Bulldogs Hold Off Mustangs

Issue Date: January 3, 2018

After a 24-6 run by Little Chute to bring the game within a point, it was up to the Peshtigo Bulldogs to convert at the free throw line and ice the game.

In the final two minutes of regulation, that's just what they did, going 7-8 at the free throw line.

Peshtigo came out of the halftime break firing, leading 27-15, then went on a 7-0 run to start the second half. From there, Little Chute tightened things up, going on their big run and bringing the game to 40-39.

With 1:57 on the clock, senior Hannah Swanson stepped up to the line and knocked down both, with senior Emma Frederickson doing the same with 1:06 on the clock.

It wasn't over yet, however, as a layup by sophomore Katherine Joten brought Little Chute within three. Junior Sidney Gullicksen shot 3-4 at the line in the final minute to close things out, giving Peshtigo a 47-41 win.

Peshtigo Coach Bruce Parkovich credited the shooters the Bulldogs were able to send to the line, saying, "We had good people at the line and that's all we can ask for. We had some good girls that you want to have in there shooting the free throws."

He also acknowledged the play of the Mustangs in their second-half comeback, which included 10 points from Joten and eight from junior forward Hannah Vandenberg, who scored a game-high 20 points.

"I give them credit. They came back," Parkovich said. "What hurt us towards the end of the game were the threes that they made that got them back in the ball game."

All of Vandenberg's points came in the post, however, as she made 10 buckets, using her size to capitalize against a shorter Bulldogs squad.

"We struggle against big girls and she's a good ball player, but we tried to make her earn every basket she got," Parkovich said. "I thought we really did a pretty good job."

Swanson led the Bulldogs in scoring with 13, with seven in the first half, including a bucket from deep in the first half.

"It's no accident those go in," Parkovich said earlier in the season. "She works hard."

Parkovich thought the team all got good shots throughout the second half, saying "We had good shots in the second half but a lot of them just didn't fall."

Many of those opportunities came off of a broken press, which the Mustangs employed throughout the half.

"We handled their press really well I thought," the Bulldogs coach said, noting senior Shae Tonn's ball-handling specifically. "She handled the ball very well tonight."

Tonn had nine points, while Frederickson and senior Lexi DeBriyn each had seven and senior Madi Martin had six.

STAA Falls By

Three To Phelps

The St. Thomas Aquinas Cavaliers suffered a a narrow defeat by the hands of the visiting Phelps Green Knights 50-47.

Phelps' Marti Rudowski went wild over the first half as she brought here team to a 24-22 lead going into the half. Rudowski piled up 17 first half points before coming back to the court in the second half for another 19 points. By far enough to take top scoring honors with 36 points.

STAA's stalwart scorer Alexa Pristelski gave it her all, scoring 23 points for her Cavaliers. Millie Benson also did a fabulous job with 18 points on the night.



Lady Badgers Overwhelm Tigerton

The Niagara Lady Badgers completely overwhelmed the Tigerton girls 56-18 Thursday night.

Behind an 18 point push by Jasmine Racine and a 17 point push by Cassie Gill the Badgers easily defeated then Tigerton attack which saw only one player achieve double digits with 12.

The first half saw the Badgers get ahead 39-12 before putting the game on ice with a 17-6 second half.

Wausaukee Competes In Marathon Tourney

The Wausaukee Rangers took part in Marathons Holiday tournament over the break where they were defeated by Marathon 70-27 while defeating Loyal 52-51.

During the game with Marathon the Rangers had a hard time continuing Marathons shooters as they built a huge first half lead 41-16.
