Baxter Leads Bulldogs In Win Over Sturgeon Bay

Issue Date: December 13, 2018

Freshman Lianna Baxter scored 30 points to lead the Peshtigo Bulldogs to a 47-36 win over Sturgeon Bay on Friday.

Baxter had 15 of the Bulldogs' 22 at the half, as they led 22-20 at the break. She scored 15 more in the second half to nearly outscore the opponents by herself.

She went 16-for-24 at the free throw line. Peshtigo was 21-for-36 as a team and the Clippers went 15-for-30.

There were 50 fouls called in the game and each team had three players foul out in the game.

"I know their coach was upset because he said they don't let us play," Peshtigo coach Bruce Parkovich said. "We had three girls that fouled out and I think they had three. It was a matter of free throws.

The Bulldogs led 9-1 out of the gate, but turned the ball over 10 straight times to give the Clippers an 11-9 lead. The Bulldogs are a young team, and hope to improve the little things like passing and confidence as the season progresses.

"We're not a good passing team, so that's just something we have to get better at, but it's always a good win at Sturgeon Bay, to win that one," Parkovich said. "We've got to regroup and keep working hard, because we're young and I think once they catch on, I've always said, anyone can play freshman ball or JV, but the big step is the varsity and if you don't adjust to that, boy you have a tough time playing. Some of our kids have a tough time playing because they're not used to playing varsity, but hopefully we'll get better."

Grace Wickman had nine points.



Coleman Takes

Neighbor for a Ride


The Coleman Cougars had a great day on the basketball court Thursday night when they hosted the Lena Wildcats who they handed a rough ride 54-32.

Coleman's Hailey Zimmer got warmed up early and it showed as she hit for 13 first half points, nine of which came by way of the three.

It seemed that Coleman was looking to show that they can shoot, and over that first half they certainly did as Madelyn Hoida struck for two three pointers. Cameron Compe also jumped into the feeding frenzy as she sunk a couple behind the arc buckets herself.

By the end of the night Ziemer had earned top scoring honors for the Cougars with 13 points. She was followed by Kyla Manning with 11 points and Mackenzie Champagne with eight points.

Lena's Meckenna Portier posted 10 points on the night while Madysen Herald added seven.



Eagles Scoop

Up Easy Win


The Suring Eagles took the show at home last Thursday when they defeated the visiting St. Thomas Aquinas Cavaliers 66-25.

During the huge win the Eagles had four of their starters reach double digits.

Paige Krueger who bagged top scoring honors opened the game for the Eagles with nine first half points adding another six over the second half for 15 total on the night.

Suring's Ryan Wagner gave the Eagles 14 points which she earned with four three pointers along the way.

Wylee VanBellinger battled her was to 12 points while Stephanie Huth rounded off the double digit scorers for Suring with 10 points.

Halle Beranek led the way for the Cavaliers with 12 points while Alexa Pristelski hit two threes on her way to an 11 point total.



Niagara Hangs

Tough For Win


The Niagara Badgers had a close game with the Norway girls last Thursday, and were faced with a challenge that went down to the last minutes as Niagara bagged the win 50-44.

Niagara outscored their opponents in the first half 27-18 but were outscored by Norway over the seconds 26-23.

Norway's H. Clifford got 14 points during the match up which was good enough for top scoring honors.

Niagara was led by Jaida Maki and Jessica Oratch who both posted 11 points each.



Goodman/Pembine Falls

To Laona/Wabeno


The Goodman-Pembine Lady Patriots fell to Laona/Wabeno 78-39 on Friday.

The Patriots were down 46-21 at the half. Katelyn Nelson led the Patriots with 11 points and 10 rebounds. The Laona/Wabeno defense was swarming, forcing a total of 30 turnovers in the game.



Wausaukee Takes

Win Over GB West


The Wausaukee Ranger girls basketball team secured a nice 60-56 victory over GB West Monday night in Wausaukee during an overtime victory.

West started just a bit stronger than Wausaukee, controlling the scoreboard at the half by a narrow 24-22 margin.

Both team scored enough over the second half to send the game into a 50-50 overtime match. But it was the Rangers who came away with the win after scoring 10 points to GB West's six during overtime.

It was truly Madelyn Schlies' night as she went absolutely wild on GB West, hitting for 34 points on the evening. Kaelyn Schlies chipped in 10 points while Natalie Schroeder got seven.

West's Allen ended the evening with 22 points while teammate Hunter chipped in nine.



Florence

Beats Lena


The Florence Bobcats bagged a 47-34 victory over the Lena Wildcat girls Monday night.

Jenna Spinger led the way for the Bobcats with 17 points while Kathleen Selden chipped in eight. Savannah Vassar and Cassie Larson both added six points to the tally.

Lena was led by Portier with 11 points and Peterson with nine. Herald chipped in nine as well.



Oneida Wins

Over Niagara


The Oneida Nation Thunderhawks secured a 45-33 win over the hosting Niagara Badgers last Tuesday night.

Oneida went ahead early, taking a nice 27-17 lead into the locker and contoured to enjoy scoring success over the second half outscoring the Badgers 18-16.

Oneida's Shuman led all scorers with 16 points during the match up. M'Kenzey Ackley and Leida Rodrigues both chipped in 10 points each.

Jasmine Racoine led the way for the Badgers with 14 points while Jessica Oratch chipped in eight to the effort.



Menominee Sets

Down Sturgeon Bay


The Menominee Maroon girls took a 72-36 blowout win over the Sturgeon Bay Clippers Tuesday night in Menominee.

Leading the way for Menominee was Erin Barrette with 14 points and Sarah Barrette with 13 points. Anderson chipped in 12 points.



Marines Fall Hard to

Lux-Casco 66-24


Marinette's offense was stuck in neutral against Luxemburg-Casco Friday night. The visiting Spartans used size and scoring ability to coast to a 66-24 road win.

The Marines scored just 24 points to the Spartans' 66. Cassie Schlitz had 20 for the high-flying Spartans, while Marinette's leading scorer was Katelyn Kitzinger, who scored 24 in the losing effort. Abby Wingender and Emma Wendt each had four.



Rangers Big First

Half Grounds Eagles


Wausaukee dominated the first half of a 69-39 win over Suring on Tuesday, scoring 37 points to sail to a win.

The Rangers got 37 in the half, led by 12 from Kaelyn Schlies, who dumped in 12 in the first half and had a game-high 20 overall. Allison Versaskas scored 15 points, including 7-for-11 free throws. Madelyn Schlies scored 11 and the pair of Courtney Messar and Natalie Schroeder each had eight.

Suring was led by Wylee Van Bellinger, who had 10 points. She had eight of the team's 16 in the first half. 10 Eagles scored in the game, but it wasn't enough to overcome the Rangers.



Tigers Fast Start

Cages Cougars


Gillett beat Coleman 65-42 on Tuesday behind big games from Karissa Schaal and Aubrey DeBauch.

Schaal scored 24 points, making 12 buckets in the game, seven of which came in the first half. DeBauch had 18 in the game, scoring 11 in the first half, which helped the Tigers get 35 in the opening period and build their lead.

Coleman trailed 20 at the break and couldn't claw back, despite a more positive second half. Hailey Ziemer's 11 points were a team-high total. Cameron Compe had nine.



Wausaukee Downs

Gillett in Tight

Conference Contest


Twenty-two points from Karissa Schaal wasn't enough to help Gillett beat Wausaukee on Thursday, as the Rangers won 58-54.

Gillett scored 32 to out-pace Wausaukee in the second half, but in the end it came up just short.

Schaal led all scorers, putting in 12 in the second half, including two triples, but the Tigers were beaten by a balanced Ranger attack.

Madelyn Schlies scored 16, while Stephanie Murray, Kaelyn Schlies and Allison Versaskas each scored 10 points.

For Gillett, Sydney Young and Aubrey DeBauch each had nine.

Tough Defense

Helps Maroons

Pull Away From Bulldogs


The Peshtigo Bulldogs had a hard time handling a tough Menominee Maroons' zone on Saturday, their third game of the week.

After a battle with Sturgeon Bay on Friday, the Bulldogs couldn't score with ease against Menominee, as the Maroons limited star freshman Lianna Baxter to just 14 points.

"We're not a great outside shooting team so those girls won't shoot outside. Sometimes we look bad against that zone, but a lot of times they just don't want to shoot the ball and miss," Peshtigo coach Bruce Parkovich said. "You play man and I think we're okay. Lianna's going to get her points then, but in a zone they can cover up on her and it makes it really tough on us then."

The final score was 51-32 in favor of the Maroons, but it was closer than that, Parkovich said.

"The score doesn't indicate how the game was, because it was much closer than that," he said. "They got away with it at the end. I was proud of those girls. We are just inexperienced."

Grace Wickman scored seven points, the team's second-highest total. The Bulldogs are still looking for a a true second scorer behind Baxter.

"The fact remains that we don't have another scorer right now. Hopefully we can pick one up," Parkovich said. "We have our work cut out because we've got some tough games, three in a row here. Hopefully we'll learn, that's the main thing: learn from our mistakes and get better."

Parkovich said he thought Baxter did a good job on Emma Anderson, who led the team with 15 points. Emma Hofer scored 11.
