Grafton soccer team shows its resilience with comeback victory over University School

The 2013 season has only just begun, but the Grafton Black Hawks have already managed to make a loud soccer statement.

After thumping Nicolet in a North Shore Conference match to open the year, coach Don Arnold’s boys’ team rallied to edge University School of Milwaukee, 3-2, in a double-overtime game Aug. 22.


Brendan Larsen’s goal in the 98th minute, assisted by Adam Huibregste, capped a comeback in which host Grafton overcame a 2-1 halftime deficit.


“University School came to play, and it showed,” Arnold said. “We outshot them, but they made the most of their scoring chances and got us in an early hole.”


Huibregste, a junior, put Grafton up quickly with a goal in the eighth minute, assisted by Ben Lorge.


However, the Wildcats wasted no time responding. Jack Hiller scored an equalizing goal at 16 minutes and found the net again at 38 minutes to put USM on top at the break.

CG-Belgium football team more than equal to task in opener against Milwaukee foe

The Cedar Grove-Belgium football team hasn’t had a chance to knock heads with Division 1 foes very often.

In last Friday’s season opener against Milwaukee King, the Rockets made the most of the opportunity.

Combining aggressive defense with efficient offense, coach Chris Zablocki’s squad muscled its way to a 35-2, nonconference win at home.

“We only have 300 kids and going up against a school of 1,500 is a real challenge,” Zablocki said.

“It’s not easy finding nonconference games, and this is the way it worked out for us. We looked at it as a great opportunity.”

Except for a missed blocking assignment that led to a botched punt and gave King a first-quarter safety, the Rockets had little trouble taking charge.

Fast start can’t save Express as Lakes season ends with 9-1 loss to Cedarburg in Northern Division final

The Grafton Express knew they were underdogs entering a Land O’ Lakes baseball showdown with Cedarburg last weekend.

Early in a Northern Division playoff final Saturday, that didn’t seem to matter to an upset-minded team that jumped to a 1-0 lead over host Cedarburg.


But the suspense quickly ended when the Mercs scored three runs in the third inning and continued to pull away for a 9-1 victory that sent them into the league’s grand championship playoffs.


Cedarburg, which finished two games ahead of Grafton in the Northern Division during the regular season, had the benefit of two home games against the Express in last weekend’s division playoff final.


Thanks to Saturday’s win, the Mercs didn’t need a second contest.


Grafton started fast with a first-inning run on back-to-back triples by Max Pruefer and Robbie Doring.


However, Cedarburg pitcher Taylor Piel settled down and retired the next eight batters he faced. Piel went the distance, scattering seven hits.

In the third, the Mercs did all the scoring they needed.


Nick Boehnlein started the rally with an infield hit and scored on Brandon Nedoma’s single. John VandenBerg followed with an RBI double and scored on Ross Zahour’s single to put Cedarburg up, 3-1.
