Green Wave keep play off hopes alive with 5-0 shutout over North Shore

In what was probably their best game on the year the Green Wave got a 5 – 0 victory over a strong North Shore Panther team  on Tuesday night at Athletic park on Senior Night. Senior Right Hander Brock Daniels shined on the Mound with the complete game giving up no runs on 3 hits while striking out 7 Panther batters. Ponchatoula’s defense was near perfect committing only 1 error while turning a double play in the 3rd inning. The Wave offense posted 5 runs in the 2nd inning and Daniels and the defense did the rest as the Green Wave held on for the win. Ponchatoula posted 5 runs on 5 hits with Cameron Stewart going 2 for 2 on the night while Senior catcher Brady Perise was 2 for 3 with an RBI. The Win likely keeps the Green Wave’s play off hopes alive as they went into the game sitting in the 33rd spot in the latest updated LHSAA power ratings that came out today. Ponchatoula faces arch rival Hammond in Hammond on Thursday and closes out the season at Albany on Saturday and will likely need to win both games to stay alive in the play off race.
