Bulldog Defense Upsets Clippers

Issue Date: February 14, 2018

Peshtigo beat Sturgeon Bay 66-47 on Thursday, Feb. 8 behind a big second half where they scored 39 points and a stifling defense that held the Clippers to 30 percent shooting.

No Clipper that attempted more than two shots finished the night shooting over 38 percent from the field. Sturgeon Bay's leading scorer was Carson Talbert, who got 13 on 3-10 shooting. Mitchell Jackson finished with eight, making one of his nine attempts from the field.

"We worked on playing defense as a whole," Bulldogs Coach Nate Motkowski said after the game. "We really communicated better tonight and I think that made the difference."

The Bulldogs shot 21-43 from the field as a team, making 18-26 free throws and 6-12 three-pointers.

Cade Tackmier got 16, Cameron Noffke had 14 and Mitchell VanVooren got 11. All three shot over 50 percent from the field. Tackmier went 4-4 at the free throw line and behind the arc. Trent Carriveau and Reid Marquardt each had seven on efficient nights for the Bulldogs.

The Clippers ran a zone against the Bulldogs for most of the night, something Motkowski said the team was prepared for.

"We spent two days prepping for their different looks in zone, and I thought our guys did a good job of spreading it out, staying patient, getting the ball inside and working for the best look possible," Motkowski said. "I think that made a difference."

The Bulldogs shared the ball, getting 19 assists as a team. Max Neumann was the catalyst, finishing with nine assists.

"We were a lot more patient," Motkowski said. "We made the easy pass instead of trying to force things and being over-aggressive. We just worked the ball around as a team and waited until we got our best look."



Marinette's Title Hopes Fade With Loss at Wrightstown

A rough offensive first half was enough to do in Marinette against Wrightstown on Friday, Feb. 9, ending the Marines' hopes of a North Eastern Conference.

Marinette fell behind 42-26 at the end of the first half, falling 85-73 despite a 47-point second half for the Marines.

Matt Wagner continued to pace the Marines, finishing with 22 points for the night. Jordan Wendt had 17, Jake Poetzl put up 16 and Tyler Fayta had 10.

Wrightstown was carried by Mayson Hazaert, who put in about as clean of a basketball game as a coach could ask for.

He had 34 points on 13-17 shooting. He made all nine of his shots from inside the arc, going 4-8 from deep and 4-5 at the free throw line, also adding five rebounds.

His big night overshadowed a strong night for Luke Haese, who scored 23 on 7-13 shooting, making 4-9 threes. James Hansen also had 10 points.

After the win, Marinette is 12-3 in NEC play, while Wrightstown is 14-1.



Suring Too Much for Gillett

The Gillett Tiger boys were no match for the Suring Eagles Friday night as the home court Eagles blasted a hole in the Gillett Tigers 57-21.

After the first 18 minutes of play it was fairly apparent who had won the game"Suring. No surprise due to the fact that they toted a 39-8 lead entreating the intermission. Ryan Mahoney fired in 12 points over the first half. Mitch Stegeman registered 10 while Caleb Lally added on eight.

By the end of the night the Tigers had amassed a mere 21 points with Logan Krause taking the lions share with nine points. Logan Block and Cole Long both chipped in four points each.

Suring's Mahoney was top of the charts in this matchup with 16 points. Stegeman followed up with 14 while Lally rounded off the top three with six points.



Cougars Cap Off Week With Win

The Coleman Cougars secured a 74-59 victory over the visiting St. Thomas Aquinas Cavalier boys Friday night.

STAA kept good pace with the Cougars over the first half with the Cougars entering the locker room ahead 33-28 but slipped a bit over the second half, letting the Cougars own that halves differential 41-31.

Peyton Nelson was the cougar's top scorer with 23 points for the Cougars. Aaron Fraser posted 17 while Cole Woulf got 16.

Jack Farley l4d all scorers Friday night with 31 points. Christian Hornick added on 13 while Tyler Stuart got 11.



Goodman-Pembine Falls In Overtime

The Goodman-Pembine Patriots lost a heartbreakers Friday night when they took on Three Lakes who won in over time 57-51.

"Both teams struggled to score in a very physical game," said Patriot head coach John Swick. "We were able to builds some leads and at one point in the second half had a 9 point lead but just couldn't hold them. They made the plays they needed to keep extending the game in both overtimes until we just ran out of luck in the end. Hats off to them for getting the job done. This one really hurts and we need to let it go and get back to work Monday and build towards Regionals."

Patriot scoring leaders were Wyatt Marcy with 14 points and Elisha Heath with 9 points. Evan Metras, Hagan Braaten and Jared Knutson each had 8 points apiece.



Coleman Keeps Wins Coming

The Coleman Cougars, who have really made a world of improvement since last season, continued their winning ways Monday night when they took down the Laona-Wabeno Rebels 46-33.

Cole Woulf led the way for the Cougars with 12 points while Cayden Bintz fired in nine points.

The Rebels were led by Jesse Pakulski with nine points while Bob Brauer and Baylen Caley both tacked on eight to the effort.



Suring Steals Show In Lena

The Suring Eagle boys literally style the show in Lena Tuesday night as a bucket load of steal and scores went their way for a 65-37 victory.

Talk about fast breaks, the Eagles had their fair share. Especially Eagles Mitch Stegeman and Ryan Mahoney who's intuition and speed made for a very quick lead.

"We are a small team, our tallest guy is six foot," said Lena head coach Fritz Weidner. "When we face teams like this with a bunch of guys over six foot its really tough. But you know what, we handle things ok. Though we were behind we didn't wquit and thats been the story of this team all season. They never quit and work hard no matter what the score. Thats the way I want them to be. We are young and the kids work hard and are just great I'm always proud of them."

Stegeman started the scoring with a steal and score and returned to the hope moments later for a nice double move layup.

Mahoney joined in with a layup before scoring twice more off of steal and scores. Before the dust settled from the whirl wind opening minutes the Eagles led 14-0.

"We have some very decent athletes that really are great at anticipating where the ball is going and are able to produce many steals on any given night," said Suring head coach Jim Keefe.

Caleb Lally was next to hit for the Eagles bringing them to a 16-0 lead.

After an 18 point drought for the Wildcats the silence was broken by Colby Borchert who fired in a two point bucket.

Lena's Zack Cops found an opening in the defense a short while later and scored twice before Mahoney struck again making it a 23-6 differential.

Cops found his way inside for another score but it was answered by Stegeman on yet another steal and score at mid court.

Chantz Rowell gave the Wildcats their final score of the half before a final stegeman steal and score for a 36-14 halftime readout.

"We are really looking to develop the bench more as we head into the tournament. I know we are going to need some guys to give us some good minutes there. My bench have been busting their humps in practice. So it was really nice to see some of our younger guys do a great job out there tonight."

Though they were far behind the quick hitting Eagles the Wildcats refused to call it quits and only played harder as the time ticked off the clock.

By the end of the second half the wildcats had nearly met the Eagles in scoring as the Ealses ended the second half with 29 more points to the Wildcats 23.

Mahoney was the games top scorer with 24 points to his name. Stegeman added on 14 while Cody Smith and Lally both chipped in eight point each.

Lena was led by Cops with 15 points and Borchert with nine. Rowell scored seven.



Goodman Pembine Drops First Half Lead for Loss

The Goodman Pembine Patriots, after holding a 29-26 first half lead that they carried well into the second were overcome by White Lake 53-52.

"This was our second conference loss in a row and it really cost us in conference standings and seeding," said Patriot head coach John Swick. "We are in a stretch where we just can't stay disciplined enough to hold a late lead. This wasn't a pretty game by any stretch but it was ours for the taking. Credit to White Lake for making the plays down the stretch that we couldn't. For the most part we executed well and had the game in control after taking a 3 point lead into the half. We stretched it to 8 with about 4 minutes left and then went through a stretch of turnovers and forced shots that opened the door for a White Lake comeback. We have some work to do and that will begin tomorrow."

The Patriots were led tby Hagan Braaten with 16 points and 8 rebounds. Evan Metras with 13 points and Wyatt Marcy with 11 points.



STAA Secures Win Over Stockbridge

The St. Thomas Aquinas Cavaliers bagged a 67-45 win over the visiting Stockbridge boys Tuesday night.

STAA wanted the win and it showed as the guys in green and gold battled their way to a 34-22 halftime lead.

The Cavaliers were able to hang onto to the lead over the second for the win.

Tyler Stuart was the evening top scorer with 26 points. He was followed by Jack Farley with 22 and Christian Hornick with 16. Joe Faucett chipped in two points while Dominic Piasecki hit for one point.



Menominee Bags Win

Peshtigo Powers Past Richland Center in the Dells

Cameron Noffke had 16 points, including 10 in the first half, while Mitchell VanVooren got 13. Max Neumann finished with 10 and both Reid Marquardt and Cade Tackmier chipped in eight for the Bulldogs.

The Bulldogs held Richland Center to 17 points in the first half. The only player that gave Peshtigo trouble was Devon Schmitz, who finished with over half of his team's points.

He scored 30 points on 8-17 shooting, making 11-14 at the free throw line and 3-4 from beyond the three-point arc. He was the only player in double figures for Richland Center, also getting four assists. Jacob Schauf went 3-6 for seven points.

Richland Center went 16-45 from the field as a team, making 14 of 21 attempts at the free throw line.



Maroons Can't Catch Rebels, Fall 62-55

The Menominee Maroons couldn't quite close the gap against Laona/Wabeno on Thursday, Feb. 8, losing 62-55.

The Maroons trailed 33-20 at the half, falling despite a 35-point second half led by Brendon Harris.

Harris finished with 18 points, the game's highest total. Keegan Monroe had 11 and Tyler Kuester gave the Maroons nine.

Laona/Wabeno got balanced scoring from four scorers, who combined for 53 points, to hold off a Maroon rally. Jacob Christianson and Baylen Caley had 14 apiece, while Jesse Pakulski chipped in 13 and Josh Stefanski totaled 12.

The Rebels are 10-7 on the season, sitting at third in the Northern Lakes Conference behind Crandon and Phelps.





Bulldogs Hold Off Wolves for Road Victory

Peshtigo held Algoma to 19 points in the first half, holding on for a 53-45 win over the Wolves on Tuesday.

Reid Marquardt, who was forced into a starting role with Cameron Noffke out for the game, was the team's leading scorer for the first time this season, getting up 11 shots and making six, finishing with 15 points on the night.

Cade Tackmier ended up with 14 and Trent Carriveau got 10. Max Neumann ended the night with seven on 3-4 shooting.

After a win over Sturgeon Bay last week, Bulldogs Coach Nate Motkowski noted that the team's bench play is getting stronger.

"Each week we're getting more comfortable with our bench," Motkowski said after the 66-47 win over Sturgeon Bay. "Our guys are getting more comfortable with their roles and we're extending those minutes for some of our guys off the bench."

That improved bench play is going a long way to improving the team's play as a whole, Motkowski said Thursday.

"It's better for our whole team because then some of our starters get a break and we can go 10 or 11 off the bench," he said. "It makes everybody more poised on the court or under control on the court because they've got fresh legs and fresh minds."

In an uncharacteristic night, the Bulldogs were outshot 41 to 39, though they shot 46 percent to the Wolves' 41.

The Bulldogs made 14 of 25 free throws, while the Wolves struggled from both the free throw and three-point line. They made five of 17 threes and went 6-12 at the line.

Algoma's Aidan Wallace finished with 14 points, and he was the only player in double figures for the home team.
