The Hawks offense awoke for two 13 run outings against the Tigers.

In their double-header on June 7, the host Woodward-Granger Hawks (4-4, 3-2) put up 13 runs on 10 hits to take game one against conference foe the Guthrie Center Tigers.

W-G opened up the game with an eight run first inning and then scored three more runs in the second and third. They added their last two runs in the fourth for a dominating 13-0 lead.

Hawks Jackson Larson made the best of his start, giving up just one unearned run in the fifth off two hits while striking-out one and walking another in a short-ended five inning contest.

Race Brant, Brady Aunspach and Colt Palmer were tied with two hits a piece. Both Brant and Palmer drove in three runs.

Marcus McConahay, Cole Theisen, Austin Scharlau and Matt Buch combined for four of the team’s total hits.

It was deja-vu for the Hawks in game two at Guthrie Center. Again, the team shelled-out 13 runs to the Tigers two for the 13-2 victory.

W-G took advantage of their five hits with four runs in the first inning, two in the second and a six more in the third to take an early 12-2 lead.

Scharlau led the team in hits after a 2 for 3 performance. Larson, Theisen, and Cole Moran each had a hit. Theisen drove in a team high four runs.

Austin Ober got the starting nod and worked all five innings, fanning eight, walking two and allowing two unearned runs.

The team is off until June 9, when they play another double-header at Wooodward Academy.
