Lena Survives Gillett in Close 2-Point Contest

Issue Date: February 3, 2022

Area Girls Basketball

The Lena Wildcats narrowly escaped a late 3-point barrage from Gillett on Thursday night to pick up a 43-41 victory.

Lena led 39-28 late. Cheyenne Krueger hit a 3-pointer to cut the lead to 39-31 with just over four minutes remaining, which would be the start of the Tigers' run.

With less than three remaining, Carleigh Kaczmarek cut the lead to six, forcing a Wildcat timeout. Coming out of the break, Lena cut the lead to four with a Macy Franti bucket.

After one Lena basket, Kaczmarek came up big again, hitting a 3-pointer to cut the lead to 43-41 with 1:05 to play.

After several fouls to get into the bonus with just a couple of seconds left, Lena's Breanna Koslowsky missed the front end of a one-and-one. The Tigers rebounded and found Kaczmarek on the outlet, but her last-second heave didn't find nylon.

Kaczmarek finished with 15 points in the game, including three 3-pointers. As a team, the Tigers made six 3-pointers in the game. Franti made one and finished with 11 points.

"That was my biggest fear," Lena coach Tim Goldschmidt said. "We knew we had to stop their flex cuts to get easy baskets, but what that did was open up 3s, and they've got two very good 3-point shooters. We had to make some adjustments, and luckily Ms. Kaczmarek missed a shot at the buzzer that gave us a victory."

Lena got big games from Eva Brooks and Natalie McNurlen.

Brooks' numbers pop off the chart, as she finished with 18 points on 7-12 shooting to go with 15 rebounds, five assists, three steals, and three blocks. All were at least tied for the team lead.

"What can I say about Eva Brooks? Only a freshman, six-footer, she's got a special talent. It gets us a lot of rebounds," Goldschmidt said. "The main thing she does defensively, is you watch a game, and a lot of girls will catch the ball in the lane and the first thing they're looking for, "is she around somewhere?' And it throws their shot off, so it's a great asset to have a girl that size in the inside that can block, play on the perimeter, and handle the basketball. She's a good-looking ballplayer."

McNurlen scored 14 points on 6-12 shooting with seven rebounds, three assists, three steals, and a block.

The loss was Gillett's fourth in the last five after a six-game win streak between Dec. 30 and Jan. 13.

The Wildcats, on the other hand, will be hoping this starts them on a run to end the year. It's their second win in seven.

"Gillett's a good, scrappy team," Goldschmidt said. "They're patient, they run their offense through, and they get good looks. It's a big win for us. I'm happy."



Coleman Takes Blowout

Win Over Wausaukee


Coleman beat Wausaukee 54-12 on Thursday night.

The Cougars made 22 of their 54 shot attempts and were led in scoring by Aubrey Bintz, who made five of her nine attempts and finished with 11 points. She also led the team in assists with five.

Desiree Nowak scored 10 (4-7 FG, 2-5 FT), Kiersten Jensen scored nine (4-13 FG), Cameron Zeitler scored nine (4-7 FG, 1-1 FT), and Madyln Hinther was 3-5 for eight points.

Alyssa Hoida scored six and led the Cougars in rebounding with six.

Rachel Schlies scored seven of Wausaukee's 12 points.



Thayer's 25 Gives Oneida Nation Win Over Crivitz

G'Oni Thayer returned to the starting lineup and dropped 25 points to lead the Oneida Nation Thunderhawks over Crivitz 58-54 on Thursday.

Thayer missed Monday's 62-35 loss to Coleman, but she wasn't lacking for confidence after the game missed. She came out firing, attempting 27 shots, 18 of them 3-pointers, in the win. She made six of her attempts from downtown.

Jaylyn Caldwell scored 16 points for the Thunderhawks as well, making three of 11 shots from the field and nine of 12 free throws. She led all players with 13 rebounds.

The Wolverines' Cilena Guns was 9-19 shooting for 18 points, also recording nine rebounds. Kate Richlen scored nine with a team-high 11 rebounds, and Tayah Werner scored eight with a team-high five steals.



Rebels Bounce Bobcats 46-38

Florence came up short against Laona/Wabeno on Thursday, 46-38.

Isabella Millan led the Florence scoring attack, scoring 20 points on 8-22 shooting. She also led the team with 16 rebounds and five blocks. Victoria Peterson had 13 rebounds as well.

Leah Young scored eight points.

L/W led 27-20 at halftime.



Big First Half Propels

Marinette Over Waupaca


Marinette dominated Waupaca in the opening 18 minutes of Thursday's 51-31 win over Waupaca.

The Marines smothered Waupaca in the first half, building a 35-9 lead by the midway buzzer. In the second half, Waupaca was much improved, but not enough to cut too far into that 26-point lead.

Riley Kieffer scored 21 points to pace the Marines and lead all scorers. She made eight of her 12 field goals, including three shots from 3-point range. She made two free throws as well.

Free throws were an area of some concern for Marinette early in the year, but on Thursday, they made a respectable 11 of 19 (58%).

Hannah Chenier scored 15 points (5-11 FG, 4-7 FT, 1-1 3PT), and led the team with nine rebounds, eight steals, and three blocks. Chloe Seymour's four assists were a team-high.

Macie Studzinski scored 17 points for Waupaca.



Wildcats Defense Too

Much for White Lake


Lena held White Lake to 12 points in a big win on Monday.

The Wildcats finished with 66 points in about as balanced a scorebook as you'll see. No player scored more than eight, and 13 different Wildcats made their way into the book, all scoring three or more.

Natalie McNurlen and Chaela Rabas each scored eight points, while Aspen Magee, Kali Fischer, and Macy Herald each scored six.

Five different players scored four points and two had three.

Mallory Sanicki and Morgan Borchardt tied for the team lead in rebounds with seven. They also scored eight and seven points, respectively.

Erin Lukowicz scored six points.



Oconto Defeats Algoma

by Six Point Margin


Addisyn Viestenz and Lianna Baxter combined for 36 of Oconto's 49 points in a six-point win over Algoma on Friday.

Viestenz was 8-19 shooting and finished with 20 points, while Baxter was 7-12 for 16 points.

Baxter led the team with nine rebounds, three assists, five steals, and two blocks as well.

Kyanne Wusterbarth scored six points with six rebounds.

If there was one place Oconto struggled, it was at the free throw line, where the Blue Devils made just seven of 20 attempts.

The win pushed Oconto to 18-0 on the season. It is just the third time in 18 games that they have won by less than 10 points.



Carney-Nadeau Defeats Niagara

The Niagara Lady Badgers were beaten 59-35 by Carney-Nadeau on Wednesday night.

Niagara actually had the upper hand through the first quarter, with a 14-13 lead courtesy of five points each by Mallory Sanicki and Josie Rock. At halftime, the two teams were tied at 24, with Rock adding six point points to her tally with two 3-pointers.

The second half saw Carney-Nadeau take an 11-point lead, however, as Niagara was outscored 18-7. In the final quarter, the Carney-Nadeau defense strengthened its grip even more by allowing just four points.

Rock and Sanicki both finished with 13 points and Morgan Borchardt scored seven.Tessa Wagner led C-N with 24 points, with all of it coming after the first quarter.



Defensive Battle Sees Denmark Defeat Oconto Falls

Oconto Falls battled Denmark and came away with a 36-30 win on Thursday.

Peshtigo Cruises to Win Over Sturgeon Bay

Peshtigo took down Sturgeon Bay 61-35 on Friday.

The Bulldogs never really let the Clippers into the game, as they built up a 30-11 lead by halftime and kept things going in the second half.

Emma Gilligan attempted 13 3-pointers in the game and sank five to finish with 15 points, and Akira Smalls had six points to go with seven rebounds.

Crivitz Uses Free Throws to Outlast Wausaukee
