  • Tuesday was sweet revenge for Canton-Galva.
    The Eagles had been swept at Bennington in 2013, but returned the favor ten-fold at Baldwin Field 11-6 and 14-1.
    It was the first time the Canton-Galva senior class had ever been a part of a doubleheader sweep.
    “We once again hit the ball pretty well and had several hard smashes to the outfield that their outfielders made good catches on,” Eagle coach Kelly Nelson said. “We came into the night with a goal of cutting down our walks and errors. We did an excellent job with the walks, as we only gave up four walks on the night.”
    Tanner Klingensmith went the distance on the mound in game one for Canton-Galva (3-1). He struck out five Bulldog batters, and gave up six runs on 11 hits. He walked three.
    Klingensmith helped his own cause, going 3-for-3 at the plate with three RBIs. Connor Farnham went 3-for-4 with a triple, while Jacob Dailey had three RBIs on a hit and a sacrifice.
    Errors kept the Bulldogs in the game, as Bennington scored one run in each inning but the fifth.
    “The first game we had a few too many errors,” Nelson said. “But the second game we played error free ball.”
    Nick Bray did a masterful job on the hill for the Eagles in game two, as he held the Bulldogs to one earned run on eight hits in five innings of work to notch the win. He had four strike outs and one walk in the run-rule shortened win.
    Bray, Ethan Loyd and Reed Wiens each had two his, with Wiens picking up four RBIs and Loyd two.
    Wiens recorded a double, while Klingensmith hit a triple.
    The Eagles are off now until Tuesday, when they travel to Marion.
    Moundridge swept by     Sedgwick
    SEDGWICK — Young Wildcat arms and errors led to a Sedgwick Heart of America sweep of Moundridge Tuesday.
     The Wildcats dropped game one 8-2, and then Sedgwick  unloaded in the second half of the twinbill 12-1.
    Sophomore Nick Leddy had his first varsity start, as he went four inning and looked impressive in his time on the mound.
    “Leddy pitched well, being it was his first varsity action on the mound,” Moundridge coach Lynn Eichelberger said. “He left the game with the score 3-2 in the fifth. The next two guys out of the bullpen (senior Corey Barton and freshmen Caleb Frye) also saw their first action of the year. We held Sedgwick to seven hits, but had too many free passes.”
    Leddy gave up three runs on four hits, striking out three and walking four.

    Game two was less positive for the Wildcats (1-3), as three errors led to six Cardinal runs in the second inning. Sedgwick also added one in the third and five more runs in the fourth before the run-rule was enacted after the fifth.
    “Our defense let Kyle Stucky down on the mound,” Eichelberger said.
    Stucky went two innings, giving up six runs, only one earned, on four hits. He walked four and struck out three.
    Hunter Enyart worked an inning-and-a-third, giving up six more runs off two hits. Dylan Sugars closed out the game on the mound for Moundridge.
    Anthony Otte picked up two of Moundridge’s four hits in game two. Hunter Enyart had the lone RBI.
    The Wildcats are at Marion on Friday for a twinbill starting at 4:30 p.m.
