Maroons Best Marines in Hard Fought M&M Game

Issue Date: January 6, 2022

Boys Baskteball

The Marinette Marines battled hard but couldn't match Menominee's 83 points in a 14-point M&M Game loss on Thursday.

Menominee scored 47 points in the first half, but Marinette hung around and improved its defense in the second half, holding Menominee to 36.

It was the efficiency of Menominee that made the difference. Marinette shot the ball well, but the Maroons were very good in that regard.

Aidan Bellisle scored 26 points, Brady Schultz had 23 and Cooper Conway scored 16. Brady Badker chipped in 11.

"It was really nice to have Coop back. He's just a physical, strong presence, and I thought we really settled for way too many outside shots throughout the entire game," Menominee coach Sam Larson said. "The whole plan was to try and get the ball inside, and for whatever reason, we were unable to do that for long stretches of the game. Any time we were able to get the ball inside to Cooper or Schultz, it was productive for us, so that was a nice thing to see and something that we probably need to get to more often."

Marinette got 14 points from both Jake and Sam Sommerfeldt, while Carson Erdman added 13 and Keegan Polomis had 12.

Marinette coach Matt Joost said it was probably the best game Erdman had played in purple and white. If his team plays like it did Thursday, he expects better results on the scoreboard come the rest of North Eastern Conference play.

"They gave it everything tonight, and I think Carson had probably his best game of the season. He was very, very aggressive. He took pride in trying to win this rivalry game from the get-go," Joost said. "Jake and Keegan always consistently play their butts off and do the right things, and we did a really good job of getting to the basket and handling that pressure a little bit. They did a really good job of closing on our shooters. We didn't get a lot of stuff from the outside tonight, so that was a credit to them too. They are very good offensively and they are very good defensively, too. They came to play on both sides, and so did we. I thought we matched their intensity all night, especially those three seniors. In their last M&M game, they have something to be very, very proud of. Obviously they're all disappointed, but I told them to keep their chins up and I hope they take something out of this and know going into conference play, our results can definitely get a few more Ws as we get some of the teams we have coming up. If we play like that, I know the result will be different."

Larson was happy with the result. It's always good to win an M&M Game, after all.

"I give a lot of credit to our kids," he said. "We made a lot of crucial plays at crucial moments and executed some plays at crucial moments to pull out a victory. Like I told our guys, Marinette's not going to lay down in a rivalry game, and they came out and played hard. I thought Marinette's dribble penetration really gave us problems throughout the game, really. We didn't do a very good job of staying in front of the basketball, but we were able to score efficiently enough to maintain a bit of a lead throughout the game."
