Northern Goes 3-0 On The

Week To Up Record To 6-1

Brooks Carr blasted home

runs in two of the Huskies’

three wins last week as

Northern rolled to victories

over Broadfording, Hancock,

and Petersburg, improving its

record to 6-1 on the season.

The Huskies cruised to a

pair of five-inning, 10-run

rule victories over Broadford-

ing and Petersburg last Sat-

urday at the Hancock Easter

Tournament.

Carr fanned 11 batters,

allowed one hit and two

base runners as the Northern

starting pitcher, and blasted

a 2-run home run in the first

inning to lead the Huskies

past Broadfording, 19-0, in

the opening game of the

tournament.

Aided by Carr’s homer,

the Huskies sprang out to a

5-0 lead after the first inning,

and added 13 more runs the

following inning. Carr added

an RBI single in the second

to finish with three hits. On

the mound, he took a perfect

game into the fourth inning

before Broadfording’s first

runner reached base on an

error. He lost his bid for the

no-hitter in the fifth.

Trevon Jones had a double

and a pair of singles for the

Huskies, who pounded out

12 hits, while Brett Oates

and Meshach Metz each had

two singles and an RBI. Lo-

gan Yommer added a 2-run

double and two singles, and

Bryce Jones doubled.

For the second time in as

many games on Saturday,

Northern used a five spot in

the first inning to cruise to a

10-run rule victory, this time

over Petersburg, 11-1.

Ryan Gallucci paced the

Huskies’ 9-hit attack with

three RBIs on a pair of sin-

gles. Metz and Noah Werner

each added RBI doubles,

and Yommer and Tyler Mc-

Clintock each drove in a run

on a single.

Yommer also recorded the

victory as the starting pitcher.

He surrendered three hits, no

earned runs, and struck out

five while going the distance.

The Huskies bagged their

third AppalachianMountain

Athletic Conference victory

of the season on Monday

at the Cove against Keyser,

11-7.

The Huskies crossed the

plate in every inning except

the sixth to outpace the Gold-

en Tornado for their sixth win

of the season.

Keyser broke out to a 5-1

lead with five runs in the top

of the second, but the Hus-

kies answered with five runs

in the bottom half of the in-

ning to take the lead for good.

Carr led Northern’s sec-

ond-inning charge by belting

a 2-run bomb. He later added

an RBI single to finish with

a pair of hits and thee RBIs.

King also had three RBIs,

two coming off a double, and

McClintock and Jones each

had two singles, with Jones

driving in a run.
