The Wildcats (7-13-1, 5-6 NBC) posted its seventh win of the season, but it took eight innings.  Woodmore scored single runs in the fourth and fifth innings to tie the game at 2-all.  In the bottom of the eighth, junior Donovan Reyes led off with a triple to right field and junior Ian Cook followed with a single to center field to drive home Reyes with the game-winner.  Elmwood scored its two runs in the fourth inning on a walk, sacrifice, single, and consecutive sacrifices which each scored a run.  Woodmore got one run back in the fourth when senior Mason Beachler drew a lead-off walk.  He then stole second, advanced to third on a passed ball, and scored on a wild pitch.  Woodmore tied the score in the fifth when senior DJ Wellons reached on a hit batter with one out.  He was sacrificed to second by senior JT Atkin, moved to third on an error, and scored on a passed ball.  Elmwood was retired in order in the sixth and seventh innings.  Woodmore had one batter reach in the sixth and seventh, but could not push across a run.  Elmwood had a lead-off single in the eighth inning wiped out in a caught stealing by Woodmore catcher, Reyes.  Senior Brandon Cowell started and went 4.0 innings allowing four hits and two earned runs while striking out four.  Senior Austin Berkel tossed 2.2 innings striking out three while not allowing a hit.  And, Wellons pitched the final 1.1 innings to get the win.  He allowed just one hit.  Wellons, Atkin,  and junior Hunter Stevenson had the other Woodmore hits.
