Braileigh Clark gets the victory on the mound going three innings and giving up two earned runs while striking out five. This was a game the Spartans needed in order to stay close in the conference standings with Grand, Manti and North Sanpete.
Offensively, Emery used big first and fifth innings to put this one out of the reach of San Juan. AdriAnne Childs came up huge for the Spartans going three-of-five from the plate with one run and four RBI’s. Six other Emery players finished the game with one RBI each.
Following the victory the Spartans would take part in the Payson Icebreaker Tournament on Saturday.
