North Country Does It Again, Remains Undefeated in Tournament Play

June 28, 2013

NEWPORT-In what could only be called a shocker, North Country shut-out Lake Region in District Tournament play on Thursday.
Aidan Gariepy was dominant, getting the win for the maroon and blue.
His backstop Nick Bingham was a beast at the plate, driving in two runs in the third to break open what was a 2-0 game.
Oh, and he also yanked home as well.
With the win, North Country all but writes their ticket to the State Tournament.
Lake Region, who will be hosting States in Barton, already gets a bye into the Tourney.
