Peshtigo Girls Heat Up; Claim Three More Victories

Issue Date: January 6, 2021

Bulldogs Run Away From Rangers in Non-Conference Play

The Peshtigo Bulldogs dominated former M&O Conference foes Wausaukee on Saturday, winning by a 53-17 score, with a 33-0 run in the middle of the game the exclamation point.

Despite the final score, it was actually the Rangers that came out strong and the Peshtigo offense that came out sputtering. With 10:40 to go in the first half, Wausaukee held a 7-6 lead following five points from Sparrow Luccarini.

Wausaukee would score just two points over that final 10:40, however, missing all of its shots from the field and all five of its free throws.

"I was a little surprised with that because we always start out poor. Then we shut down and you see, when we get behind, the wheels fall off immediately," Wausaukee coach Dave Messar said. "The lugnuts don't even get loose, the wheels just fall off, but our start today was much better. But having only six girls is a huge battle."

As Messar said, Wausaukee had only six players in the game, meaning only one Ranger was on the bench at a time.

That showed in the second half, as Peshtigo held Wausaukee scoreless over the first seven and a half minutes of the half, meaning in total, Wausaukee was scoreless for over 18 minutes straight, giving way to a 33-0 Peshtigo run.

For Wausaukee, Luccarini's nine points led the way, and Rachel Schlies added five.

Peshtigo coach Bruce Parkovich said Schlies is a good player but said, "I think she just ran out of gas after a while" with a small Rangers roster.

Contrasting with Wausaukee's six-player roster, all 10 Bulldogs that saw the floor made at least one bucket, with no Bulldog scoring more than 10 points on an even scoring night.

Brooklyn Phillips led the team with 10 points, Emma Gilligan had eight and Jaci Tonn had seven. Allison Dudka and Grace Wickman had six apiece.

"We've got nine or 10 girls that can play. That's nice to be able to have some depth. This is the first year I've had that kind of depth, so that's important. We've just got to keep plugging away here and hopefully we can stay in contention anyway. We've got three games next week so we've got to be able to play hard in all the games."



Peshtigo Remains Undefeated in Packerland With Win Over Gibraltar

The Peshtigo Bulldogs continued their winning ways on Monday with a 52-34 win over Gibraltar.

Peshtigo led 29-21 at the half, but it was the Bulldogs' defense in the second half that made the day. Gibraltar scored just 13 points in the second half, making just four shots from the field in the half.

Peshtigo's offense wasn't red-hot in the second half, but its 23 points was more than enough to back up its defensive stronghold.

Peshtigo got 16 points from Grace Wickman, including 11 in the first half. Jaci Tonn scored 14, with eight in the first half, and Akira Smalls scored 10, with seven in the first half. Sydney Lund had six points.

Gibraltar was led by 12 points from Sage Krause and 11 from Karlee Kita.

Peshtigo coach Bruce Parkovich described the matchup with Gibraltar as "a big game for us" prior to the game, referencing Gibraltar's 4-1 record coming into the game and the fact that it was an opportunity for Peshtigo to remain undefeated in Packerland play.

Strong First HalfLeads Peshtigo Past N.E.W.

Peshtigo played lockdown defense in the first half against NEW Lutheran to build a 31-13 lead at the break, then held on to a 53-43 win.

Leah Schmidt scored nine of NEW's 13 points in the first half as the NEW offense struggled in the early going. She would finish with 11 in the game.

A couple of Blazers would get hot in the second half to make it a ballgame, with Bailey Schulz scoring 13 of her 15 and Josie Nelson scoring all 11 of her points in the second half to make it close, but Peshtigo's comfortable halftime lead was enough to give the Bulldogs the win.

"We started out very well. We got a nice lead," Peshtigo coach Bruce Parkovich said. "I knew they were going to make a comeback at us, we just couldn't let it be a quick comeback, but we played well."

Peshtigo's first-half 31 was a balanced 31. Emma Gilligan and Allison Peters had seven apiece, with eight Bulldogs getting on the scoresheet in the first half. Grace Wickman's 10 points would lead the team, as four players scored seven points (Sydney Lund, Jaci Tonn, Gilligan and Peters) and two scored six (Allison Dudka and Akira Smalls).

"What a balanced scoring we had. I think that's very nice to be able to do that," Parkovich said. "They're not a bad team and I knew that. They're going to beat some teams along the way that they probably shouldn't but I'm just happy we got the win."
