The Randolph County Post 45 American Legion team is on top in the Legion tournament for the State Title and if they win tonight then they only need to win one game on Saturday to move to the State Finals. Randolph County has been beating Rowan County with regularity over the past 10 days and they could meet again in Saturday’s Area Finals.

Randolph County’s Post 45 American Legion, team coached by Ronnie Pugh out of Asheboro, features Austin Moyer and Cam Cockman from Southeast Guilford HS and Jake Ozment from Southern Guilford. Here’s the most recent news on the team from the salisburypost.com:

GASTONIA — Outs, especially the kind Rowan County compiled in a 7-1 loss to Randolph County, were counterproductive.

“We got outpitched, we got outplayed, we got outhustled, we got outhit and we got outcoached,” Rowan coach Jim Gantt said after his team suffered its first setback at the American Legion state tournament.

Rowan and Randolph entered Thursday with the only 2-0 records in the double-elimination event at Sims Legion Park.

Randolph is now the clear favorite, and Rowan (34-15) must defeat Cherryville (41-7) this afternoon(Friday) to extend its season. First pitch is scheduled for 3 p.m., and Randolph (37-11) will face Clayton (21-12) at 7 p.m.
