Determined comeback not enough for Port in frustrating football loss at West Bend East

The Port Washington football team bounced back from double-digit deficits twice on the road last Friday, but West Bend East made enough plays when it counted to pull away, 35-22.
That leaves both teams at 3-4 in the North Shore Conference and needing two victories in their final two games to qualify for the postseason.
Battling back to take a 22-21 lead, Port had a fourth-and-five from East’s 35 with less than 10 minutes to play. One first down and Port could have taken more time off the clock and perhaps drove down and scored to seal a victory.
Quarterback Adam Baierl rolled right but couldn’t find anyone. East’s bump-and-run coverage with help from other defenders blanketed star receiver Jacob Lippe.
BAIERL CR IMG 2836 4CBaierl scrambled back left and tried to create something, but slipped. East took over at its own 44 with 9 minutes, 31 seconds left.
“That would have been real good. We couldn’t get that,” Port coach John Bunyan said.

Ozaukee having much improved season; Port wins two straight

Cedar Grove-Belgium’s kickers were one goal away from a possible title in their home tournament on Saturday.
The Rockets lost, 1-0, to Veritas/Tenor in the championship game.
In pool play, the Rockets beat Manitowoc Roncalli, 3-1; and beat Ozaukee, 3-2, in penalty kicks after tying, 1-1, in regulation.
“It was a great day for soccer. We avenged an earlier-in-the-year loss to Roncalli,” coach Elias Garza said
Nick Alva scored all three goals versus Roncalli, and Matthew Pearson netted the Rockets’ only score against the Warriors.
On Sept. 28, the Rockets earned a 1-1 draw at Oostburg, the second-place team in the Big East Conference.
CGB OZ SOCCER s2093017212 4CThe Flying Dutchmen scored in the first 39 seconds of the game and held possession for much of the half, but the Rockets’ defense held up, Garza said.
With nine minutes left in the game, Josh TeStroete evened the score.
“Tale of two halves — much better play in the second half. I cannot say enough about the collective effort and response by these kids in not giving up against state-ranked Oostburg,” Garza said.
Oostburg moved to 7-0-2 in the conference and Cedar Grove-Belgium to 0-6-1.
On Sept. 26, the Rockets lost, 3-0, in a nonconference match at New Holstein. The Rockets were missing three players.
