The Crimson Bears (10-3, 2-2 Southeast) split with Sitka High School and conference-leading Ketchikan High School during the four-game series.

On Saturday, JDHS defeated the two-time defending state champion Wolves 11-1 as Joe Kohan and Clae Baker combined to strike out 15 batters.

Baker allowed no hits in the first two innings before giving way to Kohan, who allowed one run off two hits with 12 strikeouts and one walk.

Kohan also went 3-for-5 with three RBIs and two runs scored. Shawn Ibesate scored three runs, Ryan Beason went 2-for-5 with three RBIs, and Aaron Cohen went 5-for-5 with three RBIs.

Corey Mahar had two hits, two RBIs and two runs scored in the win.

JDHS scored six runs in the first inning to break open the game.

Earlier Saturday, Sitka scored in the eighth inning to beat JDHS 5-4. The game was a continuation of Friday's contest, which was called after seven innings due to darkness.

Bryn Calhoun singled home Eric Buggins to win the game.

Andrew Hall struck out 10 batters but walked 14 in 623 innings. He allowed four runs on just two hits.

Mahar had three hits, Beason drove in two runs off two hits, and Shane Rud had a pinch-hit single in defeat.

On Friday, Ketchikan sealed a split with JDHS as the Kings won 3-2.

Kohan and Beason had two hits each, but Trevor Norton picked up the win for Kayhi.

JDHS hosts Ketchikan and Sitka this weekend at Adair-Kennedy Memorial Park for a pair of conference doubleheaders.
