Huskies win conference title unbeaten

MANITOWOC – The New Holstein/Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah Huskies earned the outright Eastern Wisconsin/Packerland Conference boys soccer championship with an 8-2 thumping of Manitowoc Roncalli/ Two Rivers here Monday afternoon.

The Huskies finished 9-0 in the conference and 17-3-1 overall for the regular season. This is the second season for the conference. NH/ EL-G, which finished second to Sturgeon Bay in last year’s league race, has an unbeaten streak of 17 matches.

Senior Tyler Schultz and junior Noah Ruh, both EL-G students, powered the Huskies’ attack with a hat trick each. Contributing one goal apiece were Jacob Starnitcky (EL-G student) and Oren Kestell. Josue Valenzuela had one assist.

The Huskies led 20-6 in shots on goal. NH/EL-G goalie Jordan Bahr (EL-G student) made four saves. Roncalli/TR goalie Nick Seidl had 12 saves.

“I’m very, very proud of all our players for working and playing so hard up until this point in the season. All of it has paid off because we are now officially conference champs,” said Husky co-head coach Steve Conrad.

“We look forward to start the postseason with some more great games.”

Casey Henrickson and Justin Gottshall scored one goal each for Roncalli/TR.

Conrad pointed out the keys to the Huskies winning the conference title.

“I’m very proud of the whole team but one of our biggest keys so far was a very solid defense and the ability and willingness of some of our boys to go from defense to offense and then back again. So I would really say it’s the versatility of a lot of our players,” said the coach.

“If we look back you will see that we have scored a lot and really it’s been a lot of them, not just one or two, scoring the goals. And of course our keeper Jordan has done a great job all season also.”
