Dickens, Tigers warm up a on cold night
SPRING VALLEY — The Princeton Tigers and Hall Red Devils ... Friday Night Lights ... gametime temperature hovering in the mid-40s. Sounds like a good night for football at Nesti Stadium. This time, though, it was two blocks down at Kirby Park in Spring Valley where the Bureau County rivals met on the ball diamond.
Two sophomore pitches warmed things up with a heated pitchers’ duel, matching goose eggs for five innings. In the end, Tiger soph Caleb Dickens benefited from just enough offense from his teammates to get the best of counterpart Austin Schmitt and the Red Devils 3-1 for his first varsity win.
“It felt good. They defense had me backed totally,” said Dickens, who went the distance, touched only for an unearned run in the seventh. “At the beginning of the season we weren’t so hot in the field but we’re getting better and better as we go so hopefully come regionals we get a lot better.
