"Errors, PT fall Klahowya"

"For the second straight game, the Klahowya Secondary School baseball team played an extra-inning game ... and lost by a 6-5 score.The Eagles lost a 5-3 lead in the seventh inning Tuesday at Olympic League Class 2A rival Port Townsend, then lost the game in the eighth. Two errors in the seventh inning and another in the extra inning were fatal.We let them tie it up, and as is sort of traditional with us, we couldn't do anything with the bats in the extra inning, said Klahowya coach Russ Shiplet. Then we made another error in the eighth and it cost us the game.Three days earlier, Klahowya came from four runs back in the seventh before dropping a nonleague decision to North Mason.Kyle Skellie had three hits, one of them a triple, for the Eagles, who out-hit their hosts 11-6. Lukas Sullivan took the loss in relief of starter Jeff Berend, who worked the first seven innings. In all, Klahowya committed six errors.We've been in close games all year, but we haven't learned how to win them yet, Shiplet said. Our guys are going to get themselves a win in a close one, and that's going to be it. They'll be fine once they've won one of those.GolfJohn Hausdorf toured the Cascade Course at Gold Mountain Golf Complex in 1-under 70 to lead Central Kitsap to a 140-68 victory over Klahowya.Hausdorf, a sophomore, was one of three Cougars to top 30 points in the one-sided win, with 37.
