Cousins doesn’t treat Vikings like family
March 28, 2003
South Tahoe High School’s baseball season didn’t get any easier against a tough North Valleys team and its top pitcher, Scott Cousins, on Thursday afternoon at Todd Fields.
The Vikings lost to the Panthers15-1 in an important Northern Nevada 4A league matchup, as Cousins recorded 14 strikeouts.
South Tahoe’s only run came on a Kevin Woodman hit. Marcus McKinnon got the score and Woodman went 2-3 at bat.
“That was a big win,” said North Valleys manager Rob Hastings. “We had our number one guy on the mound. South Tahoe gave up some runs and started swinging, but too late in the game.”
The Panthers are 1-3 in league play and 7-3 overall.
“We lost in a different form today, because we didn’t swing the bat impressively,” said Vikings manager Doug Russell. “Their pitcher built up his confidence all day. He’s a tough pitcher and he got stronger as the day went on.”
