Co-op hockey team drops Manitowoc but can’t stay with Homestead in pair of games at Ozaukee Center

The Grafton/Port Washington Ice Hawks doubled their win total before taking one on the chin from a top hockey foe at the Ozaukee Ice Center last weekend.

The Hawks beat Manitowoc United, 7-2, on Friday, but lost to Homestead, 12-0, on Saturday.


Against Manitowoc, Eric Dondlinger scored Grafton/Port’s first goal on the first line shift of the game.


After Manitowoc evened the score, Jeff Wade, Nate Perez and Taylor Snider combined to score five unanswered goals that put the Hawks in command.


“With our early season injuries, we have had to juggle our lines literally every game, and this was the first game these three had played together,” Grafton/Port coach Dan Wade said.


“They were able to get out on the break and create high-quality scoring opportunities.”


Jeff Wade finished the night with two goals and three assists. Perez had two goals and two assists, and Snider added a goal and two assists. Dondlinger scored once.


“It was our Student Night, and the energy from the crowd and Eric’s first goal really got us going,” coach Wade said.


Against Homestead, things got out of hand quickly for the Hawks, who were playing their fifth game in eight days.


Grafton/Port missed two early power-play scoring chances and trailed, 3-0, after one period. Homestead added three goals late in the second period and kept the pressure on in the third.

Free-throw problems help leave young Port girls’ team searching for its first victory

Don’t be surprised if the Port Washington girls’ basketball team spends extra time on shooting practice this week.

Sharpening their touch, especially at the free-throw line, became a top priority for the Pirates after they struggled offensively in two losses last week.

After losing to Whitefish Bay Dominican in a nonconference play Dec. 3, Port fell to Homestead, 62-29, in the North Shore Conference opener for both teams Friday.


Although the Pirates stayed within striking distance in the first half Friday, they were outscored, 33-12, the rest of the way.


“We’re young, and we’re still learning how to play good basketball, and that’s tough to do in the North Shore,” Port coach Brian Johnson said.


“Right now, we’re taking it one quarter at a time.”


After falling behind, 17-6, at the end of the first quarter, Port trailed by only 29-18 at intermission. However, Homestead sealed the outcome with a 15-8 run in the third period.


Poor free-throw shooting continued to bug the Pirates, who were only 22% (3 for 14) at the line.

Disciplined play helps Port boys’ basketball team secure Redwing Classic title

Patience pays.

Just ask the Port Washington boys’ basketball team, which wasted no time taking the advice to heart in the title game of the Redwing Holiday Classic last Saturday.


After controlling the opening tip, the Pirates ran 90 seconds off the clock before taking their first shot against the aggressive defense of host Sheboygan South.


When the shot came, Patrick McDonald drilled a three-pointer that put Port up for good on the way to an eye-opening, 58-41 win.


It was the kind of discipline and focus that left Pirates coach Brian Hebein impressed.


“We just kept moving the ball against their man-to-man and working for a good shot. We had at least 15 passes before we took it,” Hebein said.


“It wasn’t anything the coaches told them to do. The guys went out there and did it on their own.


“It was a great start for us.”


That start fueled a strong first half for the Port, which raced to a 21-13 lead by the end of the opening quarter and stretched the margin to 36-22 by intermission.


Although South played the Pirates on near-even terms the rest of the way, it couldn’t make a serious dent in the deficit.


“We traded baskets with them in the third quarter and kept that halftime margin,” Hebein said.


“Then, in the fourth quarter, we turned up our defense and held them to seven points.”


As they did in the tournament semifinals the previous night, the Pirates used balanced scoring to take control.


Junior guard Al’Tavius Jackson had a game-high 18 points for Port, which also got 12 from McDonald and 11 from Sam Weiland.
