Calian Schrader tallied five goals in three games, a stingy backfield gave up just one goal all day and Sheboygan North’s boys soccer team sailed to a 3-0 record in its own Raider Invite on Saturday.
“We played very well today against some very good competition,” North coach Tim Eirich said. “The defense played outstanding again today — they really didn’t allow many shots on goal.”
North started with a 3-0 win over West Bend West on two goals by Schrader and another by Ross Taggart. Both players had a goal apiece in a 2-0 win over Franklin.
Schrader scored twice more and Dustin Garbe lent another goal in a 3-1 finale win over Racine Horlick. Schrader, Michal Baca and Logan Strysick had assists on the day.
“He’s just a kid who works extremely hard and creates opportunities for himself,” Eirich said of Schrader. “… He’s so strong and fast, defenses have a hard time once he gets past them trying to slow him down.”
North improves to 12-1 overall.
The Redwings finished 0-2-1 at the Raider Invite after losing 2-1 to Racine Horlick in the opening contest — Antonio Gurrola scored South’s goal — and tying Appleton East 1-1 in the second game.
South advanced to the consolation match after a shootout win against East, but lost 1-0 to Winnebago Lutheran.
Howards Grove 4, Campbellsport 1
Howards Grove got scores from four different players in the non-conference win.
Ben Dehne scored in the 14th minute to tie the game at 1-1. Teammates Dakota Rabe, Derrick Grimm and Jeremey Berglund scored in quick succession — between the 66th and 69th minutes — to help push the Tigers (8-4, 4-1 Central Lakeshore Conference) to the win.
Campbellsport took an early lead on a 13th-minute goal. CJ Berg tallied seven saves in the Tigers’ net.
“I thought our guys came out a bit overconfident in today’s game,” Howards coach Todd Fischer said in a statement. “Once we were scored on the boys kicked it in. We kept trying to force goals in the middle when crossing really was where we were successful. It was a good reminder to never take any team for granted.”
