Falcons split with Spartans
May 2, 2009
Concordia 15 Aurora 12
Aurora 18 Concordia 4
Game one was a slugfest from the outset as the two offensively potent teams combined for 33 hits and 7 home runs. Kevin Courvoisier had a 4 hit game including a homer for CUW but the game was not decided until Derrick Pankow came on to get the final three outs and preserve Dan Cattau's second win of the season.
Cattau pitched 6 strong innings, allowing only 3 earned runs but CUW relievers barely held on until Pankow's heroics saved the day.
Aurora University... 041 100 420 - 12 15 5
Concordia Wisconsin. 002 426 01X - 15 18 2
The second game was ugly from the outset as Aurora crushed seven home runs against a variety of CUW hurlers. Senior Courvoisier completed a 6 for 8 day at the plate with two more hits for the Falcons.The game two win moved the Spartans back into a tie with CUW at 14-6 in the NAC. Both schools trail Concordia-Chicago (16-4) heading into the last day of the season. The Falcons need to win one of the two games against Benedictine on Sunday to guarantee a spot in the 4 team NAC championship series.
