Falcons find fire, top Mohawks


Staff Report



McDERMOTT — It took a couple of innings, but the Minford Falcons found their offensive firepower in Monday’s 17-4 win over Northwest at Hagerty Field.

The Falcons scored six runs in the top of the third — taking their first lead of the game after Northwest led 4-0 heading into the third.

A two-run fourth and a nine-run fifth helped put the Falcons in front 17-4 as Minford (9-5, 8-3 SOC II) combined for 14 hits and benefited from five Mohawk errors.

Junior Noah Martin led the Falcons at the plate, going a perfect 4-of-4 with a team-high five RBI. Sophomore Grant Wheeler reached twice via extra-base hit — and drove in three Minford runs.

Freshman Orville Tackett and senior Orville Tackett each had an RBI for the Mohawks (3-8, 3-7 SOC II).
