The Stoughton High School boys basketball team was on a mission Tuesday, and despite trailing Badger South rival Oregon at halftime, the Vikings’ offense opened up a 15-point lead in the second half.

Stoughton went on to win its sixth conference game 76-62, thanks in large part to five double-digit scorers, led by sophomore Max Fernholz’s 17.

“We knew we had to score and coach came in at halftime and told us about our pressure and things we needed to do for defensive stops. Things just clicked,” Fernholz said. “We came out and scored 14 points on six possessions. We hit four (3-pointers) in a row, and we just kept feeding off that energy.”

Girls hockey: Icebergs end chippy game with Brookfield in a stalemate

The Icebergs girls hockey co-op twice rallied from a two-goal deficit Monday evening inside the Mandt Community Center, but ultimately ended up settling for a 4-4 tie against non-conference Brookfield Glacier.

Trailing 4-2 with a little less than nine-and-a-half minutes remaining, the Icebergs received a spark from senior defenseman Maddy Hess, who scored twice over a four-minute span to force overtime.

 “They were getting physical and kind of beating me up a little bit and I got mad and ended up skating down and scoring the first goal,” Hess said. “My dad always tells me to cut in and shoot. I did and it went in.” 

Getting Brookfield’s Grace Elliot moving to her right, Hess slipped the puck between the goalie’s legs to pull the Icebergs within a goal with four-and-a-half minutes remaining.

The Stoughton High School wrestling team came close to another tournament title Saturday at the annual Zelinski Memorial Duals at Whitnall High School in Greenfield. Despite falling to 11th-ranked Mukwonago to finish second overall, the meet really came down to a couple of bonus points.

The third-ranked Vikings lost to Mukwonago 34-32 in a dual where both teams won seven matches. The one difference is that Mukwonago had four pins to Stoughton’s one.

The rest of the tournament was quite successful, as the Vikings knocked off fifth-ranked Sauk Prairie 51-19 and added wins over West Allis Central (51-20), Fond du Lac (66-6) and Whitnall-Greendale (75-3).
