Eighth-inning rally lifts Port baseball team to Kapco crown after starting week with three straight conference defeats

Turnabout provided much-needed baseball relief for the Port Washington Pirates on Saturday night.

After losing three North Shore Conference games last week, the Pirates picked themselves up in championship style at the Kapco Classic in Mequon.


Austin Thate’s two-run single with one out in the bottom of the eighth inning lifted Port to a 7-6 victory over Catholic Memorial in the title game at Kapco Park.


Not only did the win give the Pirates top honors in the four-team tournament, it put smiles back on their faces after a tough stretch of five losses in six games.


“It was great win for the kids,” Port coach Ryan Finnerty said. “It really gave us a lift after a frustrating week.”


Besides securing first-place honors, the Pirates’ final rally had added excitement. It came just minutes before umpires would have suspended play at 11 p.m., Finnerty said.


Port, which overcame three deficits to prevail, entered its final at-bat trailing, 6-5.


With one out, Lukas Michels drew a walk and Sam Lepak doubled, putting two runners in scoring position. After Sam Plier was intentionally walked, Thate stroked his celebration-igniting hit.


Thate, Kiley Prellwitz and Aidan Wojciehowski each had two of the Pirates’ nine hits off a pair of Memorial pitchers. However, Finnerty was equally pleased with his team’s defense.

Quick-strike Ozaukee senior joins select soccer group by earning all-conference first-team honors for 3rd straight year

After playing in the shadow of other Central Lakeshore Conference soccer standouts the past two years, Ozaukee’s  Natalie Clark carved out her own special niche this season.

Not only was the senior forward awarded a spot on the All-CLC first team in a recent vote of coaches, she joined a select group by receiving top honors for the third straight year.

One of the area’s top offensive players, Clark scored 23 goals as a striker in Ozaukee’s potent offense. She also had two assists in helping the Warriors finish second in the conference.

“Natalie had a very solid year on the field as one of our captains,” said Ozaukee coach Eric Liebergen, whose team was 11-3 in the league and 17-5-3 overall.

“She used her speed well and really improved in her 1-on-1 skills.”

Clark, who will take her soccer talents to the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire this fall, was one of four Ozaukee players named to the all-conference first team. She was joined by midfielder Emily Janke, defender Bridget Hoffmann and goalkeeper Kaylee Klopp.

Also receiving first-team honors were Cedar Grove-Belgium forwards Brooke Keller and A.J. Caldwell.

Janke, a sophomore, emerged as one of the league’s best young players and received the most first-team votes. A co-captain, she matched Clark’s output with 23 goals and had five assists.

CG-Belgium scuffles at plate but manages split in two CLC shutouts

Their bats aren’t coming around, but the Cedar Grove-Belgium Rockets’ pitching and defense earned them a split in two Central Lakeshore Conference baseball games last week.
After blanking Random Lake, 4-0, on June 25, the Rockets fell to Sheboygan Lutheran/Kohler, 2-0, in a makeup contest  the following day.

Against Random Lake, Cedar Grove-Belgium pitcher David Niebauer went the distance, allowing only two hits and three walks while striking out five.

“He pitched a nice game. He did a great job of keeping them off balance,”  Rockets coach Mike Ruppel said.

Cedar Grove-Belgium got on the scoreboard early and late.

In the first inning, Jim Simmelink singled, moved to second base on a passed ball and stole third. Brian Mueller knocked him in with a sacrifice fly.

In the sixth, the Rams committed four errors, hit two batters and walked one in gifting three runs to the Rockets.

Against Lutheran/Kohler, pitcher Noah Fink — who has a perfect game this year — shut down the Rockets on one hit, striking out 14 while working out of jams all night.

In the second inning, Cedar Grove-Belgium loaded the bases with no outs, only to have Fink fan the side.

The Rockets also stranded runners in scoring position in three other innings.
