Forest Lake Falcons down Sac Waldorf

The Union Staff

Forest Lake Christian, behind pitching by Jimmy Wagner and Michael Weiss, held on to defeat visiting Sacramento Waldorf, 5-3, Friday.

The win raised FLC’s record to 17-6 overall, 9-3 in league. More importantly, it knocked Waldorf from playoff contention and kept the Falcons hopes alive. FLC, currently tied for second, will face Victory Christian in a game Wednesday with the winner qualifying for the playoffs. The site for the game has yet to be determined.

Wagner (6-0 overall), who entered Friday’s game with a stingy 0.70 earned run average, held Waldorf to two hits and one earned run, while striking out eight Waldorf batters in 6 1/3 innings pitched.

Weiss came in with the bases loaded in the ninth inning, ending the threat by striking out the final Waldorf batter.

Matt Lockhart had two doubles and scored twice Friday. Wagner had an RBI-triple in the key third inning in which the Falcons built a 4-1 lead. Nick Whittington went 1-for-3 with an RBI and Matt Boatman went 1-for-2 with an RBI in the win.
