Badgers battle to the end
January 16, 2013 - Burt Angeli
Niagara has lost to Peshtigo by 28 and 41 points this boys basketball season.
Despite the big margins, Coach Jim Hoogland’s Badgers battle to the end against the Bulldogs.
“Both teams had a lot of energy, a lot of effort,” said Peshtigo Coach Ryan Spaulding after the Bulldogs’ 45th straight M&O Conference win, 61-33. “It was a physical game and the officials let both teams play. As a result you saw a lot of up and down (the floor). There were times where it wasn’t pretty with bodies on the floor.”
Defensive breakdowns and offensive shortcomings hurt the Badgers, a WIAA Division 5 team going up against the Division 3 Bulldogs.
“We’ve got some work to do offensively,” said Hoogland, his Badgers down 33-19 at halftime. “In the first half, we ran our offense in a rush and their defense was forcing us to run it too fast.”
