Crivitz Cages Cougars For Outright M&O Title

Issue Date: February 21, 2019

The Crivitz Wolverines capped off a perfect M&O Conference season with a 62-50 win over the Coleman Cougars on Monday, winning the title outright.

The Wolverines went ahead 20-12 with under nine minutes to go in the first half and the lead was nine, 29-18, at the halftime break. Crivitz stretched the lead to 11, but the Cougars cut the lead down to six quickly.

"At halftime, that was their chance," Crivitz coach Jeff Baumann said of the Cougars. "They were going to come out aggressively and I talked at length about us stepping it up and we came out and we were flat."

Crivitz had its eyes on that individual conference title, however. They buckled down defensively and kept cool heads offensively.

"We didn't force a whole lot," Baumann said.

After the lead dropped to six with 11:02 to go in the game, it never got any closer, growing to as large as 20 and never dropping back into the single digits.

Tim Forner's Cougars finish the season 14-2 in M&O play, just shy of a tie for the title.

Baumann said he talked to his team about how it would feel to lose sole possession of the title on its home floor.

"Credit Coleman, they played hard. They played really hard," Baumann said, saying his Wolverines rebounded well and played good defense to lock up the conference.

"Jeff's got one heck of a group of kids. They just fight hard and if you don't come and bring your A-game, you're going to have a hard time walking out with a win," Forner said of the Wolverines, who were led by Chandler Kaldenberg and Jaden Werner with 16 points each. Dawson Andrist had 13 and Eian Baumann scored 10.

For Coleman, Payton Nelson scored 12 and Cayden Bintz had 11. Preston Gusick led the Cougars with 16 points.

"I'm really proud of how Preston played tonight. He knows it's coming to an end here. He's all effort, all heart," Forner said. "He doesn't say much at all. He's not much of a verbal leader. He leads by his actions on the floor, he's his own critic. I could scream bloody murder at the kid and he'd smile back at me, "yes, coach,' and that would be it. He's a great kid, he had a great night and I was glad to see it."

Coleman Edges Oneida Nation in Close Scramble

The Coleman Cougars had to keep the tempo up all game long Thursday night when they hosted the Oneida Nation Thunderhawks, who refused to go down without a fight, trailing the Cougars at the end of regulation by seven points 56-49.

After one half of play the score was essentially 0-0 as both team plugged out a 21 point first half effort.

Coleman however made the right adjustment comeback onto the court after intermission as they fired in 35 to close the game. The Cougar defense limited the Thunderhawks to 28 points over the closing minutes, creating the gap they needed to ensure victory.

Cougar Nick Teteak had his number called many times during the contest, and proved he was ready to rise to the challenge as he led all scorers with 20 points. Hayden Blintz was also found open multiple times during the night, hitting for a 16 point helping of the total. Payton Nelson rounded off the double digit boys for Coleman with 10 points. Simon Maedke plugged out six on the nigh, which ended upon proving to be the deciding factor.

Oneida was led by Javon Webster with 15 points and Jose Sanchez with 12. Pasha Hill chipped in nine points while David Danforth III added seven to the Thunderhawk tally.

Suring Finds Stride Against Tigerton

The Suring Eagle boys bagged a nice confidence booster over the Tigerton Tiger Thursday night at home 50-30.

The Surjng boys got a fantastic start in this one, finding a way to fire in 28 first half points while stopping Tigerton at a mere 10.

Tigerton made some gains over the second with a 20 point readout but were unable to quell the Eagle attack which added another 22 points onto the final verdict.

Caleb Lally took top scoring honors for the Eagles with 15 points over both halves while Mitch Stegeman employed a 12 point attack to help build that sizable lead. Dequez Sepulveda followed up with six points on the night.

Tigerton was led by Kaeden Miller with 14 points and Austin Hoffman with seven.

Florence Finds Win Against Crandon

The Florence Bobcat boys found themselves in a real barn burner last Thursday evening when they took on the visiting Crandon Cardinals, who they maganed to beat in a close final verdict 55-51.

Leading the way for the Bobcats was Riley Hixon with 18 points. Kaden Schuls and Evan Beaster both punched their game tickets with 14 point readouts.

Marion Sets Gillett Down

The Marion Tiger took a 65-57 victory over the Gillett Tiger boys Thursday night 65-57.

Top scoring honors went to Marion's Beech who fired in 18 points. He was followed by Clegg with 14 and Krueger with 10.

Gillett was led by Cole Long with 17 points and Logan Block with 16. Logan Krause posted 12 points.

Rangers Knock Wildcats Back Into Cellar

The Lena Wildcats, who desperately seek to prove they don't belong in the M&O Conference's cellar found themeless set back down those stair by the tough and fast striking Wausaukee Ranger boys, who finished the night on top 54-30.

It was all about the one scoring sprint in this showdown. Wausaukee wasn't about to give the Wildcats any wiggle room as they blasted the score boards for 35 first half points. Meanwhile the Ranger defense was on lockdown, stopping the Wildcats from mustering more than a 16 point opening effort.

During that opening frame Wausaukee's Hayden Renikow demanded payment for his shots and the accurate shooter got it, entering the locker room with 14 points under his name.

Tristan Pollard also enjoyed considerable success in the early goings, striking on a double helping of threes before returning to the court in the second half for two more treys.

Lena's Colby Borchert had a great game, fighting hard for his Wildcats with a game leading 16 points. He shared top scoring honors with Wausaukee's Pollard.

Following Pollard on the Wausaukee stat readout was Renikow with 14 points and Tyler Gruszynski with eight.

Borchert's effort was backed up by a six point push from Max Bayer and a four point readout by Simon Gard.

Coleman Outdoes Lena

The Coleman Cougars gave the Lena Wildcats a tough loss in Coleman Monday night 58-31.

Three Cougars displayed some great teamwork during the win. Logan Zeitler, Preston Gusick and Nick Teteak all did their part making double digits. Gusick and Teteak both got 10 while Zeitler posted 11.

Max Beyer led the way for the Wildcats with 10 points while Colby Borchert followed up with six.

Niagara Gets Crushed By Suring

Then Niagara Badgers found themselves getting handed a crushing defeat Monday night on their home court. As the Suring Eagles slammed them to the hardwood 66-28.

After one half of play the Eagles had already secured the win for the most part. Caleb Lally led the charge in that first half helping push his team to a 39-14 lead at the half with 19 first half points to his name.

By the end of the game Lally had sunk four three pointers on his way to a game leading 24 points. Mitch Stegeman posted 16 points while Jayden Genniesse put down 11 points.

Niagara was led by Tristan DeJardin with eight points and Logan Bath with five points.

Crivitz Heads into Final Stretch Hot

The Crivitz Wolverines, who hold the lead in the M&O, kept their title hopes secure Monday night when they posted a 77-45 victory over the hosting Gillett Tigers.

The Tigers played a great first half, keeping pace with the Wolverines with 28 points, just behind the Wolverines who plugged out a 34 point first half effort.

The second half was a different story as the Crivitz boys readjusted their strategy, blasting the Tigers with a 43-17 second half differential.

Top of thew scoring sheets was Wolverine Chandler Kaldenberg who fired in 17 points for his Wolverines. Dawson Andrist followed up with 15 points while Eain Baumann chipped in 13 points to the winning effort. Jaden Werner finished strong with 11 points.

Gillett was led by Krueger with 13 points and Logan Block with 11.
