WISCONSIN SPORTS BRIEFS:Packers' offense sputters again in preseason loss to Seahawks
Ellsworth Wisconsin 126 S. Chestnut St. 54011

GREEN BAY - Despite a quagmire of mistakes, the Seattle Seahawks escaped Lambeau Field with a win - defeating the Packers 17-10.

Both teams combined for 36 penalties in the game. Quarterback Vince Young, vying for the backup spot to Aaron Rodgers, orchestrated an 11 play, 80-yard drive that ended with a 1-yard touchdown pass to fullback Jonathan Amosa. With the game tied, Seahawks quarterback Brady Quinn sealed the win on a 42-yard touchdown pass with just under nine minutes to play. Once again, the first-team offense was unable to find the endzone. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was 4-of-7 for 41 yards in passing, while rookie running back Eddie Lacy had eight carries for negative five yards. Packers will look to work out those offensive woes by Thursday, when the team travels to Arrowhead Stadium for the final preseason game against Kansas City.

Rookie left fielder Khris Davis hit a pair of two-run homers to lift the Milwaukee Brewers past the Cincinnati Reds last night, 6-4. Davis was called up after Ryan Braun’s season-ending suspension and says he’s just “having fun with it”. Seems to be a working strategy… hitting a two-run home run in the sixth and eighth innings. Starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo threw for six innings, allowing three runs (two earned) and striking out 5. He allowed a two-run homer in the fourth, before Rob Wooten stepped in. Rest of the bench helped secure Wooten’s second win of the season.

High School football is back in the Badger state – 176 games to be exact. Defending state champions Sun Prairie had quite a scare, but manages to squeak out a win over Madison West by a final of 14-12. Other scores of interest include Fort Atkinson getting an overtime win over Reedsburg Area 34-27 and Living Word Lutheran putting up 66-points on Sheboygan Lutheran/Christian/Kohler in a shoot-out.

Former Marquette University  and NBA player Dean Meminger was found dead in a Manhattan hotel room yesterday. The 65-year-old guard was found unconscious and unresponsive at the Hamilton Heights Hotel, he was pronounced dead at an emergency room. Police say there were no signs of trauma and are still investigating his death. Meminger played for Marquette in the early 1970s, averaging six-point-one points per game and had a 78-9 record in three seasons with the Golden Eagles and leading them to the NIT championship in 1971. He was drafted by the Knicks in 1971 and helped lead the team to an NBA title in 1973. After his playing career, Meminger was a coach in the WNBA, college and other semi-pro leagues until 2004. Marquette Athletic Director Mike Broeker says he’s saddened by the loss of “one of the greatest players in the storied history of Marquette University basketball.”
