SULPHUR – It was a great ride for the Lakeshore Titans, reaching a state title game for the first time in school history.

The journey ended just short of the desired ending for the No. 8 seed Saturday at McMurry Park.

No. 7 Iowa blanked Lakeshore, 4-0, in the Division II Non-Select state championship game.

Tyler Dartez was the story, pitching a complete game four-hitter for the Yellow Jackets to take home the Most Outstanding Player honor. He needed just 92 pitches, pitching very effectively to contact while not recording a strikeout. Dartez walked two.

Iowa (20-12) plated all the runs needed early with a pair scored in the first inning. The Jackets added two in the third for good measure.

Cole Corbello delivered a two-run double to open the scoring. Dartez helped himself with two hits and an RBI while Reggie Ball and Diego Dennison each added a pair of hits for the Yellow Jackets.

Titans starter Owen Guth could not get out of the second inning and took the loss for Lakeshore (23-13). Mason Gegenheimer came on in relief.

Lakeshore had a chance to score in the fourth inning but lost a runner at the plate on an excellent throw to the plate by Corbello from left field.

Gabe Dalton had a double for the Titans.

Iowa won the seocnd state title in program history with the first coming in 2007.
