For the second time in two years, a group of 50 co-workers from a Spencer hydraulics plant has won a $10,000 lottery prize.

Dale Schomaker, 59, of Milford, claimed the $10,000 Mega Millions prize on behalf of "Eaton Team Lotto" on Friday at the Iowa Lottery's regional office in Storm Lake along with two other members of the group: Tim Duis and Dale McGuire, both from Spencer. They won their $10,000 prize in the April 23 Mega Millions drawing.

"Two years ago, we won the same amount," Schomaker said, explaining that all members of the group work at Eaton Hydraulics Inc. in Spencer.

Schomaker, a machinist at the plant, said he buys tickets each week on behalf of the group after pooling the money he gets from his co-workers. He purchased the group's $10,000-winning ticket at Boji Junction, 2301 Okoboji Ave. in Milford. After checking the tickets and discovering the big win, he had the fun of spreading the good news.

"I just came in and made copies of the winning ticket and receipt and just handed them out to everybody," Schomaker said. "They were fairly excited to win anything."

Schomaker said his wife, Cindy, was pretty happy, too.

"I told her when I got home," he said.

Schomaker said the group has been playing together for nearly 16 years and plans to keep playing, hoping to win a jackpot someday.

The winning numbers in that night's $92 million Mega Millions jackpot drawing were: 9-21-22-32-50 and Mega Ball 10. The Megaplier® number that night was 3.

The group's ticket matched four white balls and the Mega Ball to win a $10,000 prize. Had they added the Megaplier to their ticket, they would have multiplied their win to $30,000.
