After New Brighton jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the top of the 1st, Hopewell responded as Jack Holsinger drew a leadoff walk, stole second base and would score on a New Brighton fielding error.

Bowen Smith came on to pitch the second inning for Hopewell and was outstanding as the set New Brighton down in order 1-2-3. Smith recorded two strikeouts and got a New Brighton batter to pop up to 3rd baseman Declan Lavia. The score remained 1-1 thru 2 innings.

New Brighton took the lead again in the 3rd inning as they scored 3 runs, a couple courtesy of a Hopewell error. New Brighton 4-1.

Hopewell had a chance in the bottom of the 3rd inning. Lucas Strano led off by ripping a ball down the 3rd base line for a double. The Vikings would put another runner on base but couldn’t drive them in. Score remained 4-1.

The game got away from the Vikings in the 5th and 6th inning as they allowed 10 runs.
