Bulldogs Rally to Beat Blue Devils 55-51

Issue Date: January 27, 2021

The Peshtigo Bulldogs and Oconto Blue Devils met Friday for what was likely one of the most exciting games of the year for the two teams.

Luckily for Oconto, which came out on the wrong end by a 55-51 score, the two teams will likely see each other at least once more this season, potentially twice depending on how the playoffs shake out.

The Blue Devils will be itching to avenge their loss, especially considering how things ended.

Oconto jumped out to a 23-9 lead early, but by halftime, Peshtigo had taken a 26-25 lead.

The teams went back and forth in the second half, with five lead changes and two ties before Oconto went on a 10-2 run to make it 49-43 late in the game.

Down 48-43, Peshtigo coach Jason Boucher called a timeout, and it seemed to do the trick. Peshtigo then went on a 10-1 run lead to take the score to 53-49 on a bucket by Adam Bauman.

Oconto got two free throws from Josh Woller late in the proceedings, but Peshtigo got two free throws from Mauz Salem to make it 55-51 and wrap things up.

Landon Lemke was Peshtigo's leading scorer with 17 points, Mason Doberstein scored 11 and Adam Bauman had 10, but it was Salem and Jacob Berth who got the first mentions from Peshtigo coach Jason Boucher after the game.

Berth covered Woller, Oconto's top scorer. Berth held Woller to 5-of-17 shooting. Woller finished with 15 points.

"Tonight, I challenged our junior Jacob Berth to cover Woller and I'm telling you what, Jake Berth did an excellent job. He got some open shots and knocked them down, he hit some free throws, and that was big for us," Boucher said. "Jake played a heck of a game for us tonight. He did exactly what we needed and I think his teammates fed off that, especially in the second half."

Salem scored nine points, making all five of his free throw attempts in the game.

"Mauz has that ability in him every night. We're trying to tell him in practice just to be more aggressive on offense," Boucher said. "He gets too lackadaisical on offense and doesn't know whether to pressure it in there and kick it out or actually go all the way in there. When he just plays and doesn't think, he does a heck of a job for us too. He did a little bit of everything tonight. He rebounds the ball from the guard spot tremendously."

It wasn't just those two that helped Peshtigo to its big win, however.

"I know I named those two guys, but that's a group effort tonight. Everybody that came in did what they were supposed to do and it feels good," Boucher said.

For Oconto, it was senior night, though it wasn't Oconto's final game. The Blue Devils just wanted to make sure their students got a senior night due to the uncertainties that come with a COVID-affected season.

The Blue Devils are a senior-heavy team, so it was disappointing to not get a win on their senior night.

"They outplayed us in the second half. We are the more experienced team. You have an 11-point lead, you have to be able to put those games away and we just let them hang around, hang around and then they out-played us down the stretch, it's simple," Oconto coach John Moe said. "They're a lot like us last year, they're junior-dominated like we were last year. We're senior-dominated this year, and we had one game where we beat them last year, they turned around and did the same. You'd expect a senior-laden team to be a little more disciplined."

He said his team is disappointed, but there's no time to hang their heads, as the two teams will play another next week, and Moe thinks they'll play one another in the playoffs as well.

"It's tough. The kids are hurt. It's senior night for them" I told the kids, "it's an emotional night, but thank goodness we've got more games to play,'" Moe said. "And we're going to have a rematch with Peshtigo I think in like a week and a half, and odds are we're probably going to get them in the playoffs too, I imagine. They got round one for sure and we've got to snap back. It's tough. The kids are really down and it's to be expected when you lose a heartbreaker like that."

Caleb Moe scored 11 points for Oconto, while Logan Allan and Kadin Baxter had eight apiece.



Wausaukee Squeaks Win Past Lena

The Wausaukee Ranger boys took on the Lena Wildcats last week and were able to survive the match by a three point victory margin 53-50.

That close match saw the Rangers holding the smallest of leads at the half, entering the locker room ahead on the board 29-28.

The second half differential was also very close with Wausaukee holding the two point edge 24-22.

Wausaukee's Peyton Betts had a great night lead his team to a win with 19 points. Corey Boesen followed up with 13 points while Dominick Brunette pitched in nine.

Lena was led by the evenings top scorer Max Beyer who piled up 26 points. Logan Shallow got nine on the night while Jacob Belongia added eight to the final tally.



Cougars Rocks Badgers in Blow Out Win

The Coleman Cougars left the Niagara Badgers shellshocked after their 92-19 win.

The enormous difference in scores began early as the Cougars fired off 48 points in the opening frame while stopping completely everything the Badgers could muster holding them to eight points.

The second half wasn't much better for the Badgers who managed to get 13 points to an additional 44 Cougar points.

Coleman had five scorers in double digits during the match. Simon Meadke led the way with 16 points. Tieg Sadowski followed up with 15 points while Logan Zeitler chipped in 14. Joseph Olsen added 11 while Cayden Bintz gave his Cougars 10.

Niagara was led by Charles Swanson with six points and Ty Colenso with five points.



Crivitz Scraps Up Win Over Laona/Wabeno

The Crivitz Wolverines took on the Laona/Wabeno Rebels Thursday night and handed the home court Rebels a 62-49 loss.

The Wolverines employed a fast hitting attack over the first half as they shot their way to a sizable 39-22 lead before the half.

The second wasn't much better for the Rebels who amassed 27 closing frame points.

Crivitz was led by Alec Grandaw and Eian Baumann who both posted 17 points each on the way to the win. Sean Christiansen posted 14 points.

The Rebels were led by Connor Taylor who posted the game high 21 points. Reed Christiansen added 10 to the tally while Matt Seeber got eight.



Crivitz Bags Blow Out Win Over Niagara

The Crivitz Wolverines handed the Niagara Badgers an 81-43 loss Tuesday night in Niagara.

The blow out win for the Wolverines was keyed in the first half where the Wolverines shot their way to a 39-17 lead.

That lead was whittled at by the Badgers in the second half but fell short on the 42-26 second half readout.

Crivitz was led by Alec Grandaw with 16 points and Eian Baumann with 14 points. Sean Christiansen and Seth Sellen both added nine points each.

Niagara was led by Aiden Colenso with nine points and Nick Kreuger with eight points.



Waupaca's Big First Half Too Much for Marinette

Waupaca shot 52% from the field on its way to a 82-58 win over Marinette on Thursday.

Waupaca took a 45-24 lead into the halftime break. Marinette was better offensively in the second half, scoring 34 points to Waupaca's 37, but couldn't close the gap.

Marinette shot 42% from the field, led by Asaia Polazzo's 21 points. Jake Sommerfeldt had 15 points and Keegan Polomis each had 11 points.

Polazzo had seven rebounds to lead Marinette and Polomis led the team with four assists.

Marinette was out-rebounded 36-21 on the day, with Waupaca grabbing 11 offensive rebounds.

Three Waupaca players scored in double figures.



Despite a Slow Start Peshtigo Pulls Away from Algoma

Playing a second game about 17 hours after their previous one finished, the Peshtigo Bulldogs showed a few signs of fatigue against Algoma on Saturday, but they shook that off quickly.

About six minutes in, Peshtigo called a timeout to regroup after a sluggish start, and from there, it was off to the races, with Peshtigo grabbing an ultimately comfortable 64-37 victory.

"It's a tough 24 hours for the guys. We've had a tough game in Oconto last night and then we have to turn around and do an afternoon game here, so it's expected to look a little sluggish or tired-looking when you come out of the gate," Peshtigo coach Jason Boucher said. "I think the first five, six minutes that was the case and then after that, we called a timeout, settled down and the kids really got after it and it showed."

The Bulldogs led 31-18 at the half and didn't let up defensively in the second half, allowing just 19 points while scoring 33.

"The defense was tremendous again today, we moved the basketball, everybody doing what they were supposed to be doing, and it's nice to finally win a game that wasn't on the last possession," Boucher said.

Peshtigo shot 24-for-59 (40%) from the field compared to 15-for-50 on the Algoma side. A telling number from the game was Peshtigo's 43-17 rebounding advantage, including 13 offensive rebounds to Algoma's two.

A decent amount of that credit goes to forward Collin Engman, who scored a team-high 12 points and ripped down 13 rebounds. He also added a fast-break dunk to punctuate his night.

What stood out to Boucher, however, was his patience and effectiveness in the paint.

"His offense is coming along," Boucher said. "I think he rushes it too much sometimes on offense. If he actually just takes his time, he's right underneath the hoop most of the time and he can get up in the air. He actually made a couple good post moves tonight and finished."

Engman shot 5-for-10 from the field, and was the only Bulldog in double figures. Mauz Salem scored nine, Christian Boyle and Landon Lemke chipped in eight apiece and Adam Bauman had seven. Mason Doberstein had seven, with a total of 11 Bulldogs scoring in the game.

"I think the strength of our team this year is our bench," Boucher said. "We've got 11, 12 guys that can come in and do what they're supposed to be doing. It's always nice to see everybody contribute."



Marines Tough Shooting Night Leads To a Big Win for Spartans

Marinette's tough season continued Tuesday with a 74-39 loss to Lux-Casco, as Marinette just couldn't get its offense churning once again.

Marinette shot 15-for-59 (25%) from the field, falling behind 40-20 by the half.

Only one Marine that took more than one shot connected on better than 37% for the night: Nate Poetzl had four points, making two of four shots.

Sam Sommerfeldt's nine points on three made 3-pointers led Marinette. Jake Sommerfeldt had seven points, but on 3-of-18 shooting.

Lux-Casco shot 45% as a team, with four players finishing in double figures.

Lux-Casco also out-rebounded Marinette by a 47-26 tally.
