Wolverines Off to Nice Start; Win Two in Early Season Play

Issue Date: November 27, 2019

Crivitz Shakes Some Rust off Against Laona/Wabeno

The Crivitz Wolverines are seeing their early season basketball action begin to heat up. Last Monday night the girls in blue and gold had their hands full with defensively minded Laona/Wabeno. After the defensive struggle the Wolverines put up a 49-45 victory.

"We are a little rusty at this point of the season," said Crivitz head coach Brett Myers. "There were times when we played well tonight and then there were times the girls looked exhausted. We have to work on conditioning."

Starting the game the Wolverines slapped out the games opening jump and took control.

After a Rebel foul Wolverine Chloe Gruszynski shot two free throw, both of which hit home for the 2-0 lead.

A short while later Gruszynski tossed a long pass down court to Emalee Johnsen who drove home the layup.

The dynamic duo repeated the play a few possessions later for the 6-0 lead.

The Rebels posted their first points of the match off two free throws as well as Grace Krawze gave her team two points.

Crivitz continued to scoreSand put together a nice string as Gruszynski hit a layup followed by Johnsen with a two point bucket.

At the 11 minute mark of the first half Sianna Guns got into the mix with a two pointer that brough the Wolverine lead to 12-4.

With nine minutes left until intermission Gruszynski passed another long ball to Guns who slipped into the lane for the 16-6 lead.

Before the Rebels were able to gain composure and close the gap the Wolverines increased the lead.

After Kate Richlen's mid range jumper the Wolverines led 20-7 with four minutes left till the first buzzer.

With 13 points separating the Wolverines from the Rebels one might have expected the game to begin to run away but that wasn't the case. The rebels started drawing fouls and working their way back up.

It began with a free throw from Hailia Babich and was followed by a recovery off the second free throw which the Rebels capitalized on for the 20-12 deficit.

The final score of the half came off the hands of McKenna Sellen who was successful on both her free throw attempts giving the Wolverines the 26-18 first half lead.

A good lead that should have been plenty to cruise to victory over the second half. But a quick recovering Laona/Wabeno squad slowly closed the gap over the second half.

"We are just not in mid season condition yet and when we get tired we make mistakes," said Meyers. "We'll address these issues but I am happy with the effort. A wins a win. there were times we had ten point leads but we just let them back in."

The Wolverines started the half's scoring with a Morgan VanLanen bucket which was assisted by Johnsen.

The Rebels closed the lead to ten points after Trista Weiss bucket which brought the scoreboard readout to 28-20.

At the eight minute mark of the second half things started to get interesting as the Rebels strung together a series of buckets. First was two free throws by Kylie Higgins which was followed by a basket by Emma Harris. Which brought the games score to 35-31 in favor of the Wolverines.

The Wolverines pushed the lead back up to ten with an Johnsen bucket at the three minute mark for the 44-34 lead.

The Rebels last score was rung in by Harris with six seconds left to play. After running out the final seconds the Wolverines were victorious 49-45.

"Believe or not we are a young team," said Meyers. "Our fifth starter is a returning starter now but she was out two ACL injuries over the last four years. I bring two sophomores and a junior off the bench that are getting better. I got to have these players. I see glimmers of hope with many of these young players. But I thought we did play well."

Leading the Wolverines in scoring was Emalee Johnsen and Sianna Guns who both posted 13 point evenings. Gruszynski got eight while Bailey Bemis, McKenna Sellen and Morgan VanLanen all posted four each.

The Rebels' Emma Harris added up 13 points while Kylie Higgins got 12.

Crivitz gets Early Season Win Over Florence

In a non-conferee early season showdown the Crivitz Wolverines got a 59-50 victory over the Florence Bobcats.

The Wolverines went absolutely wild in the scoring columns over the first half as they built a lead at intermission of 36-19.

During that first half of play Wolverine Chloe Gruszynski hit a three pointer along with her four two point buckets for a 13 point margin. Emalee Johnsen also did her part to start the action posting 10 points. Riley Mueller added a three point in the first frame.

But Florence wasn't ready to call it quits just yet as they fired in 31 second half points, thankfully for the Wolverines their scoring machine was able to keep them at bay with 23 second half points.

Gruszynski carried the bulk of the scoring over the second posting 13 points.

Taking top scoring honors was Wolverine Chloe Gruszynski with 24 points. Johnsen added up 12 while Morgan VanLanen posted six.

Peshtigo Tops Marinette in Early Season Action

The game was tight the whole way through with the Bulldogs creating the space they needed on the scoreboard during the second half.

Over the second half the Bulldogs saw three of their starts really light up as Lund continued her success with eight more points. Grace Wickman had a superlative second half, hitting two three pointers on her way to a 12 point second half readout.

Wausaukee Looks Tough

in Win Over Algoma

The Wausaukee Ranger girls had a great showing Thursday night at home against the Algoma Wolves who they defeated 40-29.

"Weekend of deer season, is the worst for playing ball," said Wausaukee Head coach Dave Messar. "Its a win and well take it."

The defense strength of Wausaukee was shown to the fans Thursday night as the Wausaukee girls let little get by them. After one half of play they held a distinct edge 20-10.

"Our defense is what we live for, said Messar. "All our kids have bought into this ideal and I can say that it is working."

Those 20 first half points were shared quite evenly between the starters as Madelyn Schlies got six, Rachel Schlies five, Steph Murray with four and Kaelyn Schlies two. Allison Versaskas added four to the first half total. An evenly disappeared attack which the Wolves scrambled to try to cover.

"We have a lot of experience on this team, " said Messar. "But there are always nerves when getting back. These are close knit kids that hang out together a lot, they just never giver up on any play. These are just a great group of kids."

The Wolves did however figure things out a bit over the second half as the upped their half tally to 19, nine points better than their first half effort.

But Wausaukee kept consistent and scored another 20 points which was plenty to cruise to the win.

Over the second half M. Schlies posted another eight points while Murray got four and K. Schlies three. Versaskas also chipped in three second half points.

At games end M. Schlies had secured top scoring honors for the Rangers with 14 points. Murray got eight while R. Schlies got seven on the night. Versaskas ended with six points while K. Schlies got five.

Algoma was led by E. Kirchman with 12 points and E. Wallace with six.

"We are a man to man team," said Messar. "Last year we gave up around 32 points a game which to me says this team is good. I challenged them today to step up against this higher division team and they did it. As far as out conference matches this season I expect it to be tough"
