Borchert Scores 1,000, Wildcats Sneak Past Badgers

Lena took the trip up to Niagara Thursday night as the second-place Wildcats looked to keep pace in the M&O by taking on the Badgers.  In the first half, the two teams battled to a 36-31 halftime lead for Lena.  The Wildcats grinded out a win in the second half by a final score of 61-53. 

"We played much better defense in the second half.  Lena is one of the better teams in the conference and we played them toe to toe.  We just need to shoot better free throws and stop making crucial mistakes down the stretch," said Niagara Head Coach Jim Hoogland.

In the contest, Lena's Hunter Borchert became just the eighth player in Lena Wildcat history to score over 1,000 points.  Heading into the game, Borchert needed just seven points, which he easily surpassed and finished with 17.

Dalton Anderson and Connor Heise each paced the Wildcats with 18 points.  For Niagara, Ethan Blagec also finished with 18 points, Jacob Bousley added 13, and Austin Hagerty pitched in with eight.



Bulldogs Jump Out to Big Early Lead, Control Cougars

The conference leading Peshtigo Bulldogs played host to the Coleman Cougars Thursday night.  Peshtigo was red-hot from the field as they connected on more than half of their shots, 28 of 53, on their way to a 44-13 lead at halftime.  Cruise control was enabled in the second half as the final was 73-30.

Ryley Demmith led the Bulldogs with 19 points, Matt Larsen pitched in with 17 points, Joey Bradley added 16, and Nathan Goneau finished with six.

For the Cougars, Cole Woulf and Austin Tachick each paced the offense with 11 points, Cody Van Hoff added four and Austin Marquardt and Peyton Nelson each scored two.



Peshtigo Too Much for Niagara

The Niagara Badgers took to the road Friday night as they took on the Bulldogs of Peshtigo.  After battling toe to toe with the M&O-leading Bulldogs for the first nine minutes, Peshtigo used their tenacious defense to set them apart.  A 37-21 halftime lead for Peshtigo, turned into a 67-46 victory in the second half.

"We had a couple different lineups tonight, we had younger guys mixed in with our starters, and I thought they played well.  That's what we need, we had some guys in foul trouble, some guys were probably tired from the busy week, but we had young guys step up and play well.  Everyone played well," Peshtigo Head Coach Nate Motkowski said of the win.

Every time Peshtigo looked to pull away, Niagara had an answer.  Ethan Blagec connected on a layup to bring the lead down to 12-10.  Peshtigo's Cameron Noffke answered with a layup of his own, but Blagec came right back with a mid-range jumper, making the score 14-12 with 9:45 left.  The Bulldogs then ramped up the defense which helped lead to an 8-0 run.  Noffke, Max Neumann, Ryley Demmith and Trent Carriveau each sank baskets to push the advantage to 22-12.  Blagec drilled a three to end the run, but another 6-0 Peshtigo run saw the lead swell to 30-17.  Spencer Hagerty connected on a mid-range jumper for the Badgers trimming the lead to 32-21.  In the final 1:28 of the half, a free throw and layup from Joey Bradley along with a layup from Nathan Goneau extended the halftime lead to 37-21.

The second half saw more of the same, every time Niagara scored, Peshtigo answered with a run.  Niagara's Kalvin Jeffords sank one of two attempts at the charity stripe to open the half.  Demmith responded with a hook shot in the lane and Bradley added a layup.  Matt Larsen joined in on the action with a three-pointer that saw the Peshtigo lead extend to 46-26.  Blagec and Bousley gave the Badgers some life with back-to-back baskets, but again the Bulldogs responded with a 16-4 run that seemed to ice the game.  The run saw the lead extend to 65-36, Peshtigo went on to take a 67-46 victory.

No Bulldog scorer had double-digit points on the night.  Coach Motkowski spoke to how important that is for Peshtigo, "That's what you need to make a deep run in March. We're still extending our bench and learning which guys can step up and play.  For us to be able to go nine deep is really important because anything can happen, a guy can go out like Ryley [Demmith] tonight, or some guys get in foul trouble, so we have to be able to have a deep bench."

Peshtigo was led by Cameron Noffke and Joey Bradley with nine points, Ryley Demmith, Max Neumann and Justin Thill each scored eight, Nathan Goneau added seven and Cole Tackmier finished with six.

Ethan Blagec scored a game-high 20 points for the Badgers, Spencer Hagerty pitched in with 10 and Jacob Bousley finished with nine.



Suring Keeps Pace in M&O, Beats Wausaukee

Locked in a tie with the Lena Wildcats for second-place in the M&O conference, the Suring Eagles hosted the Wausaukee Rangers Thursday evening.  John Christensen, Chris Geniesse, and Ryan Mahoney soared to 15 points each for the Eagles, on their way to a 63-27 shellacking of the Rangers.

Along with the 15 points each from Christensen, Geniesse and Mahoney, Scout Gerndt added five, and Mitch Stegeman added three.  All ten Suring players to enter the game scored on the evening.

Brandon Shigouri paced the Rangers with 10 points, Matt Delfosse pitched in with nine, Cody Renikow finished with four and Tony Rollo and Sawyer Dunlap each scored two.
