Defense Helps Marines Move Past Mustangs

Issue Date: January 20, 2022

Area Girls Basketball

You don't see too many teams score 39 points in a high school basketball game and win by 14, but that's exactly what the Marinette Marines did in a 39-25 defeat of Little Chute on Monday.

The Marines have won two in a row for the first time this year, and they did it with defense Monday.

After the first half, they led 14-12, pulling away early in the second half to take a 27-14 lead on a Bryanna Torkko bucket.

Marinette kept the Mustangs at an arm's length for the rest of the game. With the score 31-22 with about four minutes left, the Marines made their run to put things away, taking a 15-point lead again on two free throws by Hannah Chenier.

Free throws have been a struggle for Marinette this year, but against Little Chute, the Marines made 13 of 16 free throws, including six of six in the final two minutes.

"Going 13 for 16 from the free throw line is probably the best free throw performance we've had all season, so that's a big positive to see," Marinette coach Zac Barker said. "A lot of our freshmen were on the line. They probably haven't been in that position too much. We've had a couple close games, but for the most part it's been our upperclassmen at the line, so that was good to see. Bry [Torkko] was there, Chloe [Seymour] was there, Riley Kieffer, so it's good to get the freshmen some experience at the line."

No Marine scored more than eight points in the game, but seven players carried at least some part of the scoring load.

"I think it was an overall team effort. We were down Lindsey [Wingender] tonight, and other people stepped up and played more minutes. Seven players scored tonight, so that was a positive to see," Barker said. "It's good when you have a balanced attack. I would say if we could have converted a couple more in transition, a couple layups, three of them probably could have been in double figures, just looking offhand here. When you have an approach like that to score 39 points in a high school game and win by 14, that's pretty good. I'd rather it this way than one person score 25 of your 39. It's more balanced and it's positive to see, so it's good."

It was Seymour who scored eight. Olivia Hanson and Torkko got seven apiece, Kylie Veriha scored six, and Kieffer scored five.



Eagles Quick Start Push

Them Past Rangers


It was a physical night of basketball Friday as Suring defeated Wausaukee 47-25.

Suring started with a bang as Christine Sleeter scored an and-one bucket to give the Eagles a 3-0 lead. They made it 14-6 with 10:49 left in the first half, and the Rangers had to call timeout.

Parker Zahn sent the Eagles into halftime with a banked-in 3-pointer just before the buzzer, and they led 29-14.

Suring scored the first nine points of the second half as well, taking a 38-14 lead. With nine minutes left, Suring's bench came in and closed out the game, 47-25.

Wausaukee coach Dave Messar felt the game was a little too physical.

"It was ugly. It's not basketball. That was close to rugby, and I won't coach dirty. That's why we get annihilated in games like this. I did have a discussion with their coach. I don't like that," he said. "Someone is going to get hurt. We're going home with seven bags of ice for our ride home with kids that need it, and they're tough kids, so I'm disappointed it came to that. A lot of it is we played last night and we got home at 11 o'clock at night, and it's a school night."

Suring coach Mitchell Woulf didn't see it the same way, saying it just came down to his bench playing hard late in the game.

"There were definitely some times when our younger girls got in, they're working on some things, they're trying hard. We're not a dirty team," he said. "They love getting the opportunity to play. We've played a lot of really close games as of late, so some of the girls haven't been getting a ton of playing time, and they're going out there and playing hard, and playing because they've got an opportunity to get in."

Seven players scored for Suring, led by 14 from Sleeter on 6-10 shooting. Bunny Cramer was 4-10 for 12 points and Zahn made all three of her shots to score seven points.

MacKenzie Bailey led the team with 10 rebounds. As a team, Suring grabbed 45 boards in the game.

Wausaukee's leader was Rachel Schlies, who scored 15. No other Ranger eclipsed four.

The Rangers have lost three straight, and five of six, falling to 4-11 on the year, but they won't quit, Messar said.

"I just don't like seeing kids get knocked to the floor time after time. That's not finesse, but we'll be all right," he said. "We'll come back hard and finish the season the best we can. We don't quit."

Suring's win broke a seven-game losing streak. The Eagles are 6-12.

Marines Cruise to

Win Over Vikings


Marinette defeated Denmark 46-27 on Thursday in what was one of the team's strongest performances of the season.

Marinette built an early lead and never looked back.

"I thought we played very well defensively," Marinette coach Zac Barker said. Marinette held Denmark to just 12 points in the second half. "The biggest thing is we were able to convert some of those steals in the first half and the second half."

One thing Barker commented on after the game was two scoring droughts where his team was held scoreless for seven or eight minutes.

The biggest thing is to "keep playing consistent," he said, noting that the Marines forced a few things and could've made a few extra passes.

"Overall it's a good performance, a good win for the girls," he said. "The first round through conference is done, nine games through conference, and I think we played well."

Hannah Chenier was "the best player on the court," Barker said. She scored 17 points to lead all scorers. Riley Kieffer scored 12, 10 of which came in the first half.



Thunderhawks Fly Past

Rangers in Big Home Win


Wausaukee lostt at Oneida Nation on Thursday, 70-24.

Oneida Nation was led by Chaske Jacobs, who scored 23 points on 9-of-16 shooting. Ethan Danforth scored 16, and three players got seven. No Wausaukee stats were available at press time.

The game was played at Oneida Nation High School. Wausaukee's next game comes on the road on Friday against Suring.
