While rain caused some interruptions and cancellations on Thursday evening, other area teams were still able to get their games and matches in. Here’s a brief rundown of all of last night’s local prep sports action.

Wildcats 10, Cardinals 1: Jasper was able to get out to a fast start against Bloomfield before the rain came and canceled the game early in the fourth inning. The Cats have one more game before the regular season wraps up as they’ll play Bloomington South at home on Monday.

Pioneers 5, Raiders 2: Boonville was able to get a few big timely hits as they shut down Southridge last night at League Stadium. Southridge was right in it trailing 3-2 heading into the final inning but Boonville put up some big insurance runs to seal the victory. Tucker Schank and Max Sermersheim drove in the Raider runs while Michael Brown took the loss on the mound.

Jeeps 15, Lions 0: It didn’t take long for Northeast Dubois’ offense to get flowing against Blue Chip foe Loogootee as they were victorious in five innings as they held the Lions to just one hit. Griffen Bauer and Owen Furhman went yard with home runs while Case Eisenhut pitched a one-hitter while striking out seven.

Trojans 170, Raiders 180:

Marksmen 14, Raiders 3: In a battle of PAC rivals, Tell City jumped on Southridge early and didn’t look back for a five-inning victory in Huntingburg. Megan Buechler drove in all three of the Southridge runs while Boo Polley was the losing pitcher for the Raiders.

Rangers 11, Tigers 10: In a game full of offense, Southridge outslugged Princeton despite being outhit 14-12.
