Jacob Barnes picked up the 9-4 win on the mound in the first game. He allowed one earned run and struck out six. Alex Netzley recorded two RBI’s offensively.
Maddux Hoagland got the shutout in game two, 6-0. Hoagland recorded ten strikeouts. Netzley hit a single and double, while Matt Green added a single and two RBI’s.
The Vikings hope to be back out playing against Reed City on Monday. We will post game updates based on the weather forecast Monday morning.
