By Craig Olson - Morris, MN

The West Central Area baseball team lost a heartbreaker to Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa on Thursday in Morris when Ryan Illies launched a 2-run walk-off homer in the bottom of the seventh inning, however, the Knights came back strong in an elimination game against Ortonville, beating the Trojans 9-2.

Abe Peter (2-3, 2B, 2 RBI, R) and Gavin Kampsen (1-2, 2 RBI) also had good offensive days for the Jaguars as they made the most of their five hits in the first game.  Leaders for West Central Area were Levi Larkin (2-3, 2B, 3 RBI), Ross Anderson (1-3, 2B, RBI, R), Sam Gullickson (1-4, RBI), Mason Nibbe (1-4, 2B, R) and Teigen Moritz (1-2, BB, 2R).  Moritz (5.2IP, 2H, 4R, 2ER, 3K, 3BB) pitched well for the Knights.  Mason Nibbe took the loss.

Winning pitcher Grant Beuckens (6IP, 1H, 2R, 0ER, 9K, 1BB) was on his game for the Knights.  Ross Anderson was a perfect 3-for-3 at the plate with 3 runs batten in on 3 singles.  Tanner Benett was 1-for-3 with three runs scored and one RBI.  Sam Gullickson had two hits, including a double, drove in a run and scored once.  Mason Nibbe and Trysten Gapp each had a double, a run batted in and a run scored.
