NEW MARKET – Southmont and North Montgomery met on the baseball diamond for the second time this week and for the second time, the Chargers were the victors. It was just a lot closer this time around.
After a 10-0, five-inning affair on Tuesday, it took a run in the top of the seventh for North to win this round, 3-2.
Justin Clary delivered in the seventh to plate Tucker Mosely and send the Chargers home winners. Clary finished the night with two hits and two RBIs.
Devon Zachary, Mitch Merica and Jordan Lewis all pitched for North Montgomery with Lewis getting the win – his second of the week against the Mounties.
“It was a grinder. Southmont played well. They made the plays. We couldn’t come up with a big hit. We had several opportunities early,” North Montgomery head coach Matt Merica said. “It’s a big win for us.”
