Platte Valley Companies head coach Rick Kinaman said “I feel pretty good, we got a complete game, we had a pitcher that went through 80 pitches, we had a lot of good contact at the plate, we played good enough defense and ran the bases aggressively not always smart but aggressively.”

The Gering B & C Steel Junior team had a slug fest with Gering scoring 10 runs. Hits were made by Dalton Scott and Dylan Radzymski with 2 each. Austin Abbott and Chris Palomo had 1 hit apiece. Runs were scored with 3 by Scott. Abbott, Palomo, and Nick Watkins had 2 runs each. Radzymski had 1 run.

There were five lead changes going into the fourth inning but the juniors pulled out in the fourth off of a two run double by Palomo. Gering kept the lead in the fifth with three runs to Chadron’s two. Chadron scored three in the seventh but it was not enough and Gering got the 10-8 win.

B & C Steel assistant coach Grant Rimington said “we played well for our first game out but we definitely have room to improve. Overall it was a good starting point for our guys they played hard all the way through the game they played together. They did their jobs.”
The teams will be on the road on Wednesday and Thursday with a home game on Friday. Check here next week for more of the action.
