Senior captain, Connor Shipman provided the needed spark offensively in the bottom of the first with a double and two RBI’s to put the Lancers up 3-0.

BC put all three phases of the game together with outstanding defensive play by junior Josh Peltier with a diving catch in right, a double play by Keane, Sommerfeld and Ranchau, as well as a double play by junior Riley Richarz.

Senior captain, Eric Ranchau had two hits, and sophomore Ben Gerhard also had a multiple hit game for the Lancers. With the 11-0 win over Tosa East, BC improves to 4-1 in the GMC and 6-2 overall.

In the top of the first Riley Richarz walked and scored on Elijah Goodman’s sac fly to get the Lancers on the board, Jonathan Keane reached on a fielder’s choice and scored on a wild pitch in the second to give BC a 2-0 lead after two innings. Oak Creek battled back to tie the game at 2-2 going into the seventh when with two outs, Luke Sommerfeld threw a bullet to catcher Eric Ranchau who applied the tag at home to get the out and send the game into extra innings. In the eighth, Goodman doubled with one out and after an error; Ausloos drove in what proved to be the winning run with a sacrifice fly to give the Lancers the lead for good 3-2. Andrew Schneider came off the bench and delivered a clutch two out RBI single to give BC a much needed insurance run. Junior Aaron Hammond was the lone Lancer hitter with a multiple hit game.
