North Kitsap Vikings defeat Franklin Pierce, play in semifinals | Baseball

BREMERTON — The North Kitsap Vikings are two games away from winning the district tournament.

The Vikings won 7-5 over Franklin Pierce May 14 at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds to advance to the semifinals.

The Vikings play White River at the fairgrounds at 10 a.m., May 17. The winners of the semifinals advance to the finals to play for the championship and No. 1 seed to state.

Of the four teams from the Olympic League in the tournament, the Vikings are the sole team to win so far.

The Sequim Wolves, who earned a bye into the tournament with the Vikings, lost 5-0 to Fife.

The Olympic Trojans defeated Lindbergh 15-5, May 13, but lost 8-2 to Sumner, May 14.

The Klahowya Eagles won 12-2 over Orting, May 13, and lost to White River 4-2, the next day.

Except for the Vikings, the Olympic League teams are all in loser-out situations. The Wolves and Trojans play each other in the third round of the tournament. The Eagles play Franklin Pierce.

The Vikings are guaranteed at least fourth place in the tournament and a trip to the regional state tournament.
