With 8-0 start to season, Grafton boys’ team takes top spot in Div. 3 state poll

With foes such as Whitefish Bay, Germantown and Cedarburg still ahead on the schedule, Grafton coach Don Arnold was quick to temper his team’s lofty standing as the No. 1 team in the Division 3 state boys’ soccer poll.

But he wasn’t taking anything away from the Black Hawks’ 8-0 season start, which included three more wins last week.


“It’s a nice honor for our players to be ranked up there, but we’ve got a long way to go,” said Arnold, whose squad rallied to defeat West Bend West, 4-2, on Friday.


“We have a lot of tough teams we haven’t faced yet. We have a lot to work on.”


Grafton took a 2-1 lead into halftime, sandwiching goals in the second and 31st minutes around a West goal in the 12th minute. Brendan Larsen scored with an assist from Jake Demerath to give the Hawks the edge at the break.


West pulled even in the 64th minute, only to have Grafton’s Chris Holdway answer with a Demerath assist one minute later.


Demerath, a junior midfielder, added an insurance score at 74 minutes.


“We had to work hard for that win,” Arnold said. “We were really tired from a tough game the night before against Slinger and one against Homestead earlier in the week.


“It showed us we also have to shore things up defensively.”

Washington takes 63-8 hit from quick-strike Ozazukee in nonconference mismatch

The Ozaukee Warriors’ dominance of football teams from large Milwaukee schools continued last Friday.

Racing to a 49-0 lead by halftime and piling up 511 yards of total offense, coach Jim Lippe’s squad routed Milwaukee Washington, 63-8, in nonconference play.


A year ago, the same teams combined for 103 points when the Warriors pounded out a 65-38 win. That season, Ozaukee also crushed Milwaukee Bay View, 48-6.


This time, Ozaukee was also dominant defensively, allowing only 67 yards from scrimmage.


Improving to 3-0 overall, Ozaukee is the state’s highest-scoring Division 6 team and lead the Central Lakeshore Conference in overall offense and defense.


However, the Warriors have yet to meet a conference opponent. That won’t happen until Sept. 19 when they face Random Lake.


“We played a really good game. We executed in all phases of the game,” Lippe said.

Chier’s big night against Pardeeville helps CG-B football team regain its footing

After a season-opening loss to Mishicot, Cedar Grove-Belgium football coach Chris Zablocki said his young team had a lot of room for improvement.

Last Friday, the Rockets showed they’ve come a long way in a short time by steamrolling Pardeeville, 40-14, in a nonconference game.

Sparked by halfback Aaron Chier, Cedar Grove-Belgium rolled up 452 yards of total offense, including 302 on the ground.

Chier collected 177 yards and four touchdowns on 20 carries.

“We were able to take advantage of some of the things Pardeeville gave us defensively,” Zablocki said.

“Our offensive line has improved a lot and sprung some big holes for Aaron and Taylor (Heiden) to get through.”

Heiden, a junior, added 67 yards on the ground and scored two touchdowns.
