6-22 South Central Calhoun W 1-0 (9-7) (4-4)

Print Version 

             The lone game of the rained out week of baseball for the Jaguars saw them traveling to Lytton for a conference match up.  It was a special night as the Titans and the Jaguars as they both honored fallen police officer Justin Martin who tragically died while on duty for the Urbandale Police Department.  The night saw a tribute to the family and both sides wore special shirts that honored him.  The money earned from shirts all went to a scholarship fund in his name.  The event was spearheaded by Titan coach Nate Lamphier and Jaguar coach Brad Anderson, with both sides coming together to do something truly special. 

                The fans in attendance not only got an emotional remembrance but they were treated to one heck of game as well.  The story of the night was the Jaguars resiliency especially on defense as they seemed to just make plays even with bases loaded twice the Jaguars seemed to just find a way to get out of jams.  Senior Nolan Johnson was the leader of the defense pitching one heck of a seven inning shutout.  Nolan throughout gave us four hits, walking four batters, and coming up with some big pitches in big situations.  Along with those stats Nolan increased his strikeouts on the season with 8 more. 

                The offenses had their opportunities throughout but were very close to breaking it open.  A diving play in right field and a few hits which just sailed foul keep the game close.  The Jaguars lone run came in the 4th inning when Senior Nolan Johnson reached on a hit, then so did Jaxon Myers.  After a perfectly laid down bunt by Tommy Lennon the Jaguars had their chance.  A groundball hit to second scored pitcher Nolan Johnson for the lone run.  Besides Nolan and Jaxon recording hits, Jackson Housken clipped in one in his first at bat while Xavier Nichols added to double along with the long RBI of the game.

                An incredible game that saw many different plays which could have ended much differently for the Jaguars but they were able to come through and make some big plays when it counted.  So many things could have gone differently but the Jaguars seemed to have the will to win on the night.
