Cougars 2, Eagles 1
NEW CARLISLE- Ben McDonald ended a nine-inning marathon ballgame with a walk-off RBI double to center field, as New Prairie beat South Bend Adams, 2-1, on Wednesday, May 11.

The teams traded a run in the sixth inning, but both lineups were held in check the rest of the game.
Only eight hits were recorded for the entire game, with the Cougars out-hitting the Eagles, 5-3.
Bryce Bloode knocked in the first Cougar run with an RBI single. Bloode went two for three on the day.
Garrett Ruiz was the pitcher of record on the positive side, working a perfect top of the ninth inning.
Dylan Kegley was the workhorse on the mound for New Prairie, throwing 108 pitches over the first eight innings. Adams did not have a hit after the third inning.
