Coleman and Oconto To Face Off in Regional Final

Issue Date: June 2, 2022

Cougars Shutout

Bulldogs in second

Round of Regional

Matchup


The Coleman Cougars played well in every aspect of the game of baseball Tuesday to win a regional game with over Peshtigo, 7-0.

The Cougars ran wild on the basepaths, out-hit Peshtigo 11-2, played error-free baseball, and Cougars hurler Ray Lemieux was nearly unhittable.

After the Bulldogs went down 1-2-3 in the top of the first, Will Bieber singled to lead off the Cougars' half of the inning. He stole second and third, and scored on a ground out to third.

Again, Lemieux set down Peshtigo 1-2-3, this time on three swinging strikeouts.

In the second, Karson Casper singled to lead off the inning. And once again, the Cougar baserunner took off, stealing second and third. Joe Olsen singled him in, then scored on a double by Trent Mongin to make it 3-0.

The Bulldogs knew the Cougars would try to run, but they weren't able to make the plays to stop it.

"That's Coleman 101. We knew what we were getting," Peshtigo coach Neal Henrigillis said. "To be honest, our pitchers did a pretty good job. Jake Berth started, and Jake did a pretty good job of holding guys on. If we had made a couple better throws over to first on pickoffs, I think we would have had them. We had them a couple times leaning, and unfortunately we didn't get them. We knew what was coming, we knew the playbook. Peshtigo-Coleman, it's an old M&O matchup, so we knew what we were going to get, it's just who was going to execute better, and unfortunately we just weren't as sharp as we needed to be."

An error made it 4-0 in the third, and Coleman added a few runs in the fifth with the help of more errors. Three singles in the bottom of the sixth pretty ended the game.

The Bulldogs committed five errors in the game, while the Cougars were faultless in the field behind Lemieux, who struck out 10 hitters over seven innings, allowing just two hits.

In addition to his pitching, he also went 3-4 with two runs scored and two RBIs at the dish. Bieber was 2-4 with two runs, and Olsen was 1-3 with a run and an RBI. Mongin was 2-3 with a run and an RBI.

"We were prepared for it. We knew what we were doing getting into it, and the boys did an excellent job," Coleman coach Kent Casper said. "You look at everything, this is the way to play a baseball game. We played great defense, hitting, pitching. You couldn't ask for better."

The Cougars hadn't played a baseball game in 12 days after a rainout last Wednesday and a first-round bye in the playoffs, but they didn't show any signs of rust.

"They came ready to play today, and that's what we're looking for," coach Casper said. "Going that long, you didn't know where we were going to be. Even though we're practicing, that's not the same as playing the game, but they came through."

Berth, coming off a dazzling seven-inning shutout performance in the first round against Bonduel, ended up with the loss, allowing four runs (three earned) in three innings. Landon Beyer and Landon Lemke combined for the final three frames, each allowing one earned run.

Trevor Walters and Will Boettcher had Peshtigo's lone hits.

Coleman faces No. 2 Oconto at home on Wednesday for the regional title, while the Bulldogs' season comes to an end.



Wolverines Win

Regional Match Up

Over Gillett/Suring


Crivitz tallied 15 runs to end things early in Division 3 regional play on Thursday against Gillett/Suring.

The Wolverines scored one run in the first inning, four in the second, and one in the third, leading 6-1 after three. The fourth inning was the biggest for Crivitz, with nine runs coming in the frame.

For Gillett/Suring, Taron Haak was 1-3 with an RBI. Austin VandeCorput scored a run and Carter Whisman was 1-2.

Haark took the loss, allowing 15 runs (seven earned) on 15 hits and three walks. He struck out five batters.

The Wolverines had eight different players join the hit parade, including five with multiple hits. Eli Gruszynski was 3-4 with two runs and two RBIs, Dillan Gehm went 2-3 with three RBIs and three runs, Chad Schroeder was 3-4 with a run and three RBIs, and Logan Goltz was 2-3 with three runs and an RBI. Seth Sellen went 2-3 with one run and one RBI. Brady Tadisch was 1-3 with two runs scored and an RBI.

Sean Christiansen got the win, spinning five innings of one-run ball. He allowed just two hits and walked three. He struck out seven.



Oconto Takes Down

Crivitz in Regional Semi


The Oconto Blue Devils posted a Regional Semi Final Win over the Crivitz Wolverines Tuesday evening, there by advancing the Blue Devils to the Regional final match up with the Coleman cougars.

Oconto got an early lead going with two opening frame runs before the Wolverines responded with three of their own in the top of the second inning.

Oconto knotted it up in the bottom half of the frame with one run.

The tough Wolverines again found themselves in front with a two run third, holding the slight edge 5-3.

During the bottom of the fourth Oconto narrowed the lead by one before Crivitz fended them off with one in the top of the fifth.

But that was it for the Wolverine run machine as the Blue Devils stayed strong with one run in the bottom of the fifth and two in the closing frame for the 7-6 win.

Oconto's Devon Bostwick screed the mound win for the Blue Devils allowing one hit and three walks while striking out one over his two and one third innings.

Jacob Behrendt got saddled with the loss for the Wolverines allowing two hits, two earned runs and one walk over his one and two thirds innings. He also struck out one would be hitter.

At the plate the Wolverines' Eli Gruszynski was perfect in his three at bats getting two RBIs to boot.

Oconto's Ethan Wusterbarth led the scoring attack with two hits in his four at bats while recording two runs and two RBIs.



Oconto Advances Over

Menominee Indian


Conner Christensen fired a five-inning no hitter to help the Oconto Blue Devils beat Menominee Indian in the first round of regionals on Thursday.

He walked two batters and struck out eight. His offense gave him early run support, starting with a solo home run from Luke Krueger to start a five-run first inning for the Blue Devils.

Alex Fuller was 3-3 with two RBIs, Ethan Wusterbarth went 2-2 with a walk, a triple, and two RBIs, Rylie Anderson went 2-3 with a double and two RBIs, and Brady Shallow was 2-3 with an RBI.

No. 2 Oconto hosted No. 3 Crivitz, which beat Gillett/Suring 15-1 in the first round, for a regional duel on Tuesday afternoon.



Rangers Win

Regional Over STAA


Division 4 No. 2 seed Wausaukee handled its business in a 9-2 regional win over Saint Thomas Aquinas Academy on Thursday.

The Rangers fell behind the seventh-seeded Cavaliers 1-0 in the top of the first inning of Thursday's first round action when Teagan Anderson scored on a passed ball, but they took the lead quickly with two runs in the bottom of the first. Kamden Stumbris hit a sacrifice fly and Prestin Brunette singled to left to score Will Koester.

A hit batter with the bases loaded made it 3-1 in the third, and Wausaukee scored three runs in the fifth. Two came on passed balls and another was the result of a dropped third strike.

Wausaukee put its nine runs across with only four hits, as five errors, five waks, and eight hit batters plagued the Cavaliers.

Anderson took the loss. He went 4.1 innings, allowing five runs (one earned) on three hits and three walks. He struck out 10 Rangers. Hunter Piasecki finished the game with 1.2 innings of four-run ball. One run was earned.

Brunette was 2-3 with two runs and one RBI. Kayden Suennen went 1-3 with two RBIs, and Koester was 1-3 with two RBIs.

Connor Schroeder was the Rangers pitcher. Before hitting his 100-pitch limit, he struck out 10 batters over six innings, allowing two unearned runs on one hit and four walks. Koester closed the door with a scoreless seventh.

Anderson had STAA's only hit, also walking and scoring a run.

With the win, No. 2 Wausaukee moved on to host No. 3 Goodman/Pembine on Tuesday.



Patriots Pounce on

Ranger Errors

in Regional


Goodman-Pembine held Wausaukee to just two hits and capitalized on six Ranger errors to win a regional title Tuesday.

The Patriots scored one run each in the third and fourth innings, both on errors. It will also sting for Wausaukee that both run-scoring errors came with two outs in the inning. Jacob Kessel and Ryan Ehlert scored the runs.

Boone Larison was 1-2 for G-P, while Kessel and Kevin Streitzel were both 1-3.

Streitzel got the save, recording the final two outs after Ryan Erickson went 6.1 strong, allowing one hit and three walks. Erickson struck out 12 Rangers in the game.

For Wausaukee, Connor Schroeder pitched all seven innings and was the hard-luck loser. He allowed two unearned runs on five hits and two walks. He struck out nine.

He also had one of two Wausaukee hits. Nathan Shaw had the other.



Marines Defeat

Clintonville 7-3 at

Regional Semi


Marinette pulled away from Clintonville late in a 7-3 regional win over the Truckers on Thursday.

In the bottom of the sixth inning, No. 4 Clintonville tied the game on a Kade Rosenow single. That was the third of three runs the team scored in the frame, with RBIs from Kaleb Rath and Rosenow.

Fifth-seeded Marinette scored its first run in the top of the seventh via the error and went on to push four runs across and take a 7-3 advantage.

Jack Yeager took the loss for Clintonville.

The win earned Marinette an outing with top-seeded Shawano on Wednesday. It was a game the Marines would ultimately lose, though they played the Hawks very tough, losing 6-5.



Bulldogs Best Bears

Behind Berths

Scoreless Outing


Senior Jake Berth spun a seven-inning gem and freshman Caleb Klimek provided the game-winning RBI in the fourth to propel Peshtigo to a 1-0 regional win over Bonduel on Thursday.

The fifth-seeded Bulldogs and fourth-seeded Bears both struggled to generate offense in the game, as Berth and Bonduel pitcher Cade Johnson were nearly unhittable in the game. The two teams combined for just five hits in the contest.

Peshtigo was hitless until the fourth. In the fourth, leadoff hitter Landon Lemke walked and stole second. After a strikeout from the next hitter, Klimek singled in Lemke to give the Bulldogs a lead.

That would be enough for Berth.

He danced out of trouble in the fourth with a groundout to the pitcher and a strikeout looking after a one-out double caused a threat.

He didn't allow a baserunner in any of the next three innings and finished with five strikeouts, two hits, and no walks over seven nearly perfect innings.

Peshtigo coach Neal Henrigillis was thrilled with his entire team, from the dugout to the mound.

"I couldn't be happier by the way our guys were mentally engaged the entire game. Our dugout was loud, energetic, but positive and always cheering for our guys. They represented our program in a positive way," Henrigillis said. "We had a full spectrum game. A senior highlight, Jake Berth threw his best game of the year. A freshman, Caleb Klimek, had the go ahead hit in the 4th inning. It was fun to see that wide range of guys contribute to a team win."
