Sturgeon Bay soccer rolls into sectional final on 103.3 The Clipper

The Sturgeon Bay soccer team has now advanced to the sectional final after beating Lourdes Academy/Valley Christian 8-2 on a frigid night at Clark Field. Temperatures were in the 30s and the wind chill was around 20. Crews worked hard before the game to clear the snow off the pitch for hours.

 

It was even for about the first third of the game. Carson Dvorak started the scoring by putting in a goal in the 19th minute. The Knights answered five minutes later when Peter Chartier put one in the back of the net from just outside the box.

 

Twelve minutes past and Sturgeon Bay really turned it on. Dvorak scored his second goal of the game and then Spencer Hubbard scored 1:09 later. With just three seconds left in the half Eli Dietzel put in the fourth goal and the Clippers led 4-1 at the half. Owen Stevenson and Ben Luders scored two goals apiece in the second half before Lourdes/Valley Christian put in a goal late to make the final score 8-2.

 

The 2-seed Clippers will now travel to Kohler on Saturday to take on the number 1 seed Oostburg. The Flying Dutchmen prevented Kohler from hosting the sectional final game by beating them 4-1. Oostburg has not lost a game this season and has one tie. They've won 10 straight games. You can listen to the sectional final on 103.3 The Clipper and DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com starting with the pregame show at 12:30 PM and a 1 o'clock kickoff.

Bucks blow big first half lead

Sturgeon Bay soccer in sectional semi-finals on 103.3 The Clipper

Sturgeon Bay soccer hasn't really been tested in the playoffs so far but that figures to change on Thursday. The 2-seed Clippers will take on 6-seed Lourdes Academy/Valley Christian at home. The Knights upset 3-seed Winnebago Lutheran 1-0 on Saturday to earn a trip to Clark Field in Sturgeon Bay. Howards Grove and Omro, Sturgeon Bay's two playoff opponents, were outscored by the Clippers by a combined 14-0 in the regionals. Not only will Sturgeon Bay be playing a tough opponent but the weather could be a major factor as the field could be wet from snow and the temperature will be in the 30s.

 

The Clippers are led by Packerland Conference Player of the Year Adison Benzinger and 8 All-Conference players. Whoever wins this game will play the winner of Oostburg and Kohler in the sectional final on Saturday in Kohler.

The tip-off will be at 7 PM. The Phoenix won their first exhibition 54-41 over Michigan Tech on Thursday. UWGB will start the regular season next Wednesday when they travel to Central Michigan.

Packers stand pat at deadline

The NFL trade deadline came and went on Tuesday and the Packers decided to leave the team as it is. That makes sense as Green Bay is now 7-1 on the season which is tied for the second best record in the NFC, only behind the San Francisco 49ers. The New Orleans Saints are also 7-1. After coming off a 31-24 primetime win over the Chiefs, the Packers will play their second straight road game against an AFC West opponent. The Chargers welcome Green Bay to Los Angeles on Sunday for a 3:25 PM kickoff.

Weather could be big factor in playoffs

Door and Kewaunee County have three teams who will be playing outdoor playoff games this week and the weather could end up being a big factor in those games. Kewaunee football, Gibraltar football and Sturgeon Bay soccer will all have to deal with the elements. More snow is expected to fall in the area on Thursday and Friday and temperatures are forecasted to stay below 40 degrees both of those days.

 

Sturgeon Bay is scheduled to take on Lourdes Academy/Valley Christian on Thursday at home on Clark Field on 103.3 The Clipper. Kewaunee will play host to Chilton on 96.7 WBDK and Gibraltar will travel to Newman Catholic on 105.1 The Viking, both those games on Friday.


Phoenix men win exhibition

The Green Bay Phoenix men's basketball team had their first and only exhibition game on Monday night an picked up a victory over St. Norbert College 79-72.  Kameron Hankerson and Trevian Bell led UWGB with 16 points apiece. Joe Ciriacks had 18 for the Green Knights to lead all scorers.

 

The games will start to count in a week from Wednesday when the Phoenix travel to West Lafayette to take on 23rd-ranked Purdue for a 6 PM tip-off.

Five Clippers make All-Conference soccer

Sturgeon Bay almost had another perfect conference season and they led the Packerland with 5 players making the All-Conference First Team. Conference Player of the Year Adison Benzinger joins forwards Eli Dietzel and Owen Stevenson with midfielders Carson Dvorak and Trey Maas. Algoma put four players on the team led by their star goalkeeper Haakon Utesh. Gibraltar/Sevastopol put three on the team. 

 

Sturgeon Bay added three to the All-Conference Second Team while Gibraltar/Sevastopol had three as well. The Vikineers Kewaunee each had three players make Honorable Mention. 

Kewaunee with 5 all-conference football players

The Kewaunee Storm football team has the most players on the MONLPC First Team with 11 led by Conference Players of the Year Ryan Carmicheal and Tanor Bortolini. That was the most out of any team in the conference with Peshtigo putting six players on the team. Southern Door wound up with five on the First Team.

 

The Eagles did end up with 9 players making the All-Conference Second Team and two Honorable Mentions. Kewaunee had 6 Second Teamers and one Honorable Mention.

 

Tanor Bortolini took home both Offensive and Defensive Lineman of the Year Awards.

Bucks pick up first home win

A balanced scoring effort from the Bucks on Monday night helped them get their first home victory of the season over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Seven Bucks scored at least 14 points led by Khris Middleton's 21 and Milwaukee beat the Cavs 129-112. George Hill gave the Bucks a big boost off the bench scoring 19 points. It was an efficient offensive night for Milwaukee shooting 52% from the field and 45% from three-point range.

 

It was the Bucks first home victory of the season after the Miami Heat ruined the home-opener on Saturday in overtime. Milwaukee will head back on the road on Wednesday when they travel to Boston for a 6:30 PM tip-off.

Southern Door leads on All-Conference Team

After taking home a co-conference championship this season, Southern Door volleyball tied for the most players on the All-Packerland Conference First Team. The Eagles and Oconto had two players apiece gain those honors. Kendra Dantoin was the only unanimous choice on the team and Nicole Norton was chosen at the setter.

 

Sevastopol's Mya Ploor and Gibraltar's Agne Zukauskaite were named as all-around players on the First Team. Kewaunee's Katie Metzler earned a spot on the First Team as a front row player.

 

Cora Behnke on Oconto took home Conference Player of the Year.

Benzinger wins conference player of the year

It's hard to single out one great player from the rest on the Sturgeon Bay soccer team but one Clipper has taken home the Packerland Conference Player of the Year award. Defender Adison Benzinger has taken home the top award. Eli Dietzel also could have been considered for the award and he did join Benzinger on the All-Conference First Team.

 

Benzinger helped lead the Clippers to another Packerland Conference championship and an 11th straight regional title on Saturday. Sturgeon Bay hopes to keep their playoff run going on Thursday when they host Lourdes Academy/Valley Christian on Thursday. The game will be broadcast on 103.3 The Clipper starting at 6:30 PM.

Kewaunee players take home football hardware

Kewaunee football won the MONLPC this year so it's not a surprise to see their top players bring home awards in the conference. Ryan Carmicheal won Offensive Player of the Year and Tanor Bortolini took home Defensive Player of the Year honors.

 

Those two top players of the year will try to help lead the Storm in Level 2 of the Division 5 playoffs on Friday. The Storm will host Chilton on Friday in a game you can listen to on 96.7 WBDK.

Bucks look to bounce back

The Milwaukee Bucks had a really good opening night of the season but then couldn't keep that going in the home-opener. On Thursday, they knocked off the Rockets on the road 117-111 despite Giannis Antetokounmpo fouling out in the middle of the fourth quarter. He still notched a triple-double in the game.

 

The Bucks played their home-opener against the Miami Heat on Saturday. Giannis had a tip-in show at the buzzer to send the game into overtime but the Heat prevailed 131-126.

 

Milwaukee will try to get their first home win Monday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers who are also 1-1 to start the season. The tip-off is scheduled for 7 PM.

Packers win in primetime

If you are a Packer fan with both of Green Bay's main running backs in your fantasy lineup, you were smiling doubly on Sunday night. Aaron Jones and Jamal Williams each scored a pair of touchdowns to help the Packers to a victory over the Chiefs in Kansas City by a final score of 31-24. Jones's 67-yard touchdown off a screen pass with about eight minutes left to go gave the Packers the decisive score. Aaron Rodgers threw for three touchdowns, two to Jones and one to Williams. Jones ended up with 7 catches for 159 yards and added 67 yards on the ground.

 

It was supposed to be a matchup between Rodgers, a two-time MVP, Patrick Mahomes, the league's reigning MVP. Mahomes however dislocated his kneecap in a win over the Broncos on Thursday night last week. Matt Moore played well in his absence but not well enough to lead the Chiefs to a home victory.

 

The Packers are now 7-1 and will travel to Los Angeles to take on the Chargers on Sunday. The Chargers beat the Bears at Soldier Field 17-16 and are now 3-5 on the season.

Badgers pounded in Columbus

Wisconsin usually wins the battle of the run games but that was not the case on Saturday at Ohio State. In a showdown of top-15 teams, the Buckeyes ran for 264 against the Badgers while Wisconsin could only manage 83. Jonathan Taylor was held to 20 carries and 52 yards. Ohio State won 38-7.

 

It was close in the second half. Ohio State led 10-0 at the half and Wisconsin held the Buckeyes to a three-and-out. The Badgers blocked a punt and on the ensuing drive Jack Coan threw a 26-yard touchdown pass to A.J. Taylor to make it 10-7.

 

It was all Buckeyes after that as they scored touchdowns on their next four possessions.

 

This is now two road straight losses for the Badgers after they were upset by Illinois last week 24-23. They'll have a bye next week before hosting #20 Iowa on Saturday, November 9th. 

Cross country sectionals - Stenzel advances

All seven Door and Kewaunee County cross country teams competed in the sectionals on Saturday. One runner stood above the rest. Sevastopol's Olivia Stenzel finished in third at Manitowoc Lutheran to qualify for state. Her time was 19:56.1.

 

No other teams or individual runners qualified for state.

Sturgeon Bay cruises into sectionals on 103.3 The Clipper

For the 11th straight year, the Sturgeon Bay soccer team has captured a regional championship. The second-seeded Clippers came out strong against the 7-seed Omro on Saturday night and never let up for the full 90 minutes. Sturgeon Bay knocked off the Foxes 9-0 in a game broadcasted on 103.3 The Clipper and DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com.

 

The Clippers got the scoring going in the 8th minute when Dylan Burk set up CJ Fairchild for a goal. Burk again got the assist two minutes later to Carson Dvorak. Spencer Hubbard scored the final goal in the first half in the 16th minute on a feed from Dvorak.

 

Sturgeon Bay kept the pressure up in the second half scoring 6 goals in total. Another goal from Spencer Hubbard and a goal apiece from Ben Lueders and Owen Stevenson got the score to 6-0. Eli Dietzel would then add a hat trick in the final 29 minutes of the game.

 

Dylan Burk was all over the pitch and Head Coach Todd Maas praised him in the postgame show. He assisted on four goals and helped set up a couple of others plus played great defense on the Foxes' star player Trevor Molitor.

 

Sturgeon Bay will move on to the sectionals and will play 6-seed Lourdes Academy/Valley Christian. The Knights upset 3-seed Winnebago Lutheran 1-0. Sturgeon Bay will host the game at Clark Field on Thursday. The pregame show will begin at 6:30 PM on 103.3 The Clipper and DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com.

Luxemburg-Casco eliminated from soccer tournament

Luxemburg-Casco High School's boys soccer team fell to (5) Sheboygan Falls at home Saturday afternoon. Sheboygan Falls never trailed in the match. The Falcons were up 2-1 at halftime and netted the first three goals of the second stanza. The final was 5-2. Cody Arendt in the 13th minute and Matthew Conway in the 73rd minute were the tallies for Luxemburg-Casco in the contest. L-C was a four seed in the Division 3 tournament bracket so the result was a mild upset.


Sheboygan Falls will take on (1) Seymour on Halloween.

 

Packerland cross country squads in sectionals

Local cross country teams will be running in Manitowoc Saturday in the WIAA Division 3 Sectional. There are actually two divisions running at the same location. Division 1 gets precedence running first. The girls Division 1 race begins at 11 AM and should be wrapped up in about a half hour. Girls D3 is scheduled to start at 11:30 AM. In the afternoon, the boys run with Division 3 again being the second race starting at 12:45 PM.

 

Last week, the Packerland Conference held its Championship Meet. Peshtigo and Kewaunee tied for first with Southern Door a very close third. Kewaunee won the girls meet with Sturgeon Bay second.

Three area teams take court Saturday

Three Door Peninsula high school volleyball teams are still alive for Saturday night action in the WIAA postseason tournament. The highest seed, and the only home team, is Luxemburg-Casco. The (1) Spartans had a bye in the first round Tuesday. If there was any rust it didn't show against Oconto Falls. L-C won in straight sets Thursday night 25-15, 25-13, 25-14. Saturday they play (4) Freedom. Both teams are out of the North Eastern Conference so they have played each other this season. L-C took that matchup in Freedom in straight sets. Freedom knocked out Sturgeon Bay in the second round in a match that could have gone either way. The Clippers won the first set 25-21 and were within mere points of taking the second, 25-27. Once the momentum swung, the Irish rolled in sets three and four.


Southern Door, fresh off their first shared Packerland conference championship in school history, are looking for some postseason hardware in Division 3. The Eagles are a four seed and travel Saturday to face Howard's Grove. The Eagles won a hard-fought match Thursday against St. Mary's Springs, 18-25, 25-20, 19-25, 27-25, 15-10. Howard's Grove has won both its tournament matches in straight sets, knocking out Algoma, 25-14, 25-15, 25-10, in the second round.


In Division 4, Gibraltar has rolled so far but the (2) Vikings must travel for Saturday's match to Hustisford. Gibraltar has won in straight sets the first two rounds. Given that the Vikings face almost exclusively Division 2 and Division 3 competition in the regular season, they are battle tested. That has proven advantageous in the Division 4 tournament in the early rounds.

 

Sturgeon Bay playoff soccer v. Omro on 103.3 The Clipper

Sturgeon Bay soccer will try to win another regional championship on Saturday when they host Omro. The Foxes come in as a 7-seed after they came from behind to beat Kiel on Thursday 2-1.

Seymour won 10-0 in the first round. 
 

Gibraltar wins instant classic on 105.1 The Viking

Gibraltar captured its first playoff victory in school history Friday night in a 30-28 nailbiter against Suring on 105.1 The Viking.

 

After a scoreless first quarter,  the Vikings scored twice on a pair of Luke Steebs touchdown passes to his running backs, Brandon Stillman and Alex Laughlin. The Eagles' star running back Logan  Stuart showed why he was the conference's top rusher, scoring his first of four touchdowns to cut the lead to 16-8 at the break. After Steebs found Laughlin for a second touchdown from 64 yards,  a face-mask penalty ignited an Eagles comeback with two unanswered scores from Stuart. The Vikings would see a penalty swing the momentum back in their favor when Laughlin drew a pass interference penalty on fourth down to extend the drive. Laughlin would later take a pitch from Steebs and find Sam Lindenberg in the endzone to extend a lead to 30-20. The Eagles would strike back quickly thanks to long kickoff return by Dequez Sepulveda and Stuart's fourth touchdown of the game. With the ball inside the 10 with under a minute remaining, the Vikings were able to turn the Eagles away one final time with Connor Duffy getting a game-clinching sack.

 

The Vikings will be back in action next  Friday night on the road against Newman Catholic. 105,1 The Viking will have the call beginning at 6:30 p.m. with the pregame show followed by kickoff at 7 p.m.

The # 2 seeded Kewaunee Storm pulled out a 36-35 thriller on Friday night against the # 7 seeded Omro Foxes in a Division 5 Level 1 football playoff in Kewaunee.  Kewaunee senior quarterback Ryan Carmichael scored on a two-point conversion with :28 seconds left in the game to carry the Storm to victory.  Omro capitalized on Kewaunee mistakes in the first half to take a 13-0 lead, but the Storm scored on a 1-yard pass from Carmichael with just :16 seconds left to gain momentum going into intermission.

 


The second half saw Kewaunee take their first lead in the game on an 8 yard run by Kudick to take a 14-13 lead with 6:34 left in the third quarter.  That set up one of the most exciting and high scoring 4th quarters ever which saw three touchdowns scored in just :30 seconds. 

 

With 8:36 left in the game, Omro scored on a two-yard run which was followed by a Kewaunee  61 yard touchdown run by Carmichael.  The Foxes answered with 8:06 left in the game on a 59-yard touchdown pass completion to take a 28-21 lead.  Kewaunee then tied up the game with just over five minutes left on Carmichael's second TD run from 15 yards.  Omro answered with a five-yard run by quarterback Ben Wellhoefer to make it 35-28 with 3:17 left. The Storm then drove down for the final score on a nine-yard pass from Carmichael to Owen Kudick.  Coach Randy Charles of Kewaunee then gambled and went for a two-point conversion.  Carmichael came through for the Storm by rolling out on a quarterback option and stretching the ball over the goal line to give Kewaunee the decisive 36-35 final.  

 


Carmichael finished unofficially 21-28 passing for 268 yards with two touchdowns while rushing for 101 yards on 11 carries and two TDs. 

 


Kewaunee will now host Chilton next Friday night in the Division 5 Level 2 playoffs.  Pregame on WBDK 96.7 FM is set for 6:30 with Coach Charles and kickoff at 7 pm.  The game will also be streamed on DoorCountyDailyNews.com.

Gibraltar embraces rematch on 105.1 The Viking

"One better" than last year has been preached since the first practice of the season, and the Gibraltar Vikings will look to do that as they open the 2019 WIAA Eight-Man Football Playoffs on 105.1 The Viking Friday night.

 

The Vikings will travel to Suring for their Level 1 tilt, a rematch of its 43-24 win over the Eagles during the third week of the season. Key to that win was being able to handle Logan Stuart better than almost any other team in the state, limiting him to 114 yards. Gibraltar head coach Mike Peck says even though the offense is evolved over the course of the season, controlling Stuart's impact is key.

 

Tim Kowols and Grant Dossetto will have the call on 105.1 The Viking beginning at 6:30 p.m. with the pre-game show followed by kickoff at 7 p.m. You can also follow the action by streaming the game at DoorCountyDailyNews.com, DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com, and the DoorCountyDailyNews.com mobile app.

Kewaunee Storm hosts Omro in playoffs on WBDK

The Storm defeated Omro 26-13 last month in a non-conference game In Kewaunee.  Kewaunee (8-1) won the MONLPC- Large Conference last week with a 35-8 win over Peshtigo.  The Foxes (3-6) managed to become playoff eligible by virtue of going 3-3 in the Wisconsin Flyway Conference.  Quarterback Ryan Carmichael led the Storm offensively this year with nearly 1300 yards passing and 14 touchdowns through the air.  Omro relies on a strong rushing attack that saw running back Ben Wellhoefer gain 1048 yards on the ground.  The pregame show with Coach Randy Charles is set for 6:30 pm on WBDK 96.7 FM with kickoff set for 7pm.  Matt Piesler and Paul Schmitt will handle the play-by-play for the game which will also be streamed on DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com.  

 

Sturgeon Bay soccer easily advances on 103.3 The Clipper

The Sturgeon Bay soccer team had no problem winning their first playoff game knocking off Howards Grove 5-0 at Clark Field. The game was broadcasted on 103.3 The Clipper and DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com. Two-seed Sturgeon Bay did what they needed to against the 15-seed Tigers to pull out a victory. Howards Grove was playing strong defense early in the match until Sturgeon Bay got an easy wide-open net goal after the goalkeeper and defender miscommunicated on a ball. DJ Lenius was able to take advantage in the 25th minute.

 

Eli Dietzel added a goal in the 33rd minute and the Clippers led 2-0 at halftime.

 

Sturgeon Bay then added three goals in the span of six minutes in the second half. Dietzel scored again in the 61st minute and Ben Lueders put one past Howards Grove goalkeeper Ben Taylor in the 65th and then again in the 66th minute.

Sturgeon Bay Gibraltar soccer rained out again

It just wasn't meant to be for Sturgeon Bay taking on Gibraltar/Sevastopol in soccer at Clark Field in 2019. For the third time, their matchup was rained out on Monday.

Kewaunee's soccer season ends

Kewaunee's hopes of getting a rematch with Packerland Conference rival Sturgeon Bay were dashed on Tuesday night when they lost their opening-round game of the playoffs to Howards Grove 7-1. The Storm was the 18-seed and played on the road to 15-seed Howards Grove. This means that Sturgeon Bay will begin their playoff run on Thursday night at home against the Tigers.

Young Sevastopol team looking towards 2020

Only one senior suited up for the Sevastopol football team in their final game against Wabeno/Laona on Friday. The Pioneers lost that game 54-14 which was broadcasted on 104.1 WRLU and DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com. Arthur Hocevar was the lone senior on the field as the other two, Caden Kacmarynski and Triston Beauchamp, were both hurt. With the lack of experience, Sevastopol was not able to repeat the success of 2018 when they won a state championship. Head Coach Ron Frank talks about what those three seniors have meant to the Pioneer football program.

 

 

Sevastopol started a number of sophomores the whole season and improved throughout the season. The Pioneers lost their first four games before a three-game winning streak in the middle of the season. They lost their final two contests against co-conference champion Gibraltar and another really good team in Wabeno/Laona. Coach Frank has already talked with his assistants about their plans for next season which should be an improvement on the 2019 campaign.

 

 

Opening round of WIAA Volleyball Tournament kicks off

The journey to Green Bay begins Tuesday with several Packerland Conference teams opening WIAA Tournament play.

Algoma scored a first-round home match against Brillion setting up a potential match up against top-seeded Howards Grove or Kohler. Sevastopol will hit the road to face Manitowoc Lutheran with an opportunity to play either Oostburg or Winnebago Lutheran Academy.

 

Division 4 features Gibraltar hosting a regional matchup against Oneida Nation with hopes of hosting another regional game on the 24th against either Valley Christian or Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah. 

Gibraltar a tale of two teams

When Suring takes a look at film this week ahead of their playoff matchup, they will see a vastly different Gibraltar football team offensively.  In their September 6th matchup, the Vikings threw for 267 yards and three touchdowns en route to a 43-24 victory over the Eagles. The Vikings went on to post the conference’s best passing numbers on the year. The last three weeks, however, the Vikings have only thrown for 210 yards total, but have averaged 254 yards a contest rushing in the meantime. Gibraltar head coach Mike Peck credits their improving option game for being able to handle tough pass defenses and bad weather conditions.

The Gibraltar Vikings will travel to Suring for its first-round playoff matchup against the Eagles. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. will be broadcast on 105.1 The Viking and streamed on DoorCountyDailyNews.com, DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com, and the DoorCountyDailyNews.com mobile app.

Kewaunee soccer looks to keep season alive

L-C wrestling meeting postponed

Luxemburg-Casco wrestlers and their families will have to wait another day to get the full story on the upcoming season.

 

Monday's power outage in Luxemburg postponed the planned meeting by the team's coaches for youth, middle school, and high school wrestlers. The meeting, which will be rescheduled, will cover fundraising efforts and an update on the program's new wrestling room before breaking up into three individual team sessions.

 

A new date will be announced at a later time.

Green Bay women's basketball opens season Thursday

The Green Bay Phoenix women's basketball team hopes to start a new conference championship streak when they open the season Thursday with an exhibition contest against Michigan Tech.

 

The Phoenix earned the spot of preseason co-favorite along with last year's conference champion Wright State when those honors were announced last week. Guard Frankie Wurtz was named to the conference's first-team. The Phoenix still enter the season in unfamiliar territory as they enter the season not as the defending conference champion for the first time in 20 years. They will also have a second exhibition game at the Kress Event Center on October 30th against UW-Oshkosh before traveling to Mount Pleasant, Mich. to battle Central Michigan in the regular-season opener. Thursday's exhibition against Michigan Tech begins at 7 p.m.

Volleyball teams prepare for WIAA tournament

With conference play officially in the rear-view mirror, area high school volleyball teams are in do-or-die mode for the rest of the season.

 

Luxemburg-Casco was the only team fortunate to get a bye to Thursday's action with all Packerland Conference teams playing on Tuesday. One of those teams is Gibraltar, which dropped their first conference tournament match against Oconto on Saturday. Vikings head coach Woody Heidler says it is important to get the momentum rolling to have success in the post-season.

 

Gibraltar will host Oneida Nation at 7 p.m. on Tuesday in Fish Creek. You can click here for the rest of the first-round matchups for the area's volleyball teams.

Vikineers, Clippers soccer look to dodge rain drops

Even with Gibraltar/Sevastopol winning the last match-up against Sturgeon Bay 1-0, it has been Mother Nature leading the series on the soccer pitch this season.

 

The Vikineers and the Clippers will try for a third time this season to get the Sturgeon Bay half of the home-and-home series with rain claiming the first two attempts. Rain is in the forecast once again this evening, but if the two sides can get it in, the match will begin at 7 p.m.

Spartans cross country finish top-half of NEC

The Luxemburg-Casco cross country teams did well in their final tune-up before this week's sectional meets with the boys finishing in fourth and the girls coming in third.

Rodgers accounts for 6 TD's over Raiders

Aaron Rodgers had his best game of the Matt LeFleur era by accounting for six touchdowns in a 42-24 win over the Raiders at Lambeau Field on Sunday. Green Bay is now 6-1 on the season. Rodgers threw for five touchdowns to five different receivers and also ran in a score. He finished 25-31, 429 yards, 5 touchdowns and no interceptions. Marquez Valdes-Scantling led the team in receiving with 2 catches for 133 yards and a touchdown. Jimmy Graham, Jake Kumerow, Aaron Jones and Jamal Williams each caught a touchdown as well.

The Packers now have a showdown with the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night. Kansas City will be without the league's reigning MVP Pat Mahomes who dislocated his kneecap in a win over the Broncos on Thursday night. The game will be played at Arrowhead Field with the kickoff at 7:20 PM.

Kewaunee and Gibraltar get seeds in football playoffs

One Door and one Kewaunee County football qualified for the state playoffs this season and both know who they will be playing in the first round.

 

In 11-man football, Kewaunee has a two-seed in Division 5 in Group B. The Storm will host 7-seeded Omro on Friday in a game you can listen to on 96.7 WBDK and DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com. If Kewaunee wins on Friday they will play the winner of (3) Chilton and (6) Wittenberg-Birnamwood.

If the Vikings can beat Suring again they will take on the winner of (1) Newman Catholic and (4) Marion/Tigerton. You can listen to the broadcast of the game on Friday on 105.1 The Viking and DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com.

Badgers blow lead at Illinois

The only time Wisconsin trailed in their game at Illinois on Saturday was when there were all zeroes on the clock when the game ended. Wisconsin led the Fighting Illini 20-7 after Jonathan Taylor ran for a touchdown at the beginning of the third quarter. For the rest of the game, the Badgers missed a field goal, lost a fumble and threw an interception allowing Illinois a chance to come back and they did. James McCourt hit a 39-yard field goal as time expired to give Illinois an upset victory. The final score was 24-23.

 

Wisconsin's playoff hopes may have been dashed after this loss to an Illini team that came into the game at 2-4 overall. The Badgers have a chance to get back in the playoff hunt on Saturday when they travel to fourth-ranked undefeated Ohio State.

Algoma High School's football team ended the year with a familiar result Friday night, another shutout. The Wolves defeated Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah 32-0 to finish the season with eight wins to just one loss. Algoma High School's enrollment is too big to qualify for the eight-player football postseason but the Wolves rank in the top 5 in the state according to multiple polls.

He ran it in from 14 and 39 yards respectively. .

Southern Door football ends season with loss

Southern Door High School's football team ended the 2019 season with a whimper at Bonduel, losing 42-0. It took until the 3rd quarter for the Eagles to pick up a first down and they never found the end zone. Bonduel got on the board early in the first quarter, forcing a three-and-out from Southern Door before marching down the field. Quarterback Cole Letter found Carson Robaidek from 32 yards out. Isaac Banker ran it in from the 2 yard line with 2:31 left in the opening frame. 


Max Sokolski had two touchdown runs in the second quarter to put Bonduel up 28-0 at half. A Dylan Springborn interception return and Logan Majewski touchdown run were the only points of the second half. One of the lone highlights for Southern Door was an Alex Daoust interception.

Spartans post-season hopes dashed with 30-22 loss to Wrightstown on WBDK

Luxemburg-Casco fought hard but came up short Friday night with a 30-22 loss to the Wrightstown Tigers in a North Eastern Conference regular-season finale. 

 

The Spartans fell behind early as Wrightstown scored on their first three offensive drives.  Tailing 14-0 after one quarter, the Spartans were able to get on the board with 11:17 left in the second quarter on a one-yard run by running back Reece Worachek. 

 

Wrightstown led 21-7 at halftime before Spartan quarterback Matt Cravillion scored from 3 yards out to close the gap to 21-14. 

 

 

The Tigers scored twice to take a 30-14 lead early in the fourth quarter before the Spartans made a late rally with a 12 yard run from Worachek to get within eight points but could not capitalize on two Wrightstown fumbles in the final five minutes.  The Spartans were denied with 36 seconds left on fourth and goal from the one-yard line when Worachek slipped after the hand-off and was stopped short of the goal line.

 

The Spartans (3-5, 3-6 overall) will now miss the playoffs for the first time in seven years.  Wrightstown (7-1, 7-2 overall) will now wait for the seeding after finishing second in the North Eastern Conference.

Running game leads Gibraltar to crown on 105.1 The Viking

The Gibraltar Vikings relied on its running game to capture its first football conference crown in 45 years Friday night, defeating the host Wausaukee Rangers 42-13.

 

The Vikings got off to a 16-0 lead in the first quarter thanks to rushing touchdowns from Luke Steebs and Alex Laughlin. After the Rangers' Hayden Reinkow found Brandon Shigouri for a 20-yard touchdown pass, Laughlin found the endzone again from 20 yards out on the ground to make it 22-6 at the break. Laughlin would get his third rushing touchdown of the game on a circus-like recovery of his own fumble for the only score in the third quarter. After the Vikings' Brandon Stillman punched in one touchdown from the one-yard line to open the fourth quarter, Reinkow would score one of his own from the same distance for the Rangers. Sam Lindenberg threw a touchdown pass to Spencer Krause to end the scoring for the evening with less than a minute remaining in the game.

 

The Vikings eclipsed the 300 yard mark rushing as a team for the second time in as many weeks, led by Laughin's 170 yards. The Vikings must now wait to see who, where and when they will play as the playoff field gets set on Saturday.

Sevastopol drops homecoming game on 104.1 WRLU

The Sevastopol football team played hard in front of a big homecoming crowd on Friday night against Wabeno-Laona but couldn't come up with a victory in the final game of the season. The Rebels knocked off Sevastopol 54-14 ending the Pioneers state title defense. Sevastopol's defense had a hard time stopping the dynamic running duo of Ethan Westimayer and Connor Taylor for Wabeno/Laona. They both scored four touchdowns with two of Taylor's coming on kickoff returns.

 

The Pioneers had a couple of big plays of their own on offense. Logan Beyer caught a 67 yard touchdown pass from Jack DeYoung who was in the game replacing the injured Triston Beauchamp. Spencer Evenson had a 35 yard touchdown run in the second half. He finished with 25 carries for 142 yards and reached the 1,000 yard mark on the season.

 

Sevastopol emptied the playbook for the final game of the season and they all ended in interceptions. A flea flicker in the first half was picked off. Both of Spencer Evenson's passes were intercepted in the game including a jump pass attempt down near the goal line.

 

Sevastopol only lined up with three seniors on the squad this season and they were all honored at halftime along with other accomplished Sevastopol senior athletes. Only one of those three suited up in the final game and that was Arthur Hocevar. Triston Beauchamp and Caden Kacmarynski were both out with injuries. 

 

Sevastopol Head Coach Ron Frank said in the postgame show on 104.1 WRLU that he expected his team to have growing pains this season after losing so much off of last year's state championship team. But with the Pioneers only losing three players off the team, the 2020 campaign could be a strong one.

 

Algoma football wraps up season on road

Algoma High School's football team ends their first eight-player season on the road Friday night at Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah. Elkhart Lake enters the contest 4-4 and features a unique mascot. It may be the only time in program history that the Algoma Wolves have had to take on a team calling themselves the Resorters. As their record would suggest, it has been an up-and-down season for Elkhart Lake but they have strung together three consecutive wins at one point. The Resorters boast an upset win over Oakfield, a state-ranked team at the time. They also played Newman Catholic tough, losing 28-14.


Algoma's only loss was to Newman Catholic and have rolled since. Last week at St. Mary Catholic the Wolves gave up the first score of the game and followed it up with 54 unanswered. At 7-1, it has been a very successful transition to eight-player football for the Wolves.

Cross country recap: Kewaunee captures conference crown

The Kewaunee girls cross country team was the big winner at Thursday's Packerland Conference championships held by Gibraltar.

The Storm boys' team actually tied Peshtigo at 64 points, but the title was given to Peshtigo based on criteria. Southern Door was not far off the pace itself, scoring 67 points to take third. Southern Door's Sam Dean posted the fastest local time, running a 17:38 to finish in fifth.

Volleyball recap: Luxemburg-Casco sweeps Marinette

While the area's Packerland Conference teams prepare for Saturday's championships, Luxemburg-Casco hit the court for one of its final tune-ups before WIAA Tournament action begins.

 

The Spartans swept Marinette 3-0, not allowing the Marines to even hit double digits by winning their sets by scores of 25-5, 25-4, and 25-5. It was a balanced night of offense for the Spartans with Hannah Derenne registering six aces and four kills while Holly Baierl and Grace Holschuh  each adding at least five kills of their own. Bekah Day led the Spartans from the setter position with 17 assists on the evening.

Gibraltar chase conference crown on 105.1 The Viking

The first conference crown in 45 years is on the line Friday night when the Gibraltar Vikings battle the Wausaukee Rangers on 105.1 The Viking.

 

The Vikings are tied with Suring for the MONLPC-EIght-Man Conference lead and need a win to keep pace after the Eagles blew out Three Lakes last night 70-24. The Rangers are almost like looking at a mirror offensively with Hayden Renikow trailing the Vikings' Luke Steebs for the passing yards lead and Brandon Shigouri behind Alex Laughlin for the receiving yards title. After losing their first six games, the Rangers have won two straight. This gives Gibraltar head coach Mike Peck more reason to make sure his team stays focused for Friday night and not look ahead to their playoff berth.

Tim Kowols will be on the call from Wausaukee on 105.1 The Viking with the pre-game show beginning at 6:30 p.m. followed by kickoff at 7 p.m. The game is also available streaming at DoorCountyDailyNews.com and DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com.

Sevastopol plays homecoming game on 104.1 WRLU

Sevastopol football's last game this season is homecoming and you can listen to it on 104.1 WRLU. The Pioneers will be taking on Wabeno/Laona. Sevastopol is coming off a 36-14 loss to Gibraltar last week in a game that was closer than the final score indicates. It was a one-score game with six minutes left to play before the Vikings pulled away at the end. That loss ended Sevastopol's three-game winning streak.

 

Wabeno/Laona is coming off a 38-6 non-conference victory over Three Lakes last week. They are led by their senior running back and defensive back Ethan Westimayer. He's rushed for over 800 yards this season and picked off two passes as well.

 

Spencer Evenson has a chance to rush for over 1,000 yards on the season if he gains 123 yards on the ground.

 

Jonathan Bregman and Tim Ash will be on the call on 104.1 WRLU and DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com. The pregame show will begin at 6:30 PM and kickoff at 7.

Southern Door football closes out 2019 season

Southern Door High School's football team ends the season on the road in a non-conference game against Bonduel. The two teams have just one common opponent in Peshtigo. Southern Door fell at Peshtigo last week 42-27 while the Bears were victorious against them in Week Two, 54-0. Bonduel is another power running team. They average 180 yards per game on the ground. Southern Door has struggled against that this season with a young defensive line. The Bears enter the game with a 6-2 record.


For Southern Door, they will look to counter with some newly found balance. Quarterbacks Marcus Marchant and Alex Daoust the past two weeks have had success through the air. Freshman receiver Jack Peterson has been their favorite target, or at least the most explosive. On the ground, running back Nick Baudhuin is always a threat.

Packers tip Lions on late FG

Detroit's Matt Prater kicked five field goals but it was Mason Crosby's third of the night that gave the Green Bay Packers the 23-22 victory over the rival Lions.

 

It did not look good from the very beginning for the Packers as they were outscored 10-0 in the first quarter thanks in part to two long passing plays from the Lions' Matt Stafford. The Packers got on the scoreboard late in the second quarter down 13-0 thanks to five-yard pitch play to Jamaal Williams and Crosby's first field goal of the night. The Lions would hit three more field goals before calls started to tilt in favor of the Packers. One helped set up a 35-yard touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers to reserve wide receiver Allen Lazard and another helped set up the game-winning field goal.

 

The Packers have a short week to prepare for their next opponent, the Oakland Raiders. That is a noon start at Lambeau Field.

Gibraltar/Sevastopol pulls massive upset over Sturgeon Bay on 103.3 The Clipper

The Sturgeon Bay boys soccer team had not lost a Packerland Conference game since joining the league in the 2017 season...until Monday night. Gibraltar/Sevastopol scored a goal in the 6th minute in the game and then held on the final 84 minutes to come away with a 1-0 shocking upset victory. The game was broadcasted on 103.3 The Clipper and DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com. Kiegan Sargent knocked a shot past Clipper goalkeeper Joe Wind for the only score of the match.

 

Sturgeon Bay Head Coach Todd Maas was worried before the game about his team coming out flat after picking up a big victory on Saturday on the road against Notre Dame in Green Bay. He also said the team doesn't ever seem to play well at Gibraltar and both worries ended up being legitimate. Sturgeon Bay was also without their star forward Eli Dietzel who was out with a hip flexor injury. Coach Maas hopes to have him back for when the playoffs begin next Thursday.

 

Sturgeon Bay had a rush of good goal-scoring opportunities in the last 25 minutes or so of the game but couldn't put a ball past Viking goalkeeper Hayden Hoffman who was always in the right position to make a save.

Gibraltar had to rely on its ground game to get past its county rival Sevastopol Friday night, winning 36-14 on 105.1 The Viking.

 

The cold, wet, and windy conditions kept the Vikings' air game grounded, but their only completion seemed to help the offense settle into the game.

Luke Steebs would add another touchdown at the end of the half to make it 16-0 at the break.

Clipper soccer with big non-conference matchup on 103.3 The Clipper

Sturgeon Bay soccer hasn't had much of a problem in the Packerland Conference so the Clippers are going out of their league for a tougher matchup.

Spartans fall to Mustangs 6-0 in OT on WBDK

In a defensive-dominated game, the Luxemburg-Casco Spartans lost in overtime to the Little Chute Mustangs 6-0 at the Luxemburg-Casco Sports Complex.  With less than ideal field conditions, both teams relied heavily on their rushing attacks all evening long.  The Spartans had numerous opportunities in the first half to get on the board, including a missed field goal in the first quarter and quarterback Matt Cravillion was stopped at the one yard line as time expired in the first half.  


 Both teams played a field position game in the second half with the Spartans getting down to the Little Chute 15 yard line in the final minute only to lose ten yards on two plays before kicker John Larson slipped and missed a 40 yard field goal at the end of regulation.
In the overtime, Mustang running back Jacob Debruin scored on a two yard run to give the Mustangs the 6-0 lead.  The Spartans could not muster any positive yardage on their first three plays in overtime and a desperation pass on 4th down by Owen Deprez fell short in the end zone to end the game.


The Spartans outgained the Mustangs 261-184 in total yards as Cravillion and Reece Worachek combined for 189 yards in rushing but it was not enough as Little Chute defense bended but did not break all night.  


Luxemburg-Casco (3-4, 3-5 overall) will now travel to Wrightstown next Friday in a must-win game to keep their slim playoff hopes alive.

Sevastopol winning streak ends on 104.1 WRLU

The Sevastopol Pioneers football team had a couple of three-game winning streaks that came to an end on Friday night at Gibraltar in a game broadcasted on 104.1 WRLU and 105.1 The Viking. Sevastopol was coming into the contest winning three in a row after starting the season off 0-4. The Pioneers also had taken three in a row from their rival Gibraltar. On a cold, wet, windy night Gibraltar prevailed 36-14.

 

Sevastopol was able to force three Gibraltar turnovers after forcing five last week. But the Vikings were able to get enough offense from their running attack with Alex Laughlin and Luke Steebs each running for over 150 yards.

 

After a scoreless first quarter, Gibraltar got two touchdown runs in the second quarter from the quarterback Steebs. Sevastopol finally got on the board in the third quarter after the Pioneers recovered a fumble deep in Gibraltar territory. Spencer Evenson ran in a touchdown from five yards out. Alex Laughlin got a touchdown run for Gibraltar to extend the lead to 22-8. Triston Beauchamp brought Sevastopol back within one score with a touchdown run of this own. Gibraltar was able to seal the game with two late touchdowns to pull out a victory that probably wasn't as lopsided as the final score might indicate.

 

Sevastopol is now 3-5 overall on the season and 3-4 in the MONLPC. The Pioneers have a chance to get back to .500 in the conference with a home win next week against Wabeno/Laona. That game will be on 104.1 WRLU and DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com. The pregame show will begin at 6:30 PM and kickoff at 7.

Aaron Rodgers was steady again throwing for over 230 yards even without a touchdown pass. Green Bay was missing Pro Bowl receiver Devante Adams.


The Packer defense was stifling again until Green Bay had built a 31-3 lead. It got a bit dicey late but a missed 33-yard field goal from Dallas kicker Brett Maher wide right with under two minutes to go sealed the deal.


Green Bay remains in first in the NFC North and will Detroit next Monday night. The Lions had a bye in Week Five and are 2-1-1 on the season.

Davante Adams confirmed out against Dallas

Denmark spoils Spartan's homecoming 42-28 on WBDK

The Luxemburg-Casco Spartans had their homecoming spoiled with a 42-28 loss to the Denmark Vikings Friday night.  The Vikings controlled the line of scrimmage and the time of possession most of the evening as the Spartans could not overcome a strong Viking rushing attack.  


Denmark scored first on a three-yard run by Gabriel Wertel on the opening drive to take a 7-0 lead.  A 19-yard pass from Spartan's quarterback Matt Cravillion to running back Reece Worachek tied the score at 7-7 to close the scoring in the first quarter.

Kewaunee football downs Southern Door on 102.1

The Kewaunee High School football team used a potent first half offense to run away from Southern Door Friday night. Kewaunee took the opening drive for a touchdown in only 95 seconds with Owen Kudick running in from 12 yards out. Southern Door matched Kewaunee with a touchdown of their own on the Eagles' opening possession. Jack Peterson caught a 15-yard strike on a post pattern from quarterback Marcus Marchant. The extra point failed.


The scoring stopped for Southern Door after that. That wasn't the case for Kewaunee. The Storm's second drive took just three minutes ending in a Jack Severin one-yard TD run. Severin ran it in again with 7:22 left in the second quarter from 34 yards out. Kewaunee went up 28-6 on a 50-yard bubble screen catch-and-run to Benjamin Heim.


In the second half Kewaunee scored two touchdowns, both in the fourth quarter. Jason Selner intercepted Marchant returning it to the Southern Door five. Ryan Carmichael snuck it in from a yard out. Severin scored again for Kewaunee with under 40 seconds to go. The final was 42-6.

Algoma runs past Gibraltar on 105.1 The Viking

Algoma's power running game proved to be too much for Gibraltar as the Wolves topped the Vikings 46-22 on 105.1 The Viking.

 

The two teams traded turnovers at the game's outset, but it was the Wolves that capitalized first when Brett Benesh followed his interception of Luke Steebs's first interception with a touchdown run. Steebs' second interception proved to be even more costly when Carter Zimmerman took a tipped pass for six to make 14-0 at the end of the first quarter. After Zimmerman scored a touchdown on the offensive side of the ball, the Vikings' Alex Laughlin scored on a 65-yard kickoff return. Jordan Deringer capped the first half scoring with a touchdown from 50-plus yards out to make it 30-6 at the break. Zimmerman and Deringer would each score a touchdown to start off the third quarter before the Vikings scored a pair of touchdowns on a Steebs scramble and a pass to Brandon Stillman.

 

The Wolves improve to 6-1 ahead of their road trip to face St. Mary Catholic. The 5-2 Vikings return to Fish Creek Friday night to face county rival Sevastopol on 105.1 The Viking beginning at 6:30 p.m. with the pregame show followed by kickoff at 7 p.m.

 

 

 

 

Forcing turnovers key to Pioneer victory

The defense forcing turnovers was the key to the Sevastopol High School football team's victory over Lena/St. Thomas Aquinas on 104.1 WRLU. It was a chilly night at Sevastopol High School and the Pioneers picked up a 42-14 victory. Caden Kacmarynski recovered a fumble in the first quarter and ran it in for a touchdown for the first turnover and score of the game. Tommy Giblin intercepted a pass and recovered a fumble in the first half. Alex Valdivia also intercepted a pass in the second quarter. Cesar Sandoval sealed the game in the fourth quarter with an interception for the fifth and final turnover.

 

Triston Beauchamp threw for two touchdowns to Spencer Evenson and also ran for one. Evenson would later run in a touchdown as well. Jack DeYoung came in at the end of the fourth quarter and threw a touchdown to Logan Beyer. 

 

It was the third victory in a row for the Pioneers after starting the season off 0-4. Sevastopol will try to make it four in a row next week when they travel north to Gibraltar.

Southern Door football hosts Kewaunee Friday

Southern Door High School football enters Friday's game at 3-3 needing a win over Kewaunee to remain in the chase for a postseason berth. The Eagles started slow losing their first two games of the year against Winneconne and Wausau East. The middle of the season has been a hot-and-cold stretch with easy victories sandwiching a blowout loss at Coleman. Working in the Eagles favor is the forfeit victory last week against Sturgeon Bay which acts as a de facto bye week. Southern Door has had 14 days to focus on the Storm.


Southern Door will rely on another big game from Nick Baudhuin on the ground. The Eagles defense will have to contend with a balanced Kewaunee offensive attack. Storm quarterback Ryan Carmichael can hand off to running back Owen Kudick or deliver passes to Max Hanrahan and Benjamin Heim.

Milwaukee got two in the first thanks to a Yasmani Grandal home run. The Brewers tacked on one in the second from an Eric Thames bomb to centerfield and still held a 3-1 advantage late. Juan Soto hit a single to right field in the bottom of the eighth that went under the glove of Trent Grisham. Because of the fielding error, one of two Milwaukee had on the night, three runs scored on the single.  


Lorenzo Cain singled in the top of the ninth but the Crew could do no more. Milwaukee ended the season being swept in Colorado and losing the Wild Card matchup. All the games were on the road and several featured blown leads late.
