A strong effort against perennial power Brookfield East and an overtime victory over a solid Oak Creek team highlighted a good week for the Huskies.
Alexander Sykes tallied the winning goal in the 95th minute as Hale downed Oak Creek, 2-1, in double overtime Sept. 13. That was just the second loss of the season for the Knights.
Antonio Rodriguez scored the first goal of the contest, but Oak Creek (8-2-1 going into this week) tied it up just before the half on what Hale head coach Neil Dombrowski thought was a questionable call for a penalty kick.
The Huskies battled Brookfield East through 66 minutes of scoreless soccer before the Spartans finally broke through, then went on to a tough 2-0 victory Sept. 11.
Hale fell to 1-3 in the GMC, but just one of those games - a 5-0 loss to Marquette - could really be considered one-sided.
The Huskies blanked Brookfield Academy, 7-0, on Saturday behind two goals and two assists from Alex Kaul. Also scoring for Hale (10-5-1) were Bobby Saskowski, Sykes, Anthony Taylor and Jesse Freund.
