Silver Lake Takes NEKL Title with Comeback Win over Doniphan County

The Northeast Kansas League regular season championship game was held Wednesday night in Wathena, and it was Silver Lake Post 160 out of the West Division taking the league crown with a comeback 10-8 win over Doniphan County who was the champion of the East.

Doniphan County jumped out to a 7-0 lead after just two innings, taking advantage of two walks, two hit batsmen and five singles. Caleb Liechti collected two singles and four RBIs in the first two innings alone, while Zeb Speer and Brock Blair each scored two runs.

After that Doniphan County was held scoreless in third, fourth, fifth and sixth innings which allowed Silver Lake to get back into the game.

Post 160 got their scoring started with four runs in the fifth on three hits, an error and a groundout, as Cale Adams had the big hit scoring two runs with a double pulling Silver Lake within 7-4.

Silver Lake then went down in order in the sixth, but in the seventh plated six runs on three hits, two errors and a hit batsmen. Will Boyd, Tyler Blaylock and Cody Hay each collected RBIs in the inning, as Silver Lake took a 10-7 lead into the bottom of the seventh.

In the seventh Doniphan County didn’t go down quietly scoring a run and having the bases loaded with one-out and the tying run at second along with the go-head run at first, but Cale Adams struck out two straight hitters to end the game.

Adams was named the McDonalds “Player of the Game” on 103.9 KNZA, as he went 1-for-3 at the plate with two runs scored and an RBI while also throwing the final three innings for Silver Lake, allowing just one run on two hits while striking out five.

Trent Byers also went 2-for-3 for Silver Lake with two runs scored and an RBI, while Doniphan County saw Brock Blair go 1-for-1 with three runs scored.

The win improved Silver Lake to 29-4 on the year heading into the zone tournament that kicks off Sunday, while the loss dropped Doniphan County to 19-10 on the season.

Marysville Takes Two From Corning

The Northeast Kansas League regular season officially wrapped up Wednesday night as Corning played host to Marysville, and it was Post 163 who swept the night taking game one in dominating fashion 22-4 and the second 6-3.

Marysville wasted no time jumping out in front in game one with a seven-run first inning as Hunter Warnick collected two RBIs on a single.

Corning responded though with two runs in the bottom of the first, but Marysville never stopped scoring plating three runs in the second and third innings before capping off the win with nine runs in the fourth.

Jacob Latta had a big day at the plate in game one as he collected five RBIs on two hits, while Owen Nietfeld picked up the win on the mound tossing four innings allowing four runs on six hits while striking out three.

Game two was a similar story with Marysville jumping out in front early. Post 163 plated a run in the first inning and three in the second to jump out to a 4-0 lead after two. Hunter Warnick blasted a three-run home run in the second, while Storm Slupianek hit a home run of his own in the third.

Corning did score two runs in the third to pull within 6-2, but Derek Roever shut down Corning from there as he pitched all five innings for Marysville allowing just three hits.

The pair of wins pushed Marysville to 21-6 on the year, while Corning dropped to 3-13.
