Vikings steal win in opener
Placeholder Image
MINERAL POINT - Pecatonica baseball coach Jim Strommen couldn't have picked a better time to try an extraordinary play. With Pecatonica and Mineral Point scoreless in the second inning and Vikings base runners on first and third base, Strommen called for a double steal. Pecatonica senior Dakota Conwell stole second and junior Cory Swenson stole home in what proved to be the game-winning run in the Vikings' 1-0 win over the Pointers in the season opener on Tuesday.
