Peshtigo Gets Narrow Victory Over Oconto

Issue Date: January 23, 2020

Peshtigo Gets Win Over Oconto

The Peshtigo Bulldog Boys got a nice win over the Oconto Blue Devils Tuesday night when they fired off a 58-53 win over the boys from Oconto.

Peshtigo fought hard to keep the lead in their hands for much of the game. At the end of the first half the Bulldogs had taken control with a slight edge 26-22.

It was an odd game," said Peshtigo Head Coach Nate Motkowski. "They were shorthanded and we found ourselves shorthanded with foul trouble and illnesses. But I give Oconto credit. I thought they showed more heart and energy than our guys so we are extremely lucky to get away with the win."

That lead was built upon over the second half with another 32 points posted by the Bulldogs. The Blue Devils on the other hand managed to post 31 points over the final frame.

"During the second half they were throwing a couple different things at us," said Motkowski. "I think when they did pressure us that kind of opened the court for our guys who were looking for opening to get through and attack."

Leading the Bulldogs was the evenings top scorer Cade Tackmier who fired off 19 points over the match up.

Landon Lemke followed with 13 points while Breyden Demmith finished the game with 10 points.

Caleb Moe led the Blue Devils with 18 points. Josh Woller posted 12 points while Wusterbarth got eight on the night.

"At this point in the game our lack of experience is no longer an excuse we can use," said Motkowski. "I think our guys got rattled but we need to grow up and begin understanding just how important it is to take care of the ball."



Stockbridge Puts Away Wausaukee

The Wausaukee Ranger boys could not stop the Stockbridge squad from coming back in the second half of Thursday night match up in Wausaukee, as Stockbridge recovered from a first half deficit to take the win 57-48.

Though the Rangers eventually fell behind, they looked as if they might have had control in the first as they went into the intermission ahead 26-22.

But a 35 point offensive effort from Stockbridge eclipsed the 22 points the rangers were able to muster over the closing minutes.

For the Rangers it was Tristin Pollard's night. The quick striking Ranger amassed 19 points to top all scorers for the night. Teammates Brandon Shigouri and Andrew Schroeder both posted nine points each while Hayden Rainbow chipped in seven.

Stockbridge was led by Jake Willett with 18 points and Noah Hermann with 17. Zach Daun posted 10 while Joey Schneider got nine.



Coleman Leaves Lena Shell Shocked

The Coleman Cougars unleashed artillery in their Thursday night match up in Lena against the home court Wildcats who they shutdown quick, fast and in a hurry, finishing the game with a 76-33 differential.

The contest which saw the Cougars put away the Wildcats in the first ended the first half with a big 40-18 lead. Far too much to overcome by the Wildcats who posted 15 second half points to the Cougars' overwhelming 36.

Peyton Nelson led all scorers for the evening with 17 points for the Cougars. Trey Sadowski got into the mix with 13 points while Nick Teteak pitched in 11 points to the winning effort.

Lena's Max Beyer led the way for the Wildcats with 15 points while Simon Gard added nine. Mason Simonson chipped in four.



STAA Beats Niagara by Two

The St.Thomas Aquinas Cavaliers got a nice win over the Niagara Badgers Thursday night, holding off the Badgers in the second half the Cavvies took the win 48-46.

STAA started strong, and if they hadn't they might not have taken the win. Over the first Kadin Baxter, Ethan Russell and Alex Powers all hit from behind the arc to help propel their squad to the 21-18 first half lead.

But the Badgers weren't ready to give up as they fired in 28 second half points, meting STAA's 27 second half tally.

By games end it was Kadin Baxter who established himself as the evenings top performer, getting 20 points for the Cavvies. Powers finished the evening with 14 points while Russell got seven.

Niagara was led by Josh Weber who got 11 points. Sladen Dunlap added up 10 while Dawson Lincoln and Edward Swanson both chipped in eight points each.



Peshtigo Comes Away With Win Over NEW Lutheran

In an epic struggle the Peshtigo Bulldogs bagged a close win over the visiting NEW Lutheran Blazers, defeating them by way of a 55-52 final verdict.

The contest was tight from start to finish with neither team giving the other an inch to work with. Over the first the teams battled hard and entered the intermission with Peshtigo just slightly ahead 27-26.

The second half was almost identical to the first with the Bulldogs keeping control with the 28-26 scoring edge.

Cade Tackmier led the way for the Bulldogs with 17 points while Breyden Demmith pitched in 14 points to the effort. Tanner Marquardt added up nine on the night.

Marshal Bukowski led the Blazers with 17 points while Elijah Lange posted 14 points. Elijah Meerstein added 10 to the tally.



Marquette Defeats Menominee

The Marquette Redmen took a win over the Menominee Maroons last week by way of a 64-29 final verdict.

It was Marquette's game from start to finish as the Redmen fired off a 32-14 first half lead.

Menominee was unable to recover from the staggering first half blow and was handed the loss.

Leading Marquette was Lotterman with 22 points and Karp with 12 points. Sager added up nine.

Menominee was led by Monroe with 11 points and Sartorelli with six points. Baker posted four on the night.



Menominee Gets Win Over Stephenson

The Menominee Maroons were able to post another win on the season last week when they took down the Stephenson Eagles 75-27.

The win saw the Maroons get ahead in the first half and never look back as they entered the locker room with the 44-21 lead.

Menominee was led by Keagan Monroe with 14 points and Bellisle with 14 points. Uecke added 14 as well.

Stephenson was led by Kuehnau with 10 points and Colder with six points. Starzynski got five points.



Wausaukee Gets Win Over Gillett

The Wausaukee Ranger Boys posted a much needed win over the Gillett Tigers Tuesday night 59-45.

The win helps get the Rangers back on track and into a scoring groove. They hit that groove early in Tuesday night match up, getting ahead at the half with a 35-23 lead.

After the closing frame the rangers were able to amass another 24 points while holding the Tigers to 22 points.

By games end Gillett's Elijah Frammes had taken the top scoring spot with 18 points to his name. Derek Block added on 13 points while Logan Block pitched in 10.

Andrew Schroeder got 15 points to lead the Rangers while Hayden Renikow followed up with 12. Tristan Pollard added 11 to the final tally.



Marinette Gets Slammed by Freedom

The Marinette Marine Boys found themselves on the wrong end of a rout Tuesday night when they took on the Freedom Irish. After two half of play the Irish had amassed a 62-35 final verdict.

Marinette did keep within striking distance over the first half, getting 14 points to the Irish's 24. But a more than tough Irish squad found a way to adjust and stop the Marines dead in their tracks.

Freedom was led by Maslan with 14 points and VanCalster with nine points. Rupiper posted seven.

Marinette was led by Polazzo with 11 points and Sommerfeld with eight. Maye also posted eight for his Marines.
