ASHWAUBENON – The Marshfield girls soccer team fought back from a three-goal deficit to make a game of it, but couldn’t get the tie goal and lost a nonconference game to Ashwaubenon 4-3 on Friday night.

Ashwaubenon scored 3:40 into the game before Olivia Haessly tied the game for the Tigers.

The Jaguars pushed across two more goals before halftime and took a 4-1 lead on an own goal 6:09 into the second half.

Andrea Carolfi scored 3 minutes later and Haessly netted another goal in the 61st minute for the Tigers, ending the scoring.

“We connected so many passes tonight and controlled the game for the most part and really played a nice complete game tonight,” Marshfield coach Steve Lindner said. “The defense played a strong game lead by McKayla Scheuer, Patty Bloczynski, Nicole Simon, Emily Critelli and Mickala Brown.

“On offense we created more opportunities and were the aggressor for the majority of the game. Once were were pushed around physically on the field the girls responded and decided they were going to be the aggressor and played an outstanding game.”

Marshfield (3-10) hosts Wausau East at 4 p.m. Tuesday at Griese Park.

Hot bats, strong pitching staff has Stratford softball off to great start

Posted on 28 April 2016 by paul

STRATFORD – Having an experienced, top-level pitcher in high school softball is something every team seeks. Having two is a luxury not many teams can claim.

The Stratford softball team is one that can, and the Tigers have been riding the arms of Lorrie Luepke and Kiana Weiler to an impressive start to their season.

Following Tuesday’s win at Pittsville, Stratford is 6-2 and a perfect 4-0 in the Marawood Conference South Division as it searches for another conference title.

“They are so supportive of one another,” said Stratford coach Mandy Pankratz, who led the Tigers to a share of the Marawood South championship last year with Marathon. “They are such team players and know how important it is for both to get innings. Sometimes people get selfish, but that’s not the case with them.

“They’ve been doing a nice job and are getting better locating their pitches. They love to work and love to pitch.”

Both hurlers are 3-1 on the mound for the Tigers, and have allowed seven hits or less in all but one start this season.

As is typical in the spring sports season in central Wisconsin, weather has played a role early in the year.

The Tigers have had seven games rescheduled already, including a three-game tournament in Poynette that will be made up May 6-7.

A showdown with Marathon, who is also unbeaten in the Marawood South, was postponed on Monday, leaving the Tigers with a daunting schedule ahead. Starting with a doubleheader Friday against Northland Lutheran, Stratford is scheduled to play nine games in eight days.

“(Monday) we were set to play Marathon up until 3:15 p.m. when another shower came through and then we had to figure out where we were going to practice instead,” Pankratz said. “It’s been tough and hard to keep the kids motivated sometimes. But, hats off to them. Whether we practice inside or outside, they are coming prepared and trying to just get better every day.”

Brittany Bredemann, an all-conference first-team selection last season, has served as the Tigers’ leadoff hitter, setting the table for a lineup that has had double-digits in hits in six of their eight games.

Bredemann has 15 hits in the Tigers’ eight games, getting two or more in all but one contest.

Freshman Macey Kilty has stepped into the No. 2 spot, and with a combination of Luepke, Kaylee Geiger, Sammy Kasier, Casey Kolbeck, Sammy Griesbach, Weiler, and Val Licciardi hitting behind them, Stratford’s offense has been cooking thus far.

“I’m pretty proud of where we are offensively,” Pankratz said. “Against Assumption (on April 22), against a good pitcher, that was one of the best hitting performances (nine runs and 12 hits) we’ve seen in the last couple of years. We are tough 1-through-9.”
