Peshtigo Nips Crivitz 36-35 in Late Game Push

Issue Date: December 20, 2017

Peshtigo Pulls Ahead Late to Nip Crivitz 36-35

The Peshtigo Bulldogs girls' basketball team beat the Crivitz Wolverines on Tuesday, Dec. 19, escaping with a 36-35 come-from-behind win over their former M&O Conference rivals.

Crivitz led 20-18 at half, with Sianna Guns entering double figures by half-time and finishing with 17 to lead all scorers. Chloe Gruszynski had 14 as well, while Lexi Oyer and Taylor Bemis had a bucket apiece.

"I don't think anybody's going to touch them," Peshtigo Coach Bruce Parkovich said of the Wolverines, regarding M&O Conference play.

The Bulldogs were led by Emma Fredrickson, as the senior scored 16 points, including 10 in the second half.

"Emma came through for us," Parkovich said. "We got her in the post and she made some nice shots."

Senior Madi Martin added 11 of her own, Senior Shae Tonn had four and Senior Hannah Swanson made a first-half three-pointer. Sidney Gullicksen added a second-half bucket, the only points scored by a non-senior for the Bulldogs.

Parkovich said the seniors on the team didn't want to fall to Crivitz in their final season, saying, "They said "we don't want to lose to them.' That's the way they put it, so they really wanted to work hard."

It wasn't the offense that kept Peshtigo in the game, however. "Our adage was before the game, I said we have to stay in the game with our defense and win it with our offense at the end and that's exactly what we did," Parkovich said. "We hung in there and we got a couple turnovers."

The Wolverines played a zone defense to help stifle the Bulldogs for the majority of the game. "We had some nice outside shots but they just didn't fall," Parkovich said.

The win wasn't the Bulldogs' only hard-fought win of the week, as they took down Algoma, 55-52 on Thursday, Dec. 14. Swanson had 15 points on five made three-pointers to lead the Peshtigo scorers. Alexss DeBriyn added 14, going 4-7 at the free throw line, Fredrickson scored 10 and Tonn had eight. The Bulldogs trailed by four at the half, but they scored 32 points in the second half to escape with a win.



Suring Adds Win Over Goodman-Pembine

The Suring Eagles hosted the Goodman-Pembine Patriots Tuesday night for a non-conference contest that placed the Eagles on top 54-40 after two halves of play.

Out of the gates the Patriots looked to be the team that wanted it more as Katelyn Morrison worked her way to 18 first half points, helping to bring her team to a 31-26 lead at the half.

Suring's Kyle Stelzer and Paige Krueger stayed tough for the Eagles all game long as the two combined for 18 first half points while adding on eight a piece in the second half.

But a second half turn around would be the deciding factor in this one as the Eagles returned fire to turn the lead on its head thanks to a 28-9 second half differential.

Morrison earned the evenings top scorer spot with 22. 12 of those points were obtained from the free throw line in a 12 of 16 showing. Katelyn Nelson and Rachel Braaten both posted five points.

Suring's Krueger led the way with 18 points. Stelzer registered 15 points while Linzy Runge got seven.



Badgers Bounce Bobcats

The Niagara Badgers put away the visiting Florence Bobcats Monday night 50-27.

Niagara quickly found themselves ahead by 10 points thanks to some good shooting by Maddie West and famine Racine.

By the end of the game Racine was the game's top scorer with 19 points while West followed her with a nice 16 point push. Ki'Ercidy Hannah worked the paint for seven Badger points.

Florence's Jordan Springer along with Larson led the way for the Florence girls with eight points each.



Crivitz and Niagara Battle for M&O Supremacy

The Crivitz Wolverines took the hour ride north to Niagara for an M&O showdown that held a lot of baring on the way the rest of the season could turn out. The result of this match up of the M&O's best? Crivitz on top in a low scoring game 33-22.

The defensive battle was highlighted in the first half when Niagara held some of Crivitz's best at bay. That doesn't mean that those Crivitz scorers were stopped completely. That job is near impossible considering the talent rich bench Crivitz sports this year.

Over the first half Chloe Gruszynski fired in a three while getting in close for three more buckets. Lexi Over continued to prove her long range prowess with two first half behind the arc shots.

Gruszynski made a big difference during the second half where she was sent to the line seven time for four completed shots.

Niagara's Jasmine Racine posted 11 for her Badgers while Cassie Gill and Ki'Ericidy Hannah both tallied four points.



Thunderhawks Bring The Boom To Lena

The Oneida Nation Thunderhawks proved to be too much for the Lena Wildcats to wrangle in Monday night as they fell to the invading Thunderhawks 64-43.

Oneida's M'k Ackley went wild bagging two threes, six twos and five of her five free throws for a 23 point total on the day, enough for top scoring honors.

She was followed by teammate Jacobs with 12 points and Yehli Rodriguez with nine.

Lena's Ally Demmith, who has proved to be one of the conference top scorers, led her team with 19 points. Brianna Sylvester secured eight for her Wildcats while Herald got seven.



Cougars Cap off Battle With Cavvies

The Coleman Cougars and St. Thomas Aquinas Cavaliers put on a show Friday night as they kept it close throughout. Coleman came out on top 48-41.

Both halves of play were highly competitive with neither team allowing a large lead to be built.

Coleman's Hailey Ziemer fired in a couple three pointers over the first while Kyla Manning and Cameron Compe both found their way to a three point bucket and a two pointer, helping to build a 29-23 halftime lead.

STAA's Alexa Pristelski also looked extremely accurate over the first as she piled on a triple helping of three pointers and a two point field goal.

The second half scoring was just about as close as it could get as the Cougars outscored the Cavies 19-18.

Over that second half Coleman's Kailey Klimek was perfect at the free throw line four for four.

Pristelski was the game's top performer with 16 points while teammate Hallie Beranek got nine for her Cavvies. Millie Benson posted eight.

Coleman was led by Ziemer with 13 points, Compe with 12 and Maria Nowak with eight points.



Tigers Too Much For Eagles

The Gillett Tigers are eyeing the penthouse of the M&O and have been piling up wins to pay the bill. Last Friday night they added another win to their balance as they sent the home court Eagles packing with 68-37 readout.

Though the deficit was huge it doesn't mean Suring didn't show a bit of a flash in the pan as Paige Krueger piled on 17 points for her Eagles almost enough for the game's top scorer slot which was claimed by Gillett's Taylor Yonker with 18 points.

A balanced attack by the Tigers proved to be the better game plan as nearly everyone on the bench got involved.

Kaitlynn Schaal led the way for the Tigers with 18 points while Kaitlynn Schaal chipped in 13 followed by Sydney Young with eight. What was most impressive about the stat sheets was how Gillett got everyone involved. Aubrey DeBaunch, Faith Sorlie, Karissa Schaal and Willow Pecha all found a way to do their part as they each posted five points a apiece.

Suring was led by Krueger with 17, Wylee VanBellinger with six and Kylee Smith with six as well.



Marinette Overpowered By Lux-Casco

The Marinette Marine girls were no match for the Luxembourg-Caso Spartans Thursday night as the Spartans shellacked the Marines for a 67-32 win in Marinette's P.F. Neverman gym.

Marinette never was unable to hold ace with the quick hitting Spartans who entered the locker room firmly in the lead 39-11.

Maddie Schultz led the way for the Marines with 15 points and was followed by McKenzie Bebo with nine.

Lux-Casco's Schiltz took top scoring honors with 22 points.



Menominee Takes Down Stephenson

The Menominee Maroon girls took hold of the Stephenson Eagles Thursday night and slammed them down by way of a 56-37 scoring differential.

The Maroons were led by the evening's top scorer Jaida Lesperance who bagged 23 points. Barrette posted 18.
