Clutch play in two nail-biters give Port a soccer title

A season-long pattern of close matches continued last Saturday for the Port Washington girls’ soccer team.

But this time, the Pirates were more than happy to tangle in defensive scuffles, which ended with a tournament championship.


Outlasting a pair of foes, coach Mike Bultman’s squad emerged with top honors at the Kettle Moraine Lutheran quadrangular.


After edging Sheboygan Falls in a penalty-kicks tiebreaker in the semifinals, Port blanked host Lutheran, 1-0, in the title match.


“We’re growing and we’re learning,” Bultman said.


“I’m very proud of all the girls. They kept pushing and working hard in both games.”


Against Lutheran, the Pirates got the only goal they needed in the first half. Haley Zwicker sent a through ball to Alli Klotz, who found the net in the 25th minute.


“It was a very defensive-minded game. We had to hang there and protect the lead most of the way,” Bultman said.


When Port wasn’t controlling the ball, it got steady play from goalkeepers Allison Lessila in the first half and Sarah Maechtle in the second half.


The Pirates had an even tougher test against Falls, one of the state’s top Division 3 teams.

Tiebreaker success helps Grafton tennis team surge to tournament championship

A never-say-die attitude worked wonders for the Grafton boys’ tennis team last Saturday.

Prevailing in several matches that went to tiebreakers, the Black Hawks secured top honors at the Milwaukee Pius Invitational.


Grafton won two titles in singles and another in doubles and scored 28 points, four more than runner-up Cedarburg in a seven-team field.


Pius was third with 22 points.


“We won a lot of close matches. I was very proud of how our guys hung in there,” Hawks coach Nick Kassens said. “It was a tough tournament with some real quality teams.”


Grafton put itself in line for the team title by reaching championship matches in six of seven positions.


The Hawks got first-place finishes in singles from senior Jake Willms at No. 2 and sophomore Sam Bucheger at No. 3. Both went 3-0.


In their finals, Willms outlasted Cedarburg’s Mitch Ramuta, 6-3, 2-6, 11-9, and Bucheger edged Steven Mulvey of Pius, 3-6, 6-4, 12-10.


Grafton’s other first came from the No. 2 duo of Andrew Mosin and Tommy Makela, who won twice before receiving a forfeit from a Greenfield team in the final.

Miller, Salm, Tobianski and Huertas maintain Hawks’ state-leading pace in 1,600; Port wins twice in NSC races

A familiar group continued to propel the Grafton boys’ track and field team last Friday at Arrowhead High School.

Not only did the 1,600-meter relay of Sam Miller, Matt Salm, Patrick Tobianski and Erick Huertas race to first place at the annual Myrhum Invitational, they did so in impressive fashion.


With a time of 3 minutes, 21.11 seconds, the group lowered its state-best effort this season by more than two seconds.


“They continue to run very well,” Grafton coach Kevin Kriegel said. “Our hope is to keep getting faster and break the school record.”


That mark — 3.20.0 set last year — appears to be well within reach.


The relay win gave the Black Hawks 10 of their 44 points, good for seventh place in 16-team meet.


Huertas, a senior, also figured heavily in the scoring by taking second in the 400 dash (49.21) and third in the 200 dash (22.61).
