GLENPOOL – The Shawnee Wolves wrapped up play Saturday in the Skiatook/Glenpool Tournament with a 12-5 triumph over Cache.

Shawnee overcame three errors and compiled seven hits, many of which were timely in earning its third straight win to improve to 6-3 on the season. The Wolves finished 3-1 in the tournament after falling to Cascia Hall on Thursday.

Bauer Brittain drove home five runs for Shawnee as he was 2-for-4. He knocked in the first run off a sacrifice fly in the first inning, hit a two-run double in the second and contributed a two-RBI single in the third.

Krew Taylor, in going 1-for-3, laced a two-run double in the second inning.

Daniel Campbell got the pitching win while throwing the first four innings. He surrendered the two earned runs off four hits with four walks and three strikeouts. Kasen Rogers nailed down the save in working the final three innings and giving up no hits and one walk while fanning four.

Brittain's sacrifice fly made it 1-1 in the bottom of the first.

In the second, Shawnee scored four runs off back-to-back two-run doubles by Taylor and Brittain to make it 5-1.

The Wolves then put together a five-run third. Roger picked up one RBI when he drew a bases-loaded walk for the initial score of the frame. Brittain later hit a two-run single. Rogers and Brittain later scored off an error as the Shawnee advantage swelled to 10-1.

Shawnee upped its lead to 11-2 in the fourth on Easton Odell's sacrifice fly.

After a three-run uprising by Cache in the fifth to cut it to 11-5, the Wolves' Brylen Janda hit a triple and later scored off a passed ball for the final tally of the contest.

Trace McDaniels was 1-for-1 with three runs scored and two walks. Odell finished 1-for-2 with one RBI, two runs scored and a walk and Cade Chamblin was 1-for-1 in a pinch-hit role.
