Clinton Prairie High School
Frontier High School
When the game took off it showed to be a pitchers dual between 2 pitchers that wouldnât not give in on the strike zone. Cole Fesler for the Falcons and Jared Stillwell battled it out on the hill until the Gophers scored first in the top of the 5th by plating 1 run. That didnât stop Frontier. In the bottom of the sixth, Zeb Davis led the drive to get the Falcons moving in the right direction when he singled to center and stole second base to move himself into scoring position for Jarret Burroughs. Burroughs walked giving Frontier the go ahead run on 1st base. Feslerâs single in the 6th scored Davis and tied up the score at one a piece. Winter Burghardt would come in to Courtesy Run for Fesler and would eventually come around to cross the plate making the score 3-1 on a Zach Loy infield single. A 1-2-3 inning for the Falcons sealed the deal for game 1 and gave Cole Fesler his first victory of the year on the mound.
Fesler was hot at the plate going 2-3 and driving in one run. He singled in the fourth and sixth innings. Fesler allowed one earned run, four hits and two walks while striking out one over seven innings of work.
Clinton Prairie scored its only run of the game on an RBI single by Stillwell in the fifth inning.
Game 1 put Frontier at 3-1 on the season and 1-0 in conference.
