Date: March 23
Opponent: Buckingham Charter Knights
Location: Away at Mather Field
Scorers: Freshman Nate Jakobs, senior Ben Felix, freshman Jack Christian, junior Daniel Hernried, junior Emil Erickson, senior Jacob Durante, freshman Blake Lincoln and junior Aidan Cunningham
Leading Hitters: Jakobs (5-5), Cunningham (3-4), Felix (2-5)
Pitcher: Felix threw 117 pitches for the entire game; he had 21 first-pitch strikes and 12 strikeouts.
Inside info: One of Mather’s fields is turf. Balls move quite a bit faster on turf than on grass, making it difficult for players who don’t have any experience on turf.
Inside info from Jakobs: “We were hitting the ball very well. (Felix) threw a good game. But we really played much better defense today, only making a few mistakes.”
Next game: A doubleheader against the Faith Christian Lions on Tuesday, April 12, at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. at Faith Christian High School
