Bulldogs Collar Wolverines in Non-Conference Action

Issue Date: December 29, 2020

"Most nights, you give up 40 points, you're going to win the basketball game."

Peshtigo Bulldogs coach Jason Boucher was happy with his team's defensive performance Monday in a 61-40 win over the Crivitz Wolverines.

After some poor defensive performances in their first five games of the season, the Bulldogs were locked in defensively on Monday.

The Bulldogs really didn't pull away in the first half, as the teams each struggled a bit in the opening minutes, Halfway through the period, it was 14-9 in favor of Peshtigo when Crivitz switched to a 1-3-1 zone. Peshtigo would get a couple of buckets and stretch a lead out to 26-16 at the half, but it was still very much a winnable game for Crivitz when the teams came back onto the floor for the second half.

One number that stuck out from the first half was 0-8, the Wolverines' total from the free throw line in the first half. They would shoot 7-for-15 in the second half to finish with a 30% clip for the game.

Peshtigo pulled out to 39-22 on a bucket from Landon Lemke with under 15 to play, and the Bulldogs would hang on to win comfortably.

Crivitz shot 15-for-53 from the field and 3-for-14 from deep to go along with the team's ugly free-throw total.

Another place Peshtigo dominated the game was on the boards. The Bulldogs grabbed 46 rebounds to the Wolverines' 16. Peshtigo grabbed 16 offensive rebounds alone.

One player Boucher would credit for his team's defensive toughness and success on the boards was Collin Engman. The big man would go 0-for-5 in the game and score just one point, but his 14 rebounds nearly matched the Wolverines' entire total as a team. He also blocked two shots and had one steal.

"It always helps having Collin down there, the big guy," Boucher said. "He can rebound the basketball and that's a big enforcer down there. If one of our guys gets beat, he's down there to block shots."

And after a difficult start to Boucher's first season as the Bulldogs' head coach, it's good to be back in the win column.

"It's always nice to win the basketball game," Boucher said, saying he was proud of his team. "We've been giving up way too many points the first five games of the year and we've been emphasizing that in practice about stopping our guys, keeping them in front and actually contesting shots without fouling."

Adam Bauman scored 12 points to lead the Bulldogs. Christian Boyle and Lemke had 10 apiece.

For Crivitz, Eian Baumann scored a game-high 16 on 6-for-17 shooting. Sean Christiansen scored nine.



Wausaukee and Gillett Fight to End in Shootout

The Wausaukee Ranger boys and the Gillett Tigers were on point in last weeks showdown that saw the Rangers win 62-57.

The high scoring affair was a close battle from start to finish with the two teams tied at the half 26-26. The difference came in the second frame where the Rangers shot their way to a 36 point tally while clamping down defensively to hold the Tigers at 31 points.

Wausaukee's Brenden Versaskas was the Rangers top scorer with 18 points. He was followed by Dominick Brunette with 14 points and Corey Boesen with eight points.

Gillett's Ben Matczak was the evenings top performer with 25 points. Brandon DeBauch added up 14 points while Aydin Franti chipped in 11 points.



Lena Takes Big Win Over Wausaukee

The Lena Wildcats were the victors in Monday night's match up with the Rangers of Wausaukee. The home court Wildcats took the Holiday Tournament win over Wausaukee 61-42.

The win marks one victory in the multiple school tournament taking place at Lena. The large crowd in attendance got to witness some good basketball from the field of teams from across northeast Wisconsin and the Green Bay area.

Wausaukee kept pace with the Wildcats over the first but were behind just a bit at the buzzer 26-22.

It was the second half where Lena distinguished themselves with a 35 point tally while holding the Rangers to 20 points.

Max Beyer had a lot to do with the great second half where he piled in 16 points.

Bayer was the nights top scorer with 27 points. Jacob Belongia chipped in nine to the Wildcat effort while teammate Ralph Commins added up 11 points.

Wausaukee's Corey Boesen finished the night with 16 points while Danny Suennen added up nine points. Dominic Brunette got five points.



Bulldogs Lose Lead Late, Fall to Storm 54-51

On paper, the Peshtigo Bulldogs look like they did enough to defeat Kewaunee, but when the dust settled, it was Kewaunee with a 54-51 win, with free throws and turnovers writing the story of the game.

Peshtigo shot 20-53 (37%) from the field, 7% better than Kewaunee's 18-59, making 4-of-17 from three-point land to Kewaunee's 4-for-21. Kewaunee would make 14 free throws to Peshtigo's 10, however, creating more shooting opportunities despite Peshtigo winning the rebounding battle 34-26.

Peshtigo would also give up 10 turnovers leading to nine points. The Bulldogs would not score off a turnover.

Offensively, Peshtigo struggled against Kewaunee's sustained defensive pressure, Bulldogs coach Jason Boucher said, adding that the team forced shots throughout the game, even when the Bulldogs had open looks.

"When we do have open shots, we don't even take our time. I think the pressure got to our guys tonight," Boucher said. "When we actually do spread the floor and take our time, we're a pretty good offensive team. When we move and we cut and screen, we're pretty good, we just go in too long of spurts where we make one pass and jack it up. We have to get better at being more disciplined on offense and realize there is no shot clock in high school."

Boucher gave Kewaunee credit, saying, "they hounded us all night," which was evident in the 22-18 scoreline at the halftime break.

Landon Lemke led the Bulldogs with 14 points on 5-of-16 shooting and seven rebounds. Christian Boyle had 10 points on 4-of-9 shooting with eight rebounds and six assists.

Boucher said Will McMahon was a bright spot on an otherwise lackluster night. McMahon didn't pack the stat sheet, scoring just four points with three rebounds, but he showed the coaches something in his opportunity.

"Will did an excellent job for us tonight," Boucher said. "He plays hard and he does exactly what the coaches ask of him and the way he played tonight shows that he's ready to play at this level and going forward he'll probably get more minutes."

Kewaunee's Sawyer Pribek led the team with 14 points. Benjamin Heim had 11 and Alexander Rohr scored 10.



Blue Devils Bounce Blazers With Big First Half

The Oconto Blue Devils defeated NEW Lutheran by a 64-44 score on Friday night.

The Blue Devils led 38-19 at halftime and never looked like losing, with Josh Delzer and Caleb Moe leading the way with 17 and 16 points, respectively. Kadin Baxter and Luke Krueger had eight apiece and Josh Woller scored seven.

Oconto made 16 of 18 free throws on the night.

NEW Lutheran's Tristian Lynch had nearly half his team's points with a 21-point total. Marshal Bukowski scored eight.



Coleman Wins Matchup With Wittenberg-Birnamwood

The Coleman Cougars have an identity. Whether they're playing football, basketball or anything else, they know what they're about. Hard-nosed, tough defense is at the center of that.

The Cougars held Wittenberg-Birnamwood to 43 points on Tuesday, including just 17 in the first half, on the way to a 51-43 victory.

Coleman coach Tim Forner said his team's focus at the start of every practice is defense.

"We're built to play defense first, we're defensive-minded," he said. "We never change that. Our mindset is defensive from the get-go against whoever we play, doesn't matter. We have to win that end of it and the rebounding side of it."

Just five players scored for Wittenberg-Birnamwood in the game.

Where Coleman perhaps struggled a bit was on the offensive side of the ball, with Forner referencing unforced turnovers and his team trying to push the issue too much, calling them "things that aren't characteristic of what our team can do," but saying, "it showed itself tonight and we were lucky enough to get out of here with a W."

Wittenberg-Birnamwood ran a zone defense for much of the game, which Forner said his team needs to work on going forward, as the team spent too long looking for "too much of a perfect move, too much of a pass instead of finishing strong," he said.

Regardless, Coleman got the win.

Tieg Sadowski scored a game-high 14 points for Coleman, Cayden Bintz had 11 and Zach Zablocki scored 10. Logan Zeitler had eight as well.
