An athletic Wisconsin Lutheran team used outstanding scoring balance and a good defensive effort by senior guard Larry Moore to beat New Berlin Eisenhower, 60-42, and run away with the WIAA Sectional Championship and a trip to the state tournament at the Kohl Center in Madison on Friday and Saturday.
After scoring five points in the first quarter, New Berlin Eisenhower junior guard Reed Timmer looked like he was on his way to another big scoring night, but Moore, at 5-foot-6 inches, then held Timmer to two, three and four points in the last three quarters, for a total of 14 points.
A second voter forum for the remaining New Berlin mayoral candidates - Mayor Jack Chiovatero and Alderman David Ament - will be held from 1 to 2 p.m. March 9 in the New Berlin West Middle/High School library, 18695 W. Cleveland Ave., by the Rotary Club of New Berlin.
Recordings of the forum will be available at City Hall and at the New Berlin Public Library. This is the fifth year the Rotary Club has been sponsoring voter forums.
Three mayoral candidates were eliminated in the Feb. 19 primary election.
New Berlin Eisenhower rallied behind the offense of Reed Timmer and the defense of Corbin Messman and defeated Catholic Memorial, 52-43, Thusday at Greenfield and advanced to the WIAA Division 2 sectional finals at 2 p.m. Saturday.
The two top seeds - Eisenhower (22-3) and Wisconsin Lutheran (20-5) - will meet at West Allis Central to decide who advances to the state tournament. Wisco defeated Milwaukee Washington, 52-48, to advance Thursday.
After seeing Timmer score nine points in the first quarter, Memorial's Andre Bodden helped shut him out in the second period, as the Crusaders overcame a 14-11 first-period deficit to take a 24-20 lead into intermission.
Bodden added two baskets to start the second half for a 28-20 lead, before Timmer took over the game, as he has done many times throughout his three-year career.
First he scored on an inbounds play, drew a foul and tossed in a free throw. Then he sank two more free throws, scored on a drive, was fouled and finished another 3-point play and drilled a 3-pointer to complete a personal 11-0 run for a 31-30 lead.» Read Full Article
