Blue Devils Burn Bulldogs in Rematch

Issue Date: January 17, 2018

Blue Devils Win Tight Battle with Bulldogs In Packerland Rematch

The Peshtigo Bulldogs hung around against Oconto on Monday, Jan. 15, but were never able to entirely close the gap, with the Blue Devils closing the game out, 42-38.

After going down 19-10 with six minutes left in the first half, the Bulldogs closed out the first half on fire.

Emma Frederickson hit two threes, including one as time expired, with Hannah Swanson and Shae Tonn added triples of their own to cut the gap to 24-22 at the break.

Last time the two teams played, the Bulldogs hit a basket before the break to swing momentum and Oconto Coach Russ Young said he was worried the same thing was going to happen again.

"I've got to tell you. When that happened, I had visions of the first time we played them," he said. "I was just thinking to myself, "we can't let them get the lead because it will break our back.'"

The Bulldogs were able to tie the game at 31 with 10:15 remaining on a putback layup by Swanson, but that was their last bucket for over five minutes, as they wouldn't score again until there was just five minutes left.

The Blue Devils were only able to build a five-point lead in that period, giving Peshtigo a sliver of hope.

The Bulldogs cut it to three with 1:01 remaining on two free throws by Frederickson, but after some missed shots by the Bulldogs, they escaped with the win.

"They missed some shots they normally don't miss," Young said. "They're good shooters and we're fortunate they bounced our way."

Young said the team didn't do anything too complex to limit the Bulldogs scoring.

"We're vanilla. We're as vanilla as you're going to get. We don't do anything too complicated," Young said. "Defensively, we were just hoping to force them into some shots they don't normally take. They take a lot of those threes but if they're hitting them, we're in deep, deep trouble."

Peshtigo Coach Bruce Parkovich credited his team's defense in the game, but at the end of the day, they weren't able to get it done on the offensive end.

"They worked hard on defense, but the name of the game is being able to put the ball in the basket and I think we hurried some of our shots," Parkovich said. "Our old adage is "stay in the game with your defense and you win with your offense. I guess that's exactly what didn't happen tonight. We had some chances."

Oconto's leading scorer was forward Sydney Koch, who had 13. Lauryn Nerenhausen had nine and Mara Allen, had eight, though the Bulldogs did a good job of limiting the 6'1" forward's impact.

Frederickson had 13 for Peshtigo, while Madi Martin had 10 and Swanson finished with nine.



Rangers Survive Tight Battle With Niagara

It was almost to close to call Friday night in Niagara when the Wausaukee Rangers came to town. After both halves of play were in the book the Rangers were on top by one, 28-27.

A low scoring game to say the least. The defensive battle saw the Rangers stop the badgers at 16 first half points while allowing only 11 over the second half.

The Rangers' 19 point first half was the game breaker. Though the Niagara defense found their footing over the second, holding the Rangers to just nine points.

Over the first half Wausaukee's Madelyn Schlies and Natalie Schroeder combined for 12 points.

Niagara's Jasmine Racine topped all scorers with 11 points. Cassie Gill got 10 while Maddie West chipped in five.

Wausaukee was led by Schroeder with nine points, Madelyn Schlies with six and Kaelyn Schlies with four.



Cougars Fail To Stay Afloat over Three Lakes

The Coleman Cougars had a sinking felling that turned into an all out capsize and wreck as the Three Lakes girls came away from Coleman with a 71-38 victory.

Four of Three Lakes' starters made their ways into double digits during the game and the score reflected that as Three lakes led at the half 40-17.

Coleman's Cameron Compe found her stride in the second half scoring 12 points, but the effort came too late as the Three Lakes' girls fired in another 31 points to close the game.

Taking top scoring honors for Three Lakes was Macy Sowinski with 19 points. Maggie Servent got 15 while Cynthia beavers and Kelly Krusick both added 14 points each.

Compe led the Cougars with 16 points while Kailey Klimek chipped in seven. Kyla Manning and Michaela Zeitler both added five points each.



Crivitz Keeps Streak Alive With Win Over Suring

The Crivitz Wolverines are conturing an defeated conference streak that has seen them rack up 9 wins this season. Last Thursday they added another W to the column with a 54-40 handling of the visiting Suring Eagles.

It took two Eagles to amass the amount that the games top scorer, Chloe Gruszynski, amassed for her Wolverines. Gruszynski ended the evening with 24 points while Niagara was led by Kylee Stelzer with 13 and Paige Krueger with 11.

Gruszysnki started her evening with 15 first half points, helping to propel her team to a 22-16 lead.

Over the second half Kieren Gribben and Sianna Guns picked up a considerable amount of slack as the two combined for 21 points with Guns taking the lions share.

By the end of the night Guns had piled up 15 points while Gribben added on eight.

Niagara's two leading scorers had little in the way of back up as the next two nears scorers got four points each.



Elcho Stings Florence For Win

The Elcho Hornets took down the Florence Bobcats last Tuesday night 64-45.

Leading the Bobcats were Jordyn Springer and Jenna Springer who both posted 10 points each. Jenna Springer also led the team in rebounds with 8.
