West Point opens tourney with win

HARTINGTON — Perfect pitching and solid hitting led West Point to a big 10-0 win over Wisner-Pilger-Beemer in the Class Area 2 American Legion Tournament here Friday.

West Point’s Jonathan Guenther picked up a diamond rarity — a perfect game — to earn the win. He did not allow a single hit or walk during the five-inning contest.

Eric Wietfield paced the West Point offense with a double. Kalib Mauch suffered the loss for Wisner.
West Point, the second seed in this week’s tourney, will take on the winner of the Pender-Battle Creek game in second-round action on Saturday.
