Win, loss, done

Both the Chatfield Gophers and Fillmore Central-Lanesboro Falcons were able to pull off quarterfinal wins in the Sub-Section 1AA East baseball tourney. Two-seed Chatfield jumped on seven-seed Houston early. Nate Vogen smacked his county-leading 5th HR of the year, a two-run shot in the first inning. From there, the Gophers piled it on, amassing a 9-0 lead after four innings. The 'Canes staved off the 10-run rule, but not defeat. Chatfield prevailed 10-4, bats accumulating 12 hits. Erik Hilgren had two and an RBI, Mitch Narveson had two and two RBI's, and Nate Skare had two and three RBI's (to go along with Vogen's 2-4, HR, 2 RBI day). The fifth seeded FCL Falcons matched their northern neighbor, mildly upsetting 4-seed St. Charles. Dan Gatzke was the hero of the day. The sophomore hit for the cycle (including his 2nd HR of the year) while driving in 4-runs. Zach Olstad added a pair of doubles and 3 RBI's. The Falcons also capitalized on a number of Saint errors. Pitcher Colton Hampel threw well enough (7 innings, 6 runs, 9 strikeouts) to notch his 7th win of the season, and to lead his team to a 9-6 victory. Both squads then moved on to the semifinals only to face let downs. FCL traveled to La Crescent to face the #1 seeded 19-3 Lancers. The score was tied 3-3 thru 4 innings. But by that time, the Lancer's had pitcher Paul Johnson on the mound. In 5 2/3 innings, he thoroughly silenced the Falcons bats (0 R, 2 H, 11 K's). He struck out two batters in every full inning he worked. A three-run Lancer bottom of the fifth proved to be the offensive difference. The final was Falcons 3, La Crescent 7. FCL ends their season 8-14. Chatfield seemingly was in an advantageous position versus 3-seed Lewiston-Altura. Thru 5 innings, the Gophers led 9-6. The Cardinals then exploded for an 8-run sixth inning. They plated 5 more in the top of the seventh. Two L-A hitters had five hits (Clint Neumann, Zach Nelson). Two others had three (Jalen Heyer, Luke Buehler). All four hitters had at least 2 RBI's. The team finished with 22 hits. And though senior Erik Hilgren went out with a bang, smacking two home runs (bringing his season total up to four) and driving in four runs, he also was credited with the loss (having given up 7 runs in 2/3 of an inning of work). The Cards defeated the Goph's 19-11. Chatfield's season ends at 13-9.
