PLYMOUTH â€” James Hackworth and Jacob Eaton delivered a strong one-two punch on the mound for Post 27, and Plymouthâ€™s batters came through in their last time at the plate with four hits for three runs to break a 2-2 tie and claim a 5-2 sectional-opening win over visiting Valparaiso Post 94 at Bill Nixon Field Friday.
The two teams will face off again in the two-team, double-elimination tourney today at 1 p.m. with a potential third game scheduled to follow directly.
â€śAny time as far as double-elimination, winning the first one is so important,â€ť said Plymouth Post 27 coach Mike Hite.
Plymouthâ€™s Nate Kolter beat LaVilleâ€™s Zach Gurtner in a playoff on Hole 10 at Round Barn Golf Club in Rochester to win the Boys 14-15 division of a Marshall County Junior Golf Tour event.
Kolter and Gurtner both shot 80 at the Par 72 course to go one-two, respectively, at the event, while Culverâ€™s Trent Elliott finished third in the division three strokes back.
