Bulldogs Bopped

By Omro 39-29


In a defensive dominated post-season home clash Tuesday, the Bulldogs never held the upper hand in suffering a 39-29 setback. Finding driving lanes closed off by the helping Omro man defense, Peshtigo settled for outside or off-balanced shots throughout the contest.

Freshman Amanda Majewski topped Peshtigo with 9 points, Carly Dietrich added 6 while Shannen Ganter, Brittany Marquardt and Teja Tonn chipped in with 3 points each.

A layup by Ganter tied the score at 3-3 all in the early going before Omro worked the ball inside and used paint jumpers from 6’1 Tessa Zimmer and Taryn Bosquez to pry open an 8-4 edge. Overcoming four traveling calls, the Bulldogs did manage to regroup and used a layup by Dietrich along with a buzzer-beating bucket from Marquardt to trail 12-8 at the first break.

Peshtigo’s offense continued to struggle in period two as Omro raced to a 23-13 halftime lead. The Bulldogs didn’t get on the scoreboard until the 4:32 mark when Majewski dropped in a layup for a 19-10 deficit then used a baseline jumper by Amanda Emmes to cut the gap to 23-13 at halftime. After getting burned for easy layups against their fullcourt press, the Bulldogs switched to a 1-3-1 defense to slow down the Foxes in the frame.

A 3-point play by Cassie Borgardt extended the Omro lead to 26-13 (6:15) before the Bulldogs unleashed a 5-0 run. Dietrich buried a jumper, Majewski the back end of a two shot foul while Ryleigh Klaver connected for a 26-18 score.

As quickly as Klaver scored, Zimmer answered with a layup for a 28-18 spread. The final points of the third quarter came at the 1:44 mark on a three point shot from Majewski.

Buckets by Courtney VanDamme and Borgardt pushed the Omro lead to 32-21 (5:01) before Peshtigo mounted one last rally. Majewski canned a free throw then watched Marquardt add a 5-footer for a 32-24 score with 3:39 remaining.

Over the final 2:30 Peshtigo was whistled for 8 fouls as Omro made 4 of 10 free throws to seal the win. After going scoreless for nearly 3 minutes, Peshtigo got late baskets from Majewski (0:47) along with a trey from Tonn (0:31) for the final points.
