Northland Baseball Takes Hard Loss in District Opener.

Isaiah Vigil, Writer

Northland Baseball opened up district play this past Tuesday against Cypress Christian School. After a rough pre district the Cougars were looking for some kind of traction to start the 2021 district campaign. Unfortunately, that was not the case on Tuesday. Northland dropped game one to Cypress 13-1 in 5 innings. Walks, errors, and lack of timely hits were the downfall for Northland.

The Cougars only had a total of 3 hits in Tuesday’s game. With the lone RBI (run batted in) coming from Sophomore, Ben Harrison, driving a single up the middle to bring home Senior, Blake Collins, in the first inning. Senior, William Vogt, also had a double in the 4th inning but was unable to be driven home by the batters following him.

However, this isn’t the end for the Cougars baseball team. With 2 more games Cypress Christian School and plenty more games before that, Northland can look forward to an aggressive rematch against their district rivals. With game 2 coming this Friday at The Northland Baseball Field and game 3 set on April 13 at CCS.

Although things did not start well, it is not the end of the world for the Northland Christian baseball team. With 8 more district games to go there is plenty of time for the Cougars to turn it around and bring home another district title.
