Peshtigo Girls Get on Winning Track With Victory Over Omro

Issue Date: December 12, 2019

Peshtigo Girls take Advantage of Omro's Injuries

While turnovers and foul trouble could have plagued the Peshtigo Girls varsity basketball team Tuesday, Dec. 10th, Omro's varsity basketball was without key players due to injury.

Junior Grace Wickman hit two 3-pointers, and so did sophomore Emma Gilligan, while the Bulldogs got 2 baskets from junior Allison Dudka and another 2 buckets from sophomore Sydney Lund in order to help Peshtigo jump out to a 26-13 lead in the first half.

Foul trouble slowed down the last 5 minutes of the haflfwith both teams getting into bonus though Wickman was able to pull the trigger on another 3-pointer to bring the Bulldog's lead to 30-15. A fast break layup by Mattie LeCoursiere had Peshtigo walking into the locker room with a 32-15 lead at halftime.

Wickman's foul trouble from the first half lingered into the start of the 2nd half, and almost as soon as it began, she picked up 2 fouls sending her to the bench with over 17 minutes left to play in the game. But the rest of the Bulldogs would step up and play as if she was still there.

The Bulldog's zone defense held strong, keeping Omro to just 11 points in the second half, all of those points were free throws. Offensively the zone defense aided Peshtigo in getting the ball out in transition faster, and the lady Bulldogs used it to their advantage. Peshtigo was able to work the ball inside to get three buckets from junior Dreya Detry lengthening their lead to 52-20. Bulldog freshman Jaci Tonn brought the score up by another 2 points with a fast break layup bringing the score to 54-20. Every Bulldog got some playing time, and in the final minutes, scores from freshman Akira Smalls, and Allison Peters were able to score as well. Wickman and Lund lead Peshtigo with 11 points each. LaCoursiere added 8, Detry tallied 7, while Gilligan had 6 points.



Freedom's Defense too Much for Marinette

The Marines hosted the possibly their toughest opponent, Freedom Irish Tuesday night at Marinette high school, after two away games in Northeastern Conference action. Freedom has a deep bench, and have 13 players over 5'7", and were able to use that to their advantage against an undersized Marinette Marine team.

The Irish racked up 16 points before Marinette Marine Katelyn Kitzinger scored her first goal of the night with a layup. Kitzinger was also fouled on the play and was able to complete the 3-point play. The clock was at 12:00 when the Marines got their first score of the game, making it 16-3 Freedom. Marine head coach Zac Barker said, "Katelyn does different things well every game"these past few games she (Kitzinger) hasn't been scoring as much but she's been there with assists. She stepped up and wasn't afraid of two or three people coming at her. They (Freedom) threw a lot of traps and different things at her and she responded well. It's positive to see her get back to scoring where she would like to be." Katelyn Kitzinger paced Marinette with 19 points.

Though the height and experience of the Irish was just too much for the Marines as Freedom built a 25-point lead at halftime and was able to go on to win the North Eastern Conference victory over Marinette, 76-25. Marinette head coach Zac Barker said it was Freedom's defense that held Marinette from getting any clean looks at the basket throughout the night. "We had a couple of open looks, but most of our shots were contested"so it's tough to get off shots when they have that length. Almost everyone on their team is taller than our tallest player and they talk very well on defense. That makes it very difficult to get open looks."



Wildcats Take Loss to Stockbridge

The Lena Wildcats took a tough loss to the visiting Stockbridge girls who were able to overcome a 28-22 halftime deficit to win 43-39.

Though Stockbridge was the eventual winners it was the Wildcats who held the edge after half the game. Lena's Chaela Rabas led the way in that good start for the Wildcats, hitting 11 points over her first half. One of which included a three point bucket.

But well rounded attack by the Stockbridge girls over the second half was too much for the Wildcats to surmount.

During that second half Stockbridge's Maddie LeGault struck for seven points, six of which came from behind the arc.

Lena would end the game with top scoring honors with 16 points while her teammate Grace Vandehey posted 10 points. Laurynn Ruppenthal posted nine for Stockbridge.

Lena was led by the efforts of Rabas with 12 points, Kennedy Marquardt posted 11 points while Natalie McNurlen, Chloe Potter and Brianna Spatlin all got four points each.



Wausaukee Stay Undefeated With Win Over STAA

The Wausaukee Rang girls basketball squad has yet to met their match on the harwood of area basketball courts. In fact they have been pretty dominant and Last Friday was no exception as the Rangers' setdown the St. Thomas Aquinas Cavaliers 58-28.

It was pretty much all over the end of the first half as the rangers sprinted their way to a hefty 42-8 lead at the intermission. During the first half STAA could do little to stop the advance of Steph Murray who viciously battled her way to 11 first half points. Madelyn Schlies was also near unstoppable over the first as she posted 10 points. Kaelyn Schlies also went wild in the first getting 11 points as well.

Another 16 points for the Rangers over the second put the girls in red way above their opponents who were able to improve their second half mark with 20 additional points.

Wausaukee's Murray took top scoring honors during the game with a 15 point final readout. M. Schlies followed up with 14 points while K. Schlies kept her team way ahead with a supplementary 13 points. Allison Versaskas also pitched into the high scoring effort with eight points.

STAA was led by Hallie Beranek with eight points. Addison Pristelski and Nevaeh Tebo both posted six points each.



Florence Falls in Close Match With North Dickinson

The Florence Bobcat girls recovered from a bad start in the first quarter to nearly overcome North Dickinson by games end. But a three point margin in North Dickinson's favor would be the difference maker.

Were it not for a slow start by the Bobcats, which saw them score 5 to North Dickinson's 14, they may have taken this one home as a win. But tough North Dickinson would not relinquish the lead.

At halftime North Dickinson was ahead 31-18. A mark that the Florence girls narrowed but could not surpass.

In the games final quarter Florence really made up some ground, hitting for 22 points while stopping North Dickinson at just nine fourth quarter points.

By games end Madisen Neuens had led the way with 18 points while Jordyn Springer followed up with a 13 point helping. Jenna Springer also made double digits with 11 points.



Suring Slips By Coleman in Close Contest

The Suring Eagles found a way to edge out the visiting Coleman Cougars Friday night as they took a 47-42 victory over the Cougars.

The Eagles were able to work their way to a first half lead of 22-16 over the first half, which by any mean was a comfortable buffer. But the Suring girls were determined to overcome that make, doing so in the second frame by shooting out the lights for 31 points while holding the Cougars to 20 points.

Suring's Kylee Steelier posted a game high of 24 points while Kate Mahoney chipped in eight. Paige Krueger posted nine points.

Coleman was led by Cameron Compe with 16 points and Hailey Zimmer with nine points. Aubrey Blintz chipped in four along with Maddy Hoida who also shot for four.



Florence Recovers Footing With Win Over Laona/Wabeno

After taking a close loss early in the week the Florecne girls recovered and fought like Bobcats, scratching up a 60-58 win over the Rebels.

The tale of the score sheets bares out what went down in the match up. Jordan Springer and Madison Neuens are what happened. The two combined for 44 of the total 60 points. With Jenna Springer giving an extra boost with nine.

At games end Jordan Springer had earned top scoring honors with 23 points followed by Neuens with 21 and Jenna Springer with nine. Faith Neuens added five while Lacey Enders posted the all important two point difference maker.



Crivitz Defeats Niagara

The Crivitz Wolverine girls defeated the Niagara Badger Friday night 67-34. The hard fought win by the Wolverines was keyed by a superlative performance by Wolverine Chloe Gruszynski who helped power her team to a 35 point first half lead thanks to a 10 point effort. Emalee Johnsen was also quick hitting in the first frame, knocking down nine points of her own. At the half the Wolverines led 35-14.

The Wolverines kept attacking over the second half with another 32 points while holding the Niagara attacker at bay with 21 second half points.

Gruszynski led all scorers with 18 points while Sianna Guns chipped in eight.

Niagara was led by Jessica Oratch and Cassie Gill with 11 points each.
