Benge said he was happy with how his mostly inexperienced squad played at the start of the contest. He knew the competition of the opponent and liked how Bethesda Christian competed.
“Tri-West has beat up on a lot of people this year,” he said. “We knew coming in they were hitters and free swingers so you needed your pitcher to have a good day. Still, we’re young and we can build on it. These five freshman were a little starry eyed. Overall, I’m not going home with too many complaints.”
Johnson and Clark brought in runners for the first two runs of the game in the first inning for the Bruins. A Vandyke single scored Miller in the second inning as Tri-West then led 3-0.
