Peshtigo's Lund Scores 40 in Win Over Southern Door

Issue Date: December 9, 2021

Girls Basketball

A 40-burger from Sydney Lund led Peshtigo to an 83-50 win over Southern Door on Friday.

Lund scored 17 in the first half and then dropped 23 on Southern Door in the second half, playing just a little over half the minutes in the frame. She made 10 of her 12 free throw attempts in the game.

Peshtigo coach Bruce Parkovich has lauded Lund's ability to draw free throws and capitalize on them.

"Sydney just works extremely hard, and it pays dividends because she'll take the ball to the basket and she can make free throws, too," Parkovich said after the win last week.

Emma Gilligan also scored 15 points on five made 3-pointers. Riley Ellie added seven.

Lund's 40 was the most impressive scoring tally in the game, but not the only strong performance. Southern Door's Kendra Shimon scored 24, including 16 in the second half.



Maroons Drop Season-

Opener to Game-Tested

Hawks 60-39


Menominee started its season Thursday with a 60-39 loss to an Xavier team that has a few weeks' headstart on the Maroons.

This was the Maroons' first game of the year, while Xavier was playing in its sixth contest.

The Hawks put full-court pressure on the Maroons throughout the game, leading to steals and points on the other end. The Hawks had a 20-11 lead by the end of the first quarter.

After a slower second quarter, Xavier led 27-18. Menominee trailed by as many as 15 in the third quarter but got the game back to nine by the fourth quarter, but Xavier's constant pressure was too much to come back from, as the Hawks eventually pulled away with a 60-39 win.

The Hawks got 25 steals in the game, including an incredible 14 steals by Carsyn Stempa.

"We knew they were going to press us full-court all game, and it's really hard to simulate that in practice, their speed, their intensity, but for the four quarters, I thought we handled their intensity and their pressure very well for our first game," Maroons coach Lucas Chouinard said.

Xavier was led by 12 points from both Molly Martine and Stempa, who were 5-for-12 and 5-for-10 from the field, respectively. Halle VandeHey scored 11 points on 4-for-10 shooting, adding a team-high nine rebounds.

Menominee will hope to bounce back from the loss and start moving along the learning curve.

"You obviously want to win, but at the same time, you take a lot out of this game, out of losses. For the first game, playing a team at the caliber of Appleton Xavier, I thought we did a good job of breaking their press at times, then at times, we struggled. It's a huge learning curve for us for how we need to handle pressure a little bit better and take better advantage of situations when they present themselves," Chouinard said. "Like I told them in the locker room, it's going to take us time. This was their sixth game, this was our first game, so we have a lot to learn from now until our sixth game, so hopefully we'll be there at that point in time, but I'm very proud of the effort. The girls had a great effort and they never gave up. We made a little run in the third quarter which kind of got it to within nine I think, so I'm very proud of how they fought and how they came back, it's just we've got to get those moments, and we've got to make more good moments together instead of compounding those bad moments."



Bears Pull Away From

Bulldogs Late in Non-

Conference Contest


Peshtigo couldn't contain Allaina Robaidek in a 75-60 loss to Bonduel on Monday.

Robaidek scored 30 points in the game, including nine free throw makes over the course of 13 attempts and two made 3-pointers. Three more Bonduel players finished in double figures as well.

"We make a lot of mistakes, and at times, we make up for them, but there's a few times where that Robaidek got past us, she's quick and she's got a nice soft touch, and we just didn't help enough on her," Peshtigo coach Bruce Parkovich said. "I don't think the score indicates how the game was, because it was much closer than that. After a while, you start to foul, and they make most of their free throws, but we got down and we hung in there. They're very good, and we haven't played anybody real good for a while. That's a learning experience for our girls right now."

Peshtigo hung around for most of the game, with the score teetering between three points and seven for most of the first half.

Early in the second half, Peshtigo hit a wall offensively and Bonduel went ahead 54-41 on a 3-pointer by Kylie Hoffman.

Peshtigo got the game back to 59-55 with less than seven minutes left, and made it a one-score game at 61-58, but the Bulldogs got just two points over the final five minutes or so.

"At times, we played pretty good defense. They're much taller than we were," Parkovich said. "For the most part, I thought we did a lot of good things, but it's just that against a good team, if you have a lull like we did where all of a sudden they score six or seven straight points and maybe they were three at the time, now they're up 10. Now you're really fighting to get back in the ballgame then."

The offensive standout for Peshtigo was Emma Gilligan, who scored 20 points, making six of her 10 3-point attempts in the game. She's elevated her game from downtown in her senior year.

"I'm happy because it's what I've been working for. It's all paying off, and it's my senior year, so I like it," she said. "Everything is working smooth and it feels good. I get the ball, I get set and I'm just cashing it out."

Sydney Lund added 12 points, as did Jaci Tonn.



Wolverines Post Home

Win Over Wildcats


Lena struggled to score in a 49-32 loss to Crivitz on Friday.

The Wildcats fell behind early and never made it back into the ballgame. Crivitz led 16-7 on a bucket from Kate Richlen, who led all scorers with 11 points. The lead would first hit double figures at 22-11, and by half the score was 28-16.

The lead approached 20 early in the second half, and the Wolverines never looked like turning back.

Crivitz was 20-for-50 shooting from the field, while Lena was just 10-for-60. Lena's leading scorers were Natalie McNurlen, Whitney Potter and Chaela Rabas, who each scored seven on a combined 6-for-33 shooting.

"It's hard to win when you can't put the ball in the basket, and we struggled shooting again. You can't miss forever," Lena coach Tim Goldschmidt said. "We're struggling right now to find ourselves. We just talked about it in the locker room. The first two games, we started out with physical teams and we kind of backed down from it and played a little bit scared. It's early in the season yet. We'll be fine."

The Wolverines are expecting big things this year, with a mix of young depth and four seniors.

Lucy Gruszynski had seven points and Kyle Chilcote had eight in Friday's win. McKenna Sellen chipped in six.

"There's a lot of players that can help. It's been a long time since we've had really 10 or 12 players that can come into a game and you don't really see a huge difference, which is good," Crivitz coach Brett Meyers said. "Our non-conference games are going to be tough, but I predict that we'll hold our own in our conference. I feel like there's a lot of good things that are yet to come and a lot of players that are going to continue to get better. We're old, meaning we have four seniors, and we're young, meaning that I play freshmen and sophomore pretty consistently."

Even so far in the young season, he likes what he has seen.

"We are a work in progress, so we have flashes of looking really good, and then we have flashes of being really young and inexperienced," he said. "Overall, when I look at what we saw two weeks ago, last week and today, I'm happy with that, but you're always working to get better. I've got a lot of players that can do a lot of good things."

By games end the Wolverines were led by Nilea Guns with 15 points.



Coleman Tops

Niagara 54-45

Bintz led the team with eight rebounds, also posting four assists and a 4-for-8 shooting line.

Chenier Leads Marinette

to Win Over Little Chute


Defense led the way for both teams as Marinette defeated Little Chute in a 29-25 rock fight on Thursday.

Neither team was able to get much going offensively in the game. Marinette went 11-for-62 from the field, with Hannah Chenier taking 26 shots to lead the team. She scored 17 points on seven made field goals, along with one free throw.

Marinette made just four of its 15 free throw attempts.

Chenier led the team with 11 rebounds, nearly posting a triple-double with nine steals in the contest. Marinette had 22 steals as a team.

Lindsey Wingender grabbed nine boards. Riley Kieffer was the team's second-leading scorer with five points.

Little Chute's Kim Guillen scored 15 points on 5-for-10 shooting from the field and 5-for-9 shooting from the charity stripe.

Lena Rallies in

Second Half

to Defeat Suring


The Lena offense found its groove a little bit in the second half of Monday's 47-33 win over Suring.

Lena trailed 19-16 at halftime, but while the Suring offensive attack sputtered in the second half, the Wildcats got going.

Lena took the lead at 22-19, and the game remained close, as Lena led 29-25. However, the Wildcats would pull away from that point to take a 42-28 lead.

Chaela Rabas carried the offensive weight in the first half for Lena, scoring nine of her team-high 10 points.

Whitney Potter scored eight of her nine in the second half and Natalie McNurlen got seven of her nine in the second. Eva Brooks scored all seven of her points in the second half as well.

For Suring, three players scored six: Hailey Thomson, Macie Reed and Christine Sleeter.

In total, the Blue Devils had 21 steals and 49 rebounds.

They also attempted 61 field goals and 41 free throws, making 28 and 20, respectively.
