The Lancers had a tough draw to open their season, as they hosted the defending WIAA Division-4 state runner-up Hilltoppers in a Metro Classic Conference match at Madrigrano Gymnasium on Tuesday.

Catholic Central won by scores of 25-12, 25-14, 25-20.

Tori Schuler (10 kills, 13 digs), Sydney Antonneau (13 digs), Ellie Schuler (17 assists) and Marti Harrington (11 digs) led St. Joseph.

Elkhorn 5, Central 1

The host Falcons dropped their Southern Lakes Conference and season opener to the Elks on Tuesday night.

Elkhorn, which won the SLC and reached the WIAA Division-2 state semifinals last season, led 2-0 at halftime. The lead grew to 4-0 before Central got on the board in the 82nd minute.

Joey Pflug played a through ball to Dom Arturi, which drew a foul in the penalty area, and Dylan Bruni buried the penalty kick into the lower right corner.

“This was the first game of the season, and we knew going against a tough opponent with an untested formation and new players up and down the lineup was going to be a strong test,” Central coach Jon Kao said. “Despite that, the boys performed admirably, and we were able to correct issues that emerge only when you play other teams at full speed.”
