Port can’t find answer on either side of ball as determined Grafton team churns to showdown win

As if a chilly wind and periodic drizzle weren’t annoying enough, the Grafton football team made sure the Port Washington Pirates had an especially irritating road trip last Friday.

Combining stout defense with two quick-strike touchdowns, the host Black Hawks pounded out a 25-6 win in a surprisingly one-sided North Shore Conference game against a longtime rival.

“All in all, it was our most complete game of the season,” said Grafton coach Andy Kolstad, whose team made the most of its homecoming test.


“Our defense gave us the field position, and our offense was able to move the ball.  We finally played football for four quarters.”


On paper, the game looked like a toss-up between two teams struggling for respectability in a league dominated by perennial powers. Port started the night 2-2 in NSC play and the Hawks were 1-3, with each record including a forfeit from Nicolet.

But Grafton was the team taking charge in the latest rematch. After a scoreless first quarter, the Hawks mounted a 10-play,  63-yard drive that put them ahead for good.

Romeo Wood’s 3-yard touchdown run with eight minutes left in the half put Grafton up, 6-0.


Although Port stymied another drive by the Hawks by forcing an incomplete pass on fourth down, Grafton quickly returned the favor.


This time, Nic Fullington intercepted a deep throw by Port quarterback Ben Schueller and returned the ball to the Pirates’ 40. Grafton’s drive stalled inside the red zone, but Joe Fugate kicked a 30-yard field with 16 seconds left that put the Hawks up, 9-0.


Port tried to regroup at halftime, but its comeback hopes were quickly jolted in the third quarter.

Kohler co-op team puts up a fight in CLC game but Ozaukee musters enough offense to remain unbeaten

After running roughshod over its previous five opponents, the Ozaukee High School football team was due for a tougher challenge last Friday.

It came in the form of a Kohler/Sheboygan Lutheran/Sheboygan Christian co-op team that visited Fredonia for a Central Lakeshore Conference game.


Although the Bombers’ defense managed to slow Ozaukee’s high-powered offense, that effort wasn’t nearly enough to keep the Warriors from posting a 26-7 win that assured them of a WIAA playoff berth.


“We played very well,” said Ozaukee coach Jim Lippe, whose team improved to 7-0 overall and 3-0 in CLC play.


“It was a hard-fought game against a really good football team that came ready to play.”


The win set the stage for a showdown this Friday, when Ozaukee hosts Cedar Grove-Belgium (6-1 overall, 3-0 in the conference) for a game that will probably decide the CLC title.


Kohler/Lutheran/Christian gave the Warriors something to think about, holding them to a single touchdown in each quarter and their lowest offensive output since a 16-7, season-opening win over Manitowoc Lutheran.

The Cedar Grove-Belgium volleyball team had to settle for a 2-3 match record at its annual Rocket Invitational last Saturday, but it wasn’t for lack of effort.

In each of their losses, the Rockets played three-game matches.

“We went the distance in all three losses and played very well at times,” Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Tabitha Weavers said.


The Rockets defeated Kohler (25-19, 25-18) and St. Francis (25-7, 17-25, 15-13). They lost to Kiel (20-25, 25-7, 15-6), Columbus (20-25, 26-24, 15-12) and Kewaskum (25-15, 22-25, 15-6).


Cedar Grove-Belgium’s front-row leader for the tournament was Ellie Kaat with 35 kills and 11 blocks.


Also for the Rockets, Cailey Jeske had 21 kills, 16 blocks and nine aces, Allie DeRuyter had 42 assists and three aces, and Megan Gonwa had 48 digs and three aces.
