PORTLAND - The Wildcat streak is over - for both Calallen and Gregory-Portland. GP's 3-2 victory over Calallen on the diamond Tuesday night was the first since 2004. It also snapped Calallen's 18-game winning streak.
"Calallen is one of the best teams in the state (#2 in class 4A to be exact)," GP senior Travis Geiser said. "To come out and beat them is truly special."
It was Geiser that led the GP charge. He got the party started with a first inning homerun, and then pitched a complete game with seven strike outs.
"I try to be a big time player. Big-time players make big-time plays in big-time games." Geiser said.
Another big-time player for GP on Tuesday night - Blaine Hamon. Game tied at 2, bottom of the 6th, two runners on - "I guess as a sophomore, it's a great opportunity to be put in that situation and I've been practicing a lot." Hamon said. - Clutch hit. GP scores, wins in thrilling fashion.
A historical win for GP - but the Cats know it only counts as one tally in the win column.
"It feels good to finally get passed that barrier we had against them," senior leader Mickie Erwin said. "But honestly, winning one game is not going to help us win the district so we have to focus on the other (games)."
For GP, that starts with Tuloso-Midway on Friday.
