Crivitz Downs Coleman To Take M&O Lead

Issue Date: January 16, 2019

Crivitz and Coleman battled to the final minute for the M&O lead on Thursday, with Crivitz coming out on top.

Coleman actually led early, taking as much as an 10-point lead with a few minutes to go in the first half, 22-12 The Cougars took a 25-22 lead into the break, then Crivitz packed it in on defense to limit the Crivitz offense inside.

"Coleman gave us fits in the first half. We tried to be as aggressive as we can, as often as we can and they took advantage of it," Baumann said. "They went to the basket and we were too busy off the ball defense just standing and watching and they were just sneaking guys in the paint and dishing it off and they killed us."

After Crivitz battled to take the lead at 37-35 with 9:23 to play, Coleman went on a nine-point run to take a seven point lead. Crivitz then went on a 10-point run of its own however, led by Dawson Andrist, to take a 48-46 lead.

"We see where the openings are in their defense," Coleman coach Tim Forner said. "Their adjustment was to pack it inside defensively and take away our high-low look. Penetration was not there as easily. We're not a perimeter shooting team, per se, so it was a little bit tougher for us to attack. They made a great adjustment that actually forced us to bring the ball out when they packed it down."

Crivitz led by just two with a minute and 58 seconds to go when Logan Zeitler hit a couple of free throws for Coleman. Crivitz added points from Elijah Lawrence with 47 seconds to go, a free throw from Andrist and two free throws from Chandler Kaldenberg to build the lead to seven.

Cayden Bintz hit a three-pointer with 11 seconds left, but it wasn't enough, as Crivitz came out with the 57-49 win.

"That's a good team and we could have really fell apart in that first half down 22-12 at one point," Crivitz coach Jeff Baumann said. "It was a roller coaster but the guys didn't give up and that was the biggest message."

Kaldenberg led Crivitz with 15 points, making all four of his free throws down the stretch. Andrist scored 11 and Eian Baumann had eight.

Bintz had 15 points with four three-pointers in the game and Payton Nelson had 10.

Bulldogs Hold Off Blazers in Home Conference Win

After a rather slow first half, both the Peshtigo Bulldogs and NEW Lutheran Blazers both heated up in the second half, but Peshtigo outlasted NEW for a 64-58 win.

The Bulldogs led 27-23 at the break. Each team scored at least 10 more points than in the first half, but Peshtigo came out the victors, though it could have been by more.

"Credit to them. A couple times it was 10, 12, 14 points and I thought we really could have blown the doors off and they found a way to make a big play defensively or knock down a shot," Peshtigo coach Nate Motkowski said. "At the same time, I was proud of our guys, they didn't hang their head or get down on themselves. They kept working hard and playing to get the lead back."

With about eight minutes left, Peshtigo led 50-37, but NEW crawled back into it. Peshtigo hung on, however.

The Bulldogs did it with some big performances from Cade Tackmier and Trent Carriveau, who each scored 19.

"I think everybody was looking to find the open guy. I know there were a couple things that we saw that Trent was open in a corner or could get out for a quick look and I thought our guys did a good job finding him," Motkowski said. "Overall, Trent had a huge game on both ends and I thought he showed a lot of heart tonight to step up and had a great game."

Cameron Noffke scored 10 in what was a quiet night from Mitchell VanVooren, who scored two points on three shots, battling foul trouble throughout.

NEW got 26 from Samuel Meerstein, but it took 21 shots from the field and 13 free throws to do it. Meerstein was efficient from the line, making 12 of 13 shots, but he hit only six of his attempts from the field.

"We walked through a lot of different looks with him yesterday at practice. We had a couple of different guys on him, but he's a good scorer and he's going to get his points," Motkowski said. "I thought overall we did a nice job on him. There were a couple times where you just tip your hat and say "hey, nice shot,' but he got a bunch from the free-throw line tonight and that was our fault too. We've got to play without our hands."

Overall, NEW shot 32 percent from the field and Peshtigo shot 45 percent from the field. NEW's 20-of-23 mark at the free throw line helped its cause.
