Homestead’s quick-strike scores take toll on Grafton football team that shows fight but can’t keep pace

Scoring points wasn’t a big problem for the Grafton football team when it tangled with the Homestead juggernaut last Friday night.

Maintaining control of the ball wasn’t either.

Giving up big plays was another matter.

Although the host Black Hawks enjoyed their most productive offensive show of the season, they had no answer for a quick-strike Homestead attack led by quarterback Jake Laihinen.

Laihinen completed 11 of 13 passes for 211 yards and five touchdowns as the Highlanders rolled to a 58-20 win in a North Shore Conference game.

“We knew Homestead has a very good team. Every time we made a mistake, they made us pay for it big time,” Grafton coach Ben Chossek said.

It takes overtime, but Ozaukee football team edges St. Catherine’s in battle with another imposing foe  

At the start of this season, a high-school sports website listed Ozaukee as having the toughest Division 6 football schedule in the state.

“Our first three games were as tough as they come,” Warriors coach Jim Lippe said, noting his team had to face St. Mary’s Springs, Burlington Catholic Central and Racine St. Catherine’s in its first three games.

Last Saturday, it took overtime, but Ozaukee rallied to score a 14-7 win over visiting St. Catherine’s. The victory improved the Warriors’ record to 2-1 in nonconference play.

“To come out of that schedule at 2-1 is really wonderful,” Lippe said. “It was a hard-fought win, and the boys deserve a lot of credit.”

Saturday’s game couldn’t have been much closer.

After the teams battled to a 7-7 deadlock through regulation, the Warriors got the final word when wide receiver Steve Street caught a 13-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Colton Susen in the extra period.

Ethan Brouillette kicked the extra point.

The Ozaukee defense then kept the Angels out of the end zone on their overtime possession. On St. Catherine’s final play, Street deflected a pass to preserve the victory.


Street had his best game of the season, finishing with six receptions for 83 yards.

“Steve Street had a really nice game, with some really good catches,” Lippe said.

Lippe also praised Brouillette for “a really strong game on both defense and offense.” The senior back led Ozaukee in rushing with 62 yards on 23 carries.

Logan Smith had 50 yards on 13 rushes.
