SPRING HILL - Steve Lofaro singled in two runs in a six-run second inning as Lecanto downed Nature Coast Tech 7-2 Thursday afternoon.
Lecanto improved to 3-5 while Nature Coast fell to 3-7. Panther pitchers Matt Scalzi and J.A. Colasanti combined for a two-hitter with Scalzi taking the victory. Bryan Daniels took the loss.
Kevin Wiemann led off the second for Lecanto with a single and Kevin Fry walked. Justin Marckese then singled to score Wiemann. Lofaro singled to score Fry and Marckese. Eric Mylin also singled. Mike Bevis singled to drive in a run and Chris Hudak then tripled. Colasanti later singled to score Hudak.
"I hit a fastball," Lofaro said. "We all started hitting good after that. We creamed the heck out of the ball. ... It was nice."
Nature Coast scored both runs in the first inning. Kenny Treverton led off with a double. Alex Argulo then walked, and Treverton scored when Mike Edwards reached on an error. Argulo scored on Daniels' grounder.
Lecanto finished with 10 hits. Bevis was 2-for-4 with a run and an RBI, and Wiemann was 2-for-3 with two runs.
Lecanto coach Bruce Sheffield said he reprimanded players for being flat in the first inning and they exploded in the second.
"We had one good inning," Sheffield said. "I'm glad the kids got the win but I'm not real happy with the way we played the game. We weren't as aggressive as we should be. We didn't execute some things "... For once we finally got some hits with people on base. That's one thing I have been trying to harp on. We are walking into the lion's den next week. We have Springstead Monday, Crystal River on Tuesday and Citrus on Friday. It's good to get the win but we have to pick it up intensity-wise. It's hard to get off the couch and play ball (during Spring Break)."
"We had a lot of guys on base. We never got the clutch hit," Nature Coast coach Dan Garofano said. "We are getting better. We have two freshmen and five sophomores starting (Thursday). Our pitcher struggled in the second inning. (Kyle) Kuzinar came on in relief and did a pretty good job."
Nature Coast hosts Lake Lehman High from Pennsylvania at 2:30 p.m. Monday.
