Wausaukee Holds Off STAA To Remain In Second Place

Earns Tough

46-43 Victory


Surviving a tough road trip to Marinette Thursday night, the Wausaukee Rangers (12-2, 7-1) remained a game behind M-O Conference leading Peshtigo with a thrilling 46-43 win. Coach John Ranallo’s hardwood troops held a slight edge for 3-plus quarters before rallying in the final 8 minutes to pull out the victory.

Elsewhere around the M-O hardwood courts, Crivitz slipped past Gillett 41-40 on a last second three point shot by Jake Sawinski, Niagara topped Lena 57-45 and Suring knocked off Coleman 49-32 and Lena 61-46.

League play will resume with games slated for January 30 and Feb. 4 along with a trio of make-up outings. Peshtigo (12-1, 8-0) will hit the road three times with contests at Lena Thursday, Coleman Saturday and Crivitz Tuesday.

Meanwhile the Rangers host Coleman Thursday, take the hike to arch rival Crivitz Saturday before entertaining Gillett on Feb. 4.

-Thursday’s Results-

Rangers Hold Off

Cavaliers 46-43


In a closely contested clash Thursday, the Wausaukee Rangers held onto second place in the league standings with a 46-43 road win over STAA.

Both teams had troubles locating the hoop in the first half as Wausaukee owned leads of 8-4 at the first break and 15-10 by intermission.

The second half was a different story.

With Zach Orlando tossing in a trio of three point shots, the Rangers ran off an 18-17 scoring edge to lead 33-27.

The Cavaliers rallied over the final 8 minutes and went up 39-38 before Aaron Schlies worked inside for a bucket to put Wausaukee in front for good 40-39. The Rangers relied on the free throw stripe for their final 6 points as Schlies, Beau DeLaet and Austin Guarniere fired in free throws.

Orlando finished with a game high 14 points on four treys and a two pointer, Schlies added 13 points while DeLaet and James Kramer netted 6 points each.

Against STAA we played with great energy and enthusiasm on defense but struggled all night offensively. We held Powers and Bardowski to 17 total between the two and responded to each of their runs throughout the game with a big shot or 3, Ranger coach John Ranallo said. " This was a good win on the road.

Casey Boyle was a force inside for the Cavaliers, hitting for 12 points, including a couple of key buckets in the fourth quarter to spark an 11-0 scoring run. Kiefer Powers added 10 points while Evan Beranek and Jameson Bardowski netted 7 points each.

Wausaukee made it a clean sweep with a 40-37 jayvee win.

Crivitz Survives On

Three By Sawinski


Despite turning the ball over 25 times, the Wolverines dug deep and pulled out a thrilling 41-40 win at Gillett thanks to a clutch three point shot by Jake Sawinski at the buzzer. Crivitz faced an uphill battle the whole game and at one point in the third quarter trailed by as many as 14 points.

The Wolverines closed the gap to 30-23 after three periods and then went to fullcourt pressure in the fourth, forcing turnovers which resulted in more shots. Gillett saw Jake Kasten score with 0:12 left to go up 40-38. Moving the ball the length of the court, Crivitz called timeout with 6 ticks left and had the ball under their own bucket.

After getting the ball inbounded, Gillett kicked it out giving Crivitz new life with 2.8 seconds left. Setting up a play for Colton Lange in the paint or shot by Jeremy Kralovetz didn’t work out as both players were covered. That defensive move left Sawinski open, who drilled a three pointer at the buzzer for the win.

The winning play wasn’t what we designed in the timeout, but it worked. I am happy with the win....didn’t play very well until the end. We have to take better care of the basketball. We struggled against their 1-3-1 defense and had way too many turnovers, 25 in all. Turnovers have been a problem...in the past two games we turned the ball over 49 times and 70 times in the last 3 games. That has to get better, Crivitz coach Jeff Baumann said.

Colton Lange topped Crivitz with 13 points, Blaine Bauer added 8 and Kralovetz 7.

Crivitz connected on 45% off its two point shots and 35% from behind the arc.

Bauer hit two big threes in the fourth quarter to get us going. We were without Ben Fischer for the second game as he is trying to recover from a hamstring injury suffered last week, Baumann said.

Jake Kasten topped Gillett with 17 points, 9 coming in the second half. Dan Torres added 10 and Roberts 6.

Niagara Tops

Wildcats 57-45


Zach Walker and Joey Swanson combined for 39 points as Niagara knocked off visiting Lena 57-45.

Walker enjoyed a big outing with 28 points on ten 2-pointers, a pair of threes and 2-2 free throws. After missing the Peshtigo game, Swanson bounced back to score 11 points.

The host Badgers raced to a 21-12 first quarter edge as Walker fired in 8 points and Swanson 5. Hunter Borchert, who paced Lena with 22 point, lit up the Badger defense for 8 points, including a pair of threes.

Walker tacked on 9 more points in period two as the Badgers rolled to a 34-22 halftime spread.

A high scoring third quarter saw Niagara unload a 17-7 scoring punch for a 51-29 edge with Walker accounting for 11 points, one shot being a three.

Over the final 8 minutes, Lena rallied 16-6 as Dalton Anderson drilled four treys and Borchert added one.

A great team win. Offensively we moved the ball well and got a lot of easy shots. Our pressure defense created a lot of turnovers...we really controlled the backboards, Niagara coach Jim Hoogland said.

Niagara made 26-46 shots (57%) and held a 32-14 rebounding edge with Walker hauling down 10 boards.

Lena connected on 16 of 48 field goals (33%).

Suring Rallies In 2nd

Half For 49-32 Win


After falling behind 20-19 at intermission, the host Eagles ran off a 30-12 second half surge to claim a 49-32 M-O win over Coleman.

Dillon Kempen shook off a scoring slump to toss in 7 points in period one as Suring earned a 9-3 edge. The second quarter belonged to Coleman 17-10 as Jody Styczynski an Blake Margis netted 6 points to secure a slim halftime lead.

John Horst scored 8 of his team high 18 points in the third quarter to key a 15-6 run for a 34-26 Suring lead. Over the final 8 minutes, Tyler Fisher canned three baskets and Horst a pair as Suring tacked on a 15-6 closing run.

Horst finished with a game high 18 points while Fisher and Kempen added 13 each.

Margis paced Coleman with 8 points, all in the first half, Styczynski scored 6 while Austin Malecki, Blaine Ermis and Miguel Fadoua tallied 4 points each.



-Saturday’s Results-

Fisher Fires In 31

As Suring Rolls


Tyler Fisher tossed in a season high 31 points to lead Suring to a 61-46 conference road win over Lena. The southpaw shooting Fisher fired in 12 points in the first half then unloaded a 17-point barrage in the third quarter to key a 19-7 scoring spurt.

Fisher finished with 13 baskets and went 5-8 from the free throw stripe.

John Horst added 14 points for the winners while senior guard Dillon Kempen chipped in with 12.

Nash Haney topped Lena with 20 points, Hunter Borchert netted 14 while Matt Marquardt and Dalton Anderson scored 5 points each.

With Fisher making his way to the hoop for 8 points, Kempen and Horst 6 each, the Eagles soared to a 20-11 first quarter lead. Lena stormed back in the second frame on the strength of a 17-9 run and six points each from Borchert and Haney. Marquardt and Borchert found the mark on three point shots each in the run.

Taking a 29-28 lead into halftime, Suring came out on fire in period three. Or should we say Fisher was on fire. The lanky lefty keyed a 19-7 spurt with 17 points on 8 baskets and a free throw. When the third quarter ended, Suring was in control on the scoreboard 48-35.

The Eagles used the free throw stripe to gain an edge in the fourth quarter 13-11. Suring went to the line 12 times and made 9, including a 4-4 effort by Kempen.

Lena tried to counter with 5 points from Anderson, including a trey while Haney added 4 points.



-Non League Results-

Rangers Race Past

Stephenson 58-36


Holding the scoring edge in every quarter, Wausaukee raced past host Stephenson 58-36. The Rangers owned a 28-16 halftime spread then closed out the win with a 30-20 spurt over the final two frames.

Aaron Schlies topped Wausaukee with 17 points, Zach Orlando added 14 and James Kramer 6.

Had good start which carried us through. Zach Orlando and Aaron Schlies shared the scoring load while Beau DeLaet and Eric Arndt provided spark on the defensive end, Wausaukee coach John Ranallo said.
