What a night!! With the 6-4 win over Peru, Southwood got a share of the conference crown with Rochester. Both teams finished 7-2 against conference foes. The Knights started the night needing their third win in as many days, and they were up against a tough Peru ball club. The Knights would take the lead for good in the 6th inning as Mason Yentes scored the go ahead run. All of the Knights except for Gabe Lloyd were able to record hits, highlighted by a fourth inning solo home run by Alex Farr. Lloyd started on the mound for the first time this season. He went 4 innings allowing 4 runs (all earned) on 6 hits. He struck out 5 and walked one. Tristin Hayslett entered the game and shut the door. He went three innings allowing 0 runs on 0 hits striking out 4 and walking one. This was the third conference title in 5 years for the Knights. The varsity team will travel to Clinton Central to take on Delphi tomorrow, with an approximate 12:30 start time.
