Semifinal losses in Northern Division playoffs dash post-season hopes of three area Land O’ Lakes teams

Hard-fought defeats brought the Land O’ Lakes baseball season to an end for a pair of local teams Sunday.

Grafton and Port Washington were ousted from the Northern Division playoffs with semifinal losses.


Grafton grabbed an early lead but fell to defending champion Cedarburg, 9-4, while Port was upset by Plymouth, 5-3.


A three-run first inning gave sixth-seeded Grafton a brief advantage against the top-seeded Mercs. However, host Cedarburg responded with nine unanswered runs, moving ahead to stay with a three-run third.


By the end of the fifth, the Mercs held a 9-3 lead.


Brandon Nedoma had three hits for Cedarburg, which outhit the Express, 12-11. Teammates Nolan Gilbertson, John Regnitz and Taylor Piel added two hits apiece.


Grafton got two hits each from Mike Pruefer, Max Pruefer, Choo Weisflog and Jordan Clark.


Zach Lauterbach pitched the first seven innings for the win. Ryan Eigenberger took the loss with five innings of work.


Fourth-seeded Plymouth built a 5-0 lead and withstood a late rally by Port (No. 2).

A battle of the sexes went to a female at the fifth annual City of Seven Hills Triathlon in Port Washington last Saturday.

With new coach at helm, Port banks on players who are a year older, stronger

Last season, inexperience took its toll on a young Port Washington High School boys’ soccer team that struggled to a 4-17-2 record.

This fall, the Pirates are banking on a fresh start — one that includes a new head coach and veteran-led lineup eager to reverse their fortunes.

“We’re going to be young again, but this is a more experienced team,” said Sean O’Brien, a longtime assistant coach who has taken over the top spot from Mike Bultman.

“We’ve got a group of guys who are going to play with a lot of heart and a lot of passion.”

O’Brien provides a familiar face on the sideline, having served as Bultman’s right-hand man for nine seasons. Bultman resigned after 23 years at the varsity helm.

“I’m really excited about the opportunity,” said O’Brien, who has also coached Port girls’ soccer.

“It’s not easy to replace Mike after all those years, but we worked well together, and I’m really prepared for the job.”

The Pirates’ top priority will be showing progress after a season in which they  failed to win consecutive games and went 0-7 in North Shore Conference play.

Buoying Port’s hopes this fall are the return of seven starters, including senior midfielder Tyler Grisar and junior Alex Lopez. Both received honorable mention in All-North Shore Conference voting.
