WAHOO — Bend but don’t break was the adage the Wahoo State Bank Seniors lived by in a 6-5 win against Zig Drywall at home on June 26. Despite giving up a four-run lead in the top of the seventh, the Reds held on to win in walk-off fashion.

To start the game, Fort Calhoun got two runners on with a single in the infield and then a walk. A wild pitch by Jonas Schnakenberg two batters later brought in a run for Zig Drywall and put them ahead by a score of 1-0.

In the bottom of the third, Fort Calhoun hit a batter and then walked two others to load the bases for Wahoo. A single to the shortstop in the next at-bat by Cody Hesser drove in both Sam Marxsen and Eli Johnston and put the Reds up by one.

Wahoo increased their lead to 3-1 in the fifth when an error by Zig Drywall at third base scored a run. Next up was Alex Barry who doubled to left field driving in Kaden Christen and increasing the Reds’ edge out to 4-1.

Out of the leadoff spot in the bottom of the sixth, Bo Osmera worked a walk for Wahoo. He would get to third on a groundout by Carson Sabatka and then crossed home on a wild pitch to make it 5-1 in favor of the Reds.

Eli Johnston struggled with his control in the top of the seventh and hit the first two batters of the inning. This gave Fort Calhoun the spark they needed as they ripped off two straight singles to pull within two at 5-3.

A pair of groundouts to second base and the shortstop allowed two more runs to score for Zig Drywall and tied the game up at five apiece.

Fort Calhoun did not have an ideal start to the bottom of the seventh. What should have been a routine groundout to second turned into a single for Isaiah Nagel.

Courtesy runner Conor Booth used his speed to get all the way to third base with just one out. He would end up scoring the winning run when Christen grounded out to first base during the next at-bat.

All driving in one run for Wahoo in the victory were Hesser, Christen, Barry, and Nagle.

An error by the catcher allowed Marxsen and Johnston to score from third and gave Wahoo their first lead at 5-4.

Wahoo put the game out of reach in the bottom of the sixth with their final two runs of the contest. They were driven on a single by Johnston and a hit by Nagle.
