Wausaukee Takes Early Lead

Uses Pair Of One Run

Wins For 4-0 Readout;

Coleman (4-1) In Second


Sparked by a pair of thrilling one-run victories, the Wausaukee Rangers have taken the early lead in the 7-team M-O Conference with a 4-0 diamond mark. Coach Paul Moser’s troops rallied to turn back host Peshtigo Friday 3-2 in 8 innings then used a walk-off squeeze bunt by Zach Zeutzius to clip Crivitz Monday 4-3.

Sporting that 4-0 readout, the Rangers hold a half game lead over second place Coleman (4-1), which claimed a trio of M-O wins. Coach Kent Casper’s gang whipped Niagara 13-5 and Lena-STAA 20-3 Friday before taming the Gillett Tigers 14-1 Monday.

Peshtigo sits in third place at 2-1 and 1 1/2 games behind the Rangers. After suffering that heartbreaking home loss Friday, the Bulldogs got back on the winning track in the M-O with 15-zip and 20-0 whippings of Lena-STAA Monday.

Key games slated for Thursday have league leading Rangers hosting Gillett in a doubleheader while Coleman takes the hike to Crivitz. Conference make up games find Peshtigo hosting Niagara Friday and Wausaukee heading to Coleman Saturday for an 11am clash.

Monday’s slate has the Bulldogs traveling to Gillett for a twinbill, Coleman visiting Lena-STAA and Crivitz entertaining Niagara in a doubleheader.



-Friday’s Results-

Rangers Rally To

Top Peshtigo 3-2


Staging an unbelievable rally over the final two innings, Wausaukee moved into sole possession of first place in the M-O Conference with a thrilling 3-2 win over host Peshtigo.

“This was one of the most exciting games I’ve been involved with. It was extremely well played, no errors and both teams had chances to win. It was a great game,” Wausaukee coach Paul Moser said.

The Rangers were on the short end of a 2-0 deficit heading into the 7th inning when cleanup swinger Aaron Schlies blasted a two-run homer to right center. Wausaukee got back in the scoring column in the 8th as Russell Smith singled in Brennan Gabriel with the winning run.

“This was an exciting high school game, one of the best I have ever seen or been involved with,” Peshtigo coach Pat Robbins said. “These were two pretty good teams going at it and Wausaukee came up the key hits. We had our opportunities, but couldn’t finish the job. Sure the loss hurts, but we are not out of the conference race by any means.”

The early season showdown of league favorites was dominated by pitching. Schlies hurled 6-plus innings of 6-hit ball with 4 walks and 5 strikeouts before reliever Beau DeLaet nailed down the win with 2 frames of one-hit ball. While the Rangers relied on a pair of righthanders, Peshtigo went with hard throwing Jordan Berth the entire 8 innings. Berth was nicked for 3 runs on 3 hits, walking 5 and fanning 9.

The big bat of Marcus Sharkey accounted for both of Peshtigo’s runs as the number three hitter swatted a third inning RBI double and a fifth inning run scoring triple.

In the third frame, Brendon Thomas, who played a stellar defensive game at short, singled with one out. Up stepped Sharkey, who ripped a two-bagger to right center. Leading 1-0, the Bulldogs gained some additional breathing room in the fifth. DJ Messenger opened with a single then motored home as Sharkey lashed a triple down the rightfield line.

That 2-0 spread lasted until the 7th when Wausaukee went to work. After coming up with just one hit through six frames, the Rangers finally got to Berth. DeLaet drew a leadoff walk then waltzed home on the round tripper by Schlies. The Rangers loaded the bases and were eying more runs before Berth got Eddie Self on strikes to end the rally.

Gabriel and DeLaet collected walks to open the 8th inning only to see Schlies fly out to centerfield. It didn’t matter as Smith followed with a bloop single to right center on a 1-2 pitch scoring Gabriel with the eventual winning run.

The Bulldogs wasted a couple of other scoring chances. In the sixth inning, Berth aided his own cause with a double off the leftfield fence. Unfortunately he only made it as far as third base. Dakota Keller whiffed, Andrew Majewski flew out to center, Matt Zeske and Jacob Block walked to load the bases before Messenger popped up to the catcher.

With the score deadlocked at 2-all, Peshtigo had a chance to pull out the win in the bottom of the 7th. Thomas socked a leadoff single, which marked the end of the line for Schlies. No problem. DeLaet was called in for relief and made an immediate impact setting Sharkey down on strikes. Thomas did manage to make his way to third base following the strikeout, a pop up from Darius Dohl and a infield single by Berth. The rally ended on a fielder’s choice off the bat of Keller.

“It was nice to be able to bring Beau in as he is one of those pitchers that throws a lot of strikes. He is not as fast as Aaron, but mixes in a curveball to keep batters off balance. Aaron pitched well and threw strikes when he needed to. Plus he hit that clutch home run,” Moser added. “Berth is a good pitcher and had us under control until the 7th when we got a leadoff walk.”

“The key to the game was Wausaukee being able to make the change to DeLaet. Instead of throwing fastballs, DeLaet dropped in a couple of curves against Sharkey. That was big,” Robbins added.

Coleman Bats Come

Alive In Sweeping DH


Pounding out a total of 29 hits, Coleman had no trouble knocking off Niagara 13-5 and Lena-STAA 20-2 in conference baseball Friday.

The opener saw the Cougars unleash a 16 hit attack, paced by a 4-5 performance with 3 runs scored from Blake Margis. Dexter Karban and Nick Sailer added three hits each while Hunter Stodola added a pair of safeties and two RBIs.

The Cougars jumped out to a 5-0 cushion after two innings then sealed the win with 5 runs in the fourth and 3 more in the fifth.

Trevor Seewald, the first of 3 Coleman hurlers, started and worked 2 shutout innings giving up one hit. Alex Stodola earned the win with 3 innings of 3-hit and 5 run ball before Matt Osterberg got the call for the final two frames. The trio gave up 5 hits, walked 4 and set down 12 batters on strikes.

Hunter Kaldor collected 2 hits for Niagara while Ethan Blagec drove in a pair of runs.

Chase Champagne started and worked 4 innings for Niagara.

Marquardt topped the Cavvies with 2 hits.

Rangers Squeeze Out

4-3 Win Over Crivitz

A squeeze bunt by Zach Zeutzius in the bottom of the 7th inning sparked the Rangers to a clutch 4-3 win over visiting Crivitz.

Wausaukee controlled the game for the first 5-plus innings, building up a 3-0 cushion.

In the first inning, Beau DeLaet ripped a two-out inside the park homer for a 1-0 lead.

The Rangers tacked on two more runs in the second on a triple by Bailey Brix and RBI singles off the bats of Zach Orlando and Conner Kempinski.

Ranger starter DeLaet made that lead stand during his 5-inning mound stint, before giving way to relievers Brennan Gabriel and Brett Zeutzius.

A pair of walks got Gabriel in trouble in the sixth, leading to two earned runs. Later in the inning, Karsten Olson lashed an one out RBI single and Kershaw Stumbris added a clutch two-out, two-run double.

With the score deadlocked at 3-all, the Rangers put together their winning rally in the seventh. Russell Smith reached on an error and motored to third base on a single by Zach Orlando. Up stepped Zach Zeutzius, who put down a perfect squeeze bunt to drive in Smith with the game winning run.

Sophomore Brett Zeutzius earned the mound win with two innings of two-hit and one run pitching.

Freshman Tommy Sawinski absorbed the loss scattering 7 hits over 6 1/3 innings with 6 strikeouts and no walks.
