Blue Devils Use Long Ball to Nip Bulldogs 7-5

Issue Date: April 4, 2019

Sometimes momentum is everything.

Momentum was a significant part of Peshtigo and Oconto's season-opening battle on Tuesday, with Oconto getting the 7-5 win.

Oconto took a 2-0 lead in the first inning after runs by Hannah Wusterbarth and Morgan Durand. In the third, Maggie Sohrweide reached on an error and came around to score to extend the lead to 3-0.

In the fourth, Peshtigo knotted things up at three with runs by Grace Wickman, Kennedy Chmela and Allison Dudka.

After both teams scored one run in the fifth, Oconto's coming on a long ball from Morgan Durand. The Blue Devils got three in the sixth to grab the win, with Wusterbarth and Sohrweide each scoring runs once again with Nevaeh Brill crushing a home run to seal the deal.

Getting the lead back after losing it early was important for the Blue Devils.

"I told the girls, "Peshtigo's the type of team, when the momentum gets going their way, you want to take it away from them right away because if you don't they can definitely blow the whole game away in a hurry,'" Oconto coach Jeremy Wusterbarth said. "And for us to get that home run and get that lead again kind of put the wind back in their sails and got the momentum back on our side and I really think it was the difference in the ballgame."

Wusterbarth was happy with how his team looked. For Peshtigo coach Tom Christensen, it's tough to come into a game like Tuesday with sky-high expectations, considering it was the Bulldogs' first time on a field this season.

It was the first time Peshtigo hitters had faced live pitching this spring and the first time Bulldog pitchers threw with a batter in the box.

"First time out, we've got a couple things to clean up, but they had the lead and we came back," Christensen said. "We'll leave here saying "O.K., that's a fair start to the season' and we'll clean up that stuff that we don't want to happen. Nobody should leave here with your chin down."

Oconto Falls

Obliterates Little

Chute In Opener

The Oconto Falls girls opened the 2019 season this past week with a 13-0 victory over the visiting Little Chute Mustangs last Thursday.

The Panthers weren't going to wait for something to happen this season, instead they went walked onto their diamond and began playing ball as they fired in five first inning runs to dishearten the Mustangs.

Five runs quickly became seven, and few innings later seven became 13. Which was plenty to end the game early at the five inning mercy rule.

The Panthers' 13 run day was keyed off 16 hits while the Panthers commented only one error.

Oconto Falls' Tolzman nearly secured a no hitter on the night as she gave up a single hit to the Mustangs' Granger.

On the mound Tolzman also struck out seven would be hitters.

Taking the loss for Little Chute was Herdsmen who finished the night with five strike outs. She gave up 16 hits, 13 runs (12 earned) and four walks. While allowing one home run which was swatted by Oconto Falls' Ash.

At the plate the Panthers were led by Albrecht with a three of four showing with two runs. Hubert also went three of four with two RBIs.

The final last half inning was were the game was decided. After six scoreless innings with very few hits amassed by either team, the Blue Devils looked to their hitter Durand who clubbed a hit that brought in Sohrweide for the game closing win.

Pitching the great game for the Blue Devils was Honish who pitched two innings where she struck out two and allowed one run and two hits. Susa had the other five innings where she struck out one and allowed one walk and four hits.

The loss was given to Southern Doors Wery who gave up three hits and one run while striking out five.

At the plate Southern Door's Neinas went three for two.

Oconto's Duurand and Wusterbarth were both one of three at the plate.



Coleman Establishes Early Foot Hold With Win Over Oconto

The Oconto Blue Devils were handed a significant early season loss Thursday afternoon when they traveled to Coleman to take on the Cougars.

The Cougars would eventually come away with the 8-1 win.

The Cougars were first to strike, getting on the board in the first with one run. Two more runs in the fourth helped to create a little breathing room before a big sixth inning gave the Cougars a 7-1 lead.

The Blue Devils only run of the night was scored in the fifth when Sohweide crossed home.

At the plate the Cougars were led by Lauren Osterberg with a three of four plate effort. She also scored a run. Kyla Manning and Zeitler both posted two of four showings with each crossing the plate twice during the match up.

Cameron Compe opened the Cougars season with a win in the circle for the Cougars, striking out 10 while allowing one earned run off of four hits.

Brill took the loss for Oconto giving up five hits and two earned run while striking out two.



Marines Start Season With Win Over Shawano 8-3

The Marinette Marines softball team started the season with a win on Tuesday, beating Shawano 8-3.

Marinette, trailing in the third, scored five runs in the inning with two outs.

Sydney Nemetz, the Marines' starting pitcher went seven innings striking out seven and allowing three runs on nine hits and two walks, holding onto the lead Marinette built in the third for the remainder of the game.

She also went 3-for-4 with a double and four RBI, adding two runs as well.

Bailey Thielen went 2-for-4 with two RBI and Tatum Ihde went 1-for-2 with three walks and three runs scored.

The win was Marinette coach Josh Lacy's first as head coach of the Marines.
