Friday night (March 29), the Whiteoak Wildcats took home a Southern Hills Athletic Conference win as they defeated the North Adams Green Devils, 4-3 in a makeup game from Thursday night. 

The Wildcats scored all four of their runs in the first four innings, trailing 2-1 after the first inning, but they tied the game with a run in the third and took a 4-1 lead with a two-run fourth inning. 

North Adams added a run in the fifth inning, as neither team scored a run in the final two innings. 

Kaden Moon-Stone (2-0) was the winning pitcher, tossing a complete game. Moon-Stone allowed three earned runs on two hits and two walks. He finished the game with nine strikeouts. 

Whiteoak totaled seven hits in the win, with Zander Roades going 2-for-3 with a double, two runs, one steal and one walk.

Eli Roberts was 1-for-2 with three steals, two RBI and two walks. Jacen Applegate went 1-for-4 with a double. Camron Storms finished 1-for-2 (double) with one run, one steal and he was hit by a pitch. 

Also for the Wildcats, Izayah Clift collected a steal, Jonah Michael drew a walk, Moon-Stone had an RBI and was hit by a pitch, and Abraham Flader collected an RBI.

WHS committed one error, and NAHS committed one error. 

“The key to the game tonight has our ability to stay out of the big inning,” WHS head coach Chris Veidt said. “We had solid team defense and an outstanding pitching performance from Kaden Moon-Stone. 

“Zander Roades, Eli Roberts, Dakota Clift and Camron Storms had solid offensive days for us as well.” 

The win moved WHS to 4-1 overall and 2-0 in the SHAC Division II standings.
