Prep baseball: SWU drops two; Pipestone Area splits

CANBY — Southwestern United put up a battle in both its games at the Canby wood-bat tournament Saturday, but the both times it was unable to come out on top.

In their first game of the day, the Wildcats took on the tourney host and fell 7-2. That was followed by a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Lac qui Parle Valley.

SWU took a 1-0 lead against Canby, but saw the Lancers pull ahead for good in the bottom of the third.

Dakotah Schmid took the loss, allowing just four earned runs on nin hits over six innings. Aaron Fest was 1-for-3 with a double while Jacob Getzel was 1-for-3 with a run scored.

A three-run second by LQPV along with a stellar pitching performance by Eagles’ starter Dylan Lillejord was more than SWU could overcome in game two.

Lillejord struck out seven and allowed only three hits in the shutout. Fest struck out two and allowed four runs in a complete-game loss.

Brady Haverman was 1-for-2 with a double while Isaac Fest went 1-for-2 with four stole bases.

MONTEVIDEO — Pipestone Area out-lasted Montevideo in an 11-inning marathon Saturday in the first game of their doubleheader to take a thrilling 8-7 win.

Unfortunately for the Arrows, it was the home team that picked up some momentum as it took the nightcap 13-1 to make it a split.

The first game went to extras tied at 7-7 before both pitching staffs were able to bear down to throw four consecutive scoreless innings. Finally, Pipestone Area scored in the top of the 11th and Bayley Colemer slammed the door in the bottom of the inning to get the win in relief.

Dominic Freese was 3-for-6 with five RBIs. Jacoby Hunt and Brady Bos added two hits each. Colemer struck out one in victory after taking over for Brayden Baartman in the ninth.

The Thunder Hawks took over in game two, running away with it in five innings with the help of six runs in the second.

Boyer Bouman took the loss. No Arrows batter had more than one hit as Spencer Hildahl scattered five hits and struck out four in the win for Montevideo.
