Rolette County blanks Cando at Section 5 Tourney

Muskrats advance to semifinals

July 21, 2010
Matt Mullally

Josh Casavant belted a three-run homer and Rolette County scored all their runs in the bottom of the second inning en route to a 6-0 victory over Cando in a first round game on July 20.

That was more than enough run support for pitcher Zach Thompson who fanned 10 Cando batters en route to the shutout. Thompson, of Towner, gave up seven hits, but was able to get key strikeouts early when the Bearcats were threatening to score.

RC registered seven hits as well, but was able to take advantage of some Cando errors in that key-changing second inning.

The win advanced RC to a semifinal showdown with Bottineau.
