Fargo Shanley 16, 2, Fargo North 0, 3

FARGO — Kaden Kvidera accounted for all North’s runs with a three-run home run and Brady Manly pitched three innings of hitless ball in a five-inning Game 2 victory to earn a split of an EDC doubleheader.

After Kvidera’s homer, Shanley pulled within a run on Elias Harris’ run-scoring double in the fourth and Tommy Simon’s RBI double in the fifth. But North reliever Joey Bjorkman got a strikeout to end the game and earned the save. Mason Ahern had North’s only other hit.

In the five-inning first game, Shanley’s Jordan Leininger fired a no-hitter, walking two and striking out five.

Leininger and the Deacons' offense provided more than enough firepower to back up the pitching. He was 3 for 4 with two doubles and he drove in three runs. Boden Meier was 2 for 4 with a double and three RBIs, and Adam Leininger homered and drove in two runs.

Jayden Ouart had two hits and an RBI, Josh Biver singled and drove in two runs and Landon Meier had two hits. Sam Ovsak and Simon both singled and drove in a run and Isaac Emineth had an RBI.

Shanley is now 10-4 overall and 6-1 in the EDC, while North is 10-6 overall and 4-3 in the EDC.
