Running back also among local players chosen All-Region

Cedar Grove-Belgium running back Alex Giles is again among Wisconsin’s elite in high-school football.

The senior halfback, who rushed for 1,615 yards and 19 touchdowns this season, has been named to the Associated Press All-State second team.

Giles also caught 11 passes for 206 yards and two touchdowns, helping the Rockets win their second straight Cen-tral Lakeshore Con-ference title.

Giles, who is Cedar Grove-Belgium’s career rushing leader, received AP All-State first-team honors last year.

He and several other area players are members of this season’s East Central All-Region team announced by the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association.

Joining Giles on the all-region offensive unit are Cedar Grove-Belgium lineman Alex May, Ozaukee wide receiver Steve Street and Grafton tight end Beau Benzschawel.

May and Street, both seniors, were also named to the all-region defensive unit as a lineman and back, respectively. They are among six players chosen for the honor on both sides of the ball.

Hockey team stays on the attack but loses three games during round-robin weekend 

Despite outshooting their opponents, the Grafton/Port Washington Ice Hawks lost three games last weekend, as well as another hockey player for the season.

In a four-team, round-robin tournament the Hawks hosted at the Ozaukee Ice Center, they fell to Eau Claire North, 5-3, on Friday; to Viroqua, 11-3, on Saturday; and to Greendale, 12-1, on Sunday.

All that came even though Grafton/Port posted a cumulative shot advantage, 98-83.

The Hawks’ best chance to win was Friday when they took the ice with energy and aggressive defense.

Grafton/Port fell behind, 3-0, but rallied. Senior forward Tim Grams led the comeback with a hat trick, assisted by Nate Perez, Bryce Fisk and Bubba Holzer.

The Hawks trailed, 3-1, before blistering the net with 25 shots in the third period. Although they scored twice in the period, North matched that effort.

Duening-led Spartans use front-line strength to spoil CG-B boys’ opener

An athletic opponent with a strong inside game didn’t provide a favorable matchup for the Cedar Grove-Belgium boys’ basketball team in its season opener Nov. 15.

Powered by the front-line play of Andrew Duening, West Bend West rolled to a 72-44 nonconference win over the host Rockets.

Duening scored a game-high 30 points for the Spartans, who raced to a 20-7 lead after one quarter and continued to pull away until the final period.

“We’ve got a ways to go,” Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Jim Meinen said.

“West Bend is a very athletic and strong inside. We have an entirely new system, and it’s going to take us a little while to learn things.”

West took control quickly with the low-post work of Duening, a 6-foot-6 junior. The Spartans also got 12 points from forward Jacob Duening, Andrew’s twin brother.

“He is a very nice player with nice moves,” Meinen said of Andrew Duening. “We thought he would give us some trouble inside, and he did.

“One of our concerns coming into the season was our interior post presence. It’s something we have to work on.”

The Rockets, who are rebuilding after losing most their top players from last season to graduation, trailed, 38-18, at halftime.
