Mariners no match for Brown Deer in 20-point Woodland loss

Jan. 24, 2007

St. Francis avoided turning its recent contest at Brown Deer into a track meet, but the Mariners could not avoid their sixth straight loss.

The Mariners had success in running and gunning in a nine-point loss to Thomas More on Jan. 12, but against the gifted Falcons, Mariners coach John Kloppenburg thought it wise to avoid such a race.

"We really couldn't because they established back-court pressure and that put our kids on our heels," said Kloppenburg, whose team lost, 70-50, on Jan. 19. "They are athletically that much better and bigger. Everybody's guards are bigger than ours, but theirs were more athletic and quicker. (Ronrico Ragsdale) is our best athlete and they had a kid (Greg Davis) that was more athletic and bigger than him. It just gave us nightmares."

The loss dropped the Mariners to 1-12 overall and 0-9 in the Woodland Conference. Kloppenburg expects to pick up the pace again starting with today's home game against New Berlin West.

"There are some chances here if we can get teams to play like we did against Thomas More," he said. "The shape that our kids are in, and we can keep tossing kids out there, hopefully we can pull something out. With our guys, if we win one game, it could snowball into a couple."

The Falcons jumped out to a 10-point advantage after one quarter and then led by 21 at halftime. They then pulled away with a 24-7 third quarter.

"We tried to look at some things that maybe other teams haven't tried yet," Kloppenburg said. "We tried a zone, because they've struggled against it, but that (Derrick) Washington kid got on fire."

Washington led all players with 16 points and Davis added 10. Caleb Hargreaves had 12 for the Mariners, all in the fourth quarter.
