CG-Belgium loses battle of boards

Ozaukee Press staff

A 39-25 rebounding disparity was too much for the Cedar Grove-Belgium High School boys’ basketball team to overcome last Friday at Reedsville.

The Panthers used second-chance points to key a 67-59 Big East Conference win.

“We gave up way to many offensive rebounds,” coach Josh Ketterhagen said.

Guard Jeffrey Emperley hit a big three-pointer late in the game, but Ketterhagen said his team didn’t make enough shots in the game’s last couple of minutes.

Forward Ethan Wonser scored 19 points and six rebounds, and Emperley had 13 points and five assists. Ketterhagen said Wonser continues to get better and Emperley is doing some things the team needs him to do. Max Ford added 10 points.

But Matthew Voskuil was limited by a calf injury, and Michael Navis got into foul trouble.

While the Panthers only made 13 of 28 free throws, the Rockets didn’t take advantage, making seven of 15.

Braiden Dvorachek led four Panthers in double figures with 18 points.

The Rockets, (2-5 in the Big East, 5-5 overall) played at non-conference foe Kewaskum on Tuesday, host Howards Grove on Thursday and play at Kohler on Tuesday, Jan. 15.

The Lady Rockets lost a low-scoring affair, 37-31, last Saturday at conference leader Howards Grove.

The Rockets (4-4 in the Big East and 5-5 overall) played at Ozaukee Tuesday, host Kohler on Friday and play at Port Washington on Jan. 15.
