La Crosse Central 10-5, SPASH 7-4
LA CROSSE – Ian Grosch delivered with a walkoff single in the bottom of the seventh to complete a doubleheader sweep of Stevens Point Area Senior High on Saturday.
The Panthers led 7-0 in game one, but Central held SPASH scoreless after the third inning and scored seven runs in the bottom of the sixth to take the opener.
“Both games were winnable,” SPASH coach Kraig Terpstra said.
“We were right there. We wasted a good pitching performance by Cal (Giese) in the first game. You can tell we haven’t been outside other than our two games we played. It definitely showed today. We seemed to hit early in the game and kind of lost our edge later in the game. We competed and are going to be a good team.”
Cal Giese went 2 for 4 and Kevin Slezak also had two hits and two RBIs in game one for the Panthers. Mitch Mallek and Jon Barnes each had two hits in the nightcap for SPASH.
