from the Asheboro Courier-Tribune at their on-line edition:
MCLEANSVILLE â€” Three wild pitches in the bottom of the ninth inning led to the winning run as Northeast Guilford captured the Mid-Piedmont Conference Tournament championship with a wild 14-13 victory Thursday night at NEGHS.
The Blue Comets scored four runs in the sixth and then four runs in the seventh to tie the game at 11-11 before taking a 13-11 lead in the eighth inning. But the Rams battled back to tie it with a pair of runs in the bottom of the eighth and then won it with a walk and three wild pitches by two different pitchers.
â€œIt was a game of momentum swings,â€ said AHS coach Tim Murray. â€œIt was a tough game for anyone to lose. We gave ourselves an opportunity to win after we were down and thatâ€™s all you can ask for. They battled back and battled back.â€
