Crivitz Holds Onto Lead Over Wausaukee in Close Contest

Issue Date: February 3, 2021

Crivitz Posts Win Over Wausaukee<.b>

The Crivitz Wolverines held off the Wausaukee Rangers last week to defeat them by way of a 57-46 final verdict.

"I played two teams tonight," said Crivitz Head Coach Brett Meyers. "We played everyone today since there was not a JV game and that threw us out of rhythm. Some of our combinations tonight were off."

It wasn't a run away at any point for the Wolverines who fought hard over the first half getting a 29-20 lead.

"I'm happy with the underclassmen though they did a good job tonight," said Meyers. "We played hard when we needed to tonight. You play your varsity players and then you put in people they aren't as used to playing with and it can put you in a pinch. But everyone got to play and that was great for us."

At one point over the first half the Wolverines led 26-10 but the Rangers were not willing to give up and closed the gap.

"It's always a battle when we play," said Wausaukee Head Coach Dave Messar. "I just got to figure out a way to play toe to toe instead of playing catch up all game long.

Over the second half the Rangers closed within eight points 33-25 but watched as that slight rally evaporated behind a tough Wolverines attack.

"We have been starting out most of our games with large deficits," said Messar. "We played tough tonight and we are maturing. We are heading in the right direction heading toward playoffs."



Lena Survives Close Call with Wausaukee

The Lena Wildcats posted a win Friday night on their home court but not until Wausaukee gave them a battle and the fans in attendance a show.

"We knew this was going to be a competitive game," said Lena head coach Tim Goldschmidt. "We have beat this team by one point and then by two points so we knew this wasn't going to be an easy win."

After the final buzzer the Wildcats were on top 43-40.

"I thought we were going to have another overtime game," said Wausaukee head coach Dave Messar. "I told the girls we watched two now lets win one. I was disappointed to see us down but our receivers really fought back."

The wild show had twists and turns along the way. Over the first half the lead switched multiple times until the Wildcats took the lead 20-14.

"We got excited tonight, said Messar. "We need to hit our free throws. those free throw misses really cost us the game. We lost tonight but like I told the girls graduation this year doesn't affect us. The team we played will lose some players. We are all going to be back with more experience."

The second half was more in the hands of Wausaukee, who shot a 26 point tally and held Lena at 23 points. Unfortunately for the Rangers the rally wasn't enough.

By games end the Wildcats were led by Kennedy Marquardt with 15 points. Claire Brooks posted eight. Aspen McGee finished with seven.

Wausaukee was led by Autumn Schroeder with 17 points. Rachel Schlies got nine while Kenzie Truesdell posted seven.

"I give my girls credit for stepping up," said Goldschmidt. "One of our best ball handlers went down on a concussion and the girls really stepped up to make up for her loss. We know they have a great ball player in Rachel Schlies and we know we have to stop her if we are going to win."



Bulldogs Drop Overtime Game to Eagles 55-51

For the third straight game, Peshtigo's girls went to at least one overtime period. Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, Thursday's game with Southern Door ended in a loss, unlike the first two, both triple-overtime wins..

Peshtigo trailed 28-16 at halftime. The Bulldogs wouldn't come out firing in the second half either, trailing by as much as 15 at one point

Peshtigo coach Bruce Parkovich said Southern Door came out amped up and Peshtigo didn't match the energy.

"We were never ahead the whole game. We were down 12 at halftime and they were playing very well. It was parents' night, it was senior night, Norton was getting six points and she had 1,000, so they were pretty fired up," referring to Southern Door's leading scorer, Nicole Norton.

Parkovich said Peshtigo trailed by 19 at half against Southern Door last year and nearly came back to win.

"I just told them at halftime, "last year we were down 19 at halftime and almost won, what's 12?' We ended up I think down 13, 14 at the time," he said. "Then all of the sudden, we just started picking it up. We made a three and we get a turnover on them, come down and drive in, make a layup and before you know it, we're down three."

With just seconds left in the game, down by three, Peshtigo lost the ball out of bounds, but retained the ball after the last touch came off Southern Door.

Off the out-of-bounds play, Grace Wickman nailed a contested 3-pointer to tie the game at 49.

"I was surprised they let her shoot it because they had fouls to give, but every coach is different," Parkovich said.

Peshtigo didn't quite have it in the overtime period, scoring only two points and falling 55-51, with Parkovich mentioning turnovers and missed layups as contributors in the half.

"The girls really played hard. They could have packed their bags when we were down 15 at one time," Parkovich said. "It's just one of those things were we sort of ran out of gas in the overtime. Southern Door is a good team. We felt we could play with them and we sure did."

Norton scored 17 points to lead all Southern Door scorers. Peshtigo's Sydney Lund had 18 points, while Emma Gilligan added 12 and Wickman chipped in nine.



Coleman Gets Win Over Shiocton

The Coleman Cougars who have shown this season that they can win against just about everyone, set down the home court Shiocton Wolves by way of a 52-37 final verdict.

Coleman didn't look like they were going to be able to keep up with the Wolves, over the first half they found themselves trailing by a decent chunk of points 23-15.

But a superlative effort over the second half propelled the Cougars to the win. That second half saw the Cougars post 37 points while holding Shiocton to just 14 points.

Hailey Ziemer had a whale of a game, shooting her way to a game high 22 points. Michaela Zeitler added eight to the tally while Aubrey Bintz also added eight.

Shiocton was led by Cora Gussner with 10 points and Emily Earth with eight points. Kendal Stingle finished with six.



Florence Posts Win Over White Lake

The Florence Bobcats got a huge blowout win over the White Lake girls Friday night, 54-11.

White Lake struggled to get moving scoring six points in the first half and five in the second. Florence on the other hand shot their way to a 36 point tally in the opening frame.

After the intermission Florence set the cruise control, hitting another 18 points, more than enough needed to take the win.

Florence was led by Isabella Millan 18 points. Lacey Enders followed with 13 points while Aubrey Selden got nine.



Oconto Gets Win Over Sturgeon Bay

The Oconto Blue Devils worked their way to a 56-44 win over the Sturgeon Bay boys Friday night in Sturgeon Bay.

The lead was in the hands of the Blue Devils throughout as they controlled the board over the first half by a substantial margin 29-14.

The second half was in Sturgeon Bays hands as they created a slight edge 30-27.

Lianna Baxter had an amazing game sowing 27 points. Hannah Moe posted 12 points while Leah Allen got eight.

Sturgeon Bay's Carley Wodack added up 15 points while Drew Starr posted 11 points. Sierra Arneman got seven points.



Gillett Races To Win Over Crivitz

Gillett who has been one of the toughest teams the M&O has to offer this season, set down the Crivitz Wolverines 66-35 Saturday night in Gillett.

Gillett quickly found themselves in the lead, posting 32 points over the first half while stopping the Wolverines at 19.

Another 34 points over the second half spelled defeat for the Wolverines.

Crivitz was led by Riley Mueller with 10 points and Nilea Guns with nine. Kate Richlen and Bailey Josie-Bemis both got five points each.



Florence Gets Defeated by Laona/Wabeno

The Florence Bobcats couldn't keep up with the Laona/Wabeno Rebels last Monday night, falling behind 72-26.

The Blow out win saw the Rebels hold the lead going into the locker room 45-14.

The second dialed differential was about the same with the Rebels cruising to the 27-12 readout.

Florence was led by Isabella Milan with 10 points and Victoria Peterson with six. Lacey Enders also posted six.



Coleman Takes Win Over Crivitz

The Coleman Cougars continued their winning ways Monday night posting a 67-35 victory over the visiting Crivitz Wolverines.

Coleman hit the court hard Monday night, quickly finding themselves in the lad 34-12 at the half.

The second frame saw the Cougars post 33 points to the Wolverines 22.

Coleman was led by Hailey Ziemer with 20 points and  Aubrey Bintz with nine points. Cameron Compe got eight points.

Crivitz was led by Nilea Guns with 10 points and Riley Mueller with six points. Kylie Chilcote added on six points as well.



Niagara Beats Florence

The Niagara Badgers took the home court win Thursday night when they hosted the Florence Bobcats who they defeated 42-27.

Niagara was able to double up on the Bobcats over the first half getting 22 points to the Bobcats 11.

Over the second half the Florence girls scored an additional 16 points while the Badgers wrapped things up with 20 final frame points.

Alyssa Cretton bagged the most points on the night with 22 to her name. Wells and Borcherdt both added seven points each.

Florence was led by Isabella Millan with 17 points and Lacey Enders with six.



Peshtigo's Defense Leads Them to Win Over Sturgeon Bay

After three straight overtime games, including two that went to triple overtime, a comfortable win over a conference opponent is a welcome change for the Peshtigo Bulldogs.

Peshtigo defeated Sturgeon Bay by a 59-31 score on Tuesday, as the Bulldogs held their opponents to just 13 points on six made field goals in the first half. In the second half, Sturgeon Bay made just four field goals.

Peshtigo, on the other hand, had built a 24-13 lead by the break and elevated its offensive level in the second half with a 35-point tally.

Peshtigo's Allison Dudka led all scorers with 16 points, while Grace Wickman scored 11. Emma Gilligan chipped in nine, Sydney Lund had eight and Akira Smalls scored seven.

For Sturgeon Bay, Morgan Reinhardt's eight was the only individual total over five points.
