Strong start not enough for Port baseball team in season-ending loss to Erfourth-led Highlanders

The Port Washington Pirates had every intention of advancing past the first round of the WIAA baseball playoffs last week.

Homestead’s Jake Erfourth had another idea.

The junior used his arm, bat and glove to help hand Port a season-ending, 5-2 loss in a regional semifinal game July 10 at Rennicke Field in Mequon.

Besides tossing a five-hitter for a complete-game victory, Erfourth had an RBI single during a four-run rally in the third inning that wiped out a 1-0 Port lead. He also made a key defensive play by turning a sacrifice bunt into a force-out that ended a Port scoring threat in the second.

One year after having to share crown, CG-Belgium emerges as undisputed king

Last year, the Cedar Grove-Belgium  Rockets stumbled down the stretch and had to share their first Central Lakeshore Conference baseball title in decades.

This season, the Rockets took the next step, roaring to an outright CLC crown by winning seven of their last eight games and finishing with a 13-5 record, two games ahead of runner-up Oostburg (11-7).

Cedar Grove-Belgium capped the regular season Monday with a 2-0 road victory over Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah, completing a game that was suspended last week.

The Rockets took the lead in the third inning when Kyle Kirst’s RBI single scored Justin Keller.

In the seventh, Kirst doubled in Luke Kaat.

Kaat pitched the first four innings for the win, with Spencer Bares working the final three frames for a save. They combined to allow only four hits.

Josh Ruppel led the Rockets’ offense by going 2-for-3, and Kirst, Keller and Zach Feind were each 2-for-4.

Taylor Kaboord had three hits for Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah, which finished 7-11 in CLC play.

The win didn’t impact the title since Cedar Grove-Belgium had already clinched first place by sweeping a doubleheader against Ozaukee last week. However, the victory did punctuate the Rockets’ impressive late-season run, which included three wins by the 10-run rule in their last four games.

Cedar Grove-Belgium took a 13-8 overall record in a WIAA regional semifinal game Tuesday against Ozaukee (see related story).

Rockets coach Mike Ruppel said sweeping Random Lake in a doubleheader June 25 was the key for his team.

It’s not often that a fourth-place team in Wisconsin’s toughest high school soccer conference receives the lion’s share of postseason honors.

Consider the Grafton Black Hawks among the chosen few this spring.

Their girls’ squad had four players named to the All-North Shore Conference first team in a recent vote of coaches.

Representing Grafton are forward Carley Pfannerstill, midfielder Emma Fatla, defender Gabi Kuester and goalkeeper Alissa Viste, all seniors.

Despite taking fourth in the league with a 4-3 record, the Hawks had twice as many first-team honorees as any other team, including champion Cedarburg.

“To be in the middle of the standings and have that many players on the first team shows that we’ve gotten some respect,” Grafton coach Don Arnold said.
