Greyhounds Advance to Sectional Finals after Topping Whitewater

Shorewood secured a spot in the WIAA sectional finals Thursday night, after dominating the Whippets Thursday night 5-1. They have a chance to reach state for the first time since 2004.

The rain came in sideways all night, but it didn't seem to bother the Greyhounds Thursday as they cruised to an easy victory over Whitewater and advanced to the sectional finals round of the Division 2 WIAA playoffs.

After running into the Catholic Memorial last year in regionals, Shorewood is just one win away from its first state tournament berth since 2004. That year, the Greyhounds lost in the state championship game.

Thursday night, Shorewood scored early and often. Its first goal came just inside the 4-minute mark, courtesy of midfielder Josh Landers. The Greyhounds ended the first half with three goals, shutting out the Whippets.

Shorewood slipped two more goals past Whitewater in the second half, but and allowed the Whippets' lone goal in the 48th minute.

The Greyhounds had four different players score; defenseman Bobby Kohl scored twice.

Pewaukee will clash with the Greyhounds on Saturday in sectional finals. The game starts at 2 p.m. at Whitewater High School. Shorewood lost its regular game against the Pirates.

Funny that they played the Whippets - at first I thought we were scrimmaging our own Intermediate school team! Whippets are the SIS teams in Shorewood - SHS being the Greyhounds...
