Almont: The Raiders hosted Boyne City on Friday, winning the first game 14-13 but dropping the nightcap 3-0. In the first game, Almont received help from Nick Pica, who had a double and a triple with four RBI. Zach Revoldt had one hit with two RBI, Dillon Kruse had two RBI, Dan DeBlauwe was 4-for-5 from the plate and Chase Kapron earned the win on the mound. Almont secured the win thanks to a double steal from Nathan Thomas that scored the winning run.

Almont’s offense slowed down during the second game, only gathering one hit, which was from DeBlauwe. Jace Rinke, Brendan Ecker and Kruse limited Boyne City to six hits throughout the game.

Capac: The Chiefs fell to Yale in both ends of a doubleheader on Thursday, losing the first game 3-2 and the second 1-0 to start off their season. Andrew Sams pitched the first game, racking up 10 strikeouts on the game.

The Chiefs took a 2-0 lead in the top of the first, but allowed a Yale run in the bottom of the first to take the score to 2-1. Yale tied it up in the third inning and then took the lead in the fifth. Brandon Muzljakovich had two hits and Michael Foster had one. Dakota Brecht had one hit and two RBI.

“The team played well, but a couple costly mistakes affected the outcome in a wellpitched ball game by both teams,” said Barry Geliske, Capac coach.

In the second game, the only run in the game came in the fourth inning, giving Yale a 1-0 lead. Cody Harris and Thomas Tyson had one hit apiece for Capac. Michael Foster took the mound for the Chiefs.

“This was a pitchers duo,” added Geliske. “We had chances in the late innings, however, could not get that key hit we needed.”

Capac faced Armada on Tuesday following press deadlines. The Chiefs travel to Brown City tomorrow. – K.R.

DRYDEN: Thanks to a no-hitter from Jared Czape in game one, the Cardinals defeated league opponent Kingston in both games of Monday’s doubleheader. In game one, Dryden opened the game with three runs and continued to add on to its score throughout the remaining innings to run away with the easy victory.

John Delcampo led the way with two hits and three RBI. Brady Czape and Jared Czape each added two hits, Evan Pocius had one hit with two RBI and Sean Riley, Hunter Gall, Ethan Hyatt, Justin Knox, Ethan Rozanski and Cameron Theobald each recorded a hit.

In the nightcap, both teams were scoreless until Dryden opened up the third inning with two runs. The Cardinals then added two more in the fourth and five in the seventh to end the game with the victory.

Pocius led the way with three hits and two RBI. Jared Czape had two hits with two RBI, Brady Czape had two hits and Hyatt, Rozanski, Theobald, and Vince Angel each had a hit, with Rozanski adding an RBI.

Dryden visits Caseville tomorrow. – A.V

MAYVILLE: Cold bats and errors contributed to the Wildcats’ 11-1 and 10-0 losses to Deckerville Monday afternoon.

“Both games had several errors and lack of hitting. We were able to only produce three hits for both games and we just can’t win this way,” said Mayville coach Frank Licovali. – L.P.
