The Huntington North High School varsity baseball team got only one hit and fell to Carroll, 10-0, in five innings at Parkview Field in Fort Wayne, on Tuesday, April 22.

The Vikings, 5-3, were humbled by Carroll hurler Taylor Goshen, who struck out 10 Vikings and walked only two in addition to yielding the lone safety.

Goshen, meanwhile, scored a pair of runs in the first and fourth inning before unloading a six-spot on the Vikings in the fifth to end the contest.

Connor West started and took the loss for HNHS, yielding two earned runs on three hits in just two-thirds of an inning. Caleb Landrum pitched 3.1 innings and gave up two earned runs on five hits before Austin Hale got rocked for six earned runs on four hits with two wild pitches in one-third of an inning. Walker Spahr gave up the Chargers final two hits.

Devon Goelz got the Vikings' lone hit, in the first inning, and stole both second and third bases, but was left stranded.

Jacob Hansen knocked in four runs to lead Carroll, 6-7.
