In what was initially scheduled as a home game for Northglenn baseball, the Norsemen hit the road March 18 to Scott Carpenter Park in Boulder to take on the Panthers. Behind the home team’s five home runs, Northglenn fell, 15-1.
“I think we learned early that we need to live low and we can’t miss with certain pitches,” Northglenn manager Chris Mann said. “They did a great job, but we need to do a better job of throwing pitches where they need to be thrown and make them make the adjustments.”
With six first-inning runs for the Panthers, Northglenn never could recover. The hot-hitting Panthers tallied 15 hits compared to the Norsemen’s two. The one hit after the second inning from junior Jason Guzman came in the top of the fourth with 2-out.
“We have to be more aggressive. It’s a learning process for us being a younger team. We just have to come in with the mindset every day to work and to never be satisfied with where we are. As long as we are getting better every day, I’m happy with that,” Mann said.
Only four seniors (Ben Chapel, Isiah Pena, Domion Elizalde, and Caden Martinez) headline Northglenn as the youthful group should grow and make improvements throughout the long season.
As Boulder (2-0) stays unbeaten, 10 players recorded a run batted in against the Northglenn pitching staff. Scoring in all four of their innings at the plate, the Norse ran into a well-oiled offensive machine that more than likely have more days like this one.
March 19th and 21st, searching for their first win, the Norse fell to Standley Lake (10-0) and Westminster (10-2) respectively to end the week.
