Opening Day Sturgeon Bay Little League Results

By Chris Ranly   In Minor League Softball, Forbes held on to beat Peil Construction 4-3.  Kayla Ranly pitched for Forbes to get the teams first win of the season. Sienna Cain tallied two hits in a game that had the jump on Mother Nature and kept fans/parents on the edge of the bleacher seats.

Northshore Bank topped Reliable Auto 4-2 for their game day opener.

Major League

In the early game, State Farm ended up beating Jim Olson Motors 16-7 with State Farm earning their first win of the season (1-0).  Teagan Ellefson was the leading hitter for Jim Olson Motors going 2x3.  Kaylee Kriska went 2x3 and Naomi Rikkola going 1x2 helped State Farm to their first win.

Mother Nature had a hand in the late game when the Lions had their opener against Cut Hut.  Maddie Propsom and Taylor Tlachac battled it out on the mound as the score stayed pretty even throughout the entire game. A late run by Cut Hut before the downpour of rain ended the opening night of softball with Cut Hut winning 8-4 over the Lions.  Mother Nature was the overall winner of that game.

Brewers Win Sixth Straight Series

By Brett Kinnard    The Milwaukee Brewers beat the St. Louis Cardinals yesterday 3-2. Junior Guerra started on the bump for the Brewers and was hard to hit. He went six innings strong of shutout baseball while fanning seven Cardinals. It was Christian Yelich tying the game up with a solo shot in the seventh inning. Orlando Arica then drove in an RBI single in his first game back from Triple-A. After taking the lead, Milwaukee never looked back and Corey Knebel closed the door in the ninth. The Brewers now have a much needed day off. They start a weekend series against the Chicago White Sox on Friday in Chicago.

Packers Sign Veteran Offensive Lineman

By Green Bay Packers   The Green Bay Packers signed T/G Byron Bell and released T/G Jacob Alsadek. General Manager Brian Gutekunst announced the transactions Wednesday.

Bell (6-5, 320), has played in 90 career games with 74 starts during the regular season and started all three postseason games he appeared in. He was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent out of New Mexico by the Carolina Panthers on July 28, 2011. He played in 62 games with 56 starts for the Panthers over four seasons (2011-14), playing right and left tackle. Bell also started all three postseason games he played in for Carolina. During the 2015 offseason, he signed with the Tennessee Titans, where he started all 16 games during his first year (seven at left guard, eight at right tackle and one at left tackle) and then missed the entire 2016 season after suffering an ankle injury during OTAs. In 2017, Bell played in 12 games with two starts (both at left tackle) for the Dallas Cowboys. He will wear No. 74 for the Packers.

Alsadek (al-SEH-deck) signed with the Packers as a rookie free agent out of the University of Arizona on May 4.

Gibraltar claims Regional Championship on 105.1 WSBW

By Eric Fischer

The Gibraltar Vikings are Regional Champions following an 11-5 win over Mishicot on Wednesday evening on 105.1 WSBW.  Gibraltar set the pace early following an Alex Laughlin sacrifice fly that scored Ben Johnson, giving the Vikings a 1-0 lead in the first. Mishicot would tie the game in the first, and take a 2-1 lead in the second.  Gibraltar took advantage of an Alex Laughlin 2-RBI double, who then scored on a Griff Reinhardt single in the third for a 4-2 advantage it would not give up.  Mishicot brought the game within 1 until a 7 run, 7th inning.  Laughlin was hit by a pitch with one out in the inning that sparked another Gibraltar rally.  Following Laughlin, was a Griff Reinhardt walk, then a 2-RBI double by catcher Andras Szakala.  First baseman Nate Ewaskowitz and left fielder Brandon Stillman each walked to load the bases for Spencer Krause 2-run single.  Ben Johnson cleared the bases on a double and was brought in by a Trevor Reinhardt sacrifice fly.  Laughlin and Trevor Reinhardt each went 3-4 in the game, combining for 4 RBI.  Laughlin also earned the win on the mound.  Gibraltar moves on to Sectionals for a potential doubleheader on Tuesday, June 5th with a trip to State on the line.



Luxemburg-Casco was also a regional champion. The Spartans were played spoiler just like the Vikings as a #3 seed upsetting a #1 seed. L-C beat rival #1 seed Denmark 4-3 to advance to a sectional semi-final Tuesday at 1:00 PM at Chilton against Fox Valley Lutheran.

Wisconsin could add Wrigley game in 2020

By Tim Kowols       

If playing at Lambeau Field against Notre Dame was not enough, Wisconsin football may have added another historic venue to their 2020 slate. According to the Chicago Tribune, Northwestern University and the Chicago Cubs are expected to announce on Tuesday the return of college football to Wrigley Field with Wisconsin as the opponent on November 7. The Wildcats have not played a home game at Wrigley Field since they were trounced by Illinois 48-27 in front of over 41,000 fans in 2010. Renovations at the ballpark, including one project that would allow offenses to drive towards both ends of the field, delayed the return. Wisconsin leads the all-time series against Northwestern 59-35-5.

Cardinals Snap Brewers Win Streak

By Brett Kinnard   The Milwaukee Brewers lost to the St. Louis Cardinals yesterday 6-1. Milwaukee had a hard time getting the bats going against Michael Wacha as he went nearly seven innings of one run ball.

Zach Davies started on the mound for the Brewers for the first time since he came off the DL. He struggled fining the zone as he gave up five runs in five innings. Jonathan Villar helped score the only run of the game with an RBI double.

The Brewers now continue their home stand against the Cardinals. Junior Guerra will take the mound this afternoon. First pitch being thrown out at 12:10.

Sturgeon Bay Baseball Eliminated From Post Season

By John Berns    In a game seen too many times this season, Sturgeon Bay was unable to close out the seventh inning in a 4-3 loss to Denmark in a Regional Semi-Final baseball game on Tuesday. Holding a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the seventh inning the meltdown happened quickly. A walk, two wild pitches, hit batter, and two errors saw Denmark handed the win without the benefit of a hit.


The Clippers had taken a 1-0 lead in the 1st inning when Anthony Moore walked, stole 2nd base, and scored on a Trent Ehlers ground out. Denmark took the lead in the 2nd inning on consecutive 2-out bases loaded walks. A pair of Denmark throwing errors in the 3rd and 4th innings saw the Clippers take a 3-2 lead which they held until the decisive final inning. Starting pitchers Jake Schneider for Sturgeon Bay and Cole Paplham both pitched well, but neither earned a decision.


Brennon Miller took the win in relief for the Vikings, while Trent Ehlers took the loss for the Clippers. Jared Van Bramer led the Clippers with a 2x4 performance at the plate, and Anthony Moore scored two runs, giving the stellar lead-off man 36 runs scored on the 19-game season. Moore's 36 runs scored is believed to be an all-time record for Sturgeon Bay Baseball. The Clippers finish the season 14-5, with a Packerland Conference Co-Championship, but once again falling short in tournament competition.


Luxemburg-Casco was a 6-4 winner over #2 Valders. The #3 seed Spartans will play #1 Denmark this afternoon, weather permitting.

Conference Championship Soccer Celebrated In Sturgeon Bay

By Bob Desotelle   Host school Sturgeon Bay had to play "come from behind" soccer Tuesday night at Clark Field to close their regular season against visiting NEW.  NEW's Lydia Nelson found a loose ball inside the 18 and powered a shot past Keeper McKenna Gibson to give NEW a lead they would carry into halftime.  Leading 1-0, NEW came out strong in the second half, but a goal by Anna Fischer tied the game midway through the period.  After that score, the Clippers turned the pressure up on the NEW defense.  Mid fielder Claire Tellstrom finally sealed the win with a goal late in the half giving Sturgeon Bay a 2-1 victory and an undefeated record in the Packerland Conference.


"Our last three wins in conference have all been one goal margins and tough wins" (Coach Desotelle).  "We are proud of the way our team has responded under pressure these last five games.  They have showed determination and grit when it has been needed most.  We played without our starting forward tonight and at half we put Anna Fischer in that position because we were unable to finish despite numerous shots on goal in the first half.  She led her team to a very big win and was supported by Claire Tellstrom  who scored late in the game to give us the win."


Sturgeon Bay finishes the regular season 8-2-3 and will travel to host New Holstein Thursday (7:00 p.m. kick off) for a first round Regional matchup.

Packerland Softball (0-3) In Sectional Semi-Finals Tuesday

By Nick Freimuth   It was a tough afternoon of sectional softball for the Packerland Conference Tuesday. All three remaining Packerland teams lost including two in extra innings. Southern Door fell to Brillion 5-4 in eight innings. The Eagles were up 4-2 until Brillion tied the game in the bottom of seventh inning on two unearned runs. In the bottom of the eighth, Southern Door had 2 outs and Brillion came up with three straight hits to score the winning run. The Eagles leading hitters were: Erin Tadych - three hits and Kylie Neinas - two hits including a triple. Lexi Wery pitched the first four innings. Grace LeGrave came in the fifth inning to pitch the rest of the game and took the loss.


Algoma fell hard to Manitowoc Lutheran 11-2 and Oconto lost 4-3 in ten innings to Tomahawk.

Gibraltar storms past Kewaunee to advance to Regional Championship on 105.1 WSBW

By Eric Fischer

The Gibraltar Vikings cruised past the Kewaunee Storm on Tuesday night winning 15-1 in 6 innings to advance to the Regional Championship and will face the winner of Roncalli/Mishicot on Wednesday afternoon.  In Tuesday's contest, every Gibraltar hitter reached base safely at least once in the game.  The first four hitters in the lineup, Ben Johnson, Luke Steebs, Trevor Reinhardt, and Alex Laughlin combined for 11 hits in 18 official plate appearances and tallied 6 RBI.  Leading the way was Luke Steebs who had a 4-5 performance and scored 3 runs.  Laughlin officially finished 2-2 with an RBI and two walks as well, with a 3-5 effort by Ben Johnson including 4 RBI.  Trevor Reinhardt earned his second straight playoff win on the mound, allowing just one run, on just four hits, and striking out five batters in the six-inning contest.

#1 seed Mishicot defeated Roncalli, the Vikings will now travel to Mishicot.  Stay tuned to for updates and broadcast information.

Brewers Win Streak At Four

By Nick Freimuth   The Milwaukee Brewers ran their win streak to four games Monday with an 8-3 win over the st. Louis Cardinals. Milwaukee has the best record in the National League at (35-20) and has two more games left in the series. Ryan Braun went 3x3 and reached base all four times he came to the plate. Christian Yelich hit his sixth home run in the third inning. Jonathan Villar blasted his third home run in the seventh inning to give Milwaukee enough breathing room to take the Cardinals down in the series opener.

Southern Door Volleyball League Standings

By Nick Freimuth    The Southern Door co-ed volleyball league is entering its third week of play Thursday and the cream is already rising to the top. There are four undefeated (6-0) teams and one (3-0) team. Here is a look at league standings following the first two weeks of play as provided by conference commissioner Chad Shefchik. The Southern Door summer volleyball league is played every Thursday night throughout the summer at local establishments in the Southern Door area.


Gibraltar looks to extend season in regional matchup at Kewaunee on 105.1 The Viking

By Tim Kowols       

Snow was still on the ground the last time the Gibraltar Vikings and Kewaunee Storm met, but this time it is win or go home as the two look to advance in the WIAA baseball tournament. In the first match-up of the season, the see-saw affair ended in the bottom of the seventh when walks doomed the Vikings and a free pass gave the Storm the 4-3 victory. The Storm would go on to win the second game 10-3. Trevor Reinhardt's pitching and a long nine-run inning gave the Vikings the win last Thursday over the Algoma Wolves 10-0, while the Storm got a chance to rest up. The winner of Tuesday's matchup will go on to face the winner of Roncalli and Mishicot.

Tim Kowols and Eric Fischer will have the call from Kewaunee beginning at 4:00 p.m. with the pregame show and the first pitch at 4:30. Other local baseball action includes Luxemburg-Casco heading to Valders and Sturgeon Bay traveling to Denmark.

Bass fishing heated up fast over the weekend

By Paul Schmitt    

Water temperatures, as well as small-mouth bass fishing, heated up this past weekend.  Door County Fishing Professional  JJ Malvitz says the recent hot weather along with the calming of winds added to productive days on the water.  He says the bass definitely like the warmer water temperatures and anglers are taking advantage of the timing.


Malvitz says the smallmouth bass are not in the all-out spawning mode yet, but they are searching out the shallow water areas that they traditionally go to eventually spawn.  He says water temperatures Monday ranged from the low 50s in northern Door County to the low 60's in southern Door County.  The largest bass in the history of the Sturgeon Bay Open Bass Tournament was caught last weekend weighing nearly nine pounds.

Casco Marine memorialized with 9th annual softball tournament

By Paul Schmitt    

As Memorial Day ceremonies were celebrated throughout Door and Kewaunee Counties Monday morning, a 1997 graduate of Luxemburg-Casco High School will be memorialized this coming weekend.  The 9th annual Lance Corporal Dean Opicka Softball Tournament will be held at the Casco Village Park from Thursday through Sunday.  Opicka served in the Marines and Operation Iraqi Freedom and was one of three L-C graduates who died in the Iraq War.  Dennis Opicka says the softball tournament and motorcycle ride on Sunday is a perfect way to remember his brother.


The softball tournament begins at 6:15 Thursday evening with the motorcycle ride on Sunday beginning at 10:30 in the morning.  All proceeds from the events benefit the Lance Corporal Dean Opicka Memorial Fund that supports local academic scholarships and local hardship gifts.

Local coach concerned kids are overworking themselves

By Eric Fischer

As the school year comes to an end, a local coach is concerned about the number of kids signing up for sports.  With the increasing amount of specialization, kids only playing one or two sports, spring and summer workout programs are seeing declining numbers, as well as an increase in injuries.  Neil Seering, head coach of the Luxemburg-Casco track team and assistant football coach says kids are being pulled in too many directions.


Coach Seering advocates for a return to multisport athletes, having been a former three-sport athlete himself, as each sport trains the body to work in different ways, preventing injury.  A USA Today High School Sports study recently showed 29 of the first 32 players selected in the 2018 NFL Draft were multisport athletes, which Seering hopes continues going forward.

Brewers Take Series From Mets

By Nick Freimuth   The Brewers have now won 13 out of 16 games following an 8-7 win over the Mets in the series finale in Milwaukee Sunday. A see-saw affair saw the Brewers take the lead for good in the seventh inning when they posted four runs in the frame. Jesus Aguilar notched four more RBI including his ninth home run on the season in the third inning. Boone Logan earned the win out of the bullpen.


Milwaukee opens a three game series at home with the Cardinals starting Monday at 1:10 PM. Milwaukee is now (34-20) on the season.

Packerland All-Conference Softball Awards

By Nick Freimuth   It was a short but sweet season for Packerland Conference softball. Some of the in-season highlights included a perfect game thrown by Southern Door pitcher Lexy Wery, Algoma's deep run into the post season and Southern Door's continued success. Oconto led the league with five players selected to the first team. Here is a look at the 2018 All-Conference teams as provided by conference commissioner Mike Holtz:

Wisconsin tradition comes to an end

By Eric Fischer


For the past 19 years, Fox Cities Stadium in Appleton has hosted the NCAA Division III College World Series, a tradition that will come to an end early this week.    Since moving to Appleton in 2000, Wisconsin has been represented in the finals three times, with UW-Whitewater winning the College World Series in 2005 and 2014, and UW-LaCrosse coming up short in 2015, losing to SUNY Cortland.  Wisconsin will not be represented this year, but fans will still have a few opportunities to watch college baseball in Appleton on Sunday, Monday, and possibly Tuesday.  Action gets underway at 11 am Sunday morning with elimination games: Randolph-Macon vs. Misericordia and Swarthmore vs. Texas Lutheran.  The Randolph-Macon-Misericordia winner will face UT-Tyler and Swarthmore vs. Texas Lutheran playing Concordia-Chicago in the nightcap.  The winners of the semi-finals games will play a best of three series scheduled for May 28th and 29th.  Fox Cities Stadium is the home of the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers, and also hosts the Packers charity softball game and WIAA State Baseball tournament.

Wisconsin DNR announces Lake Trout open season

By Eric Fischer


A recent population spike will allow Wisconsin anglers to take home more trophy fish this summer following a Wisconsin DNR rule change. The new rule change allows anglers to now catch five Lake Trout on Lake Michigan instead of the previous bag limit of two. Wisconsin Conservation Warden Jordan Resop says the new bag limit will include a multi-year open season.

Resop reminds those fishing on the Great Lakes and Green Bay to carry the paper copy of their license. To purchase a license, as well check regulations you can visit the DNR Website at the link on this story.

Record setting opening night for The Hill Raceway and 5/25 results

By Chad Welch

Earlier this month The Hill opened its season with one of its best nights ever with over 540 people in the stands and a record 79 cars. Such popularity may be attributed to owner Martin Kelsey's goals for The Hill. Kelsey's goal is simply to have a fun track to race at and bring drivers back year after year. A variety of promotions also keep fans coming back. Kelsey says a recent partnership created a fan favorite.

Each race Kelsey says the PKS3 race group is excited to add a new wrinkle to racing in Door County.



Results from 5/25 via The Hill Raceway Facebook.


(Sturgeon Bay, WI – 5/25/2018)

A last corner, last lap pass, propelled Billy LeMieux to his first Stock Car feature win of the season Friday night at The Hill Raceway in Sturgeon Bay.

Joining LeMieux in victory lane on the night were Jeff Vlies in the Sport Mods, Ford Malvitz in the Street Stocks, TJ Everard in the Bombers and Dan Lambert in the visiting Vintage Modified class.

After missing the feature on opening night, LeMieux found himself with a prime front row starting spot for Friday's main event. He quickly parlayed that into a comfortable advantage as several veteran racers tried to sort out the second spot behind him.

Former champions Dave Bouche, Rod Snellenberger and Larry Karcz, Jr were in the mix, along with Jeremy Anschutz, Brett Wenzel and Luke Lemmens. A caution with six laps to go changed the complexion of the race, erasing LeMieux's advantage.

Lemmens and Bouche comprised the second row as racing resumed. Lemmens, back in a Stock Car after several seasons racing Modifieds, took control of the spot and moved in on LeMieux.

Lemmens closed on the outside, and over the course of the final laps began to edge slightly ahead of LeMieux at the scoring line.

But LeMieux held firm on the bottom line, and when Lemmens slipped a bit on the last turn, he powered by to take the checkered by less than a car length.

The victory was his 8th in the Stock Car class and 37th in total at the Sturgeon Bay track, tying him with Benji LaCrosse for 5th on the all-time win list.

Following Lemmens to the line were Bouche, Snellenberger, Wenzel and Anschutz in close order.

Vlies' Sport Mod feature win followed a different script as the returning veteran proved to be unstoppable on the night.

He used an inside move on Mike Plate on the third lap to take control, and despite one restart, was never seriously challenged.

Former champ Chris Budzban secured second with three laps to go and gave chase, but it was too little too late.

Tom Stark and Ryan LeMieux placed third and fourth respectively, giving each their second straight top four finish on the year. Jarred VanLaanen recorded a season best fifth.

Vlies, a returning veteran, had registered wins in the past in the Street Stocks, Stock Cars and Sport Mods prior to stepping away from active racing. Friday night was his first in the Sport Mod class since July 17th, 2010.

Like LeMieux would do later in the night, Malvitz fought back after losing the lead to Dave DeGrave to notch his first feature win of the season, and first in the Street Stock class.

He took the lead from Nikki Carter on a restart on lap four. A good match developed up front as Kevin Luedtke moved in to challenge, eventually joined by DeGrave.

Luedtke kept the pressure on from the low line until he looped from contention with four laps to go bringing out a caution.

DeGrave took up the chase on the restart, but found himself battling for position on the track with Ed Anschutz who was fighting to get a lap back after an early pit lane session under green cost him three laps.

A second restart with two go reset the order, with Anschutz clearing the lead duo to regain a lap. Behind him, DeGrave and Malvitz raced side by side, with DeGrave seeming to take control.

But a last corner surge by Malvitz allowed him to squeeze by at the stripe. DeGrave settled for second, retaining the division point lead in the process.

Luedtke quickly fought back through the field to finish third, followed by John Hill and Nathan Delsart in the top five.

No doubts in the Bomber class as TJ Everard led every lap in route to his first win of the season. Kyle Jorgenson raced to second followed by opening night winner DJ Jorgenson, Brian Johnson and Kameron Jorgenson.

The next race on The Hill Raceway's schedule is Sunday, June 10th, with the Raceway's four divisions back in action.

The race is the first leg in a dual-event day that will culminated with an evening show at the Outagamie Speedway in Seymour; racing in Sturgeon Bay in the afternoon and Seymour at night.

The first green flag will fly at The Hill at 12:00 Noon.

The Hill Raceway is located at the John Miles Fair Park on Sturgeon Bay's east side. Follow the track on Facebook for news and updates.

Hit Parade at Miller Park

By Brett Kinnard


The Milwaukee Brewers played host to the New York Mets Saturday afternoon at Miller Park. Chase Anderson started on the bump for Milwaukee and got off to a shaky start in the first inning allowing three runs off of three hits. Led by a Hernàn Pèrez two-run double in the bottom half of the inning, the Brewers managed to knot it up at three after the first.

The Mets fired back with a solo shot in both the top of the second and third inning to take a 5-3 lead. In the bottom of the third Jesùs Aguilar hit solo shot himself to get the rally going in the inning. Followed by a Tyler Saladino RBI single to make it a tie ballgame after three innings.

The rally continued into the fourth and fifth innings for Milwaukee as the bats stayed hot. Christian Yelich had an RBI triple in the fourth and came back with a two-RBI double in the fifth to put the Brewers out in front. In his first game for Milwaukee, Erik Kratz hit a solo shot in front of the home crowd to cap off the fifth inning rally. After five innings the lead was run out to 10-6.

The hit parade continued in the seventh as the Brewers batted around the lineup in the inning. Lorenzo Cain had two doubles in the inning and scored on one of them. Domingo Santana had a two-RBI pinch hit double as well. Milwaukee hung seven runs in the seventh to put the game out of reach.

The final score ended up being a lopsided 17-6 win for the Brewers. The fans got more than their money's worth out of this one. Milwaukee pushes their record to thirteen games over .500 for the first time since 2014. They will look to close out the series tomorrow at 1:10. Jhoulys Chacin will take the mound for the Brewers.

300 Miles of Shoreline:  Another Fun Year of Kayaking and Kayak Fishing in Door County!

By Bill Schultz




It's Memorial Day Weekend, the kick-off to summer.  I'm looking forward to another season of kayak and kayak fishing reports for Door County Daily News.  I want to start by reminding all of you kayakers that the air temps may be in the 70's and 80's, but, water temps on Green Bay and Lake Michigan are still cold, so, be sure to never go out in your kayak without wearing your Personal Flotation Device (PFD), and, if out alone, let someone know where you are and when you plan to be back.


This season I'll again be talking about great places to launch your kayak, different types of fishing kayaks, paddles, chasing those big Door County smallmouth bass, kayak fishing gear and more.  Speaking of those big smallies, this is a great time of year to get out on Green Bay and Lake Michigan with many fish in shallower due to spawning activities. One of the major reasons we have such an outstanding smallmouth bass fishery is due to so many anglers understanding that practicing catch and release with this wonderful fish is the only way to keep the fishery strong.  If you catch a big smallie, take a quick picture and then "Free the Fighter".


Also, part of the spawning process is for male bass to make the bed where the female lays the eggs, and then the male guards that bed.  It's important to let that male do its job and not try to catch bass guarding those beds.


OK, now let's look at a few great locations on the peninsula for launching and then having a beautiful Memorial Day Weekend kayak outing, which is so good for the mind, body and spirit.  Using the kayak launch on Tennison Bay in Peninsula park puts you on the water for a great outing along the park's beautiful shoreline. Further north is the launch on Garrett's Bay and exploring this spectacular bay.  To the south, launching at Murphy Park and heading north or south is great fun. All these launches have plenty of parking. If you don't have a kayak, but would like to give kayaking a try, you can rent at kiosks in Ephraim across from Wilsons, the Sister Bay Beach and Nicolet Beach in Peninsula Park.

Have a safe and great Memorial Day Weekend and I'll look forward to giving my kayak and kayak fishing reports all summer.  And, as always, if you have questions you can email me at

Barnstormers storm past Blizzarrd Friday night

By Eric Fischer


The Green Bay Blizzard were not able to keep its momentum rolling off last week's win over Nebraska, losing to the league-leading Iowa Barnstormers 41-14.  The Blizzard were shut out in the first half, going into the break trailing 15-0.  Iowa came out strong to start the second half, scoring once again before Green Bay was able to get on the board following a Bryan Hicks touchdown pass to Chris Malott.  Iowa kept the pressure on, scoring on back to back drives.  Green Bay scored late in the game with a Hicks pass to Zac Richardson.  Green Bay falls to 2-9 on the season.

Brewers win with a walk off Friday night

By Eric Fischer


The Milwaukee Brewers remain the best team in the National League following another late-inning win on Friday, defeating the New York Mets 4-3 in extra innings.  Travis Shaw had a huge night for the Brewers, tallying 3 RBI on 3 hits including a home run of Mets ace Noah Syndergaard in the second, and the game-winning walk with the bases loaded.  The early homer gave Milwaukee a 1-0 lead in the second, but it was short-lived as Amed Rosario took Junior Guerra deep in the top of the 3rd inning to tie the game.  Christian Yelich continued his hot hitting ways with an RBI single to score Lorenzo Cain in the bottom of the 3rd to give Milwaukee the lead once again.  Travis Shaw padded the lead later in the inning with an RBI single of his own to score Yelich giving Milwaukee a 3-1 lead.  New York inched back in the game in the top of the 4th, following a Michael Conforto home run to put the Mets within one run, 3-2.  Following four straight half innings of scoring, both teams slowed down, until the 9th when newly acquired utility man Jose Bautista singled off Corey Knebel to tie the game, giving Knebel a blown save.  In the bottom of the 10th, Eric Sogard, who was called back up to the MLB squad earlier Friday, hit a one-out single to start the rally.  Lorenzo Cain flew out, setting the stage for Christian Yelich who came up with one of his biggest hits as a Brewer, doubling to right field to advance Sogard to third.  Hernan Perez came off the bench and drew a walk to load the bases for Travis Shaw, who walked with the bases loaded to win the game.  Jeremy Jeffress earned the win, pitching 1.1 innings following the Knebel blown save, dancing out of danger once again after inheriting base runners, followed by a near perfect 10th inning.  Milwaukee and New York square off in the third game of the four-game series with Chase Anderson on the mound.  First pitch is scheduled for 3:10 pm.

Sturgeon Bay Soccer Wins Packerland Conference Title

By Bob Desotelle    Dick Clark Field in Sturgeon Bay was the site of yet another classic battle between host Sturgeon Bay and Sevastopol/Gibraltar Thursday. In this game Sturgeon Bay came out strong with two goals in the first 35 minutes, but a determined Sevastopol team keep the game close with good defense going into halftime tied.  Early in the second half, Sevastopol/Gibraltar was awarded a PK, cutting the margin to one goal.  In the 70th minute, a red card on Sturgeon Bay forced the Clippers to play down a player.  Sevastopol's aggressive play pushed the Clippers defense repeatedly, but in the end Sturgeon Bay prevailed and won 2-1.


"This was a classic match for our teams.  I was impressed with the determination Sevastopol demonstrated tonight.  They are a really tough team.  However, our defense has been the backbone of our team all year.  They have surrendered only three goals in conference this season and playing down a player tonight showed me their toughness yet again.  When we play New Holstein in our Regional match next Thursday, they will certainly be tested.  Our center backs, Gracen Spritka and Caitlyn Smith were outstanding all night.  They worked tirelessly with Keeper McKenna Gibson and allowed only 3 shots on goal.  They were supported by Holding Mid Fielders Ella Pinkert and Georgia Feldman who controlled the goal scoring area.  Georgia was playing on a bad ankle and turned up the  heat late In the game to help seal the win.  She is a very tough and talented player.  Finally, both our goals were scored by freshmen tonight.  Carlie Wodack and Miranda Olson scored in the first half to give the Clippers their first Conference Championship in probably five years.  Super proud of every player's effort tonight.  To win with 10 players was quite an accomplishment."  The win puts Sturgeon Bay at (5-0) in the Packerland Conference.  Sturgeon Bay plays its final home game of the year next Tuesday against NEW.

Sturgeon Bay's Anna Fischer scored in the 61st minute to give visiting Sturgeon Bay a 1-0 lead to open scoring on the night.  In the 75th minute, Anna Fischer scored a PK to finish scoring for the night.  Keeper McKenna Gibson had 6 saves for Sturgeon Bay and Green Bay East's Guadalupe Trevina had 5.  Sturgeon Bay outshot Green Bay East 6 to 5.  "We struggled the entire first half to adjust to playing on turf (it was Sturgeon Bays first game on turf this season), but settled in during the second half and started organizing our attacks better.  Maddy Starr's pass to Anna on the first goal was a beauty and Anna beat two defender to score.  10 minutes later that duo connected again resulting in a PK after a foul in the box.  This was a nice win for our team".  Sturgeon Bay plays Sevastopol/Gibraltar Thursday in a conference match up.  Sturgeon Bay improves to 6-2-3 on the season with this win.

Sturgeon Bay Softball Opens Regional Tournament With a Win

By Pat Blizel    The Sturgeon Bay Softball team opened tournament with a regional quarterfinal win over Kiel 12-2 in six innings at PBI Field on Tuesday night in WIAA Division 3 Softball. The Clippers will travel to Valders to take on the Vikings at 4:30 on Wednesday, May 23rd.

Jimmy Graham The Most Targeted During Tuesday OTA

By Nick Freimuth    Veteran tight end Jimmy Graham has been a regular in the Pro Bowl (5x) during his nine year NFL career. The aging tight end (31)  is much closer to the end of his career than the beginning and some worry he may not have much left in the tank. If Tuesday's open OTA is any indication that is far from the truth. Graham was the most impressive receiving threat by far. Not only did he impress but he was the most targeted during team reps by Aaron Rodgers, Brett Hundley and DeShone Kizer.


Wearing number 80, Graham gives Packers quarterbacks a big body over the middle. The former Seahawk and  Saint showed he could still battle between the hashes Tuesday. It was a no contact day, but his hands looked as sure as any on the field. Late in the practice Graham shot up the right sideline and showcased his speed blazing past a linebacker dropping in coverage to score a touchdown.


The other takeaway from Tuesday's OTA was the inactive players due to injury. The list was full of likely starters like Clay Matthews, Tramon WIlliams, Lane Taylor, Bryan Bulaga and Davante Adams.

Brewers Hit Three Homers in Win  

By Brett Kinnard   The Milwaukee Brewers beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-2 last night. Chase Anderson started on the bump and went six innings strong only giving up two earned runs. It was Corey Knebel that came in to shut the door on the Diamondbacks in the ninth.

The Brewers brought the bats for this game as they homered three times off of former Brewer Zach Greinke. It was Travis Shaw, Lorenzo Cain, and Domingo Santana all going deep to give the team a little wiggle room.

The Brewers will now continue the series against Arizona tonight at 6:40. Jhoulys Chacin will take the mound for Milwaukee.

Cal Ripken Baseball Played Through The Rain Monday

By Travis Grooters    Bay Ship won its second game in a row 14-8 over the Kiwanis Monday afternoon.  There were lots of runs scored in the rain as pitchers from both teams struggled with control in the wet conditions. As the weather improved, pitchers were able to settle in. All hitters from Bay Ship reached base safely at least once. Leaders included: Vance DeKeyser - 1x1 with a single, RBI, and four runs scored with some smart and aggressive base running; Tyler Grooters - 3x4 with five RBI. Pitchers: - Caden LeMieux (WP) settled in after a tough first inning in the rain to throw 2 2/3 innings. -Blake Guilette had excellent control through 2 1/3 innings in relief. -Tyler Plizak closed out the game.


The Lions topped Nicolet Bank 7-3. Curt Meyer and Frankie DeYoung pitched in the win. Leading hitters included Curt Meyer, Braden Evers, Jerik Valley, Jonathon Ahlswede and Frankie DeYoung.

Green Bay Blizzard defeat Nebraska Danger 31-20

By Eric Fischer


The Green Bay Blizzard won its second game in three weeks Friday night, defeating the Nebraska Danger 31-20 in Indoor Football League action.  On the final play before halftime, Green Bay was trailing 20-7 when quarterback Bryan Hicks launched a Hail Mary that Andre McDonald hauled in for a 45-yard touchdown that seemed to swing the momentum towards Green Bay.  The PAT was good, and the Blizzard went into halftime down six, 20-14.  Early in the third quarter, Hicks found McDonald again, this time for a 23-yard touchdown which gave Green Bay a 21-20 lead that it would never surrender.  Late in the third, Hicks found McDonald once again for a 21-yard touchdown to put the Blizzard up 28-20.  A defensive struggle saw a nearly scoreless 4th quarter until kicker Jordan Endries hit a 35-yard field goal with just 26 seconds remaining to seal the game.  Hicks finished the game 10-23 with 168 yards and three touchdowns, all going to Andre McDonald.  Running back and defensive back BJ Hill also found the end zone with 20 carries for 76 yards and the touchdown.  The Blizzard are back in action Friday, May 25th when they travel to Iowa to play the Barnstormers.

Brewers take first place back on Friday night with 8-3 win

By Eric Fischer


The Milwaukee Brewers took back control of the NL Central on Friday evening, following an 8-3 win against the Minnesota Twins.  The Brewers offense continued its hot streak tallying 15 hits and three home runs in the win.  In his first at-bat since a clutch Opening Day pinch-hit double Ji-Man Choi crushed his first home run of the season to give Milwaukee a 1-0 lead in the second inning.  Ironically, it was Choi's first MLB home run since July 7th, 2017 when he was playing for the Yankees against the Milwaukee Brewers.  Jesus Aguilar continued his power surge as well, leaving the yard twice in the game, with a two-run shot in the 3rd inning, and a solo homer in the 7th.  Among the 15 hits, every Brewer in the lineup notched at least one hit, led by Aguilar and Jonathan Villar each going 3-4.  Milwaukee pitching continued to impress, with Brent Suter having one of his better performances of the 2018 season, pitching 5.2 innings, allowing 1 run on 5 hits and striking out 6.  Jeremy Jeffress remains virtually untouchable, allowing only 1 hit in 1.1 innings from the bullpen, lowering his ERA to 0.38 this season.  Corey Knebel tossed a scoreless 9th in a non-save opportunity, striking out 2.  The Brewers and Twins continue the series Saturday when Freddy Peralta makes his second career start, coming off a phenomenal Mother's Day performance when he struck out 13 batters and didn't allow a hit through 5.1 innings.

7.67 Pound Bass The Big Catch Of SBOBT Opening Day

By Nick Freimuth   An average of 5.83 pounds per fish on a bag of five fish has recent FLW Tournament champion Korey Sprengel and his fishing partner Adam Neu atop the leader board after opening day of the 28th annual Sturgeon Bay Open Bass Tournament. After netting a reported $89,000 cash and prize payout two weeks ago, Sprengel is at it again. The walleye angler is proving he knows a thing or two about small mouth bass as well.

Sprengel's close friend Mark Courts and Scott Walsch are right on their heels with a total day-one weight of 28.76 pounds. Kewaunee's Jason Stangel and John Ullmer round out the day one podium with a total weight of 28.65 pounds. Everyone knows that its not who finishes atop the leader board Friday, its who's on top tomorrow afternoon.


Friday saw a remarkable seven fish right at or above seven pounds. In comparison, two different tournaments were held last weekend and a total of three seven pound fish were caught. The top six teams are separated by a pound or less. The winners will go home with a really nice check and a brand new Z518 Ranger boat equipped with the Wisconsin premiere Mercury 4-stroke V6 200 HP motor. Anglers will hit the water again tomorrow at 7:00 AM with weigh-ins beginning at 3:00 PM.


Kids Day at the SBOBT will begin at 11:00 AM and run until 2:30 PM Saturday. There is NO COST for kids day and children will be treated by a wide array of games, activities and prizes.


Here is a look at the leader board heading into day two:

Clippers Baseball Tops N.E.W. To Set Up Conference Championship Bid

By John Berns   With Memorial Field as the setting on Thursday, Sturgeon Bay took apart New Lutheran 14-4 in a baseball game which was settled in five innings.

Sturgeon Bay Soccer Wins Nail Biter

By Bob Desotelle    Mid fielder Anna Fischer scored in the 73rd minute to give visiting Sturgeon Bay a 1-0 win in Kewaunee.  Although Sturgeon Bay outshot Kewaunee 21-2, a nasty North wind made the game unpredictable with every bounce of the ball.  With the win Sturgeon Bay remains undefeated in the Packerland Conference at 4-0.  "We struggled in the midfield the entire first half.  Our first touch was tough as the field was very rough and the wind just pushed the ball to the South with every pass.  We hit the pipe twice and had some very good looks, but failed to score.  In the second half, we settled down and played more efficiently into the wind.  Kewaunee had an excellent breakaway attempt with their star forward Kembra Browne, but Keeper McKenna Gibson made an outstanding save to keep the score even.  Despite the wind, I liked the way our team possessed the ball and how they worked together.  They have improved considerably over this short season.  We host Random Lake tomorrow night at 7:00 pm."

In Tuesday night Packerland Conference action on 105.1 WSBW, the Peshtigo Bulldogs took advantage of several Gibraltar errors en route to a 5-1 loss in Game 1 of a doubleheader.  The Vikings struck first when Brandon Stillman reached on a hit-by-pitch and scored in the third inning to give Gibraltar a 1-0 lead.  The lead was short lived as in the bottom half of the third, Peshtigo scored twice, after a walk and two errors, to give the Bulldogs a lead that it would not lose.  Gibraltar was not without opportunity as it had runners on 1st and 2nd base with one out in both the fourth and fifth innings but could not capitalize.  Offensively, the Vikings were led by Spencer Krause and Alex Laughlin who each reached base safely twice, Krause having a single and reaching on a fielder's choice and Laughlin walking twice.  Laughlin took the loss on the mound, throwing six innings with six strikeouts.  Laughlin didn't have much help behind him, as the Vikings committed seven errors.  With the win, Peshtigo was able to clinch a share of the Packerland Conference championship.

Clippers Soccer Riding High This Spring

By Bob Desotelle    Sturgeon Bay traveled to Green Bay Thursday and topped N.E.W. Lutheran 5-1 on a water soaked field.  This game got started quickly with Sturgeon Bay's Maddy Starr scoring in the 4th minute assisted by Anna Fischer.  NEW responded in the 16th minute tying the game, but that would prove to be the only goal for the Blazers.  The "Beckham Sisters" (Maddy Starr and Anna Fischer) took over the game scoring four more goals giving Sturgeon Bay a 5-1 win and a (3-0) conference record.


This game was actually pretty even for the first 20 minutes or so.  N.E.W. was able to win some 50/50 balls in the middle of the field and they transitioned quickly and got a few decent shots on goal besides their goal.  As the half progressed, The Clippers took over the middle of the field and began possessing the ball more consistently which led to two more goals.  The last goal was a back breaker for NEW.  Sturgeon Bay's Carlie Wodack laced a nasty cross to the back post that Anna Fischer scored on with 21 seconds left in the half.  With that gained momentum, the Clippers never looked back scoring two unanswered goals in the final half.


This game showed we are improving.  Every player contributed.  We moved the ball purposefully with good passing and stayed connected through communication.  Our players demonstrated they understand how to succeed using our system of play.  The coaches were very pleased with the team after this win.  Maddy Starr scored four goals and Anna Fischer scored one goal.  Anna Fischer, Claire Tellstrom and Ella "The Destroyer" Pinkert all assisted on goals.   Keeper McKenna Gibson had four saves and the Clippers tallied 24 shots on goal.  Sturgeon Bay plays Kewaunee at home next Thursday at 4:30 PM.

Clippers Soccer Logs Another Tie

By Bob Desotelle   For a second night, the Sturgeon Bay Girls Soccer Team found a way to tie with yet another larger school.  Miranda Olson dropped a beautiful pass to midfielder Claire Tellstrom who laced a drive into the Fox Valley Lutheran goal in the 31st minute.  FVL responded with a PK in the 58th minute tying the game, but neither team could find that second goal.  Keeper McKenna Gibson had 12 saves and some were spectacular.  FVL had seven saves.

"On another windy night our girls found a way to deny a talented FVL team a win.  It was not a pretty game, but credit must be given as physical play and determination kept SB in this one.  Playing to a tie against two bigger schools this week has been a great preparation for our conference game against Sevastopol/Gibraltar Thursday night."


Sevastopol beat Manitowoc Roncalli 2-0.
