Morgan High School’s varsity baseball team, led by Head Coach Jeff Toller, continued its impressive run against non-3A opponents by knocking out Division 5A foe, Northridge by a score of 7-0 on March 13th. This victory followed the team’s debut win (6-2) over the 4A Roy Royals. With the win, the Trojans improved to 2-0.
The Trojans plated two runs in the top of the first inning when Colby Skinner walked and scored on a Kade Carrigan single that eluded an outstretched Knights’ second baseman. Carrigan stole second and later came home on Braden Brown’s sacrifice fly. In the third inning, Landon Carter began a two-out rally with a hard single and later scored on a wild pitch. Carter led all Trojans’ hitters with three hits in the game. An inning later, Tanner Hale began a rally by advancing to second base on a pair of errant throws on the same play. Hale’s grounder to third was airmailed over the first baseman’s head, and as Hale scampered toward second, the Knights first baseman sailed another throw past the shortstop. Corbin Lunt then pinch-ran for Hale, promptly stole third base and scored on a wild pitch. Morgan added another run in the fifth when Carter singled and eventually came home on Josh Duncan’s sacrifice fly. In the top of the sixth, the Trojans put the game well out of reach when Cameron Jarrett and Carter pounded RBI singles to center field.
Daniel was dominant in his second start, throwing a no-hitter through 3-2/3 innings. The Trojans’ ace allowed only two hits and permitted just one Knight baserunner to reach third base. Daniel whiffed a dozen Knights hitters en route to a complete-game shutout.
The Trojans have impressed so far. The team will travel to Salt Lake to take on Judge Memorial and then play a doubleheader in St. George later this week.
