Boys soccer: Fond du Lac, WLA, St. Lawrence, CWC advance to regional finals

By

The Fond du Lac High School boys soccer team got its postseason started on Tuesday with an 8-0 regional victory over visiting New London.

The Cardinals, which improve to 14-9-2 on the season. Keeper Jared Quimby didn’t need to make a save behind the Cards’ defense.

The Cardinals got a pair of goals from Jordan Moehn and Casey McArdle. Fondy led 3-0 at the half after goals from Brock Lisowe, Brennen Davies and Moehn’s first of the game.

Lisowe, McArdle and Brett Stuck all had a couple of assists for the Cardinals, which go to 14-9-2 on the season.

“Brock Lisowe, Casey McArdle, and Jordan Moehn caught fire,” said Fondy coach Greg Winkler. “Defensively, we were rock solid allowing Jared Quimby his 10th shutout and the defense their 11th.”

Moehn and McArdle ran off three goals in the first 10 minutes of the second half, then Elliot Pieper and Connor Reams finished off the scoring.

“In the second half, when we played they way we are capable of, we put two goals in a minute span and then three more in 2 minutes. We looked like we were ready to play playoff soccer in the second half.”

Fondy hosts Hartford at 7 p.m. on Thursday.

DIVISION 3

WLA 4, Omro 0

WLA got some needed separation in the second half of the team’s Division 3 regional semifinal victory against visiting Omro.

Richie Schultz put the fourth-seeded Vikings (15-5-3) on the board in the 8th minute flicking a pass from Jeran Huey into the goal, just before an Omro defender could clear it.

The game stayed 1-0 until the 49th minute when defender Timo Haupt made a run up the right side and put his shot off the far post and in.

“Until Timo’s goal, it was really anybody’s ball game, but after that we seemed to have them back on their heels and we got the two late goals to ice it,” said WLA coach David Haag.

Schultz finished a pass from Garret Clary in the 65th minute and Aaron Markgraf tapped in a rebound for the final goal in the 66th minute.

St. Lawrence 6, Kohler 2

Kohler was within one goal before Danny Alejandre put three past the Kohler goalie in a 3 minute span to send the fifth-seeded Hilltoppers (11-7) to a regional final.

Danny Hernandez scored St. Lawrence’s first two goals and Jose Limon gave the hosts a 3-1 halftime lead in the 34th minute.

“We came out tentative and as the game wore on we went back to attacking and controlling the midfield,” St. Lawrence coach Dave Bartel said.

He added that the defense was solid despite the two goals allowed.

CWC 4, Lake Mills 0

The second-seeded Crusaders got two first half goals from Cody Zonnefeld, and a total of three assists from Lucas Vander Berg as CWC advanced to host Wayland Academy on Thursday.

“I thought we spread the ball around very well and really passed well, particularly in the opening half,” said CWC coach Gregg Zonnefeld. “Their keeper had a whale of a match, with numerous great saves, or the score would have been much different.”

Luther Prep 9, Lomira 0

The visiting Lions finished the season with a 5-13-3 record.
