The Spring Valley Hawks won their first St. Croix Valley League game Friday and the Hager City Skeeters won a key contest over Elmwood 6-5 Saturday.

The Hawks topped St. Croix Falls 8-3 at Syverson Park in Spring Valley.

Meanwhile the Skeeters topped Elmwood 6-5 on Taylor Johnson's RBI-single which scored Dennis Schutz in the bottom of the eighth inning.

The win keeps HC's playoff hopes alive going into the final week of the season while the Expos' playoff hopes were dashed after they lost Saturday and Friday night to Ellsworth 12-2 in eight innings.
