ti,  ra - May 16, 2012 Page 13 SP- P.TS ._ SH finishes 2nd in league baseball race The Huskies bounced back from an early deficit Friday at home in baseball against Junction City to finish second in the Sky-Em, and they will host Central in the state playoffs play-in game Friday at 4:30 p.m. Sweet Home defeated Cottage Grove 7-3 on the road May 8. The .Huskies finished the regu- lar season 12-13 overall and 10-5 in league. Elmira tied the Huskies in league play, but the Huskies won two of three games against Elmira to secure second. Sweet Home coaches have scouted Central a couple of times, but they haven't played against the Panthers, said Coach Matt Matuszak. Central is young, but the team has a lot of talent. Like the Huskies, the Panthers started the season with a weak re- cord, Matuszak said, but after set- fling into their new coach's system, they bounced back and picked up a few more wins later in the season. Central is 7-8 in the Oregon West Conference, which includes tough teams like Philomath, 15-0, and Newport, 9-6. Central finished ahead of Cascade, 7-8, by winning two of three games against the Cou- gars during regular season. Central did a good job down the stretch, Matuszak said. "It's go- ing to be a great test. It's going to be a great baseball game." It'll come down to who ex- ecutes the most and makes the least number of mistakes, he said. The Huskies haven't hosted playoff games too often in recent years, Matuszak said, so he is urg- ing the community to come out and support the team. Sweet Home 11, Junction City 6 The Huskies scored the first run in the first inning, but Junction City had a big inning against the Huskies in the top of the second, taking a 6-1 lead. "They did a great job and hit the ball really well," Matuszak- Said. Cory Hanks was pitching the ball high up in "the zone, and the Ti- gers took advantage of it. Junction City had a couple of shots blown out into no-man's land, and then the Huskies gave up a couple of errors to give up the ad- vantage in the game. "I was very, very happy the way the kids bounced back," Matuszak  said.
