Patriots No Match

For High Powered Crivitz;

Werner Slaps Grandslam


The Crivitz Wolverines had a full slate of games this week and during these match ups, they have shown that they can produce hits, and by the bunches. In their contest with the Patriots of Goodman-Pembine.

Friday night they slapped hits faster than the Patriots could pitch, ending the night after five and a half innings 16-0.

Were it not for a single hit from the Patriots Boone Larison, Wolverine Austin Burnisde would have had a perfect game.

The blow out win was put on end by Jaden Werner and Dawson Andrist. During the first inning Andrist reached on a single to the infield. Werner sent him home off a sacrifice fly to deep center.

During the next inning With bases loaded and the scoreboard reading two outs for the Wolverines, Werner cranked a grandlsam over the left field fence. Before the inning was wrapped up Jonah Behrendt hit a two RBI double, bringing the Wolverines to a 9-0 second inning lead.

Another seven inning crossed for the Wolverines during the bottom of the fifth.

At the plate the Wolverines were led by Andrist with a two of two showing with three runs. Chase Gosse was four of four with three runs and two RBIs while Werner went on of one for two runs and six RBIs.

On the mound the Wolverines Burnside allowed just one hit and two walks along with his eight strikeouts.



Crivitz Falls by

One To Freedom


The Crivitz Wolverines suffered a close loss to the hosting Freedom Isrish Saturday afternoon as the Irish pushed across one run in the final inning to take the lead and win.

Crivitz got their offense going with a walk from Andrist. A few hitters later he crossed home thanks to a single by Jaden Werner. Werner scored off a tag up.

Freedom answered with two runs off a Kyle Elias triple to right field. Freedom took the lead during the third thanks to a home run from Dan Van Troll.

Crivitz tied things up at 3-3 in the fifth inning thanks to a walked forced score by Austin Burnside.

Freedoms's Myles Rudie shut the game down in the bottom of the seventh when he broke the 3-3 gridlock with a single left that brough home Beau Schwaller for the 4-3 win.

Crivitz's Cougar Wagner was saddled with the loss on the mound. He gave up four hits and four runs (three earned) while striking out six.

Freedom's Jaden Behnke strike out 10 while allowing three hits and three earned runs while also allowing two walks.

At the plate the Wolverines saw Werner finish the night one of three with one run and one RBI. Alec Grandaw was one of three with one run. Eli Gruszynski posted the other hit in his one of three effort.



Crivitz Blanks

Two Rivers


Friday night the Wolverines of Crivitz took on the the hosting Two Rivers boys and were awarded a 4-0 win for their effort.

For the Wolverines Friday night, it was all about what was coming off the mound, and eveything that came from the direction was just about perfect as mound man Jaden Werner never allowed an opening for the Two Rivers hitters. He finished his seven inning effort with only on hit on him. He also walked on but where he really shined was in the strikeout column where he carried a number that was nearly unbelieable, he struck out 17! Thats all but five at bats that didn't end in "K's'"

Ethan Pelkin gave the Wolverines a 1-0 lead in the fourth when he hit a sacrifice fly to left field, giving the quick footed Jaden Weren an opening at the plate.

Werner did his part at the plate as well, swatting home Dawson Andrist on a single.

The seventh and final inning saw Chad Schroeder record an RBI off a walk while Andrist clubbed in Kougar Wagner off a single to right field.

At then plate the Wolverines were led by Werner who went two of four with one run and one RBI. Behrendt was one of three with one run.



Menominee Gives

Coleman Stout

Challenge


The Menominee Maroons traveled to Coleman Thursday night where they fell to powerful Coleman 5-0.

The loss thought still shutout saw the Maroons hold back what is normally a high scoring baseball machine.

That machine was still however chunring just fine as the Cougars chugged along for two runs in the first, one in the fourth and two final run in the fifth.



Coleman leads

Wausaukee in

Rain Out Game


The Coleman Cougars were ahead 4-1 during the fifth inning of Monday nights competition with the Wausaukee Rangers before mother nature started to water her fields with a nice little spring shower, well more like a spring downpour as the infield turned to mud and the game was called.

Wausaukee kept the normal quick scoring Cougar machine at bay for the first three innings before the Cougars posted the first run of the evening. The Cougars took the 4-0 lead over the top of the fifth while the Rangers posted a single run before the rain forced them to retreat to the dug out.

Seth Seefeldt took the mound for the Cougars going four innings, allowing one run one hit and three strikeouts.

Andrew Schoeder pitched the abbreviated game for the Rangers allowing four runs and five hits over five innings. He struck out two.

At the plate Wausaukee's Kyle Struve was one of two.

Coleman's Nick Teteak was two of three at the plate.



Rangers Rout Wolves

in Non-Confgerecne Win


The Wausaukee Rangers were near unstoppable at the plate Tuesday night when they took on the hosting Algoma Wolves who they shutdown 14-5.

The game was tied at four with Wausaukee batting in the bottom of the fourth when Cole Caylor singled on a 1-1 count, scoring three runs.

The Rangers opened up an early lead in the first inning when Caylor singled on a 2-1 count, scoring one run.

Wausaukee took the lead for good with four runs in the fourth inning. In the fourth Tyler Gruszynski singled on a 3-2 count, scoring one run. The Rangers tallied six runs in the fifth inning. Hayden Renikow, Gruszynski, and Justin Parr all contributed in the big inning with RBIs.

Kyle Struve earned the win for the Rangers. He allowed six hits and five runs over five innings, striking out seven. Caylor threw one inning in relief out of the bullpen.

Bryce Duerst took the loss for Algoma Wolves Varsity. He surrendered four runs on five hits over three innings, striking out five and walking one.

Wausaukee totaled ten hits in the game. Renikow, Gruszynski, and Caylor each racked up multiple hits for Wausaukee Rangers Varsity. Renikow went 3-for-4 at the plate to lead Wausaukee in hits.

Max Panger led Algoma Wolves Varsity with three hits in three at bats.



FVL Sets Down

Oconto Falls


The Oconto Falls boys were slapped with a hard loss Tuesday afternoon as the Fox Valley Lutheran boys bagged the win 13-5.

Braden Ullman was given the loss on the mound for the Panthers giviing up three hits while striking out five.

Jake Foster went two for three while Uleman was two for two at the plate.



Marinette Splits a

Pair With Denmark


It was a mixed bag for the Marinette Marines on Tuesday, as they beat Denmark in the first game of a doubleheader, 5-2, but fell 8-2 in the second game of the day.

In game one, Marinette did its damage early. Marinette scored one in the first inning and three in the second, then held on for the win.

The Marines made the most of six hits to score five runs with the help of four walks and an error.

Denmark got two runs: one off of Trey Bretl in four and two thirds innings. He struck out seven and allowed three hits and five walks to get the win.

Tyler Fayta was 2-for-4 with a run and RBI for Marinette. He was the only Marine with multiple hits.

Nathan Stewart, who also pitched two and a third, allowing one run, had two RBIs and a run scored in the game.

Denmark loaded the bases in the final inning, but Stewart held firm.

"I think our pitchers did a nice job," coach Andy Walters said. "A couple times we got into a little bit of trouble and we did a nice job of being bulldogs up there and battling through it and getting the outs when we really needed them."

Asaia Polazzo scored two runs in the game out of the nine-hole in the lineup. Walters praised the work that the bottom of his order did in the first game.

The second game was something of an opposite of the first game. Marinette did score a run in the first, but Denmark matched it, scored two in the second, four in the third and one in the fourth to take an 8-1 lead. Marinette got another one in the sixth, but that was it.

Marinette had six hits again, but they didn't go nearly as far.

The Marines' pitching staff allowed eight runs, with just five earned due to four errors. Rylie Nelson took the loss, going three innings and allowing seven runs.

Stewart went 2-for-3 with two runs and Nelson was 2-for-3 with two RBIs.



Andrist Pitches Crivitz

Past Lena/STAA


It wasn't a full game due to rain, but Crivitz and Lena/St. Thomas Aquinas got out on the field for five innings Monday, with Crivitz winning 6-0.

It goes into the books as a Wolverine win, but it was also something of a moral victory for Lena/STAA.

Ethan Pelkin, Jonah Behrendt and Eli Gruszynski each scored runs in the fourth to give Crivitz a lead. In the fifth, Jaden Werner, Pelkin and Kougar Wagner each scored runs, with the latter reaching on an error and Werner and Pelkin each singling and scoring.

Dawson Andrist started on the mound for Crivitz, allowing just one hit in five innings and striking out five. It was his first time out on the mound this season. Perhaps the best part of his performance was how he controlled his pitch count, keeping it at 66 through five innings.

"We'll take that," Wolverine coach Jeff Dorschner said. "Just to get out there and be able to throw strikes and challenge hitters was good to see."

It was the first time out on the field for Lena/STAA and the first time facing live pitching.

"You can see by the way we hit that's the first time seeing live pitching," coach Rick Hofer said. "We've been hitting in the cage. The cage isn't good, but it's better than no swings. We had some guys hit the ball, so we didn't play too badly, really."

Crivitz wasn't too happy with its offensive output, on the other hand. That wasn't a secret coming into the year, however.

"Offensively, that was a concern to start the year. We're a couple of weeks into the season and it's still a concern yet, so we'll work at it and hopefully we can improve in that area," Dorschner said. "We made a couple mental mistakes and our approaches at the plate still aren't where they need to be yet, but as long as we can pitch and play defense, we'll be O.K."



Bulldogs Rally Late

to Slip Past Blazers


Junior Nick Nielson and a freshman arm keyed Peshtigo's 7-6 win over NEW Lutheran on Friday.

The Peshtigo junior broke a 6-6 tie in the bottom of the sixth inning with an RBI single, scored two runs and got the win on the mound in relief of freshman Landon Lemke with an inning and two thirds, allowing one unearned run.

"Nick did his job," Peshtigo coach Neal Henrigiliis said. "He's pitching through a partially torn shoulder. He threw strikes, we unfortunately didn't pick them up."

Lemke started the game, going three and a third and allowing five runs and five walks with two strikeouts.

He allowed three runs in the first inning before settling down and throwing scoreless innings in the second and third, which allowed Peshtigo to tie the game back up on a three-run double by Brody Heroux.

Darren Dionne finished things off with two scoreless innings, striking out three. Peshtigo, playing a heavy schedule early, is facing a pitching backlog as it battles pitch counts early in the season.

"I think Landon did a fantastic job," Henrigillis said of his freshman pitcher. "I told Landon yesterday that he had the start and Landon's a confident kid. He's confident in his abilities and it really showed today. He did a great job through a couple walks early. I was proud of the way he attacked batters. He never backed down from any of them, so I was really pleased to see the way he pitched today."



Bulldogs Can't Weather

The Storm, Fall 11-1


Thursday was not Peshtigo's night, as the reigning Packerland Conference champions were beaten handily by Kewaunee.

Peshtigo scored one in the second to match Kewaunee's one from the first inning, but Kewaunee got four in the second inning to take a lead it wouldn't lose.

The Storm were held in check until the fifth, when they got one more. In the sixth, they tallied five runs to end things early.

Brody Heroux took the loss for Peshtigo going an inning and a third, allowing five earned runs on three hits and four walks.

Landon Lemke didn't allow a run in three and a third, striking out five. Mitchel Peters allowed two runs and Travis Plym allowed one. Peshtigo pitching issued 12 walks in the game.

Peshtigo coach Neal Henrigillis took the blame for what he said was the team's worst performance in his tenure.

"We didn't prepare the way we should have," he said. "Our pitchers just weren't ready to throw strikes. I always tell these guys that if we throw strikes, we've got good enough defense to play with anyone, but today was the ultimate charity game. We struck out eight times at the plate and we gave them [12] walks, so I'd like to say that they beat us, but I really don't believe that. It was a charity game. We completely gave them that game."

Peshtigo only had two hits in the game. Nolan Lemke scored a run after reaching on a walk and coming around on a Peters single. Brandon Eick had the other Peshtigo hit.

Packerland Conference player of the year Daniel Stangel threw strikes and mowed down hitters for the Storm.

He only threw a handful of breaking pitches all games, but he filled up the zone and was able to clear six innings in 100 pitches.

"He just threw strikes," Henrigillis said. "You've got to give him credit. He was the player of the year in the conference last year for a reason. Granted, he's mostly a hitter, but he did what their team needed today, which was throw strikes and let their defense play, so he did a good job."



Oconto Falls Drops

Game to Denmark 10-5


Denmark defeated Oconto Falls 10-5 on Thursday, April 4 behind a four-run third and two in the fourth.

Oconto Falls couldn't recover, as Jack Satori struck out six and allowed just five hits for Denmark. He didn't issue any walks.

Oconto Falls, traveling on the road as its field was unplayable, put Braden Uelman on the mound. He allowed just one hit, but walked four Viking hitters.

Connor Peetz went 2-for-3 for Oconto Falls.

"Have to get the bat on the ball more and square it up," Oconto Falls coach Charles Rochon said. "We are putting the ball in play but without much authority."

He did praise his defense, which had just one error in the game.
