Brookfield East closed out the week by going 0-2 in the Kettle Moraine Quad on Friday and Saturday.
The Spartans opened the quad with a 3-1 loss to Neenah on Friday.
The Rockets opened up a 2-0 lead at intermission with goals by Trevor Brost (Adam Bohlman assist) at 35:59 and Taylor Hoffman at 37:13.
East finally connected at 53:38, when Mick Kemnitz sent the ball to the left side of the goal and Ryan Toy connected to put the ball to the back of the net. But then Neenah's Adam Pohlman scored on a free kick for the final margin.
Appleton North then topped the Spartans, 2-1, on Saturday, as coach Herbie Dundun started only three regulars.
Once again the Spartans fell behind 2-0 at halftime on goals by North's Charles Sauve at 8:19 and a free kick by Gunnar Springer at 31:23.
East's Jonathan Stone,with an assist from Josh Breider, got the Spartans on the board at 66:52.
The Spartans were off their game, continuing to struggle in both games to finish the ball. Passes are there, but they could not put the ball in the back of the net.
East outshot North, 15-5, but only managed the one goal.
East's Ben Kosmider, who was injured on Friday, sat out on Saturday.
"I take full responsibility for the loss," Dundun said. "I tried to make some tactical moves that did not pan out. I am not happy with the outcome; however, I am proud of the effort the boys put out to rectify my mistakes."
