Clipper soccer season ends with 3-1 overtime loss on 96.7 WBDK

The Sturgeon Bay Clippers could not overcome two overtime goals by the Sheboygan Christian/Sheboygan Lutheran Saturday in a Division 4 sectional final at Kiel High School, falling to the Eagles 3-1. 

 

The Clippers did strike first with a goal by Gavin Fernandez at the 19-minute mark.  Sheboygan Christian Lutheran responded with second half goal at the 63-minute mark as Caleb Hendrikse found the back of the net to tie the game.

 

The Clippers had a rare shot on goal in the waning seconds of regulation but could not convert for a last-second goal.

 

In the overtime, Hendrikse left little doubt of the outcome as he hit a goal at the 87-mark and and another at the 89-mark to seal the victory for the Eagles and complete his hat trick.  

 

Goalie Joey Wind had a solid game in the net, making numerous saves for the Clippers but the offense could not muster enough of an attack to put pressure on the Eagle defense.

 

The Clippers' successful season came to an end as they simply ran of gas and time.

The Gamblers would cut the lead in half when Nicholas VanTassell found the back of the net with just two seconds remaining in the game.

Badgers continue to roll with 22-7 win over Iowa

The Wisconsin Badgers claimed the Heartland Trophy on Saturday afternoon with a hard-fought victory over the #9 Iowa Hawkeyes at Camp Randall Stadium.  The Badgers defense shutout the Hawkeyes in the first half and Braelon Allen rushed for 104 yards on 20 carries to carry Wisconsin to their fourth consecutive win.  

 

Wisconsin's defense forced three turnovers and sacked Iowa quarterbacks six times.  The win kept the Badger's destiny in their own hands for a possible Big Ten West championship, after starting the Big Ten schedule 0-2.  

 

Graham Mertz threw for 104 yards and one touchdown, while scoring on two quarterback sneaks to lead the Badgers to the convincing win.

Gambler clobber Caps on the road, return home on 104.1 WRLU

The Green Bay Gamblers started the front end of a home-and-home series with the Madison Capitols with a 5-2 victory Friday night.

Packers survive desert scare vs. Cardinals

The Green Bay Packers escaped the Phoenix area with a 24-21 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday night.

 

Down their top three wide receivers entering the night, Aaron Rodgers still found a way to get seven different players a catch. That was crucial on their first scoring drive of night when they answered the Cardinals' touchdown with a two-yard visit to the end zone by Aaron Jones. That capped off a 13-play drive that took off over eight minutes off the clock. Mason Crosby would later hit a field goal to make it 10-7 at the break.

 

The Packers would make their lone possession of the third quarter count after they intercepted Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray. Rodgers found Randall Cobb for the first of two touchdowns to put the Packers up 17-7. The Packers and Cardinals would trade touchdowns in the fourth quarter, but it wasn't until former Cardinals practice squad cornerback Rasul Douglas picked off Murray for a second time that the game was sealed for the Packers.

 

The Packers will now have a long layoff before their next game, a late afternoon game in Kansas City on November 7th against the Chiefs.

Clippers need another OT to advance to Sectional Finals

The Sturgeon Bay Clippers soccer team moved on to the Sectional Finals with penalty kicks in front of a packed Clark Field. After scoring in the first half with a Luders PK (15th minute) the Clippers were held scoreless for the rest of the game. The Kiel Raiders brought the game level in the second half with Sitzman scoring on a cross in the 42nd minute.

Clippers look for success against Kiel on 96.7 WBDK

The Sturgeon Bay soccer team will have to go through a familiar opponent to advance to Saturday's sectional final when they host Kiel on Thursday night.

 

The Clippers made it to the sectional round by the slimmest of margins thanks to Spencer Hubbard, Ben Luders, Ben Hooker and Robert Alas all finding the back of the net during their penalty kicks when their regional final matchup against Peshtigo ended in regulation and overtime tied 3-3. Kiel shut out Winnebago Lutheran in its regional final last Saturday. The two teams played in late September with the Clippers taking that matchup between the two undefeated conference foes 7-2.

 

NEWRadioSportsNetwork.com and 96.7 WBDK will carry the match live beginning at 6:30 p.m. with the pregame show followed by kickoff at 7 p.m. The winner advances to the sectional final where they will either face St. Lawrence Seminary or Sheboygan Christian/Sheboygan Lutheran at 4 p.m. in Kiel.

 

 

Volleyball preview: Sevastopol, Luxemburg-Casco look to advance

The road to a state championship in volleyball continues on Thursday night as Sevastopol and Luxemburg-Casco host sectional semi-final games.

 

The Spartans host Fox Valley Lutheran for the second time in three weeks with a chance to advance to the sectional final on the line. They beat the Foxes 3-0 on October 14th to capture the NEC Championship.

 

The Pioneers will face Hilbert, which comes to Institute on a three-match, nine-set winning streak. The two teams come into the match with very similar records with the Pioneers winning 14 of their last 17 matches, all of which came against Oconto.

 

Both matches are scheduled to have the opening serve at 7 p.m.

Short-handed Packers look to steal one in the desert

If the Green Bay Packers are able to leave their game with the Arizona Cardinals with a victory, they will have done it without many of their key pieces in place.

 

In addition to their bevy of injuries, defensive coordinator Joe Barry and wide receivers Davante Adams and Allen Lazard are currently out due to COVID-19 protocols. The Cardinals have their own injury issues with JJ Watt already declared out for Thursday's matchup and wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins listed as questionable.

 

The game could go a long way with deciding who gets a first-round bye and the opportunity to host the playoffs throughout with the Cardinals boasting an undefeated 7-0 record and the Packers close behind at 6-1.

 

Kickoff is set for 7:20 p.m.

Bucks battle Timberwolves at Fiserv Forum

The Milwaukee Bucks will look to make it three wins in a row on Wednesday night as they play host to the Minnesota Timberwolves.  The Bucks (3-1) are coming off a 119-109 road win over the Indiana Pacers, playing short-handed without the services of Brook Lopez, Jrue Holiday, and Bobby Portis.  Minnesota (2-1) lost to the New Orleans Pelicans 107-98 on Monday.  The Timberwolves are led by leading scorers Karl Anthony-Towns, 29 points per game and Anthony Edwards 25.3 points per game.   Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 24.5 points per game and Khris Middleton is off to a good start at 21.3 points a game.  Tip-off from Fiserv Forum is set for 7 pm in Milwaukee.  

Lazard added to reserve/COVID-19 list

The Green Bay Packers are down another wide receiver, as Allen Lazard was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.  This comes after all-pro receiver Davante Adams was placed on the list on Monday and defensive coordinator Joe Barry reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday, according to NFL Network.  Lazard and Adams are likely out of Thursday night’s game against the Arizona Cardinals, according to NFL COVID-19 protocol.  The Packers did activate WR Malik Taylor from the COVID llst and possibly could activate Marquez Valdes-Scantling from the injured list.  Valdes-Scantling is recovering from a hamstring injury.  The Packers will leave for Arizona today (Wednesday) and kick-off is set for 7:20 pm on Thursday.    

Badgers preparing for Hawkeyes in key Big Ten West matchup

The Wisconsin Badgers, who looked dead in the water just three weeks ago after falling to Michigan at home, can control their destiny in the conference with a win over Iowa on Saturday. The Badgers have rolled off three consecutive wins, two in the conference, to gain a glimmer of hope in staying in contention for a Big Ten title. Leaning on a top-tier defense that has held opponents to under 50 yards rushing this year in five of the seven games, the Badgers look to stifle the Iowa offense. In the overall series, Wisconsin leads Iowa 48-44-2 all-time. Last year, the Hawkeyes beat the Badgers in Iowa City 28-7, but three-point favored Wisconsin hosts at Camp Randall Stadium on Saturday. 

The kickoff is set for 11 am.    

Packers' Adams, Barry out with positive COVID-19 tests

The Green Bay Packers' MIA list just got a little longer.

 

The organization announced on Monday that defensive coordinator Joe Barry and wide receiver Davante Adams were out due to COVID-19 protocols. Both could potentially miss Thursday's big showdown with the Arizona Cardinals as a result. For Adams, the Packers say that "per agreed-upon NFL-NFLPA policy, clubs are not permitted to comment on a player's medical status other than referring to roster status. Being placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list is for a player who either tests positive for COVID-19 or who has been in close contact with an infected person or persons."

 

The Packers were already entering Thursday's contest without many of the contributors they were hoping to have back at this point of the season including David Bakhtiari, Kevin King, and Za'Darius Smith among others. 

Short-handed Bucks knock out Pacers

Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton played like the All-Stars they are to get the Milwaukee Bucks past the Indiana Pacers Monday night 119-109.

 

The Bucks needed their Big Two to play like it due to Brook Lopez, Jrue Holiday, and Bobby Portis all being out of the lineup. Antetokounmpo narrowly missed a triple-double with 30 points, 10 rebounds, and nine assists. Middleton did his part as well, scoring 27 points on the night.  Grayson Allen and Pat Connaughton also reached double figures for the Bucks. The Pacers are still getting used to their new coach after they lost a slim lead in the first quarter and never were able to take control again. Former Milwaukee Bucks player Malcolm Brogdon scored 25 points in the loss. 

 

 

All-Packerland Conference teams announced

Five of the six players of the years for fall sports have Door and Kewaunee County ties after the Packerland Conference announced their year-end awards on Saturday.

The Milwaukee Bucks look for their first winning streak of the season when they travel to Indianapolis to face the Indiana Pacers Monday night.

Khris Middleton scored a team-high 28 points in the win for the Bucks in the second of three straight road games.

Tip-off is set for 6 p.m.

Packers defense pierce Washington's offense in win

The Green Bay Packers defense finally came up big in the red zone during Sunday's 24-10 over the Washington Football Team at Lambeau Field.

 

The Packers were able to turn away four trips to the red zone for Washington, giving up only a field goal. They had allowed their opponents to score touchdowns on their previous 15 trips. 

 

Davante Adams got the scoring going for the Packers right away in the first quarter on a 17 yard touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers only to be matched minutes later when Taylor Heinicke lofted a prayer and was answered by wide receiver Terry McLaurin 40 yards later to make it 7-7 at the end of one quarter.

 

The Packers would score 17 unanswered points thanks to touchdown passes to Allen Lazard and Robert Tonyan and a field goal made by Mason Crosby. Washington could only muster a single field goal in the second half thanks in part to some timely plays by Rashan Gary, Dean Lowry, and Chandon Sullivan. 

 

The Packers will have a short week as they travel to the desert on Thursday to face the undefeated Arizona Cardinals.

Minor league baseball players to get housing in 2022

Members of the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers and other Minor League Baseball players will have their housing covered in 2022 according to its parent organization.

 

MLB made the announcement on Sunday as more minor league players have made their financial plight more known through social media. Players chasing their dreams in the minors are often paid well below minimum wage standards and have to spend the bulk of that on housing or find other means. ESPN's Jeff Passan says owners from all 30 Major League Baseball teams agreed unanimously to a plan to provide housing for certain minor leaguers. Exact plans to how that will be accomplished have not been announced.

 

Minor leaguers did see substantial raises in 2021, but that still was not enough to cover some basic necessities. The Timber Rattlers in the past have had a program to where local families could "Adopt a Rattler" for the season so players could have an affordable place to stay while in the Appleton area. Families were compensated with season tickets and other benefits.

Coaches helping out on transportation

Coaches are taking it upon themselves to get their kids to games amidst a country-wide bus driver shortage.

 

Last month, Algoma School District highlighted the addition of Dean Blahnik to its transportation staff. Blahnik has been instrumental to the success of Algoma's field events as they have had several medalists in recent years. You can now add "bus driver" to his list of duties.

 

“There was a need, and I want to do what I can for our youth and our school district. I wanted to be part of the solution,” said Blahnik in the district's social media post.

 

Earlier this fall, several school districts in northeast Wisconsin said they needed to reschedule or outright cancel sporting events due to the lack of available drivers.

 

 

Packers top Bears late on the lakefront

The Green Bay Packers were able to escape from Soldier Field with a 24-14 victory against the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

 

It was the Bears that took the early lead after they thwarted the Packers' opening drive with a third-down sack by Khalil Mack. The Bears drove 80 yards before Khalil Herbert punched it in from the one-yard line. 

 

The Packers would get on the scoreboard in the second quarter when they capitalized on a Justin Fields interception. A short pitch to Allen Lazard from Aaron Rodgers tied the game up after driving 80 yards. The Packers would score five minutes later on a field goal from Mason Crosby.

 

It was 10-7 in the third quarter when the Packers would tack onto their lead, this time on a 12 yard pass from Rodgers to Aaron Jones to make it 17-7. The Bears would make it close in the fourth quarter when Darnell Mooney caught a five-yard pass from Fields to make it 17-14. The Packers would put the game away on the next drive when Rodgers took it in himself from six yards out to put a little extra ownership on the game. He finished with 195 yards passing and three total touchdowns.

 

The Packers return home Sunday afternoon for a noon kick against the Washington Football Team.

Badgers beat Army 20-14

The Wisconsin Badgers survived a low-scoring battle against Army on Saturday night with a 20-14 victory.  The Badgers came into the game a 13-point favorite but struggled to finish off the Black Knights until late in the game.  The Badgers got on the scoreboard with Braelon Allen scoring early in the second quarter on a 33-yard run.  Allen finished with 108 yards on 16 carries.  Quarterback Graham Mertz scored from five yards out with 3:22 left in the half, but the point-after-touchdown was blocked leaving the score at 13-0.  Army made it a game with a fourth-quarter touchdown run by quarterback Tyhier Taylor with 11:22 left in the game.   With only 2:55 left to go, Army fumbled and Wisconsin recovered at the Black Knight’s one-yard line.  One play later, Mertz scored for the second time on a quarterback sneak to secure the win.  Army did score late with :38 left, but the Badgers recovered an onside kick to preserve the win.  Wisconsin (3-3) will now return to Big Ten play next Saturday when they travel to Purdue to take on the Boilermakers who upset #2 Iowa 24-7 on Saturday.

Fourth's time the charm in Packers win

Mason Crosby's streak is no more, but he finally hit the game-winning field goal in the Green Bay Packers' 25-22 victory Sunday afternoon against the Cincinnati Bengals.

 

The Bengals got on the board first during their final possession of the first quarter on a four-yard run by Samaje Perine. The Packers would answer on consecutive drives in the second quarter on an Aaron Rodgers touchdown pass, a Crosby field goal, and a touchdown pass to Davante Adams. Down 16-7, the Bengals' Joe Burrow found Ja'Marr Chase for a 70-yard strike to narrow the lead to 16-14 at the break.

 

The Packers would only be able to muster a pair of field goals the rest of the way while Joe Mixon tied the game on a rushing score to help the Bengals tie the game with just under 3:30 remaining.

 

Crosby and Evan McPherson would take turns missing field goals the rest of the way until the Packers veteran knocked in his final attempt from 49 yards out to win the game. The game-winning field goal was set up on a pair of completions to Marcedes Lewis and Randall Cobb.

 

The Packers' road trip continues next Sunday when they play at Soldier Field to play the Chicago Bears.

 

 

Packers battle Bengals in Cincinnati

The Green Bay Packers look to make it four wins-in-a-row against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday afternoon as two 3 -1 teams square off at Paul Brown Stadium. 

 

The Bengals are tied for the top spot with the Baltimore Ravens and the Cleveland Browns in the American Conference North.  Looking to keep the momentum going after a thrilling 24-21 win over Jacksonville, the Bengals will depend on second-year quarterback Joe Burrow to have a big game. 

 

The Packers are coming off a hard-fought 27-17 win over the Pittsburg Steelers last Sunday, but a came with a price.  Quarterback Aaron Rodgers may have to win a shootout against Burrow, as Green Bay's sixth-ranked defense will be without all-pro cornerback Jaire Alexander from a shoulder injury and linebacker Za'Darius Smith who has been on the injured reserve list after back surgery. 

 

Free Agent Linebackers Jaylon Smith was signed by the Packers this week, but it is unlikely that he will suit up and help the defense this Sunday. 

 

The kickoff of the Packer-Bengal game is set for noon from Paul Brown Stadium in Cinncinati. 

 

Brewers get shutout in game two

The Milwaukee Brewers could not muster any key hits Saturday afternoon and fell to the Atlanta Braves in game two 3-0 at American Family Field.

 

Braves starter Max Fried shut down the Brewers for six innings allowing only three hits and striking out nine to pick up the win.

 

The Brewers did manage to get two men on base the last three innings, but the Braves bullpen was able to get out of the jams without giving up any runs.  Former Brewer Lee Smith got the final three outs, including a game-ending ground ball double play by Luke Maile, to pick up the save. 

 

Brewer Brandon Woodruff again got no offensive support going six innings.  He gave up three runs, including a home run to Austin Riley, to take the hard-luck loss.

 

The best-of-five series is now tied 1-1 with games three and four to be played in Atlanta.  Monday's game is set for a 12:07 pm first pitch.  

 

 

 

 

 

Wisconsin blanks Illinois 24-0

The Wisconsin Badgers got back on the winning track on Saturday with a 24-0 shutout of the Illinois Illini in Champaign.  Playing against former Coach Bret Bielema, the Badgers rolled over the Illini with a dominant running game. 

 

Leading 10-0 at halftime, the Badgers put two more scores on the board in the third quarter to put the game away. 

 

Rushing for 391 yards, the Badgers reestablished the running attack they have struggled with most of this year.

 

Running Back Chez Melusi led the way with 146 yards on 21 carries and one touchdown.  Braelon Allen added 131 yards on 18 carries and one score as well. 

 

Wisconsin quarterback Graham Mertz completed 10 of 19 passes for 100 yards.

 

The Badger defense contained the Illini offense all day, limiting the Illinois offense to just 93 yards.

Wisconsin (1-2, 2-3 overall) will now return home to play next Saturday night against Army with kickoff set for 7pm.   

Kewaunee's Cullen, Sevastopol's Dramm leads local finishers at Fameree Invite

Packers in the thick of adding defensive starters

The Green Bay Packers were connected to plenty of stories on Wednesday involving defensive stars in the league.

 

Internally, there is still no news on the severity of Jaire Alexander's injured shoulder. He had to leave Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers after using his shoulder primarily to make a tackle. Head coach Matt LaFleur said they are still getting opinions on the injury, going as far as saying Alexander could miss the entire season if surgery is required.

 

The Packers did sign cornerback Rasul Douglas off the Arizona Cardinals' practice squad. A third-round pick of the Philadelphia Eagles in 2017, Douglas has recorded 178 tackles, 34 passes defended and five interceptions in 60 regular-season games with 29 starts. He is a consolation prize for what many Packers fans were hoping for when Stephon Gilmore was going to be reportedly released by the New England Patriots. Davante Adams was openly trying to recruit Gilmore after he reportedly told people he was interested in playing with the Packers. The Patriots opted to not release Gilmore, instead trading him to the Carolina Panthers for a sixth-round draft pick.

 

The NFL Network is reporting the Packers are close to signing linebacker Jaylon Smith from the Dallas Cowboys. He has 19 tackles in four games so far this year two years after signing a big extension with the Cowboys. The acquisition could become official as soon as today.

Packers dealing with mounting injuries, Alexander's status update coming

The three-game winning streak for the Green Bay Packers is being tempered by a rash of injuries to key players.  Namely, Jaire Alexander, the Packers’ all-pro cornerback, is the latest starter to get injured.  Alexander left Sunday’s game with a shoulder injury that Coach Matt LaFleur says the team will have more information on Wednesday.  Injured late in the third quarter attempting to tackle Pittsburg Steeler running back Najee Harris, Alexander took a blow to his right shoulder went to the locker room, and never returned.  The Packers are already missing linebacker Za’Darius Smith who had back surgery last week and cornerback Kevin King who is in concussion protocol from the starting defensive lineup.  The official NFL injury report from the Packers for Sunday’s game with the Cincinnati Bengals will come out later Wednesday.

Packers defeat Steelers for third consecutive win

The Green Bay Packers scored 17 points in the second quarter to take control of the game Sunday, as they prevailed over the Pittsburg Steelers at Lambeau Field 27-17.

 

The Steelers opened the scoring on a 45-yard touchdown strike from Ben Roethlisberger to Diontae Johnson with 10:04 left in the first quarter.  A four-yard run by Aaron Rodgers early in the second quarter and a 23-yard pass from Aaron Rodgers to Randall Cobb with 10:55 left in the half gave the Packers the lead for good.

 

Chris Boswell and Mason Crosby hit field goals to close out the first-half scoring, as the Packers took a 17-10 lead into halftime.  The Packers benefited from a huge offside penalty that negated a blocked field goal by Pittsburg that was returned for a touchdown right before intermission.

 

The second half saw the Packers extend the lead to 27-10 on another Crosby field goal and Cobb’s second TD reception from one yard out.  Pittsburg would score once more, but it was not enough as the Packers improved to 3-1. 

Rodgers was 20/36 for 248 yards and two touchdowns with one rushing touchdown.  A. J. Dillon led the rushing attack with 15 carries for 81 yards and Randall Cobb had his biggest game since returning to the Packers with five receptions for 69 yards and two scores. 

 

The Packers will now look to get healthy, as starting defensive backs Jaire Alexander and Darnell Savage were forced to leave the game with injuries and did not return to play.  Green Bay will travel next Sunday to Cincinnati to take on the 3-1 Bengals who defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars 24-21. 

Badgers blasted by Michigan

The Wisconsin Badger.s suffered another fourth-quarter collapse for the second week in a row with a 38-17 loss to the Michigan Wolverines.  A more physical and aggressive Michigan defense dominated Wisconsin's offensive line all game long.  

 

Playing before a huge crowd of Badger faithful at Camp Randall, Wisconsin fell behind 10-0 early in the second quarter as Michigan took advantage of Badger turnovers.  Trailing 13-3, the Badgers pulled close at halftime by scoring on an 18-yard pass from Graham Mertz to Chimere Dike in the final seconds. 

 

Mertz was forced to leave the game with a chest injury after a big hit early in the third quarter and did not return to the game. 

 

Michigan extended their lead with a J.J. McCarthy one-yard run with 8:26 left in the third quarter and never looked back.

Packers return home to face Steelers

The Green Bay Packers look to make it three wins in a row when they host the Pittsburgh Steelers at Lambeau Field Sunday afternoon.
