Determined rally can’t save Port baseball team from extra-inning defeat

Overtime didn’t pay for the Port Washington High School baseball team last Friday.

Despite battling back from an early deficit and giving Cedarburg all it could handle, the Pirates were left with a 10-5 defeat in a 12-inning North Shore Conference tussle.

After Port scored a run in the bottom of  the seventh to force extra innings, the game remained deadlocked at 5-5 until the 12th. The Bulldogs then broke through with a decisive five-run rally.

“It was a tough loss, but I was really proud of the way our guys hung in there,” Port coach Nicholas Wycklendt said.

“There were some real positives for us even though it didn’t end up our way.”

The defeat was Port’s third in as many conference games last week, coming on the heels of losses to West Bend West and Whitefish Bay.

Cedarburg held a 4-0 lead after three innings, but the Pirates answered with a run in the fourth and three more in the fourth.

Softball team slips past Campbellsport in tough Division 2 regional opener


After scoring a 19-9 win over Campbellsport on May 4, the Port Washington softball team had good reason to be confident entering a rematch in a WIAA Division 2 regional quarterfinal game May 24.

Even so, Port coach Steve Schmidt expected a tougher challenge in the teams’ second meeting, and his forecast came true.

Hanging on in a seesaw game, the host Pirates emerged with a 6-5 win that advanced them to semifinal play.PORT WASHINGTON’S Shay Paradowski slid home in an attempt to beat the tag of the Campbellsport catcher during a WIAA Division 2 regional quarterfinal game.

“It was nice to pull out a win. The girls were excited,” Schmidt said after seeing his squad lose a 3-0 lead and overcome a 4-3 deficit.

“We started out strong, then gave back the lead, but did a good job of fighting back.”

Trailing, 4-3, the Pirates moved back in front for good with a three-run rally in the bottom of the fifth inning.

Consecutive singles by Ali Bichler, Stephanie Volesky and Maggie Schmit fueled the comeback, with Schmit’s RBI hit tying the game. A run-scoring single by Jill VandeBoom and a sacrifice fly by Taylor Miller gave Port a two-run cushion.

The Cougars got one run back in the sixth and threatened to score in the final two innings, but Bichler managed to escape further damage. She capped her complete-game pitching effort by stranding two runners in each frame.

Bichler gave up 12 hits, struck out two batters and walked two.

They barely beat one of their biggest rivals and instantly became their biggest fans.

Such was the case for the Cedar Grove-Belgium Rockets, who kept alive their hope of winning a share of the Central Lakeshore Conference girls’ soccer title by edging Ozaukee, 3-2, on May 24.

Cedar Grove-Belgium had to win to remain one game behind first-place Howards Grove in the CLC title chase. The Rockets came through but still needed Ozaukee to defeat Howards Grove in a makeup game Tuesday, May 29, to get a share of the crown.

Host Ozaukee tried to be the spoiler by grabbing a 1-0 lead on a goal by Mickey Burns, assisted by Katie Bares’ corner kick.

However, the Rockets pulled even when Ashli von Heimburg scored off a free kick by Alex Buechler.

After having an apparent goal by Natalie Clark called off on a delayed offsides call, the Warriors found the net again. Clark broke free down the right side and passed the ball to Lizzie Janke, whose goal put Ozaukee up, 2-1.

The second half belonged to the Rockets. After Ashley DeSmidt scored to tie the game in the 42nd minute, Halie Schieffer capped the comeback with the winning goal at 62 minutes.

“At halftime we spoke about the importance of playing well, staying healthy and competing at a high level,” Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Elias Garza said.
