Area Girls Look Tough in Early Non-Conference Play

Issue Date: November 21, 2018

Peshtigo Posts Comeback Win Over Oconto

The Peshtigo Bulldogs didn't have the offensive wheels in motion during the first half against Oconto on Thursday, but the young Bulldogs settled in over the course of the final 18 minutes in their first game of the season.

Peshtigo trailed 19-11 at the half, with Oconto's varsity experience showing. The Blue Devils return four varsity starters, while Peshtigo debuted an entirely new varsity lineup on Thursday with the graduation of its whole starting five.

Peshtigo turned things around in the second half, outscoring the Blue Devils 24-14. Peshtigo's first lead came at 25-23, but they didn't pull away.

Oconto had a chance to tie the game on a shot by Jenna Hornblad with less than 20 seconds to go but it wouldn't fall and Peshtigo got a win to start the season 1-0.

"A good comeback by us in the second half. We were strong enough to go onto that lead and finish the game up," Peshtigo coach Bruce Parkovich said.

In the young Bulldogs' first game, there were things that they had to work into as the game went on.

"With the first game, there were some things I thought we covered and yet kids will be kids. They forgot some of the basic things on defense: keep your eye on the person and eye on the ball," Parkovich said. "We were turning and looking at the ball and credit to them. They were turning and going backdoor on us and getting some easy baskets. We corrected that at halftime and I thought that was a big part of our second half win."

One player that made a big difference was six-foot-tall freshman center Lianna Baxter. She scored 14 points in the second half and 19 total to lead all scorers.

"Just being a freshman, just a few jitters the first three or four minutes but then she settled down and was very steady," Parkovich said. "She's the only really true center on our team, so we're quite small if she's not in the lineup."

Senior guard Sidney Gullicksen is the one player on the team with extended varsity experience. She didn't start for Peshtigo last season, but she found her way onto the court in plenty of situations and improved over the offseason, Parkovich said.

"Sidney Gullicksen probably got to play the most and she worked hard over the summer," he said. "She said she really wanted to get better and she's our point guard."

Gullicksen scored three points in the game. Gabby Perry, the team's two guard, had four points, as did junior starting forward MiKennah Reek. Fifth starter sophomore Grace Wickman had three and sophomore Allison Dudka scored two. Those six, along with junior guard Mattie LaCoursiere, are going to be the team's main contributors this season.

"I thought all the seven girls performed and did well," Parkovich said. "Again, we're playing an Oconto team that had four starters back from last year, so I certainly thought our defense was very good. I thought we lacked rebounding at times, but that's something that we're going to have to work on all year and we've got patience on offense, so it was a good win for us."

Oconto is now 1-1, with their first win coming against Coleman in a game where Mara Allen dropped 33 points. She was limited to 12 by Peshtigo, as was Hornblad.



Kitzinger Leads Marinette Past Green Bay East

Katelyn Kitzinger started the 2018-19 season with a bang on Thursday. She scored 28 points on 8-14 shooting to lead the Marinette Marines to a season-opening 51-36 win over Green Bay East.

She added a team-high seven rebounds and five steals in what was a standout performance from the Marinette senior.

Mady Sims had 10 and Abby Wingender had seven for Marinette, which shot 15-43 from the field and capitalized from the free-throw line, scoring on 15 of 23 tries.

The Marines got 14 steals as a team to Green Bay's one, which made a difference in the game. East got eight less shots from the field and 15 less free throws.

Suring Opens Season

With Solid Win

The Suring Eagles took a nice little win over Rosholt, putting down the visiting Rosholt girls 44-34 to start this years Suring basketball action.

It was all about the early lead in this one as Suring quickly worked their way ahead of Rosholt with a 30-17 halftime readout.

During that first half Wylee vanBellinger shot the lights out, sinking three behind the arc shots while bagging a two pointer.

Rosholt found a little bit more in the way of defense over the second half, stopping the quick scoping Eagles at just 11 second half points.

By the end of the match up Rosholt's Jenna Trebs had scored 14 points to lead all scorers. Teammate Justine Ganski added on six.

For the Eagles VanBellinger led the way with 11 points. Kylee Steelier made 10 points while Paige Krueger added on six.



Niagara Beats Down Goodman/Pembine

The Niagara Badgers took a big win over the Goodman/Pembine Patriots 85-36 in Niagara.

It was all Badgers all the way as Niagara employed an extremely strong first half attack that left them way ahead at the intermission 52-16.

Another 30 points over the second half proved to be far to much for the Patriots to comeback from as the Badgers ended the night way ahead 85-36.

Leading all scorers in the game was Niagara's Jasmine Racine who piled up 18 points on the evening. She was followed by teammate Jessica Oratch with 16 and Cassandra Gill who also scored 16 points. Alyassa Cretton chipped in 12 to the big effort.

The Patriots Morrison posted 17 points on the night while Nelson added on 10.



Crivitz Opens Season With Win

The Crivitz Wolverines went wild Friday night when they took on the Florence Bobcats, pushing the Bobcats out of their gym by way of huge 67-40 differential.

That big lead was built early thanks to some great efforts from the Wolverines. Chloe Gruszynski helped to push the Wolverines to a double digit lead in the first half.

At the half the Wolverines controlled the scoreboard 32-21.

By the end of the game Gruszynski had amassed a game high 23 points and was followed by Sianna Guns with 16 points and Emalee Johnsen with 13. Kieren Gribben chipped in 11 points to the effort.

Jenna Springer led the way for the Bobcats with 12 points while Savannah Vassar got eight.



Gillett Starts Strong With Win

The Gillett Tiger girls basketball team secured a 44-33 home court win over the visiting Wittenberg girls 44-33 Friday evening.

It was tight at then half as the Tigers trailed 19-18, but a 26 point second half from Gillett gave the girls in black and red all they needed to outdo the visitors.

Aubrey DuBauch led the Tigers with 15 points while Sydney Young chipped in eight. Kris Schaal had two on the night.

Wittenberg's Herb need the night with a game leading 16 points.
