Kayser's 3 goals propel Elkhorn soccer
Jordan Kayser took charge Thursday night to lead Elkhorn High's boys soccer team into the WIAA Division 1 sectional semifinals.
Kayser sored three second-half goals as the Southern Lakes champions broke away from a 1-1 tie to defeat Lake Geneva Badger, 4-1, in a regional championship game at Elkhorn.
That gives the second-seeded Elks (18-4-1) another home game next Thursday when they host Kenosha Bradford at 6:30 p.m. in the first round of the Bradford Sectional.
After John Stopple opened the scoring for Elkhorn just three minutes into the regional semifinal game, Ramises Rogada tied it for Badger with a goal two minutes later.
That's the way the first half ended, and Kayser took over in the second half.
