A runner-up finish at No. 1 doubles gave the Port Washington High School boys’ tennis team a boost in the South Milwaukee Invitational last Saturday.

Seniors Evan Lopez and Luke Richard combined for a 2-1 match record in the eight-team tournament.

After winning their first match, 6-2, 6-1, against a Greenfield duo, Lopez and Richard outlasted a Whitnall team, winning a 7-5 tiebreaker.

The Port team then lost the title match, 6-3, 6-0, to a Muskego duo.

“They showed why they make such a great team,” Port coach Jenny Huettl said of Lopez and Richard.

The Pirates scored 16 points in the tournament.

In singles competition, Port got a third-place finish from Matt Kirmse at No. 4 and fourths from Jeff Ross at No. 2 and B.J. LaForest at No. 3.

Kirmse, a freshman, defeated a Greenfield player in the first round, then lost to a Muskego foe before defeating an Oak Creek opponent in straight sets.

Inexperience, injuries make things tough on Pirates in pair of defeats

The learning curve took a steep turn for the Port Washington High School girls’ soccer team last week.

Dogged by injuries and inexperience, the Pirates struggled in a pair of losses — most recently a 6-1, nonconference defeat at the hands of Oostburg on Friday.

Slow starts in each half hurt host Port, which trailed, 3-0, at the break.

“Oostburg is good, but we just don’t have a lot of depth,” said Port coach Mike Bultman, whose team was missing three starters.

“We had to use a lot of young people who are still trying to learn how to be varsity players.”

The Pirates were without starters Caity Tydrick, Brianna Krueger and Abby Becker due to injuries and a nonsoccer commitment. Krueger will miss the rest of the season due to a knee injury.

Oostburg built an early lead by scoring goals in the 10th, 13th and 17th minutes. The Lady Dutch ended any thoughts of a Port comeback by tacking on three goals in the first 10 minutes of the second period.
