Rockingham maximize chances to win against Morehead | Sports


“We stayed in the game and had a few wasted third hits and were able to get guys on base and get some big hits with runners in scoring position and that was the difference in the game. . .

Mason Lynch he played very well at shortstop tonight and I was really impressed with some of my outfielders Clay Jones and Evan Shotwell both had a tough high school education even tough for college catches and Hunter Thomas, he threw strikes tonight. He did well at the college level for us as a freshman last year, but he really stepped up tonight. We expect great things from him,” Rockingham head coach George Barber said.

Morehead head coach Caleb Houchins said his team had opportunities but simply failed to capitalize in key situations.

“They put the ball in play and made plays and we didn’t make the plays we needed to win. A lot of times we had guys on second base with two outs or less, but we just couldn’t get them in. You have to strike at the right time and force the other team to play. It’s a long season. I’m not depressed. The team is optimistic, but we just lost to a better team tonight,” Houchins said.

The win definitely boosted confidence after the Cougars’ disappointing 10-0 season-opening loss to Northern Guilford on March 2 and Barber said securing a road win against a team like Morehead, a pre -season in the top 20, was a step in the right direction. .
