With two of Menominee Indian’s best players on the bench with four fouls, the Bonduel boys basketball team made its run.

Trailing by six points, the Bears settled things down and got back to their game plan, finishing the game on a 31-8 run for a 69-54 victory at home Friday night.

“I thought we battled and played tough basketball, and then followed our game plan,” Bonduel head coach Duke Copp said.

With the game tied, Menominee Indian’s Ron Frechette and Warren Wilber were called for fouls, sending them to the bench in a span of 10 seconds. But the Eagles jumped ahead by six points, anyway, via their fast-break offense.

Sophomore Parker Bohm scored seven of his team’s next nine points to pull Bonduel within one before Bryce Engel hit a corner 3 to give the hosts the lead for good.

“He hit that huge 3, and you could tell all the kids loved that,” Copp said. “That’s exciting.”

“Penalty kill unit did a hell of a job,” Shawano head coach Garrett Smith said. “They definitely were doing a fairly good job of holding their positions, and when we got a chance, got it out of the zone and we were able to get some time.”

Shawano managed to get called for six penalties in the final period, putting extra pressure on the defense and Brendan Chapman, who posted 23 saves on the night, scoring his first shutout of the season.

Chapman had six saves in the final period with the help of defensemen Bryce Gagnow and Mason Dingeldein, along with wings Trevor Krueger and Wyatt Block.

Packers steel themselves for playoff push

With the proverbial table duly cleared by the Green Bay Packers last Sunday night, the stakes are raised as the hour draws near for a few racks of playoff nine-ball.

The Packers completed their sharpest season-ending finish since 1941, winning their last six games to claim their fifth NFC North crown in the last 6 years.

As coach Mike McCarthy noted throughout the Packers’ 6-0 stretch run, it’s a pointless undertaking to talk playoffs until you reach the 10-win mark. Now, after knocking off Detroit 31-24 to finish 10-6, playoff confabs are officially in bounds – even if their eighth straight postseason appearance was assured earlier in the day when the New York Giants eliminated Washington.

Experience pays off down stretch for Shawano


Leader Photo by Chris Caporale Shawano Community High School senior Tyrell Hesse gathers the ball in the paint for a layup in overtime that would put the Hawks ahead for good in Tuesday’s 68-61 home victory over Seymour.

Leader Photo by Chris Caporale Shawano Community High School juniors Dakota Maltbey (50) and Kaden Richards (1) close in on Seymour’s Nik Yaeger early in Shawano’s 68-61 victory Tuesday.

Just minutes after turning the ball over in the closing seconds of regulation, Shawano senior Josh Mueller got his redemption.

Mueller slid down to the weak-side corner and drilled an open 3-pointer, his only field goal of the game, to score the first points of Shawano’s 68-61 overtime victory over Seymour at home Tuesday.

The Hawks outscored Seymour 19-12 in the extra period.

“That was a very big shot for him, especially coming off the turnover that he had to end the regulation period there, so it was nice to see him shoot with confidence,” Shawano head coach Dave Ambrosius said.
“But he’s a senior. He’s been through this before. He knows what this environment is like. He stepped up and hit an open shot, which is everything we ask him to do.”
