Fox Valley Lutheran 52, Oconto Falls 24
Freedom 52, Clintonville 45
Charlie Jadin was the catalyst for Freedom, who powered the offense with a game-high 26 points. Jadin shot 12-of-27 on the night and was the only Irish player in double figures. Freedom as a team shot 47 percent from the floor, despite hitting only 1-of-9 three-point shots, however, it would be enough for the Irish to split the season series with Clintonville.
“We just did a great job, especially Ty Brickner defending Tyler Petermann,” said Jadin of Freedom’s defensive performance. “We just did a nice job moving on offense. Clintonville is a tough team on defense. They’re solid all the way around, so it’s just tough scoring points, but we got the job done tonight.”
With the win, Freedom has now won six games in a row, with matchups against conference leaders Luxemburg-Casco and Little Chute looming. Jadin feels the team’s confidence is at an all-time high.
“We’re peaking at the right time,” said Jadin. “We were young to start, so we’re getting our pieces to fit together, which is really nice. We can contend with anyone. We lost to [Luxemburg] Casco by six the first time, so if we come play a little better we’ll be right there with them. Little Chute it’s always tough just because it’s crosstown rivals and everything, so that’ll be fun.”
Clintonville was led by Nathan Krueger’s 13 points. Tyler Petermann and Sam Wittman had 10 points each. The Truckers will face non-conference Shawano on Saturday, before returning to North Eastern Conference play.
Marinette 76, Luxemburg-Casco 75
Mitchell Jandrin converted 12-of-18 shooting for 29 points, but it wouldn’t be enough for the Spartans to avoid the upset on their home court. Matt Wagner led Marinette with 24 points, but Connor Nelson also turned in 20 to help spark the win.
Little Chute 57, Waupaca 43
Wrightstown 67, Denmark 60

Kaukauna 84, Oshkosh West 61
