Coach says soccer team unable to recover from slow start in defeat in WIAA quarterfinal matchup.
Coming into the WIAA State Tournament, the Brookfield East boys soccer team looked to avenge their loss to eventual state champion Marquette in last year’s semifinals. Unfortunately, the Spartans won't get that opportunity. That's because East fell victim to a case of déjà vu in a 1-0 loss to Middleton in Thursday’s quarterfinal at Eihlein Soccer Park. East suffered the same result against the Cardinals just 22 days prior in a 1-0 loss. “Unfortunately, we started too slow and we never got away from that,” Brookfield East head coach Herbert Dundun said. “A simple defensive error (cost us). The first time we played them it was the same thing and that was it. They got the opportunity, took full advantage and that was the difference.” East (20…

Spartans play tough football on both sides to remain undefeated.
In it's simplest form, football is an easy game to understand. Two 11-man teams line up and hit each other. Whichever team pushes to other one backward has the advantage. On Friday night, Brookfield East was able to push Wauwatosa East backward, and that's why they won Brookfield East played a solid, physical football game and came out on top against Wauwatosa East, 29-0. With the win, their record now stands at 5-0, while Wauwatosa East falls to 1-4. For the Red Raiders, Friday's game was just another tough loss in what is turning into a difficult season and their offense continued to struggle. Wauwatosa East receivers also had several key drops. This could be attributed to the temperature but head coach Jake Wolter says there's another …

Spartans stop Falls for their third shutout of the season.
One word could describe the Brookfield East defense this season — stingy. The Spartans continued their surprising start with an impressive 21-0 victory Friday night over Menomonee Falls in a Greater Metro Conference game. East improved its record to 4-0 and 2-0 in the conference. Falls dropped to 3-1 for the season and 1-1 in the Greater Metro. East has given up just one defensive touchdown all season. And, although they had the game well in hand in the fourth quarter, the Spartans weren’t about to give up anything. "It just feels amazing," East defensive lineman Alec James said. "Stay tuned for Brookfield East. We’re going to do some big things this season." Falls came into the game averaging 36 points per game. The Indians had little …
