A Waubonsee error contributed to a 5-run fourth inning for the Hawks.

The Hawks committed 3 errors of their own, but starter Lee Breitzman (Fremd) was up the challenge, working 7 innings and picking up the victory. He gave up both runs and walked two. Mike Sampson pitched the final 2 innings and earned a save.

The top of the Harper lineup -- Theo Yfantis and Kurt Becker -- went a combined 7-for-10, scoring 5 runs.

Waubonsee first baseman Jake Jouris was hitless in 4 at-bats.

Left-hander Chris Anderson (Waubonsie Valley) suffered the loss.

The Hawks can seal a trip to the World Series by winning game two of the best-of-three series. The first pitch is set for noon Saturday at Waubonsee.
