Difficult opposition led to three more hockey defeats for the Grafton/Port Washington Ice Hawks last week, but success may be right around the corner.Sports3

The Hawks’ latest setback came Saturday, when they were handed an 8-2 home loss by Whitefish Bay/Nicolet/Shorewood

Grafton/Port stayed within striking distance when it trailed by only 4-2 entering the third period. However, five penalties, including two five-minute majors and one 10-minute misconduct, helped turn the game into a rout.

Junior forward Taylor Snider scored twice for the Hawks in the second period, with assists from Kyler Huck and Carter Day.

Sophomore goalie Ty Barnhill made 43 saves in the loss.

“More than the other two games, we saw the most improvement against Whitefish Bay,” Hawks coach Ryan Donovan said.

“They greatly outplayed us earlier in the season en route to a 10-0 win, but we provided a stiff challenge on this night.”

Earlier in the week, Grafton/Port lost to Germantown, 10-2, on Jan. 7 and fell to Cedarburg, 7-1, on Jan. 5. Both games were at the Ozaukee Ice Center.

The Germantown game opened with a scoring flurry. By the end of the first period, the Hawks trailed, 5-2.

Snider and Huck each scored goals. Jake Klopp had two assists, and Ian Schermer had one.

“Giving up three goals in about a two-minute span near the end of the first period really doomed us,” Donovan said.

High-powered foes in Kaukauna show Pirates some wrestling moves to practice

Just how tough is the field of wrestling teams at the Cheesehead Invitational in Kaukauna?Sports2

Ask Port Washington coach Angelo LaRosa, whose squad made its annual trip to the nationally known tournament last weekend.

“This was our ninth time at the Cheesehead, and this was the second-toughest they’ve ever had,” LaRosa said.

“The field was unbelievable. We actually wrestled well and got last place.”

Continuing its tradition of attracting some of the top high school programs from across the country, the two-day tournament was dominated by teams from Minnesota and Illinois.

Mt. Carmel (Ill.) won the championship with 582 points, followed in the top four by Carl Sandburg (Ill.) with 557, Kasson-Mantorville (Minn.) with 465 and St. Michael’s Albertville (Minn.) with 459.

Front-line advantage pays dividends for Grafton boys in conference win over Port

On paper, the Grafton boys’ basketball team shouldn’t have had much trouble handling Port Washington in a North Shore Conference game last Friday.Sports1

With a much taller front line and more scoring punch, the Black Hawks held the upper hand against a winless Port team that has struggled to put the ball in the hoop this season.

So much for forecasts.

Although Grafton managed to secure a 47-39 win as part of a coed doubleheader, it didn’t come without a tussle.

The host Pirates showed some scrap by overcoming an extended scoring lull in the first half to make a serious bid for an upset. They overcame a 24-17 halftime deficit to tie the game at 26-26 midway through the second period and trailed by only 35-32 with five minutes left.
