The senior forward had gamehighs of 29 points and 22 rebounds as the Raiders trailed only briefly in the first period before taking charge.

“When we get the mismatch inside, we have to go to him,” said Kiel head coach Jamie Arenz about Winkel, a Second Team All- Eastern Wisconsin Conference pick a year ago.

“Tonight, Jacob took it upon himself to do the job.”

Tiger head coach Eric Worth said his team was well aware of what Winkel could do.

“We couldn’t handle Winkel. We knew all about him and he was the difference in this game.”

A pair of Austin Edge free throws gave Howards a 7-6 lead with 2:56 left in the first period. Winkel then led a 7-0 Kiel run to end the period with Bryce Gannigan’s three-point hoop ending that surge. The lead expanded to 12 points in the second quarter.

Ethan Brinkman’s basket with five minutes left in third quarter brought the Tigers to within three at 31-28. That’s as close as they would get to Kiel.

Brinkman led Howards with 20 points and Edge added 10.

Howards was just 15-for-50 from the floor for 30 percent which is not to Worth’s liking.

“When you’re as small as we are you have to knock down the shots against the bigger, physical teams, and 30-percent shooting won’t get it done,” he said.

“The next three games [all in the Central Lakeshore Conference] could determine where we go with our season,” added Worth.

The Tigers are now 6-5 overall after winning their first four games.

Arenz also had praise for his backcourt saying, “All around, I think Trenton Nickel had his best game tonight. And Carter [Voelker] was a little off tonight, so Terren Driscoll picked it up.”

Driscoll had 12 points for Kiel, now 5-8 overall.

Edge led Howards in assists with four. CJ Berg had a team-high 11 rebounds and Edge contributed six.


In a thrilling finish to the junior varsity game, Kiel rallied past How- ards Grove, 42-41, as Parker Brack scored on a tip-in for the winning basket with six seconds left.

Riley Feldmann had 11 points to pace Kiel. Leading the Tigers were Derrick Grimm, Devin Gallenberger, Travis Stanczyk and Nick Brickner, each with seven points.

In the freshman contest, Howards Grove led from the start and cruised to a 51-34 win over the Raiders. Bryce Pedrin scored 26 points for the Tigers while Kiel was led by Trevor Vogel with 16.
