Tigers, weather stops Horde cold

 

Ken Burch called due to weather  

 Despite stepping out to several leads the Golden Horde were unable to hold on as they fell to the visiting Hudson Falls Tigers 15-8 Saturday April 16 in the first game of the Ken Burch Memorial Tournament.

The Tigers were named winners of the tournament when the final  game was suspended due to a combination of weather and darkness.

In weather more suited to football than a game played by the boys of summer, both teams struggled with frequent play stoppages due to blowing clouds of dust only adding to the challenge of playing in weather barely into the 40s.

Tyler Fitzpatrick started the game from the mound but Andrew Hadeka took the loss in relief allowing the tying and go ahead runs. Hadeka had an RBI and a double in a 2-for-4 day at the plate. Senior Mike Resetar has a two-run homerun, three RBI and was 2-for-3 on the day. Kyle Davis had a double and a triple in a 2-for-3 day at the plate. Evan Hoagland was 2-for-2 with an RBI and a double.  

Granville jumped out to a first inning lead which the Tigers tied in the second. The Horde surged into the lead with a six-run fifth in response to a five-run Hudson Falls top half of the inning. The Tigers were able to put up another seven runs in the sixth and Granville could not counter.

Golden Horde head coach Dan Poucher said in the interest of safety the nightcap game scheduled between Granville and Hadley-Luzerne has been postponed. By 4 p.m. a sporadic rain had begun to fall along with the constant cold wind which blew all day. Combined with dark clouds which hovered for most of the day visibility was becoming a problem even during the second game of the day as Hudson Falls took on Hadley-Luzerne.

As of Saturday, Poucher said he did not know when the game would be made up for certain, but it could be during the school break. At some point the schools are expected to play a make up game.

Hudson Falls came out on top against Hadley in the second game, 19-10.

Horde tops Hoosick Valley

Granville grabbed its first win of the season in a Wasaren league contest at Hoosic Valley April 13, winning 4-2. Starting senior pitcher Resetar evened his overall record at 1-1 with the victory from the mound striking out seven while allow just one earned run. Luke Hahn doubled in a 1-for-2 day at the plate and has an RBI. Hadeka went 1-for-3 with two RBIs and Hoagland scored two runs in the win.

Granville (1-2, 1-3) 200 010 1 – 4 4 1

Hoo. Vall. (0-2, 1-3) 101 000 0 – 2 7 0
