Recap

The Hornets season came to an end in the Semi-Final round of the Class 5, District 15 tournament at the hands of the Liberty Blue Jays 10-3. The Jays dominated the early part of the game holding Northtown to only one hit in the first three innings. The loud bats of the Hornets offensive explosion were held in check as the Jays pitched Max Roos, Justin Schmidt, and Karson Milbrandt holding NKC to only three hits through the game.

On the mound, Grant Lorenzen was sharp, but the Jays bats were sharper, grabbing five runs off of six hits off of Lorenzen. They would score 10 on 15 hits. The Hornets did chip away at the lead plating one in the sixth and two in the seventh, but it was for not as the season ends with a 12-13 record – the teams best in four years. The one defensive highlight was by Tim Moment who streaked in from center to fly and catch a sinking line drive in short left-center to end the fifth inning.

Liberty will take on Kearney in the finals on Wednesday.
