Peshtigo Stumbles Late, Falls to Sturgeon Bay

Down three to Sturgeon Bay with just over two minutes remaining on Tuesday, the Peshtigo Bulldogs could not convert on the offensive end of the floor and fell to the Clippers 51-42. The Bulldogs turned the ball over and missed shots down the stretch and Sturgeon Bay converted from the free throw line to seal the game.

Peshtigo played solid defense early on and converted inside against the Clippers zone leading to a 21-21 tie at the half.

The Bulldogs continue to struggle from the field shooting36% for the game, but won the rebound battle with the bigger Clippers 28-25. Peshtigo was led by Mitchell VanVooren who scored 14 points. Cam Noffke hit for 10, Nate Goneau scored 8, Max Neumann tallied 7, Reid Marquardt 2 and Darren Dionne added 1.

The Clippers were led by Mitchell Jackson who scored 14 points. Jared VanBramer hit for 9 and Carson Talbert added 8.



Southern Door Pulls Away From Peshtigo

Peshtigo's rough start to the boys basketball season continued Friday, Dec. 15, as they dropped a home matchup to Southern Door, 73-57, despite shooting 16 more times than the visiting Eagles.

The Bulldogs shot just 31 percent from the field, going 23-72, and things weren't better from free throw line and three point range. Peshtigo made 7 of 27 shots from three and went 4-13 from the charity stripe.

Bulldogs Head Coach Nate Motkowski referenced his team's shot selection through the start of the season.

"Being a younger, inexperienced team has hurt us offensively because we have been rushing our offense and this has caused our shot selection to be poor," Motkowski said. "We are settling for low-percentage shots that are out of our normal comfort zone."

Mitchell VanVooren led the Bulldogs in scoring with 22. He was the only player on the home team in double figures. VanVooren went 9-19 from the field, including 3-6 from three. He made just one of his five free throw attempts, however. He grabbed 10 rebounds, including four of the offensive variety.

The Bulldogs out-rebounded the Eagles 38-36. Motkowski praised his team's rebounding throughout the early part of the season, saying "We have been very impressed with our rebounding overall, especially offensive rebounds."

Three Bulldogs got seven points each, as Max Neumann, Reid Marquardt and Trent Carriveau all reached the total. Nathan Goneau had five, Nick Nielson had four, Cade Tackmier scored three points and Cameron Noffke scored a bucket.

Southern Door was able to get four players in double figures, including Kyle Daoust, who scored 24, while making 10 of 12 free throws. Samuel Gerend had 14, Ryan Claflin had 13 and Derik Lecaptain scored 12. The Eagles shot 40 free throws, making 27 of them to more than double the Bulldogs' shots and percentage at the line. Southern Door also shot 39 percent from the field, attempting just seven three pointers and making two.

Motkowski is confident his team will turn things around this season, saying, "I truly believe things will turn around quickly once our guys adjust to the varsity game speed, physicality and expectations."

The same goes for the players, Motkowski added. "The guys are continuing to show up every single day and work hard to make a change even though they know we haven't been living up to the Peshtigo basketball winning tradition that we are all accustomed to," he said. "The guys haven't given up by any means. They still believe in their season."



Bobcats Pounce on Patriots

The Florence Bobcats took down the Goodman-Pembine Patriots Friday evening 80-63.

"Florence came out with an aggressive game plan and we didn't adjust well and often enough," said Patriot Head Coach John Swick. "We committed 19 first half turnovers and finished with 29 total. That is a lot of empty possessions to try and make up for when you're not shooting very well. We cut the lead to 4 points late in the second half but then gave up to many easy baskets down the stretch. The guys really battled hard tonight and we just need to clean some things up a bit."

Leading scorers for the Patriots were Hagan Braaten with 29 points and 20 rebounds while Wyatt Marcy had 14 points and 12 rebounds.



Coleman Shellacks Lena

The Coleman Cougars hosted the Lena Wildcats Thursday night for an M&O Conference blowout that saw thew Cougars victorious 78-34.

Just about as one-sided as they come and much of this had to do with the performance of one of the Coleman guys. Cole Woulf went absolutely berserk as he scored an overwhelming 30 points for the evening's top scoring honor. He was eight of nine at the free throw line with 11 two pointers to boot.

Cayden Bintz backed the scorer assault with 13 points of his own while Aaron Fraser chipped in eight.

Lena was led by Levi Potter with a respectable 16 points and Chantz Rowell with eight.



Tigers Can't Stop Cougars

The Gillett Tigers couldn't find their pace Tuesday night when they took on the home court Coleman Cougars, falling to the fiery Cougar attack 71-44.

Coleman wasted no time in building a sizable lead, entering the locker room at the half ahead 38-17. Gillett showed more of a spark in the second half but still struggled to keep pace as the Cougars closed the second halves scoring ahead 33-27 for the hefty win.

Cole Woulf, who had a whale of a game last week posted up some good numbers in this one as well, leading his team with 17 points. Payton Nelson and Austin Marquardt chipped in 13 points a piece.

Gillett's Ben Frank earned top scoring honors for his Tigers with 23 points on the evening. On the way to that total he put up three long rangers and seven in close buckets. Gillett's Block got nine while Cody Long secured six.



Marinette Slips Past Waupaca

The Marinette Marines soundly defeated the visiting Waupaca Comets Friday night 67-50.

Marinette was led by Jacob Poetzl with 22 points, enough for the top scoring spot. Jordan Wendt posted 20 while Walker Stroming got eight.

Waupaca was led by Wanty with 17 points.



Maroons Fall But Look Tougher

The Menominee Maroons had a rough start to the basketball season to say the least, and Friday night was no exception as Negaunee ran up and won the court for a 72-33 win.

Menominee was led by Monroe with 17 and Barrette with five.

Negaunee's Mattson was the game's top scorer with 17 points.



Wolverines Crush Cavaliers

The Crivitz Wolverines went wild on their home court Tuesday night when they took on the St. Thomas Aquinas Cavaliers, defeating the visitors 62-46.

The Cavaliers did their best to stay tough defensively in the first half but a couple determined Wolverines, Travis Geise and Chalie Johnsen, would have none of the Cavaliers paint tricks as they locked down the lane scoring off multiple put backs.

The evening's top performer was STAA's Jack Farley who would not be denied his share of scores, top all others with 22 points. Christian Hornick put in 10 points while Tyler Stuart got nine.

Crivitz was led by Giese and Shane Bauer with 15 points each and Johnsen with 14.
