Until last weekend, it had been more than a month since the Grafton Black Hawks found themselves overpowered in a baseball game.

The streak ended Friday when Germantown pounded out 13 hits, including two homers, for a 9-1 win in North Shore Conference play.

Grafton, which hadn’t lost a game by more than two runs since an 11-0 setback at Whitefish Bay on May 31, grabbed a 1-0 lead in the first inning against first-place Germantown.

However, the host team responded with three runs in its half of the first and stretched the margin to 7-1 in the fourth. The four-run inning included a two-run homer by Louis Tuszynski and a solo shot by Denny Krause.

The Black Hawks’ run scored on a RBI single by Kevin Scholz, whose two-out hit followed back-to-back singles by Al Nennig and Beau Benzschawel.

Ryan Anderson pitched the first five innings for the win, and reliever Tom Andrus worked the final two frames. They combined to hold the Black Hawks to six hits.

“Germantown seems to have gotten it all together — hitting, pitching and defense,” Grafton coach Brian Durst said.


Germantown improved to 8-2 in NSC play and 12-7 overall. Grafton fell to 5-7 in the conference and 8-9 overall.

Momentum not enough to carry Grafton past physical Madison West

Coming off a resounding win the previous night, the Grafton Black Hawks appeared ready to soar again in the WIAA state girls’ tournament at Uihlein Soccer Park last Friday.

A spoiler named Madison West had other ideas.

Dodging a flurry of Grafton shots in the closing minutes, West hung on for a 1-0 win in a Division 1 semifinal game that could have easily gone the other way.

Although the Hawks generated more offensive chances, they couldn’t overcome a defensive miscue early in the second half.

In the 43rd minute, West midfielder Emma Guilfoil controlled a loose ball near the left side of the Grafton box and launched a shot to the far post. The ball eluded the leap of keeper Alissa Viste and found the net.

The score came on West’s only shot on goal in the game and was just enough to hand the Hawks a tearful season finale.

“It was just one of those things. We failed to clear a ball, and they got a well-placed shot,” Grafton coach Don Arnold said.

Local teams learn tough lessons in recent defeats, gain confidence

Port Washington’s baseball team has been on both sides of a few close calls in the past week, including a walk-off and an extra-inning thriller.

“We’re in every one of ‘em. That shows the fight,” said coach Nicholas Wycklendt. “I think we’ll have a very dangerous team if we keep hitting this way and playing defense like we have.”

On Monday, the Pirates couldn’t hang on to leads of 4-1 and 5-3 against North Shore Conference rival West Bend West and lost, 6-5, in eight innings.

The Spartans used two slow-moving ground balls past the pitcher’s mound before a two-out single to right field gave them the lead for good in the eighth.

Pirate Derek Haley pitched the first six innings before getting into a little trouble in the seventh.

At the plate, Nick Godersky had two hits and four RBIs. All but one player in the lineup got a hit.

The Pirates put one runner on in the seventh but couldn’t get him around.

“We hit the ball really well today. The hitting was really spread out tonight,” said Wycklendt.
