The much-anticipated showdown between the Bellmont Braves and the Norwell Knights featured just one team that seemed ready for the importance of the game.
With huge Northeast Hoosier Conference ramifications and a possible preview between two of the top teams in their sectional set, the Knights strolled to a 6-1 victory Thursday night over Bellmont.
WOODBURN— The big bats continue to compliment stellar pitching for the Bellmont Braves as they improved to 9-0 on the season with a lopsided 12-1 victory over the Woodlan Warriors on the road Wednesday night.
Parker Zeser needed only to see 14 batters in the shortened, five-inning contest thanks to the Braves offense and the hurler made them count allowing just one unearned run on two hits in four frames with two strikeouts.
MONROE— The Woodlan Warriors scored all the runs they would need in the top of the first inning on Tuesday night holding off the Flying Jets by a narrow 4-3 margin at the Air Strip.
Four runs on five hits made it seem as though the Warriors, now 6-4 on the season, were on their way to a blowout win. Having spent time in the coaches poll top 10, the Warriors are now floating in the top 20 after receiving a few votes in this week's poll.
Adams Central continued their dominant tennis run in the early part of the season with a convincing 5-0 win over county foes Bellmont Monday night.
Bellmont, already short-handed without the use of their number two player Brielle Adams, could not take the Jets to a third set in any of the five matches played.
MONROE— Andrew Hammond went the distance on Thursday night shutting out the Southern Wells Raiders in a 5-0 complete game win for the Jets at home.
Hammond threw a total of 100 pitches on the night facing 27 batters and earning eight K's with four walks, while allowing just three Raiders hits.
The Bellmont Braves continue to make their case as the sectional favorites on the baseball diamond.
Wednesday’s example came at the expense of the North Side Redskins as the Braves toppled their Fort Wayne foes in five frames, 10-0.
Oh, and Mason Shinabery recorded the second no-hitter in as many nights for Bellmont 24 hours after Ryan Okoniewski did it Tuesday at home against South Side.
Tough break for the Sides in Fort Wayne.
Ryan Okoniewski hit South Side's Kyle Reichert in the top of the fifth inning with a pitch that put him on first base.
It was the only time a baserunner reached in the game for the Archers as the junior hurled a complete game no-hitter to lead the Braves to an 8-0 win on Tuesday night.
Many times when gazing through the looking glass at student-athletes and their accomplishments, the student gets lost in translation.
Bellmont senior Josh Brune is the epitome of the term student-athlete and prides himself on being the best at both portions. After winning one of 13 IHSAA/C. Eugene Cato Memorial Scholarships this year, now he has proof.
Josh recently attended the banquet dinner down in Indianapolis for the event where he was a bit overwhelmed by the trip.
