With quick-strike attack that chalks up 420 rushing yards, Port football team has little trouble sealing the deal against Waukesha North

It didn’t take long for the Port Washington Pirates to make a striking  impression on the football field this fall.

Slicing through an overmatched defense for 420 rushing yards, the Pirates rolled past Waukesha North for a 35-21 home win in their season opener last Friday night.


Port’s ground-heavy attack was propelled by the quick-hit duo of Tom Rose and Marty Franzkowiak, who combined to outgain North’s total offensive output.


Rose, a junior, rushed for 182 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries, as well as returning a kickoff 86 yards for a score.  Most of his yards and all of his scoring came in the first half, when the Pirates built a 14-point lead.


Franzkowiak, a senior, was close behind with 175 yards and two touchdowns on 13 attempts.


Combined with another 54 yards from quarterback Ben Schueller and tailback Bennett Fleischmann, the Pirates averaged nearly 10 yards per rush.


“I just felt we had a lot of speed in our backfield and could do some things against them,” Port coach John Bunyan said.


“When (North) took away our passing game, we decided to run the ball a little more. But I didn’t know we would have that much success.”


In his first varsity backfield start, Rose got things rolling for the Pirates in the first quarter with touchdowns runs of nine and 15 yards.

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.
