Jun. 6—MAPLE CITY — Two tightly contested district semifinals turned into a no-contest district crown for Glen Lake on its home diamond Saturday.

Glen Lake earned its ninth consecutive district title with a 15-1 win Saturday afternoon over Suttons Bay. The Norsemen won in comeback fashion against Lake Leelanau St. Mary 7-6 to reach the final against the Lakers. Glen Lake didn’t have an easy time putting away Frankfort in the other semifinal, where it won 4-3.

Jon Popp helped lead the Lakers to the crown with a stellar performance from the mound and the plate in the final against Suttons Bay. Popp won the game, tossing seven strikeouts and allowing five hits while tallying three hits, including a three-run home run, and five RBI. He also recorded the save with two strikeouts against Frankfort.

Sean Galla had three hits and three RBI and Mateo Gokey added a RBI in the final for the Lakers.

Ryan Flores pitched the first 6.2 innings of Glen Lake’s semifinal and took the win while getting two hits and a RBI of his own. Gokey added an RBI double and Luke Daniels batted in a run to lead Glen Lake in the morning.

Fletcher Anderson hit a home run for Frankfort to give the Lakers a scare.

The Norsemen pulled out the semifinal win thanks to great relief pitching from Michael Wittman and a stellar batting day from Lucas Gordon. Gordon went 4-for-4 against the Eagles and added two hits against Glen Lake. Wittman tossed four innings of two-hit, no-run ball to hold the Eagles at bay long enough for the Norse to rally.

Jake Murphy had a hit and a RBI and teammates Hugh Periard, Ben Murphy and Ethan Coleman each hit a single.

August Schaub pitched most of the game but was pulled late after the Norse started to bat around. He also went 2-for-4 with two RBI and two runs for LLSM. Nick Dashner and Jake Schaub each had a RBI and Alex Flores had two hits.

Glen Lake (24-7) will host its regional semifinal opponent Ellsworth Wednesday at 4:30 p.m.
