Second-quarter surge helps carry Grafton past Nicolet in NSC road victory

After trading body blows for nearly 23 minutes, Grafton’s football team turned the game around at Nicolet and never looked back in a 27-7 victory on Friday.
The game turned in the final minute of the second quarter, after three punts and a turnover on downs on the Black Hawks’ first four possessions.
Junior quarterback Brady Ward ran right for a five-yard touchdown with 1 minute, 1 second left in the first half, capping a seven-play drive in which only Ward and senior running back Caden Knauer touched the ball.
On the drive, Knauer had an electrifying burst through the middle in which he spun and broke tackles for a 16-yard gain. Ward scampered 33 yards to take Grafton to Nicolet’s 6-yard line.
On the first play of the drive, Ward took a shot and had to come out for a couple of plays.
CADEN KNAUER RUN 9 21 17“When he came back, he was a different dude,” coach Shaun Behrend said.
Five plays after the first score, Grafton was back in the Knights’ end zone.
Nicolet returned the kick to its own 46, but then went nowhere. Jacob Garza sacked Carson Trimborn for an eight-yard loss.
On the next play, senior linebacker John Kluck recovered a fumble, and the Hawks were back in business at Nicolet’s 33 with 32 seconds left.
After a pass-interference penalty in the end zone moved the ball to the 18, Ward hit Griffin Stenberg for six yards to move to the 12. Grafton called timeout with 19 seconds left.
Ward then followed his blockers to the right and scored his second touchdown in less than a minute.
Grafton was up, 14-0, at halftime.

Big plays pave way to upset win at Hartford that puts Pirates on playoff path

Port Washington football coach John Bunyan described the scene after his team blew out highly ranked and undefeated Hartford on the road last Friday.
“They were ecstatic,” he said of his players. “It’s been a good atmosphere at school, too.”
The Pirates took it to the Orioles, beating their new North Shore Conference foe, 39-19, to move to 3-2 in the NSC and into position to make the playoffs for the second straight season.
“It was huge for our program. We’ve won three straight. That hasn’t happened for a while,” Bunyan said.
Junior quarterback Adam Baierl completed 15 of 19 passes (79%) for 276 yards and three touchdowns, and added 80 yards and a touchdown rushing on 21 carries.
His favorite target, all-conference player Jacob Lippe, caught eight balls for 154 yards and two scores.

“We had everything rolling, especially through the air,” Bunyan said.
Port’s defense matched the effort, holding Hartford twice on fourth down and picking off two passes. They held the run-first Orioles to 58 yards on the ground.
Port took control early, scoring touchdowns on four of its first five possessions, building a 26-6 lead by halftime.
Lippe caught two touchdowns in the first half, including a 28-yarder that he went up and took away from a defender, and a 22-yarder with three seconds left in the first half.
“He’s such a good athlete,” Bunyan said.
