Bares-sparked rally in Brookfield tournament allows Ozaukee soccer team to open season with championship

After having its first two games this spring postponed because of unplayable field conditions, the Ozaukee girls’ soccer team was eager to get the ball rolling.

A season-opening tournament last Saturday turned the trick for the Warriors, who made the most of their chances in winning the Brookfield Academy Bash.

Coach Eric Liebergen’s squad won all three of its games, capping the run with a come-from-behind, 3-2 victory over St. Mary Central in the title match.

The Warriors fell behind, 2-0, but controlled play with a rally capped by Katie Bares’ game-winning goal in the 47th minute.

“It was a fast start to our season,” Liebergen said. “It feels pretty special for our team to battle back and get a quality win against a perennial state soccer participant.

“Central is a very good team. We hope to build off this experience.”

Ozaukee had scored two shutout wins in the six-team tournament before facing its toughest test.

Central wasted no time jumping ahead, grabbing a 2-0 lead on goals by Molly Britt in the second minute and Kelly Conn at four minutes.

With the tournament games shortened to 25-minute halves, Ozaukee had no time to waste in its comeback.

Natalie Clark got the Warriors on the board with an unassisted goal at 22 minutes.

Break in weather gives CB-Belgium boys chance to shine in home victory; girls take 3rd in their test

The Cedar Grove-Belgium boys’ track and field team isn’t at full strength yet, but you couldn’t tell from the outcome of its first outdoor meet of the season April 4.

The Rockets placed first in a home quadrangular meet, edging Sheboygan Lutheran, 81-79, in a battle for the top spot.

Random Lake was third with 55.5 point, and Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah had 17.5.

Cedar Grove-Belgium won eight events and had five second-place finishes.

“The boys had solid day in winning,  which was a surprise,” Rockets coach Les Paul said. “We still don’t have our full complement of people in events yet.”

Individual winners for the host team were Aaron Chier in the 100-meter dash (11.2 seconds), Adam Chier in the shot put (38 feet, 9 inches), Arjun Sehgal in the  400 dash (57.9), Derek Arndt in the 300 hurdles (50.6), Alex Giles in the 200 dash (24.5), Logan Peterson in the triple jump (40-3) and Joe Oelhafen in the high jump (4-10).

Cedar Grove-Belgium’s other win came from the 800 relay team of Brent Brochtrup, Aaron Chier, Giles and Peterson (1:40).

“Alex Giles and Aaron Chier looked real solid in their events this early,” Paul said.

Spring-vacation trip gives Grafton softball team no wins but plenty of diamond time

It’s not often that a winless three-game road trip provides much in the way of positives.

But victories aside, the Grafton High School softball team had a chance last week to open the season and enjoy spring vacation at the same time.

“We got a little better as the week went on,” Grafton coach Ken Hunt said after his squad played a trio of nonconference games in Foley, Ala.

After starting the season with a 10-8 loss to Foley on April 4, the Black Hawks fell twice April 5 — a 10-1 loss to Louisville Assumption (Ky.) and a 4-1 defeat at the hands of Gulf Shores (Ala.).

“At least we were able to get on the field. That was the big thing,” said Hunt, who noted that most area softball teams have been relegated to indoor practices because of Wisconsin’s uncooperative spring weather.

“We didn’t play that well, but the teams down there are in mid-season. If we played them 10 times later in the season, I think we would win most of the games.”

Against Foley, Grafton got off a great start and built an 8-0 lead by the third inning.
