Area baseball: No. 1 Wabasha-Kellogg 17, No. 4 Goodhue 2 (5 innings)

Goodhue got off to a strong start against fourth-ranked Wabasha-Kellogg, scoring two runs in the top of the first. Then the floodgates opened for Wabasha-Kellogg in the Section 1A East playoff game. The Falcons scored six runs in the bottom half of the inning and never let up on Thursday in Wabasha.

"They took advantage of our mistakes," Goodhue coach Eric Schofield said. "They were able to string together some hits that put some runs across."

Sophomore Andy Johnson started on the mound for the Wildcats. He went 1 2/3 innings, giving up nine earned runs while surrendering seven hits.

Hunter and Austin Baab gave Goodhue enormous amounts of trouble. The two combined to go 6-for-6 at the plate with eight RBI. Hunter hit a grand slam and also doubled. Austin was 2-for-2 with three RBI.

Goodhue finished the season 6-16 overall.

"It was a great season," Schofield said. "They were there to compete every day and we have a lot to build from for next year."
