They barely beat one of their biggest rivals and instantly became their biggest fans.

Such was the case for the Cedar Grove-Belgium Rockets, who kept alive their hope of winning a share of the Central Lakeshore Conference girls’ soccer title by edging Ozaukee, 3-2, on May 24.

Cedar Grove-Belgium had to win to remain one game behind first-place Howards Grove in the CLC title chase. The Rockets came through but still needed Ozaukee to defeat Howards Grove in a makeup game Tuesday, May 29, to get a share of the crown.

Host Ozaukee tried to be the spoiler by grabbing a 1-0 lead on a goal by Mickey Burns, assisted by Katie Bares’ corner kick.

However, the Rockets pulled even when Ashli von Heimburg scored off a free kick by Alex Buechler.

After having an apparent goal by Natalie Clark called off on a delayed offsides call, the Warriors found the net again. Clark broke free down the right side and passed the ball to Lizzie Janke, whose goal put Ozaukee up, 2-1.

The second half belonged to the Rockets. After Ashley DeSmidt scored to tie the game in the 42nd minute, Halie Schieffer capped the comeback with the winning goal at 62 minutes.

“At halftime we spoke about the importance of playing well, staying healthy and competing at a high level,” Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Elias Garza said.

One-run loss in tussle with Greendale leaves Grafton baseball team with 2-2 record for first week of season

A near miss last Saturday left the Grafton High School baseball team with a split decision in its first four games this season.

After winning two of their first three games, the Black Hawks capped the week with a 3-2 home loss to Greendale in nonconference play.

Sophomore Nate Lukas pitched well for Grafton, turning in a complete-game effort that included eight strikeouts and only one walk. However, the Black Hawks were unable to muster enough offense against a pair of Greendale pitchers.

After Greendale scored twice in the top of the third inning to build a 3-0 lead, Grafton got on the board in the bottom of the frame.

Will Birch started the rally with a walk but was retired when Kevin Scholz hit into a fielder’s choice. After Choo Weisflog drew another walk, Al Nennig and Beau Benzschawel delivered back-to-back RBI singles to cut the Black Hawks’  deficit to 3-2.

Grafton’s best scoring chance the rest of the way came in the sixth, when it put runners on second and third bases. However, the threat ended with two strikeouts.

“Nate pitched a gem and gave up only one earned run,” said Grafton coach Brian Durst, whose team committed four errors.

“He was sharp from the get-go, but we didn’t give him much run support.”

Aside from the sixth inning, the Black Hawks had only two hits.

Durst singled out the defensive work of catcher Tim Grams, who had 10 putouts and two assists. Included in his heads-up work was starting a 1-2-3 double play in the third inning.
