SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ - The South Brunswick Vikings shut out the West Windsor Plainsboro South Pirates 6-0 in a battle of the high seas Thursday night.

Families of the Vikings gathered to see the seniors play their final regulation game of their high school careers with a “Senior Night” celebration.

Senior, Sean Nally was the hero for the Vikings, after having the game winning, three-run double with the bases loaded in the bottom of the third.

“I was just sitting back,” said Nally. “In recent at bats, I’ve been leaning forward and going after the ball. So I decided to stay back and just drive it to the gap. It was great to have everyone come out and support us. It was great for me too, all the ups and downs that I have had this season, I was able to come out and just have fun with everyone, it was great.”

As the Vikings end its regular season, the seniors were able to come out tonight and have one final game to just have fun and not worry about the outcome.

“Today is just a special day for our guys,” said head coach CJ Hendricks. “They are graduating, and we appreciate all of the hard work they put in. They deserved today, and I am glad we were able to get them a win. They went out to play and have fun; and that’s all the advice I gave them.”

The Vikings start their GMC tournament this Monday at home at 4 p.m. where they will either face Piscataway or North Brunswick.

“We are getting our regular routine in,” said Hendricks. “Both teams are tough, but we are just going to continue working on us. We can’t worry about what we can’t control. So we’re going to worry about what we’re doing, and let everybody else worry about (the other team).”
