Marines Win M&M Matchup; Bulldogs Blast Algoma

Issue Date: December 27, 2017

Marinette Scores Early

and Often to Stop

Menominee 84-37


The Menominee Maroons were no match for Marinette on Thursday, Dec. 21, with the Marines staying in control from before the opening tip.

Marinette started the game with a 3-0 deficit due to two technical fouls for dunking in pre-game warmups, but it didn't matter, as Marinette won 84-37.

"We were the aggressors and our guys stepped up," Marinette Coach Nick Semenas said. "We were worried about being lackadaisical and coming in here overconfident, and I was really happy with the way we responded."

One of the key aggressors was Walker Stroming, who finished with 17 points on a night of hard work that was a good representation of his time in the program so far.

"I was so happy with him. He's one of those kids that was on JV2 as a freshman and worked his way up," Semenas said. "It's just nice to see a kid who shows up and is a hard worker. He's got a blue-collar-type attitude about himself and it's just awesome to have someone like that and see them get rewarded on a night like this."

Though Stroming had a strong night, he was still only the Marines' third-highest scorer, as Jordan Wendt dropped 30 and Jake Poetzl had 18. Darius Jennings also got into double figures, as he finished with a total of 11 points in a bench role.

For the Marines, Keagan Monroe had 11 points and Nick Snyder scored 10, with the Marinette defense doing enough to keep Semenas happy.

"I was happy. There were some times when we had some lapses, but it's hard to complain about 37 points," Semenas said. "I was happy, but there's always things we can work on."



Niagara Wins

Close Battle with

Goodman/Pembine


Niagara's boys basketball team escaped with a narrow 49-46 win over Goodman-Pembine on Thursday, Dec. 21.

Niagara got a huge 22 points from Austin Hagerty, with 16 of them coming in the second half. Tristan DeJardin gave the Badgers 10, including eight in the second half as well.

The second half, in which the Badgers scored 30 of their 49 points, was a big improvement from the first half, Coach Jim Hoogland said.

"We did not play real well in the first half," he said. "We played much better in the second. We had too many turnovers and we got outrebounded but found a way to win."

In addition to the double-digit scoring from the team's two leaders, Alex Hagerty had seven and five players each scored two, including Ben Oratch, Landen Kaldor, Casey Antonissen, Anthony Hansen and Zak Prideaux.

"The boys played extremely hard all night," Hoogland said.

While Hoogland was pleased with his team's win, Goodman-Pembine Coach John Swick was happy with his team's performance as well.

"A loss is always disappointing, but we did play a more complete game," Swick said. "Both teams had leads, lost it and then fought back. We just came up short at the end."

He said his team talked about winning the little battles in a game, and he felt his team did that.

"We came out strong from the opening tip and played a much more efficient game. We played solid defense and protected the ball much better on offense," he said. "We did win those little battles and now it's a matter of finishing it at the end for the win."

Hagan Braaten scored 20 for the team, while Wyatt Marcy had 12 and Evan Metras had eight. Caleb Nelson and Jared Knutson had four and two points, respectively.



Improved Shooting

Pushes Peshtigo

Past Algoma


The Peshtigo Bulldogs took to the hardwood to soundly defeat the Algoma Wolves on Friday, Dec. 22, 79-26, in a game where 12 Peshtigo players got their name on the scoresheet.

The Bulldogs bothered the Wolves from the start with defense, holding the visitors to 10-34 shooting, and the Wolves didn't capitalize when they launched from downtown, making just 2 of 14 attempts for a 14 percent clip.

Part of Peshtigo's defensive strategy included a press defense, which helped the Bulldogs jump out to a 51-17 halftime lead and allowed the Bulldogs to finish with 13 steals on the night.

"We noticed that we thought their guards were a little inexperienced and we thought we could take advantage of that," Bulldogs Coach Nate Motkowski said. "We just needed to change things up. We needed to do something different and we thought that would kind of fire up our guys and get them going right away."

On the offensive end, the Bulldogs were led by Cade Tackmier, who shot 4-7 for 13 points, while adding four assists. Three other Bulldogs were in double figures, as Darren Dionne made all four of his shots for 11 points and both Cameron Noffke and Joe Sodini dumped in ten points.

The Bulldogs shot 50 percent from the field and 81 percent from the free throw line, making 18 of 22 attempts, a stark contrast from previous nights.

"I thought overall our guys came out with a lot of energy, a lot of positive attitude and a lot better shot selection in this game compared to past games," Motkowski said.

Trent Carriveau scored eight, while Nathan Goneau and Max Neumann each scored six. Neumann is the only senior on the team, which has led to some growing pains, but they weren't on display Friday night.

"It's been a rocky season for us but we expected that. We knew these guys were young," Motkowski said. "They don't have a lot of varsity experience so they're figuring it out. They're getting the game speed so we're learning to play and play together."

Mitchell VanVooren and Damon Jones each had five points, Travis Plym had three and Reid Marquardt scored two.

Algoma's leading scorer was Aidan Wallace, who shot 4-7 with 11 points, and was the only member of the squad scoring in double figures or shooting over 50 percent from the field.

Coleman

Slams Florence


The Coleman Cougar guys almost made it to triple digits Friday night when they took on the visiting Florence Bobcats for a 93-51 victory.

The Bobcats Evan Beaster led the way for the Bobcats with 23 points while Riley Hixon posted 15.

Austin Marquardt was the evenings top performer with 29 points which he obtained off seven two pointers, four three pointers and three of his four free throws.

Following Marquardt on the stat sheets was Cayden Bintz with 17 and Cole Woulf with 14.



Crivitz Moves

Past Laona/Wabeno


The Crivitz Wolverines secured a 66-51 home court win over the visiting Laona/Wabeno Rebels Monday night.

The Crivitz lead was built upon great games by Shane Bauer and Travis Giese. Bauer posted 20 while Giese chipped in 17.

The Rebels were led by Caley with 14 and Stefanski with 12.
