The last two undefeated Victory League teams squared off on Saturday night in Pierz as the 10-0 Sobieski Skis took on the 9-0 Buckman Billygoats in an exhibition game at Hellie Field.  In an exhibition game, often times teams don't field their top-notch lineup for any number of reasons: player availability, get a seldom-used pitcher some work on the mound or allow some bench players to get some playing time and at-bats under their belt.  And while neither the Skis or Billygoats had their absolute, tournament-ready lineup available, it was pretty close for both teams.  

In the top of the 1st, Beau Hanowski led off the game with a sharply hit single up the middle but was stranded there by Buckman starting pitcher Matt Tautges, who got a pop out to shortstop Lane Girtz, a strikeout and a ground out to 2nd baseman Alex Funk.  Buckman got a lead-off single from Matt Tautges in the bottom of the 1st, then Skis starter Scott Litchy got some defensive help from his 2nd baseman Joey Hanowski who made a sliding catch in shallow right to rob Aaron Weber of a hit.  Noah Boser then singled to put men at 1st and 2nd with 1 out.  Matt Kummet advanced both men with a high, bouncing ball ground out to Hanowski at 2nd and then Litchy got a ground out to 1st baseman Tyler Jendro to leave two men in scoring position.  Sobieski's Dan Marod reached on a 1-out error, but was thrown out attempting to steal for the 2nd out of the inning.  Tyler Jendro then lined a single to center before Matt Tautges ended the inning with a grounder to 3rd baseman Aaron Weber.  In the home half of the 2nd, Scott Litchy needed just 8 pitches to record 3 outs on a pair of ground outs to shortstop Jake Kapphahn and a bouncer back to the mound.  The Skis would get on the scoreboard in the top of the 3rd with a 2-out rally.  The first two batters grounded out to shortstop Lane Girtz but then Scott Litchy lined an opposite-field single.  That brought up Dusty Parker and on an 0-2 count, the Skis executed a perfect hit-and-run with Parker punching a single and advancing Litchy to 3rd with 2 outs.  After a walk to Joey Hanowski filled the bases,  a wild pitch allowed Litchy to slide in safely with the games first run.  A fly out to Buckman center fielder Travis Kahl then ended the inning with Sobieski now leading 1-0.  Scott Litchy then had another quick inning, retiring the Goats in order on a grounder to Jake Kapphahn at shortstop, a fly out to Dusty Parker in deep right and a strikeout.  In the top of the 4th, Sobieski managed a 2-out walk fro Jake Kapphahn but that was it as Matt Tautges strand him at 1st with  a check-swing roller back to the hill to end the inning.  In the bottom of the 4th, Noah Boser and Matt Kummet each had hits to get things started, ten a wild pitch gave the Goats men at 2nd and 3rd with no outs.  Scott Litchy then got a strikeout and a tapper back to the mound before issuing a walk to Lane Girtz to lad the bases with 2 outs.  Litchy ended the Goats scoring chance with an inning-ending pop up near the first base line, which he hauled in himself.  In the top of the 5th, after a fly out to center fielder Travis Kahl by Beau Hanowski, Matt Tautges walked Scott Litchy and then had a potential double play ball turn into an error, allowing Litchy to advance to 3rd.  A wild pitch brought home Litchy for the 2nd time in the game as the Skis loaded the bases again with a hit batter and a walk before Mark Kahl took over the pitching duties from Matt Tautges.  Kahl did his job, get a line drive to 3rd baseman Aaron Weber and a strikeout to keep the score at 2-0 in favor of the Skis.  By this time, Mother Nature had begun to announce her presence with flashes of lightning and peals of thunder.  It was at this point that the game was called off by mutual decision with the Skis leading 2-0.
