Crivitz Keeps One Game Lead; Marinette Upset by Lux-Casco

Issue Date: February 7, 2018

Second Half Defense

Powers Crivitz Past STAA


Crivitz maintained control of the M&O Conference with a 85-58 win over St. Thomas Aquinas Academy on Tuesday, starting the game on a 14-2 run and holding off a couple of STAA runs to get the win.

After the 14-2 start, STAA pulled things back to within eight before three buckets from Crivitz, including two triples from Shane Bauer, brought the game back to 16 with three minutes left in the half.

The Cavaliers cut the lead to 11 at the half. Travis Giese, who finished with 20 points on the night, said Coach Jeff Bauman made sure things got cleaned up in the second half.

"Coach came in and said we needed to start playing defense," Giese said. "We came out a little slow at the end of the first half and Coach was not the happiest at halftime, but we responded well in the second half."

The Wolverines came out of the half firing, as the lead stretched to 16 with 11:45 to go and ballooned to 24 over the next three minutes, a cushion they would not relinquish.

Part of the reason the Wolverines were able to run away with things on the scoreboard was that they ran more on the court.

"Coach tries to get us to come out and run at the start of every game," Giese said. "We didn't do that the first couple of games but we've been doing it our last ten now. We start to pull the game away in the second half and tire teams out. We just keep running."

Beyond Giese's 20, Bauer had 14, Jaden Werner had 10 and Jakob Voss got nine. STAA was once again led by Jack Farley, Tyler Stuart and Christian Hornick, who had 17, 16 and 15, respectively.



Marines Fall in Shocker

to Luxemburg-Casco


A nine-game winning streak came to an end for the Marinette Marines on Monday, Feb. 5, as they were upset by the Luxemburg-Casco Spartans 65-63.

The Marines previously went on the road to defeat the Spartans 73-49 on Jan. 4, but Monday's game was a completely different night. The Spartans took the lead in the final minute on a three point basket by Dylan Hansen to go up 64-62. The two teams traded free throws in the final 10 seconds to make the score 65-63. Marinette missed a three point attempt as time expired.

Luxemburg-Casco, now 3-11 in conference play, came out firing, attempting 34 three-pointers and making 10. Nathan Coisman led the Spartans with 19 points on 9-11 shooting, while Ryan Robillard had 12 and both Anthony Otradovec and Josh Zeitler put in 10.

Matt Wagner had 29 points for the Marines. Jordan Wendt finished with 14 and Walker Stroming got 10. Tyler Fayta and Trey Bretl each got five.

The loss drops the Marines into second place in the North Eastern Conference, a game behind Wrighstown.



Suring Staves off

Stuart and Farley for Win


The Suring Eagles bagged a 58-45 victory over the St. Thomas Aquinas Cavaliers Thursday evening in During.

For the Cavaliers it was just about a two man show when it came to the scoring. minus Christian Hornick's two points Farley and Stuart amassed all the rest as Farley led all scorers with 22 points while Stuart sunk four threes on his way to his 21 point readout.

Behind a solid start from Ryan Mahoney, Caleb Lally and Mitch Stegeman the Eagles built a 26-21 halftime lead.

Gillett was led by lows with 11 points and Ben Frank with 10.

Cougar Scoring Frenzy

Leaves Lena Reeling


The Lena Wildcats didn't know what hit them Thursday night on their home court. The Coleman Cougars did though, they got hit by a meteoric scoring push the likes of which the Wildcats had yet to see this season, winning the contest 75-29.

Over the first half the Cougars slashed and cut their way up court for a whopping 37 point readout. Cole Woulf fired in 14 first half points while Aaron Fraser added seven.

Goodman-Pembine

Slips Past Florence


Goodman-Pembine defeated the Florence Bobcats 61-57 on Thursday, Feb. 1 behind 22 points from Wyatt Marcy.

The game was one of the biggest of the year for the Patriots, who had been talking about the game all week.

"We talked all week about the importance of this game and I was a little worried about putting too much pressure on my team," Patriots Coach John Swick said. "At the same time, it was really time for us to step up and just play our game. Tonight, we really did that. I thought we succeeded in all facets of our game plan."

Marcy led three Patriots in double figures, as he was joined by Hagan Braaten with 13 points and 11 rebounds and Evan Metras with 10 points. Caleb Nelson added nine points and grabbed nine boards.

Despite the close win, the Patriots were in control early, taking a 37-23 lead into the half.

"I liked the way we again controlled the tempo and forced some turnovers that led to runouts to help build a lead," Swick said. "We jumped into an early lead and did enough tto hold on and get a big win for our program."



Marinette Rallies

Past Waupaca


After trailing at halftime, Marinette stormed back in the second half to beat Waupaca 69-53 on Saturday, Feb. 3.

The Marines were down 30-24 at the half, but came back with a 45-point second half. Matt Wagner got 23 points, while Walker Stroming had 11 and Trey Bretl chipped in nine.

The Marines held Waupaca to 17-50 shooting, and didn't allow any one player to beat them. 11 players scored for the hosts, but only one, Brandon Wanty, was able to get into double figures, as he finished with 12. Hunter Marcom added eight on 4-14 shooting and Alex Klemp had seven.



Southern Door Pulls

Away From Peshtigo

in Second Half


The Peshtigo Bulldogs fell behind early and were never able to crawl back against the Southern Door Eagles on Monday, falling 66-47.

The Bulldogs trailed 28-16 at the half, with Southern Door displaying efficient offense, shooting 46 percent (24-52) from the field with only three turnovers in the game. Southern Door fought off an early second half rally that saw the Bulldogs cut the Eagles lead to two. But some tight defense slowed the Bulldog scoring and the Eagles slowly pulled away from Peshtigo.

"They've kind of got all the pieces," Bulldogs Coach Nate Motkowski said. "They have some outside shooters and some really big bodies inside so it's hard to take away anything from them at all because they have second and third options ready to go."

Leading the offensive charge for Southern Door was Kyle Daoust, who shot 7-13 from the field and 7-10 from the free throw line, finishing with 21 points.

Ryan Claflin had 14 and both Samuel Gerend and Derik LeCaptain had 11 as the Eagles beat the Bulldogs for the second time this year. The teams last met on Dec. 15, when the Eagles left Peshtigo with a 73-57 victory.

"They wanted it more. They had better energy and they were a little bit more aggressive on rebounding and that made the difference," Motkowski said, as the Eagles grabbed 30 rebounds to the Bulldogs' 24, one of the first times all season Peshtigo was out-rebounded.

Cameron Noffke and Mitchell VanVooren each had finished with 13 points for Peshtigo. Noffke finished 5-8 on the night and VanVooren was 6-12. Despite the loss, Motkowski was able to pick out some positives from the team, and said he still thinks they can make a run in the playoffs.

"Southern Door is a good team and that's a quality loss for us. I think our guys are still getting better every week. I still think we can end the season strong and be ready for a nice run in the playoffs," Motkowski said. "I thought Cameron did a nice job scoring inside. I was happy with our guys off the bench that stepped in and gained a little more confidence."

Crandon Shutdown

Goodman-Pembine

The Crandon Cardinals secured an 84-61 win over the Goodman-Pembine Patriots Tuesday night.

"We got off to a slow start by turning the ball over early and missing our shots," said Patriots Head Coach John Swick. "Once we settled in, we started to come back and cut it to a two possession lead before they made a nice run to end the half.

Swick continued, "In the second half we made some runs on them but we just couldn't get the stops we needed on defense. I was really pleased with many aspects of our play tonight against a very good team. I think we are hitting our stride at the right time. Hagan Braaten came up big for us tonight and that is something he has been waiting to happen for awhile. I'm really proud of him and he continues to carry us on the boards."

The Patriots were led by Hagan Braaten with 26 points and 12 rebounds. Elisha Heat who had 9 points and Wyatt Marcy who added 8 points.



Coleman Slams

Gillett With Loss


The Coleman Cougars took a big 78-45 victory over the visiting Gillett Tigers Tuesday night.

Austin Marquardt had a big night for the Cougars as he fought his way to a 20 point readout. He sunk 3 three pointers over the course of competition. Cole Woulf led all scorers with 24 Cougar points and Cayden Bintz posted 12.

Cole Long led the way for the Tigers with 20 points while Ben Frank posted nine.





Suring Repels

Ranger Invasion


The Suring Eagles who hosted the Wausaukee Rangers Tuesday night were fast to strike and made the rangers pay dearly as they need the night with a win 56-31.

Wausaukee Struggled to get things going over the first half as the work load was carried by two. Gruszynski hit on three behind the arc shots while Matthew Delfosse plugged out six more points for the Rangers first half readout of 15 points.

Suring on the other hand was able to fire in 33 points to open the game and Ryan Mahoney had much to do with it. He went wild for 17 first half points while Mitch Stegeman fired in eight points, helping to bring the Eagles to a 33-15 halftime lead.

Mahoney kept the score coming over the second half with another 12 points. Mahoney took top scoring honors with 29 points. Stegeman got 10 on the night while Caleb Lally added six.

Gruszynski led the way for the rangers with 11 points while Delfosse and Christian Shigouri both chipped in six.
