Shutout games leave Grafton soccer team with mixed results in Green Bay

Up-and-down play left the Grafton girls’ soccer team with a decidedly mixed bag of results last Saturday.

Although the Black Hawks scored a shutout win, the victory was sandwiched between two losses at the Red Devil Invitational hosted by Green Bay East.

“We played well at times, but we had some problems, too,” Grafton coach Don Arnold said. “We could have come away with at least two wins.”

Grafton opened the tournament with a 1-0 loss to Seymour. Despite piling up a 14-2 edge in shots, the Hawks couldn’t find the net.

“It was one of those games where you walk away scratching your head,” Arnold said. “We put ourselves in position to score, but we weren’t aggressive enough in front of the net.”

Seymour got the winning goal midway through the second period.

The Hawks bounced back with a 7-0 win over Green Bay Southwest before capping the day with a 3-0 loss to Kimberly.

Against Southwest, Carley Pfannerstill and Jessie Bader each scored two goals, and Audrey Dickmann, Amanda Ritonia and Tess Safstrom had one apiece.

Alyssa Arnold and Amanda Lorge contributed two assists apiece, and Haley Orlowski, Pfannerstill and Alli Demerath each had one.

Pfannerstill, a senior forward, found the net twice in the first 12 minutes. The lead grew to 4-0 by halftime.

CG-B soccer team rules own field during undefeated run with 31-1 scoring edge

There’s nothing quite like the good fortune of an entire week of home soccer games. And there’s probably not much like playing seven games in six days.

Thus was Cedar Grove-Belgium’s blessing and burden last week.

The Rockets managed to go 6-0-1, outscoring their opponents by a combined 31-1.

Cedar Grove-Belgium capped the week by winning a home four-team tournament Saturday.

The Rockets defeated Oakfield, 5-0, and Lomira, 2-0, before losing to Living Word Lutheran in a shootout after the teams battled to a scoreless tie through regulation. Even so, Cedar Grove-Belgium won the tournament title on a tie-breaker.

“I’m proud of our defense and goalkeeper (Alyssa Schmitt),” said Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Elias Garza, whose team improved to 12-3-1.

“Suffice it to say, the girls spent an incredible amount of time on the pitch this past week, and it was exhausting for them on many levels. The girls hurting, sweating and competing, and I cannot thank them enough for their hard work, dedication and commitment.”

Against Oakfield, the Rockets built a 4-0 halftime lead. Halie Schieffer scored twice on assists from Ashli von Heimburg and Alex Buechler. Caitlin Hausner and A.J. Caldwell each had a goal, assisted by Buechler and Schieffer, respectively.

In the second half, Briana Weyker scored with an assist from Schieffer.

Against Lomira, Schieffer scored off a pass from von Heimburg, and Lomira scored an own goal.

The Rockets lost a penalty-kick shootout to Living Word Lutheran, 4-2.

Porous defense fails to keep softball team from rallying for 19-9 victory

Persistent offense allowed the Port Washington High School softball team to withstand a shaky defensive effort last Friday.

Despite committing 11 errors, the Pirates hammered their way past Campbellsport, 19-9, in a nonconference makeup game called after five innings.

Port’s fielding woes helped the Cougars score six runs in the second inning and hold an 8-4 lead after three frames.

However, the Pirates erupted for 10 runs in the top of the fourth and never trailed again. They scored in every inning, capped by a five-run outburst in the fifth.

Port finished with 15 hits and was aided by seven Campbellsport errors.
