VALHALLA, N.Y. -- The Valhalla Vikings seventh- and eighth-grade baseball team finished its season this week by winning both ends of a home and home series with the Tigers of Croton-on-Hudson.
On Thursday, May 25, after receiving news that lead-off hitter Chris Viviano would be out with an injury, the Vikes traveled north where they got the game started on some timely hitting by Sebastian Pacheco, Nick Petrilli, and the anchor of the line-up, John Menona.
With the game tied in the fourth, pitcher Bret Dolan entered the game and with catcher Michael Stone calling the signals the duo shut down the opposition the rest of the way. The offense continued to add runs for a final score of Valhalla 8, Croton 7.
On Friday, May 26, the Tigers arrived in Valhalla where Vikings pitcher Patrick Gleason stymied them for a complete game victory. Brian Cusi, Brody McGuinn, Joe Pecora, and Jordan Rush provided the hits and the Vikings cruised with a 5-2 win.
