Overcoming deficits in both manpower and on the scoreboard, the Hustlin' Hawks pulled out a 3-2 victory over New Berlin West on Sept. 16.

Greenfield was hit with a red card just three minutes into the contest, then fell behind 1-0 in the 10th minute. Matt Defatte scored five minutes later on a rebound off a free kick.

David Castillo tallied in the 30th minute, dribbling past two defenders and placing the ball into the side of the net. One minute later, he duplicated that shot for a 3-1 halftime edge.

The Hawks then held off the Vikings with the help of several nice saves by goalkeeper Brett Szalacinski, including one on a low shot that took an odd bounce.

"Brett was in the air and the ball completely changed direction when it hit a bump," head coach Matt Ortloff said. "He was able to react quickly and push the ball wide. Not many high school goalkeepers will make a save like that."

Ortloff said the referee, a 30-year veteran, had not seen a team that was down a man and a goal come back to win.


The Huskies captured fifth place with 176 points in the 32-team Angel Invitational at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside on Saturday.

Hale beat a number of state-ranked teams, including Waukesha North and New Berlin Eisenhower, which had both beaten the Huskies in the previous meet.
