MILL CREEK — Edmonds-Woodway pitcher Patrick Bernard threw a no-hitter to go along with a solo home run in the fourth inning, batting 2-for-4 on the day, to lead the sixth-ranked Warriors to a 4-1 victory over Jackson in a Wesco South game.
Bernard added five strikeouts to go along with his no-hit performance.
“He (Bernard) was just overpowering,” said Jackson head coach Kirk Nicholson. “He got ahead in counts, pitched strikes, and his defense helped him get out of jams in three different innings.”
Bernard’s pitching performance — not overpowering at first glance — but as Nicholson described it, “He (definitely) had enough power today.”
Along with Bernard Edmonds-Woodway was able to get an RBI double from junior Troy Reinford in the sixth inning when he drove in, who else, but Bernard — who had led off the inning with a single.
Senior Ben Roquet had the Warriors and the games only other extra base hit with a double.
With the win the Warriors stay on top of the Wesco South standings with a record of 5-0 in league play. Jackson falls to 3-3 in league with the loss.
