PHS hiked its EWC record to 2-0 (6-1 overall). The Falcons dropped to 1-2 in league play (3-3 overall).

Drew Schweiger’s two-run single keyed the Panthers’ surge in the first.

The Panthers broke the game with a four-run fifth which boosted their lead to 10-3. Senior Zac Cain’s three-run triple was the big blow. The other run scored on Ethan Keller’s bases- loaded walk. PHS collected three hits and three walks in the frame.

Cain sparked the Panthers’ attack with three hits and four RBIs. Drew Schweiger contributed two hits and a pair of RBIs.

Cain, Matt Olig and Derek Schweiger paced PHS in runs with two apiece.

The Falcons were led at the plate by John Vanderploeg who cracked two hits and had two RBIs.

Jake Steinhardt earned the win after pitching five innings in relief. Steinhardt allowed two runs (one earned) on only two hits with four walks and six strikeouts.

Vanderploeg was the losing hurler. He gave up 10 earned runs on six hits with seven walks, four strikeouts and two hit batters in four innings.

“It was big for us to get off to a fast start. We had a combination of timely hitting and taking advantage of free passes,” said Panther head coach Butch Cain. “We were selective at the plate.

“Drew [Schweiger, starting pitcher] and Jake gave up some walks but battled through it. Our defense was pretty solid. We pressed them [on the bases] hard early and it paid dividends.

“It was a team win. We played with emotion,” said the coach.
