The Woodward-Granger Hawks baseball squad didn’t have to wait to long for their first victory this season.
On the road at Webster City on May 23, the Hawks (1-1) nabbed a close 4-2 victory over non-conference opponents, the City Lynx (1-1).
The May 23 contest pinned Hawks starting pitcher, sophomore Brandon Worley, against the home team’s senior, Cameron Moon.
Worley got the best of the Moon and the Lynx as he recorded a complete game. He threw 108 pitches, gave up two runs on four hits, struck out 10 and walked just one batter.
At the plate he was a perfect 3-for-3 with a RBI. Both junior Hunter Pifer and Reese Jamison had two hits a piece. Sophomore Jay Dorenkamp had a hit.
The Hawks struck first with a single run in the first inning. They then added two more runs the following inning.
Worley held the Lynx without a run through the first three innings, In the fourth the home team scored a run to make it a 3-1 game.
The road team increased their lead to two after scoring in the top of the sixth. Worley allowed a run in the bottom of that frame, but then closed the book on a solid performance.
Three other Hawks, senior Cole Theisen, junior Joe Rhodes and sophomore Bryce Achenbach, each recorded a RBI.
The Hawks are in action today as they opened up their 2017-2018 season with a West Central Activities match against the AC/GC Chargers.
