— The first two times Madison La Follette and Janesville Parker played baseball this season, the Lancers came away with two narrow victories.

The third time had the same result, but in a different fashion.

The Lancers took advantage of a Parker error to score five unearned runs in a 10-run second inning en route to a

12-0 victory over the Vikings in a regional final game Thursday afternoon.

The Lancers advance to play Milton in a sectional semifinal Tuesday at Beloit.

La Follette led, 5-0, in the second when Parker committed the error that would have ended the inning.

“That was a big play,” Parker coach Brian Martin said. “If we make that play, we’re down, 5-0, and maybe we have a chance to come back.”

But after the Lancers added on another five runs, the game was basically over.

La Follette had 11 hits, including a pair of home runs by Nate Ricci.

“To me, this was high-school baseball,” Martin said. “They came out and were hot today. They hit the ball well. You have to give them the credit.

“We couldn’t answer.”

The Vikings finished 7-20.

“I’m a little disappointed,” Martin said. “I thought we’d do a little better than we did, but we had a lot of young guys playing. Hopefully down the road that will pay off.”
