Weston Hill of Prairie du Chien looks to pass Tuesday against Dodgeville-Mineral Point.

The Blackhawks’ Nolan Stram (12) moves in to defend on a soggy Bluff View pitch Tuesday.

Prairie’s Evan Teynor (4) battles for control of the ball.

Soccer team suffers
first loss of season
The Prairie du Chien boys soccer team hosted Dodgeville/Mineral Point United Tuesday night in a Southwest Wisconsin Conference confrontation.
The strong, well-matched teams played hard and fast on the soggy and soupy Bluff View field with both teams having multiple scoring opportunities through the first half, all denied by an effective defensive opposition. The first 45 minutes ended scoreless.
Tuesday was Parents Night, so at half the Blackhawks welcomed, thanked, introduced and recognized their extremely supportive parents.
The battle continued in the second half with injuries and fatigue starting to take its toll on the teams. It wasn’t until the 33rd minute that Dodgeville found a chink in the Prairie defensive armor and slipped a goal in just off left post.

COTR to stay in Bridgeport

By Correne Martin

Country on the River organizers have withdrawn their request from the city of Prairie du Chien to relocate to St. Feriole Island in 2017, according to an email the city received Tuesday morning.

For now, the country music festival, owned by Townsquare Live Events, will remain at the Bridgeport property where it’s been since 2012. The request to use the island will no longer be on the city’s Sept. 20 council agenda.

According to Prairie du Chien City Administrator Aaron Kramer, an email sent by Matt LaRose, vice president of Townsquare Live Events, read: “Thank you for all of your hard work on assisting us through the relocation process to St. Feriole Island. At this time, we are going to withdraw our request to relocate on the island.

“The Wisconsin DOT has given us our variance and allowed us to stay at our current site.

“I do encourage you and all members of the council to come out this year and see the event.”
