Issue Date: May 31, 2018

Bulldogs Bounce Gillett/Suring for First Round Win

Former M&O Conference foes Peshtigo and Gillett/Suring met in the first round of the playoffs on Wednesday, May 23, with a familiar result.

Peshtigo won the game 11-1 in five innings, with no shortage of offense from the Bulldogs. Eight Bulldogs had hits and five had multiple.

Peshtigo scored three in the first inning and six in the third, finishing things off with runs in the final two innings.

"The bats are really coming around like we figured they would, so we're happy with the hitting," Bulldogs coach Tom Christensen said. "I've seen the fire that they've been playing with the last week. We're playing our best ball at the right time."

Peshtigo pitcher Shae Tonn needed just 45 pitches to work through five innings. She allowed only two hits with no walks and four strikeouts.

"Shae's out there playing banged up, but she does what she does," Christensen said. "She battles and competes at a high level."

Grace Wickman had a big game for the Bulldogs, with a triple and a double resulting in two RBs and two runs scored.

"We do a lot of the fundamental things and never really get away from fundamental training that we do, and Grace is hitting the ball with four or five other girls," Christensen said.

Sydney Young took the loss for Gillett/Suring. She allowed 11 runs, 10 of which were earned.

Angel Griffin singled and scored in the fourth inning on a Faith Sorlie hit for the Hornets' only run.



Vikings Sink Marines Playoff Hopes

Marinette's playoff run ended in just 4 1/2 innings against Denmark on Wednesday, May 23.

The Vikings made quick work of the Marines, as Syd Nemetz allowed nine hits and two walks, totaling 10 runs, eight of which were earned.

On the other hand, Denmark's Grace Nys went five innings, allowing just two hits and striking out 11.

Hannah Ebsch and Abi Duda had the Marines' only hits.

Denmark scored two in the first inning, three in the second, one in the third and slammed the door with a four-run fourth.

In addition to dominant pitching, the Vikings clubbed three home runs.



West DePere Slips Past Underdog Oconto Falls

Even though they had just one hit and struck out 15 times, the Oconto Falls Panthers were not going to go down without a fight against West De Pere on Wednesday, May 23.

The Panthers were one inning away from stealing a game from the Phantoms, who scored both their runs in the third inning.

Oconto Falls got one back in the fourth, but it wasn't enough. The run came on a solo home run from Emma Huberty. It was the only hit of the game for the Panthers. Huberty also had one of tow Panther walks in the game.

Panther Josie Tolzman pitched a good game, allowing two runs on seven hits and no walks, while striking out nine. It wasn't enough to best WDP pitcher Genesis Eggart, however, who was dynamic.

She allowed just the one hit, striking out 15 Panthers in the game. Every Panther hitter struck out at least once in the ballgame.



Oconto Beats Amherst; Heartbreaks to Tomahawk

Oconto was defeated in ten innings against Tomahawk to end their hopes of a sectional title.

The Hatchets came away with the 4-3 win in a game that went three innings longer than planned.

Mackenzie Honish pitched all 10 innings, striking out 12 and allowing just one walk to go with seven hits.

Oconto led 2-0 after a big first inning, but Tomahawk captured the lead in the third. Oconto tied things up in the sixth, but Honish and Rachel Dallman didn't give any ground for the next three innings.

Ellen Sohrweide was 2-for-4 with an RBI.

To get there, Oconto had to win the regional title, which they did with a win over Amherst.

Honish was dominant in the circle, striking out 14 batters in her seven innings of work. She allowed just two hits and two walks, with one of the runs unearned.

The bottom four hitters in the Amherst lineup struck out a combined 10 times, as Amherst was never able to get anything going from the bottom of the order.

Sohrweide was 2-for-4 with two RBIs and a run for the Blue Devils, including a home run. Oconto racked up 13 hits and two walks, though they left eight on base.

Honish also had multiple hits, as she was one of five Blue Devils who had multi-hit games. She added an RBI and a run.

Hannah Wusterbarth had 3 hits in the ballgame, the most of any player.

Sydney Lee allowed all six runs for Amherst.



Oconto Breezes Past Nekoosa

The Oconto Blue Devils made easy work of Nekoosa in their playoff opener on Wednesday, May 23, walking 11 times on their way to 12 runs.

MacKenzie Honish clubbed two of the Blue Devils' four hits. She scored two runs, had an RBI and walked once. However, hits weren't the Blue Devils' primary method of getting runners on base.

Eight Oconto batters drew at least one walk, with Kalista Susa's three walks the highest total of any Blue Devil.

Honish struck out eight Nekoosa batters in her five innings of pitching work. She allowed five baserunners and one run to cross the plate.



Tomahawk Pitching Too Much for Bulldogs

11 Bulldog batters struck out in the game, including seven of their first nine, which allowed Tomahawk to keep them down and build a 5-0 lead after just two innings.

Madi Martin walked and scored in the sixth with the help of a passed ball to give Peshtigo their only run of the game.
