This week, the OVS baseball team opened its season with two non-league games against Nordhoff and Cate schools.
On Monday, OVS hosted Nordhoff for the first game of the season. With a large fan turnout, the teams played a competitive match that featured a fierce OVS comeback. Unfortunately, the Spuds fell short in the season opener by a score of 11-7.
With a day of practice, the boys headed back on the field to host Cate on Wednesday afternoon.
Once again, the Spud supporters came out to cheer on the team, and OVS emerged with a convincing 9-0 victory.
Sophomore Ryan Farrell had a great game on the mound, recording 11 strikeouts while giving up only two hits and a walk. Sophomore Brody Moller had a solid game behind the plate, and OVS batters came alive early and stayed hot throughout the contest.
The team will compete in another contest on Tuesday, March 3, when it hosts Valley Christian at 3:30 p.m. at Dok Smith Field.
