Badgers Claim Early Supremecy in M&O Play

Issue Date: December 6, 2017

Badgers Bury Eagles Under 30 Point Landsilde

The Niagara Badgers were an unstoppable force Friday night as they blasted through the Suring Eagles 57-27.

After the first half it was pretty obvious that the Badgers were the better team, one look at the score board would have filled the viewer in as it read out 23-9.

Niagara continued the onslaught over the second half outscoring the Eagles 34-18.

The Badgers had the evenings' top scorers as Cassie Gill and Ki'Eircidy Hannah both battled their way to 14 point read outs. Jasmine Racine bagged 10 to keep the Badgers way ahead.

The Suring scorers had a hard time finding the openings they needed and the score sheets showed that as normally high scoring Kylee Stelzer was held to nine points along with Wylee VanBellinger who was stopped at six.

Lena Drops Game To Niagara

The Lena Wildcats looked tough on Thursday night when they faced off against the visiting Niagara Badgers as they battled for a small first half deficit 29-23 but fell to the eventual landslide that was the second half as the Badgers went on to win 68-42.

Were it not for the efforts of two double digit scorers, the Wildcats may have found themselves on the wrong end of a blow out. Those two Wildcats were Ally Demmith and Makenna Portier. Portier led the charge with 11 points while Demmith chipped in 10 to the effort.

Brooke Peterson pitched in nine thanks to a three pointer and a double helping of short jumpers and free throws.

Niagara's winning effort was highlighted by Jasmine Racine 25 point game, enough for the night's top scorer honor. She sank four two point buckets, four three pointers, and made two of her eight free throws. Niagara's freshman Alyssa Ivey bagged 12 points on the night, she made two threes along the way.

Maddie West and Cassie gill both added on eight points each.

Peshtigo Blows Out Pioneers; Start 3-0

Thursday evening the Peshtigo Bulldogs played host to the Sevastopol Pioneers in a Packerland matchup. It didn't take long for the Bulldogs to exert their dominance, on their way to a 32-14 lead at halftime. Peshtigo's defense took over in the second half, only giving up six points, while scoring 40, and winning the contest 63-20.

The Bulldogs got off to a quick start as a basket down low from Emma Frederickson, followed by a Hannah Swanson triple gave them a 5-0 lead. Sevastopol's Courtney Tebo answered with a three of her own, but was followed by another 7-0 Peshtigo run. Frederickson and Swanson each added another basket and Shae Tonn recorded a steal and layup for a 12-3 lead.

After a technical foul was called on Peshtigo for a wrong number in the book, Sevastopol was able to cut the lead to 18-10, but Sidney Gullickson, Gabby Perry and Tonn all scored a basket to extend the lead to 24-10. Just before the halftime buzzer, Tonn recorded a layup and Perry added another hoop, pushing the lead to 32-12. The Pioneers made two free throws to put the halftime score at 32-14.

"I thought we played pretty good defense the whole game. Shae [Tonn] does a great job for us and she sees the floor so well that Sidney [Gullickson] got a couple of nice baskets because she hustled down and Shae saw her. Things like that will hopefully continue to pay off for us," said Peshtigo coach Bruce Parkovich.

The second half was all Peshtigo, almost literally. Defense was the name of the game as the Bulldogs held the Pioneers to just six total second-half points. Peshtigo began the half on a 16-0 run, when mercifully Sevastopol recorded their first basket at the 11:12 mark of the half. A 9-1 run put the finishing touches on a dominating performance by the Bulldogs, as they won 63-20.

Coach Parkovich knows starting 2-0 in conference is great, but now the grind starts, "This is good, but now our work is cut out for us. We have Southern Door on Tuesday, Menominee on Thursday and Sturgeon Bay back here on Friday. It was nice to see that all of the girls contributed because I haven't subbed a lot this year. It was a learning experience and they did a very nice job."

Shae Tonn led the way for the Bulldogs with 13 points, Gabby Perry added 10 points and Hannah Swanson also finished with 10 points. Sidney Gullickson and Emma Frederickson each chipped in eight points. The leading scorer for the Pioneers was Courtney Tebo with seven points.

Improved Cougars Ground Eagles

Last season was a trail of hard knocks for the Coleman Cougars girls basketball team, but this season could be different and Monday night that became apparent as the Cougars defeated the home court Suring Eagles 42-38.

Coleman used their possessions to their full advantage over the first half as they built a very respectable 21-10 point lead. That lead had much to do with the effort put forth by Cameron Compe who sank two three pointers over her first half. Haley Ziemar also had some success from behind the arc getting one over the first half.

Coleman kept consistent over the second getting another 21 points to match their open ing frame scoring. Coleman continued to find success with a third three pointer, along with a perfect second half showing at the line, four for four.

To close the game Suring definitely found their stride but it came too late as the 28-point second half performance proved to be too little too overtake the quick striking Cougars.

For the Cougars Compe led the way with 13 followed by Michaela Zeitler and Kailey Klimek with six points each.

"We played tough defense the first half contesting shots and creating turnovers," said Coleman head coach Glen Ziemer. "The second half I don't feel we came out of the locker room with the right attitude.  We were able to hang on for the win with some clutch free throws at the end of the game by Cameron Compe.

Suring's Kylee Stelzer led all scorers with 14 points while Wylee VanBellinger chipped in nine to the effort.

Crivitz Showcases Firepower In Lena

The Crivitz Wolverines traveled to Lena Friday evening and just made it over the double up mark on the home court Wildcats, 80-39.

The exemplary performance from the high powered Wolverines was highlighted by a huge game by last season's conference MVP Chloe Gruszynski. Over the first half Gruszynski was near unstoppable as she battled her way to 17 points. Of those buckets one was reigned in from behind the arc. But Gruszynski wasn't alone out there as her feisty teammate Sianna Guns shot her way to 12 first half points. And let's not forget about Lexi Oyer's opening performance. She put in two long rangers for six points. At the half the Wolverines pretty much had the game in hand 38-18.

Lena struggled to amass as many points as the Wolverines did in one half as leading scorer Brianna Sylvester was held to nine points. Demmith found little in the way of openings during the game but did a great job to battle out seven second half points.

Gruszynski walked away from Friday night's game with a game high of 25 points off eight two's, two trey's, and three free throws. She was followed by Guns with 23 points which she earned on nine in close buckets and five of her six free throws. Oyer's four three pointer night ended with her amassing 14 points.

Rangers Fend Off Hungry Cougars

The Wausaukee Rangers may have had their way last season when facing the Cougars of Coleman but that trend seems to have made a 180 degree turn as the Cougars gave the visiting Rangers a fight for their money Friday night, 72-63.

Sure nine points can be considered a large lead but when examining the scores of these two teams last season it is a night and day difference.

The Rangers ended the first half with a two point lead 32-30, going to show that the Cougars had no issues keeping pace. One of the reasons they did stay in the hunt so well was Cameron Compe. Her effort helped to solidify Coleman's stance going into the locker as she bagged nine first half points. Emily Dufek also did her part to open the game for the Cougars as she piled up seven points.

One of the biggest difference makers in this one was the amount of times the Rangers went to the line. Were it not for so many line visits the game may have turned out differently. Courtney Messar definitely took advantage of her trips to the charity line making all six of her shots. Natalie Schroeder also had plenty of opportunity thanks to some Coleman fouls as she bagged six points off of first half free throws.

But a big second half by Wausaukee's Madelyn Schlies would give the Rangers the push they needed to blow past the Cougars. Schlies went wild over the closing frame sinking six in close buckets and four free throws.

Madelyn Schlies led all scorers during the game with 22 points while teammate Kaelyn Schlies added 16 and Schroeder 13.

The Cougars were led by Compe with 15, Zietler with 12 and Dufek with 11.

Gillett Overcomes STAA

The Gillett Tigers took a 62-29 victory over the visiting St. Thomas Aquinas Cavaliers Monday night.

STAA was led by Alexa Pristelski with 13 points, Haley Baranek with 11 and Millie Benson with three.

The Tigers had the evenings' top performer in Taylor Yonker who amassed 11. Sydney Young got nine while Willow Pecha pitched in eight.

Rangers Wrangle Win Over Green Bay West

It was a tight victory for the Rangers last Thursday night as they traveled south to the big city of Green Bay for a match up with GB West. After two halves of play the Rangers sealed the deal on the tough win 54-51.

Though they came home with the "W", this game wasn't always in their hands. GB West started better than the visiting Rangers, going ahead at the half 31-23.

But a never say quit attitude by the Rangers helped to turn the game on its head over the second half as the Rangers struck often for they 31-20 second half differential.

Top scoring honors went to GB West's Jazzlyn Koeller who had 19 points on the night. She was followed by Kelis Cornelius with 10 and Keyshay Allen with eight.

Leading the Rangers was Madelyn Schlies with 14 points and Natalie Schroeder with 12.

Cardinals Dip Past Wolverines for Win

The Crandon Cardinals came to Crivitz Tuesday night for a non-conference match up with the home court Wolverines which saw the Cardinal slip by the Wolverines in late game push 46-42.

The first half was just as much of a battle as the second half as the teams entered the locker room knotted up 20-20.

Sianna Guns did all she could over the first half. Battling for rebounds she piled up eight first half points for the Wolverines.

Crandon proved to be slightly to much for the Wolverines as the second half saw them surpass the Wolverines by a 26-22 differential.

Ending the night as the games top performer was Chloe Gruszynski who gave her Wolverines 14 points. Guns added 12 while Lexi Oyer found success behind the arc for eight points.



Hornets Sting Bobcats

in Conference Opener

The Florence Bobcats battled with the Elcho Hornets Tuesday in a Northern Lakes Conference matchup. Elcho jumped out to a 34-16 halftime advantage, before cruising to a 64-39 victory over Florence.

For Florence, Jordyn Springer led the way with nine points, Alicia Gehlhoff and Kathleen Selden each scored seven, Haley Behrmann added five and Jenna Springer and Cassie Larson each finished with four.

Southern Door Hands Peshtigo First Conference Loss

Peshtigo dropped a 54-27 matchup to Southern Door on Tuesday evening, with the Eagles getting 19 points from senior Gabrielle Atkins.

The Bulldogs' leading scorer was senior Hannah Swanson, who made three shots from beyond the arc to finish with nine. She had six of the Bulldogs' 16 in the first half.

Things didn't get better for Peshtigo in the second half, as they were outscored 29-11 by Southern Door. Senior Madi Martin scored all five of her points in the second half, while junior Sidney Gullicksen added two of her seven and senior Shae Tonn made a free throw for her only point on the evening.

Senior Emma Frederickson scored all five of her points in the first half.

In addition to the 19 Southern Door got from Atkins, junior Grace LeGrave poured in 12, sophomore Kendra Dantoin scored eight and junior Tehya Bertrand had seven.
