Fri, 19 Dec 2014 20:00:56 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Lightning zap Wolves on mat Thu, 18 Dec 2014 18:55:14 +0000 The Milaca Wolves wrestling team simply dug themselves too big of a hole against Annandale/Maple Lake on Friday, Dec. 12.
Milaca trailed by a large margin before their bigger, more experienced wrestlers started to rack up points as the Wolves eventually lost 39-29.
“Finally, at 160 (pounds) we started picking it up and doing a lot better,” said Wolves’ co-coach Mitch Vedders. “It was a nice run for us.”
Milaca’s Dru Kuchenbaker started the comeback with a win over Hunter Malachek and then Jack Barsody had a great effort in his160-pound match. After that, Aaron Moscho did real well in his win at 170.
Austin Weidner then demonstrated his tremendous strength to manhandle his opponent for a convincing win at 182. Weidner was extremely close to pinning Trae Bedford.
“We were thinking he was going to beat him and we were hoping that he would pin him,” Vedders said. “It was a really good match for us but we were really hoping for a pin there.”
Weidner, a senior, looked real good in his match.
“He’s so strong and so talented,” Vedders praised. “We even thought he would dominate even more.”
Colton Sailor, another senior, then had a phenomenal victory in his match over Spencer Ogden in the 220-pound division.
“The guy he wrestled was ranked and Colton’s not ranked,” Vedders noted. “Beating him was a big surprise to a lot of people. That was a really good match.”
Josh Otten had a forfeit win in the 195-pound division and then Jake Merten, a senior, closed out the night with a pin in the 285-pound match.
Despite the loss to Annandale/Maple Lake, the Wolves proved, once again, that they have a very strong upper weight class of wrestlers. The challenge for Vedders, and fellow co-coach Clay Hoeck, is to get the lighter wrestlers up to par.
“We knew we were going to lose early on (to Annandale/Maple Lake),” Vedders admitted. “We knew they had a lot of ranked guys down low.”
Vedders said their wrestlers can’t afford to give up big points with a pin.
“That’s something we need to work on,” he stressed. “Giving up six is way worse than giving up four or three for team points. We can’t get pinned at those lighter weights.”
Milaca will be right back on the mat at home Thursday, Dec. 18 at 7 p.m. against Albany and then the Wolves will be at Pierz Healy at 5 p.m. the next night.
“Albany hasn’t been a real strong team in the past,” Vedders noted. “So, we’re hoping to get a win there and Pierz, historically, has been pretty tough. But this year, I don’t know if they are as tough as they have been.
“But that’s always a good match and good competition.”

Wolves howling at a perfect 4-0 Thu, 18 Dec 2014 18:50:16 +0000 The Milaca Wolves’ varsity girls’ basketball team could not have asked for a better start to their season.
With a perfect 4-0 record, the Wolves are proving that they have a very talented team that can beat you in so many ways.
“I can’t remember the last time we started out 4-0 but I hope we don’t rest ourselves on the fact we went 4-0 because we have a long road ahead of us,” said Wolves’ head coach David Leom. “It’s an accomplishment, yes, and it’s nice. But, at the same token, we can’t rest ourselves on that.”
Milaca earned that fourth victory on Saturday, Dec. 13, easily defeating an undermanned Zimmerman club 65-40 at a four-team event in Mora.
The Wolves were clearly the better team in this one, opening up first-half leads of 15-4 and 32-16. That 16-point advantage came with 3:31 remaining in the first half.
Milaca controlled this game from the opening tip-off.
“I think the biggest key was the fact we really boxed out well,” Leom said. “We closed out really well. Those two things are what we were consistent with in the first half. When you box out and they don’t get second chances, and you don’t get into foul trouble and those kinds of things, it helps.”
The Wolves had a well-balanced scoring attack in the win. Megan Dahlstrom had another solid game with 20 points while Makayla Paggen had 14. Molly Banks was, once again, strong inside and finished with 13 points.
On Thursday, Dec. 13, the Wolves squeaked out a nail-biting 52-50 win at Kimball Area High School. Milaca led 34-22 at the break but Kimball Area battled back to make the game close in the second half.
The Wolves were guilty of making poor shot selections, said Leom, which allowed the home side to close the gap. Many of Kimball Area’s points came from inside, Leom noted.
“They were pretty balanced and I was impressed with how they came out with some firepower, too,” Leom said. “They’re no slouch.”
The two-point victory over Kimball Area was a real good test for the Wolves. It was a type of game that Milaca can learn a lot from.
“They were experienced,” Leom noted. “They had six, seven girls come back and I think almost all were starters from last year.”
Paggen was extremely good for the Wolves in the win, scoring a team-high 26 points.
Milaca played at Becker on Tuesday, Dec. 16 after the Times went to press so no results were available. The Wolves will take part in an Ogilvie tournament, beginning Friday. The tournament is a good way for the Wolves to extend some minutes to bench players.
“That’s what we’re trying to experiment with, seeing who’s ready to come out and play,” Leom said. “If we get a sizeable lead on a team then maybe we can see who else is ready to go.
“It’s about building the program, from everyone on the bench to the top starters, you have to keep building it.
“And a holiday tournament does that.”

Boys lose overtime thriller to Zimmerman Thu, 18 Dec 2014 18:49:21 +0000 Through its first four games this season, the Milaca Wolves varsity boys’ basketball team has proven that it can be competitive.
Now, the challenge is to find a way to win close games.
The Wolves had a pair of close games last week, losing 71-68 at home to Becker on Dec. 9 and then dropping a thrilling 81-76 overtime decision in Zimmerman just three nights later.
Against Zimmerman, Milaca led 39-32 at the half and built a 10-point second-half lead. But, just like they have done twice earlier this season, the Wolves saw their opposition battle back from a second-half deficit by making some shots.
“We ended up being sloppy defensively, letting them back in it,” said Wolves’ head coach Dustin Naumann.
The Wolves trailed 72-69 but forced the overtime when sophomore Matthew Fransen hit a three-pointer from about 30 feet away at the buzzer.
Milaca had fouled a Zimmerman player with five seconds remaining in regulation time and he missed the free throw. With that miss, Milaca fired the ball up the sidelines to Fransen, who calmly nailed the game-tying shot.
Senior Levi Hunt led the Wolves with 23 points while Franzen had 18 and Mike Garber 15.
In the close loss to Becker, the game was tied at 68-68 with about 30 seconds left in the game.
Milaca had possession of the ball but missed a jump shot, which enabled Becker to come right back up the floor and make a late bucket and a subsequent free throw.
Milaca had a tough finish to the game, but the Wolves started real strong. They played well in the first half, opening up a 37-29 halftime lead.
Milaca increased their lead to 11 points in the second half but Becker tightened up its pressure, forcing several turnovers. The second half was almost a carbon copy of Milaca’s recent loss to St. Cloud Cathedral.
Tired players usually start to make mental mistakes and tend to turn the ball over. That’s what happened in this one.
“We’ve been battling illness and stuff like that,” Naumann said. “I’ve self-admitted, we have a short rotation right now and that fatigue does show through.”
Hunt had another solid game for the Wolves with 16 points while Fransen was real good with 15 points. Fellow sophomore Mitch Garber came off the bench to score five points and did a real nice job on the boards, hauling in six rebounds to go along with three assists.
“(Mitch) gave us a nice little spark off the bench from one of our young guys,” Naumann said.
With the two losses last week, Milaca’s record is now 1-3. The challenge, however, is getting the Wolves to find ways to win games. This team is not far off at all from being a real good team.
The key for the Wolves is not to force shots near the end of tight games.
“With these close games, the kids know they’re competitive,” Naumann said. “When things start going the wrong way, players start pressing and trying to do a little too much. We start taking contested shots and things like that.”
The Wolves headed into Tuesday’s road game at Annandale knowing that they can be competitive with most teams out there. Still, Naumann said he isn’t entirely satisfied with their team’s defensive play.
“Even the kids themselves have said, ‘Our defense needs to step up a little bit more,’” noted the Wolves’ head coach. “We’re a team that would like to be allowing 60 points a game – that’s where we have been in the past. But this year we’re giving up 76 points a game.”
The Wolves played at Annandale this past Tuesday but no score was available at press time. Milaca competes at a St. John’s Prep tournament, beginning Thursday, Dec. 18. The Wolves will have games Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
“For us, we’re trying to build a little bit of momentum before we have a two-week break,” Naumann explained. “This is kind of big for us to give us a push into the new year and the grind of the conference season.”

Wolves wrestlers second at Little Falls Thu, 11 Dec 2014 20:34:22 +0000 sports wrestling austin weidner

The Milaca Wolves wrestling team is getting better and better each time out on the mat.
Milaca was very busy last weekend, losing 36-30 to Little Falls last Friday and then placing second at the Litchfield Invite on Saturday.
“Little Falls has a pretty solid team all the way through,” said Wolves’ co-coach Clay Hoeck. “They’re pretty steady guys. We lost a couple of matches that maybe we should have turned around but that’s the way it goes.”
Hoeck liked what he saw from his guys last weekend.
“There were a lot of positives,” he stressed. “It’s the beginning of the season and we’re always getting better. Our big guys are really coming through for us.”
Seniors Josh Otten, Austin Weidner, Hunter Noor and Jack Barsody wrestled particularly well, said Hoeck.
“They were guys that we pretty much needed to win and they beat some good kids,” Hoeck said.
On Saturday, the Wolves competed in the individual eight-team tournament in Litchfield. Hutchinson was the lone team to finish ahead of Milaca.
“That’s the best we’ve wrestled all season,” Hoeck said. “We went out and wrestled well. You can see the gears going in motion and the kids want to win. Wrestling’s a tough sport and you have to want to win to do well.”
The Wolves are back in action Friday, Dec. 12 when they host Annandale and Maple Lake.
“It’s always exciting getting that first home dual meet,” Hoeck said. “It should be an exciting match, Annandale has a good team and hopefully we can wrestle well.”

If the Milaca Wolves can take anything away from their 87-75 road loss to the St. Cloud Cathedral Crusaders on Friday, Dec. 5, it was the fact they are not too far off from their varsity boys’ conference rivals.
In fact, Milaca proved that they could play with Cathedral in their own gym as the Wolves built a 34-28 lead with 4:48 remaining in the first half.
The key for the Wolves, up until that point, was ball security. Milaca was real good in limiting turnovers (one through the game’s first 14 minutes) while Matthew Fransen, a sophomore, was red-hot, scoring 17 of his 19 points in the first half.
“We played well early on,” said Wolves’ head coach Dustin Naumann. “We knew they were going to pressure eventually…and at the end of the first half, they started applying a little bit of pressure.”
That ball security changed, however, late in the first half with three Milaca turnovers (they only had four the entire first half). That sloppiness then carried over early into the second half.
The Crusaders took advantage of those Wolves’ turnovers and changed the momentum of the game, erasing a 45-43 half-time deficit and turning it into a lead they would never relinquish.
Milaca had trouble, at times, with Cathedral’s pressure.
“We were wearing down,” said Naumann, noting the Wolves finished the game with 15 turnovers. “We’re still battling sickness and injuries. With our short rotation, we got tired at times and missed a few assignments.”
The Wolves’ Sam Berg missed the game with an injury while Milaca welcomed the return of senior Nick Wolbert to the lineup. Wolbert, with just one week of practice, had some bright moments and finished with eight points.
Levi Hunt, fresh off scoring 37 points in the season-opening road win over Foley, fought off various illnesses to log plenty of minutes. He finished the game with 21 points and 13 rebounds.
Mike Garber also had a strong game for the Wolves, finishing with a team-high 25 points.
As a team, the Wolves saw plenty of good signs against a pretty good Crusaders’ squad.
“Our guys really believed coming in that we could hang with (Cathedral) and then they proved it out on the court,” Naumann said. “This is a team that is state ranked, actually, and it’s a team that’s going to be one of the top two seeds in our section.
“But we have no qualms knowing that we can compete.”
As the Crusaders heated up in the second half, so did their senior guard Brindley Theisen. Theisen, who will play for St. Cloud State next season, was relatively quiet in the first half but was much better after the break.
“I kind of give credit to the kid,” Naumann conceded. “We thought we kind of did a good job keeping him in check in the first half, forcing his teammates to make plays, which shows they’re pretty solid all the way through because other guys were able to make plays.”
Milaca (1-1) hosted Becker this past Tuesday (no score was available at press time) and then will play at Zimmerman this Friday. Zimmerman has a young lineup but a talented group of sophomores, Naumann noted.
“From their scores I’ve seen, they haven’t been putting up a ton of points but they have been playing some pretty good defense,” Naumann said. “From scouting them, it looks like they play two different styles of ball. When they have their starters in there, they kind of run a slow-it-down, pound it inside to the guy in the post.
“And then when they have their second unit, with a bunch of sophomores, they try to run-and-gun you and try to wear you down. It will be a challenge for us.”
Tip-off for Friday’s road game is 7:30 p.m.

Basketball: Girls dominate in win over Maple Lake Thu, 11 Dec 2014 20:24:20 +0000 sports girls basketball Alex Ploeger

It’s only two games into their season, but the Milaca Wolves’ varsity girls’ basketball team has proven that they can win a couple of different ways.
And last Friday’s 47-38 home victory over Little Falls showed that Milaca can win a low-scoring, gritty affair.
It also showed that the Wolves have the character to pull out a come-from-behind victory and they can also play extremely well on defense.
It wasn’t pretty, but it was a win for the Wolves.
“It was fantastic,” said Wolves’ head coach David Leom. “In the first half, they scored 24 points and then in the second half we only let them score 14, so that was nice. If we keep them under 40, you’re going to guess that we’ll have a win.”
The Wolves’ trailed 24-18 at the half and never really led until the 10-minute mark of the second half.
Milaca, at times, had trouble with Little Falls’ size. But the Wolves did manage to get some scoring from their centers. In fact, Megan Dahlstrom led the Wolves with 11 points, followed by Molly Banks and Megan Gould, each with10.
Banks was a force on the glass with 12 rebounds and she also had six blocks.
“Megan Gould came off the bench and was a sparkplug for us,” said Leom, noting Milaca was 0-for-8 from three-point land. “She struggled in the first half but in the second half, she was all over the place. They didn’t have anyone to answer for her.”
Jordan Schuett led Little Falls with 11 points.
The Wolves started their season in impressive fashion with a dominating 73-45 victory over the Maple Lake Irish on Dec. 2 in Milaca.
Milaca was clearly the better team in this one. The Wolves shot well from outside and did a good job going hard to the basket.
Still, the Wolves started a tad slow but seemed to gain more confidence as the first half wore on. Milaca ended the first half with a 34-19 lead.
“We got a couple of baskets off fast-break opportunities and the light went on,” Leom said. “And then they decided to run, run, run, run. We have that depth that we can push, push, push.”
Makayla Paggen had a terrific game, leading the Wolves with 27 points (on 11-for-16 shooting) while Leom felt Dahlstrom also played really well. Dahlstrom had 12 points and five steals.
“(Megan) was aggressive and she shot right around the 50-percent mark,” said the Wolves’ head coach. “She was aggressive on defense and she was very quick with her feet. I’m more impressed with her every day because she’s learning nuances of the game every time she comes out.”
Banks, meanwhile, had another strong game with 15 points, five rebounds and five blocks.
Milaca’s win over Maple Lake was a real nice way to start their season.
“It went really well for a season opener,” Leom said, noting Ashley Cassens missed the game due to illness. “Both teams came out with those jitters…but I think we did a real nice job taking advantage of that opportunity to be able to run.”
The Wolves (2-0) are back in action Thursday, Dec. 11 when they play at Kimball Area High School. Tip-off is 7:30 p.m.

Wolves topple LeSueur at Waconia Invite Thu, 11 Dec 2014 14:52:19 +0000 Jack Barsody is on his way to getting a 8-0 major decision over Waconia’s over Mason Hemze on Saturday, Nov. 29 at the Waconia Invitational.

Jack Barsody is on his way to getting a 8-0 major decision over Waconia’s over Mason Hemze on Saturday, Nov. 29 at the Waconia Invitational.

The Milaca Wolves’ wrestling team finally had a chance to compete at a tournament in Waconia last Saturday.
And it looks like they have some work to do.
“We learned a lot,” sighed Wolves’ co-coach Mitch Vedders Monday evening. “I don’t think it was a great weekend for us. We ended up losing to Waconia and Shakopee, both teams that we thought we would hang with better.”
Despite the sub-par performance, the season opener was a great learning experience for both the Milaca coaches and wrestlers.
“We had a chance to see where we need work and we had a chance to wrestle some tough teams,” Vedders said. “We had a chance to see where we are at as a team.”
Vedders felt the Wolves underperformed at their first competition of the season.
“We just didn’t see the level of wrestling that we were hoping for from our guys,” Vedders lamented.
Milaca’s lone team victory was a 49-30 decision over LeSueur-Henderson. The Wolves’ losses came against Waconia (43-28) and Shakopee (47-21).
“We got blown out by Shakopee, they’re a really tough team,” Vedders admitted. “They’re ranked 42nd in the nation right now. But we think we should have been able to hang with them a little better – push them a little harder.
“But we’re learning and still trying to figure things out. We know we don’t peak right away. It’s more of a marathon than a sprint and we have a long season yet and a lot of wrestling yet to get better.”
The Wolves did have some positives at the tournament. Josh Otten was outstanding in his aggressiveness, said Vedders, and was in control of his matches.
Other notables, said Vedders, were Colton Sailor and Jake Merten.
“Basically, all of our big guys wrestled really well,” Vedders said, noting the Wolves had 10 pins on the day.
The Wolves are at Little Falls this Friday and Litchfield on Saturday. This past week was used by the Wolves to work on their bottom work and setting up moves in preparation for those two events.
“Little Falls is a tough team,” Vedders noted. “I would say they’re pretty equal with us. They’re a good competitor, so were looking for a good, strong dual with them and Litchfield is an individual tournament, the only individual we do.
“It will be fun for our guys to see how they match up. It’s in their hands to determine their fate.”
Here are the results from last Saturday’s tournament in Waconia:
