Volleyball: Area teams season comes to close

Sevastopol’s memorable Spring season ended with a 1-1 day at the sectional tournament and a chance to participate in the sectional championship. In the first match, Sevastopol swept Mayville, winning the first set 26-24. The next two sets were more lopsided with wins of 25-11 and 25-15. 

 

In the match to win sectionals, the Pioneers took St. Mary’s Springs to four sets. The first set went 27-25 in Springs’ favor, the next set would go Sevastopol’s way with a 25-18 win. In set three and set four it would be Springs on top with a 25-21 and 25-20 victory. The Pioneers finish the season with a 14-4 record and a runner-up finish at the sectional tournament. 

 

Algoma’s improbable run would fall short in the championship match. To begin sectionals, they beat Gresham Community in four sets. They took the first two sets 25-20 and 25-19 before Gresham got on the board with a 25-21 victory to stay alive. It would be all Algoma in set four as they rolled for a 25-6 win. 

 

In the title, Algoma would fall to Washburn 25-11, 25-15, and 25-6. Algoma would go from a struggling regular season to a mighty postseason run. The Wolves are recognized as sectional runner-ups.

 

 

Soccer: Luders ties school record in dominant win

The Sturgeon Bay boys soccer team cruised to double digits in a 12-0 victory over North Fond du Lac-Oakfield. Ben Luders tied the school record for goals in a single game with five. Carson Dvorak nearly did the same as he had four. Spencer Hubbard also had a productive day with two goals. Robert Alas also tallied a goal. Joe Wind had a great day in the net with a shutout. 

 

The win moves the Clippers winning streak to four. Sturgeon Bay is now 4-1 on the season. Their next matchup will be against Ashwaubenon on Saturday. The game is scheduled to start at 11:00 AM.

 

Cullen, Kurek top field in Green Bay

The Kewaunee cross country teams used strong pack running to capture both races hosted by Green Bay West Tuesday afternoon.

 

In the boys' race, Kewaunee's Cameron Cullen tackled the 5K course in 17:57, winning the race by over a minute over Green Bay West's Alexander Knutson. The Storm placed four in the top ten, capturing the race with 26 points while Green Bay West scored 39 points and Green Bay East 56 points. Gibraltar, Sturgeon  Bay, and Gibraltar did not have enough runners to score.

 

 

In the girls' division, Kewaunee won as a team by default with 15 points, but it was Sturgeon Bay's Julia Kurek winning the race with a 5K time of 22:52. That was about 90 seconds faster than the second-place finisher, Gibraltar's Betsy Lecy.

 

Many of these same teams will race against each other next Tuesday in Kewaunee.

Brewers stall out in rivalry loss

After a two run inning to take a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the second, the Brewers were unable to find their bats again, getting just three hits in a 3-2 loss to the Chicago Cubs. Luis Urias belted a two run home run in the bottom of the second that scored Manny Pina and that would be all the scoring for Milwaukee. 

 

The Brewers would retain the lead after giving up one run in the top of the fourth inning, but in the top of the eighth inning the Brewers would be taken over, giving up two more runs. Chicago would hold the 3-2 lead until the end and claim victory. Milwaukee is now 6-5 on the season and will finish out their series against the Cubs on Wednesday at 12:40 PM in Milwaukee.

Six is Brewers' magic number verse rival

A six-run sixth inning was the formula in the Milwaukee Brewers win over the Chicago Cubs on Monday night. Milwaukee trailed 1-0 after the top of the fourth inning, but the entire trajectory of the game would flip in the bottom of the sixth inning. Luis Urias would kick the door open with a three-RBI double that scored Lorenzo Cain, Billy McKinney, and Daniel Robertson. Luis Urias would come around to score the fourth run on a wild pitch. Jackie Bradley Jr. would hit a three-bagger that would send Avisail Garcia home and make the game 5-1 and to top off the scoring in the inning Keston Hiura would hit an RBI single that scored Jackie Bradley Jr. The Brewers would hold the 6-1 lead until the top of the ninth inning. The Cubs would score two runs but Josh Hader would close the game afterward, and Milwaukee would win 6-3.

Brewers rotation continues silent treatment, beat Cards

The Milwaukee Brewers' rotation is showing no signs of slowing down after they beat the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday afternoon.

 

The Brewers opened the game scoring seven unanswered runs in the first two frames, anchored by home runs by Avisail Garcia and Travis Shaw. The Cardinals would cut into the lead later on an RBI groundout in the bottom of the second and a run-scoring double in the sixth. Manny Pina put icing on the win with a two-run homer in the top of the ninth. 

 

Brett Anderson sparkled in his second outing of the year, giving up just one run on five hits in five innings. Over the last five starts, the Brewers rotation has an ERA of 0.32. They look to continue that string of success tonight at American Family Field when the Chicago Cubs come to town for a 6:40 p.m. first pitch. 

Bucks stifle Magic

The Milwaukee Bucks used 19 three-pointers to rout the Orlando Magic on the road 124-87.

 

Ten different players hit shots from behind the arc, including at least three from Pat Connaughton and Bobby Portis. Six different players reached double figures on the Giannis-free evening, including a team-high 21 points from Khris Middleton. The Bucks outscored the Magic by almost 20 points in the first and final frames of the game to put the game well out of reach. Mo Bamba scored 21 points for the Magic, who have won only two of its nine games since trading a handful of its stars at the trade deadline. The win broke a three-game skid for the Bucks, which have played the last five games without Giannis Antetokounmpo, who is out with a sore knee.

 

The Bucks are back in action on Wednesday when they play at the Minnesota Timberwolves before playing the next night against Atlanta.

Gamblers earn sweep

In a weekend series in Michigan playing against Team USA, the Gamblers scored five goals for their second straight game on Saturday. In the Saturday matchup, Green Bay did not need to rely on late game magic like they did on Friday. The Gamblers started fast, leading 3-1 after the first period with goals from Ryan Kirwan who now has 19 on the season as well as John Mittelstadt, and Kyler Grundy each getting one. Team USA would score a goal in the second period to bring the game to a 3-2 score at the second intermission. 

 

In the third period, Cam Thiesing would also score his 19th goal of the season. Mason Lohrei also tallied a goal and the Gamblers won 5-2. They return to the Resch Center on Wednesday and will be at home in their next four contests.

 

Bats hot in Brewers victory

In their second of a three-game series against their divisional opponent on Saturday, the Milwaukee Brewers moved to 4-4 on the season with a 9-5 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. In the opening half inning in St. Louis, Travis Shaw hit an RBI single that would score Christian Yelich for the game’s first run. Christian Yelich would score again in the top of the fifth, on an Avisail Garcia two-run homerun. The Brewers would then lead 3-0 until the bottom of the sixth when the Cardinals would put up two, tightening Milwaukee’s lead. 

 

Milwaukee would quickly answer in the top of the seventh with a five run inning. Avisail Garcia followed his fifth-inning home run with a seventh inning double which would score Jackie Bradley and Christian Yelich. Keston Hiura would have his first homer of the season in the top of the seventh, and Avisail Garcia and Omar Narvaez would each score on the blast. Milwaukee would carry a 8-2 lead until the top of the eighth. In the eighth inning, Avisail Garcia would draw a bases loaded walk, scoring Luis Urias to make it 9-2 Milwaukee out in front. The Cardinals would score three in the bottom of the eight inning and that would end the scoring. 

 

Milwaukee will play St. Louis in Busch Stadium at 1:15 PM on Sunday. 

 

Vikings' rally falls short against Oakfield on 105.1 The GOAT

Gibraltar came up just short Saturday afternoon in Kewaskum as they fell to Oakfield 36-32.

 

Quarterback Luke Steebs opened the scoring up with a 10-yard scamper to the endzone to give the Vikings the early lead. The Oaks scored 16 unanswered points thanks to the legs of Hunter Sabel and Jack Fox before Steebs found the endzone again from four yards out. Grant Bass capped off the scoring in the first half with a one-yard touchdown to give the Oaks a 24-12 lead at the break. 

 

The Oaks opened up the lead to 30-12 when Bass found wide receiver Mason Tapp for the 25-yard passing touchdown.  The Vikings returned volley almost immediately with Sam Lindenberg finding a seam and galloping his way to the endzone from 60 yards out. Later in the quarter, the Oaks matched that run and then some when Fox broke several tackles on a 3rd and 5 and scored from 70 yards out. Steebs would account for two touchdowns in the fourth quarter with one through the air and another on the ground to get the score to 36-32. An onside kick attempt scooted out of bounds to end the threat and the game for the Vikings as they fall to 0-2 on the truncated spring season.

 

The Vikings are back in action on Friday night when they host Sturgeon Bay at Sevastopol. 103.3 The Clipper and 105.1 The GOAT will carry the action beginning at 6:30 p.m. with the pregame show followed by kickoff at 7 p.m.

 

Late game heroics lift Gamblers

Two goals within forty seconds of each other in the final minute was the difference-maker in the Green Bay Gamblers 5-4 win over Team USA. Mason Lohrei scored the tying goal with fifty-five seconds left. The game-winner would be scored with just fifteen seconds to go by Victor Mancini. Damien Carfagna, Jake Schmaltz, and Alex Servagno also scored a goal. Jesse Tucker also became the organization’s all-time leader in career assists with eighty-five. The Gamblers will face off against Team USA on Saturday at 6:00 PM in Plymouth, MI.

Bucks drop third straight

Milwaukee returned home from their west-coast road trip on Friday, but couldn’t leave their recent struggles there. Friday’s loss to the Charlotte Hornets marked their third straight. Milwaukee was without their big three in Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jrue Holiday, and Khris Middleton in their 127-119 loss. After one quarter, Charlotte had a five-point advantage, up 32-27. They would extend the lead to eleven at the halftime break with the score 66-55 in favor of the Hornets. They would separate even further in the third quarter and go into the final quarter up 100-81. Milwaukee would inch closer in the fourth quarter, but not close enough as they would take the eight-point loss. 

 

Jordan Nwora would take advantage of the increased playing time, leading Bucks scorers with 24. Jeff Teague would score 19 and Brynn Forbes would also have 18 of his own. The Bucks are still in third place in the East standings and four games out of the top spot. Their record is 32-20 and they will head to Florida on Sunday to face the Orlando Magic. Tip-off is scheduled for 6:00 PM. 

 

Brewers facing Cardinals off rest day

The Milwaukee Brewers have been up and down through their first seven games this season, and coming off a day of rest will look to get their first win over their division rival, the St. Louis Cardinals. It will be the second of a three-game series and their second of four straight NL Central series.. The Brewers last outing was a Thursday loss to the Cards, 3-1. Milwaukee is still looking for consistency in their bats, especially after trading infielder Orlando Arcia. Projected to get his second start of the season will be Brewers pitcher Adrian Houser. The right-handed pitcher is 0-1 so far this season after losing his season debut against the Minnesota Twins. 

 

The Crew are 3-4 in the early going of the season. The first pitch for Saturday and Sunday is scheduled for 1:15 PM.

 

Sevastopol, Kewaunee sights for regional volleyball

Teams from the Packerland Conference are split into two groups that will play at two different locations on Saturday, as each team fights for a chance to extend their season. Sevastopol earned a top seed in their tournament with a 4-1 conference record. They will host a Southern Door team that is heating up at the right time. Sevastopol has won the previous two matchups against Southern Door. Gibraltar and Sturgeon Bay will also square off at 4:00 in the Sevastopol gymnasium. The winners of these two games will fight for the regional championship at 7:30 PM. 

 

In the other regional bracket at Kewaunee High School, Kewaunee will face Algoma at 10:00 AM for the second time in as many nights. Menominee Indian and Oneida Nation will also play each other at 1:00 PM. The championship of this regional will begin at 4:00 PM. Both of the regional tournaments are one-day tournaments.

 

Late field goal defeats Kewaunee

Though they didn’t end the game on top, Kewaunee came sprinting out of the gate in Friday’s matchup against Notre Dame Academy in Green Bay. The Storm took the opening play from scrimmage fifty-five yards on a touchdown pass from Mitchell Thompson to Alex Rohr. Just five plays later Anthony Jerabeck would pick off a Sam Lagowski pass and Kewaunee would take over in good field position. On a fourth and one, Jack Severin would find a crease on a dive and take it forty-one yards to the house. Within their first five offensive plays, the Storm would hold a 14-0 lead. With a chance to go up three scores, Kewaunee would have their lone turnover, when Notre Dame’s Keegan King would jump a slant to intercept a Mitchell Thompson pass. 

 

Notre Dame would eventually get on the board on a four yard TD run from Will Zellner, which would be the first of his three. Before the halftime whistle Zellner would find the endzone again and after a blocked PAT, Kewaunee would go into halftime up 14-13. Neither team would score in the third quarter. Zellner would score on a twenty-three yard TD run in the fourth quarter with over eight minutes to go. The score was set up by excellent field position after a Keegan King blocked a Kewaunee punt. After a failed two point try, Notre Dame would have their first lead, 20-19. 

 

The Storm would surge back the next possession, taking over five minutes off the clock. The drive would be capped off by Alex Rohr’s second touchdown reception of the evening with 3:09 left to go. The Storm would go up 20-19. They would not convert the two point conversion, which proved costly. Notre Dame would methodically move the ball down the field and with eleven seconds left Aiden Wolfram would connect on a thirty-nine yard field goal. Notre Dame would win the game 22-20 and Kewaunee’s record would drop to 2-1. 

 

 

Soccer: Clippers squeak past Appleton East

Sturgeon Bay soccer was able to take down an Appleton East squad 3-2 on Thursday. Ben Luders, Gavin Fernandez, and Spencer Hubbard each scored a goal. This marks three straight wins for the Clippers who are now 3-1. The Clips will face North Fon Du Lac on Tuesday. The game is scheduled to begin at 7:00 PM.

Brewers unable to help Burnes

Corbin Burnes had a dominant day on the mound for the Brewers on Thursday, but it didn’t earn him the victory against the St. Louis Cardinals. After the Brewers took a 1-0 lead in the top of the third, they would be unable to cross the plate again. In the third inning Keston Hiura scored on a St. Louis error. Burnes would go six innings on the bump and allow just one hit and no runs. After his exit, the Brewers gave up a run in the seventh and the game would be tied. St. Louis gave themselves a cushion with two runs in the bottom of the eighth on their way to a 3-1 victory. 

 

The Brewers get Friday off before playing St. Louis again on Saturday at 1:15 PM. The Brewers are now 3-4 this season.
