Kewaunee picks up forfeit win in Week Five

Kewaunee football will get a win this weekend without having to take the field. The Storm were originally slated to match up against Sturgeon Bay for Week Five. When the Clippers forfeited their season and transitioned to eight-man ball, Kewaunee was left with a hole in the schedule. Conference play has begun for a vast majority of Wisconsin high schools. Combining that with the short notice to try to pick up a replacement left Kewaunee unable to plug the gap. The forfeit victory allows Kewaunee to improve to 4-1 on the season. 

Sturgeon Bay home opener Friday on 103.3

After two lengthy road trips to open up the 2019 campaign, Sturgeon Bay football gets to host a game. The Clippers take on the Wisconsin Heights Vanguards from Memorial Field in the home opener with the Door County Medical Center pregame show at 6:30 and kickoff at 7:00 PM on 103.3 The Clipper. The Clippers continue to look for their first win in eight-man football. 


Wisconsin Heights is deep at the skill positions and they can be explosive offensively. Sturgeon Bay will need to find the firepower to match. Grant Dossetto and Dave Mailand will be on the call on 103.3 The Clipper.

 

Sevastopol will take on Wausaukee on 104.1 WRLU

Sevastopol football will look for their first victory of the season on Friday night when they host Wausaukee. Both teams actually come in at 0-4 on the season. The Pioneers are coming off a 60-0 loss to Florence at home while Wausaukee lost at home 46-14 to Suring. Sevastopol hopes to get back some of their injured players like Nicholas West and Dallas Nichols.

Brewers lose game but no Wild Card ground

The Milwaukee Brewers' 2-1 loss to the San Diego Padres could have been a lot of worse as the season continues to close.

 

Only two run-scoring hits took place during the entire game: a two-run shot in the third inning by the Padres' Seth Meijas-Bream and a solo home run by Keston Hiura in the sixth inning. 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.
