The Vikings got back in the game in the fifth when Brooke Humphrey and Taylor Blackmon led off with walks. Humphrey later scored on a wild pitch, and Blackmon came home on Etscheidt’s groundout for a 6-3 contest.

“Overall, I thought we played very well,” White Oak coach Sarah Novelli said. “We definitely improved in the number of errors we had in the last few games.

“I wish we would have played more games, but everyone is in the same boat. We have a ways to go. I think we have a couple of more weeks to get to where we should be for this time of year.”

The Rams added a run in the sixth when Ashlyn Gosnell singled and scored on Nolan’s triple to left.

Havelock totaled nine hits, with Brogdan going 2-for-3 with three RBIs, and Nolan going 2-for-3 with an RBI. Bushman was 2-for-4, and Crowe, Forehand, and Gosnell also collected hits. Nolan, Crowe, Bushman and Forehand  - the top four hitters in Havelock’s lineup – went 6-for-13 in the contest.

Forehand got the victory on the mound for the Rams, allowing three runs on four hits and three walks while striking out eight over seven innings.

The Vikings got hits from Corrinne Domhoff, Shelby Lyons, Etscheidt and Fonville. Humphrey took the loss on the mound, settling down after the first inning and striking out four in the contest.
