The Hooker Bulldogs took care of business after a slow start, defeating the Fargo Bearcats, 10-2 in their first round game at the Shattuck Tournament.

Chad Kennedy was 3-3 with two doubles, 2 RBI, and two runs scored. Brian McCann was 2-3 with a 2-run homerun and 3 RBI. Brandon Gomez and Jordan Kennedy were each 2-2 at the plate.

“Early we did not play our best ball,” Bulldogs manager Chad Hussey said. “but we came on later. It all started with being patient at the plate.”

Hooker will face Hammon today.

The Beaver Dusters overcame one of their season-long issues only to succumb to another, losing their first round matchup with the Woodward JV, 9-1.

Chris Cage pitched five of six innings for the Dusters, and gave up no walks, but the Duster’s defense continued to struggle to make plays with the ball is put in play.

Andrew Jesko walked to lead of the game for the Dusters, and Tony Armando hit an RBI single to score Jesko for Beaver’s only run.

Beaver was “pig-tailed” into the tournament, so they will face the winner of this morning’s Laverne-Woodward JV game today at 1pm.
