Winning recipe keeps Lady Hawks cooking PDF Print E-mail

Blend of tough defense, timely scoring lifts Grafton past Wisconsin Lutheran as undefeated roll continues

The traditional recipe for winning basketball games is rather simple.

Blend a heavy dose of defense with a measure of timely scoring and dashes of steady ball handling, crisp passing and unselfish team play.

Continue to mix ingredients in each half until the final horn sounds.

The formula worked wonders again last week for the Grafton girls’ team, which whipped up its ninth win in as many tries: a 58-36 home win over Wisconsin Lutheran on Dec. 23.

“We struggled in the first half, but we made a few simple adjustments that got us going,” Grafton coach Steve Reinhardt said.

“We defended much better in the second half, got to the free-throw line a lot and made enough shots to pull away.”

Although the host Black Hawks had only three more field goals than Lutheran, they feasted at the foul line. A 20-for-27 effort (74%) there compared to the Vikings’ 8-for-14 (57%) helped turn the nonconference game into a rout.

Grafton was led by the one-two punch of guards Hannah Belanger (21 points) and Katie Hunt (19), who combined to outscore Lutheran.

Belanger, a freshman, went 11-for-12 on free throws, and Hunt, a senior, had a trio of three-point baskets.

Ozaukee girls use team effort to stymie Lutheran in final game before break

The Ozaukee girls’ basketball team gave coach Tim Wolff an early Christmas present with a convincing home victory over Sheboygan Lutheran on Dec. 22.

The Warriors took control early in the Big East Conference game and rolled to a 40-18 win. By halftime, Ozaukee owned a 23-10 lead.

It was an unconventional game for the Warriors, who got only eight points from high-scoring Emma Richards. The sophomore center averages 16 points and nearly 18 rebounds per game.

Although Richards struggled offensively, she did grab 17 rebounds.

Junior forward Autumn Smith helped pick up the scoring slack with her best offensive performance of the season. She finished with a game-high 14 points and seven rebounds.

Sophomore Amy Wolff chipped in eight points, including a pair of three-point baskets.

Ozaukee also got seven rebounds from Elise Large and five assists from Brooke Bares.

Morgan Gottowski led the Crusaders with six points.

Ozaukee improved to 2-4 in the Big East and 3-6 overall. Lutheran fell to 3-3 in the conference and 3-5 overall.

Grafton/Port hockey team keeps searching for answers after tough loss to Cedarburg

The Grafton/Port Washington hockey team grabbed an early lead against Cedarburg on Dec. 23, only to see it evaporate into an 8-1 loss at the Ozaukee Ice Center.

Junior forward Taylor Snider put the Ice Hawks on the board first when he scored with an assist from Eric Marquette in the second minute.

But Cedarburg responded with three first-period goals, scored twice in the second period and added three goals in the final period to turn the North Shore Conference game into a rout.

Pete Picciolo, Brett Benning and James Furey each had two goals for the Bulldogs.

“We are still suffering from injuries and suspensions that saw us suit up only 10 skaters and one goalie,” Hawks coach Ryan Donovan said.

“Having said that, I was very happy with our effort over the course of the game. We started brightly but took a 5-minute penalty that derailed our early momentum.”
