Lourdes 8, Princeton/Green Lake 7: Sam Gelhar hit a walk-off single in the seventh inning to lift the Knights past the Tiger Sharks in a Trailways-North Conference game.

Lourdes had a 5-0 lead going into the fifth, but P/GL rallied for six runs in the top half of the inning. After Lourdes tied things up in the sixth inning, thanks to a Nathan Ruegsegger sacrifice fly, the Tiger Sharks scored one in the top of the seventh to take a 7-6 lead.

Then in the seventh, Gelhar hit a bloop single to center field, driving in the winning run. Michael Godfroy scored the first run in the inning thanks to an error by the third baseman.

Dougie Ryan, Evan Ganther and Gelhar each had two hits while Nathan Ruegsegger and Gelhar provided two RBI each.
