Cathedral broke open game one with a five-run fourth inning and went on to the 10-0 win in five innings of play. Coach Woitas couldn’t find any highlights in this game and gave credit to the Greyhounds for the great outing from their pitcher. Dallas Bauer and Carter Currens pitched for the Knights.
In game two, NUC was already ahead 6-0 going into the fifth inning—then scored six more to take all control of the game. Woitas said Goblirsch had a good outing on the mound in the four innings he pitched; Spencer Hoffman and Carter Currans split the fifth inning. The Knights got only two hits, from Nick Labat and Hoffman.
“It was a tough day at the ball park,” said Woitas. “Cathedral played well in both games and we just didn’t get the hits.”
After a rainout on Monday, the Springfield Tigers made the trip to Sleepy Eye on Tuesday, May 15—delivering two more losses for the Knights.

Woitas said Springfield took advantage of six errors by St. Mary’s to go on and get the big 12-0 win. He liked Dominic Helget’s pitching—in four innings he allowed two hits and four runs, striking out five. Nick Labat and Andrick Sanchez each went for 1 for 2; Dallas Bauer was 1 for 1 with a double.
“We did a lot of nice things in this game,” said Woitas, “but find a way to hurt ourselves when we don’t make plays for our pitcher.”
In game two, Springfield plated four runs in the third and St. Mary’s couldn’t overcome that lead. Woitas said Labat pitched well and John Luu Mathiowetz got the team’s only hit and run.
“Overall I am happy with our play in game two. We need to keep working to get better
