Cougars 12, Tigers 2
NEW CARLISLE- After a nearly week-long weather hiatus, the Cougars returned to action on Monday, April 11 with a 12-2 run-rule victory over LaCrosse.
Originally scheduled as a road game, the game was moved to Harry “Bear” Tolmen Field due to poor field conditions at LaCrosse.
The Cougars led by a run after two innings, but eventually pulled away, scoring four in the third and five more in the fourth.
Needing just one run to end the game via the 10-run rule, New Prairie tacked on the final tally in the bottom of the fifth when Mason Workman scored on a wild pitch.
Ben McDonald doubled and tripled, while driving in three runs for the Cougars.
Bryce Bloode also had a pair of extra base hits, with doubles in the third and fourth innings.
