Peshtigo/ Niagara are Lone Regional Survivors

Issue Date: May 29, 2019

Peshtigo Drops Northland

Pines; Will Face Bonduel

in Regional Final

The Peshtigo Bulldogs have a chance to lock up a regional title against Bonduel on Wednesday after a gutsy performance against Northland Pines on Tuesday, a 4-1 win.

Both teams were scoreless until the third inning, when Nick Nielson singled and Brandon Eick brought him home on an error by the Northland Pines shortstop. Brody Heroux knocked in Eick on a single and the Bulldogs had a lead.

"I was happy with our guys. We kept putting the ball in play, and eventually they made an error but we got some runs across. In a playoff game if we can get that lead, it's a huge advantage, because we're dealing with high school players, a lead kind of changed the whole dynamic of the game, so I was glad we could jump out to that 2-0 lead," Peshtigo coach Neal Henrigillis said.

The Bulldogs doubled down with two more in the fourth. Travis Plym reached with two outs and Nielson doubled him home. A double from Eick doubled the Peshtigo advantage.

On the other side, Nielson was working through danger on the mound, including the bases loaded in the second and a runner in scoring position in the third.

"The early innings were really interesting. It's trying when you get to these playoff games. Any team that can jump out to a lead, it's a huge advantage for them. Northland Pines, they do a good job of hitting the ball and they had runners on base both of the first two innings," Henrigillis said.

Nielson made it through those scares and finished five innings with 93 pitches. With a 100-pitch limit, he came into the dugout asking Henrigillis if he could throw the maximum.

What Henrigillis thought might be one batter turned out be a whole inning, as Nielson made quick work of Northland Pines.

"Nick is the ultimate competitor," Henrigillis said. "As most people in the area kind of know, Nick has played this whole season with a partially torn labrum in his shoulder. Early in the year we kind of kept him kind of shorter on pitching, but as the year has gone on, he's always the guy who wants the ball."

What that extra inning could do for the Bulldogs remains to be seen. Darren Dionne came in to slam the door, throwing a scoreless seventh inning.

With under 30 pitches, he's free to throw Wednesday without restriction.

Nielson finished the game with 10 strikeouts and one earned run on two hits and four walks. He also went 3-for-4 at the plate with two runs and an RBI. Eick had two RBIs, a run and a single and Heroux went 1-for-3 with an RBI. Plym scored a run.



Peshtigo Stops

Gillett/Suring

in Regional Opener

Peshtigo wasn't threatened by Gillett/Suring on Thursday in its opening Division III playoff game.

The Bulldogs beat Gillett/Suring 12-2 behind a complete team effort.

Eight Peshtigo players had RBIs, with three multi-hit efforts and four pitchers entering the six-inning game.

Nick Nielson started the game, going two scoreless. Darren Dionne allowed two runs in two innings of work, and each Landon Lemke and Brody Heroux fired scoreless frames.

Bulldogs pitching struck out 11 batters, with Dionne and Nielson striking out four each and Lemke striking out three in his inning of work.

Both G/S runs came in the third inning, but Peshtigo had eight runs by that point.

For Peshtigo, Travis Plym walked three times, scoring three runs and adding an RBI. Jake Gordon also scored three runs, with two hits and a walk to boot.

Nick Nielson and Brandon Eick each had two RBIs and Brody Heroux had three. Eick and Heroux had two hits each.



Coleman Runs Wild

On Menominee Indian

The Coleman Cougar boys kept their post season hunt going Thursday night when they took down the visiting Menominee Indian boys 13-3 in WIAA Regional play.

The first inning was action packed from both sides. Menominee Indian posted an opening inning run in the top of the first while Coleman fired back in the bottom of the inning with a couple Cougar runs.

Coleman took the 6-1 lead during the fourth with a four run effort. Menominee Indian was able to close the gap in the fifth with a two run effort.

The Cougars closed the door on any sort of comeback by posting two runs in the bottom of the fifth and another five in the sixth.

Seth Seefeldt pitched for the Cougar victory striking out eight over his six inning and throwing 17 first pitch strikes.

At the plate Branden Engels registered three hits while Nick Teteak posted another three hits. Engels and Teteak also led the way in RBIs with each getting four.





Niagara Advances

Down Tourney Trail

The Niagara Badgers were the victors in last Thursday's Regional playoff match up with the Elcho Hornets 5-3.

The Hornets were first on the board as they fired in three second inning runs.

Thankfully for the Badgers, the defense said three runs is plenty for them as they dug in an allowed not a single run more across the rest of the innings.

Niagara tied things up in the fourth when Josh Weber hit a single, followed by Anthony Hansen on a walk. Ethan Sweig brought in Weber with a double to far left field while Tristin Dejardin helped two get to the plate with his double to left.

The lead was surpassed by the Badgers in the fifth thanks to a double from Landen Kaldor and a sacrifice fly from Weber to bring him in.

The final run of the evening was tallied by the Badgers in the sixth. Dejardin swatted a double before stealing third and cursing home off a wild pitch.



Rangers Fall in

Shutout to Badgers

The Wausaukee Rangers fell behind early and couldn't come back in a 6-0 loss to Niagara on Tuesday.

The Rangers struggled to contain the high-powered offense of Niagara, giving up six runs.

Niagara opened up scoring in the first inning, when an error scored one run for Niagara. A single by Brenden Versaskas in the second inning helped but found no end at the plate. Anthony Hansen was the winning pitcher for Niagara. He went seven innings, allowing zero runs on three hits, striking out 12 and walking one.

Andrew Schroeder took the loss for Wausaukee . He surrendered five runs on five hits over five and two-thirds innings, striking out 11.

Schroeder, Cole Caylor, and Versaskas all had one hit to lead Wausaukee.

Niagara racked up eight hits on the day. Hansen and Josh Weber all managed multiple hits for Niagara. Niagara didn't commit a single error in the field. Landon Kaldor had the most chances in the field with 12.



Coleman Meets Season

End in Regional Semi

The Coleman Cougars bowed out of the WIAA post season tournament Tuesday night when they fell hard to the visiting Bonduel Bears 13-1.

"When you play against good teams you have to make the plays you get," said Casper. "If you give them extra outs like we did, things can go wrong."

Bonduel opened the game with a bang, hitting in three runs to get the early tone setter.

"They pounded the ball in the first inning," said Coleman Coach Kent Casper. "We came back and got one, but then the wheel started coming off a bit, we didn't make plays and walked guys we shouldn't have.

Coleman was quick to respond, getting one run in the bottom of the opener. From there on out it was all Bonduel.

"We hit the ball straight to them tonight," said Casper. "They are a heck of a ball club, you really have to earn it and tonight we didn't. This was a very good Bonduel team."

Coleman did manage to hold the Bears from the plate over the second and third innings, but saw a one run fourth and a back breaking six run sixth straight to leave them outpaced. The sixth and final inning saw the Bears end the game a bit weary with their 13-1 final readout.

"We had a great year," said Casper. "Everyone is returning except for Mason, Mason had a super year as captain. So now we are looking to the younger guys to make this team have another great season next year."



Wolverines Are

Regional Champs

With Win Over

Sevastopol

The Crivitz Wolverines hosted a regional championship game with the Sevastopol Pioneers last Tuesday and were able to advance to the next round of the WIAA tournament with a 5-2 win over the Pioneers.

Crivitz started the games scoring in the first inning when Dawson Andrist walked and was brought home off a Kougar Wagner double to far right field.

Sevastopol made it a 1-1 game in the second thanks to a Nathan Stenzel run off a Caleb Malvitz single.

The lead was taken and secured with an extra run over the fourth inning.

Ethan Pelkin got that inning rolling for the Wolverines getting on base with a single to left field. Alec Grandaw reached off a bunt while Austin Burnside swatted both home off his single to deep center for the 3-1 lead.

The Pioneers made it a one run game during the stop of the sixth thanks to a Brent Haberli run which was brought in by Robby Pollman on a double to right field.

Crivitz locked the game up in the bottom of the sixth when Grandaw reached off a single followed by Eli Gruszynski who made it on due to an error. Jade Werner brought both to the plate with a double to deep center.

At the plate the Wolverines' Wagner was two of four with one RBI. Burnside and Werner were both one of four with two RBIs a piece.

Taking the mound win for the Wolverines was Werner who allowed just a mere three hits and two runs (0 earned) and three walks while striking out eight.



Marines Fall to Thunder

In Regional Semi

After a promising top of the first inning, the Marinette Marines' bats went quiet and Seymour's bats quickly got hot, leading to their elimination from the playoffs at the hands of Seymour, 5-1.

Marinette scored a run in the first inning when Tyler Fayta doubled and scored, but Seymour matched it and then some in the bottom of the inning, with five singles and a walk leading to four runs.

That was all they'd need, as Marinette couldn't get the bats heated up the rest of the game.

Trey Bretl took the loss on the mound. He had a strong day at the plate, going 2-for-3 in the ballgame.



Bretl Fires No-Hitter for

Marines in Regional

Win Over Panthers

Marinette topped Oconto Falls in a WIAA regional matchup of familiar opponents, with Trey Bretl's no-hitter the difference.

The North Eastern Conference foes engaged in what Oconto Falls coach Charles Rochon called a "very well-pitched and played high school baseball game," with Marinette getting the 3-0 win.

The teams combined for three runs, five hits and no errors, with all three runs and four of the Marines' five hits coming in the first inning.

Tyler Fayta, Nate Stewart, Braedon McMahon, Trey Bretl and Will LaLonde each had hits for Marinette, which did its work early.

McMahon, Bretl and Joe Bezio each had RBIs, while Fayta, Rylie Nelson and Stewart each scored in the first.

Rochon said Connor Peetz shut Marinette down after that, but "the damage was done."

Bretl was lights out on the hill for the Marines, striking out 10 and allowing zero hits and four walks over seven innings to get the win.
