Last Friday, the Kearsarge Cougars baseball team hosted the Fall Mountain Wildcats. Kearsarge was feeling great while bringing some momentum into the game after coming off of a win against Hopkinton two days earlier.
In what was only the second game of their young season, the Kearsarge Cougars took on the Fall Mountain Wildcats for the cougars home opener. Jake Vierzen took the mound for Kearsarge and stumbled a bit in the top of the first, giving up two runs.
Kearsarge would when fight back, getting a run in the bottom of the first and scoring two in the bottom of the second to take a three to two lead. In the fourth inning, the Cougars were able to open up the game by scoring three runs to increase the lead to four. After an insurance run in the sixth the Cougars held on to win the game seven to two. Kearsarge head coach, Travis Pelletier, told YCN his thoughts about the game.
Jake Vierzen would only allow two earned runs and four hits while striking out four over seven strong innings of work. He would also swing the bat very well, scoring two runs and an RBI off of two base hits. The Cougars will now look forward to face Mascoma Valley.
