Southern Door and Kewaunee each got stellar pitching performances out of their teams Tuesday to advance to the Division 3 regional final today at 4:30 PM. The Storm beat Gibraltar 2-1 at Billerbeck Field on a great outing by Andrew Richard. He pitched six and one-third innings, struck out 10 and allowed just one run. He opposed Ernie Erickson. The Vikings hurler pitched a complete game gem but took the loss. Erickson allowed just one earned run, struck out 10 in seven full innings.
Nate Ewaskowitz scored Gibraltar’s lone run in the fifth inning on a Connor Brennan RBI single. Wes Gallenberger accounted for all of Kewaunee’s scoring on a two-RBI double in the first inning.
Southern Door was a 6-1 winner over third seed Manitowoc Lutheran.
