The Tigers of Bethel were no match for Austin Skaggs and the Lions on Thursday. Behind a strong defense, Skaggs dominated the Tigers, pitching a two-hit complete game shutout. The offense was led by Cole Bird, Tanner Wolfe, and Ryan Waters, who all provided 2 hits. Cole Bird's double plated 2 runs and proved to be the key hit of the game. Austin Skaggs improved his season record to 7-1. The 21-4 Lions now move on to the sectional final on Thursday, 5/17 to take on the CNE Rockets. The Lions team members and coaching staff are grateful for the big and spirited crowd that showed up yesterday to support them. Thank you!
