Porous defense fails to keep softball team from rallying for 19-9 victory

Persistent offense allowed the Port Washington High School softball team to withstand a shaky defensive effort last Friday.

Despite committing 11 errors, the Pirates hammered their way past Campbellsport, 19-9, in a nonconference makeup game called after five innings.

Port’s fielding woes helped the Cougars score six runs in the second inning and hold an 8-4 lead after three frames.

However, the Pirates erupted for 10 runs in the top of the fourth and never trailed again. They scored in every inning, capped by a five-run outburst in the fifth.

Port finished with 15 hits and was aided by seven Campbellsport errors.

A runner-up finish at No. 1 doubles gave the Port Washington High School boys’ tennis team a boost in the South Milwaukee Invitational last Saturday.

Seniors Evan Lopez and Luke Richard combined for a 2-1 match record in the eight-team tournament.

After winning their first match, 6-2, 6-1, against a Greenfield duo, Lopez and Richard outlasted a Whitnall team, winning a 7-5 tiebreaker.

The Port team then lost the title match, 6-3, 6-0, to a Muskego duo.

“They showed why they make such a great team,” Port coach Jenny Huettl said of Lopez and Richard.

The Pirates scored 16 points in the tournament.

In singles competition, Port got a third-place finish from Matt Kirmse at No. 4 and fourths from Jeff Ross at No. 2 and B.J. LaForest at No. 3.

Kirmse, a freshman, defeated a Greenfield player in the first round, then lost to a Muskego foe before defeating an Oak Creek opponent in straight sets.
