The Lakeshore Lacrosse co-op team beat University School 12-5 under the lights at Shorewood High School Friday night.

Whitefish Bay senior Collin Braam had his second consecutive five-goal game after picking up five against Kenosha earlier in the week. Anders Bjella put in three goals for Lakeshore and junior Will Tucker had sure hands on two give-and-go tallies. The game was 5-all at halftime before Lakeshore took control. USM finished with a season-high nine penalties. USM coach Cameron Feist said, “The major highlight from the game was senior James Shovers, who was new to the sport at the …

Soccer, baseball, softball, track and tennis in this week's video roundup.

Whitefish Bay, Nicolet and Brookfield East face the best in the Midwest and find the going tough.
What started as an incredible opportunity ended simply as an early learning experience for many Patch-area boys tennis teams on Saturday. Despite having normally possessing some of the best talent in the state, Brookfield East, Nicolet and Whitefish Bay all dropped their opening matches and were quickly left battling on the lower half of the bracket at the annual New Trier Invitational, hosted this year by Marquette High School. Brookfield East rebounded the best after its early loss, finishing fifth in the eight-team tournament. Nicolet and Bay finished sixth and seventh, respectively, while New Trier, IL, knocked off Saint Xavier of Louisville, KY, for the title. The invite always boasts some of the area’s top talent, and this year was …

The Grafton Ice Hawks were physical but the Storm finessed their way to a 6-2 win on Tuesday night.
The WNS Storm are peaking at the right time of the season and that was bad news for for the Port Washington-Grafton Ice Hawks on Tuesday at the Ozaukee Ice Center. Joe Aiken and Drew Kneisel scored two goals each as the Storm (12-12-0) won their sixth consecutive game, 6-2. The Ice Hawks appeared frustrated early on and Storm coach Maco Balkovec said that plays into the hand of the team keeping their composure. “When you’ve got the other team buzzing you, that can take them out of their game," he said. "We handled their pressure well and they were very physical. When you handle that physicality, you can take away their confidence.” The Storm jumped out to an early lead in the first period with a goal by team captain Joe Aiken at 4:47 of …

Port Washington decimated the field in Saturday's wrestling tournament in Germantown. Nicolet's McKay wins at 215 and Henry Dixon grabs Whitefish Bay title at 189.
If there was a victory lane at the Germantown High School gym, it would have been snarled in a traffic jam consisting only of Port Washington wrestlers on Saturday at the North Shore Conference wrestling tournament. The Pirates won eight weight classes and finished second in three others to pile up 284 points, ahead of rival Germantwon (252.5). Nicolet's John McKay won the 215-pound class as the Knights finished sixth with 101.5 points. Senior Alex Dieringer was, not surprisingly, the Pirates' most dominating wrestler. He won state titles at 103 pounds as a freshman and 140 last year. In the NSC meet, he competed at 152 and hardly broke a sweat. After a bye in the first round, Dieringer pinned Brendan Hanrahan from Whitefish Bay in 21 …

Aiken scored late goal to bump the Storm to a 3-2 victory.
Joe Aiken and his WNS Storm teammates apparently didn’t care that it was the Greendale Ice Force Senior Night. With just under five minutes left in the game, the Whitefish Bay senior scored the game-winning goal – his second of the night – to turn the tie game into a 3-2 Storm victory in front of a huge crowd at Wilson Park Friday night. “We let Aiken get wound up, and he’s too quick and has too many good moves and make you look silly out there,” said Ice Force coach John Kennedy. “He had a nice goal on that third one, went around about a hundred feet and scored a nice goal and beat everybody. (He) beat two defensemen and our goalie.” The Ice Force jumped out to an early lead in the first period as they seemed energized by the Oak Creek…

The WNS Storm beat Kenosha 3-2 behind the intrepid play of Nicolet goalie Sean Leahy.
Who knew high school hockey could be so exciting? The WNS Storm overcame a late onslaught by the Kenosha Thunder and held on for a 3-2 win at the Kern Center on Monday night. The WNS Storm is a co-op team with players from Shorewood, Whitefish Bay and Nicolet. The Storm jumped out to an early lead with a wrist shot from Whitefish Bay freshman Andy Krugler. He was assisted by Bay senior Joe Aiken, who always seems to be around the puck at the right time, and sophomore Drew Kneisel from Shorewood. There was a lot of intensity in the air, which certainly made Storm head coach Maco Balkovec content — for the moment. It was a game motivated by pride as Kenosha stripped the Storm of a win earlier this season when they enjoyed an early lead and…
