La Crosse, WI (WXOW) -

UW-La Crosse continued their offensive fireworks Friday in turning in a 12-3 win over Concordia-Chicago at the Div. III Midwest Regionals.

The win move the Eagles to 37-8.  

The 37 wins are a single-season school record.

The Eagles pounded out 19 hits, led by Joel Zyhowski, who went 4 for 5.

Justin Anderson and Travis Buxton-Verstegen had three each as well.

Taylor Kohlwey had a run-scoring double in the first inning to extend his hitting streak to 48 games.

Kohlwey's hit was a part of a seven run first inning for the Eagles, who were never threatened after that.

Ben Morgan and Nate Heili had three runs batted in each as well.

"We expect to come out and compete and play hard. We took advantage of some of their mistakes early and put the runs up early and it really changed the dynamic of the game. As important we were able to tack on runs later on as the game went along," said head coach Chris Schwarz.

"Just take it like any other day. Just got to win that one game, and just got to stick with the approach and pitch the ball, hit the ball like we have been. Hopefully we come out with a win. That's what we're looking to do, so it's pretty exciting," said Heili.

UW-L will play in the Regional championship game Saturday afternoon at 3:30 at Copeland Park against Saint John's.

If they win they advance to the National Championships next week.

If they lose, they will play again Sunday.
