Quick-strike Ozaukee football team shreds Random Lake, 62-0, to remain undefeated

The Ozaukee Warriors didn’t do everything well on the football field last Friday.

They failed to score in the fourth quarter, were flagged for 12 penalties that cost them 100 yards and averaged only 24 yards on punts.


But those shortcomings became little more than nitpicks after Ozaukee opened Central Lakeshore Conference play with a 62-0 win over Random Lake.


Bolting to a 35-0 lead in the first quarter, the host Warriors showed no mercy in a longtime rivalry game that has typically been hard-fought and competitive.


“We played pretty well,” said Ozaukee coach Jim Lippe, whose team improved to 5-0 and has outscored opponents, 236-35, this season.


“But we did make some mistakes, like too many penalties. We also haven’t been at full strength because of some injuries, so we can do better.”


It’s hard to imagine the Warriors doing much better offensively, though. They piled up 518 yards to Random Lake’s 78 and scored seven touchdowns from scrimmage.


Jake Wolff continued to provide much of the fuel as a defensive back and quarterback. Besides returning an interception 35 yard for a touchdown that opened the scoring, the senior ran for two touchdowns and was 6-for-7 passing for 131 yards and a score.

Freshman’s fast finishes lead Pirates in annual meet

Karla Sharbuno provided most of the highlights for the Port Washington High School girls’ swimming team when it hosted the annual Pirate Invitational last Saturday.

The freshman turned in her squad’s top performance by placing second in the 200-yard freestyle with a time of 2 minutes, 1.92 seconds.


She trailed only West Bend West’s Kylie Engstrom, whose 2:00.67 clocking topped a 46-swimmer field.


Sharbuno also took third in the 500 freestyle (5:28.11).


The Pirates scored 67 points, good for 11th in the 12-team meet at the Port Washington-Saukville School District Aquatic Center.


Their other individual scoring finishes came from sophomore Sasha Ottesen, who was fourth in the 100 breaststroke (1:16.47) and 10th in the 50 freestyle (27.96).


In relay races, Port got a 12th from the 200 freestyle relay of Ottesen, Breanna Grady, Sarah Klassen and Sharbuno (1:58.79) and a 16th by the 200 medley relay of Sharbuno, Ottesen, Klassen and Grady (2:20.08).


West Bend West won the team title with 412.5 points, well ahead of runner-up Plymouth’s 346.

Coming off a 48-6 road loss to Homestead the previous week, the Grafton football team was eager for redemption last Friday.

Although the Black Hawks weren’t able to secure an upset win, they turned in an improved performance and mounted a late rally in a 24-12 home loss to Whitefish Bay.


For Grafton coach Andy Kolstad, that was a stepping stone for a young team trying to establish its identity.


“We came out and played hard with a new lineup. We still made some mistakes, but the kids continued to work,” he said.


“We made some good defensive plays and came back with a couple of touchdowns in the fourth quarter. It was encouraging.”


Grafton, which fell to 1-2 in North Shore Conference play and 2-3 overall, needed a half to gain its footing with a revamped lineup.


A special-teams breakdown helped Bay jump ahead for good in the first quarter.


With the Hawks facing a fourth-and-12 at their 31-yard line, Joe Fugate lined up for a punt. However, Sam Weber broke through the line to block the kick, scooped up the ball and raced 10 yards for a touchdown.


In the second period, the Blue Dukes (4-1 overall, 2-1 in conference) took control by adding two touchdowns in the final four minutes.


Van Bassindale’s 3-yard scoring run capped a 15-play, 80-yard march that made it 14-0 with 3:39 left.


When the Dukes got the ball back, they made quick work with a 48-yard, six-play touchdown drive. Bassindale’s 1-yard burst into the end zone with just 19 seconds remaining put his team up, 21-0, at intermission.


The Hawks showed some offensive spark with junior Jarred Kettenhoven at quarterback, including a drive that reached the Bay 5 before they turned the ball over.
