Defending Division 5 state champ continues to flex its muscles in rematch with Ozaukee football team

Two years ago, when Jim Lippe took over the varsity football coaching reins at Ozaukee High School, he expressed the belief that you only become a championship team by playing title-caliber opponents.

Last Friday, the Warriors continued that approach when they faced St. Mary’s Springs, the defending WIAA Division 5 state champ, for the third time in the past two years.

And for the third time, the meeting left Ozaukee with a lopsided loss, this time by a 48-7 margin in Fond du Lac.

“When you play the undisputed best team in the state in our division, you have to take that into consideration when you look at how the game goes,” Lippe said.

“It’s a really tough comparison. That being said, we remain one of the few teams that can consistently score on Springs.”

After seeing his team finish in the middle of the pack at the North Shore Conference meet last season, Port Washington boys’ cross-country coach Mark Pasten is hoping for better things this fall.

It’s not just wishful thinking, either.

With the best of last year’s runners back in the fold, the Pirates are poised to show strength in numbers.

“We return all seven runners from our sectional team, and they are looking good,” Pasten said.

“The kids worked really hard this summer. I think we will be in good shape.”

Port, which placed fourth in the conference meet, is led by senior Jason Marhal, who developed into the Pirates’ No. 1 runner. He was the Pirates’ lone qualifier for the WIAA Division 2 state meet, capping the season with a 32nd-place finish.


Joining Marhal as the team’s top runners are seniors Jack Skelton-Miller and Joe Bortolotti, juniors Bill Ernest and Taylor Godersky and sophomores Eagan Norman and Nick Michalowski.

Pasten also expects senior Alex Balister and junior Matt Froelich to contribute at the varsity level.

“It’s a nice mix. There’s not a big drop-off from one to seven, so our depth should be good,” he said.

Marhal continued his strong junior season with an excellent track season and has stepped up as a leader again this fall, Pasten noted.

Winless weekend trip to Mukwonago leaves Port boys searching for answers

A trip to Mukwonago left the Port Washington boys’ soccer team searching for answers last weekend.

Despite staying close to each of three opponents in a two-day tournament, the Pirates came home winless, including being handed a 2-0 loss by Thomas More in the seventh-place game Saturday afternoon.

“We didn’t play very well at all,” said Port coach Mike Bultman, whose team fell to 0-3-1 after opening the season with a tie earlier in the week.

“We played very flat in the first game (a 2-1 loss to Burlington), played much better in the second game (a 1-0 loss to Madison East) and made a lot of mistakes in the last game.

“We have a lot of things to work on.”

In the opening round against Burlington on Friday, the Pirates came out tentative and paid the price.

Burlington took a 1-0 lead when it scored off a free kick in the 20th minute.
