Coleman Nips Niagara; Peshtigo Suffers First Loss

Issue Date: May 27, 2021

Coleman Keeps Perfect Conference Record Alive Against Niagara

The Coleman Cougars nearly saw their flawless conference record disappear last Monday night when they hosted the Niagara Badgers who they narrowly defeated 3-2.

"They weren't a team that we were going to take lightly," said Coleman head coach Jean LeVash. "We don't take any team lightly but I think they have really improved."

Niagara opened the game with a one-run effort which saw Abby Wells reach off a walk and score when she stole home.

Coleman answered back in the bottom of the first with a two-run effort.

Courtney DenRuyter walked to lead things off while Mackenzie Champagne brought her in off a double to left. Aubrey Kriescher scored Champagne when she hit her single to right field.

Then the bats fell silent until the bottom of the sixth when Coleman's Maddy Hoida reached off a walk then was brought in by Kriescher with a single to right field.

Noelle Champagne took the loss allowing four hits, three earned runs, and four walks while striking out two.

Courtney DenRuyter took the win for the Cougars in the pitching circle allowing two hits, two earned runs, and three walks while striking out 11.

"We hung the ball up there a little too much tonight," said LeVash. "We weren't hitting line drives. Their pitcher had just a great game and made it tough for us. It was a pretty solid defensive battle. This game was very well played."



Peshtigo Suffers First Loss of the Season

at Kewaunee 10-9


Peshtigo lost its first softball game of the year Friday against Kewaunee after a seventh-inning rally came up one run short.

Peshtigo fell 10-9, leaving the tying run on second in a three-run seventh inning.

Trailing 10-6 in the final frame, Peshtigo's first three batters of the inning reached base, with Emma Gilligan starting things off with a single and both Lexi Kehoe and Sam Modric reaching on errors by the shortstop.

After Grace Wickman scored a runner on an out, Karli Cahill singled.

After the second out of the inning, Allison Dudka was walked intentionally to put runners on first and second with two outs, but a popup to short ended the Bulldogs' inning.

What will sting for Peshtigo is that the Bulldogs were up 5-0 after two and a half innings and let the lead slip, with six runs in Kewaunee's half of the fifth doing the bulk of the damage.

Kewaunee also scored three in the third and one in the fourth.

"We had a couple of bad innings. We were up 5-0, a couple of bad innings and we let them back in the ballgame and we just couldn't overcome that four-run lead in the last inning," Peshtigo coach Bill Wickman said. "But our girls fought hard, and I told our girls all year, the only team that's going to beat them is themselves, and that's what happened tonight. We made more mistakes than they did. It's a 10-9 ballgame but we made enough mistakes that we gave them a minimum of three runs, so it shouldn't have been 10-9. That's why you play the game and we've got to overcome those mistakes."

The Bulldogs will likely have a few more chances to get revenge on Kewaunee, with a June 4 non-conference matchup on the schedule and a potential matchup in regionals down the line.

Bethany Ahrens started the game pitching for Peshtigo and went 2-for-3 with a three-RBI home run and two walks at the plate.

Allison Peters went 2-for-3 with two walks and two runs and Karli Cahill was 3-for-5 with three singles.



Wausaukee Survives Crivitz in One Run Thriller

The Wausaukee Ranger softball team survives a last inning rally by the Wolverines Thursday night to bag the one-run win in Wausaukee 7-6.

The Wolverines were first on the board with a Brooke McFadden run off a Riley Mueller single.

Crivitz increased the lead by three in the fourth inning when McFadden singled and Mueller walked followed by Raegen Nelsen on a two-run single.

Wausaukee although had something up their sleeve, starting the rally in the fourth with one run and then again in the sixth where they caught the Wolverine lead with six runs.

Rachel Schlies took the win for the Rangers allowing seven hits, six runs (three earned), and seven walks while striking out five.

Mueller took the pitching loss allowing nine hits, seven runs (six earned), and five walks while striking out four.

At the plate, Wausaukee's Melody Schaal posted a two for three performance with one run and one RBI. Amber Caylor was two for three while Rachel Schlies was one for four with one run and one RBI.

Crivitz's Lexi Franzmeier was three for four with one run.

Niagara Blanks Gillett/Suring

The Niagara Badgers blanked the Gillett/Suring Eagles Thursday night when they handed the visiting Hornets a 15-0 loss.

The loss saw the Badgers post four first-inning runs while increasing the lead to nine in the third inning.

With a six-run fourth inning, the Badgers had everything they needed to end the game early 15-0.

Noelle Champagne posted the pitching win for the Badgers allowing just one hit on the day and walking two while striking out eight.

At the plate, Niagara's Jadah McCarthy was two for three with three runs and one RBI. Aiva Chapeau posted a two-for-three effort with two runs and two RBIs while Noelle Champagne was two for three with two runs and one RBI.

Gillett/Suring's Krueger was one for one.



Wausaukee Falls to Powerful Coleman

The Wausaukee Rangers were unable to keep up with the league-leading Coleman Cougars Friday evening when they saw the Cougars reach double digits in the 15-4 loss.

The Cougars took the win behind some great pitching from Chloe Dufeck who allowed five hits and two earned runs in her four innings while striking out three.

At the plate, Coleman's Michaela Zeitler posted a triple and an in-the-park homer while getting two RBIs and three runs. Cameron Compe hit a single while getting two RBIs and one run.



Oconto Slaps Sevastopol With Loss

The Oconto Blue Devils handed the Sevastopol Pioneers a 13-3 loss Monday night in Oconto.

Oconto started their winning effort off in the first inning where they posted two runs.

The Pioneers responded with a two-run top of the third, while Oconto retook the lead 3-2 in the bottom of the third with one run.

The Devils then posted three in the third and four in the fourth before wrapping things up with a four-run fifth inning.

Taking the pitching win was Oconto's A. Schleuter who allowed three hits, three runs (two earned), and four walks while striking out one.



Gillett/Suring Beats Lena/STAA

The Gillett/Suring Hornets took their share of runs in their showdown with the Lena/St. Thomas Aquinas Cavilers Monday, winning the match up 17-2.

The Hornets posted eight first-inning runs while getting another six in the second. With another three runs, the game was well in hand and over by the third inning.

Lena/STAA's Knox took the loss allowing five hits, 17 runs (15 earned), and 18 walks while striking out two.

Umentum posted the win for the Hornets allowing one hit, two earned runs, and seven walks while striking out two.



Florence Defeats Wausaukee

The Florence Bobcats went wild on the Wausaukee Rangers Tuesday night in Wausaukee when they handed the home field Rangers the 14-1 loss.

Wausaukee scored their one and only run of the night in the first inning where Rachel Schlies singled and was brought in by Amber Caylor on a triple.

The Bobcats posted two runs in the first and two in the second before getting a 10 run fifth inning.

Schlies took the loss for the Rangers pitching five innings and allowing six hits, 14 runs (nine earned), and three strikeouts.

Sid Tomczack took the win for the Bobcats allowing six hits, one earned run, and one walk while striking out three.



Coleman Splits DH With Laona/Wabeno

The Coleman Cougars took a win and a loss against the Laona/Wabeno Rebels Tuesday evening, winning game one 2-0 before falling in game two 7-3.

Game one saw Coleman's Chloe Dufeck pitch three innings and allowed one hit and one walk while Courtney DenRuyter got the pitching to save allowing one walk and no hits while striking out one.

Game two saw The Cougars fall as pitcher DenRuyter took the loss allowing three walks and eight hits along with four earned runs. She struck out one.



Peshtigo's Offense Overpowers Crivitz With 20 Run Start

Grace Wickman led off Tuesday's game against Crivitz with a leadoff home run. That would be a sign of what was to come for the Peshtigo Bulldogs.

The Bulldogs racked up 20 runs in the first inning to put the game away early. The Bulldogs had 13 hits in the game, including home runs by Wickman and Karli Cahill.

Wickman went 2-for-3 with three runs and three RBIs, Cahill had four RBIs and three runs scored on a 1-for-2 day, Bethany Ahrens went 2-for-3 with three runs and an RBI, Allison Dudka was 2-for-4 with two runs and two RBIs, Emma Gilligan was 2-for-3 with two runs scored and three RBIs and Lexi Kehoe scored three times and plated one on a 2-for-2 day.

Allison Peters pitched a three-inning one-hitter, with that one hit coming around to score after a walk and an error.



Ahrens No-Hitter Pushes Peshtigo Past Gibraltar

Bethany Ahrens slung a no-hitter and Grace Wickman popped a two-run home run as the Peshtigo Bulldogs beat Gibraltar 10-0 in a non-conference matchup on Monday.

Ahrens doubled in Allison Peters with two outs in the first inning, and that was enough offense for Ahrens and the Bulldogs, as she would go the distance of six innings, striking out a whopping 14 batters and allowing just two baserunners, both via the walk. She struck out the side three times in six innings.

Offensively, the Bulldogs would add three more runs in the first inning, with Allison Dudka and Ahrens scoring on an Emma Gilligan single and Sydney Lund scoring on an RBI from Lexi Kehoe.

Peshtigo was scoreless in the second and third, but added four more in the fourth, with Wickman's two-run home run the exclamation point.

Peshtigo got its ninth and 10th runs to end things in six when Ahrens singled home Allison Peters and scored when Dudka reached on an error.

Ahrens went 3-for-4 with three RBIs and two runs, Peters was 2-for-4 with two runs, Gilligan was 2-for-2 with a run and two RBIs, and Wickman was 1-for-4 with her two-run shot.
