Crivitz Holds M&O Lead; Faces 2nd Place Coleman Monday

Issue Date: February 14, 2019

Peshtigo Handles Gibraltar at Home 57-44

After a couple of reschedulings and postponements due to weather, Peshtigo finally got Gibraltar on the schedule, winning 57-44.

It was a back-and-forth first half, but Peshtigo took a 36-24 lead into the second half.

"I thought we had a decent start for not playing since January 21 and not even having many practices in because of the weather," Peshtigo coach Nate Motkowski said. "I thought our guys came out well, we had good energy, we had about a 10 point lead and then we got stagnant again. Our defense would fire up and we played really good defense and then our offense would shut down. Overall I was proud of the guys coming out in the situation we had and getting a good win."

The defense was key to a win, as the Bulldogs couldn't find the basket very easily, but they didn't allow many points either.

Peshtigo was outscored 22-20 in the second half, but it held on for a win.

"I thought our defense made the difference in that stretch where we separated from them," Motkowski said. The Bulldogs built the lead to near 20 at one point. "I think it was because our defense was working a bit harder, we forced some turnovers, got some quick looks and I think that made the difference."

Peshtigo put up 71 shots on what wasn't a very good shooting night (32 percent). The Bulldogs did out-rebound Gibraltar 44-19 in order to get up 26 more shots in the game.

Peshtigo's Trent Carriveau led all scorers with 15 points on 6-for-10 shooting. He knocked down a trio of 3-pointers in the game.

Mitchell VanVooren went 5-for-16 to finish with 12 points.

For Gibraltar, Evan Henry and Trevor Reinhardt each scored 13 points to lead the way.

MarinesCan'tStop Mustangs Second Half Charge, Fall 86-77

Marinette fell to Little Chute 86-77 on Wednesday.

Marinette led 41-40 at the half, but Little Chute's offense was the better in the second half, led by Isaiah Boe, who finished with 26. Noah Mueller finished with 15.

Matt Wagner had a team- and game-high 29 points for the Marines. Jake Poetzl finished with 14 and Jeremy Wendt scored 10. Tyler Fayta and Matt Kramer chipped in with 8.

Suring Boys Give Servicemen a Show in Win Over Gillett

The Suring Eagle boys hosted the GillettvTiger for their annual military night last Friday and the Suring boys certainly didn't disappoint as they took down the Tigers 70-53.

Mitch Stegeman had his number called more than once in this match up and the accurate tall guy took his chances, hitting for a nice 13 point first half helping. By games end Stegeman had earned top scoring honors with 21 points for the Eagles.

Caleb Lally also did his part for the Eagle attack, striking for 18 points over the game. Dequez Sepulveda added 10.

Gillett was led by the efforts of Cole Long with 18 points. Logan Block registered 14 points while Logan Krause aded 12 on the night.

Coleman Wins Over STAA

The Coleman Cougars defeated the St. Thomas Aquinas Cavaliers 85-11 Friday night in Coleman.

Cayden Blintz was the games top performer with 12 points for the Cougars. Logan Heitler posted 11 points while Zach Zablocki also posted 11 points. Payton Nelson, Evan Stank and Simon Meadke all chipped in 10 points each.

STAA was led by Alex Powers with 10 points and Brennan Smith with one.

Coleman Puts Away Wausaukee

The Cougars, who have their eye on the M&O lead and their foot in the door, kept their hopes alive Saturday afternoon with a resounding 52-23 victory over the visiting Wausaukee Rangers.

It was a slow start and the stat sheet bore this out as the Cougars were only able to get a small lead 15-8. But a second half that saw a bit of a momentum gain from the Cougars put the Coleman guys ahead by games end 52-23.

Payton Nelson was the games top scorer with 13 points for the Cougars while teammates Cayden Bintz and Simon Meadke followed up with 10 points each.

Brandon Shigouri led the way for the Rangers with nine.

Wausaukee Falls to Florence

The Wausaukee Rangers had a hard time keeping up with the Florence Bobcats Friday night as the Bobcats came into Wausaukee and stole the show 87-75.

It was a great start for the Bobcats who managed to push their tally to 50 points by the half. Wausaukee returned fire over the second half with a 44 point readout.

Hayden Renikow led the Ranger scorers during the game scoring 22 points for Wausaukee while Tristian Pollard posted 17 points. Brandon Shigouri added 14 to the total.

Florecne's Evan Beaster took top scoring honors with a 31 point final readout while Kaden Schuls posted 17 points. Riley Hixon got 16 points on the night.

Crivitz Stays Ahead With Win Over Niagara

The Crivitz Wolverines are defending their M&O lead well and last Friday night they showed that Niagara won't be creating any upsets as the Wolverines went on to win 68-34.

It was a 32-17 game at the half and the Wolverines looked to up the tempo in the second half, scoring 36 points while stopping the Badgers at another 17 point half.

Chandler Kaldenberg was the evenings top scorer with 18 points. Dawson Andrist posted a solid 17 points while Jaden Werner followed up with 13 points.

Niagara was led by Tristian DeJardin with nine points and Landon Kaldor with six.

"We played with great intensity," sad Niagara Head Coach Jim Hoogland. "Crivitz is the best team in the conference and we made them work for it. This game was a marked improve,meant over the first time we played."

Stockbridge Defeats Lena

The hosting Lena Wildcats had their hands full with the boys from Stockbridge Monday night as they fel to the visiting team 78-65.

Lena started stronger than the eventual winners, posting 34 points over the first half while holding Stockbridge to 27.

But a 48 point effort by the Stockbridge boys would spell doom for the Wildcats.

Stockbridge's Joey Schneider was the games top scorer with 24 points while teammate Sawyer Levknecht posted 13.

Max Beyer led the effort for the Wildcats with 15 points. Simon Gard posted 11 while Colby Borchert, John Jagiello and Mason Simonsson all got 10 points each.

Niagara Falls to Phelps

The Niagara Badgers took a hard fall to the Phelps boys Monday night, falling by way of an 85-50 final verdict.

Were it not for a complete collapse by the Badgers over the second half the game may have turned out differently.

To start with teams battled for the edge with Niagara holding that edge at the half 35-33. But a complete offense collapse over the second half left the Badgers with only 15 points while the Phelps boys exploded for 52 closing frame points.

Chase Robbins led all scorers with 34 Phelps points. Andrew Gill followed him with 17 points while Carl Gutierrez posted 16.

Niagara was led by Tristian DeJardin with 15 points and Josh Weber with seven.

Strong Second Half Helps Rangers Win at Gillett

Gillett started out strong, but couldn't sustain it against Wausaukee on Monday, falling 57-49.

The Tigers took a 21-11 lead with seven and a half minutes left in the first half, but by the halftime break, the Rangers led 26-25, with a pair of buckets by both Christian Shigouri and Andrew Schroeder the catalysts.

Halfway through the second half, Wausaukee had put its foot down, leading 44-30 with about nine minutes to play. Gillett wouldn't be able to pull within 10 until the final minute of the game.

Gillett is only going six players deep on the bench, so they were a bit tired in the second half.

Wausaukee, coming off three games in four days that coach Dave Lindbeck called a "pretty rough stretch," continued to push the pace off turnovers.

"They play aggressive man defense, kind of a combination of when you get tired, the discipline breaks down and that's kind of on us and on them, too," Gillett coach Russ Long said when asked what he attributed his team's breakdowns in the second half to. "My hat's off to them."

Meanwhile, Wausaukee is kind of hitting its stride after a couple of weeks of limited practice due to winter weather.

"We're just about peaking right now," Lindbeck said. "We should have peaked in January, but we're starting to believe in ourselves and the kids are believing in each other, trusting each other and believing themselves. We're going to keep pushing."

Schroeder led the Rangers with 16 points, while Tristan Pollard had 15 and Tyler Gruszynski had 10.

Cole Long led the Tigers with 19 points. Logan Block finished with 17 points.

Hot Shooting Marines Down Waupaca on the Road

Marinette defeated Waupaca Saturday 77-64 behind a lethal downtown attack that saw them shoot over 50 percent from 3-point range.

Marinette led 34-32 at halftime of the road tilt, but the Marines' scoring turned up a bit in the second half, as they put up 43 in the period.

Matt Wagner scored 23 points, making 4 of his 8 three-pointers and 7 of his 8 free throws.

Marinette went 10-for-19 from deep, including two from Jake Poetzl in a 20-point game. Tyler Fayta added 11 and Matt Kramer made both his 3-pointers to finish with 6 points.

Poetzl grabbed 10 rebounds in the win as well.

Big First Half Propels Marinette to Win Over Oconto Falls

Marinette defeated local North Eastern Conference foes Oconto Falls on Friday by a 14-point margin after a dominant first half.

Marinette led 50-30 after the first half. The Marines started the second half strong, but Oconto Falls stepped it up and cut the lead to nine, 66-57 with 3:40 to go in the game.

"We just got a little cold from the field," Marinette coach Matt Joost said. "In the first half, we got a lot of easy shots easy in positions and I think we expected that in the second half and that didn't necessarily happen."

Marinette did hang on for the win, as the Falls surge happened just a bit too late in the game. The Panthers offense also slowed late and Jake Poetzl took over. When the lead was cut to nine, he scored five straight to build the lead again. Out of a timeout, the Marines got a good post entry pass and Poetzl made the Panthers pay.

"The first part of the second half, they did a good job of bringing our guards away from the perimeter and making our post entry passes really tough," Joost said. "I think that was the biggest reason why we weren't getting easy scores in the first half. The first half, we were able to get it down there any time we wanted. We were kind of forcing it in the second half rather than taking a couple extra passes to get it in."

Marinette needed the post play, as it made 20 of its 33 shots in the paint and just 5 of its 19 shots from three.

Poetzl scored 27 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in the game. Matt Wagner scored 17, Jeremy Wendt had 16 points and Tyler Fayta had a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds.

For Oconto Falls, Josiah Schoen had 15, Jared Parsons scored 13, Mitchell Manns had 11 and Dakota Carriveau finished with 10.

Peshtigo's Defense Clamps Down on Sevastopol in 2nd Half for 61-45 Win

The Peshtigo Bulldogs didn't look like themselves in the first half of Monday's 61-46 win over Sevastopol, but they made up for it in the second half.

Peshtigo trailed 30-25 after the first half on what was something of a rough shooting night from downtown, but the Bulldogs remedied things in the second half to outscore Sevastopol by 20 and hold their opponents to just 16.

Peshtigo shot 56 times in the game to Sevastopol's 35 shots, dominating the boards. Peshtigo had 25 rebounds in the game to Sevastopol's 11.

Mitchell VanVooren had 30 points on the night to power Peshtigo to a win, going 12-for-18 from the field with five rebounds.

Cameron Noffke scored 12 on 6-for-11 shooting and Cade Tackmier went 3-for-9 to finish with 8.

Sevastopol's leading scorer was Robert Pollman, who finished with 15.
