Monday in the Middle – Softball Style
The final middle school softball game of the year was played yesterday between two
of the best MS programs around. With non-conference victories over the champions
of many of the other middle school conferences, NW Guilford and Northern have proved
themselves as two of the elite teams in the county.
NW Guilford and Northern Guilford played for the second time on Monday afternoon and
the big crowd that was in attendance (players from Kernodle and NE, just to name a
few) was treated to a GREAT MS softball game.
Earlier in the season (April 2), Northern won a slug fest, 15-11 at Northern
Guilford. Due to weather postponements and scheduling concerns, the re-match was
moved back to Northern Guilford’s home field, but this time NW Guilford was the home
team. NW Guilford Lady Vikings took an early lead and held on for a 5-1 victory
over the previously unbeaten Northern Lady Nighthawks.
NW Guilford and Northern will share the Conference Title (each finishing 7-1 in conference play) and ensure years of great softball match ups between these neighboring programs.
