Bonduel 56

Gillett 44

Gillett came up a little short in a nonconference road clash against Bonduel on Tuesday.

Suring 42

St. Thomas Aquinas Academy 40

Jaden Bubolz knocked down a jumper with six seconds left to give Suring a thrilling Marinette & Oconto Conference win over St. Thomas Aquinas Academy on Tuesday in Marinette.

Kylee Stelzer led Suring with 15 points, while Paige Krueger had 12 and Kate Mahoney 10. Mahoney tied the game at 40 with a 3-pointer with just over a minute to play.

“This was a hard-fought game, and it was great to come out on the winning side,” said Suring coach Mitch Woulf. “We were in foul trouble all night as (STAA’s Lianna) Baxter is a tough player, but the girls kept battling. Down double digits with 10 (minutes) to play, we battled back to three when Kylee fouled out.

“There was definitely some anxiousness when that happened, as Ky is the heart and soul of our team, but the girls kept believing. Kate hit a huge 3, and it was great to see Jaden play the role of hero. She is someone who understands her role and does a great job of it. She isn’t someone who shoots a ton, but is a confident passer, and someone that I can trust to not turn the ball over.”
