St. Joseph gets past Shoreland


SOMERS — For most of Friday night’s regular-season finale, both St. Joseph and Shoreland Lutheran seemed to be on the verge of breaking out.

And then in a blink, it was the Lancers who did.

Midway through the fourth quarter, senior Alec Gessert scampered for a key 36-yard punt return to the Pacers’ 18-yard line, and four plays later, St. Joseph’s Wyatt Draper punched in the game-clinching touchdown to lift the Lancers to a hard-fought 14-3 Metro Classic Conference victory.

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Where: Shoreland High School, 9026 12th St., Somers

MMQB: Lancers not worrying


St. Joseph’s chance to win its first conference championship since 2005, when it was a member of the now-defunct Lakeshore Conference, is all but over following the Lancers’ 24-13 loss to Racine St. Catherine’s on Friday night at Ameche Field on Friday night.

While St. Catherine’s (6-2, 5-1 MCC) clinched at least a share of the Metro Classic Conference title with the win, St. Joseph (5-3 overall) dropped into a three-way tie for second in the eight-team league at 4-2 with Greendale Martin Luther (6-2 overall) and Racine Lutheran (5-3 overall).

Shoreland drives stall in loss to Greendale Martin Luther

GREENDALE — Three times the Shoreland Lutheran football team drove into Martin Luther territory in the fourth quarter on Friday, only to stall a short time later.

Pacers make it look easy


SOMERS — Without the benefit of a preseason scrimmage, there could have been a little rust for the Shoreland Lutheran football team to deal with in its season opener Friday night.

If there was, it certainly didn’t take the Pacers long to shake it off.
