Baseball: Hard-luck Knights fall in 2AA semis
One hit for both Kenyon-Wanamingo and St. Peter defined Thursday's Section 2AA semifinal.
The Saints' starting pitcher, Andy Regner, was in shutdown mode. He struck out nine and held the Knights to one hit, a seventh-inning single from Gavin Roosen.
Still tied 0-0 after the top of the seventh, second-seeded St. Peter won on a walk-off infield single from Andy Regner that brought Owen Little home for a 1-0 victory over sixth-seeded K-W.
The Knights lost despite a strong performance from Mathew Houglum, who struck out six while giving up five hits and a pair of walks.
K-W will try to fight off elimination at 1:30 p.m. Saturday when the Knights face 12th-seeded Lake Crystal-Wellcome Memorial in St. Peter. The winner will face the victor of Le Sueur-Henderson/Medford on Tuesday, June 6 back in St. Peter.
