The Northern Guilford Nighthawks won their first-ever baseball game with 9th and 10th graders only on the field Thursday evening. The Nighthawks nailed it winning 10-2 over the Smith Golden Eagles.
Justin Caudill hit the first-ever home run for the Nighthawks to left centerfield and the route was on for coach Johnny Smith and his first year club.
The game was tied 2-2 in the bottom of the fifth inning and that’s when the Nighthawks went on that tear. The Nighthawks’ starting pitchers struck out 10 Smith batters on the way to earning the win and pitching a seven-inning complete game for NG. Hopefully Justin Smith will send us those pitcher’s names and put it in our comment box.
We hope to have video footage of the Nighthawks first-ever win up on the Web site sometime on Friday. We shot a full load and captured that explosive fifth inning when NG erupted.
The FIRST-EVER WIN FOR THE NORTHERN GUILFORD NIGHTHAWKS BASEBALL TEAM:GOOD JOB…
