Katahdin looking to contend 

Tuesday's game was the opener for the Katahdin Cougars who are coming off of a 10-win season in 2021. The Cougars have consistently been in the mix in Class D north in recent years and are looking to contend for the crown once again. Hodgdon would be testing their pitching depth early in the season having played their first two games in consecutive days.

Katahdin jumped on the Hawks early by scoring 10 runs in the first inning with Wesley Pipes, Grady Ritchie, Connor Edwards, Justin Hurlbert and Jeffery Martin all driving in runs in the effort.
