Norse hold off Knights in Metro Showdown

by Gary Andrews

The Northfield and Southwood baseball teams were both at the top of the TRC standings, so Monday’s match up was a critical game for each team in their hopes of winning the conference. In a game that shifted momentum several times the Norse held off the Knights 6-5.

Southwood threatened in the top of the first when Jackson Blair led off the game drawing a walk. Blair was bunted to second by Nathan Hollars before a line drive to shortstop Adam Roser made it two outs. Christian Deeter then drew the second walk of the inning, but Norse pitcher Shane Vigar recorded a strike out to end the threat. Southwood pitcher Clay Hinrichsen shut down the Norse in order in the first.

The Knights would threaten again in the second, loading the bases with no outs. Brandin Frazier walked and was followed by an Aaron Kelly single. Zach Ball would then lay down a perfect bunt to load the bases before Vigar settled down, forcing a pop up before striking out the next two. Again Hinrichsen set the Norse down in order as the game headed for the third with no score.

Christian Deeter would break the ice in the third. With one out Deeter hit a shot over the left center fence to put Southwood up 1-0. Jacob Lloyd hit a one out single and with two outs Kelly reached on a Norse error, but one run was all the Knights could manufacture. The Norse answered in a big way in the bottom of the inning. With one out Brad Bever singled and was followed by a Dylan Brown walk. Adam Roser was then hit by a pitch to load the bases when Bryce Kendall singled home Bever to tie the score, with Brown scoring on a throwing error for a 2-1 lead. Drake Richter then hit an rbi fly ball to increase the Norse lead to 3-1 before Shane Vigar singled home the fourth to make it 4-1 after three.

Norse take third at Cole Invite

by Gary Andrews

The Northfield golf team placed third Saturday at the Jeremy Cole Invite. Oak Hill won the invite with a 321, with Maconaquah took second with 325 and the Norse third with 326. Manchester was 9th and Southwood 10th.

“Honeywell Golf Course was in great shape today and the weather was near perfect. There were some really good teams playing here today, and their scores and individual scores reflected it,” said Coach Terrell.

“I think the guys played very well today. They all had a couple holes that they didn’t score well on, but they fought through it. We had two guys medal today (top 8) Braydon and Austin, and Andrew just missed it by a stroke. We have been working on our short game, and I believe it is paying off,” added Coach Terrell.
