The Streaks saw their eight-game win streak come to an end with a 4-1 loss at Napoleon, Tuesday, April 26.

The Streaks had eight hits but could not come up with the big hit.

Dickman led the way at the plate, going 3-3.

Robinson was the losing pitcher.

AHS 6, Anthony Wayne 4

Archbold upset the Division I seventh-ranked Generals 6-4 in a back-and-forth contest, Saturday, April 30, at Anthony Wayne.

The Streaks led 1-0 and 2- 1 before the Generals scored three runs in the third for a 4-2 lead.

Archbold took the lead for good in the fifth. An error and three walks led to one run while Robinson singled in the second run of the inning.

Andi Peterson came up with a key two-run single to put Archbold ahead for good.

Robinson pitched out of a couple of jams and was aided by a huge defensive play by shortstop Emie Peterson in the seventh.

With one on and no outs, Peterson dove and caught a pop-up and doubled the runner off first base.

Robinson led the way at the plate, going 3-4 while picking up the win on the mound. She struck out five and walked none.

“This was a huge win for us against a very good team,” said Joe Frank, AHS head coach.

“We can still improve our overall play, but this should give us a shot of confidence as we have some huge NWOAL games this week.”
