Falcons fly past Wilmot

PADDOCK LAKE — Now that’s how to overcome a first conference loss.

Three days after having to share first place in the Southern Lakes with Burlington thanks to an overtime loss to the Demons, the Central boys basketball team defeated visiting Wilmot, 73-45, on Friday.

“You’ve got to give Burlington credit, first of all,” Falcons’ coach James Hyllberg said. “They made three tough shots down the stretch. We watched film the next day, all the guys saw our mistakes, but we couldn’t focus on that game too long because Wilmot could get you too.”

PLEASANT PRAIRIE — Joey Trifone has skated as a defenseman for most of his organized hockey career.

“I think the last time I played forward was when I was a Mite (six years old),” said Trifone, a sophomore on the the Kenosha Unified hockey team.

Tremper’s Brandon Spencer already has one WIAA Division-1 state diving title to his credit — and while it’s still early yet, he’s certainly on track to make more noise at the end of his junior season.

Spencer beat his next closest opponent by nearly 75 points to finish first and highlight the local effort at Saturday’s 16-team Bradford Invitational.

Trump picks the Packers?

While watching the Inauguration Day ceremonies Friday morning, it caught my attention when one of the broadcasters said President Trump planned a relatively light weekend and would really get to work Monday.

Given his football background, I figured he must want to watch today’s NFL’s conference championship games.

PADDOCK LAKE – The Wilmot girls basketball team made sure there was no chance of an upset Friday in defeating host Central, 62-42, to remain in sole possession of first place in the Southern Lakes Conference.

A 22-6 run in the first half helped the reigning co-conference champion Panthers improve to 8-1 in the league and 11-3 overall.

Wilmot rolls past rival Falcons

For longtime Wilmot wrestling coach John Watson, the result of Thursday night’s rivalry matchup with visiting Central was a positive.

But he wasn’t necessarily thrilled with how the Panthers got there.

Missed chances

For the UW-Parkside men’s basketball team on Thursday night, it wasn’t the “what.” It was the “how.”

Losing to a top-10 team on the road in their fourth game in eight days wasn’t anything to be crushed about, but the Rangers were left shaking their heads over a game they had many chances to pull out.

Still work to be done
