Early deficit no big problem in first-round win that sends CG-B football team to Bonduel

Nothing comes easily at playoff time, even for heavy favorites.

It took the Cedar Grove-Belgium football team a quarter to answer a wake-up call against an upstart foe last Friday, but once the Rockets got started, they wasted little time ending the suspense.


Blending two touchdown passes with a relentless rushing attack, host Cedar Grove-Belgium rolled past Oconto, 36-15, in the opening round of the WIAA Division 5 playoffs.


The win advances the top-seeded Rockets to a level-two game this Friday, when they face host Bonduel at 7 p.m.


“We knew Oconto would be tough. They come from a very, very good football conference (Olympian-Packerland-Small) that has hard-hitting, hard-nosed teams,” Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Chris Zablocki said.


“They caught us early with a touchdown, but our kids responded. Every game is four quarters long, and we were able to take control after the first quarter.”


A 12-yard touchdown run by Brandon Tousey allowed the eighth-seeded Blue Devils to take a 7-0 lead into the second period.


However, the next two quarters belonged to Cedar Grove-Belgium. Despite a brisk wind that typically plays havoc with passes, the Rockets didn’t hesitate to go airborne.

Woolf leads trio of boys, White advances for girls in Division 2 cross country

There will be no shortage of Grafton runners at this weekend’s WIAA Division 2 state cross-country meet.

Three boys and one girl will represent the Black Hawks after turning in qualifying performances at the Shorewood Sectional last Friday.


In the boys’ 5,000-meter race at Kern Park, Grafton’s state-worthy finishers were senior Jacob Woolf (sixth place in 16 minutes, 48 seconds), junior Alec Weinhold (seventh in 16:51) and sophomore Parker White (eighth in 16:51).


Senior Elise White advanced for the Grafton girls with a 4,000-meter time of 15:56, good for seventh place.


“It was definitely a good meet for us,” Hawks coach Kevin Kriegel said. “To have four runners get through to state in a tough sectional like that is great.”


The Grafton boys were a solid third in the 10-team standings with 60 points, trailing only state powers Wisconsin Lutheran (35) and Shorewood (48).


Woolf earned his second straight trip to state after placing 25th in the Division 2 final last year.


The Hawks’ other scoring finishers Friday were Max Jensen in 19th (17:36) and Erick Huertas in 20th (17:40), followed by Patrick Tobianski in 35th (18:28) and Joe Docter in 36th (18:29).

Late rally lifts CG-Belgium past Oostburg in showdown for conference championship

If a football team’s mettle is best measured by how it plays at crunch time, the Cedar Grove-Belgium Rockets passed a tough test with high marks last Friday night.

They also grabbed their biggest reward of the season to date: their third straight Central Lakeshore Conference title in a showdown with longtime rival Oostburg.

After seeing an 18-point, third-quarter lead fade, Cedar Grove-Belgium faced a 27-24 deficit in the closing minutes. But there was still time for one more drive, and the Rockets made the most of it.

Quarterback Drew Emperley found wide receiver Logan Peterson open for an 8-yard touchdown pass with just 45 seconds left and then added a two-point conversion run, as Cedar Grove-Belgium surged ahead to stay, 32-27.

When Justin Obbink intercepted a desperation pass on Oostburg’s final possession, the celebration officially began.

“It was a great high school football game,” said Rockets coach Chris Zablocki, whose team finished 5-0 in CLC play, improved to 8-1 overall and received a No. 1 seed for the WIAA Division 5 playoffs that start this week.

“We had our chances to put Oostburg away earlier, but we failed to score twice in the red zone and fumbled five times and lost three of them. It came down to the end, and our kids did a great job of executing.

“It’s a credit to them and our coaching staff. Our seniors really showed their leadership.”

Both teams started the night with 4-0 conference records, setting the stage for a winner-take-all regular-season finale.
