Doubleheader gems by Scharnweber, pitching trio give Port baseball team a season debut to remember

Few baseball teams have the chance to celebrate a no-hitter in their season opener.

And getting two no-nos in their first two games of the year is downright outrageous.

Nonetheless, that’s what the Port Washington Pirates came home with last Saturday after they overwhelmed host Two Rivers, 10-0 and 15-1, in a nonconference doubleheader.

Senior Dylan Scharnweber started the mound mastery with a six-inning gem in the opener. He struck out 12, walked none and came close to a perfect game. Kiel’s only two base runners reached on errors.

In the second game, three Port pitchers — Sean Haley, Ben Schueller and Lukas Michels — combined for a five-inning no-hitter.

Haley worked the first two innings. He struck out two, walked two and threw five wild pitches, including three that led to Two Rivers’ only run in the second.

Schueller pitched the next two frames, striking out four with no walks, and Michels fanned the side in the fifth.

“It was really exciting,” Port coach Ryan Finnerty said of the memorable twin-bill sweep. “Dylan pitched a great game in the opener, and in the second game we really didn’t notice the no-hitter as much, but it was there.”

Scharnweber threw only 69 pitches and “had good stuff the whole way,” Finnerty said. “He relied on his fastball and was spotting his pitches well and mixing in a curve.”

A shorthanded Cedar Grove-Belgium girls’ soccer team struggled to a 1-2 record in three Central Lakeshore Conference games last week.

In addition to missing their head coach due to his father’s funeral, the Rockets had several players sidelined with injuries.

After losing twice, Cedar Grove-Belgium bounced back for a 9-3 home win over Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah on May 21.

Haleigh Bares scored three goals, and A.J. Caldwell and Brittany Teunissen had two apiece for the Rockets. Faith Buechler and Ashli Von Heimburg each added a goal.

“Autumn Beutel played an excellent game, shutting down Elkhart Lake’s best player,” coach Elias Garza said.

The win improved Cedar Grove-Belgium to 6-5-1 in the conference and 9-8-1 overall.

The Rockets couldn’t keep pace in a league road loss May 19.

“We scored the first goal early in the game, but we had so many key players missing it was hard to line up,” Garza said.

Black Hawks finally get offense on track but have to settle for draw with Slinger

A seesaw battle left the Grafton girls’ soccer team with a 3-3 tie against Slinger in a nonconference match last Friday.

After losing an early 1-0 lead, Grafton fell behind in the second half before rallying to salvage the draw.

After Slinger took a 3-2 lead in the 77th minute, the Black Hawks countered with the equalizer at 82 minutes with an unassisted goal by Mindy Peterson.

Grafton had a chance to go ahead late in the game but failed to convert on a penalty kick.

“It was quite an exciting game,” Hawks coach Don Arnold said.

“We have had trouble scoring, but we were finally able to put the ball in the back of the net.”
