“Our defense was excellent tonight. We really played hard and got after it,” said Eagles coach Roger Young.
“(It was a) close game, hard fought all the way through. They took a one-point lead, I would say (with) about 30 seconds left when (Menominee) made a three-pointer. We ending up fouling and turning the ball over.
“They missed the free throw and that was with seven seconds left… We called a play but it didn’t really work. We got the rebound and we got Marissa open out on the top of the key. We just threw it out to her and she made the shot.”

SPASH 1, Ashwaubenon 1
ASHWAUBENON – The Panthers and the Jaguars battled to an overtime tie Friday night. James Block scored for the Jaguars in the first period on a power play at the 14 minute mark. Jake Jaworski of SPASH came up with the answer to that goal in the second period at the 9:34 mark. But the real star of the game was Jaguars goalie Ryan Wischow who made 44 saves on 45 shots on the night. SPASH outshot Ashwaubenon 45-15, but was only able to convert one of those shots into a goal.
“I thought we dominated the play most of the game. We ran into a really hot goalie. We had a lot of opportunities, but were not able to finish any of the second chance opportunities,” SPASH coach Dan Francis said.
“There were some lessons learned from the game, especially when you dominate the game out-shooting them three-to-one, and hopefully this is just a learning experience for us.”
1st: 1. Ashwaubenon James Block (Zach Johsnon, Jeremy Casterski), 14:00, (PP).
2nd: SPASH, Jake Joworski (Nick Larson), 9:34.
Saves: Ashwaubenon: Ryan Wischow: 18-16-6-4 — 44; SPASH: Nathan Siclovan: 5-1-8-0 — 14.
