Hockey team battles but handed first defeat

 

The Grafton/Port Washington hockey team stayed right with Homestead for two periods at the Ozaukee Ice Center last Saturday.

But favored Homestead pulled away down the stretch for a 7-2 win that handed the Ice Hawks their first loss of the season.

The Hawks, a co-op team that also includes players from Milwaukee Lutheran, slipped to 5-1-1 heading into a another tough North Shore Conference game

Thursday, Dec. 23, against Cedarburg.

“It wasn’t a bad loss. We played well,” Hawks coach Tony Rieck said of Saturday’s contest.

Grafton/Port trailed by only 3-2 entering the final period.

“We played pretty well the first two periods,” Rieck said. “Homestead had some good scoring opportunities and capitalized on them.”

Senior Travis Sette and sophomore Tim Grams each scored a goal for the Hawks. Sette and Adam Schoenfeld were credited with assists.
Junior goalie Chase Hollander made 36 saves.

Grafton/Port will face Cedarburg at 7 p.m. at the Ozaukee Ice Center. The Hawks will then participate in a three-game tournament Dec. 27 to 29 in Baldwin.

“We’re going to keep battling. We’ve gotten off to a great start this year,” Rieck said.

“We’ve got to start building from where we’ve come. We can’t rest on our laurels. I’ve got a lot of kids showing up prepared to play.”

Schoenfeld and Sette each scored once and had two assists. Zach Wilson and Scott Benson added a goal apiece.
Wilson, Scott Benson, Joe Benson and Steve Wick each had an assist.

Hollander made 32 saves.

“When we play people our caliber or a little bit better, we’re doing well,” Rieck said.

“Last year we were losing those games. This year we’re winning them.”

Cedar Grove-Belgium’s wrestling team racked up three decisive wins at a multi-dual tournament in Oakfield on Monday.

The Rockets overpowered Hustisford, 60-6; Dodgeland, 48-24; and Oakfield, 60-12.

Six Rockets went undefeated — seniors Tyler Garcia (171 pounds) and Zach Peiffer (135), juniors Hunter Buechler (189), Matt Mueller (285) and Zach Schulz (135) and freshman Nick Wieberdink (103).

“It’s a nice little tournament. The schools are usually right at our ability, right at our size,” Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Trevor Peterson said.

“Some of my younger kids got matches. It was nice to have them get some wins at the varsity level.”

Last Saturday, the Rockets finished fifth at the 12-team Kewaunee Invitational despite using only seven wrestlers. Peterson kept some wrestlers out so they could participate in a junior-varsity tournament this week.

After the second round, Cedar Grove-Belgium had already scored more points than they did in last year’s tournament. The Rockets finished the day with 125 points.

Two Rivers won the team title with 209.5 points.

Buechler received the award for needing the least cumulative time to win a title. After receiving a bye, he pinned Tom Mueller of Manitowoc Roncalli (in 1 minute, 34 seconds), Chris Smits of West De Pere

(1:27) and Cory Bonde of Kiel (1:16) in the title match.

Also placing first for the Rockets were Garcia (160) and Mueller (285).

Garcia received a bye, pinned Bobby Geiger of Two Rivers (2:23) and Chris Polanco of Seymour (4:37) and defeated Brillion’s Ryan Geiger, 10-0.

Mueller pinned Kiel’s Matt Halverson (2:53), edged John Verhagen of Gillett/Suring, 9-8; and defeated Bo Skornicka of Two Rivers, 11-3.

Peterson was also impressed with freshman Devon Villareal, who placed third  at 112, and Wieberdink, who took fourth at 103.

Warriors take 5th at invitational

The Ozaukee wrestling squad rebounded from a tough conference loss last week to place fifth at the 16-team Willard Schmidt Scramble in Green Bay on Saturday.

The Warriors scored 246.5 points. Stevens Point won the title with 328 points.

Vince Cardarelle led Ozaukee by winning the 152-pound title with a 5-0 record. The senior won twice on major decisions and scored a pin and technical fall before defeating Stevens Point’s Ethan Wroblewski, 4-1, in the final.

Cardarelle improved his season record to 14-4.

Ozaukee’s other top finishes included a second by Brady Watry (135), thirds by Cole Large (103) and Ethan Brouillette (130), a fourth by Tax Gottsacker (112) and fifths by Ian Hughes (125) and Alex Thill (140).

Watry (15-3) received a bye and won three matches by pin before losing to Lakeside Lutheran’s Connor Fussner, 15-3, in the final.

Large won twice before losing twice, including a 6-0 loss to Tyler Scharschmidt of Lomira in his final match.

Brouillette posted a 4-1 record. After winning his first three matches, he lost, 17-12, to Eau Claire Memorial’s William   Ruiz-Santos in the semifinals but bounced back to blank Lomira’s Garrett Keller, 11-0, in the third-place final.

Oostburg 36, Ozaukee 34

The Warriors had a seven-point lead entering the final two matches but couldn’t hang on in a showdown against the defending Central Lakeshore Conference champion Dec. 16.

Host Oostburg won both matches and scored nine points to pull out the victory.

“It was a hard loss. It was painful,” Ozaukee coach Luke Gundrum said. “Oostburg is pretty balanced.”

The meet included two overtime matches, with each team winning one. Ozaukee’s Cole Large (103) defeated Alex Korthals, 5-4, in double overtime, and the Warriors’ Logan Smith was upset, 6-4, by  Dylan Jentink in overtime.

“The highlight of the night was Alex Thill,” Gundrum said.

At 140 pounds, Thill outlasted Zach Rodgers, 11-8, to give the Warriors an unexpected victory.

“The thing is not necessarily that we wrestled that poorly. It was one or two matches that didn’t go our way,” Gundrum said.

Ozaukee’s next meet will be the Mid-States Classic in Oshkosh on Dec. 28 and 29. Gundrum said he hopes his team will finish in the top 10 of a field that includes more than 40 squads.
CG-Belgium 49, Elkhart Lake 24

The Rockets made their Parents Night meet a success by scoring an easy Central Lakeshore Conference win Dec. 16.

Schulz (125) and Buechler (189) won by pin to lead Cedar Grove-Belgium. The Rockets also got a 16-3 major decision from Garcia (160) and four Elkhart Lake forfeits.
Cedar Grove-Belgium will next wrestle in the Mid-States Classic on Dec. 28 and 29.

Workmanlike rally gives Pirate girls a victory to be proud of in league opener


This fourth-quarter comeback thing is becoming a habit for the Port Washington girls’ basketball team.

A winning habit.

For the third time this season, the Pirates rallied in the closing minutes to pull out a 47-42 victory last Friday.

And this time, the heroics came in a North Shore Conference opener against a Germantown team that couldn’t match Port’s execution and grit down the stretch.

Trailing, 35-31, after three quarters, the Pirates fought back to go ahead, 38-36, with less than five minutes left. After Germantown pulled even with a basket, Port responded with another run.

Mikayla Hilton made the first of two free throws to give the Pirates a 44-41 lead with 31 seconds left and missed the second attempt. During a scuffle for the rebound, the ball was deflected out to teammate Kayla
McIlree, who drained a three-pointer to make it 47-41 — and seal the outcome.

Although Port coach Brian Johnson might have preferred instead for his team to hold the ball, run down the clock and draw a foul, he wasn’t about to complain.

“This is a group of girls that plays with a lot of heart and determination,” he said after watching his team improve to 4-1 overall.

“They make mistakes and have a lot of things to improve on, but they never stop playing hard. After the first quarter, they started playing good defense and showing patience on the offensive end.”

Things didn’t looked encouraging for the Pirates early. Out of sync defensively, they fell behind, 20-9, after one quarter.

Lexi Keefe scored eight of her team-high 11 points during Germantown’s early surge.

But Port got its act together in the second period and used a 14-4 run to pull within 24-23 by halftime. Five Pirates scored during the rally, led by Cassie Klapoetke with four points.

Although the Pirates pulled even early in the third quarter, they never held the lead until a Hilton layup made it 38-36 with 4:38 left.

Hilton and McIlree made huge plays in the final minute, but much of the credit for Port’s strong second half goes to guard Caity Tydrick. Besides directing her team’s offense, the junior scored a game-high 12 points that included a 6-for-6 effort at the free-throw line.

“This was a total team win,” Johnson said. “We had some turnovers, but for the most part we took very good care of the ball against Germantown’s defensive pressure.

“We learned some things after losing to Menomonee Falls (earlier in the week). If we don’t have that game to prepare, we don’t win this one.”

With the victory, Port matched its win total of last season, when it finished 4-20.

The Pirates played Nicolet on Tuesday and will continue their NSC schedule with a 7:30 p.m. game at Whitefish Bay on Friday.  

Menomonee Falls 44, Port Washington 41

A turnover-filled fourth quarter cost the Pirates a nonconference win in their home opener Dec. 7.

Port held a 33-29 lead after three periods but was outscored by seven points the rest of the way.

Mikayla Robertson and Alex Poole carried most of the offensive load for the Indians and finished with 13 and 11 points, respectively.

Nine players contributed to the Pirates’ balanced scoring attack, led by Hilton with eight points.

Tydrick had seven points, and Kelsey Steffen and Klapoetke added six apiece.
