LAINGSBURG — After beating Bath 5-2 in Monday’s district semifinal, Perry fell 11-1 to No-1-ranked Pewamo-Westphalia in the district championship game.

“We hung close to them for four innings,” Perry coach Greg Hallock said. “They’re No. 1 and we knew we had to play nearly flawless baseball to win. It didn’t happen.”

Four errors threw a wrench into those plans for Perry, which finished its season at 18-7.

Perry also couldn’t solve P-W (27-2) standout pitcher Ethan Smith, who gave up just three hits with nine strikeouts and two walks.

Nick Porter took the loss for Perry. He worked 51/3 innings and gave up six hits with six strikeouts and three walks.

Brenden Shooltz, Drew Crim and Mathias Spencer had hits for Perry.

P-W led 4-0 after one inning before stretching the lead to 6-0 with two runs in the fourth. They added two runs in the fifth and three more in the sixth to end it via mercy rule.

Perry topped Bath in the district semifinal as Jack Mull was the winning hurler. He gave up four hits with five strikeouts and three walks.

Porter had a triple and a single and drove in two runs. Hunter Sanderson had two hits while Bryce Daniel, Barrett Hallock and Shooltz each had one hit.
