STEVENS POINT – The Marshfield boys soccer team had a rough opening game to its Wisconsin Valley Conference schedule as it lost 10-0 to Stevens Point at the Portage County Youth Soccer Complex on Thursday night.

Marshfield was outshot 17-5, with all five of its shots on goal saved by Stevens Point goalkeeper Ethan Manzke.

Ricky Perez scored four times, and Keondre Porter and Ben Yang each scored twice for the Panthers. Perez added two assists, and Isaac Williams and Lio Perkins each added goals for Stevens Point (2-2, 1-1 WVC).

Austin Mannigel had seven saves in goal for Marshfield.

Marshfield (1-2 overall) returns to action Tuesday against Wisconsin Rapids. The game, at Griese Park, begins at 5 p.m.

“Despite the loss there were some positives to take from the game,” Marshfield coach Steve McCann said. “The boys played hard to the end of the game. We figured out more about some of our players’ strengths and weaknesses.

“We are on a learning curve right now that is steep and doesn’t get any easier when we host Wisconsin Rapids next Tuesday.”

MARSHFIELD – After a ragged start, the Marshfield volleyball team came together to pull out a sweep in its Wisconsin Valley Conference opener Thursday night.

The Tigers won 25-21, 25-18, 25-3, to win their WVC opener against Wausau East at Marshfield High School.

Wausau East ran off six-straight points to take a 13-7 lead in Game 1 before the Tigers rallied.

Two aces by Corianne Johnson and three more from Jordyn Wilcott helped Marshfield build a 19-16 lead. An ace from Alexis Schnitzler and a kill by Karly Nikolai finished off the win and set tone for the rest of the match.

“We played some tough competition last weekend,” Marshfield coach Dawn Sadowska said. “It was hard to have losses (3-7 at the Sun Prairie Invitational), but I think it really made us a better team. They’re used to playing faster and I thought our block coverage was really good.”

Marshfield jumped out to a 12-6 lead in the second game and pushed it to 21-12 after three aces from sophomore Kati Sadowska. A pair of East errors led to the final two points as the Tigers won 25-18.

In Game 3 it was all Tigers.

Marshfield scored 17 points in a row on the serve of Wilcott. She had five aces during the run, and finished with eight in the match.

Nikolai, who had 19 kills overall, and five in the final game for the Tigers.

“Our energy is really what was lacking last weekend,” Dawn Sadowska said. “We talked about that all week about how they were going to have to play with energy on the court and from the bench. I think they did a really good job all around on the things we worked on this week.”

Hannah Meverden had six block kills, and Corianne Johnson finished with 30 assists. Kaydee Johnson had 13 digs and Wilcott added 12 for the Tigers.

Marshfield hosts its annual invitational on Saturday and returns to Wisconsin Valley Conference action Sept. 7 at Stevens Point.

Columbus Catholic soccer heads to new conference, eyes another title

MARSHFIELD – The Marshfield Columbus Catholic soccer team will move into a new conference this season after taking two of the past three championships in the Mid-State Soccer Conference, which included an unbeaten title season in 2016.

The MSSC was disbanded and Columbus Catholic will now compete in the Central Wisconsin Conference. Much of the competition remains the same, with Wausau Newman Catholic, Northland Lutheran, Stevens Point Pacelli, Tri-County and Wisconsin Valley Lutheran moving on with Columbus to join Amherst/Iola-Scandinavia/Rosholt and Gresham/Bowler in the new CWC soccer alignment.

McDonell/Regis is the odd team out in the old MSSC and will now play an independent schedule, which includes a home-and-home series for the Dons.

“We are in a new conference this season, joining some old faces and some new faces in the Central Wisconsin Conference,” Columbus Catholic coach Jeff Edwards said. “I believe we will be competitive in the conference and have a real shot at repeating as champions. The postseason is all about the match-ups. We want to have a successful season to ensure a high-seed for the playoffs. Playing at home in front of our fans is important, so we want to get those home games.”

Columbus shoots for a fifth-straight WIAA regional title overall with an experienced roster that includes six seniors and three returning all-MSSC selections, including two-time first-team pick Calvin Brown.

Second-team selections Nadim Torbey and Nick Malovrh also are back for the Dons, who finished 20-3 overall and 12-0 in conference play before losing in the WIAA Division 4 sectional semifinals to Arcadia.

Columbus allowed just 17 goals all season, seven of which came in the 7-5 loss to Arcadia.

Torbey scored 23 goals, Malovhr had 12, and Brown 10 a year ago for the Dons.

The Dons did lose a lot of firepower, however, as Mid-State Player of the Year Tyler Fuerlinger, and fellow all-conference selections Tim Gruenloh, Ryan Dieringer, Charles Payant and goalkeeper Bailey Keffer all graduated.

“I think the strengths of this team will be midfield play and our possession of the ball,” Edwards said. “This team has shown great promise with 2-3 touches and distributing the ball to the target. Our depth is something we need to develop as the season progresses. Losing five seniors who were all-conference players has an impact. We need the underclassmen to step in and earn some playing time.”

Junior Kellen Heinzen is expected to step into the goalkeeper position.

Matt Olson, Noah Hansen, Zoe Stratman and Ella Schultz join Malovrh and Brown as returning seniors.

Juniors Anna Roewe and Evan Dieringer, sophomores Tom Nystrom, Dylan Porter, Annika Brown, Addison Baierl, Zach Olson, Jonah Keffer, Lucas Reigel, Olivia Mahoney and Kevin Nguyen, and freshmen Cole Heinzen, Wyatt Drexler, Sydney Mauritz and Kellen Delaney round out the roster and will compete for playing time alongside the veterans.

Columbus opened its season at the Central Wisconsin Christian Kickoff Tournament on Aug. 25-26, and finished 1-2, with Torbey scoring five goals in the three games, including a hat trick in the opener against Neenah St. Mary Catholic. Torbey added two more goals in the Dons’ win over Northland Lutheran on Aug. 28 in their CWC opener.

Columbus opens its home season Thursday against Gresham/Bowler. The game, at Griese Park, starts at 5 p.m.
