St. Henry wraps up the Midwest Athletic Conference season at 4-5 and goes to 15-11 overall. New Bremen drops to 15-9 on the season and 4-3 in the MAC.
The St. Henry seventh-inning rally started after Leugers got Josh Schmackers to strike out and Andrew Huelsman to ground out to start the inning.
Evan Bertke kept the hopes up with a single and Leugers then hit Jeremy Schwieterman putting runners on first and second base.
The count went to the limit and both runners were going on the pitch when Homan belted a shot to left-centerfield. Bertke scored easily and Schwieterman made a mad-dash for home, coming in standing up to end the game. Both pitchers came up with fine efforts. Zach May picked up the win for the Redskins, striking out nine and walking two in seven innings. Leugers struck out eight and walked three over 6 2/3 innings.
Homan's double was the only extra-base hit of the game.
