Truckers defeat Indians
Petermann drops 40 on W-F boys
By Greg Seubert
Tyler Petermann has a reputation as one of the best boys’ basketball players in the North Eastern Conference.
Weyauwega-Fremont found that out the hard way Jan. 4, as the Clintonville junior scored 40 points, including 26 in the second half, in the Truckers’ 66-57 nonconference win over the Indians in Weyauwega.
W-F jumped out to a 12-2 lead in the first half, but the Truckers tied the game at 14-14 on Petermann’s three-point play and took their first lead on a pair of Nathan Krueger free throws. The Indians trailed 22-17 late in the half, but cut the deficit to 22-21 at the break.
Krueger’s basket gave the Truckers their biggest lead at 37-27, but the Indians went on a 9-0 run to cut the lead to 37-36. Clintonville quickly pushed the lead back up to 10 points and the Indians never got any closer than five points the rest of the way.
Logan Bosquez and Dylan Pankow led the Indians with 23 and 12 points, respectively, while Krueger scored 17 for the Truckers.
