The Avon Lakers edged the Lake Henry Lakers in a first round State Tournament match-up in Maple Lake on Sunday as Matt Pichelmann hurled a Complete Game and Riley Voit provided most of the punch to the Avon offense with 4 hits and drove in all 3 runs. Lake Henry starter Ethan Vogt, a draftee from Elrosa, nearly matched Pichelmann pitch for pitch, but left in favor of another draftee, Bryan Schlangen of St. Martin after 7 innings.

In the top of the 1st, Matt Meyer led off by reaching on an error, and after a fly out to left by Caleb Curry, Taylor Holthaus took the first of his 4 walks and Avon had 2 on with 1 out.  Ethan Vogt then got a strikeout of Riley Voit and a pop out to 2nd off the bat of Josh Becker to end the frame.  In the bottom of the 1st, Lake Henry's Shane Kampsen went down on strikes, followed by an infield hit from Josh Kampsen.  A passed ball moved Kampsen to 2nd with 1 out.  That brought up Matt Quade, who hit a bouncing ball towards 3rd baseman Matt Meyer.  As Meyer prepared to field the ball, he was contacted by Josh Kampsen trying to advance to 3rd.  Kampsen was ruled out on interference and Quade was awarded an infield single.  The next hitter, Jason Kamspen, the lofted a fly ball into shallow right field where Riley Voit was able to drift back and make the inning-ending putout.

In the top of the 2nd, another Lake Henry error allowed a lead-off man to reach base as Cody Stich reached on the miscue.  After a Carter Philippi line drive out to right field, Stich was thrown out attempting steal.  Vogt then walked Reed Voit, but retired Carter Holthaus on a force play ground out to 2nd.  In the bottom of the 2nd, Lake Henry got an opposite field single to left by Carter Wessel with 1 out.  Pichelmann then got Aaron Savelkoul to ground into a force out.  A strikeout then ended the inning, as the game remained scoreless through 2 innings.

In the top of the 3rd, Vogt got 2 quick outs, but then walked Taylor Holthaus and gave up a single to Riley Voit, and as the throw back to the infield missed the cut-off man and rolled into the infield, Avon took advantage and Voit took 2nd.  Vogt then fanned Josh Becker to leave 2 in scoring position.  Lake Henry threatened in the bottom of the 3rd when Shane Kampsen singled with 1 out, Matt Quade was hit by a Pichelmann pitch with 2 outs, and then both men advanced on a wild pitch.  Pichelmann got clean-up hitter Jason Kampsen to ground out to 2nd baseman Riley Voit to leave both runners on base.

In the top of the 4th, Vogt got a fly out to left, then Carter Philippi beat out an infield single.  But when the throw to 1st eluded Carter Wessel, Philippi attempted to go to 2nd, but was thrown out by the catcher Shane Kampsen, who had hustled and backed up the play behind 1st and easily pegged out Philippi.  On the out, 2nd baseman Jason Kampsen suffered an injury to hi throwing hand, but after a quick visit to the dugout and a tape job, he resumed his spot in the field.  Vogt then struck out Reed Voit to end the inning.  In the bottom of the 4th, Pichelmann worked a quick 1-2-3 inning with 2 ground outs and a strikeout to send the game to the 5th still tied 0-0.

Carter Holthaus led off the 5th with a single, and Matt Meyer laid down a sacrifice bunt to move Holthaus to 2nd with 1 out.  But Vogt once again had an  answer for the Avon challenge, getting both Caleb Curry and Taylor Holthaus to ground out to 3rd strand a man at 3rd.  In the bottom of the 5th, Pichelmann started the frame with his 5th strikeout, but then gave up a single to Adam Jaeger.   Shane Kampsen bounced into a 4-6 fielders choice and then a routine fly ball to Taylor Holthaus in center field finished off the 5th with a 0-0 score still in place.

In the top of the 6th, Riley Voit belted a lead-off double off the left-center wall .  Avon was unable to capitalize on the lead-off double as Vogt struck out Josh Becker and got a ground out to shortstop before walking Carter Philippi.  Vogt then struck out Reed Voit and once again Avon was unable to push a run across the plate against Vogt.  In the bottom of the 6th, 3rd baseman Matt Meyer made a leaping catch of a hard line drive off the bat of Matt Quade for the first out.  Jason Kampsen then flew out to Josh Becker in right field for out #2.  Nick Dingmann then singled, but the inning ended 1 pitch later when Pichelmann came inside and broke the bat of Carter Wessel, who popped out to Caleb Curry at shortstop and the 6th inning was completed, still scoreless.

Ethan Vogt began his 7th inning of work by getting Carter Holthaus to ground out to shortstop Matt Quade, but then Matt Meyer beat out an infield single to the left side.  Caleb Curry then was walked on 4 pitches, followed by a Vogt wild pitch.  Avon now had men at 2nd and 3rd with 1 out.  Riley Voit then wasted no time, jumping on the first pitch he saw and ripped a single just inside the 3rd base bag, scoring both Meyer and Curry and putting Avon up 2-0.  Vogt then got a strikeout and a pop up to 3rd to end the top of the 7th with Avon now ahead 2-0.  In the bottom of the 7th, Aaron Savelkoul greeted Matt Pichelmann with a lead-off single.  After Pichelmann struck out pinch-hitter Adam Miller, Adam Jaeger singled.Shane Kampsen then hit into a 4-6 fielders choice for the 2nd out. With runners at the corners, Avon right fielder Josh Becker came up with a defensive gem as his head-first diving catch of a Josh Kampsen line drive ended the inning and preserved the 2-0 lead for Avon through 7 full innings.

In the top of the 8th, Lake Henry brought in a draftee from St. Martin, Bryan Schlangen, to take over from Ethan Vogt.  Schlangen retired the first 2 men he faced quickly, then surrendered a single to Carter Holthaus.  One pitch later, Matt Meyer's fly out to right field ended the inning.  In the bottom of the 8th, Matt Quade led off with a single, quickly followed by another hit from Jason Kampsen and Lake Henry had men at 1st and 2nd with no outs.  Lake Henry left fielder Nick Dingmann was unable to get a sacrifice bunt down and ended up fouling a pitch towards the Lake Henry dugout, where catcher Carter Holthaus made an outstanding sliding catch for the first out.  And this is where things went a little sideways for Lake Henry.  Carter Wessel connected for a screaming line drive towards shortstop Caleb Curry.  The Avon shortstop jumped as high as he could in an attempt to snare the missile.  But the ball just eluded Curry's glove and went into center field. The only problem for Lake Henry was that the runner at 2nd appeared to believe that Curry had actually made the catch, an in an attempt to scramble back to 2nd and avoid being double off and potentially ending the inning, Matt Quade dove back towards 2nd at the very same time as Jason Kampsen, the runner at 1st, was racing towards 2nd.  With distance, Kampsen had a much clearer view that the ball indeed had not been caught.  Once Quade realized that the ball was still in play, he jumped up and attempted to get to 3rd, but the throw back in to 3rd by Taylor Holthaus easily nailed Quade, producing the 2nd out.  Aaron Savelkoul followed that up with a double to score Kampsen and send Wessel to 3rd.  Lake Henry had cut the lead to 2-1 and had men at 2nd and 3rd with 2 outs.  With the late-game lead on the line, Pichelmann got Grant Ludwig to hit back to the mound for the final out of the 8th, stranding 2 in scoring position and Avon holding a 2-1 lead headed to the 9th.

In the top of the 9th, Caleb Curry smacked a lead-off single to left.  Taylor Holthaus then was issued his 4th walk of the game, advancing Curry to 2nd.  Riley Voit then put Avon back ahead by 2 with an rbi single to plate Curry and make it 3-1.    It was Voit's 4th hit and 3rd run driven in for the game.  Bryan Schlangen then shut things down, stranding Holthaus and Voit, and moving the game to the last of the 9th with Avon leading 3-1.  Matt Pichelmann got Adam Jaeger to ground out to Riley Voit on the first pitch of the inning.  A 4-pitch walk to Shane Kampsen then brought the potential tying run to the plate.  Josh Kampsen then roped a line drive to left, but Cody Stich was there to put it away for out #2.  That left things up to Matt Quade.  Matt Pichelmann worked the count to 1-2, then got Quade to lift a fly ball to center fielder Taylor Holthaus, making the catch for the final out and sending Avon to the second round with a 3-1 victory over Lake Henry.
