Golden Eagles earn home victory

Ferndale’s Buddy Juneau gave up five hits, struck out six and walked one in a 12-2 complete-game nonconference victory in six innings over Sedro-Woolley on Monday, April 25, at Janicki Fields.

The Golden Eagles broke the game open with eight runs in the top of the sixth inning and Sedro-Woolley also committed five errors in the game.

“Buddy was good on the mound today for us,” Ferndale coach Donny Hennigs said in a phone interview. “... We took advantage (of the errors) and it was good to get that big inning late.”
