Hutch knocks off Blue Jays at state

 Plato’s hopes of winning a second consecutive state championship were thwarted by an upstart neighbor as Hutchinson defeated the Blue Jays 4-2 in the Class C quarterfinals on Sunday, Sept. 4, at Veteran’s Memorial Field in Hutchinson.
The juggernaut that had been the Plato offense – the Blue Jays had outscored their first three state opponents by a combined score of 28-4 – was largely stopped short of home plate by the Huskies.
While the defending Class C champions did crank out 14 hits against Hutchinson, the Huskies allowed Plato to convert just two of those hits into runs.
Chris Odegaard – who hit .411 for the tournament – got Plato on the board with a solo home run in the bottom of the second inning, giving the Blue Jays a 1-0 lead.
That advantage was expanded to 2-0 in the bottom of the third as Odegaard drove home Kyle Panning on a sacrifice fly.
