Crosspoint Academy Warriors 7,

Mount Vernon Christian Hurricanes 5

SEATAC — The Hurricanes came up two runs short in the Bi-District 2B/1B Tournament championship game.

The Hurricanes fell behind 3-0 in the first inning and trailed 7-3 in the seventh before mistakes on the base paths quashed a rally.

"We put the ball in play but we didn't have enough base runners in the early part of the game to really put pressure on Crosspoint," Hurricanes coach John Burmeister said. "... costly base-running mistakes ended our rally.”

Alec Flury got the start for Mount Vernon Christian and went five innings with four strikeouts and five earned runs. 

"Alec did a great job competing on the mound and keeping us in the game even when he didn't have his best stuff today," Burmeister said. "I was proud of our team’s effort and ability to play good defense against a team who runs really well on the bases and puts the ball in play."

Jordan Boon and Oliver Ness each went 3-for-4 while Flury was 2-for-3 with a double and two runs scored.

The Hurricanes (10-7) begin state tournament play on Tuesday.
