Iola– The Pacelli Cardinals got a great pitching performance from Nate Helms to secure a 5-3 victory over Iola-Scandinavia on Tuesday in regional semifinal action.
Helms threw six plus innings, striking out four and walking none.
Zach Zimmerman was 2-4 with a double, while Garrett Parks and Jonah Dombrowski each had two hits for the Cardinals.
“Nate threw a great game and was on today,” said Pacelli coach Wayne Sankey. “After a rough first inning the guys responded well to some adversity. It was nice to see our guys hit the way they did against some good pitching.”
Pacelli now 16-7 overall. Their next game is at Amherst in the regional championship game Wednesday.
