Bulldogs Pound Papermakers in Regional Opener

Issue Date: May 26, 2022

Top-seeded Peshtigo made quick work of Nekoosa in the Bulldogs' first playoff game on Tuesday.

No. 8 Nekoosa was coming off a 7-3 win over ninth-seeded Gillett/Suring on Thursday, but the Bulldogs were a different breed. The game ended in four, with Peshtigo leading 15-0.

Two errors put Allison Peters and Emma Gilligan on to start the first, and Bethany Ahrens clubbed a double to score them both. Back-to-back singles from Akira Smalls and Sydney Lund also scored runs to make it 4-0, Tori Jandt singled in Lund, and Rylie Ellie singled home Jandt. The Bulldogs led 6-0 after one.

In the second, Lund tripled home Ahrens and Smalls, who had each singled, and it was 8-0 after two.

Peshtigo was on top from the start and didn't let their energy level drop as the game went on.

"Their energy was outstanding," Peshtigo coach Matt LaCoursiere said. "At times, we've struggled with that and we come out flat, or we get a lead and we sit on it. Tonight we didn't let that happen. The girls did their job and took care of business."

After one run in the third, Peshtigo ended the contest early with six runs in the fourth. Ellie had a two-RBI single in the inning and Ahrens wrapped up a 4-4 day with an RBI double.

Ahrens struck out the side in order to wrap things up in four. She went four innings, allowing just one hit and one hit batter, striking out nine. At the dish, she was 4-4 with four RBIs, two doubles, and three runs scored.

Smalls was 2-3 with two runs and an RBI, Lund went 3-3 with a triple and three RBIs, Jandt was 2-3 with two RBIs, and Ellie was 2-3 with three RBIs. Peters and Gilligan scored twice each.

"I think the girls were just aggressive," LaCoursiere said. "The girl was putting the ball over the plate and the girls had the right mindset. They got aggressive early and we started hitting the ball like we know we can."

The Bulldogs will look to keep that momentum going against No. 5 Tomahawk on Thursday. That game will be played in Peshtigo.



Blue Devils Drop

Match to Algoma


Oconto fought hard but couldn't overcome an eight-run second inning by Algoma on Thursday.

The Packerland's top team went ahead 2-0 in the top of the second, but Algoma scored eight in the bottom of the second to take a six-run lead.

Oconto got one back in the third, then scored three in the fifth, including two runs on a McKenna Seidl home run, following one by Algoma in the bottom of the fourth. Algoma scored to make it 10-6 after five, but Oconto wasn't quite done. Addisyn Viestenz tripled in the sixth and scored on a passed ball, then Maggie Sohrweide doubled in Alyse Viestenz, who had walked.

In the top of the seventh, the Blue Devils' last chance, Lauren McDowell singled with one out, but was thrown attempting to advance to third after an error in the following at-bat.

That error put Hannah Thomson on base, and she scored after another error, this one by the left fielder, which put Savannah Brill on second. Brill was caught stealing third, however, and the Blue Devils came up just short of the big comeback.

Sohrweide was 2-4 with a double, a triple, an RBI and a run scored. Seidl went 2-4 with the home run, two RBIs, and two runs, McDowell was 2-4 with a run scored, and Brill was 1-4 with two RBIs. Addisyn and Alyse Viestenz each had one hit and one run scored.

Annika Schleuter took the loss, allowing 10 runs (six earned) on 10 hits and five walks. She struck out two.



Marines Drop Playoff

Matchup to Thunder


Marinette's season ended with a 6-1 home playoff loss to Seymour on Monday night.

The Marines came into the game seeded fourth, but fifth-seeded Seymour got the better of them and earned a date with No. 1 seed Freedom on Thursday.

Seymour's leadoff hitter Samantha Nieland singled to start the first inning and came around to score two hitters later. The team never looked back.

A hit batter and a triple in the third made it 2-0 and the Thunder made it 3-0 in the third.

Marinette fell behind 6-0 after three runs in the seventh. The Marines scored one run in the seventh when Wynn Erdman singled and scored on a Kaya Bodam RBI single.

Erdman, a sophomore, went 2-3 at the plate and started at pitcher for Marinette. Bodam was 1-3 with an RBI and a walk.

The Marines lose three seniors after this season: Kylie Sauve, Allison Kacalo, and Shayla Diaz.

"Thank you seniors," Marinette coach Scott MacIntyre said. "The coaching staff looks forward to the future."



Crivitz Posts Regional

Win Over Gibraltar/

Washington Island


Crivitz made easy work of Gibraltar/Washington Island in the first round of regionals on Thursday, winning 21-0 while Nilea Guns tossed a no-hitter.

The Wolverines came in as the eighth seed in their Division 4 bracket, lined up with No. 8 Gibraltar/Washington Island.

Crivitz pounced early, scoring seven runs in the first inning and 14 in the second. The game ended after two and a half frames.

Guns walked one batter and hit one batter and the Wolverines committed one error, but those three would be the only hitters to reach, as Guns was otherwise spotless.

At the plate, she also went 2-2 with a triple, a double, three runs scored, and two RBIs. Lexi Franzmeier was 2-2 with three runs scored and five RBIs, Hailee Gyger was 2-3 with a triple, a double, one run and three RBIs, and Cilena Guns went 2-3 with three runs and an RBI.

Maddy Welty scored twice and had one RBI, and Isabelle Danielczek was 1-2 with two runs and two RBIs. Tayah Werner and Gracie Bosanac scored three runs apiece.

The win earned Crivitz a date with top-seeded Bonduel on Tuesday.



Wolverines Hang

Tough in Loss

to Bonduel


Crivitz came into Tuesday's regional matchup with Bonduel riding high after demolishing No. 9 Gibraltar/Washington Island in the opening round. The Wolverines played top-seeded Bonduel tough, but ultimately came up short, 3-0.

The two teams were scoreless through three innings. The Bears took a 1-0 lead, then tripled it with two more runs in the fifth.

Bonduel finished the game with six hits and two walks.

Five Crivitz errors contributed to the Bonduel offense, as none of the three runs allowed by Nilea Guns were earned. She struck out three in her six innings of work.

Crivitz had four hits. They couldn't quite figure out Claire Gehm, who threw all seven innings. She only struck out two, but her defense backed her up, making just one error for the game.

Lexi Franzmeier, Hailee Gyger, Maddy Welty, and Raegan Nelsen each had hits.

The good news for Crivitz is that they don't lose any of the 14 players from this year's roster to graduation.

Bonduel moves on to face No. 5 Crandon. The Cardinals beat Manawa 4-1 on Tuesday.



Coleman Gets Upset by

Algoma in Playoff Loss


Coleman's softball season came to a disappointing end with an upset loss to No. 7 Algoma on Tuesday.

The Cougars came into the game as the No. 2 seed in their Division 4 bracket, but Algoma scored the runs necessary to get a 10-4 win and move on in the bracket.

The Wolves scored two in the first inning, then added three in the fourth to take a 5-1 lead. Coleman got three back over the next two frames to pull within a run, but Algoma scored five in the final two innings.

For Coleman, Annabell Markiewicz was 2-3 with two runs scored, Paige Fischer went 2-3 with a double and three RBIs, and Christina Ermis was 2-3 with an RBI.

Coleman committed eight errors in the game. Courtney Den Ruyter allowed five runs (three earned) in four innings, and Chloe Dufeck allowed five unearned runs on seven hits in three innings.

Senior Aubree Kreischer's season ended after knee surgery earlier in the year. Dufeck is a senior, as are outfielders Chloe Halford and Ermis.

Despite the loss, Coleman ended the season with a solid 13-5 overall record and an M&O Conference championship.
