Wilson Central 12, Beech 3
SHACKLE ISLAND -- Kyle Hubbuch was a busy man Wednesday, May 7 as Wilson Central thumped Beech 12-3 in the 9-AAA finals.
A Univ. of North Alabama signee, Hubbuch (5-4) pitched a complete game five-hitter with seven strikeouts. He also drilled a grandslam homer in the top of the fourth to give his squad a comfortable 6-0 lead over the Bucs.
For good measure, Tony Pfefferle bopped a three-run homer in the top of the seventh as the Wildcats improved to 23-12 on the season -- stretching their winning streak to nine consecutive games.
The district title was the first for Coach Anthony Ford’s team since the 2005 season and marked the third in the program’s history.
The Wildcats will host Rossview (22-12-1) in Monday’s 7 p.m. Region 5-AAA opener.
