Area Teams Advance in Regional Play

Issue Date: May 22, 2019

Peshtigo Falls In Regional to Powerful Tomahawk

The Peshtigo Bulldog softball squad was handed a hard loss last Tuesday night when they traveled to Tomahawk where they were slammed with a 7-1 loss to end thier season in the regional loss.

Peshtigo looked as if they might have a handle on the game as they entered the first inning. Grace Wickman got things rolling with a single, advanced on a stolen base , made it to third on a fielders choice and scored on a Kennedy Chmela single.

It was Peshtigo's only run of the evening. For the rest of the game Peshtigo struggled to send more than three to the plate every inning.

Tomahawk on the other hand found a considerable gap in the defense starting during the fourth inning. They were able to get two in the fourth while catching a bit more in the fifth with another two runs. A three run sixth gave them all they needed to put away the Bulldogs.

Wausaukee Advances With Regional Win

The Wausaukee Ranger softball team found a way to make sure they will continue playing this season, they did so by defeating the visiting Oneida Nation Thunderhawks Tuesday night in Wausaukee 9-2.

Were it not for a few errors during the second inning the Rangers may have come out of this one with a shutout.

But regardless of the second inning the Rangers played a focused and determined game of softball. Just look at how they started the first. Allison Versaskas reached to begin the game while Kaelyn Schlies brought her in off a single. Kyle Smith also made it on during the inning and later scored when Madelyn Schlies clubbed a triple. Schlies wen thome off a passed ball.

Oneida showed a spark during the second when a bit of an opening began in the Wausaukee defense. Oneida was able to take advantage with two runs.

Wausaukee got back to scoring in the fourth when Amber Caylor reached off a single followed by Avery Bartles who walked. Callie Orlando hit in Caylor with a single while Allison Versaskas hit a fly to creat space for Bartles to tag the plate.

Smith and M. Schlies both crushed home off a Bartles single during the fifth while Versaskas record the games final run off a wild pitch.

Versaskas took the pitching win allowing eight hits, two runs and now walks while striking out four during her seven innings pitched.

Oneida's Barber took the loss allowing nine hits, nine runs (four earned) and three walks whiles striking out three.

At the plate Onieda's Barber was two of Three while M. Ackley went three of four with one run.

Bartles was two of two for Wausaukee at the plate. She got two RBIs along the way. M. Schlies went two of three with two runs and one RBI.

Oconto Falls Blanks Freedom

The Oconto Falls Panther girls were able to shut out the visiting Freedom Irish Tuesday night 7-0.

The Pnathers were unstoppable throughout as they posted two runs in the first, two more in the second, and three in the third to surpass the Irish who were unable to score a run.

At the plate the Panthers were led by Ash who went two of two with one run and two RBIs. Hubert went two of three with an RBI while Johnson was two of three with two runs and one RBI.

Pitching for the win was the Panthers' Tolzman who allowed eight hits, no runs and one walk while striking out two.

Bork took the loss for Freedom allowing five hits, four runs (two earned) and one walk.

Panthers Take Two Pitchers Duals From Marines

Oconto Falls got the better of Marinette in two low-scoring ballgames on Thursday to leave the Marines with a sour taste in their mouth going into the postseason.

Falls beat Marinette 2-0 and 3-2, finishing the North Eastern Conference season 13-5 and the regular season 16-7.

For Marinette, which was cruising along as of late, the losses dropped it to 12-7 overall and 11-7 in NEC play.

In game one, Marinette fell 2-0, with errors biting the Marines and Oconto Falls taking full advantage, scoring runs in the fifth and seventh.

Both pitchers in the game were in top form, as Panther Josie Tolzman allowed just three hits and walked none to get the win over seven scoreless innings. She struck out five.

On the other hand, Marinette's Sydney Nemetz went seven innings, allowing four hits and striking out a whopping 15 batters. Unfortunately for her, two unearned runs scored to give the Panthers some offense in the game.

Kaelyn Allen and Morgan Helmle scored runs for Oconto Falls.

Game two was another pitchers' duel, with Tolzman again victorious. The Panthers ace struck out four over seven innings, allowing two runs on six hits. Again, she didn't walk a batter in a good display of command.

Bailie Thielen was the hard-luck loser in the circle. She allowed three runs on seven hits and three walks, striking out two.

Sydney and Bailie were both outstanding today," Marinette coach Josh Lacy said. "It's a shame we couldn't get more support for them. Give credit to Josie Tolzman though, she kept us off balance all day and we never could adjust to the change of speed."

In game two, Tatum Ihde hit another home run for Marinette, something the Marines have gotten accustomed to seeing. She drove in two, with Renikow scoring on the first-inning blast.

Falls got two of its three runs in the first inning to match Marinette's home run swing, with Ally Fabry and Abbi Remic coming around to score. Fabry would break the tie in the fifth, hitting a single and coming around to score courtesy of Helmle.

Peshtigo Weathers Coleman Late Rally for 6-5 Victory

In something of a weird game stat-wise, Peshtigo defeated Coleman 6-5 on Thursday.

Peshtigo hopped on top in the first inning, scoring two runs from Mattie Lacoursiere and Dreya Detry. In the fourth and fifth, the Bulldogs added on to take a 6-0 lead, looking like they would pull away for good on Cameron Compe, the Coleman hurler.

"What hurt us was our bats were silent in the beginning and Peshtigo hit the ball. This is probably the best we've seen Cam pitch all year. Even that said, they got some hits early on, got some scores, but her pitching kept us in," Coleman coach Jean LeVash said. "We kind of shut them down after the early innings and it it took us until the sixth to get the bats going. Had we been able to get a few of those early on, it might have been one we would have ended up winning."

Up until the sixth, Coleman didn't have a hit. In the sixth, Peshtigo would allow four Coleman runs, however. Caitlin Huberty walked, Laura Osterberg reached on an error and Kenzie Champagne doubled home the pair. Mikey Zeitler singled home a run, Kailey Klimek singled and Megan Fraser singled home a run.

In the seventh, the Cougars got one more, but they came up just short, despite five errors from Peshtigo's defense that allowed Coleman to stay in the game despite being out-hit 13-4.

"I knew two, three, that wasn't going to be enough, because they have their inning like they can have and then you're thinking, "why didn't I try to manufacture runs,'" Peshtigo coach Tom Christensen said. "We did do that and the girls responded with some great small ball and it paid off."

For the Bulldogs, Detry and Allison Dudka each scored two runs. Dudka went 2-for-3 in the game. Lacoursiere went 3-for-4 in the game as well.

Grace Meyers went seven innings, striking out seven and getting the win for Peshtigo after powering through and finishing out the game.

"Grace threw a great game. We just figure, let her go, it's her game. She was pushing in the seventh, but I knew she wanted it," Christensen said. "She fought through it and showed how tough she can be and we take a win from a really good team."

Champagne had two hits and two RBIs for Coleman.

Coleman Out Does Manawa For Regional Victory

The Coleman Cougars claimed a regional playoff victory Tuesday night in Coleman when they defeated the Manama Wolves 5-0.

At the plate the Cougars saw Mackenzie Champagne post a one of three showing with one RBI while Cameron Compe and Madelyn Hoida both went one of three with one RBI as well.

Compe was the evenings winning pitcher giving up no walks and seven hits while striking out seven.

Manawa's s. Lee took the pitching loss giving up one walk and striking out thre

Marines Drop Regional Opener

The Marinette Marines saw there season end Tuesday night when the Lux-Casco Spartans came to town and handed the home field Marines a 7-1 loss in thier Regional Opener.

It was all Lux-casco all the way as four runs helped set the tone in the first inning for the Spartans. They made it 5-0 over the third inning and incresed it by two more before the Marines showed some life. That being a one run fourth. That single run was scored Mattie Renikow who slugged the runner in.

Ally Dart took the win for Lux-Casco pitching her way to four strike outs. Sydney Nemetz allowed eight hits, seven runs (five earned) and eight walks while striking out five.

Renikow as two of four for Marinette while Maya Carviou went two of four. Jordan Boettcher was one of three with a double.

Northland Pines Hands Gillett/Sruing Non-Conferecne Loss

The Gillett/Suring Hornets were close in their match with the Northland Pines girls but close just didn't cut it as the Northland girls took the non-conference win 7-5.

The Hornets were first to strike as they posted a two run first inning and improved apon that mark in the second with another run. Northland answer edin the third with four runs and increased their lead to 5-3 over the fourth inning. The Hornets tied things up over the top of the fifth with two runs but a one run effort in each of the last two inning gave the Northland girls just enough surpass the Hornets.

At the plate the Hornets were led by Griffen who went three of four with one run and one RBI. Smith was two of three with three RBI while Kohls went two of three with one run.

In the pitchers circle Northlands Olivottin allowed 12 hits, five runs (three earned) and one walk in her seven inning win. She struck out nine.

Young took the loss for Gillett/Suring giving up seven hits, seven runs (two earned) and no walks while striking out two and giving up one home run.

Lena/STAA Falls in Regional To Oneida Nation

The Oneida Nation girls were unstoppable Monday night when they slammed the Lena/STAA Cavaliers with a 20-7 loss, advancing to the second round of playoffs.

The staggering defeat saw the Thunderhawkls soar to an early lead, posting five runs over the first inning.

The Cavvies got two over the second to help keep pace, but saw that pace increase by the Thunderhawks with a four run third inning.

The seventh is where the Oneida Nation girls went wild though as they blasted the cave pitcher for nine closing frame runs.
