EAST BOYS SOCCER
Brookfield East opened the week with a 4-1 win over West Allis Hale on Sept. 10 at home.
East got on the board first when Peter Raymonds scored off an assist of a long ball by Michael Fuchs only four minutes into the game.
At 8:40 Hale took a penalty pick into the left corner of the net just beyond the reach of keeper Drew Johnson to tie the score.
After that, it was all Brookfield East.
In the 11th minute Mick Kemnitz chipped the ball from the backfield to Austin Toy, who took it up the left side and passed it to James Knowles for the score.
At 27:27 Tommy Baxa shot a long pass across the field to the left side where Knowles took a hard shot into the right side of the net for another score and a 3-1 lead at intermission.
Shots on goal were taken by Henry Raymonds, Toy, Knowles and Peter Raymonds. Corner kicks were taken by Kemnitz.
In the second half, at 52:50, Knowles passed to David Loffredo, who shot it into the center of the net over the Hale goalkeeper's head.
In the second half, shots on goal were taken by Toy, Peter Raymonds and Loffredo. Aidan Haupt took a corner kick.
"I was happy with the win, but I know that we can do better," coach Herbie Dundun said. "Nathan Hale did a good job challenging us."
The Spartans dropped a 2-0 non-conference decision Saturday at Kettle Moraine in Wales in their second matchup of the year.
The teams were very evenly matched with both squads having a good share of possession time. The first score came in the 25th minute when the KM forward shot a high ball in the center of the net over Johnson's head. The second score came at 76:40 when KM scored on a penalty kick.
Johnson had two saves each half while shots on goal were taken by Knowles, Peter Raymonds, Ryan Dundun and Kemnitz. Goal saving ball clears where achieved by Kemnitz, Sam Kreul and Baxa.

EAST GIRLS GOLF
Brookfield East finished second Sept. 9 in the third Greater Metro Conference mini-meet at Westmoor Country Club.

Nina Galang led the way with a 41.
"I'm really excited for Nina Galang," coach Chris Minchk said. "Her scores thus far haven't truly reflected how well she's been striking the ball. I hope this round boosts her confidence and proves to herself that she can play this game with success."
Katie Hartman, who shot a 46, is in a 'good place,' Minchk said.
"Katie didn't play as well as she'd like, but she'll continue to get better," he said. "Katie is my analytical player. Having known Katie for the last four years, I know she's already dissected each swing during her round Monday and is working on the necessary adjustments before she plays again next week. She's in a good place right now with her game."
Patty Altenbach (52), Maddie McCann (56) and Claire Denton (61) rounded out the top five.
"As a team, our goal is to improve from match to match and I'm really happy with our progress so far."
