Sluggish start keeps Hawks on short end PDF Print E-mail

One of the first goals for the Grafton High School football team this season was building confidence, especially in its new triple-option offensive scheme.


With that step taken, the Black Hawks have to work on starting stronger in games.

The latest case in point came last Friday when Grafton fell behind, 17-0, and couldn’t recover in a 31-14 homecoming loss to Nicolet.

“We got off to a slow start again, and it hurt us,” Grafton coach Ben Chossek said.

“Nicolet took it to us a little bit physically early in the game, and we didn’t really respond, which was disappointing. We started to get that going in the second quarter,
but by then we had to climb out of another hole.”

The Hawks, who matched their season-high scoring output with a pair of fourth-period touchdowns, had a good shot at their first win against a foe that like them
started the night 0-3 in the North Shore Conference.

However, Nicolet jumped ahead to stay with two short scoring drives in the opening quarter and never trailed.

The Knights capped a four-play, 43-yard march with a 30-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Brandon Kappel to Bryce Bowen with 5 minutes, 10 seconds left.
Bowen snagged the ball off a deflection and raced into the end zone.

A short time later, the lead grew to 14-0 on a 5-yard scoring run by Treland Jenkins.

Grafton’s defense stiffened in the second period, but Nicolet padded its lead with 4:09 left when Kappel kicked a 21-yard field goal.

Compounding the Hawks’ frustrations was having a touchdown called back that could have pulled them within 17-7 late in the second quarter.

After a scoreless third period, Grafton got on the board midway through the final quarter. Quarterback Matt Weisflog directed a nine-play, 77-yard drive that
culminated in a 13-yard touchdown pass to tight end Beau Benzschawel and pulled Grafton within 17-7 with 5:40 left.

Nicolet answered with a 48-yard scoring run by Jenkins to make it 24-7.

On the Hawks’ next possession, they rolled 80 yards in seven plays, with Weisflog tossing a 14-yard touchdown strike to Benzschawel. The score pulled Grafton
within reach at 24-14 with 3:55 left.

However, the Knights sealed the outcome with a 16-yard touchdown run by Kappel two minutes later.

“We knew from film that Nicolet was a good team, but we also knew that we could stay with them,” Chossek said.

“We just needed to get off to a better start and get a few more stops at crucial times.”

Weisflog, a sophomore, had one of his best games of the season. He led Grafton in rushing with 66 yards on 18 carries, including a 38-yard keeper, and completed
10 of 25 passes for 131 yards.

Benzschawel, a 6-foot-6-inch sophomore, was Weisflog’s chief target. He finished with six catches for 62 yards.

Although he was disappointed with the loss, which dropped the Hawks to 0-6 overall, Chossek praised his young team’s comeback.

“Our players continue to fight and compete,” he said. “They’ve got a great grasp of what we’re trying to do.

“It’s just a matter of getting off to a better start so that we’re not always playing from behind. It’s difficult when you’re always chasing everybody.”

This Friday, Grafton will continue North Shore play with a 7 p.m. game at Whitefish Bay (3-3 overall, 2-2 conference).

The Port Washington volleyball team made Parents Night a success Sept. 22 by defeating Whitefish Bay for its first North Shore Conference win of the season.

The Pirates started strong, winning the first two games, 25-16 and 25-23. After a 25-23 loss in the third game, Port rallied for a 28-26 victory in the deciding game of the match.PORT WASHINGTON’S Caity Tydrick set the ball for a teammate in the face of a tall challenge from a Sheboygan Lutheran blocker during Saturday‘s Port Invitational.

The Pirates overcame a seven-point deficit for what coach Deb Miller described as “an amazing win.”

Port’s leaders included Brynna Prellwitz and Caity Tydrick, who each served seven aces.

Mikayla Hilton and Brittany Swartwout had eight and seven kills, respectively.

Kelsey Lilly led the team with 14 assists. Alex Stammer had 31 service receptions and 16 digs.

Last Saturday, the Pirates shared third place in their annual home invitational.

Milwaukee Lutheran won the title, and Sheboygan Lutheran was second. Port tied for third with Shorewood.

This week, the Pirates will play at Germantown at 6:30 p.m. Thursday and participate in the Ozaukee Tournament in Fredonia on Saturday.

On Oct. 4, Port will host Cedarburg in a Senior Night match at 6:30 p.m.

A hat trick by Kyle Kirst propelled Cedar Grove-Belgium to a 6-3 win over host Ozaukee in a Central Lakeshore Conference boys’ soccer game Monday.

Kirst scored the game’s first two goals, including one assisted by John Schmidt, as the Rockets jumped ahead early. The lead grew to 3-0 by halftime when a corner kick by Josh Beaudry was redirected by Kirst to a goal by Schmidt.OZAUKEE’S Johannes Kloiber (left) and Cedar Grove-Belgium’s Christian O’Donnell battled for the ball during a Central Lakeshore Conference match Monday.             Photo by Sam Arendt

When Schmidt and Kirst added goals in the first 10 minutes of the second period, the margin grew to 5-0.

Ozaukee made things interesting by scoring three unanswered goals, by Johannes Kloiber, Ryan Klippel and Patrick Kroening.

However, the Rockets regained control with a goal and improved their CLC record to 4-5. Ozaukee fell to 1-8.

“Ozaukee has a much improved team,” Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Eric Miller said. “We played well early, but we let them back in the game a little bit in the second half.”

Ozaukee coach John Annis singled out the play of his scoring players as well as Kaleb Mabry and Brad Lemke on offense and Brad Collins, Hunter Radtke and Jake Wagner on defense.

Howards Grove 4, CG-Belgium 1

The Rockets fell behind late in the first half and couldn’t recover in a conference loss at home Sept. 15.

After Howards Grove took a 1-0 lead in the 23rd minute, Cedar Grove-Belgium pulled even with a goal from Schmidt, assisted by Kirst, three minutes later.

However, the Tigers pulled away with goals at 30 and 33 minutes and added an insurance score in the second period.

“It was disappointing because I thought we dominated play,” Miller said. “We had ball possession probably 80% of the time, but we still lost by three.

“Howards Grove had three great goals that we couldn’t do much about.”

CG-Belgium 3, Sheboygan Lutheran 2 (OT)

Josh Ruppel’s goal two minutes into overtime gave the Rockets to a home win over the Central Lakeshore’s last-place team Sept. 13.

The sudden-death score ended a see-saw game in which Cedar Grove-Belgium couldn’t protect leads of 1-0 and 2-1 in regulation.

The Rockets took a 1-0 edge when Schmidt scored with an assist from Kirst. Lutheran pulled even at 1-1 by halftime.

When Ruppel fed Kirst for a goal early in the second period, the Rockets regained the lead. However, Lutheran got another tying goal on a questionable play that could have been called a hand ball, Miller said.

“We didn’t play our best game,” he said. “I had a lot of people playing in different positions, and we had some problems adjusting.”

Cedar Grove-Belgium will resume CLC play Thursday with a 6 p.m. home game against Oostburg and then play a 4:30 p.m. match at Random Lake on Sept. 27.

Warriors struggle to find net

Ozaukee couldn’t use the momentum from its first conference victory in three years on Sept. 8 to pull out any games last week.

On Saturday, the Warriors lost three games at the Kiel Invitational, falling to St. Lawrence Seminary (3-0), Little Chute (7-0) and Roncalli (6-1).

Sean Murphy scored Ozaukee’s only goal with an assist from Brad Collins.

“We started off playing hard but were unable to keep it up for three games. Due to our youth and inexperience, we made some mistakes,” Annis said.

On Sept. 15, the Warriors lost, 10-0, to Central Lakeshore Conference leader Kohler.

“We played poorly in the first half, allowing nine goals to a team which is a well-oiled machine,” Annis said.

“The second half we regrouped and worked harder to keep the ball out of their hands.”

Ozaukee goalkeeper Tyler Klippel had seven saves.

This Thursday, the Warriors will play a 6 p.m. game at Random Lake
