North Advances, Memorial Falls

Bob Johnson's boys entered post-season play with a humble approach, one game at a time. However, that doesn't mean the Eau Claire North club doesn't have visions of a state title dancing through their heads.

Friday afternoon North hosted River Falls in a WIAA Division 1 Regional Final. The Huskies gave the ball to ace Phil Isakkson and once again he delivered pitching a shutout. Offensively, Davey Fischer recorded a two-run triple in the second inning as North downed River Falls 5-0 to advance to a sectional semi-final.

Eau Claire Memorial didn't fare as well Friday afternoon. The Abes got behind the eight ball in the second inning when Hudson's Brian Sparstad singled in a run. Trailing by five in the sixth, Memorial's Will Fadness sparked the Abes offense with a two-run single but it wasn't enough as Hudson nipped Memorial 5-4. The Raiders will square off with Eau Claire North Tuesday morning at ten o'clock at Eau Claire's Carson Park.
