Wildcats drop a close one

The Oak Harbor High School baseball team traveled to Lake Stevens Tuesday afternoon to play the Vikings in a WesCo North game and came home on the short end of a 3-1 score.

Wildcats’ coach Jim Waller said the contest was well played by both teams, and praised the play of pitcher Bennett Richter.

“Richter threw a good game, we just couldn’t get the big hit when we needed it,” Waller said.

The Vikings took a 2-0 lead with runs in the first and third innings, before Chris Reilly scored Oak Harbor’s only run in the top of the fourth inning on an infield out by Danny Lura.

Lake Stevens scores the final run of the game in the bottom of the fourth.

Pat Higbee was 2-for-3 with a double for Oak Harbor (4-8 league, 6-10 overall).
