CG-Belgium football team fine-tunes game plan in big victory over Howards Grove

About the only thing that slowed the Cedar Grove-Belgium football team last Friday was a heavy fog that blanketed the Rockets’ home turf in the middle of the third quarter.sports1

But by that time, Cedar Grove-Belgium already held a 27-point lead on the way to a convincing, 42-15 win over Howards Grove in Central Lakeshore Conference play.

The Rockets (5-1 overall) scored four touchdowns before intermission, including a 26-yard scoring pass from Josh Weiss to Reid Hilbelink on the final play of the half.

Taylor Heiden added two first-half touchdowns for Cedar Grove-Belgium when the Tigers (2-4) made a concerted effort to take away the outside threat of running back Aaron Chier.

That strategy led Rockets coach Chris Zablocki to call more runs through the middle of his improving offensive line.

“With Aaron getting the touches he’s had the past two weeks, they were putting nine guys around him all the time,” Zablocki said.

“That allowed other guys to step up.”

Fast start lifts Port past Milwaukee Lutheran for confidence-building win

When opportunity knocked, the Port Washington football team was more than happy to answer last Friday night.sports2

Not only did a 24-13 win over Milwaukee Lutheran give the Pirates their first “real” victory of the season, it provided a much-needed confidence boost.

“It just feels good to get a win,” said Pirates coach John Bunyan, whose team had left the field on the short end of the score each of the first five weeks of the season.

“The weather was perfect, we came out strong and played well most of the game. We were excited about not having any turnovers, and forcing some ourselves.

“Our team really needed this.”

Soccer team heats up its offense in successful defense of Black Hawk Invitational title

The Grafton boys’ soccer team made sure home-field advantage paid off last weekend.

After rallying to edge Luxemberg-Casco for a semifinal win Friday, coach Don Arnold’s team successfully defended its Black Hawk Invitational title by blanking Oostburg, 6-0, on Saturday.

The title match was no contest, as Grafton used balanced scoring to take charge.


After goals by Ben Bauman and Logan Block gave the Hawks a 2-0 lead at halftime, a four-goal flurry broke things open.


Bauman set up a goal by Adam Huibregste that made it 3-0, and Nick Butt, Brendan Larsen and Tyler Howard followed with scores. After Butt converted a penalty kick for the fourth goal, he redirected a corner kick by Bauman for Larsen’s goal.


Spencer Ortyn finished with two assists, and Ben Lorge had another.


“We came out a little sluggish but played well. We just had more experience than Oostburg,” Arnold said.
