Togetherness pays off as Pirates get 2nd place in girls’ meet, 3rd from boys

Tight pack performances paid off for the Port Washington cross-country teams at the Papermaker Invitational in Kimberly last Saturday.sports3

Cashing in with closely bunched finishes, the Pirates secured runner-up honors in the girls’ portion of the meet and were third in the boys’ competition.

The Port girls scored 85 points, trailing only Kimberly (49) in a 10-team field.

The Port boys’ 60 points left them behind Green Bay Preble (43) and Kimberly (59) out of nine teams.

Senior Abeba Sullivan led the Port girls with a second-place time of 19 minutes, 53 seconds on a rain-soaked 5,000-meter course.

The Pirates’ other scoring finishes  came from Emma Meyer in 19th (21:23), Brenna Kautz in 20th (21:24), Jill Cavanaugh in 21st (21:26) and Alexis Reichardt in 23rd (21:31). Also for Port, Clare Goodman  placed 34th (22:30) and Katie Erlandson was 50th (23:35).

Port girls’ coach Joe Adamak was pleased with his team’s showing but said the bunched scoring wasn’t by design.

“It worked out, but it was pack finishing but not running,” he said. “That’s just how they ended up.

Loss to Homestead gives Pirates a dose of reality in bid for return to playoffs

After a healthy dose of enthusiasm generated by a big road win the previous week, the Port Washington Pirates were handed a harsh football reminder last Friday.sports1

Perennial power Homestead served up the lesson, grinding out a 29-7 victory over host Port in North Shore Conference play.

After piling up 504 yards in a 55-34 romp over Cedarburg, the Pirates’ offense struggled against the defending WIAA Division 2 state champion.

“We lost to a real good football team,” Port coach John Bunyan said.

“Homestead is big, talented and well-coached. We didn’t execute well on offense, and they took advantage of that.”

Despite the final margin, coach Dave Keel’s Highlanders didn’t put the game away until the third quarter.

The Pirates had three first-half drives into Homestead territory, including a 54-yard march on their opening possession that ended with an interception in the end zone.

Running back Braden Woldt, who rushed for a game-high 125 yards and two touchdowns, helped Homestead slowly but surely take command. The senior’s 3-yard scoring burst less than three minutes into the second half capped a 57-yard drive that put the Highlanders on top, 22-0.

On its next three possessions, Port managed only 27 yards on 19 plays from scrimmage as Homestead’s defense refused to bend.
