"We played good defense today and I think offensively, we had tons of guys on base and we were able to take advantage of some walks," DeKalb coach Jake Howells said.

Bobcats score 38: Somonauk defeated Earlville-Leland, 38-1, in five innings. The Bobcats (23-3, 14-1 Little Ten Conference) scored 27 runs in the second inning.
