Neumann, Peshtigo Prevail In Showdown

What was billed as a showdown of league powers turned into an early season thriller as the Peshtigo Bulldogs extended their M-O Conference winning streak to 40 straight games with a 45-44 come-from-behind win over visiting Suring Thursday.

The two-time defending champion Bulldogs didn’t secure the win until junior guard Zack Neumann drilled a three point shot with :04 left for the narrow victory.

In a battle of unbeaten teams and with the conference lead at stake, Neumann’s game winning heroics rallied the Bulldogs to the top spot in the M-O standings at 4-0 and 7-0 overall.

Meanwhile Suring (4-1) fell a half game back and will have to wait until January 31 to get another shot at Peshtigo.

Elsewhere around the 9-team circuit, Crivitz moved to 3-2 with an 82-38 rout of Lena, Niagara upended Wausaukee 58-50 while Gillett used some excellent “post play” to turn back STAA 61-49.

A full round of league games will be played prior to the Christmas break on Friday, December 21 as Peshtigo heads to Wausaukee, Suring entertains Lena, Gillett travels to Coleman and Niagara visits STAA.

Following the holidays, games will resume on Thursday, January 3.

-Thursday’s Results-

Neumann Nails Game

Winner as Peshtigo

Slips Past Suring


The Bulldogs had their share of troubles throughout, owning the upper hand just three times at 8-7, 42-41 and 45-44. That final score was the most important as Peshtigo remained perfect in league play.

“This was a great atmosphere to play in with a full gym, which was exciting for the kids and to get out of here with a win was especially nice. Suring controlled the game throughout as we struggled to handle their pressure and get into our offense. At the end, Zach and Jordan Berth made some huge plays that eventually got us the win,” coach Spaulding said.

Leading the way for Peshtigo were a pair of talented juniors in Berth and Neumann. Doing most of his damage in the paint area, the 6’3 Berth fired in 21 points, collected 6 rebounds and registered 3 steals. Neumann was just as impressive with 10 points and 6 rebounds. Neumann’s most important shot came in the final moments, nailing a dramatic three pointer with 4 seconds remaining.

“The play was set up for either Zach or Jordan, but there was some confusion. Zach recognized that, made the most of the situation and bottom line ended up making a play,” Spaulding said. “Jordan played well throughout and put the team on his shoulders. As the game went on, he had a big edge inside.”

Matt Borkovec added 5 points before fouling out with 2:59 remaining and AJ Woller chipped in with 4 points and two boards.

Peshtigo hit on 16-37 shots (43%), 4-12 on threes and 9-14 free throws.

Topping the Suring scoring chart was reigning player of the year, Jay Tienor with 17 points. Dan Sweda tallied 8 points, Cody Christensen 7 and Blake Strehlow 6 points.

Suring finished with a 47% shooting mark (15-32), but saw 16 turnovers ruin a chance at victory. Their last turnover followed Neumann’s game winner, as the inbounds pass sailed out of bounds giving the ball back to the Bulldogs.

“Our plan was to get a throw to halfcourt then call timeout. It didn’t end up that way as the ball went out of bounds untouched, which went back to Peshtigo on the end line,” Suring coach Gary Regal said. “Overall, I was pleased with the effort from the kids. We matched up well when Peshtigo played man, but struggled against their 1-3-1 defense...were too patient and didn’t attack at all. The game itself was not well played with a number of turnovers and missed shots.”

A couple of baskets by Tienor along with a trey from Sweda gave Suring a 7-4 lead (5:59) before the Bulldogs stormed back. Neumann scored on a tip-in then added a short jumper to put Peshtigo up for the first time at 8-7 with 4:52 left in the opening frame. Cody Christensen followed with a 5-footer and Strehlow a trey sparking the Eagles to a 13-11 edge at the first break.

Suring continued to hold the upper hand in period two at 13-10, extending the lead to 26-21 by intermission. After Woller knotted the score at 13-all with a jumper, Tienor stepped outside and drilled a three pointer then added a 12-footer for an 18-15 spread (4:46).

Woller canned two free throws only to see the 5’8 Sweda come up big with another trey to give the Eagles a 22-17 advantage (3:46). Berth worked his way for a paint jumper and a 22-19 score before Tienor and Strehlow hit shots to give the Eagles a 26-21 halftime lead.

Tienor kept up his scoring antics to open the third quarter, hitting a trey and giving the visiting Eagles their biggest lead of the game 29-21 at the 6:32 mark.

Back to back buckets by Berth and Dakota Keller closed the gap to 29-26 before Tienor found the mark for another trey and a 32-26 score. A three point play by Berth enabled the Bulldogs to get within 33-30 (2:04) only to see Suring work the clock and set up Creo VanBellinger for a quarter ending trey and a 36-30 edge.

Trying to stay within striking distance, the Bulldogs got a big lift to open the final frame as Borkovec drilled a three point shot (7:16) and Levi Sanborn two free throws to close the gap to 36-35 with 6:22 left.

The elusive Tienor worked his way clear for a jumper before Berth and the Bulldogs knotted the score at 39-all. Berth hit two free throws at the 5:37 mark and followed with 5-footer for the deadlock.

Working time off the clock, Sweda connected on a pair of charity tosses to put Suring in front 41-39 while Berth hit the back end of a two shot foul (41-40). Getting the ball back and eying the lead, Peshtigo went back inside to Berth, who responded with a layup for a 42-41 score (1:24).

Suring regained the lead just 19 seconds later as Christensen scored on a 4-footer then saw Sweda make one free throw with 17 ticks left for a 44-42 edge.

It didn’t look good for Peshtigo, until Neumann came to the rescue. With the clock winding down, the 6’2 junior veered to the right wing, got into his shooting rhythm and launched the three pointer. The shot found nothing but net as Peshtigo went up 45-44 with only :04 left.

Still enough time for Suring, but they couldn’t convert. The Eagles threw away the inbounds pass, fouled Sanborn and eventually saw the missed free throw end the clash of league powers.

With the game on the line, Berth stepped up big time for the Bulldogs, accounting for 7 of their final 10 points with Neumann tossing in the other three.

“Gary and I talked after the game how playing each other six times a year would make both teams better. Believe me, we were fortunate to win, but we must continue to take one game at a time because we know Suring will be waiting for us to stumble,” Spaulding commented.

Even though his team lost, Suring boss Regal expressed similar feelings... “this was a tough loss for our kids, especially after leading for most of the game, but they are resilient and will bounce back. This was a lot of fun with the environment as the game lived up to expectations.”

In the jayvee game, Brendon Thomas scored 16 points to lead Peshtigo to a 40-18 win.

Crivitz Too Much

For Wildcats 82-38


Putting together their biggest offensive output of the season, the Wolverines started early and never let up in cruising to an 82-38 win over Lena.

A total of 8 Crivitz cagers made their way into the scorebook, highlighted by a 25 point performance from Colton Lange. The Wolverine guard enjoyed a huge performance with 11 buckets and 3-4 free throws. Lange fired in 12 points in the second quarter and added 6 in the third.

Dominic Basso added 18 points, including a pair of treys, Ben Fischer 15 points, Micah Sessler 7 and AJ Garcia 6.

With Lange netting 5 points, Garcia and Fischer 4 each, Crivitz busted out to a 16-10 first quarter lead. That was just a warm up for coach Jeff Baumann’s cagers.

Lange continued his scoring binge in period two, leveling the Lena defense for 12 points on 5 buckets and two free throws. Fischer added 5 points, including a trey, as Crivitz unloaded a 29-11 surge.

Leading 45-21 at the half, the Wolverines came out red hot in the third frame with a 19-5 surge to put the game away. Basso busted loose for 7 points and Lange chipped in with 6 as Crivitz extended the margin to 64-26.

Justin Heimke topped Lena with 15 points, 7 coming in the fourth quarter, Roy O’Harrow 7 while Matt Marquardt and Joe Jagiello netted 6 points each.

Niagara Nudges

Wausaukee 58-50


Continuing to play some excellent team basketball, Niagara upended visiting Wausaukee 58-50. The Badgers combined fullcourt pressure with a balanced scoring punch to kayo the Rangers.

Joey Swanson paced Niagara with 14 points and 4 steals, Zach Zychowski 13 points, Zach Walker 11 points, Jordan Zawada 8 points and 11 rebounds while Colin Anderson chipped in with 6 points.

“Our fullcourt pressure limited Wausaukee to 29% shooting from the floor and we had great balanced scoring. We showed outstanding character because Wausaukee cut the lead to one point with 3:30 to play and we outscored them 12-5,” Niagara coach Jim Hoogland said.

Leading scorer for Wausaukee was Beau DeLaet with 12 points, Ryan Nystrom 11, Zach Orlando and Aaron Schlies 7 points each.

Niagara connected on 26 of 52 shots (50%) and held a 31-27 rebounding edge.

The Badgers made their biggest move in the second quarter, running off a 17-9 spurt to pry open a 27-16 lead. Zychowski keyed the uprising with 9 points, including a trey.

After a halftime chat with first year coach John Ranallo, the Rangers came storming back in the third frame 16-9 to close within 36-32. Nystrom canned a pair of buckets and two free throws while Austin Guarniere and Schlies chipped in with 4 points each.

Trying to protect that slim lead, Niagara sealed the win with a 22-18 edge over the final 8 minutes. Swanson took over the scoring load with 10 points while Walker and Zawada netted 4 points each.

Orlando and Cole Lewandowski drilled three point shots for Wausaukee, which made 11 of 12 free throws in the frame.

Wausaukee finished with a 13-45 shooting mark.

In the jayvee game, Niagara claimed a 49-31 victory.

Big Men Dominate

As Gillett Knocks

Off Cavvies 61-49


The inside duo of Clint Long and Shane Anderson, both standing at 6’4, combined for 44 points as Gillett powered past visiting STAA 61-49. Continuing to find open spaces in the paint, Long keyed the Tigers with a game high 25 points while Anderson added 19.

Gillett grabbed a 27-18 halftime spread as Long busted loose for 12 points before pulling away with a 34-31 second half charge. Anderson scored 8 points in the opening quarter and 6 in the third frame. Kyle Kershek kept Gillett in front with 8 points in the fourth quarter.

Kiefer Powers netted 23 points for STAA, 14 in the second half while Jameson Bardowski scored 13.

By Stephenson


In a Saturday night clash, host Stephenson unloaded a 41 point first half barrage on its way to a 78-62 win over STAA.

The Eagles soared to a 21-6 first quarter lead and upped the spread to 25 points by intermission.

Forced to play catch up ball, the Cavaliers ran off a 46-37 second half surge only to come up short.

Kiefer Powers paced STAA with 26 points, 15 coming in the third quarter, while Jameson Bardowski added 13.

Travis Wangerin topped Stephenson with 25 points, Kyle Raboin added 14 and Casey Wilson 9.

Lena Leveled By

Crandon 76-34


Northern Lakes leading Crandon ran off a 44 point first half outburst on its way to a lopsided 76-34 win over host Monday. The Cardinals enjoyed a 56-27 cushion after three frames before running off a 20-7 edge.

Brett Novak paced Crandon with 24 points, Kory Kincaid added 19 and Adam Flannery 15.

Justin Heimke and Roy O’Harrow were the lone Lena cagers in double figures with 14 and 12 points.

Sweda Fires In 22 Points

As Suring Tops Bonduel


Connecting six times from behind the arc, Dan Sweda scored 22 points to lead Suring to a 56-41 win over Bonduel on Tuesday.

The 5’8 Sweda found the range on a pair of threes in the first quarter, one in the third and three more in a decisive fourth quarter to key the win.

Jay Tienor added 14 points while Blake Strehlow and Cody Christensen chipped in with 9 points each.

Suring was up 22-19 at the half only to see Bonduel rally to take a 37-35 lead into the fourth quarter. Down the stretch the Eagles and Sweda erupted for a 21-4 spurt to win going away. Following the 9 point burst by Sweda in the final frame were Tienor and Christensen with 5 points each.

Logan Artis netted 14 points for Bonduel, including four 3’s while Jacob DeBauch added 10.

Bonduel won the jayvee game 35-31.

Niagara Falls To

Laona-Wabeno


Turning the ball over 28 times proved costly for the Badgers in dropping a 77-49 clash to visiting Laona-Wabeno Tuesday. Niagara trailed 42-32 at intermission before getting outscored 35-17 over the final two frames.

“Turnovers played a huge role in the loss. Our defense just was not as good as it has been..seemed a step slow all night,” Badger boss Jim Hoogland said.

Joey Swanson and Zach Zychowski netted 11 points each, Jordan Zawada 10 points and Colin Anderson 9.

Niagara made 21 of 52 shots (40%) and held a 30-25 rebounding edge with Anderson and Zawada collecting 6 boards each.

The Rebels were sparked by a 25 point performance from southpaw shooting senior guard Logan Chrisman, including 9 in the first quarter and 7 each in the second and third frames. Zach Reeves added 19 points to the winner’s attack and Austin Andrew 13.

Laona-Wabeno finished with a 27-49 shooting mark (55%) and turned the ball over just 8 times.

Wausaukee Routs

Elcho Hornets 70-53


With three players totaling 15 points or more, Wausaukee rolled to a 70-53 road win over Elcho Tuesday. The Rangers owned a 36-30 halftime edge before closing out the win with a 34-23 second half surge.
