Bulldog Top Clipper/Wolves; Fall to Eagles

Issue Date: December 30, 2021

Boys Basketball

Big First Half Propels

Peshtigo Past Algoma


Calling a game a "tale of two halves" can be a sports cliche, but Peshtigo's 67-54 win over Algoma on Monday was characterized by two very different periods.

Peshtigo led 42-13 at halftime after a dominant half on both ends of the floor. The Bulldogs did what they wanted to offensively and held Algoma to a dismal shooting half.

"I'm telling you what, that was fun to watch in the first half. We were locked in on defense tonight in the first half, and we actually did what we were supposed to do on offense: getting shots where we wanted them all the time," Peshtigo coach Jason Boucher said. "We were patient, running our stuff, and I'm telling you, when we play like we did in the first half, not only is it fun to watch, but I think we're a really good basketball team."

The second half was not as good for Peshtigo, as the Bulldogs were outscored 41-25.

"That's probably the first time in a long time we had a lead like that at half, and the second half I don't know what it was. I don't know if we were lackadaisical because we were up by so much, but we've got to put a full game together," Boucher said. "They made it interesting there at the end, the whole second half really, but we weren't Peshtigo Bulldogs in the second half. We got lazy on defense and we were rushing it on offense."

The shooting stats show Peshtigo's dominance. The Bulldogs shot 27-for-48 from the field (56%) to Algoma's 17-for-69 (24%).

Peshtigo also out-rebounded Algoma 41-20.

Peshtigo's Kaine Fort stuffed the stat sheet. He scored a game-high 25 points on 11-for-15 shooting and grabbed 10 rebounds. Landon Lemke scored 15, while Collin Engman and Will McMahon each got eight. Christian Boyle chipped in seven.

Owen Robertson and Kaden Vardon scored 19 and 18 for Algoma, respectively. Carter Zimmerman scored 11 but needed 21 shots to do so. He led Algoma in rebounding with nine.



Blue Devils Rally

Past Cougars

For 64-58 Victory


Oconto's boys defeated Coleman 64-58 on Monday.

Coleman led 35-32 at halftime, but the Blue Devils had the better second half, led by Kadin Baxter and Carter Koch.

Oconto also led early, taking a 21-13 lead in the first half following a Luke Krueger bucket. Koch made a 3-pointer to take a 24-15 lead, after which Coleman took a timeout.

The timeout seemed to help, as Coleman immediately went on a 13-4 run to tie the game at 28, with a Trent Mongin basket tying things up. After Oconto took a one-point lead, the Cougars closed out the half with shots by Mongin and Joe Olson to take a three-point halftime lead.

The two teams battled early in the second half, and sat tied at 42 before the Blue Devils made their run. They scored eight straight points to take a 50-42 advantage, an advantage they would hold for the rest of the game.

Coleman cut the lead to four at a few points, but the Devils made their free throws late to get the win.

Oconto was 10-for-17 shooting free throws in the game. Oconto coach John Moe said he was disappointed that his team made 10 first-half turnovers, but there were brighter spots in the second half, and his team made most of its free throws.

"We've been working a ton on that. Those are getting better," he said. "You've got to take care of the ball and make free throws at the end, and we'll be successful."

Baxter scored 18 points in the game and Koch got 15. Krueger finished the game with 12 and Christian Koch added eight. Will Jendeski chipped in five.

Oconto's offense worked best in transition, when they were able to make steals or get rebounds and pass out quickly.

"We played best when we were going fast, no doubt about it," Moe said. "We have to be able to execute in our secondary transition or in regular offense. That's where we're not doing well right now."

Coleman's Eli Zablocki finished with 18 points to lead the Cougars. Logan Kurth scored 13, Noah Nosgovitz got 10 and Tieg Sadowski scored eight. Mongin got six.

For the Cougars, it was a frustrating offensive night, coach Jeff Bronson said.

"They made more shots, and sometimes it comes down to that," he said. ""We didn't shoot the ball well tonight. We had a lot of opportunities that we missed, for the most part, we've been making those shots. Tonight just wasn't our night, and you could see the level of frustration take over."

Still, it was the Monday after Christmas, and players were still mentally checking back in after the holidays.

"It was a very well-played game coming on the Monday after Christmas," Bronson said. "It's a good way to start the new year and re-focus on some of the things we had to work on, no matter the outcome tonight."



Bulldogs Win on the

Road in Tough Battle

with Clippers


The Peshtigo Bulldogs picked up a gritty 59-52 win over Sturgeon Bay on Thursday night.

The Bulldogs started strong and led early, but the Clippers chipped away and got the lead down to five at halftime, 33-28.

The teams played close in the final period, with Peshtigo holding a 26-24 advantage in the second half.

"Tonight was the first game all season that we actually had a good start. We hit some outside shots to start the game and then we got lackadaisical on defense. They've got some shooters that we left open, and of course they knocked them down and they clawed back in it at halftime," Peshtigo coach Jason Boucher said. "In the second half, we again got lackadaisical with the ball and self-inflicted ourselves with some turnovers and we were lucky enough to hold them off tonight."

The Bulldogs were led by big man Kaine Fort, who scored 14 points. He made three of seven field goals, but went to the line 10 times and made eight.

Fellow 6-foot-9 forward Collin Engman led the team with nine rebounds, scoring two points.

"Offensively, if we stay disciplined and get the ball under the hoop to Collin and Kaine, we're a pretty good offensive team. It seems like at times, we think it's too easy and start doing our own things and we get away from that. Kaine Fort played good again tonight for us and Collin Engman, I think he only had one basket, but he was everywhere on the defensive end changing shots and getting rebounds," Boucher said. "Our bigs played really well tonight. Christian Boyle played well tonight and we actually made free throws at the end to seal it, so I'm pretty happy with our effort tonight."

As a team, Peshtigo was 16-for-25 on free throws. The team shot 42% from the field, making 20 of 47 attempts. The Bulldogs also out-rebounded the Clippers 32-17.

Mauz Salem, Landon Lemke and Boyle got 13, 11 and 10 points for Peshtigo, respectively.

Sturgeon Bay's Spencer Hubbard led his team with 15 points.



Daoust Leads Eagles

Past Wolverines


Crivitz couldn't overcome a 45-point Southern Door first half in a 73-62 loss on Thursday.

Southern Door led 45-32 at halftime behind Drew Daoust's 14 points. He would finish the game with 29 points, the most of any scorer.

In the second half, he scored 15 points, nine of which came at the free throw line on 12 attempts. He made his only free throw in the first half as well.

The Wolverines' leading scorer was Jackson Flowers, who scored 17. Tegan Werner scored 13 and Sean Christiansen had 12. Cashton Mertens and Kaden Spalding scored eight and six, respectively.



Niagara Blasts

North Dickinson 69-25


Three 15-point scorers and a defense that held North Dickinson to just 25 points led Niagara to a 69-25 win on Thursday.

The Badgers' Tommy Martin, Logan Weber and Blake Holmes each scored 15 points in the game, while Nicholas Krueger scored nine and Ed Swanson added six.

Niagara led 40-14 by halftime and kept things going in the second half.

North Dickinson's Colt Glasheen scored 12, and no other player scored more than five. Only five players scored in the loss.



Peshtigo Suffers

First Loss of the Year

at Northland Pines


The Peshtigo Bulldogs suffered their first loss of the season on Tuesday, a 53-49 road loss to Northland Pines.

Peshtigo shot 20-for-52 (38%) from the field to Northland Pines' 18-for-57 (31%). However, Northland Pines made 40% of its 3-pointers, sinking nine of 22 tries. Peshtigo made just two of 17.

Northland Pines was also 8-for-9 on free throws (88%) to Peshtigo's 7-for-13 (53%).

The loss came despite the best effort of Landon Lemke, who scored 26 points. He made 10 of 20 shot attempts and four of seven free throws.

Crhstian Boyle and Kaine Fort had eight and seven points, respectively.

Northland Pines' Griffin Stiemke led the winning team with 23 points.



Wolverines Fall to

Hawks at Sundrop

Shootout Classic


Crivitz struggled to hang with a high-powered Shawano offense in a 79-52 loss at the Sundrop Shootout classic at the Kress Center on Tuesday.

Crivitz scored the first basket of the game through Tegan Werner, but Shawano popped off a 17-2 rally after that to take a 13-point lead. At halftime, Shawano led 42-23, and the lead reached 25 early in the second half. It didn't get any closer than that for the rest of the game.

Shawano's Michael Metcalf-Grassman led all scorers with 30 points.

For Crivitz, Sean Christiansen scored 15 points, Tegan Werner got 13 (9-for-11 on free throws) and Cashton Mertens scored 11. Seth Sellen added eight.
