Wahoo had plans of capping off an undefeated regular season with the Dodge County Baseball League championship title. And West Point, well, they had other plans.
Those plans included spoiling a perfect season for Wahoo and capturing a championship of their own as the Bombers delivered a dramatic 1-0 win over Wahoo in the DCBL title game Saturday afternoon at the Hog Yard in Scribner.
“It was just a lot of fun. It was wild the way it ended. It got intense, but that’s what you want from a championship game,” Bomber Nate Bruning said. “We are so cohesive. We all just get along, which makes it fun too.”
The formula for West Point’s success was rather simple. Stellar pitching, and just enough offense.
Elliot Engle did his part in producing the stellar pitching. Wahoo was a team that averaged over eight runs per game during the regular season. Engle delivered a shutout, and in nine innings of work, he allowed eight hits and no walks with 13 strikeouts.
