WEST HARTFORD -- The No. 2 South Windsor Bobcats defeated the Northwest Catholic Lions, 9-2.
The Bobcats jumped out to an early 4-0 lead in the top of the first due to several Lions' errors and strong offense. Pitcher Evan Hapkiewicz flirted with a no-hitter going into the seventh inning before Lions finally got on the board.
Ben Custer was 4-for-4 for South Windsor and Hapkiewicz and Zach Donahue each had 2 hits and 3 RBI.
Team records: SW - 13-1; NWC - 11-4.
