Vikings can't catch Bobcats on 105.1 The Viking

The Florence Bobcats scored in all three phases of the game to open a gap the Gibraltar Vikings could not close in a 54-6 loss heard on 105.1 The Viking Friday night.

 

Kaden Schuls scored less than 15 seconds into the game on a kickoff return for a touchdown and was quickly followed up by a touchdown run by William Liebergen. On the next drive, a screen pass from quarterback Luke Steebs went awry and ended up in the arms of Toby Wheeler who took it in for the touchdown. Steebs came back strong on the very next drive, scoring on a  six yard scamper to make it 22-6.  Wheeler would be a part of three more touchdown drives to lead the Bobcats to a 46-6 advantage at the break. With the running clock on, a 90 yard run by Schuls was the only points scored in the second half.

 

The Vikings will have a quick turnaround when the host Gillett at home on Thursday for a 7 p.m. kickoff. Tim Kowols and Jay Kita will have the call on 105.1 The Viking.

Brewers start homestand strong

The Milwaukee Brewers defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-1 on Friday in game one of their three-game series. Starting pitcher Jordan Lyles threw 6 no-hit innings before being pulled and the Brewers bullpen held the Diamondbacks to only 2 hits the rest of the game. Milwaukee second baseman Keston Hiura and first baseman Eric Thames each had solo homeruns in the contest; Mike Moustakas added 2 RBI’s on a first-inning double and both Ryan Braun and Jordan Lyles had RBI singles. With the win, the Brewers improved their record to 66-62 on this season and sit 3.5 games back of the St. Louis Cardinals for the first-place lead in the NL Central and are 3 games back of the Chicago Cubs for the second wild-card spot. The Brewers and Diamondbacks will continue their series on Saturday; Chase Anderson (5-3) is slated to take the mound for the Brewcrew and he will face Arizona RHP Zac Gallen (2-3). First pitch is scheduled for 6:10 P.M.

Sevastopol drops opening night game to Suring on 104.1 WRLU

Sevastopol dropped their opening game of the season 40-22 in Suring on Saturday night. The game was aired live on 104.1 WRLU and streamed at DoorCountyDailyNews.com. The star of the game was Suring senior running back Logan Stuart. Suring consistently handed the ball off to Stuart and he made the most of it carrying the Eagles offense to a victory. 

 

The Eagles got the scoring going in the first quarter with a long touchdown drive on the opening possession. After the teams traded punts, Sevastopol tied the game with a touchdown of their own. The Pioneers Spencer Evenson then picked off a pass and brought it all the way to the Eagles five yard line. From there, Sevastopol took the lead on a fourth down touchdown pass to Logan Beyer. Suring would regain the lead before the half and led at intermission 20-14.

 

The Eagles would never surrender the lead in the second half. Suring scored a touchdown first in the second half which the Pioneers answered with a 63 yard touchdown pass from Jack de Young to Spencer Evenson. Sevastopol couldn't muster much offense the rest of the game and Suring put the game away with two more touchdowns in the second half. 

 

Sevastopol will play their home opener on Thursday night against Algoma. The game will be broadcast live on 104.1 WRLU and streamed at DoorCountyDailyNews.com. Pregame show begins at 6:30 PM and kickoff at 7. 

 




Eagles drop home opener on 102.1 FM

Bulldogs crush Spartans 35-7 on WBDK

The Luxemburg-Casco Spartans could not overcome early mistakes and fell to the New London Bulldogs 35-7 in a non-conference football opener Friday night. 

 

The Bulldogs jumped out to a quick 7-0 lead by blocking a Spartans punt and recovering it in the end zone only two minutes into the game.  New London’s Briley Johnson, who recovered the blocked punt, then caught a 22-yard pass from quarterback Tucker Kohl late in the first quarter and the Bulldogs had the Spartans down 14-0. 

 

The Bulldogs scored twice more before the half, including a backbreaking three-yard scoring run by Sean Cortright with only a half-minute left in the half to take a commanding 28-0 lead into intermission. 

 

The Spartans could not muster a comeback in the second half as New London cruised to the victory with a continuous clock late in the third quarter after scoring on a 1-yard pass from Kohl to Chase Nelson.  Luxemburg-Casco did finally score on a 21-yard run by quarterback Matt Cravilion late in the fourth quarter. 

 

The Spartans (0-1) will try to bounce back next week as they travel to Appleton to take on the Fox Valley Lutheran Foxes in the North Eastern Conference opener.  The game will be broadcast on WBDK 96.7 FM and streamed on DoorCountyDailyNews.com  starting at 6:30 pm with the pregame show and kick-off set for 7 pm.

Gibraltar heads back to Florence on 105.1 The Viking

The Gibraltar Vikings football team hopes they are able to duplicate the success their basketball team had in Florence earlier this year when they play the Bobcats this evening on 105.1 The Viking. It was February when Gibraltar kicked off their two-day road trip on their way to a sectional berth with a 70-41 win over Florence. The leading scorer in that game, Luke Steebs, will take over for the former MONLPC offensive player of the year Trevor Reinhardt at quarterback for the season opener. New Gibraltar head coach Mike Peck says Steebs has committed himself to being great this season.

Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m. with Tim Kowols and Dylon Klubertanz on the call beginning at 6:30 p.m. with the pre-game show. You will be able to find more about this game, including the full interview with Coach Peck and reaction after the game at DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com.




Southern Door seeks revenge against Winneconne on 102.1 WRKU

The Southern Door Eagles football team hopes to erase the memory of last year's game when they host Winneconne in Brussels Friday night on 102.1 WRKU. The Wolves jumped all over the Eagles in last year's game in Winneconne, scoring 28 points in the first quarter en route to a 37-6 loss for Southern Door. It will be up to Nick Baudhuin, Evan Wheaton and Brodie Overbeck to try to slow down Winneconne's offensive attack led by all-state honorable mention quarterback Harrison Roubidoux.

 

Brett Kinnard and Tyler Dantoin will have the call on 102.1 WRKU with the pregame show beginning at 6:30 p.m. followed by kickoff at 7 p.m.

Packers nipped by Raiders

Much like the field it played on, the Green Bay Packers came up just short in its 22-21 loss to the Oakland Raiders Thursday night in Winnipeg.

 

Issues with the turf usually used for Canadian Football League games, which takes place on a wider and longer field and different placement for goalposts, forced almost all potential starters on both teams to sit out due to possible injury concerns. Battling on an 80 yard field, quarterback Tim Boyle started in place of Aaron Rodgers and led the Packers to three first half touchdown drives.  Two of those scores came from 20-plus yard passes to Trevor Davis and Jake Kumerow respectively. The Packers would not score again after taking a 21-10 into the half.  The Raiders scored a touchdown and a pair of field goals in the second half, with the game-winning kick occurring with just under three minutes in the game.

 

The Packers will wrap up the exhibition schedule at home next Thursday against the Kansas City Chiefs.




Sevastopol begins title defense on 104.1 WRLU

SBHS football transition going well

After having to transfer to 8-man football due to low turnout and player safety concerns, the Sturgeon Bay High School football team is seeing positive results. The team has had a few more members, including a female player, join the squad since the switch and the roster is now at over 20 players. Head Coach Jim Adams says the recent scrimmage at Sevastopol has helped him and the team understand the differences between 8-man and 11-man football.

 

 

Adams adds that the team is working on the fundamentals and worrying about improving themselves leading up to the week of their first game at Oakfield on September 6th. The full Sturgeon Bay High School football schedule will be released on a later date.




Kewaunee tennis back in action Thursday

Kewaunee tennis hopes to make it two in a row this week when they host Waupun Thursday.

 

The Storm surprised a bigger Ripon team Tuesday according to the Tigers' local paper, taking four of the meet's seven matches. It was thanks to their singles play that won all four of its matches. 

 

First swings take place at 4 p.m.

Sturgeon Bay hits the links Thursday

The Sturgeon Bay girls golf team heads to Shawano for its second meet in three days on Thursday.

 

The Clippers will be joined by Oconto when they tee off at Shawano Lake Golf Course beginning at 10 a.m. They faced the Blue Devils earlier this week when they also hosted Bonduel, West De Pere, and Xavier at Cherry Hills Golf Course on Tuesday.

L-C spends weeks with tune-ups

Luxemburg-Casco's football and golf teams will play for keeps on Friday, but that does not mean the school's other teams are not keeping busy.

 

The Spartans volleyball team will head to Kimberly Satur to face the host Papermakers, Little Chute, and Notre Dame De La Baie Academy in a series of scrimmages. The boys soccer team will hit the pitch as well on Saturday to scrimmage against Algoma.

 

A previously scheduled scrimmage for the Spartans JV football team against Green Bay East has been canceled.

Brewers jump on Wainwright, Cards

The game did not go the full nine innings, but the Milwaukee Brewers' 5-3 win over the St. Louis Cardinals was all but decided from the get-go.

 

Keston Hiura's RBI single and Mike Moustakas' three-run homer against Adam Wainwright gave the Brewers a 4-0 lead before the Cardinals even had a chance to grab a bat. Hiura came up big again in the fourth inning with a RBI double to drive in Christian Yelich. The Cardinals would chip away at the lead with two runs in the fifth inning and a single tally in the sixth. The game went into a rain delay before the bottom of the eighth and was made official a while later.

 

The Brewers head back to Miller Park to play a weekend set against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

 

 

Kewaunee Storm face stern test in opener

Kewaunee rattled off 11 straight wins to open 2018 and, this year, they return a bevy of skill players including running back Owen Kudick and QB Ryan Carmichael. Coach Randy Charles is in a pretty good position but nerves exist before every season opener. The Storm open up at home against Kiel :: KEEL::, a 2018 playoff team that returns a lot out of the powerful Eastern Wisconsin Conference. Kiel's defensive ends are the strength of the unit going up against an untested Kewaunee offensive line. That matchup is Charles' greatest area of concern:

 


Kiel favors the run offensively. Combining a clock-eating rushing offense with a great defense could threaten to limit the opportunities for Carmichael and Kudick to work their magic. Kewaunee is a playoff-tested program with a rich tradition. Pedigree says they'll be ready. The top-notch non-conference matchup kicks off Friday night.

Southern Door considers trapshooting team

The Southern Door School District is moving forward with the creation of a school-sponsored trapshooting team.  That comes after student demand for a sanctioned team that would be sponsored and advised by the Gardner Rifle Club.  Some Southern Door students were already club members.    Superintendent Patricia Vickman says a trap shooting team would sport the school's mascot and colors against teams from other Wisconsin Schools.

 

 

The trapshooting team would be open to boys and girls from the middle and high schools. Team members or the Gardner Rifle Club would be responsible for providing firearms for the competition.  Sturgeon Bay, Denmark, Luxemburg Casco, and Washington Island are mong the existing school trap shooting teams in our area.

Brewers fall further out of the playoffs

The worst-case scenario happened for the Brewers on Tuesday night. They themselves lost to the Cardinals 9-4 in St. Louis while the Cubs defeated the Giants 5-3. Milwaukee is now four games behind the Cardinals in the National League Central Division and 3.5 games behind the Cubs for the second Wild Card spot.

 

The bullpen doomed the Brewers on Tuesday night. Jeremy Jeffress allowed 3 earned runs while not recording an out and Matt Albers served up four runs in just 2/3 of an inning. Milwaukee actually took the lead in the top of the sixth inning. Eric Thames and Orlando Arcia each had an RBI to give the Brewers a 2-1 lead. Jeffress, however, gave the lead right back in the bottom of the inning. The Brewers would add two more runs in the eighth with a Hernan Perez RBI single and Arica sac fly. 

 

The Brewers will try to salvage the final game of the series in St. Louis tonight, first pitch at 6:45. 

Algoma football hosts Oneida Nation Friday

Algoma Head Coach Wade Vandervest was mostly pleased with his team's scrimmage performance last week. There are still some kinks to work out but Algoma is taking to eight-man football like a wolf to the forest. Algoma held a distinct size advantage at the line of scrimmage against the other three teams present last week which was the program's expectation. That interior size will be tested in Week One against Oneida. The Thunderhawks pound away on the ground with double tight end sets according to Vandervest:

 


Algoma hopes for strong fan turnout as they begin the eight-man era Friday night. Oneida finished 1-7 last year in the MONLPC- 8 Conference. Their only win was a forfeit victory.

Brewers nearly no-hit

A Yasmani Grandal ground-rule double with two outs in the eighth inning was the only thing that separated the Milwaukee Brewers from getting just shutout by the St. Louis Cardinals to getting no-hit by them.

 

The pitcher's duel between Zach Davies and Dakota Hudson left the score knotted at zero until the fifth inning when the Cardinals pushed past two runs thanks to a RBI groundout by Kolten Wong and a run-scoring single by Dexter Fowler. Paul DeJong extended the lead with a home run in the sixth. Giovanny Gallegos was on the mound when Grandal spoiled the no-hit bid, but Andrew Miller nailed down the save in the ninth. 

 

The Cardinals and Brewers meet again Busch Stadium Tuesday night at 6:45 p.m.
