July 18, 2014

Valley City 14U No. 1 split with West Fargo in Casselton, N.D. on Monday, taking the first game 11-10 with Noelle Thompson’s big triple driving in two runs for the lead in the top of the seventh. McKenna Taylor pitched the win.

Kacee White picked up the loss in the second game, a 6-2 loss cut short in the fourth inning because it was too dark. White and Mackenzie Pederson scored in the bottom of the third to cut the deficit to 3-2, but West Fargo pulled away and Valley City’s bats could not get going again.

Valley City 14U is at State in Grand Forks, N.D. this weekend.
