Brewers finish off Pirates

The magic number is down to three after the Milwaukee Brewers finished their three-game sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates with a 4-3 victory Sunday.


The Brewers played long ball in the first six innings with Orlando Arcia launching his 15th homer of the season and Eric Thames clubbing two of his own to make it 4-0. In a patented bullpen game for the Brewers, their slate of pitchers did not allow a hit or walk through seven innings before Melky Cabrera and Cole Tucker made run-scoring plays in the eighth inning. Josh Hader secured his 35th save of the season while the division-leading Cardinals all but ended the Chicago Cubs season with a four-game sweep.  The Brewers are three behind the Cardinals for the NL Central crown and tied with the Nationals for the two wild-card spots.  

Packers remain undefeated against hapless Broncos

Denver came into Sunday's game at Lambeau Field 0-2 on the season and will fly back to the Mile High City still looking for their first win of the season. Green Bay's defense forced two key fumbles in the game. Bronco quarterback Joe Flacco fumbled at his own five yard line in the second quarter where it was recovered by the Pack's Rashan Gary. That led to an Aaron Jones touchdown run from seven yards out. The first Bronco drive of the third quarter ended after tight end Noah Fant coughed it up. Green Bay drove it 37 yards in four plays capped off by another Aaron Jones touchdown to make it 24-10. 

Denver was barely able to make a dent in that margin with the final score Green Bay 27, Denver 16. Aaron Rodgers was steady again, not trying to do too much. Rodgers finished 17-29 for 235 and a touchdown. The Pack's next game is at home Thursday night against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles lost at home Sunday to Detroit and are 1-2 on the season.

Sturgeon Bay boys soccer at Cedarburg Quad

Clippers soccer traveled down I-43 to Cedarburg for a four-team showcase this weekend.

Brewers beat Pirates 10-1 again

Milwaukee fans got the best kind of deja vu on Saturday as the Brew Crew topped Pittsburgh 10-1 for a second night. While history rhymes, it doesn't quite repeat. The Pirates got their lone run Saturday in the top of the first to take a short-lived lead. Second baseman Keston Hiura hit a two-run homer in the bottom half of the inning and Milwaukee never looked back. Three runs in the fourth inning, a run in the fifth, two more in the sixth and seventh innings and Milwaukee coasted. 


St. Louis beat the Cubs 9-8 in another nail biter. Milwaukee is now three clear of the Cubs with just eight games to play for the final Wild Card spot in the National League. The Crew is one back of Washington. If they can leap frog the Nats this week, they will host the one-game Wild Card playoff matchup.

Wisconsin football dominates Michigan

The Badgers picked up in Big Ten play where they left off on the non-conference schedule. After outscoring their opponents 110-0 in the first two games, Wisconsin jumped out 28-0 over Michigan at halftime. Wisconsin controlled the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball. Michigan's offense was stale except for one big reception to receiver Ronnie Bell. Wisconsin was dynamic with running back Jonathan Taylor gaining over 200 yards on the ground. Taylor managed that even while dealing with cramping issues for much of the second quarter. Quarterback Jack Coan was an economical 13-16 through the air. Once the game was out of hand Michigan finally broke the 10 quarter-plus scoreless streak of the Badger defense. The final score was 35-14.

Gibraltar bangs out win on 105.1 The Viking

The Gibraltar Vikings captured their fourth win in a row Saturday afternoon in Green Bay, defeating NEW Lutheran/Oneida Nation 50-38. It was a game differing styles with the United using their power running game and the Vikings opening things up through the air. The game got off to an ominous start when the United turned a fumble recovery into a Dawson Grignon touchdown. The Vikings responded with three straight touchdowns thanks to the arm of Luke Steebs on the first score and a pair of Brandon Stillman runs. United’s Zach Luepke scored a pair of rushing touchdowns on either side of Steebs’ second touchdown pass to Alex Laughlin on the day to make it 22-14 at the break.  Steebs would find the end zone three more times for the Vikings in the second half, including twice through the air to Laughlin. Grignon reached the endzone another two times to cap the scoring for the United. Both teams struggled with turnovers with four a piece, but the Vikings were able to turn theirs into points each time to provide the difference. The Vikings are back in action for their homecoming game on Friday night when they welcome Lena/St. Thomas Aquinas to Fish Creek. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. with 105.1 The Viking carrying the coverage beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Wisconsin Heights wears out Sturgeon Bay

Wisconsin Heights' offense was the real deal. They attacked through the air with precision passing from sideline to sideline. Quarterback Ozur Kepler hit on big passes to receivers Ace Ayers and Jack Fields with the Vanguards scoring on their first six possessions. Sturgeon Bay found its footing though and began to claw back. Anthony Jennerjohn found Jack Schmelzer for two scores in the first half. Then a pivotal sequence began. Jack Schmelzer was dragged down at the 10 yard line after a big pass play. Sturgeon Bay ended up turning the ball over on downs but managed a safety on defense. Following the kick from Wisconsin Heights, Drew Price got loose on a pass down the seam from the left slot and was tripped up by the ankles from behind. A touchdown saving tackle. An interception by Jennerjohn ended that drive. Even with a 65 yard Schmelzer reception on the first play of the third quarter Sturgeon Bay couldn't shrink the deficit below 12 points. 

Severe dehydration and cramping held several starters out and Kepler and Company went back to work. The Vanguards scored at will against freshman and sophomore backups to make the final score 74-38. Sturgeon Bay has Homecoming next week against Algoma.

Southern Door soars in homecoming victory on 102.1 MORE FM

The Southern Door Eagles got its homecoming crowd into the football game early as they topped the Oconto Blue Devils 43-20 on 102.1 MORE FM.


The Eagles got out to a 15-6 lead in the first quarter behind a 25-yard touchdown by Nick Baudhuin and a one-yard sneak for a score by Alex Daoust. After scoring with his legs in the first quarter, Daoust used his arm to extend the lead before halftime, finding Marcus Marchant for the 10-yard strike to make it 22-6. The Blue Devils would get it to within two points in the second half, thanks to a kickoff return for a touchdown by Troy  Wenzel and a touchdown pass from Caleb Moe to Luke Krueger in the third quarter's opening minutes. Daoust would answer with his arm as he found Marchant again for a 10-yard pass. Baudhuin would register two more touchdowns in the fourth quarter to put the game out of reach. The defense also made multiple big plays during the game, including three of the five interceptions caught by Tyler  Kroll.

Evenson's amazing second half leads Sevastopol to victory

A thick fog couldn't stop Spencer Evenson from taking over in the second half and leading Sevastopol to a 46-34 victory over Wausaukee on Friday night. The game was broadcasted on 104.1 WRLU and It was hard for fans and broadcasters to see much of what happened on Friday night as a thick fog rolled onto the Sevastopol football field about a half-hour before the game and stayed the whole way. 


It didn't seem to affect the play on the field all that much and certainly didn't hurt Spencer Evenson. He had touchdown runs of 72 and 12 yards as well as an 85-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, all in the second half. He broke several tackles on the 72-yard run. They needed it since the Pioneers trailed 14-8 at the half after Wausaukee scored a touchdown with 5 seconds left in the second quarter.


On the first play from scrimmage in the second half, Chase Mathis ran for a touchdown from 65 yards out for the Rangers. That was one of his several big runs in the game although he would later suffer a left leg injury.


Sevastopol started off the scoring with an 8-yard touchdown pass from Triston Beauchamp to Logan Beyer in the first quarter. Beyer would also have a 66-yard reception later in the game.


It was a wild back-and-forth second half with Cesar Sandoval clinching the game with under a minute left with an interception, the first of his career. Evenson ended up with 19 carries for 230 yards plus the kickoff return touchdown. He also made several tackles and pass breakups on Wausaukee star receiver Brandon Shigouri.


It was the first win of the season for the Pioneers and they are now 1-4 overall. Sevastopol will take on Gillett next Friday on the road. That game will be heard on 104.1 WRLU and streamed at with the pregame show beginning at 6:30 PM and kickoff at 7 PM.


Cross-country recap: Luxemburg-Casco excels in wet conditions

Cross country courses across northeast Wisconsin resembled steeplechase races and it was no exception in Valders where Luxemburg-Casco, Sevastopol, and Sturgeon Bay competed Thursday.


The Spartans were undeterred though with the boys finishing in third and the girls in second at the Bob Burzynski Invitational. Spencer Thiry (12th, 19:00) and Alyssa Delebreau (6th, 22:51) helped pace the Spartans to their squad's respective top three finishes.


The top local finisher was Sevastopol's Olivia Stenzel, who finished 2nd in the hilly 5K course on the girls' side in 21:20.

Brewers lose game but no Wild Card ground

The Milwaukee Brewers' 2-1 loss to the San Diego Padres could have been a lot of worse as the season continues to close.


Only two run-scoring hits took place during the entire game: a two-run shot in the third inning by the Padres' Seth Meijas-Bream and a solo home run by Keston Hiura in the sixth inning. Dinelson Lamet struck out 14 Brewers hitters, but other than that Milwaukee starter Adrian Houser nearly matched the Padres' right-hander.


While the Brewers slipped in the NL Central race because of a Cardinals win earlier in the day, the Cubs offense fell silent again as they lost their game. The Brewers remain tied for the second wild-card spot and 1.5 games behind the Washington Nationals.
