The North Platte First National Bank Seniors overpowered Cozad 18-0 on Tuesday night at Bill Wood Field.

Seniors coach Rick Ostergard said that his team took advantage of the opportunity at hand to fine tune the fundamentals.

"You play every game no matter who it is like they are the best team in the world," said Ostergard. "(A game against a team like this) gives the guys a chance to work on things they don't get to in practice."

North Platte (9-3) scored the first run of the game in the first inning when Cozad catcher Brendon Molden made a throwing error.

Ben Sukraw then made it 2-0 on a sacrifice. It became 3-0 when Dalton Pflughaupt reached on a fielding error by Cozad pitcher Mitchell Fisher. Another run came home on a wild pitch by Fisher and then Darian Allberry closed the inning out by getting an RBI on an infield single to the left side.

After scoring a run in the third, the First Nationals put up 12 runs in the fourth inning to blow it open.

Dillon Budd came on for Fisher after North Platte scored two runs. But the Nationals put up 10 more runs before Cozad even got an out in the side.

In the fifth inning, Sukraw closed it out by getting all three Cozad batters out to end the game via the 10-run rule. Sukraw was the fifth North Platte pitcher to throw against Cozad. Pflughaupt, Logan Elliott, Allberry and Drew Callaghan threw in the previous innings.

"We came out and hit well by scoring five in the first inning," Ostergard said. "We pitched for strikes and we pitched for contact."
