NCWHS won their fourth straight Thursday evening behind a Ben Smith walkoff single to defeat Dunlap 10-9 at Parkside field.

Smith (double, single, RBI), Jeremy Fischer (3 singles, RBI), and Mark Ogden (double, single) led the offensive attack for the Wildcats.  Tyler Joaquin (single, 2 RBIs), Jake Rutkowski (single, RBI), Tyler Ott (single, RBI), McCade Brown (single), and Jake Marti (single) also contributed key hits in the victory.

Joaquin started on the hump for the Wildcats, scattering five hits, recording three strikeouts, and allowing just two earned runs in 3 1/3 innings of work.  Smith closed down the remaining 3 2/3 innings for the Cats, also giving up five hits, ringing up four more strikeouts, and one additional earned run.

NCWHS returns to action at Parkside field next Wednesday at 4:30pm against cross-town rival Bloomington High School.
