Northwest did all of their damage in the third inning, scoring seven runs on six hits and taking advantage of two Ragsdale errors. Things got going when Jesse Juday led off the third by striking out, but reached on a passed ball and got all to way to third when the catcher through the ball down the right field line. Juday scored on a Stephen Hemrick single. An error on a dropped ball by the Ragsdale shortstop on a potential double play put runners on first and second and opened the floodgates. Jackson Bellinkes and Matt Bond both drove in two runs with singles and Juday drove in two more with a double as Northwest sent 12 men to the plate.
Haack went four innings only allowing one runner, that coming on a Niko Orfanedes double in the fourth. Haack was also two for three at the plate. Shane Hamlett also had two hits for the Vikings.
Northwest advances to face the Southwest Guilford / Parkland winner on Friday night at 5:00 PM at Ragsdale. The Vikings improve to 14 – 10. Ragsdale’s season ends with a 9 – 13 record.
