The Brookings-Harbor High School varsity baseball team took the Arcata baseball tournament by storm until the storm took them and caused the championship game to be rained out after just three innings.
The Bruins won two games to get to the final game in the tournament.
They beat Hoopa Valley High School in the first round 7-1 before moving on to beat Kelseyville High 9-1 to qualify for the championship game.
When asked if he thought the team would have taken their 3-0 lead and turned it into a victory, Head Coach Keith Wallin answered in the affirmative.
“I would like to think we would have gotten the job done,” he said. “We were playing pretty well at the time. The boys were fired up the whole time and ready to play despite sitting in the rain for the entire game.”
“It was great to see them play well,” he added.
The Bruins were solid in all three areas of the game, according to Wallin.
“Our pitching was phenomenal all weekend long,” Wallin said. “Defensively we only made two errors the entire tournament and offensively we hit the ball hard and put the ball in play to put pressure on the other team’s defense.
The Bruins will host Marshfield High School at 3 p.m. on Friday — weather permitting — for doubleheader action at the high school.
