Ejected fans see tougher fate

Much like players, fans at WIAA sporting events could face consequences beyond just one contest. The association which governs Wisconsin's high school sports passed a rule that fans who are ejected will now be prohibited from viewing the next sporting event. The rule change is an attempt for fans to think twice before acting out toward officials, coaches, and others by seeing longer-term repercussions if ejected. The new rule couples with legislation passed in the Wisconsin state senate and assembly.

Packers wrap up first OTA's

Though the biggest story the last month out of the Green Bay Packers organization may not be Organized Team Activities, they wrapped up their first round of the voluntary workouts on Wednesday. The big news was that MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers was not present, which is unusual for the 16 year veteran. Some have considered that a sign of discontent with the organization, and others have dismissed that notion given the number of other players who choose not to participate. That list of players includes four of the team’s top wide receivers, as well as All-Pro tackle David Bakhtiari, who is recovering from an ACL tear and All-Pro cornerback Jaire Alexander. Overall ten of the 89 players were absent. On Wednesday, the Packers signed Wide Receiver DeAndre Thompkins, a player who has circled the Pennsylvania football wagon. Thompkins played at Penn State University and had brief stints the last two seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers. 

 

In the absence of the league’s MVP, Jordan Love took first team snaps at the practices. In a press conference, Head Coach Matt Lafleur and running back Aaron Jones each noted second year jumps. Jones commended Love’s improved command of the huddle and offense and Lafleur mentioned the ball jumping off his hand quicker and that he could tell Love stressed mechanics this offseason. Lafleur also repeated previous sentiments on Love, saying he still has a lot to learn. It is unclear if and when Aaron Rodgers will show back up to Lambeau Field, but the Packers will still be back for more voluntary workouts on June 1st.

Clippers soccer advances on 96.7 WBDK

A tradition since 2009 continued Thursday night as the Sturgeon Bay Clippers soccer team closed out another regional title with a 3-0 victory over Gibraltar/Sevastopol.

 

Both teams had not played since they battled each other on April 26th, so the two sides took the first 10 minutes to shake off the rust. The Clippers would strike first as Robert Alas chipped the ball over the Vikineers keeper to make it 1-0 in the 17th minute. Alas would strike again when he took a cross through the box and tapped in the one-timer in the 31st minute.

 

It would remain that way until the 74th minute. The Vikineers made a few nice surges in the second half, pressuring goalkeeper Jonathan Wind to make a few acrobatic saves. A handball by Trey Maas set up a penalty kick for the Vikineers, only to have Connor Thompson strike it just wide to keep the score at 2-0. The Vikineers would return the favor with a handball in the box, but Benjamin Luders would drive it home for the final tally of the game.

 

The game had its fair share of yellow cards with two going against Gibraltar/Sevastopol and one against a coach for Sturgeon Bay. Alas drew a red card in the final seconds of the match for a hard play against the Vikineers' Antonio Curiel. He will not be allowed to play in Saturday's match against Notre Dame, which beat Ashwaubenon 5-0 in their regional final matchup in Green Bay.

 

In other soccer action, the Kewaunee girls lost 10-0 to NEW Lutheran. Sturgeon Bay was scheduled to play New Holstein. Sturgeon Bay and Luxemburg-Casco are scheduled to play in a quad tournament this weekend. The Spartans will play 5 p.m Friday at Notre Dame and 9 a.m. Saturday against Green Bay Southwest.
