ROCKY RIVER --  Lutheran West won a tight game against Fairview on Monday in a game that took only 1 hour and 16 minutes.  Junior Jake Albrecht’s two-out, two-run single in the sixth inning broke a 1-1 tie and put Lutheran West in position to win its eighth game of the year.

Senior Rory Zakareckis (W, 3-1) was sensational on the mound, shutting down the visiting Warriors throughout the entire game, allowing only one run (earned) in his seven innings of work.  Zakareckis struck out ten and walked only one in the game. After the first inning, where Fairview scored their only run, the Warriors managed exactly one runner to second base—and none to third base—for the rest of the game. 

Zakareckis was nearly matched by Fairview’s Martin Lowry.  West scored its first run in the second on a double by Zakareckis, a single by senior Alex Gavlak, and then an RBI single by junior John Smolik. But then Lowry found his groove and LW didn’t get a runner to second until the sixth. 

A double from senior Jeremy Geye to start the sixth inning was followed by a sacrifice bunt by senior Michael Berghaus and back to back walks to senior Owen Albers and Zakareckis to load the bases with only one out.  After Gavlak struck out looking, Albrecht broke through with flair to right center to plate two runs at put LW in the lead 3-1.

Zakareckis shut down the Warriors in the seventh to finish the game, allowing only a single to the second hitter in the inning.
