Last Tuesday, Esko's season began with a mercy rule loss. Two days later, however, the Eskomos won a near-identical shellacking of their own.

Following a 12-2 loss against Two Harbors to begin the year, Esko whipped visiting McGregor-Cromwell-Wright 10-0 in a five-inning shutout affair on chilly day in Esko.

The win improved the Eskomos to 1-1 on the year.

Leading Esko was sophomore Tyler Mattson, who hurled a complete game goose egg, allowing just two hits. He also struck out five batters and never issued a walk.

Mattson also was 2-for-2 at the plate, with two runs scored and a pair of RBIs, while junior Grant Johnson scored once and knocked in another.
