Macks Creek battled the cold and the Lakeland Vikings Friday night and the Vikings emerged with a 12-0 win in five innings.

"Lakeland is traditionally a good ball club and they showed it tonight," Macks Creek coach Jason Trusty said. "They put the ball in play consistently, pitched well and played defense when we put the bat on the ball."

Lakeland utilized seven hits and seven walks to score their runs and Macks Creek was held to just two hits by Hunter Lane and Tanner Smith.

Cole Register took the loss in his first start, allowing five earned runs on five hits while striking out two and walking five.

"This was the end of a long week for us and our third game in three days," Trusty commented. "We have four games in four days next week so we will get another chance to see where we are in the pitcher department by the end."

Macks Creek (3-4) was scheduled to host Weaubleau Monday at 5 p.m., and will host Hermitage Tuesday at 6 p.m.
