Packers legend Bart Starr dies at 85

The Green Bay Packers announced on Sunday morning that Packers legend Bart Starr passed away at the age of 85 in Birmingham, AL. He had been in failing health since suffering a serious stroke in 2014. 

 

The former quarterback played for the Packers from 1956 to 1971 and won five NFL championships. He is maybe most-known for scoring the game-winning touchdown in the "Ice Bowl" on December 31, 1967, to win the NFL Championship over the Dallas Cowboys.

 

Funeral arrangements have not yet been announced.

Maddie Prokash named Packerland Conference Player of the Year

Algoma's Maddie Prokash had a dominant year in the circle for the Wolves. She has earned the Packerland Conference Player of the Year for softball. Prokash threw seven shutouts and helped lead the Wolves to be co-conference champions. Algoma won the regional championship on Thursday shutting out Roncalli 3-0 and will take on Mishicot on the road in the sectionals on Tuesday at 5 PM. 

Trevor Reinhardt named Packerland Conference Baseball Player of the Year

Gibraltar's Trevor Reinhardt had a great season on the mound and at the plate for the Vikings.  This has earned him Packerland Conference Player of the Year. He was named to the Packerland All-Conference First Team as a pitcher and also finished second in the league in batting average at .467.

 

Reinhardt's Vikings will try to continue their season on Tuesday in the regional final at Green Bay NEW Lutheran.




Bucks playoff run ends after blowing big lead

The Milwaukee Bucks special season is over after losing game 6 and the series to the Raptors on Saturday night. After finishing the regular season with the best record in the NBA and winning 10 of their first 11 playoff games, the Bucks ended the Eastern Conference Finals on a four-game losing streak. It looked like the Bucks would advance after grabbing a 15-point lead with 2:18 left in the third quarter. The Raptors proceeded to go on a 26-3 run and held on in the final minutes to advance to play the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals. The final score was 100-94. Giannis Antetokounmpo led Milwaukee with 21 points but he struggled to get into the paint all night. Kawai Leonard again was stellar for Toronto scoring 27 points, grabbing 17 rebounds, while picking up 4 assists, 2 steals and 3 blocks.

 

Up next for the Bucks will be the NBA Draft on June 20th where they will have the 30th pick in the first round. They also have a number of key free agents including Khris Middleton and Brook Lopez.

Brewers lose second straight to Phillies

The Phillies have not been kind guests to Milwaukee in their three-game series. Christian Yelich and company have dropped the first two games of the series after losing on Saturday 7-2. Milwaukee's bats could not solve Jake Arrieta who worked eight innings only allowing two runs. Brewers starter Jhoulys Chacin struggled allowing 4 runs in 5 innings. Brewers pitching allowed four home runs on the day. It was 4-2 heading to the ninth inning but the Phillies got a two-run homer Rhys Hoskins and a solo shot from J.T. Realmuto to put the game out of reach. The bright spot for the Brewers offensively was Mike Moustakas hitting his 13th home run of the season.

 

Milwaukee will try to salvage the series by taking game three on Sunday. Brandon Woodruff is on the mound for the Brewers against Zach Eflin for the Phillies. First pitch is at 1:10 PM.

Safety first when starting our kayak/kayak fishing season

It’s Memorial Day Weekend in one of the most beautiful vacation spots in the country.  And, with over 300 miles of shoreline on Green Bay and Lake Michigan, a kayaker’s nirvana to enjoy paddling, and, for the anglers, outstanding fishing.

It’s been a cool spring, with water temperatures in many locations as cold as 50 degrees, so, when you take to the water in your kayak take precautions.  Be sure to wear your PFD, put your phone in a plastic waterproof bag, wear proper clothing in case you tip, and, be sure to tell someone where you’re launching and will be kayaking.  Also, be aware of the weather conditions.  In Door County, the wind can shift quickly making conditions dangerous.  With the big water and quick weather changes, I stay close to shore.  

Now that I’ve touched on some important safety tips, it’s time to get on the water and enjoy kayaking.  Top to bottom, there are no bad places to paddle your kayak or kayak fish in Door County, you are surrounded by beauty everywhere.  And, there are dozens of kayak and boat launches throughout the county, with many roads that dead-end at the water’s edge where you can launch, just be sure to park your vehicle off the road.

For you anglers, and especially us smallmouth bass anglers, the water will be warming, with smallies heading to the shallows to spawn.  You should have good luck from Little Sturgeon Bay all the way to Gills Rock, as well as several spots on the lakeside.  As always, I hope you catch, take a nice picture and release that smallie.  Or, as the Wisconsin Smallmouth Alliance signs say, “Free the Fighter”.  Also, please don’t try to catch smallies that are guarding a bed.  

If you are new to kayaking, there are several kayak outfitters in the county who would be happy to guide you.  And, I am always happy to answer your questions.  Just email me at kayakfishingwisconsin@gmail.com.

Soccer round-up: Late Jandu goal gives Vikineers tie with Clippers

Two county rivals ended things in a tie and Kewaunee came up just short in local soccer action Thursday.

 

Sturgeon Bay's Anna Fischer and Allison Hobbs were matched by Sevastopol/Gibraltar's Chilena Cuellar and Reetika Jandu as that game ended in a 2-2 tie.

Full recaps of these games can be found online at DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com.

Bucks drop game five 

The Milwaukee Bucks lost to the Toronto Raptors 105-99 on Thursday night. It was a pivotal home game for the Bucks in which the ball didn’t quite bounce their way. They now must win games six and seven to get out of the series. 

 

Giannis led the way with 24 points in the game. He had a tough time driving to the paint at any point with Toronto collapsing their whole defense on him. Kawhi Leonard had a monster game for Toronto scoring 35 points and hitting a couple of clutch threes down the stretch. 

 

The series will now head to Toronto for game six. Milwaukee will need to win the final two games in order to advance to the finals. Tip-off will be at 7:30 on Saturday from Toronto.

Softball round-up: Algoma, Kewaunee, Southern Door win regional titles

There was plenty of hardware from the WIAA Softball Regional Tournament finding homes in the Door peninsula Thursday after three local teams won championships Thursday.

 

It took until the top of the ninth inning before the Kewaunee Storm could break a 2-2 tie with three runs before holding off Chilton 5-4.

 

Southern Door, Kewaunee's next opponent, had to wait a little bit too as they beat Valders 3-2 in eight innings.

 

Algoma did not have to sweat in its Division 4 regional final beating Roncalli 3-0 behind the arm of Maddie Prokash.

 

Luxemburg-Casco was held down by Seymour pitching as they were shutout 7-0.

 

Full game recaps are available at DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com

Brewers out slug Reds 11-9

The Reds raced out to a 5-0 lead in the second inning against the Brewers Wednesday, but Milwaukee battled back. The Milwaukee Brewers beat the Cincinnati Reds 11-9 on Wednesday afternoon. Zach Davies started on the bump and got roughed up. He allowed six earned runs in three innings of work. Junior Guerra would eventually come in to pick up the win in relief. 

 

The bats finally came alive again in this one. Mike Moustakas had three hits on the day with one being a solo shot in the third inning. Keston Hiura also recorded his first homer inside Miller Park when he launched a solo shot of his own in the second inning. Josh Hader would come in to pick up his 12th save of the season. 

 

Milwaukee will now have another day of rest Thursday before beginning a series with the Phillies on Friday. Chase Anderson will take the mound for the Brewers Friday. First pitch will be thrown out at 7:10. 

Luxemburg-Casco soccer postpones, others play on

Area soccer teams are coming to the end of their season with just a couple matches remaining before playoffs begin next week.

Packerland Conference matchups include Sevastopol/Gibraltar hosting Sturgeon Bay at 6 p.m. and Kewaunee playing on the road against Green Bay NEW Lutheran at 4:30 p.m.

State on the line for track athletes

A trip to LaCrosse hangs in the balance Thursday afternoon when dozens of local athletes head to two sectional sites for a chance to qualify for the state meet.

 

Athletes from Sturgeon Bay, Luxemburg-Casco, Southern Door, and regional champion Kewaunee will head to Freedom for its sectional meet. Algoma, Gibraltar, and Sevastopol athletes will hope to punch their ticket to state at Princeton High School.

 

The top four in each event at the sectional meets qualify for state, but an athlete can also make it if they post one of the top 8 scores in the state on Thursday.

Gibraltar advances before baseball playoffs get underway

Before a single pitch is even thrown in this year's WIAA Baseball Playoffs, Gibraltar has already punched its ticket to the second round.

 

Officials from Gresham High Schools alerted Gibraltar athletic director Peggy Tanck earlier this week that they would be forfeiting Thursday's game. The Vikings will now keep a close eye on the NEW Lutheran/Lena-St. Thomas Academy matchup to learn where they will be playing next week.

 

Other WIAA playoff matchups scheduled for Thursday include Kewaunee heading to Southern Door, Sturgeon Bay hosting Algoma, Sevastopol traveling to Bowler, and Luxemburg-Casco playing at Denmark.

Brewers shutout by Reds

The Milwaukee Brewers lost to the Cincinnati Reds 3-0 on Tuesday night. Gio Gonzalez started on the bump for Milwaukee and had a tough go at it. He would allow three earned runs all in the first inning. From there he would settle in throwing four straight scoreless innings. It was an uphill battle at that point. 

 

The bats were nowhere to be found in this game. Lorenzo Cain had two hits in the game but never made it around to score. Keston Hiura had two hits of his own in his Miller Park debut but the team was never able to generate any runs. 

 

The two teams will now run it back for game two of the series. Zach Davies will take his turn in the rotation for Milwaukee. He will square off against Luis Castillo of the Reds. First pitch will be thrown out at 12:10.

Algoma and Southern Door advance in softball

Algoma and Southern Door came away with victories on Tuesday in WIAA Regional Semi-final action.

Raptors even the series at 2-2 with Bucks

A 120-102 Raptors win over the Bucks Tuesday night sends the Eastern Conference Finals back to Milwaukee with the series tied at two games apiece. Despite 30 points from Khris Middleton and 25 points from Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Bucks struggled mightily. 

 

A 65% performance from the free throw line was an Achilles heel for Milwaukee but not the only reason they lost game four. The Bucks committed 12 untimely turnovers and never found their rhythm. The biggest area of discrepancy was bench scoring. Toronto's three-man rotation off the bench outscored Milwaukee's bench 48-23.

 

Game five of the Eastern Conference Finals will tip-off from Fiserv Forum Thursday night at 7:30 PM.

Three solo homers and a strong outing by Brandon Woodruff helped the Milwaukee Brewers win the final game of its road trip and its series against the Atlanta Braves 3-2 in extra innings. The Brewers' Christian Yelich and the Braves' Ronald Acuna traded solo homers in the first inning before highly regarded prospect Keston Hiura hit his first major league home run in the fifth inning to give the visitors a 2-1 lead. Freddie Freeman would tie the game up in the seventh inning for the Braves on a home run before Ben Gamel returned volley in the tenth inning with a dinger of his own. Josh Hader would get revenge after blowing his third save of the year on Saturday with a pair of strikeouts to end the game.

 

The Brewers get a well-deserved day off after their ten-game road swing before taking on the Cincinnati Reds Tuesday night at Miller Park. 

 

 

Bucks fall short to Raptors in double OT

For the first time in the playoffs, the Milwaukee Bucks lost a road contest after losing to the Toronto Raptors in double overtime 118-112. It was a rare off night for Khris Middletown and Giannis Antetokounmpo, combining for just 19 points. Anteteokounmpo was able to grab a game-high 23 rebounds before fouling out in the second overtime. It was George Hill who instead led the Bucks in scoring with 24 points. The Raptors' Kawai Leonard was his usual self, leading all scorers with 36 points while also collecting nine rebounds and five assists. The game may never have gone to double overtime without Middleton, who drained a three-pointer with seconds remaining to force the extra stanza. Clutch free throws by Hill forced the second overtime, which some many players on both sides sit out due to fouling out.

 

Game four will be in Toronto Tuesday night.

Brewers lose on walk-off home run

Freddie Freeman's walk-off home run in the bottom of the 10th inning gave the Atlanta Braves a 4-3 victory over the Brewers on Saturday. Milwaukee was trailing 3-2 headed to the ninth inning when Lorenzo Cain drove home Keston Hiura with a double. Josh Hader pitched a perfect bottom of the ninth and the teams headed to extras. The Brewers were unable to put anything together offensively in the top of the 10th. Hader came back out for his second inning of work and Freeman hit the second pitch he saw out of the park.

 

The Brewers other runs scored on a two-run single in the first inning by Jesus Aguilar.

 

These two teams will play the rubber match of the series on Sunday at 12:20 PM in Atlanta.

Saturday baseball games washed out

Two Door County high school baseball games had to be canceled due to the rain on Saturday. Gibraltar was scheduled to host non-conference opponent Lourdes Academy. Sturgeon Bay had a home game against Mishicot. Neither game will be made up with the playoffs starting next week. The Vikings do not have any more regular season games and will begin their playoff run on Thursday hosting Gresham Community. The Clippers still have one regular season game left on the schedule as they will travel to Bonduel on Tuesday for a 4:30 PM first pitch. Their first regional playoff game will be on Thursday hosting Algoma.

Sturgeon Bay Open Bass Tournament 2019 decided by 24 hundredths of a pound

Their 26.57 pound day one total had Korey Sprengel and Ryan Dempsey in fourth place about a pound and a half out of first place in the 2019 Sturgeon Bay Open Bass Tournament. Day two had the walleye specialists within striking distance. Sprengel has fished the SBOBT a handful of years recently but never in a podium finish.
