NEW CARLISLE- New Prairie fell to 3-4 in Northern Indiana Conference play, dropping a 5-4 decision to South Bend Clay on Friday, April 29 at Harry “Bear” Tolmen Field.
The Colonials were first on the board, scoring four runs in the third inning off of New Prairie starter Dylan Kegley.
Kegley took the loss in a complete game effort. He allowed five runs, none of which were earned, and struck out three.
The Cougars chipped away at the 4-0 deficit immediately, as Ben McDonald doubled home Kadin Abegg in the bottom of the third for New Prairie’s first tally.
After another Cougar run in the fourth cut it to 4-2, Clay tacked on an insurance run in the top of the seventh, to make it 5-2.
The Cougars had a loud seventh of their own, as Kegley’s two run homer brought the game within one.
