TERRE HAUTE -- The Northview 'B' and 'C' baseball teams wrapped up last week with victories over solid opponents.

The 'C' team swept a doubleheader on Friday night against Terre Haute South on the road while the 'B' team downed Shakamak on the road Thursday evening.

The Knights' 'B' squad rallied back to pick up a thrilling victory, 6-5 over the Lakers.

Tyler Trout had a three-run homerun and Coleman Craig added another round tripper as part of a two-hit game.

"This was a crazy win, but baseball can be that way sometimes," coach Craig Trout said. "We were in a position where our fielding had hurt us (6 errors and three unearned runs), but some timely hitting helped again. After mistakes like that a team can get down, but I have to give these guys a ton of credit they didn't give up, they played hard and did what was needed to get the win."

Bryant Pestoff went 2-for-3 at the plate and both Tanner Glenn and Brock Wheeler each had hits for the Knights.

On the mound, Cole Watts got the start and went the first 2 1/3 innings, striking out four while allowing two hits and an earned run. Craig came in to relieve and went the final 1 2/3 innings with a strikeout, allowing two hits and an earned run.

On Friday night, the 'C' team remained unbeaten in a road sweep of Terre Haute South.

In the first 'C' game, the Knights won a slugfest against the Braves, 15-13 as both Jordan Girton and Dan Reberger posted three hits nights.

Girton went 3-for-3 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored while Reberger was 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI and scored once in the victory.

Denver Reberger also drove in two runs as part of a 2-for-3 night at the plate with two runs scored and Cole Watts was 2-for-3, scoring a run for Northview.

Dakota Davis took the brunt of the Braves early offensive surge in 2 1/3 innings of work as the starting pitcher. Control issues caused all three Knights' pitchers some problems as Northview walked 11 South batters in the game. Watts and Bricen White also saw action on the mound in the victory.

In game two, Dan Reberger controlled the Braves' offense, striking out 10 over five innings of work, allowing just two hits and two runs.

Devin Clark was 2-for-2 at the plate with a pair of stolen bases and Davis had two hits with two RBI. Dan Reberger also had a hit and scored once with Dylan Dyar also scoring once with a base hit.
