Things couldn’t have gone much better for O’Neill on Monday as they hosted the Neligh Juniors and Seniors.
The night started off strong from the get go as the Juniors took a 5-1 win. Blake Krysl got the start on the mound and went the distance, taking down a short-handed Neligh lineup with three strikeouts and allowing just one run on three hits.
He got plenty of help from his own guys, led by Francisco Perez. He finished with two RBIs on the night. Shayne Campbell added two hits, including a triple, to keep the O’Neill bats alive.
In game two, the Seniors got another fantastic night both on the mound and at the plate in a 7-0 victory. Justin Appleby got the start, striking out nine Neligh batters and allowing just two hits in a complete game of work.
The offense was led by Shayne Campbell, who scored twice for O’Neill. The seniors also got run production out of Wyatt Liewer, Esteban De La O, Josh Cuddy, Tate Schmaderer, Bailey Thompson and Austin Hilker.
