*****Words really can’t describe this game.***** Big-time rivalry developing between these two schools in all sports. We have seen it already in basketball, now in baseball and even though Dudley is going 4-A we’ll see it in football too next year, if they meet.
Excellent crowd on hand and most of the fans said they can’t wait for the re-match at Dudley.
Tevin Neal took the loss for Dudley, but he still went the distance for the Panthers and Ray Crawford hit a solo home run for Dudley. Coach Deon Clark said he felt like the game should have been tied at 4-4 late in the contest and that might have been the case if not for the Dudley fielding errors and hitting/base running mistakes.
There was a delay in the game with a discussion about visits to the mound per inning allowed by the Northern coaches, but take nothing away from Northern, the Nighthawks have arrived and they now stand at (2-1) in the Triad 3-A Conference and they are somewhere in neighborhood of 6-1 or 5-2 overall.
The Northern kids are focused and they have their sights set on the Triad 3-A Conference Championship. Coach Jim Clontz, the Athletic Director at Western Guilford, told me that the conference title always goes through Western Guilford and the Nighthawks beat Western at WG, the other evening(Wednesday night).
Jeremy Campbell came on to close out the game tonight on the mound for Northern just as he did the other night at Western Guilford. George Carter hit the ball hard again and early in the game the Nighthawks were finding the holes in the Dudley Panthers defense. Strubinger has hit the baseball very hard for Northern in the past two games I have seen and the catcher Scott Wells has also been a big factor in the Nighthawk wins. We are going with Scott Wells hoping we are not leaving Johnathan out. One of the Wells kids has been hurt. Didn’t catch the name of the Nighthawk starting pitcher and still not sure if he stayed in or came out after the delay.
Johnny and Justin Smith are doing a good job of building the Northern program and Ray Crawford and Deon Clark are two of the most competitive coaches that we have in Guilford County and all of these men are looking out for the kids. No coach Larry Farrer for Dudley tonight. He was out after minor surgery.
Words can’t really describe this one, can’t wait for the next meeting between Northern and Dudley.
