A crucial Flway-Conference baseball doublehader took place in Rosendale Saturday, pitting league-leader Winnebago Lutheran against second-place Laconia.

The Vikings won a pitcher’s dual of a game 1, 1-0, while the Spartans bounced back to win the second game 6-2.

The split moves WLA to 13-7 overall and 10-3 in the Flyway, while Laconia is now 12-4 (10-4). Kettle Moraine Lutheran also is in contention for the conference title at 9-3 in the league.

Game 1’s only run came off the bat of Vikings’ Justin Serwe, who had a two-out, RBI-single to right field in the top of the sixth inning that scored Brandon Schilling.

WLA senior pitcher Maustin Otterstatter was nearly flawless, throwing seven scorless innings and a one-hitter with no walks while recording 12 strikeouts in 82 pitches.

In game 2, the Vikings led 2-0 before Laconia scored four runs in the bottom of the third inning — only one of them earned — and the Spartans added two insurance runs in the sixth. Jake Huebschman picked up the win, giving up three hits in four innings before Jordan Behm pitched three scoreless frames to close the game out.

“After losing that first one, I was glad to see the kids didn’t bury their heads or give up,” Laconia coach Greg Smit said.

WLA travels Wednesday to Omro, where a win would clinch at least a share of the Flyway title.

“We’ve put ourselves in a position as a very young team to accomplish our first goal — to win a conference championship,” Vikings coach Mike Seibel said.

Fond du Lac at FVA meet: The Cardinals chose the season’s biggest meet to date for their best one, shooting a season-low 316 at Wander Springs Golf Course in Greenleaf.

“It was a great day to watch them play,” Fondy coach Jim Flasch said. “Everyone’s starting to show their true colors. I think we’re a better team than what some of our earlier scores have shown.”

Neenah’s Sam Galloway and Oshkosh West’s Logan Handy tied for first with a 71, and Galloway took medalist honors after winning a one-hole playoff.

Appleton East won the meet and leapfrogged Oshkosh West to finish first for the FVA championship.

Next up for Fond du Lac is a division 1 regional Tuesday at West Haven Golf Club in Oshkosh, beginning at 9 a.m.

Horicon 3, Oakfield 1

In a nonconference matchup featuring the second-ranked team in division 2 (Horicon) and the fifth-ranked team in division 4 (Oakfield), the Marshmen handed the Oaks their first loss of the season Saturday in a defensive game.
