All-County football team to be revealed Thursday


The 51st annual Kenosha News All-County football team will be revealed in Thursday’s editions.

The team was selected by the Kenosha News sports writers, led by Andrew Horschak, with input from county coaches.

This team has seen many of Kenosha County’s greats honored through the years. Familiar names such as Melvin Gordon, Trae Waynes, Kyle Sebetic, Zac Epping, Brian Cotton, Adrian Davis, Vince Zullo and Craig Cummings have made All-County.

Shoreland football team gobbles up conference honors

The Shoreland Lutheran football team was rewarded handsomely for its best season ever.

The Pacers, who advanced to the semifinals of the WIAA Division-5 playoffs, absorbed six spots on the All-Metro Classic Conference first-team offensive and defensive units.

Pacers’ Johnson, IT’s Jones earn All-State mention

Denied any All-State mention a year ago, Kenosha County was recognized this season with two football players receiving honors.

When the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association revealed its All-State team on Monday, Shoreland Lutheran senior Trey Johnson and Indian Trail senior Christian Jones were among the 13 wide receivers named honorable mention.

Pacers poised to the end


RIPON — It’s not fun to be on the bad end of a blowout, as the Shoreland Lutheran football team was on Friday night in a 50-7 loss to Spencer/Columbus Catholic in a WIAA Division-5 state semifinal game at Ingalls Field.

Sure, the Pacers showed some understandable frustration on the sideline, but to their credit they remained remarkably poised. There were no shouting matches, no finger-pointing and most of the yelling stayed in the realm of encouragement.

Pacers absorb big loss in state semifinal


RIPON — Regardless of what happened on Friday night, this will go down as the most successful season in the history of the Shoreland Lutheran football program, at least for now.

But it came to an end in a WIAA Division-5 state semifinal game, and boy did it end in a hurry.

Department of defense


The ball-hawking skills may be put on the back burner.

Stopping a potent running attack will be priority No. 1 when Shoreland Lutheran (10-2) squares off with Spencer/Columbus Catholic (12-0) in the semifinals of the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association Division-5 football playoffs at 7 tonight at Ingalls Field in Ripon.

Shoreland defense came up big at crunch time


The Shoreland Lutheran defense came up big in key moments in the second half in Friday night’s 35-21 victory over host Marshall in the quarterfinals of the WIAA Division-5 playoffs.

After the Pacers increased their lead to 28-7 with 4 minutes, 43 seconds left in the third quarter, Marshall put together its longest drive of the game. On third-and-goal from the Shoreland 8-yard line, Marshall quarterback Adam Wehking was drilled by defensive end Steve Gierach as he got off a throw and was intercepted in the end zone by Jakob Thut.

Shoreland’s state semifinal game to be played in Ripon on Friday

Shoreland seniors enjoy golden year


Memories of the 2012 season are not pleasant for the seniors on the Shoreland Lutheran football team.

Hurting for bodies, second-year Shoreland coach Paul Huebner turned to freshmen Markus Held, Jared Perry, Keenan Robinson and Jakob Thut to fill out the varsity lineup.

Pacers pull off the upset


CEDAR GROVE — The turnaround continues for the Shoreland Lutheran football team. And the Pacers aren’t done yet.

Fifth-seeded Shoreland Lutheran advanced to the WIAA state quarterfinals for the first time in school history by upsetting top-seeded Cedar Grove-Belgium, 21-14, Friday in the second round of the Division-5 playoffs.

Panthers, Pacers face tough assignments in second round of playoffs

Technically, the Wilmot and Shoreland Lutheran football teams were underdogs in the first round of the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association playoffs.

Both seeded fifth in their respective eight-team groupings, the Panthers and Pacers hardly looked like longshots.

Pacers go back in time



The second postseason victory by the Shoreland Lutheran football program was eerily similar to the first one posted by the Pacers almost 10 years earlier.

Shoreland posts playoff shutout

BROOKFIELD — A vocal and frustrated Brookfield Academy fan summed up his team’s night perfectly.

Late in the third quarter, the Shoreland Lutheran football team held a 30-point lead and faced a fourth-and-1 near midfield. With the stadium silent except for the persistent pounding of raindrops, the fan reached his boiling point.

Shoreland pushes past Martin Luther

Pacers secure playoff berth

The Shoreland Lutheran football team secured a spot in the WIAA postseason with a 36-0 Metro Classic Conference victory over Racine Lutheran on Friday night in Somers.

The Pacers (6-2, 4-2 MCC) defeated the Crusaders (1-7, 0-6) for only the fourth time in 17 all-time meetings but routed them for the second year in a row (Shoreland won 47-8 in 2014).

Monday Morning Quarterback: Overtime adds to Shoreland-St. Joseph football rivalry


The football rivalry between St. Joseph and Shoreland Lutheran added a dose of drama to its short history on Friday night.

The teams squared off in their first overtime game with St. Joseph prevailing, 28-22, at Shoreland. The Metro Classic Conference co-leading Lancers have now won six of the nine meetings against the Pacers. In addition, they were also awarded another victory by forfeit in 2013.
