5/30 Sioux Central (Conference) W 7-4 (1-0 Conference)

Print Version

The shortened week started off with the Jaguars traveling two hours away to Peterson, Iowa to take on the pesky Rebels from Sioux Central.  A big game as it was the first conference game for each team which meant the aces were on the mound for both teams.  The Jags sent out their ace Nolan Johnson who got into trouble early in the first two innings allowing runners into scoring position but the senior calmed himself and got himself out of the jams allowing the Jags to get out of it without Sioux Central scoring a run.  From there it was the Jaguars striking gaining a 2 run advantage in the fourth inning.  Then with all the momentum it quickly changed around in the 6th inning as Sioux Central finally stuck and scored four runs, three of which were earned which shook the Jaguars.  Ahead the whole game the Jags could have buckled but they didn’t.  Gaining some confidence off a couple of walks, the Jaguars quickly got the bases loaded and did damage with it.  Senior Tommy Lennon had a huge double which scored two runs, Isaac Peebler was hit by a pitch and before you know it the Jaguars had put up five runs in the top of the seventh to regain their lead!   A remarkable game where the Jags could have laid over but they fought hard and came back for the huge conference win.  Tommy Lennon was the leader of the offense gaining two hits and scoring two runs.  Coledon Bethel, Xavier Nichols and Jaxon Myers all had a single and brought a runner around to score on those hits.  Not only did the Jags hit the ball but they did it at the right times.

                Defensively wise Nolan finished with a 1.31 ERA striking out seven while walking 4 batters.  Junior Coledon Bethel came in to finish the last two innings allowing seven hits with two earned runs.  A wild game and great comeback win and the Jags sealed their first conference win of the season.
