Rifle and Glenwood Springs had their scheduled summer high school baseball Rifle Wooden Bat Tournament openers called off due to the soggy field conditions.
But in the afternoon both teams won their belated openers against Elizabeth. Glenwood won 9-3 and Rifle came out on top 10-2.
Glenwood’s Beau Chicoine tossed a complete-game five-hitter in the win. Sam Houpt was 2-for-3 with an RBI double and Jake Boyle hit a bases-loaded double in the first to get Glenwood off to a solid start.
Rifle’s Adam Krick allowed just four hits and also went 3-for-4 with a double. Bryce Enewold was also 3-for-4 with a triple and three RBIs, and Josiah Youland was 2-for-2 with a trio of RBIs.
Because of Thursday’s delays, the schedule has changed, Friday: Rifle vs. Palisade, 8:30 a.m.; Elizabeth vs. Palisade, 11 a.m.; and Rifle vs. Glenwood Springs, 5 p.m. All game will be at Deerfield Park.
