Sports Archives for 2019-12

High school sports silent until Friday

High school sports fans will have to wait a few days before seeing their favorite athletes take to the court and mat this week.

 

A wintry weather system forced school officials to cancel Algoma's boys basketball game Monday night, leaving Friday as the next day where athletes will compete. Friday's slate includes five girls basketball and six boys basketball games. Two basketball games and three wrestling invitationals will be featured on Saturday.

 

Phoenix split Monday slate

The Green Bay Phoenix men's basketball team scored a road upset at Northern Kentucky while the women's squad came up just short against Wright State in their games Monday.

 

In Highland Heights, Kentucky, the Phoenix men took advantage of a cold shooting Norse squad while being efficient offensively to win their first Horizon League game of the season 73-59. PJ Pipes scored a career-high 20 points in the win while Manny Patterson collected a double-double with 15 points and 10 rebounds. The men return home Friday to face UIC.

 

At the Kress Center in Green Bay, the Phoenix women went cold at the wrong time in its 70-58 loss to the Raiders. The Phoenix did not make a shot from the field in the final minutes of the game while the Raiders came back from a three-point deficit in the third quarter to take control of the game. Frankie Wurtz led the Phoenix with 13 points. The Phoenix are back in action Saturday against in-state rival Milwaukee.

Big quarter springs Bucks past Bulls

The Milwaukee Bucks outscored the Chicago Bulls 40-25 in the game's third quarter en route to a 123-102 road victory.

 

The Bulls defense simply could not slow down the Bucks offense, which knocked down 11 three pointers and connected on 54 percent of their shots. Khris Middleton led the Bucks with 25 points with Giannis Antetokounmpo close behind with 23 of his own. Four other players scored in double figures for the Bucks, including 14 points off the bench for Ersan Illyasova. Zach Lavine scored 19 in the loss for the Bulls. The Bucks are back in action New Year's Day night when they host the Minnesota Timberwolves.


Algoma-Reedsville basketball game postponed

The Algoma Wolves boys basketball team will have to wait until the New Year to play another game.  The game at Reedsville scheduled for Monday night has been postponed due to the predicted bad weather and icy road conditions.  No makeup date has been announced at this time.  The Wolves' next scheduled game is Friday night at Peshtigo.

 

Algoma makes trip to Reedsville

The Algoma Wolves will get their first action of the holiday break on Monday when they play at Reedsville Monday night.

 

The Wolves are still in search of its first victory on the season after losing to Oconto 65-47. Carter Zimmermann has been a bright spot on the Wolves, leading the team in points (11.6 ppg), rebounds (8.2 rpg), and assists (2.4 apg). Reedsville comes into the game with a 3-3 record, blowing out Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah 72-42 its last time out. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:15 p.m.

New coaches in L-C, Southwest match-up

The two teams may be very familiar with each other, but new faces are roaming the sidelines for Luxemburg-Casco and Green Bay Southwest.

 

The two teams have been frequent matchups in the past not just in regular season but in the playoffs. That was back when Erin Barkley roamed the sidelines for the Trojans and Jeff Jodar did the same for the Spartans. Now it is Taylor Schmidt for the Spartans and Berri West for the Trojans holding the reins for their respective teams. One constant the last three years has been Jaddan Simmons, who has been one of the state's best players and will continue her career at Arizona State next year. The Spartans will look to rebound from its loss to Clintonville over 10 days ago when it hosts the Trojans for a 7:15 p.m. tip. 

Wrestling round-up: Kewaunee's Severin, Southern Door's Englebert place

In addition to Luxemburg-Casco winning its division at the Bi-State Classic in LaCrosse, the area's three other wrestling teams competed at the On The Water Classic in Oshkosh.

 

Kewaunee's Jack Severin took fourth place at 126 pounds and Southern Door's Grant Englebert took 6th at 160 pounds to be the area's only place winners at the 50-plus team tournament. The Eagles were the top scoring team from the peninsula in the tournament, finishing in 45th place with 58 points.

Packers capture second seed

The Green Bay Packers ended up being just inches away from getting the top seed in the NFC Playoffs, but had to earn a tough 23-20 victory over the Detroit Lions before that could even be a possibility.

 

Much like their previous meeting, the Lions looked like the better team by jumping out to a two-touchdown lead thanks to a trick play ending with quarterback David Blough catching a pass and a Kerryon Johnson rush. Mason Crosby would get the Packers on the board with a field goal, but a couple of big plays for the Lions helped Matt Prater keep it a 14 point lead at the break. Aaron Rodgers broke out of his first-half funk with a third-quarter touchdown pass to Davante Adams before the Packers took control of the game in the fourth quarter. Crosby and Prater once again traded field goals before Rodgers found Allen Lazard from 28 yards out to tie the game at 20. After the Packers turned the Lions offense, Crosby was able to kick the game-winner from 33 yards out to clinch the first-round bye. A close call victory by the 49ers over the Seahawks cemented the Packers as the second seed and will now wait to play either the Saints, Eagles, or the Seahawks.

Phoenix back in action Monday

Both Green Bay Phoenix basketball teams will squeeze games before the New Year Monday night.

 

The Phoenix men will continue its first Horizon League road trip of the season when it plays at Northern Kentucky at 6 p.m. The Norse already took down one Wisconsin opponent this weekend when it beat Milwaukee 74-64. The Phoenix fell in its first game of the trip, losing to Wright State 90-84.

 

The Phoenix women will try to make it two in a row in the conference when it plays defending league champion Wright State at the Kress Center. The Lady Raiders lost to Milwaukee on Saturday 60-58 while the Phoenix knocked off the Norse 65-44. Tip off is at 7 p.m.

Packers battle Lions for seeding

The Green Bay Packers can earn a lot more than just a win against the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

 

A Saints loss or a Packers win give the Green and Gold a first-round bye to go along with its home game reward for being the NFC North champion. Throw a 49ers loss into the mix and the Packers could earn home-field advantage throughout the playoffs in addition to its first round bye. The Lions are no push over despite them losing nine of their last ten games. It took a walk-off field goal by Mason Crosby to tip the Lions 23-22 at Lambeau in the teams' first meeting this year, which also snapped a four game losing streak for the Packers against their Detroit rivals.

 

Kick-off is set for noon.

Bucks defeat Magic 111-110

Despite playing without Giannis Antetokounmpo for the second night in a row, the Milwaukee Bucks used balanced scoring and a fourth quarter spurt to put away the Orlando Magic 111-100 Saturday night at Fiserv Forum.  The Bucks led by as much as 19 points in the first half and saw the lead dwindle to just two points in the third quarter.  That's when Ersan Ilyasova hit key shots and the Bucks pulled away for a comfortable win.  Ilyasova scored 17 points, hitting 5/6 three-point shots, and added 14 rebounds to help fill the void of the Bucks missing two of their top players.  Khris Middleton led the Bucks (29-5)  in scoring with 21 points while Robin Lopez and George HIll added 17 as well.

Phoenix men fall to Wright State 90-84

The U.W.-Green Bay men's basketball team could not outgun the Wright State Raiders Saturday in a 90-84 shootout at the Nutter Center.  The Phoenix (5-9) battled all game long and even led by five points with five minutes to go, but could not hang on for the upset.  Wright State (11-3) was led by Loudon Love who scored 22 points.  Amari Davis paced the Phoenix with 18 points.    

Lady Phoenix defeat Northern Kentucky 65-44

The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Phoenix Women's basketball team overpowered the Northern Kentucky University Norse 65-44 at the Kress Center Saturday afternoon.  The Phoenix took a commanding 47-13 lead into halftime and never looked back.  Madison Wolf scored 12 points to pace U.W.G.B. while Ally Niece led NKU with nine points.  Green Bay (1-0, 6-7 overall) broke a four game losing steak and will now host Wright State Monday night.

Badgers basketball trounces Tennessee

The Wisconsin Badgers Men Basketball team overwhelmed the Tennessee Volunteers Saturday afternoon at Thompson-Boling Arena 69-48.  Holding the Vols to just 35 percent in shooting and hitting 11 three-pointers, the Badgers cruised to a big non-conference victory before turning their attention to the Big Ten schedule in the New Year.  Wisconsin (7-5) were led by D'Mitrik Trice with 21 points and Brevin Pritzl added 17 off the bench.  

Basketball games scheduled for Saturday

The Sturgeon Bay High School boys basketball team has amended its schedule and will be taking on Two Rivers Saturday afternoon beginning at 3 PM. The game was originally slated for January 30th. Two Rivers is no stranger to the Packerland, having played Kewaunee and Algoma to open up the season. They are 3-4 so far. Sturgeon Bay is 2-2. The Clippers' last time out was a gritty loss against Milwaukee South. Neither team scored 40 points. 


In girls action, Two Rivers again matches up against the Packerland. They host Algoma. The Wolves are 2-5.

 

On The Water Classic this weekend

Oshkosh has been hosting the On The Water Classic in boys wrestling since 1990. It continues to grow with almost 60 teams competing this year. That includes Southern Door, Kewaunee, and Sturgeon Bay all in action. With Friday’s results complete, Southern Door is faring the best among area squads with a team total of 46 points. Kewaunee has 34 and the Clippers 5. Coleman leads with 232. 


One Southern Door wrestler remains after five rounds. Grant Englebert is alive in the 160-pound weight class after defeating Bonduel’s Moises Lagunes by major decision, 14-4, in his last match on Friday. Englebert looks to continue to advance in the consolation round Saturday.


Kewaunee’s Jack Severin was defeated in the quarterfinals at 126 pounds by Manitowoc Lutheran’s Jordan Craft. Mitchell Thompson is finding success in the consolation bracket at 145 pounds.

 

Sevastopol boys to play in Lena consolation game

The Sevastopol High School boys basketball team is competing in a tournament in Lena this weekend. The first round was Friday with the Pioneers being edged by Stockbridge 66-61. That drops Sevastopol to 0-4 on the season. They will play again Saturday in the consolation game against the host school. 


The Panthers are also winless on the season at 0-6 meaning the matchup represents Sevastopol’s best chance, to date, to break into the win column. Lena lost to the fourth team in the tournament, Valley Christian, by a healthy 70-48 margin. Tipoff is at 4 PM.

 

Kewaunee boys flip the script

The Kewaunee High School boys basketball team has had two nonconference losses this season by a combined six points. Friday night, it was the Storm picking up a win in a close contest outside of the Packerland when they defeated Denmark 63-59. 


The Vikings have played some familiar opponents this year including Marinette and Southern Door, winning both of those games. The result would suggest the January 21st showdown in Brussels between the Storm and Eagles has a legitimate chance at deciding the conference’s regular season champion. Kewaunee’s next game is Friday, January 3rd against NEW Lutheran.

 

Sheboygan Falls too much for Eagles

The Southern Door High School boys basketball team looked to make a statement in non-conference play on Saturday, but things did not go as planned. The Eagles were dropped by Sheboygan Falls, 75-40. The loss snaps a five-game winning streak for Southern Door. It was the Falcon’s sixth consecutive victory. 


Sheboygan Falls was successful at keeping Ryan Claflin in check. The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay commit was held to 13 points. Jack Peterson added 10 for the Eagles. Sheboygan Falls had a balanced attack. Jamison Nicklaus led the Falcons with 14 and four others had at least nine points.

Sevastopol record board needs your help

Depending on your memory, you can help update the Sevastopol girls' track record board.

 

The Sevastopol School District will be posting a new hallway display case in the near future, but it is asking for help when it comes to the years the records were broken. You can contact the school if you have any information on these record holders. One is easy though, Zoe Kuehn broke the mark for the triple-jump this spring, You can read more about that experience when it happened here.

The Sixers had five players knock down at least three three-point shots, including the team's leading scorer Joel Embiid, who had 31 points. He was matched by the Bucks' leading scorer Khris Middleton, who drilled five three-point shots of his own in the loss. Giannis Antetokounmpo had a rare off night despite getting a double-double with 18 points and 14 rebounds. Antetokounmpo only connected on eight of his 27 shots, including missing on all seven of his three-point attempts. 

 

The Bucks will try to start a new winning streak on Friday when it travels to Atlanta to face the Hawks.

Bonus points huge for Southern Door wrestlers

Southern Door wrestlers are not joking around when it comes to getting wins on the mat this season. The Eagles pinned their way through Bay Port in defeat and did no worse than a couple of technical falls in its win against Gillett/Suring. At last Saturday’s Kewaunee Invitational, 18 of the team’s 21 wins came with extra points thanks to winning by 10 or more points or in 16 cases, by pins. Head coach Jerry Englebert says they have been working hard on getting the most out of their matches.

The Eagles will join Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol and Kewaunee in Oshkosh this weekend for the Lourdes Academy On the Water Invitational.

Bucks celebrate Christmas in Philly

The Milwaukee Bucks hope to unwrap a victory this afternoon against the Philadelphia 76ers. 

 

The Bucks have won three games since they saw their streak break last week while the 76ers have split their last six games out. Giannis Antetokounmpo finds himself among the leaders in two categories including second in points and sixth in rebounding, The 76ers hope their starting five can catch a spark behind the talented trip of Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, and Al Horford.

 

The Bucks are 3-2 in Christmas Day games and hope to add to that win total when they tip off at 1:30 p.m.  

Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol excited for Denamur's return

On a young wrestling team like Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol, it is always great to have some experience in the room. The team got just that this year when junior Ben Denamur returned to the mat a few weeks ago after injuries eliminated his sophomore campaign. Denamur already has three tournaments under his belt with the high water mark being a fourth-place finish at the Brillion Invitational a few weeks ago. Head coach Trevor Hasenjager says it is great seeing Denamur back.

Denamur and the Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol wrestling team will follow the likes of Kewaunee and Southern Door to Oshkosh this weekend for the Lourdes Academy’s On The Water Invitational.

Packers run the North

The Green Bay Packers have clinched a home playoff game and can still get a first-round bye after its NFC North-clinching 23-10 victory over the Minnesota Vikings Monday night.

 

The Packers could have had an even bigger offensive night if it wasn't for three costly turnovers that gave the Vikings excellent field position for their two scores on the evening. The two teams traded field goals in the first quarter before Stefon Diggs reached the endzone on a Kirk Cousins pass to make it 10-3. The Packers would kick two more field goals to make it a one-point game at the half. The final two scores of the game came thanks to the legs of Aaron Jones who scampered for a 12-yard touchdown in the third quarter and one from 56 yards to put the game out of reach. Jones rushed for 156 yards while Aaron Rodgers threw for 216 yards and an interception.

 

The Packers will play their final game of the season Sunday in Detroit against the Lions with a chance for home-field advantage throughout the playoffs a possibility.

Bucks secure win against Pacers

Giannis Antetokounmpo just missed getting a triple-double in the Milwaukee Bucks' 117-89 win over the Indiana Pacers Sunday night at Fiserv Forum.

 

Antetokoumpo was just an assist short of the feat, scoring 18 points and collecting 19 rebounds in the win. Wesley Matthews led the Bucks the scoring with 19 points while Khris Middleton, Brook Lopez. George Hill, and Robin Lopez also scored in double-figures. While the game was tight in the first half with the two teams trading leads, the Bucks outscored the Pacers 58-34 after the break to earn its third straight victory.

 

The Bucks will now wait until Christmas Day in Philadelphia to unwrap its next game, a 1:30 p.m. tilt against the 76ers.

Slow week for high school sports

The schedule is pretty bare for local high school teams outside of practice time in some cases due to the Christmas holiday.

 

The wrestling team is the only Luxemburg-Casco team in action this week as they head to LaCrosse on Friday for the Bi-State Tournament featuring some of the best teams in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Southern Door, Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol, and Kewaunee wrestling teams will also be in action, but at UW-Oshkosh for the On The Water Tournament hosted by Lourdes Academy.

 

Hoops fans will have to wait until Friday for their action as well as the Sturgeon Bay girls play 12:30 matinee Friday at Chilton. Boys' basketball fans can head to Lena for a holiday tournament featuring Sevastopol or wait until 7:30 p.m. for a Southern Door road game at Sheboygan Falls Kewaunee playing at home against Denmark.

Packers search for NFC crown in Minneapolis

The Green Bay Packers could clinch its first NFC North crown since 2016 with a win tonight against Minnesota Vikings in Minneapolis.

 

Both teams enter the contest winners of four of their last five with the pair battling for a home game in the playoffs. The Packers won the teams' previous matchup at Lambeau Field, a 21-16 decision that saw Aaron Jones rush for over 110 yards and a score while Aaron Rodgers threw two touchdowns.

 

The game is set to kickoff at 7:15 p.m.

Southern Door tries for fifth in a row at home

The Southern Door High School boys basketball team didn’t have a lot of time to savor their Thursday night victory. Less than 48 hours later, they’re back on the court against New Holstein. The Huskies hail from the Eastern Wisconsin Conference and are winless on the season. They are not strangers to Packerland teams. Their last game was Tuesday night against Chilton. The Tigers won 75-67. 


New Holstein does not have a player averaging more than 15 points per game. Southern Door has two with Ryan Claflin (25 ppg) and Alex Daoust (17.6 ppg). New Holstein cannot match the dynamic potential of Southern Door’s best players and will look to grind out a low scoring game in the half court to compensate.

Wisconsin has proven to be a different team at home compared to neutral site games or road contests. Away from the Kohl Center they have dropped four straight. In Madison, they cruised two weeks ago against Big Ten opponent Indiana, 84-64. They will hope to have the home cooking serve up a buffet of offense again against the Panthers.

Kewaunee stand out signs letter of intent

The next action for Luxemburg-Casco, Southern Door, and Kewaunee will be Saturday in Suamico as they compete in the Battle of the Bay Tournament at Bay Port High School. Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol will travel a little further south for a Saturday invitational at Brillion. 

 

Speaking of Bay Port, the Pirates will replace Crivitz as one of the opponents as Southern Door hosts a triple dual on Tuesday night along with Gillett/Suring.

 

 

Boys' basketball preview: L-C joins Friday slate

The regularly scheduled Luxemburg-Casco Spartans boys basketball game for Thursday night against Marinette has been rescheduled due to the weather. The Spartans will now play Marinette at home Friday night beginning at 6 p.m.

 

Friday was already a busy night for boys' basketball with four Packerland Conference games scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Those games include Sturgeon Bay hosting Oconto, Southern Door traveling to Peshtigo, Kewaunee playing at home against Gibraltar, and Algoma making the trip to Green Bay to face NEW Lutheran.

Girls' basketball round-up: Wolves fall to Blazers

Algoma was one of the few teams in the area that got their game in Thursday night, falling to NEW Lutheran 40-31. 

 

The Wolves were down only by one heading into the second half, but were outscored by the Blazers 20-12 in the final frame. Emersyn Wallace led the Wolves with 13 points while Ericka Berger chipped in with 10. The loss drops the Wolves to 1-4 on the season.

 

Yesterday's postponed game between Sturgeon Bay and Oconto has been shifted Friday night ahead of the boys' game in Sturgeon Bay and will tip off at 6 p.m. Sevastopol will also play at 6 p.m. against St. Thomas Aquinas. Luxemburg-Casco will play on the road at Fox Valley Lutheran beginning at 7 p.m.

Phoenix women look to rebound against Maine

The Green Bay Phoenix women's basketball team travels to the Eastern seaboard this weekend to erase last weekend's tough loss to DePaul.

 

First up on the trip is Maine for a 6 p.m. tip. The Black Bears have gotten off to a slow start this season, but have made the NCAA Tournament each of the last two seasons and have won 31 of their last 34 home games. The Phoenix hope Caitlyn Hibner is able to go after sustaining an injury in the game against DePaul, but have had Frankie Wurtz show up in a big way their last few games out. Wurtz has scored 20 points in three games this season, including 25 against the Blue Demons.

Bucks travel to Memphis

The Milwaukee Bucks look to extend their winning streak to 17 games when they travel to Memphis to face the Grizzlies Friday night.

 

While the Bucks are working towards their longest winning streak in franchise history, the Grizzlies are working to get to their own winning ways as they have lost nine of their last 12 games. Giannis Antetokounmpo will likely be a game-time decision as he is still nursing an injury that kept him out of Wednesday's win against the Pelicans.

 

Tip off is set for 7 p.m.

Girls' basketball preview: Four Packerland games set

All Packerland Conference teams in the Door Peninsula are set to play Thursday night in girls' basketball action.

 

Sevastopol kicks off the action at 6 p.m. against Northeast Wisconsin Christian Homeschoolers Athletic Associaton as part of a Pioneer doubleheader in Institute.

 

All other Packerland Conference games are set for 7:30 p.m. tips with Algoma hosting NEW Lutheran, Kewaunee traveling to Gibraltar, Southern Door staying home to face Peshtigo, and Sturgeon Bay battling Oconto.

Boys' basketball preview: Sevastopol part of doubleheader

Sevastopol hoops fans will get to invoke their inner Ernie Banks Thursday night as the boys play the second game of a Pioneer doubleheader Thursday.

 

The Pioneers will host Northeast Wisconsin Christian Homeschoolers Athletic Associaton in both games of the doubleheader, with the boys tipping off after the girls game at 7:30 p.m. They are looking for their first win of the season after dropping their first two games, including a 61-50 loss to Peshtigo earlier this week. 

 

Luxemburg-Casco will stay put at home as they host the Marinette Marines in their first conference game of the year after splitting their opening games against Green Bay teams. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m.

Wrestling preview: L-C, Kewaunee in action

A pair of local wrestling squads will hit the mat Thursday night for dual meets.

 

In Kewaunee, the Storm look to win their second dual meet of the season when it hosts Kiel for a 7 p.m. dual. The Storm won their first dual of the season last week against Green Bay United while the Raiders have blown out Valders and Two Rivers in the past seven days, winning both by a combined score of 131-18.

 

Luxemburg-Casco looks for its first conference win of the season when it travels to Marinette to face the Marines for a 6:30 p.m. dual. After dropping its first meet to Denmark, the Spartans won three out of four duals at its own event last Saturday.

First half sets tone for Bucks win

Credit another fast start for the Milwaukee Bucks for its 127-112 win over the New Orleans Pelicans Wednesday night.

 

The Bucks outscored the Pelicans 35-20 in the opening quarter and cruised into the second half with a 23 point advantage. With Giannis Antetokounmpo getting the night off, Eric Bledsoe led the way for the Bucks with 29 points with Khris Middleton chipping in another 24. Ersan Illyasova and George Hill also scored in double figures in the win. Pelicans guard JJ Redick led all scorers with 31 points in the loss. 

 

The Bucks will head to Memphis for a quick Friday night matchup against the Grizzlies before coming back Saturday to start another three-game homestand against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Badgers fall to Rutgers

The Wisconsin Badgers were not excluded from a night of suprises in Big Ten basketball action Wednesday night, losing to Rutgers 72-65.

 

The Badgers entered the second half holding a slim one point lead, but were outscored by the Scarlet Knights 40-32 in the final frame to lose their first conference game of the season. Kobe King led the Badgers with 18 points while Trevor Anderson came off the bench to score another 11. Rebounding was a large factor in the win for the Scarlet Knights, grabbing 40 boards to just 25 for the Badgers with 14 of those coming off the offensive glass.

 

The Badgers look to right the ship next Saturday when it hosts in-state rival Milwaukee. In the meantime, the Green Bay men play this Saturday at home against Evansville and Marquette hosts Grambling State next Tuesday.

Wisconsin Badgers at Rutgers Wednesday

The University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team goes from one of the Big Ten’s oldest programs to one of its newest. After opening Big Ten play with a win over Indiana this weekend, they are at Rutgers on Wednesday night. Rutgers is 6-3 overall but it has not been against the best competition. The Scarlet Knights have had matchups against mid-majors like St. Bonaventure and Stephen F. Austin. Those are the highlights of nonconference play. The Badgers should pose a sterner test than Niagara, Bryant, or the New Jersey Institute of Technology. Rutgers has lost to Pittsburgh and Michigan State its last two times out.


For Wisconsin, it is a case of finding consistent offense. The Badgers have lacked punch away from the Kohl Center. Playing in Brooklyn, not far from Rutgers’ New Jersey campus, and in North Carolina against the Wolfpack, the Badgers had to scrape for 50 points in each game. If Rutgers can force Wisconsin into stagnant offense like that again Wednesday, the Badgers stand a good chance of dropping their third game out of their last four. Wisconsin hopes that the 84 it netted against Indiana in the conference opener is a harbinger of things to come. 

 

Sevastopol boys dropped by Peshtigo

In just the second game of the season for the Sevastopol High School boys basketball team, the offense still failed to click Tuesday night against Peshtigo. Sevastopol fell to 0-2, losing 61-50 to the Bulldogs. Last year’s squad saw a similar slow start with the offense coming to life after Christmas. Before the holiday in 2018, Sevastopol scored under 40 points in three of their first six games. That happened once in their last 14. 


If this year’s team stays true to form, they should be rounding into shape come the Lena Invitational. Before then, the Pioneers play NEW Christian Home School Thursday and are at Southern Door next week.

 

Kewaunee boys win rivalry game

The Kewaunee High School boys basketball team rose to the challenge of a rivalry game on the road Tuesday night. The Storm rode the hot hand of Ryan Carmichael. He dropped 30 points on the Algoma Wolves in a 78-32 victory. Yes, Carmichael almost outscored Algoma by himself. He almost outscored the rest of his teammates too. Tanor Bortolini was the Storm’s second-highest scorer at 11.


Kewaunee is 2-1 and undefeated in the Packerland. Their next game is Friday hosting Gibraltar. Algoma is still looking for the first win of the season. They match up with NEW Lutheran on Friday in Green Bay.

 

Southern Door boys win Tuesday night

The Southern Door High School boys basketball team soared Tuesday night against previously undefeated Oconto. The Eagles gave the Blue Devils their first loss of the season, 77-64. Southern Door improved to 2-1 on the season while remaining unbeaten in Packerland Conference play. So far, Southern Door is winning their conference games by an average of 20 points. 


The Eagles are back on the court Friday when they travel to Peshtigo.  The Bulldogs are 1-1 without a conference game so far in 2019-20. They defeated Marinette by 27 before losing by two in a tight road game against Northland Pines. Peshtigo is averaging 76 points per game while Southern Door has yet to give up 70 points in a contest so far.

 

Girls' basketball preview: Sturgeon Bay, Luxemburg-Casco in action

A pair of games highlights the girls' basketball schedule for Tuesday night. 

 

Sturgeon Bay travels to Green Bay West to face the Wildcats to try to make it two in a row on the young season. The Clippers won their last time out, narrowly defeating NEW Lutheran 39-37,

 

Luxemburg-Casco will stay at home to try and grab their first win of the season against Waupaca. The Comets are looking for their first win since their opening night victory against Ripon.

 

Both games tip at 7 p.m.

Boys' basketball round-up: L-C drops game against Notre Dame

Luxemburg-Casco lost the only local game yesterday, losing to Green Bay Notre Dame at home Monday night 79-64.

 

The Spartans kept it close early, heading into the break down 34-32. The Tritons came out firing in the second half, outscoring the Spartans 45-32 to capture the victory. The Spartans next play on Thursday night at home against Marinette.

 

Packerland basketball action Tuesday night includes Kewaunee traveling to Algoma, Sevastopol hosting Peshtigo, and Southern Door playing at home against Oconto. All games scheduled to have a 7:30 p.m. tip time.

Youth wrestlers have success at first tourney

Some early season wrestling action this past weekend at the Luxemburg-Casco Dan Wery Memorial youth tournament saw several Southern Door youth and middle school wrestlers competing.  It was an opportunity to knock off some rust and get back into the groove!  Results were as follows:

2nd Place – Jonah LeFevre, Tucker Cornette, Lance Veeser, Hayden Jeanquart

3rd Place – Alex Buhr

4th Place – Eastin Micholichek, Emma Cornette, Clark LeFevre, Trevin Veeser

5th Place – Keny Lynch, Logan Motquin, Jerek Valley

 

 

Bucks beat Magic

It has been more than a month since the Milwaukee Bucks last lost after beating the Orlando Magic 110-101 for its 15th straight victory. 

 

A big reason why is Giannis Antetokounmpo, who had yet another double-double with 32 points and 15 rebounds. Khris Middleton scored 20 points as four other Bucks players other than Antetokounmpo scored in double figures. 

 

The Bucks are back in action Wednesday to host the New Orleans Pelicans.

Phoenix complete road swing Tuesday

The Green Bay Phoenix men's basketball team has one more game on the road before they can back home, playing tonight in Orlando against Central Florida.

 

The Phoenix are 1-2 on the trip so far, beating Montana State before losing to Xavier and Eastern Illinois. The Golden Knights enter the matchup winners of their last three contests, including a win over Pepperdine. A 7 p.m. tip tonight, the Phoenix will head back to Green Bay for its first game at the Resch Center Saturday when it hosts Evansville.

Wrestling recap: Southern Door wins pair

The Southern Door Wrestling 2019-2020 season has begun.  This years' teams consists of Freshman Alec Guilette, Jonas Jandrin, Cody Nellis, Jacob Zettle, Christian Counard, Reese Vanryzin and Ethan Rouer.  Sophomores Austin Farley, Dylan Wessel, Thomas Grosbeier, Shaun Tooley, Josh Ditello, Riley Phillips and Brodie Overbeck.  Juniors Austin Falish, Griffin Slezewski, Kyle Conard, Katelyn LeCloux, Brad Skippon, Brady Tooley, Drew DeFere and Grant Englebert.  Our only returning senior is Blake Jensen, who wrestled part of last season, and is joined by first year senior Ben Slezewski and exchange student Corentin Valette.

We are a young team again this year but with some valuable experience.  We have two returning state place winners with Grant Englebert (5th last year) and Griffin Slezewski 6th in 2018.  We also have two returning sectional qualifiers in Austin Falish and Kyle Conard.  Because we have been young the past couple years our Juniors and Sophomores have a lot of varsity time.  I expect the freshman are also going to make an impact this season.

Saturday we wrestled at the Schoenherr Duals in Stratford.  For several wrestlers this was their first high school competition and for some the first time ever wrestling.  No better way to let you know just how you stand than by wrestling a perennial power like Stratford (State runner up last year).  Like most seasons our new comers, and the team as a whole, will take some losses early in the season as we gain experience.  That said, I feel all of our returning wrestlers showed improvement from last season which was good to see.  We ended the day 2-3 as a team.  Not bad considering we were missing 10 wrestlers for various reasons.  We also moved wrestlers in an out of the line up to get as many close matches as possible.  As coaches we were able to see some of the techniques we've been working on pay off and some areas we need to re-emphasize.  We were also able to see the heart and determination this group has.

SD dual scores were as follows:
SD 36 Watoma Wild Rose 24
SD 28 Barron 51
SD 42 Crandon 30
SD 6 Stratford 58
SD 36 Phillips 39

Top individual finishers were Kyle Conard and Brodie Overbeck both placing second.

Team results were as follows:
Stratford 5-0
Phillips 4-1
Barron 3-2
SD 2-3
Wautoma Wild Rose 1-4
Crandon 0-5

Next Saturday the Varsity heads to Bayport for the "Battle on the Bay" and JV head to Luxemburg.  Bayport is another measuring stick as it is one of the toughest tournaments in the state.  Luxemburg is a tough JV tournament that can provide the mat time needed to develop skills.  Already looking forward to both tournaments.

Luxemburg-Casco boys basketball set for non-conference game

The only varsity game on the schedule in local high school athletics has the Luxemburg-Casco boys' basketball team playing the role of host this evening.

 

The Spartans are back in action for the first time in a week after they beat Green Bay East at home last week 89-57. Ryan Robillard nearly had a double-double in the game, scoring 29 points while collecting nine rebounds. The Tritons are coming off a 73-59 loss to Lourdes Academy last Tuesday.

 

Tip off is set for 7:15 p.m. with junior varsity games preceding it.

Packers keep pace in NFC North with win

It was not the prettiest win, but it allows the Green Bay Packers to remain ahead of the rest of the NFC North after beating the Washington Redskins 20-15.

 

It looked like it was going to be clear sailing the whole afternoon after the first quarter as Aaron Jones scored on a four-yard run and Aaron Rodgers found Robert Tonyan in the endzone to stake the Packers to a 14-0 lead. The Redskins would limit the Packers to just a pair of field goals the rest of the day. The Redskins scored touchdowns in the second and fourth quarters thanks to the legs of Adrian Peterson and the arm of Dwayne Haskins. They failed on an extra point and a two point conversion to keep the game out of reach for the Redskins.

 

The Packers hold a one game advantage over the Minnesota Vikings and a three game advantage over the Chicago Bears, who come to town next. The Vikings and Lions will also have a hand in the Packers fate with games the final two weeks of the year.

Badgers earn Rose Bowl bid

For the fourth time in the last decade, the Wisconsin Badgers will stop and smell the roses before concluding its football season.

 

The Rose Bowl serves as a nice consolation prize for the Badgers after falling to College Football Playoff participant Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship game on Saturday. The Badgers will face Oregon after they beat Utah in the Pac 12 Championship game last Friday. The traditional Big Ten/Pac 12 matchup featured the two teams in a 45-38 Ducks victory in 2012. The Badgers hope to get their first Rose Bowl victory since they won two straight Rose Bowls in 1999 against UCLA and 2000 against Stanford. 

 

The New Year's Day bowl kicks off at 4 p.m.

Bucks look to continue hot start

The Milwaukee Bucks look to continue their hot start to the season when they host the Orlando Magic Monday night.

 

The Bucks won their last time out, finishing their season sweep of the Los Angeles Lakers with a commanding 119-91 victory. The Magic are on a four-game winning streak entering the matchup. The two teams have already faced each other once this season with the Bucks capturing the win 123-91.

 

Tip off is set for 7 p.m.

Wrestling recap: Kewaunee top finisher at Papermaker

All wrestling teams in Door and Kewaunee Counties had great days on the mat in three different locations.

 

Luxemburg-Casco went 4-1 in their day of duals, topping Sheboygan Falls 78-3, Green Bay Preble 61-15, Oshkosh West 57-23, and Port Washington 46-25. It lost to Bay Port 45-32.

 

Kewaunee took 9th in the Papermaker Invitational with Jack Severin and Logan Steinhorst each taking second place in their weight classes. Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol came in seven places behind Kewaunee. 

Girls' basketball round-up: Southern Door soars past Oconto

The Southern Door Eagles gave the Oconto Blue Devils its first loss of the season in local girls' basketball action on Saturday.

 

The Eagles jumped all over the Blue Devils in the first half, outscoring their opponents 46-18. Nicole Norton led all scorers with 22 points, followed by 16 by Kendra Dantoin and Hailey Shimon adding 12 points.  

 

 

Phoenix drop pair of games

It was a tough pair of games for Green Bay Phoenix basketball fans Saturday afternoon as both teams lost.

 

In Green Bay, the women's team held a double-advantage over #16 DePaul, only see the Blue Demons go on a 14-2 run to close the third quarter to steal the momentum from the Phoenix. The Phoenix ended up losing the game 76-65. The tide turned when Caitlyn Hibner went out with a head injury late in the third quarter. Frankie Wurtz led the Phoenix with 25 points. 

 

The men's team were in Charleston, Ill. for their game,  losing to Eastern Illinois 93-80. Coach Linc Darner did not even make it until the end of the first half, ejected with a couple minutes to go in the opening frame after receiving his second technical for arguing calls. JayQuan McCloud led the Phoenix with 17 points.

Door County United fourth at Plymouth Swim meet

The Door County United swim team finished in the top half of a tough field at the Plymouth Invitational Saturday.

 

Scoring 305 points,  Brock Aune was one of the top swimmers for DCU, winning the 100 breast stroke, finishing second in the 50 freestyle  and part of the 3rd place finishing 200 meter freestyle relay.

Wisconsin's upset bid foiled

The Wisconsin Badgers may have done enough to shake up the College Football Playoff, but it was not enough to top Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship game, losing 34-21 in Indianapolis.

 

The Badgers got out to a 21-7 first half lead thanks to Jonathan Taylor's opening drive touchdown run and a pair of rushing scores by Jack Coan. It was all Buckeyes in the second half, however with Buckeyes quarterback throwing for all three of his touchdowns including the eventual game winner in the third quarter.

 

In the loss, Taylor became the fastest rusher in college football history to 6,000 yards, rushing for 148 yards on 20 carries. The Badgers now wait to find out where their postseason will take them.

Badgers need upset to win Big Ten football title

The University of Wisconsin football team is a 16.5 point underdog in Saturday’s Big Ten Championship Game against Ohio State at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The Badgers and Buckeyes met in Columbus earlier in the year with Ohio State cruising to a 38-7 victory. For the Badgers to get revenge and pull an upset, they’ll have to learn lessons from two Big Ten East teams. Michigan was able to score 27 against the nation’s second-best defense last week. Most of that came in the first half and the Wolverines actually left some points on the table. Jim Harbaugh kicked a field goal on fourth-and-five in the red zone in a controversial decision just before halftime. Michigan quarterback Shea Patterson lost a fumble near the 10-yard line on the drive prior to that. That is a significant improvement over what the Badgers were able to generate against Ohio State.


The other lesson comes from Penn State. The Nittany Lions led early against Ohio State and, although the game ended up being a two-score affair, it was as close as a team has come to upending the undefeated Scarlet and Gray. Penn State is the only team to hold Ohio State to under 30 points this year. Wisconsin has had a formidable defense all season. They have the personnel to duplicate Penn State’s successful scheme. 

 

Sevastopol girls still looking for first win

The Sevastopol High School girls basketball team was defeated by Peshtigo Friday, 54-34. They are still looking for the first win of the 2019-20 season. The Pioneers have a great chance to change that coming up Thursday when they host NE Wisconsin Christian Home School. The NEWHC Athletic Association fields teams in track and field, volleyball, cross country, and basketball from fifth grade and up. They do not play a regular schedule though. The game, set for Thursday, will be Christian Home School’s first contest of the season.

Kewaunee girls dominate rival

The Kewaunee High School girls basketball team defeated rival Algoma 61-33 on the shores of Lake Michigan Friday night. Kewaunee put in a complete 36-minute effort. The Storm led by 14 points at half and would not have needed another basket to secure the victory. The tenacious Kewaunee defense yielded only eleven points after the break to the Wolves.


The leading scorers for Kewaunee were Mackenzie Tlachac, who tickled the twine for 26, and Katie Metzler with 12 points. Algoma had two players with nine points apiece, Hanna Wiese and Sydney Zimmerman. Kewaunee plays at Gibraltar on Thursday. Algoma also gets a six day break before taking the court at home against NEW Lutheran.

 

Sitte dazzles in Gibraltar victory

The Gibraltar High School girls basketball team improved to 3-1 on the young season Friday night taming the Brillion Lions 66-60. It was the best offensive performance of the campaign for Gibraltar so far with Abbigael Sitte leading the way. She had 27 points, five rebounds, and seven steals before she was knocked out of the contest due to foul trouble. All of that production was accomplished in only 27 minutes on the court. Sage Krause added 13 points for the Vikings.


Gibraltar trailed at halftime before exploding for 43 second half points. Gibraltar hosts undefeated Kewaunee on Thursday night.

 

Sturgeon Bay girls even conference record

The Sturgeon Bay High School girls basketball team improved to 2-3 overall and 1-1 in the Packerland Conference with a victory Friday night. The Clippers snuck by NEW Lutheran 39-37 on the road in Green Bay. Sturgeon Bay raced out to a 24-15 halftime lead and had to hold on down the stretch. 


The Clippers were defined by the performance of Sarah Bridenhagen. She contributed 17 of the team’s 39 points. No other player registered more than six for Sturgeon Bay. Bridenhagen was matched on the other side by NEW Lutheran’s Bailey Scholz who also notched 17 points.


The Clippers return to the court on Tuesday against winless Green Bay West. The Wildcats have already lost to a Packerland squad. They fell to Algoma 46-43 on November 30th.

The Green Bay Phoenix men's basketball team made a tough Xavier Musketeers sweat during its Wednesday night matchup but cooled down in the stretch in its 84-71 loss in Cincinnati.

The size of the Musketeers eventually wore down the Phoenix, who scored 40 of its 84 points in the paint and collected just shy 30 inside the paint. JayQuan McCloud added 15 points for the Phoenix, which head to Eastern Illinois this weekend to play the Panthers.

More offense, same result for Sevastopol girls

After putting up just 18 points in their opening game, the Sevastopol High School girls basketball team notched a respectable 36 at home against Oconto Tuesday night.

Kewaunee girls basketball bolts past Sturgeon Bay

The Kewaunee High School girls basketball team lived up to the Storm moniker Tuesday night, bolting past Sturgeon Bay 66-22. It was both the highest point total of the young season for Kewaunee and their best defensive effort. Working in the Storm's favor was the fact that Sturgeon Bay also had a game Monday against Menominee from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. 


Kewaunee improves to 3-0 heading into Friday's rivalry game against Algoma. Sturgeon Bay is 1-3 and travels to NEW Lutheran Friday.

 

Southern Door girls, boys in action Tuesday

The Southern Door High School girls basketball team could not find lift off in Tuesday night's extra frame against NEW Lutheran at home. The Eagles allowed the road squad to win its first contest of the season in overtime, 64-55. The girls are back on the court Saturday evening at Oconto. The Blue Devils picked up a win in their first Packerland game Tuesday, beating Sevastopol.


With the girls team home, the boys had to travel to Denmark to matchup with the Vikings. It was Southern Door's first game of the year while Denmark already had a win to its name and that could have proven the difference in a close contest late. Denmark knocked off Southern Door, 65-62. Overall, very similar games for both the boys and girls squads. The Southern Door boys travels to NEW Lutheran Thursday night.

 

Soaring Bucks at struggling Pistons Wednesday

The Milwaukee Bucks are riding a 12-game winning streak into Little Caesars Arena in Detroit Wednesday night. The team's record is up to 18-3, three games clear of a five-team log jam for second place in the Eastern Conference. Both the Bucks and the Pistons won their last game handily. Milwaukee torched the last-place New York Knicks, 132-88, Monday. Last night, the Pistons rackey-tacked Cleveland 127-94. 


Detroit has been slowed this year due to injuries to star forward Blake Griffin. Even in Tuesday's win, Griffin was on the floor for only 23 minutes. Without Griffin at full strength it is hard to imagine that the Pistons have enough fire power to hang with Milwaukee's dynamic offense. The Bucks enter the game averaging 121 points per game.

 

Wisconsin men in ACC/Big Ten Challenge

The University of Wisconsin men's basketball team is back on the court Wednesday taking part in the 2019 ACC/Big Ten Challenge at NC State. After eight games between Monday and Tuesday, the conferences both have four wins. Last year's event ended in a 7-7 tie so this is nothing new for what many consider the two best conferences in college basketball. Because it is so close, the Wisconsin game may decide the result of the overall challenge. 


Wisconsin plays great defense, holding most of its opponents this year under 60 points. The problem has been on offense. That offense looked particularly stagnant last week in the Legends Classic when the Badgers dropped two games. Wisconsin will need to find improved ball movement if it hopes to steal a road game against the Wolfpack.

Brewers roster makeover continues

The overhaul of the Milwaukee Brewers took even more shape when the team opted against offering contracts to five players that were arbitration-eligible.

 

While they tendered contracts to Brent Suter, Ben Gamel, Josh Hader, and Corey Knebel, the Brewers did not do the same for Tyler Saladino, Travis Shaw, Jimmy Nelson, Alex Claudio, and Junior Guerra.

Wisconsin football wins Paul Bunyan's axe

One of the most coveted trophies in college football is heading back to Madison after the University of Wisconsin Badgers defeated Minnesota, 38-17, on Saturday evening. The elements were not a factor for the Badgers as they had a balanced offensive attack with many big plays through the air to keep Minnesota's defense guessing during the game. Quarterback Jack Coan was 15-22 for 280 yards and two touchdowns. Running back Jonathan Taylor, by comparison, scampered for 76 yards with two scores. As a team, the Badgers ran for 173.


Wisconsin's dynamic passing attack and just the right amount of trick plays helped the Badgers turn a close game at halftime into a runaway. The Badgers defense was good, forcing two turnovers that turned into points, and allowing 76 yards total on the ground. 


Not only does Wisconsin get Paul Bunyan's axe, they win the Big Ten West. That sets up a rematch against Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship Game Saturday. Wisconsin lost big in the regular-season at Columbus. The Buckeyes are undefeated and made it look easy against Michigan on the road this weekend. Ohio State put 56 points against the Wolverines. A Wisconsin victory would be an upset.

Both Phoenix teams earn big wins

The Green Bay Phoenix men's and women's teams earned big wins Saturday night to close out their Thanksgiving weekend slates.

Lyndsey Robson scored 13 points in  the win, but none bigger than her buzzer-beating half-court shot to force the game into the extra stanza. Caitlyn Hibner led all scorers with 30 points.

 

Southeast of the women's team's heroics, the Phoenix team blew past Montana State 98-72 in Bozeman. Freshman Amari Davis continued his special start to the season, scoring 28 points and collecting seven rebounds in his first start of the season. JayQuan McCloud, Cody Schwartz, Kam Hankerson, and Josh McNair each scored in double figures in the win.
