Lady Lakers Defeat Falcons in Extras
April 29, 2014By Dalton Schmidt of Lakeland High School
Lakeland and Fairfield went to extra innings in their opening round NECC tourney contest- a back and forth slugfest. The Lakers collected 15 and the Falcons 16, but it was Lakeland’s Kristen Wiese whose walk off homer in the bottom of the 8th would have the final say. Wiese went 4 -5 hitting another homer in the 3rd which was a two run shot. Teamate Laken Detwiler chipped in with a grand slam in the 4th that gave the Lakers an 11-7 advantage. Both Detwiler and Wiese had five RBI’s on the day. The Lakers will travel to Angola today for a re-match againt the Hornets.
