Bulldogs Sneak Past Maroons, Take Tri-City Series

Issue Date: December 30, 2021

Girls Basketball

Peshtigo picked up a gritty 46-43 win over Menominee on Tuesday night in a game where they played up to the physicality and intensity of the Maroons.

The Bulldogs aren't exactly known for their bruising style of play, as they usually get a high percentage of their points from the 3-point line, while Menominee is typically a more physical team. They still made seven 3-pointers Tuesday, but the Bulldogs surprised the Maroons a bit with their play.

Menominee coach Lucas Chouinard said that based on the film he's seen of the Bulldogs, they're a finesse team that likes to run in transition and shoot the 3-pointer.

"They matched our physicality," he said. "We knew coming in our plan was to establish ourselves down low and we didn't do a great job of that early, but I thought we did a better job of that in the second half. Kennedy (Olson) really commanded a lot of attention down low, which is what we wanted, and that allowed some other players to flourish on the perimeter as well."

Despite their shortcomings in the first half, Menominee led 21-20 at the halftime break after Anna Axtell hit a late 3-pointer.

The teams battled back and forth early in the second half. Peshtigo took a 25-21 lead on a bucket from Sydney Lund, but Menominee tied it up at 25, then took a 30-27 lead on a triple from Olson.

Peshtigo flipped the score with a pair of triples by Jaci Tonn, and the Bulldogs would lead for the rest of the game, though it wasn't easy.

Chouinard was happy with how his team battled. Peshtigo took a 43-36 lead with three minutes left, but the Maroons didn't let the game get away. In fact, they had the ball with a two-point deficit and 38.7 seconds to go, but they would turn the ball over.

With less than a second left and a three-point hole, Menominee got one last chance to tie the game, but Axtell's 3-pointer rimmed out and Peshtigo picked up the win.

She finished with nine points, while Olson scored 18, including 14 in the second half.

"They were certainly a physical team. We had to come out and match it," Peshtigo coach Lance Pesch said, noting that his team overcame some mistakes in the game as well. "I'm just proud of the girls."

Lund's 14 points led the Bulldogs. Emma Gilligan scored 12 and Tonn had 10.

It was also good for a team like Menominee to get a tough non-conference game in before heading into Great Northern Conference play.

"It's great for us to be in a tough game like this where it's back and forth and very competitive. You see a lot of what we have as a team, our makeup, our DNA," Chouinard said. "Being down seven at one point, it can go one of two ways. Either we can pack it in and give up, or our girls fought right to the end. It shows a lot of the makeup of our girls and the positive things we can look for in the future."



Bulldogs Recover

From Slow Start To

Take Down Wolverines


Despite spotting Crivitz 10 quick points to start out Thursday night's game, Peshtigo came back to win by 19 points, 55-36.

Crivitz scored the first 10 points of the game. Peshtigo would score 10 of the next 11 points, however, taking a 14-12 lead on a 3-pointer by Akira Smalls. The Bulldogs scored the next 11 points to extend to a 25-12 lead.

At the half, Peshtigo held a 28-19 lead, which they extended in the second half, though it wasn't without a little bit of stress.

The Wolverines would cut the lead to 12, but couldn't close down the Bulldogs any further.

"We didn't start out so good, but we got under control. We've got to still work on our free throws, but they missed a few too. I think we came out strong in the second half, which helped a lot, but we couldn't get rid of them," Peshtigo coach Bruce Parkovich said. "All of the sudden, you look up, it's 12 and you think we're scoring, then it's still 12. I was afraid they were going to make a run at us."

Peshtigo was 15-for-34 on free throws in the game.

Smalls and Emma Gilligan each scored 11 for Peshtigo. Brooklyn Phillips and Sydney Lund each added nine and Allison Peters scored eight.

Mckenna Sellen led Crivitz with 10 points. Cilena Guns scored six, while Bailey Jose-Bemis and Kate Richlen each added five.

Cougars Come

Away With a Split

at Elcho Tourney


The Coleman Cougars picked up their first loss of the season on Tuesday, a 55-44 loss to Newman Catholic at the Elcho Tournament, but they responded to beat Elcho 63-22 later in the day.

Coleman fell behind 22-18 at halftime in its loss to Newman Catholic on Tuesday, then was outscored 33-26 in the second half.

The Cougars' leading scorer was Aubrey Bintz, who scored 12. Kiersten Jensen and Cameron Zeitler each scored six and Desiree Nowak added six.

The Cougars quickly put that game behind them against Elcho, jumping out to a 34-11 lead by halftime. They held Elcho to only 11 points in the second half as well.

Three Cougars hit double figure scoring totals in the game. Nowak and Zeitler each scored 12 and Bintz got 10. Jensen's eight and Madelyn Hinther's six rounded out Coleman's top five scoring totals.

Jenna Styczynski and Hope King scored five and four, respectively.



Maroons Maul

Marines for Twin

Cities Bragging Rights


It may have been the night before Christmas Eve, but there was no lack of focus for the Menominee girls on Thursday, as they cruised to a 67-36 non-conference win over Marinette.

The Maroons stormed out to a 24-6 lead pretty quickly and never looked back. By halftime, the lead still sat at 18, with a 31-13 Menominee advantage.

In the second half, Menominee extended its lead into the 20s and eventually up over 30. The win doesn't help the Maroons toward their Great Northern Conference goals, but it does build some confidence and give them twin city bragging rights.

"Any time you can beat Marinette, it's a great feeling," Menominee coach Lucas Chouinard said. "I'm very proud of the girls. They've been working really hard over this week and really been striving to do well this week, so we're really proud to come into their gym and get a win."

Marinette was playing the game a bit shorthanded, and the Marines do have a young roster. With that in mind, Marinette coach Zac Barker did see some positives in the loss.

"We had people playing different spots on defense that haven't been there yet this year," he said. "It's just something, you've got to learn and adapt and make your team better once and if you're able to get back to full strength. Some of the younger players, some of the freshmen got some minutes they normally aren't getting, and I thought they stepped up and played well."

Marinette's Riley Kieffer was also a bright spot, as she led the team with 16 points. No other Marine scored more than four.

"She stepped up tonight. That's good to see that there's some fight from some of those younger ones," Barker said. "Menominee's a very physical team and they play aggressive in the 2-3, gave us some trouble there as well. I thought some of our freshmen handled that. It's the first time we've seen a 2-3 all year."

Marinette did struggle at the free throw line again, finishing 5-for-13 at the line. They're shooting around 45% from the charity stripe on the year. The Marines haven't been able to finish off some of the steals they've forced on defense either.

"We showed some toughness at times there and gave them fits with our defense," Barker said. "The difficult thing is we've got to convert more off those steals and deflections. We're leaving way too many points at the free throw line in particular.

Menominee's Anna Nerat led all scorers with 19. Madison Derusha scored 13 and Kennedy Olson added 10.

Menominee also faced Peshtigo on Tuesday. They lost that one 46-43, but the Maroons will still be feeling good going into GNC play.

"It's great for us working on these non-conference games. You can kind of get the kinks out right away, and I can honestly say the girls are working hard each day," Chouinard said. "Each game, we're seeing little improvements, whether that be offense or defense, and we're really setting up good for our conference season."



Niagara Drops

Non-Conference Match

Up with Three Lakes


Three Lakes handed the Niagara Lady Badgers just their second loss of the season on Tuesday, a 48-42 defeat.

The first half was the more high-scoring half, with Three Lakes leading 34-26 at the break. The two teams combined for just 30 points in the second half.

Josie Rock scored a team-high 14 for Niagara. Abby Wells and Mallory Sanicki each got nine points.

Three Lakes' Kara Sowinski scored a game-high 15.

The game was played at Niagara High School.



Panthers Fall to

Hawks in Overtime


It took an extra five minutes to separate Shawano and Oconto Falls after a hard-fought game at the Kress Center in Green Bay on Tuesday. In the end, Shawano came away with the 51-47 victory.

The teams were hardly separated throughout the game, with neither team building a lead bigger than five at any point after an early 10-3 Panthers lead.

Neither team scored in the final 100 seconds of the game. After Kati Raddatz scored to give Oconto Falls a 45-42 advantage late, Brianna Wright scored an and-one bucket to tie the game at 45, where it sat going into overtime.

In overtime, Oconto Falls scored just one time, tying the game at 47 on a pair of free throws by Alexis Euclide. Shawano scored the final four points, all on free throws, to get the win.

Raddatz scored 14 points for the Panthers and Hailey Peitersen led the team with 17.

Wright's 19 led all scorers.



Rangers Can't Hold

Off Eagles, Fall 45-41


A five-point second-half advantage was enough to separate Southern Door from Wausaukee in girls' basketball action on Thursday.

Wausaukee, which picked up its second win of the season by beating Stockbridge last week, was beaten by a Southern Door team seeking its second win of the year.

The Rangers led 20-19 at halftime, but Southern Door took the second half 26-21.

The Rangers are off until after the first of the year, when they take on Elcho on Jan. 3.
