CL 11, Charles City 1
The Lions opened the season with a bang, shocking Charles City 11-1 Monday, May 20, at Lions Field.
“I thought this was a very promising start to our season and a little surprising to see such an offensive explosion in our first game against a perennially good team in Charles City,” said Clear Lake Head Coach Seth Thompson. “It was nice to see a number of kids in our program get a chance for the first time to see varsity starts, and I was happy with the way they responded individually and as a team.”
The Lions jumped out to a 6-0 lead in the first inning, added two more in the second and one more in each of the next three innings to end the game after five.
