The Nooksack Valley baseball team fell 5-2 at La Conner in a non-conference game Monday, March 25.
"It was a good game; We just came out on the wrong end," Nooksack Valley coach Scott Gelwicks said in a phone interview. "The nice part about this game was that we got behind early but the guys fought back. We were able to turn it around and put ourselves back in it."
The Pioneers (2-4) were led by Tyler Cienfuegos, who batted 2 for 4, and Tanner Myhre, who batted 2 for 4 with a run, a double and an RBI.
"We were on base and had chances to score them, we just didn't get the hits to put them in," Gelwicks said. "Noah Rawls pitched a great game and went all six innings with seven strikeouts."
Nooksack Valley travels to Sedro-Woolley for begin conference play Wednesday, March 25.
