The Southwood baseball team opened the 2012 Wabash baseball sectional taking on Lewis Cass. In a game of two halves the Knights were defeated 12-0 to bow out of the tournament.
Starting pitcher Robbie Cole would keep Cass at bay in the first and it looked as though the Knights might draw first blood in the bottom of the first. Kyle Weaver would reach on a Cass error and was followed by a Jackson Blair single. The Kings would then turn a taylor made double play, leaving Weaver on third with two outs. A ground out would end the threat with the score at zero.
In the bottom of the second, Nathan Hollars would single, but the offense stalled to leave the game scoreless after two.
Cass would plate a run in the third with a hit batter, a stolen base and a wild pitch to lead 1-0.
In the fourth the Knights would threaten to tie or take the lead. With one out Colin Elliott drew a walk. Hollars then hit his second single and was followed with a Colin Gouveia walk to load the bases. Jacob Lloyd then hit a fly ball to left that was caught, without a tag but the throw went wild past the catcher and Elliott tried to score, being thrown out at home.
In the fifth Cass would out together some key hits to score three runs and lead 4-0. For the first inning the Knights did not put a runner on.
The sixth would be the decisive inning as the Kings got to the Knight pitching, scoring five runs before the Knights recorded the first out. The Kings would go on to score three more runs and led 12-0. In the bottom of the inning Robbie Cole singled and Tim Duell reached on an error, putting runners on second and third with no outs, but two strike outs and a pop up stalled the rally and ended the game.
