MARSHFIELD – With the game on the line, the Marshfield girls basketball team clamped down on defense and was able to pull out another win.

Leading by four points with 5½ minutes to go, the Tigers outscored Wausau Newman Catholic 15-6 the rest of the way to win 65-52 to capture the title its home Marshfield Tiger Girls Basketball Invitational on Wednesday afternoon at the Marshfield High School Fieldhouse.

Meg Bryan hit her fourth 3-pointer of the game to start the run that included two free throws each from reserve guards Sara Dasler and Jenny Scheppler, and late layups by backups Dani Bender and Ana Jensen.

Marshfield went 2-0 at the tournament to improve to 9-1 this season. Newman Catholic is now 3-6, losing to Rhinelander on Tuesday as well. Hudson pounded Rhinelander 59-38 in the other game Wednesday as both of those teams finished 1-1.

“We played with the lead for the whole game, which was a good thing, but they weren’t a team that was going to go away,” Marshfield coach Heidi Michaelis said. “With their offense, they lull you. You play defense for 45 seconds and then they find a way to come clean or make a 3. That’s a killer for you on defense. We found a way to get a win and that was our goal, two wins in two days, and we did that.”

Marshfield scored the first four points of the game and never trailed, but it was far from easy for the Tigers.

Newman Catholic made 12 of 23 shots from 3-point range, which included 5-for-7 from Lauren Fech and 4-for-8 from Taylor Jankowski, to keep it close throughout.

Marshfield led by as much as nine in the first half and took a 29-22 lead into halftime after a late 3-pointer for McKayla Scheuer. The senior guard made 4 of 6 shots from long range and finished with 15 points.

A Fech 3-pointer capped a 6-2 run by the Cardinals to start the second half and cut the lead to three.

After Marshfield went back up by seven after two baskets from Ema Fehrenbach, who led the Tigers with 18 points and nine rebounds, Newman got it down to two at 44-42 with 7:44 left after a rebound and basket by Signe Fronek.

Marshfield didn’t flinch and maintained its lead. Another 3-pointer from Jankowski cut the Tigers’ lead to 50-46, but the Cardinals only made two of their final eight shot attempts as Marshfield pulled away.

“They did a good job on Ema in the first half and in the second half, McKayla didn’t score as much, but we were able to get it into Ema,” Michaelis said. “Everyone played, everyone scored, so that was good for those kids and everyone was happy.”

The Tigers return to action Tuesday at Chippewa Falls.

Tigers 65, Cardinals 52
Newman Catholic 22 30 – 52

MARSHFIELD – The Marshfield girls basketball team found itself in another defensive battle, but unlike last week’s game against Bay Port, the Tigers were able to find a way to pull it out.

Despite shooting 25 percent (16 of 64) from the field, Marshfield used gritty defense and just enough made free throws to down undefeated Hudson 45-42 on Tuesday night as part of the 7th Annual Marshfield Tiger Girls Basketball Invitational.

Marshfield made four of five free throws over the final 1:16 in the extra period to pull out the victory and improve to 8-1 this season. Hudson is now 6-1.

Sophomore center Hannah Meverden had 12 points and nine rebounds, and Maddie Nikolai added 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Tigers. Meverden was 6 of 13 from the field while the rest of the team made just 10 of 51 shots.

“You shoot 25 percent, but you find a way to win, it shows a lot of mental toughness on our kids’ part,” Marshfield coach Heidi Michaelis said. “There were a lot of times where they were frustrated, but I thought throughout the game, defensively, we really played solid. I thought we rebounded fairly well. When things weren’t going well on the offensive end, they played tough throughout on the other end, and that’s what we have to do in games like this.”

The lead changed hands four times in the first half as Marshfield took an 18-15 lead into the break as it forced 10 turnovers.

The Tigers took a 28-23 lead after a three-point play by Ema Fehrenbach and two free throws from Nikolai and pushed it to six before Hudson stormed back.

A 6-0 run by the Raiders, which included a 3-pointer by Ashley Juza, tied the game with 5:45 to go.

A basket by Shayla Wallin put Hudson up with 50 seconds to go before McKayla Scheuer hit a leaner from the right side with 27 seconds left to tie it back up for the Tigers. The teams combined for three turnovers in the final seconds and it went to overtime.

Nikolai and Sara Dasler each made two free throws to put Marshfield up by four with 25 second left.

After a basket by Juza, Scheuer made one of two at the line and Juza’s 3-pointer to tie it at the buzzer missed everything.

“There’s going to be games when they don’t shoot well, that’s reality,” Michaelis said. “Most of the time it’s not going to be Meg (Bryan), Scheuer and Ema all at the same time, but tonight it was. But Ema was a really good passer tonight, she had five assists, and made people around her better. You can’t hang your head, you just have to play hard.

“I’m proud of the kids. Dani (Bender) went in for a few minutes and gave us energy on the defensive end, you had Sara Dasler who sat there a lot in the second half and came in there and made two free throws. It’s a good team win. Coming off a loss, another one would be hard to swallow, so it was a good win for us.”

Hudson will take on Rhinelander at 1:30 p.m. and Marshfield plays Wausau Newman Catholic at 3:15 p.m. on Wednesday as the tournament concludes. The Marshfield game will be broadcast on WDLB-AM 1450 and wdlbwosq.com.

Abbotsford (3-4) led 27-22 at halftime before Stratford rallied to pull out the victory. The Tigers shot just 34 percent from the field, but made six 3-pointers and were 12 of 15 at the free throw line.

MARSHFIELD – The Marshfield wrestling team is building for the future. Not necessarily next year or the year after, but for the immediate future at the big tournaments and matches at the end of this season.

With only three seniors on the roster and as many as seven freshmen in the lineup at any given time, the Tigers are trying to find their legs heading into the final two months of the season, and the Wisconsin Valley Conference and WIAA tournaments that are coming in February.

Second-year head coach Jackson Hein said he is concentrating on the fundamentals as he tries to build an inexperience squad into a group that could be reckoned with at the end of the year when the stakes are high.

“We don’t show them a lot of confusing stuff, not a lot of crazy things,” Hein said. “It’s basic stuff and I want them to be really good at it. I could care less about our age, it’s about making changes every day in practice and being ready to battle.”

The Tigers are looking for a consistent lineup that doesn’t have a whole lot of varsity experience.

Josh Lang, a fourth-place finisher at the WIAA state tournament last year at 195 pounds, is out with an injury suffered during the football season. Gerardo Zapet (220), Kyle Krizan (170), and Felipe Trejo (182) are the only other seniors on the roster, and they aren’t always in the varsity lineup.

Sophomore Alex Brost (152), and juniors Conner Peterson (182) and Anthony Kanable (132) are the only other wrestlers with varsity time under their belts for the Tigers.

So far this season, the Tigers have had mixed results.

Both of Marshfield’s Wisconsin Valley Conference duals came down to the wire, but the Tigers lost the final match in each to start the season 0-2.

Freshman Bentley Schwanebeck-Ostermann won his first varsity tournament, taking the 145-pound championship at the Richland Center Invitational on Dec. 19; Nolan Hertel was a perfect 5-0 at 138 pounds at the Stoughton Duals on Dec. 5 and followed that up by going 3-1 at the Neenah Duals on Dec. 12; and Anthony Kanable has been strong as he finished second at Richland Center and was also 3-1 at Neenah.

Kanable toppled Fennimore’s Alston Nutter, who won the Division 3 120-pound state championship last season and finished 50-1, at the Stoughton tournament.

Caden Dennee (106), Tanner Kanable (113), Kevin Cassidy (120), Caden Pearce (126) and Sam Mitchell (160) are among the many freshmen that have seen varsity action, and sophomores Brandon Koran (285) and Payton Young (170) have been thrown in the fray as well.

“We’re getting there, we’re not there yet,” Hein said. “Every match they get more experience, which is helping me. We have a really tough schedule. We’ve had Stoughton, Stratford, a lot of tough teams. We’re on the right track.”

The Tigers head into the Bi-State Tournament on Dec. 29-30 at La Crosse ready to gain even more experience against one of the best invitational fields of the season in Wisconsin.

“Some of the weight classes are better than the state tournament,” Hein said. “There are so many wrestlers that are ready to compete.”
