Both the Bears and Vikings went scoreless through three. Houston County put one on the board in the third when Dalton Carriker singled. Clint Wynn, who had three of the team’s five hits, also singled to move him to second. He moved to third on a sacrifice and came home on a fielder’s choice.
FPD tied it in the bottom of the seventh and Houston County won it in the ninth when Scott Daniel walked to lead off the inning. Following two strikeouts, Trent Jones then singled moving Daniel to third. Daniel scored when Jones broke for second and the Vikings attempted to gun him down.
Austin Wallace pitched five innings for the Bears. He didn’t give up a hit while walking only two and striking out eight. Wynn worked a third of an inning while Hunter Jackson worked three and two thirds. He also got the win, surrendering one hit – that a homerun that sent it into extra innings - walking two and striking out two.
