Suring Stuns Coleman; Peshtigo Wins Two In Triple O.T.

Issue Date: January 27, 2021

Cougars See First Half Lead Evaporate Behind

Eagle Winning Effort


The Coleman Cougars and the Suring Eagles, who sit atop of the M&O standings faced off Thursday night for a showdown that could decide who gets crown of the conference as the Eagles came back for a 57-47 win.

"We had a little foul trouble in this one," said Coleman head coach Todd Olsen. "We lost a little continuity tonight. We had shots but they just weren't falling. We had every look we could have wanted on offense but just couldn't get a bucket in the second half. Then we started having turnover issues. We have three games next week so we will figure it out"

Though the Eagles were the nights eventual winners it didn't look that way over the first half as the Cougars were able to work their way to a 29-22 lead by the first buzzer.

The second half however saw a considerable comeback effort from the Suring girls who were led by an amazing second half effort from Paige Krueger. Krueger fired in 15 second half points which helped to decide the match in favor of the Eagles.

"This was a great win for us," said Suring Head Coach Mitch Woulf. "We definitely had this one circled when looking at the season schedule. Everyone knew this was going to be a tough game. We came out a little flat but we really found our stride in the second half. We are a defensive team and defense is alway our best offense."

By games end Kruger had amassed a game high 23 points. Kate Mahoney chipped in 10 points while Kylee Stelzer added nine.

"Paige had a huge game and is a phenomenal player," said Woulf. "Paige was just huge for us and the win was huge as well going into the playoffs. Tonight we had players step up. We had injury and foul troubles and we had our bench really show its strength."

Coleman was led by Hailey Ziemer with 13 points and Michaela Zeitler with 10 points. Aubrey Bintz posted nine on the night.

"When it comes to the three point shot we are feast or famine," said Olsen. "Thats what our offense is based on, drive and kick out. They did a great job stopping our drives and we just couldn't hit that kick out shot. So we will hit the gym and start shooting some more shots."



Peshtigo Slips Past Sevastopol in Three Overtimes

The game hung in the balance for every shot of Peshtigo's 48-45 triple-overtime win over Sevastopol on Monday.

The two teams combined to score just 15 points over three four-minute overtime periods, including just a combined two points in the second overtime, so every point was crucial.

The teams ended regulation tied at 39 after Sevastopol's Zoe-Rose Kuehn made one of two free throws with .5 seconds on the clock.

In overtime, Sevastopol's Bailey Rikkola made a layup with two minutes on the clock and made one of two free throws with 1:25 left.

Peshtigo didn't score in the period until Grace Wickman knocked in a 3-pointer to tie the game at 42.

With 19.5 seconds, Emma Gilligan went to the free throw line with a chance to break the tie, but missed her first free throw and the game went to double overtime.

In the second overtime, neither team made a shot from the field, with each team making just one free throw. It was the third overtime when Peshtigo found its spark, with Gilligan making an early 3-pointer to give Peshtigo an advantage. After a Sevastopol layup with 2:23 on the clock, the Bulldogs would hold on, making two of six free throws in the period and two of four in the final 30 seconds.

"Emma's three to start the last overtime, I think really sparked us, and of course we had to make some free throws there at the end," Peshtigo coach Bruce Parkovich said.

It was perhaps unsurprising to see the low scoring in the second half, considering it was something both teams dealt with all game, with Sevastopol employing stall tactics when they have a lead.

Peshtigo jumped out to a 19-11 lead in the first half and led 19-15 at the half. In the early goings of the second half, it looked like Peshtigo could pull away, stretching its lead to 28-18 with 13:46 to play. However, two Gilligan free throws at 13:46 would be Peshtigo's last points for nearly nine minutes, allowing Sevastopol to score 16 straight points and take a 34-28 lead.

"They're stalling. That's their stall that they do every game depending on if they're ahead or not," Parkovich said. "We just didn't get the lead very often so they could stay in it. We got a couple of steals and scored which got us close enough to get to the overtime."

Peshtigo was helped back into the game by Sydney Lund, who scored eight of Peshtigo's last 10 points in the final 4:19 of the game, including two free throws to give Peshtigo a one-point advantage late in regulation.

Lund finished with 21 to lead all scorers. Wickman finished with 12 and Gilligan had 10.

Kuehn scored 18 points to lead Sevastopol.



Peshtigo Edges Southern Door in Second Straight Triple Overtime Game

On Monday, after a 48-45 triple-overtime win over Sevastopol, Peshtigo coach Bruce Parkovich said he hoped his team "had any legs left" for its Tuesday game against Southern Door, the Bulldogs' fourth game in five nights.

The Bulldogs went to triple overtime once again on Tuesday, and once again, they were up to the task, winning 76-74.

The game was extremely close down the stretch. The largest lead of the final nine minutes was a 55-49 lead for Peshtigo with less than three minutes to play, but Southern Door got a three-pointer with 1:39 to play, one free throw with 1:11 to go and two more with 49.7 seconds to play. Those two free throws would be the last of the game, as the teams went into the first overtime tied at 55.

Peshtigo looked like it could end things in one overtime this time around, with four points from Sydney Lund and two from Grace Wickman to give Peshtigo a 61-57 lead with 2:27 to go in overtime. However, Peshtigo wouldn't score again in the overtime and Nicole Norton would make four of four free throws in the final minute and a half to tie the game at 61.

Norton scored all six of Southern Door's points in the first overtime and 10 points in the three overtimes combined.

In the second overtime, Southern Door led 68-66 after one made free throw with 18.2 seconds to play. With 5.2 seconds to play, Sydney Lund stepped to the line, down two.

She calmly knocked down both free throws to earn Peshtigo a shot at the game in the third overtime.

"That's just something that's mental. If there's nobody around you and you've got to make it, some people can and some people struggle," Peshtigo coach Bruce Parkovich said.

Lund made the first basket of the third overtime and had three points in the frame, with Emma Gilligan and Akira Smalls each scoring two points as well, as Peshtigo jumped out to a 76-71 lead and held on after Southern Door missed three of six free throws in the final 21 seconds of the game.

"I think four games in five days is really rough, and I wouldn't have blamed them if we got beat," Parkovich said. "It's just one of those things, but they really hung in there and they really did a nice job, so I'm very proud of them."

Wickman led Peshtigo with 22 points. Lund scored 19 and Gilligan had 11. Dreya Detry and Smalls chipped in eight apiece.

Southern Door's Allianna Dufek had 20 points and Nicole Norton scored 29 points to lead all scorers.

"She's going to be the conference player of the year, and rightly deserved, I think," Parkovich said of Norton. "She's very quick and she's got that outside shot of course, she makes over 70% of her free throws, so she's a very fine player."

Parkovich gave a lot of credit to Lund, who put in a full game's effort against Norton. Lund has developed a reputation within the team as Peshtigo's top defensive stopper.

"Sydney just worked awful hard on her and I give her credit. Thursday, I'm sure she's going to have to do it again, but great job by Sydney," Parkovich said. "Every game, she puts, I don't know if I can say 100% on defense, she just works hard that she makes whoever she's guarding uncomfortable and she certainly did tonight. She's a good ballplayer."



Coleman Blasts Wausaukee in Win

The Coleman Cougars were fast hitting and nearly unstoppable from behind the arc in Monday nights match up with the visiting Rangers who they defeated by way of a 62-25 final verdict.

The first half was all Coleman with the Cougars quickly working their way to a 44-10 halftime lead.

The Niagara Badgers were not going to be told no in their win over the Lena Wildcats as they slammed the home court Lena girls by way of a 61-30 final readout.

The more than double helping of points the Badgers amassed were due in large part to the efforts of Josie Rock who fired in 14 first half points.

By the end of the first half the Lena girls found themselves on the wrong end of a 34-14 rout.

Niagara posted another 27 points over the second half while stopping the Wildcats at 16 closing frame points.

Southern Door posted 26 points over the closing frame.

Crivitz was led by Tayah Werner with 11 points while Bailey Josie-Bemis posted eight and Kate Richlen seven.



Lena Scraps For

Win Over Florence

It was a tooth and nail fight for the Lena Wildcats Thursday night as they took on the Florence Bobcats in Lena. After the dust settled the Wildcats had won, thanks to a last second buzzer beater by Natalie McNurlen for the 53-51 win.

The close battle saw the Wildcats create a little breathing room over the opening minutes. At the half the Wildcats led 27-23. But a tough Bobcat crew made up the ground over the second closing the gap with a 28-26 second half differential.

Lena's win saw Kennedy Marquardt have one of her best nights of the season with 21 points to lead the Wildcats. McNurlen who hit the game winning shot finished the night with 16 points while teammate Chaela Rabas posted 13.

Florence was led by Isabella Millian with 26 points and Lacey Enders with 14 points.

She led Peshtigo in scoring for the game, finishing with 14 points total. Grace Wickman had 12 and Allison Peters scored nine.

No Algoma player scored more than seven points, with Peshtigo's defense smothering the Wolves to a tune of just 12 points in the first half, which helped Peshtigo build a 33-12 halftime lead.

Emma Gilligan added six for Peshtigo as well, with four from each Riley Ellie and Akira Smalls.



Hot Shooting Bulldog's Blow Past Clippers

Whatever offensive struggles the Peshtigo Bulldogs were having going into last week's game with Sturgeon Bay were a distant memory during Peshtigo's 78-37 win over the Clippers.

The Bulldogs were not to be denied on offense, especially in the second half. Peshtigo outscored Sturgeon Bay by a 30-23 margin in the first half, but a 43-14 second half made a statement.

Sydney Lund led Peshtigo with 20 points, including 11 points in the second half. Also scoring double figures in the second half was Akira Smalls, who scored all 11 of her points in the second.

Grace Wickman added 16 points and Emma Gilligan chipped in 15.
