Oostburg, ranked No. 10 in the Wisconsin Soccer Coaches Association Division 4 poll coming into last week, upped its Big East Conference record to 8-1-2 (11-3-4 overall). The Ti- gers, who had a four-game winning streak snapped, dropped to 9-2 in the BEC (11-5-3 overall).

Going into this week, Kohler leads the BEC with a 10-0 re- cord, with HG and Oostburg tied for second.

“Oostburg had a good game plan against us and really put pressure on our [top] scorers William Rautmann and Peter Grimm as they collapsed on them and played really aggressive,” said Tiger head coach Bob Peterson.

Matttilor Josiah gave the Dutchmen a 1-0 lead on a goal from close range in the 15th minute.

Oostburg upped its lead to 2-0 on a goal by Jacob Oppeneer in the 48th minute.

The Tigers made it 2-1 when Grimm scored a penalty kick with six minutes remaining.

“I felt we possessed the ball a lot more than them but rarely could we get any quality looks to get a shot off,” said Peterson.

“We played a solid game on defense.”

HG led 8-7 in shots on goal. Tiger goalie Austin Bender made five saves and Oostburg goalie Braden Van Ginkel had eight.
