Nonconference foe, wind no problem for CG-Belgium in easy homecoming victory

Blustery wind blew away most of the Cedar Grove-Belgium football team’s passing plans last Friday night.

But with the success the host Rockets had running the ball, few people probably noticed.

Piling up 343 rushing yards, Cedar Grove-Belgium pounded its way past Gibraltar for a 33-0 homecoming victory.

In addition to assuring the Rockets of a winning season, the outcome kept them on a major roll heading toward the WIAA playoffs.

“It was a great game for us,” said Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Chris Zablocki, whose team notched its fifth straight win after opening the season with two nonconference losses.

Port boys’ team cruises to first at home invitational; CG-Belgium 6th among girls

Things clicked for the Port Washington boys’ cross-country team in its first home meet of the season last week.

With senior Jason Marhal again leading the way, the Pirates cruised to top honors in the 33rd annual Port Washington Invitational at Tendick Park in Saukville.

Marhal placed second in the 5,000-meter race, and his team finished with 40 points, 10 fewer than runner-up West Bend West.

“I’m real happy with the way things turned out. The guys performed very well,” Port boys’ coach Mark Pasten said.

Marhal, who has been the Pirates’ top runner throughout the season, posted a time of 16 minutes, 19.69 seconds. He trailed only West’s Alec Miller (16:13.25).

“Jason ran a solid race,” Pasten said. “He was right there for the lead until the last 300 meters, when Alec Miller pulled away.”

Late defensive stop allows CG-Belgium to preserve title-clinching victory over Ozaukee in CLC slugfest

When the Cedar Grove-Belgium football team traveled to Fredonia to take on Ozaukee last Friday, both teams and their fans knew the game was likely to decide the Central Lakeshore Conference title.

Appropriately, the showdown went down to the wire.

When the final horn sounded, it was the visiting Rockets who claimed a 33-27 victory that assured them of least a share of the league crown.

Trailing by six points in the closing minutes, Ozaukee drove the length of the field and reached the Cedar Grove-Belgium 20-yard line.

However, the drive stalled there. The Warriors’ final shot at victory ended when quarterback Colton Susen’s fourth-down pass for tight end Steve Street was broken up in the end zone by defensive back Logan Peterson.

“It was a heck of a football game,” said Ozaukee coach Jim Lippe, whose team faced a 21-7 deficit in the second half before rallying to pull even in the final period.

“Our boys really played their hearts out. They left it all out on the field. It was a tough, hard-fought game.”

For Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Chris Zablocki, the win was even more rewarding. Not only did it assure the Rockets of a successful CLC title defense, it came on the road against a tough foe.

“Ozaukee is playing very well. They’re very well-coached and battled us all the way,” said Zablocki, whose team improved its league record to 3-0, one game ahead of Howards Grove (2-1) and 1-1/2 games in front of the Warriors (1-1).
