STRATFORD – The Stratford girls basketball team held its own against undefeated Marathon, but the Raiders were able to make just enough free throws to hold off the Tigers for a 57-50 victory in a Marawood Conference South Division game Tuesday at Stratford High School.

Alysha Stieber was 7-for-7 from the free throw line and made two 3-pointers in the second half and finished with 22 points to lead Marathon (6-0, 4-0 Marawood South).

Marathon led 22-19 at halftime and made 12 of 19 at the free throw line in the second half to hold on for the win.

Nine different Stratford players scored with none reaching double figures. Kaylee Hollatz hit two 3-pointers and scored eight points, and six others had six points each for the Tigers (1-5, 1-2 Marawood South).

Stratford hosts Prentice in a nonconference game Friday.

MARSHFIELD – Marshfield scored three unanswered goals in the third period, the final one coming short-handed, and defeated Waupaca 3-2 in a nonconference boys hockey game Tuesday at the Marshfield Youth Ice Arena.

Adam Maki scored 54 seconds in the third period on a power play, Ben Lawyer tied it with a goal at the 4:59 mark, and Ryan Krueger provided the game-winner with a short-handed goal with 7:01 remaining in the game.

A.J. Trierweiler had 29 saves in goal for Marshfield.

“We finally broke through in the third period,” Marshfield coach Eric Bowman said. “Our power-play came through in an important moment of the game, and we gave up no short-handed goals.

“Special teams are important and we took steps in the right direction tonight there. Our team played the brand of hockey we have been looking to establish all season in the third period, and came back from two goals down against a hard-working Waupaca team.”

STEVENS POINT – Stevens Point Area Senior High swept its annual home girls-boys doubleheader against Marshfield on Tuesday night, with the girls winning 62-47 and the boys fighting to a 77-70 victory.

In the girls game, Stevens Point improved to 8-0 this season and 2-0 in the Wisconsin Valley Conference with a strong first half that saw it take a 29-16 lead and move on the win from there.

Marshfield, which falls to 1-3 overall after losing its WVC opener, had 21 turnovers and shot just 36 percent (18 of 49) in the loss.

Katie Osinski scored 11 points and Jenna Jakobi added 10 for the Tigers.

Stevens Point put up 41 first-half points in the boys game to take a nine-point lead and held off the Tigers the rest of the way in the Wisconsin Valley Conference opener for both teams.

Seth Anderson made 11 of 15 shots from the field and scored a career-high 29 points for Marshfield. Reed Miller added 11 points and 10 rebounds, Tommy Olson hit three 3-pointers and had 12 points, and Brant Bohman also had 11 for the Tigers (2-4, 0-1 WVC).

Marshfield made 10 3-pointers in the loss, including four from Anderson.

Stevens Point, the three-time defending WIAA Division 1 state champions, improve to 3-1 overall and 1-0 in the conference.

Both Marshfield teams will travel to Wisconsin Rapids later this week for more Wisconsin Valley Conference action. The girls play Thursday and the boys on Friday at Lincoln High School.

Quick start lifts Columbus Catholic boys basketball past Auburndale

MARSHFIELD – Columbus Catholic came out firing on all cylinders and made quick work of Auburndale.

The Dons began the game on a 19-4 run during the first 6½ minutes and led by double digits the rest of the way as they cruised to a 67-49 victory in a nonconference boys basketball game Tuesday night at Columbus Catholic High School.

Columbus (5-1) jumped out to a 7-2 lead behind two baskets from Noah Hansen and a 3-pointer for Jarred Mandel. After both teams exchanged baskets, the Dons ran off 12 more points in a row. Evan Dieringer hit a 3-pointer and Nick Malovrh had five points to help Columbus take a 19-4 lead.

“Defensively we wanted to really focus on Cooper Weinfurter and Colton Wright, we knew they are really tremendous players,” Columbus Catholic coach Joe Konieczny said. “The people on them did a really good job denying. For the most, especially early, we communicated and made sure that what they tried to do was difficult.”

Columbus had another 10-0 run to make it 29-7 and led 40-18 at halftime after Mandel hit another 3-pointer in the closing minute.

Auburndale (3-1) was able to stabilize the game in the second half, forcing 10 turnovers and not giving the Dons as many open looks or drives, but only cut the deficit to as few as 13 on a couple of occasions late.

The Apaches made 12 of 14 free throws in the second half to help their offensive cause, which struggled to just 12 of 53 shooting from the floor. Auburndale’s top two scorers, Wright and Weinfurter, were held to just 18 points on 5 of 22 shooting.

Cale Jacoby led the Apaches with 14 points and Wright added 12.

“They denied the ball to Cooper and they know he’s the guy that starts and runs our offense, that was a key thing and I didn’t think we were very competitive right away,” Auburndale coach Chad Weinfurter said. “I’m disappointed that we didn’t compete better in the first half to give us a better chance. This is one of those games that you can learn a lot from if you choose to.”

Malovrh finished with 25 points and Mandel added 20 for the Dons.

“(Malovrh) was very unselfish the last few years, and played with two outstanding individual players (Tyler Fuerlinger and Hunter Schultz, both past Cloverbelt East players of the year) and I think this year you’re to see a full-Nick and see everything he can do out on the basketball court,” Konieczny said.

Columbus Catholic hosts Owen-Withee in a Cloverbelt Conference East Division game, and Auburndale will play a nonconference game at home against Abbbotsford on Friday.

MARSHFIELD – The Marshfield Columbus Catholic girls basketball team didn’t have its best game offensively, but it did more than enough on the defensive end to pull out a victory.

The Dons forced 25 turnovers, including 15 in the first half, and went on to defeat Spencer 51-40 in a Cloverbelt Conference East Division game Monday night at Columbus Catholic High School.

Marissa Immerfall did most of her damage inside, scoring a team-high 18 points and grabbing seven rebounds to lead Columbus Catholic (6-2, 3-1 Cloverbelt East).

“I thought we played extremely well in the first half, and in the second half we started experimenting with some different combinations on the floor and with our 2-3 zone offense,” Columbus coach Marty Draxler said.

Spencer (1-5, 1-4 Cloverbelt East) scored the first five points of the game before the Dons ripped off the next 15 to open up a double-digit lead.

Columbus held Spencer scoreless for nearly 7 minutes before Lexi Baehr, who finished with a game-high 25 points, hit a 3-pointer.

Columbus put together a 10-0 run, highlighted by four points from Maren Seefluth and a 3-pointer by Morgan Albrecht, to go ahead 29-13, and the Dons led by double digits the rest of the game.

Seven different Dons scored and 11 players saw minutes on the floor during the win.

“I like to trap and I like to press, and as our bench gets deeper, it’s going to help us long term,” Draxler said. “I looked at (Spencer) in the first half and they looked somewhat tired, and I looked at our girls on the bench having water knowing they are going to go in in 3 minutes.”

Turnovers plagued both teams during the first 10 minutes of the second half. A basket by Immerfall put the Dons up 46-28 before Spencer finally got its offense going a bit.

Aryiah Schuh made a basket and two free throws, and Baehr hit her fourth 3-pointer and three free throws after being fouled attempting another, to help Spencer close to within 10 with 1:58 to go, but the Rockets couldn’t make another basket.

“Taking care of the ball and boxing out on defense – our first 10 minutes were bad, they were getting a lot of second chances, we had six fouls, but once cleaned that up, things got much better,” Spencer coach Brian Abel said. “We’re definitely building in the right direction and we just have to keep it going and build some confidence up.”

Both teams return to Cloverbelt East action on Thursday as Columbus is at Gilman and Spencer plays at Loyal.
