(Steeleville, Ill.) - Steeleville's Jordan Wilson threw a five-inning perfect game to help the Warriors knock Elverado out of the postseason on Wednesday by the score of 14-0.
Only Falcons Tanner Shread and Blaine Morse did not strike out against Wilson, who fanned a total of 9 batters on the day.
“Steeleville is a good team that we saw today," said EHS baseball head coach Jacob Emling. "We knew it would be a tough game coming into it. They hit the ball well today, and their pitcher threw well, we tip our hats to them. It was an up and down season for us. We showed improvement at times and had some spurts where we played well. That is what we want to build off of for next year, we want to keep going forward. I want to thank my seniors for the time they have put in over the years, and I wish them the best of luck in the future.”
The Warriors advance into Saturday's championship game against either Century or Shawnee (Wolf Lake) at 11:00 a.m. in Steeleville.
