Hatchets fall in sectional finale

(Continued)

Southridge added a pair of runs against Ramsey in the sixth, then plated five runs against Moody in the seventh before freshman Benjamin Lambert came on to record the final two outs of the frame. Overall the Raiders finished with 13 hits and took advantage of three Hatchet errors. Connor Craig and Brett Nordhoff paced the Raider attack with three hits apiece.

Though disappointed in the outcome, Reed was far from depressed after the game and the strong sectional showing.

“We made the championship game, that’s something to be proud of. I know a lot of people back home were rallying behind us,” said Reed. “The boys this year showed a lot of fight. Our season didn’t turn out the way we wanted, but about the midway point you could see it turning around. About the invitational we started playing a lot better.”

Following the game Reed praised his two seniors, Dalton Devine and Eric Long.

“I want to thank Eric and Dalton for their commitment to the team, they did a very good job of leading the team. I think Dalton led us in batting average this year. He didn’t play a whole lot as a junior last year, he did a great job in that leadoff hole for us. He will be sorely missed,” said Reed. “And Eric Long played a nice first base for us and had some timely hits for us. I just appreciate their dedication. Losing seniors is always the hardest part of a night like tonight.”

On the other, Reed returns a talented group for next season that will be buoyed by its post-season success this season.

“There’s nothing to be ashamed of, I’m proud of these guys,” said Reed. “They’ve got the town excited about baseball, there’s no doubt about that. We definitely have something to look forward to next year.”
