Freshman Andrew Griffin's first varsity homerun couldn't have come at a better time for the Northview Knights.
Griffin smacked a two-out, three-run homerun in the third inning as Northview defeated West Vigo 4-2 at home on Tuesday night.
While Griffin's shot provided most of the offensive punch, senior David Kingery limited the Vikings to just two runs on four hits while striking out 13 over seven innings.
Northview also got hits from Brady Shoemaker, T.J. King and a double from C.J. Peters.
The win moves the Knights to 12-4 overall and 6-3 in the WIC. The rematch will be Friday evening as Northview visits West Vigo at 7 p.m.
