Bulldogs Pick Up Four Wins, Stay Undefeated

Issue Date: April 27, 2022

Area Softball

Bulldogs Make

Quick Work of

Blazers in the Cold

Peshtigo made quick work of NEW Lutheran in the snow and cold on Tuesday, winning 15-0 in three innings.

Bethany Ahrens struck out eight of the nine hitters she faced. The only other hitter reached on an error and was caught stealing shortly after.

"I get tired, but when I get back in the dugout, I put my jacket on and I keep my hands warm so I stay good for the next inning," Ahrens said about pitching through the weather.

The snow and cold weather didn't affect Ahrens, and it didn't affect the Peshtigo hitters. Every one of Peshtigo's first 11 hitters reached base and scored, with eight walks in the first nine hitters. Emma Gilligan had two of the non-walks, as she reached on an error and had a two-RBI single late in the inning.

Ahrens went 2-2 at the plate in the game with a triple, two runs, and two RBIs.

Sam LaCoursiere scored twice on two walks and Allison Peters scored three times after reaching on an error, walk, and fielder's choice. Gilligan was 1-2 with a walk, three runs, and two RBIs.

"The girls did their job. It's tough to play games like this. We're not here to run scores up, we've just got to play our game, and the girls did a good job. It is what it is," Peshtigo coach Matt LaCoursiere said.



Bulldogs Sweep Double

Header with Eagles

Peshtigo won a pair against Southern Door on Thursday, one by a 7-1 score and a second game by a 3-2 tally.

In game one, Peshtigo trailed 1-0 after two innings, with Chloe Lustila doubling and scoring off Peshtigo ace Bethany Ahrens early. That would be the only run Ahrens allowed, but the Bulldogs didn't pull a run across until the seventh inning, when they scored seven.

In fact, Southern Door had a perfect game going before the seventh inning outburst by Peshtigo.

Allison Peters led off the inning with a single. After a fielder's choice by Emma Gilligan, Ahrens and Akira Smalls both walked. Sam LaCoursiere singled home the go-ahead run. Following a strikeout, Sydney Lund and Tori Jandt both walked to set the table for Rylie Ellie and Peters.

Ellie and Peters singled home two apiece in back-to-back plate appearances to blow the game open and Ahrens slammed the door in the seventh.

Ahrens finished with 13 strikeouts, allowing one run on one hit and two walks.

Peters was 2-4 with two RBIs, LaCoursiere was 1-3 with the go-ahead RBI and a run, and Ellie had two RBIs and a run.

In game two, Southern Door again took an early lead, with two hits in the bottom of the first giving the Eagles a 2-1 advantage, as Peters doubled and scored in the Bulldog half of the inning.

Peshtigo scored two in the fourth to take a lead, with Sam Kodric and Sydney Lund reaching and scoring.

That would be all the help Peters would need in the circle, as she allowed two runs (both unearned) in five innings of work. She struck out six and allowed just one hit and two walks.

Lund was 1-2 with a run and an RBI and Peters was 1-2 with a run and a double.

"Allison Peters was tough on the mound in her first start of the season," Peshtigo coach Matt LaCoursiere said. "Even though the score didn't show it, the bats were starting to come around again. Our defense was solid, ending the game in a crisp 1-6-3 double play."



Crivitz Drops Match

With NEW Lutheran

A seven-run fifth inning propelled NEW Lutheran to a 10-7 win over Crivitz on Friday.

The Wolverines started off on the right foot with five runs over the first three innings, but NEW scored seven runs in the fifth to take a 9-6 lead.

Crivitz got one back in the sixth, but the Wolverines were held scoreless in the fifth and seventh.

At the plate, Crivitz got two hits each from Nilea Guns and Cilena Guns. Cilena Guns scored one run and added an RBI. Nilea Guns had one RBI.

Raegan Nelsen was 1-5 with two runs scored.

NEW hitters walked 14 times in the game to four hits.



Coleman's DenRuyter

No-Hits Crivitz

in Shut Out

Coleman's Courtney DenRuyter no-hit Crivitz in a 16-0, three-inning game on Monday.

DenRuyter allowed one walk and struck out eight batters. At the plate, she also batted leadoff and scored two runs.

Ava Podoski, Christina Ermis, and Annabelle Markiewicz scored two runs apiece. Cameron Zeitler scored three on a 1-1, two-RBI, two-walk day.

Markiewicz was 1-2 with four RBIs on the day.



Oconto Blanks

Gibraltar 25-0

Oconto scored 22 runs in the second inning to wallop Gibraltar on Monday, 25-0.

Playing on the road, the Blue Devils were held scoreless in the first inning, but they were as hot as possible in the second inning.

The Blue Devils had 15 hits, eight walks, were hit by five pitches, and took advantage of four errors by the Gibraltar defense.

Among numerous great statlines on the Oconto side, Hannah Thomson was 4-4 with four runs scored and three RBIs, Lauren McDowell was 1-3 with a run scored and four RBIs, Addisyn Viestenz was 2-2 with four runs, three RBIs, and a walk, and Alyse Viestenz was 2-3 with three runs scored and two RBIs.

Juliana Sieber went 2-5 with three RBIs and two runs scored and Maggie Sohrweide went 2-3 with three runs, three RBIs, and two walks.

Kadynn Bostwick scored twice, McKenna Seidl was 1-2 with three runs and a walk, and Savannah Brill was 1-2 with three runs and two walks.

Annika Schleuter pitched a no-hitter for Oconto. She walked one hitter and struck out four.



Rangers Rout

Wolverines

Wausaukee put up 18 runs in a big win over Crivitz on Thursday night.

Rachel Schlies had a huge day at the plate, going 4-5 with three runs and four RBIs. Natalie Grutza also put up a big statline from the leadoff spot in the order, going 3-5 with three runs and four RBIs. Melody Schaal went 4-4 with one run scored and three RBIs.

Emma Forst was 1-4 with one run and two RBIs, Beth Schaal scored twice, and Amber Caylor was 2-3 with two runs.

Schlies started in the circle. She worked around 14 walks to limit the Wolverines' damage to just six runs (five earned), as Crivitz batters got only three hits to complement their walks.

Isabelle Danielczak started at pitcher for Crivitz and allowed 10 runs (nine earned). She took the loss.

For the Crivitz offense, Maddy Welt went 2-2 with three runs scored and two RBIs. Lexi Franzmeier scored twice on a 1-1 day. She walked three times.



Wolverines Shut Out

Crivitz ran away from Goodman-Pembine for an 11-0 win on Saturday.

Eight different Wolverines had at least one hit in the game and all nine players in the lineup scored at least one run.

At the plate, Krystal Moddie had two of the Patriots' six hits.



Niagara Takes Win

Abby Wells pitched a gem and had three hits to lead Niagara to an 8-3 win over Florence on Friday.

Wells threw seven innings, allowing three earned runs on five hits and seven walks, striking out 15. At the plate, she was 3-4 with two runs and one RBI.

Aiva Champeau, hitting in the two-hole behind Wells, was 4-4 with a run and two RBIs.

Lillian Loukus, Emma Broullire, Josie Learned, Rachel Walker, and Mallory Sanicki each scored runs for the Badgers.

For Florence, Isabella Millan was 2-3 with two runs scored. Paige Uren and Vicki Peterson each had RBIs and Peterson scored a run.

The two teams were scoreless through two innings before Niagara scored twice in the third inning, four in the fourth, and two in the fifth.



Kristoff's Seven RBI's

Propel Gillett/Suring

Past Lena/STAA

A seven-RBI game by Emma Kristoff rallied Gillett/Suring past Lena/Saint Thomas Aquinas Academy on Thursday.

Kristof went 3-5 at the plate, scoring one run and driving in seven more. Hitting out of the three-hole, she walked once as well.

Her team trailed off the bat, as Lena/STAA took a 5-0 lead in the top of the first. After a scoreless bottom of the first by the Hornets, Lena/STAA made it 11-0 in the second and looked to be cruising.

G/S got four back in the second and three in the third, but two more by Lena/STAA in the third meant it was still 13-6. Lena/STAA scored one in the fourth, leaving the door open for a six-run fourth by the Hornets to pull within a run.

After a scoreless Lena/STAA fifth, G/S took its first lead with two in the bottom half. Both teams went scoreless in the sixth. Lena/STAA tied the game at 15 in the seventh, but the Hornets walked it off in their half of the frame.

G/S Cleanup hitter Madison Vandevelde was 3-4 with two RBIs and two walks.

Hornet hitters walked 18 times in the game. Autumn Dryja walked five times by herself. In her one other plate appearance, she singled. She scored two runs and had two RBIs.

Bailey Stuart was 1-3 with three runs scored and three walks. Morgan Dryja scored three times as well.

On the other end, Lena/STAA hitters walked 15 times. Each of the final four hitters in the lineup walked at least twice, setting up the top of the order.

Hayward was 3-3 with four runs scored, two RBIs, and two walks. Kosloski was 1-2 with one run, three RBIs, and three walks, and Rabas was 2-5 with a run and two RBIs.

Kushner was 0-4, but she scored three runs and added an RBI.

Autumn Dryja was the winning pitcher. Kristof started the game in the circle and allowed 11 runs (nine earned) in two innings, and Dryja locked it down with five innings of four-run ball. Two were earned. She allowed four hits and six walks, striking out eight.

Ruechel took the loss on the other end. She struck out 10 but walked 18 and allowed nine hits. Eleven of her 16 runs were earned.



Marinette Overcomes

Waupaca in 5-2 Win

The Marinette Marine softball team took a 5-2 win over the hosting Waupaca girls Thursday evening.

Marinette took the lead early getting three runs in the second inning before the Waupaca girls narrowed the lead to 3-2 after two runs in the fifth.

Marinette tacked on one run in the fifth and one final run in the seventh to claim victory.

Wynn Erdman pitched a full game allowing no walks and two unearned runs while striking out 10 in her seven innings.



Peshtigo Keeps

Early Season Win

Streak Alive With

Win Over Sevastopol

Another scoreless pitching performance from Bethany Ahrens and an error-free defensive night helped Peshtigo beat Sevastopol 6-0 on Monday night.

Ahrens struck out 12 hitters in her seven innings. Three hits and two walks were all the Sevastopol offense could muster, and Ahrens spread out those five baserunners over five different innings.

"Another stellar outing by Ahrens in the circle," Peshtigo coach Matt LaCoursiere said.

Sydney Lund was 2-3 with a double and a triple, scoring once and posting two RBIs. Emma Gilligan was 2-4 with a run scored, and Akira Smalls went 1-2 with a run and an RBI. Sam Kodric scored twice off two walks as well.
