ROCK VALLEY-The Boyden-Hull/Rock Valley baseball team won a pitcher’s duel Thursday, May 24, as the Nighthawks slipped past Sheldon 1-0 in Siouxland Conference play in Rock Valley.

The only run of the game was scored in the bottom of the first inning. Eric Salazar had a single and later scored off a sharp single by Trey Huyser. Zach Noble also added a hit in the game, but Boyden-Hull/Rock Valley was held to only three hits.

“We had some kids with some good at-bats. We probably had three or four outs that were line drives. You’re going to have games like that, but you have to keep hitting the ball hard and they’ll find the holes,” said Boyden-Hull/Rock Valley coach Doug Bundy.

Noble was on the mound for the Nighthawks. He allowed only one hit in the game, no runs, two walks and had 14 strikeouts. He struck out the side twice in the game.

“He pitched a good game, which he normally does,” said coach Bundy. “He allowed one hit in the sixth. Just a seeing eye single up the middle. He was a little frustrated by it. Zach’s a competitor, so he wanted the no-hitter. But he pitched a heck of a game.”

Coach Bundy says his team is full of youth but they have potential.

“We had one error. Other than that we played pretty good defense,” Bundy said. “We’re a young team, especially offensively we’re going to have games like this where we might scratch out one or two runs and we have to play defense and pitch. But we’ll get there. I told the kids that we’re going to be a good team, but we have to just keep on keeping on.”
