JORDAN VILLA CG B s1121917293 4CRockets snap four-game skid before falling to Big East Conference rival

The scoreboard didn’t necessarily show it against its biggest rival on Dec. 21, but Cedar Grove-Belgium’s boys’ basketball team is making progress.
The Rockets lost at Oostburg, 69-53, in a Big East Conference game.
Cedar Grove-Belgium was only down four at halftime, 30-26, before the Flying Dutchmen pulled away in the second half.
So far, two of the Rockets’ most prolific offensive weapons in football — quarterback Jason von Heimburg and wide receiver Michael Navis — have also carried the scoring load in basketball.
Von Heimburg led the Rockets with 17 points on 5-for-12 shooting. The senior grabbed seven rebounds and had four assists. He made three of five three-pointers.
Navis, a sophomore, scored 14 points on 6-for-12 from the field.
“Jason had another solid game. He continues to impress and be solid. His shot selection was very good and he was able to score to keep us in it,” coach Josh Ketterhagen said.
“Michael also shot well and was able to score. He is making gains and gaining confidence. It is good to see.”
Aaron Veldhorst added eight points.
Ketterhagen said he was impressed with his team’s overall performance.
“I thought we played pretty well against Oostburg. We took care of the basketball pretty well (16 turnovers) against some pretty good pressure and a solid 1-3-1 (zone defense). We will get better throughout the year,” coach Josh Ketterhagen said.

Castillo’s pin is one of seven for in a dual-meet win over NSC foe Nicolet

Christmas came early for Port Washington wrestler Shem Castillo.
The Pirate freshman pinned Nicolet’s Barry Quinnies in 4 minutes, 34 seconds in a dual match on Dec. 21.
It was Castillo’s first pin in varsity wrestling.
“That was kind of an exclamation point from a dual meet,” coach Angelo LaRosa said.
After the victory, Castillo showed off some talent in another area.
“He did a little dancing after. He’s got some good dance moves,” LaRosa said.
“He was fired up.”
The match was one of the highlights in a 42-29 victory in which the Pirates earned seven pins.
PORT WRESTLING color s1122117280“It was an exciting dual,” LaRosa said.
Up, 24-23, with four matches left, the Pirates reeled off three straight pins before forfeiting at 285 to seal the win.
Senior Lukas Burke at 182 pounds pinned Nick Noble in 54 seconds, and Tristan Griswold at 195 pinned Peter Driscoll in 2:34.
“We knew it could get really close. It got pretty dicey there for a little bit,” LaRosa said.
Port wasn’t fielding its full team, however.
“We had some guys out due to injury – We’ve been hit by injury bug so far this season,” LaRosa said.
“Some other people just had to step up and they did.”
Angel Torres at 138 pounds was wrestling a category higher than usual — he will be at 132, LaRosa said — and earned a pin over Robert Lagerman in 1:55. And he did it after nearly losing the match.
“Angel Torres got a pin from off his back. That was a huge momentum swing,” LaRosa said.
Some of the Pirates’ usual suspects did what they usually do — shorten the match while parking their opponent’s shoulders on the mat.

They didn’t steal Christmas, but Slinger’s boys’ basketball team played the Grinch on Dec. 19 in Port Washington.
The Owls stole a victory from the Pirates by forcing a turnover and hitting a buzzer-beater.
Port Washington dropped a holiday heartbreaker in its final game before Christmas, 50-47.
Slinger guard Tyler Evans hit a three-pointer as time expired to send Slinger’s bench into bedlam and the Owls home with a victory.
The winning score came aftera  stellar Pirates’ defense forced a turnover.
PORT BASKETBALL COACHES SWEATERS color 12 28 17With the game tied, 47-47, Zach Uselding drove and missed a jumper.  Slinger grabbed a defensive rebound with 10.1 seconds left and called timeout.
The Owls came out to inbound the ball, and Port followed with its own timeout.
When play resumed, Slinger got the ball in bounds and Pirate Jake Lippe got in the face of the ball handler, forcing an errant air ball that got nowhere near the basket.
A Pirate grabbed the ball out of the air. Port called timeout with 1.9 seconds left. Officials quickly determined to give back half a second and move the clock back to 2.4 seconds, a move that seemingly would work in Port’s favor.
The Pirates had to travel the length of the court. All-conference quarterback Adam Baierl was to make the throw.
Baierl fired a pass, but the ball got tipped near mid-court and bounced around like a hot potato. Nobody could corral the ball until Evans found it in his hands near the three-point line.
He instantly fired up an uncontested shot that went through the hoop as the buzzer rang. The extra half second put back on the clock ended up working against Port.
The Pirates left the court in disgust and disbelief. The Owls left in fortunate triumph.
