"The energy level just isn't where Paxton and Laurel Hill has been in the past," Bobcat coach Jeff Bradley said. "I think that's because both teams are so young. Both teams are trying to find our place.

"We've been able to all year. We've been able to fight and claw and get some seeing-eye singles. It's better to have a win like this than it is to have a pretty loss."

Paxton (11-0, 6-0) struck early scoring a pair of runs in the first inning. Stewart led off the game with a base hit. He moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Forrest Whibbing.

Goeghagan was hit by a pitch. Stewart and Geoghagan scored as Kaleb Newborn and Bradley were safe on errors.

Paxton pushed the lead to 5-0 with three more unearned runs in the fourth. Geoghagan had the big hit of the inning, a two run double to score Stewart and Whibbing. Austin Carnley, who led off the inning with a base hit, scored as Whibbing was safe on a Hobo error with two outs.

Paxton added another run in the fifth, two in the sixth and one in the seventh.

Stewart led the Bobcat attack with three hits and two runs scored. Geoghagan had a pair of hits and two runs scored. And Carnely had two hits.
