Blue Devils Split Spring Break Baseball Games

Despite being out of school for spring break, the Cordell Blue Devils played Friday and Saturday games last week. The boys split the match-ups, losing at Cache and winning at Blair.

In the first game of the weekend the boys in blue battled the Bulldogs of Cache, and found themselves coming up on the short end of an 11-3 scoreboard. The Blue Devils got on the board early with a first-inning score, but Cache quickly regained the lead in the bottom of the first and rode it through to the end.

“It was just a case of them being bigger, faster, and stronger,” said Cordell coach Bobby Blackburn. “We competed well, put the ball in play, and made plays. Raydon Kuehne made just a tremendous play at second on a running catch. Koby Celsor threw a nice game. He struck out nine, walked two, and gave up just six hits. Celsor, Kuehne, Kolby Rivera, Brady Reimer, Drayton Maddox, and James Ivy all singled.”

Devils Dominate In Home Opener Against Merritt

The Cordell Blue Devils bounced back from their opening day loss at Sentinel in fine form Friday night, handing the Merritt Oilers a blistering defeat in a game called after three innings and a 12-run Blue Devils lead.

Defensively, it was the Koby Celsor show. Over the course of three innings, Celsor struck out nine of the 11 batters he faced and walked the other two. No Merritt batter managed to reach first base.

Offensively, the work was spread out among all of the Blue Devils, with solid batting at every turn. The game’s highlight came when Raydon Kuehne stepped up to the plate with the bases loaded. Kuehne smacked a ball deep into center field, which was officially recorded as a double with two errors, but had the same effect as a grand slam, with all four runners scoring.
