55 And Counting For Bulldogs

Extend Winning Streak By Whipping Wolverines 54-41; Wausaukee Remains Tied



Riding the one-two punch of seniors Jordan Berth and Zach Neumann, the Peshtigo Bulldogs extended their M-O Conference winning streak to 55 games with a 54-41 victory over Crivitz Friday night. Owning a 24-22 halftime lead, Peshtigo had its hands full with the upset-minded Wolverines before pulling away on the strength of a 30-19 second half charge. Berth and Neumann combined for 40 of the Bulldogs points, including 26 of their final 30.

“Crivitz is one of the better teams in the conference and they played one of their better games of the year,” Peshtigo coach Ryan Spaulding said. “We played a little better in the second half and gradually pulled away. In the first half we missed some open looks, before getting into a more consistent flow offensively.”

Elsewhere around the M-O hardwood courts, Wausaukee stayed perfect with a 55-10 trouncing of Gillett, Niagara held off a late Suring charge 53-49 and STAA clobbered Coleman 47-22.

The biggest news came in non-conference action where Lena snapped a 55-game losing skid with a 75-55 victory over visiting White Lake. The lopsided win was the first-ever for Lena coach Jeff Heimke.

Four M-O games will be played on Thursday, December 19 with Lena heading to Crivitz, Gillett traveling to STAA, Peshtigo taking the hike to Suring and Niagara visiting Wausaukee. Following the holiday break, league play will resume on Tuesday, January 7.



-Friday’s Results-

Berth, Neumann Key

54-41 Win Over Crivitz

With Berth and Neumann leading the way, the Bulldogs remain the team to beat in the M-O following a 54-41 home win over Crivitz. After a 10-10 first quarter deadlock, the Bulldogs outscored Crivitz 44-31 over the final three frames for their 55th straight league win.

The 6’4 Berth, reigning player of the year in the M-O, battered the Wolverines for a game high 23 points, 12 of those coming in the second half. Neumann, another senior standout, provided the outside threat with 17 points and four treys. Neumann was at his best in the fourth quarter with 11 points.

“Both Jordan and Zach played great games. Jordan did a nice job defensively on Fischer and was very effective on the offensive end. Zach hit some big shots for us with those threes,” Spaulding added. “Crivitz mixed up its defense throughout, but we did a better job adjusting to the switches in the second half. Plus we made our free throws down the stretch.”

Colton Lange paced Crivitz with 16 points, 7 in the fourth quarter, Ben Fischer added 11 and Jeremy Kralovetz 9. The talented Fischer was held scoreless in the first quarter while managing two points in the fourth period.

Berth got the Bulldogs rolling with 7 points in the first frame, including a trey, while Neumann dialed in from long range as well. Crivitz relied on the scoring of 6’3 junior Colton Lange for 7 points in the frame on a three point shot and 4 charity tosses.

Period two continued to be a trade off as the Bulldogs tallied a 14-12 scoring edge. Darius Dohl, AJ Woller and Berth netted two buckets each while Brendon Thomas canned a jumper. Finally shaking the shadow of Berth’s defensive dragnet, Fischer shook free for 6 points on 4 free throws and a bucket while Lange and Kerschaw Stumbris added two charity tosses each.

After a halftime chat with coach Spaulding, the Bulldogs made their move in the third quarter with a 13-6 surge. Berth fired in 8 points in the run, Neumann added his second trey of the game and sophomore Logan Noffke a bucket.

A late layup by Noffke along with a buzzer-beating three point play from Berth extended Peshtigo’s lead to 37-28 at the break.

Looking to protect the lead, Peshtigo put the ball into the hands of Neumann and Berth down the stretch. And they didn’t disappoint their mates. Neumann pumped in 11 points, including a pair of treys while Berth was perfect on 4 free throws to seal the 13 point win.

Lange tried keeping the Wolverines within striking distance with 7 points while Kralovetz added a three.

In the jayvee game, Tyler Marquardt netted 13 points to key a 54-27 Peshtigo win.

Rangers Roll

Past Gillett

Holding Gillett scoreless in the fourth quarter, the Wausaukee Rangers had no trouble chalking up their third straight league win 55-10.

That is no misprint as Wausaukee owned a 31-6 halftime lead before wrapping up the lopsided win with a 24-4 surge over the final 16 minutes.

Sharp shooting Zach Orlando paced a balanced Wausaukee scoring attack with 15 points, including a trio of threes, Aaron Schlies added 14 points, Eric Arndt 11 and James Kramer 9.

Jake Kaster topped Gillett with 4 points on a pair of free throws in the first quarter and a bucket in the third. Leeland Kahler, Eric Fischer and Dylan Roberts added 2 points each.

Powers, Cavaliers

Clobber Coleman

Kiefer Powers tossed in a game high 19 points to lead STAA to an easy 47-22 win over host Coleman. Powers did most of his scoring damage from long range with five 3’s, including a trio in the third frame.

Jameson Bardowski added 6 points, Mitch Harvey 5 while Mike Schmidt, Brennen Bardowski and Varann Vasant netted 4 points each.

The Cavvies grabbed a 7-5 edge at the first break then upped the margin to 18-13 by intermission. Period three is where STAA took control on the strength of a 17-5 blitzing. Powers ignited the run with his 3 shots from behind the arc while Brennen Bardowski added 4 points.

Taking a 35-18 spread into the fourth quarter, STAA closed the game out on a 12-4 run. Jameson Bardowski hit for a pair of buckets, Schmidt, Powers and Harvey one each while Levi Carlson drilled two free throws.

Niagara Holds Off

Late Suring Charge

For 53-48 Victory

Niagara broke away from a 20-20 halftime deadlock to knock off visiting Suring Friday night 53-48. The Badgers used a big spurt to pry open a 10 point lead in the third quarter, then survived some clutch three point shots from Creo VanBellinger to hold on for the win.

The Badgers owned a 40-33 lead after three periods before Suring cut the deficit to 5 points at the final buzzer. VanBellinger drilled a pair of threes in the final 2 minutes to get Suring within 51-48 only to see Walker swish a pair of free throws with :05 remaining to seal things.

“To start the second half we pressed fullcourt and created some easy scoring chances,” Niagara coach Jim Hoogland said. “Zach Walker had a cold shooting night but more balance scoring was the difference in the game.”

Walker and Adam Parent flipped in 15 points each for Niagara, Joey Swanson added 11 while Patrick Moreau and Jacob Oratch scored 6 each.

Niagara made 21 of 50 shots for a 42% clip, turned the ball over 12 times and held a 30-21 rebounding edge. Oratch snared 7 boards while Walker dished out 4 assists.

Suring was paced by floor leader Dillon Kempen with 19 points, 12 of those coming in the second half. VanBellinger added four 3’s for 12 points, John Horst 9 and southpaw Tyler Fisher 7 points, all in the second half.

Suring made 16 of 48 field goals (33%) and turned the ball over 15 times.



-Non League Results-

Lena Levels White Lake

To End Losing Skid; 1st

Win For Coach Heimke

It has “happy days” in Lena Friday night as the Wildcats put an end to a 55-game losing skid with a 77-55 whipping of visiting White Lake. Balanced scoring was the key for the young and upcoming Lena cagers as four players made their way into double figures to give coach Jeff Heimke his first varsity win.

Standing at just 5’7, sophomore Matt Marquardt found the mark for a game high 22 points on four 2-pointers and four-3’s. Freshman Hunter Borchert added 21 points and a perfect 10-10 free throws, freshman Dalton Anderson (5’1) 14 points while 6’3 sophomore Nash Haney added 10 points.

For the game, Lena made 11 two-point shots and 10 threes while finishing with a 68% free throw mark of 23-34.

With Marquardt netting 8 first period points on a pair of threes, Lena owned a slim 18-16 lead. The long range bombing Marquardt added 9 more points in the second frame while Anderson and Borchert chipped in with treys to spark Lena to a 39-28 halftime edge.

Borchert fired in a pair of treys in the third frame and 8 points while Marquardt connected once to give the Cats a 56-40 cushion heading into the fourth quarter.

And what a final 8 minutes it was as Lena capped the win with a 19-15 scoring edge. Anderson kept the White Lake defense honest with a pair of three pointers while Lena went 9-13 from the free throw stripe. Borchert canned all 6 of his throws and finished 8-8 in the second half.

Cameron Fredrick topped White Lake with 15 points, Angelo Barkon added 14 and Brian Greengrass 11.

Crivitz Takes Care

Of Florence 72-30

Outscoring host Florence in every quarter, including 41-17 in the second half, Crivitz cruised to a 72-30 win Monday night.

Ben Fischer led the way with a game high 19 points, Colton Lange added 15 while Cody Bates and Jacob Sawinski netted 10 points each.

Crivitz ran off a 12-5 opening surge then pushed the lead to 31-13 by intermission. The Wolverines extended the upper hand to 53-24 after three frames before closing the game out on a 19-6 spurt.

Walker Drops In

27 As Niagara

Tops Rebels

Zach Walker shook free for 27 points as Niagara rallied from a 35-32 halftime deficit to turn back host Laona-Wabeno 65-58. The Badgers regained the upper hand with a 21-9 third quarter run before the Rebels made things interesting down the stretch with a 14-12 spurt.

Joey Swanson and Adam Parent were the number two scorers for Niagara with 10 points each.

Austin Andrews connected for 19 points for Laona-Wabeno.

Lena Falls To

Stockbridge

Getting outscored in every quarter, the Lena Wildcats came out on the short end of a 51-35 loss to Stockbridge (1-4) Tuesday night. The Cats trailed 23-14 at halftime before watching Stockbridge pull away with a 28-21 second half surge.

Hunter Borchert topped Lena with 11 points and Nash Haney added 10.

Zach Woelfel netted 25 for Stockbridge.
