Peshtigo Takes Down Marinette in Season Opener

Issue Date: December 5, 2019

Peshtigo Establishes Tri-City Dominance Over Marinette

The Peshtigo Bulldogs faced off against the MArinette Marines Tuesday night, defeating the cross town rivals in a big way 78-51.

"There were a lot of nerves coming into this match up," said Peshtigo Head Coach Nate Motkowski. "But thats to be expected with the first game of the year. We only returned two guys from last year with varsity experience. We knew it was going to be a little crazy at the start. After a couple minutes they took a breath and relaxed and got back to doing what we needed to do."

The dominant victory was keyed in with an amazing second half for the Bulldogs. Thats not to say they didn't play good ball over the first half.

During the opening frame the Bulldogs fired their way to 36 points while holding Marinette to 28 points.

But where the Bulldogs really distinguished themselves was over the second half where they out shot the Marinette boys for 42 points while holding the Marines to just 23.

"We tried to focus on moving the ball with passing," said Motkowski. "We didn't want to put the ball on the ground too much tonight and we didn't. I think some of the younger guys got a little nervous and spent too much time dribbling the ball."

The evenings top performer was Marinette's Asia Polazzo who hit for 25 Bulldog points. Matthew Maye chipped in five to the effort while Dylan Poquette added two.

Peshtigo was led by Tanner Marquardt with 15 points and Cade Tackier with 11. Muzak Salem pitched in six points to the effort.

"Cade is going to catch a lot of eyes this season," said Motkowski."He had their best defender on humanoid i was proud of how the overcame the define and got some of the otters guys into the game. Everybody scored tonight except for two guys. He had a ton of rebounds too."

"I though early on we weren't making shot and Peshtigo made a bit of a run," said Marinette Matt Joost. "Offensively I think we did much better than this past weekend. We only had 10 turnover all night. There were jus too many other things we didn't do well. They figured out our press early as well. We just didn't have any defense over the second half. But there were a lot of positives to this loss."



Oconto Takes Win Over Crivitz To Open Season

The Oconto Blue Devils took a hard fought win over a tough and ready Crivitz Wolverine squad as the home court Blue Devils came away with the win 65-59.

The close battle saw The Blue Devils take a solid eight point lead at the half, 30-22. The Oconto boys were able to keep that scoring gap in place for the rest of the match.

At the line for the evening the Blue Devils shot for 21 of their 31 free throws while the Wolverines made seven of their 14. A difference maker that spelled defeat for the Wolverines.

Josh Woller led the Blue Devils and took top scoring honors with 24 points. Teammate Caleb Moe added on 14 points while Luke Krueger got 12. Will Sherman and Preston Wusterbarth both added up six points each.

Marinette Takes Loss to The Prairie School

The Marinette Marine boys basketball team saw themselves fall to a very tough Prairie School 85-62 Saturday afternoon in Wind Point.

Marinette had a tough night keeping pace with the Prairie boys as they fired in 44 point to Marinette's 26 over the first half.

Much of what made the Prairie boys so tough was their starters Nesbit and Fallico who were both able to amass 22 points each for 44 of the Prairie 85 total.

They also had a more tough shooters as their Hunter made 16 along with L. Shannon and Williams both got nine points.

Though Marinette fell they did have the evenings top scorer in Asia Polazzo who lead all scorers with 29 points for Marinette. Sommerfeld added eight points while Maye finished the evening with six along with Poquette who also got six.



Niagara Drops One to Florence to Open Season

Niagara had no answer to the attack theBobcats threw at them as the Bobcats blew the game wide open over the first half with 42 points while holding the Badgers to just 12.

St. Thomas Gets Season Going With Win

The Eagles also saw Reed Garcia post 21 points.
