Season opener!!

Brian Goodwin (5) runs back to the dugout with Justin Schmitz at his side, after Goodwin scored the game-winning run in the bottom of the 7th inning tonight.

The Jaguars baseball team won 6-5 over Upsala/Swanville Area to open the season today in Regal. The Patriots led 5-0 after 6 1/2 innings, but the Jaguars rallied with 6 runs in the bottom of the 7th. Trailing 5-4, Alex Schumann knocked a two-out base hit into center field to plate two runs to end the game. Justin Schmitz and Brian Goodwin were walked on two outs, and James Kuefler was hit by a pitch to load the bases and push across runs for a 5-4 score. Schmitz then tied the game on Schumann's base hit, and Goodwin slid safely home just ahead of the throw from center field for B-B-E's 6th run. (Check out video of that sequence below.)

Here's some video from the end of the game...I ran out of memory a little too soon unfortunately, and missed the post-game celebration.

Up next is another home game in Regal on Thursday at 4:30 against Holdingford. Hopefully the snow holds off!! We could get 3-5 inches on Wednesday.

The Patriots fell to 1-2 on the season with the loss. The Huskers are 1-0 and beat USA 13-3 in their season opener last Friday in Holdingford.
