Maroons Hand Bulldogs Loss in Close 4th Quarter

Issue Date: January 26, 2022

Area Boys Basketball

Menominee's defense caused Peshtigo some problems in the fourth quarter of a 50-40 win on Thursday.

The first three-quarters of the game could not have been any closer. After one quarter, Menominee led 11-10.

The Maroons led 18-14 on a pair of buckets by Brady Schultz in the second quarter, but the two teams went back and forth for the rest of the quarter, with four lead changes. At halftime, the lead was 25-24 Menominee.

Peshtigo took a 31-27 lead on a Landon Lemke basket in the third, but Menominee quickly tied the game at 31. There were four more lead changes and one tie in the third quarter. Peshtigo's Mauz Salem beat the buzzer to give the Bulldogs a 35-34 advantage at the end of three quarters.

Peshtigo turned the ball over too often at the beginning of the fourth quarter, with coach Jason Boucher estimating that they turned the ball over on seven of their first eight possessions of the period.

"You can't win basketball games like that. You don't even give yourselves a chance to score, you can't score," Boucher said. "We've got a lot to work on in practice taking care of the basketball."

Menominee took a 42-37 lead. Lemke hit a 3-pointer shortly after to cut the lead to 42-40 with about three minutes to play.

Those would be the last points Peshtigo scored, however, and the next minute saw Menominee stretch the lead to seven, eventually pulling away for a double-digit win.

"I thought that defensively if we hold a team to 40 points, I think we're going to have a tough time losing any game, and I told our kids that before, "If you can keep them below 50, I think we give ourselves a good chance,' and they went out and kept them below 40, so I'm just proud of the discipline we had on defense tonight. In previous games, we've always played hard defensively, but not always as disciplined, and I thought tonight we were very disciplined defensively," Menominee coach Sam Larson said. "I thought our weak side help from the bigs was great tonight, I thought we did a pretty good job of keeping Lemke out of the lane for most of the game, and then I thought offensively we started to run a little bit in the second half, get some breakaways and stretch that lead out a little bit."

Menominee ended up with 14 steals and 13 points off turnovers. The Bulldogs turned the ball over 21 times.

Menominee was 16-47 from the field (34%), also making 14 of 23 free throws. Peshtigo was 15-48 (31%), making five of nine free throws.

Cooper Conway led Menominee with 15 points on 6-12 shooting. Aidan Bellisle was 5-15 for 14 points, and Schultz scored 11 on 4-8 shooting.

For Peshtigo, Lemke was the only double-figure scorer, making five of 11 shots for 13 points. Salem scored eight and Christian Boyle had seven.

Peshtigo's size didn't give the Bulldogs as big of an advantage as it has in other games. Menominee grabbed 24 rebounds to the Bulldogs' 30.

"I thought we did a pretty good job for most parts of the game. We were up one point going into the fourth quarter, and they wore us down," Boucher said. "Give Menominee credit. They pressure you on defense, they bump you, they bang you, and they do a good job of wearing you down. The biggest thing tonight is we didn't take care of the basketball ?? way too many turnovers. Give credit to my kids, they play hard every game. Tonight, Menominee is the better team, but we're alright. This is a non-conference loss. I'd play Menominee every night of the week. It's a good test for us to get us ready for the playoffs coming up in the next month and a half."



Explosive 1st Half

Propels Coleman

to Win Over Lena


Coleman defeated Lena 67-29 on Friday, with nine different scorers getting in on the action.

Joe Olsen was the Cougars' leading scorer with 16, followed by 14 from Noah Nosgovitz.

Eli Zablocki and Evan Hockers scored eight apiece, and Tieg Sadowski scored seven. Mitch VandeWalle, Trent Mongin, and Liam Zeitler each added four.

Lena's leading scorer was Logan Shallow, who scored nine points. Max Beyer and Bryce Kittredge had six apiece



Improved STAA

Takes Loss to Suring


The last time Suring and Saint Thomas Aquinas Academy faced off, Suring came away with a 74-35 win. On Tuesday, the margin was much tighter, with Suring winning 47-32.

The teams' first meeting was on Jan. 8, with Ethan Lally and Taron Haak scoring 20 and 19 to lead the way. Haak did not play on Tuesday.

The game was close, with STAA holding an 11-9 advantage early. Suring's first lead came on a 3-pointer by Jeremy Hensel, and they would lead for the remainder of the game. By halftime, Suring led 23-14.

Cavaliers coach Jack Farley said he was happy with how his team turned defense into offense and attacked the Eagles' 1-3-1 zone.

"We always preach turning defense into offense, and that really came into play tonight. This was one of our best performances on the defensive end of the ball all year for sure," Farley said. "We got them out of their 1-3-1 in both halves, which I'm proud of my boys for that, because Suring's been running this zone for how long and we prepared hard for it, watching film before the game here, we were getting ready for it, so they did a good job on that."

Lally led Suring with 15 points and Maxwell Yancy added 14. Hensel and Gavin Fredenburgh came away with seven apiece.

STAA's Ethan Braley scored a game-high 17 points, including 10 in the second half. Henry Piasecki scored seven.

"I know Suring was missing some of their top players tonight, but I thought our guys showed a lot of heart," Farley said. "They played a lot better defense tonight for sure. I think last time they gave up close to 75, and this time it was 47. We just couldn't get the easy shots to fall tonight."

It's about progress for the Cavaliers. They're 3-14 overall with one win in M&O Conference play.

"I see something new from them every time we play, and they're definitely growing. That's the most you can ask for from a group that's mostly freshmen and sophomores," Farley said. "Just the overall effort they've been giving, they've been taking in so much, and everyone knows it's a big jump from JV to varsity, but a lot of these guys are jumping from middle school to varsity without anything in between, and they're really impressing me so far."

Suring has won two straight in M&O play. The Eagles have four M&O wins and a 4-11 overall record.



Crivitz Wins

Over STAA


Crivitz blew out Saint Thomas Aquinas Academy 88-11 on Friday.

By halftime, Crivitz led 45-6, which continued into the second half, where the Wolverines scored 43.

Nine different Wolverines scored in the game, with Sean Christiansen's 20 leading all scorers. Brady Tadisch got 13, Tegan Werner scored 12, and Seth Sellen finished with 11. Cashton Mertens and Sam Lieuwen scored nine and eight, respectively. Jackson Flowers got six.

Teagan Anderson and Calvin Peters scored seven and four, respectively, to make up STAA's 11 points.



Suring Slips By

Wausaukee 47-44


Suring narrowly edged Wausaukee on Friday, 47-44, despite the scoring efforts of Ranger Layne Rowley.

Rowley scored half of his team's points, putting up 22 for the ballgame. Conner Schroeder and Griffin Russ scored nine and seven in the losing effort, respectively.

Wausaukee came within a bucket of ending its four-game losing streak. The win ended Suring's losing streak at three games.



Peshtigo Back on

Track With Solid

Win Over Sevastopol


Peshtigo bounced back from a loss to Menominee with a 75-33 win over Sevastopol on Tuesday.

The Bulldogs shot over 50% from the field as a team, making 28 of their 55 shot attempts.

Oconto Falls Slips

Oneida Nation Takes 8

Point Win Over Niagara


It was a very different game than last time the two teams played, but Niagara still fell short against Oneida Nation on Friday, 51-43.

The last time the two teams faced off, it was Niagara's first conference game and second game overall. The Thunderhawks traveled to Niagara and came away with a 75-47 win. On Friday, the game was much closer.

Oneida Nation led 32-25 at halftime, and the two teams played one another close in the second half.

Niagara got 11 points each from Ed Swanson and Aiden Colenso, while Tommy Martin scored five.

Oneida Nation's Ethan Danforth scored 13 on 4-12 shooting, also making five of his seven free throws. Chaske Jacobs (3-9 FG, 6-6 FT) scored 12 and Evander Danforth scored 11 (1-7 FG, 9-10 FT).

The last time the teams met, Jacobs scored 27 on 9-21 shooting and made six of 12 3-pointers.

As a team, Oneida Nation punished Niagara at the free-throw line, making 23 of 26 attempts.



Waupaca Rains Threes

in Win Over Marinette


A 3-point shooting barrage gave Waupaca a big advantage over Marinette on Friday night.

Waupaca hit 15 of its 25 3-point attempts in a 73-52 win over the Marines. Evan Bogard was 5-7 from downtown, Bryce Boldt went 4-5, and Alex Pankratz hit four of seven from deep.

Boldt scored a game-high 22 points in 32 minutes of action.

Marinette was 8-30 from 3-point range, with Jake Sommerfeldt making three of his 10 attempts from range. He finished with 14 points, tying Keegan Polomis for the team-high. Polomis was 6-10 overall and 2-4 from three.

Strong Defensive

Showing Gives

Gillett the Win

over Crandon


Gillett's defense battened down the hatches in the second half of a 51-45 win over Crandon on Saturday.

At halftime, the two teams were tied at 28, but it was Gillett's defense that made the difference in the second half, as the Tigers held the Cardinals to just 17 points to pick up a six-point win.

Gillett shot 15-37 from the field and made 14 of 20 free throws, with Ben Matczak at the forefront of the offensive attack.

Matczak made five of his seven shots from the field, all 3-pointers, and both of his free throws. He finished with a game-high 17 points.
