and forth all game. We had the lead for a portion of the second. It was a four point game with three minutes left. They were on the line with a one and one and we didn't get the rebound, they kicked it back out , hit the shot and then we started to slip, missing a conversion. We just didn't shoot well enough in the paint or out of it. We shot 28%, that isn't going to win many games."

Reid Marquardt put in nine on 3-5 shooting and Cameron Noffke went 2-8 with eight points.

"We did not play well in the first half," Peshtigo Coach Nate Motkowski said. "We were sloppy, too many turnovers and bad decisions."

He added that the team played better in the second half. "We played better down the stretch," he said. "We took care of the ball and made our free throws to seal the win."

Charlie Johnson and Jakob Voss each put in 12 for Crivitz, with Jaden Werner getting seven.

"Though defensively we played well, Peshtigo's size was a bit of a hurdle to overcome. They just out rebounded us, 36-28. They had ten point on offensive cutbacks. It was a great game they I though our guys did well minus Peshtigo's size advantage."

Peshtigo won the JV game 54-32, with Damon Jones getting 17 points and Darren Dionne having 13. Eian Baumann led Crivitz with nine.

Baumann took a moment to talk about the experience of playing at the Kress Center.

"The guys enjoyed it a lot, first time we have been there. Getting to play on a big court like that was just great, we would defeinlty go back given the chance."



Menominee Falls To Gladstone

The Menominee Maroons led the Gladstone Braves early on Thursday, Dec. 28, but the Braves were able to go on a big run and get the 64-31 win.

Menominee was up 11-9 after the first quarter, but the second quarter was not pleasant for the traveling Maroons as they were bested 26-9 in the period.

The second half wasn't any better for Menominee, as they were outscored 29-12 over the course of the final two quarters.

Menominee's leading scorer was Keagan Monroe, who had nine points. Tyler Kuester had eight and Nicholas Snyder put up seven.

Gladstone got a game-high 24 points from Brad Spinder, with nine Braves scoring in the ball game.

Marinette Falls Hard

To Mt. Horeb in Sundrop

Temperatures outside were just above freezing Thursday afternoon, but the Mt. Horeb Vikings came out shooting red-hot to defeat Marinette 79-44 at the Kress Center in Green Bay.

The Vikings (5-1 overall, 3-0 conference) made 11 three-pointers en route to the big Sun Drop Shootout win, showing why they're widely regarded as one of the top teams in the Badger North Conference and all of Division II.

"We know they're one of the top 10 or 15 best teams in Division II," Marinette Coach Nick Semenas said, saying the Marines (7-2 overall, 3-1 conference) will need to use the game to evaluate themselves.

"We're hopefully going to use this as a measuring stick," Semenas said. "We're in Division II. We need to use that as a barometer of where we're going to take ourselves in the future. Our guys have two choices. Are we going to use it to get better or are we going to feel sorry for ourselves and keep going as we've went?"

12 different players scored for Mt. Horeb, with Gunnar Nortman dropping in 18 to lead the way.

"We had no answer for them. We threw three different defenses at them and they eviscerated all of them," Semenas said. "That's a credit to them. Kids 1 to 15, you can see them busting their tail every day and they deserve everything that they have and everything that they've won this year."

Bryce Farnsworth was the only other Viking in double figures, as he scored 11, including two triples in the first half to help open up a 43-31 lead at the half. Tyler Crubaugh and Charlie Fish were the two next-highest scorers in red and white, as they had nine and eight, respectively.

Marinette's leading scorer was Jake Poetzl, though he battled foul trouble the whole game, picking up his fourth foul with 12:29 left in the game and the Marines trailing 55-33. He finished the game with 14 points, while Jordan Wendt had 12 and Walker Stroming had six.

"I think they're at a higher level than we are as a team," Semenas said. "I thought in the first half, offensively we played well. We shot a better field goal percentage than them in the first half."

Semenas said it was good for the Marines to play a team like the Vikings who capitalize on their opponents' mistakes.

"The great thing about playing a team like Mt. Horeb is that if you make mistakes, you pay for it every time. That's why today is a good day for us as a team, I think."

Marinette's next game is Thursday, Dec. 4 against Luxeburg-Casco, as they'll look to bounce back against the 1-6 Spartans.

Oconto also took on Shiocton at the Sun Drop Shootout, defeating the Chiefs 62-51 behind 22 points from Carson Moe. Conner Ebben had 13 and Evan Allen was in double figures with 10.

Shiocton's leading scorer was Austin VanDenBosch, who had 13 points.
