Ben Dixon had a pair of hits including a solo-homer and he picked up the win on the mound as Bishop Heelan beat Storm Lake 7-4 Monday night in Storm Lake in a class 3A district final. Storm Lake got off to a great start as they plated three first inning runs off Crusaders starting pitcher Christian Velasquez who helped the Tornadoes with three walks as he struggled with his control. Ben Raveling had an RBI single and Jailen Hansen delivered a two run single in the inning.
The Crusaders though would score a run in the first, one in the 2nd, take the lead for good with a 2-run third inning and they carried a 5-3 lead heading into the 5th inning. Manny Chavez led off the Tornado 5th with a single, Ethan James would then put down a sacrifice bunt (his 2nd of the game) to put Chavez to second. Drew Price then walked. After Raveling flied out to left field for the 2nd out, Mark Eddie walked to load the bases. Hansen then came through again with a single to center scoring Chavez but Price was thrown out at home trying to score the tying run from 2nd base. Heelan answered right back with a pair of runs that both scored on wild pitches for the final runs of the game in the bottom of the inning.
Dixon was the 2nd pitcher of the game for the Crusaders and picked up the win going 2 2/3 innings allowing one run on two hits. Collin Knapp retirerd six of seven batters over the final two innings for the save.
Ethan James started for Storm Lake and pitched 4 1/3 inings allowing seven runs on seven hits, he struck out five and walked five. Price pitched the final 1 2/3 and gave up no hits and walked two.
Storm Lake concludes the year with a record of 21-10. Bishop Heelan is now 28-10 and will play Sergeant Bluff-Luton Wednesday in a 3A sub-state final. The Warriors beat Spencer 13-3 in five innings.
