TR's Greene nets hat trick in win

By

After returning from a first-half injury, the Two Rivers boys soccer team’s Cameron Greene scored three goals and had one assist as the Raiders defeated visiting Plymouth 5-2 on Tuesday.

Entering the game tied in the Eastern Wisconsin Conference standings, the winner was awarded the No. 4 seed in the upcoming WIAA Division 2 regionals.

Greene, who was taken out of the game in the 30th minute due to an injury, returned in the 33rd minute and passed to teammate Peter Gesch for the Raiders opening score in the 34th minute.

Greene notched his first goal one minute later on an assist from Tyler Shallow to make it 2-0 heading into halftime.

Two minutes into the second half Plymouth scored, but Greene answered one minute later on an unassisted goal. Three minutes later Greene struck again, this time on an assist from Ashton Novy.

Novy later scored in the 74th minute on an assist from Shallow to round out Two Rivers’ scoring while Plymouth recorded its final score with two minutes remaining in the game.

Erik Wiegand, who made a critical save with 12 minutes left in the game on a penalty kick, made 18 saves for Two Rivers. The Raiders had 19 shots on goal to Plymouth’s 24.

Two Rivers (14-6, 10-3 EWC) will be at Kewaskum on Thursday for its final EWC game.

Roncalli 1, Wrightstown 0 (OT)

Just minutes into the first overtime period, host Roncalli’s Reed Waldhart scored on a penalty kick to give the Jets the Packerland Conference win.

Waldhart’s penalty kick came as a result of teammate Devin Veith being taken out by a Wrightstown defender in the penalty box as he broke away into the open field.

The Jets had nine shots on goal to the Tigers’ eight. Zach Berres was in net for Roncalli (10-10-1, 7-8 PC) and made six saves.

“It was a stupendous game,” Roncalli coach Donna Hodous said. “It was a really good game. Both sides players really well.”

The Jets will next be at Southern Door on Thursday for their final conference game of the season.
