Team of the Week includes LB O’Boyle

Carthage junior linebacker Kevin O’Boyle on Tuesday was named to the Team of the Week.

O’Boyle collected 11 tackles, including seven solo and 1.5 for a loss, to lead the Carthage defense in last week’s season opener at UW-Oshkosh. The Plainfield, Ill., native also returned a blocked field goal 85 yards just before halftime to give the Red Men a 13-10 lead.

Carthage is idle this week and hosts its home opener Saturday, Sept. 21, against Carroll at noon.

UWP’s Bruer earns honor for defense

UW-Parkside sophomore defender Henry Bruer was named the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week for the opening week of the men’s soccer season.

Bruer helped the Rangers go 1-1, as he made a goal-line clear on what would’ve been the tying goal Thursday in a season-opening 2-1 victory over Quincy.

On Sunday, although Lewis beat Parkside 1-0 in overtime, Bruer helped hold the Flyers scoreless for over 105 minutes.

Anvelink victorious in Watson Classic

Taking advantage of a third restart, Navarino’s Nick Anvelink topped Waukesha’s Mitch McGrath on Saturday at the Wilmot Raceway to win the Dirt Kings Late Model Tour Jim “Wildman” Watson Classic.

McGrath, bidding for back-to-back wins at Wilmot after winning the 2018 Watson Classic, led every lap until a series of cautions and a call-back on a restart for a car going early set up the final two laps and Anvelink’s victory.

Other winners Saturday were Ryan Zielski of Oconomowoc in the AutoMeter Wisconsin WingLess Sprints, Tim Hamburg of Dixon, Ill., in the Modifieds and Cody Potter of Pell Lake in the Street Stocks.
