3 Teams Remain Unbeaten

Crivitz Takes 3-0 Readout To Peshtigo (2-0) Friday; Rangers Knock Off STAA And Coleman

After three weeks of action on the M-O Conference hardwood courts, three teams remain unbeaten. After knocking off Gillett and Niagara behind a pair of big offensive performances from senior Ben Fischer, the Crivitz Wolverines lead the 9-team circuit with a 3-0 readout. Fischer netted 21 points in a 56-44 victory over Gillett then added 27 more in a 65-58 win over Niagara Monday.

The Wolverines (4-0, 3-0) will put their unbeaten mark on the line Friday night with a trip to three-time defending conference champion Peshtigo (4-0, 2-0). All the Bulldogs have done this past week was bop Bonduel in a non-league affair then level Lena Monday 86-24 for their 54th straight conference win.

Wausaukee (4-0, 2-0) is the third team sitting with a perfect record as the Rangers rolled to wins over STAA 59-43 and Coleman 74-40.

Other M-O clashes set for Friday, December 13 find STAA visiting Coleman, Wausaukee heading to Gillett and Suring taking the hike to Niagara.

Away From STAA




Running off a 20-5 fourth quarter spurt, the Rangers knocked off visiting STAA 59-43 Wausaukee held a 28-25 halftime spread and 39-38 after three frames before pulling away.

"I told the team before the game that some of our younger guys were going to have to come in and give us some minutes," said Rangers head coach John Ranallo. "Quentin (Ranallo) came in and gave some big minutes, so did Eric (Arndt). Conner Kempinski also did a good job for us. He can handle the ball and I expect him to help us out down the road."

The decisive fourth quarter saw the Rangers get 8 points from Aaron Schlies along with 4 each from Conner Kempinski, Zach Orlando and James Kramer.

After STAA knotted the score at 41-all on a 3 pointer by Kiefer Powers, Wausaukee went on a 10-0 surge as Schlies shook free for 4 buckets.

"I told the kids to hang in there. These are the kinds of games we want to be playing," Ranallo said. "We want to be playing these high-intensity games. I thought they worked for it tonight. It wasn't smooth but they got it done."

Kramer finished with a game high 16 points for Wausaukee, 7 coming in the opening quarter, Schlies 16 including 8 in the second frame, Orlando 15 and Beau DeLaet 8.
