It took 10 games, but the Cedar Grove-Belgium High School boys’ soccer team broke into the win column last Saturday.

The Rockets topped their rival Ozaukee, 2-1, in an abbreviated Rocket Invite that turned into two round-robin games due to soaked field conditions.

Calvin Lutzke scored twice in the first half, and it would hold up. The Warriors got on the board midway through the second half and pressured until the end.

“It was a competitive, tight game,” coach Elias Garza said. “I’m poud of our guys for battling and earning the W. These young men have continued to fight all year. It was gratifying to see them enjoy the moment, very deserving.”

Against Living Word Lutheran later in the day, the Rockets lost, 4-1. Brady Heyden gave the Rockets an early lead but the Timberwolves responded.

Last Thursday at Random Lake, the Rockets lost, 5-2. They allowed one goal before Heyden and Will Lautenschlager scored to give them their first lead of the year.

The Rams answered with a “disputed goal” before halftime and scored three more in the second half.

The Rockets play at Howards Grove on Thursday and host Sheboygan Lutheran/Christian on Tuesday, Oct. 15.

Grafton tied host Slinger last Thursday, 1-1.

The Black Hawks took the lead on a goal by Nathan Wagner on an assist by Max Stilb in the 26th minute.

“It was a nice little free kick that played real quick. Max slotted him the ball and he took it around the keeper and finished,” coach Don Arnold said.

The Owls got behind the Hawks’ defense in the 41st minute to tie the game.

“In the second half we actually played very well, created lots of opportunities,” Arnold said. “Their keeper came up with some huge saves.”

Jonathan Weinhold missed the game due to injury, and Victor Geiser missed the second half with an injury.

The Hawks, 3-3-1 in the North Shore Conference, hosted Kohler on Tuesday and host Nicolet (6-1 NSC) on Thursday. They play at West Bend West (2-5) on Tuesday, Oct. 15.

Port Washington lost to Homestead, 2-0, on Monday. The Highlanders scored in the 32nd minute on a left-footed bending shot.

“There was no chance for even a professional goalie to stop that one,” coach Sean O’Brien said.

Homestead added one in the 89th minute.

“We went toe-to-toe with them,” O’Brien said.

He credited the back line of his defense — Bryce Bertler, Shane McConahy, Josh and Sean Bongiorno and Marcus Karrels — and keeper Cale Theis for their play.

Port (2-4-1) plays at Whitefish Bay (5-0) on Thursday and hosts Hartford (1-4-1) on Tuesday, Oct. 15.

Ozaukee remains winless and plays at Roncalli/Two Rivers on Thursday.
