Bulldogs/Marines Advance to Sectional Finals

Issue Date: June 24, 2021

Peshtigo Defeats Kewaunee to Advance to Sectional Final

The Peshtigo Bulldogs avenged their only Packerland Conference loss of the season with an 8-5 win over Kewaunee in the sectional semifinal on Monday.

Kewaunee won the conference after taking a tight 10-9 win over Peshtigo on May 21, and it looked like that was on the Bulldogs' minds early, as Peshtigo came out and scored six runs in the first inning.

Grace Wickman doubled from the leadoff spot and Karli Cahill singled, with one run scoring on an Allison Peters single.

Two batters later, a Sydney Lund single scored one, and Emma Gilligan poked one to the outfield for two RBIs.

In her second plate appearance of the inning, Wickman knocked in a run on a groundout to make it 6-0.

Peshtigo got two more in the second with Bethany Ahrens single, Allison Dudka triple, and Lund single doing the damage.

Peshtigo's offense would go quiet after that, with just two baserunners for the final five innings.

Peshtigo coach Bill Wickman said he wanted to play some small ball to get a few insurance runs in the later innings, but the Bulldogs couldn't put the leadoff runner on to manufacture runs.

A few insurance runs might have made things a bit more comfortable for Peshtigo, as Kewaunee made a run at it with four runs in the sixth to make it 8-5. In the seventh, the first two runners of the inning got to 3-0 counts, but Bethany Ahrens fought back for a strikeout and flyout.

Ahrens would finish seven innings with five earned runs allowing six hits and walked five. She struck out five, including the final batter of the game, with the tying run on deck.

"She did the job. She beared down," coach Wickman said. "Bethany pitched a good game. She threw a lot of pitches early, she struggled getting behind on batters, but you know what? For a sophomore, she's doing a hell of a job."

Wickman said while you always want to win comfortably, especially in sectionals, it was good for Peshtigo to battle a little bit going into Wednesday's sectional final against Wittenberg-Birnamwood.

"(Kewaunee) won the conference. They're a quality softball team. They play the game the way it should be played, they do the little things right, and realistically, they didn't hurt themselves," Wickman said. "I wouldn't say we got lucky, but we hit the ball early the in the game, we produced some runs, but against Kewaunee, I don't care where you're playing, our place, here, eight runs is not enough, because as you can see, it ended up being 8-5."

He was happy with his team's defense, which made just one error in the game.

"They were putting the ball in play at the end of the game and we really have to give our defense credit," Wickman said. "Our defense played great."

Grace Wickman, Lund, and Gilligan each had 2-for-4 days with a run scored each. Gilligan had two RBIs and Wickman and Lund had one apiece. Ahrens scored twice to help her cause.



Marinette Defeats Lux-Casco

The Marinette Marine girls defeated the Lux-Casco Spartans in a Regional Final victory 5-1.

"That run in the sixth was huge," said Marinette Scott McIntyre. "We came up with some good hits including an absolutely perfect bunt by Jordan. We were a little loose really but we really pulled it together."

The game was silent throughout the fifth inning. But after that, the flood gates opened for the Marines when W. Erdman reach base off a single followed by K. Kacalo off another single. Both were brought home off a two-RBI double by M. Carviou.

H. Ebsch scored Carviou with a double while Renikow brought in Ebsch on her single.

Lux-Casco responded with a one-run bottom of the innings before Marinette wrapped up their evening's scoring with a C Graway run in the seventh.

"This is a great team," said McIntyre. "Syd just dominates up there and today was handing them some good strikes."

Marinette's Syd Nemetz took the pitching win against the Spartans.

"It was nice to have a good lead today," said Syd Nemetz. "The girls were playing great defense all day long. It gave me a lot of confidence.



Marinette Takes Down Freedom in Regional Victory

The Marinette Marines faced off against a tough Freedom Irish team in regional playoff action and survived the contest with a close 3-2 final verdict.

The win saw the Marines girls get on the board in the fourth when H. Ebsch scored a run off a Syd Nemetz hit. Nemetz made it a two-run game a short while later when she crossed home.

Marinette's W. Erdman raised the score to three runs in the fifth.

Freedom scored its first run of the night in the fourth inning while adding their last run in the sixth.



Coleman Advances with Win over Shiocton

The Coleman Cougars took a regional semi-final win over the Shiocton Wolves Wednesday night 11-1.

"It wasn't that we weren't ready on Monday," said Coleman head coach Jean LeVash. "It wasn't that we took Crivitz lightly. Errors can be contagious. What I love about this team is they don't let anything bother them or take away their composure. This team doesn't get rattled."

Coleman's big night started early in the first inning when Alyssa Hoida, Mackenzie Champagne, and Cameron Compe all got hits and scored for the Cougars.

Coleman added an additional three runs in the second inning while scoring their seven of the night in the third.

After a short pause in the scoring over the fourth and fifth innings, the Cougars slammed home a game-ending four runs to bring their tally to 11.

Chloe Dufeck took the win for the Cougars allowing five hits and one run along with one walk in her six innings pitched. She struck out seven on the night.

"I was a little nervous going into the game," said winning Coleman pitcher Chloe Dufek. "Once I got going though I felt fine out there. The game felt perfect. "

At the plate, Cameron Compe was three for three with two RBIs and two runs. Hoida was two for three with one RBI and three runs while Christina Ermis went two for three on the night.

"I always try to read batters for my girls," said LeVash. "It helps the defense to have an idea of where the ball might be going. We just came out strong tonight. We knew we had to jump on them right away and we didn't give them an inch."



Coleman Falls in Regional Final to Iola-Scandinavia 

The Coleman Cougars saw their season end Tuesday night when they faced off with the girls from Iola-Scandinavia who took the match with a close 4-2 final.

The match was a  grid-locked defensive battle that saw neither team post a run over the first three innings.

Coleman broke the silence with a Cameron Compe run in the fourth.

Iola-Scandinavia responded with three of their four runs in the top of the fifth.

Coleman's second and last run of the evening was scored by Michaela Zeitler in the fifth.

Iola Scandinavia's Jones picked up the win pitching seven innings and allowing six hits while striking out two.

Coleman's Chloe Dufeck took the loss for Coleman allowing five hits and one walk along with the four runs. She struck out two.

At the plate, Zeitler was two for three with one run. Compe was one for three with one run.



Badgers Bow Out in Regional Playoff Loss

The Niagara Badgers ran into a wall of runs from the Florence Bobcats Wednesday afternoon in Florence. The regional playoff match-up saw the Bobcats blast the Badgers with a 12-4 final.

Niagara got on the boards first with a run by Aiva Champeau. She reached base off a single before going home on a bases-loaded walk by Haley Allred.

After stopping the Bobcats from scoring in their half of the opening inning the Badgers increased their lead with a run from Abby Wells who reached with a single and scored on a passed ball.

After those two runs, the game started to shift in favor of the Bobcats who piled on three runs in the bottom of the second.

Florence scored two in the Third before going wild in the fourth with a five-run effort.

During that inning, the Bobcats' Sidney Tomczak swatted a double that brought home two runners.

Niagara scored Abigail Richtig and Allred in the fifth while Florence finished their night of scoring off with two in the bottom half of the inning.

Taking the pitching win was Florence's Sidney Tomczak who allowed eight hits, four runs (three earned), and two walks while striking out three.

Noelle Champagne took the loss giving up 13 hits, 12 runs (four earned), and four walks. She struck out five along the way in her six-inning game.
