Packers putting in final preparations for Cardinals

By Nate LoCascio

 

Under Head Coach Mike McCarthy, the Packers are 35-16 in the month of December (since 2006), a .686 winning percentage that ranks No. 3 in the NFL over that span. Dating back to 2006, Green Bay is 22-4 at home in the month of December, ranking No. 2 in the NFL with a winning percentage of .846, according to pro-football-reference.com. With Aaron Rodgers as the starter, the Packers are 24-10 in the month of December, including 16-1 at home, with the only loss coming in 2008 (according to Sportradar). Sunday’s noon kickoff from Lambeau Field will feature two teams performing below expectations this season.

By Nick Freimuth

 

Southern Door beat Oconto Thursday night 46-38 in Packerland Conference girls basketball. The Eagles had three players score 12 or more points including Grace LeGrave (12), Hailey Shimon (12) and Tehya Bertrand (13). The Blue Devils led 23-22 at halftime but Southern Door soared back in the second half outscoring Oconto 24-15 in the second half. Maria Allen led Oconto with 13 points.

Kewaunee wrestling outlasts Green Bay United 42-40

By Tim Kowols

 

Kewaunee’s Paul Wery gave up about 50 pounds and a few inches to Green Bay United’s Isaac Klarkowski, but he did not give up the pin in the Storm’s 42-40 victory Thursday night. After finding itself in an early 18-0 hole, the Storm rattled off three straight pins by Logan Steinhorst, Jack Severin, and Nathan VanGoethem. Dylan Steinhorst’s first period pin would be the last points the Storm would score on its own, securing three forfeits en route to the final match. Wery eventually lost to Klarkowski 16-4, but his ability to get out of pinning combination kept the damage limited to just a major decision, leaving the Green Bay United two points of shy of potentially winning the match due to tiebreakers. Kewaunee is back in action on Saturday at the Papermaker Invitational in Kimberly.

 

106: Nolan Jerde GB pinned Elena Lewis 1:52
113: Blake McCurrie GB won by forfeit
120: Dylan Mourea GB pinned Gina Augustian 1:15

Rough night for Green Bay women's basketball, volleyball

By Tim Kowols

 

Faced with tough opponents on the road, both the Green Bay women’s basketball and volleyball teams lost in their Thursday night action.

 

In Madison, the Phoenix volleyball team lost in straight sets to nationally sixth-seeded Wisconsin, 25-9, 27-25, and 25-15. Alexandra Zakutney led the Phoenix with 13 kills while Ashley Sledge chipped in four blocks. The Phoenix ultimately could not overcome its 26 errors in the program’s first NCAA appearance since 2003.

 

In Brookings, South Dakota the Phoenix women’s basketball team could dig itself out of 34-12 1st half deficit en route to a 77-47 loss to the South Dakota State Jackrabbits. Laken James and Lyndsey Robson led the Phoenix with the 11 points apiece, but could not overcome a Jackrabbits defense that held them to less than 30 percent shooting from the field. The Phoenix continue their South Dakota road trip against the state’s flagship university on Saturday.

Luxemburg-Casco wrestling looks to repeat state championship run

By Connor Harbit

 

Less than a year ago, the Luxemburg-Casco wrestling team managed to reach the pinnacle of success with a thrilling 30-28 victory over Ellsworth in the finals of the state championship. However, the Spartans are not resting for a second as they look to repeat that accomplishment and win their fourth state championship in seven years. The team is returning several key participants from last season, including several parts of a strong lightweight core that was essential to taking home the title. That core will include senior Bryce Bosman, a three-time state champion at the individual level. He explained how having so many state-level wrestlers on one team has helped him improve over his time at Luxemburg-Casco.

 

 

 

 

Perhaps also helping out the Spartans is the overall level of competition they face within their own conference. Head coach Chas Treml says he and the other coaches of the Northeastern Conference agree that there might not be better wrestling anywhere else in the state.

 

 

 

 

The Spartans will begin their 2018-2019 season Thursday with a dual meet against conference foe Wrightstown. They will also be in action this weekend when they host Bay Port, Green Bay Preble, and Sheboygan Falls.

Clutch three-pointer in final few seconds lifts Bucks over Chicago

By Connor Harbit

 

It wasn’t as pretty as Milwaukee fans would have liked, but the Bucks sent them home happy anyway with a 116-113 win over the Chicago Bulls. The game was deadlocked for much of the first half, with Chicago leading by 10 after the first quarter thanks to some early turnovers. That lead would evaporate in the second quarter, however, as it did not take long for the Bucks to bounce back and take a 63-62 lead into the half. The second half wasn’t much different in regards to keeping things close, as Milwaukee was only able to extend its lead two more points in the third quarter. After a fourth quarter in which it seemed that both teams would always have an answer for the other, Milwaukee forward Khris Middleton nailed a three-pointer with just five seconds remaining to take home the victory.

 

The Bucks (15-6) were led by Giannis Antetokoumpo with 36 points and Malcolm Brogdon had 24. Chicago guard Zach LaVine led the Bulls (5-17) with 24 points of his own. Milwaukee will next take a couple days off before heading east for a meeting with the New York Knicks.

Kewaunee, Luxemburg-Casco hit the mats for season's first wrestling duals

By Tim Kowols

 

The championship layoff is over for two local teams as the high school wrestling season kicks off this weekend.

 

The defending Packerland Conference champion Kewaunee Storm hits the road Thursday evening for its first dual meet of the season against Green Bay West. The Storm will likely be led by Packerland Conference wrestler of the year Jack Severin, who took 5th in last season’s individual state tournament. Kewaunee hopes to repeat its team success from last year after winning several tournaments along the way to a berth to the WIAA Team Sectional.

 

The state champion Luxemburg-Casco Spartans wrestling team also gets underway Thursday evening with a dual meet at conference rival Wrightstown. The Spartans return a number of its lightweight wrestlers crucial to its title run in Madison last year, including three-time state champion Bryce Bosman.

 

Both dual meets begin at 6:30 p.m. with junior varsity matches preceding the varsity meet.

 

The pair of meets kicks off a busy weekend of wrestling for area teams. See below for Saturday’s schedule:

 

LUXEMBURG-CASCO: Triple dual at home Saturday against Bay Port, Green Bay Preble, and Sheboygan Falls
STURGEON BAY/SEVASTOPOL: Papermaker Invitational at Kimberly

Packers sign two new players to practice squad

By Nate LoCascio

 

The Green Bay Packers signed safety Eddie Pleasant and fullbackMalcolm Johnson to the practice squad today. The team released linebacker Korey Toomer and placed guard Anthony Coyle on the practice squad; injured list. The transactions were announced Wednesday by General Manager Brian Gutekunst.

 

Pleasant (5-10, 210) originally signed with the Houston Texans as an undrafted rookie free agent out of the University of Oregon in 2012. In six seasons with the Texans (2012-17), he played in 78 regular-season games with one start, recording 86 tackles (67 solo), four QB hits, two tackles for a loss, 2.5 sacks, three interceptions, 17 passes defensed, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery on defense. Pleasant added 30 tackles on special teams.  He also appeared in five postseason contests for Houston. In 2018, Pleasant was in training camp with the New England Patriots and spent a short time during the regular season with the Arizona Cardinals, appearing in one game. He will wear No. 35 for the Packers.

 

Johnson, a 6-foot-1, 231-pound third-year player out of Mississippi State, was originally selected in the sixth round (No. 195 overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns. He played in 19 games with six starts in two seasons with the Browns (2015-16), hauling in nine receptions for 59 yards (6.6 avg.) and carrying the ball once for a gain of 2 yards. After being released by the Browns on Oct. 24, 2016, Johnson spent some time on the Seattle Seahawks’ practice squad. In 2018, he was with the San Francisco 49ers in the offseason and training camp. Johnson played tight end in college, starting 23 of 45 games played, before converting to fullback in the NFL. He will wear No. 46 for the Packers.

On paper Packers should win Sunday

By Nate LoCascio

 

The (4-6-1) Green Bay Packers host the (2-9) Arizona Cardinals Sunday at Lambeau Field and are expected to be heavy favorites. It is only the second time the Cardinals have played at Lambeau Field in December (Dec. 21, 1969). The Packers are 28-9 all-time at home against the Cardinals during the regular and postseason, including wins in each of the last nine. Green Bay is 44-23-4 against Arizona during the regular season.

 

Sunday may be a high scoring affair. The Packers have scored 24-plus points in seven of the last eight home games against the Cardinals, including eclipsing 30 points five times. Arizona last played at Green Bay during the regular season in 2012, a 31-17 Packers victory.

Packers make roster move

By Nate LoCascio

 

The Green Bay Packers signed offensive tackle Gerhard de Beer to the practice squad. The transaction was announced Tuesday by General Manager Brian Gutekunst.

After being released by the Bills on Sept. 1, he spent a short time on Buffalo’s practice squad. At Arizona, de Beer played in 23 games and blocked for a rushing offense that ranked No. 3 in the nation with an average of 309.3 yards per game in 2017. He will wear No. 72 for the Packers.

Gibraltar girls' basketball coach wants to compete for a conference championship

By Connor Harbit

 

Following a 15-8 season a year ago, Gibraltar girls’ basketball head coach Josh Kropuenske views his Vikings as one of the top four teams in the Packerland Conference. Coming off a third-place finish in conference play a year ago behind Kewaunee and Southern Door, Kropuenske believes having plenty of returning letter winners and a new up-tempo style of defense will give the Vikings the push they need toward the top of the standings.

 

 

 

 

In addition to Gibraltar, Kropuenske tagged Southern Door, Kewaunee, and Algoma as teams to watch out for in the Packerland Conference this year. The Vikings currently sit at 1-2 on the season, with losses to Algoma and Hilbert but a commanding 60-12 victory over Sturgeon Bay. They will next take to the court on December 1st when they welcome Mishicot to Gibraltar.

Potential Pro Bowler Kenny Clark impresses on Jim Olson Motors Red Zone

By Nick Freimuth

 

Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Kenny Clark is having the best season of his NFL career. Clark has logged six sacks this season, a career high. According to Pro Football Focus, the UCLA product has seen his overall grades on performance raise from a 74.8 his rookie season to 87.8 last year to 90.1 this season. Add to that his pass rush snaps per pressure climbing from 17.9 in 2016 to 10.5 in 2017 all the way down to 8.9 in 2018. Kenny Clark deserves a spot in the Pro Bowl this year!

 

The third-year pro took his Monday night to spend with a bunch of great kids from St. Peters Lutheran School on the Jim Olson Motors Red Zone. The Storm was named the WRLU Team of the Week for their commitment in the classroom and on the sporting fields. The 90-minute sports talk show held at Jim Olson Ford was filled with smiling student-athletes, coaches and parents. The show will resume next Monday night when the Striver’s Gymnastics Team will appear as the WRLU Team of the Week from 5:30 PM – 7:00 PM live on 104.1 FM.

By Connor Harbit

 

As the 2018-2019 basketball season gets underway, Gibraltar boys head basketball coach Justin Burress is pleased with the amount of leadership his team has shown. With seven seniors on this year’s roster, Burress believes that the team has developed into a mature squad that should compete in the Packerland Conference this year. Following a successful summer tournament circuit, Burress believes the boys are more ready than ever to get onto the court.

 

 

 

 

After two non-conference games to begin the season, Gibraltar will open up Packerland conference play with a meeting against Sturgeon Bay at home November 30th. The Clippers took both meetings last year.

By Connor Harbit

 

Sturgeon Bay/Sevastapol wrestling head coach Trevor Hasenjager is confident his 2018-19 team can repeat the success it had a year ago. The combined team finished second in the conference and had several successful wrestlers across all weight categories. With several returning wrestlers to the squad, the team will be looking to improve upon last year’s performances. Hasenjager, a former standout wrestler at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside who has been with the team since 2010, said that while there are a few holes in the lineup this year, he is confident that there the numbers will be there in the future.

 

 

 

 

Some names Hasenjager mentioned as being potential standouts for this year include Triston Beauchamp at 145 and Nick West in the heavyweight division. The team attends its first meet on Saturday as they take part in the Kimberly Papermaker Invitational.

The finale was no exception. A packed Wave Pointe was the host of this years finale. The show in combination with Whitetails Unlimited and Door County Fish Farm and Game raffled off 10 guns.

Packers pounded by Vikings

By Nick Freimuth

 

The Packers (4-6-1) are still winless on the road this season in six tries (eight if you include the pre-season).

His 17/28 performance included 198 yards and just one touchdown. Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins finished 29/38 for 342 yards and three touchdowns. His QB rating was 75.5.

 

Davante Adams was the top receiver for ‘The Pack’ with five catches for 69 yards and a touchdown. Aaron Jones averaged 4.2 yards per carry tallying 72 yards on 17 touches.

 

Adam Thielen led Minnesota with eight catches for 125 yards and a touchdown. Stefon Diggs had eight receptions for 77 yards and a touchdown.

By Nick Freimuth

 

Sevastopol fell to Oconto 60-51 in varsity girls basketball Tuesday. The Pioneers led 27-21 at halftime but saw that lead evaporate in the second half. Zoe Kuehn scored an impressive 20 points to lead Sevastopol in one of the single-game high scoring efforts in the past decade. Amber Roalkvan added 13 points in the loss.

 

Algoma fell hard to Green Bay West 76-24 in a non-conference game. The Wolves are working out the early season kinks in preparation for what should be a very close race in the Packerland this season. Coach Mark Zastrow always seems to get the most out of the talent he has on the court every year.

 

Southern Door is proving they might be the team to beat again this year in the conference. The Eagles soared past N.E.W. Lutheran 65-51. Hailey Shimon scored a game-high 24 points to lead the way for Southern Door. Tehya Bertrand added 15 points in the victory. N.E.W. was led by Afton Wagner with 14 points and Grace Scholtz with 13 points.

Packers still in the hunt for the NFC North crown

By Nick Freimuth

 

The Chicago Bears stand alone atop the NFC North following their 25-20 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday Night Football. Behind the Saints nine-game winning streak, Chicago is the second hottest team in the NFC with four straight wins. The NFC North is far from decided however as you’ll see in the standings below. Only three games separate the first and last place teams in the standings. Green Bay still has games against all three divisional rivals including a Sunday night matchup in Minnesota this weekend.

 

Chicago – 7-3
Minnesota – 5-4-1
Green Bay – 4-5-1
Detroit – 4-6

Badgers edge Purdue 47-43 in triple overtime

By Terry Kovarik

 

The Purdue Boilermakers appeared ready to hand the Wisconsin Badgers their fifth loss of the season overall, and their fourth in the Big Ten West.  Purdue led 27-13 in with 9:12 left in the game when Purdue safety Brennan Thieneman picked off a Badger pass and took the ball to Wisconsin’s 32-yard line.  But Purdue safety Navon Mosley was flagged for pass interference and that returned the ball to the Badgers.  Jack Coan completed two passes for touchdowns to Danny Davis III.  That effort helped send the game into overtime.  From there Jack Coan connected with Jonathon Taylor for two touchdowns on five carries which helped propel the Badgers to a 47-43 win in West Lafayette and second place in the Big Ten West.

Girls basketball round-up: Gibraltar, Kewaunee get victories

By Tim Kowols

 

The Gibraltar Vikings and the Kewaunee Storm were able to get their seasons off on the right foot Thursday night with wins in their respective contests.

 

The Vikings were able to force 16 turnovers in their 60-12 win over host Sturgeon Bay.  Brenna Zuehlke was the leading scorer for the Clippers on a night where the Vikings defense caused fits for the home team.

 

The Storm blew past the Southern Door Eagles 48-36 in its first game of the season. One day after signing her National Letter of Intent to play basketball at Michigan Tech, Sara Dax led all scorers with 16 points for Kewaunee. Mac Tlachac chipped in 12 points in the win. Hailey Shimon led the Eagles in scoring, registering 14 points.

 

Luxemburg-Casco’s Jenna Jorgensen’s 22 points led all scorers but it was not enough to sink the Bay Port Pirates in a 66-58 loss in Suamico. Cassie Schiltz scored 14 points in her first game since signing her NLI with Green Bay on Wednesday.

 

Local action tonight includes Algoma hitting the road to face Green Bay West while Sevastopol hosts NEW Lutheran. Both games start at 7:30 p.m.

Seahawks deliver devastating loss to Packers in Seattle

By Nick Freimuth

 

Green Bay fell to (4-5-1) at CenturyLink Field after a 27-24 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Aaron Rodgers had a solid night completing 21/30 passes for 332 yards and two touchdowns. Russell Wilson was 21/31 passing for 225 yards and two touchdowns. Neither quarterback threw an interception. Green Bay allowed 173 rushing yards and gained only 48 yards on the ground.

 

It didn’t take long for the Packers to take the lead on Thursday Night Football in Seattle. A 1:07 first drive followed a Clay Matthews forced fumble on the Seahawks first play from scrimmage. Tramon Williams recovered for Green Bay on the 29 yard line and three plays later Aaron Jones found the end zone on an eight-yard touchdown run.

 

Following a Seattle field goal Aaron Rodgers connected with fourth string tight end Robert Tonyan on a 54-yard touchdown throw. Green Bay led 14-3 in the first quarter. The pace slowed in the second quarter for the Pack. Russell Wilson made up for an airmailed would-be touchdown in the first quarter by finding Doug Baldwin from six yards out to cap a 14-play drive spanning 77 yards and took 7:31 off the second quarter clock.

 

Seattle added another score at the end of the first half. The Seahawks first lead came with 3:22 left to play in quarter number two when Chris Carson walked into the endzone from one-yard out. It gave Seattle a 17-14 lead. Seattle’s lead would not last for long. Aaron Rodgers orchestrated a five play 75-yard drive leaving just :44 left on the second quarter clock and found Aaron Jones 24 yards out on a perfect pass. Green Bay took a 21-17 lead into the locker room.

 

 

The teams traded possessions throughout the third quarter before Green Bay relinquished their lead. Ed Dickson scored the game winning  15 -yard touchdown with 5:08 left to play in the game.

 

69,007 packed CenturyLink Field and a Packers fans were loud and proud throughout.

Badgers head to West Lafayette to battle Purdue

By Tim Kowols

 

The Wisconsin Badgers football team could still get at least a share of the Big Ten West division crown, but it has to go through the Purdue Boilermakers to do it when the two teams meet in West Lafayette Saturday afternoon.

 

The Badgers look to rebound after losing to Penn State last week 22-10. Key to that could be the return of offensive starters Alex Hornibrook, Taiwan Deal, and David Edward, who are all listed as questionable on this week’s injury report. If not, the Badgers will ride Heisman candidate Jonathan Taylor and hope for more improvement from backup quarterback Jack Coan.

 

Purdue’s up-and-down season continued last week after getting blown out by Minnesota 41-10. It’s the same team that scored big wins over ranked conference rivals Iowa and Ohio State earlier this season. The Boilermakers are dealing with the added distraction that its head coach Jeff Brohm could be on the way to Louisville, a rumor he denied to reporters earlier this week.

Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. from Ross-Ade Field.
