MARSHFIELD – The Marshfield boys basketball team’s relentless defensive pressure and efficient offense helped the Tigers dominate from the outset and roll to a 61-27 win over Wausau West in a Wisconsin Valley Conference game Tuesday night at Marshfield High School.

The Tigers were happy to be back on their home court after playing their first four games on the road and improve to 3-2 overall and 2-1 in the Wisconsin Valley Conference. West drops to 2-5 and 0-3 in the Valley.

Sophomore Luke Zuiker had five steals and 17 points to lead Marshfield, which shot nearly 50 percent (27-for-56) from the field and saw nine different players score in the game.

Marshfield forced 17 turnovers and held the Warriors to 10 of 33 shooting in the victory.

“I’ve been pleased with the effort and intensity that they’ve brought,” Marshfield coach Craig Michaelis said. “What you saw tonight, how hard they played, is the way they’ve been playing in practice. I’m not surprised by it. That’s what it’s going to take night in and night out. It’s too tough of a conference to come out and give a subpar effort. If you do that, you lose games.

“I’m proud of what we did and I’m encouraged because I think this is a team that can continue to get better.”

Marshfield opened the game with a 10-4 run sparked by two baskets by Zuiker and two more, including a 3-pointer, by Luke Olson. Elliot Ashbeck had five points and Zuiker scored off an Ashbeck steal at the buzzer to push the Tigers lead to 17-6 after the first quarter.

West scored the first hoop of the second quarter but the Tigers responded with a 12-2 run to open up a 19-point lead and led by double digits the rest of the way.

Olson hit another 3-pointer and had a three-point play in the third quarter, and Zuiker scored eight points in the period as Marshfield outscored West 25-8 to put the game away. Zuiker had three steals that resulted in layups in the quarter as the Tigers’ defense and energy were top-notch.

“We played really hard and we have team chemistry out there,” Zuiker said. “It’s what coach talks about every day in practice. Our defense will translate to our offense. It’s really what we want to happen.”

The Tigers’ depth also came into play. All 13 players saw plenty of action Tuesday, with the starters sitting out the entire fourth quarter. It didn’t matter much as Marshfield held West without a basket from the field in the quarter.

“We can go 13 deep any night,” Zuiker said. “It’s hard to not have 6-9 and 7-feet (post players) like we did last year, but the intensity and the chemistry we have, it’s a lot better to be able to go 13 deep, I think.

“We’re getting better every day. Last Friday was tough losing at SPASH in a close game. We’re young and we need the experience. We don’t have a lot of that yet.”

Marshfield will play in the Big Rivers-Wisconsin Valley Conference Challenge next week at Eau Claire North. The Tigers play Eau Claire Memorial on Wednesday and Chippewa Falls on Thursday.

ANTIGO – Alexis Straughan had her second shutout in net for the Marshfield girls hockey team as it rolled to a 7-0 win over Northern Edge (Antigo-Rhinelander co-op) on Tuesday night.

The Tigers, who lost their last two games, improve to 4-3 overall and 2-2 in the Great Northern Conference, while Northern Edge falls to 0-3 overall and in the conference.

“It was a good team effort and Nicole Karl stepped up big in the forward role, she had a real nice game,” Marshfield coach Nate Sparbel said. “Also, Paige Johnson was solid again at defense and freshman Alexis Straughan had the shut out in the net for her second one of the year.”

Paige Johnson netted a hat trick with three goals and added an assist for the Tigers. Nicole Karl scored twice and had two assists, and Charlotte Tierney and Emily Wolfe scored Marshfield’s other two goals. Tori Esser, Wolfe and Morgan Larson had assists.

Straughan needed to make just eight saves to earn the shutout as the Tigers’ defense was superb.

Northern Edge goalie Sophie Schmidt made 46 saves.

Taylor Varsho scores 20 points in return to court as Marshfield girls basketball knocks off Stevens Point

MARSHFIELD – Marshfield senior Taylor Varsho returned the game action Friday for the first time this season following a knee injury last March and looked like she had never left.

Varsho scored 20 points and freshman Caitlin Michaelis added 18 points to lead the Tigers to a 62-52 win over Stevens Point Area Senior High, handing the Panthers their first loss of the season on Friday night at Marshfield High School.

Varsho had knee surgery following an injury during practice prior to the Tigers’ WIAA Division 1 sectional semifinal last March and missed out on the softball season last spring and tennis season this fall while rehabbing. She practiced with the team this season but did not see any game action until Friday and made the most of it.

She scored on a post-up move the first time she shot the ball 55 seconds into the game and scored six points in the first quarter as the Tigers built a 12-10 lead.

Varsho’s three-point play and back-to-back 3-pointers by Michaelis capped a 15-0 run by Marshfield and gave them a 25-10 lead with 4:26 to go in the second quarter. The Tigers led by double digits the rest of the way.

Michaelis hit another 3-pointer and Courtney Bauer scored two of her nine points just before the buzzer to put the Tigers up 34-18 at halftime.

“I feel awesome,” Varsho said, giving credit to all of her doctors and coaches. “My leg feels good. We are young. People look at that and say, ‘Oh they’re not going to be very good, but they’ve got another thing coming. Those freshmen are definitely an asset to our team. Our No. 1 goal is to make it to state this year. It is my last year, and that is everyone’s No. 1 goal.”

The Tigers looked crisp in the first half, making 14 of 21 shots from the field, while holding SPASh to 6 of 26 shooting. Playing three point-guard types at times in Varsho, Michaelis and Darian Molter, along with post players Bauer and Tiffany Stargardt gives Marshfield a lot of options on the offensive end.

“Offensively, we have so many people that can score and so many weapons that we can hurt people in so many different ways,” Marshfield coach Heidi Michaelis said. “If we take care of the ball and can make that extra pass, this is what we can look like.

Varsho hit three 3-pointers in third and Michaelis and Leah Ripp each added another as the Tigers made 7 of 12 shots and 5 of 7 from long range to build a 53-28 lead.

SPASH outscored the Tigers 20-9 in the fourth quarter but only got as close as 10 at the end of the game when Savannah Soik scored eight points in the final 1:17.

“We didn’t finish the game strong, obviously, and that’s what I’m disappointed in,” Heidi Michaelis said. “That’s kind of what you get with a young team. They changed defenses and we didn’t adjust to it. To our credit, we had a big enough lead that we could kind of figure it out as we went. We got killed on the boards (34-19) and that kills me.”

For Varsho, her return couldn’t have gone much better.

“After eight months, it’s been one of the longest journeys ever,” Varsho said. “It felt great to get my feet wet in the water again and just be out there and play with my team again. It was definitely hard to be on the bench for the whole summer and the first three games. I got out there and did my best and it was good to get a big ‘W’ in our first conference game.”

Marshfield (3-1, 1-0 Wisconsin Valley Conference) plays at Wausau West on Tuesday.
