THORNTON -- Berthoud High School scored the first runs of its game at Riverdale Ridge May 5, and the Ravens scored the next nine to win the contest 9-5.
RRHS scored two in the fourth inning, four more in the fifth and tacked on three insurance runs in the sixth inning.
Dakota Pruitt had three hits, including a two-run single in the fifth inning to tie the score. Elijah Lofton then added an RBI double to pad RRHS' lead to 6-4. He finished with two hits and two RBIs.
Mason Richard picked up the win. He gave up two hits over three innings. It was the Ravens' first game in almost two years.
Lawson Dawes had a base hit and two RBIs for the Spartans. Matt Jorissen added a couple of base hits.
"I didn't know what to expect," Ravens' coach Ray Garza. " I was a little worried to start. It ended up working for us. We have a good core of kids that gel well together. A number of kids have done a lot of work in the time we've been away, whether it's with baseball-related skills, their body. That was the biggest key. These kids had to do something on their own."
