Port boys’ team turns to mix of senior, young talent in bid for improved season

With several of its best players last year lost to graduation, the Port Washington boys’ soccer team is searching for new leadership this fall.

Early season numbers indicate the Pirates have no shortage of applicants for the job.

With nearly 50 players out for soccer, varsity coach Mike Bultman and his staff find themselves searching for a winning blend of talent.

“The numbers are there, but it all depends on how they step up,” said Bultman, whose team is coming off a 5-15-2 season in 2011, including a 1-6 finish in the North Shore Conference.

“The junior-varsity guys last year had a fantastically cohesive unit. Hopefully they can bring that to the next level.”

Cedarburg completes perfect Lakes campaign, leaving battle for second

The Cedarburg Mercs capped off an undefeated season in Land O’ Lakes baseball Saturday, and in the process forced a two-way tie for second place in the Northern Division standings.

The host Mercs had wrapped up the divisional title weeks ago, but faced second-place Saukville in the regular season finale. The determined Saints took an early lead, but eventually fell to Cedarburg, 7-4.

Saukville scored three runs in the first inning, thanks to a two-run triple by Josh Hein followed by a single by Kyle Dieringer.

Cedarburg answered the scoring in the bottom of the first, keyed by four straight hits. John Vanden Berg and John Regnitz each collected RBI singles, and the final tally of the frame came home on a sacrifice fly by Ross Zahour.

The Mercs took control of the game from that point, scoring a single run in the second inning and three more times in the fourth.

Nolan Gilbertson had three hits for the victors, while Hein and Ian Tucker had two hits each for Saukville.


The win went to pitcher Zach Lauterbach, whose Mercs finished the season with a perfect 18-0 record.

The loss forced Saukville into a two-way tie with Grafton for second place in the standings.

As an undefeated team, the Mercs automatically qualify to represent the Northern Division in the LOL Grand Championship playoff.

Grafton boys’ soccer banks on depth, vesatility in NSC wars and beyond

Playing competitively in the perennially tough North Shore Conference is almost never a problem for the Grafton boys’ soccer team, which regularly finishes in the top half of the league standings.

With the Black Hawks returning most of their talent from a 2011 team that went 4-3 in NSC play, coach Don Arnold has hopes for bigger things this season.

“On paper, we are better, no question about it,” said Arnold, who welcomed more than a dozen varsity veterans to practice this week.

“We will have some depth and a lot of guys who can play different positions. But the biggest thing for us is going to be attitude — how much they want to put into this season and what they want to get out of it.”

Grafton, which was 12-7-1 overall last season, has nine seniors vying for starting positions, including defenders Andrew Best, Jake Wilde and Alec Rosenberg, midfielders Jacob Kellett, Wolfgang Pilarski, Michael Stockhausen and Nick Bocanegra and forwards Alex Lorbecki and Aaron Hodges.

Lorbecki, Hodges and Kellett were the team’s top three offensive threats last year.
