Packers QB/Red Zone Co-Host Battles Epilepsy


By Nick Freimuth




Did you know that 1 in 10 people will have a seizure in their lifetime or that 1 in 26 will be diagnosed with Epilepsy? Green Bay Packers Quarterback, Brett Hundley unfortunately knows these facts all too well, as his sister Paris lives with this unpredictable disease.

 

Tonight's preseason game against the LA Rams at Lambeau field won't be just another exhibition game for Brett Hundley. Brett will do what his sister cannot, fulfilling his dreams as a professional athlete, a dream she had to give up at a young age. Brett recently became an ambassador for Athletes Vs. Epilepsy, a nationwide program that promotes athletes of all ages and skill levels to participate in sport related activities, raising awareness and funds that support new therapies and research for people with epilepsy.

 

Hundley will be at Jim Olson Motors in Sturgeon Bay throughout the NFL season. Hundley will co-host for the second straight year at Jim Olson Ford Monday nights from 6:00 - 7:00 PM on 104.1 FM WRLU.

By Nick Freimuth




Boys and girls entering grades 4K through fifth this school year are invited to join a Semi-competitive flag football at the Brussels Town Park. Running Thursdays from September 14th through October 5th students will learn the basics of football through a combination of games and coaching. Kids will have fun while learning how to run, block, receive and play defense. All participants play in every game and each player will play various positions.

 

Each session will run between 5:30 and 7:00 PM. The cost to enroll your child is $40 for the first child and $30 for each additional child.

 

Each player will be put on a team (pending we have enough kids) that will be coached by an 8th grade boy and that 8th grader will be their teams quarterback.

By Nick Freimuth

Packers Prepping For Exhibition Finale


By Nick Freimuth




The Green Bay Packers will host the L.A. Rams Thursday at 6:00 PM to finish up the pre-season. Both teams enter the exhibition finale with a (2-1) record and have plans to rest the majority of their starters. Players like Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson, Clay Matthews and Nick Perry will likely not play Thursday.

 

Remarkably, this is the Rams will play at Lambeau Field during the preseason. The Packers hosted the Rams just once. It came back in 1994 when the teams faced off in Madison.  Thursday night marks the third preseason meeting between the teams in the last five years. The last two were played in St. Louis.

 

The Rams are playing in a new city and sporting new uniforms and color scheme this season. The yellow and blue has been replaced by white and blue. The new jerseys will be on display at Lambeau Field Thursday where tickets have already proved to be very easy to come by on the second hand market.

Gunnar Tebon Goal Leads Sturgeon Bay Soccer To (3-0)


By Nick Freimuth




Sturgeon Bay Soccer had an opportunity last weekend to play on the nicest artificial playing surface soccer field in Northeast Wisconsin. The Clippers shutout Rice Lake to move to (3-0) on the season with a 1-0 win Saturday.

 

Sturgeon Bay Coach Todd Maas said, "Rice Lake has been down to State a couple times in the past few years. Making this a quality opponent for us to play for one of our non conference games. I thought the guys played pretty well over all. We got the result we were looking for, but we need to clean a bunch of things up. Our turnover total for the game was horrendous. This is a major thing we need to fix. Can't give up the ball so easily. In our defensive 3rd we need to close quicker and harder and really push the offense to go where we want the to go. Our offense did good, creating a number of opportunities to put the ball away. Just need to convert a few more times. Or even put the ball on frame so we can catch some rebounds and second balls."

 

Sophomore Gunnar Tebon scored his second goal of the season for the Clippers. His game winner came off a beautiful Jaden Stevenson assist. Maas said, "Jaden played the ball through some traffic to get Gunner on the run. A couple misfortunes from two of Rice Lakes defenders and Gunner comes out on the back side with the ball at his feet. I like Gunners composure to get his head up and see where the charging goalie was coming from and nicely tucks the ball away near post."

 

The one-time state championship coach Todd Maas feels his team is heading in the right direction. "Over all though the guys played hard. It was good clean game, and a great day to play on some turf to get the boys more familiar with that playing surface. We have a ton of things to work on in practice and get these guys ready for the grind of the season. But I like the results of our first three games."

 

The Clippers next play at Algoma Thursday at 6:30 PM.

By Brett Kinnard




The Milwaukee Brewers beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 Sunday afternoon. Jimmy Nelson started on the bump for Milwaukee. He pitched nearly seven innings of two run ball against the best team in the NL, including a no-hitter into the sixth.


Milwaukee got off to a good start in the first couple innings. Travis Shaw drove in an RBI in the first to make it 1-0. Then Hernan Perez hit a solo shot in the bottom of the 3rd and the Brewers never looked back on this one. The Dodgers have not lost a series since June 5-7.


Milwaukee will now travel back home to start up a series against the Cardinals. The Brewers are now just two games back of the Cubs in the division.

Southern Door Comeback Falls Short In 17-14 Loss


By Nate Alberts


 


Wausau East had not won a game since 2014 entering Friday, but that streak came to an end in a 17-14 win over Southern Door.


Southern Door fell behind 3-0 early in the second quarter after both teams failed to score in the opening quarter. Caleb Gruzynski connected on a 22-yard field goal.


After a couple stalled drives, the Eagles fell down 10-0 with 18 seconds remaining in the first half when Jack Kane connected on a 57-yard pass to Caleb Moses. That would be the score in to the break and after three-quarters.


The Lumberjacks would score early in the fourth quarter when Kane ran it in from 1-yard out making the score 17-0.


Southern Door's comeback would start midway through the fourth on a Derik LeCaptain 3-yard run and then would make it quickly 17-14 when the Eagles defense got a much-needed stop then LeCaptain found the end zone again from 4-yards out with two minutes left.


Time management would be the difference the rest of the way as Southern Door was down to only one timeout with 1:40 left and the Lumberjacks were able to run out the clock.


The Eagles will return home next Friday to take on the Oconto Blue Devils.

A couple of our Defenders did not pick up a runner through our line, and he beat our keeper who came out to challenge 1 on 1."

 

Maas also said, "For us we have a few goals for the guys to strive for. One was possess the ball and get things moving. We did an ok job the first half, too many turnovers for our liking in what we were trying to accomplish. Second half I thought we did a lot better."

Algoma Claims First Conference Win Against Gibraltar/Sevastopol


By Baxter Colburn




The Algoma Wolves took care of business in their first conference match of the 2017 soccer season. Senior Dillion Dean of Algoma converted the game's first goal from the penalty spot in the 16th minute. Nine minutes later, sophomore Riley Reinhardt found a pocket of space to bend his right-footed shot into the far post from 20-yards out. Gibraltar/Sevastopol saw only one real scoring chance in the 42nd minute, but the shot from Kiegan Sargent sprayed just wide.

 

A minute before halftime saw tragedy strike against the Wolves. Senior forward Eric Arvizu crashed to the ground holding his knee and was forced to leave the game. Trainers first thought his MCL was torn, but no official word emerged following the match. Arvizu missed all last season with a similar injury in his right knee. Algoma carried a 2-0 led into the halftime break.

 

The second half saw a lot of back and forth play from each side. Both schools exchanged several shots on target, but neither succeed in finding the back of the net. Finally, in the 83rd minute, Gibraltar/Sevastopol capitalized on a loose ball in the box and Hayden Hoffman struck from close range. The match finished 2-1 in favor of Algoma.

 

"I'm glad we pulled the win out. We are replacing a lot from last year. We had some good moments and some bad moments" said Wolves coach Brian Dawson following the match.

 

Both schools return to the field this coming Monday. Algoma hosts Freedom at 4:30, while Gibraltar/Sevastopol welcome Manitowoc Lincoln at 6:30.

Packers Hope To Go (3-0) In Pre-Season After Saturday


By Nick Freimuth




The Green Bay Packers play just one AFC team in the preseason for only the second time (2013) since 2000. They will play the Broncos in Denver Saturday night at 8:00 PM CST. For comparison, there have been eight seasons since 2000 where Green Bay has played one NFC team in the preseason. And there have been four preseasons (2000, 2001, 2005, 2012) where the Packers have only played AFC teams during the exhibition season.

 

The first preseason game the Packers played in the city of Denver was not against the Broncos. It was a 35-31 loss to Washington on Sept. 10, 1946. The Packers are (9-2) all-time in preseason games played on August 26. (1961, 1973, 1978, 1989, 1994, 2000, 2002, 2005, 2010, 2011, 2016; only losses came in 1978 and 2005).

 

With wins over the Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins, the Packers began the preseason (2-0) for the second consecutive year.

Packers Prepping For Broncos


By Green Bay Packers




The Green Bay Packers finish the road part of the preseason schedule with a trip to Colorado to play the Denver Broncos Saturday night. It will be Green Bay's first preseason trip to Denver since 2008, when it won, 27-24. Prior to that, the teams had not played in the preseason since squaring off in four straight preseasons (1998-2001).

 

This will be the 10th preseason meeting between the Packers and Broncos, with Denver winning six of the previous nine matchups. The regular-season series between the two is even at 6-6-1.

 

In six of the past seven seasons, Green Bay has had a preseason matchup against an AFC West opponent. Since 2000, there have been 12 seasons in which the Packers have played a team from the AFC West in the preseason.

 

Kickoff is slated for 8 p.m. CDT at Sports Authority Field at Mile High on Saturday, Aug. 26.

Young Sturgeon Bay Soccer Team Starts Season With Big Win


By Nick Freimuth




The Sturgeon Bay Clippers are now two seasons removed from winning a state championship and are in a bit of a rebuilding mode. This year's varsity roster may be one of the youngest Coach Todd Maas has ever coached. The starting lineup is littered with underclassmen and Mass said, "Our numbers are small. We struggled to make a JV team this year. The boys need to play very consistent for us to get far.  Players we have are good quality. We have a young but talented crew. We'll just have to work that much harder to get results."

 

On Tuesday night, the Clippers opened the season with a 4-2 win over Wausau East. The Lumberjacks possessed the ball extremely well. Coach Maas said, "If we kept track of time of possession, I would estimate it to be 40% us and 60% them. But I thought our boys kept shape rather well, patience was key for timely tackles. Once we took over the ball, I thought our efficiency in our attacking third was better than it's been all week. We linked up a few times and got some very nice goals."

 

Sophomore Gunner Tebon scored an early goal, assisted by Jaden Stevenson. Stevenson assisted on the next goal as well to Eli Deitzel. He (Stevenson) then scored off a great header and a perfectly placed ball off a corner kick by sophomore Dylan Burk. Then Eli Deitzel smashed a ball off the near pipe and in to give the Clippers a two goal lead. Wausau East scored twice on penalty kicks.

Algoma lost a hard fought game at Sheboygan falls Tuesday 4-2. Algoma Coach Brian Dawson said, "Sheboygan Falls has gotten stronger this year. I like where we are though." Today Algoma hosts Gibraltar in a home opener of the Wolves brand new soccer field.

Brewers Rally Back In Win


By Brett Kinnard




The Milwaukee Brewers beat the San Fransisco Giants 4-3 on Tuesday night. Jimmy Nelson started for Milwaukee and went six innings strong only giving up three earned runs. The bullpen held them scoreless from that point out.

By Tim Kowols

Doubleheader marks Door County League Baseball regular season finale

Door County girl's high school swim team grows in numbers


By Connor Sannito




The Door County girl's high school swim team just went up from 12 swimmers of last season to this season's 20 swimmers. The team is the collective of girls from Sturgeon Bay, Sevastopol, and this year's new addition, Southern Door. The sharp increase in numbers is partly because the girls continue to keep making connections across the County's high schools. The team is closely knit; the mechanics of the small team resemble something closer to a family - a big family.

 



 

Swim meets are decided not only on talent but also based on a large roster. Last season they went undefeated in dual meets and in every individual event. However, a number of swimmers they had were lacking, so overall team achievement was difficult.


 

Now, the team has depth in numbers to make for a very successful swim season. They increased the amount of swim meets from 12 a year to 15 a year.


 

Dave Bubnik, the seven-year head coach, expects good things from his girls team this season. Bubnik is happy that girls come out to do such a taxing sport and able to stick around even after a practice of his:


 

Two 2 hour-long practices, one in the morning and one in the late afternoon: Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. And a two-hour long practice in the morning for Wednesday and Friday. The girl's high school swim team swim about 5000 yards per practice. Bubnik also is set on overtraining the girls for their events to maximize their times.


 



 

This year's captains are Jillie Jorns, a senior from Sevastopol, and Kaitlyn Schauske, a junior from Sevastopol.


 

The girl's high school swim team first home meet, at the Sturgeon Bay YMCA, is August 22nd.

Southern Door Football outlasts Winneconne 46-40 on 102.1 WRKU


By Tim Kowols




The Southern Door Eagles had to hold off a late Winneconne rally as they held off the Wolves 46-40 in Brussels on 102.1 WRKU Friday Night.  After letting the Wolves score first to make it 8-0, running back Derik LeCaptain scored touchdowns on consecutive possessions to give the Eagles a 14-8 lead. Quarterback Ben Heyroth would lead the Wolves for a trio of scores to give the Wolves a  28-19 lead into halftime. Second half adjustments made by the Eagles paid off instantly as LeCaptain and Andrew Montana found the end zone to give them a lead they would not give up. LeCaptain closed up the scoring for the Eagles, scoring his fourth and fifth touchdowns of the evening on well over 200 yards rushing to give them a 46-34 lead. Junior quarterback Kyle Daoust made the most of his starting debut, tossing three touchdowns and two interceptions. A late 63-yard touchdown pass from Heyroth made it interesting for the Wolves, but a dropped pass on fourth down with 1:40 remaining put the game on ice for the Eagles.

 

The Eagles are back in action next week on the road against Wausau East. Nate Alberts and Brett Kinnard will have the call with the pre-game show starting at 6:30 p.m. and kickoff at 7 p.m. on 102.1 WRKU.

Spartans roll to 34-14 win over Denmark on WBDK


By Paul Schmitt




The Luxemburg-Casco pulled away in the second half to defeat the Denmark Vikings 34-14 in a North Eastern Conference football opener Friday night in Luxemburg.

 

The Spartans capitalized on a Viking fumble on their first possession and took a 7-0 lead on a Nathan Coisman first of two touchdown runs.  The Spartans took a slim 14-7 lead into halftime as 50 years of Luxemburg-Casco football was celebrated with over 100 alumnus honored at intermission.  L-C came out and scored two early third quarter touchdowns to seal the victory.

 

Spartan Garrit Aissen making his first varsity start at quarterback was 10 for 19 in passing for 132 yards and two touchdowns.  Ian Doell had a big game at receiver with 100 yards on six catches.  The running game of Coisman,  Austin Tlachac and Dakota Robinson combined for 273 yards as the Spartans big offensive night exploded for over 400 yards in  total offense.  Dawson Gmeinder led a stingy Spartan defense with eight tackles and a fumble recovery.

 

Luxemburg-Casco (1-0) will now travel to Appleton to play the Fox Valley Lutheran Foxes next  Friday night.  The game will be broadcast on 96.7FM WBDK with the pregame starting at 6:30 p.m. and kick-off set for 7 p.m.

For only the second time since 2011, the Packers kicked off their preseason slate at home, hosting the Philadelphia Eagles in the preseason for the second time in the last three years.

By Green Bay Packers




With a win over the Philadelphia Eagles last week, the Green Bay Packers won their preseason opener for the third consecutive year. 'The Pack' will look to continue their winning ways Saturday night against the Redskins. Aaron Rodgers is expected to play the first series.

Packers Will Travel To Washington


By Green Bay Packers




The Green Bay Packers will go on the road to play the Washington Redskins in their second game of the preseason Saturday. It will be the 26th time that Green Bay has played Washington during the preseason, the second most in team history behind only the Packers' 30 games against the N.Y. Giants.

 

This is the first preseason meeting between the clubs since 1995, when the teams played at Lambeau Field. The Packers are visiting the Redskins in the preseason for the first time since 1978.

Kickoff Saturday will take place at 6:30 PM.

Brewers Close In On Division Lead


By Brett Kinnard




The Milwaukee Brewers beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-1 on Tuesday night. Zach Davies started for Milwaukee and went nearly seven innings only giving up one earned run on the night. Corey Knebel came in to shut the door on the Pirates and earn his 23rd save.

 

Runs were hard to come by for the Brewers in this game. Manny Piña drove in two of the runs on a fielder's choice and a single. The big highlight of the night was Keon Broxton's solo shot in the seventh inning to put the Brewers up for good.

 

Milwaukee will now play game two against the Pirates on Wednesday. First pitch being thrown out at 1:10. The Brewers are tied with the Cardinals just a game and a half back of the Cubs.

Brewers Hope To Take Advantage Of Two Days Off This Week


By Nick Freimuth




The Milwaukee Brewers had a day off Monday. Trailing the Chicago Cubs (62-55) by 2.5 games in the NL Central, the Brewers own a (61-59) record. The St. Louis Cardinals are a game in front of the Brewers but still 1.5 games back of the reigning World Series Champions at (61-59).

 

The Brewers open up a two-game series with the Pirates (58-60) tonight at 6:40. Pittsburgh is just two games back of Milwaukee in the NL Central and 4.5 games back of the division leaders. Tomorrow's series finale will begin at 1:10 PM.

Lambeau Field To Host Notre Dame Vs. Wisconsin Game In 2020


By Green Bay Packers




 

The University of Notre Dame and University of Wisconsin have agreed to a two-year, neutral-site football series beginning in 2020.
The Irish and Badgers will play Oct. 3, 2020, at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wis., andSept. 25, 2021, at Soldier Field in Chicago. The contests will mark the first meetings between Notre Dame and Wisconsin since a three-game series from 1962-64.

 

"We're honored to have the opportunity to host Notre Dame and Wisconsin, two excellent schools and storied college football programs," said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. "We're excited to welcome fans of both schools for what is sure to be an incredible weekend here in Green Bay, and we're looking forward to enjoying the college atmosphere once again at Lambeau Field."

 

This announcement comes after the successful Lambeau Field College Classic on Sept. 3, 2016, between LSU and Wisconsin. The contest had a significant economic impact on the Green Bay area, as fans from both contingents traveled to the area for the week of the game.

 

Interestingly enough, 2020 will mark Notre Dame's first-ever appearance at legendary Lambeau Field, which is named after Curly Lambeau – former Irish player and eventual founder of the Green Bay Packers. Wisconsin has played just once in the stadium, last year's 16-14 victory over No. 5 LSU in the Lambeau Field College Classic.

 

The Wisconsin-Notre Dame meeting in 2020 will mark just the second major college football game in the history of Lambeau Field, and the second college game of any kind since NCAA Division III St. Norbert faced Fordham in 1983.

 

Details regarding game time, tickets and other related information will be announced at a later date.

Milwaukee will now start a series with Pittsburgh on Tuesday. First pitch being thrown out at 6:40.

Busy Weekend Of Roster Moves For The Green Bay Packers


By Green Bay Packers




The Green Bay Packers claimed defensive end Shaneil Jenkins off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks and placed tight end Beau Sandland on injured reserve. Green Bay also signed long snapper Brett Goode. The transactions were announced by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.

 

Goode, 6-foot-1, 255 pounds, is entering his 10th season in the NFL. He was originally signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent from the University of Arkansas in 2007. Goode spent part of two off-seasons with Jacksonville before signing with the Packers on Sept. 1, 2008.

After being released by the Broncos on Aug. 3, 2016, he signed with the Dallas Cowboys on Aug. 7, 2016, but was released on Sept. 2, 2016. Jenkins was signed to the Seattle Seahawks' practice squad on Dec. 6, 2016, where he spent the remainder of the season and off-season before being released on Aug. 12, 2017. As a senior at Shepherd, he recorded 13.5 sacks and was named Mountain East Conference Defensive Player of the Year. Jenkins will wear No. 72 for the Packers.

Brewers End Wild Night In Walk-Off Fashion Against Reds


By Tim Kowols




Eric Sogard's swipe of home plate on a Tim Adelman wild pitch led the Milwaukee Brewers past the Cincinnati Reds 6-5 in 10 innings. A night after the Reds took game one 11-10, the scoring picked up right where it left off when Adam Duvall and Travis Shaw traded homers in the first frame, giving the Brewers a 3-2 lead. After the Reds retook the lead with a pair of homers in consecutive innings, Ryan Braun (5th inning) and Eric Thames (6th inning) brought the Brewers back to even with their own long balls. Sogard capped things off in the 10th with his walk-off score with Ryan Braun standing in the batter's box. Corey Knebel received the win after giving up no runs in the top of the 10th. The Brewers and the Reds wrap things up this afternoon at Miller Park beginning at 1:10.

Packers Sign Long Snapper Goode


By Tim Kowols




The Green Bay Packers addressed a special teams concern Saturday when they signed long snapper Brett Goode to a $885,000, 1 -year contract according to the Wisconsin State Journal . Goode had been the Packers long snapper for nine seasons before the front office decided to let him walk after the end of last season. He will compete against current long snapper Derek Hart, who was a part of the battery that struggled at Packers Family Night, but rebounded nicely in their first preseason matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Sturgeon Bay Clipper Football Shooting For Playoffs This Year


By Connor Sannito



The Sturgeon Bay high school football team appears strong in their second week of practice.


Head coach Mike LeRoy is confident in this year's football team. Backed by a senior dominate lineup, the leadership is undisputed. In addition to the high volume of upperclassmen players, the Clippers look to take advantage and play with a physically dominate playset - that is thanks to the early rigours of the team's practices.


The Sturgeon Bay high school team practices run on a short day schedule: a three hour long session with a 30 minute intermission water break. They practice five times a week.





 

Uniquely this season, the Sturgeon Bay Clippers have enough players for a Junior Varsity team. Also, coach LeRoy has set goals for his Varsity squad.


 



 

The Sturgeon Bay Clippers first official game is played here at home: August 18th against Valders.


 

A Few Favorite Smallmouth Bass Lures


By Bill Schultz




This is a great time of the year to get out for some kayak fishing in Door County.  Although it can be a little more challenging finding those smallmouth bass.  Let me give you some tips on a few lures that might help you catch and release those exciting Door County smallies.

 

For 10 years, my favorite presentation has been swimming a Kalin's Lunker Grub.  This is a great presentation when you find bass in shallow to about eight feet of water, and very simple.  Thread the Kalin's on a 1/16th up to 1/8th ounce jig, cast as far as you can and retrieve it slow and steady.  At this time of year, the four and five inch versions will be the best.  My suggestion is to try a variety of colors, but, for me, the four-inch version in Smoke Salt and Pepper is my favorite.  To get the casting distance in our clear waters, I am using St. Croix medium-light fast action rods that are 7'6".

 

The other presentation that has been so successful for me the past two years in both shallower water, up to water as deep as 25 feet, is the Ned Rig.  This is a newer presentation that is also quite simple to use.  I am using a 1/16th to 3/32th ounce jig with a #1 hook and the Z-Man Finesse TRD or TRD TubeZ.  Both are finesse lures and under three inches in length.  Made from Z-Man's ElaZTech plastic, they float and stand up off the bottom, unlike most soft plastics.  This gives a look the smallies can't resist.  For this presentation, I'm using 7' medium-light fast action St. Croix rods.  You simply cast, let settle on the bottom and lightly twitch it as you retrieve very slowly.  

 

With all my clear water presentations, I am adding a 30" to 40" fluorocarbon leader to my very small diameter braid or super line.  This is done with a Uni to Uni knot.  

 

If you have a chance to get on the water to chase smallmouth bass, these are tremendous presentations.  If you have any questions, please email me at kayakfishingwisconsin@gmail.com, and, I'll be happy to answer your questions.

Brewers Fall To .500 After Losing To Reds 11-10


By Paul Schmitt




The Milwaukee Brewers lost for the sixth consecutive game with an 11-10 slugfest defeat to the Cincinnati Reds.  This time the culprit was starting pitching for the Brewers as Jimmy Nelson could not get out of the fourth inning and gave up 10 runs.  The Brewers fought back valiantly with a seven run sixth inning that got them within one run, but the Reds hung on for the win.  The Brewers now are tied for third place in the National League Central with the Pittsburg Pirates, three games behind the Chicago Cubs.  The Brewers (53-53) will look to snap the losing streak tonight at Miller Park with game two of the series starting at 6:10 p.m.

Injuries Plague Packers In Pre-Season Win


By Nick Freimuth




The NFL pre-season is an enigma for fans, players and coaches. There are a number of really good things that can come out of the exhibition schedule. However, the list of negatives can really hurt a team. That may have happened to the Packers Thursday  night in their 24-9 win over the Eagles.

 

Injuries sustained by Don Barclay (ankle). Damarious Randall (concussion),  Malachi Dupre (chest) all looked serious. Dupre was stretchered off the field and was in the hospital last night going through a battery of tests. The rookie wide receiver out of LSU has shown flashes of brilliance during training camp.

 

Green Bay was led in pre-season game number one by third-year quarterback Brett Hundley. He led Green Bay to a 17-point second quarter including 20-yard touchdown pass to Jeff Janis that was followed by a Lambeau Leap from both quarterback and receiver.

 

Joe Callahan played most of the second half and finished with 103 passing yards and a 10/16 day at the office. DeAngelo Yancey was the teams leading receiver with six receptions for 67 yards. Max McCaffrey also tallied six catches for 60 yards.

 

Green Bay will be on the road for the next two exhibition games. They will play the Washington Redskins next on Saturday, August 19 at 6:30 PM.

Twins Sweep Four-Game Series With Brewers


By Brett Kinnard




The Milwaukee Brewers lost to the Minnesota Twins Thursday night 7-2. Zach Davies started on the mound for the Brewers and only made it through five innings giving up six earned runs on the night. Milwaukee was playing catch up the whole game.

 

Keon Broxton has been a constant hot bat in the lineup for the Brewers. He hit a 383 foot bomb in the second hitting to keep his recent power surge going. Ryan Braun and Travis Shaw each added two hits on the night as well.

 

Milwaukee will now head home and open up a series against the Reds. First pitch will be thrown out at 7:10 Friday night.

Bring Your Ponchos To Lambeau Field Tonight


By Nick Freimuth




The kickoff to the NFL pre-season for the Packers will come at a likely rainy Lambeau Field. The 7:30 PM kickoff will probably be a saturated one and fans are reminded umbrellas are not permitted in the stadium. So gather your rain ponchos before you leave for the game tonight.

 

The number of snaps Aaron Rodgers will take tonight is unknown. He may take just the first series, the first quarter or he may not take any snaps tonight. If the conditions are less than ideal, it is even less likely Rodgers will play tonight against the Eagles.

 

Tonight will mark the beginning of a very big pre-season for backup quarterback Brett Hundley. Hundley is presumably auditioning for his next job. If he performs well in the next four games his stock will rise even higher. It is expected that Green Bay would trade him after the season to garner more draft picks before Hundley's rookie contract expires after next season.

Brewers Losing Streak Now At Four Games


By Brett Kinnard




The Milwaukee Brewers lost to the Minnesota Twins Wednesday night 4-0. Brandon Woodruff got his second start of the season for Milwaukee and went nearly six innings only giving up two earned runs on the night.

 

'The Crew' had a hard time getting the bats going all night. Orlando Arcia and Ryan Braun combined for four of the five total hits on the night. The rest of the team went hit-less. The Brewers will look. To get the bats going in the final game of this series.

 

Milwaukee will take on the Twins Thursday night in the final game of this series. First pitch will be thrown out at 7:10.

Sturgeon Bay High School soccer team captain's practices are showing progress.


The high school team started as early as the first week in June with a senior captain coordinating practices. The practices consist of a warm up, a few drills, and then they roll into a long scrimmage finishing the session. The players have been organizing practices 5-6 times a week, from 6:30 p.m. until you cannot see the ball, all summer long.


The ultimate goal of a practice without the contact of the head coach, Todd Maas, is to attain familiarity, chemistry, and gather kids - who wouldn't normally play in the summer - together. The senior captain, Jaden Stevenson, had this to say.


 



 

Stevenson is a promising captain for the Sturgeon Bay Clippers. He holds the goal record of 120 as a career total entering his final season. In addition, he plays up an age group for a MRL (Midwest Regional League) team: FC Wisconsin North. There, he is also the club's top scorer. Stevenson is among the elite players of the Midwest.


This year's boy's High School soccer team is hoping to repeat another season as successful as the 2015 team which won state. The players bring passion to every practice, invigorated for the upcoming soccer season. However, the majority of the team is underclassmen; the team is considerably young.


Actual practices with the coaching staff start in the second week of August.


Packers Pre-Season Ready To Take Off


By Green Bay Packers




The Packers' preseason schedule opens at Lambeau Field tomorrow night and features three games against NFC teams during the next four weeks. For only the second time since 2011, the Packers will kick off their preseason slate at home, hosting the Philadelphia Eagles in the preseason for the second time in the last three years. It will be the first time that Green Bay has opened the preseason against the Eagles since visiting Philadelphia in the 2002 opener.

 

Green Bay will play the next two games on the road, first visiting the Washington Redskins in the preseason for the first time since 1978. This will be the first preseason meeting between the clubs since 1995, when the teams played at Lambeau Field. It will be the 26th time that Green Bay has played Washington during the preseason, the second most in team history behind only the Packers' 30 games against the N.Y. Giants.

 

The Packers next travel to Denver to face the Broncos. It is Green Bay's first preseason visit to Denver since 2008. Prior to that, the teams had not played since squaring off in four straight preseasons (1998-2001).

 

The Packers finish the preseason with a home game against the Los Angeles Rams, the first preseason meeting between the clubs at Lambeau Field. The only other time that the Packers hosted the Rams in the preseason came in 1994 when the teams faced off in Madison. It will be the third preseason meeting between the teams in the last five seasons.

Brewers Lose Game Two Against Twins 


By Brett Kinnard




The Milwaukee Brewers lost to the Minnesota Twins 11-4 on Tuesday night. Matt Garza started for Milwaukee and was only able to make it through three innings after giving up eight runs to the Twins.

 

Ryan Braun went 3x4 in the game and was only a homer short of the cycle. Domingo Santana and Orlando Arcia both went 3x4 as well but it wasn't enough as the Brewers fell to the Twins.

 

Milwaukee will resume their series against the Twins on Wednesday night. First pitch will be thrown out 7:10.

Packers Release Letroy Guion


By Green Bay Packers




The Green Bay Packers have released defensive tackle Letroy Guion. The transaction was announced Tuesday by Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations.

 

Guion played in 44 regular season-games with 35 starts for Green Bay over the last three seasons and appeared in seven postseason contests with five starts.

Bishop's Charity Game Set For Thursday


By Green Bay Packers




Thursday night marks another Green Bay preseason tradition: the Bishop's Charities Game. It was first played in 1961 after Vince Lombardi was approached by the Diocese of Green Bay about playing a charitable contest in Green Bay (the Shrine contest was a fixture in Milwaukee). The series enjoys its 57th contest this year and has raised more than $3.7 million.

 

For more than 30 years, the church handled much of the game's business-related tasks, including game-program and advertising sales, using a network of volunteers covering 14 counties throughout northeastern Wisconsin. The Packers assumed many of those tasks beginning in 1994.

 

The Packers are 31-24-1 all-time in the series. u The Eagles will be making their second appearance in the Bishop's Charities Game. Their lone appearance came in 1983, a 27-14 Philadelphia victory.

 

Green Bay has won three consecutive contests and seven of the last eight games in the series, including a 20-12 victory over the Oakland Raiders last year. Prior to that, the Packers had lost six consecutive Bishop's Charities contests. That six-game losing streak (2003-08) came on the heels of a 12-game winning streak (1991-2002) in the series. Over the last three Bishop's Charities Games, the Packers have outscored their opponents, 92-36.

Brewers Fall To Twins


By Brett Kinnard




The Milwaukee Brewers lost to the Minnesota Twins on Monday night 5-4. Brent Suter started on the mound for Milwaukee and went four innings only giving up two runs. Oliver Drake took the loss on the night.

 

Keon Broxton kept it hot at the plate as he sent a 431 foot bomb out of here to put Milwaukee up 1-0. Ryan Braun also collected three hits on the day for the Brewers. Those efforts still came short and the Brewers weren't able to rally back late.

 

Milwaukee will now continue their series with the Twins on Tuesday. First pitch will be thrown out at 7:10.

Packers Preparing For Pre-Season Opener Thursday At Lambeau Field


By Green Bay Packers




The Green Bay Packers will take on the Philadelphia Eagles in the preseason opener at Lambeau Field Thursday. This will be the 16th time Green Bay and Philadelphia have met during the preseason. The Eagles lead the preseason series, (9-6).

 

The last time the two teams met was during the regular season last year, a 27-13 Packers victory at Philadelphia that gave Green Bay a 26-14 lead in the regular-season series. The Packers and Eagles last played each other during the preseason in 2015, a 39-26 road victory by Philadelphia. This will be the fifth consecutive year that the Packers and Eagles have faced each other in the preseason or regular season.

 

The Packers will take to the road for their second preseason game, traveling to play the Washington Redskins on Saturday, Aug. 19, at 6:30 p.m. CST.

Brewers Lose In Walk-Off Fashion


By Nick Freimuth




Milwaukee Brewers reliever Jacob Barnes served up the game winning pitch in the bottom of the ninth inning to the Tampa Bay Rays Sunday afternoon. Steven Souza Jr. hit his 24th home run of the season to lift his team to a 2-1 win.

 

Ryan Braun was the only player to have more than one hit for Milwaukee. Orlando Arcia accounted for the teams only RBI.

 

The Cubs also lost Sunday so the Brewers remain just a half a game back of Chicago in the NL Central standings.

Rain Forces Another Doubleheader For Door County Baseball League


By Tim Kowols

Kolberg and West Jacksonport were slated to play Saturday, but will instead play two this afternoon beginning at noon. It was also announced Kolberg will play another doubleheader August 20 facing Sister Bay and Baileys Harbor.

 

Elsewhere in Door County Sunday afternoon, Baileys Harbor hops on the ferry to take on Washington Island and Sister Bay travels to Maplewood. Those games begin at 1:30 p.m.

Brewers Shut Out Rays 3-0


By Tim Kowols




Zach Davies successfully one-upped teammate Brandon Woodruff Saturday night as he lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 3-0 shut-out of the Tampa Bay Rays. Davies pitched seven innings of one hit ball while Jacob Barnes and Anthony Swarzak kept the Rays in check to preserve the shutout. Orlando Arcia's RBI double would be the only run the Brewers would need, driving in Keon Broxton in the third inning. The Brewers added insurance in 9th inning with Hernan Perez slugging his 12th home run of the year and Eric Thames getting credit for a RBI after Jesus Aguilar scored on a wild pitch. The series sweep remains in order as the Brewers face the Rays in a Sunday matinee beginning at 12:10 p.m.

Bullfrogs Blown Out in Rockford 10-1


By Tim Kowols




The Green Bay Bullfrogs had a 1-0 lead Saturday after Kyle Benyo's RBI single. It was downhill after that as the Bullfrogs fell to the Rockford Rivets 10-1. Five errors were the main culprit for their demise despite outhitting the Rivets 10-9. The Bullfrogs will give it another try in Rockford this afternoon at 4:05.

Packers Get Their Work In During Family Night Festivities


By Tim Kowols




Over 63,000 people waited out some early storms to see their Green Bay Packers take the hallowed grounds of Lambeau Field for the first time since they defeated the New York Giants in the NFC Wild Card Round in January. Rain and a storm cell delayed the start by about a half hour as the bleachers were still filling in when the Packers took the field for warm-ups. While two-minute drill sputtered a little bit, it was only because the Packers defense shined as defensive tackle Kenny Clark stripped Mark Ripkowski to force a fumble recovered by Clay Matthews. Kicker Mason Crosby closed things out with a rough night after going a near perfect 22-23 before the scrimmage. No major injuries occurred during the nearly 100-minute practice, which gave way to fireworks at about 9:45 p.m.

 

The Packers will have Sunday off before going back to the practice field Monday as they prepare to face the Philadelphia Eagles at Lambeau Field Thursday evening.

Brewers Gain A Game On The Cubs


By Brett Kinnard




The Milwaukee Brewers beat St. Louis 2-1 to win their first series over the cardinals at home since 2013. Matt Garza started for Milwaukee and only allowed one run in over five innings of work. Corey Knebel came in to secure the win and earn his 20th save of the season.

Brewers Take Loss In Game Two


By Brett Kinnard




The Milwaukee Brewers lost to the St. Louis Cardinals 5-4 on Wednesday night. Brent Suter started on the bump for Milwaukee. He went five and a third innings giving up five earned runs while striking out seven on the night.

 

The bats just didn't quite have enough pop to route the Cardinals in this game. Eric Thames and Jesus Aguilar both hit bombs for the Brewers. Ryan Braun and Orlando Arcia did their part in both adding doubles in the loss.

 

Milwaukee will now host St. Louis in the final game of this series Thursday afternoon. First pitch will be thrown out at 1:10

Bullfrogs Post Another Comeback Win Over Wisconsin


By Tim Kowols




Spotting the visiting Wisconsin Woodchucks a four-run lead, the Green Bay Bullfrogs came back to win the game 9-6. The Bullfrogs used two runs in the fourth and four runs in the fifth to take a lead they would not give up. Leading the offense for the Bullfrogs was Dan Leckie with three RBIs and a home run and Riley Smith also posting three RBIs.

Brewers Acquire Former Closer Jeffress


By Tim Kowols




In an otherwise quiet trade deadline in Milwaukee, the Brewers traded for Texas Rangers reliever Jeremy Jeffress to shore up the back end of the bullpen. Going the other way in the deal was double-A reliever Taylor Scott. Jeffress was a throw-in piece in the Jonathan Lucroy deal to Texas, so this marks a homecoming of sorts for the former Brewers closer. Jeffress has been experiencing a down season in the AL, going 1-2 with a 5.31 ERA. Kirk Nieuwenhuis was designated for assignment to make room for Jeffress. He could make his debut tonight when the Brewers host the St. Louis Cardinals.
