PATEROS – Displaying a grit beyond their years the young Pateros Billygoats dug themselves out of a hole to overtake and defeat visiting Curlew, 7-6, in the final inning of play last Saturday, April 8.
Coach Bob VanLith characterized the Cougars of the Northeast 1B League as “young, like us.”
With a team comprised of only one senior, two juniors and the remainder sophomores, the Billygoats are experiencing “a lot of growing pains,” VanLith said.
Still, when it counted, Pateros settled down and got the job done.
Starting pitcher, Logan Robinson and reliever, Dakota Poole combined to strike out a baker’s dozen and Curlew’s pitching help with the rest.
Pateros collected six hits and “scored on some walks” VanLith said, before junior Doug Viebrock’s only hit drove in two runs in the seventh, including the game winner.
The young Pateros team faced some powerful opponents early in the season with four of their six league games against undefeated Liberty Bell and Soap Lake.
The Billygoats are in the middle of the Central Washington 2B League with a 2-4 league record and 4-4 overall. They were scheduled to play at Lake Roosevelt, Tuesday, April 11
Pateros will host Bridgeport at 11 a.m. Saturday, April 15, for a doubleheader and play the Raiders at home on Tuesday, April 18.
