Soccer preview: Packerland takes the pitch

Brewers finish off Pirates

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

 

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




Gibraltar enjoying youth movement

Losing a host of senior contributors could have doomed Gibraltar’s football team, but instead their underclassmen are stepping up. Thirteen freshmen and sophomore dot the roster with many already making meaningful contributions. In Saturday’s 50-38 victory, the Vikings forced four turnovers including an interception by Sam Lindenberg and a fumble recovery by Giuseppe Mercier. Thanks in part to some lopsided games during their current 4-1 campaign, the underclassmen are already getting meaningful playing time in all phases of the game. It is something Gibraltar head coach Mike Peck is taking pride in his depth as the season crosses the midway point.

Peck is also happy other players that do not necessarily make the score sheet as much as conference offensive leaders Alex Laughlin and Luke Steebs are quietly having good seasons. Gibraltar will host their homecoming game this Friday against Lena/St. Thomas Aquinas on 105.1 The Viking beginning at 7 p.m. with the kickoff.  

Packers remain undefeated against hapless Broncos

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


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

Sturgeon Bay boys soccer at Cedarburg Quad

Clippers soccer traveled down I-43 to Cedarburg for a four-team showcase this weekend. Sturgeon Bay was able to pick up a split, losing Friday night to Neenah 2-0 and bouncing back on Saturday morning. The Clippers ended on a high note besting Germantown 2-1. Sturgeon Bay plays again Monday afternoon at Algoma.




Brewers beat Pirates 10-1 again

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

 

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

Wisconsin football dominates Michigan

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

Gibraltar bangs out win on 105.1 The Viking

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

Algoma dominates Williams Bay on 96.7 WBDK

Algoma had a chance to shine in front of the home fans and for anyone who couldn't attend the game on the radio. And the Wolves did not disappoint. They knocked off Williams Bay 58-0 on Saturday afternoon in a game that was broadcast on 96.7 WBDK and DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com.

Algoma led 28-0 after the first quarter and 44-0 at the half. It became a running clock in the first half. Carter Zimmerman threw a touchdown pass to both Chase Peronto and Brett Benesh. Zimmerman also ran in a touchdown and returned the opening kickoff of the second half for a score. Williams Bay didn't have a first down until playing against Algoma's backups in the fourth quarter. Freshman Kaden Vardon capped off the game by scoring his first career touchdown.

Brewers win again Friday night

Milwaukee picked up its 13th victory in 15 contests Friday night at Miller Park, dropping Pittsburgh 10-1 in the weekend series opener. Milwaukee wasted little time getting on the board, putting up three runs in the first and three more in the sixth. That was plenty for pitcher Chad Anderson who hurled six scoreless frames for the win. The Brew Crew tacked on another four runs in the seventh. Trent Grisham led the team with three RBIs off the bench.

 

St. Louis defeated Chicago 2-1 which moves Milwaukee two games clear of the Cubs for the second Wild Card spot in the National League. At 84-70, Milwaukee remains three back of the Cardinals for the Central Division lead.

Gibraltar looks to extend winning streak on 105.1 The Viking

The Gibraltar Vikings hope to run its winning streak in football to four when it plays NEW Lutheran/Oneida Nation Saturday afternoon in Green Bay on 105.1 The Viking.

 

The Vikings are coming off maybe their most exciting victory of the season, a 28-24 slugfest against previously unbeaten Laona-Wabeno. NEW Lutheran/Oneida Nation is also coming off a victory, a 14-0 decision to Lena/St. Thomas Aquinas. It is the first season as a co-op team for NEW Lutheran and Oneida Nation after years of playing apart. Boasting two different styles of offense coming into the season, Gibraltar head coach Mike Peck says they have done a good job blending it together.

 

 

Tim Kowols will have the call on 105.1 The Viking from Green Bay beginning at 12:30 p.m. followed by kickoff at 1 p.m.

 

 




Wisconsin Heights wears out Sturgeon Bay

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


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

Southern Door soars in homecoming victory on 102.1 MORE FM

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

 

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

 

The Eagles get a week off before hosting Kewaunee on October 4th on 102.1 MORE FM.

 

 

Spartans rollover Truckers 48-13 on WBDK

The Luxemburg-Casco Spartans ran over the Clintonville Truckers 48-13 in Luxemburg Friday night in a North Eastern Conference football game.  The Spartans scored on their first offensive play with a 50 yard run by quarterback Matt Cravillion.  Clintonville did tie up the score with a 7:45 left in the first quarter on an 8-yard option run by Hunter Allender.  Luxemburg-Casco tallied three touchdowns in the second quarter to take a 28-7 lead into halftime. 

 
After intermission, Running back Reese Worachek scored one of his three touchdowns on a nine-yard run with 4:22 left in the third quarter to give the Spartans a 35-7 lead.  Worachek finished with a game-high 178 yards in rushing on 20 carries while Cravillion added 81 yards rushing while throwing for 73 yards and two touchdowns.

Evenson's amazing second half leads Sevastopol to victory

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Dinelson Lamet struck out 14 Brewers hitters, but other than that Milwaukee starter Adrian Houser nearly matched the Padres' right-hander.

 

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

Luxemburg-Casco experiments with tacklebar football

Fifth and sixth graders at Luxemburg-Casco are experimenting with tacklebar football this season. The goal of the program is to help increase participation in the sport. Youth Football Coordinator Matt Piesler says that the size descrepancy at that age between boys can keep those on the smaller side from playing.

 


Tacklebar is a fusion of flag and tackle football designed to keep aggression in the game. Athletes wear a harness with two bars that detach when grabbed. Players have to complete a form tackle, leading with the shoulder, and wrapping up to dislodge the bar. Paisler notes the varsity roster at L-C High School has shed dozens of players over the past decade. The hope is tacklebar can stem the loss of young players of the sport and that translates to better participation rates at higher grades.

 

Ryan Braun grand slam gives Brewers win

The bases were juiced but Milwaukee was down to its final strike. Ryan Braun stood in the batter’s box down 1-2 in the count with Junior Fernandez on the mound. He took two breaking balls, fouled off a third, before striking the big blow for the Brew Crew. Fernandez hung a slider belt high over the middle of the plate and Braun sent the ball soaring to the bleachers in left center. Tommy Edman homered with one out in the bottom of the ninth to keep it interesting but Milwaukee won the game and the series. 


The 7-6 triumph means Milwaukee keeps pace with the Cubs, just one back in the NL Wild Card. The North Siders broomed Pittsburgh scoring in seven of eight innings they batted for another offensive explosion. The NL Central is tightening up again though. No longer is it just the Wild Card in play. The Cubs are two back of the Cards and Milwaukee is three. The Brewers do not face a team above .500 for the rest of the season. They couldn’t draw up a better schedule to chase down division foes and earn a spot in the postseason field.

 

Packers turn back Vikings in home opener

The Green and Gold are now 2-0 on the season winning with solid defense again. Last week’s victory against the Bears was described as ugly by players and coaches alike. The offense came out guns blazing in response Sunday. The opening scoring drive went 75 yards on four plays with Aaron Rodgers capping it off by connecting with running back Jamaal Williams on a screen pass. The Pack went up 14-0 on another Rodgers touchdown pass to Geronimo Allison from 12 yards out. Early in the second quarter the Packers again punched it in on a two-yard run by Aaron Jones. 


Then it stopped. From 21-0, the lead was shaved to 21-16 by the end of the third. No scoring occurred in the fourth and Green Bay sent the crowd home happy. Rodgers was 22-34 for 209 yards and two touchdowns. No interceptions but a lost fumble marred an otherwise clean stat sheet. Aaron Jones led the way on the ground, carrying the ball 23 times for 116 yards and a score. Davante Adams was the primary receiver with 106 yards on seven catches.


The Packer defense allowed over 400 yards of offense but forced turnovers regularly. Kirk Cousins threw two picks and lost a fumble. Stefon Diggs put the ball on the ground which was recovered by Green Bay. Chad Beebe fumbled twice but Minnesota kept possession. Green Bay hosts Denver in Week Three next Sunday.

 

Algoma volleyball hangs on against Peshtigo

The Wolves won their sixth straight match Thursday night at Peshtigo. It wasn’t easy though. Algoma took the first two sets but had to sweat through a fifth set win to take the match. The final score was 25-22, 25-17, 23-25, 18-25, 15-9. Hanna Wiese, Rianna Jones, and Chloie Spitzer all had at least five service aces. Sydney Zimmerman led the team with 17 kills. Rianna Jones and Jacklyn had over 20 assists. Algoma’s next match is Thursday against Oconto.

Southern Door volleyball runs the table at Ripon

Algoma blanks Gillett Friday 42-0

The Wolves cruised to an easy victory over Gillett Friday rebounding from their first loss of the year in convincing fashion, 42-0. Gillett struggled to get to 120 yards of total offense and Algoma found a fast start. The Wolves put up 20 in the first quarter and another 16 in the second to lead 36-0 at halftime. It was all on the ground for the Wolves. Quarterback Carter Zimmerman only had two passing attempts with one completion for 15 yards. Six running backs were used in committee to help replace Oliver Robertson who missed his second consecutive contest. The feature back was Jordan Derringer with 15 carries and three touchdowns.


Algoma hosts Williams Bay Saturday, a game you will hear on 96.7 WBDK and streaming on doorcountydailynews.com and doorkewauneehighschoolsports.com.

 

Kewaunee football dispatches Crivitz 48-12 Friday night

The Storm offense was almost as potent on the gridiron Friday night as Mother Nature was this past week. It started on the ground for Kewaunee with running back Owen Kudick averaging nine yards per carry. Kudick was the workhorse handling all 31 rushing attempts on the night for 279 yards and four scores. Quarterback Ryan Carmichael had three touchdown passes of his own balanced against an interception. Carmichael finished the night with 12 completions on 16 attempts for 108 yards. 


A concerning thing for Coach Randy Charles and his staff is that big plays reared their head again against the Kewaunee defense. Crivitz’s two touchdowns were a 36-yard pass and a 70-yard run. Crivitz only ran 25 plays on offense which makes that stand out even more. Kewaunee is off this week. Originally they were scheduled to line up against Sturgeon Bay but that game has been forfeited by the Clippers and Kewaunee was unable to swap in another opponent.

 

Wisconsin football off this weekend

The Badgers have been nothing short of impressive so far this season. Wisconsin was 10.5 point favorites in Tampa in Week One against South Florida. They covered that easily winning 49-0. Last weekend against Central Michigan in the home opener, Wisconsin was favored by 35 and won 61-0. Both games have been complete efforts showing that the offseason commitment the team made to avoid another 8-5 season was more than just hot air. This weekend was a bye week, one of two on the regular-season schedule. The Big Ten has moved the end of its regular-season schedule to the weekend after Thanksgiving and, this year, the holiday is as late as it can be on November 28th marking a rare 14-week window between Labor Day weekend and Turkey Day. With 12 games on the schedule, all teams will have a double bye.


Wisconsin opens Big Ten play Saturday at home against Michigan. The Wolverines have been the mirror opposite of Wisconsin so far this year. They’ve won both of their games but missed the Vegas line by at least two scores in both instances. Michigan had a bye this weekend as well. In their last outing on September 7th, it took double overtime for Michigan to knock off Army at home.

 

Brewers cage Cardinals Saturday 5-2

Milwaukee fell 10-0 on Friday night in St. Louis and went down 2-0 after two innings Saturday but that didn’t fluster them. St. Louis centerfielder Harrison Bader scored on a throwing error by Brewers catcher Yasmani Grandal after Bader had stolen third base. It was the last run of the night for the Cardinals. Milwaukee tied it up on a Mike Moustakas line-drive home run to center in the fourth and Grandal hit a homer in the eighth inning. Both were two-run shots plating Trent Grisham. Milwaukee also scored a lone run in the sixth when first baseman Eric Thames grounded into a fielder’s choice.

 

Chicago downed Pittsburgh 14-1 and the Cubs remain a game ahead of Milwaukee for the NL Wild Card race.

Gibraltar tips Laona-Wabeno on 105.1 The Viking

A slugfest turned into a track meet in the second half as Gibraltar beat Laona-Wabeno in MONLPC eight-man football action Saturday afternoon 28-24.

 

The first half started 6-0 in favor of Laona-Wabeno thanks to the Rebels' Connor Taylor punching in a touchdown from inside the five-yard line. The Vikings' Luke Steebs found Alex Laughlin for a 36-yard score to narrow the score to 8-6 at the break. Laughlin broke through to tie the game with a short touchdown, only to have Clayton Jansesch quickly answer back with a touchdown run of his own. Both teams started to play long ball after that, starting with Laughlin finding Marcus Reinhardt for a 43 yard score after receiving the pitch from Steebs. The Rebels quickly answered with their own 80-yard touchdown pass to Michael Stamper to make it 24-20. Laughlin would find himself a part of another scoring drive, this time on the receiving end of a 67-yard passing play from Steebs. 

 

It was a game of defensive stands for the Vikings, which forced four fumbles on the day while recovering two and made a key play at the end to give the Rebels their first loss of the season.

 

The Vikings are back in action next Saturday afternoon in Green Bay as they take on NEW Lutheran/Oneida Nation. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. and will air on 105.1 The Viking.

Brewers seven-game win streak snapped

Milwaukee looked poised for a fast start Friday night in St. Louis riding the momentum of its longest win streak of the season. The Brewers led off the first with a single and a walk to put pressure on Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright immediately. Wainwright got pop outs from Mike Moustakas and Lorenzo Cain neutralizing the threat. The Cardinals got their offense going in the bottom of the third, and they did not leave men stranded. First baseman Paul Goldschmidt hit a grand slam making it 4-0 Red Birds. Goldschmidt added a second home run in the sixth inning, a three-run shot, and St. Louis found a way to scratch out three other runs to make it a 10-0 final. The Cubs beat Pittsburgh 17-8 at home meaning Chicago has reclaimed sole possession of the second NL Wild Card slot. Milwaukee falls to 78-69 on the year.

Gibraltar hosts matinee against Laona-Wabeno on 105.1 The Viking

It is another week and another different starting time for the Gibraltar Vikings as they host the Laona-Wabeno Rebels on 105.1 The Viking.  Both teams are coming off big week three wins before Saturday’s matinee. The Vikings were able to contain Suring’s Logan Stuart and hit big plays of their own in its 43-24 victory of the Eagles.  The Rebels won in a 48-0 shutout of Lena/St. Thomas Aquinas. In four weeks the Vikings have split their home and road schedule so far on three different days of the week. Gibraltar head coach Mike Peck says they adjusted their schedule accordingly to game plan for what expects to be a tough test for his young team.

Tim Kowols and Jay Kita will have the call Saturday afternoon on 105.1 The Viking beginning at 12:30 p.m. with the pregame show followed by kickoff at 1 p.m.

Sturgeon Bay tripped up by Chequamegon

The Clippers football squad fell Friday evening in Park Falls to Chequamegon High School 38-8. Although the final score looks lopsided, the game was far more competitive than Sturgeon Bay’s contest with Oakfield a week ago. The Clippers had just one penalty for the game, a holding call late in the fourth quarter. Last week they suffered multiple delay of game infractions, false starts, and personal fouls. 


On a wet, sloppy field with rain coming down ball security remained an issue. Sturgeon Bay had a handful of bad and mishandled snaps. Quarterback Anthony Jennerjohn was intercepted three times by the Screaming Eagles’ Joseph Newbury. The turnovers proved too much for Sturgeon Bay who kept it close for much of the first half. The game was scoreless after one quarter and 16-0 at halftime. Chequamegon quarterback Michael Kirch joined Andrew Wells and Jacob Mertig to pace the Screaming Eagles rushing attack. Kirch kept his own number on an option running right to give Chequamegon its second score with under one minute to go in the first half.


Sturgeon Bay was able to move the football but was held off the board in the game’s first 24 minutes. Their best scoring opportunity of the first half came on a drive that began at their own 17. It ended abruptly after a Jennerjohn fumble on a designed run inside the opponent’s 30-yard line. A long pass play to receiver Drew Price set up the Clippers score in the fourth quarter. Price caught a crossing route and stayed on his feet down the left sideline to the Chequamegon 5 yard line. Sturgeon Bay plays in one week against Wisconsin Heights.

 

Spartans' rally fall shorts 24-21 to Freedom on WBDK

In a nail-biting finish, the Luxemburg -Casco Spartans came up four yards short of a remarkable comeback Friday night in Freedom as the Irish prevailed 24-21 in a North Eastern Conference football game.  Down 24-7 in the fourth quarter, the Spartans rallied with two touchdowns and drove to the Irish four-yard line in the final three minutes.  Faced with a first and goal from the four-yard line with: 09 seconds left, the Freedom defense came up big and stopped quarterback Matt Cravillion on a rollout pass/run option play to secure the victory.  


After a scoreless first quarter, Freedom (3-0, 4-0 overall) controlled the middle two quarters by scoring 24 unanswered points after the Spartans took the lead early in the second quarter on a 17-yard touchdown run by Reece Worachek.  The Irish scored right before halftime on a one-yard quarterback sneak by Jackson Higgins after a long pass reception set up the score in the final seconds of the half. 

 
Worachek had another monster game for the Spartans rushing for an impressive 295 yards and two touchdowns.  


The Spartans (1-2, 1-3 overall) will now look to bounce back next week at home as they take on the Clintonville Truckers Friday night in a game that will be broadcast on 96.7 FM WBDK starting at 6:30 pm with the pregame show.  

 

Eagles football can't corral Cougars on 102.1 MORE FM

The Southern Door Eagles could not get their running game going and could not stop Coleman’s in a 44-0 defeat Friday night on 102.1 MORE FM. The Cougars defense kept Nick Baudhuin and the Eagles in check for most of the game outside of a 55 -yard passing play by Alex Daoust in the game’s opening minutes. Stopping that drive inside their own red zone propelled the Cougars on their first drive, which was capped off by a touchdown run by quarterback Cayden Bintz. In the second quarter, Bintz and Zach Cops would score on touchdowns from inside the 10-yard line to make it 24-0 at the half. Owen Kinziger and Tyler Blanchard would add third-quarter scores before Zach Cops added his second touchdown of the game in the closing minutes. The Eagles return to action next Friday for its homecoming showdown against Oconto. That game can be heard on 102.1 MORE FM beginning at 6:30 p.m. followed by kickoff at 7 p.m.

Sevastopol trails all night on 104.1 WRLU

Sevastopol's best efforts against Florence on Friday night couldn't lead to a victory against the Bobcats. Florence won 60-0 on the Pioneers home field in a game heard on 104.1 WRLU and DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com. 

 

The Bobcats got off to a quick start, scoring touchdowns with the two-point conversions on all four of their first quarter possessions and led 32-0 after one. Sevastopol couldn't get much going on offense. Florence picked off four Triston Beauchamp passes in the game which came after last week's four touchdown game against Green NEW Lutheran/Oneida Nation. Kaden Schuls and Toby Wheeler were the big playmakers for Florence on offense and on defense. Tommy Giblin, Christian Terhardt and Spencer Evenson were the standouts for Sevastopol on the defensive side of the field.

 

Sevastopol is now 0-4 overall on the season and 0-3 in the MONLPC. The Pioneers will try to bounce back next Friday night when they host Wausaukee. That game will also be on 104.1 WRLU with the pregame show starting at 6:30 PM and kickoff at 7.

Brewers catch Cubs in wild card chase

The Milwaukee Brewers are taking full advantage of the freefall of their southern neighbors after beating the Miami Marlins 7-5 Wednesday.

 

Trent Grisham opened the scoring for the Brewers with his fifth home run of the season, only to have it matched by a Starlin Castro sacrifice fly in the bottom half of the first inning. After the Marlins took a 2-1 lead, the Brewers stormed back to take the lead thanks to a Mike Moustakas home run in the third inning and a Zach Davies RBI single in the fourth. A pair of home runs tied the game up for the Marlins in the seventh inning, but it was Moustakas who gave the Brewers the final two runs it needed as he slugged his second dinger of the game and his 33rd of the season in the top of the ninth inning. Josh Hader nailed it down in the bottom half of the ninth to secure his 30th save of the season. 

 

The Brewers will finish its series with the Marlins this afternoon at 12:10 with hopes of having the second wild card slot all to themselves if the Chicago Cubs' freefall continues in San Diego.

Eric Thames delivered his 21st homer in the sixth inning and Tyrone Taylor singled in a run to cap off the scoring for the Brewers. Jason Heyward's 19th home run would call in Josh Hader from the pen to stop the game from going further as he earned his 29th save of the season.

Checkers wave for season finale at The Hill

 82 drivers checked in to do battle for the final race of the 2019 season. There were 25 Sport Mods, 20 Street Stocks, 17 Stock Cars, 14 Modifieds and 6 Bombers.  

 

The Modifieds made their first appearance of the season and Kelsy Hayes drew the pole. Hayes jumped out to an early lead with Mike Wedelstadt and Kyle Kudick in hot pursuit. Wedelstadt proved to be too tough as he used the top groove to take the lead. Kudick was the next to work past Hayes and into the runner up position. Wedelstadt went unchallenged the remainder of the event to score a clean sweep on the night. Kudick came home in the runner-up position, Jason Ebert won a race long battle to place third, Todd Dart was fourth and Jeremy Jacobs completed the top five.  

 

In Street Stock action it was Dan Van Pay leading the opening laps as David Hoerning and Troy Muench began to apply pressure early. Hoerning was able to dispose of Muench, setting his sights on Van Pay. On lap 8, Hoerning made the pass for the top spot. Van Pay dogged Hoerning all the way to checker but it wasn’t enough as Hoerning earned his first win of the season. Van Pay had to settle for second. Dave DeGrave came home third while driving his back-up car, Muench was fourth and John Denil Jr had his best run of the season to place fifth.  

 

Several cautions couldn’t slow Shawn Havel’s charge as he easily pulled away from the pack, picking up the win over Rod Snellenberger in the Stock Cars. David Bouche was third, John Anschutz took fourth and 2019 champion Brett Wenzel rounded out the top five.  

 

Cody Rass led all 20 laps to score his second feature win of the season in the Sport Mods. Dennis Miesler placed a solid second, 2019 champion Chris Budzban was third after starting 15th, Cole Magnin placed fourth in his first visit of the season and Andy Klosterman was fifth.  

 

2019 Bomber champion Tony Everard picked up his second win of the season, leading every lap of the feature.

Algoma football suffers first eight-man loss

Algoma Head Coach Wade Vandervest said earlier in the week that Newman Catholic would be the Wolves' biggest eight-man test to date. On Friday night, Algoma fell short in answering that challenge. The Fighting Cardinals picked up a 42-12 victory on the road. Quarterback Ben Bates ran for two scores and threw for another as Newman Catholic jumped out to a 28-0 halftime lead. Algoma tried to fire back in the third, scoring twice. QB Carter Zimmerman had a one-yard touchdown run before finding Chase Peronto for 50 yards. Both touchdown drives had unsuccessful two-point attempts. After three, it was 28-12. Algoma's defense couldn't slam the door shut for the entire second half though. Newman Catholic scored two more times in the fourth to round out the scoring.

 

Algoma was missing running back Oliver Robertson who was hurt on special teams in Week Two at Sevastopol with the game well in hand in the second half. Algoma travels to Gillett on Friday.

Kewaunee football nips Coleman Friday Night

Kewaunee had to come from behind Friday night against Coleman. Ryan Carmichael found sophomore Benjamin Heim from ten yards out for the go-ahead score in the fourth quarter. The Storm added a two-point conversion to take a three-point lead which held up as the final score 21-18. It was Heim's first varsity game and he showed up on the stat sheet in a big way, 8 grabs for over 100 yards in total. Carmichael was 13-22 for 167 yards and two touchdowns. He also threw an interception. On the ground, Owen Kudick led the way for the Storm with 140 yards but Jack Severin picked up the rushing touchdown. Severin gained 77 yards on seven carries.

 

Coleman was on the board first, Cayden Bintz to Tyler Blanchard from five yards out. The Cougars did not convert for two. Before the end of the first, Severin notched his rushing touchdown to make it 7-6 Kewaunee after one. Carmichael completed a 5-yard touchdown pass to Jason Selner but missed the extra point. At the half, it was Kewaunee up 13-6.

 

The only score of the third was a 29-yard scamper by Coleman's Zach Cops. The Cougars failed on another two-point try and Kewaunee clung to a 13-12 lead. In the fourth, Coleman took its first lead on a 4-yard run by QB Cayden Bintz to make it 18-13 Cougars before Kewaunee's comeback.

Badgers post second consecutive shutout

The Badgers defense continues to have a clean 2019-2020 season. In Week One, Wisconsin shut out South Florida 49-0 and Saturday they blanked Central Michigan 61-0 in the home opener. It was as lopsided as the score would suggest.

 

Wisconsin outgained CMU 599-58. Quarterback Jack Coan threw for 363 yards, the fifth-best single-game mark in school history. Coan had three touchdown throws including two to WR Quintez Cephus. Central Michigan averaged less than two yards per pass and just 0.7 yards per rush. The Chippewas only possessed the ball for 20:33, barely half of what the Badgers had.

 

Wisconsin is off next week before starting Big Ten play on the 21st against Michigan. The Wolverines squeaked by Army 24-21 in double OT.

Yelich leads Brewers to win over Cubs

Christian Yelich might need a passport after Saturday's game. He was well-traveled on the basepaths with three steals helping to vault himself into the 40-30 club for 2019. That would be 40 home runs and 30 steals in a single season, a feat accomplished only nine other times in MLB history. It wasn't his feet that won the game for the Brew Crew though. Yelich delivered a walk-off double in the bottom of the ninth plating Tyler Austin for a 3-2 Brewer win. Milwaukee picked up single runs in the sixth and eighth innings to answer Chicago scores. It wasn't until two were out in the bottom of the ninth that the Brewers took the lead. Milwaukee is within three games of the Cubs for the final Wild Card spot with the series finale this afternoon at Miller Park.

Badgers look to make it two straight

The Wisconsin Badgers football team will look to start their 2019 season with two straight wins when they face Central Michigan (1-0) at home Saturday. This will be the first of five straight home games for Wisconsin. The Badgers are coming off a dominant performance down in Tampa Bay where they defeated the South Florida 49-0. Reigning Doak Walker Award winner Jonathan had 4 total touchdowns in the game. Kickoff for Saturday’s game is scheduled for 2:30 PM.

Yelich, Grandal homeruns power Brewers

The Milwaukee Brewers bounced back from Thursday’s loss and defeated the Cubs 7-1 Friday. Reigning NL MVP Christian Yelich hit a 3-run homerun in the bottom of the 3rd inning, his 44th on the year. Brewers’ catcher Yasmani Grandal also added a solo homerun in the bottom of the 4th inning for his 24th homerun on the season. Starting pitcher Zach Davies went five solid innings, only allowing 3 hits, 1 run while striking out 4 to pick up his ninth win on the year. The Brewers and Cubs will continue their series Saturday; Gio Gonzalez is slated to start for Milwaukee and he will face Yu Darvish. First pitch is scheduled for 6:10 PM.

Sturgeon Bay falls in eight-man football debut on 103.3 The Clipper

It was not the start to the eight-man era that Head Coach Jim Adams and his team hoped for when Sturgeon Bay traveled to Oakfield Friday night. The Oaks scored in almost every way possible; through the air, on the ground, returning a kickoff, a fumble recovery, and an interception return. This allowed Oakfield to put points on the board in bunches. The final was 77-24. Sturgeon Bay struggled on offense until Storm Adams was replaced at quarterback by Anthony Jennerjohn. Ball security tightened up and Jennerjohn hit Jack Schmelzer for two scores. The first in the second quarter on a post pattern for 46 yards. The second was a crossing route towards the right sideline from 28 yards out in the fourth quarter. The last score of the game was a 29-yard interception return by Curtis Barganz. Barganz stepped in front of a screen pass in the left flat. Sturgeon Bay was able to convert for two after all three touchdowns.

Trick play spurs Gibraltar to victory on 105.1 The Viking

Giving up a late first-half touchdown to the host Suring Eagles gave the motivation the Gibraltar Vikings needed to take control of the game in a 43-24 victory Friday night on 105.1 The Viking.

 

The two teams traded scores for much of the first half thanks to Luke Steebs finding Alex Laughlin for a pair of second-quarter touchdowns from 10 and 43 yards out. After the Eagles surprised the Vikings with a 39-yard touchdown pass with just over a minute remaining, the Vikings had a trick up their sleeve ending with Laughlin finding Steebs in the endzone on double-reverse passing play. It was all Gibraltar in the second half, outscoring Suring 21-8 thanks to Brandon Stillman, Steebs, and Sam Lindenberg scoring on rushing touchdowns.

 

Gibraltar will play two consecutive Saturday matinees beginning this upcoming week against Laona-Wabeno in Fish Creek. You'll be able to catch that game on 105.1 The Viking beginning at 12:30 p.m. with the pre-game show followed by kickoff at 1 p.m.

Second Half Action

Eagles get first victory on parent night on More FM 102.1

The Southern Door Eagles pulled out their first win in the 2019 season defeating Crivitz 39-14. It was parent night at Southern Door and the players put on a performance for their families. Running back Nick Baudhuin had a career night for the Eagles. The junior running back had 28 rushes for 392yds, a new school record, and scored all 6 touchdowns for Southern Door which tied the school record. 
The Eagles were able to get on the board about midway through the first quarter on a 26yd touchdown run by Baudhuin. The Wolverines were able to answer in the second quarter, scoring on a 16yd pass from QB Jaden Werner to WR Dawson Andrist; Wolverines converted a 2pt conversion to take an 8-7 lead. The Eagles did not let that lead last long though, going ahead 13-8 on a 7yd touchdown run by Baudhuin. Baudhuin would add another 13yd touchdown which gave the Eagles a 19-8 lead but the Wolverines would not go away easy. Crivitz scored with about 30 seconds left in the first half cutting the lead to 19-14.
In the second half though it was all Nick Baudhuin; the Eagles running back added 3 more scores from 31, 38, and 1yd respectively. The Eagles defense was just as good; they held the Wolverines offense to only 160yds as a whole. 
Southern Door (1-2) will look ahead to their next matchup at Coleman on September 13th. The game will broadcast on More FM 102.1. Pregame show begins at 6:30 PM with kickoff coming at 7 PM.

Sevastopol falls 58-32 to NEW Lutheran/Oneida on 104.1 WRLU

Sevastopol's offense came alive in the first half of their game against Green Bay NEW Lutheran/Oneida. Unfortunately, the Pioneers issues stopping the run continued and they fell 58-32 on the road in a game heard on 104.1 WRLU and DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com.

 

Sevastopol scored a touchdown on the opening drive of the game and then got their other points on big plays. Tristian Beauchamp threw two long touchdown passes to Logan Beyer and one to Spencer Evenson. The junior running back and defensive back also returned a punt for a touchdown in the game.

 

NEW/Oneida broke the game open in the first half when they were leading 34-26. Peyton Ponfil intercepted a Beauchamp pass and returned it to the 10 yard line of Sevastopol. They would capitalize and the Pioneers would never get within one score the rest of the game.

 

It was a 50-26 score at the half and the defenses picked up their play in the second half as NEW/Oneida outscored Sevastopol 8-6.

 

Sevastopol's next game will be at home against Florence next Friday night. The pregame show will begin at 6:30 PM and kickoff at 7 on 104.1 WRLU and DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com.

Spartans dominate Marinette 31-8 on WBDK

The Luxemburg-Casco Spartans defeated the Marinette Marines 31-8 at the Luxemburg-Casco Sports Complex Friday night in a North Eastern Conference game.  The Spartans were led by Reece Worachek who rushed for 155 yards and scored four touchdowns.  L-C  jumped out to a 21-0 lead in the first half as the Marines struggled to get going as they managed less than 100 yards of total offense.  Worachek scored his final touchdown with 5:58 left in the third quarter to seal the victory for the Spartans.  John Larsen added a 34 yard field goal in the fourth quarter to close out the scoring.  The Spartans (1-1, 1-2 overall) will now travel to Freedom to face the Irish next Friday in a game you can listen to on 96.7 FM WBDK starting at 6:30 pm with the pregame show and kickoff at 7 pm.

Algoma volleyball sweeps Sevastopol Thursday

Each set got progressively more competitive Thursday night at Algoma High School as the Wolves broomed Sevastopol 25-10, 25-14, 25-17. That may be the only positive takeaway for the Pioneers who fell to 1-6 on the season. Algoma is 6-4, winners of five straight. Thursday's win was a true team effort. Sydney Zimmerman led the Wolves at the net with 16 kills. Captain Jacklyn Dean had 16 assists offensively to go with seven service aces.

Gibraltar takes aim at Suring on 105.1 The Viking

The Gibraltar Vikings football team hope to make it two in a row on the young season when they travel to take on the Suring Eagles on 105.1 The Viking Friday night.

 

The Vikings' offense got back on track last Thursday during its 52-26 win over Gillett. The output has placed Luke Steebs as the conference's leader in passing yards and two of his favorite targets, Alex Laughlin and Brandon Stillman, in the top three for receiving. The defense will have its work cut out for them with Suring's Logan Staurt rushing the ball at a clip of over 250 yards per game. Like many teams recently making the switch to eight-man, Gibraltar head coach Mike Peck says it has to figure out to counteract Suring using 11-man concepts in its line play.

 

 

Tim Kowols will have the call of Friday's game between Gibraltar and Suring on 105.1 The Viking beginning at 6:30 p.m. with the pregame show followed by kickoff at 7:00.  

 

 

FULL INTERVIEW WITH HEAD COACH MIKE PECK

 

L-C, Kewaunee finish together in DePere Invitational

An incoming storm forced Kewaunee and Luxemburg-Casco cross country runners to participate in one of the most unique scenes you will ever see in De Pere Thursday evening.

Weather forces cancellations

Unless it was indoors or able to fit in a tight window, there is a good chance weather forced many high school events last night.

 

Soccer games featuring Sturgeon Bay and Luxemburg-Casco were among those events cancelled last night as heavy rains and lightning hit the area during the 4 p.m. hour. Those games have not yet been rescheduled.

 

 

Packers top Bears in season opener

It was not pretty, but it worked for the Green Bay Packers as they escaped Chicago with a 10-3 victory over the rival Bears.

 

The Packers were held to negative yards in the first quarter, but were able to escape it down only three after Eddy Pineiro hit a 38-yard field goal. After finding Marquez Valdes-Scantling for a big gain, Aaron Rodgers was able to find Jimmy Graham in the end zone in the second quarter to go into the half up 7-3. The Packers extended their lead thanks to Mason Crosby in the fourth quarter and held onto it thanks to some timely sacks and an interception by former Bear Adrian Amos. 

 

The Packers are back home for five of their next six games including next Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.

Cubs slug past Brewers

Six home runs were hit in the Milwaukee Brewers' 10-5 loss Thursday night at Miller Park.

 

Leads went back and forth through the first five innings thanks to home runs by Yasmani Grandal and Hernan Perez for the Brewers and Willson Contreras for the Cubs. That all changed in the sixth when Anthony Rizzo's double gave the Cubs a 5-4 lead and Kyle Schwarber blew the game wide open with a grand slam a few batters later. Cory Spangenberg hit a solo home run in the sixth inning to narrow the lead, only to see it stretched back to five with one swing of the bat for David Bote.

 

The Cubs and Brewers are back in action Friday night at 7:10 as both teams battle for wild card positioning.

Clippers begin eight-man era Friday Night on 103.3

For the first time ever, Sturgeon Bay will participate in eight-man varsity football. The team had to forfeit its 11-man schedule less than a month ago after only 15 players participated in the first day of practice. The last-minute scramble to try to put together a new slate of games for 2019 netted three opponents. The first of those matchups sees Sturgeon Bay traveling to Oakfield to try and carve up the Oaks Friday night. Oakfield is 1-1 on the year. They were knocked around by Newman Catholic 53-21 in Week One before rebounding for a 25-24 victory against Belmont.


The Door County Medical Center pregame is at 6:30 with kickoff at 7 on 103.3 The Clipper.

Sevastopol trying for first win on the road on 104.1 WRLU

The game will be broadcasted live on 104.1 WRLU and streamed at DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com. The pregame show will begin at 6:30 PM and kickoff at 7.

Spartans host Marinette on WBDK Friday night

The Luxemburg-Casco Spartans will play host to the Marinette Marines in a North Eastern Conference football game Friday night.  The Spartans (0-1, 0-2 overall) are coming off a tough 21-19 loss to Fox Valley Lutheran last week.  Marinette (0-1, 0-2) lost in their M & M rivalry game with Menominee last week 43-14.  The home opener for the Spartans will celebrate Alumni Night, Veterans Night and Family Night at the Luxemburg-Casco Sports Complex.  Matt Piesler and Paul Schmitt will have the call starting at 6:30 pm with the pregame and kick off at 7 pm on 96.7 FM WBDK.  The game will also be streamed live on DoorCountyDailyNews.com.

Kewaunee football looking for complete game

Last Friday night, Kewaunee evened its season at 1-1 with a roller coaster win at Manawa. The Storm responded well to the week one loss by putting together a great first quarter. After 12 minutes of play it was 21-0 Storm. At halftime though, it was tied. Head Coach Randy Charles says he is not concerned, yet, about his team's inability to put together a complete football game.

 


That doesn't mean it isn't on his wishlist though. To open conference play, Kewaunee faces Coleman. The Cougars like to prowl on the ground. Expect Tyler Blanchard and Owen Kinziger to both get carries. They are each over 100 yards rushing on the season. Kewaunee is more balanced. In the win against Manawa, the Storm threw for 242 yards and ran for 180. Owen Kudick remains the threat on the ground with Max Hanrahan the receiver of choice for QB Ryan Carmichael. 

Clippers ready for tough stretch

The Sturgeon Bay High School soccer team has a tough four-game stretch over the next five days but head coach Todd Maas is not worrying. The Clippers are coming off a 6-4 victory over Fox Valley Lutheran. Tonight, the team will take on Stockbridge at home before heading down to Racine for The Prairie School Quad on Friday and Saturday. The Clippers will battle The Prairie School at 5 PM on Friday and take on Wauwatosa West at 10 AM on Saturday. The team will have Sunday off before travelling to Peshtigo to take on the Bulldogs on Monday. Even though the team will play a lot of games in a short time period head coach Todd Maas says the chemistry between the players should have them prepared.


 


Maas adds that his players looked good in their latest victory but they need to work on their defense if they want to continue succeeding going forward.

Algoma football gears up for Newman Catholic

Head Coach Wade Vandervest believes Newman Catholic could pose the greatest challenge for Algoma this season. The Wolves are 2-0 in 2019 and have outscored their opponents by a combined 80-6. In the first three quarters of their week two matchup at Sevastopol, the Algoma defense allowed just a single first down. Sevastopol quickly tried to go to the air to move the ball. Algoma handled it with general ease but Vandervest isn't ready to say that the Wolves will react as well to Newman's air raid offense. Their quarterback, Ben Tate, is completing 73 percent of his passes this year with eight touchdowns and zero interceptions. 


Algoma plans to counterattack the Fighting Cardinals with a creative wildcat style offense. Vandervest says Algoma developed the offense specifically for the eight-man game.

 


Those two athletes are Carter Zimmerman and Oliver Robertson. Robertson was injured on special teams in the second half last week. If he is unable to go Friday night, look for wingback Brett Benesh to pick up some of the slack. Benesh has 6 rushing attempts on the year for 167 yards, a 28 yard average per carry.

Algoma volleyball opens conference play Thursday

Algoma volleyball is riding high coming off an undefeated effort at the Reedsville Invite last Friday. They have improved to 5-4 overall after a 1-4 start. Coach Eric Dean says Algoma's main weakness is the team's lack of size. Combining that with graduations from key members of last year's squad, the result was players in new positions on the court. Volleyball teams only have one week of practice before their match so some of the gelling happened on the court, with growing pains visible. Packerland Conference play opens with the Wolves hosting Sevastopol. The Pioneers are 1-5 on the year. Of those five losses, four have been two-set sweeps. The teams have had no common opponents so far this year. First set starts Thursday at 7 PM.

Berkley named new Sevastopol baseball coach

Sevastopol went just south of its district lines to grab its next head baseball coach.

 

In a message sent to Sturgeon Bay baseball players sent on Saturday, Kent Berkley told his former team that he had accepted the head baseball coach position at Sevastopol. Under the tutelage of head baseball coach John Berns, Berkley served as a hitting coach for the Clippers. Sturgeon Bay had two Packerland championships and a number of all-conference players during Berkley's short time with the program.

 

Berkley could not be reached via phone, but you can read the full message he sent to players, families, and supporters below.

 

"Having already written a note of gratitude to Coach Berns, Coach Andre and AD Meikle, this note is directed to the student-athletes and parents of Sturgeon Bay High School. I have accepted the position of Head Baseball Coach at Sevastopol High School for the 2020 season. I want to express how much I enjoyed working with each of you in the SBHS baseball program. Having the opportunity to teach the greatest game ever conceived to so many fine young men these past two seasons has been a great joy and gift for me. I tip my cap to the parents for nurturing and developing this group of young men who exhibited good character and spirit. Although I have been coaching baseball for decades, I make it a goal to continue learning new approaches for teaching the game. Good coaches steal from each other and I have learned valuable lessons from Coaches Berns and Andre. I have also learned a great deal from each player. I am always trying to find the best way to frame and communicate teaching points and the feedback you players provided has been extremely helpful in making me a better coach. Thank you -- I will miss working with you and seeing you on a regular basis. My parting advice to each player is to take advantage of every learning opportunity that presents itself to you. Remember that the time to prepare isn’t after you have been given the opportunity, it is long before the opportunity arises. So, work hard this off season and report to baseball practice ready to go. Listen carefully to Coach Berns and Coach Andre. They know the game and have proven track records of success. You also have a returning team captain in Jake Schneider who is an exemplary player, leader and competitor. The program is in good hands. My desire to work again as a head coach in no way diminishes how fond I am of SBHS. It has been a great place to work and a great place to send my son for an education. Luckily, we live in a small community and I will have the pleasure of seeing you all at school events and at other happenings in the community. In addition, Coach Berns and I plan to stay in touch regularly and to collaborate on some joint events to promote baseball in the community so I will likely see you in those venues also. Best to you all. Coach Kent Berkley"

Brewers keep pace with Cubs and Cardinals

The Brewers scored all their runs in the third inning on Tuesday and that was all they needed to pick up a 4-2 victory over the Astros at Miller Park. With the Astros up 1-0, Ryan Braun singled home Trent Grisham to tie it. Then Eric Thames delivered the big blow, a three-run homer off of Houston starter Zack Greinke.

 

Jordan Lyles delivered a terrific start for Milwaukee going 6 1/3 innings only allowing two runs and striking out six. The bullpen pitched a perfect 1 2/3 innings to secure the victory. 

 

Both the Cubs and Cardinals also won Tuesday so the Brewers remain seven games back of St. Louis in the division and four games behind Chicago for the second Wild Card. Milwaukee has Wednesday off before they start a huge four-game series with the Cubs at Miller Park starting on Thursday.

Cross country preview: Algoma hosts invitational

Brewers fall in extras to Astros

Christian Yelich's 43rd homer of the season merely extended the game for the Milwaukee Brewers in its 3-2 loss to the Houston Astros in 10 innings.

 

Yasmani Grandal opened the scoring for the Brewers with his 22nd homer in the bottom of the first to stake them to a 1-0 lead. The Astros would tie it up on an Alex Bregman single in the third inning and take the lead with a home run by Yordan Alvarez. Following Yelich's heroics in the ninth inning, George Springer hit a solo shot against Junior Guerra to give the Astros the series-opening win. 

 

The two teams meet again Tuesday night at Miller Park beginning at 6:40 p.m.

Sturgeon Bay CC part of Algoma field Tuesday

For the first in the 2019-2020 school calendar, student-athletes will be fulfilling both those roles. Once the school bell rings, ten teams will make their way to Algoma for a cross country meet. Several Packerland squads are represented including NEW Lutheran from Green Bay, host Algoma, and Sturgeon Bay. The Clippers had only two boys participate in the Chief K Invitational hosted by Gibraltar last week. Bennet Johnson was 82nd overall at 22:23.44. The girls’ squad had a full squad and finished ninth overall. Miranda Olson finished 37th overall at 24:11.54. 

Kewaunee football holds on in Manawa

In the first quarter Friday night, a running clock looked like a foregone conclusion as Kewaunee jumped out to a 21-0 lead over the Wolves. Kewaunee opened up its bag of tricks early with running back Owen Kudick delivering a pass to receiver Max Hanrahan for 70 yards. The rest of the way it was Ryan Carmichael throwing for Kewaunee. He ended the night 12-24 for 172 yards and a TD. Kudick returned to the run game and was equally productive with 180 yards on 25 attempts and 2 TDs. 

 

Manawa wouldn’t go away though. They flipped the script in the second quarter, blanking the Storm 21-0 and at the half it was tied up. Manawa took its first lead of the game in the fourth when quarterback Mason Wiesner connected for 24 yards to Riley Krenke. The extra point was unsuccessful and Manawa led 30-28. Kewaunee wrested the lead back with Kudick’s second TD run and a Carmichael two-point conversation scamper to make the score a 36-30 final.

Kewaunee Volleyball 4-2 in Hilbert Tournament

The Storm ran the gauntlet Friday with six volleyball matches at the Hilbert Invitational. After dropping both matches in Stevens Point earlier in the week, Kewaunee took four of the six in Hilbert to put their overall record at 4-4. Kewaunee swept Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah twice, with the first matchup ending 25-20, 25-14. The second was 25-19, 25-18. Kewaunee topped Cambria-Friesland 25-10, 25-27, 15-7. The first set against Cambria was the Storm’s best of the season so far.


In the second half of the day, Kewaunee swept Kohler, grounding the Blue Bombers 25-23, 25-23. Kewaunee would lose the next two matchups, falling 16-25, 19-25 to Oconto Falls and 21-25, 25-22, 10-15 to Brillion.

 

Kewaunee Volleyball drops two to start year

The Kewaunee Storm failed to generate any lightning on August 27th, dropping their first two matches of the year at the Stevens Point Invitational. The host Panthers kept Kewaunee in check 17-25 and 18-25 for a two-set sweep. The second match of the day against the Berlin Indians got off on the wrong foot with Kewaunee dropping the first set 14-25. The Storm stabilized, taking the second set 25-17 but it was all Berlin in the deciding frame, 5-15. Kewaunee made adjustments and fared better in a tournament at the end of the week.

Yelich provides exclamation point in Brewers win

Milwaukee picked up a much-needed series win against the Cubs on the South Side of Chicago Sunday afternoon. After dropping Friday’s weekend opener, the Crew shut out Chicago the past two days. Saturday was a 2-0 nail biter and Sunday shaped up in the same way until the top of the ninth. It was a slim 1-0 lead until Yelich uncorked one to center field. The 443-foot three-run shot provided plenty of insurance for closer Josh Hader. The Brewers are now three games back of the Cubs for the second NL Wild Card. The Brewers are home this week starting this afternoon with a short two-game interleague matchup with the Astros. They meet the Cubs again this weekend for four games beginning Thursday.

Algoma volleyball undefeated in Reedsville

The Wolves came into Friday 1-4 on the year and entered the weekend at 5-4. It was a good, if long, day in Reedsville. The team boarded the bus at 6 AM and wrapped up the day late in the evening with four wins in between. Algoma swept Roncalli 25-18, 25-22 before brooming Mishicot 25-20, 25-14. The final two matches went three sets with the Wolves prevailing in each. Algoma had to scramble to nip Two Rivers 13-25, 26-24, 27-25 and fought fatigue against the Reedsville Panthers 23-25, 25-23, 25-18 to win the Reedsville Invite. Algoma has a well-deserved break, they do not return to the court until Thursday against Sevastopol.

Algoma volleyball falls to West De Pere Thursday

After a 1-3 showing at the Oconto Invitational to start the year, Algoma’s early-season struggles continued Thursday against West De Pere. The Wolves dropped the match three sets to one; 16-25, 21-25, 25-23, 21-25. It was a hard-fought contest. In Oconto, Algoma had trouble returning serves at times but those woes did not crop up again in this match. Jacklyn Dean, Hanna Weise, and Sydney Zimmerman led the way with 10 kills for Algoma. Head coach Eric Dean noted last week that the team lacks size. Algoma had only four total blocks in the game. Algoma wrapped up the week with another tournament in Reedsville on Friday.

Packers receiver Equanimeous St. Brown out for season

Equanimeous St. Brown has been bitten by the sophomore slump due to injury. The second-year Packers receiver was placed on Injured Reserve Saturday as the Green and Gold finalized their 53-man roster for the 2019-2020 season. St. Brown suffered a high ankle sprain in the team’s third preseason game in Winnipeg against the Oakland Raiders. It was thought he would miss half the season and rumors were swirling it could be less than that. Saturday’s IR designation surprised most. NFL rules state that if a player is on the 53-man roster to start the season then moved to Injured Reserve, he can be brought back off it when the injury has healed. When a player is put on IR to start the year he must stay on it for the duration of the season.

Brewers blank Cubs to even series Saturday

Milwaukee took game two of their weekend series with the Cubs at Wrigley Saturday, 2-0. It wasn’t a traditional shutout though. Milwaukee used five pitchers who combined to allow just six hits. Zach Davies started but did not go deep enough into the game to record a win. The W went to Junior Guerra, his eighth of the season. Closer Josh Hader picked up the save going 1 2/3 innings. Not your traditional shutout. 


Milwaukee’s two runs came in the first inning. Catcher Manny Pina singled to center plating leadoff man Ben Gamel and Christian Yelich. The rubber match is Sunday afternoon at 1:20. Milwaukee trails the Cubs by four games in the NL Wild Card race.
