So the Glenville-Emmons Wolverines sent everyone home early.

The Wolverines needed only four at-bats and Richie Mathis pitched a five-inning no-hitter as second-seeded Glenville-Emmons defeated No. 7 Medford 20-1 in an opening-round sub-section baseball game at Emmons Tuesday.

Mathis, a junior right-hander, struck out nine and walked only one while improving his record to 4-1. It’s believed to be the Wolverines’ first no-hitter since Doug Yost did it about 10 years ago.

Mathis, however, did not have the biggest day for the Wolverines. That belonged to senior Seth Stadheim, who hit for the cycle – an almost unheard of achievement at the high school level. Stadheim singled in the first inning, doubled in the second, walked and tripled in the third and hit a home run in the fourth. He scored five times and drove in six runs.

Mathis was 3-for-5 with two doubles, Andrew Greibrok 2-for-4 with a double, Brandon Brackey 2-for-4 with two runs scored. Jay Wadding, Mitch Meier, Chase Rayman and Dustin Peterson were all 2-for-3. Matt Learn doubled.

&uot;It was just one of those games,&uot; said Wolverines coach Louie Toulouse. &uot;They’re a very young team. Their pitcher just threw it over the plate and we hit it hard.&uot;

The Wolverines, 14-6, face Grand Meadow/ LeRoy-Ostrander or Lyle/Austin Pacelli at 5 p.m. Thursday at Emmons. The winner advances to the sub-section title game Monday at 1 p.m. at Austin.
