Prep boys basketball: Bluejays hold off Pardeeville; Trojans, Falcons, L-Cats, Warriors win

January 6, 2019

JOHNSON CREEK — Senior guard Cole Ducklow scored 20 points for Johnson Creek’s boys basketball team in a 67-62 nonconference win over Pardeeville on Friday.

Junior guard/forward Alex Garza added 19 points with four 3-pointers for the Bluejays (5-5). Senior guard/forward Jamison Richardt added 11 points, including eight from the free throw line to help preserve the lead late. Ducklow added seven free throws and three 3-pointers. Senior guard Bryce Henningsen made four free throws in the closing minutes.

Senior forward Jackson Pargman scored 19 points to lead Pardeeville (3-7). Senior forward Austin Klubertanz and freshman guard Derek Lindert each added 13 for the Bulldogs, who trailed by 16 at halftime but made things close down the stretch.

“Proud of them,” Johnson Creek boys basketball Ryan Lind said. “They stayed calm in a loud situation at the end of the game. They were putting Richardt and Henningsen on the line for six minutes and they kept making free throws. Ducklow played a ton and was a great leader as always.

“Everyone contributed again. Our guys seem to definitely believe the team comes first. They were backing off of Garza and he hit several big shots.”

Johnson Creek hosts Parkview in a Trailways South game on Thursday.

DODGELAND 80,

WILLIAMS BAY 59

WILLIAMS BAY — Senior forward Zach Yuenger’s double-double of 34 points and 10 rebounds paced Dodgeland in an 80-59 win on Friday at Williams Bay, marking the program’s first road win over the Bulldogs since 2005.

“We finally took a coach bus for this trip,” Dodgeland boys basketball coach Bill Otte said. “They didn’t have the excuse of making the long road trip on a school bus. I told them, you guys came down here in style, let’s play like it. It was good.”

Yuenger scored 21 of his 34 points in the second half for Dodgeland (3-5), which scored 51 points over the final 18 minutes to break open a 29-27 lead at the break. Yuenger also had seven assists. Junior point guard Seth Christopherson added 17 points, seven steals and five assists.

“In the second half,” Zach and Seth combined for 11 assists between the two of them,” Otte said. “That’s how good we were at sharing the ball and hitting open looks, and the defense picked up. It was a good all-around second half for us tonight.”

Jack Barton, a 5-foot-8 junior guard, knocked down seven 3-pointers for all of his team-high 21 points for Williams Bay (2-8).

Dodgeland plays at Cambria-Friesland on Monday.

HUSTISFORD — Four players scored in double figures as Hustisford’s boys basketball team opened the new year with a 77-31 nonconference win over Princeton/Green Lake on Friday.

Senior guard Justin Kuehl scored 17 of his game-high 24 points in the first half while junior point guard Dylan Schmitt scored eight of his 11 points to help Hustisford (9-0) take a 43-21 lead into halftime.

Junior forward Zach Kehl had a double-double with 12 points and 12 rebounds. Sophomore forward Brody Thimm just missed a double-double with nine points and nine rebounds. Sophomore guard Dylan Kuehl added 12 and four assists.

“We knew we had to get out to a good start and play our style of game, and not fall into our opponents’ type of style,” Hustisford boys basketball coach Jake Falkenthal said. “We came out and set the tone early, just like we’ve been doing. Our leaders got off to a great start. That’s key. When your leaders come out and play to their potential, and don’t take a team for granted, everyone else (follows their lead).”

Justin Kuehl also had four assists and three steals and followed up a four-dunk performance at Pardeeville with another jam against the TigerSharks.

“Dylan had the assist,” Falkenthal said. “Justin took one step off of two feet and he threw it down.”

Hustisford hosts Dodgeland on Thursday.
