Wausaukee Advances to Sectionals

Issue Date: March 11, 2020

Wausaukee Gets Regional Win Over Goodman/Pembine

The Wausaukee Ranger boys made their way onto the WIAA post season Trail last week and faced off against the Goodman-Pembine Patriots who they hosted for a 66-39 Regional victory. The win advances the Rangers to the Regional Final where they will face the Gibraltar Vikings.

The win saw the Rangers post some pretty good number throughout. The opening minutes saw them fire off a hefty sum, getting ahead of the Patriots with a sizable 30-19 first half lead.

Wausaukee's Tristan Pollard certainly didn't disappoint as he piled up a 20 point tally by games end.

Goodman-Pembine was led by Jacob Kessel with 10 points and Boone Larison with nine points. Kevin Strietzel posted 10 points.

Wausaukee's Pollard was the games top performer with those 20 points to go along with his three of five showing at the line.

Brandon Shigouri and Hayden Renikow both posted a 13 point tally with Brendan Versaskas and Devin Brunette both getting six points each.

Wausaukee Survives Gibraltar in Regional Final

The Wausaukee Rangers after defeating the Goodman-Pembina Patriots the Wausaukee Rangers rolled to a WIAA Regional final victory, defeating the Gibraltar Vikings by way of a 79-70 final verdict.

Wausaukee finished the game with just about a 10 points lead, which they pretty much held throughout the game. Holding off the Vikings in the opening minutes with a 46-36 first half tally.

The second half differential was much closer with the Vikings taking the one point edge in the scoring 34-33.

Wausaukee employed a balanced attack throughout the game as four of their starters hit double digits to help push the Rangers to the win.

The leading scorer for the Rangers on the night was Hayden Renikow who fired in 23 points to lead all scorers. Tristan Pollard followed up with 19 points for the Rangers while teammate Brandon Shigouri posted 13. Brendan Versaskas rounded off the top scorers for Wausaukee with 10 points.

Gibraltar was led by Dominic Krauel with 16 points. Teammates Luke Steebs and Spencer Krauss both posted 14 points each.

Crivitz Takes Back Seat to Shiocton in Regional Match Up

The Crivitz Wolverines faced off against the Shiocton Wolves for a WIAA boys Regional basketball game last week and unfortunately for the Wolverines the Wolves were too much to overcome as the Wolves took the win 70-62.

The loss saw the Wolverines start with a very Strong push that should have created enough breathing room to skate the second half but it wasn't the case as the 29-18 first half Wolverine lead evaporated under the sweltering 52 point second half effort by the Wolves. The Wolverines were able to manage a 33 point second half effort.

The loss saw the Wolverines's Eian Baumann fight his way to a 20 point tally while Jaden Werner followed up with 12 points. Chandler Kaldenberg added 11 points to the total.

Shiocton was led by Austin Vanden Busch with 24 points. Derek Bedor posted 13 points while teammates Devin Hedon and Carbin Lorge both posted 12 points each.

Gillett Takes Big Loss to Florence

The Gillett Tigers saw their 2020 post season push come to an end this past week when they took on the Florence Bobcats who ran wild on the court for a 81-20 final readout.

The win saw the Tigers struggle early to get their offense in gear. The second half the Bobcats put the game on ice.

Logan Block led the way for the Tigers with 10 points while Anthony Carroll got nine. Herzog finished the game with one point.

Florence was led by Kaden Schuls with 22 points and P. Milan with 14 points. Boettcher posted 10 on the night.

Suring Gets Set Down by Gibraltar

The Suring Eagles could not stop the Gibraltar Vikings last week in WIAA Regional action as the Vikings invaded for the 66-49 victory over the Eagles.

Suring did its best to keep pace with the Vikings over the first half but started to see the game slip out of their hands as the Gibraltar boys entered the locker room ahead 34-20.

By games end the Eagles were led by Dequez Sepulveda with 14 points and Jayden Geniesse with 11 points. Ethan Hischke posted nine on the night.

The Vikings were led by Lindeberg with 14 points and Luke Steebs with 13 points. Krause posted 10 points.

Winnebago Lutheran Gets Win Over Coleman

The Coleman Cougars, who had a fantastic season this year, winning a share of the M&O title with Crivitz saw that great season end last week when they took the Winnebago Lutheran boys in Regional action, falling to the Winnebago boys 86-68.

The Cougars fought hard over the first half but were unable to get the lead in hand as the boys from Winnebago took the 44-33 first half lead.

That lead only increased over the closing minutes leaving the Cougars with the season ending loss.

Leading the way for the Cougars was Nick Teteak who fought tooth and nail for his team leading 25 point readout. Hayden Bintz chipped in 11 points while Payton Nelson added 10 to the final tally.

Winnebago Lutheran was led by Nell and Schwartz who both posted 26 points each on the night and Loehr who posted 18 points.

Menominee Wins in District Playoff game

The Menominee Maroons were able to get a solid District playoff victory last week over the Houghton boys who they defeated by way of a 69-53 final verdict.

The win wasn't easily obtained by the Maroons who had to fight hard to keep the first half lead in their hands. After the first two quarters the Maroons entered the locker room ahead by 32-27.

They were able to hold that lead over the last two quarters punching their ticket to another game in the MHSAA playoffs.

Houghton was led by Simonsen with 30 points and Salgado with 20 points. Wiley added three to the tally.

Menominee was led by Keagen Monroe with 17 points and Conway with 14 points. Dante Sartorelli finished the night with 12 while Barrette got 11 points.

Bulldogs See Door Slammed in Loss to Xavier

The Peshtigo Bulldogs saw their season come to end Friday night when they faced the Xavier boys in WIAA Regional Basketball. Xavier was not going to be denied the resounding win, taking down the Bulldogs 97-57.

The loss was tough to overcome and the first half saw it developed pretty quickly as the Bulldogs found themselves battling from way behind 40-21 at the first buzzer.

"If we knocked down all our free throws like they did it would have been a different game at halftime," said Peshtigo Head Coach Nate Motkowski. "Not getting all that we could at the line really changed the game. This problem haunted us earlier in the year and I had hoped we were past it but tonight we looked like the old Bulldogs from earlier this year."

The second half scoring differential was separated by another 20 points with Xavier outscoring the Bulldogs 57-36.

"There is no doubt that Xavier had some great guards," said Motkwoski. "Our freshman and sophomore guards haven't played in big games like this or faced really good defenders like Xavier has. They made too many early mistakes but I think they will learn a lot from this and benefit from the experience next year."

Peshtigo's final match of the season saw Cade Tackier have one of the best games of his season as the Peshtigo star shooter led his Bulldogs with a whopping 36 points. He also pulled down a team leading 10 rebounds while also having a stellar night at the line hitting 13 of his 17 attempts.

Following Tackier on the stat sheets was Adam Bauman with 10 points and Breyden Demmith with five.

Xavier was led by Trent Twombly with 17 points and John Bunks with 14 points. Douglas and Cal Mares both posted 10 points each for Xavier.

"I couldn't be more proud of Breyden and Cade," said Motkowski. "They have come a very long way over their high school careers. I remember when they were third graders in our youth camp and watching them develop through middle school. These guys have just been a great example for the program. Brendan played his heart out this year. Cade is one of the most unique players I have had the honor of coaching."
