Peshtigo's Defense Leads to Win Over Marinette

Issue Date: December 9, 2020

The Peshtigo Bulldogs can claim hardwood superiority over the neighboring Marinette Marines for at least the next year.

Peshtigo's boys basketball team defeated Marinette last Tuesday in the teams' season opener, and on Saturday, the Peshtigo girls defeated the Marines by a 58-32 tally.

Marinette scored the first two points of the day and held Peshtigo from scoring early, but that success was short-lived, as Peshtigo went on a 22-2 run to take a 22-4 lead with 7:45 to go in the first half.

By halftime, the Bulldogs held a 34-15 lead behind a diverse offensive attack. Sydney Lund had 10 points in the first half, while Allison Peters and Jaci Tonn had seven apiece.

Peshtigo wouldn't score a second-half field goal until there was 11:40 on the clock in the second half, but it was the Peshtigo defense that would lead to a victory.

Marinette scored just two field goals and six points in that time period, and a couple of Peshtigo steals got the offense jump started again.

"Sydney Lund and Grace Wickman I think did a lot of that. They were overplaying and being aggressive which led to some easy baskets. That was important," Peshtigo coach Bruce Parkovich said, also crediting his team with rebounding and outlet passes that led to easy buckets.

No Marinette player scored more than eight against a lockdown Bulldogs defense. Samantha Pieper and Hannah Chenier had eight apiece for the Marines. Marinette was playing its third game in five days.

Marinette coach Zac Barker said his team was "getting a little tired, and I think you could tell," saying, "Some of our cuts weren't as crisp as they should be or were the last two games previous this week. Besides that, Peshtigo plays aggressive defense, so if we're slow with ball movement or slow with cutting, they're taking advantage of it. I think that's probably the biggest thing that happened early in the game, how they got out to their lead."

Barker would say that his team's handling of the ball improved in the second half. Unfortunately for the Marines, Peshtigo was already out to a large lead. When the lead got down to 14, Peshtigo caused three turnovers in quick succession to gain the momentum back.

For Peshtigo, Peters would finish with a game-high 13, while Tonn and Lund had 12 apiece. Peters provided a big spark off the bench.

"Our bench scored 24 points out of the 58 so that was nice to see," Parkovich said. "I never would have thought that, but (Peters) was open and she's a nice shooter, so we got some nice scoring off the bench, which hopefully is going to carry over to other games we have."

Coleman Girls Take Win Over Wausaukee

The Coleman Cougar girls had a very nice night on the courts Monday night as they shellacked the Wausaukee Rangers 68-14.

Coleman's Sydney List fired in four three pointers in the first half helping her team to a 45-8 first half readout.

By games end the Cougars' Cameron Compe posted a game leading 16 points while List followed up with 15 points.Aubrey Bintz added 10 to the tally.

Wausaukee was led by S. Luccarini with seven points and M. Schaal with three points.Gillett Comes Away With Overtime Win Against Niagara

The Gillett Tigers had winning night last Monday evening when they fought off the Niagara Badgers 56-47.

The win saw the Tigers post just slightly more than the Badgers over the opening half 29-25.

Gillett head coach Justin Dual had this to say about the loss of Karissa Schaal early on, "For the team to gut out a win like that against a team that was picked pretty high in the conference, a lot of good things came out it."

Niagara returned fire over the second half, outscoring the Tigers 20-16 making the score 45-45 at the end of regulation. In the extra period Maci Franti hit a three pointer for the Tigers to put them up by three as time ticked down the Badgers were forced to foul and the Tigers made some clutch free throws ending the game 53-47.

Niagara's head coach Karl Lameroux made this comment about the days play, "I am really happy with our performance. I am disappointed we lost of course, but I am very pleased with the effort. We're young and we learned a lot."

Alyssa Cretton led the Badgers with a game high 20 points while being followed by Josie Rock who posted 13 points. Bailey Pearson needed the evening with eight points.

Gillett's Carleigh Kaczmarek got 15 points while Maci Franti had 13. Aliana Herzog added 10. Ryann Wagner sunk a triple helping of threes for 9 on the night.

Stockbridge Defeats Lena

The Stockbridge girls took a resounding win over the Lena Wildcats last week when they shot their way to a 55-27 victory over the Wildcats.

Stockbridge took the lead quickly and never looked back as they held the aged going into the intermission 24-13.

The second half only got worse for the Wildcats who fell behind a 31-14 second half effort.

Lena was led by Rabas with seven points and McNurlen with six. Brooks added five.

Stockbridge's LeGault led all scorers with 21 points while Kramp added on 16.

Gillett Loses to New Lutheran By One Point

The Gillett Tigers posted a hard fought loss last Friday, falling in the final tally 42-41.

The game was close from start to finish as was bore out in the score sheets where the Two were knotted up at the half 25-25.

The difference came in the second half where the NEW Lutheran girls broke the deadlock by outdoing the Tigers 17-16 in the second half tally.

Gillett did have the evening top scorer in Aubrey DeBauch who fired in 22 points to lead her team. Krissa Schaal got eight points while Macy Franti added on seven to the tally.

NEW's Bailey Scholz finished with 14 points while Steph Frappy got 12. Mattie Zimmer added eight points.

Suring Falls To Coleman

The Suring Eagles took a loss to the Coleman Cougars last week Falling behind 46-33.

After a buzzer beater by Suring's Kate Mahoney the Eagles trailed by a a slight margin 21-14.

"We had pretty outstanding defense tonight," said Coleman head coach Tod Olsen . "We've emphasized from day one our stong point is our defense. Our shooting is going to get better. Our offense is running great we just have to pride ourself on our defense."

During the second half the Eagles fought back a bit to only trail the Cougars by five points. but thats as close as they could get with foul troubles and shots not going making the difference.

"We found an offense that they liked to run," said Olsen. "They are having fun with it and doing a great job top to bottom from number one to number 10. Last game in Niagara we got out rebounded so we epmhazied that in practice. and worked on it quite a bit. We are continuing g to get better."

Suring's Mahoney finished with nine points while Stelzer got eight. Sleeter finished with seven.

"We made a lot of mistakes and battled the whole game," said Mitch Woulf. "They were a little more physical than us and got more rebounds. Our girls never gave up and made a couple of big baskets. We had some foul troubles late but they stayed smart and aggressive to narrow the game to three points. this loss will not define our season."

Coleman's Aubrey Bintz tacked on 14 points while Cameron Compe added up 12.

Lund/Wickman Lead Peshtigo Past Gibraltar

Sydney Lund filled the bucket with 20 points and Grace Wickman drilled the game-winning shot to beat Gibraltar 44-42 on Monday.

With seconds to play, Wickman scored her second basket of the game, a three-pointer, to give Peshtigo the lead.

Gibraltar would get a final shot, but the three-pointer would hit the front of the iron and rim out. The shot left Karlee Kita's hands just as the backboard lit up and the shot would have counted, as the officials had raised a hand to signal the shot was off.

Were it not for Wickman's late-game heroics, Sydney Lund would have been the game's top story, as she poured in 20 points, including 13 in the first half, to lead Peshtigo offensively.

Wickman finished with six points and Emma Gilligan added eight for the Bulldogs, who trailed 28-26 at half before putting the clamps on defensively and allowing just 14 points in the entire second half.
