Peshtigo Pulls Away From Sturgeon Bay in Second Half

After a night on Friday where they shot 30 percent as a team and went 2-for-19 from the three-point line, the Peshtigo Bulldogs responded with an efficient night on the hardwood on Tuesday.

The Bulldogs beat the Sturgeon Bay Clippers 62-44 while shooting 55 percent from the field and going 5-for-10 from downtown.

The Clippers, like quite a few recent teams, played zone against the Bulldogs, who have struggled from downtown.

"We've worked on it quite a bit," Peshtigo coach Nate Motkowski said of the team's zone offense. "We were in a funk shooting from the outside and teams were aware of it, so they were playing zone, and I don't blame them, but I thought we came out tonight and executed the zone offense we wanted to. We hit some outside shots, and even the outside shots that didn't fall, they were good looks, so I was really happy with our zone offense overall."

Peshtigo led 36-29 at the half, though Motkowski felt it could have bit a few more. They came out firing in the early part of the second half, which he said didn't put the game away, but put the team in a good position to win.

Mitchell VanVooren, who Motkowski called "consistent," scored 18 points on 8-of-13 shooting, but the biggest performance might have been from Cade Tackmier.

He came out firing. After a tough night from the field on Friday, Tuesday was a polar opposite for Tackmier. He finished 7-for-8 from the field with four made threes on four attempts. He grabbed eight rebounds and provided four assists.

"I thought Cade stepped up and had a huge game," Motkowski said. "Not only did he guard their best shooter, but he also rebounded well, hit a few threes and got some great looks inside for us to help some guys with some easy points."

Cam Noffke went 4-for-5 from the field for 10 points and Reid Marquardt was 4-for-8 with nine points.

Carson Talbert led the Clipperes with a 21-point night, but he was the only player over 10 for Sturgeon Bay

Suring Far Too

Much For STAA

The Suring Eagles could pretty much call last Thursday's game with St. Thomas Aquinas a quick practice as they took the entire show 84-7.

Suring was not to be trifled with in this one as they held an enormous 41-3 lead.

The Eagles were led by the efforts of Mitch Stegeman and Dequez Sepulveda who both posted 18 points each. Caleb Lally and Jayden Geniesse both chipped in 12 points a piece while Reece Garrigan tacked on eight.

STAA was led by Alex Powers with six points and Griffen Knox with one point.



Wausaukee Battles for Hard Fought Win Over Gillett

The Wausaukee Ranger boys had a battle last Thursday night when they took on the Gillett Tigers who fell to the Rangers 69-59.

Though the game went to Wausaukee it was not always in the Rangers hands. During the first half Gillett was the better team as they lead going into the locker room 35-30.

But a tough Ranger squad under the leadership of head coach Dave Linbeck would not be denied the victory.

With Brandon Shigouri and Tristan Pollard going off over the final half the Rangers were able to outscore the Tiger in the closing frame 39-29 for the 69-59 final verdict.

Gillett was led by Frammes with 20 points while Athony Carroll and Bluck both posted 16 points each.

The Rangers saw Brandon Shigouri take top scoring honors with 23 points. Pollard ended the evening with 14 points while Kyle Struve tacked on 13 points.



Coleman Pounds Lena

The Coleman Cougars got all they needed and more to defeat the hosting Lena Wildcats Thursday night 78-39.

Coleman never looked over their shoulder in this one. After one half of play the Cougars had the lead firmly in their grasp 47-19.

An additional 31 points by the Cougars in the second half would help to push the Coleman guys to that big differential.

Coleman's Payton Nelson led the way for all players during the game with 20 points. Coleman's Simon Maedke posted 14 while Nick Teteak got 10 points.

Colby Borchert added on 14 points to Lena's final total while teammate Logan Shallow got six points.



Coleman Bags Big Win Over Tough Gillett

The Coleman Cougars faced off with the scrappy Gilett Tigers, who have lost a few games by narrow margins, and took down the visiting Tigers 68-40.

It was Nick teeth's night as he led the way for the Cougars with 20 points, which also earned the nights top scoring spot. Teammate Payton Nelson added on 10 points while Cayden Bintz got nine on the night.

Gillett was led by Jack Baer with 12 points and Logan Block got 10 points.



Lena Gets a Much Needed Win Over Goodman-Pembine

The Lena Wildcats who have struggled to get the gears churning this season got a nice "W" to add to their readout thanks to a 57-46 draft of the visiting Patriots.

Lena was led by Colby Borchert with 20 points, which was good enough for the nights top scoring honors. Trenton Telford posted 10 points while Max Bayer got six.

The Patriots were led by Stan Maruszczak with 12 points.



Oneida Nation Buries Badgers

The Oneida Nation Thunderhawkls could not be slowed in their contest with the Niagara Badgers Tuesday night as they shutdown the Badgers 83-35.

Leading all scorers was Oneida's Javon Webster with 23 points on the night. David Danforth chipped in 17 points while Richard Summers got 13 during the match up.

Niagara was led by Charles Swanson with 13 points and Josh Weber with eight.



Goodman-Pembine Can't Overcome Early Deficit, Falls to Phelps

Goodman-Pembine got its scoring going in the second half, but the Patriots couldn't overcome a first half that came up short against Phelps on Thursday.

Phelps got 36 points in the first half to G-P's 23. The Patriots scored 33 in the second half, but it wasn't enough, as they fell 66-56.

Boone Larison scored 21 to lead the team, making three triples. Landon Kalkofen had 11, nine in the second half.

Phelps' Chase Robbins had 17 points to lead the victors.



Wagner Leads Marinette in Win Over Oconto Falls

Marinette got back on track with a 66-47 win over Oconto Falls on Tuesday, with Matt Wagner leading the way.

The Marinette senior scored 34 points. He was the only Marine in double figures, with Jake Poetzl scoring nine and Tyler Fayta putting in seven.

The Marines led 25-18 after one half, but a 41-point second half pushed them to a big win. Falls got 14 points from Dakota Carriveau.

Marinette is 3-2 on the season.



Menominee Battles North Central But Falls 58-50

North Central topped Menominee on Tuesday behind 18 points from Carter Holle.

The Maroons fell behind 17-12 after one quarter, but they were down just three at the half. In the second half, they cut the lead once again, but Central outscored Menominee 17-10 in the final frame to get the 58-50 win.

Keagan Monroe and Aidan Bellisle each scored 13 points to lead Menominee. Dante Sartorelli and Jon Spegel each scored seven, while Crock Barrette had six.



Bulldogs Can't Hold on to Early Lead, Fall to Eagles 62-46

Inefficiency plagued the Peshtigo Bulldogs in a 62-46 loss to the Southern Door Eagles on Friday, Dec. 14.

The Bulldogs were 17-for-57 from the field (30 percent) to the Eagles' 20-45 (44 percent). Peshtigo also threw up 19 three-pointers and made just two.

"We did not shoot very well from the outside at all. I thought we had really good looks, they just didn't fall," Peshtigo coach Nate Motkowski said. "Our guys just weren't knocking them down. That's something we have to change if we want to make a nice run later in the year."

The Bulldogs started out hot, leading by half a dozen early in the first half, but they couldn't hang on, as Southern Door went on big runs to end the first half and late in the second half.

"I thought everything that we talked about going into the game, we executed well going into the game, especially in the first 10 minutes of the game," Motkowski said. "Then after that, we just kind of got away from what was working for us and Southern Door took advantage."

Mitchell VanVooren led the team with 3-of-13 shooting, but he was the only Bulldog with more than one shot to finish with a shooting percentage above 30 percent in the game. After VanVooren, the other four players to take more than two shots shot a combined 9-for-43.

Despite their struggles, the Bulldogs were able to withstand the tough shooting night, as they hung around until a 15-0 Eagles run put the game to bed.

"They went on two nice runs"one at the end of the first half and another run at the second half and that one really cost us the game," Motkowski said. "I thought, for the most part, we played well overall, but letting them go on those two runs really took away our opportunity to win."

Cade Tackmier had 12 points for Peshtigo and Reid Marquardt had eight.



Marinette Falls to Freedom 63-47 in NEC Play

The Marinette boys' basketball team had lofty goals of going undefeated in North Eastern conference play, but after Friday's 63-47 loss to Freedom, the Marines are struggling to hang with the conference's top teams.

Marinette sits at 2-2 in the NEC after Friday. The Marines trailed 30-16 at the half and couldn't pull themselves back into the game.

Jake Poetzl scored 18 points and Matt Wagner had 17. Tyler Fayta, Rylie Nelson and Trey Bretl rounded out the Marinette scoring with four apiece.

Freedom's Ty Brickner had 21 points.
