After cruising past their round one opponent in postseason play, the West Central Valley Wildcat baseball team could not pull off the upset bid on Saturday, falling to Tri-Center in Neola by the mark of 9-1.
There wasn’t a whole lot of offense to speak of for the Wildcats who mustered just one run off of just one hit. West Central Valley found themselves with quite the mountain to climb early after Tri-Center struck for 5 runs in the very first inning. Some very tough sledding for the Wildcats who wouldn’t hit the scoreboard until the bottom of the 7th but by then the Trojans added on a two run third inning, a one run fifth inning, and a one run sixth inning. After acquiring that lone run, the Wildcats could do no more damage, falling 9-1.
Dan Kenealy would pick up the win for the Trojans tossing four strong innings against the Wildcats while issuing two walks and delivering two strikeouts in the process.
The Wildcats now unfortunately end their 2017 season with an overall mark of 15-10.
