The Luxemburg-Casco girls golf team is approaching the end of their season as they play at Northbrook Country Club on Monday. The Spartans shot a 424 last week in the conference championship. They finished in seventh place as Wrightstown won the tournament with a team score of 355. Freedoms’ Callie Berg and Wrightstowns’ Danielle Bruecker tied for first by shooting an 85. LC’s top performer, Lydia VandenHouten, finished five shots back with a 90.

Packers Impress on Sunday Night

For the third straight game, the Green Bay Packers(3-0) offense started slow and finished fast as they beat the Saints(1-2) 37-30. The Packers were able to move the ball with ease but could only come up with three points in each of their first two possessions. The Saints were able to move the ball as well with running back Alvin Kamara being the star on offense. After going up 13-7, the Packers gave up 10 straight points and were trailing 17-13 at the half. After a 72 yard pass to Allen Lazard on 3rd and 10, Aaron Jones was able to punch it into the endzone on 4th and goal to give Green Bay a 20-17 lead. The Saints were able to come back and kick a field goal to tie the game. The two teams then traded touchdowns and the Packers were facing a crucial 4th and one from mid-field. After getting stuffed on an Aaron Jones run, the momentum seemed to be in the Saints favor. Two plays into the Saints drive, Za’Darius Smith was able to come up with a huge forced fumble to turn the tide. Mason Crosby gave the Packers a 30-27 lead with a 49-yard field goal. After a New Orleans punt, Aaron Rodgers was able to lead the Packers on a game-clinching touchdown drive that ended with a 1-yard touchdown pass to Robert Tonyan with just under two minutes left. Aaron Rodgers finished with 283 yards passing and three touchdowns. Allen Lazard filled Davante Adams’ shoes with six catches for 146 yards and a score.

Brewers Clinch Playoff Spot

Entering the last day of the regular season, the Brewers had a chance to clinch a playoff spot with a win. Since the San Francisco Giants and the Philadelphia Phillies lost earlier in the day, the Brewers clinched even though they lost 5-2. The Cardinals jumped out to a big lead when they scored four runs in the third. The Brewers were able to score one run in the fourth off of a Daniel Vogelbach ground out. The Cardinals answered back right away with a Harrison Bader solo home run in the fourth. The Brewers comeback came up short with a Jacob Nottingham single that scored Orlando Arcia in the ninth. For the first time in franchise history, the Brewers are headed to the postseason for the third season in a row. 

 

The Brewers will now face the one-seeded Dodgers on Wednesday.

 

Brewers Big Win Over Cardinals

With only two games left in the regular season and one game back of a wild card spot, the Brewers got a much needed 3-0 victory. Brandon Woodruff pitched a near-perfect game as he struck out 10 batters, gave up two hits, and allowed zero runs in eight innings of work. The Brewers bats didn’t do much but they did enough to get the win. Ryan Braun started the scoring with a solo home run in the fourth. Daniel Vogelbach would immediately follow up with a solo home run of his own to give the Brewers a 2-0 lead. Omar Narvaez would add on to the lead with a single in the seventh to bring Orlando Arcia home. Josh Hader would close the game for his 13th save of the season. 

 

The Brewers finish up the regular season against the Cardinals on Sunday at 2:15 p.m.

 

Southern Door Volleyball Struggles

The Southern Door volleyball team struggled to get anything going on Saturday. The Eagles played five opponents in a tournament held at Valders and fell to all five of them. They lost to Kiel 25-14, 15-25, 7-15. The other four games only went two sets. The Eagles lost to Valders 16-25, 15-25, Manitowoc Luthern 19-25, 10-25, Winneconne 17-25, 13-25, and to Oconto 15-25, 14-25. 

 

Southern Door will look to bounce back on Tuesday when they travel to Oconto.

 

Spartans Volleyball Continues to Roll

Luxemburg-Casco’s volleyball team continued to steamroll the competition with a win at Wrightstown on Saturday. The Spartans won all three sets 25-8, 25-11, 25-15. They still have not allowed 20 points in a single set this season. The three stars of the match were Emma Johnson, Grace Holschuh, and Kylie Hanson. Emma Johnson recorded 31 assists, 8 digs, and three aces. Grace Holschuh had 10 kills while Kylie Hanson finished with eight kills and four digs. 

 

The Spartan's next match is at home on Monday against Oconto Falls.

 

Sevastopol Drops Opener

The Sevastopol football team lost its season opener 76-22 at home against Auburndale on Saturday. This was the first meeting between the two as it’s Auburndale’s first season playing 8-man. The Pioneers got off to a rough start as the Apaches jumped out to a quick 24-0 lead. Sevastopol was able to methodically go down the field and cut the lead to 24-8. The Apaches would answer back instantly and took that momentum to a 48-16 lead at the half. The run continued in the second half as Auburndale scored on their first three possessions with each drive only taking two plays. Sevastopol had a few explosive plays of their own including a Spencer Evenson 72-yard touchdown run and a Logan Beyer 20-yard touchdown reception on 4th and 11. In the end, Auburndale’s ground attack was too much for Sevastopol as they gave up 400+ rushing yards in the 76-22 defeat. The two will meet again on October 10.

 

Sevastopol will travel to Algoma to take on the Wolves on Friday at 7:00 pm.

 

Packers in Prime Time

The Green Bay Packers(2-0) will face their toughest opponent to date as they travel to New Orleans to take on the Saints(1-1). The Packers are coming off another impressive win over a division opponent after beating the Lions 42-21. For the second consecutive week, they were able to rack up 450+ yards and score 40+ points. Aaron Jones was the star of the game as he totaled 236 yards of offense to go with three touchdowns. As for the Saints(1-1), they are coming off a disappointing loss against the Raiders in Las Vegas. The Saints jumped out to a quick 10-0 lead after one and held a 17-7 lead midway through the second quarter. From that point on, the Saints were outscored 27-7. Their defense couldn’t get the Raiders off the field on 3rd down and the offense looked stagnant as they missed star wideout Michael Thomas. Even if Davante Adams and Michael Thomas won’t play, this game will still be a great showdown with Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees leading the way.

 

Kickoff is set for 7:20 p.m. on Sunday.

 

Spartans Post Shutout

The Luxemburg-Casco boys soccer team continued to roll as they beat Denmark 3-0. In a tight first half, the Spartans’ Anthony Patek was able to score off an assist from Nathan Johnson in the 10th minute to give LC a 1-0 lead. The Spartans were able to separate themselves from the Vikings with two goals in the second half. The first goal came from Nathan Johnson in the 50th minute. The second goal came from Derrick Davister off an Anthony Patek assist in the 83rd minute. The Spartan’s Garrett Zuleger recorded two saves while the Vikings’ Derrick Broerman recorded 11 saves.

 

Luxemburg-Casco’s next scheduled match is Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. when they host Wrightstown.

 

Brewers Split Doubleheader

The Milwaukee Brewers played two of their final four regular-season games in a doubleheader against the Cardinals. After losing the first game of the five-game series, it was essential that the Brewers at least split the doubleheader to keep their playoff hopes alive. The Brewers were victorious in the first game 3-0. Brent Suter pitched a gem that earned him the win. Suter struck out four batters and only gave up two hits and zero runs in four innings of work. The offense started early with an Eric Sogard single in the second to bring home Daniel Vogelbach. Orlando Arcia would add on to the lead with an RBI fielder’s choice that brought in Keston Hiura. Yelich would add the final run of the game with a solo home run in the third.

 

The Brewers would end up dropping the second game 9-1. The Cardinals jumped out early when Matt Carpenter drove in Tommy Edman with a single in the first. The Cardinals would add two more runs in the second and exploded for six runs in the fifth. Milwaukee’s only run came in the sixth with a solo home run by Orlando Arcia. Josh Lindblom received the loss for the Brewers as he gave up three runs in 2 ? innings. The Brewers only recorded two hits as a team.

 

Game four of the series starts at 6:07 p.m. on Saturday.

The Luxemburg-Casco and Southern Door football teams made quick work of their Waupaca County opponents on Friday night.

 

On 96.7 WBDK, the Spartans turned a close game at halftime into a blowout defeating the Waupaca Comets 41-15.

Sevastopol Football Kicks Off

 

Not many thought we would be here but we are. It’s officially football season. After much doubt, Sevastopol will be playing football this fall as they start their season by hosting Auberndale on Saturday. Sevastopol has zero experience against the Apaches as it’s Auburndale’s first season playing 8-man football. There is a lot of speculation on what their game plan will be. The good news though is that this year’s Pioneers squad differs from last year. They have 26 players on the roster and plenty of kids with a lot of experience. Coach Ron Frank says their front line should be a strength this season. 

Even though there will be football played this fall, it’s hard to imagine what could’ve been in any other regular season. Coach Frank thinks that this year’s team was good enough to win a title. 

Sevastopol will play host to Auburndale on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. The full podcast is available at NewRadioSportsNetwork.com

 

Packers Injury Update

As Sunday night's showdown with the New Orleans Saints gets closer, the doubt of Davante Adams being ready to play increases. The Green Bay Packers may be without two of their top players in Davante Adams and Kenny Clark. Adams was sidelined for a good portion of the second half, including the entire 4th quarter, of last week's game against the Lions with a hamstring injury. Adams has not practiced yet this week. As for Kenny Clark, he was limited in practice today after not participating yesterday as he deals with a groin injury. Kenny Clark was unable to play last week. The Saints’ star wideout Michael Thomas has yet to practice as he deals with an ankle injury he sustained in week one. One of the most anticipated matchups of the NFL season to date may take place with key stars on the bench.

 

The Packers travel to New Orleans to take on the Saints on Sunday at 7:20 p.m.

 

Spartans volleyball has favorable matchup on Saturday

The Luxemburg-Casco volleyball looks to stay perfect on Saturday against Wrightstown. The Spartans are currently 4-0 and in first place of the North Eastern Conference. They have not lost a set this year and have also not given up 20 points in a single set. On the other end of the spectrum, Wrightstown enters the matchup with a record of 0-5. Four of the five losses have been in conference and Wrightstown has only won one set on the season. 

 

The Spartans travel to Wrightstown for a 10:30 a.m. match on Saturday.

 

Brewers Drop Pivotal First Game

The Milwaukee Brewers dropped the first game of a five-game series against the Cardinals Thursday night losing 4-2. Corbin Burnes was only able to pitch 3 ? innings and was forced to leave the game with back issues. He received the loss as he struck out five batters and gave up three runs. The first run came off of a Paul Goldschmidt single in the third. The Brewers were able to answer back in the fourth when Tyrone Taylor drove in Jedd Gyorko with a single to tie the game at 1-1. Unfortunately, the Cardinals came back with an answer of their own as Dylan Carlson hit a 2-run home run in the fourth. Carlson would later add onto the 3-1 lead with a double in the sixth to score Dexter Fowler. Brewers’ Eric Sogard drove in Jace Peterson in the ninth but the comeback ended there. With only four games remaining and six teams within two games of each other, the Brewers almost have to be perfect as they are one game back of a wild card spot.

Southern Door athletics ready to roll

Southern Door High School will help ring in the new sports year in style Thursday when it hosts two different events. It has been since March 7th since an Eagles squad competed with school shutdowns occurring the following week after a 60-59 boys basketball loss to Kohler. Since then it has been about how to get kids back to school and back to sports safely. Athletic director Korey Mallien credits Packerland Conference commissioner Mike Holtz and the principals for their hard work getting to this point.

Things will certainly look different when teams begin competing. Spectators will be limited to just two per student while athletes will be asked to mask up in most situations. Mallien says the volleyball team, which boasts a completely new coaching staff of Eagles alums, has been a gold standard.

Southern Door’s busy day begins at 4:00 p.m. when it hosts a cross country meet with Oconto and Sevastopol paying a visit before the volleyball team takes on the Peshtigo Bulldogs at 7 p.m. The football team starts its season on Friday on the road at Clintonville, a game you will be able to hear on 102.1 MORE FM. You can listen to the full interview with Korey Mallien online at NEWRadioSportsNetwork.com under the podcasts section.
