Nail-biting win over CG-Belgium gives Ozaukee its first Central Lakeshore football championship since 2003

Ozaukee High School football fans have waited 11 years for the return of a Central Lakeshore Conference championship to their field.

The wait is over.


Holding off a late rally by Cedar Grove-Belgium, the host Warriors pulled out a 28-22 win last Friday to clinch a share of the league title in front of a packed crowd.


“A lot of kids and coaches and a lot of people have worked really hard for a long time to get us to this point,” said Ozaukee coach Jim Lippe, whose team improved to 8-0 overall and 4-0 in CLC play with one week left in the regular season.


“We knew it was going to be a great crowd. Cedar Grove has a good team, a great coach and a great program.”


Both teams entered the Warriors’ homecoming game undefeated in the league, but it was Ozaukee that had just enough to take over sole possession of first place.


After the teams battled to a tie at intermission, the Warriors scored two touchdowns to grab a 28-14 lead with just 1 minute, 14 seconds left to play.


Cedar Grove-Belgium (6-2 overall and 3-1 in the conference) fought back with a quick touchdown and recovered an onside kick in the closing seconds but was unable to find the equalizer.

Michalowski-led Pirates ride season-best times to runner-up team honors in 35th annual home meet

After finishing second to West Bend West in a close race for the boys’ team championship at the Port Washington Cross Country Invitational last year, the host Pirates were poised for another title fight this fall.

That’s exactly what happened Oct. 9, when the squads dueled in the 35th annual meet at Tendick Park in Saukville, with West again emerging on top.

Placing all five of its runners in the top 21, West scored 60 points, comfortably ahead of runner-up Port’s 84.

“It was a good meet. West’s third and fourth runners finished ahead of ours, and their fifth was well ahead of ours, so we weren’t going to be able win it,” Port boys’ coach Mark Pasten said.

“But our team had its best run by far for the year.”

As he has throughout the season, Nick Michalowski led the Pirates. The senior completed the 5,000-meter course with a personal-best time of 15 minutes, 59.7 seconds, trailing only Pewaukee’s Robert Wagner (15:56) and logging the fourth-fastest time in Port team history.

“Nick attacked the course, set the pace and made people come after him,” Pasten said.

Scrappy effort keeps Port football team in fight but doesn’t prevent 17-6 loss

It won’t show up in the standings, but the Port Washington Pirtaes played some of their best football of the season last Friday.

That’s if you give scrappy play, hustle and stingy defense nearly as much weight as the final score.

“I thought we played the best football we have all year,” Port coach John Bunyan said after his squad fell to visiting  Whitefish Bay, 17-6, in a North Shore Conference tussle amid homecoming and senior-night festivities.

“Our team played hard and played well for most of the night. Other than a few turnovers, we did a good job of staying in the game.”

Port fell to 2-4 in the conference but had a good chance to even that record despite an underdog role against the 4-2 Blue Dukes.

Controlling the ball with two long drives, the Pirates kept Bay off the scoreboard nearly the entire first half. Port capped an 11-play, 72-yard drive with a 5-yard touchdown run by quarterback Ben Schueller three minutes into the second quarter.

Despite a missed extra point, the Pirates maintained a 6-0 lead with time winding down in the half.
