Lakers Sail To Top of HS Hardball

The PL Lakers capped a dramatic 4-3 comeback win last night at the Vet in Prior Lake hosting Holy Angels in Missota Conference baseball.  A large and boisterous crowd witnessed the host Lakers post 2 in the bottom of the 7th to knot the score at 3 and the game winner in the 8th frame to cap the victory.  Dan Schroeder threw a complete game which saw a couple Laker errors but great plays when needed.  Key plays and hits were tallied by all the PL ballers with key pinch rip by Thompson.   Arends and a clutch hit by Reed also figured in the scoring.  Wasik sent a ball deep over the right field fence to start the Laker scoring before the 7th and 8th inning rallies against AHA top pitchers who are highly regarded.

The Lakers are now 17-1 and perfect in the Missota Conference and surging in State Rankings as playoff draw near after beating Red Wing Tuesday 5/12.  The Laker nine is gunning for a top 4 seed in Section to host 1st Round Action in the Double Elimination Tourney which moves to Chaskas Athletic Park for Final 4 Action.  The Lakers FINAL regular season games for 2009 are both at Veterans Field hosting Shakopee 7PM Thursday 5/14 and a makeup with Burnsville scheduled for 430PM on Friday 5/15.
