Bulldogs Hold off Wolverines for 56-49 Win

Issue Date: December 22, 2021

Boys Basketball

The Crivitz Wolverines gave their old M&O Conference foes from Peshtigo all they could handle Tuesday, but Peshtigo came away with a 56-49 win.

It was the Wolverines that struck first, taking an 8-2 early lead. That lead would wane to 10-9 quickly, with a bucket from Kaine Fort getting Peshtigo to within a point. Crivitz held on and built the lead back up to five, but Peshtigo tied the game at 20 and took the lead 23-22. They would push forward to take a 30-22 lead into halftime.

"They actually jumped on us pretty good to start the game. We were down (8-2) to start the game. That's the first time in a year and a half my guys didn't come ready to play. We had to claw and fight our way back in the game and I thought we did a pretty good job of that to end the first half," Peshtigo coach Jason Boucher said. "Give Crivitz credit. They're always scrappy, they always play hard, they're aggressive on defense, but at the end of the day, a win's a win, even though it's not the way we wanted it."

"There was about a six-minute stretch near the end of the first half, it went from 22-12 or 22-14 all of the sudden to 30-22," Crivitz coach Jeff Bauman said. "It was a bad run there for us. They made some good adjustments, started flooding their offense into the lane and we gave up some easy baskets in the paint."

Forced turnovers helped Crivitz contain Peshtigo in the first half. The Bulldogs have averaged about 12 turnovers per game in the early part of the 2021 season, but they turned the ball over that many times in the first half alone on Tuesday. They regrouped and only turned the ball over a couple times in the second half.

Peshtigo's lead first hit double digits with the lead at 40-29 on a 3-pointer by Mauz Salem. Bauman called a timeout to regroup, and Crivitz started to chip away at the lead.

Cashton Mertens made it a seven-point game at 46-39, and Crivitz cut the lead to 48-46 a few minutes later on a bucket from Tegan Werner. They were never able to tie the game or take a lead, and Peshtigo held on with a couple of late free throws.

Bauman said his team had some trouble with the Bulldogs' size, with two six-foot-nine players in Collin Engman and Kaine Fort. He said it was the best he had seen the pair play, and Boucher agreed.

Engman led the team with 10 rebounds, including four offensive rebounds. Fort scored six early points, but faced foul trouble in the second half and didn't play much.

The duo only scored a combined 16 points, with eight each. Mauz Salem was the Bulldogs' biggest offensive threat in the game, scoring 15 points on 5-of-7 shooting, including going 3-for-3 from deep and 2-for-2 at the free throw line.

"Tonight, Mauz Salem played like a senior. He played probably one of his best games that I've seen in a long time," Boucher said. "He finally started to shoot the basketball, knocked a couple shots in and hit a couple free throws at the end, and he played really good defense on (Tegan) Werner, so I was happy."

Werner went 4-for-14 from the field for 12 points. Sean Christiansen scored 16 on a 7-for-17 night. Mertens scored nine points on 4-for-6 shooting.

Peshtigo (5-0) is still undefeated after the win, with one game left before Christmas, a Thursday matchup with Sturgeon Bay.

"A sloppy win, but a win's a win," Boucher said.



Cougars Crush Rangers

in M&O Home Victory


Coleman has a seat at the top of the M&O Conference table after a 94-29 demolishing of Wausaukee on Thursday.

Within the first seven minutes, Coleman led 30-4. By halftime, the Cougars held a 55-16 lead.

Coleman had another good scoring output in the second half with 39 more points. It was probably their best offensive output of the season.

"We did score some points. I was worried that we wouldn't score that much," Coleman coach Jeff Bronson said. "I knew it was going to be physical because I knew they were going to be bigger, stronger, faster than us, and I wasn't sure where we were going to find these points from."

Coleman found those points on a 40-for-77 shooting night, making nine 3-pointers on the night. Logan Kurth scored 21 points to lead all scorers.

Noah Nosgovitz scored 14, Joe Olsen had 11, Mitchell VanDeWalle scored nine and Trent Mongin had eight. Eli Zablocki and Liam Zeitler each scored six.

Wausaukee, on the other hand, faced a tough Coleman zone. Coach Jon Betts said they haven't seen much zone in the early part of the season, but he was happy with how his team handled it.

"The team really responded. They made the extra pass very well tonight where they didn't settle for the first pass and an open look," he said. "They made the extra pass almost all night long, so they took an OK look and then passed it to a better look, so that was one of the best things we saw tonight. We commented on that in the locker room at the end of the game, how they made the extra pass tonight."

Wausaukee's leading scorer was Layne Rowley, who scored 10 points. Danny Suennen ended the game with nine and Kayden Suennen had six.

Despite the big win, Bronson talked after the game about the improvements his team can still make.

"We know what we are, we know we've got a lot of work to do. We've got to keep our heads up and keep going back to work, because these guys will get better," he said. "I've got freshmen and sophomores out there playing. It's going to be tough, it's not a lot of fun, but you've got to keep working."

The Cougars are undefeated in conference play at 3-0 (5-0 overall). The Rangers are 0-4 in conference play.

Ethan Braley scored 17 for STAA, with 15 in the second half on five 3-pointers. Teagan Anderson chipped in 10, including eight in the second half.

G-P had just one player score more than one bucket in the second half, but they had done their damage. Jacob Kessel and Ethan Roff each scored 10, Ryan Erickson had nine and Owen Wysocki had eight.
