The North Platte First National Bank Seniors pounded Hershland 13-0 on May 20 to get their first win of the season at Centennial Park in Hershey.

North Platte coach Rick Ostergard said that his team did what it needed to against an overmatched Hershland team.
“I thought it was a great game as far as our pitching was concerned,” he said. “We had some timely hitting and some good defensive plays.”

The First Nationals (1-2) scored its first run off of a wild pitch by Landan Maassen in the first inning.
Maassen then made a wild throw to third base trying to pick off Darian Allberry. That allowed Allberry to come across the plate and make it 2-0.

North Platte closed out the first by scoring another run as Maassen threw another wild pitch.

Hershland held North Platte scoreless in the second inning. But in the third, the Nationals scored two more runs. Drew Callaghan and Ty Brockmoller both got two-out RBI ground singles to add to the North Platte lead.

The First Nationals put it away in the fourth by scoring its last eight runs. They were able to chase Maassen from the game. Logan Weir relieved Maassen and he finished the game on the mound for Hershland.

On the other end, North Platte pitcher Jayden Kruse shut down the Trojans.

In his first outing with the Seniors after only pitching one year with the Juniors, Kruse had nine strikeouts.

Kruse will see better competition this season but Ostergard was impressed by what he saw from him.

“For a young kid, and I don’t care who it is (against), I thought he did a great job,” Ostergard said. “I am sure he was nervous with this being his first game and he wanted to prove he belonged on the Seniors. He threw strikes and he had great command of his pitches.”

The North Platte Juniors also won in Hershey on Tuesday. They beat Hershland 15-0 to extend their record to 3-0.
