After suffering back to back losses last week, the Lions came back with a vengeance and dominated both road games over Blue Ridge and Susquehanna.

Wednesday afternoon in Forest City, Nate Rolka blasted a three-run homer, and Jordan Edwards and Brycen Decker each had a pair of hits in the 12-2 Division IV victory.

Noah Coleman pitched the five inning game, allowing three hits and only one free pass.

On Thursday, Coleman had two hits and three RBIs to spoil Susquehanna’s senior night with a 9-3 win.

Rolka added two hits and two RBIs for the Lions.

Trail was to face Mid Valley on Monday, the first team to crack the Lions winning season.

Monday’s game against the Spartans was weather delayed and unofficially postponed until Thursday.

The Lions were scheduled to conclude their regular season on Tuesday at home against Mountain View, but that game was also delayed, with no information provided at presstime.
