Wausaukee and Oneida Share M&O Penthouse

Issue Date: January 23, 2019

Rangers Get Defensive In win Over Cougars

Wausaukee continues to roll in the M&O Conference, winning 58-31 over Coleman on Thursday.

The Rangers led 31-20 at the half and locked things down defensively to seal a comfortable win. The Cougars finished with just 11 points in the second half. They tried to shoot more three-pointers than in the first half, when the gameplan was to run and gun a bit more, but the shots weren't falling.

The Cougars weren't helped by Cameron Compe getting into foul trouble. She has been the most consistent offensive force in Coleman green this season, but she finished with two points in the game.

"We had a gameplan. A lot of our shots didn't go in and Cameron got into foul trouble, unfortunately, because she's one of our better shooters and one of our higher scorers," Coleman coach Glen Ziemer said.

Hailey Ziemer finished with nine points to lead Coleman, making all of her shots from deep, while Kyla Manning had eight points.

"Defense has been kind of our motto all year. That's a really good team and we held them to 31 points and I think defensively, I don't think we're giving up 40 points on average for the year," Wausaukee coach Dave Messar said. "There are nights, no matter how good of a shooter you are, that rim is tiny, but if you can play that defense, you're going to be in every game and the girls have bought into it and they love to play defense. Kids coming off my bench would sooner just play the defensive role, so that's encouraging."

Wausaukee's top scorer was Madelyn Schlies, who had 18 in the game. Kaelyn Schlies wasn't far behind, as she chipped in 13. Natalie Schroeder got into double figures with 10 and Stephanie Murray had six.

Messar compared Coleman to his own team a couple years ago.

"That's a really good team. They are where we were two years ago," he said. "Nothing will replace them but more playing time and we've acknowledged that and earned our stripes to get to where we are."

Messar was obviously happy with his team's effort in its 11th win of the season.

"I had to go to my bench early on and we only have seven true players but we used them all and they know their role," he said. "They don't care if it's two minutes here or there or it's eight. They all come in positively and hustle. It's a great tribute to those kids."

Gladstone comes From Behind Late ot Nip Menominee

On a cold snowy night outside, the Menominee Maroon shooting went cold against Gladstone on Tuesday as the Maroons dropped a 40-36 Great Northern Conference contest.

With 30 seconds to go in the game, Gladstone's Alaina Trudeau hit a three-pointer to give the Braves a lead and the Braves held on for the win.

The Maroons just couldn't find their shooting stroke in the game, but they kept attempting quite a few deep shots.

"Ball movement, I thought, was very good for us offensively. We were able to get those open shots but tonight they weren't falling," Menominee coach Lucas Chouinard said. "We need to do a better job realizing when shots aren't falling, we have to take the ball to the basket and try to get them in a little bit of foul trouble. Second half, we didn't do a good job of that."

Menominee had a 21-20 lead at the halftime break and a 29-28 lead after three quarters. Gladstone's offense wasn't elite, but it was just enough to get them over the hump Tuesday night as they beat the Menominee zone for 12 points to the Maroons' seven.

"We tried to throw them off a little bit. We thought based on matchups we could maybe get some easy steals and I thought we were able to create some pressure, we were able to get some deflections," Chouinard said. "Unfortunately, we were not able to get the amount of steals we would like, but at the same time, we made them speed up, but they did a good job adjusting, finding the open holes and they made the open shots."

Emma Anderson was the only Maroon in double figures on the offensive end. Erin Barrette had six and Jenna Nolde added five, with nine Menominee players getting on the scoresheet.

Gladstone's Megan Crow had a game-high points and Trudeau scored 11 including her late three-pointer.

Gillett Gouges STAA In Win

The Gillett Tigers were all over the court Thursday night as the visiting St. Thomas Aquinas Cavalier's found out, falling by way of a thirty point spread 63-33.
