Cougar's End Regular

Season With 60-37 Win


Over Gibraltar

Coleman wrapped up the regular season with a 60-37 dismantling of Gibraltar on Saturday.

Gibraltar, which finished Packerland play 1-15, played the M&O champions tough in the first half, and Coleman led 27-22 at the break.

It was the Coleman offense that found a spark in the locker room at halftime, and the Cougars played to a 33-15 advantage in the second half, led by Aubrey Bintz.

Bintz did most of her work at the free throw line, making eight of her 12 attempts along with her 3-5 shooting day from the field. She finished with a game-high 14 points.

Cameron Zeitler was 5-7 for 11 points, and Desiree Nowak scored eight. Both Alyssa Hoida and Madelyn Hinther scored six, and Jenna Styczynski and Callee Compe got five apiece.

Nine Cougars scored in the game, while Gibraltar didn't have quite as much balance in its offensive attack. Andie Schar, Mikala Gorham, and Getsy Lecy combined for 35 of the team's 37 points and attempted all but 10 of its 54 shots.

Coleman's opening round regional matchup against Roncalli was postponed until Wednesday. Coleman is the No. 5 seed in its regional and Roncalli is No. 12. The winner faces the fourth-seeded Oconto Blue Devils on Friday.



Bulldogs Get Statement

Win Over Coleman


Peshtigo made a statement with a 68-28 win over Coleman on Thursday.

After a 51-41 loss to Gillett the week before, the second-place team in the M&O Conference, Peshtigo assistant Lance Pesch talked about the team's tough upcoming schedule to close the season and how they wanted to avoid a skid to end the season.

The Bulldogs have responded to that loss with wins over the Packerland leaders Oconto, albeit without star forward Lianna Baxter, and now over M&O winners Coleman in dominant fashion.

Peshtigo came out flying to take a 14-2 lead, with Sydney Lund scoring eight of the 14 and both Akira Smalls and Emma Gilligan hitting 3-pointers. With about six minutes to play in the first half, Gilligan knocked down her second triple to extend the lead to 28-7.

Jaci Tonn drilled a 3-pointer at the first half buzzer and Peshtigo led 31-10.

"They were on fire. Not much you can do with it," Coleman coach Todd Olsen said. "They were contested shots, defense was playing good, they were just hitting their shots and we weren't in the first half. We just got in a hole and couldn't recover."

The two teams battled early in the second half. In the first five minutes, Coleman outscored Peshtigo 9-8, but the Bulldogs would find their groove again, going on a quick 13-0 run to extend the lead to 52-19, with Allison Peters, Brooklyn Phillips, and Gilligan all nailing 3-pointers in the run.

As a team, Peshtigo hit 10 of 17 3-pointers in the game, also holding Coleman to just 8-43 shooting as a team.

"We got a lot of scoring from different people early on, and I think that forced them to go out a little bit so Sydney got open a little bit more and I thought we really had a good first half," Peshtigo coach Bruce Parkovich said. "We struggled a little bit to start the second half and then came on again. Probably our best game knowing that we scored a lot of points and we also played really good defense."

Lund finished with 29 points. She made 12 of her 20 field goal attempts and all five of her free throws. She also had seven rebounds and four assists, both at least tying team-highs.

"She's just a phenomenal player. She's going to get her points no matter what you do," Olsen said. "The shooting for Peshtigo tonight was unbelievable, it truly was. Hopefully they stay hot in the playoffs."

Gilligan was 4-8 from downtown for 12 points, Tonn had eight points on 3-5 shooting with seven rebounds, and six other Bulldogs got on the scoresheet.

"It runs in streaks with us. There's times where we can't make an outside shot and we end up trying to tell Sydney she's got to score more, but we didn't have to tonight," Parkovich said. "Their type of defense is to sag in and take that away from you. We said at halftime you can kick the ball back out and the three might be there. The first half and the second half, we seemed to take that to heart."

Coleman's Aubrey Bintz had a good game offensively, scoring 14 on 3-9 shooting and hitting seven of her 11 free throws. The loss will be a good learning opportunity for Coleman, which also took on Gibraltar on Saturday before starting playoff competition.

"We always want to schedule teams that are going to challenge us. It's only going to make us better," Olsen said. "We have playoffs next week and this is a great opportunity for us to learn from this, bounce back, be positive, and keep after it."



Badgers Hold on for

57-33 Win Over Wildcats


The first 14 minutes of Friday's matchup between Niagara and Lena weren't pretty from an offensive perspective, but once the Badgers found their offensive rhythm, they ended up with a commanding 57-33 win.

With 3:55 left in the first half, the Badgers called timeout with the score tied 9-9. They came out of that timeout and went on a 12-4 run to close the first half and led 21-13, with Mallory Sanicki scoring the final five points of that rally.

The second half was more of the same. The Badgers turned up the pressure and began to see some of their shots fall, as they pulled away to secure the big win.

Bailey Pearson hit a shot to give her team a 21-point lead with about eight minutes to play, and they never looked back.

"I told the girls at halftime, "we have set basketball back 10 years with our first 10 minutes, but we played pretty well from that point on,'" Niagara coach Karl Lamoreaux said.

Morgan Borchardt scored 14 points on 7-12 shooting, Abby Wells was 4-10 overall and 3-6 from 3-point range to score 11, Sanicki scored 13 on 4-10 shooting, and both Josie Rock (2-11 FG, 3-4 FT) and Pearson (4-5 FG) scored eight.

Pearson also had a team-high 12 rebounds on a well-rounded night of basketball. She led the team with two blocks, tied the team lead with Sanicki with three steals, and had two assists.

"Bailey doesn't look for her own shot. She'll finish shots that other people create for her, but she doesn't want to create her own," Lamoreaux said. "She played for me a little bit as a freshman, so I'm pretty used to what she does. She's a shy, hardworking girl."

Lamoreaux had nothing but good things to say about his team's offensive performances after a slow start.

"I thought that Morgan had a beautiful game tonight, and she's a real spark plug, there's no doubt about it, Abby Wells on defense is phenomenal, and Josie is Josie," he said, adding about Wells, "She's a really good defender, and the last five or six games, she's probably averaging 12 points a game. She's coming alive."

Lena's Eva Brooks was 6-12 shooting and scored 13 points. Whitney Potter had six.

Niagara earned the No. 3 seed in its Division 5 regional. Lena is the No. 6 seed, so if the Wildcats beat No. 11 Goodman/Pembine on Wednesday, they'll take on Niagara again Friday night.

"I thought they played a very good first half and we just kind of fell asleep the second half," Lena coach Tim Goldschmidt said. "You've got to give Niagara credit. They did the things they needed to do and made the shots they needed to make, and they came out on top. We'll get another shot at them hopefully next Friday and see what happens."



Panthers Take Hard

Fought Loss to Spartans


First half offensive struggles doomed Oconto Falls in a 41-35 loss to Luxemburg-Casco on Thursday.

The Panthers, already locked into fourth play in the North Eastern Conference, came out sluggish on the offensive end and finished the opening 18 minutes with eight points.

The Panthers trailed 20-8, and after they put in 27 second half points, they lost by just six points.

Alexis Euclide and Hailey Peitersen scored 13 and 11 in the game to lead Oconto Falls.

Taylor Thiry and Lauren Adams scored 18 and 17, respectively, to pace the Spartans.

The Panthers finished North Eastern Conference play at 11-7. Lux-Casco was 10-8 and finished fifth.



Healthy Oconto Line Up

Takes Win Over Sevastopol


Lianna Baxter's return to action and a couple of good performances from Addisyn Viestenz and Leah Allan spurred Oconto to a 58-43 win over Sevastopol on Thursday.

Baxter had missed the last two games, both double-digit Oconto losses to Bonduel and Peshtigo, but she returned to action in the Blue Devils' regular season finale on Thursday and produced a stat sheet on par with her contributions from the early part of the season.

She finished with 20 points, making five of 16 field goals and 8 of 10 free throws, with seven assists, an assist, two steals, and three blocks as well.

Viestenz scored 15 points on 6-13 shooting, with 10 rebounds, three assists, and a steal. Allan was 4-6 from the field and finished with 12 points, adding four rebounds as well.

Hannah Moe scored six points with six rebounds. Oconto outrebounded Sevastopol 36-22.

Naomi Rikkola's 14 led Sevastopol.

The Blue Devils (22-2 overall) received the No. 4 seed in their Division 4 regional. They await the winner of No. 5 Coleman and No. 12 Roncalli.

Coleman and Oconto were scheduled to meet on Nov. 18 for their season opener, but the game was cancelled. Coleman went on to go 18-5 for the season, including an undefeated 14-0 M&O Conference season.



Gillett Overcomes Tough Suring

Attack for 52-45 Victory


Gillett picked up a 52-45 win over Suring on Friday night despite a nearly perfect offensive night from the Eagles' Christine Sleeter.

Sleeter scored 28 points on 14-17 shooting, also posting a game-high 12 rebounds and seven steals.

Gillett got 17 points on 7-13 shooting from Alaina Herzog, who also had six rebounds. Macy Franti had 14 points, Carleigh Kaczmarek scored 11, and Naomi Anker scored eight.

Kate Mahoney scored eight for the Eagles. Macie Reed had five rebounds and seven of Suring's 12 assists in the game.

No. 4 Gillett faces White Lake on Wednesday. The winner faces either No. 5 Florence or No. 12 Gibraltar on Friday.

White Lake is 0-21 overall on the year.

Suring, seeded seventh, faces No. 10 Bowler on Wednesday. The winner faces No. 2 Three Lakes on Friday.

Bowler went 5-15 overall and 5-7 in Central Wisconsin North play.



Marines End Regular Season

With Win Over Denmark


Marinette wrapped up regular season action with a 55-42 win over Denmark on Thursday.

Marinette led 30-21 at halftime, then held Denmark to another 21 points in the second half.

Lindsey Wingender scored 16 points on 5-10 shooting, securing 10 rebounds, three assists, and two blocks as well.

Hannah Chenier scored 12 points on 5-12 shooting with four rebounds and two steals. Chloe Seymour scored nine with five rebounds and three steals.

Bryanna Torkko had a well-rounded game, scoring seven points with eight rebounds, four assists, and eight steals. Her rebounding, assist, and steal totals were all team-highs.

Denmark's Oliva Lamack scored 10 points. Denmark turned the ball over 29 times as a team, which led to them getting off just 35 shots from the field to Marinette's 50.

No. 10 Marinette's Division 2 playoff matchup with No. 7 Seymour (10-13 overall, 5-7 Bay Conference) was postponed from Tuesday to Wednesday.

If the Marines can pull the upset on Wednesday, they'll face No. 2 West De Pere on Friday.



Wolverines Snap 5-Game Losing

Streak With Win Over Wausaukee


Crivitz beat Wausaukee 53-37 Friday to snap a five-game losing streak right before playoff competition begins.

McKenna Sellen scored 12 points to lead the Wolverines. Lucy Gruszynski scored nine, and both Cilena and Nilea Guns got seven. Kylie Chilcote had 12 rebounds for Crivitz.

Crivitz took 74 shots in the game, with 50 rebounds helping them get more shots up.

Wausaukee's Rachel Schlies scored 12 points. Sparrow Luccarini scored eight points and Melody Schaal had seven.

Crivitz is the No. 11 seed in its Division 4 regional. The Wolverines take on Crandon on Wednesday. The winner faces Bonduel on Friday.

Crandon went 7-2 in Northern Lakes play and 15-8 overall. When the two teams faced off on Jan. 25, it was Crandon that picked up a 65-28 win.

Wausaukee, the ninth seed in its Division 5 bracket, faces No. 8 Oneida Nation (5-9 M&O Conference) in the first round of playoffs on Wednesday. The winner faces No. 1 Wabeno/Laona on Friday.

Oneida Nation won by double digits the two times the Thunderhawks and Rangers faced off this season.
