  • Grid Warriors stand toe-to-toe before bowing to Midgets

    WESCLIN'S MITCHELL KOLLMANN hits the hole on his way to a 20-yard first quarter touchdown run in Wesclin game versus Freeburg Friday night.

    Wesclin's football team put up a fight in its final home game of the season, but in the end, extra points proved to be the difference as Freeburg turned back the Warriors' upset bid 21-18.

    After Freeburg scored on the game's first possession, Mitchell Kollmann capped a Wesclin drive with a 20-yard burst through the right side of the line to pull the Warriors to within 7-6 after a failed extra point attempt.

    Freeburg tacked on another score in the second quarter to lead 13-6 at halftime. Justin Goff went 26 yards for a score to match Freeburg in the third quarter, then got loose for a 71-yard scamper in the fourth period to account for the final margin.

    The loss drops Wesclin to 2-5 for the season, with upcoming road contests at Central and Carlyle the next two weeks.

    Soccer Warriors close out season with pair of wins

    Wesclin soccer seniors and their parents were recognized and honored prior to the team's final home game last Tuesday against Freeburg.

    Wesclin's soccer team scored a senior night victory over Freeburg and edged Central 2-1 on the week to finish the regular season with a 12-6 mark, including winning an 11-of-12 rush to close out the year.

    The Warriors, top seed in the Central regional, now await the winner of a Carlyle-Lebanon play-in game for a regional semifinal contest originally set for Tuesday, but likely postponed based on the rainout of the play-in game.

    Wesclin squeezed out a 1-0 victory over Freeburg last Tuesday on Senior Night, with senior Josh Brown scoring the lone goal on an assist from Caleb Powell. It was a signature win for a Warrior program that hadn't beaten the Midgets in several years.

    On Thursday, Wesclin overcame a 1-0 halftime deficit to beat Central 2-1 in its final regular-season game. Greg Takacs and Caleb Powell scored second-half goals, with assists from Brown and Ken Hagarty, to pull out the win for Wesclin.

    "Our defense really showed up for us these past two games," said Wesclin coach Terry Calvert. "Mytchel Kuhl (filling in for injured senior Cody Johnson) is doing a remarkable job in goal, especially considering he's a freshmen. Our sweeper, Dillan Schorfheide, our stopper, Caleb Powell, and Luis Gonzalez, Will Smith, and Kenny Hagarty are all doing everything we can expect of them."

    Three from Wesclin qualify for golf sectional

    Wesclin is scheduled to be the host school for the sectional, which will be played at the Warriors' home course of Governors Run in Carlyle, but as of deadline the playing of the sectional was still up in the air, following Monday's epic rain.

    Three Wesclin golfers qualified for the sectional out of the Metro-East Lutheran regional. Jake Mueller's 83, Mike Thoele's 85, and Jordan Groennert's 87 all were good enough to advance individually, although Wesclin's team did not qualify.

    All tourney at Highland

    Wesclin senior volleyball player Allyson Isenhower was named to the all tournament team at the recent Highland Tournament for a third consecutive year this past weekend. The Warriors lost all five of their matches during the tournament.
