Freshman Braxton Gahan pulled down a career-high 12 rebounds as the Ozaukee High School’s boys’ basketball team defeated visiting Mishicot Friday, 70-55, in a Big East Conference showdown.

It was a game the Warriors were expected to win and they did not disappoint.

The Warriors entered the game with a 4-6 conference record while Mishicot was 2-8,

The Warriors had three players in double digits as they took an early lead and never looked back.

“We started a little shaky, but as the game wore on, we got stronger,” Ozaukee coach Bob Domach said.

“We rebounded well on both ends of the court. I was happy with how we bounced back from the Cedar Grove game.”

Noah Miller recorded a game-high 22 points, including four three-point baskets.

Brent Hoffmann had 17 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists.

Mitch Weyker had 13 points and seven rebounds.

Roger Zipperer led Mishicot with 15 points and 11 rebounds. Nathan Driscoll scored 11 and Logan Wells had 14 points and 10 rebounds.

Ozaukee’s game originally scheduled for Jan. 22 at Kohler was moved to Feb. 4 due to bad weather.

The Warriors’ game at Cristo Rey High School on Jan. 29 was postponed due to frigid weather. On Friday, Ozaukee will play at Sheboygan Christian.

Warrior girls fall to Mishicot

A 34-point output from Mishicot’s Kylie Schmidt resulted in a 66-49 Big East loss for the Warrior girls at Mishicot last Thursday.

Schmidt, who averages 16.8 points and 9.1 rebounds per game, also recorded 18 rebounds.

The Warriors were challenged by a size differential.

“Mishicot is very athletic and tall,” Ozaukee coach Tim Wolff said.

“They have four girls at least 6 feet tall.”

Ozaukee played competitively in the first half and were down by just a point at halftime, 28-27. But Mishicot pulled away in the second half.

“I thought our girls played very hard and even though we were down by one point at half, we could have been up by six or eight, but for a couple little things,” Wolff said.

“We had trouble rebounding, but had a lot of second chances. The final score was not indicative of how competitive the game was.”

Gabby Klas led the Warriors with 20 points, including six three-pointers.

“Gabby Klas had a huge shooting night and is really growing as a player. She’s only a freshman,” Wolff said.

Becca Schauer added 11 points. Cami Miller pulled down seven rebounds and Greta Klas dished out four assists.

“We will regroup with one more game and then get ready for the conference tournament,” Wolff said.

Mishicot is tied for first place in the conference with Howards Grove. Both teams are 11-1. The Warriors are in fifth place with a 7-5 record.

Ozaukee will host Sheboygan Christian on Tuesday, Feb. 5.
