Catch-up game leaves Grafton lost on the road PDF Print E-mail

Playing from behind didn’t work well for the Grafton girls’ soccer team on a trip to Shorewood last Friday.


Surrendering two goals during a four-minute span in the middle of a nonconference match, the Black Hawks couldn’t recover in a 3-2 loss.

The game was scoreless until Shorewood found the net in the 43rd minute. The Greyhounds struck again just two minutes into the second half, taking a 2-0 advantage.

Grafton got on the board in the 65th minute when Rhylan Gosselin scored with an assist from Malaya Sperber, but Shorewood countered with a goal at 84 minutes.

Although Monica Geiser’s unassisted goal in the 88th minute pulled the Hawks within striking distance, it was too little too late.

“You have to come out focused. You can’t pick and choose when you want to play,” said Grafton coach Don Arnold, whose team slipped to 8-6-2 overall.

“It was a costly loss because it may have big implications for us in (WIAA) tournament seedings. Those are the kind of letdowns we can’t have.

“Hopefully, we will learn from it.”

Autumn Beutel went on a scoring rampage last week, leading the Cedar Grove-Belgium girls’ soccer team to two blowout wins in Big East Conference play.sports3

The junior scored four goals in each match, as the Rockets downed Sheboygan Christian, 7-2, on May 19, two days after a 10-0 victory over Random Lake.

Against visiting Christian, Beutel scored her first goal in the opening minute with an assist from Jessica Rose. The Rockets gave up two goals early in the second half, but Beutel found the net three more times, Sarah Morales had two goals and Brooke Keller added another.

Assists came from Laura Kerwin, Morales and Keller.

At Random Lake, the Rockets cruised after a slow start.

“Once the girls were able to make some adjustments, things began to open up for them,” Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Elias Garza said.

Keller matched Beutel’s four-goal output, and Morales and Rose had a goal apiece.

Keller and Beutel each had three assists.

The games left the Rockets with a 9-7 season record, including 9-6 in the conference. This week, they were scheduled to play Ozaukee on Tuesday and host Kohler at 6 p.m. Thursday.
