From staff reports
Taylor Sells smacked a home run and two doubles to lead North Rowanís softball team to an 11-4 win against YVC opponent North Moore in Spencer on Friday.
Sells was wisely intentionally walked in her other two plate appearances.
Samantha Jacobs was the winning pitcher, striking out nine, walking two and allowing five hits and one earned run.
Chasity Young went 2-for-4 for the Cavaliers, and Jacobs had a double.
Jennifer Oakley, Anna Lingle, Lindsey Hinson, and Brianna Mock also contributed hits for the third-place Cavs (10-6, 9-5 YVC).
n Prep baseball
Peeler tourney champ Davie County got a serious scare from R.J. Reynolds in a CPC game played at Winston-Salemís BB&T Field on Friday night but pulled out a 2-1 victory.
ěIt was one those nights where you almost felt like it just wasnít supposed to happen for us,î Davie coach Mike Herndon said. ěWe hit some balls hard, but they were diving and catching everything.î
Davie (19-2, 9-1) trailed 1-0 and had two out and nobody on in the seventh when it managed to rally for the tying and winning runs. Joe Watson and Corey Randall walked, and Javan Phillips was hit by a pitch to load the bases.
Nick Boswell was safe at first on a bouncer to the right side. The first and second baseman both went after the ball, and no one covered first. That play tied the game at 1-1.
Alex Newman then greeted a relief pitcher with a single through the left side to win the game.
Ryan Foster (7-1, 1.36 ERA) pitched a four-hitter and struck out five for the win.
Davie coach Mike Herndon reported that roughly 1,000 War Eagle fans were in the seats at BB&T.
ěThere was a sea of orange over there, like a big playoff football game,î he said. ěWe almost got caught up in all the pageantry and laid a goose egg, but you shouldíve heard that roar when Newman got his hit.î
Davie has clubbed 22 homers and is batting .369 as a team.
The CPC tournament begins on Tuesday at North Davidson and continues Wednesday and Thursday. Davie and West Forsyth earned first-round-byes in the six-team event.
n In a key CCC contest on Friday, West Davidson topped East Davidson 5-3.
Josh Andrews was the winning pitcher.
Justin Cecil had three hits for the Green Dragons, and Tyler Hudson homered.
Taylor Warren drove in two runs for East Davidson.
West Davidson (14-5, 8-1) clinched an outright league title, while East Davidson (12-8, 6-3) fell into a tie for second place with Salisbury and Central Davidson.
Central Davidson thumped Lexington 16-5 Friday night in a game that included a 45-minute delay for scoreboard repairs at Holt-Moffitt Field. Landon Clark had three RBIs to lead the Spartansí onslaught.
n Catawba Hall of Fame
The Catawba College Sports Hall of Fame will induct Dwayne Brewington, Lonnie Chandler, Tony DiPaolo and Monte Jackson Turner in ceremonies set for noon today.
n Intimidators baseball
Lexingtonís Roberto Pena hit a walkoff homer in the ninth inning to beat the Kannapolis Intimidators 10-9.
Dan Black had tied the score with a two-run homer for Kannapolis in the top of the ninth, his second homer of the game. Drew Lee also homered for the Intimidators.
