Bulldogs Bag Two Wins Over Blue Devils

Issue Date: January 20, 2021

Bulldogs Rally in Second Half to Defeat the Blue Devils

The Peshtigo Bulldogs allowed just seven made field goals en route to a 39-33 win over the Oconto Blue Devils on Thursday. It wasn't that simple, however.

Oconto's Hannah Moe went 4-for-12 from the field to score 11 points, which was the most any Blue Devil scored in the game. The rest of the team went 3-for-22 from two-point range combined and 3-for-13 from downtown.

Peshtigo led 21-10 at the half before Oconto mounted something of a significant comeback, actually taking a 29-24 lead with under eight to play after a 15-0 run.

Peshtigo would score three straight baskets with less than five minutes on the clock to make it 31-29. After Oconto tied it up with two free throws by Moe with 3:11 on the clock, Peshtigo got a quick five points to make the lead 36-31.

Oconto wouldn't make a basket after that basket that gave them a 29-24 lead, with only free throws from that point on.

Peshtigo made seven of 18 free throw attempts down the stretch, but it was enough to hold off a struggling Oconto offense.

Peshtigo made just nine of its 27 attempted shots from the charity stripe, with coach Bruce Parkovich saying it "shouldn't have even been close" if the Bulldogs would have shot a bit better from the line.

It was a testament to their aggressiveness against a tall Oconto team that they drove to the basket to earn 27 free throws, but making just nine was a disappointment.

Lianna Baxter had six points and led Oconto with 11 rebounds in a matchup against her former teammates.

The Bulldogs know firsthand what the 6-foot-1 Baxter can do, so they used a box and one zone to limit Baxter and negate her height, with Sydney Lund playing Baxter from the front. It seemed to work pretty well for Peshtigo.

"We just walked through it the day before and all we said was "Sydney, stay in front and you're going to get help from the back,'" Parkovich said. "She only got six points, so to me that's a great job by Sydney and the rest of the girls. It was successful and we'll see if it works again."

For Peshtigo Dreya Detry, Grace Wickman and Sydney Lund had nine points apiece.

Parkovich also credited Emma Gilligan and Akira Smalls with sparking the team off the bench.

"I could tell our girls were a little tired so when they came in, they helped us out and then when we ended up getting that lead, we kept it then," Parkovich said.



Wolverines Bag Over Time Win Over Lena

The Crivitz Wolverines were the victors in Monday night's showdown in Lena against the Wildcats. After two halves were in the books the game had yet to be decided. Crivitz took the win over the extra frame 45-43.

It couldn't have been a more evenly matched night Monday evening when the Wildcats hosted the Wolverines. The two M&oOpowers clashed for what would be a three frame showdown.

The first frame went Lena's way, but just barely, as the Wolverines entered the intermission behind 22-20. The Second frame saw the Wolverines whittle away at the sight lead with an 18-16 point dfifertinal.

But the game deciding moment came in the over time period where the Crivitz girls posted 7 points while holding the Wildcats to five.

Chalea Rabas and Natalie McNurlen led the way for Lena, both getting 12 points each. Kennedy Marquardt chipped in 11 points.

For the Wolverines Riley Mueller led the way with 12 points. Bailey Jose-Bemis got nine while Nilea Guns and McKenna Sellen both posted seven points.



Coleman Goes Wild Against Niagara<.b>

The Coleman Cougars were not going to be slowed down, not even a bit, as they took a huge 77-49 victory over the visiting Niagara Badgers Friday night.

The win saw the Badgers fall way behind in the opening minutes as the Cougars piled on 38 points to the visiting Badgers' nine.

The second half saw the Cougars post another 39 points while Niagar was able to shoot their way to 49 with their 40 second half points.

Although Niagara took the tough loss they did have the evening top perfomer in Alyssa Cretton who fired in a game high 22 points. Teammate Champagne posted six while Borcherdt added five.

Coleman was led by Cameron Compe with 18 points and Hailey Ziemer who also posted 18 points. Aubrey Bintz chipped in eight to the effort.



Coleman Has Tough Outing Against Edgar

The Coleman Cougars couldn't overcome and early game push by the Edgar girls who were the night's winners Saturday evening, Taking the home court matchup 56-39.

Edgar added up 27 points over the first half with a good helping of three pointers from their girls, four starters all chimed in from behind the arc.

After the first buzzer Coleman was behind 27-19.

With another 29 points over the second half the Edgar girls were able to overcome the Cougars who managed to work out another 20 points over the closing frame.

Coleman was led by Aubrey Bintz with 14 points and Hailey Ziemer with seven. Michaela Ziegler finished with five.

Edgar's MaKenna Guden got 20 points for her team while Reagan Borcherdt finished with 10 points.



Florence Takes One Point Win Over Elcho

The Florence Bobcats took a 55-54 win over the Elcho Hornets Thursday evening in Florence.

The Bobcats definitely had their hands full in this contest as the watched their nice 31-25 lead from the first frame evaporate behind and late game Elcho push. That push came in the way of a 25-19 scoring differential that brought the Hornets within one of the lead as time expired.

Leading the way for the Bobcats was Isabella Millan who had an absolutely enormous game, scoring 36 points for her team. Lacey Enders followed up with nine points while Paige Uren added five.



Gillett Takes Win Over STAA

The Gillett Tigers were fired up for Thursday night's match up with the St. Thomas Aquinas Cavailers, who they handedly defeated 63-22 in Gillett.

The Tigers definitely didn't want to let off the gas in this one as they quickly got to a 37-14 first half lead.

STAA added another eight points over the second half while Gillett capped off the night with 37 closing frame points.

Leading the way for all scorers was Aubrey DeBauch with her 22 points for her Tigers. Ryan Wagner finished with 10 points while Macy Franti added up seven on the night.

Addie Pristelski posted 10 points along with her teammate Livia Benson who also posted 10.



Bulldogs Get Offensive, Beat Blue Devils in Packerland Rematch

The Peshtigo Bulldogs' second win of the week over the Oconto Blue Devils was a bit more offensively impressive than its first, with Peshtigo scoring 52 points compared with a 39-33 win earlier in the week.

The Bulldogs needed a strong offensive performance to beat the Lianna Baxter-led Blue Devils. Baxter scored 17 points and grabbed seven points against her former teammates, but the 6-foot-1 forward was held to a 5-for-21 shooting line in the game. She would shoot 7-for-10 at the free throw line as well.

"She ended up getting 17 but she had to work for it," Peshtigo coach Bruce Parkovich said, praising the work of Sydney Lund, who fronted Baxter all game, along with the other players who came over to trap Baxter in some double teams. "I thought the girls, both games, played well against her and made the other girls try to bail them out."

For Peshtigo, it was the Bulldogs' primary defensive stopper against Baxter, Lund, who did the heavy offensive lifting as well, scoring 18 points.

Emma Gilligan made a trio of 3-pointers and finished with 12 points, while Jaci Tonn had nine points.

Peshtigo made seven threes in the game, which was key to the win.

"Overall, except for our turnovers, I thought the girls played very well," Parkovich said. "We shot the ball well, we had seven threes, played good defense, and overall, it was a very good game, one of the best we've had this season, except for the turnovers."

Part of the reason for those turnovers was a full-court press Oconto turned on to try and cut into the lead. It worked, getting the Blue Devils a number of points off turnovers, but Peshtigo made some free throws and key baskets to hold onto a lead.
