Warhawks Drop Season Opener 8-3

Southpaw Keith Christensen had a solid return to the ULM mound Friday night but the Demons of Northwestern State scored 5 runs in the 10th inning to win it 8-3.

ULM got solo home runs from Ben Soignier and newcomer Boomer Blanchard but it wasn't enough as the Northwestern State Demons took the first game of the Warhawk Classic Friday night 8-3.

The Warhawks struck first when pre-season All American Ben Soignier launched a no doubt home run over the left field fence that gave ULM a 1-0 lead after 3 innings. The Demons would get two runs back in the top of the fourth to take the lead back 2-1. Trent Grondin and Daniel Meyer did most of the damage on the night for the Demons.
