The Northland Prep Spartans – despite their youth, inexperience, difficulty finding a place to play ball in Flagstaff, and many other challenges that have come up this spring season – have hunted a crown in the central region.

That outlook disappeared when Northland Prep met one of the most successful pitchers on the Continental ball fields at the 2A conference on Thursday.

Craig Bohrer showed a solid play and received plenty of running support when Scottsdale Prep defeated Northland Prep (15-4) in five innings on the grace rule.

Northland Prep (3-3, 3-1 Central Region) scored a run in the bottom of the first to try to respond to giving up four in the top of the frame and later made it a 5-3 deficit after scoring two runs in the third but failed to keep up during his home game, losing a second straight pass and sharing the regular season with Scottsdale Prep, which also uses the Spartan mascot.

Connor Barta recorded two RBIs during his 2-3 day and scored a home run for Northland Prep, who overtook ninth place at Scottsdale Prep in the season opener and scored an 8-7 win in eight innings.

But Bohrer wasn't on the hill for this meeting.
