DeForest runs away from Eagles

Sauk Prairie’s football team had designs on a happy Homecoming last Friday.

Mighty DeForest, ranked eighth in the state in Division 2, had other ideas.

Fueled by a 21-point outburst in the third quarter and a 35-point second half, the visiting Norskies pulled away from Sauk Prairie and cruised to a 52-13 win.

The folks at Wisconsin Heights aren’t sure about school records.

This much is certain, though: what the Vanguards did last Friday bordered on remarkable.

Quarterback Ozur Kepler threw seven touchdown passes, including four to wide receiver Ace Ayers. That remarkable duo helped the Vanguards roll past host Sturgeon Bay, 74-38.

Eagles’ tennis team wins

Sweet revenge.

Sauk Prairie’s girls tennis team lost just one Northern Badger Conference dual meet a year ago — and that came to DeForest.

Last Tuesday, the Eagles got a measure of payback, topping the Norskies, 4-3.

The Norskies did exactly that.

Eagles’ spikers fare well

Sure, a title would have nice.

But after Sauk Prairie’s girls volleyball team settled for second place at their own tournament last Saturday, Eagles coach Amy Schlimgen wasn’t complaining.

Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end.

Heights falls to Belmont

There were no surprises.

No mysteries.

Just frustration.

Wisconsin Heights’ football team suffered its first loss of the season last Friday, falling to Belmont, 43-16.

The same two teams met during a scrimmage in August, so Heights (3-1 overall) knew just how good Belmont (3-1) was.
