Girls Basketball Teams Start Conference Play

Issue Date: December 2, 2020

Niagara defeats Wausaukee

The Niagara Badgers bagged their first win of the 2020 girls basketball season last Tuesday afternoon when they paid a visit to the Rangers for a 62-26 rout.

The bashing by the Badgers began early with a flurry of points tallied over the first half of play. After 44 points by the Badgers and just 14 by the Rangers over the first half the writing was on the wall for the home court Rangers.

Niagara's superlative first half was keyed by some furious scoring by their two leading shooters, Josie Rock and Alyssa Cretton. The two combined for 32 of the 44 first half points, with Cretton getting 17 of those and Rock the other 15. Rock's first half saw her hit home on a triple helping of three pointers. Bailey Pearson bagged a healthy nine first half points.

Wausaukee's first half scoring effort was led by Sparrow Luccarius who shot her way to seven first half points. Rachel Schlies followed up with four.

After the flurry of the first half the teams equaled out and played a pretty even matched competitive second half where the Rangers posted 12 points to the Badgers 18 point closing effort. 

Cretton was the nights top performer with 23 points and a three of six showing at the line. Rock added up 20 points while making two of her three free throws. Pearson followed up the double digit scorers with her 11 points.

Wausaukee's Schlies and Luccarini both ended the night with seven points added up each.



Coleman Has Strong Opening Over Seymour

The Coleman Cougars opened their 2020 girls basketball season on a high note last Tuesday when they shot their way to a solid 43-31 victory over the hosting Seymour Thunder girls.

Coleman took good initiative after the opening tip, firing their way to a nice 24-11 lead at the half. This song opening effort was highlighted by Hailey Ziemer and Cameron Compe who combined for 14 of the 24 opening frame points. They both shot for seven apiece. 

Seymour just couldn't get anything going over the opening minutes as the Cougar defense shutdown any effort to get to the hoop.

By games end Seymour's Adrianna Vola posted a team leading 11 points.

Coleman's Hailey Ziemer took top scoring honors on the night with her 14 points which included a three pointer and three out of four free throw points. Compe finished with 11 points, hitting two of her four from the line while also making one three pointer. Cameron Zeitler also added on six points while Aubrey Bintz and Michaela Zeitler both posted five points.. Maddy Hoida chipped in two on the night.



Gillett Narrowly Survives Seymour

The Gillett Tigers faced off with the Seymour Thunder Saturday afternoon in Seymour. After two halves of play the Tigers had narrowly escaped with the win as they Thunder fought back in the second to narrow the margin to within three 54-51.

That second half saw the Thunder shutdown the fast hitting Tiger shooter who pounced early for a 33-23 lead before the first buzzer.

Seymour was able to string together a 28 point effort over the second frame all holding the Tigers to 21 points, luckily for the Tigers that comeback fell just short of the lead.

Gillett was led by the efforts of Aubrey DeBauch who fired off for 19 points and the nights top scoring honors. She hit seven of her 12 free throw shots on the night. Karissa Schaal and Ryann Wagner both fired in 10 points each while Macy Franti helped out with eight points.



hawano Hands Gillett First Loss of the Season

The Gillett Tigers after taking a nice win Saturday over Seymour were handed a non conference loss by the Shawano Hawks 59-43 in Shawano.

The long road week of games must have taken a slight toll on the Tigers as the early season hiccup saw them trail 26-18 over the first half and falling short in the tally during the second half 33-25.

Gillett's Aubrey DeBauch piled up 12 points in the effort while Macy Franti got nine. Carliegh Kaczmarek and Alaina Herzog both finished the evening with eight points each.



Suring Opens Basketball Season With Win

The Suring Eagles found their way to a nice 54-31 win over the visiting Lena Wildcats Tuesday afternoon to open their 2020 basketball season.

The Eagles wasted no time in getting things done on the court as they fired off for a 30-10 first half lead.

The second half was much more stable as the two teams battled their way to a 24-21 second half tally in favor of the Eagles.

Lena's Natalie McNurlen and Suring's Paige Kruger shared the evenings top scoring honors with 12 points each for their respective teams.

Suring's Kate Mahoney posted 11 points while Kylee Stelzer added on nine points. 

Lena's Kennedy Marquardt and Chaela Rabas both pitched in five points each to the Wildcat effort.



Marinette Takes Loss to FVL in Season Opener

The Marinette Marines posted their first game of the season in the books but unfortunately for them it comes with a loss. Tuesday night that loss came at the hands of FVL who fired off for a 53-30 final verdict.

Marinette was unable to keep up with FVL who took a decisive lead in the first half 28-10, behind a pretty well balanced attack. FVL pretty much got every starter involved in the first half effort as the scoring sheet showed a very well balanced attack. Emily Jaenke took the iniative with nine first half points.

Marinette saw a spark from one starter in the second half as Samantha Pieper shot her way to 12 points which helped Marinette to a 20 point second half tally, short of the 28 additional points FVL tailed.

Jaenke took top scoring honors on the night with 14 points and was followed by teammates Riley Pink and Alayna Feidt who both posted eight points each.

Marinette was led by Pieper who ended the night with 13 points. Hannah Chenier got five points while Ali Kacalo and Matti Renikow posted four points each.



Coleman Scraps Up Win Over Niagara

The Coleman Cougar girls basketball team came away with the win in Tuesday nights match with the hosting Niagara Badgers 58-45.

Though Coleman came away with the win, the game was not in their hands early on as the Badgers played a strong first half for a 25-21 lead.

Coleman played a stronger second half though, outscoring the Badgers 37-20. That great second half was keyed by great efforts from Aubrey Bintz and Hailey Zimmer who combined for 20 points. Bintz posted nine second half points while Ziemer got 11.

Niagara had the evenings top scorer in Josie Rock who fired in 15 points. Alyssa Cretton posted 13 points while Bailey Pearson got nine on the night.

Coleman was led by Zimmer with 13 points and Bintz with 10. Sydney List and Cameron Compe both posted nine points each.



Gillett Defeats STAA

The Gillett Tigers defeated the St. Thomas Aquinas Cavalier girls last Tuesday night in Marinette 59-23

The Tigers got ahead in the opening minutes and never looked back as the first half saw the Gillett girls create a big lead 25-9.

That lead only got worse for STAA as the second half scoring saw them fall further behind in a 34-14 second half rout.

STAA was led by Addie Pristelski with 12 points and Livia Benson with nine. Katie Knox posted two on the night.

At the beginning of the game Karissa Schaal needed only seven points to hit the 1,000 point landmark. She did so during the game joining the list of Gillett greats who have accomplished the task before her.

Karissa Schaal took top scoring honors for the Tigers with 17 points. Carliegh Kaczmarek got 10 points while Lizzy Soper and Alaina Herzog both added on six points each.



Lena Gets Conference Win Over Wausaukee

The Lena Wildcats pounced on the Wausaukee Rangers Tuesday night in Lena, defeating the Rangers by way of a close 37-35 final readout.

The game was tight from start to finish with neither team ever really gaining a distinct edge over the other.

Lena held the lead at the half, but just narrowly, entering the locker room with the 16-13 edge.

The second half's differential was just as close as the Rangers fell short of the Wildcats in the 22-21 final frame differential.

Wausaukee's Schroeder took top scoring honors on the night for the Rangers with 11 points. Luccarini got 10 points while Rachel Schlies finished with seven.

Lena was led by Chaela Rabas with 10 points and Kennedy Marquardt with eight points. Natalie McNurlen added on six points.



Peshtigo Takes Season Opening Loss to Bonduel

The Peshtigo Bulldog girls were handed a hard fought loss by the home court Bonduel Bears Tuesday night, falling behind a 53-37 final readout.

Were it not for a slow start for the Bulldogs, things may have been different. Bonduel quickly exploited any weakness they say in the defense for a 24-7 first half lead.

Peshtigo played a much better second half where they outscored the Bear 30-29.

"We knew going over there that they were going to be a good team," said Peshtigo Head Coach Bruce Parkovich. "They were 22-2 last year with no seniors. We had a little jitters which led to a slow start. We were behind 13-0 before we hit our first bucket. I do give the girls credit because they came back out of the locker and played a great second half. Our shooting definitely saw an improvement over the game."

Peshtigo had the games top scorer in Sydney Lund with 14 points. Emma Gilligan posted nine points whilie Jaci Tonn got seven points.

Bonduel was led by Robaidek and Troxel who both posted 13 points each.
