Crivitz Holds Slim M&O Lead Over Wausaukee/Oneida

Issue Date: February 7, 2019

Crivitz Takes Down STAA for Home Win

A tired St. Thomas Aquinas Academy squad and a streaking Crivitz Wolverines team were a combination for a 61-46 Wolverine win Saturday.

Crivitz started out ahead 12-7, but they turned on the jets for a 10-point run from the 14:21 mark in the first half to stretch the lead to 22-7.

Leading 26-9, however, STAA showed some signs of hanging around. They scored 14 points over the final eight minutes of the half, with Halle Beranek and Alexa Pristelski each scoring points in bulk to keep the game at 37-23 heading into the break.

Beranek finished with 19 points and Pristelski had 18, though they dumped in points in different ways. Beranek made 11 free throws and Prsitalski made five 3-pointers.

"Alexa is a really good shooter but we had a whole week of being forced not to practice and that hurt her a little bit early on," STAA coach Mark Simon said. "Once she started heating up, that's her. She's a great 3-point shooter. This is her senior year, she kind of knows that she needs to finish strong and she's doing it. She's showing good leadership."

A comeback was never in the cards for STAA, however, with tired legs from the night before. STAA has just five players on the roster. With limited numbers, they have to play zone defense, and rebounding has been a struggle on the year.

"We just continue to work on it. My college coach was Tom Izzo. We worked relentlessly every day on offensive rebounding, maybe that's something I can do better in practice, but we do have to get better on the defensive boards and take care of the ball a little bit better," Simon said. "But you've got to remember that these girls played last night, every minute and tonight every minute, so fatigue enters into that too."

By the half, Chloe Gruszynski had 14 points. She pulled back in the second half, making just one shot, but it was enough for Simon to give some high praise for her game and the team.

"I love coming here to Crivitz. The coach is first class, they have what I think could possibly be the player of the year in the conference in Chloe [Gruszynski], the girls showed great sportsmanship, the fans showed great sportsmanship," Simon said. "It was a privilege to play in that game today and it can't always feel that way, but our girls played hard against a great team who I think could be conference champions. Our girls didn't quit. I've got five girls and they are warriors and I'm proud of them."

Crivitz got a balanced scoring effort, with eight players scoring. Emalee Johnson scored 14 and Sianna Guns had 9. The Wolverines didn't start the season off hot, but they've come together recently and it shows.

"We've got a team that finally is playing as a team. The first month of the season, they had to figure each other out. We lost a bunch of seniors that were good basketball players," Crivitz coach Brett Meyers said. "The first month of the season we lost all three of our games in the first three weeks or something like that. Now they know each other and now they know what they're able to do and now they're playing better. We've had a good stretch here so far."

Florence Annihilates White Lake

The Florence Bobcats posted one heck of a game the other day and their opponents the White Lake girl are still wondering what happened as the Bobcats won 59-5.

Kathleen Selden posted 11 points for the Bobcats while Madison Neuens got 10. Cassie Larson also posted 10 points.

Algoma Posts Win Over Oconto

The Algoma girls gave the home court Oconto Blue Devils a 51-44 loss Friday night.

The game was knotted up for most of the way as the Blue Devils held the edge going into the locker room 25-23. Unfortunately for Oconto a 28 point effort by the Wolves over the second overshadowed their 19 point effort.

Algoma's Hanna Wiese led all scorers with 19 points. Makayla Gulette got 13.

Oconto was led by Mara Allen with 17 points and Hannah Moe with 12 points.

Gillett Defeats Suring

The Gillett Tiger girls took a solid 67-49 win over the hosting Suring Eagles Friday night.

Gillett led at the half with a 38-31 differential which Gillett held on to over the second half for the win.

During the first frame Gillett's Aubrey DeBauch and Karissa Schaal combined for 23 first half points.

DeBuach led all scorers with 19 points while Schaal followed up with 18. Sydney Young posted 10 points.

Kylee Stelzer and Wylee VanBellinger led the way for the Eagles with 13 points each.

Crivitz Outdoes Niagara

The Crivitz Wolverines secured another important win Friday affronts as they put down the Badgers of Niagara by way of a 66-40 final verdict.

Crivitz led after the first half of play 35-22 and outscored the Badgers over the second frame 31-18.

Emalee Johnsen led all scorers for the night with 17 points and was followed by teammate Chloe Gruszynski with 12 points. Bailey Bemis got 11 while Sianna Guns chipped in 10.

Jessica Oratch got 12 for the Badgers while Jaden Payette and Cassandra Gill both posted nine points each.

Oneida Posts Win Over Lena

The Oneida Nation Thunderhawks took the show in Lena Friday night when they defeated the Wildcats 79-40.

The game was highlighted by an exemplary performance from Oneida's M'Kenzey Ackeley who went wild for 27 total points on the night, three of those buckets came from behind the arc.

She was followed on the Oneida stat sheets by teammate Jacobs who got 14 and Rodriguez with 11.

Lena was led by Portier with 18 points and Maddy Herald with six.

Niagara Gets Win Over Florence

The Niagara Badgers have needed a win to help pull themselves out of a bit of a losing slump and last Monday they got it, defeating the Florence Bobcats 45-37.

Leading the Bobcats was Kathleen Selden with 16 points and Cassie Larson with 10.

Niagara was led by Jaida Maki with 14 points and Jasmine Racine with 11. Jessica Oratch posted 10 points.

Bonduel Snubs Crivitz Momentuem

The Crivitz Wolverine girls have been building up momentum going into the final stretch of the season, but last Tuesday they experienced a little hiccup in that momentum as they fell to the Bonduel Bears 65-62.

Crivitz had to battle back after the first half left them behind the lead 27-24.

Unfortunately they were unable to overcome the Bears who took the three point victory.

Bonduel's Kyle Guenther led all scorers with 23 points while teammate Kara Troxel posted 13 points.

The Wolverines were led by the efforts of Chloe Gruszynski who posted 21 points on the night. Morgan VanLanen posted 14 while Sianna Guns got 11. Bailey Bemis finished the night with 10m points.

Cougars Pull Away From Cavaliers in Second Half

Coleman defeated St. Thomas Aquinas Academy 62-39 on Friday.

The Cougars finished the first half with a nine-point lead and compounded the lead in the second half to pull away with a 23-point win.

Mackenzie Champagne scored 13, Hailey Ziemer had 10 and four players had 8: Cameron Compe, Michaela Zeitler, Kailey Klimek and Maria Nowak.

Hallie Beranek dumped in a game-high 17 to lead the Cavaliers, including 10 in the first half. Alexa Pristelski scored 9 and Olivia Benson had 8.

Maroons Loose Tight Game To Braves 50-49

The Menominee Maroons hung with the Gladstone Braves throughout Friday's game, but the Maroons fell 50-49.

The Maroons made 11 3-pointers in the ballgame, but they could have used one more, as they fell by just a point.

Erin Barrette and Makenzie Wellner each scored 10 points to lead the way for Menominee. Gladstone got 22 from Megan Crow.

Peshtigo Falls to Algoma on the Road

Peshtigo fell 52-35 to Algoma on Tuesday night.

The Bulldogs were beaten by Sierra Nessinger for 12 points in the first half as they fell behind 30-20 going into the break. Nessigner would finish with 16 points and Makayla Guilette had 17.

Peshtigo got 12 from Lianna Baxter, 8 from Allison Dudka and 6 from Sidney Gullicksen.

Bulldogs Win Defensive Battle With Clippers

Talk about a defensive ballgame.

Only five Sturgeon Bay Clippers managed to score in a 33-23 loss to the Peshtigo Bulldogs, and none scored more than 7 points.

The Bulldogs led 13-12 at the half as they also struggled to find the bottom of the bucket against the Sturgeon Bay zone.

"Zone always bothers us," Peshtigo coach Bruce Parkovich said. "We're not good shooters and a lot of them just feel "that's not my shot.' I thought maybe as the year goes on, we'd get some girls that wouldn't be afraid to shoot outside, but it's just something that we're used to trying to get the ball to Lianna [Baxter] and our second thought is shooting outside, so sometimes we're going to have to reverse that if we're going to be successful the rest of the year."

Peshtigo came out of the half in as much of a groove as any team would be in during the game, scoring eight straight points to build the lead up to 21-12 with 13:30 remaining in the game.

"I just told the girls I think we can run a bit more," Parkovich said, mentioning Grace Wickman getting out on the break as a positive. "It helped to have some other girls do some scoring and take the pressure off Lianna."

Lianna Baxter and the Bulldogs turned it on a bit in the second half, but stout defense still led them to the win.

They allowed only four points in the final nine minutes, including about five minutes of no opponent scoring.

Baxter scored 13 points in the game, the only double-digit tally in the game. Allison Dudka added 6 points and Grace Wickman got 5. Both scored all their points in the second half.

Last time the teams faced one another, Baxter scored 30 points.

"That's why they were on her really good," Parkovich said.

Baxter wasn't the only player slowed down on Friday night. The Clippers' Sarah Bridenhagen scored 24 points last time the teams played. This time, she scored seven.

Peshtigo went 8-for-22 from the free throw line and Sturgeon Bay went 2-for-11.
