Marines Beat Freedom to Stay on Top of NEC

With just one game remaining in the North Eastern Conference girls’ soccer season, the Marinette Marines are in position to win the conference with a win over Wrightstown on Thursday.
The Marines played their final home game of the year on Tuesday, a 6-0 win over Freedom that knocked the Irish out of the NEC title race.
Chloe Seymour and Sierra Schreiner each scored two goals, with one more each by Maci Monnette and Josie Smerchek. Five of the six goals scored were in the first half.
“I feel like everybody was where they needed to be all the time,” Marinette coach Allyson Price said. “We’ve really been working on positioning and the girls are really doing well with that.”
A loss Thursday by Marinette would mean Fox Valley Lutheran could tie the Marines, but Marinette has a chance to seal it for themselves with a win over the Tigers. Kickoff is set for 4:30 p.m. against Wrightstown, 2-3-2 on the season.
Marinette honored its seniors on Tuesday as they played their final home game of the regular season. Seniors on the team include Koressa Allgeyer, Ashley Bechtold, Rylee Hansen, Heather Hruska, and Elizabeth Whisler.
“All our seniors around are really just really great role models for the young underclassmen,” Price said.

Bulldogs Drop Contest
to Flivvers 5-1

Kingsford out-muscled Peshtigo in a 5-1 victory over the Bulldogs on Monday.
The Flivvers were able to take a 1-0 lead in the first half
“We held our own in the first half. Lucy Lemire was amazing and kept us in it,” Peshtigo coach Jessie Carriveau said.
Lemire would go on to make 12 saves in the game, but the Flivvers scored four times in the second half.
“The defense line of Cassie Flett, Ella Maxwell, Emerey Slater, Brenna Fischer and Alexis Newbury played really strong, but we just weren’t able to out-physical them to keep ball control in the second half,” Carriveau said. “Our defense has played well all year and even though we lost, this was the best game they played against the best team we played against.”
Peshtigo scored one goal in the second half, a goal from Brooklyn Phillips to finish off an Audra Bauman assist.

Bulldogs Sweep Round
Robin Tourney in Antigo

Peshtigo swept Crandon, Antigo, and Phillips to win last weekend’s round robin tournament in Antigo.
“The girls all played really well. We were very happy with the ball movement on offense and communication throughout the day was very good,” Peshtigo coach Jessie Carriveau said.
Peshtigo did not allow a goal and held its opponents virtually without any shots on target all weekend.
On offense, six different players scored on the weekend.
Lorelei Maxwell scored four goals, including a hat-trick against Crandon, Brooklyn Phillips scored four goals, and Audra Bauman got six, including a hat-trick against Antigo.
Cassie Flett and AnaLisa Beaumont each scored twice against Phillips and Lauren Arndt scored once against Phillips.
“The best part of the day was watching our big scorers try to feed the ball to give other players opportunities to score,” Carriveau said. “As a team we felt it was better to help each other and the team improve through teamwork rather than to try to run up the score.”
