Top-seeded Pewaukee snaps Grafton’s win string in sectional semifinal battle

After seeing his team steamroll its way to 10 straight wins, Grafton boys’ soccer coach Don Arnold had every reason to believe the success would continue in a WIAA Division 2 sectional tournament last week.

Host Pewaukee had other ideas, though, outsloughing the Black Hawks for a 2-1 overtime win in a rain-soaked semifinal match Oct. 18.

The top-seeded Pirates prevailed just one minute into the extra session when Austin Rosenberger scored off a cross from Mike Graf.

The goal ended the Hawks’ postseason run and snapped a 10-game streak in which they outscored opponents, 58-2.

“Honestly, it’s a shock that we’re done,” said Arnold, whose team finished the season 15-7-1.

“I thought we were poised and ready to make a long run in the playoffs. I never thought about us losing.”

Port boys’ team edges Homestead to grab first conference title since 2007

The Port Washington boys’ cross-country team wasn’t about to let sloppy weather rain on its parade last Saturday.

Overcoming wind-driven rain and a strong challenge from Homestead at Tendick Park in Saukville, the Pirates raced to their first North Shore Conference title since 2007.

Led by senior Jason Marhal’s second-place finish, Port scored 45 points, five fewer than the runner-up Highlanders.

Cedarburg was a distant third with 77 points, followed by Whitefish Bay (94), Germantown (132), Grafton (161), Milwaukee Lutheran (193) and Nicolet (237).


“I’m really happy with how things worked out,” Pirates coach Mark Pasten said.

“Going in, I thought we would be favored, but I also thought Homestead would have a chance to win. Our guys came through really well.”

Marhal continued his season-long role as Port’s top runner, posting a 5,000-meter time of 16 minutes, 17 seconds. He trailed only Whitefish Bay’s Nate Gomoll, who successfully defended his conference title in 16:03.

Grafton soccer team blanks two more foes on way to sectional level

When the Grafton Black Hawks take the field for a WIAA Division 2 sectional semifinal soccer game this Thursday in Pewaukee, they will have no shortage of confidence.

All the Hawks have done in winning their last 10 games is outscore their opponents, 58-2. It’s an eye-opening streak  with eight shutouts, including a pair in home regional play last week.

In a regional final Oct. 11, Grafton blanked Milwaukee Lutheran, 4-0. That win came after the Hawks trounced Milwaukee Messmer, 11-0, in an Oct. 9 semifinal game called after one half.

“We got on this run when our players started to believe in themselves,” said Hawks coach Don Arnold, whose fourth-seeded team will take a 15-6-1 record into its match against top-seeded Pewaukee (16-2-3).
