FULTON, MO -- The William Woods baseball team extended their winning streak to 11 games, defeating No. 16 Lyon College 2-1 in game one and 12-5 in game two.

Game one was a pitching duel between Scots starter Talan Roepcke and Owl starter Jeremy Ahillen, as each teams' offense started off slow out of the gate. The Scots got on the board first in the top of the third, as Roger Glaude led the inning off with a single and he was able to advance to second on a sacrifice bunt by Wesley Roberson.

Leadoff hitter Kris Kohlstedt hit a sharp line drive into left field, scoring Glaude and giving Lyon the one run lead. Besides giving up that lone run, Ahillen pitched a gem, going five one-third innings pitched, allowing just five hits.

In the bottom of the sixth, Zach Nichols led the inning off and reached base on a wild throw by the Scots infield. After a Matt Thomas groundout that allowed Nichols to move up to second, Jacob Harrison came up and hit a triple, scoring Nichols and putting the go ahead runner down at third base. Roepcke settled down and was able to retire the rest of the Owls, but the game was tied heading into the seventh.

After reliever Matt Thomas got out of the top of the seventh inning, Greg Hamrock got the offense going with a one out single to center in the home half of the inning. Stephen Kohler bunted and reached on a wild throw by the Scots infield, putting two runners on and nobody out. Nichols forced a walk, which loaded up the bases for Thomas. The junior hit a ground ball to the second baseman, who threw it home for a force out, however, the catcher dropped the ball as Hamrock slid in for the winning run.

The Owls totaled five hits in game one, with two a piece coming from Harrison and Hamrock. Eilert Meyers added the other hit for William Woods. Thomas picks up his third victory on the year, throwing one two-thirds innings of one hit ball.

Game two was a much different story, as after the Scots took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first on starter Dane Smith, the Owls offense responded. The team scored 10 runs on just four hits, capped off by a Nichols three run homer over the center field wall. Lyon committed three errors in the inning, totaling the same amount they committed in seven innings in the previous game.

Starter Brandon Haller who came into the game with an 8-0 record, wasn't able to record an out, allowing six runs (three earned) and zero hits. The Scots cut into the lead in the top of the second and the third, scoring two runs in each inning, putting the score at 10-5.

But the Owls scored one run in the fourth and one in the seventh, going on for the 12-5 victory and taking two important games from No. 16 Lyon College. After allowing runs in the first three innings of the game, starter Dane Smith settled down for a great outing, allowing five runs on 10 hits and struck out four in eight innings pitched.

The offense totaled 11 hits led by Ryan Sweet going 3-for-4 with one run scored. Kohler went 2-for-3 with two runs scored in the second spot in the order. Hamrock, Thomas, Harrison, Kyle Switzer and Robertt Butvin (2), each contributed an RBI in the game. This is the first time all season Lyon has lost the first two games of a double-header in conference play.

With the two victories, the Owls (23-14, 17-7 AMC) now trail Lyon College by just three games for the second spot in the American Midwest Conference. The two teams' will square off again tomorrow on Senior Day, as the game one first pitch will be thrown out at 12:00 p.m.
