BIG WIN FOR THE COWBOYS
I received this text message info earlier tonight from the SWG Cowboy-Glenn Bobcat baseball game and here it is after I broke it all down:
Southwest Guilford 12 Glenn 1
Southwest wins the outright regular season conference title with a convincing win over the Glenn Bobcats. On Senior Night the Cowboys celebrated four seniors, Will Kellam, Bo Rein (NC A & T Baseball scholarship), Seth Blair, and Ethan Ogburn (NC State Baseball scholarship).
The Cowboys bats and Ethan Ogburn were the story tonite. The bats were led by Bo Rein who had a home run, a double and four big Rbi’s. Cal Sutphin was 3-3 with a double, two singles, an rbi and 3 runs scored. Brock Hudgens had a double and a single. Ethan Ogburn had an rbi single and Will Kellam again added another big hit.
Ethan Ogburn was basically perfect on the mound – the games leadoff hitter hit a ball that looked to hit off his foot, it dribbled to the thirdbaseman who appeared to throw him out at first, yet neither ump saw it hit the runner and they ruled the runner safe at first with an infield hit. After that Ethan only struck out 13 of the next 15 batters, the other two were retired on infield ground balls.
With the number 1 seed in the state playoffs secured the Cowboys play a tune up on Saturday evening at 6:30 at Finch Field against State Title winner Wesleyan. Then the conference tournament will begin on Monday with the semi finals on Tuesday at Glenn.
