The Wildcats scored a run in the first and two in the second. Cass answered with a run in the second, to tie the Wildcats at 1-all, then scored two runs in the fifth to knot the game at 3-all.
Corey Gochee, Wildcat coach, said the Wildcats capitalized on Cass mistakes. He noted Woodland got two hits in the seventh and drew four bases on balls. “They made a couple of errors that helped give us our two runs in the third inning.”
Leading Wildcat hitters included Mason Robinson, 1-of-3 with a run scored and a double; Hunter Siniard, 1-of-2 with a double and a walk; Camden McGill, 1-of-2 with two bases on balls and two runs scored.
Blake Hall pitched five innings and struck out nine for Woodland.
“He’s what I like to call a very effective left-hander,” Gochee said.
John Hood finished the game for Woodland, striking out four in the sixth and seventh innings and picking up the win.
Woodland and Cass both play Saturday during Woodland’s Military Appreciation Day tournament at Wildcat Stadium. The day long event starts at 11 a.m.
