Sports Prep Roundup graphic

Here is a look at the local prep scores from Wednesday, May 24.


Class 3A, Sectional 21 semifinals at NorthWood: Fairfield 9, Lakeland 0; East Noble 13, NorthWood 2

In the first semifinal game Wednesday, Fairfield was able to shutout its fellow NECC foes in the Lakers. Faith Berkey pitched a complete game for the Falcons, allowing just four hits along the way. Meanwhile, Jayslynn Hall kept up her strong sectional week by blasting two, two-run homers for a total of four RBIs.

In the second semifinal contest, NorthWood had a hard time keeping up with a talented East Noble team. Paige Jacobs started the scoring in the game with a solo homer, and NorthWood actually went ahead 2-0 in the top of the second on another home run, this one from Kailey Martin. The Knights would then score 13 unanswered, though, including eight in the bottom of the fourth inning and four in the fifth to win by the run-rule. NorthWood's season comes to a close with a record of 8-17.

This sets up a sectional championship game between Fairfield (17-14) and East Noble (18-9) Friday at 5:30 p.m. back at NorthWood High School.

The Chargers' season came to a close with a shutout loss to the Lakers, bringing West Noble's record to a final mark of 5-17. Then, in the second game of the night, Wawasee gave up eight runs across the final three innings to lose to the Knights, bringing the Warriors' season to an end with a record of 3-22. Wawasee built a 3-0 lead over the first three innings and 4-2 margin through five, but couldn't hold on for the win.
