Cannon Falls had no trouble against the Wildcats Tuesday afternoon in their doubleheader, outhitting host Goodhue by a total of 16 between the two contests and remaining errorless in the two games.
"In both games we made a lot of mistakes that left the doors wide open for them," Goodhue coach Eric Schofield said.
In the first game, Cannon Falls scored eight runs in the third frame, and in the second game they scored six runs in the fifth inning.
"Fourteen runs came in just two innings," Schofield said. "Take away those mistakes and these are two different games."
Cannon Falls' Cedric Dicke went 3-for-4 in the opener with a home run and five RBI, and Matt Henke drove in two RBI for the Bombers in the first game, which lasted five innings.
Brian Strauss once again led the way for the Wildcats, hitting 2-for-3 with a double in the first game and 2-for-3 with an RBI in the second game.
"He has been our leader throughout the season; he just continues to play every single day," Schofield said.
Tyler Boyle-Hoban got the win on the mound for Cannon Falls in game one, and Sean Serres pitched for the Bombers in the second.
Nate Zibolski went 3-for-4 with two RBI in the second contest for the Bombers.
With the losses, Goodhue fell to 2-14 overall and 0-8 in the Hiawatha Valley League. Cannon Falls improved to 9-6 overall and 6-4 in the Hiawatha Valley League.
