The Edmonds-Woodway Warriors ended their 2012 baseball season at the hands of the Kentwood Conquerors Saturday in an 8-3 first-round state playoff game loss in Kent.

Kentwood took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the 1st, but E-W came back in the top of the second when Jorgen Arneson hit a three-run homer to make it 3-1. The Conks came back to tie it in the bottom of the second and the score remained knotted at 3-3 until the fifth inning, when Kentwood exploded for five hits and four runs.

The Conquerors added another run in the sixth and the Warriors were unable to answer. Edmonds-Woodway finished 17-7 on the season, earning the Wesco South division championship in the process.

Arneson earned the Edmonds Sports Academy Player of the Game award via Warrior Radio for his performance, and tournament officials presented catcher Tate Budnick with a sportsmanship award following Saturday’s game. You can see additional photos on the My Edmonds News Facebook page.
