After defeating Wisconsin Valley Lutheran twice earlier this year, Gresham-Bowler fell 6-0 to the Wolves in its regular season finale at home Thursday.

The Wildcats went into halftime of the nonconference match trailing by two, but WVL kept the ball near goalkeeper Justice Paiser for the majority of the second half.

“Justice (Paiser) was the main part of our defense tonight,” Gresham-Bowler head coach Nate Boucher said. “He shouldn’t have had to see the ball as much as he did, but he was key to not letting them get more points than they did. He’s saved us a lot this season. Game scores, tonight included, would be much different without him protecting our net.”

The Wolves’ defenders, on the other hand, kept the ball from finding goalkeeper Rhein Zuelsdorff, who only had to make four saves in the second half compared to Paiser’s 10.

“I thought we should have matched up way better,” Boucher said. “Tonight, they came ready to play, and we just didn’t.”

Teammate fondly recalls Fred Opperman


Contributed Photo The 1957 Shawano High School boys basketball team defeated Madison West, 66-61, in the state championship game. The team included, from left, front row, manager Fred Wittlinger, John Cantwell, Martin Gharrity, Mike Dodge, Bernard Prusik, Tom Spohn, Harley Lyons, manager Larry Reisner; back row, assistant coach Walt Hein, manager Mike Mayerl, Jerry Klose, Fred Opperman, Loren Wolf, Dave Meyer and head coach John Kenney.

Contributed Photo Shawano High School teammates Fred Opperman and John Cantwell were part of the two-time state champion basketball team in 1956-57.

Editor’s note: John Cantwell, a 1958 graduate of Shawano High School, wrote this essay about Fred Opperman, 78, who passed away on Oct. 5. They were members of the SHS state championship basketball teams in 1956 and 1957. Shawano went 22-6 during the 1956 season and beat Appleton 74-68 in the championship game. The Indians were 27-2 during the 1957 season and defeated Madison West 66-61 for the title.

My friend and basketball teammate, Fred, was a gentle giant and a man of deep faith, which no doubt sustained him during his own severe health problems and the devastating illness that claimed his wife and star athlete daughter in close succession.

As Jones explodes, Packers’ offense kicks into high gear

If you stood at the podium as often as Mike McCarthy has done over the years, trying to characterize the brilliance of another two-minute drill executed by his quarterback, you’d eventually run out of adjectives, too.

“It was great,” the Green Bay Packers coach said after Sunday’s 35-31 win in Dallas. “I don’t know what else to say. I’ll have to expand my vocabulary.”

A quick dip over to thesaurus.com could have assisted his giving a more electrifying, sparkling, astounding or breath-taking account of the drive that capped another last-second win at AT&T Stadium.

But his point was well-taken. However it was achieved, a road win over the Cowboys was huge, and while five games into a season is far too soon to be thinking big thoughts, there was something about this game that had a watershed feel to it.

Zook places 54th in state tourney

Shawano senior Brianna Zook finished 54th at the WIAA Division 1 State Championship in Madison on Monday and Tuesday.

Zook, who was an individual qualifier after a fourth-place finish at sectionals, shot a 97 on Monday and ended with a 91 on Tuesday at the University Ridge Golf Course. Her overall score of 188 placed her in a tie for 54th out of 78 golfers.

“The first day I was a little bit off,” Zook said, “but by the second day I was getting used to the course and did better. It wasn’t really what I was hoping for, but I’ll take it.”

“We had a good time,” Shawano coach Dean Kuglar said, “even though she felt like she should have done better.”

Milton’s Mia Seeman won the individual Division 1 championship with a score of 145.

“I couldn’t ask for a better way to end my senior year of golf,” Zook said. “The experience was something I’ll never forget. It’s just a great memory for my high school golf career.”

Oconto defeats Bonduel in last nonconference match


Leader Photo by Jacy Zollar Bonduel High School junior Kylie Guenther and sophomore Megan Seitler attempt a double block during Tuesday’s home loss to Oconto.

Oconto defeated Bonduel in three sets Tuesday in Bonduel to close both teams’ regular season.

The match featured multiple lead changes in the first two sets before Oconto outplayed the Bears 25-13 in the final set to take the victory.

Bonduel played without its regular libero, Althea Berry, who is dealing with a possible concussion.

“We decided today to have our libero go through a concussion protocol, so the girls had to make quick adjustments in losing a key player,” coach Kim Strayer said. “That obviously will throw a team off a little bit. So I was really impressed with how my girls came together and played defense because Oconto’s the top-seeded team in our bracket, so they’re really tough.”

Hawks cap homecoming with 42-7 blowout win

Shawano celebrated its homecoming with a 42-7 blowout against Green Bay West on Saturday.

The Hawks (4-4, 3-4 Bay Conference) started quickly with a 54-second touchdown drive capped by Jacob Dickmann’s 6-yard run and then held West scoreless until the closing minutes.

“Scoring on our first possession was big for us,” Shawano head coach Alan Tomow said. “One of our goals for the week was scoring right away.”

After the opening burst, however, long drives ate up much of the clock.

“The final score doesn’t reflect the slow game,” Tomow said. “The field positions and weather may have been a part of that, but also the style. Both teams wanted to run the ball, and when you’re not moving it as far, it takes up the clock. Even though we were up 28-0 at half, it didn’t really feel like we really exerted ourselves.”

Roman Purull tallied 148 of Shawano’s 213 rushing yards, including 60- and 6-yard touchdown runs in the second half.
