Shawano 58, Menasha 47
Shawano led from the start to finish in beating Menasha 58-47 last night in Shawano.
Good defense from the Hawks held the Bluejays in check in the first half as Shawano led 22-14 at the break. Both teams got it going in the second half but Shawano maintained their lead throughout. Hawks were led by Carter Weisnicht with 15 points. Atty Wagner added 14 points by going to a seldom used tool in his arsenal: the three pointer.
“Coaches told me to start shooting a lot more because in practice I make them,” Wagner said. “I wasn’t so confident in my shot but they helped me get more confidence in my shot and they just started falling tonight.”
Shawano is 8-10 and will host West De Pere on Tuesday.
Shawano girls are in action tonight against New London. The Hawks beat the Bulldogs in the first meeting for the first time since 2002.
