Marines Top Bulldogs In Double OT

Issue Date: November 29, 2018

Marines Split a Pair of Games in Oshkosh

The Marinette Marines took one of two at Oshkosh North over the weekend in what was a big weekend for two players.

The Marines opened with a 74-63 loss to Madison East. The Marines led by two at the half, 34-32, but Madison East really turned things on in the second half to get the 11-point victory.

Marinette was led by Jake Poetzl, who scored 27 on the night. Matt Wagner posted 20. Poetzl's 27 brought him within a dozen points of becoming the all-time leading scorer in Marines history.

While the second half against Madison East wasn't what the Marines were hoping for, they certainly righted that wrong in the second game of the day in Oshkosh and Poetzl earned his milestone.

He scored exactly 12 points, going 5-of-8 at the free-throw line in the Marines' 89-58 win.

It was Poetzl's day, but Wagner was the shining star for those unfamiliar with the backstory.

He went 8-of-12 from downtown and scored 42 points, grabbing 12 rebounds along the way. He was 6-of-6 from the free throw line as well.

Marinette led 38-28 at the half and left little doubt with a 51-point second half.



Marines Top Bulldogs In Two Overtimes

When Peshtigo and Marinette meet, people expect a four-quarter brawl. On Tuesday, fans got a little extra.

It took two overtimes to pick a winner between the Bulldogs and Marines, with Marinette pulling out a 68-65 home win in the end.

The Marines honored seniors Jake Poetzl and Matt Wagner. Poetzl broke the Marines' all-time scoring record in North Oshkosh over the weekend, as Marinette started the season 1-1, while Wagner hit 1,000 in a playoff loss to Notre Dame last season.

The Marines trailed late, but Poetzl hit a floater and Wagner knocked down two free throws within the final two minutes to tie the game up at 58, where the game would head to its first overtime.

Peshtigo took an early lead, but Marinette battled back to take the lead. Peshtigo senior Cameron Noffke hit a free throw to tie the score at 61 and send the game to a second overtime, however.

In the second overtime, Marinette took the lead by four points, a crucial separation in a game of four minutes.

"In that second overtime, I really challenged the guys to get the lead and we were kind of playing behind most of the time toward the end," Marinette coach Matt Joost said. "We fought all the way, but I challenged them to get out ahead and just possess the ball and make them foul."

Peshtigo senior Mitchell VanVooren made a bucket inside the final minute to bring the score to 65-63, but Marinette's Tyler Fayta restored the cushion with two free tosses. Joe Sodini scored quickly and Marinette missed two free throws to open the door for Peshtigo, but the Bulldogs couldn't capitalize.

Peshtigo was missing three potential starters for a Spanish trip to Costa Rica, but it didn't seem to hamper the Bulldogs much.

"We're not going to make excuses that we're missing people at all. Our motto all week is next man up and who's going to earn that spot and I believe we had guys to do that," Peshtigo coach Nate Motkowski said." It wasn't a different change of strategy, it was just different guys and having them fit into what we wanted to do, so I don't think we changed anything X and O-wise, we just plugged in a couple different guys."

In the first half, Marinette led by as many as 11, but Peshtigo battled, just as fans have come to expect from the two cross-town rivals early in the season.

"It's a great thing to happen in the first couple of games, especially against the rivalry team. The pressure of this game was high, especially when they came out strong and I thought we came out a bit flat. We knew it was going to be a game all the way," Joost said. "Especially the second, half. They came out really strong and we did too but everything was matched. They'd make a play on the offensive end and we'd make a play right back and it was just a back and forth game. It's thrilling to get the double overtime win."

For Peshtigo, a loss is disappointing, but it's not heart-breaking.

"I think the hard thing we had tonight, we're playing a team that should win or be at the top of their conference and for us to stick with them shorthanded and tired with our first game going into their third game, I think that shows us everything that the coaches wanted to see," Motkowski said. "That's a lot of heart."

The Bulldogs have 10 seniors on the roster when fully staffed. VanVooren led the team with 20 points on 10-of-17 shooting. Noffke had 16 points on 7-for-17 shooting.

"We've been talking all week about who are our leaders, who's going to step up and be our guy, who's going to show the heart on and off the court and Cameron Noffke stepped up and I think everybody in the gym knew he's going to be a leader for us this year," Motkowski said.

Dionne and Jones had 12 and 11 points, respectively. They were two players that stepped up in the absence of three possible starters.

"I thought Darren Dionne and Damon Jones had great games," Motkowski said. "I'm proud of both of those guys and they earned their starting spot and they're going to have that spot until somebody takes it."

Poetzl and Wagner combined to shoot 11-for-38 for 36 points. For the firepower those two possess, that's a successful defensive night.

"I thought for the most part, everything we talked about, we did. Those guys are two great scorers and they're going to score their points," Motkowski said. "You give them eight extra minutes and they'll score even more points. If you would have told us, "hey, you're going to play eight extra minutes and you're going to keep those guys both under 20, I think most coaches would be really happy with that."

Bretl and Rylie Nelson, who had perhaps the Marines' best game, each had 11 points. Nelson was 3-for-4 from beyond the arc.

"That's his job is to come out and be aggressive and we trust him 100 percent with his shot. He's a great shooter from any point on the court and he came out and gave us a huge spark in that first half," Joost said. "I know if one of those guys did foul out, Rylie would have been able to come in and do a great job and he did a great job on the bench, too, getting the guys riled up. Huge moment for him tonight coming off the bench."

The Marines are 2-1 after splitting a pair in Oshkosh over the weekend. Peshtigo starts the season 0-1.



Panthers Hold Off Eagles For One Point Win

Oconto Falls and Suring battled to as close of a game as possible despite a game that felt like two totally different games.

The Panthers led 39-21 after one half of play, as Suring scored just 21 points, with 15 coming off of three-pointers.

Suring outplayed Oconto Falls in the second half, but they couldn't make the comeback complete, falling 66-65.

The Eagles outscored the Panthers 44-27 in the second half on the back of Caleb Lally, who hit five second-half threes and finished with a game-high 23 points. Mitch Stegeman scored 17. Suring had just four players score, as Jayden Geniesse scored 12 on four threes and Dequez Sepulveda had 10.

Oconto Falls' scoring was more evently spread, as seven Panthers stamped their names on the scoresheet.

Joe Schoen led with 17 points, including three shots from downtown. Mitch Manns and Dakota Carriveau each had 12 total points.
