from Michael Lindsay at www.hpe.com:
CHARLOTTE – For five innings, the matchup between second-seeded Wesleyan Christian and fourth-seeded Charlotte Christian had all the suspense of state championship game. One bad inning for the Trojans, however, ended all that.
With the score tied, the Knights scored nine runs in the top of the sixth inning to grab a big advantage and roll to a 13-8 win over Wesleyan on Friday in the first game of the NCISAA 3A state championship series at Charlotte Christian.
The teams play again today at 1 p.m. for the second game and again at 4 p.m., if necessary.
“Anytime you come down here and it’s for the championship, especially against these guys, you’ve got to defeat them, the crowd, the surroundings – a lot of different things,” coach Scott Davis said. “It’s hostile down here. It’s the fifth time in 10 years we’ve faced them in the (championship) series, and we’ve won a couple. But we tried to prepare them for that. We just didn’t have enough juice tonight.”
