Northgate extends region winning streak to eight

Northgate's bats have worked overtime the past two days.

After rolling past Region 4-AAAA foe Mundy's Mill on 13-1 on Wednesday, the Vikings continued the trend on Thursday with a 16-1 decision over Creekside in game called after three innings.

Northgate (10-7, 9-2) has now scored 29 runs in its last two games and pushed their Region 4-AAAAA winning streak to eight games Against the Seminoles, the Viking took a 4-1 lead at the end of the first inning, but pushed eight runs across in the second and four more in the third to make short work out of the winless Seminoles (0-8, 0-6).

Northgate outhit Creekside 6-1, but took advantage of 10 errors en route to the victory.

Blake Helton, Jordan Schmits and Angelo Rivera each had two RBIs to pace the Vikings' attack.

Rivera also finished the game with a triple.

Parker Baxter, Chase Allen, Connor Wilson and Kyle Feldbauer also had an RBI each for the Vikings.

Buddy Green picked up the win for the Vikings, striking out four in two innings. Schmits also added a strikeout during his one inning of relief.

Creekside scored its only run of the game in the top of the first when leadoff hitter Isaiah Knight reached on an error and scored John Walton's base hit, but the momentum didn't last long.

The Vikings scored four runs on just one hit in bottom of the first to take the lead for good.

Rivera tripled in the inning to help bring two of the team's four runs across the plate.

Northgate's eight -run explosion in the second inning on five hits, however, put Creekside well behind. The Vikings then four unearned runs in the bottom of the third to close out the scoring.
