Blue Devils Rally Past Bulldogs; Stay Undefeated

Area Girls Basketball

Cougars Clip Maroons

in Overtime 56-52


In a game that goes to overtime at 49-49 and ends 56-52, free throws can make a huge difference. That was just the case Monday, as the Coleman Cougars made 17 free throws to Menominee's four, coming away with the win.

Aubrey Bintz in particular was strong from the free throw line. She made 11 of her 14 free throws and finished with 20 points.

In overtime, she made four free throws. The first two made the game 52-49 in overtime, and the second two came with 17.2 seconds left and Coleman up two.

She made one free throw, but missed the back end of the double bonus. She was the first one to her own rebound, and was fouled, where she would go to the line to make it a two-possession game.

"She's pretty battle-tested," Coleman coach Todd Olsen said. "It's her third year on varsity now, so nothing's really phasing her right now. She's accustomed to being a starter. In situations like this, it's nice to have the ball in her hands."

It was actually Menominee that came out playing better basketball, as they led 25-18 at halftime following just a three-point second quarter.

"First half, we were slow and soft, and we settled. Second half, we had a nice little talk in the locker room, and we picked up the intensity, obviously," Olsen said. "They dug deep. A great team win, I'll tell you that, because from top to bottom, that was great."

While free throws helped Coleman late, the line was not so kind to Menominee. Coleman made 17 free throws, but the Maroons were 4-for-11 shooting from the charity stripe.

"We got into some foul trouble, and free throws were really the tell-tale sign tonight. In our own gym, we were 4-of-11," Menominee coach Lucas Chouinard said. "When you're not able to cash in on those opportunities, they had 29 opportunities, that's the difference in a tight ball game, and unfortunately, we were on the wrong end of that tonight."

Regardless of the outcome, he was happy with the effort from his team.

"I'm very pleased with their effort tonight," he said. "That's something we've been struggling with in games of the past. The last two games now, we played with great effort defensively, which is going to give us a shot in any game."

Anna Nerat led Menominee with 22 points, 15 of which came in the first half. Rylee Doyle and Anna Axtell scored nine each, and Makayla Sinks had 10.

Desiree Nowak scored 16 for Coleman, while Cameron Zeitler scored six.



Blue Devils Rally Past

Bulldogs in Second Half


The Oconto Blue Devils aren't too used to playing from behind, but they responded perfectly to some adversity against Peshtigo on Tuesday to get a 54-41 win.

Peshtigo came out firing, taking a 17-4 lead by the time the clock said 10 minutes left in the first half.

After an Oconto timeout with 9:48 to go, Peshtigo kept things going, scoring the first points on a Sydney Lund bucket to stretch the lead to 19-4.

After a Peshtigo timeout with 7:17 until halftime, Oconto finally started to chip into the lead.

Lianna Baxter got a 3-point play to make it 19-7, then scored again to cut the lead to 19-9. After a Lund basket, Baxter scored twice more, with a banked 3-pointer eventually making it 21-15 with 3:13 until halftime.

A Baxter free throw cut the lead to 24-20, but Peshtigo gave itself some distance just before halftime with a buzzer-beating triple by Jaci Tonn.

Oconto was a completely different team in the second half. Oconto first took the lead at 36-35 on two free throws by Alyse Viestenz, and they didn't look back, bursting out to a 46-35 lead. The Blue Devils wouldn't let Peshtigo back within single digits from there, and would hold the Bulldogs to just 12 points in the entire half.

"We talked about it. Our leaders, they know. I usually don't have to say too much. We went in, we discussed what we weren't doing well, and we made it a goal to come out and fix it," Oconto coach Nick Thomson said. "They controlled the tempo in the first half, and we weren't as clean as we'd like to be on the defensive side. We don't usually give up 29 points in a half. We average about 32 in a game, so it was something that we challenged the girls with, because we take pride in our defense, because that creates our offense."

Peshtigo coach Bruce Parkovich said his team was getting a bit tired late in the game, something you can't do against a team with the length, size, and pressing ability of the Blue Devils.

"We just don't jump as high when we're tired, and they seem to get a number of second shots on us, especially the second half," Parkovich said. "I thought we were competitive against them, it's just that we play six girls, and two of them just got back from COVID, so that hurt us too. I don't like excuses, so we just have to play a little smarter and harder in taking the ball out of bounds and bringing it down, and so on. They do a good job. They stay with you."

Oconto made 12 free throws in the second half and four 3-pointers.

Baxter led the team in scoring with 18, but that was mostly done in the first half, when she scored 13. Kyanne Wusterbarth scored all 11 of her points in the second half, and Viestenz scored all six of her points in the second half as well.

"Kyanne is a very good shooter. We have a lot of good shooters on our team. Alyse stepped up, made a nice shot, but our defensive intensity went up. I always say defense creates good offense," Thomson said.

Lund scored 22 points for Peshtigo, with 14 in the first half. Akira Smalls scored nine and Tonn got six.



Gillett Posts Road Win

at Niagara 47-41


Carleigh Kaczmarek's 20 points led Gillett past Niagara on Friday, 47-41.

Kaczmarek led all scorers, though it wasn't by too many points. Niagara's Morgan Borchardt contributed 19 points on 8-for-20 shooting (3-4 FTs), also adding nine rebounds.

The Badgers led 19-13 at halftime, but the Tigers' offense came alive in the second half, and they won the period 34-22.

They came out of the blocks hot, scoring the first 11 points of the half to take a 24-19 lead, with a bucket by Alaina Herzog making the lead five.

"We talked about the first half, we didn't take care of the ball and we didn't rebound," Gillett coach Gary Regal said. "As long as we took care of the ball, we could get good shots, so that's what we wanted to get. We rode Carleigh until the rest of us could get going. A great performance on both ends from her. It was a fun game."

Niagara fought back to make it a one-point game, 27-26, but Gillett would soon push the lead back to nine, 37-29.

Niagara cut the lead to 43-41 on a shot by Borchardt, but that was as close as it would get, with Niagara making the free throws to seal the game.

Niagara's leading rebounder was Pearson, who grabbed 12 rebounds and scored six points (3-7 FGs). Josie Rock scored 10 points (4-18 FGs, 1-2 FTs).

For Gillett, Alaina Herzog added 10, Cheyenne Krueger scored nine points and Macy Franti scored five. There was no doubt that it was Kaczmarek that got the team going, though.

"I just think with one person coming out, everybody else follows, and then that brings everybody back together," Kaczmarek said after the game. "I think the bus ride in, just having three games this week, just knowing that got in our heads a little, but then I'm really glad that second half, we brought it to them."



Lund's 35 Powers

Peshtigo Past

Sturgeon Bay


Thursday was one of those nights for Peshtigo where it felt like everything was going the Bulldogs' way.

The Bulldogs defeated Sturgeon Bay 83-28 on a 29-for-62 shooting night. They also made 23 of 31 free throws.

Jaci Tonn and Audra Bauman had five points and Maysen Brissette scored four.

"It was one of those games where no matter what you did, you seemed like you were successful," Peshtigo coach Bruce Parkovich said. "We might miss a shot, but it seemed like there was someone there to rebound. We're not going to have very many games like that."

Tigerton took the lead 2-0, but from there, it was all Wildcats. Lena went on a 21-2 run after that.

It was a physical road game for Lena coach Tim Goldschmidt's team.

"I always get this uneasy feeling when I come here to play. You never know what to expect. You've got officials doing a game after a boys' game and stuff," he said. "So I told the girls "just control what you can control, just come out and play, smile at the refs, and if things get a little bit physical, be the smart person in the deal,' and everything will be fine. I thought they did a great job."

"We're trying to be a fast break team, because we struggle every once in a while in the halfcourt offense," Goldschmidt said. "We try to get easy points as much as we can."
