First-place Lakewood received a three-hitter from Andrew Bean and defeated the Coupeville High School baseball team 8-2 Monday, March 26, at Robert Sherman Field.

Bean wasn't overpowering, striking out only four, but used an effective breaking ball to keep the Coupeville bats quiet. Both of the Wolves' runs were unearned.

The Wolves scored in the bottom of the first to lead 1-0. Drew Chan walked, moved to second on an error and scored on Korbin Korzan's single.

The Cougars (6-0, 7-0) took the lead for good with a three-run second, thanks in part to a two-run homer by Jerrad Jones.

Down 6-1, the Wolves scored again in the sixth. Ben Etzell singled and pinch runner Josh Bayne eventually scored on a ground out by Aaron Trumbull.

Brandt Bodamer, who took the pitching loss, collected Coupeville's only other hit.

Coach Willie Smith said, "I am not displeased, we just need to get better at the bat."

He added, "I thought Aaron (Curtin) threw well for us; he kept us in the game."

Coupeville (0-3, 2-5) goes to Lakewood at 4 p.m. Wednesday, March 28.
