Panthers blank Dieterich, 5-0, for title
Sports Editor

Pitching dominated during the early stages of Monday's IHSA Class 1A Regional championship baseball game in Oblong, but the host team was able to eventually break through.

The third-seeded Panthers plated a pair of runs in the middle innings and tacked on a few more late to pull away for a 5-0 win over second-seeded Dieterich to claim their second straight regional title.

Neither team scored through the first three innings, but Oblong dented the scoreboard in the fourth when Ryan Gill led off with a walk, stole second and scored on Hunter Goodwin's base hit to take a 1-0 lead. The Panthers pushed across another run in the fifth, as Kacey Cheek led off with a single, Gill singled with one out, then Nate Meese doubled in Cheek for a 2-0 OHS lead.

Oblong put the game out of reach in the seventh, plating three more runs. The first run came when Dawson Maus singled with one out, stole second and later came around to score on an error following a pickoff attempt, making the score 3-0. Gill and Goodwin then drew back-to-back walks and Conner Potts delivered a two-out, two-run double to push their advantage to 5-0.

That was more than enough support for the OHS pitching staff, as they limited Dieterich to four base hits. Cheek earned the win, allowing two hits, walking one and striking out nine, while Goodwin gave up two hits and struck out three in two scoreless innings of relief to pick up the save.

Meese led OHS at the plate with a double, a single and a run batted in, while Maus and Cheek posted two singles and a run scored apiece. Potts doubled and knocked in a pair of runs, Gill singled and scored twice, Goodwin added a base hit, a run batted in and a run scored and Jarrett Manhart singled.
