CHCA --  It was a tale of two games for LW Saturday morning as they dominated Cincinnati Hill Christian Academy for the first five innings, then collapsed in the sixth and seventh eventually losing a 6-0 lead 7-6.

The first half of the game was owned by the Longhorns. Consecutive doubles by senior Cal Thomay and senior Zach Hausmann and an infield single by senior Mitch Zaharewicz led to three runs for LW in the first. Two unearned runs and an RBI single from junior Brandon McCartney in the third gave the Longhorns a quick lead.

Thomay was dealing as well on the hill. The only blemish on his sheet in the first five innings came off the bat of CHCA pitcher Jake Shomaker who hammered a solo homerun to left with one out in the fourth. Other than that, CHCA did little to put stress on Thomay through five.

That changed in the sixth when Thomay began to tire. A leadoff single, a stolen base, a throwing error and a sacrifice fly got one run in. A walk, an infield hit, and a single to right loaded the bases. Another single knocked in the third run and Thomay from the game. Senior Justin Chislow came in to relieve Thomay and was able to get out of the bases loaded one out jam with only one more run.

The seventh, though, was a disaster. Chislow hit the leadoff hitter on the first pitch, coaxed a flyball from the second, and then watched the roof cave in with two straight RBI triples—the first from Shomaker—which tied the game at six. After two intentional walks to load the bases and set up a force play at the plate, CHCA designated hitter Ted Andrews ended the game with a single over the head of LW senior left fielder Ryan Jones to end the game.
