Recap

The Trojans and one Razorback were too much for the Hornets on a cold Monday at Park Hill (6-5). Senior Liam Henry showed exactly why he will be playing next season in the SEC as the future Razorback pitched four scoreless innings giving up two hits to take the win 7-0.

The Hornets (4-7) couldn’t put much together offensively but were able to limit any big innings stranding six in the game. Konnor Thompson was able to work out of based loaded jams in the first and second innings. Thompson walked four, struck out two and gave up four earned runs in his two innings of work. Brayden Sell allowed three earned runs and Tyler Hampton pitched a perfect seventh. But the offense never thawed as four Trojans combined on the two-hitter.

GAME NOTES:

  • LHP Liam Henry for the Trojans had a fastball approaching 90, but his weapon of choice was a 12-6 curveball that he used ahead in the count.
  • The Hornets will be licking their wounds as both Anian Nicolas-Zamora and Kyle Gaines both left with injuries. Both hope to be back for the Hornets next game on Wednesday.
  • Northtown will get another chance at the Trojans during the Oak Park Tournament next week as they’ll play again at Park Hill on Wednesday, April 18.
  • NKC returns home on Wednesday for a Varsity/JV doubleheader against St. Joseph Lafayette starting at 4:30. Weather should be beautiful, so hope to see you out there.
