Coleman Ends Peshtigo's Season With 9-1 Win In

Regional Semi's


The Coleman Cougars plated four in the first inning and never looked back to knock off the Peshtigo Bulldogs in regional semifinal action Tuesday.

Tyler Blanchard singled home two in the first inning to get things started for Coleman. He would finish with three RBIs and a run scored on a 1-for-4 day. Will Bieber was one runner to cross the plate in the first, starting his 3-for-4 day. He also stole four bases and scored three runs.

On the mound, Karson Casper outdueled Jake Berth, allowing five hits and one run over six innings, striking out six. Ray Lemieux finished things off with one inning of relief.

One thing that helped the Coleman pitchers was their ability to throw strikes. Of Casper's 91 pitches, 63 went for strikes. Lemieux fired 20 strikes on 26 pitches.

Berth allowed seven runs on eight hits over his five innings of work. Six runs were earned.

Zack Wallin and Trevor Walters had multi-hit days for Peshtigo.

"It's unfortunate to see our season end today. We didn't play our "A' game today, and against a good opponent, you have to be sharp from the get-go. We gave up four right away in the first then it was a tight game after that. Unfortunately, that first inning haunted us the rest of the game," Peshtigo coach Neal Henrigillis said. "I'm proud of the team and the four seniors. The 10 other returning players for the 2022 year will have to put a lot of work in this offseason so we can take the next step to compete for regionals and conference titles."



Lena/STAA Balks Away With Win Over Wausaukee

The Lena/St. Thomas Aquinas Cavaliers were the victors in a WIAA regional match-up with the Wausaukee Rangers 11-10.

"It was another close one," said Lena/STAA head coach Jack Farley. "Getting a playoff win is huge for this team. For Lena/STAA it's been a while. I know we can go further."

The Cavaliers set the tone with two runs in the first inning. Logan Shallow scored the run after hitting a single and working his way around the bases before an error gave him the opening he needed to score. While Lane Whiting got home with a Wausaukee balk giving extra bases to get another score.

"We were in a position tonight where our pitchers were pitching from ahead," said Farley. "Instead of pitching from behind. We just need to be more efficient with our bullpen, we went through too many pitchers tonight."

The two-run lead didn't hold long though as the Rangers fired back in the top of the second inning. Wausaukee's Danny Suennen, Nathan Shaw, and Layne Rowley all crossed the plate for a lead. While in the bottom of the second inning the Cavvies were able to answer the Rangers with Griffen Knox, Bryce Kittridge, and Lucas Hofer all making a trip around the bases.

In the third inning, the Cavvies were able to keep the Rangers off the board. Lena/STAA however was not done adding runs to the board. Starting the scoring again in the fourth inning the Cavvies saw Anthony Seefeldt and Ethan Russel retake the lead.

The Cavvies' defense began to struggle in the fourth inning where the Rangers were able to begin their climb back in the game. Kam Stumbris drove a base hit to leftfield. Brendan Versaskas was up to bat next and was able to blast one past centerfield to score a run. Will Koester was up next with a sacrifice pop fly scoring another run, making the score 7-5. Lena/STAA was able to answer in the bottom of the fourth starting with Lane Whiting getting on base with a hit to leftfield. Wausaukee then walked Logan Graef and Griffen Knox. Then Bryce Kittredge banged a base hit to centerfield and scored a run, while a wild throw scored another run for the Cavvies. Ethan Russell's base hit earned him an RBI. The Rangers were finally able to end the inning with their catcher Dominick Brunette making a play on a foul ball, ending the inning with the Cavvies leading 11-5.

In the fifth inning, the Rangers were able to make some moves to get back into the game. Connor Schroeder and Nathan Shaw made their way around the bases to a score of 11-7. Wausaukee also held the Cavvies scoreless in the bottom of the inning with three up and three down.

"We battled back tonight," said Wausaukee head coach Jon Betts. "We got down and the game looked like it was over but we kept battling back. We just kept fighting and I'm proud of them. We just left too many guys on tonight," said Betts. "We put the ball in play and put pressure on them. It wasn't the most well-pitched game but both teams had very few errors."

It's a good thing that the Cavvies came out strong at the beginning of the game because towards the end of the game their bats fizzled and the pitchers struggled. Logan Shallow and Logan Graef both struggled to pitch to the Rangers. Though the Cavvies defense was able to hold Wausaukee in the top of the sixth inning. The Rangers were able to keep the Cavvies scoreless for the rest of the game.

The seventh inning brought three more runs for the Rangers with Schroeder, Stubris, and Wokcik all making it around the bases, tallying a final score of 11-10, Cavvies win.



Oconto Takes Down Gillett/Suring in

Regional Action


The Gillett/Suring Hornets faced off with the Oconto Blue Devils for a WIAA postseason showdown that saw the Blue Devils win 5-1.

"I give Gillett/Suring pitcher credit," said Oconto head coach Tom Armstrong. "He competed very well tonight and threw a great curveball. When we did hit tonight we just seemed to hit straight at them. Sometimes that's the way it goes."

Oconto started the scoring with a first-inning Luke Krueger run. Krueger reached when hit a double and was later brought in by Alex Fuller on another double.

Fuller got home shortly after when Caleb Moe swatted a single.

During the third inning, Kruger hit a home run for the 3-0 lead.

Logan Allen jumped into the mix during the fifth inning where he doubled to reach base for Oconto then skirted home when Krueger hit a single.

Oconto posted one final run in the sixth thanks to Braden Shallow who reached off a walk and later scored.

"We gave up that one run in the last inning which bothered me, '' said Armstrong. "When we play Crivitz we can't give up cheap runs."

Gillett/Suring's Keagen Rattin posted the only run of the night for his team, reaching base off a single.

"We are one of the least experienced teams in the state when it comes to innings played," said Gillett/Suring head coach Joe Lojpersberger. "For us to come out here and play good ball with a school that is perennially a great baseball program is huge for us. We can build off this."



Peshtigo Crushes Crandon in Regional Opener

The Peshtigo Bulldogs handled their business against Crandon in their first round of regional play on Thursday, winning by an 11-0 final.

After a scoreless first, Peshtigo scored 10 runs in the second inning to blow the game open, then adding one more in the third for good measure.

Zack Wallin scored twice in the game, as did Koby Cuyler, who also added two RBIs on a 1-for-3 day. Landon Lemke went 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBIs and Collin McMahon had two RBIs and a run scored. Ryan VanVooren scored twice as well.

McMahon's two-strike, two-RBI single opened the floodgates, coach Neal Henrigillis said. That's a product of his hard work and attitude all year, the Bulldog head coach said.

"Collin McMahon is always the last guy at practice cleaning up, he's sweeping out the dugout, he does every single thing you want him to do, so Collin has earned the chance to play," Henrigillis said. "He got up there with two strikes on him and he hit a nice ground ball through the infield to get two runs in and that kind of broke the seal for us, which kind of got the floodgates open. We hit a lot of nice ground balls, which puts a lot of pressure on the defense, and then we got a lot of doubles, we hit a home run tonight, but it all starts with putting the ball in play. You've got to hit the ball in play, put pressure on the defense, and then everyone just kind of takes that collective breath, like "OK we've got a couple runs,' and then we can kind of go to hitting."

Jake Berth tossed four scoreless innings to get the win, striking out four and allowing two hits. He walked one.

"I'm really proud of Jake the way he's pitched all year long," Henrigillis said. "Jake has been our best pitcher as far as throwing strikes. Jake's won big games for us, and for a guy who did not get to pitch at all last year as a sophomore, Jake stepped up into a big moment tonight. First playoff game as a junior and he didn't seem phased at all by that. That just kind of speaks to Jake's demeanor. He's kind of a flatliner in the best way possible. He takes every moment in stride."

Henrigillis said it was the most complete game he has seen his team play this year, between the strong pitching, 11-run offensive performance, and good defense toward the end of the game.



Wausaukee Wins Quarterfinal Over Florence

The Wausaukee Rangers took the win in, thanks to a walk-off single at the end of the game to defeat Florence Thursday in Wausaukee. The game was tied at six with The Rangers batting in the bottom of the eighth when Alex Wojcik singled, scoring one run.

Wausaukee was boosted by Brenden Versaskas who singled in the first, doubled in the third, singled in the fourth, and singled in the sixth.

The Rangers got things moving in the first inning, when Wojcik grounded out, scoring one run.

Wausaukee then evened things up at six in the bottom of the sixth inning. Versaskas drove in two when Versaskas singled.

Florence scored three runs in the third inning. Logan Schuls, Cody Reubens, and Kyle Leffler each had RBIs in the big inning.

Wojcik was on the hill for Rangers. The righty lasted three and two-thirds innings, allowing four hits and three runs while striking out two.

Cole Sweig started the game for Florence. The hurler allowed six runs on nine hits over six innings, striking out two. Tyler Novak threw one inning in relief out of the bullpen.

Wausaukee collected ten total hits. Versaskas, Conner Schroeder, and Kamden Stumbris each managed multiple hits for the Rangers. Versaskas went 4-for-4 at the plate

Schuls led Florence with two hits in five at-bats.



Oconto Falls Drops Regional To New London

The Oconto Falls Panthers saw their season end on a loss last Thursday when they traveled to New London. There they were handed a 4-1 loss by the New London boys.

The Panthers were first to score getting one in during the first inning. Jake Seager reached on a single before scoring on Tucker Bouche's RBI triple.

New London took the lead in the third with a two-run effort. Andrew Parker hit a single to bring in one while Jackson Field scored on his in the park home run.

For the Panthers, Tucker Bouche had the only RBI of the game when he tripled in the first inning.

New London's Jackson Field had two RBIs while also getting an in-the-park home run.

Connor Brinkman took the pitching win for Oconto Falls allowing four hits, one earned run, and one walk while striking out eight.

Oconto Falls' Bouche took the loss allowing four hits, four runs (two earned), and two walks while striking out 10 on the day.
