WILTON—On May 16, the Sigourney Savages started their season off by visiting the Wilton Beavers. The Savages handled the Beavers by a final score of 11-7.

The Savages found themselves in a 3-0 deficit after four innings of play. They cut the lead down to 3-2 in the fifth inning. They added five more in the top of the sixth to secure a 7-3. The Beavers pushed back with three runs in the bottom of the inning to cut the Savages lead down to 7-6. The Beavers eventually tied the game at seven apiece in the seventh. The Savages offense added four runs in the eight to secure the 11-7 win over the Beavers. 

As a team, the Savages were able to get 10 hits and 10 walks in 33 at bats. The offense was churning, as it was led by Caden Clarahan. Clarahan finished 3-4 with three RBIs, and a triple away from hitting the cycle. He also pitched four innings in which he gave up two earned runs on two hits with seven strikeouts. 

The Savages advance to 1-0 on the season, and will return to action on May 18, when they host the Pella Christian Eagles.
