The 200-yard freestyle relay team of Abby Chiesa, Shae Strom, Ally Leper and Jill Kolasinski claimed third with 1 minute, 57.08 seconds in the Panther Relays at Racine Park Saturday.

The troubles continued for the Bulldogs as they dropped a 49-8 game to Sussex Hamilton on Friday.

Central is 0-3, but the combined record of its foes is 8-1.

"We've played really good teams," head coach Dax Rodriguez said, "and until this game, we had been competing."

Rodriguez said his team played poorly against the powerful Chargers, moving the ball at times but dropping key passes and failing to convert a couple of short fourth-down plays.

Central was without two starters, including safety Dushun Glover, he said.

The lone touchdown came on a 35-yard pass from Will Konecny to Darren Walker in the fourth period.

Central next hosts winless Wauwatosa East at 7 p.m. Sept. 13 at the West Allis Athletic Field.

The Panthers went ahead at the 25-minute mark and Greenfield nearly answered early in the second half as David Castillo and Kyle Holmes both missed good chances inside the box, head coach Matt Ortloff said.

Goaltender Brett Szalacinski, who finished with 12 saves, kept his team in the game, and Castillo narrowly missed a shot with three seconds left.

Earlier this season, the Hawks lost to Kenosha Indian Trail 5-0 and went 1-1-1 in the Racine Case Invitational. The team beat Racine Park 1-0 as Holmes scored with an assist from Zach Szalacinski, tied Elkhorn 0-0 and fell 3-1 to Racine Case despite a goal from Miki Kosanovic, helped by Castillo.

"We have done a great job building up our attack but haven't been able to finish well enough yet," Ortloff said.
