Hockey team stays on the attack but loses three games during round-robin weekend 

Despite outshooting their opponents, the Grafton/Port Washington Ice Hawks lost three games last weekend, as well as another hockey player for the season.

In a four-team, round-robin tournament the Hawks hosted at the Ozaukee Ice Center, they fell to Eau Claire North, 5-3, on Friday; to Viroqua, 11-3, on Saturday; and to Greendale, 12-1, on Sunday.

All that came even though Grafton/Port posted a cumulative shot advantage, 98-83.

The Hawks’ best chance to win was Friday when they took the ice with energy and aggressive defense.

Grafton/Port fell behind, 3-0, but rallied. Senior forward Tim Grams led the comeback with a hat trick, assisted by Nate Perez, Bryce Fisk and Bubba Holzer.

The Hawks trailed, 3-1, before blistering the net with 25 shots in the third period. Although they scored twice in the period, North matched that effort.

Duening-led Spartans use front-line strength to spoil CG-B boys’ opener

An athletic opponent with a strong inside game didn’t provide a favorable matchup for the Cedar Grove-Belgium boys’ basketball team in its season opener Nov. 15.

Powered by the front-line play of Andrew Duening, West Bend West rolled to a 72-44 nonconference win over the host Rockets.

Duening scored a game-high 30 points for the Spartans, who raced to a 20-7 lead after one quarter and continued to pull away until the final period.

“We’ve got a ways to go,” Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Jim Meinen said.

“West Bend is a very athletic and strong inside. We have an entirely new system, and it’s going to take us a little while to learn things.”

West took control quickly with the low-post work of Duening, a 6-foot-6 junior. The Spartans also got 12 points from forward Jacob Duening, Andrew’s twin brother.

“He is a very nice player with nice moves,” Meinen said of Andrew Duening. “We thought he would give us some trouble inside, and he did.

“One of our concerns coming into the season was our interior post presence. It’s something we have to work on.”

The Rockets, who are rebuilding after losing most their top players from last season to graduation, trailed, 38-18, at halftime.

Reinhardt takes over reins of Grafton girls’ team with shared focus on winning

It didn’t take long for members of the Grafton girls’ basketball team to make a good impression on their new coach.

“They’re a very, very hard-working group of kids, very coachable,” said Steve Reinhardt, who has started his first season at the varsity helm with the Black Hawks.

“I really like their ability to work together and teach each other. They have great intensity in practice.”

Reinhardt knows a few things about basketball and how it should be played. He has a tough act to follow at Grafton, succeeding longtime coach Bob Maronde, who stepped down after 19 seasons, two state championships and six conference titles to take over the school’s boys’ basketball program.

However, Reinhardt won eight league championships in 18 years with the Slinger girls’ team before spending last season coaching a Brown Deer squad that went 10-14 with no seniors.
