The Panthers, in the BEC large-school division, hiked their league record to 6-1 (6-4 overall). PHS is tied for the division lead with New Holstein which is also 6-1.

The Tigers, a member of the BEC small-school division, slipped to 5-2 in the BEC (5-2 overall). All of the conference games are counted to determine the champions in both divisions.

PHS trailed 3-2 going into their half of the fifth. Cooper Gosse’s two-out, two-run double gave the Panthers a 4-3 lead. Gosse later scored on an error.

Gosse and Sam Miller led PHS in hits with two each. Gosse contributed an RBI single in the second.

Eric Reinemann paced HG in hits with two. Alec Danen had a team-high two RBIs.

Ben Picard was the winning pitcher. Picard allowed one run (unearned) and six walks to go with four strikeouts in 3-1/3 innings.

Keegan McMullen earned a save after pitching the final two frames – allowing zero runs and no walks while striking out two.

Isaac Dirker pitched a complete game for the Tigers and took the loss. Dirker gave up one earned run and one walk while striking out four.

“We scattered some hits up and down our lineup – allowing us some scoring opportunities – and Cooper Gosse and Sam Miller provided us with some timely RBI hits,” said Panther head coach Butch Cain.

“We are confident our defense will get better and our pitchers will be more consistent moving the ball around in the zone. To compete night in and night out we will need to execute more consistently than we have been.”

The Panthers lost a non conference game, 14-8, at Pewaukee on Saturday afternoon. The Pi- rates improved to 7-3.

Aiden Reilly spearheaded the Panthers’ nine-hit attack with three, followed by Miller’s two. Miller and Holden Reilly had a team-high two RBIs each.
