Lincoln Journal-Star District Championship Game Coverage:
Walk-off homer lifts Wahoo/RC/LL into state tourney
Just two days after getting the program's first district baseball victory, Wahoo/Raymond Central/Lincoln Lutheran quickly took the next step with a dramatic 8-6 win against Elkhorn in the B-6 district final Monday at Wahoo.
Tyson Carlson hit a two-run, walk-off home run in the bottom of the seventh inning to lift Wahoo/RC/LL into the state tournament, which begins Saturday in Lincoln.
"It's our first state tournament appearance," Wahoo/RC/LL coach Dustin Nilius said. "It has been a surreal year. The guys have really come together."
Wahoo/RC/LL had to rally after falling behind 5-0 in the fifth inning. It scored a pair of runs to cut the Antlers' lead to 5-2.
In the sixth, Carlson and Marshall Oetting reached on walks before Quinn McGill blasted a three-run homer to give Wahoo/RC/LL the lead.
Elkhorn tied the game 6-6 in the top of the seventh on an RBI triple.
But Wahoo/RC/LL answered in the bottom half of the inning. Brook Stuart was hit by a pitch. Then on the third pitch of his at-bat, Carlson lifted the ball over the fence in left-center, setting off a celebration.
Oetting threw a complete game.
"He's a bulldog," Nilius said. "He's going to put his nose in there and he's not coming out."

Warrior Baseball to Host May 5, 7 District Tournament (Bracket Posted)
The Warriors can add yet another first to this year’s growing list of accomplishments: hosting a district tournament!
After winning the first ever Capital Conference Tournament last weekend, the Warriors came out strong this week with wins over Elkhorn South and Bennington, improving their record to 15-5.
Junior pitcher Marshall Oetting (Lincoln Lutheran) threw the Warriors’ first no hitter of the year in a 5-0 victory over Elkhorn South. The Warriors had a rematch with Capital Conference rival Bennington on Tuesday. After falling behind early in the game, the Warriors rallied behind a strong pitching performance from Brady Darnell and pulled away with a 10-5 win.
The top six teams in power points have the privilege of hosting districts. The six district winners, along with two wild cards, make up the state tournament.
Wahoo is very excited to host the 2012 B-6 District Baseball Tournament on May 5 & 7. The Warriors will take on Wayne in Game 1 (Saturday, May 5 at 1:00 p.m.). All games will be played at Sam Crawford Field.
