Southern Door keeps within shouting distance of conference lead

The Southern Door High School boys basketball team cruised past NEW Lutheran by 20 points Friday night in Brussels. Southern Door outscored their opponent by an equal ten points each half. The win improves the Eagles’ mark to 7-2 in the conference, a game back of Sturgeon Bay and Kewaunee. Southern Door has games against both those teams later in the season. Ryan Claflin was held to only 15 points but the Eagles made adjustments and Alex Daoust took advantage netting 29, a season high. 


Southern Door visits Oconto on Tuesday.

 


Gibraltar rides Steebs' hot hand to win

The Gibraltar High School boys basketball team picked up their third win of the season Friday night versus Algoma, 77-67. Algoma actually boasted the game-high scorer, Carter Zimmerman had 25 points but the visitors nabbed the victory. Zimmerman dueled with Gibraltar’s Luke Steebs who finished with 22. Steebs was aided by Sam Lindenberg’ 18 and Will Friedenfels who netted 12 points. Four Vikings reached double figures.


Gibraltar is back on the court Monday against Oneida Nation. Algoma visits Kewaunee. The Storm are fresh off their first loss in Packerland Conference play.

 


Sturgeon Bay boys tied for first place

The Sturgeon Bay High School boys basketball team roared out of the gate in front of the home crowd Friday night. The Clippers put up 39 in the first half, on their way to a 74-59 victory over the Kewaunee Storm. Kewaunee had already played a road contest at another top tier Packerland team, Southern Door, earlier in the week. That was a one-point nail biter that may have led to a slow start. It is a potential reason why the defensive intensity just was not there for the Storm at the bell.


Sturgeon Bay was balanced offensively scoring 13 two-point baskets and 11 three-pointers. Jake Schneider had 22 and Gunner Tebon chipped in another 20 points. For Kewaunee, three players made it to double figures. Alex Rohr led the way with 15 points. 


Sturgeon Bay is on the road their next two games. Tuesday, they play at NEW Lutheran in Green Bay. Kewaunee heads home to renew a rivalry with Algoma.

 


Spartans finish off Foxes 65-52 on WBDK

In the final boys' basketball game played in the old L-C gymnasium and broadcast on 96.7 FM WBDK, the Luxemburg-Casco Spartans pulled away late to claim a 65-52 North Eastern Conference victory over the Fox Valley Lutheran Foxes Friday night.  The first half was a see-saw affair that had the Spartans hold a narrow 32-29 lead into halftime.  The Foxes went on a run to take a 42-36 lead with 12:39 left in the second half when L-C coach Tyler Thrune took a time-out.  From that point on, the Spartans outscored the Foxes 29-10 the rest of the way.  The Spartans hit key free throws down the stretch and a harassing 1-3-1 defense that forced turnovers and held the Foxes in check for the majority of the night.  Logan Doell had a huge game with 29 points and Ryan Roblillard added 13 as the Spartans improved to 7-5 overall and 6-4 in the conference.  Fox Valley Lutheran (3-6, 4-8 overall) was led by Josiah Butler who had 16 points.  Luxemburg-Casco will now start a three-game road trip starting next Tuesday in Marinette.  The Spartans will play their first game in the new gymnasium on Thursday, February 6 against Oconto Falls. 


Tigers too much for Lady Spartans

The Luxemburg-Casco Lady Spartans were overmatched Thursday night against the Wrightstown Tigers in a North Eastern Conference girls basketball game.  Wrightstown cruised to a 92-36 victory at home.  Bridget Froehlke led the Tigers with 29 points hitting eight three-pointers.  Ella Diny added 27 points and six rebounds.  The Lady Spartans will now travel to Waupaca to play the Comets on Monday night before returning home to play Fox Valley Lutheran in the last girls’ basketball game in the old gymnasium.  That game will be broadcast on 96.7 FM WBDK as well as the first game in the new gym on Tuesday, February 4 when the Lady Spartans host Clintonville.


Sevastopol boys looks to regroup against Oconto

It has been over a week since the Sevastopol lost to NEWCHAA, but the Pioneers hope to return to the court healthy Friday night at home against Oconto.

 

A sickness that could have dated back to that Saturday loss led to the postponement of a matchup earlier this week. At the same time the Pioneers hope to snap a three-game losing streak overall and grab their first conference victory since January 7th against Algoma. Oconto is 4-4 in the Packerland Conference as they try to snap their only skid in search of its second win in their last five tries.

 

Tip off is set for 7:30 p.m.


Gibraltar travels to Algoma for Packerland boys showdown

The Gibraltar Vikings look to rebound from their loss to Sturgeon Bay earlier this week when they travel to Algoma to face the Wolves Friday night.

 

In their 71-44 loss to Sturgeon Bay, Luke Steebs led the way with 16 points as he continues to lead the team in scoring and assists. Brady Ash is having a strong senior campaign, averaging just over 10 points and 7.5 rebounds a game. The Vikings hope to put some more distance between them and the Wolves, who are 0-8 in conference play but enter the game with some extra confidence after winning their last game against NEWCHAA.

 

Tip off is set for 7:30 p.m.


Lucky 13 for Kewaunee girls

Don’t tell the Kewaunee High School girls basketball team that 13 is an unlucky number. Thursday night the Storm dialed up some rough waters for the visiting Sturgeon Bay Clippers in a 58-35 win. Kewaunee improves to 13-0, 8-0 in the Packerland Conference. 


What has been impressive about the Storm this year, outside of their sterling record, is the ability to adapt to the game being played on any given night. Kewaunee seems just as comfortable winning a 43-29 game against Southern Door as they do streaking towards 80 points offensively like they put up against Sevastopol. That versatility should be an asset come the state playoffs.


Kewaunee returns to the court Monday at Algoma. Sturgeon Bay hosts NEW Lutheran.

 


Gibraltar girls winning streak extends to three

The Gibraltar High School girls basketball team has vaulted into the top half of the Packerland Conference standings after securing their third straight win Thursday night. The Vikings nipped the Algoma Wolves, 51-47, in Fish Creek. 


It was a tale of two halves, Gibraltar led 17-16 at the break before netting 34 in the final 18 minutes. Abbigael Sitte led the way with 17 and Sage Krause added 12 points. Sitte was a bit more economical from the field, making five of 11 attempts. Krause was only 3-17 but was perfect at the free throw line. For the game, Gibraltar was 15-50 from the field, roughly 30 percent.


Gibraltar earns a bit of a vacation as a reward for their recent hot play. They’re off for a full week, returning to the court next Thursday against Sturgeon Bay. Algoma falls to 5-8 overall and has to take on the Kewaunee juggernaut in a rivalry game at home Monday.

 


Pioneers breaks conference losing streak against Oconto

For the first time since the 2014-2015 season, the Sevastopol girls' basketball team got to enter the locker room after a Packerland Conference game with a smile on their face.

 

The Pioneers outscored the Oconto 36-26 in the second half to win the contest 60-51. It had been since a Valentine's Eve game against Sturgeon in 2015 that the Pioneers won a conference matchup. The Pioneers made life difficult for the Blue Devils defensively, holding them to under 28 percent shooting for the game. The Blue Devils did not do much to help their cause from the charity stripe either, making on 19 of its 33 attempts.


Eagles set up for possible wrestling crown after sweep

Next week's dual meet against Kewaunee officially got more interesting after Southern Door swept Peshtigo and Oconto in a pair of dual meets at Sturgeon Bay Thursday night.

 

Southern Door fought off Peshtigo to win 63-12. Brady Tooley pinned Kyle Rupert in just over a minute while Grant Englebert and Drew Defere were able to pick up bonus points in their victories.  Jon LaForce and Kody Klimek picked up pins for the Bulldogs. Southern Door topped Oconto 72-0 with Brodie Overbeck and Cody Nellis picking up pins for the Eagles.

Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol opened up their evening with a 42-0 win over Oconto with Kellen Hacht and Nick West earning pins in the only contested matches of the dual. The team honored all of the wrestlers but gave special recognition to David Condra, the team's only senior.

Luxemburg-Casco Wrestling falls short against Wrightstown

In a battle of #1 vs #2, it was Luxemburg-Casco not being able to string enough victories together to top Wrightstown, losing 40-23.

 

The Spartans were only able to grab five victories from the 14 contested matches. On a positive note, the Spartans were able to get bonus points in those five wins with no wrestler capturing less than a major decision. Luke Shefchik, Reece Worachek, and Lucas Joniaux earned major decisions while Easton Worachek won by technical fall. Kyle Kroll captured his decision by disqualification.

Gibraltar looks to fend off Wolves

The Gibraltar girls' basketball team is sitting in the middle of a crowded Packerland Conference ahead of its matchup with Algoma.

 

The Vikings took their lumps in conference play while star player Abbi Sitte nursed an injury, going 0-5 during that stretch. They have been fighting back strong in recent games, winning their last two. The game is a rematch of a low-scoring affair that saw the Vikings prevail 39-22. Sitte scored 19 points in the game while Maggie Moroney and Sage Krause each added seven. The Vikings defense held the Wolves to just 18 percent shooting from the field with no player scoring more than six points.

 

Tip is set for 7:30 p.m.

Zoe Kuehn leads the Pioneers in scoring and rebounds at around 15 and 7 on the year while Bailey Rikkola is pacing the team in the assists category at just under three a game.

Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol hosts Packerland double dual

Kewaunee is the only Packerland Conference not making the trip to Sturgeon Bay High School Thursday evening as Oconto and Peshtigo make the trip across the bay to battle Southern Door and Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol in high school wrestling.

 

It has been well over a week for both teams since they last competed on the mat with the Clippineers losing to the Eagles 54-21 despite winning the majority of the contested matches. Oconto and Peshtigo have struggled to field full squads in recent years with only five Blue Devils wrestling at January's Manawa Invitational and four Bulldogs getting matches at December's On The Water Classic.

 

The double dual meet has been moved up from its original start time to 6:30 p.m. Tim Kowols and Greg Letter will give updates on the Clippineer duals and possibly full matches during their broadcast of Southern Door wrestling. The matches can be heard on 104.1 WRLU and streamed worldwide at DoorCountyDailyNews.com, DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com, and the DoorCountyDailyNews.com mobile app.

Southern Door travels for Packerland duals on 104.1 WRLU

Southern Door will have a short trip Thursday night as it travels to Sturgeon Bay for a double dual against Peshtigo and Oconto.

 

It has been well over a week for since the Eagles last wrestled on January 14th at Two Rivers in a 45-27 defeat. Oconto and Peshtigo have struggled to field full squads in recent years with only five Blue Devils wrestling at January's Manawa Invitational and four Bulldogs getting matches at December's On The Water Classic. Last year's matchups were lopsided affairs due to forfeits.

 

The double dual meet has been moved up from its original start time to 6:30 p.m. Tim Kowols and Greg Letter will have the call of the Southern Door matches beginning at 6 p.m. with the prematch show followed by first whistle at 6:30 p.m. with Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol matches being called as time permits. The matches can be heard on 104.1 WRLU and streamed worldwide at DoorCountyDailyNews.com, DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com, and the DoorCountyDailyNews.com mobile app.

Sevastopol girls tripped up by Roncalli

The Sevastopol High School girls basketball team was unable to ground the Roncalli Jets Tuesday, falling 50-36. With the defeat, Sevastopol drops to 3-10 on the season and has lost four in a row. The Pioneeers look to get back on the winning track Thursday on the other side of Green Bay. Sevastopol will be at Oconto. The Blue Devils have a 3-5 record in the conference. Sevastopol is still looking for their first win.


Packerland clash lives up to the hype

Tuesday night in Brussels the first and second-place boys basketball teams in the Packerland squared off in what lived up to the hype as a marquee matchup. Kewaunee High School edged Southern Door 44-43. As you can imagine, the box score isn’t the prettiest. Alex Rohr and Tanor Bortolini paced the Storm with 11 and 10 points, respectively. Southern Door star Ryan Claflin was held in check for the most part, netting 21. Alex Daoust added 13. 


Kewaunee remains unbeaten while Southern Door picks up its second loss of the year in the conference dropping the Eagles to third place. Kewaunee’s tough week continues at Sturgeon Bay Friday. Again, first place in the conference is on the line as the Clippers only have one loss against the Storm’s unblemished mark. Southern Door will need some help getting to the top of standings but they do have rematches against Sturgeon Bay and Kewaunee later in the year. The Eagles’ next game comes Friday when they host NEW Lutheran.
