Adversity not too big for Rockets to tackle PDF Print E-mail

Sidelined starters, road foe can’t stop CG-Belgium as it rolls to Big East victory

Although the Cedar Grove-Belgium Rockets have a winning football record, their season has not been without adversity.

There was the forfeit of a opening-week victory over Kohler/Sheboygan Lutheran/Sheboygan Christian after it was discovered Cedar Grove-Belgium used an ineligible player.

Last Friday, the Rockets had to deal with injuries to several starters, including quarterback Josh Weiss and standout lineman Dan Gjertson.

That didn’t seem to matter much, though, as host Cedar Grove-Belgium rolled past Howards Grove, 42-13, on the strength of a 28-point second quarter.

The win improved the Rockets to 3-1 in Big East Conference play. Howards Grove fell to 0-4.

“We relied on our defense to neutralize things until we got it going,” Rockets coach Dan Schreurs said.

“I didn’t want to rush the new kids into anything elaborate.”

Jason von Heimburg got the start at quarterback and more than held his own. Despite attempting just five passes, the sophomore threw for two touchdowns, including a 55-yard strike to Ethan Brochtrup that gave the Rockets a 14-0 lead in the second quarter.

Schreurs noted that von Heimburg started for him last year on the junior-varsity team.

“I think that’s a nice advantage I have. Being the JV coach last year, I know all these kids already,” Schreurs said.

“I felt comfortable looking at (von Heimburg) through the facemask.”

Both teams got off to sluggish starts, trading punts and an interception thrown by von Heimburg before Taylor Heiden put the Rockets ahead for good with 61-yard punt return for a touchdown.

It was Heiden’s second punt return for a score this year.

Individual champs help CG-Belgium nail down both team titles at home meet

After a challenging week of practice, Cedar Grove-Belgium cross-country coach Les Paul thought his runners might be a bit tired for their home invitational Sept. 10.

Not so much. Ian Ison and Emily Sass turned in first-place finishes to lead the Rockets to boys’ and girls’ team titles.

Ison, a junior, won the 5,000-meter race in 17 minutes, 42 seconds, and teammate Stephen Lavey was a close second in 17:45.3.

The Cedar Grove-Belgium boys scored 51 points, two fewer than runner-up Omro in a nine-team field.

Sheboygan Lutheran was third with 56 points, followed by Prairie School (100), St. Mary’s Springs (151), Oostburg (165), Mishicot (166), Shoreland Lutheran (236) and Random Lake/Ozaukee (239).

The Rockets’ other scoring finishes were Eric Isken in ninth (18:42), Abel Brockman in 19th (19:29) and James Krauska in 20th (19:33).

Pirates edged by Edgewood in soccer quad PDF Print E-mail

In a soccer game decided by the narrowest of margins, two penalty kicks made the difference.

Madison Edgewood found the net, and host Port Washington failed on its attempt, giving Edgewood a 1-0 win in the title match of the annual Port Quad last Saturday.

“It was a hard-fought game. Madison Edgewood has a tough side,” Port coach Sean O’Brien said.

“We had some chances but couldn’t come up with a goal.”

After a scoreless first half, Edgewood broke the deadlock at 48 minutes.

The Pirates’ persistent comeback effort paid off in the 80th minute when they drew a foul in the box. But the missed chance allowed Edgewood to hang on.

“It was a tough loss, but we played well,” O’Brien said.

O’Brien said his team was slowed by the loss of three players due to injuries: Charles Schlessinger, A.J.Voeller and Jude Pargulski.
